Its a soft 5 at Townsville today sunny and 23 degrees so a possible upgrade later. Race 7 is an Open at WFA which is rare. It’s obviously the only race I can consider today with all other tracks wet except the synthetic at Pakenham where the best grade race is a Benchmark 64. No contest.
Yesterday John Furgals SMS selection was at Gunnedah which was a soft 5 at time of posting. Before the 1st it was downgraded to a heavy 8 and at least one subscriber asked the question “is it still a bet?” Well personally I wont bet at all once a track is downgraded significantly. It simply makes sense. Nevertheless, the selection started at $1.40 but couldnt quite get there, finishing with another frustrating 2nd. Heavy track and odds on? Not for me. Of course sometimes we will be on already with no option to cancel and to that I simply comment “you will win some, lose some” because the weather is simply out of our control.
