Winner in race 6 and a nice tip in race 7 Ledger (20-1 2nd beaten 1.6L).   emthup

For the Jungle Juice Cup at Cessnock today, O'Crikey looks tossed in with 5.5kg above the limit and barrier 6. Nothing else has form that approaches his. $2.90 on fixed odds looks inviting. Mt Vesuvius and Afforestation for the exotics.

Stablemate Surge Draw in race 7 looks hard to hold out.

I thought Canny Finch first up in the dash over 900m in race 5 would be hard to hold out, but then looked at the weight (64 kg!). #6 in that race, Dark Avenue, has a 3/1/1/0 record, but is resuming after a 3 year spell!! Co-incidentally, his last start he ran 2nd to Ballymorough (#2). Might settle on Grey Thunder, #12 with a 10 kg pull in the weights over the toppie.

Parlaying these up today  at Muswellbrook - Dead Track listed.

R4 #1 Leicester Square
R5 #10 Penteli
R7 #10 Vitasol
R8 #2 Platinum Choice

Leicester Square ran in an innocuous 5 horse 3yo race back on the 20th Feb at Rosehill over 1500m.

Winner Rock Classic went on to win the G1 Australian Guineas. LC ran 4th and won 1st up last start. 5th horse Samui Lad won first up last week at Wyong. 2nd horse Shadow Minister hasn't gone too badly either.

Would have been an interesting match up mate but they were in different races   :lol:

Hope you had something on each way   emthup

Had a funny day. 2nd bet of the day, jag 27% of the 5th race trifecta then proceeded to get zilch for the rest of the day. Had Daily Dubs running at Ipswich - Rim Of Fire desparately unlucky, and Gundagai - Grand Rhumba - now I don't know if anyone watched that race, but is a good instruction in why you should be careful backing 4 kg claiming apprentices. Poor young fella couldn't handle the horse and it goes down by a lip.

Port is a very narrow track, especially when the rail is out 2m. Note to self: Barriers, barriers, barriers at Port.

In the aforementioned Race 5, there were 5 female apprentices riding in the race and they filled the first 5 placings over the line in a field of 14. Must be some sort of record  :thumbsup:

Girls have a much better record than there numbers suggest they should, they are on average better riders than the boys, the main reason I believe is they know their limitations and rarely need to Waste as hard as the boys so in fact are stronger and they don't move around on a horse as much as boys tend to when inexperienced, not comparing them with the Rawillers/Oliver/Brown etc though Lindop, O'hara, Payne etc can hold their own against anyone

Possible World Record At Dubbo Races On Monday

  Story By Mark Brassel     

Tuesday, 21 December 2010

: In what could be a world first, runners competing in the final race at Dubbo yesterday finished in racebook order – all nine of them.

TAB sportsbetClick here to visit TAB Sportsbet Web Site

The seventh race (Denise's Bra & Lingerie Class 3 Handicap, 1600m) was taken out by Miss Reed ($5.50), who downed the favourite Hinterland ($1.80) by a neck.

The remaining runners then came past the post in handicapping (or racebook) order.

"What would be the odds about this happening?" said racecaller & journalist, Colin Hodges.

"It defies belief that nine horses could go around in a 1600-metre race and finish exactly as the handicapper 'intended'. I've seen a couple of five and six-horse fields finish in order, but never a nine-horse field."

The complete finishing order was:-

1st-No.1 Miss Reed (Greg Ryan, $5.50)
2nd-No.2 Hinterland (Kody Nestor, $1.80)
3rd-No.3 Flash Academy (Kacie Chater, $13)
4th-No.4 Happy Henry (Tiffany Jeffries, $8)
5th-No.5 Tompeppa (Justin Stanley, $12)
6th-No.6 Ornithology (Dar Lunn, $17)
7th-No.7 Seatune (Jeff Kehoe, $21)
8th-No.8 Grand Chime (James Geppert, $17)
9th-No.9 Roughshot (Ken Dunbar, $13)

NSW TAB: Quinella (1-2)-$3.80. Exacta (1-2): $16.30. Trifecta (1-2-3): $49.10. First 4 (1-2-3-4): $185.40.

Will give Russwillcrow one more chance at Wagga R8 today. Was disappointing last start after being unlucky two runs back.

Voice Commander is double digit odds in race 7 at the moment, and appeals each way.

R3 #11 Mettaya has ordinary form, but they all do in that race. Was unlucky last start (see race report) and is over 20-1, so worth a small each way wager.

Rado Boljun's best could be Kiss My Fuji in race 4.

Good luck if you're having a quaddie at Scone today. Looks a tough one.

The #3 Oakfield Sands looks very strong in the first leg, so might stand him out and keep fingers crossed. #13 is not hopeless.

#1, #2, #3 and #4 in the second leg

3rd leg, Paul Messara's lightly raced Zabeel mare, #3 Zabelka, is first up over the 1300m and has very good form.  1, 5, 7 and 10 go in. Sue Grills has #10 Idle Joker who must be some sort of chance.

Last race....God help us.  :what: You tend to want to instantly dismiss #4 Moody Avenue with it's 0x0x form, until you realize one of those 0's was in the Chelmsford! I don't do this often but I'm going to take "The Field".

Good luck if you're having a punt.

Newcastle Meeting Planned To Relieve Burden On Northern Rivers
Racing NSW has added a race meeting to be staged at Broadmeadow Racecourse (Newcastle) on Tuesday, 11 January 2011 with the fields to be drawn from the Coffs Harbour and Ballina race meetings.

The meeting has been organised as both the Coffs Harbour and Ballina race meetings scheduled for Sunday (9 January) and Tuesday (11 January) appear very unlikely to proceed due to prolonged and heavy rain, in addition to recent losses of racing in the Northern Rivers.

The programme will be a hybrid of the two meetings with the races to be as close as possible as those presently programmed. As an added incentive to participants, the prizemoney for the meeting will be a minimum of $15,000 and the programme is as follows:-

Open Handicap - 1200m
Benchmark 65 Handicap - 1300m ($20,000)
Benchmark 60 Handicap - 1850m
Benchmark 50 Handicap - 1300m
Class 3 Handicap - 900m
Class 2 Handicap - 1300m
Class 1 Handicap - 1400m
Maiden Plate - 1300m
Maiden Plate - 1200m
Maiden Plate - 900m

Horses accepting at the Coffs Harbour and Ballina meetings have been automatically nominated for races with conditions similar to those for which they originally accepted at these meetings. The nominations for this Newcastle meeting can now be viewed by clicking on the following link - Noms for Newcastle (Tuesday, 11 Jan 2011) - (weights will be available later today).

Acceptances will close at 9am on Monday (Note: Trainers who had accepted for Coffs Harbour & Ballina must re-accept with RISA for Newcastle).

Given the uniqueness of the situation, travel rebates of $300 per horse will apply in addition to the appearance fee.
Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V’landys, paid tribute to Coffs Harbour Race Club Vice-President, Michael O’Neill, for the concept of the new race meeting which was conceived following discussions with Racing NSW.

“During this prolonged period of wet weather on the North Coast it is important that participants are provided racing opportunities and I thank Mr O’Neill for this innovative solution” Mr V’landys remarked.

Racing NSW also wishes to thank Newcastle Jockey Club for their co-operative approach to staging the meeting at short notice.




How good is this idea Racing NSW should be applauded :clap2:

TUMBLE TURN Redoute's Choice x Freestyle


Very interested to see how this one goes today doubt itll be a betting proposition but it's bred for better things

One to Watch
Tara Madgwick - Thursday, 27 January 2011
Looking a class above the average country juvenile winner is this daughter of champion sire Redoute’s Choice, who thrashed her rivals to win easily on debut at Scone on Thursday.

The Paul Messara trained Tumble Turn gave her rivals no hope as she surged clear to win the 1100 metre dash by close to five lengths as a raging hot favourite.

Tumble Turn (pictured as a yearling) was retained to race by Arrowfield Stud and partners after she passed in shy of her $400,000 reserve at Magic Millions and is the second winner from the former smart juvenile Freestyle, who won the Group II SAJC Breeders Stakes.

Freestyle has a Flying Spur filly entered for the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, produced another colt by Flying Spur last spring and is now in foal to Arrowfield young gun All American.
 

Tumble Turn is the second juvenile winner for Redoute's Choice this season joining Glissade.

Haven't ventured to the country or prov tracks for a while (with the exception of my brothers horse) but think Whisperossa in race 3 Newccastle will be hard to beat although you'll be luck at get evens.

Scratched in Sydney to run in this.

The Waterhouse stable has taken a few up today. Best could be R5 #2 Avec Mon Ami first up.

Couldn't back anything with Mark Newnham on it, if Newnham wins on anything at the provincials it is well up to city Saturday class, while I do think AMA is probably the best horse in the race I doubt Avec Mon Ami has any pretensions to city class so I would prefer to lay it than back it,
 I reckon her best is Shekels of Gold, with her other one in that race the danger, Tukso

Looking at a couple of Messaras, do his tend to come up under at Scone?

R2 - GLARE

I reckon if you could get 3.5+ for either or both you'd be getting a decent price.

R4 N1 is also a messara runner and looks hard to beat but again price will be the worry.

Have R4 (Ron Martin Maiden) #2 Komodo Blue and R6 #2 Metric Mile marked out for a parlay with PB.

Eclair Surprise is given a chance in the G1 Aust Guineas today. If you look at the form of Newcastle R4 #1 Shadowofexcellence you'll see it ran 3rd to that horse in the Listed UCI stakes in the Spring. Performed OK against dual city winner Maule's Creek last start. Form seems to be many lengths over the other maidens, and the 1850m suits. A 3yo carrying 5 kg above the limit and the barrier stop it short of being "declared". Bart's lightly raced horse #3 Excelsis Deo is by Golan (sire of Kibbutz and Castle Heights) and has some form - goes into exotics. #4 Galilean Moon is out of a Zabeel mare and having only it's 2nd start for Waller - being placed at it's first start.

Youthful Jack is owned by Ross Stitt and always has been as far as I know. He felt whilst the horse was in such dazzling form he should be trained in the city and given his best shot at super stardom. He trained him early, Gave him to Rex Lipp for his Brisbane 2yo campaign, Took him back for his early 3yo campaign and than Allan Denham took over for the rest of his career.

The wheels have fallen off the Denham bandwagon since old Jack passed away, quite a few of his horses have failed to regain their previous consistent form, Yorke has always made more money out of his float business than he did out of training horses, as well as other periphery expenses linked to training, like laser, chiro etc

Last at Muswellbrook, watch out for the toppie Lifeboat. 3rd run back from a spell he has the far superior form in the race. The $12 fixed at the moment appeals as he is less than $7 on the tote.

Bet 1: each way Race 5 #16 Chief Kicking Bear - wins and pays $19 on the tote (SP $7)
Bet 2: each way Race 6 #13 Sonaceequal - wins and pays $22 on the tote (SP $11)

Race 7 at Kembla has a lot of experienced runners but might have a little on the baby of the race #10 Black Sparta. Will carry only 51 kg and has drawn barrier 1 (although will that be an advantage on the Slow 7?). Some nice runs in last 4 starts.

Gai has 3 runners, best looking like the speedy R2 #1 Nobby Snip (by Snippetson). Tommy Berry is in a purple patch and gets the ride. #8 That's How goes from a wide barrier but improved at its 3rd start to be beaten 2.8L by Invest, a runner up to Karuta Queen at its only other start. #7 Rosewall has done nothing in trials, but is a Redoute's out of a Zabeel mare having it's first start. The trial form of #5 Golden Dagger is OK and Payne goes well with 2yo's.

The Race 2 quinella didn't pay much and Black Sparta ran 4th  :rant:

Today at Gosford on a Slow 6 I'm going for #1 Judicial in the last. Has been switched from Gai to Matthew Smith. Has a 3:2-0-0 first up record, and has had two city trials in preparation for this, 3rd then 1st in the latest trial. Very confident of him running a place, so we will double the win stake in the place box. Carries 5 above the limit, but once you get down past number 4 the form really trails off. #2 Lifou and #4 Preparation, both first up, into a box quinella.

R2 RIALIO well bred 3yo from Gerald Ryan's yard trialled really nice last prep but was put away, comes into this race without a public trial but I saw enough in the original trial 20 odd weeks ago to suggest it can take this race out tomorrow.

Tevez if you don't mind a little constructive criticism, to say you should stick to "not backing horses first up" sounds like an emotive response to backing a loser, whether you back horses first up or not is not the point, it doesn't matter what you do you will back winners/losers just don't change what you do based on one loser, that is a mistake that causes most punters anguish, consistency(and reasonable selection method) is what will stand you in good stead in the long run, if you keep changing your methods you give Murphy the chance to screw with your mind, the point is have rules and for the most part stick with what works for you,
Title: Country NSW
Post by: Tevez17 on 2011-May-26, 06:48 PM
Your right in what you are saying but is the other way mate, I've not been backing first up horses for the last few months (unless they only have fresh form or I've got a bit of mail) & it's cut my loss ratio massively, I went away from it today because I really liked the trials of the 2 I mentioned above which was silly,

I think it's comes down to the fact that I'm a far better judge of a run than I am a form student if that makes sense so it's smarter for me to watch them go around atleast once.

I'm a big trial watcher so it can be difficult to let them go around first up especially when there are decent odds about, KING AMONG KINGS & PERFECT SILHOUETTE were both good Blackbooker runs into 4th
Title: Country NSW
Post by: Jim Pike on 2011-May-26, 06:56 PM
OK that is all I was saying, doesn't mean your rules should be written on a tablet of stone, you have to also be a little flexible, if you see one trial well and it is a big price then there is nothing wrong with diverting from your set of rules occasionally don't let one defeat change that

Tev, I'm backing one today that is first up in the Beef Week Cup at Casino, and it hasn't even got a good first up record  :(

#2 Long Journey Home makes a trek up from Port to run in this race which is open class, but many of the runners appear to be sub open class. 1st up over 1400m would suggest the stable has a horse in forward condition - at least we hope so.

They still have Miss Beef Week, but it is now called Beef Week Queen.

The original Coota Cup field has Trescorpioni as the toppie with 60 kg. Has been scratched.

That means that #2 Clever Hans gets in with 1.5 kg above the limit. I'm sure if the handicapper was weighting them in the absence of the topweight, CH would have to concede a bit more weight to most of these. Similar arguments make a case for #3 Granite Bluff (54.5 kg). All other horses are on the limit.

#2 Ravna Gora will be hard to beat from Barrier 4.  #1 Beyond Expectation deserves similar consideration. One at huge odds is #11 King Of Hearts - watch out for this bloke. Drops heaps in weight at his 4th run back. Josh Adams is riding it.

Host Of Queenslanders Attracted To Lismore Races (Today)

The steady stream of Queensland trainers coming across the border to race horses on NSW tracks is tipped to become a flood when new prizemoney levels are announced by Racing NSW this week.

Today’s nine-race Lismore meeting has attracted horses from 26 Qld stables including three from the stable of leading Gold Coast trainer Maryann Brosnan while Eagle Farm trainer Steve O’Dea has accepted with seven runners.

Stefan Jokic and Larry Maudsley will have four runners each while Harry Reed is making the trip from the Sunshine Coast with three.
Brosnan said Queensland trainers would be watching closely to see just how big the prizemoney increases for country NSW will be.

“It is going to be exciting times for racing in New South Wales and particularly on the Northern Rivers,” Brosnan said. “We have heard it could be as much as $20,000 a race and if that happens you can be sure a lot more Queensland trainers will want to race on your tracks.

“You will probably find that the bigger stables will be sending better quality horses because owners will want to race for that sort of prizemoney.”

Racenet report that the CEO of Grafton was sacked yesterday:

Grafton sack CEO after disappointing carnival

 The fallout from a below par Grafton July racing carnival continued on Thursday when the Clarence River Jockey Club sacked their embattled CEO.
 Bradley de Martino Rosaroll was terminated from his job after the CRJC board acted on a no-confidence vote at a board meeting on Wednesday.
 
The crowds during the carnival and a lack of industry participation were believed to be two of the reasons for the change at the Northern Rivers race club. One of Grafton’s biggest Sydney supporters Con Karakatsanis publicly slammed the club for his treatment over the past few weeks.
 
"We have probably been focusing on the wrong strategies in recent times and the board felt it would be in the interest of both parties to move on," CRJC chairman Graeme Green told the Daily Examiner.
 
"We were disappointed in a number of aspects of this year's carnival - not that Brad was entirely to blame for that."
 
The 2013 Grafton July racing Carnival will host the 100th running of the Grafton Cup and the change is seen as the first step towards building Grafton back to one of Australia’s great country racing festivals.

I think these can win today:

Newcastle

R1 #4 Harpers - lightly raced Darley horse who comes into this maiden with some fair Melbourne form. Weak race although #3 should go like the clappers.
R3 #1 Fortunefivehundred - ran 5th in the Carbine Club at Randwick. Looks "tossed in" in the maiden with 59 and a 57.5 limit.
R7 #7 Two Blue - a harder race but this might be the up and comer. Quinella with #2

Ballina

R1 #1 - Who's That Dragon - appeals at the current $5.70 on the tote. One start for a 4th. Some of the form in this race is very weak.

Goulburn Cup day. Would be a nice day down there although I suspect a bit hot.

Very tough race the Cup. Maximus Gladiator was scratched from his proposed first up run and he resumes here. A lot hinges on his fitness.

He came to hand quickly last campaign.

A win over Reuben Percival and a 3rd to the same horse in good quality races at the end of last campaign gives him the class edge in this given several good performances by RP in Melbourne. In on the limit weight which seems a bit of a gift from the handicapper.  :what:

$6.50 fixed odds.

Similar questions could be asked of toppie Kinnersley. With horses like Ginga Dude, Shenzou Steeds and Western Symbol in the formlines he would be hard to beat at his best - handicapper has given him 59kg and Tommy Berry to ride. $14.00 fixed odds.

Thursday December 13th 2012

We've had a bit of time to do some form guide study whilst laid up. Prices/scratchings not covered here.

Goulburn Race 1

#3 King Of The Forest - 4th run back . Was racing in VRC St Leger last campaign. This looks ideal.

Goulburn Race 2

#3 Di Monza. Darley off-cast having 4th run for new stable and well placed here. Vatican & Green Beret in the formlines.
#9 Matignon. Darley horse with Guy Walter. Good city form.
#6 Moorings Siren having 5th start and never out of a place. Won it's maiden by 8 lengths two starts back.

Goulburn Race 3

Lot of unraced horses. Interest only. #1 Splash Out is bred to win either a Newmarket or a Slipper and did win it's only trial in town.

Goulburn Race 4

#10 Wayward Snip won an 800m trial at Warwick Farm. Look a big strong horse but has to go an extra 400m here  - often a worry for the breed.

http://bigpondvideo.com/Horse_Racing/506889

#4 Macarthur Park ran into a couple of good ones on debut

#1 Hittite Warrior - those form lines have held up a bit from it's only two starts.

Goulburn Race 5

If Macarthur Park goes OK in the 4th then #1 Pillow Talk should go well in this. 4/1-1-1 record for the local Walter stable.

Confident winner will come from top 3 with #2 Rungrado running 3rd in the same race as Pillow Talk (2nd) last start. #3 Hail To Tara finished 9th at it's first start the has finished no further back than 5th at all 9 other starts. A must for trifectas. Don't go any further than #5 for exotics.

Goulburn Race 6

To complete the Macarthur Park/Pillow Talk/Rungrado form line up crops #4 Canny Ballard in this BM60 who beats all those. Has had only 4 starts (2-1-0). Looks good placement actually because you can put a line through a lot of these. If #7 Foragrand can improve fitness (3rd run back from a 412 day spell showed some pace last start) might be alue. #8 Keltoi actually ran 3rd to Cantonese two starts back albeit 10 lengths in arrears!

