  • Tried a different approach last week by reducing the number of selections. This resulted in 11 wins out of 17 picks so a 65% strike rate is encouraging.
    News from Oz is that the UK strain of Covid-19 has arrived here and our panic prone State Government in Queensland immediately put us into a three day isolation in Brisbane whilst they pondered their actions. The biggest issue we have here is that the vaccines are being very slowly distributed and not all of our front line nurses have had their shots. In fairness our supply has been halted by the actions of Brexit countries and the fact that we sent several planeloads of our vaccine quota to Papua New Guinea where the virus has been running rampart. In my case for example I wont get my shot until the middle of April now because of the delays. And yes I am in lockdown, but only for another two hours, as we have been given a good behaviour pass to allow us to enjoy the goodies that Easter Bunny will surely bring.
    Lockdown has not helped my punting as I have had 17 bets this week to date resulting in just 6 winners,2 seconds and 1 third with 8 unplaced. That last figure is the one that hurts.
    Racing this weekend is focused on the Sydney venue where a number of quality races will be run and won.
    Lets hope the punting gods are kind to us.
    For the selections below, racing begins on Saturday with Caulfield at 12.25 AEST which is around 2.25am London time. The final race on the card will be at Ascot at 20.15pm AEST, which is 10.15am London time.
    There are also races at Oakbank on Saturday which is one of the few courses in Australia that actively encourage races over fences. On Saturday the fifth race on their program will be the Great Eastern Steeplechase that is run over (almost) 5000 meters. It's not exactly like your Grand National in the UK, but it's arguably the closest race we have to your spectacular event. On Monday Oakbank will also host a hurdle race that is a must see. It's a great (long) weekend of racing in a country town that is fortunate enough to be close to some outstanding wineries.That may or may not be the real reason why I regularly made the pilgrimage to Oakbank every Easter to attend the races there during my time in South Australia!
    Here are the venues for Saturday's races and the selections will go up shortly followed by the late mail.

    • Australian news is consumed by Covid-19. One day its news that our vaccines have been held up by the EU because of greater need requirements elsewhere. Not so says the EU. Then we have the concern about blood clots from the Astrazeneca vaccine which reportedly affects 0.003 per cent of those injected and they seem for some unknown reason to be mainly in the 30-40 year old category. So should we stop and rethink? Perhaps the UQ option here is better as we have now learnt that apparently they have fixed the issues they had and its good to go and instead of two shots you only need one.
      So its no wonder frustration abounds here as there have been only 1m of our population vaccinated so far and there are another 20m or so to go. UPDATE: Now we learn that Australia has done a u-turn with AstraZeneca's vaccines in that people under 50 years of age have been advised not to get the vaccine because of the risk of blood clots!
      In my case I did get a call to pop in for a shot but alas no shot. Instead they insisted I fill out the answers to 11 questions that all started with "Do you or have you ever had....? Now we will just take your blood pressure, which was up a tad, reflecting my frustration level because all I wanted was a jab!
      "Now as we don't have any vaccines yet (thanks to the crazy hopeless distribution business hobbled by National and State bureaucracies) would you mind coming back next Wednesday and we will (hopefully) give you your first of two jabs."
      Fair dinkum. This lot couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery !!
      The good news is that our friends across the Tasman have announced that New Zealand is open to all of Australia and you don't need proof of having been vaccinated in order to go. The bad news is that frustrated Australians have booked airline seats to the point where you cant get a seat for several months.
      Frustrating as all of the above is my punting for the week has unfortunately followed suit. Of the 21 bets to date there have been just 5 winners, 4 seconds, 1 third and 11 that missed a place.
      And before I forget thanks to those who post Thank You on the base of some of these posts. Its very much appreciated.
      There are some very good races with quality fields at Randwick this Saturday. The Doncaster Mile has 22 acceptors with Mugatoo being the 4/1 favourite. Prior to the Doncaster there is the Australian Derby and TJ Smith Stakes.
      Saturdays selections and race cards will be posted shortly. These races commence with Rosehill at 11.35 AEST which is 2.35am London time. The final race on the card will be at Ascot at 7.10pm Saturday, which converts to 10.10am Saturday London time.
      The selections will go up shortly and these will be added to or changed as the late mail and scratchings are known.
      May your day be a winning one and more importantly may you stay safe and well.

