Herald Sun Form Guide : May 13th 2009
38 Herald Sun, Wednesday, May 13, 2009 + Stawell Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7. TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 Life Members Pace 12.20 1780m. $5000. C2 Only PBD Mobile 1 68869 BUNTY KIWI 2 65278 EVALIEN 3 65744 ROSENLEA 4 546s6 TOSCA BELLE 5 7434s VERDANT 6 3907s IM BELLAS FELLA NZ Rod Barker Fr 34.00 Neil McCallum Fr 7.00 Derrick Krafft Fr 8.00 Fr 15.00 Matthew Craven Fr 3.00 Kerryn Manning Fr ?1.70 Craig’s call: IM BELLAS FELLA (6) has ability but can be risky at the start. He makes his debut for trainer Kerryn Manning and is a winning chance if he gets away cleanly. VERDANT (5) is resuming since January but was racing in fine form last preparation. He is a strong type and should be competitive in this small field of six runners. ROSENLEA (3) worked hard in the early stages of the event, ended up in the one out and one back trail and held her ground at her latest fourth at Echuca. Her past two efforts have been good and she is a definite place chance. EVALIEN (2) seems to race best under the standing start conditions where she was placed behind Lady Octavia at Kilmore. She is nicely drawn however and is capable of showing up in this small field. TOSCA BELLE (4) has ability but wanted to hang and disappointed when she was resuming at Horsham on Friday. SELECTIONS: IM BELLAS FELLA (6), Verdant (5), Rosenlea (3), Evalien (2) RATINGS: 5,6/ 3/ 2/ 4 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 5,6/ 3,5,6/ 2,3,5,6 (Cost $20, which gives 250%) 2 Trackside Tab Trot 12.55 2590m. $5000.

He faces a tough handicap of 40m but will find this opposition to be much easier. JOULE COUNT (4) ran to the line reasonably well for fourth in a strong Super Series heat at Geelong last time. She is a professional placegetter having won just once (12 placed efforts) from 34 starts but this looks to be a suitable assignment. MODEL TALK (6) is a good beginner from the standing start and worked home well to score at her first run since November. She should be even better for that effort and is an each way chance again. RAISE AN EYEBROW (5) is better than his form reads and is a possible improver in this line up. AMEDON (9) hit the line strongly for third at Cranbourne last outing and could run into a place again. SELECTIONS: OLLIE NOVA (10), Joule Count (4), Model Talk (6), Raise An Eyebrow (5) RATINGS: 10/ 4,6/ 5,9/ 7,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 4,6,10/ 4,5,6,9,10/ 4,5,6,7,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 3 Trackside Bar Pace 1.32 2175m. $5000.

He is drawn to lead again in this much easier field and will take catching. STOPNTHINK (4) is a tough type, which struck trouble last time and boxed on gamely when he raced on the outside of the leader at Terang three starts back. He is likely to end up racing on the outside of LOMBO PHENOMENA (2) here but is a Quinella chance from that position. PERFECT MOMENT (8) ran her best race for some time when she trailed the leader and eventual winner Venice Beach at Terang last week. She is likely to end up being three back on the markers here and is a place chance via the sprint lane. WATERTECH (1) has had a lot of chances lately but is drawn to receive every hope and is worth thought in multiple combinations SELECTIONS: LOMBO PHENOMENA (2), Stopnthink (4), Perfect Moment (8), Watertech (1) RATINGS: 2/ 4,8/ 1 SUGGESTED BET: LOMBO PHENOMENA (2) to win 4 Mockas Garden Serv 2.10 2175m. $5000.

