TAB's wtrapup of Saturday's racing:



Holler was a massive go in the first ($1.75) holding 75 percent of the money, however, it was Spill The Beans ($6-$4.80) that spoiled the party.

The O'Shea-trained Holler was backed from $1.70 into as low as $1.55, however, got back out late to $1.75 with Spill The Beans and Kimberley Star ($7) the only horses that took any decent money to beat the favourite.

BIG BET: Holler $11,000 @ $1.60

BIG BET: Holler $9,000 @ $1.55



One of the more open betting races of the day.

Most popular runner with TAB customers was the winner, Eisenhower ($4.60-$5), in front of Liberty Island ($6-$4.60) and Duibio ($5).

BIG BET: Liberty Island $1,000 @ $6



The only two horses punters wanted here were Magic Hurricane, which opened at $15 and jumped at $4.40 and Pajaro ($6.50-$3). They ran the quinella and was a horror result for the TAB.

BIG BET: Magic Hurricane $1,500 @ $3.80, $1,000 @ $4.40

BIG BET: Pajaro $2,500 @ $3.20, $2,000 @ $3.60



It was Banksters Bonus versus Word Of Mouth according to the punters, however, it was Sir Mako, which was specked at $13, which saluted.



Jo Jo Girl was easily the best supported runner in the event while Lovethebeaches, which was of the least popular, landed the money.



Avoid Lightning was the punters pal here, commanding nearly 60 percent of all investments. Wouldnt It Be Nice had very little backing.

Zaratone ($16-$12) attracted money as did Decision Time at odds ($26-$21).

BIG BET: Avoid Lightning $3,000 @ $3.30



Private Secretary was one of the best backed runners all day at any venue and landed the cash for its backers.

It was $2.80 earlier in the week and ended up jumping at $2.40.

Idance ($8-$7) was the only horse seriously backed to trouble the Hickman-trained runner.

BIG BET: Private Secretary $15,000 $2.30

BIG BET: Private Secretary $3,000 @ $2.50



In what was a difficult way to end the card, TAB customers invested heavily on Transfers ($6) who was responsible for 25 percent of the hold.

Song And Laughter was the next best backed in the market along with Sense And Reason, while Electric Power was the horse they put the money on earlier in the week ($8-$4.20) before it went out to $6.50.





The money today suggested that Safariann would be the one to beat in the opener and that was certainly spot on.

Backed from $6 into $4.20, the Damian Oliver-ridden runner just nailed Alucinari ($4.20) right on the line. That particular horse had commanded favouritism for the majority of the week.

Dangerous Breeding was backed from $9 to $5.

BIG BET: Safariann $2,000 e/w @ $6



Act Of Valour proved to be a costly conveyance for punters who backed it from $2.70 into $1.95.

It held 50 percent of the entire investment on the race.

Its About You ($8-$6) was the best backed to beat the favourite in front of Magic Boy ($5-$7.50).

Radical only held more money than the despited outsider, Mondiale.

BIG BET: Act Of Valour $2,292 @ $2



Noela's Choice landed the cash much to the delight of one TAB customer that collected $13,000 thanks to their bet placed just prior to jump time.

Jesse Belle, as was the case last start, was the best backed runner in the race ($4) in front of Flying Aurora ($4).

BIG BET: Noela's Choice $1,000 @ $13



One of the most open races of the day with punters unable to really figure out what to back.

In the end, Johnny Roo Boy was the best backed ($8-$4.60-$4.40) ahead of Smokin Al ($9.50) and Spencer Street ($6.50).

Prince Rahy got out to as much as $21 before coming in to $18 at the finish.



Duke Of Brunswick ($6-$4-$6) was one of the better supported runners in the race despite drifting late in betting.

We've Got This saw good money come for it in the closing stages of betting and as a result firmed from $4 into $3.20.

Monteux ($9-$11) did have backing as did oncebittentwiceshy ($31) who started at decent odds. Angry Gee was $21 into $15 right at the death.

BIG BET: We've got this $2,000 @ $4



Punters were reeling after Majestic Duke took out the sixth event on the card.

Yesterday's Song was heavily backed throughout the week. After opening at $2.70 it was hammered into as low as $1.90, however, blew back out to jump at $2.85.

Taddei Tondo ($14-$10) and Bel Seal ($17-$14) were two of the better backed runners to beat the favourite, as was Arctic Song ($5-$4.60).

BIG BET: Yesterday's Song $7,000 @ $2.70



Kenjorwood was very popular with TAB customers who were keen to take any price on offer for the Peter Moody-trained runner.

Backed into even money at one stage, it would eventually start at $2.80 and hold 45 percent of all investments on the event.

Best backed to beat it, in terms of money taken, was Cadillac Mountain ($11-$10) while Pyrrolic ($2.90) and Digitalism ($7) were the only others that had any decent support.

BIG BET: $10,000 @ $2.60, $5,000 @ $2.80



Flash Of Doubt was the despised outsider in this one but landed the money at $41.

The late move for Pathways ($11-$9) narrowly came undone while Miss Promiscuity, which went out as the punters' elect, was weighed down by the 60 kilograms at $3.50.

Nautical was peppered throughout the week and was $8 opening into $5 this morning, however, it went back out the gate to $7.50.



Boomwaa and Prince Harada were the two carrying the hopes of punters in the last.

Boomwaa started favourite at $4 while Prince Harada was $4.40. Together the pair accounted for almost 50 percent of all investments on the race.

Prince Harada produced a mammoth run to narrowly miss out to Our Nkwazi ($51-$35-$51) who did have a touch of specking at the price.

Brotherly Secret was $6 into $5 while Royal Island  ($8-$6) also saw some good bets come its way.

BIG BET: Boomwaa $3,000 @ $4.20





Press Statement was $21 when TAB first released the market some time ago. This week he was $7 into $6.



Jabali captured the feature at odds of $26 with The maiden performer did have some support, touching $31 at one point.

Miss Cover Girl was the best backed runner and attracted a bet of $4,000 e/w @ $7/$2.50.

Good Project was $8 into $6 at one point but went back out to jump at $8.50.



Werther was heavily backed into $2.20 and held upwards of 55 percent of the investment on the race.

Charlie Boy was the best backed in the last 24 hours - $8 to $6

Lumosty was the most popular runner with customers and held the most money of any of the runners. It was $4.80 out to $5.50 and started favourite.

Boban and Charlie Boy were the two best backed to beat the favourite.




A bunch of Victorian TAB customers will be celebrating tonight after snaring a slice of the Doomben Quaddie that paid nearly $70,000.

Rough results filled three of the four legs with Magicool, Srikandi and Jetset Lad all scoring at double figure odds.

One customer approached the Quaddie a quite novel way by including the ‘Field’ as a leg in races five and nine. Outlaying $100, they picked up nearly $45,000 after snaring 64.1% of the dividend.
