    Got a bit busy last week, but I was one short priced winner from two bets. So net very little. This week I’m on the nose of the Kipling girl. A good run last time out and she meets red cayenne 3.5kg better off and should appreciate a better track. Only time At Ruakaka she finished right in behind the placegetters, never really getting clear. Coleman on board and I am also. $50 @ 10s

    16YO horse defies age to win race... https://www.punters.com.au/news/watch%3a-16yo-horse-wins-race_181810/ Age is just a number for some, as 16-year-old gelding See Double You showed overnight. Competing in the Lee Dolan Memorial Handicap Hurdle over 5057m at Roscommon in Ireland, the 'old boy' got the job done at start No.63 - winning by 1L and paying $9. The Ronan McNally-trained jumper took care of horses comfortably his junior, with Pump Road (7YO) and Humps And Bumps (6YO) filling the minor placings. Foaled on May 17, 2003, See Double You was a relatively late starter, making his debut as a five-year-old, before posting an 8L win at Colakilty at his fifth start in May 2008. In an unusual quirk, six of his eight career wins took place after he ticked into double-digits, including winning first-up as a 15-year-old and winning as a 13YO when ridden by his now-trainer/owner, ex-jockey McNally.

    Hungover and a bit to do today. So I’m on short priced runners and no multi. Gruff, track bias seems the same today. Be on the rails. Just seen the Collet favourite get rolled and not making ground down the outside.

    I cut and paste that right off my transaction page O’man. I see the TAB has corrected it now. Good run by Battle Time. Wish I’d backed him the win!!

    Firstly, just because some bureaucrat decided to justify his existence by producing a rule, does not make that law correct or necessary. I wonder, if a horse was approaching that age, and was on a winning streak, obviously enjoying his work - is that the end for him? Would you support that rule blindly? Perhaps a more measured approach would be, once a horse gets to an advanced racing age, to have an 'average beaten lengths' moving average, and when the horse is uncompetitive over a period, the trainer must make a submission to the authority (which may be 'we're training for the Great Northern, get on board!')

    If it's 'obvious to all', then no one is unsuspecting. Anyone backing a horse with a row of duck eggs that's paying $30+ is probably backing it because of their Uncle David, or they have a thing for blue chevrons - ultimately, in calling for his retirement, we are making a call on the trainer's ability and/or love of her horses. As a suggestion, would it work if, once past a certain age, the horse can only be hit a certain number of times (once or twice to get them going)?

    I knew that, and ignored it O'man. Ah well, as they say 'it is better to have bet and lost, than to have never bet at all' - no, hang on, that's not right...

    Ok, play-time over, Dragon Storm was a great run and ride, after missing the jump. Stilton (follow) and Rikki Tikki Tavi couldn't make up enough ground three out on a day you had to be on the rails all day. Killarney couldn't raise a gallop, and Von Trapp won't get any more of mine. Lessons re-learned, Ruakaka... (just don't), and don't bet on short-priced horses to turn their form around. Drop the multi (it's hard enough picking one winner). Less bets. On to next week. ps - for the record, I had a sneaky each-way on Sampson, so it wasn't a complete was-out.

    He might be gearing up for the Great Northern Steeples - Heavy track, over the hill a few times - these races are just a sprint prep for him

    Still just kicking around in smalls, but there’s some very bettable races at Ruakaka today. Matt Cameron in Dragon Storm, drawn to get a lovely trip and in form. Killarney’s the class horse on top of the ground, nice draw, and gets the claim. Stilton looks the class and will enjoy the step up in distance. Rikki Tikki Tavi back to 1200, on top of the ground, blinkers on. Von Trapp is probably my weak link, but he’s back at the scene of his only win, drawn well, and has any amount of ability.
