On paper, old GENTLEMAN MAX (Zariz-Lionette) should be a $2.30 chance to win the Cootamundra Cup this afternoon.

But he wont be.

Instead the old boy, who just turned 8, will start around $5.10 and that price is worth taking. Hmmmm, or is it?

Heโ€™ll get out because of his racing record. Heโ€™s started 125 times and won 16 races. Heโ€™s placed another 37 times and amassed over $370,000 in prizemoney.

But form pundits note one thing, an anomaly that will blow his price out.

Gentleman Max has raced 62 times on Good tracks โ€“ and has never, ever won or come close! Yep, read it again.

Heโ€™s had 62 starts on Good surface โ€“ and is a duck egg, best efforts have been some bush placings a handful of times.

Today at Coota, in the Cup….it is a Good 4.

So, can he finally overcome a massive historical deficit against him and get the chocolates today? Yes he can.

A month ago he was transferred to the stables of Keith Dryden, he of Handle The Truth fame, and in two starts under Dryden, Gentleman Max has shown a renewed zest for racing placing in the city โ€“ on a wet track โ€“ then beaten 3 lengths at Canterbury when 6th โ€“ on a Good track.

Today represents a huge drop in grade so $5 or so is a very, very good price.

Still, that 0-62 record is hard to look past!
