Terry Leighton | Ascot 25 Nov

One of the more competitive Guineas in recent memory with neither the guys nor the gals establishing themselves as the dominant sex ahead of the three year old feature. The problem with being a WA...

Ascot Ascot R6. Magic Millions Tattersall's Cup

Terry Leighton | Ascot 25 Nov

The bookies are calling this a two horse race and while I sort of agree with that, I think it is more of a one horse race. Trap For Fools has taken all before him this campaign with some incredible...

Ascot Ascot R5. Tabtouch - Placid Ark Stakes

Perth Turf Talk | Ascot 25 Nov

An intriguing Placid Ark Stakes which, while being devoid of a star young sprinter (proven at least), is an extremely competitive betting affair. Like a night out with Benny Cousins, the speed shou...

I dare say these won’t be the only fillies and mares that racegoers will have their eyes on this afternoon. They’re also not the only ones which could cost you a few bucks. This lo...

Ascot Ascot R1. Amelia Park Handicap

I’m fairly excitable when it comes to a few nags running on some grass (or dirt for that matter). So when it comes to couple of high quality ones we’ve been able to bet on for weeks in...

Every 10 starts without success you drop a class......if you are a C10 and race 90 times without winning you will become a C1.The secret is in the understanding of the word "handicapper"......in the races I mentioned and others not mentioned the office respons...

Well then really, that's the trainer's fault - not the handicappers. And I'm not sure that's how handicapping works in WA. I'm 95% sure you cant drop to a C4 to a C1 based on a losing sequence. Mares can drop a class against the boys, and juniors can drop a cl...

Yep, old "qualifying stakes" was for 2.25 or better which equates to C3....agree the RBD of The San Simeon Final makes for a potential no contest.

Because at GP C1's can be competitive against C8's if they are drawn inside.....such is the pegs advantage. Also C1's are not always genuine C1's ie they may have been C4's who have dropped back after a series of losses

but why are C1's entering for M0 races? When I was a kid, you generally wouldn't enter for GP on a Friday unless you'd won 4 country races from memory.

You sure they didn't get the wrong jockey??? Simone on the 2nd horse stopped riding a few strides out and nearly looked to pull it up, but randy was on a animal paddling at best and if he did much more he could have been accused of flogging a dead horse!?!?!!?...
