    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

    Spring is almost here and that heralds the return of the very best in our country seeking the big prize money that our Carnivals provide. Last week we were witness to the return of Winx, the best horse currently racing in Australia and certainly up there as one of the best in the world. It missed the start due to a bungle in the stalls and was tailed off last in an unsuitable sprint race. The jockey quietly made up ground however was still last when the short straight arrived for the sprint home. Of course it stormed down the outside and picked up the leader within the shadows of the post as only a champion can.
    Todays racing is competitive wherever you look so winners wont be easily found. The racing at Brisbane has been sent to the Gold Coast where large fields are the order of the day.
    Lets hope we can find a few winners and time permitting will update whenever I can.
    Here are todays selections:

    GOLD COAST:
    R1 no 8 Of The Day Won $3.30
    R3 no 7 Bonsho 3rd
    R7 no 1 Shogun Sun 2nd

    ROSEHILL:
    R1 no 3 Lifesaver 3rd
    R2 no 5 Prada Miss 4th
    R3 no 3 Tango Miss $Won $4.50
    R5 no 2 Classic Uniform 2nd....danger is the duel acceptor King Viv.
    R6 no 1 Astoria 3rd
    R7 no 1 Pariah Won $2.50
    R8 no 7 Francesco
    R9 no 1 Bonny O'Reilly Won $4.50

    MOONEE VALLEY:
    R1 no 4 Charlevoix
    R3 no 5 Garrard
    R4 no 12 Sin To Win 2nd
    R6 no 3 Banipur 2nd
    R7 no 10 Heatherly 2nd

    The return of Spring at last and it brings with it some of our best racehorses as they chase the big bucks that Group races have on offer. Tracks are all Good on the eastern seaboard with lovely warm sunshine with the possible exception of Moonee Valley where the sun is competing with layers of cloud.
    Enough of the ramblings ....lets see if we can pick a few winners again today and hopefully get a hotpot beaten with the Lay Bets. Almost made the Fav (Houtzen) in the Mitty's Stakes a lay because its the first time clockwise racing for this horse and has drawn awkwardly in Barrier 6. However its a local horse so despite my head saying its a clear risk my heart would like to see it win.
    Here are todays selections and updates will be done throughout the day as the meetings progress.

    MOONEE VALLEY:
    R1 no 9 Spainish Reef 2nd
    R4 no 7 Harlow Gold
    R5 no 7 Houtzen (wishful thinking???) 3rd
    R8 no r He's Our Rokkii

    R2 no 1 Suncraze Won $2.80
    R4 no 3 Addictive Nature 3rd
    R5 no 3 Deploy. Won $3.70 Class horse returning is2nd Egg Tart.
    R6 no 8 Ravi Won $8
    R8 no 13 Zumberlina Won $5
    R9 no 3 Interlocuter Won but lost on protest.

    DOOMBEN:
    R4 no 1 Charlie Boy...obvious danger is no 6 Mystic Opal 3rd
    R5 no 5 Gatlinburg Won $7
    R6 no 1 Mr Epic 3rd
    R8 no 6 Sabkhat Won $2.10

    LAY BETS:
    SR1 no 5 Mariquita Ran 2nd. Lay bet won
    SR3 no 1 ALward Started $3 fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    SR7 no 5 Menari Won $2.60 Lay bet lost

    Morning all and welcome to what looks like a great days racing. We had a controversial finish last week when our selection Interlocter won the last by a clear margin only to lose it on protest. It was a bitter pill to swallow as Interlocter was well backed and was the final Quaddie leg where many of us had it going for a nice collect. Thats racing so its onward and upward as we try and beat the books again this week. Australia's Number One horse Winx goes around today and its a $1.10 fav. Thats 10/1 on in the other language. This week I have put it in as a lay because its poor value and on watching replays the horse doesnt appear to be going as well as it has done in the past. Champions have a habit of proving you wrong and because its the peoples popular choice there is a part of me that would be happy to see it win however I simply cant back it at the price.
    Lets hope we can find you some winners again today and as usual updates will occur as the meetings progress.
    Good luck with your investments.
    DOOMBEN:
    R1 no 2 Hard Stride
    R6 no 11 Impregnable Won $3

    R1 no 1 Jorda
    R3 no 12 Mr Sneaky 2nd
    R4 no 6 Japonisme each way at $14. Scales of Justice 2nd is the horse to watch.
    R5 no 6 Catchy Won $4
    R7 no 1 Hartnell 2nd ...racing well and entitled to be odds on. Black Heart Bart 3rd (currently around $8) is the value bet.

