Message: any thoughts on to who is going to win this race? will it be a sydney sider coming down like fashions afield or mnemosyne or do you think the melbourne horses like doubting, pinezero, chetwynd south have the upper hand?

Message: I strongly believe Mnemosyne is the best 3yo filly in the land if not the best 3yo period. The question every year is how well the Sydney group can adjust to the Melbourne way of racing. We have seen no clear outstanding 3yo to date as each race produces a different winner.
Mnemosyne has really come good this prep and if she holds her form then she should win the 100 guineas. Fasions Afield had her chance to beat her yesterday and she got run down ... i dont see her turning the tables on Mnemosyne again especially as the distances rise. Sydney Owner is one from left field that could improve further, and Media and Carry on Cutie look like they're Oaks types more than milers.
The Melb. fillies look pretty even although Doubting won really well yesterday .. she could be the smokey.
Mnemosyne should win the Flight and stamp herself as the best of her age group and win the 1000 Guineas. A pity she'll be missing the Cox Plate because she is the only 3yo at this stage that i see as having some shot
Message: Doubting had a far easier run then Pinezero yesterday. Odds on Pinezero atm are about $71? Pine was runnig straight into the headwind the whole way while Doubting got the slipstream and just pulled out and went crack. Didn't put anything more onto her either.
Message: trackie, pinezero did have a bit of a hard run- but that was due to callows ride, but doubting was 3 wide the whole way and hates the going but like steve said she didnt like it, but to her credit she kept going, into the wind she was the 1st horse to not be in the top 2 around the turn and win it was a good run, pinezero is at good e-w odds though i agree... but if its dry ill be happy with our filly!
Message: Sometimes its better to be 3 wide the whole way. If it was dry and no-wind yesterday Pinezero would have won. At flemington she would most likely have been run down. She will get a mile on class. Not saying that she will win a big races but definatly a G race or 2.
Message: damian, a certentity beaten? come off it. i admit the interference did cost is a laceing. but as that happened it was about 2 and a half of pinezero and doubting. personally i dont think that it could of mafde that up. But did run on well despite being interuppted with. still couldnt of picked up the top 2
Message: No one better at taking horses from Sinny to Melbourne than JR Hawkes. Mnemosyne wins.
Oh and Camel. You spit on the track and Hollow Bullet is not playing. I hope it rains right up to about a week before Caulfield Cup Day......I might be able to pay off the mortgage such will be her odds!
Message: If Mnemosyne runs, she wins (providing Caulfield doesn't have its on-pace bias like it can have on TG day). As somebody else pointed out though, she looks like missing the race and going to the paddock after the Flight Stakes.
Pretty even bunch of fillies after her, Cayambe; Doubting; Jadescent; Chetwynd South; Pinezero; and Rewaaya. One other in the mix could be Jester Smoothie (Rory's Jester x Running Smooth (Marscay)). Won impressively at her first start at Werribee a couple of weeks ago when only 50% fit and is heading towards the Guineas.
Message: johno as im talking through my pocket i followed it closely through the run. was coasting on the turn and at no stage did the jockey put it in a spot where it could win. horrible ride, lucky to get the protest so my each way money came through. should have been wound up down the outside and would have one easily.

Message: Muirfield, the track on VRC Oaks day was dead. The track on saturday at Caulfield was under water. Dead is ok for her but she has shown that slow and heavy are not her surfaces. The only good run she has put in this time was on a good track in the Craiglee when a closing 5th. She needs 2000m on a good track. I have spoken to both the trainer and one of the owners, who are aquaintences of mine and they maintain she does not like tracks adversely affected by rain. I saw them on Saturday at Caulfield and they advised me not to touch her given the conditions. Super Impose was a great example of this. Never out of a place on a dead surface but absolutely hopeless on slow or heavy going.
