Herald Sun Form Guide : May 16th 2009
46 Herald Sun, Saturday, May 16, 2009 + RACING TODAY Canterbury form continued RACE 4 continued CARNEGIE HOUSE (A J Cummings) 5g By Carnegie - Platonic (14:2-2-2): In field of five managed 1-3/4 len 4th (56.5) Shadow Cabi- net 1550m C’bury Wltr dead trk April 28 then couldn’t foot it with rivals during 4-1/4 len 7th (53.0) Lyncean Academy 1600m Hawkes- bury Rowley Mile May 9. Will appreciate drop in class and step up in distance in his favour. Needs to improve somewhat but can. DELTONA (Kevin Moses) 5g By Com- mands - Raindrops (24:4-8-3): Blew out some cob webs with first-up 3-1/4 len 13th (56.0) Without Compromise 1200m R’wick Rst2 dead trk April 11 then ran on gamely for 3/4 len 2nd (54.5) Shadow Cabinet 1550m C’bury Wltr dead trk April 28. Should be hit- ting straps third-up and moves up to a com- petitive distance.Warrants consideration. MR GILLY (Ms K Waugh) 5g By Keeper - Honey Be Ours (28:5-4-4): Since resuming from spell was 7-3/4 len 11th (56.0) Shadow Cabinet 1600m W Farm (81) heavy trk April 15 then 3-3/4 len 8th (51.0) Joku 1800m R’hill Wltr dead trk May 2 when came from last. Has got some Km’s in his legs now so capable of improvement and comes back in grade for this affair. Place chance. BOPALULA (Paul Murray) 5m By Brahms - Boba (39:4-5-7): Never in the hunt when 8-1/2 len 9th (56.0) Enzedex Eagle 2400m R’hill N.E.Manion Cup Mar 28. Struggled to be competitive during 6-1/2 len 7th (53.0) Macknuckle 2000m Wagga Cup May 1. Easiest race he’s contested for a while but doesn’t win out of turn. Prepared to risk. ROMANY STAR (R L Pearse) 3c By Quest For Fame - Gypsy Mai (8:2-1-1): Worked home well for 1-1/2 len 4th (54.0) Fravashi 1400m R’wick South Pacific slow trk April 18 then sent out favourite when managed game 1-3/4 len 2nd (56.5) Rednrich 1600m Hawkes- bury (81) dead trk April 29. Unproven over the trip but racing like he will appreciate it. Won two in town last preparation so this certainly not beyond him and Schofield sticks. Big threat. AFRICAN PRINCE (C J Waller) 3g By Jo- hannesburg - Donna Amata (16:2-4-3): Went down fighting in 1/2 len 2nd (56.5) Shadow Cabinet 1600m W Farm (81) heavy trk April 15 then gave a sight before reeled in 3-3/4 len 5th (57.0) Rednrich 1600m Hawkesbury (81) dead trk April 29. Racing well and saves his best for these trips. Could be a force to be reckoned with if can negate barrier ten without using up too much juice. DANDEE TOPWIN (G A Rogerson) 4m By Danewin - Depot (26:3-3-4): Motored home to record 2 len win (55.0) Sunday Lady, Rac- ing Romance 1800m Randwick-Kensington F&M Rst1 dead trk April 13 then battled 3-1/4 len 5th (56.5) Jessicabeel 1800m R’hill F&M Hcp-81 dead trk May 2.

Didn’t fire a shot during 8-3/4 len 12th (58.5) Jessicabeel 1800m R’hill F&M Hcp-81 dead trk May 2. Usually honest mare who disappointed most last start. Drawn to improve and is benefited by 2kg claim here. Could be worth another chance. HANGOVER HENRY (E B Murray) 3g By Half Hennessy - See The Stars (15:1-3- 5): Had his supporters when game 1-1/4 len 2nd (53.5) Rose Of Mooncoin 1600m Albury (77) Mar 27. Since finished 1-1/4 len 4th (58.0) Relentless Lad 1600m Wagga 3yo (72) May 1. Always in the thick of things but seems to be lacking killer blow to win a race. Prefer others. MANGALA (J B Cummings) 3c By Montjeu - Spring Bubble (8:0-1-2): Gallant in defeat when first-up sht 1/2 hd 2nd (54.5) Admirals Honour 1400m Randwick-Kensing- ton 3yo C&G Rst1 heavy trk April 13 then hit line strongly for nose, len 3rd (57.5) Read- ily, Mysterious Light 1550m C’bury 3yo Mdn dead trk May 6. Still a maiden but is moving up to a suitable trip and must respect stables decision to place him here. Roughie.

Rewarded for some consistent efforts with sht nk win (57.5) Love And Kisses, Intuit 1300m R’hill 3yo Hcp dead trk May 2. In winning form and was very competitive in G3 company two starts back. Drawn well and Pride team certainly firing this Autumn. WHITEFRIARS (Rick Worthington) 3c By Arena - Alsatia (9:1-2-0): Dictated in-front and looked some hope turning for home before nabbed 1/2 len 4th (53.0) Centen- nial Park 1200m R’hill Darby Munro Mar 28. Didn’t get off to a great start and struggled thereafter 4-3/4 len 11th (56.0) Chakvetadze 1200m Gold Coast G.C. Guineas May 2. Easiest event he’s contested for a while and didn’t get any favours against G3 company at G.Coast. Take some catching if he isn’t used up too much from a wide gate. BACK ON TOP (M Caltabiano) 3g By Shagny - Halloween Mist (11:3-5-1): Gave a bold sight before gunned down lg hd 2nd (54.0) Starring To Win 1200m C’bury Rst1 dead trk April 8. Chased home a smart one when 2 len 2nd (55.0) Aichi 1200m Gos- ford Guineas heavy trk April 23. Very hon- est gelding who has hoof on till after three consecutive seconds. Gets some weight relief with N.Berry aboard so will be hard to leave out. MARGHAM (Peter Snowden) 3f By En- costa De Lago - Desert End (7:3-1-1):Won on protest to notch lg hd win (55.0) Barabuc- ci, Mine In Time 1200m R’hill 3yo (75) slow trk Dec 13 before put away. Resumed in fine style making it two in a row with lg nk win (56.0) Mine In Time, Guderian 1100m R’hill 3yo (85) dead trk May 2. Encosta filly of some promise. Drawn awkwardly but only needs to run up to form to be right in this. ANGEL’S BREATH (R J Quinton) 3f By Tale Of The Cat - Butterfly Kisses (8:3- 1-1): Coming off a hat-trick of wins in town when 3/4 len, 2 len 3rd (57.5) Gold Water, Villa Moura 1400m R’wick 3yo (80) Jan 3 be- fore put away. Didn’t get the clearest of runs but still a tad disappointing when 5 len 11th (53.0) Mary’s Grace 1300m Hawkesbury F&M Hcp dead trk April 29. Won three from four last preparation so pay to forgive out of character performance first-up. Big improve- ment expected.

Blocked for run before getting clear over last 200m when 2-1/4 len 4th (57.0) Margham 1100m R’hill 3yo (85) dead trk May 2. Unlucky not to finish closer last start. Look to him for the value option. CENTURON (G A Ryan) 3c By Belong To Me - Sungail (2:1-0-0): Opened account in style with 1/2 len win (57.5) Merconman, Mullfit 1200m Gosford 2yo C&G Mdn dead trk July 9.
