The eve of Derby Day is form guide study time. I am very good at this. Have picked and backed my fair share of winners over the years.
I look for current form, percentages, favourable draw and reliable jockey. Eventually, HEARTSHAPED becomes my selection to win this year’s Derby.
The bet is 1% of bankroll. This is sensible money management.
Saturday morning and the racing channel announces HEARTSHAPED has been scratched. How disappointing!
I will have to change some of my minds.
