Although I’m thinking of wandering down to the Valley for a couple (is that bets, beers or races!??) this Saturday, there are plenty of reasons to suspect that few others will keep me company. School hols are nearly over, there’s a bunch of meetings on AusDay next Thursday and the fields are modest – best keep the powder dry for when the quality returns in Feb. The best part of being a tipster (urger!) is that you can make suggestions that you’ll not follow yourself – in this case suggest MV4 No1 all up MV9 No8. Both will start fav and probably salute.
Winx’s return gallop notwithstanding, doubtless the racing buzz this week has centred around the extraordinary last at Morphettville last Saturday – as PeterB has suggested, have you even seen anything like it? Here’s his post following last weekend’s discussions…
“ I have a memory from the 70’s of Michael Miller riding a heavily backed speedster from an outside trap over 5f at Cheltenham. Jumped a length in front then crossed straight to the rail knocking down a half dozen rivals inside him. Got the chocolates and 6 months from memory. Craziest ride I had seen until the Cartwright carnage.
Can you remember it and have you got any other examples of dodgem car demons?”
