    Clever planning

    Well Tim, you know what to do - or should that be what not to do!

    The Mile High Club

    Yes hsvman agree with concept but it only goes half way - what about 2 (one each gait) 3200 races as well each or alternative meetings Everything now sprint - until suddenly along comes the Auckland/Rowe cups and many horses cannot handle the extreme distance. And perhaps that also applies to some of the drivers too.
  6. dkc - why not just nominate for the cup and boycott the rest of the programme.

    Too easy to come here to live, get (over) generous assistance, and five star care if you do happen to run foul.

    The Mile High Club

    All races this week over 1609 at Alexandra Park. Programme for 13th September the same! What reason??? Surely they not trying to steal the Jewels off Cambridge by proving such programmes viable at Auckland? Will it be a regular (monthly) feature?
  9. eljay

    Yep - picked that up too ...

    Not according to the stipes report I seen
  10. is the IRB really serious. If the Aussies beat the AB's Saturday then they can claim to be a better team. It's nothing to do with England, Wales, or Timbuktoo! This is what we pay the Press for: (in this instance the NZ Herald) A world rankings shake up could be on the cards in men's international rugby this weekend, and the All Blacks could face the biggest drop. Currently sitting atop the rankings, where they have been since late 2009, a loss to the Wallabies at Eden Park on Saturday night would see an end to their reign at the top. If the All Blacks lose, they'll fall to fourth in the world while a loss by 16 points or more will see them plummet to sixth. Both would be an all time low ranking for the national side, who have only ever fallen as low as third on the world rankings. However, should they lose and Wales beat England on Sunday morning (NZ time), or England win by 16 points or more, the All Blacks would only drop to third. If the Wallabies were able to end their 33-year drought at Eden Park, either Ireland, England or Wales would move to the top of the rankings. In that situation, a win over England by any margin would lift Wales to the top of the rankings for the first time in the union's history, while a 16-point win over Wales would give England their second reign at the top of the heap. Should the two sides draw, Ireland would take the top spot. Should the All Blacks beat the wallabies, Wales and England could still take over at the top. If the All Blacks win and Wales win by any margin, Wales will dethrone the New Zealand side. If the All Blacks win by any margin and England win by 16 points or more, England will dethrone the All Blacks.

    TAB machines

    Another story from last Friday. Client went to manual seller but was told his TAB account was invalid as the old dilapidated machines wouldn't accept it. They tried another machine with same result. After a couple of swear words (p.s. I don't have a TAB account ) he went to the TAB - Alex Park where a TAB is on course - and their machine accepted his account immediately. Simple answer I suppose, don't open a TAB account and don't bet in excess of a dollar each way

    TAB machines

    This story is actually true. Punter a week before new petty cash regulations were introduced collected roughly 2 thou and got a betting voucher. Didn't use it till last Friday when he was told it was over 1 thou and couldn't be used without the mandatory passport, rates notice or whatever. His bet was around 40 to 50 dollars. Apart from the fact the money had been collected before the new Winston regulations and the bet only pensioner size anyway he was refused. TAB, you are going the right way to losing an army of punters - so after a year don't bleat that profits have once again nosedived.
