BLOODY HELL, CAN WE GO ONE DAMN WEEK WITHOUT HALF OF OUR RUNNERS BEING SCRATCHED…
THAT’S 3 WEEKS IN A ROW THAT COLIN HAS LOST A RUNNER AND I’VE BEEN LEFT WITH AN EGG ON MY FACE, TO GO WITH THE EGG I COP TO THE FACE EVERY DAY.
Although, I should note that Zakat wasn’t exactly scratched at Randwick back on the 10th, as the meeting had been abandoned a few races prior.
Still, it’s a bloody outrage is what it is, because Crazy Colin puts in all that time and effort to give ‘youse’ a laugh on a Friday night, and then those bloody trainers just go and ruin the fun.
Seriously, it took me five whole minutes to make this for Colin in MS Paint yesterday:
WHY, TELL ME WHY DAMMIT.
Each-Way Pick of the Day Lashoni was scratched from Race 6 at Doomben
You can’t convince me that Lashoni wouldn’t have finished ahead of Fuji Flyer, who ran 3rd at $34 behind the quinella of Luskin Hero & So Clever, which was a completely expected result as they were the two market leading horses, with the only problem being that So Clever was $2.25 and Luskin Hero was $6.
Anyway, another bloody Each Way pick, and a ‘Race 6 Number 9’ that we never got to see…
Which was still a better result than the Pick of the Day.
Pick of the Day: Nerodio in the HG Bolton Sprint/Race 8 at Belmont – 6th
Absolutely nothing wrong with the ride from Laqdar Ramoly, and I would argue he gave Nerodio every possible hope up on the speed after getting a good jump, but at the end of the day, the horse was as flat as the earth before Christopher Columbus hopped on a boat in the 1400s and figured out the world existed west of Europe.
The moment the pressure went on, Nerodio was just totally underwhelming, especially given he started at $2.20, but couldn’t even pass that absolute no-hoper Reflectivity, who got within a freckle of leading all the way and winning at $71 on fixed and $96 on the tote, but second-favourite Amasenus saved ground and exploded late to win the HG Bolton for 2021.
With this complete lack of form Crazy Colin is in, to use a saying that my friend Mr Alfonse once heard from an American tourist, he’s so unlucky that if he fell over, he wouldn’t hit the ‘effing’ ground!
