I see Noel Callow, who has recently taken a sabbatical from riding, has got a gig on TvN. If he keeps selecting each favourite to win in his pre-race assessment his tenure at TvN could be in doubt. Why in heaven they need to employ an ex jockey to simply pick the favourite in each race is beyond me ?

I am aware that at these Moonee Valley night meetings TvN need someone to act as a "filler " between races but surely a cross over pre-race  to a bookie on course what be more beneficial to viewers.

He's obviously been exposed to too much of Gazza Harley on SKY.    :lol:    :lol:    :lol:

My personal favourites though, are the jockey retirees who lend their names to tipping services e.g. Simon Marshall, Brian York, Malcolm Johnston etc.   :bleh: :bleh: :bleh:

Yeah
 
When those ex jockeys were put to the test they were all a bit like Haley's Comet..
the build up was big, they came, they went quickly and were very disappointing.

I'd be surprised if they had, or wanted, any input into those damn "tips". Just took the money for giving an aura of credibility to it all with their " champion jockey" names. ........just excuse me....... :bleh: :bleh: :bleh:

Johnston did lose that damages case & York bowed out of riding due to injury. Marshall still puts his head on Channel Nine when they cover Carnival  races and even got a gig at the Bejing Olympics..amazing !!!!

Jockeys are not the best of judges generally, anyhow. Many have gone bust punting.

Brian York would still have  the first dollar he ever earned,especially with his  Kiwi/Scottish heritage.

Anyone know what he is doing now?

A good jockey Callow might be, but that does not automatically qualify him  as a tipster. Roy Higgins was a champion jockey but was replaced on Sport 927 by Dean Lester, a professional analyst.
In a racing sense, a jockey is a jockey, nothing more nothing less , just as Dean Lester is a racing analyst nothing more, nothing less

I think we are wise  looking elsewhere, rather than any type of tipster, for a winning edge

You have never said a truer word. Although Noel Callow has not picked the favourite in the next. Gone for Stanton..one of Lloyd William's horses.

You're right..... they should stick to their specialty. Bit like me trying to tell a woman how to put on her make-up.

I'll give you the tip about tips.......assemble as many as you can from the major media outlets, particularly SKY spruikers, and factor into your deliberations a horse having been widely tipped as a  NEGATIVE.  Particularly if your bet will be paid at tote odds. The other side of this coin, of course, is the better tote odds achieved about runners the media dogs are not barking.   ;)

Roy Higgins has more chance of being a tipster than Dean Lester has of being a Jockey   :lol:   :lol:   :lol:

Roy Higgins was my favourite jockey back in the day but if you want a laugh go and follow his picks he does at some MV meetings. Havent been for a few months but from the times I'd seen him before that, horrible lol.
