    • Hey Gammalite, I'm not seriously saying he'd beat any of the Blue Army in the NZ Cup. If FM made the cup field he'd need to go an extended unbeaten run. Even if he was able to do that he'd still start at long odds. I enjoy math's and gambling. Truth be known, with FM only being a 3 race winner it would be a miracle if he even made the field. Because I rate him highly, if the TAB offered me 300-1 on him to win the Cup today, I'd happily put a couple of hundred each way on him and then cash out on half my wagers when he starts at 25-1 and ride out the rest. Still be a very nice earner. You will know about the glorious uncertainty of sport.  I'm now in danger of looking like a fool at about 6.55 pm tonight
    • I don't like the look of it , some horses look very uncomfortable on it to me, much of that is born out by the spread of horses in a finish. For me I find it a horrible watch , love to see some wagering and see if punters are enjoying though.
    • Can anyone tell me where the case is for the postive to MDMA or has it gone away?
    • Com, on Walt ?? You are seriously picking something obscure to stop the ALLSTARS NZ Cup winning streak. ?? Zip, Zero, Nought, Buckleys and almost none I rate your chance .  Granted I got surprised by ' Copy That'  did stop the brilliant run of 6 Allstars wins in a row,  last year 2021 , so I lost my little investment. SELF ASSURED a clear 2nd on that occasion (thought he was a certainty)  as defending Champion without a handicap. (unlikely to happen again.. lol very likely SA win this year.) SPANKEM 2nd for the previous 2 years has come back in good order . Hope he goes close as always gives his best. My question for you (Brodie, Ranga or other) is " Why hasn't NZ's leading Stable got any chances in this race ??  The NZ Cup. Classie  Brigade still there ? as (Dunn;'s)  best ? as a 9 year old ? after running 3rd in 2019 . Now 50-1 ???  lol.... Where are their Up and Comers ? Or do they just do 'Big Trots' these days and leave the Pacing to Nat and Mark to keep gathering the wins ?
    • What 2022 Australian Hurdle & Steeplechase Race Day Where Sandown Racecourse – 591-659 Princes Hwy, Springvale VIC 3171 When Sunday, May 22, 2022 First Race 11:30am AEST Visit Ladbrokes It is Australian Hurdle & Steeplechase Race Day at Sandown this Sunday afternoon, with a nine-race card is set down for judgement on the Lakeside track. With $350,000 on the line across three jumps events and six competitive races on the flat, this is a meeting plenty of trainers target in the lead up to winter. The track is rated a Soft 5, with the rail out 2m for the entire circuit, and racing commences at 11:30am AEST. Australian Chase – Britannicus The Australian Chase opens proceedings on Sunday and following a valiant second in the Brierly at The ‘Bool, the Symon Wilde-trained Britannicus is sure to take some beating. He arguably threw away the win when entering the course proper off Brierly’s Paddock, as he cornered awkwardly and lost six lengths and plenty of momentum. With a much more straightforward course on Sunday at Sandown, Britannicus surely just needs to show a clean pair of heels. The $2.20 with online betting sites looks a perfect price to load into. Australian Chase Race 1 – #2 Britannicus (6) 7yo Gelding | T: Symon Wilde | J: Arron Lynch (66.5kg) $2.20 with Palmerbet Australian Hurdle – Out And Dreaming Having finished just over a half-length off Saunter Boy in the Galleywood Hurdle, we are expecting the Andrew Noblet-trained Out And Dreaming to turn the tables on his rival at Sandown. Saunter Boy has had the better of Out And Dreaming in both of their battles this campaign by narrow margins. Our boy gets a 6kg weight advantage on Sunday, and that should be a crucial ingredient in his recipe for success. It is hard to knock his racing pattern; he jumps cleanly and settles close to the speed throughout. We expect Lee Horner will have the five-year-old gelding stalking the speed this time around, and as long as he sees out the 3900m, Out And Dreaming clearly looks the one to beat. Australian Hurdle Race 5 – #2 Out And Dreaming (7) 5yo Gelding | T: Andrew Noblet | J: Lee Horner (65kg) $3.80 with Unibet Best Bet at Sandown – Jucconi The Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained Jucconi has been climbing through the grades nicely this campaign and looks a clear best bet at Sandown on Sunday. The four-year-old gelding was arguably the run of the race when finishing second behind Skywolf on April 30 on a Heavy 8 on the Hillside track. On that day, it was incredibly difficult to make up ground from the rear of the field, and considering he is a genuine backmarker, it is hard to fault his efforts when going down by a neck on the line. With plenty of tempo expect in this 1400m event, the race looks perfectly set-up for Jucconi, who is yet to miss the top two in five starts, to continue his impressive start to his career. Look for Will Price to settle just worse than midfield, and with a strong finishing burst, Jucconi will prove too hard to hold out. Best Bet Race 8 – #5 Jucconi (6) 4yo Gelding | T: Tony & Calvin McEvoy | J: Will Price (a1.5) (61kg) $2.30 with Neds Next Best at Sandown – Vitruvius The Paul Pruesker-trained Vitruvius has found one better in both runs this campaign, but on Sunday he looks the best way home in the final race of the day. Having settle three wide with cover last time out, he went down by the barest of margins and was arguably a good thing beaten behind Sir Davy. Prior to that, he was desperately unlucky not to have beaten the smart Linas Legend at Bendigo when held up for a run at a crucial time. With Linda Meech on board from barrier 12, we expect to see Vitruvius settle worse than midfield, loop the field and ultimately prove too hard to hold out. The $3 with online bookmakers is a steal. Next Best Race 9 – #9 Vitruvius (12) 4yo Gelding | T: Paul Pruesker | J: Linda Meech (59.5kg) $3 with Bet365 Sunday quaddie tips for Sandown Sandown quadrella selections Sunday, May 22, 2022 2-5-7-9 8-9-13-14 5 9-11 Investment: $32 for 100% More horse racing tips The post Sandown racing tips, value bets & quaddie | Sunday, May 22 appeared first on Horse Betting.
