I was quite underwhelmed by Latrobe at The Curragh, but happy enough with Buckhurst at Leapordstown.
Unfortunately, after Leapordstown, Norway is very high on my shortlist, and I was looking to trim the shortlist, not add to it.
Thankfully can’t bet him just now, as he’s got entries all over the place, but interesting at 50’s.September 16, 2019 at 15:32 #1455412Mike007Participant

I wasn’t disappointed with Latrobe. Will get weight from Cross Counter. And knowing the young O Brien he’s peaking him for the big day down under.September 24, 2019 at 07:04 #1462464

I’m no nearer to a bet in this either Coops. The latest addition to my shortlist is Bin Battuta at 50-1.September 29, 2019 at 07:51 #1463314

I don’t think too many people were impressed by the win of Bin Battuta last night as he is unchanged at 50-1.
There’s no harm in keeping him on the shortlist though.September 29, 2019 at 18:34 #1463368KrisParticipant

With Falcon Eight no longer going here, I will pin my hopes on Yucatan at 40-1.October 17, 2019 at 17:53 #1470565Venture to CognacModerator

Despite my lack of enthusiasm over his last run, I took the 50’s for Latrobe, after Buckhurst was withdrawn.
My other pair, Prince of Arran (Reserve), and Rostropovich are both in The Caulfield Cup this weekend.
I’ve totally missed the 33’s for Rostropovich, but he’d be slight preference of that pair just now, but is best priced 20’s now, and I’ll go with him win only just now, but not as big a bet as Latrobe.
If Prince of Arran gets in on Saturday, and runs well, I’ll no doubt miss the 33’s on him as well, considering the time of day.
Latrobe 50’s EW

Finding the weights a bit confusing – I assume the top 3 on the starting list are there because they won the exemption races protecting them from the ballot, and then others within the max field of 24 but with a lowish weight are getting WFA or mares allowance?
As far as I can make out, if Downdraft can win the G2 Moonee Valley Gold Cup then he is likely to get a penalty -well Prince of Arran got 1kg for winning the G3 Geelong by a head from the identically UK rated True Self giving her 3lb, so if the UK 110 rated Downdraft can give 2 lb and a beating to the 115 rated Hunting Horn, he ought to get at least 1kg. That would leapfrog him from his 37th position safely over a bunch of other horses into the 24.
All he has to do is beat Hunting Horn- who is pretty much assured of a berth I think- can’t see HH getting battered to stop another Camelot winning the G2 and getting into the big race- and various Aussie “gallopers” (does that mean middle distance/stayer or just “horse” in general I wonder) chief among them Mr Not That Quickie.
And then all he has to do after that is win the big race.
What can possibly go wrong?
Downdraft 50-1 ew
Sheesh, my brain hurts. I only started looking at the Aussie races cos I can’t find a bet amongst the maiden hurdlers brawling in the muck at Galway tomorrow.October 27, 2019 at 16:22 #1472996
Constantinople’s form looking red hot Dazza. Had two G1 winners behind him at Goodwood now and the Volitigeur winner went on to win the Leger. 8 stone 7 and the magic man on boardNovember 3, 2019 at 09:33 #1473821
