Yeah think that’s fair enough. Getting well off the fence aren’t they? Times in the 2yo races were ok though, maybe it’s a bit sloppy?

Brave Song scratched! 😢
I’ll take those two units and have a dabble at Flemington:
R5) 2 Fabergino (1u)
R6) 7 Star of the Seas (1u)

Hi Peter
Thanks for being so keen to catch my tips!
My tips were decimated by morning scratchings on the 13th, so I’ve just waited until the final morning fields before writing up, so was a slight delay.
Hopefuly you got on, not a bad day!

But of a brute. 3rd, 2nd, 4th, blank and 2nd. Doubled down on Academy considering all of the scratchings, boy oh boy!

Thanks Paddles! He was a long, long way back, big win. Saved a pretty ordinary day

Yeah one of those days wasn’t it! Athiri losing the bob definitely hurt. Onto next week

Was getting a bit worried but good to get a couple, glad Sacramento got the bob. I’m a Clipperton fan, that was the right ride considering the horse’s distance range.

Cheers for the comments! Off to a flyer, was a bit worried when he got a stitch with 50 to go. Still missed the quaddie Thunderpaddles, didn’t get the last leg ????‍♂️.
Steven, thanks as always – Graham, welcome to the jungle.
Stay safe everyone

Doing pretty good. No joy with Hulk, what about Albumin!!

Yasssss!! Well played, I needed it to kick me in front. Worse – I stayed off the beers last night and booked an early tee time this morning, still played rubbish…

Tricky old day, ended up slightly on the right side thanks to the big bet on Super, looks a good’un. Strawb disappointing, a couple of the speculators found dead ends or really hung out in the straight.

Good shout – Scone is a beauty. That Gust of Wind win, wow

Spring racing selections: Newcastle tips for Saturday, November 14

Yeah unlucky last start. Interesting? I’ll have a nibble…

Between us we were all over it! I see he’s off to Perth, he’ll get his G1 there?

I think he gets some things wrong across both roles, but the fields to these races ate tip-top…

Blitzar fits my Highway criteria, won last start, weight drop. Was a nice little win too, showed some gas when he saw daylight.
Bloody scratching got me again with Quintessa, think Yulong Prince is a good bet at the price.

Unfortunately Sound found the other end of the riding spectrum, boy if I had a dollar for every time a horse I back at the Valley ends up 3 or 4 back the fence. You can’t win from there!

Spring racing selections: Randwick and Moonee Valley day tips for Saturday, October 24

Not a bad day out. Ended slightly in front – so many scratchings and the track deterioration knocked a couple of others out. What about Bossy? He’s ridden two winners in NSW since the new season started in August, bobs up in the WFA championship, gives an import the optimum run and takes home the prize. Amazing.

All around it on Saturday, ended on the dreaded duck! Classique Legend far too good, you’d think the world is his oyster. Verry Elleegant ditto, although Anthony looked very classy in 2nd. Great day of racing, on to Cox Plate week!
It’s Me I guess is the other one – almost got stuck in the pocket, got the job done though. While hindsight is 20/20, if you were the slot holder, would she run better that Dollar for Dollar in The Everest?

Alta Oro? I believe that’s a farm for dwarf goats in California?!?? Alfa Oro is probably more likely to win (you know what I mean).
Shout out to my brother-in-law for the heads-up, not hard to confuse him but I can’t blame him with that one

Spring racing selections: The Everest and Caulfield Cup day tips for Saturday, 17 October

Although the new double worked a treat!

Spring racing selections: Randwick and Caulfield tips for Saturday, 10 October

One of those days! He was 51 into 13, I didn’t know I had that sort of sway…
Personal good too, just a couple of near misses

Spring racing selections: Randwick and Caulfield tips for Saturday, 10 October

I missed the exotics, left out Funstar! What a day, hope you ended up on the right side.

Spring racing selections: Randwick and Flemington tips for Saturday, 3 October

He did kick, was a good effort. I didn’t have him leading. You end up ok? Athiri saved me

Spring racing selections: Randwick and Flemington tips for Saturday, 3 October

Ah! The B&E roll was the highlight of my day. On the canvas. Rothfire an interesting one. Barrier? 1400? Are you happy now with him as your Everest horse?
