  1. A Day at the Races

    Yeah the 'Get On' crew call James Jordan 'Safari JJ' - suit related? Anyway, we've at least got a couple of his tips in advance - I'll be getting on! They all tipped well last week especially 'Gator' who tipped a heap of winners - he's another who knows his stuff.
  2. A Day at the Races

    Hard work trying to find a best bet but here goes ... 'Kings Will Dream' - Mornington Cup Race 7 No.11 ($3.10) The horse has been in fine form, has drawn a good barrier and is trained by Darren Weir. And the extra distance should suit. $3.50 was available yesterday so the punters are coming for it.
  3. A Day at the Races

    It's not a bad field D77 ... 'Crack Me Up' is another with claims as it knocked off a very good field at it's last start (Care to Think ran 2nd) ... and again, it ran a good time in doing so. I'm going to put my first 3 in order in a trifecta and do the same with a first4 ... Winx, Kementari, Happy Clapper then Crack Me Up. I reckon the form reads that way and each combo in order only costs $1 for the full dividend (if successful) I keep going back to Sunlight & Written By and I can't split them Wadda ... they've drawn barriers right next to each other as well (4 & 5) I will be including Santos, Performer, Estijaab & Seabrook into a trifecta/first4 as well. There's about 8 or 9 realistic chances but the top 2 that I mentioned have both been ultra-impressive. I can see both horses breaking from the rest and then having a duel all the way to the line a la 'Our Waverley Star' & 'Bonecrusher' - wouldn't that be something to see?
  4. A Day at the Races

    Well that's good news Wadda ... trying to do the form is hard enough as it is! And we don't want a repeat of last year's conditions. A few points re Rosehill ... Gailo Chop is 1.80 Fav in the Ranvet Stakes ... next is Single Gaze at 7.00. Harlem is at 11.00 The 5 other runners in the Winx race are all good horses and nearly all are in good form ... 200k for 2nd is like winning a 330k race whilst the 3rd place prizemoney (100k) is like winning a 180k race. So there's a bit to play out - Kementari & Happy Clapper have been running some very slick times of late and will chase hard. You can still get 5.00 for 'Ace High' in the Guineas ... 'Vin de Dance' has firmed from 9.00 into 6.50 - the horse won the NZ Derby a few weeks ago. Hmmmmm. You can get 4.80 for 'Sunlight' & 6.00 for 'Written By' in the Slipper ... a bit overs for both? 12.00 is available for Santos. Nice odds all round. Supido, Thronum & Secret Agenda are entered for both the 'William Reid Stakes & The Galaxy.
  5. A Day at the Races

    I've reached a dead-end Wadda ... however, he might give them out on 'Get On' which airs on a Thursday night on the racing channel. I reckon we'll probably end up doing what we did last week ... but I don't ordinarily like betting on the run.
  6. A Day at the Races

    It changes a lot of the thinking doesn't it Wadda? ... especially in the Slipper where a bolter could get up if the track is really heavy. 'Written By' has won on a heavy8 though ... and then we've got 'Santos' and my favourite 'Sunlight'. The winner could come from those 3. But if the conditions are really heavy then who knows? 'Performer' has drawn wide as has Estijaab'
  7. A Day at the Races

    Well ... there's your exacta/quinella Wadda (Ace High/Cliff's Edge) I reckon they've got the others covered. D'argento could run on. The query is the weather and the state of the track ... given the forecast at best it might end up being a soft 6 or soft 7 but it could end up being heavy conditions.
  8. A Day at the Races

    Even the Tab are paying 5.00 ... and Sportsbet. Ladbrokes 4.60. But it's all-in betting I believe. It will shorten you'd reckon. A week ago it was showing 3.00 so it's another mystery.
  9. A Day at the Races

    You can get 5.00 for 'Ace High' Wadda ... which, by the way, is very good odds as I'm as confident as you are with regards to the horses chances. Might be 'All-in' betting but it could be assumed that the horse will run (?) While I'm here, here's a link to all the Podcasts from Radio Station RSN927 ... this morning's interview by Michael Felgate with trainer Colin Little was fascinating (scroll down to Racing Pulse on that link to listen) Other podcasts to look out for within that link are ... 'The Verdict' (Mondays) & 'The Breakfast Club Podcast' (Monday to Friday) ... there's a stack of others though.
  10. A Day at the Races

    It's such a shame with Chautauqua ... at his best the horse has breathtaking finishing speed. Of course, the horse has won over $8.8Million for the connections but let's hope the end isn't nigh anyway. And there's another story connected to 'Tom Melbourne' ... apparently Blake Shinn had the persuader tangled up with the reins for the last 300 metres in Saturday's Ajax Stakes ... so the horse wasn't given every chance to win. Good old Tom just can't take a trick. Anyway, a picture tells a thousand words ...
  11. A Day at the Races

    Whilst the focus well & truly goes to Rosehill next Saturday for the 5 Group 1 events there's also 3 decent races at Moonee Valley on Friday evening including the Group 1 1200m William Reid Stakes 500k (an excellent field assembled too) There's also the Sunline Stakes (Group 2) & The Alexandra Stakes (Group 3) on at the Valley as well. Anyway, here's a replay of 3 of those Group 1's from last year's Golden Slipper Day.