      Very sad to hear this morning of the passing of the Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99. He was a great man and a dedicated loyalist. His support of the Queen was quite amazing and he will be sadly missed by many. He visited Australia an incredible 35 times and I had the pleasure of meeting him on one noteworthy occasion. Rest in peace Your Highness and enjoy the tributes that will surely follow from those who love and admire you.

      • If you live in Australia and you want to vaccinated then you need to exercise patience. I received my first jab of the AstraZeneca vaccine yesterday along with others and our next jab is some 12 weeks away. Thankfully no side effects, unlike my dear old wife, who had to raid the Panadol box in order to get some relief from headaches. Out of population of 26m, Australia has just ticked over 1.3m jabs, so we are well behind in terms of what needs to be done. But the good news is we can go about our business, attend footy games, talk in groups and with no masks.
        Racing here is pretty much normal. And dear old wife managed to snare a winner at Armidale on Tuesday when her horse led most of the way to win comfortably paying $5.20 on the Fair.
        This Saturday we have more quality racing here on offer and hopefully we can find sufficient winners in order to turn a profit. On a personal note I have had 19 bets so far this week, with 7 winners, 3 seconds, 5 thirds, and 4 unplaced. Much better result so hopefully the tide is turning in the right direction.
        Racing for the venues below commence with the first at Randwick at 11.30am AEST, which is 2.30am London time, and the last race will be run and won at Ascot at 7.00pm, which I think is 10.00am London time on Saturday morning.
        Here are early selections and venues. The selections will be altered, increased,changed, etc etc as we get close to final acceptances.
        May you all stay safe and our best wishes to you all in what are difficult times.

        • Another excellent Card of Saturday racing awaits us and hopefully we can find plenty of winners. Last week was heading towards a very ordinary result until the eighth race at Ascot where little Hoi An despite being last at the top of the straight, sprouted wings to fly home at double figure odds. It paid $18 on Betfair but the $15 I received was a tad shorter, but nonetheless very welcome as the account sprung back into positive thanks to little ole Hoi An. On the subject of punting I have had 19 bets this week so far with 7 winners, 2 seconds, 1 third and 9 that didn't bother the camera.
          The news that we are receiving here in Oz is that the UK is still experiencing lock-downs so I feel for you all. We only had to endure 3 days of lock-downs in Queensland and that was not pleasant, so I can only imagine what its like for you guys to have to endure extended lock-down periods. So here's hoping that this unwelcome menace that's creating havoc with our lives, disappears quickly, and we can all get back to normality asap. If its any consolation you are not as worse off as India for example, where its fast becoming Covid Central because they don't have lock-downs.
          I did watch Prince Philip's funeral which went off without a hitch. It was a moving event and the world has lost a great man. He did visit Australia some say 21 times officially, others have the count at 35, as they included transit stops whilst on the way to and from Pacific Islands, including New Zealand. Either way he was very well liked here as he was in many other parts of the globe. I did have the pleasure of meeting him briefly (very briefly in fact!) when I was fortunate enough to be part of a three man crew that won a dinghy race at the Royal Hobart Regatta many years ago. He was a very inspirational person who created the Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme that was a positive life changer for many.
          Thanks again for those that read this blurb and especially those that leave their Thanks in the box below. Its very much appreciated.
          Racing for the venues below commence on Saturday with the first race at Doomben at 11.32 AEST, which is 2.32 am, London time, and the last as usual will be run at Ascot at 6.55pm AEST which converts to 9.55am London time. Cant guarantee we will pluck another $15 plus winner but who knows when Lady Luck will smile upon us.
          The early selections will be posted shortly and these as is the norm will be altered, amended, changed, added to etc etc when the scratchings and late mail are to hand.
          May your day be a winning one and please stay safe during this difficult time.

