Racing is currently testing the “Any Publicity Is Good Publicity” mantra, and Crio has the wrap on all the less-than-positive news. He’s also turning his mind to Flemington.
Crio asks what numbers have a special significance for you in sport?
Crio tantalises us with Group 1 racing at Sha Tin that is bigger than Texas (Qld) – but only just. Avoca, Balnarring and Stony Creek are recommended, but so is finding a winner. Can you help shine a light into the punting darkness?
Crio thinks ‘team bonding’ is over-rated. Does liking your team mates help performance? Let us know what you think.
Crio takes a quick whirl around the country, then comes home with a scenario that some might consider unlucky.
Have you looked beyond the obvious when seeing tracks around the nation? Crio waxes lyrical.
The Spring Carnival may be over, but Crio will be taking trip to the Valley on Saturday (plus a nod to Ascot) and be off to Ballarat for the Cup on Sunday. Get on it.
Crio trades the Rails Ring at Flemington for the tails ring at the Meadows. An insight into the world of greyhound racing from our all-purpose punting adviser.
Ah, the name game – titles appropriate for your role in life. Cardinal Sin, anyone? What are your offerings?
Crio usually enjoys this weekend, treating is as a top notch country Cup Day rather than comparing it with Flemington’s fleshfest. Join him in embracing what the weekend has on offer across Victoria.
Crio wants to know your favourite greyhair/greybeard/greyhorse/greyhound/greybondage performers. Nominations please.
Crio reckons Saturday’s fixture looks to be too long in length and too short in class. Still, he’s prepared to make a couple of suggestions. Anyone else ready to help keep him in the black?
Crio relives an epic ride on Saturday and ponders the true meaning of the Melbourne Cup, the tipster’s nightmare.
What else could it be this week but The Cup? Remember your first?
The bookies got the biscuits last week. Good for Crio’s boss if not his cadres. You can’t keep a good punter down, and there will be tips galore from the Goolwa gallops to Budge’s bolter and Cowshedend’s curse down the Straight Six.
Was one of your best wins the result of something other than picking the form? Who’s prepared to admit to the success of a whim, a mistake, or dumb luck?
Crio urges tipsters to wait and check out track conditions on Saturday afternoon…but is prepared to make a few predictions regardless.
The goal square full of streamers. The desperate search for discarded tickets when the protest siren sounds. Colour and movement or the disposable society? Crio asks us to reveal our true allegiances: oral expressive or anal retentive?
Crio offers sound advice to the racing aficionado. Competitors appeal only for the fillies.
