Kingston Town Stays in WA

There is nothing that can sway me from the belief that Scales of Justice is a huge chance of going back to back and winning the Group 1 Railway Stakes, Kingston Town double. His sectionals were a lot stronger than many are suggesting and the race itself was run at a genuine gallop. Each sectional was slightly quicker than the previous and Scales of Justice simply ran rivals into the ground over a mile. Barrier 16 is no concern whatsoever because as a big striding galloper he can gradually work forwards from the outside and avoid the hustle and bustle of early positioning when the field jumps from the 1800m effectively straight onto a corner. Scales of Justice should stride forwards and find the front at about the 1400m marker and from there Douglas Whyte is in control again. Weight for Age conditions are obviously against him but I am confident the horse can both carry weight and run the distance. $6 is overs and I anticipate he will jump closer to the $5 mark. Perfect Reflection is WA's glamour mare and everything points to her running a huge race. Won this race last year carrying 50kg and can easily salute again. Disposition is one that can improve sharply. Ran the fastest final 600m in the Railway Stakes, draws a barrier and has blinkers added to race gear for the first time inh is career. Expecting him to beat home more than beat him home. Kawi is the obvious Weight for Age horse and this is clearly the most suitable race he has contested in Australia to date.

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.
