    Morning all. My first time here. I've been learning to trade for the past six months using GT, small stakes and still surviving! Good to find some Aussie's around. Yep, NZ is a fine place alright Charles49. I lived in Auckland for 7 years when I was a younger man.
    Looking forward to the racing here today.

    Talk again soon..

    Cheers

    Well its that time of the week again as we search once more for those elusive winners. Nice to see the return to Eagle Farm continues today even though its a pretty average meeting. Track from all reports is settling in well although I have noticed that few winners are coming from well back which was a feature with the old track. No major races today except perhaps for the Inglis Dash at Flemington where a small field will contest for some $250k in prizemoney. I don't like the favourite in this race Thorondor so I will be looking for value outside the top fancy.
    Here are today's selections and time permitting I'll update throughout the meetings.
    Just a reminder that this forum here is an open one and if anyone wants to post their thoughts or selections on racing in Australia you are most welcome to do so. Hope your day is a profitable one.

    EAGLE FARM:
    R2 no 1 Boom Chicka Boom....2nd....beaten a nose!!...each way chance currently 14/1 plus I love the name!!

    Racing is a funny old game. Last week I had a couple of nice bets going on Scarlet Hussie (20/1) and Boom Chicka Boom (14/1). They were both beaten into second place in close photos. I do bet each way so the results were okay however if either one or both had saluted the punting bank would look much better. I like to have some First Four bets on a regular basis and rather then just try and pick four horses to run in the first four placings I take a roving banker (sometimes I take two) as that allows me to have a flexi bet and providing the Rover(s) run in the first four placings it can be a rewarding way to bet if your rover gets up and your other selections fill the remaining slots. I took Scarlett Hussie as my Rover and whilst I didnt have a big slice of the pie it did result in a nice little collect with the divvy exceeding 6K on the NSW Tab. So whilst the novelty bets are sometimes hard to pick it can be worth your while to throw a spare dollar or two on them as they are a nice kick along when the gods of odds are kind to you.
    Today Brisbane racing has been assigned to the Sunshine Coast where they will race in hot summer conditions. Randwick and Caulfield will also have hot conditions as summer hits hard across the nation as it does every year in the month of January. So be aware that hot conditions can affect horses and some race results may be influenced by the heat.
    Will try and update today however these may be delayed as I have a busy workload ahead.
    Hope your day is a profitable one.
    Here are today's selections:


    CAULFIELD.
    R4 no 1 Microphone 2nd
    R7 no 4 Al Galayel 2nd
    R8 no 5 Silentz Won $2

    Along the eastern seaboard of Australia extreme weather seems to be the pattern at the moment. Very hot in parts until you head north of Brisbane and there its raining cats and dogs. We are not particularly good here in capturing our rainfall so despite the enormous amount of precipitation that is and has fallen in the north the vast majority of the wet stuff will simply flow out into the Pacific ocean and drought will follow in time as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow.
    Extreme weather does affect our horse racing so that probably accounts for some of the unusual results of late.
    There is an interesting race at Rosehill today called the Expressway Stakes where a small field will contest this Group 2 event for some $200k in prizemoney. The odds on favourite is Alizee however my hard earned will be on Trapeze Artist who won this race last year and I expect this four year old to be well primed to run a big race here.
    Main news here is that Victoria's top trainer Darren Weir is being accused by racing officials of working operating outside the rules of racing and as a consequence his runners have been withdrawn from Caulfield today.
    Here are today's selections and time permitting updates will occur throughout the day.
    Good luck with your investments.

    ROSEHILL:
    R4 no 3 Vegadaze Won $5.60
    R6 no 2 Trapeze Artist 4th
    R7 no 6 Sweet Deal
    R8 no 4 Island Missile

    CAULFIELD:
    R3 no 2 Naantali Won $2.60
    R5 no 1 Bella Rosa 2nd
    R6 no 7 Antah Won $3
    R8 no 4 Ranier

    EAGLE FARM:
    R2 no 3 Garibaldi Won $3.40
    R3 no 6 Boom Chicka Boom
    R5 no 20 Zareen.....rough place chance at 33/1 or better
    R8 no 3 Brains 4th
    R9 no 9 Mishani Electra.4th..each way at $10.

