Nice one Bingers. Feel free to post any tips you get here no matter where you get them from. We are currently having a spell in the paddock from our weekly Best Bets. We should be back early in the Spring. But any tips are always welcome. Thanks for your contribution.

Thanks WWS. Should have posted some tips from justhorseracing.com.au for the meeting at Bendigo.

Put on 3 bets, one win (at good odds), one place and one loser. Nice overall collect on these bets.

'Enable' is running in a Group 1 in the early hours of Sunday morning (Coral-Eclipse Stakes,  Sandown UK)  Only paying $2 but should win. 

One for your multi's almost as a banker if you're confident she'll win.  I might try a few from Flemington and/or Randwick with 'Enable' in a few doubles.  Just need to find a few winners in both Cities!

Go to RacingPost.com for the form.

Not much happening in Oz although I got a nice double today at Sandown (Forbid Me Not & Aristocratic Miss) Racenet.com tips this time although I've been keeping an eye on Justhorseracing.com bingers. 

Some real value in their tips too.

This thread might start livening up in early to mid August so keep an eye out.

Well 'Enable' won as expected ... they run these outstanding horses quite scarcely over there so not sure when it runs again.

Almost certainly set for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (for no.3?) in early October so there is probably a race for it in between.

The replay of the Coral-Eclipse Stakes can be found on Tab.com.au or Racenet.com

Zac Purton 5 from 7 today up in HK (so far)

And he's probably not done yet with a few at value to come.  Superior horseman is understating things.

The race caller just quipped that he'd probably win on a Merry-go-round right now!

The Spring carnivals in both NSW & Victoria just got a hell of a lot bigger.

Prizemoney has been ramped up in nearly all the feature races in both States as well as Country racing & the Country Cups.

That's competition for you and I'm all for it ... much prefer to bet on the best of the best running around.  And we're almost certainly going to see more overseas representation as the money on offer now is amongst the best in the World (if not better)

I'll post up more details later with a few links but Racenet.com has all the details in their 'News' area.

Horse racing in this Country is in fantastic shape but without the fierce competition between NSW & Vic that might not be the case ... along with of course the punting dollars and the collateral provided by the horse owners.

She's a beauty, and good to see her back in such good nick. However it was sad to see the death of Sea the Class after illness; she gave Enable a big run for her money in the last Arc as a 3yo, and the rematch was going to be something to savour.

Shame about 'Sea of Class' Tim ... looked a real horse for the future. 

But Enable is the new wonder mare although 'Almond Eye' has claims to that title as well.

Enable is running in a Group 1 late Saturday at Royal Ascot (King George & Queen Elizabeth Stakes) Up against Crystal Ocean & Anthony Van Dyck but she should have those 2 covered.  Defoe could get into the finish as well. 

'Enable' is currently showing 4-7 so the odds are prohibitive.  The exacta might pay better or maybe the trifecta.

Go to www.racingpost.com for more details.

In other news the connections of the placegetters still haven't been paid prizemoney from the 'Andrew Ramsden Stakes' run back on the 25th May.

Steel Prince & Surprise Baby had a battle down the straight with Steel Prince winning narrowly.  The winner gets an automatic entry into the Melbourne Cup.

A terrific and thrilling finish to the race Macca. Crystal Ocean was mighty in defeat but champs almost always find a way. Enable was trapped wide early and Dettori was forced to go back with only 3 behind her. Definitely the highlight of the night after what I witnessed at Marvel.

Enable just finds a way to win ... often doesn't win by much but never-the-less,  she wins!

That will-to-win might just land her another 'Arc' too DZ.

The other talking point from our point of view are the comparisons with Winx.  But as stated previously,  I prefer to celebrate all the greats as a collective.  They're all great. 

Here's the race from last night again ...

Glorious 'Goodwood' starts up on Tuesday ... a 5 day festival of racing much like the Royal Ascot Carnival.

3 big Group 1's to look out for ...

'Stradivarius' is up against Cross Counter & Dee ex Bee in the 2 mile Goodwood Cup on Tuesday

On Wednesday 'Too Darn Hot' will start close to even money favourite in the Sussex St. (Mile)

And on Thursday 'Hermosa' (9-4) will prove hard to beat in the Nassau Stakes (2000m for F & M)

Frankie Dettori will almost certainly be riding Stradivarius & Too Darn Hot whilst Ryan Moore will probably saddle up on Hermosa.

Stradivarius proved too strong at the weights in the Goodwood Cup raced overnight.  A masterful ride by Frankie Dettori all the same.  Here's the replay ...

Goodwood has been great from a punting perspective.  'Too Darn Hot' duly saluted and I had a late flutter on 'Deirdre' at terrific odds in the Mares Group 1 (Nassua Stakes) RacingPost tipped the Japanese runner and for good reason - was way overs.

I'll post up the 2 replays later on but I don't think Frankie saw 'Deirdre' coming! (took the rails run)

Looking forward to Spring fellas, particularly as footy in Spring is a write off.

What day do people feel the spring kicks off (not the carnival, just the day where the spring horses start coming back)

I’m happy to kick it off as soon as everyone wants binman. I’m just about done with the winter break and keen to get back into it.  Spring horses should be returning soon.

A lot of the good horses are back next week BM but there are only 3 stakes races up for grabs this upcoming Saturday

The Winx Stakes (formerly the Warwick Stakes) is the first Group 1 for the season - 24th August.  This year's version could well see a much larger field and because the grand mare Winx is retired,  a lot more competitive too.

Same deal for the George Main Stakes,  Turnbull Stakes & the Cox Plate.  Alizee & Avilius to step in with the absence of Winx?  Hartnell the 9yo?

Yeah I'm ready to get back into the tips DZ

The off-season for me doesn't really exist as I get right into the overseas racing (Europe & Sha Tin) To good effect too especially in July and from mid to late June. 

The winter racing in Melbourne & Sydney threw up the usual skewed results.  I steered clear for the most part but in hindsight should have followed Craig Williams & Damien Oliver.  They both rode plenty of winners.

A few feature races featuring a number of returning Spring horses highlights the meetings at Flemington & Rosehill on Saturday.  The best betting race amongst the 3 listed below being the 'Aurie's Star Hcp'

Only 5 acceptors in the Missile Stakes but it's an interesting race anyway ... picking the F4 in order in the 5 horse field might deliver an ok dividend.

2 best bets in so far.  I've put Sopressa in a 2 leg double and included DZ's pick (Oxford Tycoon) as part of an exacta.

And for others who might want to chime in,  feel free to have a go.  We don't keep individual tallies as it's all about the team!

Our strike rate has been more than handy in the last 2 seasons (August through to the end of April) Last season 118: 46 - 15 -15

A lot of the good horses are starting to return and my rule of thumb this season might be to defer to the class factor.

Well that was a bit of an inauspicious start fellas!

Ah well,  there's always the sports multi's and my favourite type involves the lower league's in England (Championship,  League 1 & League 2)

Good odds too for the +2.5 match score with a nominated winner.

Anyway,  So Si Bon wins the Airie's Star Stakes ... that's what you call a turn up for the books!  Not exactly the punters favourite either so the bookies would have cleaned up.

Alizee won the Missile Stakes as expected and looks likely to have a big Spring. 

4 Stakes races at Caulfield next week as we build into the new season.  The Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes over 1400m should attract a good field.

    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.

    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

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    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

    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.

    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

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    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
