There are plenty who are willing and ready to "bag" Dom Beirne when his tips in the Melbourne Cup don't finish in order. The problem is he's just way ahead of most of us, and certainly a lot smarter than yours truly.
Sport Nat's form session on Friday last will be available on podcast.
Definitely worth a listen. He nailed many winners - in one hit.
But something that should be mentioned is his summation of the Oakleigh Plate (as a guide to the Newmarket).
He gives a rating to each running of the Plate, and he made the point that this year's was the fourth highest in his bank of ratings.
Dom then continued to tell us that the only winning chances on form in the Newmarket were LR and Samaready.
As an aside he told us that in those other three higher-rated Plates, the quinella in the Plate was also the quinella in the Newmarket.
This year, not only did the quinella get replicated, but the trifecta did, also.
And some people PAY for tips.
