Herald Sun Form Guide : July 16th 2009
46 Herald Sun, Thursday, July 16, 2009 + Cranbourne Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7. TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 Trios Tabaret Pace 1.35 1609m. $5000. C1 Only RBD Mobile 1 5109s PACIFIC PLAYGIRL NZ 2 21448 FASHION TOWN 3 81646 TIS A CHARMER 4 91624 YMBRO COCO 5 61s21 BEE AND JAY 6 00826 LORDOFTHEFLY Michael Stanley Fr ?1.50 Brian King Fr 7.00 Lance Justice Fr 11.00 Matt Cormick (C) Fr 13.00 Chris Alford Fr 4.20 Rob O’Connell Fr 9.00 Hutchy says: Ex-Kiwi PACIFIC PLAYGIRL (1), a winner at Invercargill three starts back, comes to in-form trainer Dean Braun and draws perfectly for a sprint race at her first Australian try. Whatever beats her will win. BEE AND JAY (5) was a winner at Geelong back in February before going for a spell. Since resuming he’s run a close second at Yarra Valley to smart youngster Holdmehat, then came out of the one-one to record an impressive Kilmore victory at his latest start. He looks the clear second pick. FASHION TOWN (2) is a late blooming six year old who’s only started seven times for a Shepparton victory in May. He hasn’t started for a month but trialled okay at Shepparton last week. LORDOFTHEFLY (6) was narrowly beaten by Ima Gift at Bendigo before having no luck in a Moonee Valley day affair last time and looks best of the others. SELECTIONS: PACIFIC PLAYGIRL (1), Bee And Jay (5), Fashion Town (2), Lordofthefly (6). RATINGS: 1 / 5 / 2 / 6 / 3, 4. SUGGESTED BET: Trifecta 1-5-field and 1-field-5. 2 Sport 927 2YO Pace 2.10 2080m. $5000. 2yo 2A0 To 2A1 PBD Mobile 1 67s68 GLACIAL 2 3 763 RHONDA RUDE 29s OLE MASTER LOMBO 4 69742 WILEY JASPER 5 88675 BRIOSO JACK 6 3241s STILL SMILIN 7 82217 OHOKA DETROIT NZ Second Line 8 65100 MANNY TIAVON 9 13 COURAGEOUS SPIRIT Matthew Ablett Fr 34.00 Scott Dyer Fr 7.00 Ahmed Taiba Fr ?1.80 Paul Weidenbach Fr 16.00 Alison Chisholm Fr 16.00 David Kennedy Fr 5.00 Lance Justice Fr 10.00 Paul Grech Fr 21.00 Shane McGuinness Fr 8.00 Hutchy says: OLE MASTER LOMBO (3) ran second to Renaissance Man in an APG heat on debut at Ballarat in April, then finished down the track in his second round heat at Albion Park. He hasn’t been seen since but was a 30 metre trial winner (last mile 2:01.7, half at 58.4) at Kilmore trials last week, and is drawn for first up success. STILL SMILIN (6) ran fourth in his heat of the Bathurst Gold Crown, then sat in the breeze to win a Consolation. A Riverina trained colt, he resumes into a winnable race from a break of four months. RHONDA RUDE (2) didn’t set the world on fire at her first two starts but caught the eye with a flashing finish from three back the pegs for third at Warragul last week. She’s an obvious improver. COURAGEOUS SPIRIT (9) beat OHOKA DETROIT (7) on debut here three weeks ago, then led when cut down late into third place by that fellow at their most recent meeting. He’s led in both runs so far and may be an even better horse with a sit – he’ll get one here from this good trailing draw. SELECTIONS: OLE MASTER LOMBO (3), Still Smilin (6), Rhonda Rude (2), Courageous Spirit (9). RATINGS: 3? / 6? / 2, 9 / 7 / 4, 5 / 8.

His form last year as a three year was excellent and he resumes off handy trial efforts from the good alley, and if he gets a start, he should win. BOOZY ROUGE (3) has finished just behind the placegetters in all four runs this time in and is dropping in grade from his fourth at Warragul last week. KEEPER OF THE FIRE (2) has shown improvement of late, with a Geelong third and a solid fifth there last week when wide in the last lap from his second line draw. If the emergency comes out, he’ll come from the pole this time. SMALLBOYINTHECROWD (11) has been placed in three of his last four and 8 of 20 this season. He draws awkwardly but is close to a breakthrough. Each way chances to FOGNHAZE (9) and SHOGUN LOMBO (10). SELECTIONS: In the absence of ULTIMATE HEIR (1), Boozy Rouge (3), Keeper Of The Fire (2), Smallboyinthecrowd (11), Shogun Lombo (10). RATINGS: 1 / 2, 3 / 11 / 9, 10.