Banking on the #4. Looking for value closer to race time in among 1,2,3,5,6,7,8,10 for exotics.

Goulburn Race 7

BM65 - no real "up and comers". Pass. If needing some for quaddies:

#3 Triple Oh - stable in good form and races well this class.
#4 L'Acaadmie De Joie is a well performed half to Faulconbridge
#10 God's Reward never runs a bad race

Goulburn Race 8

#3 Eightsome might bookend the meeting for Walter here.

Parlay

R1 #3
R5 #1

Scone Race 1

#1 No One Listens - fair debut and is in a weak maiden here. Well bred Messara horse.

Scone Race 2

#1 Hot Diggity has had only 4 starts in 19 months but the 4/3-1-0 record speaks for itself. Should be winning if anywhere near fit. Healthy respect for the other Dubleo horse #2 Slumdogmillionire.

Scone Race 3

The toppie is out which means all unraced except for the bottom one and you wouldn't want to hang your hat there.

No tip

Scone Race 4

On the surface you think this is a difficult maiden then something strikes you in the breeding about #6 Silla Regalis - 2 starts for two placings.

It is a Redoutes half to the great Slient Witness and also G2 winner Sister Madly. Looks to have the form to win this to boot.

#5 Give Me More is an unraced More Than Ready half to a stakes winner - owned by Gerry Harvey. A couple of trials were unremarkable.

Scone Race 5

The toppie #1 Leicester Square has by far and away the best form so is 5 kg above the limit a leveller for him?

I think #4 Lotseventy with 55.5 kg might press him.

#6, #7 and #8 have shown enough in town to be included in any quaddies.

Scone Race 6

Below #2 they have really poor strike rates so We'll take a gamble that the handicapper hasn't assigned enough to #1 Chip 'N Chase (59.5) and #2 Sharbougg (59.5) - not much confidence.

Scone Race 7


#10 Ergo to beat #12 Shocking Behaviour - once again, not much confidence there.

Scone Race 8

A lottery. Look for value close to race time.You could find a reason to back any of 'em!

Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2012-Dec-17, 06:36 AM
Dubbo and Port today.

Dubbo R1 #4 Pelorus resumes and his best form will see this lot off easily you'd think. Messara stable.
Dubbo R3 #4 Beuazel - lightly raced with the best stats of any runner. Well drawn and a 2 kg claim Sue Grills horse looks hard to beat.
Dubbo R5 #1 Studio Star - will carry 58.5 after the claim. 4th to Adebisi at Eagle Farm (beaten 4.7L) two starts back puts him way ahead of the pack here.

Couldn't really see anything at Port that stands out. Big fields on the tight narrow track - expect a few to arrive at good odds. Should be the #1 contender for a new track in country NSW IMHO.

Used to be a time where I would attend the Walcha Cup meeting every year. Sadly not so this year.

Clever Hans gets some relief with a 3kg claim and has by far and away the best form in the race. Should be able to place. Might put the Bennett horse Master Of Darkness in the mix. Has poor form in the city, but with horses like Rowie and Guderian in the formline might appreciate the trip up to the tablelands. Only carries 52 kg.
Title: Country NSW
Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2014-May-06, 10:15 AM
Having a look at Newcastle today and is an interesting meeting so will be investing some. My notes.....

Race 1

If there is a bigger certainty in Australia today more than #7 Panthress please share it with us. Not expecting anything over $1.50.

Race 2

I'm going to disagree with DFS ratings and say that either the #2 Maximum Merritt or the #3 Boris Badenov will not miss the start and frank the city form over the provincial form. Some of the others have been closer in weaker races but they've had plenty of chances in this grade.

(Boris Badenov was the Eastern European baddie in Rocky and Bullwinkle and him and his sidekick Natasha would refer to the duo - in a thick accent - as "Moose and Squirrel" - what a great show that was).

Race 3

Forget the #5, and I reckon every other horse has a chance. #2 Resurrect will carry 57.5 kg but might continue the good run of the Asprey stable.

Race 4

Now this is an interesting race over the 1850m.

Bart has a Street Sense having it's third start #4 Street Tycoon and the distance will suit.

Is out of a G1 winning mare Old Money who won the WA Derby and Oaks, and the Cox Stakes from only 11 starts. Has had no luck at stud and this is the first one to race for the 16yo mare. Couldn't be in better hands.

There is a WA theme to this race because Waller's horse #6 Midnight Dancer is out of a Belmont Oaks/Guineas winner Lady Fidelia. Lightly raced and placed first up.

Guy Walter's horse #8 Briars Ballad is a full sister to good country horse Canny Ballad and has been thereabouts in a 6 start career.

#12 Mary Lou was placed at Kensington last start behind a "forum horse" in Asadauskaite - which is pretty good form for this I reckon.

Box Tri (in preferred order) 12 - 4 - 6 - 8

(if you get a chance check out the form on #5 Latin Treasure. Is by Exceed And Excel out of a stakes winning mare and has beaten 1 horse home in an extremely poor 5 start career. Cost $180,000 at the 2011 Easter sales).

Race 5

Gai's horse #6 Clarence View looks a good bet in this race. Comes out of the aforementioned Asadauskaite race and not much has shown up. Dam is a half to former good mare Chlorophyll.

Trifecta 6 standout from 1, 5, 7 and 8

Race 6

Hard to go past 1, 2, 3 and 6 - slight leaning toward #1 Roving Red but has to carry 5.5 over the limit.

Race 7

Anything could win this. Will wait for post time and might take some big odds ones. Interesting runners include #1 Sensing resuming with the "it" jockey James McDonald on board. #2 Napayshini was only beaten 4.5 L by Va Pensiero in the G3 Run To The Rose last August, only 4 starts ago. Won a recent trial. #9 Super Mover was only beaten 3.5 L by subsequent VRC St Leger winner Order Of The Sun last start. Resuming but has OK form over the shorter distances. Paul Snowden's horse #12 Truly Ready has pretty good form for this - placed at Randwick last start in a small field.

Box Tri 1-2-9-12

Good luck if you are having a punt today!

Knocked off work late tonight and just had a look at the form. A few I like at Gosford (Thursday).

Race 1 #1 Olympic Academy from the Walter stable looks in light with 4 kg above the limit. Strong form around it - horse it ran 2nd to two starts ago subsequently won and ran 2nd in BM 55's. Nothing else in the race approaches that. Blinkers go on for the first time and it steps up to the mile. Dam is a half to Court's In Session who won a Ryder.

Race 3 #9 Supreme Joy has strong city form and I checked the subsequent runs of those finishing around it and they have all gone really well. You can chuck out most of the field and this looks like a good thing in the Maiden first up - won a WF barrier trial on the 28th. Quinella with stablemate #3 De Starsandcircles. Those two have far more prizemoney from 12 starts than the rest of the field combined.

Race 7. There is some strong form in the race. The one that interests me is #4 Patinage from the Farley stable who had a winner at Newcastle on Tuesday. Is first up. First up last time won it's maiden at M'brook by 6.5 lengths and then it's next two. Finished the campaign beaten 4.5 L by Sweet Idea in a Stakes race at Wyong. If it can run up to that form will be hard to beat in the BM 65. #12 Splash Out won it's only start easily at Goulburn and is out of a Tea Rose winner (Prisoner Of Love - who is a half to Stakes winners Hoystar, King Of Prussia and old Sportsman - remember him?). Throw in the 2, 8 and 10 for exotics.

Race 8 there is a very interesting runner in #3 Hey Shazam. Looking at the 2013 trial form might have been a cast off from a big city stable. Has won at it's 3rd and 4th starts very impressively for local trainer Carmen Murnane and is stepping up to 2100m. Is by New Approach out of Mary Marvel. Mary Marvel is a daughter of Joie Denise which makes the dam of Hey Shazam a half to Tuesday Joy and Sunday Joy - is this an ex Singo horse? There are plenty of other bluebloods in the family as well.

In fact I think you can pick this race off. Gwenda's horse #2 And God Said Yes looks the main danger. Chuck out the bottom three - they are hopeless. That leaves you with 1, 4, 5 and 6 for the remaining places in the first four - easy   :biggrin:

The other races too tough to work out. Good luck if you are having a wager.  :beer:

First up last time won it's maiden at M'brook by 6.5 lengths and then it's next two. Finished the campaign beaten 4.5 L by Sweet Idea in a Stakes race at Wyong. If it can run up to that form will be hard to beat in the BM 65. #12 Splash Out won it's only start easily at Goulburn and is out of a Tea Rose winner (Prisoner Of Love - who is a half to Stakes winners Hoystar, King Of Prussia and old Sportsman - remember him?). Throw in the 2, 8 and 10 for exotics.


Well at least we had two winners here.

First one was about $1.50 - fell in.

Second one went down as a $1.55 favourite  :shy:

At least Patinage returned a nice $5.30 dividend. With the scratching of Splash Out we got a $16 quinella.

The odds on pop that got rolled (Supreme Joy) was beaten by a smokey of Kris Lees. First up after 254 days was previously with another stable and had form that wasn't hopeless. Big sweeping run down the outside obviously has improved. First two streeted the rest.

Not too bad an effort PP.

Had I been following you (instead of tasting a selection of fine red wines) I would have had:

Winner of the first; paid $1.80 up here. 8-)

Sat out the 3rd; $1.38 here was too short to have a bet.  :)

Winner of the 7th; paid $5.50 up here. :no1:
Plus the quinella @ $17.70.

Blow out in the 8th. :tears:

Not too shabby; :beer:

BETTER IDEA has now had 5 starts for 2 wins and a third.

Won by nearly a length at Wagga over 1200 ($21) on 2nd May 55.5kg (cd 54.5) in a class 1.
TOMORROW16th May steps up to 1300 in a Class 2 H'cap 54kg (has a 3kg claim to drop to 51kg)) at the Scone Cup meeting,

Regular winning jockey Koby Jennings is (significantly) not aboard, so read into that what you will.

Has now won over 1400m (1.3L Sapphire 59kg cd 57.0 $8)) and 1200m on Good rated tracks.

Thanks to DD for the initial heads up, on this smart 3yo gelding. (Did not race as a 2yo)

Don't leave out of exotics. I see smart Brizzie filly NICKED AND COURT is right in this too.

Ran 9th of 16 from barrier 15 @ $31. beaten 2.2L
Nicked and Court ran Fav $4.40 ... finished 5th ... beaten a length.

There's hope for these two.

Follow: STING
Ran a good race at odds - $19 - first up from a spell ... beaten 0.4L
7th at the 800m ... closing at the end.

The winner - TAIL RISK - is very smart - 4 from 5 now - so far up to 1300m Class 2.
Can win on all types of going - won first and second races on Dead then Heavy, by 2.3 L each.

Black-booked both Sting and Tail Risk for more good medicine!

Today BETTER IDEA Canterbury R2 faces his biggest test to date.

Had the impression he would do better over ground  (won over 1400m) but could be wrong.

He won Wagga 1200 (1st of 14) 2nd May $21. (Sectional 600 35.04)

This is more serious class, and he is priced accordingly $17.00/$4.00

Weighted on the limit in a "no metro wins" event with BOBS $10k bonus eligibility.

$4 the drum is worth a sample - won 4 of 8 starts.

************************************************

And tomorrow ... black-booker STING Wyong R5 will be sacked if he can't place in this field.

A good horse to watch if you like 4ths!

I reckon a horse has to deserve loyalty, and with a win and a 2nd from 10 starts, he's a pretty ordinary camel.

This is a last-ditch interest from me ... and is likely to start on first or second line of betting.

Why was sting in your black book mate ?
2 starts back (first up again) it was looking much better as a lightly-raced steed, Wily.

From 11 starts it had :
Won: once
Second: once
Third: once
Fourth: four ... and now 6 x 4ths from 13 starts.

Coming back from a spell, I reasoned it "should" fire in three starts if any good.
But noooo ... 2 more fourths.

The thing is great if you're into first fours, but just a receptical for hope if you want it to win another race.

That's why it can go into the desert with the camels as far as I am concerned after tomorrow.
It mustn't have earned its purchase price, at career earnings of $43,685.
But with sub 36 sectionals, it's not without ability.

I just don't think it has the ticker to take on the leaders and stay there.
Better pickings around ... I reckon even SNIP ME could beat it  ;)

Racing NSW Country’s Greg Delaforce slams Baird government’s ‘unfair’ taxing of racing industry

AN influential country racing official has accused the Baird government of “plundering’’ the industry with unfair taxes, threatening thousands of regional jobs.

Port Macquarie Race Club president Greg Delaforce called on Nationals leader and Deputy Premier Andrew Stoner to “start standing up” for regional communities or see his MPs “chucked out” at the March election.

“Racing has always stayed out of politics but we’ve got to stand up or there won’t be much left,’’ Mr Delaforce, a Racing NSW Country board member, said.

Racing officials and supporters are growing increasingly frustrated at the government’s failure to bring NSW wagering taxes into line with other states.

Queensland last week slashed its taxes on bets from 20 per cent to 14 per cent to compete with racing powerhouse Victoria.

This means the Queensland government will only take 82c from every $100 bet wagered on the local tote. Mr Baird’s government takes $3.22.  :rant:

The Victorian government retains $1.28 for every $100 bet wagered.

“To be honest, the NSW government is plundering us,’’ Mr Delaforce said.

“They’re taking millions of dollars out of racing but don’t want to put it back in.

“We’ve been promised money for our track (at Port Macquarie) for years but we’re still waiting.’’

Racing Minister Troy Grant, a Dubbo-based Nationals’ MP, has declined numerous requests to explain his government’s refusal to act on this issue.

Mr Delaforce said the lack of funds meant country racing facilities had “just about had it” with prize pools shrinking and horse ownership falling.

“If we don’t bring our facilities up to standard, people won’t bet on the races and the government’s take will go down — can’t they see that?” he said. “Queensland obviously understands that, Victoria understands that.’’

Thoroughbred racing is a major employer in NSW, particularly of unskilled labour in regional areas, with more than 50,000 people working directly or indirectly in racing.

Mr Delaforce, who has been involved in the industry for more than 20 years, said he was concerned that Racing NSW may have to consider amalgamating clubs.

“Andrew Stoner ought to realise communities ... don’t want to lose their racetrack,’’ he said.

“He’s the Deputy Premier and he should be able to do something about this.’’

Good to see officials stepping up.

You can bet (pardon the pun) that Delaforce's position will be under pressure from the guvmet, unless others stand up and close ranks.

Here is a great opportunity to bring this to a head, and get a result.

A lead has been taken - let's hope he gets support from others with the ticker required to take a risk.

I might be the only person in Australia who black-book's this gelding for its every race start, but it owes me nothing now.
Spruiked often enough in this thread, and give credit to DD for the initial heads-up.
Missed only one of its wins - the biggie at Wagga at $21  :(

If you aren't following it through its classes now, I can't help you.
Still getting the fruit, and always well-placed at odds.
Breezed through the 1400M today, if you could call 0.2L a breeze   :lol:
Can't do more than win ... maybe I was lucky, but this horse has heart.
So has the jockey - well done Koby.

I took the early $3.50, but Bet365 paid me $5.30 (Tatts).
Forgot they don't pay best of 3 on country weekday meets, but gotta be happy with that.

Rats - every horse has an owner or two ... but give us a reason to care about it.

I'd be letting my mates know that good news is bad news to those not in the know.
Otherwise they shouldn't tell you at all - one would think anyway.

Lots of people on this forum tell us AFTER the event.
So I have gotten around to ignoring most of it as justifiable post-event excitement ... not really meant to help readers.
They just want us to share their excitement AFTERWARDS.

I'm AM happy for them, but I can get just so happy before I begin to be "happied-out" ... if ya know what I mean.

What I do now, is what they are doing - pick my own, and pretty much keep it to myself.
Except I tend not to tell anyone what they missed out on, after a win.

Better that way. And I am not such a good tipper to be straight about it.

Sad. But that's life. I appreciate that at least you are keeping us in the loop somewhat.

EDIT: "justifiable post-event excitement" = JUST PEE

Shoulda mentioned it here before I hit the hay this morning.
So yes, it is a bit hollow crowing about it after the event.

It was just that it's about the only horse I talk about now, and was getting a bit like a cracked record.
I'll keep mentioning its runs until I get told ta shut up.

But pleeeze ... put it in ya black book:

Here's mine (below).

I have left the original comments, even though no longer applicable (eg MR O"CEIRIN  Wet Tracker - Doomben Cup)
They remind me of why they are in the Black Book to begin with.
Notifications are automatic when the horse is nominated for a race, so never missed.

BETTER IDEA goes around in the 6th at Warwick Farm on Wednesday  :bulb:
Race is for "No metro Wins" class.

Currently on the 4th line of betting at $13.
As a LS winner, he's fit.
Has won 4 from 10 with a 3rd as well. And as a front runner, he should lead from his gate.
Has won 2 on a heavy track and 2 on good tracks.

He's drawn the paint, and gets in only 0.5kg above the limit.
4kg under the top-weight, so he's a show imho.
he's running at 1400M and I reckon he'll get further, going by his history.

Should be a safe drum bet in this field, but will have a little on him to win as well.

Here's today's tip sheet which I email only to myself - I don't want to recommend anything that will hurt people.

But there are two to look at that came up in the last in Belmont, if you already have ideas in that race.

I do not recommend betting on them or anything I post. I'm still getting a lot of bugs out of my approach :)

Don't sell it too short.
It'll win in town, and it'll win a decent stakes race I'm thinking.

Thank you James. Whilst the win price was too short for me I stood him out in a tri and got it a couple of times. On that run he would have gone close on Saturday @ the $26 :sad:

12 THE BIG BOY SINGS  Harry Cootes Laura Cheshire 10 54kg

Numbers 2 through 6 come into the race with Brisbane form - don't think the others are up to it.

All 5 ran in the same race last start won by Coworth Park.

They finished:

Uno Five 55 kg beaten SN - 54.5 kg today
Hora Sexta 55 kg beaten 1.5 lengths - 54 today.
Attica scratched
Rock Musician beaten 6.2 L with 57.5 - 54 today.
Mightysui beaten 2.9 L with 56 - 54 today

#2 Uno Five is the most consistent but has a poor win strike rate.

I reckon 2-3-6 looks good for exotics.

Nice little twighlight meeting at Kembla today - hope the track condition holds up.

Some interesting runners.

High Chapp. half to Special Harmony debuts in Race 4. High Seas is a big strapping colt who looked pretty good at his last trial and 1400m first up looks ideal. Has struck a race with strong form though.

In Race 3 a relation to 2006 HK Gold Cup winner Cheerine Kid debuts. Military Lady looked good at her last city trial and expecting her to go well.

Race 2 is a strong Class 2. Looking forward to watching Lundi, Ironfire and Happy Valley resuming. Lundi is a grey mare with a big white blaze who won her maiden easily then was only beaten 2 lengths in town. Has trialled OK. Ironfire was a flop as favourite first start then bolted in (in the mud) at Gosford. Also trialled just OK. Happy Valley was the best trialler. A 7yo having his 4th start today he has won two of his three starts quite easily. Other runners aren't hopeless and race 2 is probably the most interesting race on the card.

Oscuro owned by Alan Bell goes debuts in Newcastle Race 2 Race 3 today for Kris Lees. Won it's last trial by a street and is out of a mare who is  a half to dual G1 winner Perlin. Looked pretty good in the trial.....just saw the fixed odds of $1.50 - one to watch only. Never back at those odds first start  :no:

Probably the shortest priced favourite in Australia today goes around in the first at Newcastle - the 1850m maiden.

