Who likes a big finish.


Thought we might be able to find a couple of big finishes.
Hope you can add a favourite to the list.


Perth Time


Hopefully this thread will be littered with winners and useful information. Melbourne horses no longer have a home ground advantage, and the overseas ones may find this assignment bone jarring. Imagine playing Northerly on his home ground.
Barakey, Maschino $17, Luke's Luck, Bridgestone $61 and Trading Day are some I have my eye on over the the next few weeks. Look forward to some positive comments and of course some negative ones from those that are considered special.

Perth Thread


No Caviar but still some big racing coming up. Drop is you thoughts comments or any pre post investments you may want to share.

Lots of scratching in the Winterbottom. No Caviar no Barakey. Ortensia a warm fav

The Railway is a bit more open
Ranger is the one that is getting a lot of interest after it's win last Saturday and has firmed into favourtism Kincaple has been plonked 31 to about 19 and expected to go around 1st up after an easy Kalgoorlie Cup win. Lucky Gray has propsects but has drifted from the 4/1 opening quote with some support for other runners.

looking forward to your thoughts



It's Movember and time to focus on men's health. To show my commitment, I'm donating my face to the cause by growing a moustache for the entire month of November, and need your support. My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer and male depression.
Why am I so passionate about men's health?
*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
*This year 20,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
*1 in 8 men will experience depression in their lifetime
I'm asking you to support my Movember campaign by making a donation by either:

Right o lads it's a good cause.

Dig deep and let the moths out, all those that have cleaned up over the spring carnival now is the time to give some back.

Thank you in advance for supporting my efforts to change the face of men's health.

High:Black Caviar's effortless wins

Low: Atlantic Jewel scratching from the Oaks, could of been some race.

Talking From the Pocket: Emirates day (smoked) it was a disaster. Also Red Cadeaux 2nd in the cup hurt.

Lets look to Perth no BC but some interesting racing ahead.

When the planets aligned


Nice to hear about a successful day on the punt…but it’s the other side sometimes we don’t get the word on a day when things didn’t go to plan. How about one each way a good win and a near miss or a day you did the shirt, shoes and hat.

AFL Form


Footy Tipping is a great pastime but how does everyone do the form?

I take my tipping pretty seriously but would like to hear from others on how you come up with the magic 8.

Match up’s
Home ground advantage
Or a mixture or each
Some go on gut

There are plenty of factors

The Pies were missing Jolly Johnson and Maxwell. Jolly looked to be missed the most
Dees had a poor record at Etihad
Freo had the good Derby record
Some tipped an in form Richmond

Saint have been ordinary but fav’s this week against Melbourne
Pies look the only good things this week.
This week will see a difficult weeks tipping.

8 this week would be huge.

Give us you thoughts and come Friday your tips
