    A Day at the Races

    Nice pick Wadda (and Gator) - thanks! Bonus bets at work again. Well, we went 2 from 3 today and I was betting with house money with the win bets on our picks. Terrific acceleration by the horse too - it's got some real speed.

    Yep ... it is a better percentage play just as long as we get 1 winner! With the 4 best-bets 1 winner is line ball but 2 winners should produce a profit. And it's good knowing that we all put a fair bit of thought into our best bet too. As previously stated, at this time of the year I'm looking out for what Gator or JJ like.

    Well if we always get 1 of the 3 up we should, in theory, get our money back and cover the multi bet if we back each of the 3 to win (using enhanced or booster odds) 2 winners turns a profit and 3 winners delivers a very good payout. When BM returns we'll have 4 best-bets going but the same principle applies.

    Laddies gave me some more bonus bets again Wadda so I loaded up on the win as well ... ran on nicely didn't it? Could it be our day? ... those bonus odds you got could be an omen DZ!

    And if you'd thrown 4 darts and come up with 13, 10, 16 & 17 you'd have won $57k. ha ha Or Oliver, Brayshaw, Kent & Frost as favourites ... the first 2 yeah and I do like what Frost offers ...

    Got my first collect for the day in the 4th at Randwick ... a trifecta! Only a small collect but it's nice to get on the board DZ.

    Yeah I certainly looked at Miles of Krishnan DZ but I decided to go with Gator & JJ today with a series of small win bets ... had So Splendid going in the race but no go today. You have to pick them at the right time but that's racing ... however, I'm reasonably confident of breaking even (at least) on the day.

    I like to watch 'Get On' & Sky's 'Form Line' but often on fast forward due to time constraints like yourself Wadda ... but I always listen to what Gator has to say. He is a font of knowledge with regards to the horses. We're slowly but surely getting a number of the better horses back in preparation for the Spring ... things start getting interesting from next weekend onwards with the Bletchingly Stakes And next Monday at Rosehill we'll see a star-studded trial featuring Winx, Chautauqua and a whole host of other topliners - see the full field here Australian Group & Listed Races

    A couple of value bets from Gator - he reckons both horses are paying overs. If he is unsure or non-committal I disregard but when he is confident, it often pays to take note. Flemington Race 1 No.8 Absolute Heaven $8.00 (enhanced) Randwick Race 9 No.8 Sanctioned $13.00 (boosted) And James Jordan's best bet ... Morphettville Race 2 No. 7 Embecee Lil $5.00 (enhanced) Good luck to all tomorrow! And go the mighty Demons tomorrow night ... any sort of win will do!

    I'm trying a different strategy this week DZ with a series of small win bets and just a couple of trifectas ... following Gator & JJ as well. Gator does alright in Sydney too so I've noted his picks at Randwick on Saturday. Haven't come across a standout NSW racing tipster although Brad Davidson & Ron Dufficy are quite good. Gator & JJ are very good though so both are worth following. At this time of year I'd rather rely on the experts ... the 'I Thought So' race is a good trifecta race so I'll include your choice as a top chance as well as in a multi with our 3 best bets. We're due!

    Best Bet ... Flemington Race 6 No.1 Brave Song $4.00 All the tipsters have marked the horse on top in this race and it should at least get into the finish. Although it's only raced 8 times it's first up form is excellent ... and it was running against some very good horses in the Autumn before being spelled.

    We're in the Alps for the next 3 days and also in the Alps on the weekend for another couple of mountain stages ... what a shame that Richie Porte won't be there to put the pressure on Froome and the Sky team. Rotten luck breaking his collarbone again. Official Site CyclingNews.com Tour Tracker Here are the stage profiles for the next 3 days ...

    Here'a a few short articles that might be worth a read ... Nature Strip Vs Sunlight in Lightning Stakes (July 28) Redkirk sights now set on Flemington Voodoo Lad, Brutal, Saturday's sectional stars And here's the Grand Prix de Paris (3YO Derby) that was run at Longchamp at the weekend ... n.b the jockey (Ryan Moore) ended up winning 2 Group 1 races on the same day in 2 different countries! (The July Cup & Grand Prix de Paris) What an amazing feat. And the winner of the race is an outside chance to be brought to Melbourne for the Cups in the Spring.

    The Soccer thread

    Thanks for all the correspondence from Russia, DJ ... we've thoroughly enjoyed the accounts of your travels & exploits. You made the tournament feel much more alive for us onlookers. The whole event was great viewing throughout and the best team won. France had the toughest path having to beat Argentina, Uruguay, Belgium and finally Croatia to win the prize ... a well deserved winner. Australia took it right up to France as well. And we have a winner in the tipping comp (Demonland's version of the Ballon d'Or!) Well done DZ ... you got the margin correct in the final as well! Final Tally in the Tipping Competition 22 - Dee Zephyr 19 - John Demonic 15 - Macca To the victor go the spoils ...

    A Day at the Races

    Well we're likely to see at least 2 American horses in the 'Everest' field following the commanding win by 'US Navy Flag' in the July Cup - joining 'Bound for Nowhere' with probable slots for the race. The race is shaping up as an absolute beauty ... Aiden O'Brien could walk away with the chocolates too. What a master trainer he is - and he's got a real soft-spot for Australia and the racing scene here too. You'd reckon he'll be lining up a few of his horses for the big 3 feature races in the Melbourne Spring too. Read more here ... US Navy Flag Everest bound following July Cup win