          • Just been enjoying a few days at a resort at Coolum which is a coastal area north of Brisbane hence the reason this post is a bit behind, time wise. Still getting over the effects of far too much grog in the system, but its not often I let my hair down, so all is good.
            Last week wasn't much fun with plenty of seconds and only 7 winners including the lays.
            She who must be obeyed has her little filly in a Class 1 Race at Gunnedah on Monday. Its drawn the outside alley, which is a definite disadvantage, and the horse inside her is also a speedster, so she will probably end up wide on a circuit that doesn't suit being off the rails. Haven't seen a market yet however I would expect her to be around a $8 chance in what is a tough race with several chances. SWMBO will be delighted if her little filly manages to finish in the top three.
            On the personal punting scene managed to bet on 22 races this week, despite the fact I had none whilst at Coolum, and managed just 6 winners, 4 seconds, 3 thirds and the rest ran unplaced.
            Racing on Saturday for the meetings below commences with the first race at Eagle Farm at 11.30 am AEST, which converts to 2.30am London time, and the last race will be at Ascot at 6.55pm AEST, which is 9.55am London time.
            May the punting gods be kind to you all and please stay safe during these difficult times.

            • Well the missus's horse couldn't cope with the extreme barrier and tossed in the towel once it became apparent she wasn't going to get to the lead. That's her racing assignments for a while as she will now go for a spell and chew on some nice juicy grass on the central coast of New South Wales.
              We have been having a bit of rain here lately which is sorely needed as the gauge is reading less rain than this time last year, so I hope that's not a sign that we will have a long,hot, and dry summer.
              Heading off to the Northern Territory again shortly. First stop will be Darwin to catch up with some thirsty mates, and then off to Arnhem Land to see how the country has changed since we were last there. It's only recently that an all weather road has been constructed to the township of Gove in Arnhem Land, so rather then fly in as we have done in the past, this time the missus and I, with a couple of ex residents, will hire two four wheel drives, and do the 1000 kilometer plus drive from Darwin, and hopefully not hit too many kangaroos.
              Racing here this week has been dominated by the Warrnambool three day event which features hurdle and steeplechase races on each day. These are rare now in Australia with the annual Oakbank Carnival in South Australia being one of the few programs that annually feature hurdle races. Protests by animal activists has been the major reason for the reduction, and even the events that still run are done so on the basis that the hurdles will fall over if you blow on them hard enough!! The Grand National Hurdle over 5500m is the highlight with prizemoney of $350K.
              My personal punts this week totalled 17 bets with 9 winners, 2 seconds and 1 third and 5 that simply couldn't be bothered to have their photo's taken. Good result for a change.!
              Local news here has been consumed by news of what's happening in India. Our Government had a knee jerk reaction and banned the entry of anyone from India for 14 days and if you did arrive here you faced up to 5 years in jail and/or up to $66,000 in fines. Of course someone forgot that our national cricket team are in India earning squillions so instead of heading back to Oz, some of them have headed off to the Maldives to pass some time. Fortunately our Government have backed down on the fines and any possible jail time after reassessing their actions in light of many protests, and have repented by sending planeloads of oxygen tanks to assist the Indian Government in dealing with the covid crises.
              Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is battling this goddam awful virus and we all hope and pray that vaccines provide us with the pathway back to normality. Please stay safe and if you get the opportunity to take the vaccine then please do so, subject of course to your Doctors advice.
              Enough of the rant; lets get on with picking winners for Saturday's races in Oz. This is one of those odd weekends where racing heads off in different directions. The major races are at Morphettville in South Australia and Sydney races have been shunted off to Gosford, whilst Brisbane races have been punted down to the Gold Coast. Yes its the start of the silly season so lets hope we can find winners amongst this lot.
              The first of the selected races below will commence with Gold Coast and the last will be at Ascot.
              Gold Coast kicks off at 11.25 AEST, which is 2.25am Saturday, London time, and the last race will be run and won at Ascot at 7.00pm which is 10.00am London time.
              The early selections will go up shortly and these will be amended once the late mail and scratchings are discovered.
              May your day on the punt be a good one and may you all stay safe, and thanks to those who read this and leave their Thanks below. It's much appreciated.

