4. No.11 - 79
5. No.8 - 78
6. No.7 - 78
Add ins for any scratchings are No.12 & No.3.
Recommended Bet: $50 win No.10 Jaameh
Precedent: No.11 Northwest Passage

Coolmore Stud Stakes

1. No.2 Zousain - 83. The reason he is not at 90 is the straight, but that should hold no problems. Like him coming back from the 1400m, drawn to get cover and can have the last shot at them late.
2. No.4 Lean Mean Machine - 83. Not much between him and his stablemate. I think the freshen up since the Rose, benefits him, as his fresh record is good. Might handle the wet better than others but the good track will hold no problems. Looked good in the work with Zousain down the straight.
3. No.1 Written By - 79. Form is good but steps up a level here. Again has not run down the straight so that is an unknown.
4. No.10 Sunlight - 78. Run was good in high quality group 1. Carries thee lighter weight here and has run well down the straight before, although I do prefer her around a bend.
5. No.6 Sesar - 76. Top quality Quenslander and his racing style is that of a galloper who should love the straight. Can run high grade closing sectionals, and if they go hard early here could do what Merchant Navy did last year.
6. No.8 Diplomatico - 73. His form is against the next level down, but he looks an improver and can definitely grab a top four spot.
Add ins for any scratchings are No.3 & No.9.
Recommended bet: $30 win No.2 Zousain
                 $10 each Way No.6 Sesar
Precedent: No.4 Lean Mean Machine

Empire Rose Stakes.

1. No.3 Shillelagh - 90. Her last two runs in open group 1 company have been sensational. Won the Cantala this day last year, and she is in far superior form. Is well placed at the weights and loves the mile. Close to a place special!
2. No.15 Amphitrite - 87. Good win course and distance two back, and then progressed to win at group 1 level last time out. That form was a little down last week when Mystic Journey defeated the runner up, but this fillies own efforts have been good.
3. No.13 Oohood - 86. Broke her maiden two back. Missed the boat last start, but still good late, on a track where her racing style lends itself to being unlucky. Here on the big, flat track, could see her reach her best.
4. No.2 Invincebella - 80. Still has questions at a strong mile, but should do no work early, and have a last shot at them late. No surprise to see her win.
5. No.1 I Am A Star - 80. Going well and has drawn to get a lovely run on the speed, if not in front. Right in the race.
6. No.4 Eckstein - 79. Nothing between her and Aloisia and Kenedna, but her draw just sees her get a lovely run. Went close in this last year and her last win and the run at Randwick, were good pipe openers for this.
Add ins for any scratchings are No.7 & No.5.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.3 Shillelagh
                 $10 each way No.7 Kenedna
Precedent: No.15 Amphitrite

VRC Derby

1. No.2 Aramayo - 84. Good run two back. After 100m last week you knew you were not going to collect, when the rider decided to get back on a track wherr that was not a good idea. Comes in, to gate 8, if the two emergencies do not run and has the winning jockey from last year on board.   
2. No.10 Chapada - 82. Top effort last start in a race where the leader got away with murder. Should be a more solid pace here and if they can come from off the speed, he is right in this.
3. No.4 Stars Of Carrum - 80. No fluke in this horses win last week. His form before that was good, without winning, he will eat the 2500m, and the harder the speed the better. Great top four hope.
4. No.1 Thinkin Big - 80. No doubt he is a quality horse, but if the riders in this race allow him to get away with what they did at Caulfield, they should all be suspended. Not saying he can't win, but a $3 fav is a bit too short for me.
5. No.5 Home Ground - 77. Won for us at Geelong, and it was strong win, but he might be a top four hope here. If it was to become a real staying test, at least you know he will keep coming.
6. No.11 Sikorsky - 76. Going well and forget last start, where he and everyone else had no chance of beating the winner. Good run two back here at headquarters and can run top four.
Add ins for any scratchings are No.6 & No.7.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.2 Aramayo
                 $10 win No.4 Stars Of Carrum
                 $10 win No.10 Chapada
Precedent: No.10 Chapada

Kennedy Mile.