    LAY BETS:
    SR6 no 3 Le Romain Ran 2nd. Lay bet Won
    BR5 no 3 Acqume Ran 2nd. Lay bet Won

    Big story in Australia at the moment is the four year ban handed out to one of the very top trainers in Australia in Darren Weir. The ban is a global one and extends even to visiting a race course to attend a meeting. He has about 600 horses in training and they are being relocated to other trainers. Stewards even found jiggers in his bedroom which they argue were hidden there. Maybe he had an alternative use for the jiggers??? And along those lines there is a report that I noticed suggesting that topless waitresses would be employed at Eagle Farm racecourse in the hope that their presence would attract more patrons. We live in interesting times !!!
    Tomorrow I have a busy day commencing at dawn so I'm getting this report out early. Its of course not final but it will save me some time when I return to the keyboard.
    As usual updates will occur throughout the day.
    Here are the picks for Saturday's racing.

    R1 no 2 Bigroyboy 2nd

    R4 no 1 Voodoo Lad 4th
    R7 no 4 Social Spin

    Another big day of racing on Saturday with the highlight being the return of Winx who was recently voted equal top horse in the World. Winx will contest the Group 2 Apollo Stakes where she will start a very short priced favourite. If she wins this then that will be thirty wins straight for the bonny mare. The race will at this stage have a field of eight and interestingly six of the runners are from the stable of leading trainer Chris Waller who also trains Winx.
    Have another busy Saturday morning coming up so again I'm getting in early with this post and leave the updates and changes until I return to the keyboard around two hours before the first race.
    Hope your day is a good one.


    RANDWICK:
    R3 no 5 Gayatri 2nd
    R5 no 9 Brutal 3rd
    R6 no 5 Winx....Won.....no value so try no 3 Brimham Rocks each way at $150/1
    R7 no 8 Sylvia's Mother

    DOOMBEN:
    R3 no 2 Emphasis Won $3.80
    R4 no 9 Arazona
    R6 no 1 Macewin 3rd
    R9 no 5 Spurcraft Won $4

    FLEMINGTON:
    R2 no 3 Schabau Won $3
    R3 no 5 Enigman
    R6 no 10 Antah 2nd
    R9 no 1 Widgee Turf 3rd

    ASCOT:
    R1 no 1 Amarillo Rose 2nd

    The spotlight moves across to Caulfield this Saturday with the running of the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Oakleigh Plate as well as the Futurity Stakes. Two year olds contest the Blue Diamond for $1.5m in prizemoney. The favourite here is Loving Gaby and I simply cant see it winning this race.
    I believe there is better value beyond the favourite in Lyre, Hawker Hurricane and/or Brooklyn Hustle. Its a tough race that history shows has been won by a two year old with blistering pace that sits up in the top two front runners.
    Main race at Rosehill is the time honoured Hobartville Stakes where they run around for some $400k in prizemoney. The favourite here is The Autumn Sun who seems to have this set weights race at his mercy.
    Here are the selections for today which will be updated after scratchings come through.

    CAULFIELD:
    R1 no 2 Sikandarabad Won $3.80
    R3 no 1 I Am A Star
    R4 no 2 Angelic Ruler 2nd
    R5 no 7 Terbium is the value here...each way @ 12/1 or better Won $11.40
    R6 no 11 Alizee.. Won $2.80..thought Ringerdingding had a rough hope at $17 or better.
    R7 no 7 Lyre... Won $8.80...hard race with plenty of chances
    R8 no 5 Bons Away. 4th...each way at $16 or better.
    R9 no 8 Avilius..Won $2..Looks a good thing in the get out stakes!!

    ROSEHILL:
    R1 no 2 Burning Crown 4th
    R2 no 7 Faretti .......Think the odds on fav Tassort 2nd is a risk here
    R4 no 7 Seaway Won $2.50
    R5 no 1 The Autumn Sun Won
    R6 no 4 So Taken.........no 5 Golden Tycoon 4th is the danger
    R7 no 7 I Am Serious.. 2nd..will be hard to beat


    EAGLE FARM:
    R1 no 2 Raay Of Dreams 2nd
    R3 no 1 Dreams A Plenty.........Brains 4th is the danger
    R5 no 11 Dominant Crown.....interstate visitor..each way bet at $11 or better

    ASCOT:
    R2 no 5 Niccovi Won
    R4 no 4 American Joy 3rd
    R5 no 4 Fabergino Won
    R6 no 1 Star Exhibit Won $2.35
    R7 no 2 Dam Ready
    R8 no 2 Midnight Sky 2nd

    LAY BETS:
    MR7 No 10 Loving Gaby Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    SR2 no 3 Tassort Started $1.85 Fav. Ran 2nd. Lay bet Won.

