40% winners 67% placed for the HR2D Hcap plan yesterday. This “after” the race and some prerace conditions may have changed such as track conditions or late scratching but 90+% accurate maybe 100%. More importantly 7 of the first 11 selections were winners. HR2D specials found a $14 the win winner BUT was it 2nd fav? We dont usually bet outside those paramaters BUT it was equal 2nd fav early with two other runners whne backed from $21 into $12 before a late ease. The signs were there in the market. Could you have resisted backing it? I had the grandkids yesterday, 5 running around so all I got was sunburnt. Oh, I l also had zero winners from Hotshots, seconds only. I await a trial today for our Gold Club 2yo and also I loom forward to a move upwards in the Stockmarket following on the post Christmas boost on Wall Street. Maybe also I am looking for somewhere to escape to for New Year. In the meantime Rick Worthington produced a nice 2yo in trial 6 at Warwick Farm today. Nice trial for the filly Steel Diamond. Assiego was a nice 2nd. Today we have a likely nice Quinella /Trifecta in Townsville as our Daily Feature and our top two rated runners are around $6 and $7 although the $7 one firmed from $16 yesterday and $15 this morning. I just hoping I got on at the right price. Missed the $15 but got $8, it is now into $6. Just hope it wASNT A FALSE LEAD.
