  1. Gee all those upgrades and maintenance outages have really done the job eh?.....
  2. Could be a bit of torn loyalty, does he not train his father in laws horses solely as well as lots of owners who stayed loyal after Barts passing. Tough gig for whoever takes it on.... Beadman seems to run the show, would Moody have had the "heads-up " to tread water and wait for this opportunity?. A long shot might be Charlie Appleby as the races Godolphin really want to win are the staying ones.
  3. Just went to check if report was up yet ..... and yes it's there. Start reading it and think hmmm this does not seem right, oh check date ummm it's the stipes report from 1st Jan oh well at least it's this year!.
  4. Thanks for that Ohoka , GT owes me nothing I backed him in his first win at Avondale (from memory) and have been on him in all his starts on D-H going since. It will be a bog by race 9 tomorrow (if they proceed) so heres hoping its Purton at his best. Good luck to all....as we will need it!!!!!.
  5. Is Purton here to ride for the owner??... f/o's have come in again from 34 & 9s this morning...indicates some confidence somewhere.
  6. Yes GTT at 10's, Snow at 5.50 , and may have a second look at Marciano at 8.50. .... the question is the Oz raiders Weirs horse has not set the world on fire but they have engaged Colgan that's a plus, Pop n Scotch has staying firm but no real wet form hmmmm.
  7. Backed both of them this arvo Von, after trolling through past soft/heavy performances. GTT was at 10's F/O up till this morning.... now into 7's after track work this morning!!.
  8. And they are arriving on Shergar!!!
  9. Chances are Mr Guy is in town on Sunday for the KM and opening of the sales on Mon... has he been overlooked (and that would be easy given his "no-nuts" demeanour) for an invite to the "OK Coral" meeting??.
  10. Race 3 Timaru 2015 ring any bells boys??.
  11. No need to wait, just posted on Informant site by Ryan.......... A two-week let-up awaits Xtravagant before he resumes training with a likely summer sprint double at the top of his agenda. Last season’s champion three-year-old returned recently from a disappointing two-race Melbourne campaign and underwent a high-tech scintigraphy examination to identify any possible underlying explanations for his form. “He had that last week and we sat down and went through everything yesterday,” co-trainer Stephen Autridge said. “Apart from the odd niggly spot there wasn’t anything to be greatly worried about, so we’ll let him have a couple of weeks off and then start again. “At this stage it’s likely he’ll have a steady build-up and aim him towards the Telegraph at Trentham in January and then have another crack at the NRM Sprint at Te Rapa. “Two Group One sprints on left-handed tracks should be up his alley, then we’ll see what happens after that.”
  12. I am pretty sure it's when the field is decided and runners have their barrier positions, so about 2pm Wednesday for the CC.....don't forget the NZ TAB usually take a day or so to get the FF prices up even for big races!!.
  13. Preferment for me!, liked the way Bowman was very guarded in his comments after the Sydney run 3 weeks ago, in the Turnbull last week he finished nicely along the rail for 4th. Was skittled in the MC last year , l think the CC may actually be his target this year, he is a better horse at Flemington but well proven at 2400. When the TAB put up futures for top4 finish on the CC he was $6.50 a day later $5.50 and after the Turnbull he is now $4.60 for a top4 finish. There is some confidence somewhere.
  14. Thanks for the info Bimbo, fully understand why you turned him off then!!. He is obviously unaware that Godolphin are one of the largest powers in world racing and of course huge in Oz, seems we are being unreasonable to expect that in that broadcasting role you might display some knowledge of your product and who the big players are!.
  15. New Owners to racing take out Weekend Hustler stakes?. Just putting the mower away in the shed and have the radio on out there due to investment in an upcoming race. Result of the Weekend Hussler Stakes is being broadcast....who the hell is the pratt on Radio Trackside at the moment??, he gives the result and then without any change in tone , so I can only assume he has absolutely no idea in regard to a basic level of racing knowledge....... "Owned by the Godolphins" Unless I have this totally wrong then I will apologise, or do we have new owners racing in Oz and utilising silks remarkably close to the Godolphin colours??. I shake my head ... who is this guy and is he new ??
