    ~the Cox plate..intriguing..

    re tactics: maybe OP has got a licence to thrill by starting his run on TAS from the 800-700m mark ...a la Bonecrusher ...he will need to get going early to have any chance of coming over the top of this lot

    One for Gubellini

    I love all this historical stuff...you guys have got all the info! So, as a complete curiosity...what can you tell me about a horse I remember from the late 1970s-early 1980s called STAR DELTA ...all i can recall is that Jim Gibbs trained it at Matamata, and it raced here and in Oz

    This is New Zealand's opportunity

    good article ...though Houseman should be Homesman ...

    if it rains and rains at The Valley Fri/Sat a wide draw may be no disadvantage at all... would you still be a conspiracy theorist then?

    VE is her own worst enemy, still 'hanging around', she will have to drop the bit quickly. Cant see her beating these international quality types esp the Jap runner and Avilius

    no, but getting a long way back (because of the draw) and getting the breaks at the right time through a max size field IS. I believe TAS will give a good account of himself but will have to be Phar Lap to win. For the sake of NZ I hope he is ...but that Japanese horse has all the favours here.

    Castelvechio couldn't win the CP unless it's next year already (just my opinion). From what I've seen so far he doesn't have the tactical speed to negotiate The Valley's tight corners. Race will be all over by the time he winds up. Nice stayer in the making though, poss ATC Derby winner.

    Caulfield Cup Field?

    I cannot understand why the Kosciusko concept has not been picked up yet in New Zealand. Our leading TR administrators should be all over this, but ...no

    Mustelid Musing #167 Will Justin Lester now seek election to central government as a candidate for (anyone but) Labour?

    Jacinda Ardern

    "some of the things I've seen haven't necessaril´╗┐y been accurate .." Allow me to translate this 'spin' to straight talk: " some of these things were wrong" Jacinda is getting a whole lot of bull-kaka advice from spin doctors. she's be better off making a simple apology (ans win/keep supporters becos of its honesty), but that kind of approach is never recommended by said doctors of spin. Labour is in dire straits one year out, but a week is a long time in politics. If National had a viable leader/PM-in-waiting, it'd bbe goodbye NZF and ACT ....
