I love sport. I have a particular interest in horse racing. I enjoy final field analysis as well as trying to find some thoroughbred winners early in the futures markets.

Wow strong words from Maher!

Queen Elizabeth Stakes: Can Sir Dragonet beat Verry Elleegant and Addeybb?

Nice write up, good break down of the sectionals. It’s going to be such an awesome race whoever gets it. Definitely agree the different track condition changes things a bit, it’s a good point. Will wait for barriers etc but I think I’ll probably stick with Verry Elleegant though she’s one of my favourites.

Thanks Chris. Yeah love the two championships days. Very excited for them.

Racing review: Tancred Stakes day

Good work. Nice pick

The 2021 Tancred Stakes: Sir Dragonet to run well despite the quick back up and good track

Awesome write up. He did look back on track last week Sir Dragonet I agree. Good points about him still having couple decent runs on a good track. Good luck for tomorrow!

Awesome thanks for the tip!
Yeah Nickajack Cave is a very interesting runner. I didn’t know what to do with him after the issues in vic with his gait and what not (if I’ve understood correctly) so I’m not with him – but his international form is awesome, I can understand why you like him

Rosehill Group 1 tips and previews

Great write up really good read. I’ve got Miravalle on top in the Vinery I was taken by its run at Kembla. Was never really completely clear for running room but savaged the line that last 50. Do like your picks too though Hungry Heart was great last start, makes sense for this.

I agree with your comments above regarding the good track. Do you think Colette will run well on a good track? I have some queries there, though I guess she did run really well in the epsom on a good 4 so may be ok.

The Chosen One could live up to his name in the Tancred Stakes

Sounds good I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts

Definitely agree a weaker field this year.

Yeah that’s a really good call. Let me know who you end up on!

I do agree Chris on face value it was only average. If you look at his lead up to the Caulfield Cup it was pretty poor too (caught wide without cover but still offered absolutely nothing in that race) – then bounced back when up to the 2400m. Baker/Foresman just seem to get them right for these staying races. I also think the pattern didn’t suit and while he has to turn things around significantly on some horses such as Toffee Tongue and Spirit Ridge – it looks like we will get a faster tempo here particularly if Gai’s pair nominate/accept, and that will suit him a lot more and I think he will improve significantly on that last start. My thinking is it’s worth looking outside those two favourites in any case even if you prefer something else instead of The Chosen One.

Great work that’s an excellent find. I’ve had to settle for the $11. Hopefully he gives us a good sight.

How good was that!!

I prefer to watch the Ranvet and George Ryder Stakes over the Golden Slipper

Hi Max, I’m interested in your opinion; who do you feel are better Doncaster propositions from the Sydney form?

More autumn riches await Mugatoo

Yes how good was that Verry Elleegant v Addeybb battle last year. I’m hoping to see something similar again!

Thanks, I’m hoping we see still see him line up in the Queen Elizabeth as well.

More autumn riches await Mugatoo

Thanks! Completely agree. The Queen Elizabeth is shaping up nicely, I’d love to see him be a part of that

Love the pick on Avilius on the heavy. I have not been much of a fan the past 12 months and thought I wouldn’t tip him again – but I think finally back to a heavy track and in that field is worth a go.
Not sure when they will post pone them too but you would think even if it is not until next weekend that he should still get the heavy conditions.

My take on Group 1 racing 19-20 March
