derby day (spring carnival)

derby day in the sunny state of victoria.. flemington racecourse and a massive card today

galah wins the first by a nose - saved a lot of stress for punters that one as some big bets had been posted and galah was part of many doubles and trebels

looking forward to seeing ATLANTIC JEWEL in race 3 today > got on at 1.4 and has been hit hard and now 1.32 on betfair... class act and she should handle the slightly longer trip and weight with no problem and make it 5 from 5

9 group races and almost $5m in prize money so a huge card.. plenty of good races to come

race 2 coming up > MIDNIGHT MARTINI at 8.0 looks the value

race 4 should see SEPOY win easily

race 5 has SOUTHERN SPEED amongst the principals

race 6 is the Victoria Derby and sees the fav Manawanui easing slightly as doubts about the trip remain; Induna is popular and has come in to 5.0 - I like the chances of Niagara as well and Zabeelionaire is worth a look at 26

race 7 sees More Joyous as fav but I like MOSHEEN at 4.8

races 8 & 9 look fairly open and none catch the eye too much

  1. atlantic jewel coasted home under a hands and heels ride and won by 7 lengths easing down!!
    superbly impressive

    sepoy just managed to win

    induna was very unlucky and still only lost by a small margin after being pushed about a lot; zabeelionaire snuck into 4th in a good run but the fav couldn't handle the trip as suspected

    mosheen was disappointing