WESTERN CONNECTION (2) is a handy mare who won her third race for the season in all the way fashion here a fortnight ago and is sure to be prominent again. The query runner is HEEZA TOP DOG (4), who’s won 4 of 19 over the past two seasons but hasn’t started since a Yarra Valley failure last December. He’s a talented Craig Demmler trained four year old who’s been trialling okay. ARMBRO IRIS (8) is a consistent mare who closed nicely when third to TELLTHEBANKER (6) here two starts back, then beat moderate opposition at Geelong last week. She has each way claims. SELECTIONS: TELLTHEBANKER (6), Western Connection (2), Heeza Top Dog (4), Armbro Iris (8). RATINGS: 6 / 2 / 4? / 8 / 1, 5, 7. SUGGESTED BET: TELLTHEBANKER (6) to win.

CULLENS ACE (2) ran second to Amongst Royalty in the APG Final as a two year old and is the winner of eight races, but she hasn’t started since finishing fourth at Geelong just on a year ago. She’s a handy mare when right and recently ran third in a strong Geelong fast class trial. WAINGARO GRANDVIEW (9) covered ground when a tough Moonee Valley Friday night winner in moderate four year old company a month ago, then was wide in the last lap when a solid and close third to Chrisp here last time. He trails the early speed and should be sitting just off the pace. LORD RODDICK (5) had no luck when resuming here a fortnight ago, then led but weakened when favourite at Shepparton last week. Give him another chance. SELECTIONS: INTUITIONAL (3), Cullens Ace (2), Waingaro Grandview (9), Lord Roddick (5). RATINGS: 3 / 2? 9 / 5? / 4 / 6, 7 / 8.

He draws awkwardly, but in the small field, won’t settle too far off them. CHRISP (4) is in career best form with four wins from her latest five starts. After scoring at Geelong, here and Maryborough, she had no luck in a strong Moonee Valley affair, then trailed wide in the final circuit to out-finish handy opposition here a fortnight ago. POCKET LEGEND (8) is a consistent locally trained gelding who led when third here two starts back before weakening after a death seat trip at Warragul last week. He races best with cover and will get it here from the trailing draw. Each way chance to ULTIMATE DEAL (5). SELECTIONS: LOMBO ALLIANCE (7), Chrisp (4), Pocket Legend (8), Ultimate Deal (5). RATINGS: 7 / 4, 8 / 2, 3, 5. SUGGESTED BET: LOMBO ALLIANCE (7) to win.

DEADSETLUCKY (5) didn’t miss a place in eight starts as a juvenile last season, winning five of them, the most recent of those victories in the $100,000 Seymour Nursery Final at Albion Park in May last year when beating the outstanding Captain Joy, who’s won 15 of 16 since. He runs into another smart youngster in GHADASBEST (1), who’s also resuming. This fellow won four of eight last season and finished off with thirds in a Breeders Crown Semi Final at Bendigo and a third in the final to Captain Joy at his latest run. He recently won a Kilmore trial and draws perfectly for his return. HOLLYWOOD BROMAC (4) is a Lance Justice trained ex-Kiwi who ran second at Auckland in May - his latest start. Rate him highly. Unraced ex-Kiwi CULLYS EXTREME (3) (Christian Cullen – Rachel Romance) is an Alan Donohoe trained gelding who was narrowly beaten in an Addington trial in 2:00.4 for this trip, and recently won a Bendigo trial. He looks a likely type. SELECTIONS: DEADSETLUCKY (5), Ghadasbest (1), Cullys Extreme (3), Hollywood Bromac (4). RATINGS: 1? 5? / 3? 4? / 9.

A three time winner this season, she looks well graded in CO mares company. SMART AND MIGHTY (11) was an improver when working hard to the breeze and fighting on well for second in a fast 58.2 last half at Warragul last week, and looks well suited. The other winning chances belong to LETSGOLUCY (1), who won twice last season and resumes off a recent easy Geelong trial victory; ORPHAMOYNE (2); and IT HAPPENS A LOT (10), who made good ground when fourth at Maryborough in a stronger race than this last week.

He then went to Tabcorp Park for a luckless unplaced Semi final effort in that series and, although drawn awkwardly, looks the clear top pick. PEACES OF YOU (5) ran second to Rocknrolla at Mildura, then battled on nicely when sixth in her Semi-final of that series at Tabcorp Park. She’s an improver who looks nicely graded. MANDS GEARL (10) worked to the lead for an impressive Shepparton victory before coming from well back for fourth there last week. She’s on her home track and looks to have an excellent winning chance. In an open race give a chance to COSTLY BONUS (7), who battled on well for second to MANDS GEARL (10) at Shepparton last time.

