6 races down at Sha Tin and Purton & Moreira share the spoils ... 3 winners each!

122 winners each for the season.  Zac reckons 145 will get it done.  Maybe.

Caulfield 2 week carnival moved to late November (probable)

So what lead up do we have for the Cox Plate & Flemington Carnival?

Sydney might cash in ... for instance the Metro Hcp (2400m) might be moved with a few other races to mid October.  Maybe that whole race day which is formerly held 2 weeks before the Caul Cup (?)

Maybe theyre listening to us Macca and the Cox Plate will actually be run on Xmas Day, but theyre just waiting for the right time to announce it possibly..

Nice win at Sale this morning by another Night of Thunder 1st starter Cherry Tortoni for Patrick Payne and Billy Egan who incidentally have a winning strike rate of 25% at the moment. Thats 2 in a row Night of Thunder 1st starters, taking into consideration the strong win by Winning Weather at Morphettville on Sat. These horses are starting to hit our shores, watch out for them.

Thanks for the heads up Wadda!

We might end up like Europe where it's just 1 long season (early May to late October over there ... Sept through to late June over here - including Morphettville,  Doomben & Eagle Farm)

The jumps season in Europe is effectively the forerunner (March/April soft tracks) so it's 8 months all up.  Our jumps season could fill July & August when the tracks are soft.  Just a thought.

Listening to Peter Le Grand (Chairman MRC) this arvo on SEN I got the impression that late November for the Caulfield Guineas/Cup carnival over 2 weeks might become a permanent fixture.  The Wednesday Caulfield meeting inbetween as well (?)

Add in the 3 or 4 G1 races in Perth over December along with the QLD summer carnival (which would include the Magic Millions) and then it's only a month off until the Autumn.

Trainers would adjust ... maybe the best horses would run every 4 weeks instead of the 2 week back-up. 

As a punter the mooted changes to the Caulfield fixture's has high appeal.  Group racing rivals the Demons & Test cricket these days.

As for Xmas day,  put some sport on I say!  Especially now where we've been starved of sport for 3 or 4 months. 

The MVRC might be looking at running the Manikato Stakes day the week before Cox Plate day.  And NSW racing will be eyeing off a few dates ... late Nov to match Caulfield?  Chasing the good weather makes sense for both States. 

Lets face it,  it's a fairly crammed schedule anyway when factoring in that the Turnbull Stakes Day & the Epsom Hcp/Metro Hcp are held just a week or 2 before the traditional Caulfield dates.

9 weeks of wall-to-wall Group 1 racing spread over the 2 main States instead of 6 weeks might make more appeal for the horse racing enthusiasts (with a few G1 & G2 races in September as a precurser)

Sandown having it's own date before Caulfield might lift the profile of that race day too ... of course, Sandown does come under the auspices of the MRC so there's perhaps an ulterior motive as well 😏

The time honoured Stradbroke Hcp is on this Saturday ... along with the G1 JJ Atkins Plate for the 2yo's.  Apparently they might have to lift the weights in the Stradbroke as there aren't enough lightweight jockeys about up there.

Dawn Passage is now the $5 favourite and is carrying 50kgs. Looks a half-decent field though with Trekking and a few others in the betting. 

And the racing returns to the UK this weekend with 3 G1's ... Coronation Cup (Fri) 2000 Guineas (Sat) & 1000 Guineas (Sun)

Stradivarius with Frankie on board is currently $5 to win the Coronation Cup.

Yeah I've had a bit of a flutter tonight Wadda

Just a couple of one-off doubles & win bets.  As you said,  some handy types running around and the favoured runners usually find their way into the finish.  Great racing to be had.

Should we resurrect the Monkey Business thread for our best bets?  AFL & NRL back in full swing as is the EPL from Thursday onwards. Maybe get our picks in before Saturday? 

We may need a break during the winter racing as has been the tradition (apart from having an interest in UK & Irish racing festivals)

Weirdest Race coverage ive ever seen. So much silence between races....Jockeys with masks.....surely harder to breathe....anyways.

Yeah i dont mind really. You can use Ascot for a BB this week if the mood takes you. Think we could do a good multi actually. Maybe make it the last week.

Monkey Business i dont mind. Its pretty hard to figure out any form atm with results like the Meter Maids beating West Coast. See what DZ wants to do.

Frankly Darling/Mogal & Battaash my multi tonight

Good thinking Wadda

The racing on Friday night & Saturday night from Ascot is first class

A lot of familiar names with 10 Group races to choose from.   We should be able to find 3 winners amongst those events.

I was on Frankly Darling as well ... Mogal should win too.  Mogul is a full brother to 'Japan' (who races in the Prince of Wales Stakes tomorrow)

Addeybb is in the same race ... won 2 G1's in Oz in our Autumn.

Mogul presented and then didn't run on.  The winner (Pyledriver) wins at 20-1.  Carrying a bit of condition was Mogul but no excuses.

Form is tricky,  all the same.  Nearly all the horses are first up after a long break.

    DELTA DEMONS by KC from Casey

    There was an ill wind blowing for the home side at Casey Fields on  Saturday but you wouldn’t have noticed if you turned up seven or eight minutes into the second quarter with the scoreboard showing the Casey Demons holding a lead of 7.5.47 to Footscray’s solitary point. Up to that stage, the depleted Dees combination had taken full advantage of the windy conditions and headed by veterans Nathan Jones, Jimmy Munro and Mitch White had came out of the blocks and plundered the Bulldogs’ defence.

    ON THE FLY by George On The Outer

    After spending most of the previous day in the air, flying between Queensland and Victoria, it was hard to imagine the Demons would be at their best.   But this team was on the fly on the field as well and produced a clinical display which saw them record a 98 point win to put aside any questions about the side being out of form.   Certainly, the Suns who have fallen away badly in the second half of the season were their opponents, but with the Demons looking for a confidence boo

    CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS by The Oracle

    This weekend, the Melbourne Football Club was supposed to embark on a tour that started with what looked like an innocent trip to the country’s sunny Gold Coast. However, the Covid19 pandemic intervened to bring them back home for this week at least. Next week, it’s off to the West Coast but conspiracy theorists are already suggesting that this interstate sojourn could take the team all the way across the country over the next month and indeed, there are cynics who even believe that it could bec

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec
