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.

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack

    BRIDESMAIDS AGAIN by Whispering Jack Historians of the future will have little difficulty in finding words to define the year 2020. “Covid-19”, “pandemic” and “plague” come readily to mind. The Covid-19 pandemic dominated the year in every aspect of life and it certainly didn’t spare AFL football or the Melbourne Football Club. In the circumstances however, it didn’t treat it as badly as the Spanish Flu epidemic which raged a century earlier from February 1918, through 1919 and into 19

    THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Whispering Jack

    I first saw Ben Brown on a cold Tuesday night in May, 2013 playing for the Werribee Tigers against Queanbeyan in a televised Foxtel Cup game before a sparse crowd at Etihad Stadium. His teammate and former Demon Jordan Gysberts was the star of the side’s 85-point belting of the hapless ACT club but the then 20 year old, 200cm Brown was also a stand out.  Earlier that year, the athletic big man had left his native Tasmania in an effort to make the grade after being overlooked in three drafts

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: The Cure It could be coincidental but since the AFL Free Agency and Trade Period began, the State of Victoria has recorded eight consecutive days of no new active cases and no deaths from Covid19. It might be a little early to announce that a cure for this dreaded virus has been discovered but one thing can be said with some certainty after following the ins and outs of the free agency and trading process — mankind is still a long way off finding a cure for boredom.

    CHANGES 2020 by The Oracle

    Part One: A very strange year Things might have been somewhat hairy when the 1919 football season opened up in the wake of the ending of a world war and in the middle of a pandemic that took millions of lives but it’s difficult to imagine a more unusual football season than the one that ended a week or so ago. For starters, the footy is supposed to finish on that one day in September on the MCG in mild spring weather; not deep into October at the Gabba amid warnings of tropical storms and h

    WASH, RINSE, SPIN, REPEAT! by George On The Outer

    Although the Demons got over the line in their must win final round game against the hapless Bombers, they ensured it was Groundhog Day for their supporters who well remember what happened three years ago (although, this time they at least enjoyed the success of victory). Melbourne had its customary start dominating play and having plenty of chances in front of goal, only to find itself down on the scoreboard at the first change. Inaccurate kicking, particularly from set shots would have pu

    THE LUCK OF THE DRAW by Whispering Jack

    The long awaited clash between Melbourne and Essendon is almost upon us. Thirty-seven rounds of AFL football have passed by since the two clubs met on a balmy early April night last year in a game that produced a high scoring shootout at the MCG with the Bombers prevailing by 18 points. It was their only meeting for 2019 and happened at a time when the pandemic was something on the far distant horizon. Several months later when the 2019 season ended, the AFL issued the first of its fixtures

    THERE’S STILL A HEARTBEAT by George on the Outer

    When bottom side Adelaide scrapped together a win over the Giants last week, a tiny glimmer of hope opened up for the Demons’ finals chances. The patient was in intensive care but not quite finished — there was a faint pulse, a heart beating ever so slightly but was it enough when two more wins and other results were needed to fall their way? The first step was the resuscitation of a team that had lost its last two matches against sides then sitting fifteenth and sixteenth on the ladder. On

    THE FINAL HUMILIATION by The Oracle

    On Sunday, the Melbourne Football Club that won three consecutive games by in excess of 50 points last month returns to the Gabba, the scene of the last of those victories which was a 56 point drubbing of Collingwood. The Demons got off to a good start and won every quarter with a ruthless and powerful brand of football. They kicked 16 goals that day, their accuracy in front of goal a tribute to the skills the put on display throughout the afternoon and evening. In the four matches playe

    GIVEN THE OLD HEAVE HO’ by George on the Outer

    Fremantle gave Melbourne the old heave ho’ from playing finals in 2020, in conditions that the Demons yet again failed to handle.   With the whole season on the line and the need to win to stay in contention for finals, what the fans saw was much the same as they have been witnessing so many times before — a complete debacle and capitulation against a side that sat 15th on the ladder before the game.     Promises made after the loss to the 16th placed Sydney Swans were rendered h

    GETTING THE HEAVE HO by Bananabender

    The ute barely made it up to Cairns in time for us to check into the motel, fling a cane toad out the bathroom. and head over to Cazaly’s Stadium where we took up our position on the wing. There, we saw a completely different Melbourne to the one we watched on the screen only a few nights earlier from Alice Springs. This lot wore similar colours and Maxy dominated the ruck but the similarities ended there - the Demons were simply dreadful against the Swans. They started sluggishly, were spe

    A CLANGER IN CAIRNS by George on the Outer

    Having fought back into finals contention, the Demons had it all before them when facing a lowly Sydney in Cairns.  But in typical Melbourne fashion, they threw away the opportunity to cement their spot in the eight with a clanger of a game.  Right from the start, there was little to enthuse from the Melbourne players, who appeared to think that they only had to turn up, enjoy the North Queensland sun, and take away the four points.  Compared with the furious ground wide pressure of the
