Herald Sun Form Guide : August 28th 2009
+ 56 Herald Sun, Friday, August 28, 2009 + Cranbourne Sprint Lane: Yes Daily Double: 5, 7 Quaddie: 4, 5, 6, 7. TAB CODE P H TOUCHTONE 26 1 Rapidvite 2YO Pace 1.01 1609m. $5000. 2yo 2A0 To 2A1 PBD Mobile 1 0 BLOWTORCH 2 68776 GLACIAL 3 647s5 MATTER OF TASTE 4 58 DARCY TEE 6 66s72 EXTRAVAGANT BEACH 7 Second Line 8 5 56867 BLACK CRUISER 06 NEXT SOUND 895 INGOODNIK 9 86987 HANDS OF LIFE Craig’s call: MATTER OF TASTE (3) was resuming since April when he was left stranded on the outside of the leader and boxed on fairly well for fifth last outing. He should be fitter and is better drawn for this assignment so he will prove hard to beat. NO MACHN AROUND (10) pushed forward to find the lead and scored at Kilmore two starts back. He got a long way back after being caught wide last time and is worth another chance. BLOWTORCH (1) was making his debut when he was in a nice position behind the leader but broke stride mid-race at Warragul. He was going fairly well at the trials prior and is a possible improver. GLACIAL (2) will appreciate a better draw than his latest sixth while DARCY TEE (4) and BLACK CRUISER (5) both are minor place hopes in the event. SELECTIONS: MATTER OF TASTE (3), No Machn Around (10), Blowtorch (1), Glacial (2) RATINGS: 3,10/ 1,2/ 4,5 SUGGESTED BET: MATTER OF TASTE (3) each way 10 44819 NO MACHN AROUND John Justice Fr 13.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr 26.00 Ahmed Taiba Fr ★2.50 2 Rapidvite 2YO Pace 1.36 1609m. $5000. 2yo 2A0 To 2A1 PBD Mobile 1 34645 RHONDA RUDE 2 3 4 5 2 TRAVTIANO 6 59413 I LOOK A LOT 7 06643 MANNY TIAVON Second Line 8 9 6 PARK SIGN 13 FRISKY RISKY RITA Craig’s call: TRAVTIANO (5) pushed forward to race without cover and battled on bravely when a debut second to Hilton Bromac at Warragul. He won three trials prior to that effort and looks to have a promising future. I LOOK A LOT (6) finished third in the same race at Warragul where he raced out three wide for the last lap and tried hard in the latter stages. He won at Cranbourne prior and is one of the leading chances again. FRISKY RISKY RITA (9) won nicely on debut then trailed the leader and was held up momentarily on the turn when a handy third at Shepparton. She has shown ability in her two starts to date and is a winning chance from her trailing draw. MANNY TIAVON (7) pushed forward from the second row and was left stranded on the outside of the leader when a brave third to MISS TRICKIN LOMBO (10) at Warragul. He is terribly drawn but is ready to break through for a win. PRIDDY GOOD (4) (Armbro Operative – Our MacMillie) is a first starter for trainer Tony Xiriha that finished third to The Vadooch at a Bacchus Marsh trial on Saturday and is worth a place ticket. SELECTIONS: TRAVTIANO (5), I Look A Lot (6), Frisky Risky Rita (9), Manny Tiavon (7) RATINGS: 5/ 6,9/ 7/ 1,3,10/ 4?

He finished well at Moonee Valley on August 15 and looks very hard to beat against this line up. MASTER VISION (3) hasn’t finished further back than fourth in his nine starts to date so he is very consistent. He seemingly had his chance when second at Cranbourne last time but he should run his usual honest race. JASPERS BABE (2) is a maiden from 35 starts but was placed at Cranbourne two starts back and meets similar opposition here. BOOKMAKERS GLORY (8) has been unplaced at his two efforts to date but won a recent trial and is a possible improver from his trailing draw. SELECTIONS: RICH PICKINGS (5), Master Vision (3), Jaspers Babe (2), Bookmakers Glory (8) RATINGS: 5/ 3/ 2/ 8 SUGGESTED BET: RICH PICKINGS (5) to win 7 0s89s STELLA MADELIEF 60 BOOKMAKERS GLORY Graeme McIntosh Fr 21.00 Shane McGuinness Fr 11.00 4 Schweppes Pace 2.46 2080m. $5000.

