It’s crunch time for La Amistad as far as the Melbourne Cup is concerned – she needs to perform this weekend or she’ll likely be out of those Racing odds for The Race That Stops A Nation.
It seems like a shame for a horse who has been so highly rated to be flirting with failure at this stage of the Melbourne Spring, but La Amistad has been steadily falling out of favour with punters, and needs to turn in a performance to get things back on track. So look out for Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
Preparing a racehorse for a huge marquee event like the Caulfield Cup is hard work and there’s more than a little bit of luck required in getting to the start line in peak condition. The rub of the green looks to have been against a few Caulfield Cup hopefuls this week, though, and there will be some names missing from the Racing odds when you check them today by clicking that link…
First of all, there’s Dandino, whose Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
There’s a new favourite in the Racing odds for the 2014 Melbourne Cup this week, as German import Protectionist’s odds have shortened to the point where he’s the horse to beat.
Taking the mantle from Gai Waterhouse’s The Offer, Protectionist now has odds of Read the rest of this entry »beside his name. The Offer has slipped to , and between them you’ll find Japanese stayers Bande and Admire Rakti, and classy prospect Lucia Valentina. Protectionist finds himself Read more »
After eight months out that must have felt like a lifetime to her owners and trainers, talented Harness Racing star Majorly Foxy Styx is set to make a return to the track and to the Racing odds, hoping to pick up just where she left off on a rising trajectory that could see her at the top of the sport.
And she couldn’t have got a better draw for her return to the track – she’ll be in Barrier 1 when she steps out in the third heat of the Sovereign Beejay Preux Chevalier Mares Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night, and she’s expected by many to Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
It’s amazing to think that Chris Waller, with all his success, has yet to claim one of the big four ‘Grand Slam’ races here in Australia. He has yet to have a touch of a trophy from the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, the Melbourne Cup or the Golden Slipper. And he won’t want to be reminded of that, particularly – those are some high-profile gaps in his huge trophy cabinet. With four runners right in amongst the horses with the shortest odds in the Racing odds for the Caulfield Cup at the weekend, though, it could be that Chris Waller is about to Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
It doesn’t seem all that long ago that we were talking about the possibility of Gai Waterhouse claiming a second Melbourne Cup in two years, and pointing to her runner The Offer’s early favouritism as her best chance. But things have changed over the course of the Melbourne Spring, and things have certainly changed in the Racing odds you’ll see at the end of the link there.
Not that The Offer is out of the picture by any means. He’s a Read the rest of this entry »bet on Sportsbet as of today, but there are Read more »
Punters aren’t just looking at Japanese stayer Bande for the Melbourne Cup on November 4th, but also to win the Caulfield Cup this weekend. He’s right up there amongst the horses with the shortest odds, too, if you have a look at the Racing odds we’ve got for you at the end of that link. He’ll have a check over by the stewards to get through, but once he gets a clean bill of health he’ll be looking to Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
After a thrilling evening that saw him and his wife watching their Majestic Major come home as a winner, Kevin Seymour would have had high hopes for the Gold Coast Cup at the weekend: he has three runners in the race, and all of them expected to be competitive in the Racing odds. But fate can be cruel, and it’s long odds against a repeat of last weekend’s joy after the barrier draws for the Gold Coast Cup.
Seymour’s three Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
He’s probably one of the most popular horses around, Red Cadeaux, and he’s incredibly likeable – he has a combination of bravery and talent that has cemented him in the hearts of punters here in Australia, and also staked out his place close to the top of the Racing odds, too. A couple of very close defeats in the Melbourne Cup to date haven’t hurt his profile at all, of course, and he’ll be back for another shot at the trophy in the 2014 edition of the race.
But punters won’t have Read the rest of this entry »Read more »
