    weasel57 got a reaction from Memphis2 in M Cup, what do ya reckon   
    I'm no expert but I think VE is a big chance Tuesday. Classy multiple Grp 1 winner,, well weighted, in-form, handles all tracks (rain no problem) and has the 'will to win' written all over her, if you watch the Caulfield Cup replay the last 50m she had every right to cough it up but dug deep. Could she possibly be another Maybe Diva  in the making? Capable of winning over 1600m-2000m at wfa early in a prep and just gets better and better.. The thing I like most aout her is the ability to put in a very fast 200m sectional -that destructive 'turn of foot' that we saw in the CC. If she can 'go to sleep'/ switch off in the first 2400m of the Melbourne Cup ,she could brain 'em! If she pulls her head off, forget about it!

    Have just done a quick tally of weights versus points( ignoring sex and age) compared to AVD at the top ,and sir dragonet comes out way above the rest followed by russian camelot, warning and tiger moth ,and then AVD and VE are level pegging BUT VE is a mare and the russian and tiger NH3yos and would normally get allowances, so will have to be very good indeed on cup day.So sir dragonet ,warning,AVD are top 3 all things being equal, if only it was that simple.

    It must be added that VE is the best at WFA in OZ but has been aimed at the big cups ( the cox plate on that wet track would have been at her mercy) now who would second guess Waller .VE  is the best local by a margin but some of the imports are carrying no weight ,but not that much less ( as NH3yos versus VE at WFA) than they will versus VE in the cup so she is fairly weighted against AVD at the top and others at the bottom but will need to be on top of her game.Last year vow and declare was rated 114 or 115 but carried up to 2kg less than other similarly rated horses so the locals can win with the right weight,  VE can win but a little rain would be a boost to her chances and they will all need a large slice of luck

    Have to say this year's Cox Plate is underwhelming. Would have preferred to see Verry Ellegant tackle this race rather than Caulfield Cup. Her turn of foot and ability to make ground while cornering would have been dynamite at MV.

    how about giving some credit to VE for that incredible turn of foot to get to the front and sheer guts to hold out a big strong challenger

    "An update on Rosie..
    Not conscious yet but making some progress. Doctors took her breathing tube out yesterday afternoon which is good. Her breathing became extremely difficult, was touch and go re having to put it back in. Was hard to watch and I wouldn’t have thought anyone could sustain that sort of effort..  super stoked to get a text from Will first thing to say she’d made it through night unassisted and was much more comfortable💪😍#Legend
    She’s got this, toughest little person I know💓"

    Watched the race and saw the idiot on the track but did anyone else spot the stray golf ball almost hit the horses and riders on the first round. About 2min13sec into the race...could have been a bloody disaster.

    all great tactical rides too , doubtful any one else could have steered those four winners home.
    any young jock aspiring to great heights only needs to look at his winning  ride on the autumn sun in the caulfield guineas 
    JMAC , great jockey, up there with the best ever to come from NZ IMHO.

    Decided to see the odd for the Arc this evening in France. Has a squizz at Stradivarius. Saw they had him as a 4 year old gelding. Then looked at Enable...guess what?...she's also a 4yo gelding. No sire, no dam. no anything!!! Come on TAB. This is only the best championship race in Europe. Why isn't there anyone who cares enough to get this stuff right? It's the most basic of basic. Aren't we trying to promote betting?

    well a labour/green coalition is one ightmarish scenario looming real enough now to push a lot of Centre/Right voters towards a NAT/ACT.
    Mr Seymour is one of just a few politicians talking un-common sense in this campaign. Perhaps he will be the 'handbrake' for Judith and Co.

    Watching the horses in parade ring or prelims on Trackside 1 and scrolling across the bottom of screen are numbers and names of horses from Santa Anita screening on Trackside 2.
    ffS  if we wanted to see those names we would switch to Trackside 2
