    Country Cups for 2024

    Yes ALREADY!
    Echuca tonight
    The track is only 805m with a very short straight of 164m so on pace will be keenly sort
    $20k for the trotters & $30k for the pacers
    Malcolms Rhythm set the Tk Rec winning the Cup 3yrs ago but there are not any of his class in this edition

    A nice enough field for the Bendigo Cup on Saturday night

    Our Vincent Can Gogh is 'going' to attempt to win 2 cups in 6 days
    He is only 1 week into his 4yo season but the Douglas stable do not believe in spelling their horses
    OVCG has only been racing for 53 weeks and Saturday will be his 32nd start
    When you consider he missed a month in NZ and a month when coming over he has had 27 starts in 40 weeks

    Fides returns in the last at Bendigo, it is his first start since 03Dec2022 and it will be only his third start since 07Apr2020 - it would be so good to see him return like he did last time

    I am not saying that you could bet against her but how could you have taken odds on about Queen Elida ($1.35!) tonight after Lilley had told everybody how flat she was after the Albion Park 'HEAT'. She needs a spell after racing for 4 months this campaign

    There were no dud drivers in the pacing cup but Nathan Jack really is a superb driver

    Peaces Of You, Final Peace.
    Thanks for telling us about Fides in the last, was a nice price at the jump too. I was having a bad night until then.
    Don't die wondering !

    Invitation Only wins the Cobram Cup after a MASSIVE drift in betting out to $23
    I didn't know him but remember being surprised to see him favourite in early markets
    He is a full bro to Anothermasterpiece
    Another surprise is that he started with Grimson, then Thorn before Isabel Walsh and even Grimson could not work his magic on him

    Looking at his form (recent was 6mths old but looked ordinary) it just may be that he is a distance horse

    Matthew Craven now has 2 runners as emergency Silent Major gets a start. It doesn't say much for the field when a horse that has not won for 33 months can get a start. Mind you he is still NR 84 (compared to the field low of NR68) - maybe because he has only had 25 starts in that time. He has only had 2 starts since an 11 month break but if MC can get him to win a race like this, it would be a greater feat than his Fides effort
