Just watched a replay of Race 7 and Tinamou. I went hard on it but missed out on watching it. He missed the boat at around the 700m mark where he had the oppurtunity to push Bossys mount of the way but no He doesnt he gets caught in a pocket and is behind a tiring horse whilst the bird is off and gone. When his hot he is hot, but when he is cold he is very cold.
The same could be said about Boss on Stratella. in a pocket shuffling back looking around as others past him, at least you came second
I was all smiles when Trojan Lass got up. Eased the pain haha... I aint sure about Boss for today. He hasnt got a chance of winning except for one.
What was McKevoy doing, although he started badly, he got into no position! No inititive shown what so ever!!
Nicconi clear 2nd pick.
No pace in the race really KM had every chance early to just work it up the outside why he chose inside is beyond me,
Fravashi is one of 'those' horses.. Once it knuckled out the gates, McEvoy had nothing to lose.. he knew he wasnt going to be blamed if the horse lost so he did exactly what he wouldnt have done if the horse had jumped clean - went inside horses!! Rode for luck, the horse resents being inside other horses so it wouldnt go through the tight gaps therefore it hit the line a close up 4th without ever getting out of 2nd gear...
In my humble opinion I think Snowden has got this wrong.. Fravashi lays in for me..He should be contesting Sydney races as I dont think he gets this way of racing... Drumbeats should be here instead of Sydney...
didnt have his foot in one of the irons when they jumped.
Your a harsh man GD, he nearly ended up on his Tijuana Brass and only had one foot in the irons. Hard to balance let alone place a horse in running when that happens.
my question to you Steve is this, Why didn't McEvoy have both feet in the irons once he was in the barrier?
He lost one as the horse slipped, don`t know if you saw the replay but as the gates opened the horse pretty much ended up on its chest and crawled out of the barrier. When a horse slips like that its not unusual for a jockey to become unbalanced and loose an iron.
Of course u were on Niconni
I had a very decent go on Fravashi, thankgod for yesterday!
horse ran fastest last 200m in the race without ever being tested.. if McEvoy had pulled wide in the straight it couldve been interesting..
I guessed you may have been stung mate. Have you seen the results of my class and weight ratings today? 4 tips. 3 winners and a 3rd place.
yeh, your looking good today mate, I am still alive in the Big 6 today obviously, and have a substantial double on later in the day!
Good Luck i hope your double includes `The invader grass girl` because she`sa morale today.
Agreed MoneyTalks, McEvoy should have followed Niconni when they peeled out.
#%$^ shocking ride.
