Message: Great tipping once again RC, i respect your tipping. Dont be too disappointed with Dubosc he was very unlucky and this season was just about getting his head right, as still learning what its all about and some very bad rides from jockeys in several of his races getting nutted. Hes out for a spell now but will come back much better in the autumn

Message: Love your work Fergo. I reckon your phantom call will be the intention. Be interesting to see if Lloyd does throw Mourayan in though. He'll certainly be pesky if so. Gees, if the Valley is playing leaders that day, and they pour it on, something like that could sneak it at huge odds. Unlikely, but don't know. All the fun of the lead-up.
I'm starting to warm to this filly after a solid first up performance at Rosehill 2 weeks ago where she just ran out of puff the last 50 finishing 3rd only beaten 2xLengths by the Waterhouse trained Urban groove..she's being prepared for the 1000 Guineas by all accounts, so accordingly has been sent down to Melbourne to get some practice.
This weekend she lines up against a strongish bunch of 3 yr old fillies in the Thoroughbred Club Stakes over 1200m. She has drawn a terrible alley in 14 unfortunately, & Hugh Bowman is engaged to ride her.
Depending on how the track plays, the outside alley's could be an advantage, particularly if the track gets enough rainfall, but if the track stays firm and there is a noted leaderish bias, then she will seriously have her work cut out and may just go round for the workout.
She's $13 & $3.82 on Fixed odds markets, she might just be worth an ew stab, but definitely one to follow through the carnival for mine.
ROLL THE BONES - $51.00 & $13.50 for the Thousand Guineas.

Message: Weight Special, Now that you have raised the sectional for Its a Dundeel, you should consider the fact that his 36.38 was recorded on a G3 surface over 2000m at Randwick in the racetime of 2.02.63. Compare this with the performance of More Joyous in the QEII Stakes also run in 2012 over 2000m at Randwick on a G3 surface. Her final sectional was 34.55, but in a race time of 2.05.33. The race time difference equates to 2.70 seconds, which in lengths at 7 lengths per second is equivalent to almost 19 lengths. So I don't think it is valid for you to claim that Its a Dundeel could not overhaul More Joyous or even Pierro based on a finishing sectional alone. For that matter, why can't Proisir out speed them all, he lost by a whisker to It's a Dundeel in the Champion Stakes, three weeks after recording a final sectional of 34.32 in the Spring Stakes in Newcastle? For the record, Savabeel ran a final sectional of 35.98 in taking out the 2004 Cox Plate in a time of 2.06.88 on a good track, (racing as a three year old). So You Think's three year old effort was 35.31 in a considerably faster 2009 Cox Plate of 2.03.98, also on a good track.

Message: I thought I posted LET GO LENNI in this thread a couple of weeks ago, but perhaps it's not this thread but another...
From Barrier 1 on Saturday in the Guineas he should jump and run and be the leader on the paint, no one wants to tip against Pierro for obvious reasons, but I really think this horse LET GO LENNI will still be right there at the line causing those trying to chase him down, a right royal headache...hopefully he can hang on for a place at least, I'll have 1 the win 3 the place on him this Saturday.

Message: Weight Special, Proisir is not just a Choisir, possessing both stamina and speed, he might be a throwback to Encosta Delago who's dam was a Star Way broodmare, the same sire of Our Waverley Star, who certainly didn't run too bad when second to Bonecrusher....
