did laugh particularly hard at these two.op 20 in the betting (Sportsbet Market) and my preliminary comment
7. Melody Belle $15.00 If wet big hope
20. Mystic Journey $26.00 Way overs, should be top 3 in the betting as ran really well last year, if it was 1800m i would declare her this far out but the last 200ms the worry
I’d say the fact he got rolled by buck hurst is actually a negative and suggests in a normal year he probably isn’t good enough.Well Buckhurst is winning and he has form around him So has to be a fair chance
This. VE looks the only decent older horse and might not even run. So Sir D basically goes into top 3 of betting by default.I thought VE was going CC into MC this year too. Seemed to be what Waller was planning a month ago
She finished alongside TAS in the QE who ran clear third last year and was second to magic wand in the mackinnon who was 4th. Interesting take that is almost certain to be wrong.I wasn't having a go at the poster of that list, but lets be honest Melody's was never a chance at a cox plate in any prep.
Yeah don't like the call at all but by all reports he has wanted to go Cups this year with more weight ever since last yearAnd let’s face it. Waller is a complete moron if he goes to Caulfield over here. But he can’t train cup horses to save his life so I wouldn’t put it past him.
Needed to do that last year when she was lucky to make the field at the Valley and ran accordingly.
I reckon Buckhurst is the pick of the raiders at this stage. Given ours are garbage this year and the best of the lot probably won't even end up there 99% of my bets will be around those coming over. Anything close to a MW effort will win comfortably this yearI’d say the fact he got rolled by buck hurst is actually a negative and suggests in a normal year he probably isn’t good enough.
But he has form similar to Magic Wand who was second best run In the race last year and outside VE the locals are absolutely horrific.
He basically has to be kept safe on that basis alone but I would have VE a clear fave over him at this stage.
Nah buckhurst has Buckley’s of winning a cox plate. Nowhere near good enoughI reckon Buckhurst is the pick of the raiders at this stage.

I can't - his only won above G3 level and he was absolutely belted #noexcusesCan forgive that run. Beat home SD both runs previously and racing style will be much more suited to the valley than his
I don’t think buckhurst is any better than apestar who I also think is nowhere near good enough. Profiles to me as a small field Irish horse that will be tailed off.Buckhurst > Aspetar > SD
Money in the bin everything else. They're no stars but we have dog sh*t and an overhyped SA derby winner at the top of the market
