Cross Counter @ $26 won't jump on just yet will await the Kergolay running first backing the winner there antepost plus Cross Counter should drift slightly after that
??? why is CC going to drift following the Kergolay?

Kergloay form has been irrelevant last 6 years apart from once which in hindsight proved to be a complete fluke - its quickly going the way of the Ebor as a form reference.

I've found last few years it's had an affect on the market
Just a gut feel it may push a few out by a few $ in the $26-31 bracket

Holdthasigreen/Marmelo/Nearly Caught continue their turn taking in the Kergolay (last year they were 3rd/1st/4th respectively) - doubt that's the right form race for this year's Melbourne Cup.

NZ is basically Australia these days anyway, Australian stamina mares are just tending to find themselves on a small plane trip over the ditch.

thought cross counter was slightly disappointing at york.
surprised it came into 18s after the race.
thought old persian had its measure. it on the other hand is at 100s

Big Duke ran 4th in the race last year. Is clearly ahead of the others too
As good as he will ever do - no chance of winning - might fall into another top 5.

Fully exposed horses like him don't run 4th and and then suddenly sprout wings and go on to win

Just finally had a look at the noms. No Rekindling or Johannes Vermeer... I just do not get it. Why even have horses if you are not going to race them.

If there is one trainer I'd back to have a horse cherry ripe on Cup day it is Gai



They have fair dinkum left a zero off there

I thought it may have been criminal unders as well, but these are corporate bookies we're talking about. Just loved it's St. Leger performance on Anzac Day, and you know how you get an affinity for a horse?
