Fantastic day's racing today.

Congratulations to the MRC for putting on a wonderful Diamond/Oakleigh Plate meeting.

The meeting in Sydney is also very good.

In Melbourne I thought:

R2 #1 Aramayo - the toppies in these set weights 3yo races are always well in at the weights and the form looks strong.
R5 #1 Zousain - pretty short but picks himself
R6 #1 Hartnell - Barrier 8 a little bit tricky but cannot believe I got $20. His first up run was full of merit and Cummings has allowed him some time between runs. Orr winner #9 Manuel also looks overs at $19 for mine if he can get a soft lead again.
R7 Diamond  #13 Athiri - giving her another chance - was a bit cluttered up first time reverse way of going and could improve.
R8 Plate #3 Nature Strip - the 1100m and barrier looks ideal.
R9 #8 Avilius - first up over 1800m should be no worry going on past campaigns

In Sydney

R1 Highway - #2 Burning Crown - too skinny for me but looks a peach. Might start off a parlay or something.
R2 Silver Slipper - #3 Tassort looked a beast at his only start but it was a small field and wouldn't dismiss #2 McLaren. #1 Time To Reign shouldn't be 3 deep the whole way this time so could improve
R4 #7 Seaway - another shortie to stick into exotics
R5 Hobartville #1 The Autumn Sun - Ladbrokes lay. They were offering $1.80 but have brought him into $1.70. Barrier trials have been so-so.
R7 Millie Fox #7 I Am Serious 15 starts for 8 wins and 6 placings hard to go past. #2 Daysee Doom struck a Heavy track first up last time but is usually in top form early on in the prep.
R9 #6 All Too Royal has won 6 from 6 over the 1100m and cannot see why he won't make it 7

Will be disappointed if there are not at least 5 winners in amongst those highlighted   :lol:

I agree that it will be a fantastic day of racing,

Zousain, Nature Strip, Avillus (second up), Seaway and The Autumn Sun  should give you your five winners and all the others you mention are all quite good chances.

In Melbourne I've marked in Cossetot, Alizee and I Am Immortal (a most interesting race).

Another great day's racing with feature meetings at Australia's two premier tracks tomorrow.

I liked these at Flemington:

R1 - #2 Yulong Savings (McEvoy is becoming a 2YO specialist). Stretched them right out on debut in a much weaker race with the second horse Asateer easily beating the others (have him black booked).
R2 - #2 Naval Warfare - ran out of straight at the Valley. You'd think he would love the track. 2 wins, 4 placings and a 4th from his last 7 starts. Load up each way at the $6.
R8 - #1 Extra Brute - I watched his first up run and thought it was a beauty. Whilst I have #14 Amphitrite ahead she is $4.50 and he is $20. Quinella and maybe a few trifectas.

At Randwick:

R3 - #1 Castelvecchio will look the winner at some stage - just hoping the line comes up when he has had time to run past them.
R6 - #5 Winx is the non-betting highlight of the day. #1 Happy Clapper to top off his All Star Mile prep nicely by running 2nd.
R7 - #6 Greysful Glamour was VRC Oaks runner up and her first up run was a cracker. Worth a place ticket at the $41.
R8 - Another one worth a place ticket at the $51 is #11 Nettoyer. Ran 4th in this race last year at $71 and has been placed in Group company many times since.
R9 - We'll go for a third place ticket in a row on #11 Signore Fox on the limit first up. Wasn't touched in a strong trial placing and was only beaten 3 lengths by Ringerdingding in the Hilton On The Park at Flemington last spring. That sort of form should see him win a BM88. An easing $17 at the moment.

Good luck if you are having a punt tomorrow but regardless should be an entertaining day's viewing.

I get my tips for Brisbane via email from one of the best in ratings expertise and good mail it is too.......

Shame we never talk about racing anymore on this site.

Cox Plate was a fantastic race yesterday and the winner was a class above - Castelvecchio looked home and hosed but Lys Gracieux had him covered.

