Malmoos, MOD, McGregor – Molly Muses

A short note from the veteran

Dave Mollett – 2014 Equus Champion journalist having a chirp in the SP Mailbag

It’s a ‘given’ that punters like to follow tips. But on Saturday you had to feel for the poor punters who followed the R48 place accumulator perm by the TAB Daily Tipping Sheet which was shown time and again on Tellytrack before the first leg, writes Dave Mollett in the Sporting Post Mailbag.

Somehow, whoever does these tips, believed Mike De Kock’s hot favourite, Malmoos, wouldn’t make the first three.

He or she selected Miss Elegance (giving the favourite six kg – no chance) and Tanzanite Queen.

Those tipsters previously employed by Tellytrack must have shaken their heads in disbelief.

On the soccer front, it would have been interesting to get the expert view of Shane McGregor on the Everton versus Liverpool derby. He has taken his dismissal case to the CCMA – the outcome will be important to many contractors.

MOD has been as quiet as a church mouse since their victory. Time for them to show some muscle – particularly in Rivonia.

    Justin Snaith gave punters yet another pick 6 banker at a price too. The De Kok stable have another Hawaam in Malmoos . The grooms were singing in the morning. Well observed by Lyle. Yet no punting comments on Forever Mine Or Malmoos. Punters certainly wont miss this stable. Justin once again my family enjoyed early Chrismas gifts with your generosity. You are a cut above the rest as you care about the survival of this beautiful game.

  5. Cecil Pienaar says:

    I have always wondered if these Tipsters, horses and soccer, play their tips and perms. Me, I am waiting for James G and friends to find us a long shot soccer bet ??

    David ‘ Send you back to work ‘ Mollett has a selective bent. I clearly recall him tipping a UK Jackpot last year where the one leg had five runners, of which he selected four. Yes, no prizes, the omitted horse won. So his sarcastic and puerile attempt at ridicule is a case of take it from whence it comes. With regard to Shane the Unoriginal never in his soccer tips did he select a home and away win. It was either home win + draw or away win + draw. Quote ‘ Perm will cost you only R496. Unquote. If it was a R72 perm Andrews would state Quote ‘ Take it multiple times. ‘ Unquote. This coupled with their banal chatter was sufficient to entice me hiring an Uber to hit Tops on a Monday through Thursday. Fortunately I had cash as I never attempted to ‘ fill my Wally with Molly. ‘

  14. Selwyn Elk says:

    Tipping horses is a thankless job, you are on a hiding to nothing but unfortunately with the majority of the presenters on teletrack if you put horns on a horse they would try and milk them, they have absolutely no idea, it is about time that RACING people are employed that have some idea of the game, I for one agree with Molly 100 percent.

  15. freeracer01 says:

    To Shanil Singh… edited * Mike de Kock’s runner comments are posted on race day on his website, have been forever. Clear confidence expressed in both the winners on Saturday.

  16. freeracer01 says:

    The only peope showing muscle are the terrible people who remain in charge at Phumelela and Tellytrack. Sympathies to MOD, however, some of them must be hard to fire!

  17. Donald Bradshaw says:


    Best tipsters , STABLE LADS , STIPES & YOURSELF !

  18. GGoliath says:

    @Shanil. Well said Justin was Bullish about Do it again in the 2019 July and all his runners this year.
    Moral of the story is don’t give comments like might need the run or may be green and then the horse wins by 10lenthgs @ big odds.

  19. Shanil Singh says:

    Or the trainer said will run well and the owner at the post race interview says trainer told him to come to the course and get on. So what if it
    It loses afer being labelled as a good thing. Punters are not privy on the training tracks to witness unraced horses beating graded horses and the stable making a killing when it wins first time. Yet we are the life blood of the game.
