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)

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.

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania.

It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    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