He was placed at his previous four starts and finished nicely behind the smart mare Pacific Playgirl two runs ago so he must be respected. A FALCON CAN (8) was having his first run for five weeks when a close third to Big Bad Shady at Ballarat on Saturday night. He should be fitter for that run and has built up a consistent record so he is worth thought on an each way basis. GET ON BOARD (2) possesses early speed and was shuffled back in the field mid-race when a fast finishing third to Ayu Gypsy at Warragul last week. He gets into this race with a concession claim and is worth thought on an each way basis. YMBRO COCO (3) was prominent in the early stages but was shuffled right out to last so he had little luck at Warragul last time. He is a minor place chance along with ADVANCE DUNDEE (7), which has disappointed since coming from New Zealand but is capable of better. SELECTIONS: SMART AND MIGHTY (6), A Falcon Can (8), Get On Board (2), Ymbro Coco (3) RATINGS: 6/ 8/ 2,3/ 7 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 6,8/ 2,3,6,7,8/ 2,3,6,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) Gavin Lang Fr 5.50 Scratched Fr — Matt Cormick (C) Fr 6.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr 2.50 Peter Van Hostauyen Fr 17.00 Chris Alford Fr ★2.00 Glenn Hunter Fr 21.00 99 JUST BETWEEN US 84 RUFUS DE LOCK PRIDDY GOOD Scott Dyer Fr 11.00 Greg Sugars Fr 34.00 Glenn Hunter Fr 21.00 Tony Xiriha Fr 16.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr ★2.70 John Caldow Fr 4.20 Paul Grech Fr 11.00 Chris Alford Fr 8.00 Shane McGuinness Fr 11.00 John Caldow Fr 3.50 Harry Peace Fr 21.00 Glenn Douglas Fr 11.00 Damian Wilson Fr 11.00 Kylie Sugars Fr 26.00 Craig Rail’s specials: BEST BET: BEST VALUE: HARNESS RACING TODAY Harold Park Rich Pickings (Race 3, No. 5) Travtiano (Race 2, No. 5) BEST ROUGHIE: Shannons Legacy (Race 6, No. 6) Rail’s $50 Flexi Quaddie for 52.08% 2,6,8/ 7,9,11,12/ 1,4/ 5,6,9,11 5 Rapidvite 3YO Pace 3.21 2080m. $5000. 3yo 3A0 To 3A1 PBD Mobile 6 43610 BRATSKI 4 48464 MISS HAYLEY CLAIR 5 1 53644 GOOD LIVING 2 56668 MERRI CRACKER 3 Second Line 8 s3372 SHAKA SPIRIT 9 54355 THE INNKEEPER 7 82438 FINAL REQUEST 10 74899 SAHARA MISS (Em1) 11 83264 STICKEMUP Craig’s call: THE SYSTEM ACE (12) is a lightly raced filly with ability. She finished strongly for an eye-catching fourth at Kilmore last week after a third at Geelong where she broke at the start and finished handily. She is still learning but should take beating in this line up. STICKEMUP (11) raced out three wide for the entire trip and ran an enormous race for fourth to Arlington Road at Warragul last week. He has impressed since coming from New South Wales and deserves to break through for a win. THE INNKEEPER (9) has been finishing nicely at his past two attempts and rates as an each way chance from his trailing draw. FINAL REQUEST (7) raced against strong opposition at Moonee Valley last outing and finished third to the New South Wales pacer Deadsetlucky prior. JACKS MAJORITY (3) (Kinney Hanover – Romantic Waters) is a first starter for trainer Max Cavey, which is well drawn but was unplaced in three starts back in April and May. SELECTIONS: THE SYSTEM ACE (12), Stickemup (11), The Innkeeper (9), Final Request (7) RATINGS: 12/ 7,9,11/ 3? 6,8/ 1,4 SUGGESTED BET: 12 16434 THE SYSTEM ACE Casey Parker (C) Fr 11.00 Brian Gath Fr 8.00 John Justice Fr 7.00 Jodi Quinlan Fr 7.00 Terry Lamont Fr 1,6,7,8,9,11,12 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) Flexi Trifecta 7,9,11,12/ 7,9,11,12/ 6 Trios Tabaret Pace 3.58 2080m. $5000.

This race is no harder and she should prove hard to beat again. BRIALINGER BOY (1) was resuming since June when he sprinted nicely from the 500m to beat Powerful Tycoon at Ballarat on Saturday. He possesses a good turn of speed and is drawn to go close. PACE AVILLE (8) worked out of the gate, gained a one out and one back trail and battled on well for third at Warragul last week. She places more often than she wins but is worth thought from her trailing draw. YOU TWO BONO (5) won at Maryborough last outing and trialled well after racing without cover at Bacchus Marsh on Saturday so he could show up. SELECTIONS: PACIFIC PLAYGIRL (4), Brialinger Boy (1), Pace Aville (8), You Two Bono (5) RATINGS: 4/ 1,8/ 5/ 6 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta with 4 to win from 1,5,6,8 (Cost $20, which gives 166%) Scott Dyer Fr 16.00 7 Trainers Bonanza 4.38 2080m. $5000.

