Punters Club – Hooter & sodes

Written by Motts on October 30 2015

Hooter loves a short-priced favourite. So what’s he done to get some VALUE this week? Multi’d two of ’em!

Tarzino to win The Derby into

Fame Game to win The Cup

    $50 @ 9.90

sodes is getting stuck in early and taking advantage of Will Hill’s “money back if your horse finishes in the first half of the field” deal on the first four races. His selections are:

Race 2 – Number 2 My Popette – $25 @ 4.60

Race 3 – Number 3 Disposition – $25 @ 3.90

If they don’t win but finish in the first half of the field I’ve asked sodes to email me replacement bets. 

We’ve also had a couple of very generous donations this week from Schwarzwalder & a punter who wishes to remain anonymous so let’s call him Mr Y

Schwarzwalder has donated $100 after a solid win recently and thrown it straight at an Oaks / Darley Classic double:

Dawnie Perfect to win the Oaks into

Chatauqua to win the Darley Classic

     $100 @ 13.50

His reasoning goes: “Dawnie Perfect looks an out-and-out stayer and I expect her odds to shorten after Derby Day (running in the Wakeful Stakes). As for Chautauqua, Exosphere’s owners have already stated that they would rather avoid a clash. Chautauqua would then face the same field as he did at Moonee Valley, and he’ll destroy them again”.

Mr Y has also had some good fortune on the punt recently and wants to share that with the PC. Here’s what he likes:

Race 2 Number 10 Muzyka – $5 the win, $10 the place @ BT+
Race 4 Flexi Trifecta

  • Number 1 Exosphere to win
  • Number 4 Keen Array for 2nd 
  • Numbers 2,3,5,6,8,10,11 for 3rd 

$7.50 buys 107.14%

Race 4 Flexi Trifecta

  • Number 1 Exosphere to win
  • Numbers 2,3,5,6,8,10,11 for 2nd
  • Number 4 Keen Array for 3rd

$7.50 buys 107.14%

Race 5 Number 4 Elhaame – $5 the win, $10 the place @ BT+

Race 6 Number 2 Happy Trails  – $5 EW @ BT+ 

5 Derby / Cup Doubles

  • Kia Ora Koutou into Fame Game – $5 @ 33
  • Kia Ora Koutou into Trip to Paris – $5 @ 65
  • Kia Ora Koutou into Preferment – $5 @ 97
  • Kia Ora Koutou into Criterion – $5 @ 130
  • Kia Ora Koutou into Amralah – $5 @ 130

Race 8 Number 9 Abidewithme – $3 WIN, $7 PLACE @ BT+

Race 9 Number 5 Under the Louvre – $10 WIN @ BT+ 

We are ALL OVER this Spring Carnival!! On behalf of the PC I want to say thanks to Schwarzy and Mr Y for their tremendous generosity. Here’s hoping we win a ton of money off their bets!!
Good luck to all of us!

  1. Only tip I have is go each-way. There aren’t many nags running at Flemington today. Good horses win at good odds on Derby Day, very tricky day of punting. All I expect is for Dawnie Perfect to run a place and shorten for the Oaks on Thursday. Thanks to Mr Y for his donation and good luck to Hooter and sodes today!


  2. Mottsy’s tips & bets today:
    R1 – Bassett
    R2 – My Popette
    R3 – Disposition
    R4 – Exosphere
    R5 – Excess Knowledge
    R6 – Rising Romance (not confident tho)
    R7 – Duet Tarzino & Kia Ora Koutou

    $10 @ 32.47


    All the best, team!


  3. Well I for one will be cheering hard for Fame Game on Tuesday ๐Ÿ˜‰ Dawnie Perfect not ideal but not the worst for Oaks Day. Hopefully track dries up a little till Thursday. And nice profit from sodes…..good stuff guys!!


  4. Great day for the Punters club. Sodes had a good a win and backs up , Hooter and Deano have some great live bets going into the Cup and Oaks. Schwarzy is still alive and Mr.Y managed to add to the kitty.
    Good stuff guys!


  5. Funnily enough, the odds for the double have firmed due to Exosphere’s confirmed absence from the Darley Classic. Chautauqua is now into $1.30 favoritism, making him a Monty for the race. Anyone who watched the races saw that 7/9 winners came through the “fast lane” on the rail. In hindsight, Dawnie Perfect wasn’t such a disappointing run when coming down the middle of the track. She’s still very much a decent chance on Thursday despite drifting a touch in betting markets. And Hooter’s put us in a great position with his double, Fame Game looks the one to beat in the Cup. Come on, you good thing!


  6. Righto here’s the wrap up from yesterday. Terrific day for the PC with sodes returning $167.32, Mr Y backing Deano’s horse Muzyka for a $33 return, and Hooter getting the first leg of his multi up.

    We’ll bank $100.32 of sodes’ winnings and give him $67 to play with on Tuesday.

    Start cheering on Fame Game because if it comes in we’ll be $495 richer. I missed a phone call from Hooter this morning at 6:30 (thankfully I turn my phone to silent at night). He hadn’t gone to bed yet after powering through the evening to watch the rugby and the darts. He didn’t plan to watch the darts, he just couldn’t watch the rugby any more. He called to let me know how much of a champion punter he was.
