Message: Think this poem by Banjo Paterson relates to many of you guys!
There's some that ride the Robbo style, and bump at every stride; While others sit a long way back, to get a longer ride. There's some that ride like sailors do, with legs and arms, and teeth; And some ride on the horse's neck, and some ride underneath. But all the finest horsemen out -- the men to Beat the Band -- You'll find amongst the crowd that ride their races in the Stand. They'll say "He had the race in hand, and lost it in the straight." They'll show how McEvoy came too soon, and Bowman came too late. They'll say Robl lost his nerve, and Brown lost his head; They'll tell how one was "livened up" and something else was "dead" -- In fact, the race was never run on sea, or sky, or land, But what you'd get it better done by riders in the Stand. The rule holds good in everything in life's uncertain fight; You'll find the winner can't go wrong, the loser can't go right. You ride a slashing race, and lose -- by one and all you're banned! Ride like a bag of flour, and win -- they'll cheer you in the Stand.
Message: A bunch of armchair morals over the weekend can't hurt his confidence, hopefully he can keep his winning form rolling. And i'm grateful he didn't knock about Pinwheel on the weekend - that horse is going to win me a lot of money this prep.
Message: Hmm thought so, Hugh Bowman's ride was worse on Rareified, cost him the race This is all the stewards had to say after Hughie steered Rarefied into a poket, held their by none other than K Mcevoy-
Over the final 50m Rarefied was unable to be fully tested when held up on the back of Neeson.

Message: If McEvoy does end up back in London it wont be with Godolphin- he didnt want to go back to Oz in the first place- he was told he had to. Godolphin are now set up with two trainers and Frankie as number 1, Atjebi as 2, Durcan 3.
Message: Look anyone defending McEvoy clearly doesn't follow racing closely. Aichi , straight race, only 5 horses go to the flat side and McEvoy gets pocketed. There are only four others with the vastness of the Flemington straight and he is pocketed. Thats it full time, all over , no need for further deliberation. That is a ticket on Emirates to London surely.
