Cox Plate Day results
29 Oct 2012

A tough day overall but we managed to find 9 winners on the day coming home with a rush at Ascot with the last 3 winners in a row.

Overall 9 winners from 41 races, First fives 34/41 races, 15 trifectas and 7 first fours.

2 winners and 3 placings from our 5 specials did not result in any cash bonuses.

Not one of our better days unless you stuck to Ascot but our trifecta punters would have been happy.

Saturdays Specials
28 Oct 2012

Specials today are-

MR 3/3 Midnight Martini

MR 5/1 Its A Dundeel

AR 5/1 Justify That

PR 2/4 Bonny Zara

BR 1/1 Octane Flyer

Best of the day is Midnight Martini.

Best backed this morning are SR 4/6 Specific Choice and in Melbourne the money is coming for More Joyous in the plate.

Keep a very close eye on MR 7/6 Ambidexter. Darley announced during the week which horses they were taking overseas and Ambidexter was one of those named. You would think if they have such a high opinion of the horse he would be winning today in quite an open race. The favourite Solzhenitsyn has got the drifts and some money has come for the toppie in Rangirangdoo. Watch the market but I suspect the money will come for this horse.

Cox Plate looks a great race and a very interesting betting race. I'm staying with Green Moon and Craig Williams but have saved on More Joyous and Sincero (each way)

Early Thoughts for Saturday
27 Oct 2012

The Cox Plate is a battle between the 3YO and the hardened weight for age performers as we all know. Personally I don't believe the 3YO horses will make the grade as a couple of hard runs coming into the race may have taken the edge off them.  Green Moon is my top rater but I have specked a horse who is my best value bet in the race in Sincero. Last year the horse was asked too do too much in his preperation but this year he has had a well planned campaign that will see him at his peak for the big race. Obviously he will need luck in running but they all will. I can see a fair bit of pace on and from his barrier he should be able to stay out of trouble and have the last crack at them.

I have no doubt that Michael Rodd is one of the best G1 jockeys around and he will give him every chance. At odds of $31 he is a nice each way betting proposition.

Too say the horse may be a better miler could be true but his run to finish just behind Ocean Park who I have rated second makes him a value runner.

 

To Perth and and the hottest stable in the west of Stephen Rowe who has two runners in race 3 Your Buy and in race 6 Mythical Ceres. The trainer is very happy with both horses and may just get his first city double at Ascot.

Both horses are in good form and have worked well during the week against some top line horses in trackwork. Both races are very open but Stephen Rowe conditions his horses very well and I think they are both good each way chances. A double would not surprise!

 

Waterford Crystal Mile Moonee Valley Saturday
26 Oct 2012

Solzhenitsyn....... nice horse with untapped potential but can he be the first to complete the Toorak / Waterford Crystal Mile double ?

Goes from 52kgs under handicap conditions up to59kgs at WFA.

My suggestion is to go around him at this juncture and look to back better placed horses.

This year's Cox Plate features a superb crop of 3yo's, arguably the best since 1995.

The burning question remains their ability to cope with an arduous 2000m in a race that tests even the champions.

Pierro has done all that has been asked not withstanding his luckless last start 2nd where pilot error proved his undoing behind a gallant winner in All Too Hard who undoubtedly had a softer run but on the other hand may be even better suited at the longer trip.

Then we have the untapped Proisir who faces the task of rising from a maiden winner to the ultimate Group 1 over 2000m in a single preparation. Nevertheless an exciting prospect to say the least and one who was also stitched by an ordinary ride last start.

Which brings us to Gai's third contestant More Joyous who I declared the "lay of the year" in the Toorak. Despite Singo's deranged ramblings in respect of Gai's choice of barrier, this mare reads as easily the pick of the older brigade and in my view represents tremendous value. If she replicates her 2000m win at Randwick she'll get the cash and decisively so, as she holds without question the highest rating performance of any at the journey.

Best "roughie" for mine is Rekindled Interest who looks to have been targeted for this race and certainly reserves his best for this track.

To summarise, value is the key which makes Grey Moon a great LAY at the "unders" of $5

Good Punting !!!

Strong Backing
25 Oct 2012

Le Columbia who we had rated 4th at Strathalbyn in race 7 has been backed from 100/1 to 7/1

Sydney race 2 no 3 Catkins, Geelong race 6 no 1 Road Trippin and race 9 no 2 New York. Eagle Farm race 1 no 1 More Colours

Geelong Cup Tomorrow
24 Oct 2012
Have the internationas frightened off the Aussie Trainers. With only a field of 7 facing the starter tomorrow maybe so. Disappointing field for a race that has been a significant lead up event for recent Melbourne Cup winners
Last Saturdays Specials
24 Oct 2012
We had Mosheen as one of our specials last Saturday. Very easy to explain her poor run after hearing she has been retired. Fractured a hind tibea in the run!

