The three football codes are approaching the starting line, but one of them is shying at the stalls and needs to be vetted (did anyone say Rugger? You are correct!)
League has taken an early lead courtesy of PVL who knows how to run a race, and the AFL is settling in behind for a June 11 launch. The A-League settles last while SuperRugby is doing its best Chautauqua impersonation and doesn’t even look like leaving the gate.
We can’t wait for them all to return to the mounting yard. Even Izzy Folau would be welcome. Not really.

p.s. In the meantime, why don’t we all buy a piece of an Everest runner. Really. Our friends at miRunners have come up with a unique way to get involved in the Everest get your mates together n register your interest ahead of Mondays sale. Don’t say we didn’t tell you about it.
BEST BETS – HORSES
Back to Flemington this week for our feature card, and in the main race, the ragtag bunch here at the PC offices will be on No.6 Haunted. His old man Lonhro was more than handy here (and in general) and back to the 1200m gets out blood flowing. Back him at the $6 on offer.
Our best bet of the day is R8, No.2 So Si Bon. Once like most of us and a shirker, he has become somewhat of a go-getter. We can only imagine what that feels like….. Flogged them a fortnight back at Caulfield, and though we all know enough weight will stop a train, we think he will bite into this and get the full mouthful at the post whilst paying $4.50….so very punny……