1. No.4 Land Of Plenty - 87. Ticks all the boxes, distance, track and weight. Drawn to get a lovely run and will go close if he does not win.
2. No.11 Cliffs Edge - 85. Good win at wfa last week. drops to 52 kilos, will either lead or outside the lead, and give a great sight, now he is fit.
3. No.1 Hartnell - 85. Just has to give a few good gallopers weight here. Loves the track and his mile form this prep is looking terrific. Top weights do not have a great record here, but is a top four hope.
4. No.17 Best Of Days - 79. To my eye he loomed up last start to go straight past them, and he just was one paced late. I think the drop to the mile is a good move, should get good speed on here and drawn to get the run of race. Just needs luck late to get a crack at them.
5. No.2 Le Romaine - 78. Going very well. Last run at 1600m a great second to Winx in the George Main. That form is good enough for here, and should be cherry ripe fitness wise.
6. No.10 Siege Of Quebec - 77. WFA just found him out late last week. Back down to a winnable weight, is in good form and if he can get a good run from the gate, he should be in the finish.

Add ins for any scratchings are No.8 & No.16.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.4 Land Of Plenty
                 $20 win No.11 Cliff's Edge
Precedent: No.10 Siege Of Quebec

Begonia Belle Stakes.

1. No.4 - 87
2. No.9 - 85
3. No.7 - 80
4. No.6 - 78
5. No.1 - 76
6. No.2 - 75

Thanks and BOL with your investments Voyager.  Thumbs Up

She Knows is a big blow-out in the last imo as you've identified, dependent given her marble on whether the inner or outer rail is best.  At least we'll get a hint following the Coolmore.

That is correct Second. The straight races are very much dependant, on where they come, down the outside, the inside or down the middle.

The last is such a good race, that I would not be surprised if the winner backed up next Saturday in the Darley, because some of these have form around Spright, who has run well at group 1 level, and Snitty Kitty ran well last start behind Ball Of Muscle and Spirit Of Valour, and She Knows and I Am Excited have run well down the straight in the past.

Good addition to the Derby day action!

Okay here is the full preview of the cup.

Melbourne Cup.

1. Best Solution - 86. Caulfield Cup win was strong. Up to 200m for first time, carrying a weight which has not won a cup for over 40 years and will need a Cosgrave special. Can not win, but top four hope.

2. The CliffsofMoher - 81. Good run at Caulfield, but for me this is a afterthought. Has a few racing manner flaws as he has wanted to hang in at his two Australian starts, but if he can get a cosy run during the race he could be a top four chance. Can not win!

3. Magic Circle - 88. His two wins this year have been, to put it bluntly, outstanding. Drops nicely in weight, has been training well at Werribee, has a top quality jockey on, who if he rides this galloper exactly like he rode Shocking, can win his third cup.

4. Chestnut Coat - 78. I usually do not take on the Japanese, but it looks like they are still sending out below pqr horses. If the track is rock hard, I will add him to my wide tri's and first fours but no chance he wins.

5. Muntahaa - 80. Have not really had him at my top end, in ratings. On thier last meeting, Best Solution has him covered, he is trying 3200m for the first time, and no horse has won from the Ebor since that race. Unless he has done a Yucatan improvement wise, he is top ten hope at best for mine.

6. Sound Check - 82. Disappointing in the Caulfield Cup, but this is one international who wants a truly run race. Good effort behind Best Solution at his run before Caulfield, his win in Germany at 3200m was a very very nice win and he is the best winning chance, of those at $21 or longer. Needs a good strong speed!

7. Who Shot The barman - 80. Can not win, but he ticks a lot of boxes for top four players. Is in a similar position to Prince Of Penzance where he ran behind a track record winner, and meets hm better at weights. How on earth he is $71 with some operator is quite stupid!

8. Ace High - 79. He has got the staying qualities to win a race of this quality, but he is weighted very close to some good older horses. At least you know he is fit going into the race, he loves Flemington and he draws to get every hope. I can not see him winning but top six hope.

9. Marmelo - 85. He is one international I like having no runs before the cup. Ran a cracking race at Caulfield last year, and I feel that just took a bit out of him for the cup last year. Comes here in good form, althougyh in group 2 level, but with Bowman sticking he goes into the top winning hopes.

