This is the 2018 Quirindi Cup run in February over the same distance. Highlighted ones engaged tomorrow.

Evangelist meets Egyptian Ruler 3 kg worse off for what is essentially the same finishing position. It meets Loud Enough 1.5 kg worse off.

Kilmarnock is the 4th emergency with no scratchings tonight so won't waste any time on him suffice to say if he gets a run his Quirindi Cup run gives him a chance in this

Present Sense is 5 kg better off for being beaten only 1.4 lengths by Evangelist and of the 5 runners is the best off at the weights.

What is interesting here that is that it seems to knock out the Quirindi Cup form given how far Evanelist and Present Sense were beaten.

Unbiased and Try 'N' Run Amuk are a fair bit ahead of the Quirindi Cup form if you believe this.

The form race seems to be the Country Cup at Scone.

If that is the case then #10 Try 'N' Run Amuk meets #3 Unbiased 3.5 kg better off for almost the same finish.

But TNRA has drawn awefully and the rider if he has any plan will try and lead like he did in the Guyra Cup win.

Of the others, this looks ideal for #7 Choice Larga who is a city BM80-85 horse, but once again there is a bad barrier to contend with.

Paula Cartledge is coming all the way down from Oakey like she did last start (Tamworth BM60) and the big bloke #11 Congelator nearly won but the 61 kg told in the end. He drops down to 52 kg after the claim and he has never carried that in his entire racing career. Once again frustratingly the best chances are drawn wide.

#13 Image Of Love is an open class country horse who gets in on the limit with barrier 2 and that brings her right into calculations. She is only a 4yo mare and has a reasonable strike rate.

#16 Rockatorio and #17 Collins Street given outside chances if they get a run.

The barrier draw has killed any confidence I have in this race. The prices - cannot see any real value there.

Maybe a little each way on #13 Image Of Love from the good draw at $19.

Watch out if the 16 or 17 get a run.

#10 if he leads hard to beat but no value. Would love to see Congelator win. They interviewed Paula before the Tamworth race and she seems a real humble down to earth country trainer down from Qld just the sort you like to see win Cup races.

Meetings at Quirindi and Corowa tomorrow and I thought the form guide read was an easy one - which is usually  a bad sign  :shy:

At Quirindi I thought Race 2 #2 Elle's Nell looked a pretty safe place bet to anchor parlays.

R3 #8 Applicant might have struck a strong maiden last start (Smith runs in a Class 1 race 5) and was beaten by Saturday's Randwick placegetter King in his other two starts (so the three races to date he has run in have been won by King and Smith - so much for imaginative names).

R4 #3 Bangkok has had 10 starts for one win, six seconds and three 4ths. You get down in the weights here and there are some really quick lines going through some of these.

R5 #5 Pat's Nipper is a winning blackbooker of mine last start and goes up to a good quality Class 1. #2 Smith looked good winning a maiden at Scone last start and #6 Red Axe looked a different horse altogether to the one that had started in two starts previously when winning it's maiden last start. #9 Sons Of Bourke given a  chance with the lightweight and good draw.

R6 #9 Rockatorio (quinella with 3) and r7 #5, #6 and #8 look the only winning chances.

At Corowa, strategy here is to follow an outside stable coming into town with a few horses and I reckon Logan McGill from Mornington has found some very winnable races for his team of 4

Race 1 - 12:20PM PFEIFFER WINES MAIDEN HANDICAP (900 METRES)
   16. Coveian (7)    Lewis German    55kg    Emergency
Race 3 - 1:35PM COROWA RACE CLUB MAIDEN PLATE (1400 METRES)
   8. Belchamp (1)    Lewis German    57kg    Racing
Race 5 - 2:45PM CAMPBELLS WINES BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
   3. Atomic Lokade (8 )    Lewis German    58kg    Racing
Race 6 - 3:20PM MORRIS WINES BENCHMARK 55 HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
   10. Midnight Liaison (2)    Lewis German    54kg    Racing

Race 1 horse is a big chance of getting a run because #6 is already out.

Very curiously the $1.85 favourite #15 won on Saturday at Parkes. My humble knowledge of the rules of racing would suggest that this horse is ineligible to run in a Maiden which means Coveian needs only one more scratching to get a run.

Apprentice Lewis German rides all 4. Had 2 mounts on Saturday for two wins at the big Swan Hill carnival.

Good meetings at Port and Muswellbrook today.

No big prices in these. Think the bookies are on their game today.

The only one I thought was overs was She's Choosie. Indisputably the best 2yo in Country NSW she only gets 59 kg after the claim. The favourite was beaten in a Taree 2yo maiden last start. She's Choosie has won a slew of those country open 2YO plates. Can get $3.10 with a boost.

Port

R1 #1 She's Choosie
R5 #3 All Stand
R3 #2 Saganaki
R4 #3 La Biere Choisie
R2 #5 No Doubt A Lady

Muswellbrook

R2 #6 Wrongfully Wrong
R3 #1 Fort Jackson
R5 #2 Rock Sonic

In the Wauchope Cup thought they could all win except the bottom two.

In the Aberdeen Cup the favourite looks in light to my untrained eye and has barrier 1.

Kris Lees is sending a team of 5 up to Port Macquarie today and if the assessors are right he could well come away with 2 or 3 winners

R1 #9 Faustine $4.20
R2 #3 African Guy $5.50
R3 #4 Face Like Thunder $2.60F
R4 #5 Miss Kyeema $3.40F
R6 #1 Mr Tindall $4.20


At Wyong he has 4 runners. Not as fancied as his Port team but still might be a winner there.

R4 #8 Time And Again $3.30
R6 #4 Kettering $10
R8 #6 Unbridled Power  $9.50
R8 #3 Tycoon Street $8

Grafton Cup Carnival actually kicks off today with the running of the John Carlton Cup and the Grafton Cup Prelude.

Have taken massive odds about R4 #10 Chilli Zaim - remember after seeing his first up run thinking to myself he'll win one this campaign. Last campaign he was running against horses like Arise Augustus, Bone Cheval and La Dolce Vita - I think they would go OK in this field. At $67 you don't have to have too much on them   :biggrin:

In the prelude, this looks ideal for the Toowoomba horse R7 #2 Chillin' With Dylan. 5th run back stepping up to 2200m after a 469 day spell and put the writing on the wall with a placing last start. Ben Ahrens would not be down here to look at the Jacaranda trees.

In the opening race #10 Mystic Brook is an unraced Chris Munce horse that has received sustained backing after 5 trials leading into this.

Terry McCarthy has taken over the training of R3 #1 Phabeni from James Cummings and Godolphin who is 2 wins and a placing from 4 starts. Beat Corinth (Waller) last start at Kembla with 59.5 kg who was placed at Gosford last start in a BM65. Up only 0.5 kg after the claim. I've chucked Matt Dunn's horse #14 Vivid Pink into a quinella.

Early Quaddie thoughts on Grafton today. Wily and I will be having a few bets from our bank which started off as $30 back in June. Has grown to over $400 at times but now down to $128.

Grafton Day 2

Race 1: Main chances are 2, 3 and 6 in no particular order. They bring stronger city-based maiden form into the race. Outside chances given to 4, 9 and 10 who all have had limited chances on Good tracks but have displayed ability in one of their runs. Leaving the toppie out. On paper looks a good run coming from well back to finish fifth but got lucky breaks and never left the rails and was safely held I thought.

2-3-6-4-9-10

Race 2: Two unbeaten horses in this and 4 horses resuming. Didn't like anything after #6 so with #1 scratched have the main chances as 2, 3, 4 , 5 and 6. The barrier trial of #3 Cheat'm was outstanding and it will have been set for a first up win. #6 Miss River Belle has run two good races since being transferred from the Vandyke stable and is first up. Kota Flyer's win was in a Rocky maiden and looking at the horses it wasn't a very strong maiden. Might be a good lay at the $2.30. No claim under handicap conditions and carrying topweight doesn't help.

