Rough tips and other bets...



  • @Hooroo said in Rough tips and other bets...:

    Polly drew barrier 12 at Te Rapa for Saturday. She will be at quite long odds I imagine.

    ABC on board.

    Hopefully ride her quiet in behind and flash home over the top like her last outing there. (Not sure if rail will be as far out either)

    Big unknown for us is if she will step up to this mile distance. They way she runs on after winning a race, suggests she will but you can't help but be cautious.

    I'll be having a go.

    me too, because i am terrible at punting (unless she wins, in which case i am a genius)



  • @mariner4life I doubt you are as terrible as me, luckily I know I am smalltime and limit my bets to under $10 (which has its drawbacks when you stumble onto a good 'un 😞 )



  • $17 and $4:40.

    Not bad odds! Tough field but

    Not tough enough for Polly Grey!

    Congrats, another great win!



  • @JK I only had $8 left in my account, $4 e/w...

    Congrats @Hooroo

    Cheers lads!!! Super chuffed. Not an awful horse.



  • So a box just arrived on the farm from a mate on the west coast full of carrots for the horse and a bottle of champagne for true-love. He was one of the few who got pick 6 so won a cool $27k from a $30 bet.

    What a kind gesture.



  • Polly back at Te Rapa on Saturday, same distance, same class. Up against the boys this time though and some performers in this race too. Opened favourite at $4.

    Mr Pickles is having his first start in race 4. I have absolutely no idea how he will go. He galloped with Polly yesterday and went hard early and got whiplash as Polly breezed on by for fun. So at least Polly is looking good.

    Won his last trial but true-love thinks the field he beat was really average. Physically, he looks fantastic.

    I will be having a go all the same but real money is on Pols.

    Wowsers! Money has heavily gone on her!! Into $3:20 now.

    Waiting for Mr Pickles fixed odds to be published

    Ooooffff!! $9:50! That is far too short! 🙂 Will be taking the tote money I think



  • Really happy with Mr Pickles. He ran it tough and held on for 4th. For a first start, it was really good. He will go again at Taupo with Ricky Baker.

    Polly over-raced for the first 600 and then got checked back to 2nd last and flew home for 4th as well. Obviously disappointing result but can't fault the horse, it was a super run. I thought it might mess with her mind a bit but she ate every last scrap that night and got straight into her breakfast which is really pleasing. She goes back to Te Rapa in two weeks. The King will be on Holiday I think but ABC may be back from Singapore as licence isn't sorted yet (I think)



  • I was sitting at a table with Stephen Marsh and he and his mate were asking about Polly. Anyway his friend said, "OK, I'm putting $1,000 on her" I laughed and thought nothing of it. But he did!!

    I then found out after he was a massive punter and that $1,000 isn't a big bet for him.



  • Back on the horse, so to speak. Mulligans has recovered from her "mishap" and will contest Race 1 of the Cairns Cup carnival this weekend (a runner on Cup weekend!). 1250m maiden.

    And we've drawn barrier 2! So better distance, good gate.

    She'll jump at monster odds, and i promise (and expect) nothing.

  • Wow this forum really has everything. Took me a few years to find the fitness section (hasnt changed me from being fat). Now punting!

    Will keep an eye out for your hot tips. Last couple of months I have been doing matched betting through this mob [https://bonusmoney.com.au/munmun5/pro](link url) fortunately have the time being self employed to get in the mix basically locking in profits regardless of the result or leveraging off bonus offers. Still building my bankroll but up 300-500 a week which is good. Dont have to follow form etc just the software they provide for all the bookies offers.

    Mate got me onto it when he moved back from the UK was doing it over there made about 30k (in pounds). Found out you can sign up to aussie bookies from nz accounts so Im going to do the sign up offers for my families accounts. Nice to be positive from the bookies.

    Not trying to spruik this so take it down if you want.

    yeah well you can fuck right off. There is no place for a punter of your type around here. This is strictly a "giving money to corporate bookies" type arrangement. That's why we post when we have good weekends.

    I would much rather hear about Hooroo having a sudden massive day and getting royally fucked up.

    Hey now listen....

    The bookies haven't cut me off for a reason.....the 13 years of mug betting previously!

    Ive lost plenty....but my big losses have come off the back of alcohol,drugs,melbourne cup and the Crown Casino high rollers room. But thats a story for another day.

  • @Hooroo I see Polly Grey is running again on Sat.

    Yeap! Good draw. Coming to the end of her prep as she has lightened off a bit so win or not she will be freshened up after this race.
