Herald Sun Form Guide : May 15th 2009
48 Herald Sun, Friday, May 15, 2009 + Charlton Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7. TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 Escape Travel Pace 12.34 2100m. $5000. 2A0 to 2A1 2yo PBD Mobile 1 2 3 4 0 JILLIBY DALLAS MAGICAL BAZZ 675 ELEGANT OUTLOOK 574 TEEN DREAMS 5 98567 RIVERINA CHELSEA 6 66 EGYPTIAN ART 7 4594 ZAIRE BELLE Second Line 8 565s9 SPIRAL JET Glen Craven (C) Fr ?4.50 Mark Hayes Fr 5.00 Michael Bellman Fr 6.00 Brendan Mahncke Fr 6.00 Daryl Douglas Fr 6.00 Chris Svanosio Fr 16.00 Greg Sugars Fr 5.00 Annetto Mifsud Fr 11.00 Craig’s call: MAGICAL BAZZ (2) (Chill Factor – Love Spell) is a debutante for trainer Barry Quigley, which has won two recent Maryborough trials, the latest by 40m (last ¼ 29.1 seconds) so he looks hard to beat first up. SPIRAL JET (8) was resuming since January when he was shuffled back on the markers from the inside of the second line draw at Maryborough. With a placed effort behind the smart colt Modern Warrior to his credit, he looks well placed against this class. TEEN DREAMS (4) ran a sharper race when she settled on the markers and made up ground until getting held up in the final 50m at her latest Terang fourth. She should continue to improve with the benefit of racing and looks to have an each way chance in this line up. ZAIRE BELLE (7) picked up some ground in the latter stages when fourth at Maryborough last outing. She has been unplaced in all of her four starts but is improving with every appearance. SELECTIONS: MAGICAL BAZZ (2), Spiral Jet (8), Teen Dreams (4), Zaire Belle (7) RATINGS: 2? / 4,8/ 7/ 3 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,3,4,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 2 Lance Justice Pace 1.11 1609m. $5000.

He used inside runs but ran a good race behind Kid Coconut in much harder grade prior and he is worth another chance. KRISTEN LEGACY (4) was aggressively driven in the early stages of the event at Echuca and battled into a distant fourth. She can utilize her early speed to her advantage here and is worth thought on an each way basis. HILARION GIFT (1) is resuming since November but is perfectly drawn and will be fitter for her third in a recent Bendigo trial effort. DUST UP (9) is resuming since an eighth at Ballarat in March but finished second in a recent Maryborough trial effort and strikes a winnable race first up.

She would’ve finished closer with a little more luck in running and should prove hard to beat from the pole position. COVERED IN INK (7) had every chance but took on a strong field at his latest fifth at Moonee Valley. He was placed behind Renaissance Man three starts back and will take beating in this easier line up. LARGE ASLIFE LOMBO (3) possesses early pace and has shown improvement in recent times. He is a maiden from nine starts but is getting closer to a win. POWERSHIFT (5) (Art Major – Wemen Bess) is a debutante for trainer David Lewis, which has won two recent trials and must be kept safe.

He is better drawn, possesses early speed and should be fitter so he must be respected. PRINCE CALAF (1) worked hard in the early stages, gained a trail behind the leader and boxed on fairly well for third at Echuca last time. He should receive every chance from the pole position and rates as an each way chance. UP TOWN BOY (8) worked hard and ran a top race for third in fast time at his first run since December. His form tapered after he endured a tough run when resuming last preparation but he is worth thought on his latest performance. SPARKLING GYPSY (6) couldn’t work into the race in fast time at Maryborough last week but was placed behind The Way Holme prior and is worth thought.

SUNROSE MARY (5) finished off in fast final sections to win at Kilmore last outing. She is making her debut in standing start events but will take beating if she gets away safely. SACRE COEUR (8) is a standing start specialist, which endured a tough run at Moonee Valley last time. His form prior to that unplaced effort was strong and he is worth following. CUMULATIVE DREAMS (9) got away nicely from the standing start when he led and boxed on fairly well for fourth at Ballarat last time. He drops back to a handicap of 10m now but has each way claims.

He finished down the track in a recent Terang trial effort but is very versatile and will take beating if he is somewhere near his peak. PARASITE (1) gets into this race with a concession claim and had little luck after a poor getaway from the standing start last time. This is a drop in class and he should prove hard to beat. JILLIBY PETE (8) worked hard in the final circuit and did a good job when fifth in a strong Super Series heat at Horsham last time. He is awkwardly drawn on the second row but is racing well enough to figure in the finish. MELBOURNIAN (7) possesses a good turn of speed and hasn’t had much luck in recent times. He gets into this race with a concession claim and rates as an each way chance.

He is widely drawn but should be running home well at the finish. PIECES OF A DREAM (10) raced without cover throughout when second at Nyah two starts back then galloped away and made up many lengths last time. He has ability and is a winning chance with the right luck in running. LORNABELLE (11) is a lightly raced filly, which did plenty of work at her latest eighth. She was a winner at Stawell in March and should be competitive in this line up.

