Hardest Race of the Day

This is easily the hardest race on the card and the winner looks very well hidden on paper. I wouldn't bet in this race with stolen money but from a tipping perspective I have settled on Viking Forrest. Ran an exceptionally quick final 600m when finding traffic behind Chinetti and Furious Dame last start and should get an economic run one off the fence for new rider Lucas Camilleri. Chinetti broke a long injury caused drought and can definitely go on with it. Expecting Delicate Miss and Secret Nova to kick up underneath him but as we saw last start with Furious Dame, it will take a lot of early speed to keep him out because he is simply awesome out of the gates. Roger the Roman won a much weaker race than this last start but retains the services of one of Australia's best in Damien Oliver. Happy to risk Volkoff because while there is no doubt she is the class mare of the field, barrier 1 is a huge concern. Do not like get-back types from the inside gate. It is a recipe for traffic and nightmares.

Suggested Bet

No Bet.

All bets represent a maximum confidence rating of $100 expenditure.

Of course D.Mac would be playing it down. The way he talks about D.Whyte on the radio, it's obvious they are good friends. I will be listening in tomorrow to see if there is any talk about it but I doubt it, nobody will have the courage to speak up and admit t...

Happy to move on but you posted the link and questioned the-admittedly bad-ride but insinuated it was dodgy. So Jimmy was found guilty on Cruising. It's irrelevant to the ride on Carnegie Express. Ollie had $10k on Miss Octopussy. Does that mean he had $10k on...

All rumour and heresay as far as the Derby ride on Carngegie Express is concerned. Either you have something more than idle gossip or you have nothing.  No gossip. I watched the race, formed an opinion and that's it. Why do you even care? I didn't like...

As long as Gai Waterhouse, Robbie Waterhouse and Jimmy Cassidy are singing from the same hymn sheet, it must all be good. As a group their integrity is beyond question.

Insinuating that a jockey deliberately rode to lose is more than an opinion. It's an unsubstantiated allegation. I've yet to hear either Gai or Robbie refute Cassidy's suggestion that he rode to a plan devised by Gai prior to the race.

I have an opinion. That is all it is, an opinion. Feel free to form the opinion that I'm wrong in this instance. I certainly won't be swayed by Ray Murrihy's opinion.

He went for home early it doesn't matter if ithe was 700, 800 or 900m. He didn't get it wrong by much but you obviously think you know better than Ray Murrihy @Rodent.
