Methven at Ashburton - Sunday


Recommended Posts

Unlucky for the Methven fans, the meeting today is now at Ash Vegas. 

Just the one pick for me today; Race 9 (4.14pm), number 12, Beyond The Horizon.  Got the chocolates for us last week at odds, and should go another good race again today ($14's and $3.30 to run top 4). The only thing I don't like is the draw, number 1, second row, from a stand. Just don't want a starter's assistant hanging on to its head at the start, which I never like seeing.

I said the one pick, but I will add the stablemate Some Time ($21's and $5.50). Could also run a race at odds in the same event. I loved the dam, Some Direction back in the day. She was a 4 legged Eftpos card. 

I think Gambling harm awareness week has finished, so get stuck in. 

Good luck to all.

I see there is a 30kmh wind in Ashburton at the moment so expect to see Franco Hatton run his last half in 51.6 😂

It feels like my study for the grass at Methven is out the window so might have to look at reliable horses with decent draws in that wind like Rachel Daytom and Random Spur in the first.

A few Woodend watches today, namely Masterofthemanor with Purvis, Moons Way with Newman and Uncle Chan with Edmonds. Will we see Tetrick like turnarounds with these horses? The TAB think the fresh air will do them wonders so have offered short odds for all of them. Don't blame them either.
