Most punters will go through some extensive research and in-depth analysis of each runner when it comes to picking their racing multis.
Some, on the other hand, opt for a slightly easier approach.
For those of you who like picking a winner based on its name, we've got the perfect breakdown for you.
Here, we've scanned over and dissected each horse's nickname running in this weekend's Golden Eagle. Enjoy!

1. Private Eye
Sounds a bit like an old James Bond movie from the 70s. Shaken or stirred?
2. I'm Thunderstruck
One for all the AC/DC fans out there.

If a courageous main character in a blockbuster fantasy drama television series is your kinda thing...
4. Apache Chase
Immediately made us think of Brad Pitt as Aldo The Apache in Quentin Tarantino's movie Inglorious Basterds.
Not the computer, no?
Me at the start of race day: aiming for the stars.
Me at the end of race 1: chasing my losses.
7. Amish Boy
No surprises what this reminds us of - get your dungarees on, that barn won't go up on its own.
Booooom! Here comes the BOOOOM! You know, that one song that appears on every high school rugby highlights video?
Sounds like a beautiful Scandinavian town with green grass, incredible mountain views and a waterfall. Come on Qantas, get me there right now.

10. Love Tap
The gentle tap on someone's body as a show of praise or affection. Looking forward to a couple of these from my mates this Saturday when I get up on the punt.
11. Count De Rupee
Sounds like something a robber would say to their fellow thief after they'd just done a bank job somewhere in India.
12. Laws Of Indices
My year 10 maths teacher once said, "if you want to do well in the HSC, don't do Maths as one of your subjects". Even after Googling "indices", I haven't got the slightest idea what it is. I understand what my high school teacher meant now...
Of or constituting a maximum; as great or as large as possible. I.e. "the maximal speed"... after all that, let's hope he's actually quick.
14. Reve De Vol
Being an Irish horse, I tried to say this name out loud in a Conor McGregor-style accent. Let's just say I got a few funny looks from everyone on the bus.
15. Forbidden Love
Old-school Madonna song. Absolute banger.
Reminded us that we haven't watched Chariots Of Fire for a while. Classic.
17. Media Award
Something I can only hope and dream of.
Not gonna lie, I'll be so glad to see the back end of hay fever season... ba dum tss, I'm here all week folks!
