Just reviewing the winterbottom at the moment.

Some very strange similarities

2019

3rd Rock Magic 2.7L
4th Trekking 3.1L
5th Flirtini 3.2L
7th Stageman 5.1L

2020

3rd Rock Magic 1.4L
4th Trekking 1.7L
5th Flirtini 2.6L
9th Stageman 3.0L


Fair to say it looks about 1.5L weaker by those margins with everything being very consistent. Only 2 to compete and not follow the pattern was Valour road (blocked entire straight), Vital Silver (didn't turn up in same form which was always concern). Although last year was savage bias so was uncommonly high rating for the winner so it's not as bad as it seems. OK race to be honest...

So this suggests Trekking ran up to expectations (with the notable exception of the market)

I wouldn’t say ran to expectations, sort of more so the fact that it’s not unexpected but still disappointing. It means he ran to his WA previous which is far from his best but not unexpected to run the same again. He was again priced at his absolute top which just makes it very hard to do that on any given day and basically never a betting commodity.

How about that little campaigner Kayla Nisbet in the first at Sapphire Coast.... wow, just unbelievably inept
There are some fair bikini pics of her and her sisters on one of the punters sites (might even be Punters.com) - in fairness to her:

a) She makes a cracking interview subject. Very down to earth
b) Has some very reasonable sisters

Never change TB. When not sure how to pronounce the name of a horse (in this case - Orazio) rather than check it pre-race: simply pronounce it three different ways in the run.
obviously not a bombers supporter. He could call it the way BT pronounces it. orraaaaaazzzzzzzzzzzzioooooooooooooo

Say what you will about the quality of the race but to have the best colt, filly, mare, miler and stayer in the state in the same race at WFA in the KT this weekend is something you really wish you saw more of in Australia. If Gemma's Son was in the east he'd be 1000:1 to line up in a 1800m race probably finding some nice 3yo races to avoid the big hitters but there's none of them around so all horses are funnelled into 1 single race at WFA. It's really nice programming. Even the blend in of the 3yo's to race both sexes in the guineas. It's an in-between distance but really does bring everything together except the pure sprinters...

How the hell has Allibor sold for over a mil to HK?

Won the worst GR2 you would ever see.

What a way to burn your cash.
