The Chalk Eaters Guide Review: 13th July

In tribute to Jeff Lloyd screwing me over one more time, here’s his career stats from his wife Nicola

A mighty record.

Sunday Session in Race 4 at Doomben- 8th

I’d tell Jeff to piss off and hang up his saddle, but he’s doing that anyway.

The Sesh never looked a chance of winning, and the Stewards’ comments are fairly predictable;

“J. Lloyd reported that his mount did not show any early speed and as a result settled further back than anticipated and after being held up rounding the home turn and in the early part of the home straight ran home only fairly. “

“He added that the gelding is better suited when able to race up on the speed in a more genuinely run race and over a further distance than that of today’s event.”

“A post-race veterinary examination revealed no significant findings.”

TL:DR- He was a spud at the short distance.

Organza in Race 5 at Caulfield- 2nd

Crikey, Organza really will not win another race, despite ‘Willow’ urging us to forgive her yet again.

How about NO.

Spiritual Pursuit in Race 5 at Rosehill- 8th

In this spiritual pursuit, the equine lord said, “Come forth and receive eternal life.”

Instead, he finished 8th after starting $1.60, and got spat on by everyone.

Lordhelpmerun in Race 8 at Belmont- WON

Bravo Kirbs, you’ve vindicated your place on the JT’s Sporting Reviews Wall of Fame by riding a treble, and sparing me from a winless weekend.

Fantastic win under the 60kg, parking just off the speed, getting clear running at the top of the straight, and eventually overhauling Play Hard in the shadows of the post, despite the 8 kilo difference.

Crazy Craig’s Tip Of The Day

LAYING Primitivo in Race 4 at Rosehill- LAY SUCCESSFUL

Crazy Craig’s Crazy Formula to Landing a Lay.

Find top weight, see if they’re favourite, and go wild.

It worked again with Primitivo, as the combination of yet another slow start and the ridiculously slow speed killed pretty much everyone except Dylan’s Romance, who meandered away in the straight to win.
