I found Beer's best bet quite interesting. I have all but discarded any horse these days ridden by Alex Solis as being ridden by a scared rider. Problem here is I feel just the same when it comes to Julian Leparoux. Both of these riders appear to have become a bit gun shy. Unwilling to take chances in even major stakes thereby rendering the horse they are riding as a non-player unless the racing gods just magically open up a hole similar to the opening of the sea for Moses. I can not place a wager on Solis or Leparoux unless they are expected to be the speed in the race.
