  • Hey Jum haven't shut my eyes in fright since going on the Royal Show Ghost Train at about 7 years of age...but when they go into that first corner at Collie it's pretty scary! The drivers deserve every cent they get.
  • Haha that's exactly what I meant - this one has already been run and won - end of January. Luis Alberto will be primed to win it in 2020. I remember last year's race well - Major Stare - he beat a dual Interdominion runner by a head - anybody kno…
  • Haha haven't we all done that at sometime - also so much for the bookmakers old catch cry - "give it a name".
  • One thing can't stand at all is that cut away rail at the races. What a load of rot that is. Can understand the arguments and valid points for the trots, but it's still a no vote from me. The races totally 100% against the cutaway rail. Hoops jus…
  • Haha and what changed things for me in regards to weights and got me thinking was a certain Railway Stakes winner - his second one - remember saying to a fellow "well one horse you can put a line straight through is Luckygray it's got no chance" and…
  • Seen this happen before ( and in racing and greyhounds ) it just appeared he was waiting for them, only takes a second of lost concentration and can be game over. Probably can't hit the front too early on him. His gate speed away from the mobile i…
  • Noticed Lady Lani placed today at $12 and My Mojito placed at over $8 the other night - both inside back row draws. Not a bad spot to be for bolters - seen many races Australia wide whereby the "66/1" chance lobs in for a place from the inside of th…
  • Find it's difficult betting races or difficult to assess when those regular types go around twice a week - they can be on song on a Monday and dropping out of a race on the Friday. No knock though - always 100% wary of them. Couldn't possibly be o…
  • Sprint lanes mostly assist the horse sitting directly behind the leader. Hasn't he/she got it soft enough already ? Barrier 10 at GP as we know continues to do very well too. The horses tramping wide - trying to get into the race - most don't - gi…
  • Vincenzo and Talkerup as soon as saw them in again...here we go! They'll be running a minimum of twice a week for the next year, all sorts of odds and placings - but yep they'll be running and running! Amazing stuff really. Of Auld Aberdeen wha…
  • Liam Neil is a $3.50 second fave later , he sat one out one back the other night at midweek GP and never fired a shot. Was very ordinary - however things like that can happen and might be a different horse today, but on face value on his last run he…
  • She battled away ok curmudgeon especially for a $98 and nearly $13 a place on the tote. Daresay if she could have got behind the leader instead of three back she goes very close to running a place. Was not helped when the winner was a little bit s…
  • Yeah that's true about Kirrabella need to see replay - only finished 7 metres from the winner at Pinjarra.The second horse in that race Shellwoods Chief or something ? That was a big run from the breeze. Don't think has started since. I had Kirrab…
  • Not sure if anyone saw the first and second take of the race at Albany the other night. Was amazed at the amount of support that came for Marrilyn Said after the first attempt - she looked in a bit of trouble early take one, couldnt lead and had ru…
  • Am all for stands stg and was happy with one of them last night - anchored JJs Smashwater Jack for third or fourth in first four betting with the main hopes Oneonthewood etc. Didn't realise G. Hall Jnr was driving so then thought might put an extr…
  • VK not sure if saw Luis Alberto at Albany - was very well driven and looked in control but just on the point of the corner swinging for home - swear he had a think about it and thought was going to turn it up but Jocelyn Young was having none of tha…
  • Kirrabella and Billy Bong were second and third favourites - that says something. Also not forgetting bookmakers throughout the universe underprice every gate one runner. Often take on gate one favourites in NZ - mostly massive size tracks - 4 or…
  • Somehow missed seeing the Albany Cup last week - the top three in the weights were Red Army, Prying Tom and The Big Show - got first and third there. Even in the 1400 metre plus races - can only just remember and been told about him - but there wa…
  • If he ever gets the very slow Three Kings into the placings again - then will say I've seen everything. Sat three back the pegs Friday night and shanghaied back faster than a dropped skool bag on a Friday afternoon. Drove something today at Willia…
  • Perfect drive - a placing at Pinjarra another at GP and a win at Williams in under a week - well done Peter Tilbrook - backed up by three outstanding drives. His ability to get ( average ) horses pinging away from the stand is uncanny. Not bad fr…
  • Sort of what I'm saying too is that in a Melbourne Cup horses like Yogi ( he just missed a run ) and Venguer Masque there poorly in at the weights even though down the bottom of the scale - there running against the best in the world - those 2 are h…
  • It's only theory, ( and just the stayer type of events ) but apart from Yogi and Venguer Masque recently, we have the top weighted Who Shot The Barman win the Sydney Cup at about 16/1, an "out of form" Star Exhibit very close to top weight win the…
  • Too true Hash hence the $2 by $10. The examples with Yogi and Venguer Masque - both were around $8 - $10 - and exactly what your saying is correct - they were good chances at the weights despite carrying number one saddlecloths considering the qual…
  • Just noticed still has a message that "fixed odds unavailable" so perhaps not up and running after all.
  • Tab fixed odds back on board, still at withering heights % wise though. Non competitive tote ( it's gone downhill - even Tabcorp admit that ) and corporates ( look at Racing.Com when they have the market % down the bottom of screen ) that when on…
  • Have to stick to the theory ( have a look at Yogi and Venguer Masque in Melbourne recently ). Doesn't always work out of course, but staying with the system and going the top weight Brothers Keeper. Small the win ($2) and huge the place ($10) b-(
  • Did you notice in the Winx race - with all the stablemates who ran 3rd and 4th - Egg Tart and Patrick Erin - his two longest priced runners! Can't believe that first four paid $224.40 - it's floored me. Back to Jim Taylor - very few have a rule of…
  • Just read on another site - the ones who did get on before the Friday breakdown - still not paid out. What a joke. Someone also said - "WA Tab for sale, needs TLC, make an offer".
  • Another question - the Tabtouch fixed odds haven't been available since Friday - wonder what is going on ? How could it possibly be down for that long and something so simple have gone awry ? There the best!