10. Avilius - 86. Has done nothing wrong! Nice effort in the Plate behind her majesty, and he drops nicely in weight. Adds to Godolphins strong arsenal here, and a definite winning hope, if he can run the 3200.

11. Yucatan - 86. Okay let me just say, that win at Caulfield was OOOOMMMMMGGGG!!!!!! On that run, he just wins this race, but stayers do have a habit of dropping at thier next start after a career best performance. On his european form you would say no chance, but looks like he has taken to Australia like a english backpacker at Bondi

12. Auvray - 69. Not sure how he got here, but good luck to connections.

13. Finche - 74. Form is okay, but on his run at Geelong he is about ten ratings points away from a place. Does drop in weight, but maybe next years race is his target.

14. Red Cardinal - 72. Was going okay, until that Valley run. Maybe go better here at Flemington, but for me he would need a downpour, just to be a top ten hope.

15. Vengeur Masque - 75. I like the horse, but on what he has shown he is a group 3 maybe a group 2 stayer. Should love the 3200m, and does go well at Flemington, but he meets some quality gallopers here. Maybe exotic player.

16. Ventura Storm - 75. Here we go. The same situation that we had with Prince Of Penzance and The United States. The Lloyd runner runs the track record in the MV Gold Cup, and POP runs second, and everyone, including myself concentrates on the winner. On the MV Gold Cup runs and the Sydney Cup runs, where Ventura Storm caught a cold as WSTB went straight past him, there is no way this horse beats WSTB home!

17. A Prince Of Arran - 80. I was hoping he did not have to run on saturday, but that is what we have to deal with. Has good form and I do not think he can win, but he can run top four.

18. Nakeeta - 77. He was our longshot last year, but I am not sure what he is doing here this year. Ran well last year, but he was going into the race in superior form. No.

19. Sir Charles Road - 74. Thought he was coming on okay, but his last run says he is struggling. No.

20. Zacada - 69. If the predicted rain comes and the track gets into Van Der Hum heavy, maybe a top four hope. No.

21. Runaway - 79. Tough win at Geelong, but all the markers for that race say it was a few levels below what is required here. I did like his St Leger win here earlier in the year, but that has not been a form guide for this race for about twenty five years, in fact my records show that Tawriific is the last horse to run in this race and win the cup. Might stick on for a top half finish but no hope of winning!

22. Youngstar - 80. I have looked at hr Caulfield Cup run, and the way the race panned out, I thought her run was actually acceptable. She does possess a good finish, and if Craig Williams can get her to settle, and do no work for the first 2000m and get a good cart into the race from something, she can go close.

23. Cross Current - 82. Form is okay. His win at Goodwood was good, and he does have the Macmeister on board. Can see him getting a good run and has got a winning hope.

24. Rostropovich - 81. Only a length off Avilius in the Cox Plate. If that run is to be trusted then to me he is a distance risk as he was not settling that well in a fast run race. Maybe he was fresh and he needed the run, but for mine he can not beat Avilius home, and so there for he is a non winning, top four hope at best.

So after all that here are the ratings.

1. No.3 Magic Circle - 88.
2. No.1 Best Solution - 86.
3. No.11 Yucatan - 86.
4. No.10 Avilius - 84.
5. No.5 Muntahaa - 84.
6. No.9 Marmelo - 83.
Add ins for any scratchings are No.6 & No.23. For the record I will be adding 2-7-17-22 to my wide exotics.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.3 Magic Circle
                 $10 each way No.6 Sound Check
Precedent: No.17 A Prince Of Arran

I would like to wish, everyone, the most sincere best of luck and lots of success with all your investments on cup day!

Precedent: No.3 Real Success

VRC Oaks.

