Hong Kong provides some great racing at this time of the year and one of the most memorable and thrilling finishes I have ever seen happened back in December of 2000.

Great memories of a great horse D77 ... around that time a few of us ventured to Moonee Valley to see a couple of champs in action.

Epic Macca!

Northerly looked gone before the bend as Sunline found another gear and what a cracking run by the then 3yr old Viscount....then the protest drama.

Cheers for the memories mate!

Wow what races they were. Hadnt seen the Fairy King Prawn race before, that was epic. The mare of the world was right. We must all be around the same vintage i guess. Excellent history lessons guys.

Only 9 running in the AJ Scahill Stakes but it's not a bad field and it could be a decent betting race as there are a number of chances. 

The Weir horse (Ulmann) may well start favourite and there's been a switch of jockeys for State Solicitor.   Others horses such as Profit Street,  Variation & Silverstream could all figure in the finish too. 

Link - AJ Scahill Stakes (Ascot) ... 1400m WFA $250,000 Group 3 (race time should be about 7.50pm AEDT)

The Group 2 Villiers Stakes at Randwick on Saturday might be worth a look as well.

 DemonlANZephyr has accepted for race 7 Caulfield tomorrow. 

Finally received some luck with the barriers drawing 1. Mitchell Aitken has been booked for the ride, the horse comes in at 55kg but after the claim will carry 52kg.

Its been over a year since he has saluted, hopefully a bit of luck comes his way.

Will update further later tonight or tomorrow to see how the Zephyr is travelling.

Hi Wadda, whilst we wait for the latest my mate thinks he's a decent chance. Although one of his best wins came at this track his overall record at Caulfield is pretty average to say the least so that's a concern. 

Dan should return to his usual racing pattern today of being on pace after the good draw.

Good each way odds at the moment but when a horse hasn't won for a long time it's hard to back it with any confidence.

Im sure your "mate" is confident, and probably not without reason......however, it can be a demon (intentional pun) of a track and really seems to suit some horses although Ive never really known why. If hes had a good win there however, that is a good thing. All his other runs may have had various other factors against him. 11/1 is about right i guess, maybe slightly short. Its a good 4, so should suit. Im not totally sold on the jockey, but i really wouldnt know.

I don't know much about this hockey apart from the fact the horse will carry 52kg after the claim. Some of the connections seem happy that Rhys McLeod isn't taking the ride though.

The AJ Scahill Stakes (race 7 Ascot, 8.10pm) is down to 8 runners with the scratching of Variation so I'll be looking for a greater percentage in the Tri & F4.  

Settled on 2 horses to win ... Silverstream and for a bit of value,  Zuccheros.  However, any of the other 6 horses can feature so it's then just a matter of which ones to leave out! 

Another value runner Django ran 2nd to Zuccheros over the 1400m last start and is lightly raced this campaign.  Both value runners are up in the weights though.

Yes, i was just saying its an unknown, but the weight advantage is great. There are actually some good races on today at Caulfield. I like Crystal Dreamer in the race after Dans........have put both in my quaddie!

I also had a little go at R2 Good Therapy into R6 My Psychiatrist .....couldnt resist.

I really like Silverstream also. Guess you are right, many good runners in this race. Boxed a few up for a trifecta....for the rest ill concentrate on Caulfield and see how we go.

In order for the Tri or F4 to pay a half decent dividend in the race,  a couple/few roughies need to feature in the finish - that's what I'm banking on.  At this time of the year I usually just restrict myself to the one race to bet on - had a look at Villiers Stakes at Randwick but couldn't find a combo that satisfied. 

Anyway, good luck at Caulfield today Wadda and good luck with the Zephyr @Demon77

No pre race update so far on the Zephyr, trainer might be getting a bit lazy.

Let's hope for an overdue victory.:)

Top run. There is no doubt hes a good horse. i thought they would quinella for sure with 100m to go, very unlucky not to run a place.

On a lighter note, ive got the first 3 legs of the quaddie with a 4 dollar bet for 33%...ha. only 1 pick in the last the fav. no 13 of course...

Good work Wadda on the quaddie with only a 4 dollar investment and a one out in the last leg.

A win is a win mate, I can't remember the last time I got close to winning a quaddie.

Hi D77, thank you indeed, there was a protest of course on the last race. The winner shifted across on the 2nd horse and clearly interfered, and the margin was half a neck. However another horse seemed to push the winner across....so maybe that was why it was dismissed. i was sure being horse 13 it was going to be upheld. But yes i will take it indeed and i wouldnt have got it if i hadnt been following Dan because i dont normally bother with Saturdays outside the main seasons.......so Dans beena winner to me! Cheers

Got a good percentage of the trifecta but just missed the first 4 ... it's always nice to turn a very small outlay into a decent 3 figures.

Could have been a good 4 figures but thems the breaks.  Didn't have Mr Utopia - ugh!

These small fields can still yield good dividends ... the form from that Zuccheros race held up (2nd & 3rd in that race ran 2nd & 3rd in this race)

I saw that Crystal Dreamer won again for you @Wadda We Sing ... any luck with your parlays? 

As for next week at Ascot (yep, their carnival is still going) the CB Cox Stakes (2100m) is being run ... it's a Group 2 WFA race worth $250,000 and the event is often used as a run-in to the Perth Cup (Jan 1)

If I get a chance I'll post up the field with barriers later in the week. 

There's also a big Group 1 race on next Sunday from Japan (the 'Arima Kinen') ... a top field should be assembled as the race is worth approximately $6miilion.  The free-to-air racing channel is probably covering the race.

Well i got the Quaddie with a 4 dollar investment.....so ill take their money.......but strange i got that, but i still managed to screw up the parlays! Crystal Dreamer is a beauty. There was an old surf flick called Crystal Voyager and had some early Pink Floyd music, i used to love it, had the soundtrack for years......think thats why i picked it originally or why it caught my eye....haha.

Bad luck on that FF....very very close.

Has Bowman got a ride in that Japan race?
