No signs of Robert as yet ! 

Usually bounces first from the gates .... but is seemingly left a little flat-footed as the starter pushes the button.

Obviously taking Saturday's challenge from one 'Howee' very seriously ...and is immersed in the formguides desperately looking for guidance and inspiration as we speak, albeit it is 2.41am. 

😁😁

Tip of the day - Redeel Race 1 Pakenham. No trial form but big wraps on this debutant. No promises on the price.

 

And if you want to see a winning performance by a horse with not a clue in hell about racing take a look at this from Balaklava earlier in the week:

Name is COOLTH - went out $1.30 favourite on debut and showed no interest in what racing was about whatsoever until they straightened and he was given a reminder of why he was there.

Colours are Blue with white sash, lime green & blue quartered cap and lime green & blue striped sleeves. You will be astounded

Jeepers , got some tow that boy. With a finish like that I thought he might have had a sulky on behind. But nah, just another TB.:classic_happy:

The horse doesn’t know it’s drifting 

You’ll be surprised how many drifters win

A horse I thought would win yesterday in the first at Wagga Lions Roar just kept drifting

When betting late, I back far more drifters than shorteners. If you've already bet and it's drifting, the only negative I see is that you took it at less than what it is now.

When Dawn Passage won I was thinking of you it sat 3 wide facing the breeze and smacked em

Quite a few you put up last Saturday shortened significantly 

I was watching the fluctuations on BF with that one you mentioned that opened at 40-1 started with the letter D I forget at the minute there was some vigorous trading going on there between 24-1 and 16-1 with some decent money available to get on

It does get annoying when you get on at the bottom of the drift, however that option is available to put more on if you so desire
