The Professor’s red hotties for Moonee Valley races on 26 October 2019 and the Weekend Parlay

The Professor was on the money with Mer De Glace in last week’s Caulfield Cup. Too bad he didn’t put that horse in his weekend parlay as the other two legs saluted. He’s hoping to go one better today on Cox Plate day at Moonee Valley. The track is rated a Good 4 with the rail in the true position for the entire circuit.

Gelding’s Caulfield selections for 18 October 2015

Mar 13 2011 021The Gelding’s attention is split this weekend. He has one eye on New Zealand racing, because Malcolm Turnbull is there…..no not really. The real reason is because his horse Del Rios is racing at Rotorua.

His other eye is on his home track at Caulfield where the prestigious Caulfield Cup is being run. After a big day at the track on Wednesday he is feeling confident with his selections.

One thing the Gelding doesn’t like today is the Caulfield Cup starting at 5.40pm – disgraceful he says and a sign that the media has taken over horse racing!

As always the bets are on an each way and all up basis.

Rotorua

Race 2 Horse 7 – Del Rios (an each way special for the ladies at the Tennis club)

Caulfield

Race 3 Horse 1 – Ball of Muscle
Race 4 Horse 2 – Ambience
Race 6 Horse 6 – Sadler’s Lake
Race 7 Horse 8 – Under the Louvre (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 9 Horse 6 – Mongolian Khan (also for the ladies at the Tennis club)

Good luck and good punting!

Friday musing – Golf, Cricket, Spring Carnival…….

Chris Barwin HillsThe thing that really piqued my interest in the sporting arena this week was the story about Phil Mickelson calling 16 year old US born Australian Ryan Rufflels (the son of former tennis player Ray Ruffels) to try and get him to Arizona State University on a golfing scholarship. Apparently Ryan plays off plus 6 and in a recent monthly medal at the Victoria Club shot rounds of 10, 9, 7 & 9 under. Wow! Golf seems to be producing some real prodigies at the moment and hopefully Ryan can go on and create a name for himself. Which country would have the bragging rights? I think that while he was born in the US, he grew up in Australia and took up golf in Australia, I consider that to be enough to claim him as an Aussie.

It was interesting to see that less than 25,000 people for the International T20 match against South Africa last Friday at the MCG. That is a disappointing crowd and casts a bit of doubt about the overall interest in the cricket coming into a summer where Australia will be hosting the One Day World Cup. Apart from the Ashes that is always well patronised, the cricket does seem to be losing its mojo. I have mentioned this in the past and in my opinion, it has a lot to do with the year round coverage of cricket throughout the world. The football is played over a period of six-seven months and then there is the build up and anticipation for the following season which is all very well staged managed by the AFL. The international cricket season has started with very little sense of anticipation and not helped by the recent test flogging at the hands of the Pakistanis. Time will tell if they can build some momentum into the World Cup.

The major races of the spring have now been completed and there was a number of notable performances, however, I do not think that any horse stamped its authority on the spring. There was not a dominant sprinter, there was not a dominant weight for age performer and there was not a dominant stayer. Having said that the “one off” performances of Terravista, Adelaide and Protectionist (you could also add in Admire Rakti in the Caulfield Cup) where truly great performances.

Have a great weekend!
