    Okey Cokey.  Who are we on?

    After his terrific run in the Caulfield Cup and with the distance not an issue, I reckon the best value is Who Shot Thebarman.  Currently $17 and Fame Game is at $4-they both had very similar runs in the Caulfield Cup so I'm taking the longer odds Very Happy .  Barrier Draw this arvo.

    If the track plays anything like derby day whichever jockey gets to the rail will be on the winner.

    Heard the track dude this morning on the radio (he has an official title). He explained the way the water runs off the track and why it plays the way it does. He said to expect a firmer track tomorrow

    He's also moving the rail out 2m which should help.Hopefully it does or Fame Game will be no chance.

    Has he failed on heavy tracks? I thought he was just unproven in the wet.

    It won't be heavy anyway but it's the fact he gets back and will be wide on the straight. It was like quicksand out there Saturday. Have a look at his run in the Tenno Sho he absolutely deserves to be favourite.

    Awesome run, similar to the Caulfield Cup where he got into trouble and had to duck out.

    If Purton followed Trip to Paris through, he would have won the Caulfield Cup

    Melbourne Cup day seems very similar to the Jarryd Hayne journey.

    People don't actually know what the hell they are talking about. But will repeat what they read or heard and pass it off as their thoughts.

    And then when it's over no one will care again.

    I follow racing religiously mate. I'm a hopeless punter but I still follow it all year round.

    I think the issue is that you are the only poster on any forum in the history of forever that knows anything about any sport; which is why you carry you so much respect.