    Terbium kicked the tin for us last week by rolling the odds on favourite. Nice to see a positive result and lets hope we can keep up the momentum for a similar result on Saturday. Early morning committments on Saturday mean an earlier than normal post which will be updated before racing kicks off tomorrow.
    The Australian Guineas for three year olds is the feature race with $1m in prizemoney up for grabs and it will be run at Flemington. In Sydney at Randwick the feature races are the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes worth $600k and the Surround Stakes where the prizemoney is $500k.
    Here are the early selections.
    There will be no updates today as I have other commitments.
    Hope you enjoy the day.

    RANDWICK:
    R3 no 3 Microphone....Won $2.70..thought the toppie Castelvecchio 3rd was a definite danger
    R6 no 5 Winx Won
    R7 no 4 Fiesta

    R9 no 2 Serene Miss

    R5 no 9 Brilliant Choice 3rd

    Morning all wherever you are on the globe today and welcome to one of Australia's feature races known as the Newmarket Handicap which is run at Flemington over a straight course of six furlongs or 1200m as its known these days. The race is unique because it can have some 23 starters so quite a sight to see so many horses spread across the track and thundering towards the winning post. If you have read this site in the past you would have picked up that I have a few favourite horses that I regularly trot out as a selection. In the Newmarket there are two in Santa Ana Lane and Osborne Bulls both of which have excellent chances. Osbourne Bulls is the favourite here but I cant get past the sensational finishing burst that Santa Ana Lane possesses. So Santa gets my first preference and it helps that he is a $11 chance as I write this and that he has won previously down the straight six. Its a tough race with a Melbourne Cup size field so if you get a chance to watch this one then do so as its quite a sight.
    Interestingly I note that Western Australia's top jock in William Pike has a ride in the Newmarket on Graff which is a chance in this tough race. He also has other rides mainly on outsiders so if you like a good jock on a roughie then you could do a lot worse then following his rides today at Flemington.
    Here are today's selections and time permitting updates will occur as the meetings progress.


    FLEMINGTON:
    R1 no 7 Mystyko
    R2 no7 Greyworm 2nd
    R4 no 2 Sunset Watch 2nd
    R6 no 2 Santa Ana Lane.....with a saver each way on No 4 Osborne Bulls 2nd
    R7 no 9 Kenyan Wonder
    R8 no 7 Avilus
    R9 no 10 Naatali 2nd is the get out chance.

    RANDWICK:
    R5 no 1 Redzel 2nd
    R6 no 2 Pierata
    R7 no 1 The Autumn Sun. Won...looks a special here

    EAGLE FARM:
    R1 no 2 Sizzling Babe Won $2.50
    R3 no 4 Perfect Witness 2nd
    R4 no 12 Shalwa
    R6 no 2 Tatcee 4th
    R8 no 4 Capital Connection Won $2.40

    LAY BETS:
    MR6 no 21 Zousain Ran unplaced. Lay bet Won
    MR7 No1 Angelic Ruler Started Fav. Ran 3rd. Lay bet Won

    Well its another mixed bag weekend for me as my better half has organised some work for me on Saturday morning so unless it rains (and yes it looks a 50/50 chance that my prayers may be rewarded) then its hands off the keyboard and off to work we go. So that explains why the early mail is now being posted with the understanding that it will change tomorrow as the scratchings come through along with the late mail.
    Racing around the country on Saturday is above average with the highlight being the inaugural running of the All Star Mile race for a very cool prizemoney of $5m. The field has been chosen by public vote so its an interesting concept which seeks to claw back Victoria to the top of the racing ladder in Australia after New South Wales nicked it with concepts like the Everest.
    Racing in Brisbane moves on down to the glitter of the Gold Coast where the top race will be the Aquis Jewel for two year olds where they will be competing for $500K in prizemoney. Hardly compares to to the All Star Mile race however its a biggie for the Gold Coast at this time of the year.
    Sydney racing is off to Rosehill where the main event is the Coolmore Classic, a Group 1 race for $600k in prizemoney.
    Big fields dominant racing here so winners could be hard to find however will do my best to flush out a few for you.

    Here are Saturday's early mail selections.

    GOLD COAST:
    R7 no 10 Sugar Boom
    R8 no 3 Defence Missile Race Abandoned
    R9 no 5 Mr Marbellouz....danger is no 10 Malvern Estate (11/1) who loves the wet Race Abandoned

    Its that time of the year where I head off to the wilderness for some adventure and something completely different to the normal cut and thrust of everyday life.
    I'll be back in about a month so providing I dont get lost in the jungle, normal contributions here will resume around then.
    In the meantime take care and I hope you manage to pick plenty of winners.

