Standard trifecta

A standard trifecta means having the first three runners across the line in that order. Let’s say you had the number 1 to win, 4 to come second and number 7 to come third in your trifecta. They would have to cross the line in that exact order to receive a payout. On the ticket, or the website, this means you will mark/tick 1st box for number one, mark/tick 2nd box for number 4, and mark/tick the 3rd box for number 7.

Box/Flexi Trifecta

The second option you have is to do a box trifecta. This means if you have the same three numbers, they can finish in any order for you to win the bet. With the numbers 1,4,7 in a box trifecta there would be six possible combinations they could come across the line:

• 1,4,7

• 1,7,4

• 7,4,1

• 7,1,4

• 4,1,7

• 4,7,1

Therefore, if you wanted to have a $1 box trifecta with these numbers, to receive 100% of the dividend you will have to pay $6 for the six different possible combinations. If you were to pay $3 for this bet, you will only receive 50 per cent of the dividend. This is also called a flexi bet trifecta. If you wanted a $1 box trifecta with four horses, it would cost $24 for 100% of the dividend. For five horses it would cost $60. The cost of the bet rises as the number of horses you have in the box trifecta rises. To place this bet, you simply mark all of the horses in the 1st box on your betting ticket, or on your website.

Standout trifecta

The last type of trifecta is the standout trifecta. This means if you have the numbers 1, 4, 7 in your bet and you believe that number 7 that is more likely to win, then you can mark number 7 in the 1st box on your betting slip, and number 1 and 4 in the 2nd box on your slip. This means number 7 must win, while the numbers 1 and 4 can finish 2nd and 3rd in any order. You can do the same thing if you believe a horse will come 2nd or 3rd.

Been watching all week for stream of him in Hong Kong for Saturdays big race.


Just saw him and he will rate 99% - 100% fit if holds that the next 3 days, which he should with

Waller as the trainer.


Great horse, big race, big horse, good luck, he is not suited by a slow or we track.

Our new e-dutch is where one or two horses are on top, I am confident that one or both will perform

in the exotics (e-dutch: exotic ditching) and work each horse in with any exotics if that is your go.


If both come in you collect twice.


Other calls are:


Value Bet

Top line

Box up (that’s a trouble race, not sure)

I think I will go and get some cobalt, take it  and let u know how I feel.



Cobalt is a hard ferromagnetic, silver-white, hard, lustrous, brittle element. It is a member of group VIII of the periodic table. Like iron, it can be magnetized. It is similar to iron and nickel in its physical properties. The element is active chemically, forming many compounds. Cobalt is stable in air and unaffected by water, but is slowly attacked by dilute acids.


Cobalt is used in many alloys (superalloys for parts in gas turbine aircrafr engines, corrosion resistant alloys, high-speed steels, cemented carbides), in magents and magnetic recording media, as catalysts for the petroleum and chemical industries, as drying agents for paints and inks. Cobalt blue is an important part of artists' palette and is used bu craft workers in porcelain, pottery, stained glass, tiles and enamel jewellery. The radioactive isotopes, cobalt-60, is used in medical treatment and also to irradiate food, in order to preserve the food and protect the consumer.

Cobalt in the enviroment

Most of the Earth's cobalt is in its core. Cobalt is of relatively low abundance in the Earth's crust and in natural waters, from which it is precipitated as the highly insoluble cobalt sulfine CoS.
Although the average level of cobalt in soils is 8 ppm, there are soils with as little as 0.1 ppm and others with as much as 70 ppm. In the marine environment cobalt is needed by blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) and other nitrogen fixing organisms. Cobalt is not found as a free metal and is generally found in the form of ores. Cobalt is usually not mined alone, and tends to be produced as a by-product of nickel and copper mining activities. The main ores of cobalt are cobaltite, erythrite, glaucodot, and skutterudite. The world's major producers of cobalt are the Democratic Republic of the Congo, mainland China, Zambia, Russia and Australia. It is also found in Finland, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan.
World production is 17.000 tonnes per year.

Health effects of cobalt

As cobalt is widely dispersed in the environment humans may be exposed to it by breathing air, drinking water and eating food that contains cobalt. Skin contact with soil or water that contains cobalt may also enhance exposure.
Cobalt is not often freely available in the environment, but when cobalt particles are not bound to soil or sediment particles the uptake by plants and animals is higher and accumulation in plants and animals may occur.

