Daniel Eade’s tips for 23 July 2011

I feel like the Hickory basketball team from the movie ‘Hoosiers’, going up against the unbeatable South Bend!  In this case, this is me taking on the more experienced and knowledgeable Gelding.

Yes, the Gelding has his way of picking horses.  He likes to study the form guide.

I prefer to bet on horses that have a name I can relate to, be it a name that has a reference to basketball, Collingwood, a favourite movie or a quality TV show.

For my maiden voyage into the world of the ‘non-expert tipster’, I have only made one selection.


Race 4 horse 4 – Johnny Drama

The horse has good and bad form – either won two previous races or finished 11th in his last race.

For those who are not fans of the TV show ‘Entourage’, Johnny Drama is Vincent Chase’s brother.  The show revolves around the success and ups and downs of Chase’s career as an actor and his entourage.  Drama, his brother, is also an actor but far less successful and never willing to settle for anything but what he believes is the best for him and his career.

I suggest a $1.00 the win because if it comes second or third it really lost.
