Although he's one of my favourite horses going around at the moment, I fortunately avoided him today too. The heavy track and also the 3500m worried me too. Seems like a horse who should be kept to 3200m hurdle races. Still ran bravely today though, good on you EZClap

Should be out to his pet distance next time ... might run a place again!Tongue

Glad he did today - I recovered a big chunk of recent losses with a nice piece of the F4 - having a winning year!!!LOL

I watched the replay and kept an eye only on him in the run.. you can see him flatten his ears on the turn. He really puts in.. the way he finished off you'd wanna keep him fresh and around 1800m. He really does love Flemington
Now having passed 1000 posts I feel you are all so much the wiser for my having said... stuff!

For a horse that's only won 6 races, he has a huge amount of prizemoney

The handicappers have never been his friend! ... he has always been classy, but just off the best as a 3yo and pays for his consistency.

He has simply never had a run of outs, so he never drops his rating ... love to have a stable full just like him!

Bit like the Coalition I'd suggest Doc.

Has performed well in strong company but despite trying hard is continually hampered by both dead weight and lack of initiative from the pilot.  Wink

LOL

Sorry, but I have to disagree SC (you knew I would) ... if you watch the race, the "pilot" followed the "favourite" the whole race - it was very much a "populist" ride! ... you could be right about the Libs, may be held back by the dead weight but always finish in the top 2 ... they might even run 2nd at the "Championships" in 2019, behind that promising but precocious filly "Pauline"! ... don't see anything else that is likely to nominate for that "race", that has any winning form, or any upside (the jockey they have on the current favourite is a dead weight himself, and is odds on to butcher their chances once again!) ...Tongue 

Extra Zero for PM!Thumbs Up

What a grand old horse.

Was watching a replay the other night of of Starspangledbanners Caulfield Guineas win on Racing.com and there, between Manhattan Rain (3rd) and So You Think (5th) is Extra Zero. Reckon he went on to run 2nd in the Derby that Spring as well.

Amazing to see him still going around.

Is that official? I'll throw some money on him to WIN. Thought he might win last start and was thinking of putting a bit on him, but luckily let head rule over heart. If it's his last start tomorrow I'll gladly lose some money on a good horse.

Price was a gift, knew he'd been set for this race as number 100

Figured he'd run well but didn't expect him to fly like that