Cobalt is beneficial for humans because it is a part of vitamin B12, which is essential for human health. Cobalt is used to treat anaemia with pregnant women, because it stimulates the production of red blood cells. The total daily intake of cobalt is variable and may be as much as 1 mg, but almost all will pass through the body unadsorbed, except that in vitamine B12.

However, too high concentrations of cobalt may damage human health. When we breathe in too high concentrations of cobalt through air we experience lung effects, such as asthma and pneumonia. This mainly occurs with people that work with cobalt.

When plants grow on contaminated soils they will accumulate very small particles of cobalt, especially in the parts of the plant we eat, such as fruits and seeds. Soils near mining and melting facilities may contain very high amounts of cobalt, so that the uptake by humans through eating plants can cause health effects.
Health effects that are a result of the uptake of high concentrations of cobalt are:

- Vomiting and nausea
- Vision problems
- Heart problems
- Thyroid damage

Health effects may also be caused by radiation of radioactive cobalt isotopes. This can cause sterility, hair loss, vomiting, bleeding, diarrhoea, coma and even death. This radiation is sometimes used with cancer-patients to destroy tumors. These patients also suffer from hair loss, diarrhea and vomiting.

Cobalt dust may cause an asthma-like disease with symptoms ranging from cough, shortness of breath and dyspnea to decreased pulmonary function, nodular fibrosis, permanent disability, and death. Exposure to cobalt may cause weight loss, dermatitis, and respiratory hypersensitivity. LD 50 (oral, rat)- 6171 mg/kg. (LD50 = Lethal dose 50 = Single dose of a substance that causes the death of 50% of an animal population from exposure to the substance by any route other than inhalation. LD50 is usually expressed as milligrams or grams of material per kilogram of animal weight (mg/kg or g/kg).)

Carcinogenicity- International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) haslisted cobalt and cobalt compounds within group 2B (agents which are possibly carcinogenic to humans). ACGIH has placed cobalt and inorganic compounds in category A3 (Experimental animal carcinogen- the agent is carcinogenic in experimental animals at a relatively high dose, by route(s), histologic type(s), or by mechanism(s) that are not considered relevant to worker exposure.) Cobalt has been classified to be carcinogenic to experimental animals by the Federal Republic of Germany.

I brought a horse

I black booked this horse last prep and duly won first up very impressively at Cranbroune in the night meeting.


This horse has serious ability and steps up to city grade tomorrow.


I was going to wait till I rate it but @ $21 and $5.84 a place I think is huge overs, so have bet already.


Cheers Jim

Hi Jim,


I randomly came across your website and tried to download some App, unsuccessfully. However somehow I got your blog and it had all your fitness ratings for Sandown yesterday. I checked the results and was very impressed. I have just been on your website and have read your history and must say how impressed I am with your perseverance in getting your system to where it is today.


I would like to speak with you or one of your staff about your different subscriptions and what they involve. I am definitely interested in looking further into your system and methods. I also see on your blog an article from Rick Williams. I respect Rick's work and wonder if he is involved with you in any capacity.


Kind Regards,

Good morning Allen, welcome to 28.8 and thanks for your positive feedback, yes have been on the science

of horse fitness since 1987 and in racing since 1958.

It’s been a long haul mate to get it right.


I rate every horse in a percentage of fitness from the mounting yard and post best chances in a text

message to members ($6 per meeting)


We have been working on cutting edge, pioneering software for 28.8 to send my mounting yard 28.8 fit 2

win spreadsheets directly to an App so international members can see how fit every horse is in the next



Enter your daily code and world-wide punters can wager with the fittest horses or lay the unfit horses

which currently have a strike rate of only 1% in winning, amazing stats.


Rick is a top bloke and an excellent form student and now his form in fitness of 100% - 94% will go hand in

hand with our 28.8 fitness percentages of 100% - 94%.


See what Rick has tipped, then include 28.8 fitness and punters have the best of both worlds.


I do selected days Allen, sometimes 3-4 a week, anymore and I go brain dead.


See all our news and information on


I am here to help you Allen.
