Ojai didn’t attract a great deal of interest in the World Gym Castlereagh Kirkham Plate (1000 metres).

The James Cummings-trained galloper started the day as a $15 chance and got to $17 just minutes out from the jump. She would start at $13.

Stablemate Contemporary ($2.90-$2.70-$3.10) dominated the hold with 53 percent of the total investment on his back.

Of the rest, Shirvo ($31-$17-$19) was the subject of late specking.

BETS: Contemporary $3,000 @ $2.90 MULTIPLE TIMES, $3,500 @ $2.70, $2,400 @ $2.70, $2,000 @ $2.70


The money all week suggested Kitzbuhel was the one to beat in the TAB Highway Handicap (1800 metres).

TAB went up $11 on Wednesday but that didn’t last very long as astute punters launched into the double figures. Today, $5.50 was on the table in the morning but continued support saw the gelding start a $4.80 top pick.

Lord Desanimaux ($6-$5.50) was the second most popular runner in terms of money held (behind the winner), while The Fossil ($12) and Whatsin ($10) had plenty of support.

Freedom Square was also popular in a wide open affair.

BETS: Kitzbuhel $1,500 @ $5, $1,500 x $3,500 e/w @ $5/$2, $1,000 @ $5 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,500 @ $4.80 TWICE, $1,000 @ $4.80 MULTIPLE TIMES

BETS: Lord Desanimaux $2,500 @ $5.50, $2,000 @ $5.50 TWICE

BETS: Freedom Square $1,725 @ $5


In an interesting betting affair, Mazu was too good in the Daily Press Brian Crowley Stakes (1200 metres).

There was good support early in the day for the Team Snowden runner, which saw him firm from $4 into $2.90 at one point but in the final stages of betting, he blew badly to start $3.70.

Able Willie was $2 this morning and peaked at $2.70 before a late rally saw him jump $2.30. Overall, he was three times as popular as Opresident ($8.50-$7) with Mazu behind those two.

BETS: Mazu $1,200 @ $4.20, $2,400 @ $4, $1,200 @ $3.80, $1,334 @ $3.10

BETS: Able Willie $3,000 @ $2.40, $2,900 @ $2.30

BETS: Oh President $1,000 @ $7 TWICE


The money for Pandora Blue was spot on in the Midway Handicap (1200 metres) and ensured it was a horror result for TAB.

One of the first horses backed this morning, Pandora Blue ($4.80-$4) was the subject of consistent money throughout the day to the point where she overtook Air To Air ($3.90-$5) as favourite.

Overall, the pair were easily the most popular and accounted for 61 percent of the total investment.

Rathvilly Miss ($12-$8.50) caught the eye of eachway punters while Undeniable ($7-$8) held more money than any other runner bar the two favs.

BETS: Pandora Blue $1,000 @ $4.20 TWICE, $10,000 @ $4, $2,000 @ $3.90


Exoboom was one of the few horses tried to beat the hot favourite Emerald Kingdom in the Robrick Lodge Filante Handicap (1400 metres).

Giving Team Snowden a double, Exoboom ($8-$6) attracted some nice bets at the price but still only held less than a sixth of what was riding on Emerald Kingdom.

The Queenslander, which jumped a $2.50 favourite, was smashed in from $3.10 earlier in the day and was one of the best backed runners all afternoon. He held 52 percent of the total investment.

BETS: Exoboom $4,000 x $1,000 e/w @ $6.50/$2

BETS: Emerald Kingdom $3,000 @ $2.50, $3,000 @ $2.40

BETS: Criaderas $2,000 @ $6, $2,000 @ $5.50


Another heavily backed fav went by the wayside, this time Shibli, in the Geyer Handicap (1600 metres).

Chris Waller’s rep went $4.40 into $3.20 and was smashed late in betting, attracting a number of big bets and going around with 56 percent of the market.

Shibli was the only one to hold six figures with TAB Fixed Odds and held six times what the winner, Ruby Tuesday, did.

Ruby Tuesday ($10-$13) was actually the second most popular galloper with TAB customers specking the mare throughout the afternoon.

BETS: Ruby Tuesday $1,000 @ $10 TWICE, $1,000 e/w @ $10/$3

BETS: Shibli $5,000 @ $4, $1,200 @ $3.60, $3,000 @ $3.30, $4,000 @ $3.20 TWICE, $2,000 @ $3.30 MULTIPLE TIMES


The big push for Hush Writer went astray in the Clubs NSW Tattersalls Club Cup (2400 metres).

Hush Writer, $10 in the morning, was sensationally backed and smashed into $3.90 second pick. Zeyrek ($2.40-$3.40) blew out thanks to the late support for Hush Writer but still held more than double what the second fav did.

Torrens ($19-$23) didn’t have much support and only held slightly more than the rank outsiders Our Bambino ($126) and Olympic Gaze ($81).