HEALPEAK (1) came from the rear to win at Shepparton last month, then lost his driver in a race at Cobram before leading from this alley when second at Shepparton a fortnight ago. Forget his unplaced effort there last week from the breeze where the opposition was a lot stronger. SNAZZY INTEREST (5) is an honest mare who’s never far away and is dropping to a winnable level. She has each way claims along with RUN SCOTTY RUN (2), SALJET (3), MOLLY RYAN (6) and GOLDIES SON (9). The first starter is THERED GLASSCUTTER (8) (Badlands Hanover – Star Challenge), a Gary Pekin trained 4YO gelding whose only sibling is a winner – this fellow ran third in a recent Shepparton trial.

He began quickly and was placed from the stand at Maryborough and Charlton at his first two runs this time in, then settled at the rear from an awkward draw and was never a factor from the mobile at Shepparton last week. THRUTHEBIGSTICKS (5), who’s never raced from the stand, won his second race for the season when working hard in the final circuit and putting up a tough performance at Charlton a fortnight ago. He won a standing start Shepparton trial last week. Each way chances to SEAN THORNTON (1) who’s been placed in one of two tries from the stand, FLASH OF FREEDOM (7), a dual winner from the stand; and DAY IN LIEU (8), who won a trial here last weekend.

He drops in grade here and looks the one. COBARGO MAGIC (4) is his main danger. She worked hard in the final stages to win nicely in fast time from the stand at Maryborough, before disappointing from her standing start back mark at Bendigo a fortnight ago. A return to the mobile will suit her. LEICA JET (5) won in similar class to this at Shepparton last month and hasn’t had much go her way in three strong races there since. She rates highly at this level. Best of the others are last start Wagga winner FLEURIEU (3), and DANNY CRANE (7), who was a heavily supported favourite in claiming company at Maryborough last week but couldn’t get around them in the last lap.

He worked hard in the lead and was cut down late by Mohican Prince, who’d had the drop on him, in fast time at Kilmore last week. STRIKING THUNDER (3) drew the second line in that Kilmore affair and was doing his best work at the finish for fifth. He previously ran second to Vintage Jag at Bendigo in a race where SPIDER NELSON (7) was wide in the last lap and wound up fifth.

A $1.40 favourite, he only struggled when second to Sierra Tango at Ballarat five weeks ago but should freshen nicely into this winnable race. PIECES OF A DREAM (4) was placed at Nyah and Cobram, then fourth against better than these at Shepparton before being set a task when taking on the early leader and weakening at Charlton last time. He’s trained here, draws nicely and meets beatable opposition. MAD MACCA (6) was one of our better youngsters last season, winning three times, but hasn’t really set the world on fire this time in. He was resuming from a break when mid-field after a rough trip at Geelong last week, and will improve big-time here into this much easier race. YOUR LUCKY DAY (10) completes a quartet of strong winning chances. He had good form at this level in March/April and was a luckless fifth when resuming at Shepparton last week. The first starter is GEMS GALORE (1) (Exotic Earl – Ornamental Jewel), a David Van Ryn trained filly whose two siblings are top squaregaiters Jewel Of The Night, $72K and the outstanding False Gem, $152K. Surprisingly, this filly is a pacer, and she hasn’t really set the world on fire at the trials. SELECTIONS: LA MORAY (9), Pieces Of A Dream (4), Mad Macca (6), Your Lucky Day (10).

She came from well back and trailed wide in the final circuit when second at Geelong three starts back, then won her third race for the season in all the way fashion at Maryborough before a solid second to Cullens Consort at Bendigo last Saturday night. MARIA CALLAS (7) is an ex-Kiwi who’s won twice at Nyah from as many Australian starts. She was an odds- on favourite when leading all the way at her latest run ten weeks ago, and resumes off a couple of unplaced trials here. SAINT NEWS (8) won three of eight last season but hasn’t started for more than twelve months. She ran second in a recent Nyah trial and bears watching. Best of the others is THE CATS PYJAMAS (1), who was placed at Bendigo and Shepparton before a luckless unplaced Bendigo effort last week – she may lead for a long way. SELECTIONS: LORNABELLE (11), Maria Callas (7), Saint News (8), The Cats Pyjamas (1). RATINGS: 11 / 7? / 1, 8? / 2, 3? 4, 6.

He worked to the lead when a first up Shepparton winner three weeks ago, then again did plenty in an impressive victory over Robbos Retreat at Geelong last week. Only other winning chances are CAMINO HERITAGE (3), who went nicely when a first up Cranbourne second before failing in the final of that race there a fortnight ago; and KILBURNIE MARY (9), who ran home nicely from the rear when third at Bendigo recently – she won a trial here last Sunday.
