Big Money = Best Thoroughbreds and these races are very exciting for that reason.
The big highlight is the World Cup, as Twister says "Invasor vs Discreet Cat is the biggest dirt clash for many years. They're the two top rated in the world and the only occasion one of them was beaten was by the other."
I'm backing Invasor and Twister's on the Cat so we'll have some fun rivalry on the night. My hunches on some of these races are as follows :
2.40 : Fusaichi Richard
3.55 : Kellys Landing
4.55 : Sir Percy
5.40 : Pompeii Ruler
6.30 : Invasor
Don't coming running to me though if you back 'em and they turn into donkeys, I aint professing to be a tipster and I'll probably be 0-fer-5 by 6.45pm !
Played one $10 180 on Stars last night whilst chatting with BurnleyMik, Sir Fortune and YorkshirePud not much happened really, it was late, I was tired, I made a play based entirely on a read in the end which proved completely wrong as I was trying to read an idiot. Anyway, I did have one have fun moment in the tourney, as you can see...
Don't forget tonight it's Katitude's B'dayment... HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAT !
