The powerful Dunn stable has 4 in and Daniel Want has 3 good chances.

I'll be cheering on Cathleen's recent Highway winner Free Standing who will go back from that barrier but with the expectation of good speed up front I don't think they will be too concerned.

Corey Brown, Jim Byrne, Jeff Lloyd and a couple of others making the trip up/down the Pacific and probably worth noting their rides.

The entire day is a "Showcase" meeting so minimum prizemoney is $30k with good quality fields.

Appleby Sets Sights On Sydney Cup

Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby, who divides his time between Marmoom stables in Dubai and Moulton Paddocks in Newmarket, has confirmed that he’ll be represented at The Championships for the first time.

Penglai Pavilion and Polarisation will both be targeted at the $2m Group One Sydney Cup (3200m) and given the success Appleby had over the spring with Qewy, Oceanographer, Francis Of Assisi and Scottish, he has got a very good understanding of the type of horse he needs for Australian conditions.

"I am excited about sending our first runners to Sydney," said Appleby.

"We had a great carnival in Melbourne and if we could have even half as good a time in Sydney, I would be delighted.

"Penglai Pavilion finished fifth in Treve's (2013) Arc at Longchamp and also proved himself very useful over hurdles.

"He's a very good stayer, who is in top form. He will be suited by the Sydney Cup.

"Polarisation is also a decent stayer, who raced over jumps. He, too, will like this type of race."

Recent Dubai winner Gold Trail will join Penglai Pavilion and Polarisation in quarantine at Canterbury, but is aiming up at the Mornington Cup.

"All three horses will additionally be nominated for the Chairman's Quality at Randwick, but this is only as a precaution," said Appleby.

"We have no intention of running in the Chairman's. It is only in case one of them has a setback."

Great win by Pumpkin Pie in yesterday's heat at Goulburn of the Country Championship. Came from the second outside barrier and had to be used up a bit with the early pace but was coming away from them in the end. Steel Frost goes into the final also.

The Grafton heat saw a runaway win to Perfect Dare beating Free Standing who both go to the final (will be cheering on Free Standing - he has won over the course and distance in a Highway and best of luck to Cathleen and Steve).

Today we are off to Dubbo where the early $2.15 favourite is Peter Nestor's promising late blooming mare La La Loopsy who has won 4 from 6. Anything can happen in these big fields but it is hard to find one with form as impressive.

Can end up looking a bit silly predicting race results 6 weeks out, but why not?

If the first 2 horses from the Avondale Guineas, namely Gingernuts and Charles Road come for the Australian Derby......watch out.

I'm certain they can beat anything that raced in the Victorian Derby.
Good 4 track or anything worse is fine.

Charles Road reminded me of Ocean Park, don't know why.

Country Championship qually at Taree tomorrow - Racing NSW have deemed it a "Showcase" meeting so aprt from the $150k for the main race all other races have a minimum of $30k prizemoney.

As for the qualifier, it looks like one of the toughest.

Best win strike rate = #6 Dubai Sights (37.5%) but has drawn out in the Manning River.

Sky Ratings have them 3-1-4-9
Tatts Ratings have them 1 (100), 3 (98) then a bit of a gap to 4 and 9 (94)

Interesting that they both independently tip the same top 4.

In the early fixed odds markets those 4 are the only ones under double figures. Might be a tough race to make any money out of  :chin:

Horseships

It is a credibility issue when,  the RNSW concept of 'locals only' horseships is further devalued by misusing the language to suggest that there are 'rural' horseships as well.

Running rural lotteries on metropolitan tracks, and qualifiers elsewhere,  is questionable on any Saturday or carnival day -- lets just acknowledge that the prize-money for a few races is excessive -- and the 'excessive' is predictably collared by the owners of the best-bred, most expensive horses.

This winner-take-all nonsense plays into the hands of those betting the most when buying their contenders.

That's right.

Relocate more wealth from "rural horseship" communities to the city.

Attitudes like that is exactly why the unemployment rates are sky high in country towns and they are disappearing. The wholesale migration of wealth from rural Australia to the capital cities is one of the biggest social crimes in our history.

But that seems OK to the city folk. Indigenous problems get a patronizing pat on the back of the head from urban "know alls" and of course things like mining are an urban defined sin even though the critics live nowhere near the mining and care even less if someone loses a job.

Well done to Racing NSW for being one of the very few government bodies based in Sydney who actually act as an advocate for country people.

Congratulations to Marc Quinn and Wayne Wilkes on qualifying their horses at Taree today, and getting some well needed prizemoney along the way which will no doubt find it's way back into the rural racing community.   emthup

Country bred

Being more, or less, country bred, I have only the great affection for country people and their towns.

I am also in favour of 'helping hand' policies to keep country towns prospering -- not least because any reckoning of the education subsidy given to 'city kids', more likely to stay at school, would be a very good reason for supporting the opportunities open to 'rural kids' who tend to leave school and be educated 'on-the-job'.

