Cheap Field, Find the 1/4 pole Leader:
In a cheap field lacking much talent we like to find the likely leader at the 1/4 pole which has led Members to numerous winners for members of both the WCHR and ECHR. In a weak field very few runners are making up ground down the lane. If the front runner at the 1/4 pole can be established, they’re often an excellent candidate to go wire to wire as even if this front runner begins to weaken, they’ll simply be backpedaling in FRONT of other regressing runners. This will present the illusion of a horse on the front end who’s “finding more” when in actuality the entire field is going backwards.
