Herald Sun Form Guide : May 16th 2009
heraldsun.com.au Flemington TODAY PROS TALKING Stephen Ash BOOKMAKER (SureBet) BERRINGAMA(Flem R8 No. 6): Consistent galloper who should sit on the pace and from there sure to be in the finish. Great each-way value. Terry O’Sullivan TRAINER POISEDTOWIN (Flem R4 No. 4): He was very disappointing in the Wagga Cup. I really don’t have an explanation for that run. His blood tests couldn’t find a thing wrong with him. He races well at Flemington and has won over the distance there. Hasn’t drawn well, though, and will have to go back. LADIES INLUCK(Flem R6 No. 4): I’m thrilled she’s drawn well again. Everything might fall into place again as it did last week. There will be good speed which will suit and I think she has a great opportunity. Symon Wilde TRAINER HISSING SID (Flem R6 No. 1): If he settles well he should run the distance right out. This is a bit of an afterthought, though, after the Warrnambool Cup, but we felt we should give him a try so we will have a better idea as to what we should aim him for in the spring. ARCHSYMBOL(Flem R7 No. 7): Abit like Hissing Sid as his main mission was the Wangoom.We want to test him at 1400m so we will have a better idea as to what direction we go with him in the spring. He came through the Wangoom in good order. HOT JOCKS On trial for spring: Warrnambool Cup winner Hissing Sid is tackling 3200m for the first time today. MIDNIGHT OIL with TIM HABEL TRACK: Dead 4 PENETROMETER: 4.70 Inside: 4.69 Outside 4.66. RAIL: True LAST MEETING: Out 11m May 9 LAST TIME TRUE: March 7 RAINFALL: 3mm for week IRRIGATION: 8mm for week RADAR: Isolated showers 1 Black Caviar, at his last start here. He’s ultra-consistent and a repeat effort would win this. WALLINGER (2) improved to win first-up in Ade- laide. DANE BABYLON (6) failed in the same race but was heavily backed and may do better on firmer ground. A watch on the three unraced, notably the Hayes runner USAIN (5). ON-PACERS: Kwassa Kwassa, Miss Papier. SWOOPERS: Wallinger, Dane Baby- lon. 2 SUGGESTED BET: Nil. ground at Sandown last time. On a firmer track here she is well placed. ARMS WIDE OPEN (2) had no luck getting a clear run when resuming in a big field in Adelaide. She’s a smart filly with a class edge on most of these. CATS WHISKER (1) was close up here last week against the boys and back to fillies grade with the claim will run well. FLYING TESSIE (6) ran a top race down the straight here on Anzac Day and missed her home town carnival last week for this. ON-PACERS: Lisas Lago, Cham- pagne Love. SWOOPERS: Cats Whisker, Arms Wide Open, Chortova, Elumino, Fly- ing Tessie, Bon Marche, Double Crossing. Dwayne Dunn is riding in good form and has a solid book of rides at Flemington today. He has been installed a $2.90 favourite in the TAB Sportsbet Jockey Challenge. THE MARKET $2.90 $3.20 $5.50 $7.50 $8.00 $13.00 $18.00 $23.00 Dwayne Dunn Steven King Nicholas Hall Logan McGill Any other indiv jockey Ibrahim Gundogdu Chris Symons Stephen Baster 3 SUGGESTED BET: Bon Marche each-way, box trifecta 1, 2, 6, 7. been waiting for the 1600m and this half-brother to top filly Marveen can turn the tables on EXTRA ZERO (1) from their Anzac Day clash here. Extra Zero got the trail behind Stone- black and outsprinted him but there is a 1.5kg swing in the weights in favour of Stoneblack. Stablemate ROYAL DALTON (2) ran on well for third in the same race and is among the chances. TAKE THE RAP (4) and RUN FOR NAARA (8) also have claims. ON-PACERS: Excuse My French, Tio Rossa. SWOOPERS: Extra Zero, Royal Dal- ton, Stoneblack, Take The Rap, Run For Naara. STONEBLACK (3) is a tough youngster lining up for his 10th start in his first season. He has BON MARCHE (7) ran on well over an unsuitable trip when resuming then struck heavy KWASSA KWASSA (1) beat all but the late bloomer of the two- year-old season, the brilliant 4 SUGGESTED BET: Stoneblack each-way. race of little obvious pace he will stroll forward and should be able to control the tempo as he did at Caulfield last time and win again. The main danger looks to be INSTRUCTOR (1) who ran on strongly from last on the turn when resuming at Caulfield over 1400m. The step to 1800m suits and he’s twice won second-up. MOLO- TOV (2) has been struggling for his best form but the step to 1700m suits. BELLA CASSANI (5) is up in grade from a mares class win but is racing well. 5 ON-PACERS: Driffield Gold. SWOOPERS: Instructor, Molotov, Poised To Win, Bella Cassani. SUGGESTED BET: Driffield Gold straight out, exacta with 1. and COMMANDING HOPE (7). Curi- ously for a sprint race only ORTAY- GA(16) is