SHARDONS ROCKET (3) may not be able to head off the swift beginner WILL IT MATTER (1) at the start but finished a close second when taking on a strong field at Terang last outing and is capable of going one better here. WILL IT MATTER (1) is stepping up in grade from his latest victory at Nyah but has looked impressive since coming from New Zealand and is worth consideration. WATCHMEFELLA (5) worked hard to lead early but was afforded a very easy run thereafter when he scored at Maryborough last time. He has a consistent record and is worth thought again. PETES ELECT (2) is a strong type, which sat on the outside of the leader throughout and beat SHARDONS ROCKET (3) four starts back. He disappointed at Globe Derby two starts back but didn’t have much luck at Terang last time and is worth an investment. TIMESONYOURSIDE (6) is a handy Tasmanian pacer, which gets into this race with a concession claim but he will need luck from his wide draw. SELECTIONS: SHARDONS ROCKET (3), Will It Matter (1), Watchmefella (5), Petes Elect (2) RATINGS: 1,3/ 5/ 2/ 6 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,3/ 1,2,3,5/ 1,2,3,5,6 (Cost $20, which gives 111%) Craig Rail’s specials: BEST BET: BEST VALUE: BEST ROUGHIE: Mach Five HARNESS RACING TODAY Bendigo Lombo Phenomena (Race 3, No. 2) Thress A Crowd (Race 8, No. 5) (Race 6, No. 10) Rail’s $50 Flexi Quaddie for 83.33% 1,2,3,5/ 2,3,6/ 3,8,9,10,11/ 3 Second Line 8 24874 MARCHMONT DRIVE 9 42854 MACTERRA BOY 6 655s2 BREENYS TROUBLE NZ 7 4666s ALS GIFT 3 953s4 KOKODA COURAGE 4 37464 GEORGIAMAC 5 53773 GAME VEE JAY 2 13451 V O TWO NZ 5 Hygain Pace 1 15487 TOP PENNYMAKER 2.45 Q2 2175m. $5000. C3 to C4 PBD Mobile Adam Crettenden (C,cl) Fr 13.00 Fr ?3.00 Craig’s call: V O TWO (2) appreciated the leaders running along at a hectic speed when he finished off strongly to win at Terang last week. He is better drawn for this assignment and is a winning chance again. KOKODA COURAGE (3) will be fitter for his first up fourth behind the handy pacer Lighting Two Up at Warragul. He possesses early pace and should be prominent throughout. BREENYS TROUBLE (6) backed up a handy Geelong trial second behind Rulette with another runner up performance behind the in-form pacer Cruzhedoz at Mildura. He has returned from a break in good form and is a winning chance here. MACTERRA BOY (9) showed terrific early pace to lead, took a trail and boxed on fairly well for fourth behind Becada Star last time. He is a minor place hope along with MARCHMONT DRIVE (8). SELECTIONS: V O TWO (2), Kokoda Courage (3), Breenys Trouble (6), Macterra Boy (9) RATINGS: 2/ 3,6/ 8,9/ 1,4 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,3,6/ 2,3,6,9/ 1,2,3,4,6,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 44.44%) Amy Tubbs Fr 9.00 6 Norton Ford 3yo 3.20 1780m. $5000. 3A0 Only 3yo RBD Mobile Second Line 8 98354 SHAKA SPIRIT 9 7 77348 COOLUM KID Craig’s call: ALLWEVNEED (11) might not be suited to the Stawell circuit but was held up for a run at a vital stage and dashed through late for an eye-catching second at Ballarat last outing. With the right luck in running, he will go close to winning. CAPTAIN COURAGE (3) looked to be a good thing beaten when second at Globe Derby two starts back as he raced out six wide from the 500m and was beaten narrowly then had his chance via the sprint lane at Terang. He is nicely drawn and is worth an investment. SHAKA SPIRIT (8) broke in the early stages losing 15m and worked to the line reasonably well at Moonee Valley last outing. He is awkwardly drawn but is capable of filling a place. CARD PLAYER (9) (Aces N Sevens – Diamond Arrow) is a first starter for trainer Craig Turnbull, which has been trialling consistently at Kilmore and must be kept safe. MACH FIVE (10) has been unplaced in his two runs since a break but is a possible improver in the event. SELECTIONS: ALLWEVENEED (11), Captain Courage (3), Shaka Spirit (8), Card Player (9) RATINGS: 11/ 3,8,9? / 10 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 3,8,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 10 64s77 MACH FIVE NZ 11 s3032 ALLWEVNEED CARD PLAYER Anthony Crossland Fr 5.50 Michael Bellman Fr 4.00 7 Laidlaw Memorial 3.58 2175m. $5000.

She led and breezed to an easy victory prior and is likely to find the lead again here. OLIVELEVEN (2) is a good chance of heading off the moderate beginner LUCKYWOMANS (1) at the start and looms as the main danger to HIGHLAND ZALI (3). LUCKYWOMANS (1) is very one paced and will have to hold a position at the start to figure prominently at the finish. INSANE JANE (8) is awkwardly drawn behind LUCKYWOMANS (1) but finished solidly when second at Kilmore three starts back and is a place hope again. NARDOO SAM (10) has struck form in recent times and could run into a place with the right luck in running.

