    Nice to see a positive result last week. Racing this weekend is at Caulfield and Rosehill whilst Brisbane racing takes a stroll to the north where the Sunshine Coast will play host. Interesting discussion amongst some locals regarding the accuracy of track ratings of late. Seems the jockeys are of the view that there have been several tracks that should have been rated Heavy and not Soft. Of course the cynics argue that Race Clubs dont like Heavy ratings because it turns away some attendees, punters and decreases field sizes. I'll let others be the judge here.!!
    Todays selections follow and of course the results will be progressively updated if time permits.
    CAULFIELD:
    R1 no 3 Lone Eagle Won $3.60
    R6 no 2 Nikitas
    R7 no 6 Here to There 2nd

    ROSEHILL:
    R3 no 2 I'll Fly Away
    R7 no 8 Sir Bacchus
    R9 no 7 Carzoff 4th

    SUNSHINE COAST:
    R6 no 2 Self Sense
    R7 no 5 Too Good To Refuse
    R8 no 1 Acatour

    LAY BETS:
    SCR1 no 2 Badajoz Won $3. Lay bet lost
    SR5 no3 Gallic Chieftain Won $2.20 Fav. Lay bet lost
    MR2 no 2 Kiwia Won $2.70. Lay bet lost

    BETFAIR BSP estimate is 96.5. Actual is 102.5 so bet today is Unders.

    Well last week we went from the penthouse after the previous result to the shithouse. Probably one of the worst days on the racing calendar for results this year however it is winter and these off days seem to pop up around this time. So today we batten down the hatches and sail on regardless. This Wednesday the final game in the NRL's State of Origin matches takes place with Queensland v NSW. My money will be on NSW as I think the Queensland team is soft in comparison and they will miss the likes of Thurston. Today New Zealand faces the British Lions at Eden Park and my money is on the All Blacks to win by more than 11.5 points as they will be still hurting from the last Test loss and will out for revenge.
    Here are todays selections and as usual updates will occur, time permitting.

    FLEMINGTON:
    R4 no 1 Royal Symphony Won
    R8 no 7 Ability....Won $3.50...each way danger is Husson Eagle

    WARWICK FARM:
    R6 no 2 Spending to Win 2nd
    R7 no 6 Zayam

    DOOMBEN:
    R4 no 1 Loving Home
    R8 no 5 Cruising Speed

    LAY BETS:
    MR6 no 5 Hursley Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    BR5 no 4 Sheiswhatsheis Started fav. Won $3.90. Lay bet lost

    BETFAIR BSP estimate is 90.5.


    Cheers and beers

    The week that was saw some surprising results. Three of the top four men are out of Wimbledon and the British Lions almost caused a devaluation of the New Zealand dollar by being in a winning position against the All Blacks with less than five minutes to go. The draw was as controversial as Jeff Horns fight result. The Queensland Maroons rearranged their team and without their star player in Thurston they demolished the Blues 22-6. Sorry Dags. Maybe next year if you can find a good coach!!.
    Today sees the local racing shunted up to the Sunshine Coast as Brisbane continues to suffer from the hopefully temporary closure of Eagle Farm. The Sunny Coast track must be the most utilised track in Australia with about 60 races on there per annum. The Gold Coast and Darwin would be their only competition I think if there was a contest for Australia's most raced on track every year.
    Here are today's selections and lets hope that the winter doldrums have moved on.

    CAULFIELD:
    R4 no 1 Kiwia 4th
    R5 no 5 Show A Star2nd
    R6 no 1 Revolving Door 2nd
    R7 no 7 Supido Won $2

    ROSEHILL:
    R6 no 1 Sir Plush 2nd
    R7 no 1 Gold Symphony
    R8 no 3 Collateral Won $7

    SUNSHINE COAST:

    R4 no 1 Bring It home Pop Won $2
    R5 no 7 Cashing Up
    R6 no 4 Stella Ombra Won $4


    LAY BETS
    :
    MR9 no 8 Schism Started $2.60fav. Won. Lay bet lost.
    SR9 no 2 Reneged. Started 2nd Fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won

    Sunny weather around today where tracks are good and a soft 5 at worse. Very little Group or black type racing around the country today which is typical of our scene during winter.

So until that occurs we will continue to plod through the Benchmark class racing and do our best to find you a winner or three.
    Here are todays selections and with a bit of luck there will be regular updates as go along today.
