Punt to Win
Favourites lose at the Gold Coast.
Queensland and South Australia Carnival racing regularly produces upset results, often caused by big fields and the mix of horses with form from different states meeting in the same race. So a Slow, rain affected track was the last thing punters needed for the Prime Ministers Cup Carnival meeting at the Gold Coast.
Here is how punters fared backing the favourites:
R1: Persuades, $4.40 - ninth of 14.
R2: We Can't Say That, $3.00 - fourth of 13
R3: Alfonso, $3.80 - eleventh of 15
R4: Foolish, $3.80 - first of 13
R5: Cateclipse, $4.40 - fifth of 17
R6: Perlin, $2.00 - equal second of nine
R7: Roman Arch, $3.00 - second of 13
R8: King Of Spin, $4.60 - second of 13
A not unsurprising result. Just one winner. So did favourites fare any better on Goodwood Handicap Day at Morphettville?
Favourites lose at Morphettville.
R1: Prague, $2.70 - fourth of 14.

An absolutely dismal result. There were some amazing form reversals. Only one favourite even managed to place!
