Hope you all forgive me for the Gunnamatta tip with the Ghodeleine place 

As a cigar smoker I usually put a small amount on humidor, didnt. And he cost me a multi and The quaddie

I had a real COAD.

Getting in early.

Best bet. Flemington Race 8

no 7 $4.80 win (5.50 boosted)

Streetcar Stranger

Best Bet Doomben (Saturday)

R7 No.2 Mugatoo 6.00/1.70

Meets the topweight Zaaci 3kgs better off despite beating it home by 2 lengths in the Doncaster

Or ... the place bet in a multi could be used as 1 of 2 bankers.  I'd be surprised if Mugatoo isn't in the finish

As for your pick Gorg,  Streetcar is a big chance!

Tonight at Geelong in the last Bowing runs, the guy at work who’s family owns/part owns said watch it, but they are saying by third run it will be cherry ripe but they are keen on Just Folk in the last at Sandown on Sunday as a EW prospect.

@Macca canasta runs tomorrow, first back which I was told isn’t usually at its best (runs better second up), but it’s trial it nearly beat two sprinters over 1000 and they are very happy with how it looks. They are Hoping the track dries some more.

Ran a good race and nearly hung on to win ... our other hopes weren't in it though!

There was some value up at Eagle Farm but I only got Apache Chase up.  Got out with a reasonable percentage of the trifecta in the last at Morphettville 

But at E/Farm I left out a good horse in Exhilarates and didn't follow up on Vega One.  You live & learn!

Kukeracha & Tiger of Malay were great value as well but the punters didn't go after either of them

Canasta ran very well, pity it couldn’t quite make it. Got one winner and 7 places so I’ve a lot of bonus bets and sod all cash 🤣 
 

Yeah our two selections ran poor. But can’t always be right.

Mine is Flem Race 9, 13 Excelman $4.20/1.80

And the big watch will be on Invincible Caviar in the R4 2yo event Gorg

For those not familiar,  the dam side of Invincible Caviar is none other than 'Black Caviar' whilst the sire is 'I am Invincible'

Thrashed a stablemate in a jump out and trained by Peter Moody

$7 for the win can be had and I've backed it for the prime reason that if it does win,  I was on it first time!  Don't want to miss out!

It’s $6 on Sportsbet, I’ll wait til tomorrow and get on it with the power play as well. 
Can’t fault the bloodlines that’s for sure.

The Laddies boost is $1 on anything $5 or more

Once hitting $11 the boost is $2 (or more)

But under $5 the boost is negligible ... 4.20 to 4.60 etc etc.  I used to be able to get a $1.50 boost on anything from 4.50 to 8.50 but they've downgraded me

(B☆¿$#%&'s!!)

So Invincible Caviar is showing $6 but you can get $7 with a boost.

Suits my value (or each-way) betting

I'm surprised it's not 4.00 or less (just for the hype)

Yeah I didn’t know it was running but agree thought the hype might have have had it at shorter odds

Got 18-1 the double ... race to race too which has a bit of tradition to it

The card up at Eagle Farm is very good but there isn't a race at Rosehill that appeals.  It's like a Wednesday meeting standard wise

Flemington looks half-decent with a few Vobis races.  Got a few value tips from James Jordan for Morphettville on Saturday ('Get On - S.A' on the racing channel)

I’ll be out sat arvo so I’ll prob stick to Flemington. Already got our bets on it so might go over the rest sat morning and plug them in before I leave. I do usually prefer to place the bets race by race especially if I can see them parade.

Invincible Caviar lead and got ran down in the last 50, far from disgraced and worth looking at over the next few races.

The Frankel filly (Argentia) was most impressive though Gorg.  A real blackbooker and will relish greater distances you'd imagine

Invincible Caviar got beaten by a good one

Had a return to form today ... got 4 wins and 3 x 2nds at Eagle Form doing my own form only.  Didn't even look at any of the tipsters choices.  Charleise, Nudge & Duais stood out and they all saluted! 

And in the end went with a few of Gators picks at Rosehill and got a couple of value winners there as well

Nice work!!! I stayed at Flem and I’m even. Nearly got a 4 leg multi but not quite.

Canasta is running in the last at Randwick, if it stays Heavy or worse it’s a very good show.

Will keep an eye out Gorg

Got a couple/few that you like in the Stradbroke? 

I've had a small wager using bonus bets on Apache Chase (carrying 49.5kgs) but Vega One & Wild Planet aren't carrying much weight either

Exotics could pay really well and I might box a Trifecta in the race

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
