GROUPIES  Spring 2021  round 11 - Empire Rose Stakes / Victoria Derby / Coolmore Stud Stakes / Cantala Stakes

It's the first day of the Flemington racing carnival this Saturday, always a ripping day of racing action, features four Group 1 races, and is a splendid opportunity for the Groupies to accrue points, though it will be a challenge to suss out all four winners. Good luck trying!

GROUPIES RESULTS Spring 2021  round 10 - Manikato Stakes / Cox Plate

Well, another Cox Plate has been run and won. The scratching of hot favourite Zaaki early in the day threw the race wide open, and the result was a surprise as well with Irish raider State of Rest narrowly beating local boy Anamoe, then surviving a protest.

The Manikato Stakes result was pretty well par for the course, Jonker winning the bickies from Bella Nipotina.

The Groupies collective tipped the trifecta in both races.

Top scorer this week is The Mighty Quinn, who tipped the winning double, the sole player to achieve this. Interestingly, The Mighty Quinn was also the top scorer for the Manikato/Cox Plate round last year.

Richard III was the only other tipster for State of Rest, also scoring points for Ingratiating’s third place in the Manikato Stakes.

As a result of his canny tipping The Mighty Quinn has leapt to the top of the Spring Leaderboard, displacing former incumbent Jet to lead by 10.8 points. Ramses shares second place with Jet and Oldman is now third.

GROUPIES Spring 2021 round 10 -  Manikato Stakes / Cox Plate

The Everest has certainly taken the shine off the Manikato Stakes, with all the top sprinters engaged last week, being absent from Friday night’s feature race, leaving us with a wide open field where any of the contenders could win.

The Cox Plate by contrast has a small but pretty decent field with the exciting prospect of Zaaki and Verry Elleegant going head to head. Of course there is the chance that neither may feature in the finish, making it an intriguing race all round.

GROUPIES RESULTS Spring  2021 rounds 8/9 - Thousand Guineas / Caulfield Cup

Incentivise proved he was something special in winning the 2021 Caulfield Cup, though a perfect ride by Brett Prebble certainly helped him keep his winning streak intact. How far can he go?

On Wednesday, the unfancied Yearning won the Thousand Guineas at big odds and Oldman, Oldtimer and One Perfect Day all benefitted from her win, scoring 38.10 points.

Oldman is the sole Groupie to tip the winning double of Yearning and Incentivise and is the top scorer for the week, accruing 47.20 points. Well Done Oldman!

He has rocketed up the Leaderboard to second place and is only 1.5 points behind Jet who clings to top spot.

We’re a little over halfway through the Spring Groupies competition so there will be plenty of opportunities for those at the back of the field to challenge for the lead.

GROUPIES Spring 2021 round 9 - Caulfield Cup

The Caulfield Cup on Saturday has attracted a full field of contenders including new star of the turf Incentivise. He’s drawn the car park so will have to be good to continue on with his winning streak.

Still it gives the other runners a chance to steal the Group 1 glory, making it anyone’s guess who the winner will be, if not Incentivise.

GROUPIES RESULTS Spring 2021 round 7 - Might and Power / Caulfield Guineas / Spring Champion Stakes / Toorak Handicap

POP! The Zaaki bubble has burst in what was a surprising result in the Might and Power with super New Zealand mare Probabeel winning the prize from Nonconformist, leaving Zaaki in her wake.

It just goes to confirm that racing is never dull and that anything can happen in a race, and generally does.

For the Groupies it was a good scoring round with everyone registering points.

Congratulations to Bushman031 who is the top scorer this week, accruing points in all four of the races in contention with two winners in Anamoe and I’m Thunderstruck and two third places in Zaaki and Alegron.

Jet and Snorks are also to be commended for tipping two winners in Profondo and I’m Thunderstruck and two third places in Zaaki and Artorius.

Jet has toppled Ramses from top spot on the Spring Leaderboard and leads by a narrow margin, with Percy1, The Mighty Quinn and Mr Mars fighting out the other minor places.

GROUPIES RESULTS – Spring 2021 round 6 - Flight Stakes/Turnbull Stakes/Epsom/Metropolitan

It turned into a tricky round this week where winners were hard to find. The normally reliable point scorer, Verry Elleegant, failed to run a place and a 40/1 long shot won the Flight Stakes.

Congratulations to the few who managed to tip two winners, Ramses in particular, who is top scorer this week with his tips for Incentivise, Private Eye and second placed Entente.

Jet also tipped two winners in Private Eye and Montefilia.

As a result of his tipping prowess, Ramses has seized the lead on the Spring Leaderboard just ahead of Jet who has moved from fourth to second place this round.

GROUPIES  Spring 2021 round 6 - Flight Stakes / Turnbull Stakes / Epsom / Metropolitan

We’re now getting into the pointy end of the spring Racing Carnival with four Group 1 races on the cards this Saturday, one in Melbourne and three in Sydney –an excellent opportunity to score points.

The Turnbull Stakes at Flemington looks a beauty where Incentivise, Verry Elleegant and Sir Dragonet will most likely fight out the finish.

The Epsom looks the pick of the Sydney races having attracted a classy field where any of the runners could win.
