    The Long Shot Thread

    It's not exactly a novel idea since I started it on another forum some years back but this thread is for something you feel has a strong chance but is priced at 20/1 or more at oddschecker, not counting the exchanges. No need to specify each-way.

    The nature of the beast is that it's long, long odds-on that the horse will lose but very satisfying when it wins or even just outruns its price to justify the selection.

    I'll start with two for today.

    Beyond Conceit (22/1)
    Mixboy (25/1)
    Two's company, three's allowed.

    Did think about that one too, but need to keep reminding myself there are 21 more races after today!

    Pluralism of Ideas and the prosperity of any land are intertwined. Freedom of minds and skill of intellect to 'think the unthinkable' is how humanity has progressed; when minds are incarcerated nothing endures.
