    Rc2 Menangle. I would have thought if driving $1.30 shot you pop off the fence. Be a few unhappy punters

    Note: Didn't have a bet in race

    And from the Stewards' Comments column it would appear no questions asked!

    There is a QDT now. Apart from Melb Cup day yesterday would probably be the biggest punting day of the year with big features in both Melb and Syd, Menangle Rc2 would have been hoping to piggy back some of that and it really does no favours for the cheats on seats perception.

    Here's what the stewards thought about the driver, who appeared to get blocked in:

    CONVICTION Held up for clear running in the home straight and was not fully tested. When questioned regarding the tactics adopted, in particular the decision to remain on the marker pegs and not move out into a running line position prior to the 800 metres when covered by THE BETTORMACK NZ, Driver A Turnbull explained that in her opinion her gelding is not suited when racing outside the leader and this was considered following the geldings last preparation. Ms Turnbull stated that previously when outside the leader, her gelding had fired up in its runs and although racing well in fast time at Eugowra on 7 October 2019, this was in a lower class event. Ms Turnbull added that although being positioned in a pocket from the 800 metres, she had not expected THE BETTERMACK NZ to hold on as it had done in the home straight and also had considered MOTU GATECRASHER NZ the horse which she was following, would kick in the run.

    Based on what? Last prep sitting outside Majordan in 1.50.1 first half 54.9 compared to 57.2 and start before at Bathurst where it was 3WE 3WM before getting the death. What a cop out. Completely different situation both times. Ran home in 54.2 so wouldn't have had chance or been a problem if fired up at that pace. Take it Stewards didn't even investigate further. Why didn't Stewards make those statements/ask those questions about the prior races being different circumstances and if they did why isn't it in the report?

    Ride High V Colt Thirty One Saturday night at Melton with a few half handy sidekicks involved. I think this is a new race on the calendar so good job HRV.