Napoleon is $1.35 pre post and has come up $1.10 on the tote.

His city placing stands out when compared to horses getting beaten 22 lengths and the like in maiden company.

But what makes the form for this lowly maiden so interesting is that 5 starts ago Napoleon was running around in Germany and came up against a horse called Protectionist!

Some interesting bloodstock running for the first time around at Taree today.

A Dane Shadow half to Happy Trails called Danish Twist goes around for Kris Lees in the first at Taree today.

He has given it four trials - done OK in them - so it looks like it might be ready to race.

A Zizou half to Lucky Eighty Eight (won four straight in Melbourne over 2000m) called Incensual debuts for Luke Griffith in the same race.

To say it is not an overly strong race might be an under-statement.

A Husson half to the speedy Texan Lad who has won at Randwick goes around for the first time in the 4th race for Neil Godbolt. Called Laredo Hussler.

Positive Attitude in the same race debuts for Jeff Englebrecht. Is a Haradasun half to Maribyrnong Plate winner Jiang.

Spring Fairy in R1 at Bathurst is having it's first start for John Sargent after one start for Moody back in April last year at Caulfield. The dam is a half to HK Vase and Coronation Cup winner Daliapour.

Greg Ryan is riding Brett Thompson's good horse Great Choice first up in the 4th. Two good trials leading into this. Was city placed last campaign and ran 4th to Cluster and Rock Sturdy only beaten 1.7 lengths the start prior. Will carry 5 over the limit but looks too good for this class.

If there is any money for the Karakastanis horse in the last Bells Of War I'll be hopping on.

Had a very nice win on Race 5 at Bathurst, and all thanks to ratsack   :biggrin:

(should I buy him a beer  :chin: )

Sportsbet had a special on Race 5 whereby if you ran 2nd to the favourite you got your money back. I often throw $10 on something at odds in these promos (hit a 20-1 shot a few weeks back) and today lobbed $10 on the winner at 33-1.

Noticed in the form that it wasn't beaten far by Tip Rat last start, who was placed at Kembla on Saturday and who was tipped by ratsack - you remember these things when doing the tipping comp results, especially when I strongly suspect that ratsack tipped it because of the name   :lol:

Give thought to FLARENDI Grafton R5 #6 tomorrow (Sunday).

After winning her Maiden by 1.3L on a Soft(5) over 1300m on 19th Dec at Lismore (600m 36.31) she ventured to GC.

There, on 3rd January she struck plunge horse Nicky Nocky and finished 7.5L 7th-of-16 over 1400m (BM75)
What is striking about the race is that she was 14th at the 800 and 14th at the 400, from barrier 15.
Specced at $61 to $31. The last 100m she was coming on like a jet at her first start at the distance.

She's a 3yo with 6 starts: 1-1-2.

Peter Graham is booked to ride - he rode her at her maiden win $2.20 Fav.

I feel Flarendi will be better suited by the Class 1 conditions from barrier 4 at Grafton and has 56.5kg.
She's run two sub-36s times on good tracks in her placed races, and we are offered $4.40 at Sportsbet.
This far out it's probably a 'safe' quote from them. #10 and #16 are likely dangers.

Bet365 has no market as usual for anything on Sunday, but early shoppers may do better there when they realise they are bookmakers, and give us a market.

Not sure of the prices but they are probably favourites, but I am keen on 3 today at Newcastle

R1 #9 Zelitist - tipping a maiden in a 2300m race. By Zabeel out of  aGian'ts mare. Looks promising.
R3 #1 Malachite - very speedy. Weight only worry but I figure over the 900m course he won't notice it   :biggrin:
R7 #2 Lofty's Menu - looked to be ambling in his trial at Rosehill. First start for Snowdens.

There is an open handicap at R4 Grafton today where the Northern Meteor gelding Lucky Meteor resumes.

He is going for 7 in a row at his first up run, and has a record of 12:7-2-1

He is out of a mare called Arising which had two stakeswinners (she is no longer with us).

Certainly the highlight of the meeting.

R1 Banknote Beau left the money in the bookies bag first start when third ($5.50 into $3) but he has struck a race where that looks like the winning form.

R7 Okane always generates great excitement in our household as it is my wife's maiden name and the 11th of 13 at Coffs last start looks bad on paper. But it was only beaten 2.9 lengths and was first up. 5 starts ago he was beaten only 4 lengths at Canterbury in a BM 75 with 57 kg. There are a lot of horses in this you can put the line through straight away and Okane each way appeals as the best bet here.

Clemmensen in the last R8 looks a promising horse but will carry 59 kg. Had a trial leading into this (2nd of 9) so I'm expecting him to be forward in condition.

Track currently given out as a soft 5.

Might have a little on the two champion jockey's mounts.

Kaypers hasn't been forgotten by the handicapper but in the big field first up and a bit of give in the ground watch out he doesn't "flash" at them in the last 100m.

Double Halo has indifferent form recently but he is on the limit and looking through his recent starts he has carried significantly more than that.

From barrier two, third run back, Robert Thompson riding and with only 54 kg might be a better chance than the form guide suggests.

Thanks PP7

DH can handle all sorts of going, and has a 48% place s/r on good-to-soft.
The track is a Soft(5). Looks to be a drying day ahead - perhaps a Good(4) by R7?
Fitness gave out final 200m last start - should shake this today.

He has a great chance. Those Country Championship races were a strong class 5 but he does look highly promising.

Have chucked him in an exacta with the other two boxed up.

#15 Loved Up won at Wagga barrier 14 on 15th March this year at $8 with K Bensley steering.
One T Berry takes the reins today. Again $8 today.

I think the horse can make its own luck in this.

#5 Play Master $9 wins at good odds - avg price $6.70.
You could be right here mate.

Fav #8 Got The Goss had been off the scene since Dec 2013, and comes out and wins the Prelude 2 weeks ago carrying 56kg.
Today carries 54, but starts out in the car park too. $4 this morning.

I like #4 King Cobia if he's right. long time between drinks for this fellow ... and also out wide.
Getting good backing though on Bet365. Now $10 there in from $15

Think I'll look on today.

Sorry PP7 - missed your post this morning in my post-work fog.

Just checking things now.

You should never ask me what I like, but today it would have been a good idea for this race.

It was my only winner for the Weekday Comp today ... #6 Landlocked G Boss $5.50/$2 Tatts.
LL is a lightly-raced 8yo and with the services of Bossy, it did look a chance.

Bit of Friday trivia:

Learning to look past the glamour horses, to see what else is fit and in form.
Faust was not out of it - above average, fit, and Avdulla up.
Might have had this FF today, had I not been so sleepy  :sad: ...   :biggrin:  Hindsightly-speaking
I'm a great fan of Brenton Avdulla - quiet achiever, and a value-horse jockey ... check his history.

https://www.punters.com.au/jockeys/Brenton-Avdulla_190/
http://www.racenet.com.au/stats/jockey/b-avdulla

Wagga: (Avdulla)
R2: #6 2nd $2.20
R3: #7 Poncherello Won $3.50
R5: #10 Its My Call Won $15.90
R7: #4 Faust 2nd $4.30
R8: #14 Ainzali Unpl.

Neat day's work!

SR: 1-in-7.5 rides
Avg win odds: $8 +/- and he knows how to get his horse positioned from out wide at the jump.

Historically I am not a tipster's bootlace ... though some people think that's all I am  :bleh:   :lol:

Tomorrow my black book is bursting ... will post them on the blog later

We've got a good meeting at Grafton today  :)

Will have something on R4 #8 Caravel. Form stacks up for mine. Won a C&G BM 55 by 3.3 lengths on the 11/5. The same day the F&M BM55 ran half a second slower. 3rd horse in that is #9 Strada Hill and it has since won. 2nd horse home to Caravel was Hide The Moon and he has since run 2nd in that class. Will carry the same weight after the claim. Is a Les Bridge cast off and a half to city winner Tiger By The Tale. There is a direct female line to a good Tommy Smith horse called Gay Nineties who was winning races when I first started going to the races - she produced a couple of Group 2 winners. Saver on #3 Star Of Legs who has strong formlines also.

R6 #3 Scorpion Prince is a city placegetter who is resuming from a 450 day spell. Ran 2nd in a trial beating Dantga into 3rd (?? the new Todman   :biggrin:  ). Would only have to reproduce something like his old form to win this. I have #6 Hotel Drive, #10 Cloud Consort and #11 Watchandwait as good chances also and will box all those in an exacta.

All Up R4/8 R6/3

R4 Exacta 8 to stand out from 3,9
R4 box Trifecta 3,8,9

R6 Exacta box 3,6,10,11
R6 Trifecta 3R from 6,10,11

Having a shocking time tipping on this forum.

Last Saturday my 4 tips in the comp ran 3rd last, 2nd last, last and the other one fell (true story).

On Tuesday, Scorpion Prince was scratched and my only tip, Caravel, was being hard ridden at the 800m mark (always a worry that) and ran duly last.

Yesterday I keep my mouth shut, and have two bets for two wins - Cabalistic ($9 fixed) and Mydream ($11.60 top tote).

Going to open my mouth again to say I noticed Tye Angland is going up to Gosford tomorrow for two rides. Tye is riding in the best form of his career. Rode one for Johnny Sargeant on Tuesday at Hawkesbury and you wont see a prettier ride in a long time. Rode a winner at Warwick Farm yesterday. Travels up to Brisbane on Saturday and has some very good rides.

I think he is going up mainly to ride one for Kris Lees in the last called Land Grant. Resuming. Two starts for a third then a win in a Newcastle maiden. Has had two trial placings. Is a High Chaparral half to a good one Bart had a few years ago called Flying Pegasus (G2 + G3 wins + placings behind Racing To Win).

The horses below Land Grant will struggle in this company. The two horses above Land Grant both have city placings.

Gosford Race 8 #3 Land Grant each way
Gosford Race 8 Quinella boxed 1,2,3

If Land Grant runs last (or second last) I will never place any tips on this thread ever again.  :o

Had a nice win on young Jess Taylor's mount in the last at Warwick Farm yesterday Mydream - an all girls affair with Mel Harrison training it.

What alerted me to it is that recently I have started looking at all horses carrying 53 kg or less and then "drilling in" to the form - Mydream carried 51.5 kg on the back of a city 4th. Great ride by Jess arriving just in time   :biggrin:

Today I've marked out 3 that might improve with light weights (in some sort of order of confidence):

Albury Race 7 #6 Southern Sunday
Gosford Race 4 #6 Latina Belle (only 2 place divvies so will back the place)
Gosford Race 7 #6 Lite The Light.

The Albury horse drops 7 kg on his last run in a 0-58 rating race in Victoria - this race is a BM 60.

Pretty rare you see an open handicap in the country these days outside of Cup races.

The last at Tamworth is the Winter Dash.

Poor old Goldstone has changed trainers again. He is now domiciled in the beautiful surrounds of Cessnock having been trained by Bart and David Payne in the past.

I've got #8 Flukes down to beat #2 Just Crewsin' with little confidence after this week  :shy:

Been waiting for this horse to race after his debut back on the 22rd May.

Dantga won his first race start like Todman. 9.3 lengths the official margin, easing up.

I know it was only a Grafton Maiden. And I know it was a heavy track. But they rarely win like he did.

There are a few students of the horse on this forum who have a good eye for stride. To my untrained eye he looked to have a beautiful cadence.

That track at Kempsey was a bit dodgy I thought mate. Always a worry when they come down the outside fence. A good effort by Dantga under the circumstance. I took $2.30 about him on Sunday Night on Bet365 so quite happy with the price. Want to see him on top of the ground.

I'd give DC another chance. Not really sure how it is 3 and 4 deep facing the breeze from barrier 3 and did run out of room in the straight.

The winner of that race was French Command. Geez that brought back some memories. French Command was a good class stayer who won the 1979 Grafton Cup ridden by Keith Banks and then trained by J Roach - but I'm sure he was trained in Sydney at some point by someone like Theo Green or Les Bridge??? I think he might have been placed in a Group 1 or Group 2 staying handicap also.

I think some of these country cups are overdue for significant prizemoney increases and with the parity policy of taxation coming into force they should be a major beneficiary.

Notice the effect of the inclusion of Phrases in the field. Every horse except Borehole is on the limit, and this includes the stablemate of Phrases, Rapidus, who is going for 5 in a row.

I hasten to add that Bindi Cheers is operating 100% within the rules and has not scratched Phrases which often happens when this sort of thing goes on.

And I'm sure the club is happy because Bindi turning up with two good horses adds depth to the race.

Having said that we will declare Rapidus a weighted certainty   :biggrin:  I have 1,2,4,5 marked out for exactas.

I thought there might be a "get out" bet at Goulburn today.

R7 #5 Doubos has formlines that contain horses like Sadler's Lake and Final Decision which is much better than the opposition. The 1400m looks ideal second up. Has never run bad race in her 8 start career.

Races in the famous red with a white cap. Interesting breeding. Her dam is an imported daughter of Port Helene who won the Lingfield Oaks Trial as well as two Group 2s and a Group 3 in England. Doubos is displaying some of this side of the family and might perform over a distance.

Canny Lad is the last bastion of "Star Kingdomism" and the Northern Dancer bloodlines are thin on the dam side. Doubos will make an interesting breeding prospect when her race career is over.

Dantga won his first race start like Todman. 9.3 lengths the official margin, easing up.


Our mate Dantga went around as a $1.80 favourite in a Class 3 on the first day of the Grafton carnival today.

Was 3 deep early, then went around to take up 2nd possie in the breeze. Was an increasing 1.3 lengths in front at the end.

There were no other races over the odd distance of 1115 meters so there is no time to compare.

He has come home in 34.03 for the last 600m.

Mullet Man won the Grafton Cup prelude.

Single Chance was responsible for an impressive win in the John Carlton Cup.

Good meeting at the country music capital of Australia today. Track Soft 7.

Plan of attack? Quaddie.

Race 5.

#1, #2 and #3 dominate the market and for good reason. Will put all 3 in.

Race 6.

#4 is a $1.70 favourite going on it's 5.5 length win at Armidale last start. Not keen at that price. #3, #5 and #8 best chance of the rest.

Race 7.

#1 looks the bet of the day to me in spite of the weight. Resuming but has had two trials. Lightly raced but has never ran a bad race. Two starts back was 3rd to Kuro over 1000m at Warwick Farm on a heavy 10. #2 only possible danger - resuming after only two starts which were a win and a 4th. Might have improved with the spell?

Race 8.

See Robert Thompson thread. Like #4 and #6 with #2 and #3 given strong chances.

Base Ticket:

1,2,3 / 3,4,5,8 / 1,2 / 2,3,4,6

Extra Ticket:

1,2,3 / 3,5,8 / 1 / 4,6

2nd day of the 2015 Grafton Carnival. Feature race is the $50,000 South Grafton Cup.

With the globalization of horse racing (and everything else), you come across some unusual "stuff" reading the form guides sometimes.

FWIW, my ratings for the Sth Grafton Cup in predicted finishing order.

I like the top rater Kazoom. I think this is a good race for him if they are running on, and they usually are at Grafton.

Have no idea how to handle Thought Worthy. Will wait for him to show something rather than try and guess he will improve on the atrocious form displayed when with Team Williams - was 4th of 9 in a trial so he could improve. You'd have to wonder why "Cav" is bringing the horse all the way up here if he didn't think it could improve, so bears watching.

Had a look at the Coffs form for today.

Heavy 9. If they start running down the outside fence you can forget everything below.

Race 1: Take your pick 1-4. Was going to have something at the $12 available for Goodos but the time I finished doing the form it was $6  :rant:

Race 2: 6, 2, 12, 1 and 3 here. Grabbed the $67 about the toppie. Way overs. Just checked. Out to $81. Smart arses. Had some more on it. Will anchor a parlay with Rob Thompson's mount.

Race 3: 15, 4, 8 14 - keen on getting the quinella here but they are just about the 4 favourites.

Race 4: #1 looked like a pretty smart horse last start and finds itself in a weak race. 7 is a danger though.

Race 5: #1 Pellium. Highlight of the day. How good is this bloke after his 7.3 length romp on debut. Heard an interview with Neil Godbolt the other day and you can tell he is trying to dampen his excitement. $1.35 fixed. Often you get better value from these tossing them into a parlay for the place.

Race 6: Toppie again.$6 looks good each way. 4, 2 and 5 to run the placings

Race 7. Sawtell Cup. #1 and #3 are the class horses with  a leaning to the toppie because of the good jockey on board   :biggrin:  Watch out for a roughie sneaking in there. A few might improve sharply to their form last campaign with a bit of fitness. Talking about 8 ($34) 12 ($18) and 15 ($34)

Add Wagga to the never ending list of abandoned meetings due to the big wet in NSW. Warren was abandoned yesterday.

Can't complain though after such a long period of drought for a lot of areas of the state. You'd hope it is falling in the right places.

But given that country NSW as a category supplies more racing product to the wagering firms than any other category you'd think some of them would be feeling the hurt with all the missing meetings.

Our mate Dantga went around as a $1.80 favourite in a Class 3 on the first day of the Grafton carnival today.

Was 3 deep early, then went around to take up 2nd possie in the breeze. Was an increasing 1.3 lengths in front at the end.


And he graduates to city class with his unbeaten record intact   emthup

Both jockey and horse had to undergo vet inspections before being allowed to race. They showed some amazing footage of him galloping around to the start and when he saw the crossing he started bucking and tried to throw the jock. Went on for quite a while. A good win under the circumstances. Bennett said after his second win he was looking at the different markings on the track trying to avoid some.

With a bit of maturity he might overcome those fears and turn out to be a decent horse.

Well I rated a 20-1 winner equal on top and managed not to get a cent out of the Forbes Cup  :sad:

The second horse as cost me the exacta and trifecta. Oh well. On to Goulburn.

R1 #4 Cannyescent has looked strong in two trial wins. Early fixed markets has it at $2.10. Selected on top but no thanks at those odds.

R2 #2 Gatubala is $2.50 in the six horse race. Migh toss it the place best tote into some all ups. Very consistent in a field that lacks that quality.

R4 #5 Bullrush. His dam Pin Up (by Pins) is a daughter of Flying Floozie. She had a very good stakes winner called Forum Floozie, and I think this was owned by Rod Dufficy when he was a member of the old MSN forum (predecessor to this forum) living in HK - and I even think the word Forum in the name was alluding to the forum - could be wrong   :biggrin:

Of course Forum Floozie had an even more famous sibling and that was Starcraft.

He has looked very good in two trial wins. Apart from the 2 and the 3, you could put a line through the rest. They have done little since their maiden wins.

Just checked the early fixed and Bullrush is $1.30. WTF!! No thanks. Might see about the 2-3-5 trifecta.

R6 #2 Storm Siren. The grey mare was too far back last start and is really very consistent. As is #3 King Caleb. Confident the winner will come from those two. 1, 6 and 7 for exotics. $2.20 early for Storm Siren. No value at that price.

R7 #11 Marco Man is $7 early and appeals as an each way bet second up.

Race 8 I've got #5 Anecdote ($2 fav), #4 Trixie ($4.80) with 6 and 3 ($15 and $13 resp.) for exotics.

Cannyescant was so impressive. Raced 3 deep the entire trip. Just gathered them in easy then Kathy switched him off to the point the stewards might have had a word. They ran 1.5 seconds quicker than the Class 2 race later on.

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2015Aug04&VenueCode=MTQ2ODgw&RaceNumber=1&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=FullReplay

Bullrush won easily in the end but gave Jay Ford a tough ride wanting to get his head on the side in the last 200m or so. The trainer is known for patience and I suspect they will take their time with him. If he learns how to race properly he could be a stable star.

