Someone watch the run of Eagle Command in this race. Flemington race 8, 2nd-10th-2011. Its the grey caught 3wide about 7th spot in running. I too liked Costly Commitment big time but when you watch the run of this horse, its just huge. He is caught 3 wide the entire trip on a leader biased track, he tracks about 5 horseswide atleast on the turn and is passed by Costly Commitment and actually gets 2 lengths put on him by that horse, if he wasnt a genuine stayer he wouldnt have gone back past this horse but he was pulled to the outside and picked up again to run staright back past him and closed on the winner, a 100m or so he was even with the leader. This horse is currently 21s for the Derby and im gonna make a big call and say if he gets there he will win it. His win at Kyneton the start before running down a pretty handy horse Quench The Thirst was also huge. Hope a few get on and it pays off!
Was a super run mate as was the winner, Some great Blackbooker on Turnbull day!
Yeah take nothing away from the winner, deserved the win thoroughly.
You are on the money, I backed the it at huge odds in this race when it ran 2nd, it's previous run where it won rated very highly, albeit in a weak field, at Flemington it's run was great and it is still very much learning how to race, green as grass but the potential outstanding.
Was on it at Flemington at $40/1 and thought it was gone at the corner where it kept getting checked from pillar to post only to see it fly home to grab 2nd with daylight the rest. In my opinoin the horse was huge (fat) when it won and went into its last race very big aswell i read an article today where Portelli said they are considering going into the Derby without another run i was hoping to get better than the $15 it is currently but considering in the last 2 days it has come in $11 from $26 i may have to take the $15!
Hey beerad, still 17s on sportsbet
11s now boys and still running tmorrow in geelong classic
will it win tomorrow commando? i got $5 yesterday... had a decent go!
Well Horsemiller has filled me into the usual rail and leader bias at Geelong so i hope it isnt the case but pressuming the trck runs true I think he only has one danger and thats Induna. Into 4s already so thats looks nice. Put a small bet on him tmoz into derby, i think u get 4 by 11 and they give u bout 60% for same horse doubles so bout 27 or so
Has anyone heard if Portelli is continuing on to the Derby with this fella? If so is the barrier draw Tuesday or Wed? Cheers in advance.
