That 9th race was a terrific finish....Oliver from the back of the field ..early......Ive only got 1 all up left Macca....Hellova Street into Crystal Dreamer..into ....Petition in the last. So come on Petition...a place will do.

Ok so Ascot next week huh.......i dont usually follow the overseas races, but let me know what you like......i might have a look. What time is it on??

The 'Perth' Ascot ... ha ha.  There's about 20 group races in Ascot right throughout the year.  As always, the better horses are involved so the form lines are reasonably clear.  A few of the Eastern States horses make the trip over there (for the Group races) so there's some familiarity. 

I don't often bet at Ascot but will do when there's not much prime action in the Eastern states.  Time span is about 4pm to 9pm (AEDT)

Good luck with Petition ... it should be in the finish if given a reasonable run.

Oh that Ascot...haha. Railway Stakes and all that.......I remember making a good dollar on W Pike over there, was always a good thing. Yes ill be having a look so ill see you on here then! Cheers

I do notice the only Waterhouse runner (Long Time Ago) for the day is in this last race at 19/1.....seems odd to just bring 1 horse and a long shot at that....they had a good carnival so you never know!

Well there you go....

All the form goes out the window if your horse doesn't get a decent run or is held up for a run.  Or, in the case of Petition, the horse gets too far back.  That's racing.  And sometimes in order to win one needs bad luck to befall other horses.

'Art Series' won in fine style in the G3 7th race at Ascot on Saturday ... the trainer described the horse as one who never stops trying to get to the lead.

Might be worth looking at for it's next run.

 Hi all.

Dan Zephyr has accepted on Ballarat Cup day. 

Lumped with 61kg but Jack Martin will take the ride and claim the 3kg. Once again unlucky drawing barrier 14.

Will have more updates later in the week to determine whether the horse is worth a buck or two.

Good luck trying to find a winner in the 2 feature races at Ascot tomorrow ... I'm not sure I want to tarnish my 4-3-0 record (4 picks,  3 winners,  0 placings)!!

I've had a good look at the form anyway have narrowed it down to 5 horses in the Guineas & 6 horses in the Railway Stakes.  So it's almost certainly multiples only for me.  There is some value there though so the dividends could be quite hefty with the right combinations.

Art Series caught my eye last start and although it's a step up in class,  the horse can perform well if it gets a clear run.

Race 7 (W.A. Guineas) ... Achernar StarMoney Mahar,  Salubrious,  Art Series & Sophia's Secret

And I like Pounamu for a bit of each-way value in race 8 but to be perfectly honest,  any number of horses can win this wide-open betting affair.

Race 8 (Railway Stakes) ... Black Heart Bart,  Scales of Justice,  Tom MelbourneSilverstream,  Gatting & Pounamu

Big electrical storm here in Ballarat. Heavy rain for 30 mins, track a bit chopped up past the winning post, but otherwise ok. Need the rain for the vege garden!! Havent heard anything much except the usual follow Weir, drink beer. I do like Grey Lion, Second Bullet and Mr Garcia in the Cup. The rest are pretty tricky.

In Perth i see W Pike is still ridding around and ill be on him and Silverstream. I also like Scales of justice (local fav i believe) and Black Heart Bart i always bet on regardless.

Good luck with the multiples.....im going to do a quad, but not confident.

I haven't tuned in yet Wadda - watching the cricket. 

It's a small straight at Ascot and a lot of horses can get blocked for runs in the Guineas & Railway Stakes.  Mainly because the fields are so even. 

Barrier draws are all important too ... I reckon the trifecta & first 4 dividends could be quite healthy.  I've parlayed a few as well (3 races only)

Ok nice work then Macca. Yes WA Pyke is just continuing on another 1st in the previous race. only one he missed the horse was scratched at the barrier after injuring itself......

I noticed England was 5.50....not bad. If they can get to 220 plus, you know what we are like chasing a low score! Good luck in the multiples.

Great Shot ran a close 2nd to Silverstream over 1400m (Group 2) last start so the form was there with the extra 200m to run.  Tough race to find a winner though Wadda.  My horse (Pounamu) was coming from too far back for this sort of field.

I've got 'See me Sizzle' (Pike) in a couple of multiples in race 9 (the get-out stakes)

Excellent work there Macca. I am also on the WA Pyke get out stakes! I actually only need him to run a place and all will be well. How many more Ascot Carnival race meets are there? I think its 1 more isnt it??

There's a Group 1 next week (Winterbottom Stakes 1200m) and another Group 1 a week after that (Kingston Town Classic 1800m)  ... both are million dollar races so the fields should be good.

The racing has really come on over time out of WA.  In fact, the group races continues at Ascot right up to New Years day.  I'll have a small wager on the feature races.

Yes i thought it was the Winterbottom. Not sure what the Kingston Town race is all about, but ill have a look. WA Pyke had 6 placings out of a possible 7 races. So ill just parlaying him for the next few weeks.....i honestly thought hed retired. Thanks for punting again. :)

I take it you got a nice collect Wadda ... well done.  I had no such luck but had a couple of collects to break even. 

It's got me thinking about doing 4 or 5 parlays next week (3 races only with one 5 or 6 leg parlay to win big)  And Pike will probably be on a number of fancied horses so he'll probably be my conduit (your's too I'm guessing!)

Yes well Macca, thats the strategy indeed. Because you have situations like yesterday where one leg got shot because the horse got injured at the barrier, which was my second leg. No subs in Parlays (although there damn well should be!) Several shorter legs helps with that one or two bad legs, such as Silverstream yesterday.

There is that bet stratergy however where you can miss a leg by pushing another button, and it allows the carry over, despite one leg missing, although i tried it once and it didnt seem to pay very much at all and it cost double to put on i think?? Ill have to investigate again.

But he certainly put on a clinic yesterday and does it regularly over there as he gets a lot of good rides. Well im certainly keen to have another go, im a fair way in front now. Still dont want to give it back too quick. Had several reds in Mr Pykes honor last night. Oow my head. :)

I was just having a look at the Moonga Stakes at Caulfield back in March won by Voodoo Lad ( a fav of mine). Dan Zephyr had a pretty good run, looks like the weights might have beaten him at the end there, but it was up there most of the way. He will win some races.

https://www.racing.com/videos/2016-10-15/voodoo-lads-moonga-stakes

Voodoo Lad goes around in the Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot on Saturday. 26/1

Opps, no he doesnt, didnt make the final field......must have been why he was 26/1!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic.

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender.
