The day has arrived — it is Silver City Cup Day. If you’re reading this article, chances are, your understanding of gambling mirrors mine. Nevertheless, I’m set to offer my tips for each race, accompanied by my justifications, which, frankly, are devoid of any logical, gambling expertise, or scientific basis!
Proceed with caution as you read on and prepare for some dubious advice on the Silver City Cup.
RACE 1 TIP: 2) FLUFFY BUNNY FEET
Arguably the most fun name of all the horses racing this Saturday at Broken Hill Racecourse. Get around Fluffy Bunny Feet.
RACE 2: TIP 3) TOMMY TOMATO
Another fun name, but the reason I am backing this one is I love an underdog, and I think old Tommy Tomato is the dictionary definition of that, as racenet.com.au form guide says: Has had 24 runs without breaking maiden and unsighted last start at Balaklava. Returns to shorter trip. Hard to have.
RACE 3: TIP 2) A THOUSAND DEGREES
Perhaps the most apt name at the meet. Okay so it is going to be 40 degrees, but it’ll probably feel like 1000.
RACE 4: TIP 4) BRAZILIANT
I have no clever quip or questionable reasoning for this pick. I just saw the name and I liked it.
RACE 5 TIP: 8) MOSS THE BOSS
I love a name that rhymes. And who am I to argue with Moss’s boss status. Moss The Boss takes home the Silver City Cup.
RACE 6 TIP: 6) SUN MASTER
Whichever combination of jockey, horse and trainer take home the chocolates today, will have to master the sun. Therefore, I think this pick is the most obvious of them all.
If you have made it this far, you have probably figured out that I have never watched a horse race before in my life. Best of luck to all you punters out there.
