    Quality racing again today with Rosehill hosting the 3yo Coolmore Classic with $600k up for grabs. Field size after scratchings is 17 so it will a wide betting race with the favourite Egg Tart at $5. Winners today look well concealed in the later races so lets hope we can manage to have a positive bank in hand before the last four races.
    Flemington also has some large fields with the exception of the Group 2 Blamey Stakes which despite the $200K prizemoney there are only 5 running.
    Racing in Brisbane heads off to near where the Commonwealth Games will be held at the Gold Coast. The overused Doomben track will be thankful of a restday.
    At least the weather looks good so it should be an ideal day to have a day out at the races.
    Lets hope we can find some winners for you and hopefully avoid an unfortunate result we had last week with the lay bets.

    Here are today's picks and as usual updates will occur as time permits.


    FLEMINGTON:
    R2 no 5 Holbein Won $5.50

    Plenty of action around today with the highlights being the $3.5m Golden Slipper race for 2 year olds and the $1m George Ryder Stakes where Winx dominates the betting.
    Eagle Farm racecourse is a mess as no one seems able to solve the problem of laying suitable turf down so racehorses can run on it. And there is growing concern over whats going to happen to betting when a turnover tax is introduced shortly. Mergers and takeovers have seen the ranks of Corporates reduced so the future betting landscape here is not all that rosy. Sports betting is still on the up and poker machines continue to be popular however racing turnover is flat. Interesting times ahead!!
    Here are todays selections and as usual will try and update as the day proceeds.
    Good luck with your investments.


    ROSEHILL:
    R1 no 3 I Am Excited Won $4.20
    R2 no 3 Karavali
    R4 no 1 Gailo Chop Won $2.25
    R5 no 4 Winx Won
    R7 no 10 Sunlight 3rd...danger is No 1 Written By 4th...throw in No 6 Ef Troop for the trifecta.
    R9 no 3 Sugarbella 2nd

    DOOMBEN:
    R6 no 2 Mr Marbelllouz Won
    R7 no 6 Criquette 3rd
    R9 no 8 Dont Leave Me Out


    MORNINGTON:
    R4 no 5 Freehearted
    R6 no 2 Stellar Collision Won $6.50
    R7 no 11 Kings Will Dream Won $2.50
    R9 no5 Heptagon Won $7.50


    LAY BETS:
    SR3 no 6 Alward Ran 2nd. Lay bet won

    Easter weekend is upon us and lets hope the sugar surge from the chocolate eggs works its magic and helps to locate those evasive winners. Last week was ok and nice to see that all of the lay bets did the right thing.
    Racing has returned to normal city venues with reasonable weather except for Brisbane where the weather has been showery. Track there is a heavy 8 which is a result of recent heavy rainfalls. Big race of the day is at Rosehill where the prizemoney for the Kia Tancred Stakes Group 1 race is $1.5m. The Vinery Stakes is also a Group One race at Rosehill and there the prizemoney is $500K. So expect keen competitive racing in Sydney today.
    Big news in Australia this week has all been about Australia's cricket team and a matter to do with a small piece of sandpaper and a cricket ball. Not good from Australia's viewpoint as we take our sport here seriously.
    Here are todays picks and as usual time permitting updates will occur as the card's progress.
    Good luck with your investments and I trust the Easter Bunny will be kind to you.!!


    ROSEHILL:
    R3 no 6 Nieta 4th
    R4 no 1 Daysee Doom
    R5 no 6 Mongolian Marshall 4th
    R6 no 1 Gailo Chop 4th
    R8 no 10 Cellerman Won $7
    R9 no 5 Osbourne Bulls Won $3.70


    CAULFIELD:
    R2 no 2 Hear The Chant
    R5 no 1 Wolfendale......each way @ $12 or better.
    R8 no 10 Widgee Turf...each way at $10 or better Won $12.50

    DOOMBEN:
    R1 no 5 Sawwell 4th
    R3 no 3 Miss Sara
    R5 no 2 Setoga 3rd
    R6 no 6 Gracida Won $3.40
    R8 no 3 Fortensky 4th
    R9 no 14 El Riccio

