GROUPIES – Spring 2020 round 9 - Manikato Stakes /Cox Plate

This week the challenge is to find the winners of the Manikato Stakes and Cox Plate – the feature races in Moonee Valley’s mini spring racing carnival.

Both races have attracted interesting fields with a number of live chances. At least Russian Camelot will be at decent odds this time, should you wish to take a chance on him returning to form in the Cox Plate.

GROUPIES RESULTS – Spring 2020 round 8 - Caulfield Cup

That was a fabulous win by Verry Elleegant in the Caulfield Cup, and pleasing to see that the Zabeel factor is still a force to be reckoned with; both Verry Elleegant and third placed The Chosen One being grandchildren of the great staying sire.

Five Groupies tipped Verry Elleegant, but it’s Todman who scored top points this week, The Chosen One’s third place points paying a bigger dividend.

Loges2 has increased his lead on the Spring Leaderboard and Jet has displaced Ramses from second place courtesy of their tip for Verry Elleegant.

Next weekend Group 1 racing continues at Moonee Valley with the Manikato Stakes the feature on Friday night and the Cox Plate on Saturday afternoon.

GROUPIES – Spring 2020  round 8 - Caulfield Cup

For a change of pace, there is only one Group 1 race to tip this week. Of course The Everest is the feature race at Randwick on Saturday, but the Caulfield Cup is the sole official Group 1 event.

It has attracted an interesting field of contenders, a mix of Internationals and locals as is usual these days. I am curious to see how Waller’s girls, Verry Elleegant and Toffee Tongue, will go.

GROUPIES RESULTS round 7

GROUPIES RESULTS - Spring 2020 round 7

Ned’s Caulfield Stakes / Thousand Guineas / Caulfield Guineas/ Spring Champion Stakes / Toorak Handicap

Mostly courtesy of Russian Camelot, the defeated hot favourite in the Caulfield Stakes, everyone scored points this round, though nobody tipped Thousand Guineas winner Odeum or Mr Quickie in the Toorak Handicap.

Russian Camelot certainly had his colours lowered and will probably offer better odds when he races again.

Loges2 is the top scorer this round tipping two winners in Ole Kirk and Montefilia, plus earning points for second placed Russian Camelot and third placed Instant Celebrity.

He has augmented his place at the top of the Spring Leaderboard, having a 20 point lead over Ramses who now occupies second place ahead of Jet.

Euraman deserves a special mention for being the sole tipster of Arcadia Queen in the Caulfield Stakes.

GROUPIES RESULTS – Spring 2020 round 6

Flight Stakes / Turnbull Stakes / Epsom / Metropolitan

It certainly was a tricky round, with favourites in the main being rolled, so it’s not surprising that those who thought outside the square scored more points than others.

Jet, a late arrival to the Spring Groupies competition, this week being only his second tipping contribution, certainly has made up for lost time being the top scorer this round.

He scored points on all four of the races, selecting two winners in Verry Elleegant and Probabeel and two runners up in Hungry Heart and Mugatoo, accruing a total of 33 points.

Other notable tipping feats were Oldtimer’s tip for Montefilia in the Flight Stakes and Euraman’s selection of Mirage Dancer in the Metropolitan.

Jet now occupies second place on the Spring Leaderboard, only 5.5 points behind Loges2 who still hangs on to top spot.

GROUPIES RESULTS  - Spring 2020 round 5 – Moir Stakes / Golden Rose/ Underwood Stakes

It’s disappointing that Rothfire, the overwhelming favourite in the Golden Rose, went amiss during the race and thus stymied just about everyone’s chances to score points in the race.

However, Russian Camelot certainly looked the real deal in the Underwood Stakes, so most Groupies accrued points this round.

One Perfect Day and Ramses are the top scorers, winning points in all three races, with tips for Pippie in the Moir, Ole Kirk in the Golden Rose and Arcadia Queen in the Underwood.

Jet (welcome back!), Pigracer and Saintly1996 tipped two winners in Pippie and Russian Camelot.

Loges2 still holds firm to top spot on the Spring Leaderboard though the minor  places have changed with Pigracer and Saintly1996 now occupying second and third positions.