3-6-4-2-5

Race 3: This a 1400m set weights maiden. #3 Indisputable has been transferred from John O'Shea to Stirling Osland and has good provincial maiden form. Drawn well. #6 Spender is transferred from Robbie Laing to Jim Jarvis and two of his 3 runs have been in the city - a 3rd in a Moe maiden being the other start. I suspect both horses would have been far worse off in a handicap. #9 Weaponized is an ex Waller horse who has had 2 starts for Neville Stewart - including a 4th at the Gold Coast. #14 Serlina is a 2YO filly that ran 5th at Doomben last start in a maiden but was beaten a long way - similar to her placing at the Gold coast before that. The 54.5 kg under the set weights keeps her in as a chance.

3-6-9-14

Race 4: #3 Ministry Of Fear ran a fantastic race last start and is 5:1-2 over the course and distance. #12 Celtic Trail has been placed in two Highways. Expect this to improve second up on a Good track. Outside chances given to 8, 9, 13, 14.

Debbie Prest The Country trainer who had a few minutes of fame in the 4Corners program last night has two of her runners in at Wellington today both as rough as bags in the prepost market....seems she has a daughter or relation who rides maybe not domiciled in the Cootamundra area although at one point Michael Brissenden said she came from Canowindra .......a place I;m familiar with having raced two horses from Red Shadow Stud.

Lets see how they go.

That was one of the nastiest falls in the 5th race as we've seen for a while. 3 jockeys on the track for nearly half an hour being treated but looks like they will be all OK.

Replay is up on TAB. I reckon either the jockey on the winner but more likely the jockey on the 2nd horse might be having a bit of a holiday.

Tough race. I'd be inclined to put a line through #13 down.

That leaves you 11 chances  :shy:

Sort of race you have a couple of roughies as an interest.

#6 All In Vogue and #9 Loving Home are drawn well and are at humungous odds but as I said nothing serious risked here.

Amazing how the two Waller horses drew 19 and 20 in a field of 20. Cannot win from out there I will wager  :)

In the James Kirby I liked #9 Three Sheets first up with the #5, #7 and #16 considered hopes.

R1 #8 She's Choosie to redeem herself with a better ride - and she is down to 54 kg. Looks a weighted special in the opening race.

I was going to say that it was a pure co-incidence that my two equal top raters were also the equal top two raters on Tatts but it mightn't be.

Pretty sure Tatts have an arrangement to use Racing and Sports ratings, and R&S uses the Don Scott method - same as me.

After much thinking about the Cup I'm going to have something on Chris Munce's horse #4 and maybe a saver on the #9.

The on pace and just off pace horses have drawn wide in this and I can see a lot of effort being used first time down the straight to get a good position. First Crush should get a nice cart from his barrier - a few get back horses drawn inside him.

He has shown his class in the Ipswich and Caloundra Cups and 0.5 kg above the limit = "tossed in".

After much thinking about the Cup I'm going to have something on Chris Munce's horse #4 and maybe a saver on the #9.

The on pace and just off pace horses have drawn wide in this and I can see a lot of effort being used first time down the straight to get a good position. First Crush should get a nice cart from his barrier - a few get back horses drawn inside him.

He has shown his class in the Ipswich and Caloundra Cups and 0.5 kg above the limit = "tossed in".

Having spent some time trying to predict where they would be in the running, and after some 600m of the Cup Montauk was "one out and one back" (predicted he wouldn't get any closer than 3 deep) and First Crush was 3 wide (prdicted he would be "one out and one back" I turned the race off in disgust.

Checked the result and was pleasantly surprised.

