  1. 'Nonsensical' - what a lovely word. I have made it Word Of The Week. Sorry Pam there's no prize, merely my admiration
  2. Still can't place a bet. Have emailed TAB so shall wait and see..
  3. I did all that Shodsie and, just for a moment, thought Bob was my Uncle (well he was, but he's long dead and buried) I was home and hosed and about to give you a big kiss. Oops, no kiss for you my love. My stake changes to the same for win and place, then I have a message 'dear me duckie, you have an error. Best you go wash the dishes, feed the cat then come back and have another go' - or words to that effect. Unibet does the same as you mention. Opens a Win Box and Place box and then, my treasure, Bob is your Uncle. Thank you for trying to help. That was kind of you.
  4. I have a question. I tried to place a bet at Cambridge but fiddled and buggered around for so long I gave up and bet elsewhere. My question is: (remember I've only had one try) Can you not bet a different amount for win and place on the one bet slip now?? Do I need to do the Win bet first then another bet for the Place? We need the Romans. They conquered the world. A new TAB website would have been a five minute job to them. Good luck punting over the weekend everyone.
  5. Neither can I. I was hoping someone else could. Perhaps we could compile a list of "unfiner' moments.
  6. You're doing better than me. I went to the Deposit section and clicked Add A Card. That was the end of that. "Error. Come back later" or words to that effect. Thank goodness for my Aussie TAB, Ladbrokes and Unibet accounts. New website doesn't seem to be one of their finer moments - although perhaps I'm being too harsh.
  7. That is was. 7 sleeps to go!!!
  8. I see Carlton Draught are releasing 30,000 slabs. Jeez C.T. that's barely enough to drown an Aussie thirst I have to say: what great marketing. Not to mention the money they'll make Are you in for the Cox Plate??
  9. Just checking - in case my mind is atrophying (which wouldn't surprise me) - if everyone is going to see WINX at the Valley why would they be expecting to see her at Flemington the next day?? Surely the wouldn't front her for a media performance??? God save me, wouldn't you sell your soul to be there??
  10. Be good if you could tell us the breeding my love. Might make it easier to have an opinion regarding the name. Pleased to read you and the Mrs. had a happy date night.
  11. Neither did I Pete, but I cheered him to the post. Well deserved.
  12. WINX not bad for being ridden like a drunk on a pushbike eh, Gruff. If anyone had to beat her today I would have been pleased for Happy Clapper to do it. He is so honest Never mind. No one can take away from her what she has done. Absolutely awesome.
  13. Weasel, many years ago, some one (I don't recall who, but obviously wise) stated 'champions shouldn't be compared, merely admired'. Makes sense to me.
  14. Bloody good decision. Pleased they considered her and not a visit with the Queen. What a magic day Cox Plate 2018 will be.
  15. Awesome. I see they did some sort of survey in Oz as to what path she should take this campaign. Can't remember all %ages exactly but 56% said go for a 4th Cox Plate. 20-something% said UK for the Queen Anne. 9% said the Breeders and 4% suggested 'other races'. Would the Arc be an option for her? I wish they would retire her. Let her put her feet up and reminisce on an amazing career. My blood pressure would be a lot better.
