    My own view would be that Gordon wanted as many runners as possible to accrue the maximum prize-money. Although the stats were against him, The Storyteller clearly had earned the right to run (and very likely the owner wanted to run) but that the jockey was probably told to look after him. At the weights, he had plenty in hand yesterday so it was a reasonable safety net.
    Now when you put it that way it does make complete sense. Nothing will be said though. Goes on all the time.

    With 1 day to go at Galway:


    Staked: 71.5 pts
    Return: 92.1 pts
    Net profit: +20.6 pts



    Covers the losses from Goodwood with a bit to spare, but nothing to write home (or to a public forum about)



    Missed the target with a few Weld runners each way yesterday that made a bit of a dent in my profit, and Wembly earlier in the week gave a chunk back too.
