Just a quick update leading into the weekend and one of my favourite racedays Super Saturday at Flemington.
We haven't been able to crack it for a win in recent weeks with Classy Al, Alawa and Al Hamza all finishing in the placings. I am sure a win is just around the corner.
AL HAMZA - Geelong tomorrow.
ALAWA - Wagga Sunday
CRAFTY EVA - Werribee Monday.
A Big days racing at Flemington - highlights are the Australian Cup and Newmarket Handicap.
I have been very bullish about PROTECTIONIST despite the fact all the papers and his trainer want to hose down the hype. The Cleaner will set up the race for him and I still think Protectionist will win. I will be putting on a 5 horse trifecta - 1,2,3,4 and 8.
I am not sure the Australian Cup has been as strong in recent years as it was in the past. Check out the racebook from the 1979 Australian Cup in the news on our home page - won by Dulcify. Some of the all time greats ran in this edition.
LANKAN RUPEE is back to his best. Opposition will have to run better than their previous best runs to beat him. Terravista to get closest (although it is a hard race to win first up).
Happy punting and good look to all owners with runners.
