Do you think it is better to place a jockey who weighs close to the handicap or use a lighter jockey plus saddle weights

Answer: I think the trainer will choose the best jockey at his disposal as long as the jockey is not overweight and that the horse is carrying the correct weight for the handicap.

But using weights will not affect the performance of the horse.

What would be of concern is if the jockey had used diuretics to reduce the amount of water in his body to achieve the correct weight or starved himself.

These drastic weight reduction methods could adversely affect the jockey's ability to ride well.
