Spring is in the air and the good horses are cranking up. Crio has a look at the weekend ahead.
Crio has a long association with the Cummings family – they went to mass together. How magnificently racing! He wants to know: which is your favourite Cummings horse? Noms please – more than one totally acceptable.
Wipe the sleep from your eyes – the Memsie meeting ramps up the quality and any race fans had better start to take notice. Crio & Co ensure we’ll all be “Rich Enuff” on Saturday night. Tips please.
This week’s Q is asking what players might been overlooked by the “Committees”. Who never got a shot but might have been a gun (or at least fun)?…from more serious nominations like Gerard Healy to fascinators such as Jacko (or future proposals – Bob Murphy anyone?)
Don’t wait until the horse has bolted. If you are keen to play this Spring, you’d better start paying attention and making some decisions. Randwick leads the charge this Saturday, with The Valley in support.
Footy games not enough to excite your interest? Let’s have more bells and whistles. We used to milk Mother’s Day in the Juniors, but the AFL reckon too much is barely enough.
It’s a teaser Saturday for those whose underperforming footy side is driving them to the racing section of the sports pages. While black type races are back on the card, don’t get too excited just yet advises Crio. Keeping your wagering powder dry and paying attention now, will pay dividends in the weeks ahead.
A captain’s game. A captain’s knock. Rhetoric or reality? What is it and how does it alter across the sporting landscape?
We’re back on the merry-go-round as early season black type is up for grabs at Flemington and Randwick – and Ballarat on Sunday may produce the pick of the weekend’s offerings.
Crio, as always, is looking for a nod or a wink (but not a blind horse).
Crio’s missed the boat on the explosion of interest in US Sports. He’s calling for converts to push their case for conversion.
A quick loop of the nation’s racing options as Crio cautiously welcomes the 2015-16 New Year.
The Silver Anniversary of Stevie Kolyniuk’s famous goal against Collingwood and the Doggies’ win this weekend is the trigger for reminiscence on those happy “Pie-eating” memories. Indulge!
Crio visits Pakenham, comments on Caulfield, anticipates Richmond v Freo and waits for Darwin. He is the ideal punting analyst. [Ladbrokes Bletchingly special is available – Ed]
Hero or zero? Crio witnesses a “Panenka” and marvels at the psyche of players who roll the dice – is it self indulgent and irresponsible, or are these the athletes who rise above the doubts of consequence that limits others?
Crio’s content to concede that racing’s unplaced in the Group One sporting options this weekend. But if you’ve got a winner…
Crio, tennis skeptic (surely not!), saw the second set tie break…is that the best 20 minutes so far this European summer?
“Finals Day” is a tribute to the VRC’s programming and a card worthy of scrutiny. Alas, that’s unlikely given the weather and sporting alternatives. But, a winner’s a winner and Crio’s ready to multi-task (if he can only get the remote!).
Crio reckons he’s got the answer for the unseemly squabbles within Tennis Australia.
Crio’s reduced to looking for quirky names or exotic places. The racing’s on simmer. Anyone willing to turn up the gas?