    LAY BETS:

    This weekend will see the first wave of summer heat with temperatures at Sydney (Rosehill) expected to be around 35 degrees. As we haven't had a lead up to the sudden increase in temperatures there is concern that some horses today with their winter coats may be adversely affected. Time will tell if this is correct. As many of you will know attendances at our major race meetings have been falling as the cost of going to the races has become a detriment. Excessive drink and food costs, gate charges and parking costs all add up to an expensive day out. Especially when you can sit in the comfort at home or in your local TAB and use your phone/computer to search for the best prices without any effort and you can obtain your food and drinks at acceptable prices.
    I was therefore pleased to see that at last someone has got the message and has come up with a package deal that is attractive. Not sure of the full details however I think the marketing group is Compass and they are offering a package deal at the races for $49 which includes course entry, parking and some complementary drinks and food. Very attractive if this is correct.
    On with the main game so here are todays selections and if time permits updates will be posted in blue as we move through the programs. Sorry Guys. No more updates today. Will do these later
    Good luck with your investments.

    Morning all and its another bright sunny day as summer has arrived with temps in the 35 degrees Celsius mark. Its a long weekend for we Queenslanders and Victoria gets one too. Consequently the racing in these two States is widely distributed with racing at the Sunshine Coast today whilst Victoria goes out to Mornington. There are two major events here apart from the racing and they are the AFL Grand Final today at the MCG in Melbourne and the NRL grand final to be played in Sydney on Sunday. So plenty of sporting action around the east coast of Australia over this long weekend and plenty of racing as we head to the Cox Plate, The Melbourne Cup, the Caulfield Cup and the Everest.
    Winners were hard to find last week so here's hoping we can locate a few more this time around.
    As usual will try and update as we move through the various race cards.

    RANDWICK:
    R1 no 1 Bondi 2nd

    Todays highlight is the running of the time honoured Edward Manifold Stakes where Australia's number one horse Winx steps out as a $1.20 favourite.
    It will be an interesting race of tactics as Winx has only one horse to beat and thats the promising stayer in Humidor from the all conquering D. K. Weir stable. Winx has the benefit of a 2kg weight advantage and its won its last 20 or so races so it should salute again. Humidor is the obvious quinella selection and if you want one for the trifecta throw in Sir Isaac Newton and hope for a result other than the expected one.
    Second placings have diluted the results in recent weeks so here's hoping for more winners and less seconds.
    The racing in Queensland ventures off to the Gold Coast where the winners are well hidden and look hard to find. There are a number of horses today who have traveled south and some who have gone north. Usually this is a pointer that they are expected to do well as no trainer or owner simply takes their horse across the border for the fun of it.
    Time permitting there will be updates provided as the meetings progress.
    Hope you have a successful day.

    Well its showtime for the much publicised Everest race. For those of you who haven't heard about this race then you have to be outside of Australia so let me give you a short summary of what this race is all about. Firstly the hype and publicity here has been unprecedented. The Everest has its own TV channel, full page adverts in most major newspapers, plenty of articles about it and there is even a half price package deal where you go and watch the race, receive drinks, and a facebook and other goodies for just $49. Basic entry fee today is $30 so its a cheap day out particularly if you stay on for the concert. The Everest concept is based on an American idea. The easiest way to explain it is that owners purchase slots at a cost of AUD$600K each. There are 12 slots so that puts $7.2m on the table. The race club then tops up the prize money to AUD $10m making it the number one race in Australia prize money wise. Interestingly there are three equal favourites at around the $5 mark as I write this so its a wide open race with the winner well concealed. After the race there will be some very happy owners that have watched their interest run a place and a group of other owners who will be lamenting the loss of their $600k slot fee. Crowd numbers will be interesting as the future of this concept may well hang on how popular this concept is and how large the turnover is by bookies and totes in comparison to say the Melbourne Cup.
    Weather in Sydney is overcast with a chance of a bit of drizzle which is disappointing for the Everest organisers.
    Here are today's selections.

