  • Meeting would be doubtful to get through all races going on past form when even a small amount of rain hits. Hope I'm wrong for the club's sake
  • Ok well someone's telling porkies
  • I just did. Said horse proved itself, $20k in the bank, happy with the result. There was no protest (obviously). Trainer didn’t even speak to the stewards. I slept well last night. Kumbaya... I am reliably informed that DMac made a complaint an…
  • I seem to recall A protest being lodged against a horse from the McAuliffe stable alleging team riding a couple of years back and from memory they didn’t take too kindly to that allegation.  Seems there’s no issues throwing out that allegation thoug…
  • Go forward earlier and lead truely ? Possibly yes. Based on the outcome yesterday it would've still battled to beat a runner home though. It was poor considering they didn't go hard
  • Not sure why I listen to the “conflicted” commentators on the radio to look for an unbiased view of racing scenario’s such as the Carvery ride.No matter what occurs they always play the PC card ie don’t upset anyone or the nothing to see here at the…
  • I hear jockeys all the the time say I had a lot of horse under me. Was Carvery thinking that at the 700m when he took off ?. And then realising at the 400m it wasn’t a horse, it was a “cat”.If he wanted pace why didn’t he keep his horse going to lea…

  • Solaia only just went down in the very late stages of the race. So either it is a freak to do so well OR the pace of the race wasn't that strong.
  • Who are they trying to kid with DTS, its not even in the top 3 three yo’s over here. Blind ambition. I reckon Dom To Shoot is high class but they stuffed up by travelling to Melbourne so soon after a long Ascot carnival campaign at the top level. H…
  • I bet there was no complaint from Darren McAuliffe last week when Cockney Crew went 3 seconds quicker over the same trip. Why? Because it gave his horse Montelena a good chance to win. Different story this week because his horse didn't get it all i…

  • Did they move the ascot winning post to the 400 or did p Carberry just think they moved it He found it ok in the last. Welcome to the PTT forum by the way
  • Maybe just use the vision to your advantage on the punt... at the end of the day, the form guide says one thing but the eye tells the real story. Analyse the results/hard luck stories and make the $$$
  • Check out the whip use of Beaux B-E in the last... wowsers if the stewards let that slide we should just forget the rule altogether and go back to the good old days
  • Gee whiz, I can't remember the last time the gates malfunctioned at Bunbury  =)) Wow I just knew you'd be quick on the trigger there @Rodent!!!
  • i think mia dolce may have had a few too many starts as a 2yo..just my take, thats all. i'm a patient bloke, i'll wait until 5.25pm and while having an ale will have a few bob on Safety Bay. Spot on on that run..she IS COOKED. same same the comeb…
  • AND another fn one gets butchered well done on Lording NOT.... :-q To be fair it had an outside barrier and the 1400m start is a nightmare to get in. Once it jumped well, it was little to no hope. Not really the fault of the rider
  • Goes on in a lot of farms Flanders. Thoroughbred farms?
  • This looks like it will be big. Involves a subsequent Group 1 winner!
  • Oh, hang one.................there's a time limit to it ? Yes.............(races post 1/2/19) Yes I had a dig about this over the Summer when Great Shot got into a SWP race real light, then someone on here pointed out the same conditions
  • Those of us who have been around a while have seen it all before. My pockets are nowhere near deep enough for me to proffer my genuine thoughts though  ;) Yes
  • Dark Assault being heavily backed. Rogers' horses have gone to another level recently  ;)
  • This has got me quite annoyed.From the stewards report: it was established that the front gates of GINGER MACK’s barrier one had opened prematurely, affording GINGER MACK a considerable advantage over the balance of the field at the start. Acting un…
  • Bunbury abandoned

  • i reckon i've got a couple of ruffies, i'll study further and let you all know...if i have any mates left.. so much for posting those tips Falcon.  It is beyond me how you forumites liked this post .. 8 of you twats 8-} 8-} 8-}.. Yet I can tip you …
  • No prizes for guessing who DMac had his last pineapple on in the last, Celtic Diva. Not a good look when the caller goes on and on about one runner IMO. Should just call the race
  • i wonder why? its a wonder someone like rodent hasn't picked it up. Ahem. I mentioned it the week after the race, fully expecting them to read it here and then rectify. Maybe there is a decent reason for it? @Tony over to you
  • Interesting to see if any club incorporates the Australian flag silks in races at their meeting as some have done so in the past. I noticed that they were in use at Ascot on Saturday
