Crazy Colin’s Picks of the Day Review: 24th July

Great finish in the Bletchingly at Caulfield, as Sansom won without Delilah for the first time since the film was released in 1949

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

From Sky Racing Australia

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!
