The only way to win following any Jockey consistently is keep doubling up if you have enough money, but take no less than even money    :biggrin:  
They'll eventually ride a winner and you'll be in front then start again.

Mein Gott !  :wacko:

There is some punting wisdom on display here ! Not  !

That is a "nice" problem, Sporty, and unless you study every ride in detail, you can't distinguish between "out of form" and normal statistical variation. You would need a staff of video watchers skilled in assessing jockeys riding performance. Forget it !

And  following the pennies will see you reduced to pennies.


very easy to pick a bad ride max,very easy

Oliver is keen to add another premiership to his name however other priorities still exist.

"It's nice to be amongst the hunt once again for the jockeys' premiership."

"I'll have a crack now I'm there but in saying that I'll still go interstate and follow the carnivals and have a break during the winter as well."

From 305 rides, Oliver has racked up 57 wins in the metropolitan area with his nearest competitor Craig Williams sitting on 52 wins.

Oliver answers Waller's Canterbury call
Brad Waters
Monday, 11 May 2009


Champion Melbourne jockey Damien Oliver will head to Sydney on Tuesday to replace the suspended Corey Brown on three Chris Waller-trained horses.

Oliver will ride Sixtyfour, Altered Boy and First Look for Waller at Canterbury after an unexpected call to Oliver’s manager Mark Van Triet.

“It was a bit of surprise,” Van Triet said.

“But Damien was going to ride in trials here in Melbourne so he jumped at the chance to go and ride in races for Chris.”

Oliver will also ride Night Star for Bart Cummings and Bellevent for Joe Pride at Canterbury.

Waller and Oliver will also combine with Triple Honour in Saturday’s Group I Doomben Cup in an attempt to repeat their All-Aged Stakes win with Danleigh.

The dual Melbourne Cup-winning rider has three rides for Mick Price – Rightfully Yours, Borrack and Dorabelle - and will also ride Movie and Court for Sydney trainer Clarry Conners.

Damien Oliver showed why he is considered one of Australia's best jockeys after wining the first two races at Betfair Park this afternoon aboard Donna Rossa and Eau De Joie. 

Walking the track before the first race, Oliver was aware that the best part of the track was "8 metres plus" away from the rail.

Only Oliver hooked his mount wide at the top of the straight in a bid to find the best part of the track and reaped the benefits of his bold move on the line.

Donna Rossa ($2.50-$3.20-$2.70 eq fav) defeated Justsay Sumthink ($2.60-$2.70 eq fav) - for the second time in month - by a head to win the $30,000 Ripa 0-82 Mares Handicap (1600m).

"She's going great guns and they're run pretty true to form these two - there is little between them," Oliver said.

Donna Rossa won over 2100m at Betfair Park twelve months earlier and Oliver believes she hasn't lost her staying ability.

"It won't be a problem getting over more distance."

"She has won up to 2000m and she's quite versatile winning at seven furlongs and now to 2000m."

Oliver's second ride of the afternoon on Eau De Joie ($9-$10) in the Snitzel 0-72 3yo Handicap (1200m) was another textbook ride.

Setting on the rails in a six horse field, Oliver pinched inside runs to sneak up along the rails and win by a length and three-quarters.

"She was first-up today and there looked to be a bit of speed on in the race today," Oliver said.

"They did carve each other up infront so it did help us."

"There are definitely more wins in store for her," Oliver added.

Silver Bullion ($4) ran second Cascabel ($2.60 fav) lost no admirers finishing third, two lengths from the winner.

Oliver also took the time to throw his support behind the Jumps Racing industry which is nervously awaiting the decision from the RVL board at 3pm this afternoon.

"I'd like to put my support behind the jumping industry, it's a big part of our industry and those horses are really well looked after.

"They are much better cared for it there wasn't a jumps industry.

"I think those horses would be in more pain on their way to the slaughterhouse if we didn't have a jumps industry," Oliver said.

Oliver picks up Glam ride for Eagle Farm
Brad Waters
Monday, 15 June 2009


Champion jockey Damien Oliver returns from suspension on Wednesday and has picked up a strong book of rides to close out the Brisbane winter carnival at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Oliver will resume at Ballarat on Wednesday with two rides for Caulfield trainer Robert Smerdon, Norwegian in a two-year-old handicap and First Drinks in the 0-78 event for the mares.

Top Flemington trainer Danny O’Brien has called on Oliver’s services for three of his Eagle Farm runners including last year’s Winter Stakes winner Absolut Glam.

Michael Rodd rode Absolut Glam to an excellent fifth placing in the Stradbroke Handicap but Rodd has elected to honour a commitment to ride the Heath Conners-trained Davcon at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

Oliver has only had one previous ride on Absolut Glam, combining with the daughter of Snowland for a strong second behind Bellini Rose in the Group II Blazer Stakes at Flemington in the spring.

The champion hoop reunites with Ballack in the Group III Tattersall’s Cup (2200m) after missing the Brisbane Cup ride through suspension.

Ballack won the Chairman’s Handicap at Doomben at the only time Oliver has been aboard him.

Oliver will be aboard Keano for O’Brien in the Group III Healy Stakes and Dorabella for Mick Price in the Tattersall’s Open Mile at Group III level.

Key meetings loom for Oliver's title hopes
Brad Waters
Monday, 22 June 2009


This week looms as a crucial week for champion jockey Damien Oliver if he is to hold off the challenge of a fast-finishing Craig Williams in the Melbourne jockeys’ premiership race.

The pair is locked together on 63 wins after both jockeys rode in Brisbane at the weekend and Oliver needs to open a gap on Williams this week if he is to win his eighth title.

After Saturday’s Flemington meeting, Oliver will take a fortnight off and will be off the scene until the July 14 meeting at Sandown.

Oliver has three rides at Betfair Park Sandown on Wednesday, the debutant Now And Again for Mick Price and the Tasmanian visitors Tilda and Speedy Sky.

Price and Oliver will again combine at Saturday’s Flemington meeting with Penn State, a two-year-old colt by Exceed And Excel out of a half-sister to the dual Cox Plate winner Northerly.

The pair has combined for 12 city winners in Melbourne this season to be Oliver’s most successful partnership, including a Group I success with Gallica in the Thousand Guineas.

Oliver will replace Glen Boss on Starkron and Italian Machine and he will also be aboard Global Warming for Robert Smerdon and Rain In Africa for Caulfield trainer Colin Little.

C.Williams at $1.70 to win the Vic Metro jockey is stealing. No way Ollie can beat him.

Edit: Ollie should not beat him.
