I have to say - my ventures to the SRP board around election time really do make you appreciate how good the bants and posters are on the punting board. Even if you do think:
- Perth mares are producing Australian best performances over the WA summer
- Champagne Cuddles is the best older mare in Australia
- Australia hasn't had a good horse since Super Impose
- Protectionst was overs in the Melbourne Cup
Doomben Cup looks weak. Can’t see Gem Song getting the trip. Afterthought for Shillelagh. Not sure Youngstar’s back to her best or suited here.
Don’t mind On The Rocks from a favourable draw on a good surface at $41/$11 on a 1x3 basis. Won the G1 Herbie Dyke Stakes over 2000m 3 starts ago. Mixes form obviously but his better form gives him a chance. Races erratically though so don’t be surprised if he gives up on a protest!
