Hi Jacki, fortune favours the brave.
Did you go with the big odds on the tote ( you now how quickly they can shrink ... & that reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld but that's another story ) or did you take the fixed odds & back it each way ( remember Holy Snow ) anyway whatever you have done i hope you have some fun with it.
I've got $150 the win fixed at 26 to 1.

Good Luck

If Wagner lets us down , i also like Miss Redoble in the last in Sydney at about 10 to 1.
So that's Randwick Race 9 Horse 7 & if you don't mind taking the short odds, Brooklyn Hustle should be winning race 4 at the Valley

I'm with you - Glen Boss - what can go wrong?  I bet on Steel Diamond at good odds recently and I think I'll go the quinella

I'm impressed... Steel Damond is certainly a good bet & good on you for  having the gumption to take the early odds. I just went for Miss Redoble at the price but conceding to your sage advice, i will also have a quinella.

Well what I mean is I picked her a couple of weeks ago when she came first at around the same odds as Wagner. I hadn't bet on her tomorrow yet exclusively but I have done the quinella.

Well that's a bit of an anti climax with Wagner being scratched.
So my default is Battle Torque also at the Valley ; R8 H4 ( AROUND 10 - 1 )

I knew it was a bad omen when Wagner was scratched ; anyway here are the results.

Brooklyn Hustle won comfortably.
Miss Redoble ran third ( in a tight photo with Steel Prince )
& Battle Torque well & truly lost the battle running a distant LAST !!!

Yep I cleaned up with a $7 payday with Ms Redoble.
Actually I had a funny day - I accidentally did a quinella for $51 instead of $1.50! Unfortunately you can't change a bet on the app and I only got half the required horses but boy if it had of come in I would have been laughing - it paid $120-1!!

Gidday Jacki,
Glad to hear that you had a little win.
I also do the majority of my betting on line these days, it is so easy to make a mistake, especially if you are in a hurry or maybe have Had a few to many drinks. ( of course the latter has never happened to me - it's always the computers fault )

Ok, so there are 4 horses that i like the look of at Flemington tomorrow.
South Pacific @ $2.80 ---- Race 1 Horse 4
Gamekeeper @ $17.00 --- Race 6 Horse 10
Dogmatic @ $ 10.00------ Race 7 Horse 2
Octane @ $3.00 ----------- Race 8 Horse 6
So my strategy will be to have an all up 4 leg place multi ( combined odds of around $24.00 ) & something eachway on the other 2 at the longer prices.

Good Luck

The Results - bit of a mixed bag again ;

South Pacific was terrible, started odds on but finished about tenth & that was the end of my "all up " gone in the first leg.
But if you backed Gamekeeper at the early odds, you should be way in front, his run was terrific, finishing third in a very good first up run which was well short of his preferred distance  ( follow this bloke as he gets out to longer distances, i reckon that he is a potential superstar )
Dogmatic, disappointed finishing fifth.
Octane won easily & i suspect that they will now keep him at Flemington to progress through the grades, continue to back him, another potential superstar.

Had a small win last week so sticking with the same strategy.
Two favourites that should be winning & two at each way odds.

So the all up place bet will be; MOSCOW RED, MAN OF PEACE, ROCK BEAT & JUNIPAL . ( odds 25 -1 )
MOSCOW RED & JUNIPAL each way.

Caulfield Race 1 Horse 2 MOSCOW RED ( 7 -1 )
Randwick Race 8 Horse 8 MAN OF PEACE ( 3.9 - 1 )
Eagle Farm Race 9 Horse 1 ROCK BEAT ( 3.8 - 1 )
Caulfield Race 9 Horse 2 JUNIPAL ( 15 - 1 )

I followed you however Man of Peace was the only winner. Today though I picked three trifectas which I have never done before! Keep the tips coming - I am having a ball!

The results ;

Moscow Red got pipped in the photo to run fourth.
Man of Peace was an easy watch & won comfortably.
Rock Beat was terrible & could not even run a place.
Junipal ran very well finishing third.

Good on you Jacki... wow, 3 trifectas in one day ... maybe you should be giving the tips!!!
My saviour was Junipal which i backed eachway on Thursday when it was paying $26 the win  & $9 the place.
I had a $50 bonus bet outstanding from sportsbet from last weekend so i chucked it on a ridiculous 6 leg all up win multi which was going to return in excess of 50k, the only leg i missed was plien ceil which was an odds on fav that went down at Caulfield.
I also backed Man of Peace & Rock Beat individually for the win so even though Rock Beat lost, i did finish up well in front on the day.

 Jacki, do you mind if i ask which mob you bet with on line?