a noted leader so this is the right time for Augusta Proud to switch back to her on-pace racing style from early in her career. She failed at her only run down the straight in the Danehill Stakes last September but pulled up lame after the race so the run can be dismissed. GRAN SASSO (14) never seems to have luck in his races but is rarely far away and can place. MIDNIGHT MUSTANG (15), BOWHUNTER (6) and JEUNEYMAN (8) also have claims. ON-PACERS: Ortayga, Augusta Proud. The Goodwood Handicap form should come to the fore here through AUGUSTA PROUD (5) 6 SWOOPERS: Stanzout, Bowhunter, Commanding Hope, Jeuneyman, Gran Sasso, Midnight Mustang. SUGGESTED BET: Augusta Proud each-way. much too classy for his rivals here. He showed he’s a genuine Group-class spring contender the way he treated his rivals with disdain in the Warrnam- bool Cup. Outside him they are a very even bunch. BRAD STAR (2), GRAND DESTINY (3), LADIES IN LUCK (4), GLISTENING (6), THE BANKERS ON FORM: DRIFFIELD GOLD (Race 4 No.3) ON POTENTIAL: LAKONIAN (Race 8 No.3) ON CLASS: HISSING SID (Race 6 No.1) $50 FLEXI QUADDIE FOR 41.6% 5,7,8,14,15/1/1,4,7,8,15,17/3,4,5,6 HISSING SID (1) gives every indication he is a natural stayer and if he can run the trip will be DRIFFIELD GOLD (3) is a much improved galloper since trans- ferring to Robert Smerdon. In a DESERT MASTER (7), TANGALOO- MA(9), PHAZE ACTION (11), VINDI- CATING (15) and ELMORE (16) can all place. This should be a genuinely run race with several runners who like to lead. Grand Destiny and Ladies In Luck should get good runs from inside gates. ON-PACERS: Joontoo Gemini, Urban Force, Vindicating. SWOOPERS: Hissing Sid, Brad Star, Grand Destiny, Ladies In Luck, Glis- tening, Desert Master, Tangalooma, Phaze Action, Elmore. SUGGESTED BET: Hissing Sid straight out. 7 MOST punters will be sweating on COSTA IN THE GLEN (17) getting into the field here. He looked top class reeling in the smart True Tales at Sandown last time. This is his toughest test but he looks above average. ARCH SYMBOL (7) has won seven of nine and is now looking for the 1400m after his narrow Wangoom win. GOLD SALUTE (15) has had no luck in two runs from a spell, the latest at Caulfield two weeks ago. If he can get a clear run he’s capable of being right in the finish. COCINERO (1) was buried away on the rails and didn’t get a clear run in the same race. He won well at the trip here at his previous run. Plenty of depth here with ARENTI (2), JUNGLE RULER (4), PLAYWRIGHT (6), O’REILLY’S CLOCK (8) and MIEWA’S QUEST (10) all chances. ON-PACERS: Arenti, Jungle Ruler. SWOOPERS: Cocinero, Playwright, Arch Symbol, O’Reilly’s Clock, Miewa’s Quest, Gold Salute, Costa In The Glen. SUGGESTED BET: Costa In The Glen straight out, Arch Symbol place. 8 LAKONIAN (3) is a lightly raced Pentire gelding who was impres- sive winning a Showcase race at the Warrnambool carnival and the extra 200m here is made to order. He handles all conditions, can race han- dy and will be good value. SHOCK- ING (5) charged home late to just miss at Caulfield last time. He’ll take holding out. BERRINGAMA (6) led from a wide draw and fought on well in the same race. From barrier two here he should share the lead with TINDAL (1). RED HUSTLER (4) ran on strongly for a Sale Showcase win last time and is another promising galloper. Tindal races well at Fleming- ton but the 1600m may test him. ON-PACERS: Tindal, Berringama. SWOOPERS: Lakonian, Red Hustler, Shocking. SUGGESTED BET: Lakonian each- way. Michael Manley QUADDIE Flemington: The Quaddie looks gettable for not a big outlay as in the final leg Shocking looks a standout. The first three legs all seem to have three or four leading chances. Take these into Shocking. Leg 1: 5,7,14,15. Leg 2: 1,3,4,11,16. Leg 3: 2,7,17. Leg 4: 5. Cost $60 for 100%. Nick Quinn PARLAY DOOMBEN(R3 No.11; R4 No.6; R8 No.14): Marveen, Ortensia and Rightfully Yours. Stick with these three exciting Victorians, who all have a clear class advantage on their rivals and with parlay bets can return some very juicy dividends. HERALD SUN SUPERFORM LIFTOUT THE MAIL Tim Habel STRAIGHT OUT FLEMINGTON (R6 No.1): Hissing Sid is a class above his rivals. The reason he’ll be backable is the 3200m and 58kg.Goall-up Driffield Gold (Flem R4 No.3) into Hissing Sid. Adam Hamilton JOCKEY CHALLENGE FLEMINGTON: Dwayne Dunn has a good book of rides and I have tipped six of his rides in my selections. The only one I haven’t is Ortayga, who is also more than capable of earning points. Herald Sun, Saturday, May 16, 2009 41 + www.tab.com.au The BIG6 will operate on the following meetings.
