Last year I tipped Almoonqith. Based on Caulfield cup effort it looks like I was a year early. I'll stay with it.

When taking offence to statements I usually first review the source of the statement. No offence taken here.

for those who bet by numbers alone.

 

Saddlecloth winners.

 

      Numbers 4 and 12 are the most successful boasting 11 wins.

 

  • No 1 with 10 wins
  •  
  • No 6 with 9 wins
  •  
  • No 5 and No 8 with 8 wins
  •  
  • No 2 and No 11 with 7 wins
  •  
  • no 18 has only 1 winner

top 4 last year were

 

19

8

2

10

 

  • Barrier draw is important
  • Barrier 18 is the only gate never to produce a winner since barriers came in in 1924.
  • The most successful barriers have been 9 – 12 with eight victories from 2006 – 2015

Wow. It seems the Melbourne weather is unpredictable. Who would have thought.

If it rains or looks like it I've dropped Bondi beach and Qewy in to complete the three.

Nice news flash Ben... You should have been at the Nats and witnessed it 1st hand.

 

Going for value with the prospect of a big payout.  Happy to lose $100 to possibly get back 4-5 K

 

Jameka

Big Orange 

Almandin

Heartbreak City

Bondi Beach

 

Boxed First 4 for me.    If it p1sses down for an hour before the race, Big Orange out and Grand Marshall in.


The key to success is to learn to do something right, then do it right every time. Oh I wish.....
