  9. I would describe the problem as "it's easier to win the Derby if you have bought out of Karaka". Which is true, and clearly against the spirit of open competition. The cleanest solution might be to extend exempted races (and places in those races). If you have a Derby contender, its only reasonable that they should run well in at least one of the leadup races, and if they do then they are in. In the case of Platinum Invador, they set it for only one leadup race and it would have stood to miss out even if they had exempted down to 8th spot. There's no cure for that, you have to put a performance down on the racetrack at some point if you want to make a field of the top 18 3yos. $10k is about the minimum stake for both maidens and r65s, that is all he had won or placed in. You can't enter a race on potential.

    te aroha bias

    Haven't walked Te Aroha but as far as I can tell from the replays there is not much camber and the turn is tight enough. Horses corner like american cars. The track also seems to fall away a little around the corner which would exacerbate the effect - imagine trying to drive said chevy around a corner at speed when that happens.

    New FOB and Shutdown

    It appears a maximum of one sports futures bet per sport can be added to a sports multi. For example a multi on Scotland winning the 6 Nations and England winning the RWC cannot be placed. The affected options have to be under a 'futures' tab, not just something in the future. Since racing futures are common its noticeable there. My guess is that their related outcomes engine has an issue/incorrect setting/is deliberately hypercautious. Dear TAB, you can place my bug bounty $$ on a multi of Gorbachev into Melody Belle cheers.

    New FOB and Shutdown

    During that time, and for some time afterwards, customers will be unable to log into their accounts, top up their accounts, place a bet, or result a bet - essentially - all betting services will be unavailable while we carry out this work. Some services (yet to be defined) will never work as well again as they will have to be discontinued after we find we cant push shit back through a fan. We reserve the right to irretrievably lose any futures bets for events after Jan 06, all of your historic betting data, good luck lol with any multibets rolling over beyond Jan 06 and dont even ask about your myTab watchlist and notifications.

    Prince Jabeel Wellington Cup favourite...?!!

    2 miles is a hell of a stretch for him imo. And oops just got rerated to near top weight as well. Time to go back and look at those 70 to 75 raters who didnt look a hope of making the field. Gorbachev .. Sulcifera ..

    Melbourne Cup Punting Sucesses

    Hijacking thread with a nearly tale Got the First Four last year off more or less boxing up 7. This year I had 9 picks and 8 of the 9 ran top 9 .. and the 9th pick was Magic Circle who had heart troubles. I missed Rostropovich (5th). Despite that still managed to miss the First Four. Left Cross Counter in for places only as I had some early tickets on him anyway and didn't much like the rain for him. Kew Gardens would have run this awfully close if he had come over.

    Ban fireworks, oh my lord, stop bleating. Anyone would think the ownership of notoriously fractious animals was not actually a choice people made!!
