Geez the ride by King Hughie in the 6 horse field in the first at Newcastle was not his finest  :/

I am watching the races with a few mates and just watched a race in Warwick.

Watch the ride on Rocky Nugget (race 4)  a drifting favourite who ended up starting around 5.50. The lack of vigour in the middle stages needs to be questioned plus the lack of vigour around the turn when there was a chance it could finish in the top 3.

I know it is an apprentice but advice given could be very beneficial to their progress.

Toowoomba Race 3. Drifting horses in the market and 1 of them Davor doubled its opening price too. Draws barrier 4 and finds itself almost 3 wide for the latter part of the race. Bad judgement on the part of the jockey for too much faith in the ability of the house.

Port Lincoln race 3 no 2. Drifted from $4 to $7. Usually a leader but due to fast pace was a few back and lack of vigour at times was noticeable.

2 Big odds on favs in Adelaide in Race 1 and 3, both trained by Tony McEvoy fail to fill a placing.

One of them draws barrier 4 and is 3 wide. No chance of winning but well beaten.

They mentioned on Sky that the stable foreman (? Tony's son) said that the first one (Coppergate $1.45 ran last) was showing signs of colic post race.

Punters who took the $1.45 probably have colic plus a few other things.....

Tony Brassel actually tipped the one that won the 3rd race. He's on fire. Tipped Sir Charles Road straight away after that.

Jeunes, " funny " is not what I would call it! The whole race has a stench about it. Watch the ride on "Irish Optimism " and tell me whether under the rules of racing it was given every opportunity to win the event. Come to think about it the whole day had the usual Queensland stench about it. Ex South Africans and ex Kiwis either missing the kick or travelling three and four deep . Anyway that seems to be  Racing in Queensland . I would suggest half the problem is that it is patrolled by coppers who really wouldn't have much of a clue which end you put the feed in , let alone about racing in general.

Viridine when questioned, H Bowman stated his intention was to ride the colt
conservatively, particularly as it has a tendency to race keenly in its races. He said
accordingly in the early stages he shifted in behind runners and travelled behind I Am Excited
and to the inside of Pariah. He added Viridine raced fiercely, refused to settle throughout the
early and middle stages and was continually restrained from the heels of I Am Excited. H
Bowman further stated that, whilst he observed Pariah travel three wide in advance of him and
that was a desirable position to obtain, he was unable to come back due to his mount's racing
manners and take up a position behind Pariah in the middle stages. He said, when Catchy
then improved to his outside, he was then badly held up on the heels of I Am Excited making
the home turn. He added on straightening his only option was to improve to the inside of I Am
Excited and, after securing that run soon after straightening, he became badly held up initially
on the heels of Booker. He said, once improving to that runner's inside, he again could not
test Viridine when Houtzen then commenced to give ground in advance of him and
consequently Viridine went to the finish without being tested.

Very poor ride IMO  from our acclaimed "best" jockey.

The best three jockeys I have seen are Moore , Higgins and Dittman.  Bowman is in the Group 2 or 3  category at best.

Agree that Bowman ride on Viridine was a shocker and full credit to Peter Moody on Ch7 for saying so. We need more blokes in the racing media prepared to give a big name a decent spray.
