A Day at the Races

'Exhilarates' wins the MM 2YO Classic ... came from the rear of the field and swamped them.  Looks a real horse for the future - very impressive.  Only a little horse but the closing speed is there to see.  The James Cummings stamp obviously.

Terrific victory, I was hoping she didn’t have that good a closing speed, I was on Dubious.

An almost day for me today Macca, unlucky with your picks the last two weeks, you’ve been nabbed late.

Another winner @Dee Zephyr  ... you're on fire!

I got on to Turnberry with the help of some bonus bets and Robbie Dolan did well to get the horse out.  Winner/Winner.

Well done Macca. Love your work. Strong finish by the horse.

I was with Exhilarates ... I had to be after talking the horse up all week!

Dubious just found one better DZ.   Gallant in defeat and another one to watch.  Unite and Conquer shouldn't be forgotten either - was 4 wide without cover and never really had a chance.

$11.80 the Quinella. I might go walk the dog now to avoid the PL.

Couple of Listed races at Gosford coming up on Thursday ... both good betting races too if you can sort out the form.  There are numerous chances in either race. 

As for the weekend,  there's a dearth of quality races although the Listed Kensington Stakes at Flemington sees 'Champagne Cuddles' making a return to racing in the 1000m dash.

Brad Davidson tipped me into Nahuel in the closing credits on Sky's 'Form Line' show last night ... got on at $11 and it won whilst starting at 5-2.  My rather small wager was part of a much bigger plunge!

Davo is a more than decent tipster of NSW racing too - always looking for the value runner.

Paddy Payne is taking Strategic Command to Morphetville R6, his only horse hes taking there. He often does this and wins. He is getting better and better and might be the next big trainer.

Tell them I accept Macca as long as I can bring a couple of sidekicks from DL on the show.😛

Not sure how many that is in a row, the formula seems to be working at the moment. 

It was a very strong win in the end, I thought it was done 100m or so from home.

Your pick ran on well, it just seemed the leaders had a decent break on the rest. Creedence is usually a pace horse i thought. 

El ran ok too for a first time attempt at 1400m in town. There wasn’t much separating 2nd-6th.

He did some work early, mate thinks they should have gone back from the wide barrier early.

Couple of very good Group 1 races at Sha Tin tomorrow. 

'Beauty Generation' should win the mile race but 'Conti' is a real up and coming lightly raced 5yo and it could run BG close.  Moreira on board Conti (11-2) but Zac Purton is on Beauty Generation (1-8) 

In the Sprint race Mr Stunning will take a power of beating but DB Pin,  Beat the Clock,  Fifty Fifty & Little Giant are all racing well and Mr Stunning might have to go around all of them to win (if it settles back)

Jamie is just a terrific horsewoman as well as an excellent jockey Wadda ... she doesn't have an overly aggressive style which is what some punters are looking for but just rides her mounts the way they're meant to be ridden.

Jamie has made the right move coming to the big smoke and out of her comfort zone in Adelaide.   Belwazi came in from 40-1 to 15's to win the Kensington Stakes so a number of punters were on to it.  Kudos.

Been looking for a tipster out of NSW racing to go with Gator in Victoria & JJ out of SA and after a fair bit of research I reckon Tony Brassel is the one.  His tips can be found here(Sky Racing) (on the morning of the race meetings) 

What I normally do is pick the eyes out of the tips from Gator,  JJ & now Tony Brassel looking for the best odds ... not really interested in anything too short for a straight-out bet.  More so exacta's/trifecta's with the help of their tips. 

Gator's tips & JJ's tips can be found on Racing.com on Saturday mornings as well.  Wednesday evening's for Gator's tips for the advanced knowledge.  Nathan Exelby has a bit of a reputation (QLD racing) so I might start looking at his tips to see if he is any good.

And then of course there is the Flemington Forecaster himself - @Dee Zephyr ... DZ is trumping all of them at the moment with 5 from 5 from his last 5!  I'm just wondering when the Caulfield Correspondent ( @Wadda We Sing ) is going to grace us with his presence again (?)  Our strike is improving but we need all the help that we can get!

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini
