The Everest & Caulfield Cup
Aside from a Sydney 'delay', this weekend we'll see the newest and best hour of racing of the entire spring.
4:15pm sees the sprint slot race with fifteen million up for grabs and one hour later we see a $5 million mile-and-a-half clash with some less than recognisable horses looking for their slice of history at The Heath.
It's an exceptional hour of racing and drama for spectators and couch potatoes.
Sure, I can acknowledge the rivalry between the governing bodies but from a spectator's point of view - or a racing participants - it's a thing of beauty.
This week on HORSEPOWER - brought to you by MyRacehorse, our guy TS Ratings had a strong opinion on The Everest, likes one in the Caulfield Cup and - as usual and as only TS Ratings can - found a couple to lay early in the card at The Heath.
Here are the best bets from the gang.