She is rising in class a little from that performance but is capable of taking the next step forward. KEAYANG PRINCESS (6) pushed forward in the early stages and raced on the outside of the leader throughout when fifth at Ballarat last outing. She was placed at her eight starts prior and rates as an each way chance. KISS AND FLY (8) trailed the leader and took some time to hit top gear via the sprint lane when third last outing. She should have benefited from that experience and is not without a chance. BARNIES LITTLE GLEE (3) was placed three times in succession prior to an eleventh behind Azumah Mazasha in fast time at Bendigo. He is nicely drawn and is worth another chance against this line up.

He has the fast beginner FOR GRANTED (1) drawn on his inside here but is still a winning chance. CLIONA LUCKY (10) has been hitting the line strongly in the claiming class and came from last to win at Echuca three starts back. He is poorly drawn but will take holding out with the right luck in running. FOR GRANTED (1) races best when he is able to lead and led throughout to win at Echuca three starts back. He was run down by Farouk last time but should take catching from the pole position. BULLANTIC (3) has performed well after enduring a tough run at his past two attempts and is not without a chance.

She is a promising filly and is capable of overcoming the second row draw. LOMBO QUICK STEP (2) was heavily supported on her debut and ran along at a genuine tempo before being run down by Revivalist at Moonee Valley. She disappointed last time but is drawn to lead again and is worth another chance. ROTKARA STELLA (1) met the undefeated colts Fiery Exit and Belles And Whistles so wasn’t disgraced in a Bacchus Marsh trial on Saturday. She is drawn to trail the leader and will receive every chance via the sprint lane. NOVA ARAMA (11) gained a nice trail throughout but finished solidly to win the Aussco Final at Bendigo last outing. She is poorly drawn but possesses a nice turn of speed and is worth thought on an each way basis. SELECTIONS: SHANGHAI (10), Lombo Quick Step (2), Rotkara Stella (1), Nova Arama (11) RATINGS: 10/ 1,2/ 11/ 4? 5?

She came from last when a game second at Wagga on Friday and was an impressive winner at Kilmore on March 17. IMPRESSIVE KHAN (8) has ordinary form on paper but used inside runs throughout and finished third behind Em Maguane and Living On Fire in fast time at the Bacchus Marsh trials on Saturday. A repeat performance will see him running a big race at odds here. Another horse with average form that impressed at the trials recently (2nd to It And A Bit) is the fast beginner LORD RUFUS (6), which is making his debut for trainer Paul Campbell and is a possible improver. ROAR TALENT (3) disappointed at Kilmore last outing but his last victory was over Leica Jet (1.58.9, 57.3, 28.1) at Shepparton in September. If he reproduced his best form, he would prove hard to beat.

He is a tough type and strikes a winnable race here. ANITEATTHEOPERA (12) led and just held off the challenge of Feel No Pain at Nyah then finished reasonably well last outing. She is poorly drawn but is one of the leading chances. SHOWBOAT CASEY (11) tried to make ground from the tail of the field but the final half was run in a fast 57.5 seconds so her distant fourth wasn’t a bad effort last time. She regularly fills a place against this class so is worth thought in multiple combinations. PLAYBOY CULLEN (6) had every possible chance when fifth behind the smart pacer Sterlish last outing but will find this race to be an easier assignment and he was placed (40m) behind the handy filly Highland Zali prior. 10 73563 ILLAWONG KATRINA 11 93634 SHOWBOAT CASEY 12 s7512 ANITEATTHEOPERA Russell Thomson Fr 6.00 Kristen Patching (C) Fr 15.00 Matthew Gath Fr 5.00 Chris Svanosio Fr 8.00 Leigh Sutton Fr 7.00 John Caldow Fr April Dean (C) Fr 26.00 Robert Armstrong Fr 26.00 David Aiken Fr 5.50 Graeme Dalton Fr 21.00 Daryl Douglas Fr ?3.70 Rodney Petroff Fr 21.00 Q1 David Moran (C) Fr 16.00 Kenny Adams (C) Fr 16.00 Brian Gath Fr 4.50 Robert Armstrong Fr 26.00 Neil McCallum Fr 26.00 Maree Campbell Fr 13.00 Chris Alford Fr 6.00 9 5744 SANITY SAVER 21 SHANGHI 7 037s6 LED SUITCASE 45 LILLA NINNA JASPER (Em1) David Murphy Fr 7.00 Gavin Lang Fr ?3.50 Daryl Douglas Fr 11.00 Graeme Whittle Fr 13.00 Brian Gath Fr 17.00 Chris Alford Fr Brian Gath Fr 6.00 Scratched Fr — heraldsun.com.au Craig Rail’s specials: BEST BET: BEST VALUE: Yentls Star Question This (Race 6, No. 2) (Race 4, No. 4) BEST ROUGHIE: Impressive Khan (Race 3, No. 8) Rail’s $50 Flexi Quaddie for 27.77% 4,6,8,11,12/ 3,5,9/ 2,3,5,12/ 3,5,9 SELECTIONS: YENTLS STAR (4), Aniteattheopera (12), Showboat Casey (11), Playboy Cullen (6) RATINGS: 4/ 6,11,12/ 8/ field SUGGESTED BET: Quinella 4,6,11,12 (Cost $6) Second Line 8 s3033 YOUR BEAUTIFUL 9 s1831 GYPSY FRANCO NZ 5 3s151 LADY LUNCHALOT 6 59266 EXCEPTIONAL ART 7 08855 LEZZA WILD CHILD NZ 2 44278 OUR SORENSTAM NZ 3 82157 MASCARPONE 4 21262 ARMBRO IRIS 5 Vsb&Sa Pace 1 38957 IMPLANTS 8.30 Q2 2150m. $5500.

