Backing 2 horses Round 1

Selections

Backing 2 horses in the opening leg of the quaddie with Coming Back and Our Finest Moment getting the nod from me. Coming Back has an awkward barrier and a lot of weight, even after the claim for Randolf Tan but his efforts in both the Colonel Reeves over 1100m and the Carbine Club over 1400m were simply too good to ignore. Has returned a different horse this preparation and Randy Tan has already won aboard the galloper this preparation. If he can get a nice tow into the race in the three wide train or straighten for home within 3 lengths of the leader then he can zap them. The other horse I am backing and the one I am marking as the danger is Our Finest Moment. First-up run behind State Solicitor beaten 2.3 lengths was excellent and second-up at 1400m with Damien Oliver in the saddle looks perfect. There is a lack of speed in the race with Wobbegong likely to take it up and Our Finest Moment sitting to his outside, they control the race and Our Finest Moment will go close. Dendee was backed as if unbeatable first-up and duly saluted when crunched from $7 into $4.40. Barrier 1 is a slight concern and realistically I question whether that race was a true 72+ quality event but she must be respected.

Suggested Bet

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.