Just watched the replay and First Crush was 3 deep the entire journey but still won with a little to spare. With a half above the limit, the Caloundra and Ipswich Cups placegetter was always going to be hard to beat. Nothing in the race had any similar form  :what:

The boy from Thangool has done very well for himself. Good on him. The fact he had to take a year off school sick and has bounced back to achieve what he has is pretty special   emthup

MEDIA RELEASE

The Kosciuszko – The world’s richest country race

The Honourable Paul Toole MP, Minister for Lands and Forestry, and Minister for Racing today announced the world’s richest country race will now be held on Everest Day at Royal Randwick, with a new $1.3 million race – The Kosciuszko. The race will be restricted to only NSW country trained horses who will get a chance to compete on the biggest day of racing in Australia with more than $16 million of prizemoney on offer.

Through a joint venture promotion with the Australian Hotels Association (‘AHA’), Tabcorp (‘TAB’) and Racing NSW, members of the public will be able to buy $5.00 tickets to win a chance to own a part share in a horse for The Kosciuszko race.
Tickets in the Kosciuszko promotion will be exclusively sold at all NSW AHA hotels that feature a TAB outlet. Tickets can be purchased at the TAB Electronic Betting Terminals in the same way as a normal TAB ticket. Also, selected hotels will have dedicated Eftpos terminals that will exclusively sell the Kosciuszko tickets.

There will be 12 winning tickets drawn. Each winning ticket holder will then have an entry in The Kosciuszko and can select a NSW country trained horse to race in their entry, subject to agreeing with the horse’s owners as to how they will share the prizemoney for the race. Racing NSW can assist the winning ticket holders in identifying horses for selection.
Tickets in the Kosciuszko promotion go on sale on Thursday 19 July 2018 and the draw will be held on 14 September 2018.
The Honourable Paul Toole MP, Minister for Lands and Forestry, and Minister for Racing said “The race is a great way to showcase NSW country-trained horses, giving them the chance to compete at one of Australia’s biggest days of racing. I congratulate Racing NSW on this exciting new initiative to support regional NSW racing, which plays such a vital role in cities and towns across the state. With the recent success of The Everest and The Championships, the NSW racing industry continues to go from strength to strength.”

“This is an exciting new concept involving the public which will further stimulate racing in Country NSW”, said Russell Balding AO, Racing NSW Chairman.

Lion Beer Australia will be sponsoring The Kosciuszko race in association with its Kosciuszko beer brand which shares the same name. Lion’s Managing Director James Brindley said “The company had a long association with racing in Australia and its support for The Kosciuszko will continue this great tradition. It is fitting that the race and the beer
are both named after Australia’s highest peak – perfect to showcase the pinnacle of
Country racing and the very best in brewing.”

Racing NSW will also be contributing $125,000 from the sale of tickets in the Kosciuszko
promotion to the Aussie Helpers charity to support NSW farmers.

The Kosciuszko race will be run over 1200m and will be run at set weights and penalties,
with eligibility restricted to horses trained in Country NSW as at 18 July 2018.

John Whelan AHA NSW Chief Executive Officer said “In country towns across NSW the
local pubs and the racing community have supported each other for over a century. We’re
thrilled to back the world’s richest country race.”

“We really think our patrons, especially our hotel punters clubs, will get behind this exciting
opportunity. For the cost of a $5 ticket it gives everyone the chance to ‘own’ a runner in a
$1.3 million race on Everest Day.”

Adam Rytenskild Tabcorp Managing Director - Wagering and Media said “Its genuinely
exciting for TAB to be part of the inaugural Kosciuszko supporting our partners, Racing
NSW and the AHA. The innovative thinking behind The Kosciuszko will engage punters,
owners, industry and ultimately racegoers as The Everest builds to one of the world’s most
exciting and unique race days. It will be such a thrill for everyone connected to the twelve
runners in The Kosciuszko, including the Hotels where the sweepstake tickets were sold.”

When more details are known I'll see if there is enough interest for us to have a Racehorsetalk Syndicate.
