Powerplay should have made a profit yesterday, but it took until the last few races to hit the front with $9 $5 and $9 winners in quick succession. Only 18 races run yesterday but subscibers operating on the basis of quitting when in front had to wait and wait .The favourite strategy pulled up a little short. In the meantime, we have had feedback from Members who have taken a few days off and visited destinations as far apart as the Hunter Valley Vineyards and, Thailand and Bali. Those asian destinations are hardly places of peace and quiet but cheap at least and the food diverse. At a market in the Hunter Valley the other day I met Neil and Bernadette Stevens who run a boutique winery at Pokolbin and the Old Hillside Homestead, a three bedroom house in the old style. A good place for quiet reflection on the verandah overlooking the vines, yet still close to restaurants and dozens of wineries and other attractions, the hot air balloooning is one such I have experienced myself. They supply guests with their own wines if required and have samples of all. Contact is firstname.lastname@example.org and they can accomodate up to 8 guests. Three venues today , and looking to catch up. A good day with plenty of time between most races to look closer at the form.
