    It belted its cart and over raced at Northam last week but they only went 1.57.6.....cant do that running 1.54.....was truly run, made it a certainty 1,10,11 tri and at $9.80, every punter in Australia had it.. Very smart horse the winner.

    An opportunity for analysis provided by the juxtaposition of meetings this weekend.
    Do the horses of "profile" draw the turnover as is frequently touted or is turnover driven by other less esoteric considerations.....like timeslot and habit. I know what I will be on as causal ...... and it aint the former.

    Just comparing the "fast class" race (5) at Bunbury last night (Heat of the Higgins) with the FFA high profile race (5) at GP tonight....parimutual figures only, sans the quaddie.....Bunbury $41.2k and GP 37.1k

    Well Jasper won, and good on the Elsons and Nathan, good work but Major Martini was simply enormous and was something beaten. At least Sweet Maddison ended up getting a run after all!!!!!

    In fairness, a good spike in turnover on the Slipper. Maybe the fans over the road couldn't handle the excitement of the nil all draw going on (after 55 minutes) over the river and have headed back to the trots for a bit of excitement!!!

    Did a little comparing....first 3 races turnover ( WA parimutuel) GP last friday and Bunbury last night ....time and football stopped me from going deeper.

    GP....5/07 .....                   R1    $66.039 K   R2 $50.625 K  R3 $53.431 K
    Bunbury  13/07 ......          R1   $51.074 K    R2..$49.114 K    R3 $ 61.224 K

    So what do we determine in terms of policy derivation and application from where this looks like leading ? Small sample for sure but looks a decent base for contradictory argument to the exclusory HWOE tiered racing model to me ?

    Fark me. If C Hall and M Reed dont get time tonight the stewards need a farken bullet.

    The first 800m of the FFA was.....well....is bizarre the word? Going like last weeks pay, almost stopping, going again, horses propping, nearly going out of their gear....don't think Ive seen anything like it before and Ive done a lot of seeing!!!

    No way should they get time .
    After what Gary Hall did on Warfare 2 months ago by putting a 1.80 favourite 3 back on the fence and not get holiday no driver ever should get  time .
    At least C.Hall and M. Reed were trying.

    Thats the problem with this stewards panel. They have set the bar on whats acceptable or not in recent months and now they have to live with the consequence of having no farken idea.

    And justly suspended.

    Congrats to C Hall for pulling the wool over the stewards eyes.
    I believe that if you have a horse you cant control or restrain without choking down, should you not have to trial the horse to ensure the changes work before putting it in a race again to potentially do the same thing?

    Noticed in race 9 - Carribean Cruiser started at 150/1 straight out on Tabtouch and with no odds on favourite in the race they bet just 5/1 a place. My goodness.

    A quarter of the straight out odds is a fair deal, most of the pirates have now gone to one fifth of the odds or worse...but to go to 1/30th of the odds...that'll go down in the Guiness Book Of Records.

    We don't agree very often but I'm totally with you that one.
    You got your wish with chopper he copped 10 days

    He copped 10 days for tightening on the corner for the first time, the inquiry into his drive is to be completed.

    And the drive of the night goes to Lauren Jones who despite being able to take a trail early in the race decides to press forward three wide into the breeze on a horse that is clearly outclassed in that company and again put pressure on the leader. After a "major" inquiry a few weeks ago involving the same driver and horse, nothing said accept the horse choked down. Same stable same stewards no idea.

    The current stewards panel has less then no idea and need a complete over hall.  They are toothless and trainers and drivers spin all kinds of **** and the stewards "note comments"
