    Isn't it time to give this one a rest? You're like a dog with a bone......

    First blood in the Ballarat.....

    Couldn't believe that Line Up paid 30-1 from that draw. I watched the race but didn't have a bet, didn't even really take note of the odds. I thought he'd been under 10-1. Well under. Oh well. The Cup race was a stunner. Old AG seems to be back to his best this last month after a year in the wilderness. Self Asuusred's run was enormous from that back draw, especially without getting a dead into the race, and Chase Auckland's run was even bigger after being all over the place. I couldn't believe how CA took ground of SA in the run home. All of the Aussie horses got better runs than the Purdon pair and still couldn't beat the Kiwis. The open class trotters put on a beauty too, but they'll be battling for the minors once the Kiwis arrive in town over the next few days.

    I didn't see any of the races on the 6-race card at New Plymouth today, but I see Kozzie started of with a 3rd placing followed by 5 consecutive victories. Not a bad afternoon's work by any standards?

    If they do, they should be replaced post haste. It was so loud I had to turn the volume down......

    I work with triangulation every hour of every day, so you qualifications to impress me at all. Aside from that, I'm actually agreeing with you hahahahaha I've actually watched the race now. The first two home were very green weren't they. Much further and 3rd and 4th would of been 1st and 2nd one suspects. Or it would of been one great stockcar pileup.

    And on a more serious note, obviously the ground lost increases as the distance 'a' reduces, especially if 'b' remains the same. Late interference is more costly as there's no chance to make up the ground, the momentum closer to the line would generally be greater I imagine, and the angle of the interference is likely greater than when running out over the length of the straight. Disclaimer. I did not see, and have not see video of, the race in question.

    You say it "is only a few inches" then state "25 cm to be exact". 25 cm is roughly 10 inches. I'm sure any good lady will tell you that there's quite a noticeable difference between "a few inches", which "a few" would generally translate to around five, and the other bloke that was offering 25 cm. Your "few inches" would run second every time hahahahaha

    To be fair, the NRL Bunker had made some howlers as well.....

    Best performance of Cup Week

    Agreed. In what was supposed to be a four-way match race, he slaughtered the lot of them.

    Il Paradiso

    How much did the bump from behind from Il Paradiso help Vow and Declare cross the line in front? The overhead shot showed him slowly edging closer to Master of Reality, but Il Paradiso seemed to give him that extra little boost to nose him out. I wonder if they'd of reversed the result if Master of Reality crossed the line 1st? I thought Surprise Baby was the run of the race, considering it covered about 3300 metres.....

    Il Paradiso

    Interesting that despite one relegation and two promotions, the commentator actually called them across the line in the final payout order!!!

    Are races getting faster?

    Improved drug detection has balanced out improved feed?
