Who is riding Shocking?
Who is riding Shocking? I have been thinking as to why MRodd was has not been on Whobegotyou and I want to know if he is on Shocking?!
Think it will be Simon Price
Corey Brown if Vigor doesn't get a run.
M Rodd cant make the weight.
Blake Shinn likely
Only if Vigor runs Browndog.
They should not replace a horse which, in good faith, has done what has been required to qualify with a horse who has failed to do the same, so Vigor will not be there if there is justice
Correct Browndog. Vigor should of run today to qualify.
Danny O'Brien all but had the saddle on him today, but decided to roll the dice. He alone must wear the consequence of that gamble
Had to win today and wouldn't have beaten home Viewed at the level weights let alone the other 2. He made the right decision, it's just some knob has decided to pay up last minute after saying he wasn't going to. O'Brien has done nothing wrong imo. 3rd in a Caulfield Cup should be enough imo... Internationals get too many favours.
Fact of the matter is, O'Brien has said all along that if he had to run Vigor in the Mackinnon and even had he won it he couldn't guarantee he would then actually run in the Cup simply because the horse doesn't back up well. O'Brien did the right thing by the horse and took a chance, the fact of the matter is Vigor (last run 3rd in the Caulfield Cup) should have been ahead of Gallions Reach (weakening 5th in the Bendigo Cup). I can't remember who suggested it in the Melbourne Cup thread but I completely agreed, why can't horses weights be adjusted both ways? Viewed wins the CC so he gets added a kilo, Gallion's Reach fails in a weak Bendigo Cup race and has terrible form coming in so why isn't Greg Carpenter allowed to say 'okay the horses isn't going as well as I thought he was initially (weights were done a long time ago now) or hasn't been running up to his past form so maybe I need to take half a kilo off him'. I don't think the VRC should change the fields as the order of entry should be final but it shouldn't have been up to them.
