.........................none of them could tip sand from a shoe with the instructions on the heel
We all know that what happened today was disgraceful, nationally -- with one Montymental exception.
It is not just Richie-Rich -- none of the published-tipsters in the News-corpse stable apparently have any ability -- or, if they have, it is an 'ability' that needs much more attention given the dominance of news-corpse in the racing media landscape.
........for 'outstanding demerit' it is hard to go past the exemplary performance of the 'lay bets' nominated on Racenet by 'the Big bookies' ----- 8 of the 10 for today won! .......last week they were down on 'Rocka Clock' like a ton of bricks.
The exception to all this huffing and puffing, while your house burns down, is the SMH's Shane Montgomery -- MontysTop5' as it is known
......today he 'got' the Sydney quadrella in a canter -- with another Dollar his 4th selection -- while in Melbourne, which is beyond rational analysis, he had Hi Stranger as his 2nd selection in the last , paying 20/1 + for the win.
Chris Roots -- from the same SMH stable -- is also insightful, but not as good as Monty.
These other helpful folk should either 'write' or 'tip' ---- and if they choose to write, could we have the blinkers and tongue ties removed before pen hits paper, please?