              • Well another weekend is upon us and the world is not getting any safer with reports and whispers of impending clashes, stouches and even war, and of course the one subject that continues to dominate the headlines is that goddam virus. I did read reports that safe clusters were emerging in Europe, so you now have an opportunity to travel outside of Great Britain. I hope that's correct and those that can, do take advantage of the opportunity to visit, or revisit, places of interest within Europe.
                Racing continues unabated here in Australia as if nothing has happened virus wise. Quite amazing actually and a credit to those who have managed to convince authorities that having people sitting at home betting is much better than doing nothing!!.
                Had a big storm here last night which made a lot of noise and left our swimming pool overflowing but otherwise all good. We don't normally get storms like that in mid May so that's left a few scratching their noggins as to what's happening to the weather in Oz.
                On the racing front here results have been ordinary with plenty of double figure priced winners saluting. My personal results have plummeted down the tube with 19 bets so far resulting in just 4 winners, 5 seconds, and 2 thirds.
                Racing this week returns to the capital cities so hopefully the results will improve compared to last week where I couldn't even find a placegetter at Gosford.
                This weekend for the venues below start at Rosehill at 11.30am AEST, which should convert to 2.30am Saturday morning London time. The lucky last will be at Ascot at 7.00pm AEST, which converts to 10.00am London time.
                For those of you that read this blurb I do hope and pray that you are safe and well and you are handling the situation as best as you can given the circumstances. I also hope the Gods of Odds have been kind to you and you have found plenty of winners in recent times.
                Here below are the fields for Saturday. The early selections will follow shortly and then the late mail arrives just prior to kickoff on Saturday morning. Hope you manage to find some winners.

                • Last Saturday was the worst result ever since I started doing this some 20 years ago. There seemed to be no sane reason why horses who have a clear record of consistent performance suddenly failed to place. Now you can always forgive one or two because of a poor run as they may have been interfered with, came out of a bad barrier, jockey lost his/her compass and a myriad of other plausible excuses. But for 15 selections not to figure in the placings and just two winners is deplorable. So I rang a trainer in NSW to ask why? He responded by saying "Have you noticed anything different weather wise? Sure I replied. "We have had two days in a row where the temp went down to 7 degrees which makes it the coldest May mornings I can recall." "Well that's nothing compared to what we have experienced here where the temps have hit minus 4, and others have recorded minus 7 degrees. So what do you think that does to a horse who started a summer campaign and is now walking around with a blanket to keep warm?"
                  "Ok so what's the reason for the sudden drop in temps?" "The cause apparently is the unusual winds coming up from Antarctica. These normally reach southern Tasmania but this year for some unknown reason its gone up as far as Queensland. If you look at the temps for Stanthorpe area you will find minus 2.2deg Celsius. Have you ever heard of such a low temperature in May around Stanthorpe? And it also snowed!! "So how do you think horses perform when they are asked to compete in colder than normal temperatures?" They don't like it, just as we too complain when it rains, they also react to colder than normal conditions."
                  So what happened to global warming?? I asked with tongue in cheek! "Well its getting colder here and the records clearly reflect that, so those Greta enthusiasts out there should look at our weather trends. Its getting colder bloody global warming in this part of the world!!

                  My personal bets this week reflect the poor Saturday results with 20 bets with 5 winners, 2 seconds, and one third with 12 unplaced. That's a loss for me as the price of the winners were not enough to cover the place bet losses.

