  1. Watching the race I thought you could be mistaken for thinking Chris Johnson was riding the horse. Good stuff anyway.
  2. Congratulations to Tui Miles getting that first win on Seconds Out yesterday. Don't know much about Tui. Made it look easy. Must have been a thrill.
  3. Why do the TAB still have the NZ Jockey Premiership 2016/17 option up with other jockeys available to bet on even though they can't win now? Well I guess they can, but Danielle Johnson should be about $201 not $21. Rather than trying to con some poor unfortunate for a few dollars on this option, why don't they put up a market for who runs second?
  4. That would be a place you go to make other people money,
  5. $8.10 to be accurate. Nice work.
  6. It's not only formline comments that aren't accurate. I have found SP's on Australian horses are often way off the mark for horses I have been following.
  7. I like the way he used to put his head down and look between his legs to see where the others were in the final stages of a race, but I haven't seen him do it for a long time.
  8. That's what the Victorian's put their success down to. https://rv.racing.com/news/2017-06-16/record-punter-interest-in-victorian-thoroughbred-racing We're planning to achieve our record wagering by churning out more rubbish racing, but providing five zillion different novelty bet options on it every day. I wouldn't have believed this could work until I think I heard that somebody put $700 on the Logan's winning five races on Saturday. With people around making bets like that John's strategy might just work. I don't know why they didn't offer seven wins as an option. The same punter might have wanted to take that one as a saver.
  9. Looking forward to your list of false favourites for this weekend. Before the race this week would be useful.
  10. Well in Australia they have the TAB and they have corporate bookmakers and they race for megabucks. We only have the TAB and we race for peanuts. Maybe it's time for a change and instead of focusing on defending the monopoly we should look at how we can emulate what works there.
  11. Would be much better off just depositing that money into the invitees betting accounts. They would soon get most of it back.
  12. Not really. Doesn't answer the question. Will ask again. What horse should have been favourite? Why should that horse have been the favourite? I had question marks around Melody Belle as per your list and the barrier as well, but still the best performed in the field and deserved to be a clear favourite. Didn't exactly get a sweet trip in the race, but wouldn't have won anyway. They didn't pay much for her and she's won plenty already so god luck to them and I hope she wins a few more.
  13. Strange statement. What horse should have been the favourite and why? Doubt you can come up with much, but would be interested.
  14. Nothing wrong with the replacements. I don't think it will make much difference to their chances. Browne on Shocking Luck might give it a slightly better chance (makes it the omen bet).
  15. I was going to say that you might do that if the money to pay the bill was coming out of your own pocket, but when it's not you can just spend up large. Then I thought I better check out Gemba's website first. Looks like money well spent. I am expecting a massive turnaround in betting turnover in the next few months now that these guys from Gemba are on board providing NZRB management with a deeper understanding and insights into what is going on with their customers. Great stuff. I will sleep easy tonight.
