    Thanks Mike/Mal (pick your favourite LL brother). He went super! Dropped him off on June 7 last year so he has been in work for 9 months and still racing well (Kudos to the trainer, perfect drive too). He passed the 100k mark last night too, although this didn’t stop him kicking the cart numerous times pre and post race (which he does every week). Sidebar- Suzi was on her best behaviour last night too.

    The win will pay for my treatment re my recently self diagnosed standing start, your horse starts favourite after galloping last week, anxiety disorder!

    Last years Nullarbor didn’t really capture me but this years race is shaping up to be a fascinating event with the inclusion of Catch A Wave into the field. The questions are how is he currently going? (How good was Triple Eight!), can he run a fast 2500 metres?, will he get around a 800 metre track ? etc.

    Hopefully this years race won’t be so late and, fingers crossed, the weather will be kinder than it was last year. At the very least it will be great to see one of the best horses to travel to WA in many years.

    He is a good inclusion but over 2500 and with his inconsistency, I would be backing against him

    I know Q4 was 26 secs last Saturday but you would be wanting CAW to be winning the rematch this Saturday

    You would think CAW would have to win to justify the trip. Not the greatest lead up to a 2500 metre race either. Mind you there are very few lead up mobile FFA races over the 2500 metres apart from a couple of country cups over here at the moment.

    HAT will also be an interesting runner re The Nullarbor.

    (Anyone wanting a punt on GP please note they start racing two hours early because of the football I guess. Full day Friday - Stations of the Cross , footy and the trots!)

    The Wave will be arriving early enough to race at GP the week before the Nulla so he will be going 1720m, 2130m, 2500m but draws for him and St Louis will be everything

    True, ditto for the locals after watching the Bunbury Cup. Excellent race as opposed to our usual GP FFA’s which favour front runners/small track It will be interesting should Pinny Tiger get a start in the Nullarbor given his point to point speed.

    The Bunbury Cup raised a few questions re Never Ending’s ability to run 2500 against the best horses, even though he was beaten less than 5 metres and had a hard run. The only four year old I can remember making the transition , over here, as a four year old to genuine Group 1 racing was Village Kid when he won the Pacing Cup beating Preux Chevalier (I think) courtesy of a fantastic drive by Phil Coulson. NE might be up against it but I hope I’m wrong.

    CAW was very good last night so he is on the right track re Nullarbor.

    A half sister of Pinny Tiger is the dam of Tonkin's 2yo Storms Collide which looked impressive winning on debut at Ballarat on Thursday
