This next race at Flemington is the first of a series of races in the next few weeks, where you start to identify this years Derby winner.

As we are stepping up in distance, you start to get some horses that have "questionable" form suddenly improving, as the extra distance was what they needed. I was half interested in Stars Of Carrum to fit this mold before it was scratched.

I'm going to have a quick look at the big roughies to see if there is any hope there.

Both Cosmic City and Pieropan, who ran 1st and 2nd to each other last start, have the potential to improve a level in a longer race.

They are both $101/19.

I will probably do my First 4 bets with them as 4th anchors.

I’m getting creamed at Randwick, albeit with roughies. I think I put too much emphasis on the heavy track, expecting there to be some long shots salute.

These are the comments for Winx on Sportsbet 😂

Who is better looking, Tom Cruise or Ryan Gosling? I am out of ideas, and superlatives for this mare...

Yeah, you can get some good divs, even with Winx winning, you just have to find the right surprise behind her.
This time it was Youngstar, unfortunately.

Aylmerton used up the petrol tickets before hitting the straight.

Good to get one of my green other bets up, from the bonus bet post.
I was worried they'd all bomb!