1. No.1 Amphitrite - 82. If she runs the 2500m she wins!
2. No.3 Qafila - 81. Loved her run on saturday. Drawn to sit midfield off the fence and will get her chance. Looks like 2500m will suit.
3. No.2 Aristia - 79. Her form has been consistent, before her good strong win on saturday, but others look suited at the 2500m to me.
4. No.12 Collectable - 77. Just got outsprinted at Caulfield, but her closing 200m was one of the ebst of the day. No risk at the 2500m. Bred to be a classic winner from Sebring out of an oaks winning mare and she is the best longshot in the race.
5. No.6 Sizzleme - 76. Was left a sitting shot at caulfield and I thought she had her chance on saturday. Should have no problems with the 2500m, but she seems to be a grinding filly, and that makes her a top four hope at best.
6. No.4 Very Ellegant - 75. No doubting her ability, but she needs to settle. Stretching to 2500m so she will need a John Allen special, but if she settles she can win.

6. No.5 - 74
Add ins for any scratchings are No.7 & No.13.
Recommended Bet: $50 win No.9 Perast
Precedent: No.3 Dollar For Dollar

Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

1. No.1 - 85
2. No.7 - 83
3. No.6 - 81
4. No.11- 78
5. No.2 - 77
6. No.4 - 75
Add ins for any scratchings are No.8 & No.12.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.1 Libran (Ryan Moore on I see).
                 $20 win No.11 Midterm (omen bet for Donald Trump and the Republicans.
Precedent: No.6 Casterton

Matriarch Stakes.

1. No.2 - 83
2. No.11- 80
3. No.8 - 78
4. No.6 - 77 (If she can run the 2000m she can win)
5. No.9 - 75
6. No.7 - 73
Add ins for any scratchings are No.1 & No.5.
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.2 Savvy Coup
                 $20 win No.11 Temple Of Bel
Precedent: No.8 Sheezdashing

VRC Sprint Classic.

1. No.1 Redzel - 95. No reason he should not run well here. The only thing he loses points for is a drier track, which brings some more of his opposition into the race, but he is the one to get past.
2. No.2 Brave Smash - 90. Good win last start after a forgettable Sydney run. Goes well down the straight and has got an undeniable chance.
3. No.5 Jungle Cat - 86. Distance record is, well just about faultless. Like him down the straight here and my only query is where he has drawn. Has the ability to win this.
4. No.6 Pierata - 84. Going down the straight for the first time. His Sydney Stakes win was sensational and he is right in this.
5. No.8 Spirit Of Valour - 82. His two runs here have been outstanding. I can see him stalking the speed from the draw and getting over the top late. I can see he is $15 again with sportsbet and that is just stupid odds.
6. No.7 Kementari - 80. Good run on a track which gave him no chance last time out. No doubt he can win, but for me he needs to much to gor ight to be a betting proposition.
Add ins for the scratchings are No.13 (if she stays at 431 she is the value bet in the race) & No.4 (straight track champion, but I want to see him run well before I back him again).
Recommended Bet: $20 win No.5 Jungle Cat
                 $20 win No.6 Pierata
                 $5 each way No.13 Spright
Precedent: No.2 Brave Smash

Emirates Stakes.

1. No.3 Blair House - 85. Two runs here have been top class. Not sure why he missed the Cox Plate, but can make amends here, with victory.
2. No.7 Latrobe - 82. 2000m form is good but would prefer him at 2400m. Still the quality is there and this is not an overly strong race to win.
3. No.9 Extra Brut - 78. Not sure about the 3yo form, but he is clearly a quality Flemington horse and can see him being competitive here.
4. No.4 Trap For Fools - 75. The way the race was run, he would have run well in the Cox Plate. His Turnbull Stakes run was good but obviously rises in weight here. Has carried 59 kilos to win before so that should not worry. Might be the overs.
5. No.8 Shillelagh - 74. Genuine group 1 miler. WFA at 2000m might be the test, but if she can run the 2000m she can win here.
6. No.1 It's Somewhat - 72. Came into this race last year in similar form, and was placed. Mixes his form but he has the ability for a top four finish.
Add ins for any scratchings are No.2 & No.5
Recommended Bet: $30 win No.3 Blair House
                 $20 win No.8 Shillelagh
Precedent: There is no precedent, but the closest one is Trap For Fools who comes through the Turnbull and Cox Plate day, but not the Cox Plate.

Good luck to everyone, and lots of winners for all!
