Ah Tuesday, you come around each and every week and you manage to let us down successfully each and every week. We only have two race meets to get us through the day, but Tuesday has screwed us yet again and we’re left with just eight races at Stony Creek. The Punt Drunk team dare anyone to point to Stony Creek on a map without Google!
That’s how you start a new year!
WELL DONE TO THIS TAB PUNTER

Each and every day Dave Stanley from the TAB reminds us of the jockey challenges for each race code, and hands up if you just ignore it and go on with trying to find the winners at all eight races at Penola on a Sunday? Well one punter clearly did his homework because he has somehow pulled off a five-leg jockey challenge multi. The final leg of the multi to come through required Matthew Cahill to steer home the winner of the last at Gilgandra and didn’t he do it in style? Cahill managed to land the 20/1 shot Sticks’n’Stones in first place when it mattered most, and this tin ass managed to rake in over $38,000 because of it. Another case of jealousy strikes again.
Welcome to the trials
Nothing to see here, just Michael Costa throwing his three-year-old gelding Brave Nick in the deep end as he steps out in an open trial on the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning. Costa will get a decent idea as to how good Brave Nick may be, because two of his rivals are none other than Isotope and Away Game who both are at the top of the market for the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas next Saturday. The Tony Gollan filly Isotope and the Maher & Eustace trained Away Game will use this trial as their final hitout before they compete for one of the biggest races on the calendar on the 16th of January.
Take the $26 on offer

Arguably one of the best racing stories of the 2020 Spring Carnival was the rise of Persan out of the Maher & Eustace stable. Having finished just two and a lengths off Twilight Payment in the Melbourne Cup after failing to get the job done in a Wangaratta maiden back in April the rise of Persan was one that had to be seen to be believed. The 2020 Bart Cummings victor is now back in training for the Maher & Eustace team with an eye on the Andrew Ramsden to make sure he qualifies for the 2021 Melbourne Cup. We aren’t usually ones to have a flutter on future markets but the $26 on offer for Persan is hard to ignore, make sure to check out our favourite betting companies to see what sort of odds you can get on him!
