    They weren't interested in winning, it was a means to an end. Hastings in two weeks.

    Helena Baby

    Not a bad run from her yesterday. I didn't expect her to be fully wound up as they have been pretty clear about going for the Triple Crown at Hastings. Being a year older that run will bring her on and longer will suit better, particularly with TAS out of the way.

    Unlikely RR. He won the Couplands by six on his ear and is bred to go further.

    Cobblers. It was a huge run under the circumstances and if he had been a pair closer in the run he would have won the race. Further distance and firmer track is what he needs.

    Godolphin on fire.....!!

    Great to see the good horses back on both sides of the Tasman yesterday. The Godolphin team is absolutely flying at the moment, and it's still early days. Have a look at the videos of their three winners yesterday - turn of foot from all of them was pretty special... Pandemic at Randwick, Bivouac and Exhilarates at Caulfield.

    Hell no, didn't happen.....and Labour would have handled it just as well........ And that massive surplus National handed over to these Clowns was all smoke and mirrors.....

    At least the Country economy excelled...and he was respected everywhere he went. The Aussies wanted him over there FFS....

    The big difference Crusty was that Key knew what he was doing.......Ardern has a Masters in Hugging......that's it......

    Hell of a run today, a pair closer and he wins. Very few made ground from that far back today......

    Nicely rated Berri. Must admit you can never count out a Pike/ Innes runner ( Five Stars great price ) just thought 1200 too short. The rematch at Hastings will be a beauty, just a shame the Shark is going to Australia.

    Rankings - Is this a bloody joke or

    How the TAB have the All Blacks at $1.18 v the Aussies at $4.85 is a bit of a mystery. The Eden Park factor must be in play, because on the basis of last week those odds are ridiculous.

    Interesting listening to trainers. Jamie pretty happy with his two, and John Bell equally with a freshened up Helena Baby. Looks Te Akau Sharks race, blinkers back on Melody Belle will sharpen her up, although given they are heading to Hastings to have a go at the Triple Crown there, would she want a gutbuster today ? Will depend how that track plays and whether that new ground inside is an advantage. Expect Malambo to lead. And if that rain keeps up......

