Race 5 Taking a bit of a leap of faith but #3 Untold Riches off a good trial, came to the races last time of another good trial, started $1.5 that day, not a lot of luck in the run but stopped as if shot in the straight, today he should find the front and at $4.80 is worth a bet.


Anyone who watched saw the horse jump and was eased out of the race after about 100m.

When questioned, Z Purton stated that after proceeding to the Start in a satisfactory manner, UNTOLD RICHES took a number of short strides on jumping and he immediately became concerned that the horse had gone amiss as it would not stretch out and therefore he eased the horse out of the race. A veterinary inspection of UNTOLD RICHES following the race found that horse to be lame in both hind legs with further diagnostic assessment to be undertaken. UNTOLD RICHES was also found to have blood at the left nostril and an endoscopic examination conducted on the horse confirmed it to be a bleeder. Before being allowed to race again, UNTOLD RICHES will be required to perform satisfactorily in a barrier trial and be subjected to an official veterinary examination.

I didn't see the parade on Sunday but here's the footage - I'm far from an expert but it looks terrible behind.

Quite incredible to watch that.....clearly an issue.....poor horse being presented with that problem.

I agree with the twitter comment......liked to have heard Jenny Chapman's opinion......she quite often comments that the "horse is not walking freely and needs to warm up".

That was me Nem - the response didn't seem very complementary of Jenny  :chin:

She does love a 'needs a little loosen up in front'  :shrug:

Gin, a few in my book today. Thoughts?

One Step Ahead, R1. Joe goes in well drawn but zero from 20 doesnít encourage me to take $2.50

R2, I know what you think of a Melbourne Hall  :lol: . Drawn 12 so Iíll have to let it go.
Also got Amazement but it was very poor last start even though joe sticks and draws perfectly, is that enough?


R3. Ardenode been bashed around in his last 2 runs. Drawn well but also low win rate :chin:

Wily I steer clear of the C5s as a rule, occasionally I'll find one dropping from a C4 to C5 but it's rare.

I couldn't back Melbourne Hall but at $61 it's worth the loose change if you like throwing good money after bad   :lol:  I've had a small e/w on Bella Baby, get back run on type and may have found his level but stepping up to 1400m $31/$8.50 is worth a crack.

R3 is another C5 so not for me but I can't go past it's a 6yr old who's had 11 goes at 'Tin and yet to run a place.

R5 didn't have me interested until I caught the trial of #4 Lucky With You, well found @ $2.35 but they don't trial much better  :excited: #5 All Beauty might be one for the duet.

R8 #6 Lucky Express has always shown ability in the Derby series and off a good trial will be in the finish here.

R9 I'm backing #6 Dublin Star at the prices, will get back and run on, hoping he's the one getting over of them. #10 Drops of God will look the winner at some stage & #3 Ima Single Man has seemingly found form although up in weight here.

R11 #6 Blaze Warrior went into the black book early "will relish 1400+" is what I wrote, he gets that here but is $1.50  :dry: so one for anything you want to multi up through the day.

Good luck to those having a play.

Spot on about those C5s mate. Luckily Iíve been disciplined today and let them go. They are races generally full of non winning donkeys.

One step ahead ran home,  not beaten far as it has in its previous 20 runs😆
Melbourne was wide and breeze all the way. Doubt it will ever win a race

Very keen on lucky with you but think flying dragon may be the danger......if any

Poonie should get plikcone home today in the 4th

Iíll stick with champions way in the mile. none of the the stars are here to thwart him today

Iíve been following Iím a single man whoís pulling off paralysing finishing bursts . Ex Aussie, Sauvestre is an interesting debutant

Stronger looks likely in the sprint and Iíll finish off with Blaze Warrior as well



For what all that is worth 😆😆😆

Did some analysis of the YTD - sitting on 6.8% POT - fingers crossed to keep it going once HK returns in September.  :sweat:

Gintara,

Thats a good % return given Purtons over all return on final prices.

Nice slicing and dicing.

Fours
ps its hard game you are playing - a high strike rate may be psychologically comfortable but not so sure about profitable
