Her sectionals were super last time Macca and the way the race was run played perfectly for her. Was very happy when Avdulla was back there, even happier when I saw she hadn't lost the devestating tirn of hoof. Wasn't interested at $2.90 but Crown bet $3.80/4.40 boosted late so had to go again. Paraded super I thought.


Gives a leg up for Osborne Bulls with the track being fair to those down the outside .   Good track Scone.

Yes Scone usually gives horses their chance. Today with the wind especially cover looks a HUGE plus if not essential.

Fair pointer to Dyslexic later although she's not favoured by the weights.

Yep fair enough. Obviously have to forgive.

Doesn't help the punters who launched into the $1.90. Amazing how many shorties are found to be lame/irregular heart rhythm etc etc.

So much can go wrong.

AND - they appeared to go at a solid clip early into that wind. Of the leaders only Nic's Vendetta with the postage stamp weight held on.

RKing must get time for Resin ride. Nearly caused the roughie to fall.

Bartley was quite upbeat about the winner In Good Time earlier this week, albeit cautious about the class rise. Owners must be loving it.

I wish Tracey Bartley had kept his horse at home today.

She Knows = $13 was one we dream about .    No place saver either .

Collett was horrible on Invincible Gem there. 5 wide and sat there. 

Nice win by the Bull but that's not Qld carnival form at first blush is it?

Well done to the Osborne Bulls backers. She rode for luck and she got it. You wouldn't take $2 about that though. Other days she won't get the required luck.

Firsthand flopped. He's better than that. Just didn't put in today.

Random fun fact:

Lord Durante (Caulf R7) is the Darren Gauci Handicap.
Last jockey to win on that horse, was  Darren Gauci.
6 of the horses 9 wins have been ridden by Gauci.
Karl and Susan Kennedy are my heroes

Check out his ride on New Tipperary yesterday. Disgraceful. That was the start of my current bad run!

Wendy Kelly fined $1000
She accidentally loaded the wrong horse on the float, so Gibbon has been left behind and won’t run today

I don't want the Osborne Bulls race over .       Tom's special too by the way ... That's 3 from 3 . He's good.
    Rides like that are bad for my Dikki Tikka.

After watching the race again, l gotta say Invincible Gem was a moral beaten. With a half decent ride he beats the Bull.

Has to win around this saucer track.

Le Romain was massive.

As for Redzel, not good enough. The roughie that kicked up wasn't helping it but you gotta expect pressure in these races.

It's lost a length this prep.

Surprised me Macca, and anyone who has backed her in recent times I'd suggest. Obviously needs a wet track these days. Got the plumb run. Redzel no excuse.

Questions (2) Would Impending had of won IF it was the old distance of 1350?
                        Did Le Romain " clock of " when Collett lost near side rein at the 50m.mark when beaten a head by Trapeze Artist? just curious, I say yes to both lol.

Donald race 6. Jittery Jack

Trotted in on debut at his home course of Kerang at Easter time at nice odds.
Stepped up to BM64 at Echuca last time out, and managed to run 3rd to Weir horse SilentZ, who absolutely flew home, and did the same again at Sandown on Wedneaday when winning impressively.
The horse that ran 2nd was Watchdog who has run some reasonable races for Godolphin.

This horse should simply be winning today, I reckon he could make the grace and be a nice country performer when he gets more experience.


4yo by Desert King, should handle the wet.


I also want to say a big congratulations to Neil Dyer and his team. One of my favourite horses, BEL SIR is having his 100th start today, no doubt a prep run enroute to Darwin.




I was able to get $9 thanks to some boosts and specials with three different corps....
Stuck the rails and only just pipped by one on the outside fence....

My horse scratched at the gates. I think that's a sign. Don't bet anymore.

Congrats to the poster who tipped Siren's Fury!

Possibly Carioca, although LR is much better suited at 1350m also. I'd have backed him even over 1300m today with the wet.  

LR was awfully unlucky in the All Aged and I say that as a TA backer on the day.
