Protest 4th v 2nd

Yeah and I'm hoping the protest is dismissed but I'm not holding my breath. 

There's not much Dettori could do though because if a horse hangs in late it is very difficult for the jockey to adjust in time.

Edit:  Ugh ... $333 down to zero

You win some you lose some and I recall being on the other side of the ledger in the Caulfield Stakes last year.  (Benbatl should have been relegated to 2nd)

Il Paradiso was probably robbed of victory in all reality.  Those on it might feel aggrieved as it was storming through before the interference.

Yep, the old protest. Been a long time since we had one in the Cup.

I somehow managed to go the other way and get the quinella x 2 which i didnt have before the protest......However i had the trifecta boxed 10% with all the four (+ a few others) so im sure it would have paid a lot more than it did. Think it was 5k before and 3k after. I can never tell with ladbrokes what tote you get? Anyway i figured i lost around 50 which was ok.

Now what about this pick 7 winners for a share of 200K on Racing.com. It costs nothing to enter. Available Emirates. I think we should all have a go.

Yeah it did....i didnt have Master or Prince for 2nd.

I had a mate in Sydney whos been putting multis into Master of Reality since June including the winner of the Caulfield Guineas and the Cox plate. He ended up with 30k for the win and 1500 for the place......i havent heard from him yet, better give him a tingle later.

The TAB takes about 20% no matter what the dividend is on trifecta's and the like.

Fixed odds is different but tote odds has an automatic % attached.  80/20 is the usual ratio although some of the forms of betting are 85/15 or 82/18. 

So the only way the betting agencies can lose is with large bets at fixed odds.  And then they can always lay off.

e.g ... if a TAB trifecta pool is $1Million then the TAB takes $200k straight off the top.

The dividend is then worked out with the remaining $800k (depending on how many successful combinations)

Well my day ended well after a very average day, got Vow in the cup then got the winner tactical advantage in the 9th, then was on Akari  in the last and got the trifecta with it, so happy end to the day.

Ridiculous pace in the cup. nothing was going to come from begins wit that pace. Where were the European pace makers? Crazy. They shot themselves in the foot. With a decent pace one of Surprise Baby, Mer de glace or Finche would have won that - and filled the trifecta. Top runs by all 3 given the tempo.

In my various first fours had 6 of of the first 8 finishers, But no joy. With a truly run race i'm sure i would have snagged it.

Got out with Akiri in the last to make small profit for the day.

Thought the same thing.

The number of horses in it at the 200 metres you would have thought it was a 1600 metres race.

Reflects the entries I suppose. Bring back Scotch and Dry perhaps

VRC Kennedy Oaks – What you need to know (JustHorseRacing)

On the surface it looks like the winner should come from the first 4 in the betting but the Oaks can throw up upset wins and with the placings as well.  Maybe the 5,  8,  9 or the 10 can get into the finish to provide a bit of value.

Oliver/OBrien is a good combination. Did you know, he is the most successful Flemington Jockey in the last 150 years? He didnt ! :)

Yes very true G. But this is not really on-line betting, its a competition and its free to enter. You just nominate 1 horse for the last 7 races. Nearly impossible, but worth a shot for free.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    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

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    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

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. 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

    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

    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

    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. That should never have happ