                  This Saturday we return to normality with no major events outside the usual venues, with the exception of Belmont in Western Australia. The first race for the venues below will be at Rosehill at 11.25 am AEST which converts to 2.25am London time on Saturday morning, and the final race will be held at Belmont at 6.55pm AEST which converts to 9.55am London time.
                  I trust the results will be much improved this time around and our results are positive.

                  Guys I tried to post some tips for the UK races yesterday but my source had some issues so it didnt happen. So today I'm posting tips for the UK just to see how they go. Depending on the outcomes I may make this a regular feature as betting into Australian races isnt easy due to the time differentials.
                  As always your thoughts and/or suggestions here are welcome.

                  • There are times when I think Australians sincerely believe that we are the so called "Lucky Country" and therefore they can sit back and enjoy this perception. Many are heavily reliant on the Government for their income and these include public servants, politicians, dole and other recipients of the generosity of the Government purse. Many of these are highly critical of the level of "income" and want supplementary benefits to compensate to enhance their position in society. Read here the "need" for bigger and better things like house, cars, boats and holidays.
                    The truth is that Australia is no longer the lucky country. We have a debt bigger than Mt Everest and our Governments of which we have seven States and Territories, and 540 Local Governments that ensure that we will never return in my lifetime at least to a balanced budget. We spend zillions on State hospitals yet my poor old mother in law who suffered a suspected heart attack this week and had to be rushed to hospital encountered what is known here as "ramping". So here we are at 8.30pm inside an ambulance that pulls into the emergency area and stops. Nothing happens and wont for 2 hours because we are experiencing a practise called "ramping". That's were the ambulance with two ambos and one patient sit on the ramp waiting for someone to come and collect the patient. That's both sad and disgraceful, but an example of how bad Australia has become due in part because of union involvement in rostering staff. And don't get me started about schools where our level of education results position us behind Kurdistan.It's no coincidence that union and left wingers are prominent here too with their agendas more important than the education of our young.
                    Our forefathers must be looking down on us with anger as they see the country they worked so hard to build ruined by greed,laziness and a I don't care, its not my problem,attitude.
                    On the punting scene its been a busier than normal week with 34 bets resulting in 11 winners, 8 seconds 4 thirds and 11 unplaced. Have been experimenting with a different selection method so the additional bets this week reflect the increased activity. I do get some UK tips included in the late mail so I will share these with you and see how they perform. If they turn out okay then I will include them on a regular basis.
                    The Group racing action switches to Eagle Farm in Brisbane this Saturday with the highlights being the Group 1 Queensland Derby over 2,400m and the
                    Sir Kingsford-Smith Cup runover 1300m. Kingsford- Smith was an aviator that contributed greatly to our history having made the first eastward crossing of the Pacific to the United States and then in 1928 he flew from the United States to Australia. Ironic isn't it that today we cant hop aboard a flight to the United States.!!
                    Enough of the rants, lets get down to finding some winners. Saturdays racing commences with the first at Randwick at 11.25 am AEST which converts to 2.25am London time. Last race will be at Belmont Park at 6.50pm AEST which is 9.50am London Time.
                    Here are the early selections which will be updated with selections and late mail as the start time looms.