  16. A word of warning in here..... Lawrence Stakes Day, to be held at Caulfield on Saturday, is often the meeting that signals to racing fans that spring is about to dawn. It does not technically fall within the confines of the Spring Carnival, but it always heralds the return of a number of expected spring stars. This year it packs extra punch with Cox Plate favourite Mystic Journey headlining the field for the main event, the $200,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes. The Tasmanian star is the odds-on favourite for the 1400-metre weight-for-age event, despite a word of warning from her trainer Adam Trinder that the Soft track is not ideal and a top-three finish would be satisfactory in his eyes given the campaign ahead. Historically speaking, that might be the best thing for her hopes of scaling the heights many have predicted for her coming into this campaign. Lawrence Stakes victory has not been the launching pad to spring glory that those connected with the recent winners would have understandably dreamed of. Of the past 12 winners, only Mourinho - who went on to win the Group 1 Underwood Stakes - has won another race later in the campaign. Recent Lawrence Stakes winners and their subsequent spring record: 2007 - Apache Cat: 1 start; 2nd Makybe Diva Stakes; 2008 - Light Fantastic: Two starts; 4th Makybe Diva Stakes and 2nd-last in Underwood Stakes; 2009 - Predatory Pricer: 4 starts; best results 2nd Turnbull Stakes and 3rd Underwood Stakes; 2010 - Shoot Out: 6 starts; best results 3rd Memsie Stakes, Feehan Stakes, Turnbull Stakes and 4th Cox Plate; 2011 - Whobegotyou: 1 starts; 3rd Feehan Stakes; 2012 - Second Effort: 3 starts; best result 3rd Memsie Stakes; 2013 - Puissance de Lune: 4 starts; best results 2nd Makybe Diva Stakes and Turnbull Stakes; 2014 - Star Rolling: 4 starts; no placings; 2015 - Mourinho: 3 starts; best result Underwood Stakes win; 2016 - Miss Rose De Lago: 3 starts; best result 3rd Memsie Stakes; 2017 - Hartnell: 4 starts; best results 2nd Makybe Diva Stakes and Underwood Stakes; and 2018 - Showtime: 2 starts; both unplaced. Mourinho is also the most recent Lawrence Stakes winner to contest the Cox Plate, but he could manage only 12th placing at The Valley in the first of Winx's four-straight wins in the race. Pompeii Ruler, in 2006, is the most recent Lawrence winner to run a place in the Cox Plate, while you have to go back to So Called in 1978 for the last of the three to complete the double. Better Loosen Up (fourth in the 1990 Lawrence) and Maldivian (third in 2008) are the only Cox Plate winners to have come through the Lawrence since So Called. The race that was known as the Liston Stakes from its inception in 1949 until 2010 has been an even worse guide to the other majors with Sydeston the only horse to win it and the Caulfield Cup in the same season, while no horse has completed the Lawrence Stakes/Melbourne Cup double. Five Melbourne Cup winners have come through the Lawrence, Subzero the latest in 1992, while Jameka became the first horse since Elvstroem (2004) to take it in en route to Caulfield Cup success. Jameka finished fourth in the 2016 Lawrence, which was during her four-year-old season, and this year marks 20 years since the most recent mare of that age group (Inaflury) to win the Lawrence. Miss Rose De Lago, a six-year-old when she won, is the only mare to win since Inaflury, while entire Showtime snapped a seven-year run of outs for four-year-olds with his win last year. Mystic Journey went up the $1.85 favourite with BetEasy following Wednesday's release of the final field and should she start 'in the red', she will be striving to become the first odds-on winner since Mahogany at 8/13 ($1.62) in 1994. Regal Roller (10th at $1.95 in 2005) and Weekend Hussler (second at $1.70 in 2008) are those to have started odds-on since. Only four favourites have won since Mahogany - Apache Cat ($2.10), Shoot Out ($3), Puissance de Lune ($3.50) and Hartnell ($2.80) - but punters haven't been too far off the mark of late with Star Rolling ($10) the longest-priced winner since 2007.

    Tell it like it is Jonesy...... Controversial Australian broadcaster Alan Jones has again lashed out at Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, saying she should "shut up" - and stop running around the world hugging people. Jones also criticised her and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison for being in Tuvalu when there were pressing domestic issues. "It's easy to run around the world, smile at people and look good and hug people and all the rest of it," Jones told Newstalk ZB this morning. "At home, people vote for a particular reason. They want things to be done. And in your country and our country, they're not being done." This morning Jones defended his comments. "Here she is preaching to us on climate change... Someone's got to tell this woman to keep quiet, put a sock in it. "It's a metaphorical way of saying shut up. I wish she would shut up. I don't know how New Zealanders handle this."

    Couch TV Presenters, here’s your chance

    Pretty extensive skill set there....only Matt Cross would make the short list.... How many race commentators with studio experience are there floating about ???
  20. 9 year old now though, will be interesting to see how he goes against some young guns. Know anything about Mustajeer RR ? Aussies have just bought him for Caulfield/Melb Cup. Runs in the Ebor.

  24. He's a son of Encosta de Lago Trumpy, hardly a hack....
  25. Yes Fifty Stars is a pretty good horse and could run a race fresh up. Kenedna still has residual from Qld and Cliff's Edge good second up. Does look a good race for her though, if she can't win this not sure where they go. The Sire was a decent racehorse Trumpy, Won a Carbine Club Stakes when Gai Waterhouse trained it. And they don't come much better bred than Needs Further, the half-brother to the dual Group One winner Hallowed Crown being a son of the Group Three winning Golden Slipper runner-up Crowned Glory whose dam is a half-sister to super star stallion Zabeel.
