Quote from the latest PR bulletin from NZTM ..

A wide draw and little luck in transit prevented glamour mare Melody Belle (NZ) (Commands) adding to her illustrious record ...


or maybe she just wasn't good enough on the day.

Not saying she would've won but there was no way she was going to get near them from that far back the way the track was playing.

She actually ran on ok.

Is it just me or am i imaging things but more and more tracks in AUS and NZ appear to favour those near the pace.

A few tracks in Aus have always favoured on pacers.

Rosehill, Caulfield.

Here we have.

Ruakaka, Avondale, Te Aroha, Timaru.

Miami Bound drew one outside her and finished third....no excuses

It is ironic though, the way even the Aussies talk her up

She has 1 more G1 win than Sunline, and 3 more than Rough Habit.  I would venture to say, that she does not even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those other 2.  All but one of those 14 G1's was in NZ, whereas Sunline and Rough Habit, regularly proved themselves at G1 level in Aus

There were a number of money horses totally taken out by the bias, Cherry Tortoni being one and MB another.

They are follows when they return to Randwick which plays much better these days

Cherry Tortoni looks like he needs 3200 meters.
