GROUPIES RESULTS - Spring 2019 round 15  - Winterbottom Stakes

Hey Doc vindicated his trainer's confidence pre-race, and proved that he was still a force to be reckoned with, winning the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes easily, leading from start to finish.

Only Richard III heeded Tony McAvoy's advice by tipping Hey Doc and is the top scorer for the week, Hey Doc rewarding him with a generous 18.1 points.

Despite this gallant effort on the part of Richard III, he failed to overtake the leaders on the Spring Leaderboard.

Wilks, The Mighty Quinn and Percy1 continue to hold firm to the first three places.

Only one round remains in the Spring Groupies Competition and that will decide the Spring Champion.

GROUPIES RESULTS - Spring 2019 round 14  - Railway Stakes

Star Western Australian jockey William Pike was again victorious in the Railway Stakes, riding Regal Power to a commanding win over Best of Days and Platoon.

GROUPIES RESULTS - Spring 2019 rounds 11 to 13

Melbourne Cup / Kennedy Oaks / VRC Sprint Classic / Mackinnon Stakes

The Flemington mini carnival was mostly run under cloudy skies and wet tracks with yesterday's two Group 1 races marking the last of the east coast racing season.

These last three rounds, particularly the Melbourne Cup, where only De Lago Dude scored points for the second placed Prince of Arran, resulted in low scores all round at the end of the day.

Most successful were Chinesguy and Richard III who share a top score of 24.3 for different horses.

Chineseguy tipped two winners, Miami Bound and Nature Strip plus second placed Melody Belle, whereas Richard III scored the same aggregate of points for Oaks runner up Never Listen and was the sole tipster for Mackinnon Stakes winner Magic Wand.

The Mighty Quinn still holds top spot on the Spring Leaderboard and Wilks is second, but De Lago Dude has jumped to third place and is a threat to both.

GROUPIES RESULTS - Spring 2019  round 10   Victoria Derby Day

Empire Rose Stakes/ Coolmore Stud Stakes /Victoria Derby/ Kennedy Cantala

It was the wettest Derby Day in years, so it's no surprise that mud larks thrived in the conditions, notably Melody Belle, Exceedance and Warning, who obviously appreciated the soft track.

Melody Belle & Exceedance were popular tips, but nobody tipped the Victoria Derby winner Warning, with Shadow Hero being the predominate Groupies favourite, and he notably failed on the surface.

Wilks is top scorer again this week tipping two winners - Melody Belle and Fierce Impact - and the Derby runner up, Southern Moon.

He now occupies second place on the Spring Leaderboard only 2.7 points behind The Mighty Quinn, who hangs on to top spot thanks to his tip for Exceedance.
