What are your opinions on the handicapper in Ireland and the handicap ratings in general?
I'm just having a look at some entries here for some Irish racing and some of these ratings are making me scratch my head.
One horse I'm looking at won on his debut before a close third in a winners race...108?
How does a horse go up 18 pounds for winning a maiden having previously finished seventh,then forth then eleventh by two lengths?
And in other cases you'd need to pull up about 4 times in a row to drop a few pounds. Some of these make no sense.
