The Stanford Marshmallow Experiment brings insight to why your children should wait for their sweets. In 1972 Walter Mischel of Stanford University run an experiment about deferred gratification. The study was to understand when the control of deferred gratification develops in children. But what does the ability to wait for something we desire relate to in later life?
Let's first learn a little more about the study. The children sat by a table, empty of distractions, where a marshmallow was placed in front of them. (Tempting!!!) The children were told they could eat the marshmallow but if they waited for 15 minutes, their reward would be a second marshmallow.
Over 600 children took part in the experiment. Only a minority ate the marshmallow immediately. Of those who waited (deferred gratification) one-third waited long enough to get the second treat.
Follow-up studies, 1988 and 1990, showed that ''pre-school children who delayed gratification longer in the self-imposed delayed paradigm, were described more than 10 years later by their parents as adolescents who were significantly more competent'' and the ability to defer gratification also correlated with higher SAT scores.
Perhaps I should have waited a little longer for all those things I wanted as a child?

SUMMARY: This race is dominated by Outbid. It's the horse in form and returns quickly before it can be assessed by the handicapper. It may get an easy lead but it still only comes out fourth on my ratings but does look the safest option.
6:10 Wolverhampton - Rose Garnet is either held up or tracks the leaders but may prefer a shorter trip. Masked Dance has no form over the course and distance but either tracks the leaders or can even lead but I think its chances are limited. Renoirs Lady may find this trip on the short side and think some of them will be too fast for it to catch but it has produced a time good enough to put it second in this race but it was at seven furlongs. Very First Blade likes to track the leaders and comes out joint second on my six furlong ratings so must have place claims. Daneglow has only produced slow times at five furlongs and the sixth furlong here will probably be too far. Cadmium Loch either likes to track the leaders or lead itself and is top rated. Its got the worst of the draw in stall nine but with this small field and only two other horses that are known to lead it should be able to sit handily even if it can't quite get to the front. If it does manage to lead I think it will lead all the way. If not, it should finish the strongest. Flow Chart can employ a variety of tactics and with two known front runners it may not try to lead here but it is best drawn in stall one and does come out joint second. Steel City Boy can lead at times but has been in very poor form lately and hasn't produced any fast times at this course. May prefer a five furlong race. Red Star Lady likes to track the leaders but its times are quite poor at this course.
SUMMARY: I'm hoping that Cadmium Loch can either lead all the way or sit handily and finish the strongest. I won't be having a bet in the 5.40 race although I think the favourite Outbid 5/2 is the safest option. In the 6.10 I will be backing CADMIUM LOCH 9/1, at that price it may be best to back it each way as insurance. (E.R.I.C.)
