The Victorian Handicapper rated Lunar Fox's Guineas win 100.....at his 13th start :what:....that's huge!
He rated 78 in the C.S.Hayes, 14 days earlier......one run just clearly belies the other??? :what:
Must be swapping the winkers for the blinkers.  :shrug:

Hope he doesn't suffer the same fate as the last horse I can remember with a massive handicap point's improvement.
Annus Mirabilis, a 6 yr old in the Aquanita colours, went from 72 to 100 in 4 months under S Webb :what:
R.I.P. Annus.....you poor fellow. :tears:

Interesting winner in the 2400 metre maiden today at Bendigo.
Beeston Lad, a rising 9 yr old won at his 9th race start......looked quite an impressive stayer on the 5 rated track.....had his 1st start April 2020
Went similar time to the BM 70 in the next race but looked better than them.

Funny thing the owner trainer didn't really want to play ball with the Racing.com interviewer, looking for the "good story".....neither did the jock  :lol:   :lol:
Anyway the horse cost $1000 and was given to the trainer 5 years ago....trainer said it took a long time to work the horse out.
Been a while since I've seen a Sakhee's Secret on the track....wonder what happened to him?
Anyway good story and well done to all concerned.  emthup

Another reminder about the foolishness of "form study" without knowing the surface the horses are going to race on.

Mr Exclusive was little chance on a Good 3 but the decent shower before the 8th gave him a big chance.
Courageous horse he is because he's won races before in exactly the same manner.....doesn't give in.

I'll give myself a rap because I saved my boost just in case a shower did come......sometimes it all works, I suppose!

nemisis,

New Zealand racing was certainly "challenging today" but whether that is due to betting jckeys giving the shorties a "run" or the vagaries of their tracks is another matter. I suspect both.

Quite an incredible win by Amade at Flemington yesterday.
2nd run yesterday for 2 years but showed everyone what stamina and lung capacity is all about.
Looked to be the size of a tank but has an excellent record.....lots of synthetic racing????....not sure what that's all about!

Have to admit I'm tempted to break my no "future bet" rule for the Melbourne Cup.
Hopefully all concerned can keep him sound but I'm not sure he is the type of horse that RVL will want in their cup.
Anyway if RVL do classify him as a "soft boned" European, he did look comfortable on that surface yesterday and did win the Belmont Gold Cup on a firm 2 track in the USA.

Better get the pedigree pages up, there is a bit of heavy rain around Warrnambool.
Heavy tracks stats in your form guide are not always much of a guide at all.

Duke of Plumpton was beaten on a Flemington "heavy" but was excellent on a Trentham "heavy"
Warrnambool is certainly not going to be like Flemington  :no:

Funny how often the Australian speed influence when crossed with NZ mares can leave good wet trackers and some very dour stayers.
Lord Ballina was a classic but Proisir, Niagara and Swiss Ace have done ok on the NZ wet tracks.

If it's by Tavistock or Ocean Park I'll probably have something on it.
Hope all the jumpers get home safely and good punting everyone.....watch out for those crafty kiwis  :o

nemisis,

Dont forget Canford Cliffs progeny if they are up to the class.

I don't mind the Canford Cliffs on wet ground, fours.

I'm a bit surprised your favourite Galileo, Midterm is not going around in the Cup on Thursday.
If the rain does hit it would have been just the right ground for him.....he was pretty good last start.

nemisis,

You fail to understand my tiny bet on Midterm prepost was an insurane bet only and the 300/1 was okay IF Midterm improved lengths from last prep. The horse in fact went backwards at that time.

Dont confuse a tiny % of my overall bet as my main chance in a given race.

Some do far more sophisticated approaches then generally discusssed here.

I wasn't having a shot, fours.
I like him a bit myself on very wet ground......if the Warrnambool Cup was to become an absolute slog, he would have been right in it.
He has a ton of stamina.

There were a few horses I was hoping would turn up there.....some have.

Duke of Plumpton in my Blackbook. Hope the tracks not too bad
