    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!!
    R3 no 4 Snoopy Won $4.30

    R6 no 5 Ramtastic
    R9 no 8 Auerbach

    FLEMINGTON:

    R2 no 2 Lycurgus
    R4 no 1 Oceanex Won $6.60
    R8 no 13 Laure Me In Won $2.50

    ROSEHILL

    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

    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
    R5 no 11 Bright Idea....chance at odds ..currently $14

    R9 no 6 Shadal 3rd


    WARWICK FARM:
    R2 no 2 Noble Boy Won $2.25
    R5 no 7 Estijaab..2nd....thought Fiesta Won $4.80 was the logical danger
    R6 no 4 Champagne Cuddles Won $2.80


    CAULFIELD:
    R1 no 5 Silenz
    R4 no 1 Voodoo Lad 4th
    R7 no 4 Social Spin
    R8 no 6 D"Argento

    R4 no 6 Beat The Bell
    R5 no 8 Beat The Devil 2nd

    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
