Bouquet to Mark Shean Race 6  emthup  
Gave warning of the possibility of Smart Punch winning if he got a run, and left himself with time to switch back to him if he did so.

Although listening to the replay, he did preface it by saying "maybe".

Hilt..........take notice.

I have always said there is absolutely no point in calling anything past the placegetters.

Except of course to tickle some dingbat punters fancy.

I thought Failaise was pronounced Fallay, not Fallez
Good one Greg.

Also earlier in the day he called Tale Of Love, Mo' Money

No Bouquet today

He wasn't the only one that thought it won

Sporty

Did you see the race?  If so, who did you think won?

Personally, I thought Linear had won, as did every other person I spoke to.

It's been discussed before - but let's reflect on the fact that racecallers are not JUDGES.  They're not infallible - but they're right in photos 99% of the time.  WW's call today was one in which he was incorrect.  If we fail to recognise that the only numbers that count are the ones the Judge puts up then we shouldn't be punting.

Let me also say that immediately WW saw the replay he urged caution and indicated he was uncertain.

Wilson and Thomas call EF from horror positions.  I wouldn't swap them their jobs.

Here's a shot taken from WW's box at EF.

I'd hate to be calling a nose decision on the fly, particularly when horses are off the rails. :wacko:

It would be easy if the tight bastards that run the joint
a) Have a blue line painted on the track (as pictured)
b) Build a better box on the line for WW
c) All of the above

That line is there - in WW's mind.  Just that we can't see it.

WW's box is as good as any race-caller would want.

As for its position, well that's another matter.

About 15m or so before the line, the caller's box. It was the bob of the heads and the winner's outstretched head racing style. The second horse's jockey and the horse's rump was a least a foot ahead of the winner's  as they crossed the line.

Sporty, I'll say two things...

1.  I hope your wife is OK.

2.  If you wanna make general comments about WW's calling talents that would be fine, but if you wanna "bag" the guy over a specific finish which you now say you haven't seen....I'd suggest you're the one who should be "thinking about it".

It is very difficult when the heads are out of sync , as was the case here.
