Great Happy. Be a good lead up race this weekend with runners starting off different metre points. And the favs giving the others a start. 

Read on another thread that Oscar B is out of Dominion. Do I have this right in Globe is part of the Majestic Man syndicate ... ? He was 1 of my favs I followed 😄 Yay he got his Group 1 win, multiple too!

4 weeks to go & altho Sundees Son is the BEST horse nom-ed, this is racing after all. Have to be in it to win it & as we saw with the recent Victoria Cup anything can happen. And the favs can get beaten. Its not over til the winner goes past the post in 1st place!

Ill be waiting til closer to time before selecting my pick.

Globe is indeed part of the the syndicate and they had Monty Python a few years back as well before it headed off to Oz.

I was. But because I pulled the pin on work, I had to make sacrifices. But, Mark Noonan knows I love my trots so keeps me up to date on all the horses , so Im a member by proxy kinda speaking. We have some nice young trotters coming through so just keep a look out for that Griffins syndicate nxt to a Williamson name.

Monty went to race but came back and is retired to a large hill paddock south of Oamaru - one syndicate member goes out to groom him and he still comes running over for a pat.  Father Christmas stayed there and just a week ago had his first win for new owners in Queensland

Watching the replay of last nite the 2 horses that closed in, in final 400 metres well, were Majestic M & Oscar B.

Oscar B closed in better but bear in mind he started off 10m oppose to Majestic M 20m.

Overall times in rank order of whole field taking into consideration handicaps. Here are the fastest times in order. Noted Majestic M wasn’t pushed around in final stages. Check this out Sundees Son 1 whole second faster! 

  1. Sundee Son - 3.15.6 - 20m
  2. Majestic Man - 3.16.5 - 20m
  3. Bolt 4 B - 3.16.7 - 10m
  4. Oscar B - 3.16.8 - 10m unruly

Those standing starts are giving me the heeby jeeby's !   

two favoured runners not even getting going in the race's last night.

Muscle Mountain 'Out of it' at the start. and the other trot fav Regal Attire, had Mark tipped out of the gig at the start. there goes a few more punters never to be seen betting at trots again?  

Already talk about whether SELF ASSURED is gunna 'step-clean' in the Cup too. (after last years debacle with Copy That , etc)

If NOT RUNNING AS HANDICAPS past 10 years why the Hell are they not using the Mobile then ????? to  get them all away safely in the DOMINION and the NZ CUP . 

Sure!, it's 2 miles already , but I think they could handle a 300-400m slow score up ok ??? they're not that weak, AND  would be WAY better.

No he wasn't, but Brad insists on going down to the pylons. Got caught out at Alex Park a few times and got out late to snatch a couple of placings in big races.

No doubting Sundee is the benchmark though, but MM will be back with a vengeance.

Yip well you & ya mates are still IN IT TO WIN IT.  As said its NOT over re Dominion until the horse is 1st past the post. I would not be writing MM off by any means. Especially with trotters, can break up, get checked, and standing start. Oh get stuck behind a slow one etc.

Was thinking you most likely will go to Ashburton Mile, think read today on HRNZ that Sundees Son giving it a miss. Regardless MM hard to get past over the mile.

I thought that was an excellent run first up.

 

Not everyone would agree with it as it wasn't flashy like Oscar but with a month to go and more racing to come he looks good.

Also, once Muscle Mountain brings his presence to a race things are not going to be easy for any of them during the running. Sundee's Son is no value at his current 1.60 - no thank you.

News from Phil about MM, is that he left a little condition on him so will take a bit to get him screwed down properly, but he will be come Cup time. 

Thanks for the latest update re MM. 

Signing out for weekend.

All the big guns are set to meet on Friday night at Addington.

Handicaps will possibly play a part but Sundees Son is the fittest of them so should be a great race. Looking forward to seeing how Mataderos goes against the very best too.

Liking Majestic Mans chances at Ashburton next up over the short distance with that draw to lead.

He should be hard to roll be off and gone like this won't he

peace out running GIF by Mane 'n Tail

Gotta good draw , 3rd up should be to good for this lot over his pet distance. Blood tests came back perfect so he is good to go.

Surprised he isn't starting fav. Based on its his pet distance & he beat his rivals on time last start & he has the draw. And speed to lead. 

How do they think they will beat him ...  ? Unless this track has a LONGGGGG straight like Addington & Menangle .... If NOT, then not sure how they think they will pick him up in time. 

Well lets see Monday ...

Speaking of Slick trotters like one of your fav's MM, another Nz trotter you liked at Cambridge just had Australian debut now. MH (Majestic Harry)

After farting around with 3 wins from 40 starts in 2.05 mile rates for 2 years at Cambridge , Brittany Graham from SKY racing knew what to do first up Albion.

Cut him loose!. Roared away by 6 lengths down the back with a 28 second quarter, then just a nice easy jog up the straight , in by 4 lengths cruising. very nice. not missed by the punting elite either. backed in from 8's to 4's. very nice.
