    Ollie is a ledgend in the big races. Thinking trifecta of Americain, Dunaden and Lucas Cranach....not sure....
    The weights in this gym just aren't heavy enough... would you mind sitting on my face while I do some crunches?

    OK guys tomorrow is Bendigo Cup, has anyone else looked at the form? I have quickly and liking Puissancce De'Lune, Silent Surround and Sky Raider, but will need a little closer look at the form tomorrow to make a firm decision....

    Yeah i looked at Bendigo cup field. crap race this year so will give it a miss.

    Derby fields worst I ever remember in terms of lack of top names. And that goes for last 30 years.

    Yeah i was thinking the same, except for the punting comp we are running for work i think i will sit the Bendigo Cup out.

    Although will have to have a crack on Derby Day, best race day of the year by far.....Although as you said some big names will be missing, but in saying this there have been a fair few retirements and injuries to some big names in the lead up to the carnival which has effected this.

    Yes, as long as we an get a winner does not matter lack of depth.

    I think i had woorim at $14 in last last year, which resulted in a great day, a rare good Derby day for me given the usual depth of top class horses.

    i am warming to Red Cadeuax though, but will wait to after Saturday.

    Will have a small bet on Fiumicino in bendigo cup and hope it runs a place at least.

    its got me stuffed why americain is favorite. I expect its connections to start whinging about dry track in next 3-4 days.

    Melbourne Cup always has good odds even the favourites will generally pay over $5 due to amount of money on the race and then amount of money for different horses.

    yes, got 4 to 1 on Lets Elope when she was a certainty, as long as she did not fall down, one of my special horses over years of ups and downs.

    harder than a broken nose to pick. I guess that keeps the odds good.
