If this was an open handicap, and Urbie was on a minimum of 51 or something. am I correct in suggesting that Happy Clapper would be carrying 99kg?

We had a hypothetical last week:

Would Winx win the Hinnomunjie Cup over 2000m on a Good 3 carrying 108.5kg?

The toppie was a 35 rater at 67kg, so knock him back to the 60kg picnic minimum with all the other runners, and smack her 97 point rating advantage on top.

FYI, the race was run in 2:11, track record time btw. Would 51.5kg from her normal WFA weight make her 12-13 seconds slower than usual?

We basically suggested she'd have to try and be 3-4 in front at the turn, and assume slow horses can't chase.

UR $201 into $101 @ Beteasy. Can't beat that 11/12 and 13/14 lead up form in scrubber races in QLD. He did win a provincial BM race in 2017 so broken clock and all that.

I guess $20 each from 800 owners will tighten anything
