Perth's Injury Crisis and Tomorrows Caulfield Cup!


Paul Rogers from the Perth Wildcats has succumbed to a possible season ending injury! Rogers, 36, has had a big offseason to get his fitness back on track after a few horror seasons since returning to the NBL. In round two, an injury placed his season in turmoil. A torn tricep could be what is going to force him to miss the season. His only chance is to play the last five games of the season so that he qualifies for the final series. As much as I enjoy watching Rogers play, maybe his time is up, and it's a chance for someone else to come in! Perth has taken the opportunity to sign Tasmanian 223 cm Sam Harris. Rob Beveridge has the luxury of signing another import if Sam doesn't make an impact in the first few weeks. I think if Perth are serious about winning a championship another import is a necessity! The downside is an Australian losing a spot in our national competition.


Only a couple of weeks away from the race that stops the nation! However the races in between such as the Caulfield Cup and the Cox Plate have a large impact on the field for the Melbourne Cup. Spots are up for grabs in the big race and once your're in, anyone is a chance on the day! Tomorrows race is very open. There is no standout favourite so there is plenty of value out there! I'm going to take Daffodil and hope it's too good for them on the day! Good luck punters and I hope tomorrow is a lucky day. If anyone has a hot tip feel free to post, my ears are wide open.
Here is a link to this years Cup Draw! GOOD LUCK!

  1. How did everyone go in the Cup? Daffodil came fourth! The horse may need more distance as it finished off beautifully! Look for it in the Melbourne Cup I'll definitely be on it! Congrats to Bart Cummings and Viewed, the horse just knows how to win big races!!!
