12 August 2012 259.1 – With the Professor enjoying time in Sydney and Daniel Eade on the injured list, Paul Gamble and the Gelding step into the breach to run the show. The Panel talk to the Professor and the Sydney Colt who are enjoying a relaxing lunch at Doyles on the Quay in Sydney on the Sportzfan Radio dollar.
The Gelding is ready and raring to go for Caulfield Cup day at his home track. Unfortunately, the weather may play a big part with Melbourne expecting a deluge of rain over the next twelve hours and many horses expected to be scratched because of the expected conditions.
As always the bets are on an each way and all up basis.
Race 2 Horse 1 – Skilled
Race 5 Horse 7 – Duble Anny (for the ladies at the Tennis club)
Race 6 Horse 2 – All Silent
Race 8 Horse 1 – Shocking (also for the ladies at the Tennis club) – quinella it with Horse 17 Faint Perfume
Race 9 Horse 1 – Hot Danish
You can hear the Gelding discuss all the racing news with the Professor on Sportzfan Radio at 12.30pm this Sunday on 88.3 Southern FM. Special guest this week by phone from Sydney will be the Sydney Colt.
Good luck and good punting and don’t get wet!!
25 July 2010 164.2 – Mark Fiorenti is quizzed whether Jon Bon Jovi is a realistic number 1 ticket holder for Melbourne Heart. The Panel has some fun with some of Bon Jovi’s songs and Gambo worries that the show is moving away from its sporting roots with the music discussion. Mark also previews the A League season thinking Sydney, Melbourne Victory and Heart will be the teams to watch with Perth Glory being the dark horse after the signing of Robbie Fowler. Mark talks about the aborted transfer involving Shane Smeltz due to Smeltz not liking the surroundings in China and thinks it is a bad thing for the League as Aussie players look unreliable. The Panel talk about the proposed 15,000 seat upgrade to Eureka stadium at Ballarat and wonder whether the AFL will fixture games at the venue. Is this an endeavour for North Ballarat to be a 19th team in the AFL?… which would then open the door for a 20th team from Tasmania. Gambo and Daniel ponder whether South Africa and New Zealand may also field teams in the AFL in the future or be preferred to Ballarat and Tasmania. Nick Tedeschi covers the NRL scene in Paul Dalligan’s absence. He thinks Melbourne Storm will need to let Greg Inglis go to keep other stars and some of their second tier players. The level of support for the Storm will depend on their on field performances. He also discusses the Danny Green/Paul Briggs “fight” and believes it is a disgrace that it went on. In Tour de Farce news, did Contador break race etiquette in passing Schleck when Schleck had a mechanical failure with his chain? The Panel thinks so. We sneak a different Dr Leslie CSA in just before the end of the show.
We cannot ignore the strong leads in 3 States on Saturday. The mail is primed to make us a profit and back on a diet of lobster.
SYD r2 n4 HALLEYS This neddy was scratched last week because it is absolutely flying on the track & they didn’t want to chance their money in the wet. If it lives up to track work it will be saluting.
MELB r2 n3 ANNIVERSARY My mail from a ratings expert says Gai has well and truly beaten the handicapper by taken this neddy south. The rest is up to the horse. Big money has already gone on with corporate bookies
BRIS r4 n15 RINGA RINGA ROSIE a pocket full of $100 notes after this one wins. Anyone who follows me on Twitter knows I have been waiting 2 weeks for this one. Set for this 1 race. Climb on the bandwagon.
Money lost, nothing lost. Confidence lost, everything lost.
Not sure whether I take it as a compliment, an insult or a threat that some of the best talent in rugby league is being poached by the cashed up AFL.
Fosters was cashed up once and they decided to buy Southcorp – and they have actually now managed to lose money selling beer to Australians. Possibly a first…
Part of me hopes that the AFL circus act follows the same path – I feel for those doing great things in the VFL. The next Podsiadly or Barlow could provide Western Sydney with their very own hero but they are being passed over as the AFL pillages other sports.
Why look for talent in your own backyard when your millions will buy you greener pastures down the road…