                    • This covid threat is not going away and looks likely to get worse as the virus mutates. But has Australia overreacted? Well there are many around at present who say we should be opening our borders to not only close neighbours but also to areas in the Northern Hemisphere. To lessen the chance of a spread here all arrivals should be tested prior to departure and again on arrival. If anyone tests positive its off to a purpose made centre such as Howard Springs in the Northern Territory where that can he held for up to 14 days to ensure they are no risk to the community. Now the question here has Australia over reacted?. Currently Victoria is in lockdown and the earliest they will be out is after 14 days have passed. This is the fourth time Victoria has been in lockdown so it must be pretty serious. Well at least you would think so. Now lets look at the deaths from covid in Australia for this year. The number is 1. No that's not a misprint just one single death. We don't even have one person currently in critical care so why the panic? Why are we asking Victorians to submit to home detention and what is the benefit here. Well its safety first based on a lot of maybe worse case scenarios.
                      And of course the economy is now ratshit in Victoria so the Government there has announced a raft of new charges such as land tax and increased levies in a desperate attempt to balance the books. Go figure!
                      On the personal punt scene this week to date I have 41 bets for just 6 winners, 3 seconds, 5 thirds and a whopping 27 unplaced. Normally that would have resulted in a large negative, however one winner was at $16, and another at $13, plus one of the placegetters ran third at 50/1 and paid $7 the place. So whilst I did finish in the red it wasn't that harmful to the Bank.
                      As you may have noticed I have trialling UK tips from a source here that is normally quite reliable. My impressions to date are that the selections are short, sometimes odds on and on paper that wont produce a profit, unless the win strike rate is around 44% or better. I will, for the benefit of giving the trial a fair go, post the selections for Thursday, Friday and Saturday; however, unless there is a remarkable turnaround then the UK selections wont continue.
                      Racing this weekend here is focused on Eagle Farm in Brisbane where the winter carnival continues where the highlight is the Group 1 Queensland Oaks.
                      The venues below commence with the first race being run at Rosehill at 11.20am AEST, which converts I think to 2.20am London Time. The final race of the day will be at Belmont in Western Australia and that's set down to go at 6.50 pm AEST, which is 9.50am London time if my calculator is correct.
                      May I wish you well with your punting endeavours and also of course a safe week away from that insidious disease that permeates our lives and lifestyle.

                      • Cold air from Antarctica arrived last night so our overnight temperature went down to 6deg Celsius. That's the coldest June morning I can recall for some time so global warming isn't an issue here at the moment. Spotlight this Saturday is on Brisbane's Eagle Farm racecourse where the time honoured Stradbroke Handicap will be run over 1400m.Its one of six Group races there on Saturday so it will be a great days racing and one that I'm keen to get stuck into. Perhaps the most famous Stradbroke win was by a New Zealand horse by the name of Rough Habit which was stone motherless last on the turn but rocketed home to collect the chocolates. They named a bar at the racecourse after him following the win and I managed to spend some of my winnings there that day, recalling the excitement of backing good old Roughie.
                        This year the Stradbroke has 20 starters after scratchings so it will be another charge of the Light Brigade enactment when they turn the corner for the run home.
                        Covid-19 continues to dominate the news here with concerns here and in New South Wales about a couple that left Victoria, whilst that State was under lockdown, and drove to several New South Wales townships, and then ended up in Caloundra, which is a sea side resort area north of Brisbane. The woman passenger has tested positive to Covid, so now there is a panic in place to trace all of the folk that she may have had close contact with, in various shopping center's, motels, service stations, etc etc. Victoria has now come out of full lockdown and is a partial lockdown that somehow is expected to ensure that Covid doesn't spread. Still only one death attributed to Covid in Australia this year, so either we are doing an incredible good job at protecting the population, or we are just lucky, or the small population spread over a large continent has successfully hindered the spread of what is a disease that thrives on close contacts. Fingers crossed it stays out of our lives.
                        On a personal note have had 40 bets so far this week resulting in 7 winners, 8 seconds,5 thirds and 20 unplaced. My quest for longshot glory continued with two winners at long prices, Setanta @ 33/1 and Baller @ $14 which kept the Bank afloat. Interesting to see how the quest handles the tricky program at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
                        Action for the fields below commences on Saturday at Randwick at 11.20am AEST , which is 2.20am London time and the final race will be at Belmont at 18.35 AEST, which I think is 9.35 am London Time. (If I'm wrong please let me know!)
                        The short experiment with UK Racing tips will now be abandoned as the results were simply below par. I may experiment instead with some longshot tips on Aussie races as these have held their own quite well of late.
                        Good luck with your punting picks and I hope and pray that all of you are staying safe from that rotten Covid disease that permeates our lives.

