It’s Turnbull / Epsom Week – not only is it an excellent racing weekend, but it’s also when we see the contenders sorted from the contenders ahead of the Spring Majors.
We’ve scoured the futures markets in search of value while looking at the big group ones, aiming to get to the feature race days with some overs.
We’re spending $ 50 each week and we’ll keep an eye on our live tickets as the spring progresses.
Here we hope for some futures replenishments 🙏💰
WEEK 8-28 SEPTEMBER
We didn’t have a runner on the weekend after dehair was scraped from the moir – unfortunately she was nominated which meant we made our dough.
On other fronts, however, it was a reasonably positive week with some runners putting in impressive runs ahead of their finish lines.
Forget that you won the G2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) on Friday night and it looks like it’ll eat up all 2500m of the derby. He is the same favorite in most markets now and we have secured a couple of overs.
Barb Raider won, as expected, in the Oaks Preview last Wednesday and she cut that too. Let’s hope that she comes out at 2500m.
The Spanish mission had a minor setback in the UK which meant it missed the first flight to Australia. As a result, he’s going to miss the Caulfield Cup – I’m not personally worried about his chances at the Melbourne Cup, but I’m going to put the weekly 10% he spends on him on hold until he comes to Australia.
Footlights was the big disappointment – he was terrible in the Derby Preview in Flemington and was acquitted. I just put it in the “Too good to be true” basket and hope he recovers.
As for this week, we have some hopes for a decent collection – She’s Ideall is included on big overs for the Metrop, while both Icebath and Hungry Heart appear to be live opportunities on Epsom.
Enough about the existing bets … it’s time for this week’s $ 50 issue 👇

$ 12.50 to win the Caulfield Cup @ $ 21 (Ladbrokes, Sportsbet, Palmerbet)
The two-time G1 winner has undisputed quality and seems to fuel this preparation. She won the Flight Stakes (1600 m) and Spring Champion (2000 m) in the spring of her 3-year-old year before she was “disappointing” as 3rd favorite in the PRC Oaks. Then she had a “disappointing” autumn in which she finished 6th in the Surround Stakes (1400m), before 3rd in the Rosehill Guineas, 4th in the ATC Derby and 5th in the ATC Oaks. Occupied place. The fact that such preparation was considered disappointing shows the appreciation it is shown! In that preparation, she finished a quick third behind Think It Over and Riodini (when she was then placed behind Verry Elleegant at G1 level) first in the 1600m before flying home to all Bar She’s Ideel over 2000m beat. She goes to the Metrop in third place this week and should be ready to make the Caulfield Cup after that. Incentivize seems like the one to beat in the Caulfield Cup, but when the bubble bursts with it it looks like great hope.
She is Ideel is really a very good mare and just keeps on delivering!

$ 10 to win the Caulfield Cup @ $ 26 (Sportsbet, Palmerbet)
Given the attribution I’ve just given to Montefilia, that clearly suits this girl. She took her time to pass her grades, but when she started racing at the highest levels, she more than kept up. She was a good fall G3 Adrian Knox (2000m) winner before finishing second at the ATC Oaks to Hungry Heart – she beat Montefilia with 1.4L. After that, she went straight to the Queensland Oaks and won devastatingly before she was taken away. Her first run in Newcastle, which only beat 0.29 liters in the G3 Cameron Handicap (1500m), has shown that she has come back in good order – she is one run behind Montefilia and is said to be on a Melbourne Cup path, but there is no reason why it cannot do well on the way through Caulfield.

$ 7.50 to win the Cox Plate @ $ 7 (TAB, Ladbrokes, Pointsbet, Bluebet, Topsport, Zbet)
She will be back in either the Turnbull or Hill Stakes this weekend, where she will undoubtedly do well – and most likely win again. Her last start win in George Main – her 9th G1 win – was extraordinary for me and she is on the right track for her grand finale at The Valley in late October. We saw Zaaki put down another marker at the Underwood over the weekend – an accomplishment that received mixed reviews. I thought it was a good win, but I have shown that he is far from invincible – I still believe this girl holds the coat as Australia’s best horse and it is up to him to take it from her. And given the price difference between them at Cox Plate, I’m happy to continue to support them.
WHAT A WIN!

$ 15 to win the Victoria Derby @ $ 15 (TAB, Ladbrokes, Sportsbet, Pointsbet, Bluebet, Topsport, Palmerbet)
You may have heard of this Kiwi 3YO’s half-sister … a handy mare named Melody Belle. He arrived at the Queensland Fall Carnival after an impressive second place on the debut and did well in the Sunshine State with placements over 1,400m and 1,500m and recording one of the easier wins you’ll see in a listed race. His first run behind Mr. Mozart in Flemington was not an event due to the inappropriately short 1400 m and he will race over 1800 m this Saturday in Flemington against people like Gunstock. He could use more for mine and the derby will be his main goal, but we will support him now if he runs well and shortens the back.

$ 5 to win the Melbourne Cup @ $ 26 (TAB, Bluebet)
Like I said, Spanish Mission is my top seed for the Melbourne Cup, but Delphi has been pretty good at both of its starts in this campaign. We supported him with $ 51 in early spring – in fact, I wrote for the first time in June that he was a potential Melbourne Cup horse. If he keeps building during this prep there is no reason he can’t be competitive on the first Tuesday in November. He’s nominated for Turnbull and Bart Cummings this week – wherever he goes, let’s hope for another promising performance.
