R5. Amelia Park Handicap - Ascot 5 November 2016

If we did a phantom call of this race many speed mappers would anticipate the final hundred metres to include Darren McAulley saying "Furious Dame desperately ridden by Turner still a length in front but King River is coming at the rate of knots". King River will get a long way back and the question is, whether or not Furious Dame will be allowed to steal the race at the home corner. Jordan Turner will likely pinch a length or two at the top of the home straight and from there is mighty hard to reel in. Her effort beaten 0.8L Benito when sitting outside now retired speed demon Hot Goods was sensational but equally so King River's final hundred metres was blistering. They look the two for mine, ahead of Viking Forrest who is much better suited against this lot of 72+ horses than last start and Gigante who never saw daylight behind Cool Passion.

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. ...
