Race 1 - No Mystery It appears a lot of owners and trainers have opted for the footy over the gallops with some very thin acceptances. It isn’t a card which gets the blood flowing. Af...

That's better, the Mont's kick three in a row just on half time and lead 3.8 to 3.3. They've got all the momentum going into the third quarter, and a GF appearance is a possibility and what's more if they make it they'll knock off $alaryaco!
