Only the three tips this week, and fortunately for me, to use a baseball parlance, I batted at .667 for the day.
Take that, Ted Williams.
Noble Boy in Race 4 at Eagle Farm- 6th
Back to Singapore, Bossy.
Anyway, missed the start, never in it, Victorem flew home and killed everyone in one of the best wins anywhere in the country.
Deprive in Race 7 at Randwick- WON
What a tough choice the Blue Army faced- Send Deprive to Queensland in a tough Listed Race, or stay in Sydney and start the favourite in a Listed Race.
Even on the Heavy ground, it was still pretty much a perfect mirror image of his last win- Sat next to last on the turn, Rachel King cuts back to the inside, and he responds to the urgings and powers home to rack up yet another win.
One to watch in the future, I’d like to hope.
Quackerjack in Race 9 at Randwick- WINNER
I’m not afraid of giving Joshy Parr a big wrap on this pisstake guide, and if there was a Chalk Eaters Brownlow, he’d be leading by a street.
Superb job to cross to the lead from Barrier 14 without going nuts, he managed to control the speed, pinch a break in the run, and even under the 60.5kg, comfortably held his own in the straight.
There’s some strange phenomenon about favourites winning the last in Sydney- Last year between July & September there was some eight consecutive Saturdays with the favourite winning the last.
CRAZY CRAIG’S TIP OF THE DAY
Iconoclasm in Race 8 at Flemington- POO
He was best backed runner at Flemington for pretty much the entire day, smashed in from $3 to 2.20 in the 1/2 hour before the race.
Everything was right on course for a fantastic result… and then he reared at the start and missed the kick, fell back to last, and never featured as a winning chance.
I imagine Crazy Craig let out a wild roar from the Macedon Ranges that could’ve reached Colac.