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2015Aug04&VenueCode=MTQ2ODgw&RaceNumber=4&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=FullReplay

Confident both those horses will graduate to city class pretty quickly in their careers.

Gatubala was a confidently backed odds on shot and was the first horse beaten.

Marco Man just got too far back and alas that is the 2nd time in a week I have said that about a horse ridden by this apprentice. Nice effort for 3rd placing. In fact I backed the wrong horse in the race. Who would have thought you would have Marco Man and Marked Man in the same race  :shy:

Anecdote looked the winner everywhere but the last stride of the race. Was too short for me at $1.70.

First day of the Coffs carnival tomorrow.

Only two races appeal for betting early on:

Race 3: #4 to beat #8
Race 4: #8 to beat #3 and #7 - query on the unraced one #1 who won his barrier trial.

Confident I've got the main chances covered off in those races.

You could see Shazza Bubble's jockey getting worried about being stuck near the fence as they approached the turn and it was justified. Winner flew down the outside fence.

You cannot complain about all the rain we've had - it is great for our rural folk.

But can anyone recall so many wet tracks and abandoned meetings as we've had in NSW since April? I have been following racing for 40 years and cannot recall anything like it.

Bjorn Baker has the favourite in Race 7 today at Wyong. Dennis Denuto.

Am scratching my head at the comment in Luxbet's form guide:

Clear running straightening. Only battled strt. Jockey reported held his breath.

Who held his breath? The horse or Glyn Schofield?

If it was the horse, is this a trait that would be good or bad? I vote bad  emthdown

I see Brenton Avdulla goes back on Dennis and he is in great form at the moment.

I'm trying to work out why #10 Owhanica is 20-1 on the back of two wins last two starts in a field where the form guide is very light on wins when displaying their last 4 starts. Very open race where the form of those on 54 is very competitive with those who have big weights. The race that #11 ran in last start I think was stronger than this. I've boxed 2-6-10-11-12 in a couple of exotics.

Did you get on Owhanica

You know what is "nice" mate. When you miss a race and log into your account and before you get a chance to look up the result you notice that the balance is roughly $600 more than your were expecting   :no1:

There is another thread about the new benchmarking and handicapping that I want to delete. Who are these people that want things perfect? They are going to wreck everything.

That race today - I couldn't work out what is in the handicapper's head. Poor old Bold Life. He has just turned 4 and won his maiden last start with 59 kg at his eighth start. So what does the handicapper do when he rises in class? He gives him 60 kg. Meanwhile the lightly raced 8yo mare Owhanica has won 4 races going into today's race - including her last two. She carried 55 kg winning a BM55 then wins again last start with 58kg in a F&M BM55. She rises in class just like Bold Life, but the handicapper gives her 3 kg less.

I don't want this madness to stop. It is an opportunity to make money. Will those people complaining about the madness of the Benchmark handicapping system please shutp  :/

Title: Country NSW
Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2015-Aug-09, 02:51 AM
Have done the form while watching the EPL and the great Foxes win  :clap2:

Scone 09/08/2015 Soft 5

Race 1 #1 Clearly Innocent won a barrier trial leading into this and is on debut. He is a 4yo by Not A Single Doubt out of a good staying mare of Gai's called No Penalty who ran 4th in a Chairmans. You'd think 900m would be too short but sire was a noted speedster and the wet track stats are good for him. Of the raced ones #5 Weheilani ran 2nd on debut and #2 Watta General led and wilted a bit at the end so the blinkers and the shorter distance might see an improvement.

Race 5 #4 Whateverchic will be ridden by the in form Mitch Bell and is trained by Alan Denham whose win strike rate is impressive - especially when compared to other trainers in this race. Has consistent form in the slightly harder races icloser to Sydney and this appears easier. A watch on #1 Kyogle Town. Forget last start. Has won 5 from 11 and 2 placings. That is good form for this.

Race 6: #3 Ode To Caitlyn is dropping enormously in grade over it's last two starts and is preferred each way with Mitch Bell on board. #2 Halfway To Heaven and #3 St Luke are very consistent and pick themselves as dangers.

Race 7: #5 Shamfrancisco bolted in at Quenbeyan last start and is the most exciting thing on the day. But the early odds are a turn off. Wouldn't touch him at those odds. #9 Just Charlie will carry only 51 kg and is most consistent.

Early Odds

Race 1
#1 Clearly Innocent 5.00
#5 Weheilani2.40
#2 Watta General 6.50

Race 5
#4 Whateverchic 2.80
#1 Kyogle Town 13.00

Race 6
#8 Ode To Caitlyn 8.00
#2 Halfway To Heaven 9.00
#3 St Luke 3.80

Race 7
#5 Shamfrancisco 1.65
#9 Just Charlie 26.00

Bega 09/09/2015 Soft 6

Race 1 #3 Unyielding has never missed a place in 5 starts and hard to go past him here.

Race 2 the Eden cup is the most interesting race on the program. Luke Oliver has brought #1 Kaiser Sun up from Melbourne and he is weighted on 64kg and every other runner has 54kg. He won at the Valley 4 starts back but has failed up the straight at Flemington subsequently after showing pace. #2 Quietly Brilliant has city form and will not know himself with only 54kg on his back. In the field of 7, 3 are from victoria. #4 Sendari and #7 Scoring both bear watching.

Race 3 Luke Oliver looks to have a very suitable race with #4 Sondica. #9 Premier's Gift and #2 Redondo Rock are the only two to have any form. The rest are hopeless.

Race 4 #3 Jungle Edge looks like he is in a weaker race than last start at Goulburn when the closest of 3rds and a bit unlucky. Oliver's #1 Military has fair form for this and #6 Outrageous Deal and #7 Rich Tycoon are good place chances.

Race 5 is extremely tough but #9 Gresham Station is lightly raced and steps up to the 1600m after putting in arguably the run of the meeting at Moruya last start.

Race 7 #2 Aidan Anthony is most consistent which is more than you can say about most of his rivals.

Early Odds

Race 1
#3 Unyielding 2.00

Race 2
#1 Kaiser Sun 3.50
#2 Quietly Brilliant 1.90
#4 Sendari 26.00
#7 Scoring 34.00

Race 3
#4 Sondica 5.50
#9 Premier's Gift 4.40
#2 Redondo Rock 2.20

Race 4
#3 Jungle Edge 4.00
#1 Military 3.25
#6 Outrageous Deal 6.00
#7 Rich Tycoon 17.00

Race 5
#9 Gresham Station 7.50

#2 Aidan Anthony 5.00

Good meetings at Taree and Wagga today.

Taree

Race 2

#7 Me No Marsh Potato (what a stupid name) has the best form and #2 and #4 look to be the only other threats unless something improves dramatically - which they often do.

Race 3

In no particular order 1-3-5-6

Race 4

Been looking forward to this horse #2 Saaher racing again. Won his maiden at his second start by 3.5 lengths easy as you like and Neil Godbolt couldn't get the grin off his face after the race. I think he knows he has a smart one in the yard. 1-3-5 look to be the only dangers.

Race 5

Don't like the race. Main chance is #2 Art Delago and it has drawn wide with an apprentice riding. There is absolutely no pace in the race and if the trainer is on the ball he will instruct the rider to lead on ADL.

Race 6

1-9-4

Race 7

Perfect race for #3 Egyptian Ruler but awefully drawn. #9 Betterbetred was in the same race as ER last start and finished pretty close to it. The two emergencies #13 and #14 get a run and both have a chance.

Race 8

Every single horse in this race has a chance.

# Oakwood Lady resumes with blinkers. Has had a trial, is well drawn and has a 2 kg claim for the in form Rachel King. Each way at around $7 appeals. The Hong Kong horse is an interesting runner.

Wagga

Heavy 10. Not keen at all.

John Scorse is keen on Race 6 #1 Doogan's Rise and looking at the form he probably has good reason.

Racing in the next race at Wagga

Spare Parts: the five-legged racehorse makes her way to the track

Often when a racehorse flies home to victory, it's said to have grown another leg. In the case of Spare Parts, it's actually true.

The two-year-old is remarkably racing after being born with another leg spurring off from its front right leg.

"I was shattered when I saw her. I didn't even take a photo of her," part-owner and trainer Trevor Sutherland said. "I gave her to the [Charles Sturt] university to see what they could do with her and help train their vets.

"They did this operation and in the end I bought her back for $300. I thought she would just have a life in a paddock, and was happy with that, but she has got to the races and runs again at Wagga on Friday."

The condition is known as polydactyly. In this case Dr Bryan Hilbert, from Charles Sturt University, was able to remove the extra canon bone, tendon and suspensory ligament, which had started to form.

"In 45 years working with horses I have only seen three or four cases like this," Hilbert said. "Once we removed the bone, there is actually a good recovery rate. I did another racehorse, which raced in Western Australia.

"The operation took a couple of hours and we had a lot of students there to see what we were doing. It is great teaching tool and certainly something that's pretty rare.

He met the top weight twice last year and conceded 4.5 and 4 kg to him and they finished almost identical. That weight turnaround is over 6 kg so DH is a bit of a weight horse here.

The favourite Sooner Or Later is a lightly raced 6yo who has been to the races 16 times for 5 wins plus 5 placings. His form is strong and consistent and deserves favouratism. Greg Ryan rides him from a tricky barrier.

Brilliant Poet is in well dropping 4 kg on his Muswellbrook win.

Have done the form for Coffs tomorrow while watching the EPL.

Race 1

#2 Gone Romin is a special. Should work over to the lead from the wide gate and say good night from there. #5 Harmonic Hussy for 2nd. Incredibly bad form on the rest of the runners. Unraced ones even worth considering here. Took $3.10 on Bet365 about the fave. Should be $1.50. In fact I've taken the $1.53 fixed place as the first leg in an all up. It would have to drop dead not to place here.

2, daylight, 5

Race 2

2, 11, 8 and 5 - a lot of these stepping out to 1500m for the first time so can be a bit of a trap. Took the 20-1 about #11 on Bet365.

Race 3

You can instantly put a line through numbers 5 to 9. With #4 scratched that leaves 1-3. The #3 probably likes it a bit longer and is first up. We are down to 2. They met last start. #1 Burgundy Jack led #2 Wickedly Risque over the 1000m and they went fast. WR ran past BJ him beating him home 2.2 lengths. BJ meets WR 1.5 kg better so mathematically little between them. This race is 1200m vs. 1000m last start. If Spokes can hold BJ back a bit he might improve but I'm leaning toward WR. She looked the stronger at the end of the race. A fast pace gives the #3 Star Fest a chance to run over the top of them.

2, 1, 3 but don't expect any value

Race 4

The 3yo #4 Around The Moon is lightly raced and won in this class last start and rises 3 kg. The 4yo mare #3 Happy Shoppo also has good form from only 10 starts. She goes up 2.5 kg on her Class 2 win last start. #6 Glimmer is a 6yo mare that has been placed at Flemington, Randwick and Canterbury (thrice) but is a bit past that form. Nonetheless is a good chance with only 1.5 kg above the limit. Those 3 are the only ones with winning form in their recent form - I think that counts for something, doesn't it??

4, 3, 6 and 5

Race 5

Most of these horses are Class 1 horses. #1 Caravel won his first two back from a spell over short sprints and then didn't go as well ovre the longer distances. Switched back to 1000m here might get a good run from the barrier.
#2, #4 and #9 are the promising ones from the Class 1 group

1, 2, 9, 4

Race 6

#1 Johnny Feedback looks a promising horse. Well drawn. #12 Xerxes Dream is drawn to run a race with the featherweight. #6 General Longstreet might be on the improve.

1, 12, 6, 2

Race 7

Gawd what a race!!

6, 10, 1 and 3

At Taree today, I like the following:

Race 3 #4 Saaher the blinkers go on and #5 Uttar Pradesh looks to have ability.
Race 4 #14 Tisritz won a trial by 4.5 lengths and will carry 53kg - a mate owns the second horse in that trial and it ran very nicely in it's debut the other day.
Race 5 #3 Testalina has won her past two and the horse she dead heated with two starts back has franked the form, as has the horse she beat last start.
Race 6 #5 Single Melody comes off two good runs at Doomben and two wins in her past 5. Distance a slight query but she hasn't really had many runs over the distance (1 according to the form guide). the featherweight will help.
Race 8 #4 Sheza Gypsy to lead all the way.

In the Cup I am taking the advice of others and backing Slivivitz but I do think that this race has Robbie Thompson's best ride of the day.

JP if you back Phrases suggest you have a saver on stablemate Rapidus. Has won over the course and distance and the $61 on offer is the most noticeable thing in the betting for me - that is way overs.

Good luck for those having a bet on Cup day.   :biggrin:

Dubbo is off today which leaves the Lismore Cup prelude meeting.

In the prelude, I thought the old bloke Lord Pyrus was weighted and drawn to run a nice race. The toppie claiming 2 might also be a good move.

Maryann Brosnan is sending down a team of 5 and wouldn't be surprised to see her return home with a double. Cyril Small returns from his Victorian trip to ride 3 of those.

Some well needed rains around the state will interrupt racing but it is for the best.

Hope none of our forum members are caught up in the flooding happening on the South Coast at the moment.

You gotta feel for those like the farmer in this picture trying to save their stock. Let's hope all horses are safe and sound as well.

Best of luck to the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club as they conduct their first ever "tabbie" on the new track in beautiful Tuncurry today. Has come up with a perfect rating of 4 for the 6 race card.

Very good fields with the best North Coast stables represented and Rob Thompson is riding there.

Evans Wants To See Plenty Of Chaos At Tuncurry (Saturday)

By Grahame Timbrell

The last thing the committee at Tuncurry-Forster Race club wants at its first TAB meeting on Saturday is chaos.

The one thing that Tuncurry’s resident trainer, Terry Evans, wants to see is plenty of Chaos at the finish of the TJL Business Advisors Class One and Maiden (2100m).

Evans believes that his New Zealand-bred five-year-old called Chaos is getting up to his right distance and his chances have been improved with Robert Thompson taking the ride.
Chaos is one of six horses Evans will start at the meeting on the state’s newest and what many trainers are coming to regard as one of the best country tracks in NSW.

I've got a program that checks the NSW runners for a particular meeting that are nominated for either the Caulfield or Thousand Guineas - there was a bit of discussion about this on another thread.

Caulfield And Thousand Guineas Noms For WYNG0

AMBIENCE Race 1 No 4 is nominated for the Thousand Guineas
DAWNIE PERFECT Race 1 No 5 is nominated for the Thousand Guineas
INFINITE LOVE Race 1 No 7 is nominated for the Thousand Guineas
MACAVITY Race 2 No 10 is nominated for the Caulfield Guineas
RAGEESE Race 2 No 13 is nominated for the Caulfield Guineas

Ambience is a Godolphin horse that has had only the one run in a Newcastle 2yo running 2nd and resumes today. $3.00 fixed.

Dawnie Perfect is a Singo horse trained by Clarry which is city placed in 3 runs and resumes today. $17.00 fixed.

Infinite Love debuts for Snowdens in the Kolivos colours and is $16 fixed. Is a full brother to a nice horse called Brewery (Gerald Ryan trained).

All three have had two trials in prep for this campaign without setting the world on fire.

In Race 2 Macavity is unraced for Godolphin having had 5 trials. Mum won the Werribee Cup.

The very interesting runner is Hawkes Rageese. How's this for form for a Wyong Maiden. 2nd in the Pago Pago. 2nd in the Group 1 Sires behind Pride Of Dubai and recently 4th in The Rosebud at Randwick when it was resuming. Not surprisingly it is at unbackable odds of $1.30.

At the prices on offer might have a little each way on the two at 16's in the first race and a speccie on Macavity.

At Moruya today I thought Race 4 #10 Dance Harder Son (HARADASUN  from GORGEOUS DANCER :) ) looked a very good bet and you should get black odds.

Might have been the camera angle ... or my eyes are seeing things, but did Kissick look for every other horse's backside and drive his mount right up it ... if it was once it was 5 times  :what: :what: :rant:

The horse may not have had the turn of foot to take the gaps ... hard to say  :shrug:

The horse may not have had the turn of foot to take the gaps ... hard to say  :shrug:

Just watched the replay. I think you could run that race 10 times and he wouldn't win it JP. With the benefit of hindsight now, was a very weak maiden at his first start. Winner was first up. First up last time was 2nd at the same track then went to Goulburn and ran 5th. That was the key. There are a few lengths difference between Goulburn and places like Moruya because Goulburn is patronized by a lot of Sydney trainers as it is an easy float trip down the M5.

I enjoy analyzing country form but you can't pick them all the time   :biggrin:

On the Wyong front don't think we saw the Guineas winner today. Rageese won but was uninspiring. Mark Macavity down however as this horse will win his maiden in provincial or even city class in quick time. Ran on very impressively from the back half. Will get out to a bit further than the 1350m of today's race as well. Could even win a Werribee cup like his mum did :)

In the fillies division, winner Gone To Paris didn't want much further than the 1350m but the significant item here is that it has franked the form of one we saw at Canterbury that absolutely bolted in at it's second start for Snowdens called Serene Majesty. This is one genuine racehorse. Look at her get her head down and get on with the job.

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2015Aug12&VenueCode=NTUxNzYw&RaceNumber=2&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=FullReplay

I think there is Black Caviar ownership in the horse and her family has some black type in it including the Irish Thousand Guineas winner Tarascon. Serene Majesty is nominated for the Australian version of that race.

So while we may not have seen the Thousand Guineas winner today we might have got some evidence of who will win the race   :biggrin:

I have blackbooked Macavity and Serene Majesty.

Alas they (bookies) are on to Serene Majesty and she is already on the 5th line of betting for the Thousand Guineas and there is little value backing her this far out IMO.

It's easy to be harsh when you don't stop to think a bit - a fault of mine I have long worked to overcome.
I did it again with my above statement - didn't consider that these are still learning to race, to a degree.  :shy:

While SERENE MAJESTY did make the rest of the field look like they had lead in the saddlebags in your vid, I took note of GONE TO PARIS's run.

GTP threw her head about - looked quite green/over-racing a bit.

As you observed, it was no surprise for her to salute today, given her finish in that race when 3rd behind SM.

What did surprise me was the starting quote with Tatts: $6.60 ($5.50 fixed).
How did that slip through?

But the First Four dividend tells the real story of the race - any of the 4 would not have surprised in the winners box.
The market framers got it right.

Staying away from the wet tracks at Bathurst and Wodonga today.

Two bets. Armidale R3 #2 Occy's Express - liked his only run and the extra 100m should suit but they are backing an ex Victorian horse off the map. Naval Craft didn't show much down south but won a Tamworth Barrier trial in good fashion.

Armidale Race 6 #5 Champagne Flyer is 2nd up and hoping she can improve with the good draw and run up to some of her form earlier last campaign that would put her right in this. Big odds so only having a shilling each way.
Title: Country NSW
Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2015-Aug-31, 02:39 PM
Well the bookies kept it from Naval Craft. Didn't handle the reverse way of going. Mine was too far back. You have to be on the pace at Armidale.

Jane Clement was interviewed before the race and talked up the chances of the winner. She seemed to be confident of having a big day and she trains my roughie in Race 6.

She trains at Bendemeer between Armidale and Tamworth - home of the famous New England parliamentary member Ian Sinclair. He must be getting on a bit now if he is still with us. Her and Greg Radley were joking about the cold at Bendemeer.

I was driving home from Sydney late one night back in the eighties and will never forget an experience I had at Bendemeer. It had just started lightly snowing and I came around the bend and the road ahead was absolutely covered in rabbits. Wall to wall. The road probably still had some warmth on it from the day and all I could do was drive very slowly and hope they jumped out of my way - still reckon I ran over a dozen of the buggers.

