  1. H2H bet of the day?

    Average day yesterday - 1 from 2. Endowment duly obliged by over-racing but Zacada over-raced even worse in the earlier race. Two today at Gisborne: R2 - Ellison paying $1.48 to finish ahead of Madam Makfi. Wouldn't normally take one this short but the trainer matchup sealed it for me. Madam Makfi has had 19 starts and has only finished within 5 lengths of the winner on 2 or 3 occasions. Needs a heavy track to bring the others back to it, and hasn't got that today. Admittedly Ellison hasn't finished within 5 lengths of the winner either but has a lot less convictions and went a reasonable trial before its last start when it ran down the track on that skating rink at Thames. R5 Bel Regazzo paying $1.85 to finish ahead of Pont Alma. Very nice run two starts back and then a nice finish last start when second up - looks like it won't mind 2000m. Pont Alma hasn't raced for over 4 weeks and might be better for the run today.
  2. Gisborne tomorrow

    Yeah this was in my "might sneak one more" bucket. Might sneak another now that Abrahams is scratched. Sacred Day is too short for me - only second run back and stepping up to 2000m - and Coleman aboard. I like En Suite for a bit of value in that race - yes been racing on the West Coast but is fit, won on this course, nice finish last start, good draw and good jockey. $8 and $2.05 on fixed odds - nice each way for me.
  3. Scott Base at $4.....???

    TAB Futures Win market is a joke. Scott Base and Danzdanzdance both at $4.50; On The Rocks and Vin De Dance at $6.50. You'll get very close to, or better than, those prices on the day of the race and you're not taking the risk that something goes wrong beforehand.
  4. Gisborne tomorrow

    Had you noticed Steve? He'll certainly be short in the jockeys challenge. Speaking of which someone put $10,000 on Chris Johnson (another of my favourites) paying $1.40 in today's jockey challenge at Invercargill. He didn't ride a winner and accumulated 3 points. A fool and his money ...... I reckon the "King" will win on Pink Graffiti and might sneak one more win from all those good rides.
  5. Well done Howie and team AA - too good for us today. Team LDM - a few bum steers from the skipper today. On to next week!
  6. It's in to $9.70 on the tote - how much did you guys put on?
  7. Cheers Howie. TC is putting a few dollars on Frolic as well.
  8. Hi Peter, I think Wrinkles was on Redkirk Warrior as well. Makes it pretty tough for LDM to win. Looks like we need Frolic to win for Steve P.
  9. On The Rocks

    Yes but this is a different Cold Shoulder. This Cold Shoulder was out of Refused The Dance, the dam of Melbourne Cup winner Efficient.
  10. yep looking for better going Rees
  11. H2H bet of the day?

    Two I like today: Ellerslie R6 Zacada paying $1.85 to finish ahead of Charles Road. I'm a big fan of Charles Road and he beat Zacada at their last start but a couple of things make me think Zacada can turn the tables today; 2.5kg weight difference and last time Zacada hadn't had a run for four weeks and just seemed to come to the end of it over the last 100m. Big fan of Zacada's jockey as well. Ellerslie R7 Vin De Dance paying $1.85 to finish ahead of Endowment. Third run back from a spell now and was finishing very nicely last start. Shouldn't mind sting out of the track and Baker/Forsman always seem to produce a number of nice staying 3yos at this time of the season. Mind you, so do the trainers of Endowment. Endowment appeared to over-race early in his last start and with 22 days between runs might do the same again here?
  12. Apologies - hadn't realised this one was balloted out. Scratching replacement. Updated picks are: R7. 6-7
  13. R1 2-3 R2. 3-5 R3. 1-9 BB R4. 3-13 R5. 1-4 R6. 1-2 R7. 6-17 R8. 2-6 R9. 1-4 R10. 3-13 BB Good luck Casper, Howie and team. Thanks Peter.
  14. Ellerslie All Up Comp

    R5 #9 Richie McHorse (place) R7 #4 Mongolianconqueror (win) Thanks
  15. and 11 races. Two lots of picks for R6. I suspect races 4 & 5 are doubled up?