BETS: Hush Writer $6,000 @ $5, $2,500 @ $4.60, $2,300 @ $4, $2,000 @ $4

BETS: Zeyrek $2,000 @ $3.40, $1,800 @ $3.20

BETS: Cepheus $3,000 @ $5.50


They piled in to Hilal leading into the Bondi Stakes (1600 metres).

The talented son of Fastnet Rock was the one they wanted to back all week. TAB initially went up $3.60 on Wednesday and the money started to arrive not long after betting commenced.

That continued all week and again into today with Hilal going $2.50-$2.30. Such was the weight of money for him all week that overtook Coastwatch ($2.90-$3.70-$4) for favouritism a few days ago and the margin between the pair kept growing.

Overall, money for Hilal accounted for 58 percent of the market.

BETS: Hilal $10,100 @ $2.40, $10,000 @ $2.30, $6,000 @ $2.30, $5,000 @ $2.30 TWICE


There weren’t too many horses backed to beat the favourite in The Invitation, however, Icebath was one of those.

The Brad Widdup-trained mare began the day at $8.50 and bottomed out at $5.50 before jumping a $6 chance.

She was the second most popular galloper in the race behind Entriviere ($3-$2.40) which was hammered. The Kiwi mare held nearly four times as much as the winner and was responsible for nearly half the total investment.

BETS: Icebath $5,000 e/w @ $6.50/$2.20, $4,415 @ $6

BETS: Entriviere $4,400 @ $3.10, $2,950 @ $3.10, $2,000 @ $3.10, $4,500 @ $2.60, $10,000 @ $2.50, $3,000 @ $2.50


It seemed as though every punter was trying to get out on Gravina in the final event on the program – the Southern Cross Group Handicap (1200 metres).

The Godolphin galloper was hammered throughout the day, backed from $2.50 in the morning into $1.95 at the jump. Going around as the most popular galloper at Randwick all day, Gravina was responsible for nearly 60 percent of the money.

Quantico ($7) hovered around his starting price for most of the day and was third most popular behind the fav and Belucci Babe ($5.50). Gravina held five-and-a-half times what the winner did.

BETS: Quantico $1,000 @ $7.50 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,000 e/w @ $7/$2.10, $1,000 @ $7 MULTIPLE TIMES

BETS: Gravina $10,000 @ $1.90, $9,500 @ $1.90, $8,000 @ $1.90, $3,500 @ $1.90



Semillion was a double-figure odds winner of the first race on Cox Plate, but that’s not to suggest the well-related colt did not have his admirers. A $9.50 chance in the opening market, Semillion got out to $21 before being backed in to a starting price of $12. One punter had $2500 each way at $12/$3.50 on Wednesday. Runner-up Lady Harlem was an early drifter – $7.50 out to $12 – but had backing late to start $10, while third placegetter Nobel ($6) was the most popular runner with TAB, accounting for 20 percent of the hold.

BETS: Semillion $2500 e/w at $12/$3.50, $1000 at $12, $500 e/w at $17/$4.80

BETS: Lady Harlem $750 x $350 at $10/$3.60

BETS: Nobel $1300 at $5, $1000 at $5.50


South Australian visitor Dexelation defied a betting drift to take out the second race. A $6 chance when the market opened on Wednesday, he jumped at $8.50. Starry Legend got in as tight as $2.30 on race morning after opening at $5.50 and while he drifted late to start $2.70, he still accounted for 64 percent of TAB’s fixed odds hold.

BETS: Dexelation $3000 to place at $2.40

BETS: Starry Legend $2000 at $5, $952 at $3.10

BETS: Starry Legend $6,000 @ $2.80, $3,000 @ $2.70, $2,000 @ $2.70


The upsets continued when Dream Queen took out race three at $13, but there was interest in the Lindsay Park filly who hit a top price of $17. Initial $3.50 favourite Robodira was unwanted in the 30 minutes leading up to the jump and started $5 equal second favourite with Larkspur Run, who was $6 in to $5. With the drift for Robodira, third placegetter New York Baby started $3.90 favourite after opening $6. New York Baby accounted for 42 percent of trade, 25 percent more than the next most popular Our Heidi ($5.50).

BETS: Dream Queen $500 e/w at $16/$3.90,

BETS: New York Baby $2000 at $3.90, $1000 at $3.90, $1000 at $3.80 TWICE, $2000 at $3.70, $1000 at $3.70


Favourite backers hit back in a big way in the Red Anchor Stakes when Generation justified some strong support to get the money. Responsible for 52 percent of trade, Generation started $2.20 after going up $3.40 on Wednesday. TAB took multiple bets of more than $2000 on the colt, including one bet of $5000 at $2.30. Dosh, who opened $3.40 equal favourite, was a significant raceday drifter to start $5.50.

BETS: Generation $2000 at $2.80 TWICE, $2000 at $2.50, $1500 at $2.50, $2000 at $2.40 THREE TIMES, $2000 AT $2.30, $5000 AT $2.30, $3000 AT $2.30 TWICE, $2500 at $2.25, $4000 at $2.20, $3000 at $2.20, $2000 at $2.20 THREE TIMES.