    Looks like a nice program in most areas so lets hope that relates to a few winners and a profitable day.
    Eagle Farm in Brisbane will be pleased that they have snared the well performed Redzel for Race 9 which is a coup for the Club.
    Caulfield in Melbourne has the Ladbrokes Showdown for 2 year olds and thats worth close to $1m in prizemoney. Race has attracted a capacity field and its a dead set lottery here.
    I have some early commitments tomorrow so this preamble is being done on Friday evening so I dont have to rush too much with the selections tomorrow.
    Here are the selections and best wishes for a profitable day.


    CAULFIELD:
    R1 no 8 Miss Street

    R3 no 2 Truly Discreet

    Well another Saturday is almost upon us and again I have early morning commitments so I have pre prepared tomorrows program and will finish off tomorrow morning (Australian time) with the selections following scratchings. Lay bets are doing well however the other results were below par last weekend so here's hoping for an improvement in that area.
    In Brisbane racing has been shunted down the track to the Gold Coast where a nine race program awaits. Big fields are the order of the day so winners may be hard to find. The Hollingdale Stakes Group 2 race for $500K in prizemoney is the feature event. Kenedna is the favourite and he is one of those horses that I just cant get right. Put him into the first pick slot and he runs unplaced. Dont pick him and he wins. Bloody annoying actually but thats racing.
    Here are the selections and best wishes for a successful day.

    GOLD COAST:
    BR1 no 4 Tunero
    Br2 no 1 The Lord Mayor Won $4.10
    BR3 no 1.Accession 2nd
    BR4 no 8 Word for Word 2nd
    BR5 no 3 Spurcraft..2nd..gave each way chance to Boom Chicka Boom 3rd at $13 or better
    BR6 no 12 Freddie Fox Trot
    BR7 no 4 Zoustyle Late Scr
    BR8 no 9 Kenedna
    BR9 no 7 Outback Barbie Late Scr


    RANDWICK:
    R2 no 1 Heart Conquered 3rd
    R3 no 2 We Concur Won $4
    R5 no 9 Kapajack 2nd
    R7 no 6 Piracy 2nd
    R8 no 12 Spring Charlie
    R9 no 2 Bobbing

    FLEMINGTON:
    R2 no 2 Sir Pippin
    R3 no 2 She's Sensational....each way at $34 or better Scr
    R6 no 1 Terbium Scr.
    R7 no 3 Steel Prince Won $2


    LAY BETS:
    MR2 no 3 Dr Drill Ran unplaced. Lay bet Won
    SR9 no 10 Agassi Ran 2nd. Lay bet won

    Cheers n Beers

    Morning all. Last week was plagued by wet weather, track downgrades and late scratchings so lets hope today's program goes along without interruptions. Its a cold winters day here in Brisbane with current temperature of just 13deg and blustery conditions. Temperature is expected to rise to 23deg but that wind out there is cold and strong so racing in Brisbane will be affected.

    DOOMBEN:
    R1 no 4 Awake The Stars 2nd
    R2 no 9 ...thought I"ve Gotta Nel.. 4th .had a good each way chance here at around $10.

    R8 no 1 Osborne Bulls 2nd

    SCONE:
    R1 no 1 Military Zone 2nd
    R3 no 1 Libertini Won
    R8 no 3 Victorem 2nd.

    CAULFIELD:
    R1 no 1 Eastender
    R3 no 1 Zoutori Won $3
    R6 no 9 Moldova


    LAY BETS:

    Australia is currently in the thick of an election campaign. The present Government is the Liberal and National Party Coalition and the Opposition Party is the Labor Party.
    If you look at the betting markets the Labor Party are expected to win by anything from one seat to around seven so on Saturday night when the votes are counted the outcome will be known.
    If you are looking for a trading opportunity then if you can get $8 the Coalition then I suggest you take this and then trade out at a lower price as I expect the Coalition will firm a point or two before voting ceases.
    If you are looking for value then try the seat of Dickson where one of our best known sitting politicians is fighting hard to retain his seat. His opponent doesn't live in the electorate and has missed television debates and is heavily reliant on activists Get Up to try and push her across the line.
    Get Up are from New South Wales and parochial Queenslanders resent the invasion of activists from other States trying to tell us what to do.
    Ali France the Labor candidate is poor value as she is odds on to beat Peter Dutton.
    Currently Dutton is $2.30 and the value bet as he has been the local member for 18 years and is a proven performer as a senior member of the Coalition. In the interests of disclosure I took the $3 Dutton when betting first opened and I wont be trading out as my political bets are at the level of interest only bets.

    UPDATE: The $8 for the Coalition Party has now gone and currently sits around $6. I didnt quiet get the $8 and had to settle for a little less. However the trade returned a quick 20% on at risk stake monies so happy days and I hope you managed to do the same or better.