    Widgee Turf screamed down the outside last week to grab the chocolates for us at double figure odds. Unfortunately the lay bets failed to do the right thing so overall the day wasn't as good as it could have been. Thats racing and we do it all again today with the knowledge that there is a winner in every race!. Today is one of those strange days where racing in two states go bush. In Brisbane the racing has been shunted off to the garden city of Toowoomba where the big races are the time honoured Weetwood Handicap and the Toowoomba Cup. In Melbourne racing has been sent off to the picturesque city of Bendigo famous for its historical gold finds. Lets hope we can find some of that shiny stuff in the Gold Bracelet and/or the Golden Mile Handicap.
    Sydney today is at Randwick where the main race is the Doncaster Mile worth $3m in prizemoney followed by the TJ Smith Stakes worth $2.5m in prizemoney. The Derby will also be run for $2m prizemoney plus the Sires Produce has $1m up for grabs. To some the most interesting race on the program is the running of the Country Championships where country horses have competed in country races to obtain their chance to compete in a city event. Its been a popular competition and today will see an influx of rural based residents going to Randwick to see their local hero compete.
    As usual here are todays selections and updates will occur as the meetings progress, time permitting.


    RANDWICK:
    R1 no 1 Legend of Condor 2nd
    R3 no1 Catchy
    R4 no 1 Suncraze
    R5 no 8 Alward
    R7 no 1 Ace High..2nd...longshot place chances to no 4 Mongolian Conqueror and no 15 Mongolian Marshal.
    R8 no 1 Redzel 2nd
    R9 no 9 Kementari


    TOOWOOMBA:
    R7 no 1 Rudy........each way...currently $34
    R8 no 5 Ruettiger.....throw in No 2 Jumbo Prince 3rd @ 25/1 and No 3 Man Of His Words for the trifecta.
    R9 no 9 Real Ego.. 2nd...each way currently at $12.

    BENDIGO:
    R1 no 1 Gallic Chieftain 3rd
    R5 no 3 Blue Tycoon
    R7 no 5 Seaburge...each way....currently $13. 2nd @25/1
    R8 no 5 Holbien 2nd


    LAY BETS:
    MR6 no 2 French Emotion Started Fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    MR7 no 6 Kiwia Started Fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won.
    SR1 no 8 Embihaar Opened Fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won.

    Very ordinary day last weekend with a number of surprise results. Lets hope this week sees the return of some sanity. Brisbane racing is still suffering from a grass problem. In Doombens case its because of overuse and in Eagle Farms case its because of a lack of it.!! Therefore todays program has been shunted off to the Sunshine Coast where this much utiised track will host a nine race card.
    Todays big news centers around our top horse in Winx which will attempt to win its 25th consecutive race. The prizemoney for the race is a juicy $4m so if Winx wins as is expected then the owners will be able to afford a decent celebration. Its a ten race program at Randwick so its a big day for everyone with about $10m in total prizemoney to be distributed amongst the lucky ones.
    Here are today's selections and time permitting updates will occur as the meetings progress.

    RANDWICK:
    R2 no 2 Isuarian
    R 4 no 4 Bon Amis
    R5 no 1 Viridine
    R6 no 5 Luvaluva
    R7 no 9 Winx Won
    R8 no 1 Almandin
    R10 no 4 Raiment....each way at around $12

    SUNSHINE COAST:
    R2 no 1 Blue Book 3rd @ $8
    R9 no 4 Guard of Honour 2nd

    CAULFIELD:
    R2 no 7 Amortentia 3rd
    R3 no 2 Savacool Won $6
    R5 no 2 Han Xin 3rd
    R7 no 6 William Thomas 2nd
    R9 no 3 Quilate....longshot currently $26......rough place chance.

    LAY BETS:
    MR3 no 1 Palazzo Vecchio Started Fav. Ran unplaced. Lay bet won
    MR 4 no 12 Top of the Range Ran 2nd. Lay bet won
    SR9 no 3 Dixie Blossoms Ran unplaced. Lay bet won


    Cheers n beers
