On Tagaloa, I agree he’s been hard to catch but I’m not underestimating how good that performance was yesterday. They ran 1.21.6, considerably faster than the other 1400 races on the day and he was up outside that carrying 59.5. They had the drop on him and a weight pull and still couldn’t get past him.

Big danger could be Cherry Tortoni. Went straight past the third place getter before dying on his run. We know he gets further so I’m assuming he needed the run. Looked a bit tubby to me. Anyway smaller bet on him.
So I have Tagaloa at 9s and Cherry Tortoni at 16s ante post. Second and third blown away by the longest priced G1 winner in Australian racing history. The biggest fisting I’ve received on the punt. So for all of those who had a bad day, that should make you feel a bit better.

This made me feel better.

Rough for you if Cherry drew a barrier he wins.

Classic Waller.

I had Great House on top but didn't have a bet because of the map. Great House was always going to do that, I would be more annoyed if I was on the other one that they had lumped. That ride was easily worse.

Ok poll time. I like to think of myself as not particularly a jockey basher, but I need to vent here. Worst ride of the day.

Talking through my kick it’s Egan, but the head says Kah on Buffalo River.
