    Wasn’t trying VERY hard........same old same old.......just read what I wrote first, and comment on that rather than reconstructing misleadingly what I said

    Not trying?? TAS was niggled all the way, never on the bit and ridden the length of the straight. Hit the same amount of times as the winner. Couldn't have gone an inch better...Although went great Ha Not a very (and I'm an expert ) analysis IMO

    But I have to bring in the UK form because we can frank the ratings. Shame we don't have the system fully set up in NZ but the NZTR are bone slow in making sense of our industry. You've just got to keep the feet on the ground. Endless Drama is a good horse on his best rating but one has to concede that his best days should be behind him. That makes anything behind him slightly exposed when you consider today's race probably ran to mid 90's. TAS needs to be 20-25 pounds better to be competitive in the Cox Plate (average rating 123). Do I see that improvement? Not sure but maybe I simply can't get past the Rip Van Winkle part of the equation.

  10. Did you and LJM watch the race together down at HQ? It would have been a bit of fun sharing the moment Go Mystic Journey.

    IMO ( and I’m an expert ) one of the first two home wasn’t trying very hard today, and rightly so, he’s got a big year ahead of him and it’s be dumb to knock him about for that embarrassing stake on that awful track ...

    I was talking about ED BTW So TAS has a length on ED so will be very competitive in Aus whatever he lines up in ED had a length on HB so HB was impressive HB has 1.5 lengths on MB This all points to todays race stronger than most of the G1s last season.
  15. Another good finish to the comp and what a wonderful day's racing, awesome to see some of our favourite horses coming back to the track leading into Spring. Thanks everyone for your company today and congratulations again to our winners: Plovdiv and Trump I will of course do a check up and restore some health to any scores that I have harmed Have a lovely rest of the weekend and a safe, happy and warm week ahead

    You are a practiced cherry picker. You can apply the very same logic you are using to the NZ economy.NZ is a bit player and external factors over ride ANY NZ political player.
  17. LAST COMP RACE Comp R12 : Morphettville R7 DAVID R COLES AM SPRING STAKES G3 WFA $130000 1200m Starts 6:51pm First: 10 Dalasan Quin: 10 Dalasan / 1 Scales of Justice Sub: 1 Scrs: 5 The 3YO chestnut colt by Dalakhani out of Khandallah, a Kitten's Joy mare powered past Scales of Justice in the hands of Raquel Clark to pick up a nice win in the Group 3 WFA. With only 51.5 on it's back, the strong looking colt made the most of it with the rest of the field giving him 5 plus kgs. Scales of Justice, the 7YO gelding by Not a Single Doubt looked home but just couldn't pick up the pace to fight off the finishing burst of Dalasan. 3 Waging War, the son of Rebel Raider finished third and 2 Despatch, the 5YO son of Written Tycoon, made up the first 4. A BB Quin for Pegasus 9 and Quins for Plovdiv, richie, Memphis2 and Jenlove with last race wins for Koriokaramea (BB), arjay and Archer. Congratulations to Plovdiv and Trump who took the reins early on and fought off challenges from talk and Black Kirrama and Sayer and Rusty to take out the comp with a very good total of 125. Also well done to Swoopa and Ivanthegreat who set a stiff early pace to set us up for a good finish. Excellent individual totals of 75 for Pegasus 9 and 70 for Plovdiv, ivanthegreat and paigezim.

    He's a former businessman with plenty of investors hanging around . You on the other hand is just a pawn in the big game . Now always go back and ask the question , what is cindy doing to protect NZ from global warming , never mind the rest of the world, we have no influence there . How many dams are we building and where is the plan to provide electricity when the rivers are dry , clearly there are none so she has very little concern for our future , meaning nothing to worry about , it's all politics . If that's not enough for you then another question , one of the worlds biggest coal burners is India , it's a stinking hot country but they aren't concerned about global warming and in fact have openly stated , we didn't cause it so we reserve the right to keep developing our country and intend to open their own coal mines and burn much more coal . Do you seriously think they would do this if they thought the threat was real .

    Great to hear your view on the winner today before the race. And part of me agrees with your analysis of the NZ form and horses TAS has beaten. BUT ... I was there Couplands Mile day and irrespective of the field that was something special. AND based on your rating of the winner today you have to look at what TAS did and think he was pretty good in getting close from where he was fresh up ??

    Stop it Fruit.....TAS is a very serious horse, and your myopic view of UK form is affecting your judgement .....ED had all the advantages today being fit after a Queensland campaign ....he won’t ever beat TAS on a decent track, and in fact I’ll go further and say TAS will be competitive at the very top level in Ozz...and the Cox Plate would be ideal for him ....
