Ugly

This race is ugly from a speed mapping perspective without a definite leader. No surprise to see Abbasso, Fremond or even Settlers Creek take up the running and try to throw the anchor. Expecting a muddlingly run, stop-start affair and the winner of this race does look very well hidden on paper. In the end after a deal of head scratching I settled on Outlaw Pete. Blinkers went on last start and Jordan Turner simply couldn't get out of the pocket Jerry Noske put him in and so with Hugh Bowman going aboard I am willing to forgive and forget. Django dropping back from 1800 to a mile looks like a positive move. Settlers Creek is the weight horse in the race and should give another solid consistent effort. Pounamu finally broke through...could he win 2 on the bounce?! Trent Cotchin and Sam Mitchell won Brownlow medals so I guess anything is possible.

Rock Magic was the run of the race for mine, especially since he wasn't at 100%. Him and Noske just keep putting in race after race, great viewing. this must be what your refering to..."A Veterinary examination was conducted on Friday, 25 November by the RW...

Not one horse from the first six in running broke 35sec for the last 600m but those coming from the back did. The first two didn't stop but those that did caused traffic issues for the swoopers and that is the price you pay for getting back. Yes any of the clo...

ridden better (i.e - given some small glimmer of hope at least) and it figures in the finish IMHO.Maybe there is excuses :-?? , however it had no real chance of winning from where he parked it.Horse got home quicker than anything else

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I tend to think that running State Solicitor in the Gr 1 was 12 months too early. In doing so, I hope that Bob Peters hasn't flattened him to the point where he just makes up numbers in high quality fields in the next couple of years.

Didn't help any of FAE, Rock Magic or State Solicitor having to get around Bob's 2 100/1 pops who were just clogging up the field. Bob might have harmed his own chances on this occasion. Thinking exactly the same when watching the replays. Maybe they got all...

Agree. The 3 locals finishing on were all big. To me the race seemed much like the Railway - the visiting jocks going forward and controlling it - the local riders never really in it. The last 2 weeks have really shown up the gap between the ES and overseas r...