If you start doing the Newcastle form today and start at race 1 you read the form on #1 in the 1600m maiden and see it is hopeless and think "yawn" but....

#3 More Than Fabulous is out the G3 winning and G1 place mare Absolutelyfabulous - has performed well in the city thus far
#5 Skytrek is out of the G1 Emirates winner Sky Cuddle (isn't there a forum story on this horse??) - having it's second start for Gai
#6 Sydneysider is in the family of Caulfield Cup winner Imposera
#9 Daisy's Joy is probably one of the most valuable fillies in Australia being a daughter of Tuesday's Joy. 3rd start today stepping out to a mile for the first time for Snowden and Singo.
#10 Espresso Shot - not to be outdone by business partner Singo, Gerry Harvey has his Big Brown daughter of G1 winner Isolda having her 3rd start.
#11 Horizontal is having it's 3rd start for Godolphin is by Med. D'oro out of Margham - family of Mohave

All too hard? Let's move on to race 2....

#1 I Know So is having it's second start for Tess Wilkes and is a High Chapparel half to Mr O'Ceirin
#4 Clear Ripples is a close relation to top flight HK horse Scintillation

Tess Wilkes reminds me of another famous name in trotting Chris Gleeson...is that the same Chris Gleeson that is training #7 Forgotten Gal in the second race  :what:

There is a real revolution going on in NSW country racing at the moment and that is the emergence of this army of young lady jockeys and apprentices.

John Scorse was interviewing Jess Taylor before that race. What an intelligent, articulate young lady she is. She has 6 mounts at Warwick Farm on Wednesday and seems to be going from strength to strength.

Grafton has a 10 race program today on a Good 3.

Race 1: Possibly the second best bet for the meeting is in the first, #1 Miss Money Talks. Was 5 deep (yes 5 deep) for the entire race at it's first start when 2nd to a smart one and still seemed to be taking ground off it at the end. If Cassandra can get in a bit closer she looks to have their measure here. Only goes up 0.5 kg against her own sex this time. Main dangers are the former Victorian #10 She's Got Curves who has drawn the rails - the Victorian provincial cast offs are doing very well on the Northern Rivers - and Toby Edmonds horse #6 Astradas might appreciate this company.

Race 2: Too hard

Race 3: I think Hammersley will have Toby Edmonds horse #8 Kiss The Condor on the pace and the slightly shorter race will help. Drops 2 kg on last start 2nd in slightly harder class.

Race 4: Not keen

Race 5: 3-1-7-12 in the staying race - hoping some of these having their 4th run back will hit peak form.

Race 6: Lot of pace in this race. Looking for something with good form that runs on,the toppie #1 Battalion, last start winner, likely to appreciate the distance.

Race 7: A lot of these go up in class on the back of maiden wins. Peter Graham is seeming to be preferring the mount on #7 Va Va Voome who is coming out of a better class race and is drawn well.

Race 8: #6 Capricious Spirit won it's first two starts by 3.5 and 3 (x 2.5). Then was only beaten 2.2 by Sargent Doakes in the Inglis Classic at Scone and was 8th of 9 well beaten in the Group 2 Furious Stakes behind Speak Fondly 12 days ago. Classified as best bet at the meeting. #4 and #14 for the exacta.

Race 9: Not keen

Race 10: All the best chances are drawn off the track here. #13 Wrath Of Odin if he starts and if he gets a bit of luck from out in 15 might be worth a bob each way.

BEST:

Race 1 #1
Race 3 #8
Race 7 #7
Race 8 #6

VALUE:

Race 5 #3
Race 10 #13

Storm causes track chaos

 A RACEHORSE was put down and a jockey hospitalised after a hailstorm hit during the running of a race at Grafton in northern NSW yesterday.

The storm swept across the track during the running of the fourth. All runners finished despite hail falling as the field entered the home straight.

When the jockeys eased their mounts down and tried to return to the mounting enclosure, drama unfolded.

Three jockeys and the clerk of the course were thrown from their horses.
Jockey Jasen Watkins injured his shoulder and is in Coffs Harbour Hospital while clerk of the course Alan Watkins suffered facial cuts.

The racehorse Beau Brock, which finished second, took fright and suffered head injuries when he ran through a fence and had to be put down.

“I’ve never seen anything like it, it was relentless,” steward Drew Smith said.

The remaining six races were abandoned.

Interesting, the quality of journalism in Australia.
It seems that even on simple reporting matters they just can't get it right.
Do they even bother to try, or do they just have someone on work experience in a back room making up the details.
For example the Courier Mail reports that a horse at Grafton sustained head injuries and had to be put down.
The CEO of the jockey club had the following to say "My understanding is that ... one of his legs went underneath the fence and when he attempted to stand up he caused significant damage to his leg resulting in him being euthanised shortly afterwards by the club veterinary surgeon."

Lismore Track listed as a Soft 6 at 1130 hrs yesterday and weather is Fine. So hoping for a little improvement.

My ratings have Bernie Of Babylon on top on the back of his Mur'bah Cup win but my gut feeling is that Get On The Grange's ratings should be a bit higher because it has been racing in far stronger class - you could make a case for adding 2-3 kg.

Thus have gone for:

#5 Get On The Grange

to beat:

#8 Solo Saga - Brisbane form may be stronger than the numbers suggest.
#6 Bernie Of Babylon
#7 Kingston Time - had to recheck given his 50-1 price. Form can be a little bit indifferent but if he can bring his "best game" he is drawn to run a nice race.

#4 Avalanches hasn't got bad numbers. It was just hard to find a run over this distance where he hasn't failed and the barrier is a shocker.

They have had a dig at Plutorius early. No doubt Robbie would be on this horse for his good mate Jeremy Sylvester if he was travelling up top God's Country today.

Well picked GL.

Raymond Spokes rode 3 favourites at Lismore yesterday. He won on one and I backed the other two - including Get On The Grange, where either his plan or the trainers plan was to ride them both cold until they entered the straight and hope that everything else would collapse. Didn't happen. Was never going to happen. In fact watching the replay of the Cup I still reckon I picked the right horse just that it was ridden like they had no idea.

Tegan Harrison on the other hand, had a challenge. Plutorius had drawn 18 and she didn't want to be back with Raymond giving her mount no chance. So she actually came up with a plan that was magnificently successful. She had a think about things before the race and that is why she will be going places while other jockeys will never graduate to the next level.

Starting October 17th, Racing NSW will introduce an initiative that will add a ninth race to the Saturday city program that is restricted to country trained horses.

Called the TAB Highway races, these will be Class 2 or Class 3 events.

Pretty sure they will be capacity fields with diverse formlines so those who like these sorts of races to have a bet in will no doubt be satisfied.

http://www.racingnsw.com.au/default.aspx?s=article-display&id=18665

Also some huge changes coming in aimed at increasing the number of country participants in city racing

http://www.racingnsw.com.au/default.aspx?s=latest-news-display&id=18299

Apparently they get bigger holds on bigger fields. Never really understood this myself. Would much rather have my "serious" money on a 6 horse 3yo race at Canterbury on a Wednesday than in some open handicap with 20 runners and who are going to get in each other's way and whose form it is impossible to line up.  :what:

But it looks like I am in the minority here. Maybe that old terminology "mug punter" is correct in a general sense.

With the TAB Highway races coming up cannot get the Steve Earle song Low Highway out of my head.


Don't think they will be using it any promos however. It details the unfortunate stripping of wealth from a lot of rural towns in the US to fund modern day decadent urban lifestyles.

Australia is no different. Our rural towns have unemployment rates many multiples that experienced in the city.

In a funny sort of way these initiatives by Racing NSW aim to give a little of the racing money back to communities where it is most needed.

One of the pleasures of being able to watch country NSW racing on Sky Thoroughbred Central is that you get to see our magnificent rural tracks.

It is more meaningful if one can follow along a bit on an otherwise lazy Sunday afternoon:

Travelin’ now
On the low highway
Three thousand miles
To the Frisco Bay

Cross the rivers wild
And the lonesome plains
Up the coast and down
And back again

Saw empty houses on a dead end street
People linin up for something to eat
And the ghost of America watching me
Through the broken windows of the factories

Pickin bones of a better day
As I roll on the down the low highway

Travelin’ now
On the low highway
By the yellow moon
And the light of day

From the snow white crown
Of the mountain tall
To the valley down
Where the shadows fall

Met a man with a rifle in his hand
Been away to battle in a distant land
Taught him to hate taught him to kill
Now he’s out on the road with a hole to fill

Nobody knows the price he paid
So he takes his toll on the low highway

Travelin’ now
On the low highway
Windows down
Listenin

Wheels turnin round
On the asphalt sayin
Every sound
Is a prophecy

Heard and old man grumble and a young girl cry
Brick wall crumble and the white dove fly
And a cry for justice and a call for peace
Force of reason in the roar of the beast

And every mile is a prayer I prayed
As I roll down
The low highway

Why is it off topic mate? This is the Country NSW thread. Who said it had anything to do with racing   :biggrin:

Am a late follower of Steve Earle, Jim. First heard his music on the first series of True Detective. They used this track which I think is pretty unique - haven't quite heard anything like it:


I got these lyrics off the internet but don't think their entirely accurate e.g. pretty sure he sings "knew this day was coming nearly all of my life" not what they have down there...

I had a melancholy malady
Went to see the doctor and the doctor say
Too bad, nothin' he could do
He knew a man in Louisiana if Im willin' to pay
Laid my money on the barrelhead

Man behind the bar began to shimmy and shake
Can't lie, I reckoned I was dead
When he picked my money up and I heard him say
Meet me in the alleyway minute to midnight
Don't be late meet me in the alleyway
Better come runnin' the spirits won't wait
Thirteen tiger teeth in my talisman
St. John the Conqueror and a black cat bone
Been seen walkin' with the guardians
Now Im in the alley and Im all alone
Can't run, can't hide from destiny
Knew this day was callin' nearly all of my life
Been done ain't the only boy from Tennessee
To carve his name in cypress with a jawbone knife

So you wanna be the king of America
Say you wanna know the oracle's mind
Say you wanna see the Marquesses of Mardi Gras
dancin' with the devil at the end of the line

Muswellbrook today. Not a bad meeting.

Had these marked out...

R1 #2 Lindwall
R2 #10 Zigamore
R6 #3 Eye Saw
R7 #9 Lucky Ima Cugat
R8 #6 Professor Marx

Now that they have changed the weight scales in NSW so that there is a bigger spread, I do a cursory scan of the form guide and look at the lightweights.

Thought that R3 #7 Impuesto (52 kg after claim) looked well in.

Race 6 #9 Naoko (51.5 kg) drops significantly in weight over recent fair efforts.

Race 7 #9 Lucky Ima Cugat carries 52.5 kg, only 0.5 kg more than it did when it won at Warwick Farm 3 starts back. Then ran 3rd to Vanbrugh then last in the Cameron. Seems to be in very light. Tricky barrier.

In the same race, #12 Don't Move won last start with 59 kg in a BM55. Drops to 52 kg here.

Race 8 #12 Hey Evey - worthwhile throwing into the drum in some bets with 51 kg. Receives 11 kg off the toppie and a couple of handy horses in the formlines.

Good luck if you are having a bet  :x:

The most interesting first starter tomorrow at Hawkesbury is the Gerald Ryan trained Local Three Sixty in the 3rd race. Is out of November Flight who won the Millie Fox G3 and the Woodlands race at Hawkesbury. Has trialled twice winning the last one impressively. Interesting thing is that he has chosen to start the chestnut son of More Than Ready over 1500m for his first race - a bit unusual for the stable I would have thought. Josh Parr to ride has drawn very well if he has the pace he showed in his trials.

Jess Taylor rides #11 Cracklin' Rosie in that race who drops 2 kg on her defeat in the Dulcify Quality last start. This is a lot easier.

Tommy Berry rides #4 Grand Cross for the stable in the 4th race and it has won it's last two. Raced only 4 times. The #2, #3, #5 and #6 look to be the competition. #5 King Kazou is first up and ran 3rd in a trial. Last two starts hasn't been that far away from a couple of smart ones.

In the 5th will be interested to see how #1 Bogie goes after his strong debut win at Scone - 2nd horse won yesterday. The Matthew Smith stable is firing but there is some good opposition so it is no gimme.

In the last Tony McEvoy's horse #3 His Highness is a lightly raced 6yo who is 2nd up. Mum is a daughter of the great Tycoon Lil. Race looks very winnable.

Looking at the lightweights......

R3 #11 Cracklin' Rosie

probably the best.

Ladbrokes are betting Bets Tote/SP + 20% on this race today. Sportsbet will give you cash back if you run 2nd to Sooner Or Later. So worth an investment IMO.

6 of the 12 runners were engaged in the Coonamble Cup over this distance on the 11th October.

Going to make an assumption that the winner today will come out off that race - a calculated risk by no means guaranteed. We can assess So You Know through Couperin who he thrashed at Armidale last start.

This is how they finished in the Coonamble Cup, and the weight comparisons:

No Horse Trainer Jockey Barrier Weight(kg) Margin Weight Today Difference
2 DARK MOJO Brett Thompson Jacob Gilchrist (a3/50kg) 1 52.5 0 56.5 4
1 SOONER OR LATER Mark Milton Greg Ryan 6 58 0.1 61 3
4 COUPERIN Sue Grills Darren Jones 9 54 1.1 55 1
6 KYOGLE TOWN Peter H Blanch Ms Leanne G Henry 3 54 1.3 54.5 0.5
10 THE DEESTRUCTOR Terry J Fahey Erhan Kacmaz 10 54 2.1 54 0
3 FOX SOLID Garry McCarney Kody Nestor 12 57.5 4.8 58.5 1

The Replay

Dark Mojo had a nice run as did Thee Destructor. Couperin and Sooner Or Later got too far back and flew home. Kyogle Town had a tough run being 3 deep at one point contesting the lead and had to use a bit of gas up early. Fox Solid was well back all the way and didn't get a lot of room in the straight.

The Weights

Dark Mojo and Sooner Or Later rightly are disadvantaged by a couple of kilos.

Fitness

Fox Solid and Couperin are 4th run back from lengthy spells.

Stats

Dark Mojo 21% WSR 49% PSR
Sooner Or Later 24/62
Couperin 14/31
Kyogle Town 37/50
The Deestructor 14/48
Fox Solid 19/38
So You Know 19/44

The Early Odds

Dark Mojo $7
Sooner Or Later $3.60
Couperin $5.50
Kyogle Town $7
The Deestructor $17
Fox Solid $21
So You Know $4.80

Conclusion

Kyogle Town is drawn beautifully in barrier 3 today and might have an easier run. Couperin has a poor WSR and PSR compared to the others, but his stats are much better since being transferred from Doug Harrison in Vic to Sue Grills.

So You Know went out to 1300m last start and was beaten. Steps up to 1600m here where he is 3: 0-0-0.

We will go:

Kyogle Town on Ladbrokes
Couperin on Sportsbet.

No value in a boxed trifecta. Will take a couple of exactas around the 1-2-4-6

Unbeaten Grafton galloper Dantga travels up to the big smoke today and is running around in Brisbane Race 4.

He looked pretty good getting through the mud at his first start when he won by 10 lengths so should have no problem with any soft conditions today.

Might take an all up with Bede Murray's horse in the 5th, O'Reilly's Revenge, who drops a kilo in his close up 4th at Warwick Farm last start and looks well placed in the NMW class but his wet form is not so crash hot.

I missed the opening part of Dantga's race but I was fully expecting them to be positive and lead on him from the wide barrier.

They appear to have taken the negative option and snagged him back and have paid the penalty. Flies home for 3rd. Would have bolted in if they took him to the front IMO. Silly silly   :no:

Glen Innes only have the one meeting per year.

Used to work up there occasionally in the 1980's at the hospital - love the place and the people. Trying to get up there in a couple of weeks.

Came across this the other day. A shot of the main town centre from the same position in 3 separate eras. That building in the foreground with the arched windows being a constant.

1. 1900


2. No date given but looking at he cars would be 1920s??


3. Once again no date but I reckon late 90's or early 2000's.

It's great that they installed a light in the roundabout, not quite the same as 1900 but better than 1920 where there was no lamp.

Well I hope someone copped the tip - $18 top tote - $26 fixed when I posted that   :biggrin:

Some great news for rural NSW.

In the face of (predicted) almost universal forum criticism, I'd like to congratulate Mr Peter V'Landys for his, and his team's work in acting as advocates for rural racing in our state, when it was totally ignored for decades.

The mainstream urban population do not realize what has happened to our rural towns since the 1970's and 80's as the wealth has been stripped out of country towns and transferred to the big cities. This has been because they have had very little political advocacy. The kids are forced to leave and go to the city to look for work leaving the towns without any lifeblood.

The whinging and whining that went on in my own Sutherland Shire when the new NSW government dared to tell the Fisheries department that they had to vacate their beach front premises at Cronulla and relocate to the south coast (which hasn't been fished out yet) was breathtaking for it's ignorance.  :no:

One thing you've got to say about the current NSW Government, regardless of your political bent, is that they are putting a stop to this wrong.

Quirindi Monday. Have done the form  :)

Race 1:

#3 Invincible George is a big fella who won his trial easily and interested to see how he goes. Tough race with many chances.

Of the ones that have races, 7, 9, 13 and 15 have runs in their form that could win them this. A small EW bet on any of those if $10 or more.

Race 2:

Another tough race. Same strategy.

3, 6, 9, 10, 13, 14 - of the raced brigade if these can produce their best they are a chance in this. small EW bet if $10 or over.


Race 3:

#3 Kyrgios was responsible for a good run at Moree and the extra 200m and the big Quirindi straight will suit him.

Outside of him ther are a lot of horses capable of winning this and a big priced winner would not surprise

Race 4:

Interesting race for the weights alone. Open country sprinter #1 Opera Blu will carry the full 69.5 kg and Greg Ryan rides #2 Fort Sumter with 65.5 kg. The bottom weight has 54 kg.

I like #11 Tennavous from the rails to beat #4 The Graft.

Race 5:

Another hard race. #4 Kissed By The Sun is a lightly raced Encosta half to Eremein with a good strike rate - in a race where a lot of these have poor strike rates as you go down in the weights.

Race 6:

Anything could win this. Slight leaning toward the #10.

Race 7:

With little confidence have marked out #2 Global Storm with Sam Clenton up.

Race 8:

#13 Miss Nicconi to beat #1 Sir Hagrid

I've lost a bit of confidence with Heavy tracks one week and 40 degrees temperatures the next.

In spite of the re-handicapping, #6 Gamblestown is the $4.60 favourite on TAB Fixed odds.

Whatever I back, I will be having a penny each way on #12 Too High Tek. First up was a cracker, not so 2nd up. He only wins when he is a big price.

#1 Landlocked is the top rater on both Sky Ratings and Tatts ratings so I've secured some of the $26 fixed on Sportsbet.

Record Regional Racing Package Announced From Proceeds Of Parity


The Deputy Premier and Minister for Racing, Hon. Troy Grant MP and Racing NSW Chairman, Mr John Messara AM, today announced $21 million of increases in Country and Provincial prizemoney to take effect from July 2016.

Increases in minimum Country TAB and Provincial prizemoney as well as the introduction of Showcase Country Race Meetings will account for more than 60% of the proceeds from the second and third years of wagering tax parity and provide an enormous boost for racing in these sectors.

The increases for Country participants will see prizemoney jump to approximately $69 million per annum, up from $31.2 million in the 2011 financial year, an increase of 120% during that period.

