  1. You can get $5 for her at the moment for the Cox Plate Tom but yes, you would expect her to be odds on in her next 2 races leading into her grand final. I think she’s currently paying $1.80 Fixed Odds All in for the Makybe Diva.
  2. She’s a beauty alright Catalano! Can’t wait to see her out to a mile on a firmer deck at Flemington. Good luck with Neufbosc in the Cup.
  3. I find a lot of the fun is picking a horse you like then finding a bookie on course to bet on it with. BOG I feel would take the fun out of it. I don’t bet to make money. I’ve got a good job for that. I bet purely for the love of the thoroughbred game.
  4. Very good flock. What did the quaddie pay?
  5. Good for you. Which horses did you back in your winning day flock? I was happy to back my judgement and take a $800 guaranteed profit knowing that I was going to be in NZ. If I had’ve been in Melbourne I would’ve been on course at Caulfield and taken the best price a bookie would’ve offered which is what I’ll be doing at Flemington when she races in the Makybe Diva.
  6. I just love her will to win Red Rum. She got pushed wide coming around the home turn meanwhile Cliff’s Edge was cruising out front kicking away for a seemingly easy victory. But once she knuckled down and her killer instinct kicked in she was always going to reel him in. Only special horses have that. Hartnell’s best chance of beating her was yesterday where he was in front of her but he couldn’t match her turn of foot in the straight. She’ll be even better on a firmer surface over a longer distance at Flemington in the Makybe Diva. I’m glad he’s chosen to bypass the Memsie. She only needs 2 more runs to be at peak fitness for the Cox Plate and we know she’ll get the distance having run 2000m already in the All Star Mile!
  7. Absolutely Tom. Mark Zahra who rode Cliff’s Edge yesterday said he’d never been more confident of a horse winning leading as he did yesterday and she mowed him down easily in the end. She’s a special horse for sure.
  8. One bet yesterday for one win flock. $800 profit. I’d say my punting discipline and instincts were pretty good. How did you go on the punt yesterday?
  9. No time this time. I might pop in early October if I get a chance. Judging by the deafening silence I’m guessing MJ won Liz? Just tapped into the Air NZ free Wifi at 32,000 ft just starting our descent into Melbourne. Go Betty go!!

    The Right Track

    Enjoy the game Mark. I’m about to hop on a plane back to Melbourne. Go the All Blacks!!
  11. I’m sitting down at the airport waiting to hop on a plane to Melbourne and I’ve just heard Be Good To Ya Mother lead all the way as did Pippie in the first race. I see she’s blown out to $2.20 Fixed odds. Darmanin will need to be positive from 2 and put her up in the first four from the barrier. Hopefully I arrive in Melbourne with some good news in 4 hours.
  12. Feels warmer here in Auckland than it does in Melbourne!
  13. Not worried in the slightest weasel. Her will to win will have her dominant on all surfaces. That being said I would prefer she doesn’t have a gut buster on a heavy 9 fresh up with her main target still over 2 months away.
  14. Won’t have time on this occasion Sam. Perhaps we can catch up for a beer when I’m back in October.
  15. I was always going to back her regardless flock. $1.80 Fixed All in with the TAB just means I know what I’m going to get whether there are scratchings or not.
