Yeah absolutely! He’s a hard one to catch. Apart from Betcha Flying it was a dark day for me. Great to be back on dry and without bias, but my head’s sore today

Turnover would have been up after the hard day earlier!

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 11 April

Yeah needed an early injection like last week! We live and learn…

Hope you did better than me! Was Raheen unlucky? Verry Elleegant was gallant but wow, Addeybb might be pretty special. Cox Plate re-match?

All Hughie at the moment! With the heavy track I’m subbing Santa for Pierata (one unit)

Big day, going to miss not being out there. What’s your best AD? Another group 1 for Jay?

You’re a purist Steven! Enjoy the day, might be a good one to sit out, very tricky. Hopefully it falls my way. What’s your best?

Both of the imports were too strong – hard-riden way out and up off the canvas.
I’m gutted about Miss Leonidas, sooooo close

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 21 March – Slipper Day

The Dixie curse has struck again, scratchings hitting races 1,2 & 9.
Race 1 – 6 California Zimbol (1 unit)
Race 2 – 6 Yogi (.5 unit)
Race 9 – 5 Grey Shadow (now 1.5 units)

Master of Wine might get a big race over the carnival if the wet hangs around, impressive effort! I think the Melbourne form will stack up, Regal Power is the real deal. Will find out more about the sprinters after next week with the Reid and Galaxy leading to the TJ.

It’s looking bleak (weather-wise at least). See ya Luvaluva, subbing in Mustajeer. Good punting peeps

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 14 March

Quick changes for scratchings in races 4 & 8: Race 4 – 11 Villami. Race 8 – 2 The Chosen One. One unit on each, will add the extra unit onto Wild Planet in Melbourne

The shark was amazing, I thought the dry surface wasn’t ideal and the NZ win was against plodders – he’s a star.
Probabeel was great too, throw Melody Belle in and we have some super kiwi runners across the place right now. And that’s leaving Catalyst out! Btw – what about Alligator Blood, wow

Another forgettable day for me Steven, thankfully did well in HK to save face! Would be surreal at the track there right now but the precautions are pretty sound I reckon.
Quality racing, bring on Autumn

Thanks mate – there’s a high volume of articles and this is pretty niche, hopefully a few winners and some more comments (cheers!) and we’ll be the header item when the Championships come around.

Racing selections for Saturday, 22 February

Will be interesting to see how the track plays next week – will they over-correct? Was a tough day, hopefully back on track tomorrow

One of those days (eek)…

Racing selections for Saturday, 22 February

Plenty of time!! No great value today with my stuff, likely Microphone into the Melbourne shorties…
Good luck

Where’s the rain? Note Manhattan Rain scratched in the last – 2) Vegadaze subbed in

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 15 February

Bit of both maybe? Was impressive though!

Good punting Steven. Trust the system!

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 1 February

Good luck and good punting Steven!

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 25 January

I was already lining up on Mr Dependable! Enjoy the bowlo, there’s always dinner across the road?

Sydney racing selections for Saturday, 18 January

Well said Steve/tra

My public apology to Nathan Lyon

Lyon certainly couldn’t have done worse than Doherty/Maxwell on day two. The concern now is that cleaning up a slogging tail will blinker the selectors thinking on the best squad
