Wurm got a lift because 5.50 was too low and should not have been the start mark. Wurm won Burnie off 8.0 so 6.50 is a fair mark.
Another Burnie winner is heaps better off. He's had 1.25 lift after three runs. Lifted every time he runs. Hasn't run off the same mark two meets in a row.

Wurm ran off 5.50 at the Bay last year.So whats the problem.I would say 5.50 would be okay and he probably would have got a lift after the handicapper saw him run this season.
Always oil the squeaky wheel and theres far to much squealing going on about handicaps.
Just run ,run fair and show Leon and Im sure you will be all dealt with accordingly.

No ones squealing. Just giving a view on why Wurm got lifted to 6.50. Compared to other Burnie winner he had to go up. 5.50 was too harsh and an injustice has been corrected. Handicapper got this one right.

I take on board your point Murphy about the other Burnie winner getting somewhat rather generous lifts considering he only was on 4.00 at Camden last season.Almost getting lifted quicker than Telfan Tim.
Considering that hes not a regular runner at smaller meetings, some other athletes may be wanting to question why they are having to run multiple runs off their same mark.
Its always dangerous to compare your mark given to other athletes marks but in comparison to Wurms mark to the other Burnie winner it had to be altered but in comparison to what he had last season 5.50 was sufficient.
