Some things don’t change – the Warriors can almost snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, winter thoroughbred racing is in the lap of the rain gods, and there’s free ratings at the Palmerston North hounds every Monday.

Luckily, the external bruises from last week have disappeared.  We got everything round the wrong way – our bet of the day lost while the lay of the day managed to finish over the top of the two dogs who were supposed to have featured in the winning photo!  Still, that’s racing and we live to fight another day.

First race is at 12.42 and just one meeting with 12 races.  I’ll post my thoughts around 11 am once the bookies have feasted on their scones and updated the markets.

It’s simple and easy to access the ratings if you’re not a member.  Just click on the link below to sign up for FREE access.

Good punting
