Message: In the past few days a lot of the forum have been getting spiteful. It must be that time of the .... wait for it .... that time of the summer when they realise that the Aussies will give them no celebration, once again. And I warn you all, don't wait for the Tennis or a World Cup on these shores, for that matter. Only the fools would wait for that anyway.
You would think that after 10 years the forum would be worshipping me, with all the grand predictions and punting education, I have given them. All those Lays and look at the millions I have saved them with them and also now that they have learn not to back Odds-On in a race of 5 or more runners.
So back to the apalling state of quality of Aussie racing. I warned about that over recent years also. Rex's little love pet SYT just made his spring. Will someone please ask him what has it ever beaten. He is living on 2 or 3 Spring horses who are racing against mediocre horses.
Oh yes this was about a Group 2. The Villiers. What a disgrace for a Group 2. Don't tell me it is that time of the year. If it is that time of they year, they shouldn't be running a Group 2. This Group 2 has only one horse that has won on average at least $20,000 per start, and that horse has not won for years. Five runners have not even achieved an API of $10,000. In this country of over inflated prizemoney that is a disgrace and shows you what rubbish we continually get served in the name of Group racing.

Poor form and poor horseflesh is usually exhibited when the same horses go around in the same races each week, take turns at winning, have similar career stats and are often involved blanket finishes.
The very fact that the field doesn't reflect this suggests otherwise. You're shooting yourself in the foot with your own argument.