COST ME A QUID (12) broke at the start and was always at the tail of the field last outing but was placed at his previous two efforts and is worth another chance. BUNTYS KNIGHT (13) is a risky beginner from the standing start but recorded fast time in a Bendigo victory last outing and is a winning hope if he can step away cleanly. CATCHYA MUSCLE (1) had every chance when she led and set up a slow tempo at Echuca last time but has led in two of her past three starts and is a place chance again from the pole position.

She is a good chance of finding the lead here and will find this race to be much easier. ANNIE CULLEN (2) has been freshened since her latest sixth ($1-70fav) at Harold Park in April. She won in similar grade two starts back and is worth an investment from her good draw on the front line. SHES MAKEN WAVES (4) was restrained from a wide draw and couldn’t work into the race at Penrith last time. She set up a slow tempo when she won at Harold Park prior and is worth another chance from her better draw. PROMISES KEPT (5) was headed off at the start and trailed the leader when a battling fourth last time. Her form against this class has been very consistent and she is worth a place ticket. SELECTIONS: MISS LAURA JANE (3), Annie Cullen (2), Shes Maken Waves (4), Promises Kept (5) SUGGESTED BET: MISS LAURA JANE (3) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta with 3 to win from 2,4,5,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 100%) M A Formosa Fr 21.00 A S Turnbull Fr 8.00 A J Turnbull (C) Fr 8.00 2 Austbrokers Pace 7.00 2160m. $14000.

In a tricky race, he looks to be a good each way bet. PACE AND VISION (2) was driven aggressively to lead last week and only battled in the run to the finish. His efforts when coming from off the pace prior were very good and he is worth another chance. The Victorian pacer OHBEOPERATIVE (3) beat easier opposition at Mildura two starts back but he was very authoritative and he didn’t have much luck at Moonee Valley last week. He is perfectly drawn and should give a forward showing. BOMBORA LOMBO (11) has won at his past two attempts but he enjoyed the perfect run in front on each occasion and will find it a difficult task from the outside of the second line this evening.

He disappointed last preparation but strikes a winnable race first up. SWEET AS REIGN (9) is a consistent mare, which worked hard from a wide draw and battled on fairly well for fourth behind the top filly Ima Spicey Lombo last outing. She has a trailing draw here and rates as an each way chance. IM THEODORE (2) parked on the outside of the leader and outstayed Xavier in a strong Newcastle victory then made up some ground from a long way back last week. He will be suited by his good draw on the front line and is not without a chance. FRANCO TORRO (5) is stepping up to metropolitan class from his past two efforts at Bankstown but possesses early pace and is capable of running a forward race, particularly if he can find the lead.

She receives the pole position due to a concession claim and is a good chance of leading throughout. LENNY BROMAC (5) was placed behind the in-form pacer Our Malabar at Moonee Valley two starts back and should be competitive against this line up. SPIRIT OF A SHARK (8) has been disappointing since coming from America but wasn’t suited to the standing start conditions of the Renshaw Cup last time and is drawn to receive every chance behind DANCE OF LIFE (1). MERRYWOOD PRINCE (7) continues to run good races and went to his familiar “death seat” position when a handy third last week. He is very honest and is worth a place ticket again.

A winner of 13 races from just 19 starts, he looks to be an exciting prospect. FIFTY GORILLAS (2) is stepping up in class but scored decisively after enduring a tough run last week and is drawn to run a good race again. ASCANA (7) possesses a powerful finishing burst and came from last when a close third behind Flamin Yomax two weeks ago. He is poorly drawn but could run into a place. TORPEDO BAY (6) did enjoy a good run behind the leader but ran home well in the latter stages for second to Ballbarboy at Harold Park last week. He is racing in fine form and is a place chance again.

He is drawn to lead again and should go close. PINKSTWOTTER (4) is a strong mare, which raced without cover in the early stages before taking a trail behind KUMBYA (9) at her latest third. She is likely to push forward at the start and rates as an each way chance. RAYLEIGHS CROWN (6) is a brilliant beginner, which led out then took a trail behind SOLAR ACTIVE (3) last week. He is drawn out a little wider tonight but is a good chance of adopting a similar tactic here. TWENTYTWOTEN (5) should be fitter for his battling New South Wales debut fourth.

This race is a little tougher but she is capable of taking the next step forward. OUR FIRST FANTASY (7) is undefeated from three attempts at Menangle and charged home to win comfortably last time. He is likely to go back from his wide draw but possesses a good turn of speed and should be suited in the small field of eight runners. GLENBAWN FREE (6) has won three of his past five starts and was able to grind out a victory at Penrith last time. The son of Holmes Hanover continues to improve with the benefit of racing and should run a big race again. ACENKASE (2) has been placed at her past five starts and should run a forward race again.

She sprinted quickly to defeat Heezgotattitude (won since) last time and is capable of adding to her good record here. CULLENS LEGACY (9) is returning from a fourth at Menangle in January. He raced against the top echelon of 4yo pacers in New Zealand (Auckland Reactor, All Tiger, Fiery Falcon etc) so he might be a big improver this term. SLICK BROMAC (10) overcame a tough run to claim victory over Cruzhedoz at the feature race meeting at Young on Saturday. He is meeting a strong field here but has the impressive strike rate of 10 wins from just 21 starts. ARMBRO TAURUS (2) finished fourth in the Carousel Final last outing so he must be respected and ACE KRIDEN (8) is also capable of showing up in a strong race to end the program.
