    So moving onto Pinjarra today , 9 race card , well any decent form analyst , there is 4 of those 1100 races , plus 2 standing starts , so theres 6 races we dont bet on , plus a 2 yr old race ( not bagging the 2yr olds ) but they only have had 1 start each so got no interest in that 

    That leaves 2 races to bet on  -Race 6 im quite keen on Ima Tiny Dancer - no 7 e/w  @4.20, got 1st class form , i just hope its driven in an aggresive manner like the breeze 

    And the fave at $1.45 , i didnt like how it hit the line - in its last race - re the final 60-70 metres , thus i think it is beatable
    Marko, spot assessment of Race 6 yesterday. Loved the way Voaky had a look at the top of the lane when he knew something was going to swamp him out wide, in fact he only finished 3rd in the end.

    Just an observation re the Padberg stable , they have allways done a consistent/good job  winning their share of races , see they got another one at GP last night

    But my view was , alot of their horses needed cute/soft , peg type runs etc 

    However in my view that has changed dramatically in the past 2-3 months , their horses have toughened/strengthened right up , that stable is in career best form re how their horses are racing

    Redcliffe Trots race 1 - bit of a bizzare race - number 1 and fave trailing the leader at the 350 maybe drifted half off the pegs ( very strange move with a sprint lane in operation ) - and the 7 horse ( winner ) 3 pegs - its only a side on shot - but seemed to go way inside the pegs to end trailing the leader - 

    I thought the stewards would have a  real good look at that - but the interim totes - wernt interim for too long - and became all paying

    No

    The 1 just came off the pegs and the 7 took its spot

    Nothing but a poor drive on the 1

    Suspended for unacceptable drive. Winner looked sore as a boil.

    Pleaded guilty and got two weeks. I think that's enough. More than enough for a brain fade like that. 

    I was going to go into bat for Sanderson and say that the home straight at Redcliffe is short so the sprint lane isn't a big advantage. The Redcliffe straight is actually longer than GP. I think it is the sharp home bend that kills wide runners

    Just on a side note - when reading the Redcliffe stewards report from last night

    I noticed that Stephen Shinn ( of Pure Steel fame ) was on the panel 

    He has had stints nearly in every state

    Dont know what panel he was on prior to coming to WA ( probably Vic ) then for a while he was actually Chairman of Stewards re Trotting in Tasmania and now in Qld

    Garry Hall gets $300 fine for drifting off and letting his Mrs roll through to victory  :)) :D :-j
    Its either one or the other. No fine nothing to see here or you chuck the book at him.

    This is why no one wants to bet on the Trots.     
    >-) >:)

    "Trainer Mr J Prentice stated that JAWSOFLINCOLN tends to hang outwards
    in its trackwork, and he was not surprised that when under pressure it
    had shifted up the track given the circumstances of the race. He further
    stated that he will now consider a bit change for future starts to
    improve its tractability."

    Of course he did.  :O)

    Mildura 22 February 2022 - horse leading, hung out late

    Gawler 13 March 2022 - hung out

    Mildura 1 March 2023 - hung out

    Those are just the starts it’s noted in stewards comments.

    As a sport, we need to be better at not trying to tear others down.

    Too much sense been written here, more fun to call people cheats

    Just watched Bunbury race 5, full field sprint race.

    It goes against what those in charge seemingly believe makes for the fairest racing- opting for smaller fields over short distances arguing it give you a better/fairer chance.

    I will forever argue that more runners creates fairer racing-drivers have to work for their spots generating its own tempo so you can actually run on from the back-as opposed to everyone strangle out in 61 home in 56 style racing it seems they want to constsntly push up for.