Serious punters should note the under performance of Victorian horses during their Spring Carnival despite having an overwhelming percentage representation in races.

Again yesterday, the Raiders took the spoils with wins in 6 of the 10 events. giving credence to the theory that Victorian form is substandard to that of other domains.

This has been an ongoing pattern which more than likely will continue throughout the Carnival.

Tiger Tees on target for the Sallinger
23 Oct 2012

If you want to see an easy trial winner in action check out Rosehill trials on the 19th October 2012 in trial 7.

Tiger Tees who has been set for the Sallinger and is also entered for this Friday nights Manikato Stakes over 1200 at Moonee Valley had little trouble in a trial over 900m, winning by 4 lengths in a time of 55.30 and looks in peak condition for the race. The problem in the Manikato may be the ballot!

Sundays Specials
22 Oct 2012
Now I know Sundays is a day of prayer and I can tell you I was praying when Kardy hit the front in Bunbury race 8. It was the third leg of an all up treble and paid $12.40 a win. We combined two of our specials at Gosford into Kardy at odds of 100/1 and got the chocolates. I love Sundays. Check the results from our Gosford ratings today with 3 winners and plenty of tri's and first fours.
Saturday Review
22 Oct 2012

Too say launching our new website on Caulfield Cup day was a risk is very true and as the racing in Sydney and Melbourne evolved winners were difficult to find. We managed to find a couple in the last few races at Caulfield including the last in Mrs Onassis which was backed from 12's to $5.50.

Too say we were in "struggle street" early was also true but significantly we maintained our averages with good days in Brisbane, Adelaide and a flyer in Perth that kept our record intact.

From a specials perspective 3 of our 5 saluted the judge and in total we found 13 winners from 43 races at a percentage of 30%.

Our final numbers were 43 races, 13 winners, 29 first fives, 12 trifectas and 8 first fours.

The highlight was 3 in a row at Ascot in races 5 to 7 Global Flirt, Travinator (a special) into Miss Solis a $10 chance making it a very successful day.

Thanks to everyone who has subscribed and we will loook forward to the rest of the carnival.

On the Caulfield Cup, "the Eagle" was on the money with his best roughie Alcopop nearly causing a boilover and paying nicely for a place. No excuses for Glencadam Gold or Quest for Peace, they just weren't good enough but it should be noted that Dunedin's last 200m sectional was run at 12.05 at the end of 2400m compared to Howmuchdoyouloveme's 11.95 at 1100m in the Caulfield sprint.. Thats simply brilliant!

Hope you enjoyed the day and I would appreciate if you would refer your punting mates to our site

Todays ratings are up and running after scratchings have been declared. Register now and they are available on the site

Stephen Rowe Stable today
20 Oct 2012

Barnsley Lad is the only stable runner and it gets a start with the scratching of Benny's Halo. The horse ran a very nice race at its last start and is not without a chance in a race where half a dozen horses could win the race with luck in running.

Have something each way on the tote as it is way unders on the fixed betting at $13

Joe Pride Stable news
20 Oct 2012

Today at Randwick in race 7 City Tattersals Lightning Handicap has 2 Joe Pride runners in News Alert and Falzon participating. Both horses are in good form, working well and could run a cheeky race at longer odds.

There is a rule in place at this camp that if a Joe Pride horse stepped out at odds over 10/1 always have something on them on an each way basis. That is the case today with both horses starting from a very good barrier in a very open race.

Latest Caulfield Cup analysis
20 Oct 2012

Although I agree with the Eagle that the speed factor will be a major factor in this race and Voila Ici and Glencadam Gold will have the lead to themselves, My Quest for Peace from his very good barrier may just have the last crack at the leaders sitting just off the front runners.

Left alone in front with some easy sectionals and they wont catch Glencadam Gold but that rarely happens in a Caulfield Cup so the weight horse of the race My Quest for Peace is my top selection in the race. He has very good form at equal weights with Dunedin and has a 2 length advantage over that horse at todays weights.

Let's hope Corey Brown is on his game today as his form has been hot and cold of late

Whilst the Caulfield Cup is usually run at a frenetic early pace with widely drawn runners trying to establish good field position, this years Cup field appears to be devoid of "hot" speed pacemakers with only Voila Ici and Glencadam Gold appealing as logical leaders.

Consequently, their poor draws should be discounted when assessing their chances giving both undeniable prospects in an evenly run race.

Best Roughie may be Alcopop who, despite 8yo's  having a poor record in this event, appeals on the strength on a last start 2nd at WFA. He drops 6.5 kgs and is a winner course/distance beating subsequent Melbourne Cup winner Shocking.
