R3. Handicap - Ascot 5 November 2016

Expect the Money

I expect the money to come for Distant Memory who has opened up $12 on one particular corporate and around the $8 mark in a number of places. By race day I would anticipate her price will be slashed into around the $5 mark and think she can run a big race here. Comes from a much stronger form reference than many of these gallopers having run third behind late Winterbottom addition Coming Back and Lenience who ran second to arguably WA's best feature hope in State Solicitor. Those form lines are much stronger than the midweek type form of a number of her opposition and I think she is a nice eachway investment. River Dance in my opinion was a better run than Astronomite first up and from a lovely alley can make his presence felt. Not entirely sure how many good runs he will have in him after a throat operation so hopefully it's atleast two. Astronomite needs 1400m but second-up from the inside gate should enjoy every possible favour.

How much better is a day at the track when there are people there? You are going to spend that $20 regardless so let them spend it on the punt/food rather than walking through a gate.

They should just throw the gates open every week, except the big days of course. Whats the worse that can happen? Extra turnover on tote, more food and drink sales? No brainer as far as im concerned.

Might have been a day for tipsters, but the punters stayed away. NZ passport holders were invited free of charge to come along, but it appears they didn't. Kawi being a multiple group winning horse didn't prove the drawcard that was hoped for by Perth Racing. ...