Derby next Saturday looks a beauty with Shadow Hero (his form has been franked by the Cox Plate) vs. Thought Of That who demolished them in the old Norman Robinson.

Warning was coming home nicely behind Thought Of That and I'm including him in the chances.

It will be a race determined by the pace. If Thought Of That gets away with easy sectionals it will be hard for the stayers Shadow Hero and Warning to run him down.

Ken Keys Vase winner yesterday Soul Patch has now won 3 out of 5 and you couldn't rule him out of contention.

The other major race on next Saturday is the inaugural $7.5m Golden Eagle.

Brutal is the favourite at $3.80.

Arcadia Queen - hope she didn't get flattened in The Everest - is 2nd fave.

Classique Legend, Epsom winner Kolding and The Inevitable, who hasn't done anything wrong also prominent.

Interesting international runners are Aiden O'Brien's Never No More and Richard Hannon's Beat Le Bon.

NNM Ran 2nd in a 5 horse Group 2 at Doncaster last start behind Sir Dancealot who is a pretty good horse without overstating it.

BLB has won 4 from 11 and would have to be pretty good to win this.

I'm looking forward to both Sydney and Melbourne racing next Saturday.

The Derby seems to be more interesting this year than the past few years and the Golden Eagle, amongst many good horses, has The Inevitable which a fair few Tasmanians will be on.

Agree pwa.

Take the politics, negative media stories and interstate rivalries out of the equation, I think the racing this spring has been excellent.

You'd think we'd be on a bit of a comedown after Winx but it looks like the opposite is happening.

The Derby appears to be one of the most fascinating in years. Am wondering (or perhaps hoping) that we are seeing an (overdue) outstanding 3yo staying crop like in 1978, 1982 or 1995.

The Golden Eagle for 4yos is a great concept.

When they announced it I was surprised they didn't run it over 2400m and make it a championship for all the previous year's classic winners and placegetters. But the field that has been assembled is just about the best there is - I'm sure the connections of Mystic Journey are probably thinking that with the benefit of hindsight they should have targetted this race.

Anyone who cannot get a kick out of what is coming up in the next two weeks probably should follow some other sport.

A bit of a rest, then Xmas/New Year, then we have the Magic Millions!!

BARRY O'FARRELL STEPS DOWN FROM RA
Friday 08 November, 2019 
Barry O'Farrell has resigned his position as chief executive of Racing Australia.

Barry O'Farrell is to step down from his role as chief executive of Racing Australia for yet to be revealed professional reasons.

RA chairman chairman Greg Nichols announced on Friday, O'Farrell would leave the organisation.

"Barry recently advised me that, for professional reasons he's currently unable to disclose, he was no longer able to continue in the role," Nichols said.

RA operations chief executive Myles Foreman will assume the role in an acting capacity with the board to consider a replacement process at its November meeting.

A former Liberal premier of NSW who joined RA in January 2017, O'Farrell is the chairman of Wests Tigers NRL club and also holds positions as chairman of the NSW Rugby League Foundation, president and chair of Diabetes Australia and is a Trustee of the Sydney Cricket Ground.

ENDS

That's a change resigning for professional reasons in lieu of resigning to pursue other interests or to spend more time with the family :shutup:

Very strange to say you are leaving for "professional reasons" and leave it at that.

Leads to all sorts of speculation.

What could be a "professional reason"?

- doesn't want to be associated with horse whippers?
- accidentally drank a bottle of Grange Hermitage?
- knocking off the secretary?

Barry follows the path set by his predecessor at RA  Rob Mc Gauran who also was a pollie after which he got the gig at RA before being appointed to the diplomatic service .....Barry couldn't disclose the reason for leaving RA in case the GG did the unthinkable and declined to rubber stamp his appointment ..it's considered very bad form to tell the world you've struck gold before the guvment makes the appointment official ...all these pollies doing overseas service why aren't they like normal people and retire gracefully instead of sucking on the taxpayers teats....still India with its smog isn't as comfortable as other embasseys mentioned in nemisis' story.
