    The Villan

    My thoughts after seeing the head on was that there had to be a change to placings. Have a look at the race film of the race on NZTR from 2.20- 2.44 section. The Villain came out four times onto Bonjour in the run home. The bump at the 100m mark (start of the red rail) was a decent one with the rider of Bonjour having to stop riding out his horse and remember the margin was only a nose.
  2. From the article Baz. Ryan said the publication had enjoyed a big increase in subscriber numbers before lockdown and he hoped to quickly return to a circulation of at least 4000. RaceForm will soon launch a website on which it will provide a full list of retail outlets. It will cost $7.50.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/117341290/almost-40-auckland-beached-contaminated-by-human-waste-over-weekend Haven't succeeded there as yet Jack. Talk about kicking a can down the road. Is this the best you can come up with...…..after four days!!!
  4. Good news indeed. Many will welcome it back. I am perplexed re going back to A4 size though also Puha. The book size and style that was being used prior to Covid was excellent.
  5. I find your comments re Trentham a bit strange Huey. There is a large hospitality room in the birdcage where all owners are invited in to have a drink (and food) following the race. Makes for good atmosphere when presenting to winning connections also.

    Jacks' gone quiet.
  8. I have just looked at the fields and horses that ran at Counties have comments. eg 8 Vainglory "Resumed with a good win at Counties. Up in distance. Capable of a repeat. 6 Valante "Needed resuming run at Counties. Step up in distance ideal. Don't dismiss.
  9. It appears that Michael Coleman will be missing from the future jockey ranks following an accident at the Rotorua trials yesterday in what seems a career ending incident. Unfortunately a horse reared and came down on top of him fracturing his femur in three places and causing damage to his pelvis. Tough way to go out Mickey but all the best with your recovery.
  10. Cheers Bob. Confirms my thoughts on why they were ahead of Pearl Davone. .
  11. Well you made the field and drawn barrier 1. Do we get on?
  12. Meeting News Two Extra North Island Meetings – Wanganui and Ellerslie Two extra race-meetings have been scheduled for the ‘Return to Racing’ period. A race-meeting has been scheduled for Wanganui for Thursday 25 June. Strong numbers of horses at jumpouts/trials including 106 participants at the Waverley Point to Point on 11 June suggest there is plenty of interest. Notwithstanding the indication of strong numbers, this meeting will not proceed unless there are sufficient numbers for eight good-sized fields. Highweight races will be scheduled over distances of 1600m and 2060m as well as races over 800m, 1200m and 1360m. These races will be Open Entry races and will be run for a stake of $15,000. In the Northern region the Auckland RC will now race at Ellerslie on Saturday 11 July with the currently scheduled Counties meeting moving back four days to Wednesday 15 July. The additional meeting will also have stakes of $15,000 per race and be Open Entry with the distances of 880m, 1200m, 1400m 1600m and 2200m being applicable at Ellerslie. The highweight races that were scheduled for Counties will now be run at the Ellerslie meeting. Where the highweight races at both meetings are programmed and potentially split, NZTR in conjunction with the club will decide what races to allocate as the highweight. This will be done after nominations close
  13. Could it be that Forgetz (2nd 2 starts ago) and Ciciolina (3rd 2 starts ago and three starts ago) are ahead due to better recent form having been placed in recent starts whereas Pearl Davone's placings came at her first two starts?
