• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

The Melbourne Cup on Tuesday I think has some cracking each way value to be had.
I see Skybet is paying 7 places.

I will be studying the race more closely tonight.
Are you playing, any tips?
Twilight Payment 50/1.

Got this price at Sky last night.
I could not resist it as Melbourne is going to have a soft ground Melbourne Cup.
Ground will not inconvenience my selection.
Ran just over 4 lengths behind Sir Erec last year.
Beat Latrobe in June and that horse is 16/1.
Great jockey on board.
Draw not the best.

7 Places I take my chance.
Best of luck The Uncouth The Uncouth

I dutched 5 in the race last year, but have just gone W&P ( split the place bet to 1st 3 and 4 ) on Raymond Tusk.

Mustajeer was going to be my original bet but RT has a 5lb turnaround from the Ebor and certainly has no issues with soft ground, even if the sire stats are dreadful.
The each way is always the kiss of death @Uncouth.

Having backed it on the exchange, I could have made a nice profit on RT on the win market , as he hit a low of 4.2 when jamie was sat in behind, then found zilch
