    Wide without cover

    Go easy on him Leroy We're giving him a special dispensation to join TRP, seeing as the other mob have put him on moderation yet again

  6. Really like Thunder Moon as a 3yr old classics prospect Stodge! I see he is nominated for The Derby, speed of Zoffany out of a Sadlers Wells mare(33's Ante ).The Dewhurst will be interesting in a few weeks!
  7. Here's mardigras theory: the disadvantage of being wide without cover (to a point), is offset due to the freedom and lack of impact to energy from being surrounded by horses or from following a horse. And has the added advantage of already travelling faster under it's own steam than those nearer the rail, when maintaining position when entering the straight. Obviously 10 wide around corners is unlikely to be as beneficial as 3 wide. But I like it when my horse has no horse in front of it and room on at least one side of it. I prefer 3 wide to a horse in the trail (unless the tr
  8. So to Saturday and at Newmarket, after overnight rain, the ground has eased back to Good. Just five stand in the Group 2 Royal Lodge over 1600m and it looks a modest renewal. Top rated is NEW MANDATE who won in Listed class at Doncaster a fortnight ago. It was a decent effort but COBH is favourite possibly less because of the balance of his form than because of the quality of opposition and more especially the horse who beat him at Ascot two runs ago, CHINDIT, who is a leading player in the 2000 Guineas betting. I like the unbeaten GEAR UP who won the Acomb at York last time and wouldn't

    of course he could have had a light meal and no alcohol if the intention is to be able to ride at 54kg the next day.
  10. No real value around again this week! So I will settle for couple of trebles and multis. Ireland :Rai and Bermester have form here, Meronk and Canter USA: Hughes, Jones and Zhang all have course form. Korn Ferry: Will be sifting through the stable and these with course form Compton,Ramey,Hueber,Schnell and Schniederjans
  11. Addington Frid thoughts. R1 Fanny Hill. Strikes a mobile and nice Muscle Hill filly, in a not overly tough field. FF $7 R2 Shards in Manhattan. Will get it right soon , has ability and sticking with it. FF$23. My blowout chance. R3 Franco Jorick. This horse is shaping up to be as good as any of the up and coming stars in this field, and has given them frights all the way along. TAB no balls at FF$11, tote your best guide. R7 Tyrons Bit Of Lemon. Good 3yr old season and up to winning this. FF$4.50 R10 Under Wraps. Consistent and at FF$8 should be thereabouts.

    Yep it doesn't matter I can identify with him, not part of the Cambridge glitterati, nor the Matamata 'elite', yet more raw ability than most of them

    Not so Pete, Food absorbs alcohol. No food and the alcohol stays within the bloodstream. Hooksie had 2 beers and 2 bourbons, had he had even a light meal it would have returned zero. Doesn't matter much, he is on stream to ride 8 more. He doesn't have to prove anything, but SI racing without him is fckued Enjoy

  17. Just to wrap up last weekend - the Group 2 Mill Reef at Newbury went to ALKUMAIT who had too much speed for FIVETHOUSANDTOONE in the final 100m. RHYTHM MASTER, for whom it happened all too quickly over 1200m on quite fast ground, ran on for third and will relish a step up in trip. The winner was only having his third run having won nicely in a maiden at Goodwood on his second run - this was a big step up and he took it well and was a nice tonic for this trainer who had lost MOHAATHER to stud after injury. ALKUMAIT is by Showcasing out of a Dutch Art so even 1600m may be pushing it and I e

  20. That’s a valid point about the dam side I guess I will have to trust Aidan’s judgement, To win the cup you need a turn of foot, maybe Tiger Moth gets his staying ability from his Dad and that turnoff foot from his Mum, his head 2nd to Santiago at only his 3rd start suggested he had plenty of improvement and when he won his group 3 at his 4th start over the 2400 showed he was a bit push button, he looked to be going away from his rivals, pretty much untouched, not sure on the quality he beat, but the way he won suggested he’d get further Currently I couldn’t back him at his curr
  21. ROUND 6 - Sat Sep 26 TC is the sole owner of an unbeaten record after 5 rounds although Robert might put an end to that this week while everyone has now enjoyed at least one personal victory. Five Jokers still to be played with just this week or next as their only options. Round 7 Draw at the foot of this post to help those Captains with their decisions. Races are: 1. New Plymouth R5 - 2.17pm - Zed @ Grangewilliam Stud 1200 - $32k, 1200m, open hdcp 2. New Plymouth R6 - 2.55pm - Seaton Park 1400 - $22k, 1400m, R65 BM 3. New Plymouth R7 - 3.30pm - NZB Ready To Run Sale

  23. Weight as a 'stopping' factor' has to be measured against the quality of the opposition. TCO is a top class ad now fully mature galloper. IMO he is in for a big season and could easily win one or more of the 'big three' this Spring. Already placed over 2 miles, handles most track conditions, a winner at Flemington, gets in light, and by the right sire (if you're a fan of Kiwi-breds). Ticks a lot of boxes for me. MM

    https://www.racenet.com.au/news/the-racing-league--affordable-horse-ownership-along-state-lines-20200922 What a great idea. Might buy myself a share.
  27. Here's Max's theory: in lower-grade races some horses are clearly superior to others and would win if they were 10 wide without cover. However, the higher quality the opposition the more likely it is that margins will be tighter, especially in sprint races. (You often see four or more in a photofinish over 1200m, not very often over 2000m+ Yes, I know there have bee deadheats in 3200m races; they are the exceptions that prove the rule.) Barrier draws also affect the result more in sprints; trainers scratch horses sometimes just because they "drew too wide" and will wait for another race.
