Couple of horses that like the distance but Light Fantastic sticks out
An interesting race today, I would love to have a 10% share in any of these horses.
Will it be a slow pace sprint home, or will somebody try and be Regal Roller :) ( What a Caulfield 1400m Horse)
I think that the race will be over on cornering and that the horse that is 3 - 4lengtsh in front ( Theso) will not get pegged back.
In fact I am willing to bet 1 days tips, on anybody that wants to pick a horse to beat Theso, THAT YOU HAVE NOT TIPPED ON KING TIPPING.
If Theso, beats your selection home, you buy 1 day of my tips and Vice Versa, I will limit this to 5 diffirent selections and 5 bets in total
PLease not if Theso is scratced or bets are void and if your selection is scratched the same.
I dont think ths is agains Forumn rules, we set a precedent in LIGHTHORSEMAN forumn :)
There were a few good runs coming into this...
Light Fantastic - Absolute cracking run first up when really hit his straps in last 100m when he balanced up at The Valley. Loves the TD (2 from 2) which includes a win over The Hussler last prep. Super horse. Only worry is Newitt from an awkard gate. Should be able to slot across with most of these getting back.
Maldivian - In that same race against the Hussler ran a blinder first up finishing only .9L behind LF. Meets the grey flash .5kg's better for that and interestingly Kav has kept the blinkers on first up to keep his mind on the job. Barrier 2, doesn't look to be a lot of pressure, and the use of blinnkers might be nearly enough to turn the tables on LF.
Von Costa Da Hero and El Segundo both ran great races last start with El running the quickest closing sectionals of the race. Goe's well 2nd up, but I'm prepared to risk him after injury and such a long lay off.
Light Fantastic is a standout for me and a quinella with Big Mal as the saver.
Supprisingly Master O`Reilly rates strongly here, a fitter El Segundo also rates well. Maldivian & Alamoso rate well and should run well first up, but the class and weight ratings show that a return to form by Light Fantastic is more than likely. Outside of them the ratings say don`t bother with the others for the multiples. Good Luck and lets hope for a cracking race.
ok andy i will take you on , my bet is light fantastic to fly past your nag in the last 100m do we have a bet andytaker
yes we do Macca1
If both our selections run, And Light Fantastic beats home Theso then I will buy 1of your days tips, if Theso beats Light Fantastic home then you buy mine.
your on andy and good luck
There is no pace here so Theseo should dictate and give these a spanking I think. Von Costa De Hero will be steaming home late.
My tip is we'll be watching them go round on Sunday, so keep your diary free boys...
With recent returns of two horses from 12 month lay-offs (admittedly in lesser grades) straight to winning form I won't be writing off El segndo HorseMiller. Light Fantastic/Theseo the duet of the day.
Going to stick with Light Fantastic. I love El but prefer him at the Valley. Maldivian is a top horse but like him after a run or 2. Theseo the Sydney horse to beat sounds like 2 great trials. andytaker you got me as well im in.
Andy your on aswell i like von costa, von costa vs theseo 1st over the line ok.
Von costa de hero the only three year old in the race ..comes in with a light weigth and perfectly drawn to miss the early hussle ..should come across and get a nice sit on the pace ..out of the last ten runnings of the orr stakes ...three year olds have won five of them..to quinella this Alamosa a mutiple group one horse and oliver on board he will be there in the placings..the older horses like Maldivian may find this a bit short as I think know he is more getting towards a 1600m horse or longer this campaign.
Ah the WFA scale at its best. I used to use st pattys day as the cut off for the 3y.os but maybe that day is moving earlier. They are well suited from now on.
There is a good 5kg between the top 3 and the rest of the field in class. The only query for mine is Light Fantastic who is yet to prove himself as a solid Group 1 horse. While Theseo and Sirmione have won at Group 1 there wins rated 5 or so kg below the Wfa standard win rating.
Yes macca/chunky we all win already there wont be no horse in the race spelt theso u beauty lol jokes good luck andy.
Too short for Zarita, but apparently she's flying. Might throw her in for 4th in my pick4.
Most likely taking LightF 1-out in my big6.
andy how about a slightly different bet. I will bet you Theseo doesn`t finish in the first 4 for the same stake.
Let me make that clearer. If Theseo finishes 1, 2, 3 or 4 I will buy your tips next saturday. If Theseo runs and finishes 5th or worse then you buy my tips next saturday. Obviously if Theseo is scratched the bet is off. Also i`m expecting El Segundo to be scratched as well, Colin Little won`t decide if he wants to run till friday, but is keen to go to the valley next week insted.
el segundo class horse in the field will take a lot of holding out on first up run good luck guys
Doc just a warning. In a tvn interview Colin Little said he would have to except with El Segundo because entries closed lunch time today. He said the horse may not run as he prefered to go to MV next week but he had to consult the owner and a decision will be made friday if El Segundo will run or not.
"There is no pace here so Theseo should dictate and give these a spanking I think."
if Theory i completly agree, but that's was supposed to happen in the Cox and it couldn't even head Big Mal,