                        • This week the news here has been dominated by the G7 event in Cornwall. Looks like what was old is now new again with the accord reached between Australia and England looking very much like the old arrangement that existed prior to Brexit. Don't think we will exporting apples from Tasmania like we did prior to Brexit, as all of the farms have since been removed, however you will get to once again enjoy our finest beers and wines as our export products are better than what is sold locally. Australia is looking for a fresh live lobster market as well, so maybe you will also get to taste our world class lobster product. Believe me a cold beer with lobster is not the worst meal you will ever experience!!
                          Personally I'm grateful that it was Boris making the calls and not Joe Biden. Sad to see someone in that position that simply is struggling. As Kenny Rogers once said "You need to know when to hold them and know when to fold them". If he was a racehorse he would be enjoying lush green paddocks by now.!
                          The Brisbane racing carnival is now over and the action moves across to Belmont racetrack in Perth in Western Australia. Hopefully we can find a winner or two for you amongst the stars on show there.
                          On a personal note its been a busy week again with a small loss resulting from the 33 bets to date. Winners numbered just 5 with the best being Brooklyn Hustle at $8.50. There were 4 seconds and 5 thirds and the rest failed to trouble the judge.
                          This Saturday the below events commence with the first race at Rosehill kicking off at 11.30 am AEST, which is 2.30am London time, and the last will be run and won at Belmont at 18.45pm AEST, which converts to 9.45 am on Saturday morning London time.
                          And thanks too for those who read this and leave their Thank You's in the box...its much appreciated.

                          • Well the time has arrived for the wife and I to pack our bags and head off to the Northern Territory. First stop will be the city of Darwin where multiculturism is practiced at its finest. Darwin is a melting pot for many time travellers that have simply lobbed on its doorstep, liked the place and its slow and easy going casual lifestyle and then have contributed to its diversity of lifestyles by putting their roots down in what is a unique place to live. Unlike the bulk of Australia, Darwin has just two seasons, and they are called the Wet and the Dry. That's because the months of November through to April are the months when it rains and the remaining period is when it doesn't.
                            Having an unusual climate and being in a remote part of the Continent means that some of the populace go a bit nutty, or as the locals prefer they go troppo. That just adds to the fun and provides a reason for a get together to enjoy a beer, which Territorians do better than anywhere else in Australia.
                            Having lived in Darwin for a few years, and in Gove for some 5 years, I'm looking forward to renewing acquaintances and meeting new friends. The trip will be a long road drive from Darwin to Katherine and then across to Nhulunbuy (Gove) in Arnhem Land. Until recently one could only do the trip by flying from Darwin to Gove airport, however the NT Government have now (almost) completed a road from Katherine to Nhulunbuy to service the expanding townships, aboriginal communities and mining ventures. I say almost as part of the new road is sealed and the balance is good old red coloured bulldust. Word is that the road has just been graded so hopefully it will be in a good condition when we arrive. Distance from Darwin to Gove is 1055 klms so the round trip will be some 2100 klms. It has taken us a little time to get all of the permits required as we pass through and end up in areas that are under the stewardship of Aboringinal communities.
                            That means there will be no further newsletters until I return in around 3 weeks and if none appear for more than a month then it means that I have either perished or have had to go into quarantine because of this rotten covid business.
                            Its been a funny week on the punt. Of the 30 bets to date, I have managed just 5 winners, 2 seconds, 5 thirds and the rest unplaced. The good news is that one of the winners paid $13 and another $9 so that softened the blow and whilst I did manage to lose it certainly wasn't as bad as it could have been.
                            Hopefully the week will finish on a high note.!!
                            The fields for Saturday look good, particularly in Brisbane where there are some excellent Group races.
                            The first race for the selections below will kick off at Randwick at 11.35am AEST or 2.35 am London time, and the final race will be run and won at Belmont at 18.55pm. AEST which converts to 9.55 am Saturday, London time.
                            Good luck with your investments and may you stay safe and well during my sojourn.
                            Here are the venues and early selections which will be added to amended etc etc when the scratchings and late mail arrive.
                            The races at Randwick have now been transferred to Rosehill as a result of the lockdowns that are around the city of Sydney. This means that patrons will have access to the racecourse; something that wouldn't have occurred if they had remained at Randwick, due to the proximity of the racecourse to the covid lockdown areas.
                            Todays late mail has arrived in parts. The first has been included below, the balance will be added shortly.

