He's 66/1 to win - that's crazy, should be 660/1 and you still wouldn't touch him, but he's 7/1 a place and that might be worth a throw at the stumps.

A few weeks ago ( think it was ) the Bull drew the two and headed off Tact Major and then smart thinking by Chris Lewis on I'm Full Of Excuses from barrier three went three back the pegs...after 50 metres...that trifecta was never going to change - 2,1,3.

This time Chicago Bull is in the three gate - stablemate Whozideawasthis will surrender the lead immediately to the Bull and trail from the coveted one draw. Now it's the horse in gate 2 that interests at the 7/1 a place and for third/fourth money in first four betting - he's a battler ( in this class ) but can stick - the old mate Campora - can he hold his ground to run 3rd or 4th ?

The fly in the ointment though this time is the impressive and yet another stablemate - King Of Swing, the tactics on him will be interesting.

However when all is said and done and at 66/1 to run 3rd or 4th - Campora!!

G. Hall running 1,2,3,4 not out of the question, by along way. ( Just hoping Campora can slot in for a third or fourth! )

    $67 and $8 a place Campora with the corps - that's his right place odds. Will be three back the pegs - won't beating Chicago Bull or most likely Whozideawasthis or King Of Swing - he's a fluker's chance of third and a reasonable chance of fourth prize money.

    Anyway Tabtouch odds are $41 and $3.70 a place...there the best!

    Chicago Bull gate 3.
    Luis Alberto 7.
    I'm Soxy 8.
    I'm Full Of Excuses 9.

    Yes we know Luis has improved but what a joke and he's just $41 with Tabtouch try $401 and I'm Soxy goes from gate eight whilst the Bull run will begin from gate three. The game is about punting - so it's important to have $1.03 chances draw well.

    Drawn terrible but very taken with Mandy Joans last win....$11 in the paper which means nothing but surely an each way chance in the Diamond. All Jokes Aside as a rough blow out chance in Race 3 although Quick Stride looks the winner and then Better Not Bitter in the stand and Sweet N Fast for the bus fare home in the last in spite of another awful gate.A watch on Two And A Half Tigers going forward.

    The bull looked a bit rocky in his action over the final lap. When he went through the 3rd quarter in only 28 and off the bit I thought he may be in a bit of trouble

    Hall First Four dividend over 5.5k.
    Bless you Campora.
    Longer priced stablemate gee that's unusual, first time ever seen that happen. The winner $18 on Tabtouch and plunged into $8 on tote.

    Also the fella that drove the horse three back the pegs in the first four jackpot race 2 at Narrogin - stay peg's can't miss third - but no let's come off the pegs and run fifth. It's not solving the Rubiks Cube - just simple commonsense.

    The first race at Narrigon - the heavily backed favourite - very unusual to see a favourite backed like that and not be able to go one yard. Strike me pink.

    Two Free For All's with the Bull,
    Leader Bull - 1st and 2nd.
    Behind Bull - Tact Major - 2nd & Whozideawasthis 1st.
    Three back pegs behind Bull - I'm Full Of Excuses - 3rd & Campora 3rd.

    Numbers week one 2,1,3 and numbers week two - 1,3,2.

    Think Bull - Think Pegs!

    Whozideawasthis did keep one tradition going - there's a different winner in these Free For All's every week...recall seeing him in a Free For All about 6-7 weeks ago when he ran favourite - was fair dinkum ordinary.

    The Bucket List one out one back tonight and gonski.
    Next week will be a new edition of ducks and drakes in the Free For All.

    Can guarantee 100% it won't be Whozideawasthis winning it.

    Two or three year's ago several of us did a top ten driver's, there's one guy didn't have in my top ten, but he wasn't too far away - now he's well and truly in - roughies galore he gets into the placing's and winner's circle too - Michael Grantham.

    Just on another race tonight - as soon as saw Cott Beach, The War Nurse and Eden Franco all drawn near the pegs thought - yep they just won't be able to resist an early "war" up front - not quite sure what's meant to be left in the locker when you go lickety split.

    The chances of The War Nurse surrending the lead were infinity to one, still Cott Beach wants to go hard early - still Eden Franco wants to attack. Can't work it out sometimes - although it does set it up for the backmarkers - which on a front runners track is not such a bad thing.

    Was a reasonable price tonight Eden Franco but she's a one trick pony - if go back through some of the prices she's been beaten at, not a punters friend.

    Think the attack was on because that was her best ( and only ) chance.

    Whilst at it - top ten - no order.
    1. M. Grantham.
    2. S. Suvaljko
    3. G. Hall Jnr.
    4. C. Lewis
    5. R. Warwick
    6. C. Voak
    7. M. Woodley
    8. D. Egerton Green
    9. Aidan De Campo
    10. Mark Reed

    Not far out out of top ten - Prentice - K & J and a lady driver come on leaps and bounds - Jocelyn Young.
    Corey Peterson an up and comer to watch!
    Other unlucky omissions from my top ten Kyle Harper and the experienced Colin Brown.

    Give a big thumbs up to the "peg" drivers who know the importance of saving ground on the pegs and not coming off until necessary ( if at all ).

    Suvajlko - Woodley - A. De Campo - they all know how to drive pegs!!
    Corey Peterson another. They all get bolters home into top 4 because they know their not driving Pure Steel and gain their advantage by saving ground on average horses. Doesnt always come off but they wouldn't be running anywhere anyway. G. Hall another - watch the replay of drive on Madam Meiland - that's how to get to the pegs and drive pegs.

    Last thought of the pacing night - Whozideawasthis $18 and better fixed, and just over $8 on tote. Will leave better people in the know to work that one out. Got a guess myself, but keeping mum on that one!

    One last thing!
    Drive of the night - Lauren Jones - Campora - now that's how ya bloody drive pegs!!

    A few of the boys have seen lately would've been trying to push out on Campora to the one out line at the circle to home - Jones , no frills, no histrionics, no rocket science - just commonsense, can't possibly win, angled to the pegs early and at $7 a place tote - never in doubt.

    Give your horse every possible chance and the rest looks after itself - Campora drive to a tee.
