    I am talking through my pocket yes.
    However I backed Noble Witness today at Sedgefield today.
    It ran deplorably in relation to its recent win.
    It as won 3 times, twice on good ground and once on good to soft so I thought the ground today would be fine.
    However it ran like a drain and this was the explantion accepted by the Stewards
    The representative of Charles Pogson, the trainer of NOBLE WITNESS (IRE),
    which was pulled up, reported that the gelding was unsuited by the good, good to firm in places ground

    Is that bizarre or am I missing something.

    I don’t think it’s that bizarre. After all half the field pulled up in that race, including the joint fav, so something in that ground must have knocked the stuffing out of them.

    Also consider that Noble Witness had run twice in previous 3 weeks, notching up a win + a 3rd. Both over shorter with less weight. And he’d never run over Sedgefield’s fences before. Maybe he didn’t take to them. Maybe he had a headache. Who knows?