    RANDWICK:
    R1 no 3 My Tagoson ...has been good to us in the past ...hoping it is again today!!
    R2 no 2 Spin 2nd
    R3 no 1 Regimen 4th
    R4 no 11 Suncraze 2nd
    R6 no 2 Big Duke Won $2.60
    R7 no 12 In Her Time. Won $2.50......thought Takedown was a good each way chance.
    R8 Think best chances are (in order) 2.Vega Magic 2nd,9 English,5. Clearly Innocent and no 1 Chautaugua 4th
    R9 no 1 Happy Clapper 2nd
    R10 no 8 Machinegun Jubs Late Scr. ....definite danger is Latin Boy.3rd

    DOOMBEN:
    R7 no 1 Man of His Word 2nd

    CAULFIELD:
    R6 no 2 Alizee 3rd
    R8 no 11 Kementari 2nd
    R9 no 9 Egg Tart.....danger is no 10 Mr Sneaky
    R10 no 9 Shiedel

    LAY BETS:
    MR3 no 3 Desert Lashes Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    MR7 no 1 Hartnell Started $4 Second fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won

    Just had a quick holiday in lovely Fiji so all rev'd up for a good day today. The big race today is the running of Australia's number one Weight For Age race in the WS COX Plate, a time honoured race that allows our best to compete at a weight level thats fair for all. Its a race worth AUD$3m in prizemoney so it understandably attracts the best horses. Our best horse in Winx is the very short favourite, its won this race twice already and is expected to easily complete the trifecta.
    Here are today's final selections:

    MOONEE VALLEY:
    R2 no 2 Badajoz 3rd
    R3 no 4 Trekking 3rd
    R4 no 8 Demerara 3rd
    R5 no 5 Invincibella 3rd
    R6 no 3 Auvray
    R7 no 3 Glam Guru 4th
    R8 no 4 Religify 2nd
    R9 no 8 Winx .Won......For the tri throw in Galilo Chop, Happy Clapper and Humidor.2nd
    R10 no 9 Aloisia Won $3.60

    RANDWICK:
    R1 No 2 Groundbreak 2nd
    R2 No 9 I am Serious Won $3.10
    R3 no 1 Tactical Advantage 3rd
    R4 no 8 Ready For Danger
    R5 no 2 Stonebrook.2nd....should win this but poor value. No 8 Passage of Time Won $5 each way is worth a shot.
    R6 no 8 Redouble
    R7 no 11 Malmas.4th...obvious danger is Karavali Won $4.80
    R8 no 12 Man of His Word........just love the way he flys home
    R9 no 8 Interlocuter Won $2.10

    DOOMBEN:
    R3 no 4 Girl In A Million Late Scr.
    R5 no 15 Dont Doubt Da Wife 2nd
    R6 no 14 Colosimo 4th
    R7 no 7 Tycoon Ace.

    Today is the biggest racing day for Australia with the running of the Melbourne Cup. This year its particularly hard to pick the winner because of the strong contingent of foreign raiders that are seeking a part of the lucrative prizemoney. As I write there will be 23 starters for the two mile race and every runner has a chance.
    Here are my picks for the race including the exotics as the pools for these are huge and if you manage to snare a result here it could be a game changer. You can take an exotic ticket for as little as 1% of the winning dividend (or even less) so its worth a shot.

    MELBOURNE CUP SELECTIONS RACE 7 3200m Starts at 3pm Eastern Australian Time.

    WIN: 7. Johannes Vermeer 2nd
    2nd: 5 Marmelo
    3rd. 23 Amelia's Star
    4th. 13 Big Duke 4th

    TRIFECTA: 1,2,3,5,9,10,13,20,22,23,
    FIRST FOUR: Same numbers.

    Good luck if you are having a bet here and fingers crossed for an exotic result.!!