A strong move for the previously-unbeaten Maracana was foiled as blueblood filly Mokulula broke her maiden in the Group 2 Fillies Classic. A $15 chance on Wednesday, the daughter of Dear Demi hit a high price of $19 before being backed in to start $12. Heresy was $3 out to $3.20 but started favourite with Maracana ($6.50 in to $4) the subject of extremely strong support, including two $10,000 bets at $4.20 and another bet of $5000 each way at $5.50 and $1.95.

BETS: Mokulua $2200 at $11, $500 e/w at $14/$3.40, $500 e/w $13/$3.40,

BETS: Maracana $5000 e/w at $5.50/$1.95, $10,000 at $4.20 TWICE

BETS: Heresy $2300 at $3.10, $2000 at $3.10, $9000 at $3, $2000 at $3


The two outsiders of the field fought out the Group 2 Crystal Mile with $16 chance Just Folk scoring a narrow win over Begood Toya Mother, who was $23 into $18. Just Folk opened at $13, got to $18 before tightening in to $16 at the jump. Favourite Elephant, who finished third, was easy, drifting from $1.60 to $1.90, but was still responsible for 55 percent of trade. Best Of Days ($7 in to $6) was a well-backed second favourite, but the favourite’s stablemate Rhinoceros ($9.50 in to $8) was the second most popular runner in terms of percent of money held, attracting 15 percent of money wagered.


Forgot You was the best bet of Cox Plate Day for many and while the margin wasn’t great, he did enough to justify strong support. As short as $1.75 earlier in the day, he started $2 and contributed to half the hold on the race. He retains his place at the head of Victoria Derby betting, at $3.50, and is $101 in Melbourne Cup betting. Runner-up Commander Harry was the outsider of the race after being $71 out to $101, while third placegetter Jungle Magnate was also easy at big odds ($16 to $23).

BETS: Forgot You $2200 at $1.95, $2000 at $1.95, $3000 at $1.80, $2500 at $1.80, $5000 at $1.75, $3000 at $1.75, $2292 at $1.75, $2250 at $1.75,

BETS: Commander Harry $100 at $81, $100 e/w at $81/$15, $170 at $81, $100 e/w at $81/$14.


The punter who had Pondus as the last leg of a multi that was going to return $147,000 would have been on good terms with themselves after he was backed from $2.80 into $2.20 but the favourite could manage only fourth position. He was the last leg of the $1640 multi that started with Jonker and Imperial Lad last night and included Forgot You, the winner of Race 7 today. Lunar Flare was slightly easy ($10 in to $8.50 out to $11) but was the third most popular runner in the race, accounting for 12 percent of trade. Pondus (37 percent) and Floating Artist (16 percent) were the most popular.

BETS: Lunar Flare $1000 at $11 TWICE, $500 e/w $9.50/$2.50, $2000 at $9,.

BETS: Pondus $10,000 at $3.80, $5000 at $3.80, $10,000 at $3.40, $8000 at $2.25, $5093 at $2.20, $5000 at $2.20


He had to survive a protest and State Of Rest landed some good bets in winning the Cox Plate. A $51 chance when inserted into the market following the release of nominations, State Of Rest was a $10 chance after the barrier draw, opened $6.50 following the scratching of Zaaki on race morning but was easy on raceday and started $8. Anamoe opened $3.10 in the revised market after Zaaki’s scratching but end up starting $3.50 second favourite behind Verry Elleegant, who was $3.80 into $3.20 before starting $3.40 favourite. Zaaki, who TAB last month paid out on in the Cox Plate, was a $3 chance when scratched having taken up 33 percent of the market in the lead-up to his scratching.

BETS: Anamoe $4000 at $3.40, $3000 at $3.30

BETS: State Of Rest $2287 at $13, $2213 at $11, $2500 at $7.50, $5300 at $8.50, $2000 at $8.50, $2000 e/w at $8.50/$2.36, $3000 at $8

BETS: Verry Elleegant $5000 at $3.80, $10,000 at $3.70, $3000 at $3.50, $3000 at $3.10 TWICE, $6380 at $3.20, $20,000 at $3.20, $10,014 at $3.20, $10,000 at $3.20


Flying Mascot landed a long-odds move when the four-year-old mare took out the final race on Cox Plate Day. A $21 chance in the initial market (which included 22 cents worth of deductions), the Tom Dabernig mare started $8.50. She was $13 on race morning and got as low as $7 throughout the day. Although easy in the lead-up to the race ($3.50 to $4.40), Annavisto accounted for 26 percent of trade.

BETS: Flying Mascot $700 at $9.50, $2000 at $7.50.

BETS: Annavisto $3000 at $4.60, $7200 at $4.40, $2500 at $4.20, $2500 at $3.70.
