Gambling Horse Racing

Thought we were about to get off to a flyer with The Gauch going down narrowly by 0.2L to guess who the 10 Ocean Beyond who we said to have a saver on and paid $5.50 so with a bonus bet and the saver a winner it wasn’t all bad. Our luck of narrows continued with Silent Sovereign dead heating at $10 and $3.20 so we got back $66 on him. The other 4 tips went 6th, 5th and 8th to see out the day.

This week Melbourne racing heads to Caulfield for the ZIPPING (named after the consistent gelding that won 4 straight Sandown Classics and came 4th in the Melbourne cup a few times) classic and Sandown Cup, despite a bit of rain Thurs the track should be a good 4 and the rail is out 4m. Sydney heads to Rosehill and the track has had a bucket full of rain over the last few days and should be in the heavy range if the meeting even goes ahead so keep your form around those who love a rain affected track and the rail is true. There is a chance the meeting gets called off.

Melbourne Race 3 – Number 1 – Decent Raine – $20 Win (Currently $2.70)

Was absolutely dominate last start winning by 3.5L easing up after a few unlucky runs the 2 prior and stays at 1400m v own sex here instead of going to the Guineas over 1600m where she was nominated. Drawn a tricky barrier and will settle back in the field but has a tremendous turn of foot and is well weighted here against these other fillies. The 4 could be a good each way danger.

Melbourne Race 4 – Number 7 – Curran – $10 win $20 Place ($5.00 / $2.05)

Has struck trouble last 2 runs, the latest racing down the middle of the track at Flemington and the time before struck trouble early and became unbalanced and still had a good run for 3rd over this same course and distance and meets the 13 worse off at the weights but should be able to get a nice run in the midfield with plenty of speed in this race. Other than 13, the main dangers are 5, 9 and 13 and keep an eye on the 4 at decent each way odds to be flying home late.

Sydney Race 5 – Number 8 – Irish Angel – $10 Win (Currently $4.60)

Resuming here after winning 1st up last time in on a Soft 7 and has outstanding wet track form with 15 starts on rain effected tracks for 3 wins and 7 places and compared to dry stats she excels on the wet and if Rosehill goes ahead, it will be a very heavy 10 and we should see her best fresh here at a nice price. The 3 is the main danger at a decent each way price, the 2 the other main danger.

 Melbourne Race 5 – Number 4 – Tricky Gal – $10 win (Currently $5.00)

Has been racing down in Sydney without much luck and comes into this one drawn to get a good run in transit and although a bit of give out of the track would be better she is still competitive on a good track and should get a chance here. The main dangers are the 1 and 8, 9 is being backed off map.

Melbourne Race 8 – Number 10 – Royal Mile – $10 Win and $20 Place ($6.00 / $2.20)

South Australian visitor who should lead or be on pace here with no real leader in the race should get it fairly easy out in front in this race. Steps out to 1800m here and has good form at this distance range and has won 4 of 5 on good tracks so conditions and the speed map suit him here. He might just prove too hard to beat if he gets a soft time of it out in front. Main dangers 2, 7 and 8.