MASCARPONE (3) copped plenty of pressure when leading at her latest seventh in a strong race at Cranbourne. She should lead comfortably here and will take catching. LADY LUNCHALOT (5) disappointed in the latter stages when unplaced in a heat of the Super Series but appreciated a drop in class when she led throughout at Echuca last time. She has a good strike rate but is not likely to be able to find the lead here. ARMBRO IRIS (4) is racing in career best form and finished solidly when second to V O Two last outing.

He has been placed in six of his past seven starts and will prove hard to beat again. MAORI SUNSHINE (5) came out very wide from last and finished brilliantly to get up and score in the last stride at Bendigo last outing. She had little luck in her efforts prior and will take holding out with a safe getaway. CILLAS EARL (12) is resuming since November but was placed behind the metropolitan trotters on several occasions at Harold Park last preparation and won a recent Kilmore trial in handy time. SHARENDOO LASS (3) uncharacteristically missed away in the Emerging Stars at Moonee Valley on Friday night and her form prior was strong so she is worth another chance.

JACCKA CLIVE (5) pushed forward to lead and kicked back strongly when headed at his latest second (nose) to Em Maguane at Moonee Valley. He is a very tough pacer and will run his usual honest race. WAIONA (3) has been freshened since his latest fourth to Totally Oro at Moonee Valley. He has a good strike rate and will be fitter for a recent Geelong trial second so is worth following. BOORHAMAN (9) was shuffled back on the markers from the inside of the second line and finished solidly for sixth (6m) behind Village Pungee in a strong race at Terang last outing. He possesses a good turn of speed and is one of the leading chances. CASUAL FELLA (1) and STRIKING THUNDER (2) should both be competitive from their good draw on the front line. SELECTIONS: JACCKA CLIVE (5), Waiona (3), Boorhaman (9), Casual Fella (1) RATINGS: 5/ 3,9/ 1,2/ 4,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 3,5,9/ 1,2,3,5,9/ 1,2,3,4,5,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) Luke Steenhuis Fr 3.50 8 Warehouse Sales 10.00 2150m. $5000. 3A0 or better 3yo RBD Stand 5 78877 KAMWOOD RAIDER 6 75783 HEEZABIT RUSTY 7 54538 TWO LAAGS 6s PINAROO JILL Craig’s call: KHAN BAT KHAN BOWL (2) is a fast beginner from the standing start and led when third behind Close Shave Lombo (won again since) last outing. He is drawn to lead again and is not without a chance. TWO LAAGS (7) has a good turn of speed and was placed under the standing start conditions two starts back. He was beaten a long way at Stawell last time but is worth thought against this line up. JORDAN ASHLEIGH (8) is a good standing start beginner and scored at Terang two starts back. She finished sixth ($3-70fav) at Yarra Valley last time but is capable of a better performance against this line up. HEEZABIT RUSTY (6) finished well when third at Echuca last week and came from last when he scored at Shepparton recently so is a winning hope if he steps away safely.
