    Yes, I know that Brendan and what I am saying is that - at a glance it appears as though the First Four paid $24,555. I know it sort of did BUT it didn't - you know what I mean LOL

    I reckon R1 at Bendigo was a classic example of the pros money not going on until the last 10 secs
    The fav 2yo first starter Sir Jimmy had until then been backed in to around $1.35 but as the mobile got moving he was slow to score up, it was obvious that he was not going to get up into his position. He blew out to $1.80 while the 2nd and 3rd favourites shortened

    Of course one cannot be 100% certain that he wasn't going to ease anyway
    But I wouldn't mind betting it was more the pros seeing the opportunity to jump on the other two

    Sometimes you are backing a driver more so than the horse
    Take R7 at Maryborough today
    3yo Final Collect is the best horse in the race and Odds On fav
    But he has drawn inside the back row and has young Leilani Justice on him (for the claim to get into the race)
    But but but he has one of the other chances No Win No Worries driven by James Herbertson drawn right next to him
    James was never going to let him/her off the fence

    Watch it on the TAB or wait until tomorrow as Internet Black Hole Maryborough does not have replays go up until tomorrow
    (I reckon the gallops would have had this internet problem fixed years ago if it was their track)

    Sometimes I think that the Stewart Stable's super shorties get beaten often enough that, someone smarter than me, could capitalize when it happens

    This one would have set you up for a lot of misses ($81)
    Tonight we are talking 2yo maidens, one gets written off after one start while the other starts $1.45

    .... at $1.20

    Just about any trotter is going to strike trouble 1 in 10 so the return is ludicrous
