    I'll be having a punt for sure.
    Not sure which horse yet though.
    The Japanese horses have been really good contenders in recent years.

    Happy Trails.
    Its a great story and a great name for a Cup Winner.
    Had a good solid hit out today in the Cox Plate over 2040m.
    Along with Criterion's runtoday as well, I call that the quinella. depending upon acceptances of course.

    There looks to be a few good contenders which will make things hard.
