Won a big race early in career but been a disappointment since. Pass.Noticed Main Stage is running in R.1 today at Flemington Oaks Day. That's the horse shared owned by Dusty and lots of Richmond men, right?
What do the experts here think? Any chance - maybe only for a place?
Not favoured by its form or the barrier, with IMPI the hot tip, but a couple of scratchings and tricky conditions with rain and blowy. Long shot?
I love a horse that will barge its way out and through. Winx would barge and buffet when she had to.After Frankie did a “Dunkley” and tried to put Vow and Declare through the fence, he certainly answered in spades with a don’t argue that would’ve done Dusty proud.
Vow and Declare is now my favourite horse, I call him Balmey.
Reckon Opie Bosson thought he was still racing against the lower level mares he raced the week before and set Melody Belle way too big a task. Should have got moving about 800m out but waited until the 400 and literally the horse had bolted. Fair effort the winner to come back from the 3200m to win though.Hows a bloke supposed to make a living in spring when an Irish horse can run 3200 on Tuesday and then win at 2000 on Saturday?
Im gonna stick to the footy until the ******* Irish, Japanese, germans, English and French start playing.
given they backed the winner from 8's into 3's in an hour or so, I reckon its more likely Oppie found himself a length too far back and all you can eat hokey pokey with baileys Irish cream sundaes after the races.Reckon Opie Bosson thought he was still racing against the lower level mares he raced the week before and set Melody Belle way too big a task.

Yeah pretty extraordinary win. Not sure I'd be retiring it.How good was Lys Gracieux in winning the big group 1 race in Japan yesterday. There were 11 horses who had won group 1 races in the field and she went past them like they were standing still, I can’t remember an easier win.
The way she won the Cox Plate and then again yesterday, I reckon she would’ve beaten the mighty Winx
