The Chalk Eaters Guide Review: 17th October

This genuinely happened at Ellerslie (Photo: Kenton Wright)

You know you’re in the shit when the jockeys going over the jumps are yelling out “FORE!”

So on Thursday, Glen Boss said Classique Legend was the only horse capable of defeating Bivouac in The Everest….

4:15 on Saturday rolls around, and Classique Legend for 81-year-old Les Bridge scores a thumping win in The Everest…. and Bivouac runs 2nd.

If you ask me, that’s just a Hall Of Fame jockey knowing what the hell he’s talking about.

On that note, you can sleep easy knowing that Kerrin McEvoy will be recognised as a Hall Of Fame jockey sooner rather than later, especially with 3 Melbourne Cups, a Caulfield Cup, a Golden Slipper, and now 3 out of 4 wins in The Everest.

And, this is a favourite backers guide, so what a great day for all Chalk Eaters – The Everest favourite salutes, and Caulfield Cup favourite Very Elleegant salutes in the Cup, beating 2nd Favourite Anthony Van Dyck.

What a deadset fantastic mare Verry Ellegant has turned out to be.

To win 6 Group Ones when the shadow of Winx is still looming over Chris Waller’s stable is the sign of a top notch elite racehorse.

Have to say I thought I did okay today, even if the Chalk Eaters laid a goose egg.

I plucked out Power Scheme in Race 1 at Caulfield, Fituese got money back for 2nd, Deprive was never really in it, then Classique Legend and Gytrash running a place restored order for me, and we ended up ahead of the ledger.

Just watch California Zimbol do absolutely nothing next start.

She is that kind of pissant mare when I’ve got the money down.

Anyway, I can’t fell too disappointed – Fituese was given every chance in the run, but just couldn’t run down the Zimbol, despite stalking the mare all the way through the run.

Another 50m maybe makes the difference, but it wasn’t an 1150m race.


Deprive in Race 6 at Caulfield – 4th

I hope WWE Hall Of Famer Donald Trump was straight on the phone to congratulate Mr Trumbull on winning that Group 3.

To quote Mr 4th at the Waterford TAB….

****IN’ 4TH AGAIN!

Turns out you don’t have to go to Broome to find Camel racing.

It does seem appropriate that Freddy Kersley would win the Northerly… albeit with bloody Taxagano at $81.

Broadcast by Sky Racing

Remember when I plucked out Taxagano for the Perth Cup back in January, and he wound up running 3rd?

Now he produces a bloody Group 3 win at 1400m 1st Up in the Spring.

The First 4 on the WA Tab paid $102,839.

As they say in the classics, What can you do.

Besides have a laugh at this stupid caper, I don’t know what else.


The Cheetah’s Willing Tip Of The Day


Osamu in Race 3 at Caulfield – 2nd

From Racing.com

I reckon, you could see, let alone feel, Osamu start to strain under the weight of the Cheetah’s money as he hit the 100m, and he was certainly Endanger from that point onwards.

I still don’t think The Cheetah has actually got a decent piece of mail from ‘Chris’, or his associate who is always on the phone to ‘Chris.’

Can we actually be sure that The Cheetah is in contact with ‘Chris’, or is just one of the universe’s greatest bullshit artists telling The Cheetah and his associates to pump money into the TAB?
