Wonderful Thewizardofoz........

The Wizardofoz finally lived up to the hype and put away  a good field with consumate ease. Blizzard had a much harder trip and ran on gamely for second after racing wide. Joao Moreira rides six winners. I rated New Asia Sunrise a $2 chance, we backed it at $7 and it was an unlucky third. Stopped twice in its tracks, New Asia picked himself up to launch a third time for third place.


A great day of racing, small profit.

Hardly a banner day but we finished ahead on mid price +1.2 or down -0.15 on SP. Our members would rarely be taking SP as advice goes out early as we attempt to find value.

  • The last three meetings have been -2.75 +7.2  and +1.2
