Here'a a few short articles that might be worth a read ...

Nature Strip Vs Sunlight in Lightning Stakes (July 28)

Redkirk sights now set on Flemington

Voodoo Lad,  Brutal,  Saturday's sectional stars

 

And here's the Grand Prix de Paris (3YO Derby) that was run at Longchamp at the weekend ... n.b the jockey (Ryan Moore) ended up winning 2 Group 1 races on the same day in 2 different countries! (The July Cup &  Grand Prix de Paris)  What an amazing feat.

And the winner of the race is an outside chance to be brought to Melbourne for the Cups in the Spring.

Best Bet ...

Flemington  Race 6  No.1 Brave Song $4.00

All the tipsters have marked the horse on top in this race and it should at least get into the finish.  Although it's only raced 8 times it's first up form is excellent ... and it was running against some very good horses in the Autumn before being spelled.

Best Bet:

Randwick R7 No3 - I Thought So $4.00

This is a very tricky race. The horse might go on with it now after breaking a run of outs. Hasn’t won on a Good track but he only just missed back on the 26th of May on the same track and distance on a Good track. It’s in good form, barrier 1 and with Shinn to ride, I believe it’s a realistic chance of winning.

Haha @Macca Were we studying the form at the same time?😁

I'm trying a different strategy this week DZ with a series of small win bets and just a couple of trifectas ... following Gator & JJ as well.  Gator does alright in Sydney too so I've noted his picks at Randwick on Saturday. 

Haven't come across a standout NSW racing tipster although Brad Davidson & Ron Dufficy are quite good.  Gator & JJ are very good though so both are worth following.

At this time of year I'd rather rely on the experts ... the 'I Thought So' race is a good trifecta race so I'll include your choice as a top chance as well as in a multi with our 3 best bets.  We're due!

That would be some win if we can get up tomorrow night Wadda. I notice the Dees have the wobbles in the markets after Hibbo’s quad injury.

The races have been somewhat of a grind this winter, a couple of winners here and there have kept the ledger even to a degree. Bring on the spring I say.

As @Macca stated - We’re due!

A Best Bet multi win and a Dees win down at Sleepy Hollow? I’d like to see that!

Well i took the BBs into the Dees at the line which allows a margin of +10.5. Got 108/1 boosted.

Im an optimist i guess...

A couple of value bets from Gator - he reckons both horses are paying overs.  If he is unsure or non-committal I disregard but when he is confident,  it often pays to take note. 

Flemington  Race 1  No.8 Absolute Heaven  $8.00 (enhanced)

Randwick  Race 9  No.8 Sanctioned  $13.00 (boosted)

And James Jordan's best bet ...

Morphettville  Race 2  No. 7 Embecee Lil  $5.00 (enhanced)

 

Good luck to all tomorrow!

And go the mighty Demons tomorrow night ... any sort of win will do!

They really need to introduce winter racing on Friday nights at the Valley. Beats watching some of these horror Friday night AFL games. 

Forgot to mention earlier. The boys from work have a runner tomorrow at Morphetville Race 6 Number 5 Captain Harry ($7.50).

It ran a couple of weeks ago at Caulfield where it failed. Again, maybe just an interest runner simply because the Weir factor and choosing to take the horse to Adelaide.

I like to watch 'Get On' & Sky's 'Form Line' but often on fast forward due to time constraints like yourself Wadda ... but I always listen to what Gator has to say.  He is a font of knowledge with regards to the horses.

We're slowly but surely getting a number of the better horses back in preparation for the Spring ... things start getting interesting from next weekend onwards with the Bletchingly Stakes

And next Monday at Rosehill we'll see a star-studded trial featuring Winx,  Chautauqua and a whole host of other topliners - see the full field here

Good start to the day for one punter.

Shortly before R2 commenced at Doomben the Sky host was alerted by Tab that a punter had a 15K multi going at $6. 

His first leg was the favourite at Townsville R1 which saluted into the favourite at Doomben R2. 

 

Edit: Miles Of Krishan wins the second at Flem. That was one of your previous bests @Macca from memory. Nice win price too.

Yeah I certainly looked at Miles of Krishnan DZ but I decided to go with Gator & JJ today with a series of small win bets ... had So Splendid going in the race but no go today.

You have to pick them at the right time but that's racing ... however,  I'm reasonably confident of breaking even (at least) on the day.

Yes that’s right Macca. We’ve been near enough the mark with our selections. We’ve been doing this for a while now and have at least found some horses to follow, whether we are on them when they win is another matter, but like you said that’s the game.

Regardless of quality running around, the Flemington track comes up a treat every time. Been watching patterns early on and will start my venture soon.

Got my first collect for the day in the 4th at Randwick ... a trifecta!  Only a small collect but it's nice to get on the board DZ.

Haha, Brown will be too strong one on one in my opinion, unless they are using Howe to sit off him a bit and come in as a leaper/spoiler to limit the long Brown reach.

This thread is going well early, a little bit too serious on the footy side of the forum at the moment. Our BBs on soon. Good luck all.

Wow, I just placed my multi via the wife’s ( mine really) TAB account and after using the multiplier option it gave me 3x the odds. Instead of $38.30 my price is now $114.90. Let this be the day fellas!!

    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

    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?

    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.
