I know it's set weights and penalties but gee it looks like a random allocation of weights. Couldn't begin to tell you how it's worked out

    Come play with me has worked through the grades nicely but surely its just a matter of by how far for gatting in that field.

    can only beat what's in front of you though! gotta respect a horse in a staying race like this with a picket fence next to it's name like this one has especially from the AD yard

    Gatting will have to watch out for I’m A Love Man.(ha ha)
    Rated 49 POINTS below and only receives 3.5kg
    Why do the powers to be allow such horses to be accepted into races like this.

    Nobody would complain if Media Baron were in the race. I'm A Love Man would be meeting Media Baron just 2.5kg worse for being beaten 0.4L by it 2 starts back.
     Thoroughly deserving of its place in the field 
    ;)

    I purchased I'm a Love Man originally as a weanling for Dan & Julie Love. Sadly he got hit by a car on Gt Eastern Hwy when being transferred from the farm to the breakers, so the fact that he is even alive is a miracle. He was a standout weanling, beautifully bred. That same day I also purchased for them Big Caroline and Prentice, both of whom had moderate success, but make no mistake, this Colt was the best of three.

    Does he go to the front and bust them right open in the back straight? Thats what i would be interested to see. Could be a tear away leader here.

    Sixth to tenth $1000 stake money - might even run myself.
    It's a pity though they just can't get the bigger field with the good horses, there's just not that depth.

    If Not Again Ken runs 1, 2, 3 I'll do 10 push ups in front of the winning post.
    Considering my average is zero, that'll be a challenge!

    Actually after perusing the field make that 1,2.
    The top 2 should be the easiest quinella since Labor/Liberal.

    Bet365 has Gatting 100/1 for the Cox Plate which at least is more preferable than the 50/1 they have about Galaxy Star 8-|

    I think they'd rather have that than not enough acceptors and have to cancel the race

    You do to be careful sometimes with the 'can't possibly win' quote with horse's...it's worse than trying to tip them...many would recall the old Hurlingham Tab just off Canning Highway...recall a Saturday arvo mid to late 90's dropped in and the boys were hovered around the form guide on the wall for the Belmont distance race... knew a few of them liked to back roughies so off I went with "well there's one roughie you don't have to worry about its fair dinkum useless, worse than any plodder going around."

    For the life of me can't remember it's name, on the tip of the tongue but won't come, it was a deceiver of a stayer, but by now was totally convinced it was just no good, anyway with all bets on, they jump away and by the time got to about the furlong could see this thing looming up, I might be in a wee bit of trouble here.

    Coming closer to the line, make that a lot of trouble, the knock horse gets up and wins at 25/1, their was complete silence then all the heads turned around looking for one person, the best way to describe it was like the natives chasing Indiana Jones, as I made a hasty retreat out the door!

    It's bad enough knocking a favourite that wins but to pick on a 25/1 chance and see it win...that's the dizzy limit.

    There are too many of these SWP races. They are fudged to favour certain horses. They'd be better off with 86+ quality handicaps where top weight was maximum 61kg
