Chalk Eaters Guide Review: 27th April

I’m finding $3.70 winners now- What a world we live in!

Irithea in Race 4 at Hawkesbury- WINNER

G3 Hawkesbury Crown

Thanks everyone for coming- Josh Parr won the speed battle and sent her straight to the front, had them all chasing on the turn, and put enough of a gap back to the favourite Multaja to win by a length, in a well executed ride to give Bjorn Baker and the folks at Darby Racing another winner.

If I’d known she was going to drift this morning I may not have included her, but as fate had it, Irithea started at $3.70- Cop that!

Mr Quickie in Race 7 at Caulfield- WINNER

Ben Allen never panicked, even when he was somewhat trapped on the fence rounding the turn, showing the patience of a Buddhist monk as he waited for an opening at the 300m, and when the seas parted, the favourite did the rest to win easily.

Declarationofheart in Race 8 at Morphetville- WINNER

On the turn I was filling my dacks like the Prime Minister in the Engadine McDonald’s in 1997, as DOH faced a wall of traffic and would have to wait for the gaps to fall his way, always a risky strategy in Adelaide.

Eventually they did, as Stubby Holder on Star Missile put in a big challenge on the outside, but Clayton Douglas turned Byron Pickett and deployed the hip and shoulder on his rivals, barging through and booting home the last favourite of the day.

I was disappointed Savvy Oak got scratched this morning… destroyed the value.

New Age in Race 7 at Ascot- Go wash the dishes

If Pike rides like that at the ‘Bool during the week, I wouldn’t be shocked if the beer cans came flying into the mounting yard.


Mandela Effect in Race 2 at Caulfield- 6th

Had as much life in the run as his namesake.
