Best of the Best Bets
Wow this is tough today. I don’t think we are going to see a whole lot of roughies like we did last week but I think there are plenty of races where it’s very hard to separate a handful of them.
I am going to make my clear best of the day Johannes Vermeer. I think this is the weakest Caulfield Cup Field I have ever seen and J V’s run last start was SO IMPRESSIVE he just looks very very hard to beat. Well drawn, good jockey, well weighted, seen the track. What’s there not to like.
Avdulla is pretty unlucky not to be riding in Melbourne but he makes up for it with some very nice rides here today. Alward has been very impressive and in the small field should just be too good for this bunch. Diddums the lightly raced Gerald Ryan mare really gets her chance to make a statement here today. She will be on her way down South in a heartbeat if she takes care of this lot. There are some very solid listed and group horses in the Nivison but I think Diddums is the one who can really explode onto the scene here today.
Best of the Rest
Jamie Kah should keep Manuel’s winning form going but you might not get much of a price. I think Temps Voluer is an interesting runner in a tough race but appears great each way value. I really like Emily Finnegan as a jockey and it looks like here best for the day. The Northerly is a very nice race in Perth and it’s hard to go past that man W Pike on Cosmic Storm first up. Good luck and good punting.
West Ham v Brighton
Let’s hope that the Hammers are blowing plenty of bubbles after this one. Brighton are far from the worst side but its always a tough trip to take on the Cockneys in London.
Suggested Bet: West Ham United to win @ $1.80 at Ladbrokes
Stoke v Bournemouth
Well, it was a pretty dark day at the Office for the Potters last weekend but thankfully for them this is a much easier assignment at home. Stoke is one of those sides that usually gets the job done against teams they should beat.
Suggested Bet: Stoke to win @ $2.10 at Ladbrokes

Racing Tips Sunday October 22:
Hastings Race 8: Nb 11 Gingernuts WIN
Mornington Race 6: Nb 1 Moonlover EW
Mornington Race 7: Nb 1 Conspicuous Maid EW
Seymour Race 7: Nb 1 Equador EW
Best of the Best Bets:
We are going to have to go across the pond for our best of the day in New Zealand. Gingernuts will be very hard to beat in the Livamol Classic and meets the lies of Volkstok’n’Barrell and Chance to Dance very well at the weights. I will have my fingers crossed that we can snap up some even money but I would still be happy to take the $1.80 that was available at Ladbrokes early in the week.

LSU Tigers @ Mississippi Rebels
This is a good old fashioned Southern Fried game between two old rivals that love going head to head. No doubt that the LSU Tigers have been the better side this year but I think that the Rebels will come out and leave their Southern hospitality at the door.
Suggested Bet: Rebels +7 at the line.
