    Frankie Zackey….It would be of great help if trainers of 1st timers could voice their opinions on the day of the race…comments in Computaform about the 2nd race winner No 11 QUERARI FERRARI will need the the experience..Erico was spot on about his runner saying it will need the experience… fair comment…it was quietly facied come race time so had a presenter just done a bit of constructive digging it would have saved many of us by just adding it into our play…the info we as punters are looking for is simple is the horse a decent animal has he/her shown you some decent work back home… and because the comments are done 5 days before the race lots can happen in 5 days…I personally feel it’s a total waist of time reading comments 5 or 6 days before a race but at the same time it’s a step in the right direction but one really needs to follow up on race day surely punters will really appreciate it big time

    What about the favorite in race 4. All is mugs banker it in the exotics. The people in the know collect all the money.
    Robin hood in reverse take from the poor give to the rich.
    The general punter is only there to make up the tote pools, he can’t win.

  3. Nico says:

    You would be much better off not listening to trainers and use betting as a guide as well as watching a horse go down to the start.

    i’ve seen more than enough to say even trainers can be made to look like mugs. Every trainer will think their horse has ability, and never will a trainer tell you their horse will definitely win, so they play the conservative game, and ironically the ones they confident on, don’t end up winning.

    That’s the nature of racing. Do you own homework, if you’re unsure, include the horse.