Where I differ is in the subterfuge of misusing the racing industry as the channel for delivering the first-round of subsidy funding.

Sure, rural racing is, was, a natural alternative for displaced farm kids -- but now it is hardly the most sensible first-round beneficiary of subsidies from people in the bigger cities.

A major reason why rural racing is given generous handouts is the subterfuge involved in transferring the money -- 'racing money' comes via TAB take-outs and not directly from the budget.

This means governments are not accountable for the spending entailed in rural racing subsidies -- the lack of transparency means no-questions.

No-questions, in turn, means that rural communities never get to say what they would like the money spent on 'first'.

No-questions means that  much of the proffered higher-prize-money is actually paid to city raiders -- better horses trained and ridden by  better city counterparts.

No one ever says that 'no-one' actually attends rural race meetings touted as the cultural hub of rural communities.

...... nothing against rural communities ........... only against the deception that is inherent in 'secretly' using 'racing' as the first round of rural beneficiaries.

NSW autumn horse-ships

Again, no international entrants for the NSW autumn horse-ships carnival.

The idea that the better international horses are hell-bent on running in Sydney , or Australia more generally, is again revealed as a nonsense.

Be that as it may, would RNSW entertain an FOI request to disclose details of the promotional trips to other countries to entice competitors from overseas?

...... among other things --  how many promotional trips were made; to where; who was on the RNSW team on each occasion; how much was spent by RNSW on promotional activities (especially dining out); which overseas trainers nominated possible entrants  (and were they attendees at promotional functions); did RNSW give any credibility to these 'expressions of intent' ...... and so on and so on.

Long story short -- local punters do not want 'fly ins' confusing the local form and, given the money on offer,  why are overseas trainers not targeting these races without being cossetted?

As time passes it is ever more evident that the proponents and major beneficiaries of these 'rich races' are most likely to be local administrators and elite connections of the proven best 'winning' horses.

I feel local punters have been conned into financing lavish prize-money that is not warranted.

In the media (both social and mainstream), people complain Queensland racing has problems with the politicization of racing, unpopular appointments, lack of prizemoney and an unfortunate commercial relationship with Tatts who aren't doing very well. Generally it seems pretty miserable for our friends north of the Tweed gauging on what we read.

Victoria has integrity issues. The board of RVL has been effectively sacked by the government. The chief steward gets his front door shot up. David Moodie is suing Sal Perna. The cobalt cases are still going on. There appears to be some very acrimonious relationships between prominent people in the industry.

The only complaint I read about NSW at the moment is that there is "too much prizemoney".  :/

The Championships along with many other V'landus' deranged stunts is a proven massive waste of public money.

I've often confronted you with the facts.

That you're trying to squirm away from.

The industry KPIs show punters are shunning the establishment in favour of Corporates.

And shunning Racing in favour of Sport.

One of the most damning statistics is the refusal of V'landys to publish credible attendance figures.

I'm going to recommend that you and Mair undertake some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to overcome all the negativity.

The theory goes:

Thoughts --> Feelings --> Actions

Perhaps something is going on like:

(Not making as much money on Betfair as I used to) --> (Anger) --> (Negative reactions/statements against V'Landys, Fletcher, Cunneen, Walsh, et. al)

You guys need to break that negative cycle.  CBT  emthup

Very open race.

Markets have All Summer Long, L'elu, Art D'Amour, Careless Choice and Invienna covering 95% of the market and the rest are big odds.

Art D'Amour and Careless Choice are unbeaten. All Summer Long has won only 3 from 15 so surprised it is favourite - form doesn't seem any stronger than the rest of them.

Mapmaker was only beaten 1.7 lengths by Sargent Doakes last start in an open sprint at Quirindi and is city placed. The $26 appeals

Track was a Heavy 9 or 1`0 following downpours.

The winner Caerless Choice (not a typo) is unbeaten and is a Redoute's half to Metrop/Caulfield Cup winner Tawqeet (by Kingmambo) - mare Caerless only had 5 named foals between 2002 and 2011 then sent to Japan.

What the trainer says (Gayna Williams):

“The owners bought him off the internet sight unseen and it’s a long story but they’ve been in racing for quite a few years and naturally he’s the best one they’ve had to date.”

Apparently the early favourite Galaxy Warrior was bought off Gumtree. Will be some sort of story if he wins  :)

Watching a few replays I'm going to back #12 Southern Flight fixed on the TAB - they have a promotion where you get Cash Back if 2nd or 3rd.

That was a sensational win last start and when you think it is dropping 5.5 kg. Only worry is that it will get back and watching that last race they weren't running on.

That last winner, Lake Lurgano, looks to be a mare going places. Trainer says they will take her to Scone - Dark Jewel Classic?
