A horror day on Friday with a loss of a series on Powerplay. No problem, many completed series pay for the one loss. I missed yesterday, being involved in a series of long discussions with various Members and didn’t get off the phone until well after business hours. In fact I had a couple of minutes to back my preferred runner in the Daily Feature plus John Furgals sole selection which ran 3rd at $1.90, disappointing but a profitable day for me. A bit of a fluke but it happens.
Dodgy track conditions will persist today so tread warily. Morphettville has come back to a soft 7, but Sandown a heavy 9, Randwick is back to a soft 5 with the strong westerlies sweeping moisture off the track. Doomben is a Good 4 so todays Highstrikers will be on Randwick and Doomben.
I don’t expect many selections from our Country and Provincial series today but I do expect a return to winners and it reminds us that there is no predicting when a losing run will hit and a new winning run will return. Much like the Stockmarket at the moment. My broker suggested thursday “it looks like we are in recovery mode” then yesterday was a disaster and overnight America has dropped another 3% so another blood bath on Monday and it was the majors like Amazon that went into a recovery zone . We;come to the new normal.