                            EAGLE FARM:

                            • Well so much for the long awaited trip into the Never Never. Of course just hours before the wife and I were to board our Qantas flight to Darwin good old covid struck the State of Queensland and we are now in day two of a three day lockdown here in Brisbane. (Lockdown has now been extended for 24 hours so there goes my freedom for another day!!) But the story is worse for our friends from here whom we had arranged to meet up in Darwin. They went a few days earlier and headed off for a quick trip to Kakadu and of course Murphy's Law came into play and they are now squatting at a campsite at Katherine (three hour drive from Darwin)unable to move and twiddling their thumbs wondering what to do next. The problem is that if they try and return to Queensland from Darwin then they will be forced into quarantine for 14 days which will cost them AUD $5,000 and a fortnight doing nothing more than watching television.
                              To add salt to injury we have now learnt that only around 60% of hospital employees here have been fully or partially vaccinated after a hospital receptionist went down with Covid and of course everyone asked Why?
                              The whole shebang is utter nonsense and I say that because our national death toll from Covid here in the past six months has been just 1. Yep one solitary person. That compares with around 1000 plus who have died from car accidents, 11,000 from cancer, 3000 from dementia and yet here we are panicking with border lockdowns and quarantine because a handful of persons have Covid. Just doesn't make any sense to me and I think its high noon for our Prime Minister to step up to the plate and call a halt to this absolute charade.
                              So not a happy Vegimite and no prizes for guessing I personally hate lockdowns.
                              On a brighter note my punting has taken a welcome upside in the past week with 45 bets so far resulting in 11 winners, 5 seconds, 5 thirds and the rest unplaced. Best winner paid $37.40 (bless its little heart!), whilst one other paid $17.40, one paid $15, another $9 and one paid $8, and the rest were smaller numbers. At least that was a ray of sunshine that emerged from the covid mist that surrounds us here and of course its small compensation for the loss of my much loved travel plans to the wilds of the Northern Territory.
                              Tomorrow I will update with Saturdays racing and then shortly afterwards with the tips and selections where the city venues have been ignored in South Australia and Queensland and their meetings have been shunted off to Murray Bridge and the Sunshine Coast. This week I will introduce a Late Mail category which will be for late tips that I receive from a reasonably reliable source and these generally arrive about two hours prior to the first race. Hopefully it will provide some longshot results which is a variation to the generally short priced selections that I usually post.
                              First race for the Saturday fields below will be run and won at Rosehill where the races commence at 11.00am AEST, which I think converts to 2.00am London Time. The last will be run and won at Belmont at 18.40 AEST, which converts to 9.40am London time.
                              I trust your week has not been as frustrating as mine and you are enjoying some of the freedoms that our forefathers fought for. Good luck on the punt and stay safe.
                              There is an interesting article here about Irish Bookmakers Paddy Power accepting a bet for 13000 pounds each way on a horse called Redemptive which won at $16/1 and then claiming the punter only wanted 1300 pounds each way on it after it duly saluted. Interesting to see how that one plays out.!! Please post your thoughts on here if you want to expand on this story.

                              • Hi Charles. I'm sorry to hear that your trip was postponed. Congrats on your results from last week. Very good odds

                                This is the story about the £26,000 bet?


                                If the bet hadn't been a winner, they would still have said it was a mistake? We all know the answer to that....
