2008 JRA Cup, Cefalu

The Valleys claim more of my money.
Ceffalu? Are you joking?? Glad the races weren't on channel 9 so I didn't have to listen to O'Donnell's crap. Devil Moon is becoming a non-winner. I thought that Casual Pass was the best bet in this field and 150 out from home he looked like the Valley Turn ate him up as it has eaten many a horse.

The only interesting run here for your spring is fast future. Came from wide last and made one hell of a run to finish 5th.

Maybe Better has drifted in the market since this race. A race he was hit quite hard in. Things to think about: 1) Mayfield Smith wasn't setting Maybe Better for the JRA cup. How many times do you have to hear Mayfield Smith say "I only want to win one race" before you believe him? 2) If you took the $8 on offer on Maybe Better, that's noones fault but your own. 3) After Maybe Better is not even shaken up, he makes a little run - not the eye catcher from last time but he wasn't asked to make a run this time. 4) He drifts to $31 for the Melbourne Cup based on this. Oh Glorious day!

Moral of this race: Don't give up on Casual Pass, don't give up on Maybe Better, Don't un-give up on Ceffalu, keep that run of Fast Future in your back pocket.