“On behalf of the Baird Government I am delighted to announce that from 2016/17, minimum prizemoney for Country TAB meetings in NSW will be increased by $5,000 or 33% to $20,000 per race. In addition, minimum prizemoney for Provincial meetings will be increased by $5,000 to $27,000, a rise of 23% per race,” said Mr Grant.

“Further, Racing in Country NSW will benefit by the introduction of Country Showcase Meetings to be staged throughout the State. Approximately 40 meetings each year will be upgraded to carry premium prizemoney of $30,000 per race.

“These increases will build upon the economic and social contribution made by thoroughbred racing, especially in Country NSW,” Mr Grant concluded.

Racing NSW Chairman, Mr John Messara AM, said: “While our first year’s receipts from parity are earmarked to fund The Championships and Highway races, we are pleased to announce this significant rise in Country TAB and Provincial prizemoney from July, 2016.

“Country prizemoney of $20,000 per TAB race along with the new Showcase meetings make for the biggest ever injection of prizemoney into Country racing.

“On behalf of the Board of Racing NSW, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Premier Mike Baird and our Racing Minister and Deputy Premier, Troy Grant for embracing parity and placing Australia’s largest racing jurisdiction on a level playing field with Victoria over the next few years.

“Wagering tax parity is vital for the sustainability of racing in this State. The challenge is now to ensure NSW has a competitive, vibrant and innovative racing industry,” added Mr Messara.

These latest benefits for Country and Provincial racing, follow the introduction last season of the Country and Provincial Championships of $2.3 million in prizemoney and the recently commenced Highway Races for Country-trained horses which provide a further $1.6 million in prizemoney annually for Country participants.

Racing NSW has also committed approximately $50 million for capital works at Country and Provincial race clubs throughout NSW from accumulated race fields fees.

Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V’landys AM also announced that from 1 July 2016 Racing NSW will launch a new Traineeship and Apprenticeship Scheme for youth in Regional NSW by committing $1 million per annum to the Scheme.

“The first priority of the Scheme will be to employ apprentice track curators throughout NSW,” said Mr V’landys.

Mr V’landys also announced a payment of $2 million per annum to race clubs throughout NSW to enable clubs to meet their operating costs and operate at best practice levels, to commence from 1 July 2016.

“Finally, in addition to their 5% share of the increased prizemoney, jockeys will also receive a further $660,000 per annum in riding fees from 1 July 2016,” Mr V’landys said.

The five year phase-in of wagering tax parity in NSW that sees the NSW Government progressively reduce its share of TAB gross wagering revenue to that of its Victorian counterpart will provide $181.6 million of additional funding

Looks like a lot more SEQ trained horses will be heading South of the border to race.
Won't be surprised to see plenty of horses transferred to Southern stables as well.
The lowest level country meetings in northern NSW will now carry the same prize money as Qld mid week metro.
And there will be plenty of meetings with prizemoney 50% better than that.
And that is before the mooted reductions in Qld prize money.

Apart from the obvious winners, country NSW racing industry participants, the other winners will be the corporate bookmakers.

They will have a vastly improved "product" to offer wagering services. Country NSW racing, as a demographic category, offers more product than any other category across the week.

Would be nice to see some acknowledgement and an end to the bitterness due to the loss of the Racefields case - especially from outfits like Betfair/Crown.

My notes for tomorrow. More confident at Wyong than I am for Kempsey

Kempsey

R1 #8 Wonderful Thing - one of only two genuine chances in a weak race and ran on nicely last start
R4 #4 Masterstroke - superior form for this e.g 5th to Vashka. Only needs to be fit.
R6 #5 Tiaconi - in a weak race and has consistency
R7 #2 Single Spirit - looked very sharp winning a barrier trial
R8 #1 Pao Pao - good form in a weak race

Wyong

R2 #5 Hail The Chief - was 2nd between promising horses Kandinsky and Barood in town last start. This class suits.
R3 #1 Jigalong - Ran a very nice 3rd at only start. Winner Circular ran 2nd in a city BM 67 yesterday
R4 #9 Highdini - Snowden horse that was responsible for a great run at Canterbury only start.
R7 #7 After All That - was 3 and 4 deep at 2nd start and better drawn here.

Didn't too bad today. Had all up win and place bets on the 9 selections I made last night on Sportsbet and Bet365. Decided to take the fixed odds on offer at the time depending on who was better.

Was that a good decision criteria  :what:

R1 Kempsey took $3.50 (and whatever the place was) on Bet365. 3rd. $1.40 mid tote
R4 Kempsey took $4.00 SB - unplaced so doesn't matter but started $8.00 fixed. Dreadful decision.
R6 Kempsey took $3.65 Bet365. 3rd. $2.10 mid tote. Probably a bad decision.
R7 Kempsey took $3.85 with Bet365. 1st. SP 3.60. Best tote $3.40. slightly ahead there.
R8 Kempsey took $5.00 with Sportsbet. Unpl. Started $11 and $12.65 TT. Stupid decision to bet early. Should have won by a minute - blackbooked.

R2 Wyong took $2.00 Bet365. 1st. SP and TT $1.85. Ahead there.
R3 Wyong took $5.00 Sportsbet. 2nd. Paid $2.10 "Country best" for the place - about the same I got.
R4 Wyong took $2.75 Bet365. 2nd. Paid $1.40. About the same.
R7 Wyong took $4.60 Sportsbet. 1st. Paid $2.70 TT+. Winner!

Good luck to the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club with their big meet today.

They have had a tabbie already but this is the first one where they are the main meeting in the state.

And looking at the size of the fields there may be many more to come.   emthup

Looking forward to seeing if the big fella Invincible George can go straight from maiden class to graduate into an open 3yo today in Race 5 - unusual to see that grade of race at the provincials and country meetings.

The TAB Highway races seem to be going from strength to strength with tomorrow's field clearly the best thus far.

5 of the acceptors have won their last two.

If you watch Sky Thoroughbred Central's NSW Country coverage the trainers are often talking about taking their up and coming horses to town for the highway races. Greg Radley was also talking about how it becomes an important day for the owners who get to travel down for the race and get owner's privileges - win lose or draw it is a huge day for them as well.

What a great initiative by Racing NSW. If this keeps up they might have to start splitting them into two divisions.

Greg Bennett's unbeaten horse Clearly Innocent looks promising and is resuming. Hope Sam rides him a bit better than one I backed of her's on Wednesday. Northern Fury with the in form Brenton Avdulla on board also looks a main player.

Taree Monday.

Race 2: #1 Aspiring has won 2 from 4 and is a real speedster. If you back him you will be in front at the 200m - might have to hold your breath after that. #3 Shunting maybe the one coming out after him. Having said that, the opposition is nothing flash and the claim brings Aspiring down to only 3.5 above the limit.

Race 3: #5 Left Hand Louie (by Lonhro) was 2nd last on the turn on debut at Scone in the big field and ran on satisfactorily to about midfield. Gets an extra 200m here. From that race, first two haven't started, 3rd horse was placed at Gunnedah on Saturday and the 4th horse ran 3rd at Hawkesbury. Going to bank on that race being much stronger than this one - have blackbooked the winner Grammar School who was wide throughout and won with authority - should progress to the next class.

Race 4: Expecting #4 Bracko Mick to be a bit closer than last start when he was snagged back to last from the wide barrier. Also, he ran like a crab in the straight, and banking on the experience and strength of Robbie Thompson to correct that flaw  :)

Race 5: Might be some value in this race

#4 Son D'Amour - didn't have a lot of luck on debut
#5 View From A Bridge - will be a zillion to one but trial run was good
#8 God I'm Hot - wide draw ruined chances on debut and another wide draw here but has ability
#9 Pollyata - looks ready to run a race going on latest trial

Race 6: #4 Miss Krasna on debut was hard ridden before the turn because the impressive winner was off and gone. If she can get an easier run to the home turn in this she will prove too good for these.

Race 8: Going to take a punt that the #10 Dr Kimble and the #12 Ciqala were in a strong race last start and work around those.

Mmmm, not sure if it was a lack of luck but it certainly went ok, very green and I do reckon they can improve by 3-4lengths from the first to 2nd runs :beer:

Think the meeting today at Goulburn is suffering a bit from a Friday Nighter at Canterbury plus the Villiers day at Randwick.

I had a note to back Tommy Gun in the 6th - looking at it's form think the 15's is a bit of overs  :chin:

We are spoiled with two good meetings at Dubbo and Cessnock today.

Have backed these - both in tough events so looking for some value.

Dubbo Race 1 #9 - ex Victorian having first start here
Dubbo Race 4 #2 - might go through the minor classes in three straight races.

Robert Thompson's mount in the second last at Cessnock is the subject of an article on RNSW site:

Mi Sassy Challenges Light On Ice (Monday)

By Racing Presenter, Gary Harley

The clash of promising three-year-old fillies Mi Sassy and Light On Ice could be the highlight of the Wine Country Race Clubs last meeting of the year at Cessnock on Monday.
The pair will both resume from a spell in the 900m Hygain Class 1 Handicap.

Mi Sassy is trained at Scone by Rod Northam and Robert Thompson will ride her.

She has had six starts for a win and three seconds but she has been runner up in two quality two year old events.

Mi Sassy was unlucky to be beaten a head by stablemate Sargent Doakes at Scone twelve months ago and he went on to win the Scone Inglis Challenge.

First up from a spell at Muswellbrook in March Mi Sassy finished second to black type winner Flippant in the Greg Cribb Memorial.
Northam said on Friday that he didn’t feel the need to trial the filly before Monday’s race.

“It is only 900m and she is lightly framed and doesn’t need much work. Mi Sassy is working well and she is pretty smart. This filly has raced in good company all the way through. She will be hard to beat,” Northam said.

In Dubbo, IF Excited Lover can jump with them for once he has a nice hope in the Cup.

There are a couple of unraced ones in Quenbeyan and Coffs today worthwhile looking at their trials.

Gary Nickson is taking Oxford Hill to a weak maiden in Quenbeyan today. She's a little bulldog and showed speed to lead them in a very strong trial and only Flippant (dual listed winner) and Motivated (one start one win for Godolphin at Wyong) went past her:

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2015Dec04&VenueCode=MjA0NjI0MA==&RaceNumber=10&MeetingCategory=Trial&VideoFileType=FullReplay

Just looking at the form of this race wondering if she isn't being taken down there for a "soft kill" first up.

Another one that might be placed for a "soft kill" is Ken Lantry's horse Roses Need Rain who is a half to his good city winning mare Ambivalent.

Looked pretty good winning her trial:

http://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2015Nov25&VenueCode=NDE0MTIw&RaceNumber=5&MeetingCategory=Trial&VideoFileType=FullReplay

This is a weak maiden.

Great racing at Wyong today with the MM preludes.

Geez Brenton Avdulla is riding well. I reckon very few jockeys would have got that favourite home in the first race.

Has some very good rides today:

 Brenton Avdulla
    Race 1   Imposing Lass   Bjorn Baker
    Race 2   Wolf Street   Gerald Ryan
    Race 4   Egyptian Symbol   Bjorn Baker
    Race 5   He's A Given   Clarry Conners
    Race 6   Magical Milly   Brent Stanley

Imposing Lass is by Makfi out of a Zabeel mare and Bjorn Baker mentioned the Qld Oaks as a target for this filly so keep an eye out for her.

If you like Capitalist, and if you watched his recent trial you will, suggest consider taking the $3 on offer for the MM instead of the $1.33 today. If it wins in an authoritative fashion that $3 will disappear pretty quickly.

B Avdulla  on Egyptian Symbol at Wyong  :lol:  God it would be hard to find a worse ride. Rode it like a cowboy

Mate I black booked Egyptian Symbol with the comment "needs a bigger track other than Wyong or Gold Coast".  Think Wyong is not his track.

Also blackbooked It's A Shamozzle out of the next. Claim got his weight down but he needs a strong rider.

Wyong form, when you see it in a horses record, needs to be looked at - track doesn't suit a lot of horses.

PP, I have a thing in my blackbook called Mitchforce. R3 at Scone today. It's form is very poor and my notes tell me it was stiff last start and needs it weak.

Is this weak enough?
Title: Country NSW
Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2015-Dec-18, 08:02 AM
Will have another look at it mate.....

My initial notes on Scone today.

Race 1

Full of unraced 2yo's.

Race 2

#12 Go Dolly Go former Vic with OK form to come across to lead with #13 So Joyous. and #7 Swaane to get a nice run from the barrier. #3 The Garret has been gelded during his spell and first two runs good enough to win this. #9 and #14 strong consistent form this grade.

7 - 3 - 9 - 14 - 12 - 13

NOTE: #6 and #11 unraced with Thompson and Ryan riding - so watch markets.

Race 3

#3 Bold Looker and #4 Exit Only look the top 2. #6 and #11 have form around this grade. #8 is a former Vic but the 1100m looks too short but has shown pace.

3 - 4 - 11 - 6

NOTE: #5 and #14 unraced with good stables

Race 4

#7 Hot Vinni was a great run at Canterbury last start. Better jockey engaged this time. Great strike rate.

#3 Pro Consul is 7:5-1-1 at the track and unbeaten at two goes over the track and distance in restricted grade. City grade horse who will be near the lead here.

#5 Piammi is resuming but is also city grade and has had a trial. First up 7:1-2-0. Two placings from 6 at the track. One placing from 3 at the distance.

Except #10, all the others have the ratings to win this if they produce their best.

7 - 3 - 5 - 9 - 1

Race 5

All horses given a chance on recent form. Especially down to #10.

#7 Excited Lover vying for the tag of "Australia's worst beginner" will appreciate the big track.

Will look for "overs" in this race for #1 to #10. Anything over 10-1 worth considering. The "Moonbi Marauder" Mullet Man is $13 in early markets. Maybe each way with God engaged for the ride.

#3 each way

Race 6

#1 Hammond Lane is highly promising and resumes with a 2 from 2 first up record. Will carry the full 62.5 kg with Greg Ryan aboard.

#3 Reunite is also first up. Numbers do not look flash FU 4:0-0-2 but if you drill in a bit 3 of those were in town and there was a 2nd to That's A Good Idea first up from a let up. Barrier looks aweful but unimportant over the track and distance.

#6 Iron Blue also resuming with a good record and won a trial. #4 and #12 given a show.

1 - 3 - 6 - 4 - 12

Race 7

The favourite #4 Salteron has the 2nd best place strike rate and form looks good but a bit of a query over the 1400m

#3 has the best place strike rate but has drawn out in the Barrington Tops.

Tough BM55

3 - 2 if forced to go for a selection. #3 is $13 in early markets.

Race 8

#1, #2, #3 and #5 have superior form for the Class 2 but the handicapper has made things hard with the weights.

#1 is $15 in the early Bet365 markets and would appeal each way on that basis.

In no particular order....

1 - 2 - 3 - 5

Early Prices

Have backed the following on the basis of early odds plus my assessment matching up with ratings

R2 #3 The Garret @ 19.00 (they responded by putting it immediately out to 21.00)
R5 #7 Hot Vinni @ 4.40 (into 4.20)
R6 #1 Hammond Lane @ 4.80
R8 #1 Fragmento @ 15.00

If all 4 win I will be dining on Lobster Mornay and Chilli Prawns until next June.

I tended to think that the form coming out of that Tuncurry meeting wasn't the strongest - so that is why I didn't include him. He has had 18 goes as well.

But as you point out, the form is not that strong and at 50-1 (which he will probably start), I will be putting him into my exotics now that he has been discussed   :lol:

He was stiff (yellow with the green sleeves and cap)

He was stiff but I just watrched some of his others runs and it's the same. he seems to get back and find trouble or takes tooooo long to wind up. Big track should suit. I'll give him 1 chance at the price. Buckley going on is a huge plus. 
He is in Scone rather than bathurst for some reason, just got to figure out what it is  :lol:

 Grant Buckley
    Race 2   Trades Hall   Jan Bowen

    Race 5   Bonus Spin   Jeff Englebrecht
    Race 6   Via Con Dios   Alan Scorse
    Race 7   Golden Perch   Jeff Englebrecht
    Race 8   Cervinia   Stephen Farley

I thought race 2 was his best chance. About $5 in early markets. They keep putting the price of the one I backed early out. Now 25-1. Swanee seems to be getting some support.

Race 5 has a good chance - $13
Race 6 is a bit of a mystery Nth Qld horse who ran OK first up in NSW  - 16-1
Race 7 just out of maiden class without any exciting form but in a weak race. $13
Race 8 is $15 which looks about right.

Might track any flucs inward........

Have a blackbooker going around in the first at Kembla called Laurentian with the note "needs a stronger rider". Jamie Penza riding today so they don't come much stronger than that.

Took some 81's on offer yesterday. Was surprised by the price a bit. Noticed it is in to 30-1 on Ladbrokes.

They have calculated that the most comfortable temperature for a human being is 23 degrees Celsius.

If you take all the temperature observations in Australia, and work out which one fluctuates the least around an average of 23 degrees C you come up with Port Macquarie  :)

I don't know what the deal is with Wauchope?
I do recall playing cricket in the centre of the track as a youngster, and they have dogs and it is a showground also I believe?
They don't race TAB meetings there- basically I am trying to say, Im not sure if they are costing the industry money?

Kempsey has a limited future at that track,imo.

Most punters don't want to bet at tracks like that- which is part of RNSW master plan. Not sure where Kempsey actually fits in with that though.

Tuncurry  looks a good track in a good location so should have a future, I agree

I have my father and a brother-in-law up here D-G, and close family at Kendall and Taree. We come up every year just before Xmas to get together and all stay at Rydges where another brother-in-law owns the apartment that the ophoto  yowas taken from.

The drug problem is an Australian wide thing. City drug dealers came to realize that there is less policing needed in the country so thy target these areas.

However, and you would know what I am talking about, you take a great risk dealing drugs in a town like Port Macquarie. You are more likely to encounter "local justice" if you deal to the wrong people and you may never be seen of or heard from again in that scenario.

I cannot recall a TAB meeting at Wauchope. Do they run them  :what:

Kempsey and Bowraville are definitely "B Grade" country tracks but the area probably deserves one decent track.

But overall you can see the transformation of country racing in NSW being a positive thing. Racing NSW are doing a fantastic job for country racing - similar to what has been done in Victoria.

I think your city racing improves on the back of a strong country and provincial circuit.

Racing is a 7 day a week international wagering product now and we have to accept this. And the wagering operators are after premium product to fill in the gaps. NSW and Victorian country racing are going ahead in leaps and bounds on this renewal. I'd just wish our friends in Qld would join the party.

But he has picked a pretty hard Class 1 for her at Gosford today. #3 Cagney was equally impressive winning his maiden and might have won in town last start if not for the start.

Don't know if Gosford qualifies as "Country NSW" ... haven't been there ... yet :)

But worth noting that 2014 Straddie winner RIVER LAD resumes in the first race - the Takeover Target stakes ($100k) over 1200m on Friday.

Might be decent odds for this - giving the rest of the field 6kg!!
Is top rated, but faces some smart in-form opposition.

Kris Lees won't waste him.

Winner of prev race: Sea Home took 1.23.00 ...  Last 600m: 0:35.96

A faster sectional by 1 second = only 5+ lengths+ on a soft 7

From the stewards yesterday:

RACE 5: Kinghorn Motor Group Maiden Handicap 1400m

Dylan’s Romance – When questioned regarding today’s improved performance,
trainer Mr M Conners stated that whilst the gelding had raced in a more forward
position today, his instructions had been similar to previous starts in that he had
requested the rider to attempt to ride the gelding positively from the gates, and today
he was surprised that the gelding was able to take up a more forward position. He
added that the gelding had demonstrated that it had ability in the past having been
competitive in the Wellington Boot in March 2015, but it had been lacking form until
today.

