    Bloody annoying isn't it.

    One minute the board is made up of guys like Sethlad and Danger Mouse, next minute my old username gets red carded and I lose interest in bigfooty. I log in now with a new username and theres all these new people saying when do we get ' our board ' back. Well when do I get my board back???

    Bowman weighed in 0.5kg over, excessive whip use and careless riding. of course placings hold.

    Soft ground is the word.
    Bit stiff calling it a cat. It walked in over Prince of Arran last start.

    Used it to cart AQ into the race but AQ didn't have the turn of foot, looks to be a nice horse over more ground

    yep confused.

    i had them both running same figures last start(69-69.5). both outstanding late. both were over 1400m. both go to same race next start at same distance at same track and one starts $2.00 the other i took $44 on the exchange.

    finish within 3/4L of each other after Pike used Parnham as a windshield. times like this make it impossible to back pike.

    i had it like this.

    still confused....

    Good luck ... you could have Mister Ed backing you up, and you'll still end up going around in circles and the only ground that'll be shifted is them digging their heels in more

    So who's the lightly (un)raced NH 3yo that'll be thrown in at the weights next year? The one(s) that make the cut will start short in the market, surely lightning won't strike 3 times.. Ladbrokes have My Hamada at $81 for MC 2019. Seems good value...

    So how does Cliffs shatter his shoulder? Has lead up races and training for the biggest race of his career and breaks his shoulder a few hundred metres into the race. How does this happen? Surely they are thoroughly checked pre race.

    These things can just happen sometimes. Horses can do it on their own just running around in a paddock. There was no interference or hard riding or anything like that at the time that contributed to it and there was no sign of any abnormality before the race. RV have stated that an autopsy will be carried out

    More people in here the better I would have thought. I wish I had the time to come here more often as I enjoy reading the discussions.
