FORGET ABOUT SMOKIN’ ROMANS UPSETTING EVERYONE IN THE TURNBULL, FORGET ABOUT THE DEAD HEAT BETWEEN ELLSBERG AND TOP RANKED IN THE EPSOM:
NO COMPROMISE WINNING THE METROP, ZOUGOTCHA IN THE FLIGHT STAKES, LUNAR FLARE GETTING A SPOT IN THE MELBOURNE CUP BY WINNING THE BART CUMMINGS…
OR STAFFORD’S LAD WINNING THE KALGOORLIE CUP…
BECAUSE CRAZY CRAIG’S VALUE PICK EXCELIDA STORMED HOME TO WIN THE ROSE OF KINGSTON STAKES AT 10-1, GIVING OUR RESIDENT LUNATIC YET ANOTHER WINNER!
Some horses can’t win at $2.50, but Crazy Craig can pull winners out of his backside at 10/1, and that means I can keep blaring out Elvis Presley’s Good Luck Charm, a theme tune that seems to keep on delivering in spades!
This is even funnier than when Crazy Colin took over the Chalk Eaters picks for a few weeks in 2020, kept blasting The Hucklebuck as his theme tune, which somehow led to him tipping a winning hat-trick over the space of 3 weeks.
What a fantastic win for Excelida, she was sitting off the leaders and just winding up to go bang at the Clock Tower, and she duly responded to Michael Dee, who finally got his first win on the mare at the 11th time of asking (After 7 placings), in what was the mare’s 14th attempt at a Stakes win.
So that’s 2 Value Pick winners in the space of 3 weeks for the Picks of the Day, after failing to land one for the best part of 3 months, and funnily enough, do you remember who was Crazy Craig’s Value Pick 3 weeks ago in the Naturalism at Caulfield?
None other than Saturday’s Turnbull Stakes winner Smokin’ Romans.
Could’ve had a $20 winner if he stayed the course, but $10 will do nicely.
As for the other Picks…
Fireburn = 4th and offering SFA, like most Golden Slipper winners when they turn 3
False Statement in Race 7 at Kalgoorlie = 4th, and he was another 20 metres away from running Top 3