Well thanks Marc that makes me feel better  :rant:

and for wily....you were lucky they took it out mate..sounds like it was rabid or something  :what:

Noted that it drifted before the scratching was announced  :chin:

RACE 7: Shoalhaven City Council Benchmark 59 Handicap 1200m

Twisted Miller – At the request of trainer Mr R Price the on course veterinarian
examined the gelding and due to the presence of an abscess to the right side of the
gelding’s jaw and observation also of a nasal discharge the gelding was a late
withdrawal at 4:57pm. Trainer Mr R Price was advised that he would be required to
provide a veterinary clearance prior to the gelding being permitted to race.

Interesting runner resuming at Muswellbrook in the first tomorrow.

#7 Al Fever disqualified at Louth over a year ago due to a positive to Isoxsuprine (a beta-adrenergic agonist acting as a peripheral vasodilator prescribed for the treatment of conditions such as navicular disease, laminitis, pedal osteitis and sesamoiditis).

Won a trial by 5 lengths at Cessnock recently. One of the top chances in the race going on past form.

Race 3 #11 Another Larga selected in a tough race.

The whole meeting is very hard to sort out. One of those days where a few roughies getting up wouldn't surprise.

Omen tip is in Race 6 #9 Bowie's Babe.

Im a tad curious about The Equalizer in the 3rd. Was building up to a win after 2 unlucky runs and a nice 2nd over the mile but got beaten hopelessly at his last start on the 3rd of December.
back to 1700m after all that time off seems odd but the Perry stable do like a bet :chin:

If you leave the last run out of the equation The Equaliser has a big chance.

I found that sort of thing (inconsistent form) dominates the meeting. A lot of it can be explained by the mixture of wet and dry track form so for those willing to do their homework there may be a bit of value up there today.

Rail is out 5m from the 1000m to the 300m then the cutaway kicks in. It's the sort of meeting where you might want to observe the pattern of racing before committing to a bet IMO.

Was thinking that Ballina R1 #1 Heroism looked the best of good things in the set weights maiden given it has been placed at Canterbury and was only beaten 2.5 lengths by G1 winner Japonisme last start.

But it has eased with the big plunge on the unraced Brisbane horse #11 Nieta who has firmed from big odds last night into $2.90 favourite.

Racing!
I have long held that money talks (other than saying 'goodbye')

So much for markets.
So much for so many things.

But tbh dealing with unraced horses (unknowns to the gen public) one needs to follow the money or just enjoy the race as it unfolds, from the sideline. Interesting that both first and third (your horses of interest) were by Nicconi. Could be an intersting stallion this season.

In my view, Wiggins has been a 'money jockey' for long enough to be noticed, and the smoke was there.
We should not be surprised about the fire.

Grafton 24/01/2016

Race 1

2yo race hard to predict. No bet

Race 2

#6 Ministry of Fear - good horse but last start and barrier trial puts head to left. A worry.
#9 Crazy Love - 4th to MOF in that barrier trial clearly outpointed but Goulburn run would put him in this
#10 Hot Mist goes OK
#11 Just Imagine maiden form OK

Race 3

Tough race

#3 Ask Me To Dance will appreciate the distance
#6 Rock Springs runs on at the end of his races, but gets a long way back, maybe too far back.
#1 Splinter has been consistent in this grade
#8 My Moochie for 3rd position in trifectas

Race 4

#4 Lucky Sky looks suited by the jump to 1200m. Won last two. Looked very strong at the end of the race last time.
#5 Babana Joe gets back and runs on and will be suited if fast pace
#8 Onslow was close up behind Lucky Sky last start and stable runners usually perform well
#1 Classroom Destiny looks poorly weighted but some chance for exotics

Race 5

#3 Portatorio won by 5 lengths before a spell and looks promising. Bit of a query on the class of horse it beat last time.
#1 Boolaroo won from an impossible position over this distance at Armidale then was only beaten 4.5 lengths in TAB Hwy race.
#2 Mystic Renegade is unbeaten but opposition looked weak. But was strong at the end of the race last time.
#10 Clivedon House applied a blowtorch to his rivals last start and it was a notable improvement. Ridden the same way may be a player.
#11 Don Caballo is first up but has never run a bad race. Form from last start has held up

Race 6

There is some pace from runners drawn off the track in this and I find they run on in these open 1000m races at Grafton q.v. Sir James Kirby at carnival time.

#5 Capitano three starts ago ran 2nd at Warwick Farm separating Lord Leforic and Richard The First. If he can reproduce that run here he would bolt in with only 0.5 kg more. Runs on.
#4 Arabian King has good form including some respectable Brisbane runs. Also runs on.
#6 Single Melody is  a second up specialist and has stats good enough to win this.
#3 Aimalac Burra has a chance but is one of those on pacers drawn wide

Race 7

#10 Pride Of Rawbelle drawn ideally for his first test over the 1700m - has won over 1415m at Coffs. Was 2nd to yesterday's Brisbane winner Hotel Drive two starts back.
#1 Couperin always runs a good race in this class and distance is ideal.
#8 Cash Spinner might have to lead from the wide gate but that may be a good thing. Has form around the #10.
#6 Cap Bianco also has a horror draw but if he can slot it somewhere it will be hard to hold out at the end
#2 Old Dusty's Felt is 1 from 1 over the track and distance and could win at his best but another drawn out
#9 Miss Del Toro some sort of chance for exotics

Beaumont (Newcastle) Thursday.

Race 3 - #4 Admiral Jello resumes in the Samantha Miss colours and will come from barrier 5 with Brenton aboard - he seems to be able to win a broomstick at the moment. Only run won a Hawkesbury maiden when very green. Comes from a very strong female line with dam Demerger being a good Danny O'Brien filly/mare who won an Adelaide Cup in a commendable career. #2 Moher was running in races like the Caulfield Guineas prelude for Godolphin last time in and resumed with a nice run in town. Those two look to have a bit of class on the rest.

Race 4 - #1 Handfast looks like a "put in take out" job. Ran 2nd in two stakes races in Brisbane last winter behind Real Fast and Sagaronne. Finds itself resuming in a maiden at Newcastle at set weights. #2 Solid Stone and #5 Adhere are unraced with city trial wins and come from good stables and stay under notice.

Race 7 - #5 Wutai Mountain travels up the highway for Waller/Collett and has drawn barrier 2. Looks like a perfect race for him. Stablemate #2 Blacklisted and Godolphin horse #4 Unrealistic look the main dangers.

Race 8 - the get out stakes is not easy but #2 I'm Not Sure looks like Robbies best mount for the day and has drawn 4. Transferred from Snowden to Rodney Northam and has strong city form.

Admiral Jello turned to jello when the pressure was on. Saver bet just got nailed on the line by the Cummings, A. horse that was backed from 12s into 4's.

Handfast is too short at $1.40. Just noticed that the unraced #2 is a black horse. Will have a couple of dollars on him in the hope he looks and runs like his old man.

I think the main race is set up for something to come from behind. With these Championship races there is invariably a heap of pace and that looks like the case on paper here.

The bad draw for #12 Clearly Innocent may prove to be a blessing as he likes to run on in his races.

Go on his Gold Coast run 5 back when beaten only 1.7 lengths by Tinto then beaten 2.9 lengths in a listed race behind Traveston Girl. Bit of blind faith there  :shy:

The Godolphin horse looks like one on the up and have stood him out from the 3, 4, 5 and 6 in exotics.

The handicapper has well and truly evened up the Cup and the barrier draw attendant has done his bit too. All the horses with the best form have drawn the outside barriers  :what:

Ignoring barrier draws, the #1, #7, #10 and #11 have the best form IMO.

EDIT: Ladbrokes have Cash back for 2nd or 3rd in the Boot. Spright looks like a "bet to nothing" (famous last words) - currently $2.90 fixed.

Newcastle Races Today - Postponed

Please be advised the race meeting scheduled for Newcastle's Beaumont Track today has been postponed.

Around 26mls of rain fell in the space of an hour up to 11am today prior to Racing NSW Stewards inspecting the course.

Upon inspection, Stewards found that from around 5m out in the home straight (where the rail was the previous meeting) held surface water with parts of the straight very heavy, while closer to the inside fence the track was not nearly as bad.

Stewards then determined it was unsafe to proceed with the program and postponed the meeting. A decision will be made in relation to the third Provincial Championships Qualifying race.

Country racing is 3rd tier racing.

Newcastle is provincial racing which it 2nd tier racing.

By the way, a hell of a lot of rain has fallen here and continues to fall.

Gee, I am surprised this race hasn't figured on this thread... or anywhere else on the forum for that matter.

But check it out.  Tom Melbourne wins the Albury Cup.

Video at  2016 Albury Cup (http://m.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/Results.aspx?Key=2016Mar18,NSW,Albury)

Following these OTI horses can be quite profitable if you peg the right one.  The cat is out of the bag now but he has been a very profitable horse for some.

The upside is considerable.  Next is the Mornington Cup.  That would guarantee him a Caulfield Cup start.

I honestly thought he was going to go through the inside fence at one stage. The jockey almost has to stop him before the line but he stills win comfortably. It was an amazing win.

Horse with much promise.

Horse is 10 deep on the turn. Jockey stops riding it when it actually clips one of the stakes on the inside rail in the last 100m.

How can you not see that?

What impressed me is that he went early and very wide, looking for the better part of the track I suppose.  But when he got way out in front he got lost, maybe a little confused as it was his first clockwise run and made a collision course for the rail - and still won by three. 

I wonder how far he would have won by if he had gone straight and true.  It would be closer to ten than three.  He is a very promising horse.

Champ, the head on is very good viewing. If he didn't bounce off the rail he would have been inside the finishing post. Great watching how Boss handled the situation.
It's well worth a look 8-)

Raw untapped talent.

Did you check you his breeding Tonto? (apologies if you already mentioned it).

He is by Dylan Thomas out of a Spinning World mare Roshanak. She is a half to Melbourne Cup/Australian Cup winner Fiorente.

I'm not across the European form but Hellenic (great granddam) produced 3 English Group 1 winners.

Tom Melbourne was Dylan Thomas' third Australian stakes winner and looks very much like he will be the best going on that run.

He has a lot of learning to do. Watching the race live I nearly gasped as he headed toward the rail - thought him and the jockey were goners.

He displayed no such qualities in his previous Melbourne win so I suppose we can put that down to the first go clockwise. In fact watching his Flemington win again makes me wonder why I didn't back him. Beat a good field and was pulling away from them before Boss put the brakes on near the post

Begs the question is there a Tom Sydney? Reminds me of the Tim Whifflers - they had to call them Sydney Tim and Melbourne Tim to differentiate them.

Scone today

RACE 1

Best form the #1 and #6 stand out with the #6 looking to have the best if you follow up the beaten brigades. The horse that beat Jack's Image, Cheltenham, interestingly has been officially retired unbeaten. Off to stud at Arrowfield??

#13 is an unraced Hinchinbrook stablemate of Artlee who did OK in it's only public appearance.

RACE 2

Already rated these as ratsack's horse is engaged (see owners thread). Best of luck to you mate. I think he is in the finish if he runs up to his best.

Not much to offer from the raced ones - possibly #13.

RACE 4

Difficult race. Small bet on #10

RACE 5

#2 Couldn't have been more impressive in an easier race. This race - most of these have had their chances but a fair few have fair form. #10 selected for 2nd.

RACE 7

#3 and #6 the promising horses in this. #2 had city form last campaign not beaten far by Tempt Me Not first up last time at Canterbury.

RACE 8

The Country Championship heat winner goes around with 62 kg in this. #1 Clearly Innocent was most impressive. Stablemate who ran 2nd (#2 All Summer Long) meets him 1 kg better for being beaten 1.3 lengths.

#3, #5 and #6 given chances.

Good luck if you are having a bet at Scone today.

OTI have bought well.  

I like their strategy of buying younger, less proven horses and bringing them out to run through their grades in Australia.  Horses like Tall Ship and Tucano fit that bill as well.

They have the promising home bred Pemberley on the rise too.  They could be in for a big season ahead.

ATC Donates Barrier Stalls To Country Clubs

The Australian Turf Club has donated two more sets of barrier stalls to country race clubs as it replaces these barriers with new gates at metropolitan courses.
The Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club will receive a 16-set stall of barriers from Canterbury Park and the Cootamundra Turf Club will take ownership of a 14-horse set from Rosehill Gardens in coming weeks.

The donated stalls have been continually maintained and are still up to metropolitan standard.

Australian Turf Club Executive General Manager of Racing James Heddo said the Club had worked with Racing NSW to identify those country courses most in need of the barriers.
Mr Heddo said the ATC had regularly donated barrier stalls and other racing infrastructure such as running rails previously, most recently to the Tweed River Jockey Club for its Murwillumbah track.

“We have started using the new Steriline gates at Royal Randwick and Rosehill Gardens for the Sydney Autumn Carnival, and will also use new sets at Canterbury Park in a few weeks time,’’ Mr Heddo said.

“The ATC is delighted to donate the replaced stalls for country clubs which are in most need of more modern equipment.”

Cootamundra Turf Club President Brad Shields said: “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of the Australian Turf Club.

“Our existing barrier stalls are over 40 years of age and in poor condition, which almost caused the abandonment of our Darley Cootamundra Cup Meeting in October.
“The acquisition of these barrier stalls follows the ATC’s donation of over 2000 metres of running rail to our Club in early 2015, for the entire outside perimeter of our track as well as the creation of chutes at the 800m, 1200m, 1400m and 1600m starting points.

“The CTC committee are thrilled that Australia’s premier race club continues to show us such tremendous support – our future viability would be in serious doubt if it was not for their generosity.”

President of the Tuncurry Forster Jockey Club Garry McQuillan said: “This donated set of 16 will replace the ageing barriers we now use, and help take us one step closer to being up there with the best racing venues on the New South Wales Coast.

“The donation really underlines the support being given to regional clubs by the ATC to upgrade their facilities, and generally enhance the racing experience.
“The new barriers will be in place for the next race meeting being held 10 September.’’

Good meeting at Kembla tomorrow. My notes for the meeting. Best bets emboldened.

Kembla 14th June

Race 1

#6 Reference - claim might be a winning move here.

Race 2

High class provincial 2yo race

#2 Khaki debuted with a 3rd to Raiment and Foxplay. Angland to ride for

Godolphin. Strong form lines.

#8 Argie Bargie debuted with a 3rd to Chipanda and Legerity - form franked at

listed level on Saturday.

#3 Zafina two good trials in prep for first up run. Last start unplaced in

Magic Millions and good city form before that.

#5 Taciturn debuts for Godolphin. Avdulla to ride.

Race 3

#3 Minnesota never runs a bad race, last 3 in town. Claim is a good move

#4 Skyway narrowly beaten in this class could only improve in fitness.

Incredibly has had 4 runs in last 3 years!

#2 King's Tarrif in great form but rises 7 kg on last start win.

Race 4

#1 Black Eyed Pea did enough on debut to be in this

#10 Medaglia Valore - Gerry Harvey horse who went OK first campaign. Last

start beaten 3.5 lengths by some handy horses.

#2, #6 and #9 are unraced and trials were OK.

Race 5

#4 Bon Equus is a Pride Moraitis half to Destiny's Kiss having 2nd start.

It's debut placing looks enough to win this.

#10 Star Of The Ring goes up 3 kg but looks to be on the improve

The blinkers go back on #9 Guiding Star and has form around this class.

Race 6

#5 My Amazing Cool is a half to Dances On Stars and thrashed them in a BM60

last start. Drops 2.5 kg.

#4 Louie Sea Kay decimated a maiden fiel at it's third start. Gwenda has

booked Tye Angland

#1 Puzzling Wonder is down heaps in class and the in form Koby Jennings to

ride from a bad barrier.

Race 7

#4 Suboric will run here. Decimated a class 1 field at start 6 - 2 wins 3

placings thus far.

#6 Stylish Lad's form is better than it looks and loves the track and

distance. Will be fitter.

#9 Hypernicus can run home given the right conditions.

Race 8

Assuming Saturday's 6 length  winner at Newcastle #11 Princess Aria doesn't

start....

#3 Lie Direct will be helped with the claim of Panya. Beaten 1.7 in town last

start. Is 3rd run back.

#4 Brilliant Meteor will be 4th run back and could run a race with fitness

#5 Swift Lady will be helped by the claim and not beaten that far in town

last start.

#10 Rightoncue not without a hope.

#1 and #2 given chances but have to carry big weights.

Be interested to see how the daughter of Slipper winner Calaway Gal goes tomorrow coming up to the big smoke.

Calaway Cruizer is a 3yo filly by High Chaparral who at her two starts this campaign has won by 11.8 lengths combined.

She has beaten nothing and last start on the Heavy 10 took 1.44 to run 1600m, but being out of a Slipper winner, who is by a Derby winner creates some interest.

Has 3 white sox and a beautiful big blaze.

Form is too diverse to rate.

I thought the #4 Parraay was well weighted. He drops around 2 to 2.5 kg on his last two runs in races probably good enough to win this.

#2 Chrysolaus is the opposite. He is rising 5 kg on recent meetings with arguably the two best country horses in NSW over this distance range, Clearly Innocent and Pera Pera. But the class is there.

There are 6 horses who are always thereabouts in these country cup races: 1,3,5,6,7 and 9.

Ladbrokes have an early fixed market on this race that has:

Parray $2.90
Sofin $4.80
Clunes Rocket $5.50
Chrysolaus $6.00

Double figures the rest. Nothing really jumps out as extreme value. Might just take a few exotics banking the 4 and the 2.

In the Wauchope Sprint (Race 5) I thought #1 Ms Wicked Wanda will get a nice sit behind a good speed and the 3 kg claim might be a winning move - a recent city winner who went around in the Ortensia behind Kaepernick two starts back.

The #7 Sixty Paces and the #8 Pradnya will carry featherweights and will be hard to get past.

Goulburn tomorrow. Track is listed as a Soft 6 at the moment.

Stand out was Race 1 #5 Epitomise from Team Hawkes. Only start was beaten 2.3 lengths in town by Balmain Girl and Pepperberry (subsequently placed again in town).

Not enough form in the others to get excited over.

In Race 4 #13 War Of The Roses was trained by Bart when it last started - 2nd in a Kembla maiden in Feb 2015. Was a good run where the first two streeted the rest. Looked very forward when in a trial recently and finds itself in a very winnable maiden. Already $4.60 into $4.00 with my bookie.

Nice win in the Heavy conditions by Matt Dunn's lightly raced 4yo mare Dream Speed in the Mur'bah Cup. He got the quinella with Hollywood Barbie running second.

She is by Haradasun out of Moncalieri who was a dual city winner.

Moncalieri's dam Mystic Chantry won two stakes races including the G2 WA Oaks.

Stella Grande (Tulloch Stks) and Shoeless (WA St Leger) in the family.

Guessing she will move on to the Grafton Cup now? That was her first start beyond 1700m so they have been patient with her. 15 starts for 4 wins and 3 placings.

Great meeting at Kempsey today. First two races have some classy runners.

My notes on the meeting.

