horsebuck$ roundup 3rd December 2016

Saturday we thought we had a couple of serious chances labelled in our BEST section, but it wasn’t to be. Gallant Harmony ($2.80) found the lead as we thought, in hindsight probably should have been let run along and had them chasing instead of being held up, even so he was entitled to do more with 52kgs. Supreme Effort had every chance in our opinion sat back M/F for one last crack, momentarily held up in the straight but that made little difference. Big Money was most disappointing, he had a beautiful run behind Most Important (which looked the winner a fair way out) he tried to go with the winner in the straight but the weight told in the end. Puccini (2nd) this fellow ran out of his skin, if he  had a better run early in the race instead of being posted and having to make that mid race move to lead, the race might have panned out a little differently. Having said that Pilot DÉssai won easily in the end. Longshots; Atlantic Express ran ok as he was racing ungenerously for the entire race but Delightful Son did nothing probably outclassed here or that torrid run at his previous start took it all. On a brighter note once again we snared 17 winners in our top four selections from the 26 races run with   5 on top with Pipeline our best at $15 followed by Saga Miss $4.60, Brooklyn Storm $4.80, Winning Rupert (outstanding and probably picked himself) $1.50 and Mihany $2.50 . Getting a plethora of winners in our top 4 is a regular occurrence ( Saturday 12 @ $4 – $15) and some at much bigger odds other days. There is definitely an excellent pattern developing here for horsebuck$ followers , getting your top selection to salute is exciting, but that is what  our BEST section is for  and  we usually  have some very good results in that area. Narrowing a field down to 4 serious chances ,whether it be a field of 7 or a field of 20, is an art in itself and is geared more for the exotics but as we have said previously this pattern has emerged. We are not claiming on top selections but in our top four, and if you have a strategy to utilise this you should do very well. Speaking of exotics we have been having a pretty good run of late with some very good results but Saturday wasn’t one of our finest as far as dividends go. It started off ok at Rosehill with the first four in the 1st race Vic. $134.60,N.S.W. $152 Qld. $180.40 and the exacta Rosehill race 2 Pipeline(on top selection) & Bratislava Vic. $82.70, N.S.W. $90.80 Qld. $ 85.90 after that a small trifecta MR 6 in order and only three selections (on top selection 1st) Vic. $18.70, N.S.W. $20,Qld. $19.20 and the extra double Eagle Farm both on top selections successful Saga Miss ($4.60) and Winning Rupert ($1.50) paid $ 5.80 plus 5 other quinellas and exactas. Until 9am next Saturday have a great week from HORSEBUCK$
