A Guy asks a Girl in a busy University Library, “Do you mind if I sit beside you ?”  The girl replied with a loud voice: “NO, I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND THE NIGHT WITH YOU !” All the students in the library started staring at the guy, he was so embarrassed and humiliated. After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the same guy slouched in the corner and said:  “I study psychology and I always know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt embarrassed, right?” The guy then responded with a loud voice: “$800 FOR ONE NIGHT, YOU ARE KIDDING YOURSELF !” All the people in the library looked at the girl in shock and dismay. The guy whispered in her ear: “I study law, I know how to make people feel Guilty”.

VH2H – Head to Head Betting

VICBET H2H Betting is available every race in two groups of three. It is the three Favourites (1st, 2nd and 3rd) combined in one H2H outcome and the second H2H is the 4th, 5th and 6th Favourites combined, excluding the Fav if it is Odds-on (under $2). This is a moving dynamic market so as the odds change for the actual race the odds will change for the H2H outcome. Also, you can pick your own H2H outcome, then simply text or WhatsApp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) and he will price up for you, this can be in a group of two or three. If you are new to VICBET send Tim a text and he will give you a free H2H wager up to $50……This is a novelty bet type so it is for the small players……


The Group One Australian Guineas worth $1m is the highlight of the weekend’s upcoming races at Flemington. The two stars at the moment will fight it out again, namely Catalyst ($2.70) and Alligator Blood ($3.10). There is also Group One, Two and Three Races at Randwick, more Group Racing at Flemington, the Group One NZ Derby from Ellerslie (NZ) and Group One Racing from Sha Tin on Sunday……


As you all know we have our Pre-post odds up for each race each day, we will be adding the Pre-post fluctuations later in the week so keep an eye out for that…….


Up on the VICBET website there are 25+ Feature Races to choose from. There is lots of interest in the upcoming Australian Guineas on Saturday at Headquarters. This week the VSpecial is in the Newmarket the following Saturday and also at Flemington. You can have $8 any one of the Favs with a limit is $500 or part thereof per Client till Noon on Saturday the 29th Feb. Simply place your wager at the current Fixed Odds on whichever selection you would like and we will increase the odds to $8. As an example say like Loving Gaby, have your $500 or $25 or the amount that suits at the current $6 and we will then amend to $8. You can send us a reminder by email at


Same as last week but over two States this time. Have a Fixed Odds bet on all three Group One’s  this upcoming Saturday, these include the Australian Guineas, the Chipping Norton Stakes and the Surround Stakes and we will then give you a free bet on any race on the day up to or equal to the smallest of the three wagers. Let’s say you have $95, $165 & $135 as your three wagers then you get a FREE $95 wager on any race on the day. Simply text or Whatsapp Tim Cleary (0433-339347) or email and the Free Bonus Bet will be added. Max is $200 and one bonus per Client…..


The Australian Guineas commenced in 1986 so I thought the Chipping Norton having a much richer history was better to talk about it. The Group One Chipping Norton was first run in 1925 and is named after the suburb Chipping Norton located in Liverpool about 30 kms south-west of Sydney. Some of the stars of the Turf to have won this time-honoured race include Phar Lap (1930), Bernborough (1946), Tulloch (1960 & 1962), Emancipation (1984), Super Impose (1991-92), Octagonal (1997) Tie the Knot (1999-2002) and Winx (2016-19). Tie the Knot and Winx have won it four times in consecutive years. The race has always been run at either Randwick or Warwick Farm and is considered the key stepping stone towards the Doncaster Handicap or the Sydney Cup. The winner is exempt from ballot for entry into both races. If interested in watching the 2019 Chipping Norton Stakes from last year CLICK HERE…