Race 1

#1 Portatorio - down in class and claim helps
#2 Three Hats - two starts to date have been good

Race 2

#1 Miss Amajarden - probably the bset country 2yo in NSW
#2 Charlee Bear - close to the second best

Race 3

#2 Banknote Beau - surely today is his day. 15 placings from 26 starts
#13 Dream Stepper - finds right race here
#3 Clipaholic - up to this
#4 Son Of Beck - rarely runs a bad race but blinkers off and wide draw

Race 4

#2 Finnero - running into fitness nicely
#3 Guided - down in class with consistent form
#11 Surfer's Dolphins - significant improvement last start
#1 Cobarchie - big weight but undeniable chance

Race 5

#6 Arabian Falcon - consistent mare in this class
#8 Little Jatz - fitter and close form to above

Race 6

#1 Holy Weeva - has the best form. Must overcome weight and draw
#8 Little Moots - Drawn well and claim helps
#5 Encosta Jewel - Can improve 3rd run back
#6 Ensign - drawn to run well

Race 7

#5 Another Valley - class horse
#8 Bien Coupez - weighted to run well
#7 Sixty Paces - good run last start
#1 Ms Wicked Wanda - strong win last start but up in grade

BEST:

R1 #1
R2 #1 - Quniella 1/2 is a moral
R7 #5

Lismore Cup is always on the 4th Thursday in September; that is the 22nd this year.

Cheers mate. I think they need to be a bit more discerning in the race name  :chin:

Is it a Cup race put on for Trinity College? Or perhaps it is a Cup Race put on to save our souls celebrating the Holy Trinity - The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost.

If it is a race where the word Trinity refers to the local Trinity College (likely) it gives the impression it is THE Lismore Cup sponsored by the Marist Bros.  :what:

FWIW, it is a race full of horses with poor win trike rates.

If the toppie #1 Step Lightly were to bring his Cessnock form here he would be hard to beat. If he doesn't anything could win this.

In Race 5 the BM50 I have a soft spot for #14 Star For Sharyn and will be cheering her on. Form is pretty much right for this race. Drawn out in the Wilson River unfortunately.

Newcastle today and meeting has been well patronized by the big Sydney stables.

After scratchings Godolphin has 4 runners in the first four races so the logical thing seemed to be to Yankee them. Tim Clark could win on a broomstick at the moment and he has all 4 rides.

My old mate Tilly's Waltz is second up in the 6th race and if she can get a soft lead......but probably a little short of her best distance. Credit Card Miss is most consistent and after the claim gets in with only 3.5 kg above the limit.

Have plonked for a rough box quinella in the last - 5, 6 and 10.

First up last time he ran 2nd over the course and distance with about the same weight in a BM 67 then subsequently won two country features.

The $10 appeals as an each way bet  :chin:

T.Treichel on Mon's Gal race 2 Tamworth. Very interesting from the 800 to the finish line.

Goes around in the 3rd race at Scone Friday. I've split my bet. Taken some early 20-1 and might follow up later. Very winnable race where a few of these have had their chance. The Greg McFarlane horse #6 Miss Nellie was a very nice debut and I'd think it would have Thommo's mount covered who is a place chance.

This is a "country showcase" meeting with $30k prizemoney for all 8 races at Scone.

Well done to Racing NSW. $820k in prizemoney on offer for all NSW races on Friday.

Must be some kind of record for a "non holiday" Friday   emthup

Been a bit busy the latter half of this year to do any form.

With things slowing down a bit thought I'd go through the Taree program today.

Taree 18/12/2016

Weather: Overcast Track: Good 4 Finalised 18/12 - 7:30am Rail: Normal
Raceday Forecast: Light rain shower - 23°C

Race 1

#1 General Sepoy - thought it was a beter run than the #2 in the trial after missing the kick
#2 Uncle Rodriguez - nice trial win
#5 Princess Lottie - showed speed in strong trial
#3 Our Instinct - stayed near the fence on debut and run was not as bad as formline reads

Race 2

#7 Smokey Ora - never really comfortable on debut in a strong maiden on slow track - winner went on to run 4th in town. First up. If any improvement could win. Claim gives it a featherweight.
#2 Azcannyaz - went well on "distance debut" and generally runs in slightly stronger fields. Conviction on the 6 placings from 12 starts though
#6 Gladwin - resumed after 27 week spell for 2nd start 4th full of merit this track and form holds up. Tricky barrier.
#1 Galaxy Jak - placed in a weak maiden last start drawn the rails

Race 3

#13 Heroine - is from the family of Golden Slipper winner Danzero (she is out of the stakes winner Permissive whose dam is a half to Danzero). Won her BT last start in a canter. Races in the old Gooree colours. Kris Lees trains.
#4 Mount Darragh - failed badly on debut then has had 4 starts and never been beaten more than 1.1 lengths. Stronger rider will help.
#11 Bonnie Forever - has shown speed in trials to date and ran them off their legs last time
#3, #1, #7 and #5 all given hopes

Race 4

#6 Single And Free - both runs this time in fantastic and a bit unlucky last start. Rises 3 kg. Promising.
#4 Fancy Nickers -  Both Tatts and TAB have this rated on top and the grey mare has looked good at the end of the race in both runs this time in. 2.5 kg weight rise is a worry.
#2 Stimuli - rarely runs a bad race and placed behind midweek city placed Credit Card Miss last start. Will carry the full 6.5 kg over the limit.
#5 Hesco Gold - placed in a highway last start

Race 5

#10 Gacela - very nice run last start and looking for this distance at start 4.
#13 War And Peace - Run number 2 was a big improvement and another who wouldn't have to improve much to win this.
#7 Runaway Jet - fitter and carries a featherweight. Track winner
#3 Leave Ya Number - strong formlines and looks a threat
#2 Aldous - will be fitter.

Race 6

#5 After All That -nice run first up at provincials. Promising horse from the Northam stable. Robert Thompson's best today.
#7 Loredo Hussler - selected on price ($34). One chance in a race of many. Not a split hair between him, Dixie Lad and Lucky Nic in a similar race last start. Barrier a worry.
#4 Lucky Nic - runs well most starts in this class
#2 Dixie Lad - drawn to run well in this
#6 Invincible George - the big fella has consistent form but up in class here and if he lugs like last start he will get rolled. Runs straight he just about wins this. No tactical speed so cannot see him other than 3 deep or at the rear and Taree will test him. No value in that price.

Race 7

#2 Darbies Blugirl - outstanding first up and T/D records drawn the rails. Selected in a tough race
#3 Royal Flush - runs around in much stronger than this usually. Would be a good bet if it hadn't drawn the extreme outside barrier. $51 appeals.
#6 Enigami - Consistent this class. Well drawn and claim will help.
#5 Forever Alone - Won first up in NSW and a repeat of that effort puts him in this.

Have take the early odds on these:

R5 #10 @ $34
R6 #7 @ $61
R7 #3 @ $71

There was a fall at Race 5 at Narromine today. Very few details being made available:

Monday, 19 December 2016

Fallen Jockey Report - Race 5 - Narromine

Steward Sam Fitzgerald has reported jockeys Daniel Northey and Kody Nestor have fallen from their mounts towards the end of Race 5.
Kody has walked unaided to the jockeys room suffering general soreness. He is not believed to have any serious injuries.

Daniel has suffered a concussion and has been transported to Dubbo Base Hospital for further treatment.

Both jockeys next of kin have been notified.

http://www.racingnsw.com.au/article-display.aspx?id=21470

Racing NSW and Sky Thoroughbred Central are not showing vision replays of the race in question so I'm guessing it is pretty distressing viewing :(

Stewards report not up yet either. Hope Daniel is OK and recovers quickly.

Lord Burghersh was destroyed as a result of the accident. The other horse Collumkille is reported OK.

Two good meetings in NSW today at Lismore and Wagga.

At Lismore it looks more like  a Qld meeting than a NSW meeting as the Northerners come down in search of some good prizemoney on offer.

Subsequently we have a good quality 8 race card with $160k prizemoney.

Noted that Tegan Harrison is making the trip down:

Tegan Harrison
    Race 1   Second Bella   Mark Palmer
    Race 3   Casino Evil   Harold Norman
    Race 4   Command Hunter   Peter Evans
    Race 5   Beaumaris   Tim Hurley
    Race 6   Endless Puzzle   Peter and Will Hulbert
    Race 7   Tuned In   Kelvin Hickmott
    Race 8   Mshindi   David Kelly

Her unraced Race 1 mount Second Bella is an early morning market mover.

Race 3 horse Casino Evil has only had the two runs but showed a little pace on the Heavy track last start in town. Might be better suited here on the Good 3 at a bit of odds.

Thought her mount in Race 4 Command Hunter looked a very big chance. The horse is eligible for Class 1 but drops 1.5 kg on a placed effort in this grade at this track and distance late last campaign and  a lot of city placings in the form.

She is riding Beaumaris in the Xmas Cup and he usually find one or two better - is a $14 chance which i probably  afair each way price.

Of her remaining 3 rides R8 Mshindi appears the best. Lightly raced and never gets beat far the $6 appeals as an each way bet.

Wagga today is a Racing NSW Showcase meeting where the minimum prizemoney is $30,000. A quarter of a million in prizemoney being paid out today.

Another great initiative shown toward country racing in NSW by the governing body   emthup

Thought I'd target Trainer/Jockey combos and see if there is a winner there.

 Kurt Goldman
    Race 3   Shadow Vision   James Innes Jnr (a)
    Race 4   Super Force   James Innes Jnr (a)
    Race 5   Gambled   James Innes Jnr (a)

 Danny Williams
    Race 1   Arrondissement   Blake Spriggs
    Race 4   Van Halen   Blake Spriggs

R1 Arrondissement (stupid name - wonder if the caller will use the French pronunciation ) - thought it's debut run was fantastic - looked to be finishing faster than anything else to my eye. A bit confused as to why it is backing up over the 1000m again - definitely needs it longer.

R3 Shadow Vision ran into a pretty smart Gary Moore horse at it's second start but alas has drawn out in the Murrumbidgee River. Will need some luck.

R4 Super Force is 2nd up and isn't too badly in at the weights given his form in open class Brisbane distance events. Van Halen is always thereabouts but 18 starts for 1 win is a turn off.

R5 Ted Ryder Cup Gambled looks ideally placed here. Placed in a Highway two starts back and the most lightly raced in the race rarely puts in a bad run.

Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2017-Jan-09, 01:43 AM
Thought there were a couple of good bets on the big Wagga card tomorrow

Wagga 9th Jan

R1 #11 Snip Of Purple
R2 #12 Swanky Cod
R3 #6 Poet's Dash
R4 #1 Hoffski
R5 #4 Financial Miss
R6 #3 Levee Bank
R7 #2 Smakatus
R8 #3 Sasayuri

R2 #12 Swanky Cod is a big horse who ran on quite nicely in his trial 3rd beaten a bit. But he has struck a weak maiden here on his debut and will carry a featherweight after the claim. Barb Joseph has a nicely bred gelding Prying on debut by Encosta De Lago out of a half to Fouardee - winner of 5 stakes races, and G1 Oaks winner Gamine in the family as well - looked a little on the small side in the trial placing and might need a bit more ground.

R3 #6 Poet's Dash looks ready made for the longer distances looking at the way he finished it off last start at 60-1 and his opposition is so so.

R6 #3 Levee Bank beat 3 of these out of sight recently, and ran 5th in the race Bonosa ran 4th in but watching the replay Bonosa got all the breaks and Levee Bank copped a check in the straight.

They scratched Clipper in that race to run around in a very much harder Class 1 at Nowra on Tuesday.

The open handicap is a bit of a lottery but going with Smakatus who ambled over the line in a  trial, and noted that first up recently he beat Crystal Dreamer at Sandown. Boys Day Out has very strong city formlines as well but a few others have excellent strike rates in this grade and it is a tough race.
Title: Country NSW

Aunty Elsie - Wagga Riverside R7 No.10 (1200m):  with a saver on Smakatus
Title: Country NSW
Post by: PoisonPen7 on 2017-Jan-10, 09:37 AM
Swanky Cod should be black booked. Missed the start - like it did in the trial - but the rider panicked and she made it sprint up to 2nd place and only faded last 200m. Prying the other debut runner saluted in that race.

Had a nice win on Levee Bank but gave a bit back on the last with 2nd/3rd  :/

Today have marked out these

Kempsey 10th Jan

R1 #7 Dark Elixir
R2 #2 Ebony Rein
R3 #5 Clemmensen
R4 #2 Valbeta
R5 #10 Mother's Presence
R6 #5 Party
R7 #11 Dalrymple

Thought Race 1 and Race 6 were the best. The one in the last will carry only 51 kg.

Runaway debut winner Clipper goes around in Race 5 at Nowra against the ex Godolphin horse Motivate and a good one of Bjorn Baker's - probably one of the stronger Class 1 races you'll see.

Baker often takes a team down to Nowra and rarely leaves without a winner.

Moruya Cup and Town Plate day today.

Beautiful town. Used to go in the annual fun run there every year - perfectly flat 10k run on the northern bank of the river.

Doing the form was like trying to run a fast 10k in the fun run and nothing stood out in the guide.

Have put down the Narooma Cup winner #6 Marquee in the Cup with a big query on the distance and the early $5.50 looks no value to me.

In the Town Plate I have #3 Junoesque down as he goes well fresh and has a good strike rate but the $6.00 early odds do not appeal.

One I liked from the trials was R4 #3 McCubbin and he is $7 early.

R1 #9 Case was placed behind the impressive Clipper at his only start and hoping that form holds up but alas the bookies are on to him at $2.40

In the last #6 Can't Find Snippy looks one of the better bets on the day over the short course but $2.20 in early markets.

Might anchor Case and Can't Find Snippy in a few 3 horse parlays.

At Wagga

R1 #4 Zakynthos Regrets begins his 2nd campaign in the maiden having been placed one of two in his first try, both on Heavy 10s.

Looked very smart in beating the open grade sprinter Smakutus in a trial, who went on to be placed in a sprint feature first up. Won his other trial as well.

Is a Congrats son of a good horse I'm sure a few will remember - Zakynthos Girl. She was placed in two Sheracos and ran 3rd to Victory Vein in a Triscay.

In Race 2 Barb Joseph has a debut Monaco Consul 3yo colt called Consoling who won well under hard riding in a trial. Dam is a half to G1 QTC Oaks winner Vouvray as well as Melbourne stakes winner Bolton. On that breeding you'd think she might have a Derby contender so interested to see how he goes over the 1200m first up.

In the last, a bit hard to tip against a horse with a 10/5-1-0 record and form behind Speith and Hellbent so Bitburg gets the nod first up after winning his trial by 7.5 lengths.

Best bets bookend the meeting.

Taree.....

Some days they have great fields, and some days.....I thought Race 2 looked like a special conditions race for horses who are useless. Don't know why the city stables don't send horses up for the $20k maidens. It is an easy freeway drive to Taree these days.

R5 #9 Lady Evelyn looks a standout but should be pretty short. She is a Reset out of a Randwick winner and going back a  generation Boisterous Lady won a Silk Stocking and produced 3 stakes winners including the AJC Oaks winner Rena's Lady and the well performed Vatuvei.

Showcase meeting in Bathurst today (min $30k prizemoney) plus three are a couple of feature races worth a little more.

Very interesting meeting with a 3,000m race and two 1800m rces which is rare to see in the country. One of them is the Bathurst Cup Showcase. And the Bill Aspros Cup for open sprinters has drawn a good field.

Disappointing is that the club has only 4 acceptors for a $30k two year old race and one of them is scratched. Not sure why trainers wouldn't run their 2yo here  :chin:

These are my tips for the forum midweek comp and the early prices

R1 #3 Could You Be Loved - $1.40 - no value

R2 #12 Notary - $34 into $17 - FFS I was expecting $100 for this two start dead last failure. Looked at his videos where he had shown pace and reckon if they can get him to settle.....but price has become no value

R3 #2 Hangover Monday - looks to be only 2 or 3 genuine chances and have taken $12 early. The horses down in the weights are repeat failures so going with the better ones with big weight.

R4 #3 Centerofattention - thought it was a good thing in the 3000m "The Barb" but the $2.35 early means the bookies are on to it as well.

R5 #2 Halberd - I have tipped Gold Ambition as the certainty of the Millenium because of the set weights and his strong city form. But the $1.16 is a put off.

R6 #2 Pera Pera - forgive last run on the Heavy and go on previous feature sprint win at Mudgee - Taken $7.50 early

R7 #6 Cilla - Johnny Sargent horse running into some good form. $4.40 is good value IMO

R8 #4 Motivate - Comes out of the strong Clipper race at Nowra and taken $6 early

Best

R3 #2 Hangover Monday
R4 #3 Centerofattention
R6 #2 Pera Pera
R8 #4 Motivate

Money Laundering Special

R5 #1 Gold Ambition - for the place if you are genuinely wanting to launder some "excess cash"   :lol:

That looked a really nasty fall in Race 2 at Lismore. 3 horses came down in the middle of the field and only having seen it live it looked like one of the jockeys went under a few horses - think it might have been apprentice N. Masuda.

Turf club to investigate three-horse fall

AN INVESTIGATION will be carried out into the cause of a three-horse fall during a race at the Lismore Turf Club on Saturday afternoon.

About 2.40pm, three jockeys were dislodged off their racehorses at the 600m mark of race two, the XXXX Gold 1400m Maiden Handicap.

The horses continued to the finish line with no major injuries while a number of ambulances rushed across the racetrack to treat jockeys.

Race three was put on hold for about 40 minutes while concerned spectators waited for updates on the level of injury to jockeys and stewards caught stray horses.

Blaireau Eagle 2 jockey Terry Treichel (5) lost consciousness for a short period of time and complained of hip pain once he regained consciousness.

Milady Duchess apprentice jockey Norri Yuki Masuda (7) suffered leg pain.

Stormy Deeds apprentice jockey Niki Nakao (11) suffered a concussion and complained of dizziness, nausea and neck pain.

Chief Steward Mark Holloway said all three riders were taken to Lismore Base Hospital in a stable condition and vets determined the horses had not sustained any injuries.

"Race falls are a very real risk associated with horse-racing, that's why we're having an investigation.

"Riders and horses all appeared to have escaped serious injury, which we're very thankful for.

"We wouldn't pre-empt the cause.

I've gone for Hula Girl in this with not very much confidence. She is a run on horse drawn well and with the big field I'm expecting a lot of pace. And the $21 appeals.

Hunter Jack is the early 6-4 favourite on the back of two recent city placings - the weight and poor strike rate (3 wins from 32 starts) suggest to me the the price might be a bit skinny but no denying the horse has the best recent form.

You could find a reason to back a lot of these.

Best horse in the race Pera Pera has received the grandstand lesse 2 kg for the apprentice. $7.50 pre post.

Last year's runner up Pippi's Pride would be some sort of chance. $8.50

Tough race!

Excellent racing at Quirindi today for their Cup meeting.

Cup is too hard.  Robert Thompson is riding Husswick in preference to Bayview Emperor and that may be a tell. It won in town two starts back but the handicapper hasn't forgotten. Has the best win strike rate in the race ahead of the old bloke Fort Sumter who will be fitter. A lot of chances and a rough result would not surprise.

The other feature is the Lightning. Thommo is again on the horse with the best strike rate in the race and one with an undeniable chance in Fabry.

Favourite is Alart in spite of the 63 kg. Has horses like Deploy, Kudero, Daisee Doom, Dylan's Rojo and Upscale in the formlines. Weight i a big ask.

Some good 3yo fillies have turned up for this.

Lubiton has run consecutive 5ths behind Group 1 horses Global Glamour and La Bella Diosa and this race looks like a nice fit.

Faraway Town was 4th in the Sandown Guineas last Spring and last two was 5th in the 3yo MMs and 2nd in a Group 3 at Randwick - winner subsequently 2nd in the G1 Randwick Guineas.

Hussterical and Dawn Wall have both won their last two and are lightly raced and moving through the grades nicely.

The Melbourne visitor Ceylon was responsible for a nice run first up and finished last campaign off with a strong win over the distance.