He has been placed in a Kilmore trial since and should go close despite being first up since April. MOON SPIRIT (9) is shooting for five wins in succession and continues to improve with the benefit of racing. She recorded fast time at Geelong last outing and is capable of taking the next step forward. POCKET LEGEND (11) gets into this race with a concession claim and possesses a powerful finishing burst. He didn’t run on as expected last time but had to be driven hard to hold a forward position in the early stages and he seems to respond better when he is allowed to balance up in the early stages of the event. RUN FLOYD RUN (6) trailed the leader and used the sprint when he scored at Cranbourne on June 06. He finished fourth to the smart pacer Sarum Prince last time and is a value chance. SELECTIONS: LIGHTNING TWO UP (5), Moon Spirit (9), Pocket Legend (11), Run Floyd Run (6) RATINGS: 5/ 9,11/ 6/ 1,2,8,10 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 5,9/ 5,6,9,11/ 1,2,5,6,8,9,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 55.55%) Glenn Douglas Fr 6.00 Chris Alford Fr 4.50 Craig Demmler Fr 8.00 Matt Cormick (C,cl) Fr 13.00 8 Majestic Son Trot 5.18 2575m. $5000. T1 Or Better Trotters RBD Stand Craig’s call: The former New Zealand trotter YOU SO AND SO (4) holds the key to the result of this event. He has been runner up at his past two attempts at Addington and gets into this race nicely with a concession claim so he must be respected at his first start for trainer Dean Braun. WONT BE THE SAME (2) trailed the leader and had every chance when third to Skyvalley in a heat of the Breeders Crown then finished unplaced in the final. This is a massive drop in class and he should make his presence felt. FRODO HEST (7) has been placed at his past three attempts and finished nicely behind Gluteus Maximus last time so he is worth an investment. TAISON (10) has done a great job since coming from New Zealand and led most of the way to beat a handy field at Geelong last outing. SELECTIONS: YOU SO AND SO (4), Wont Be The Same (2), Frodo Hest (7), Taison (10) RATINGS: 2,4/ 7,10/ 5,8 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 2,4,5,7,8,10 (Cost $20, which gives 16.66%) 5 337s6 MOTU SHEER DELIGHT NZ 6 87005 DELARGO BOY 7 0223s FRODO HEST NZ 8 87828 LELIS BOY 9 30s59 NOOPY DUA 10 14141 TAISON NZ 1 445r3 AIDAN ANABETTIN 2 66636 WONT BE THE SAME 3 97651 IDOL EXTROVERT 4 48422 YOU SO AND SO NZ Adam Crettenden (C,cl) 10 9.00 Stacey Towers (C,cl) 20 ★4.00 Greg Sugars 20 9.00 Robert Olsen 20 51.00 Michael Stanley 30 9.00 Mary-Jane Mifsud 30 10.00 Jaime Madruga 30 26.00 Chris Alford 50 34.00 John Kelly Fr 11.00 Scott Dyer 10 ★4.00 2 Pace 1 85245 SWEET AS REIGN 2 61631 ONAGIVENDAY 3 13136 SNAZZY SHANNON 4 89374 JONELL SULLIVAN 5 1s072 RAPID RESPONSE 6 51438 HEY ROCK 7 92417 MAUDIE Second Line 8 48864 CANONLYBEONE 9 05723 DENS BLUE BEEJAY 10 51s90 IM THEODORE (ODM) 7.00 1760m. $14000.

He has built up a very good strike rate and looks well placed against this line up. ONAGIVENDAY (2) was shuffled back on the markers but gained an inside run and accelerated nicely to score in fast time at Newcastle last outing. He is a short course specialist and should give a bold showing from his good draw on the front line. SWEET AS REIGN (1) has had several chances since her latest victory but was placed behind the top mare Lady Lexus at Penrith three starts back so she is worth thought from the pole position. SELECTIONS: HEY ROCK (6), Onagivenday (2), Sweet As Reign (1), Maudie (7) SUGGESTED BET: HEY ROCK (6) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,6/ 1,2,6/ 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 (Cost $20, which gives 37.03%) G W McElhinney Ft 13.00 Scratched Ft — M A Formosa Ft 51.00 3 Schweppes Winter Cup 7.30 1760m. $20000.

He is likely to find the lead again and should take catching but this is his toughest test this campaign. CANT BLUFF ME (3) is racing in career best form and sprinted sharply out wide on the track when a decisive winner in a 1.56.5 mile at Moonee Valley last outing. He is a tough type and will make his presence felt. FRANCO NESTER (9) has found the front in his past two victories at Harold Park and held off the tough pacer JACKSON GRANT (7) last time. He drops back to a trailing draw now but is very versatile and rates as an each way chance. THE LIGHTNING RIDGE (1) is a fast beginner from the mobile and races best over the sprint distance. SELECTIONS: LONESTAR LEGEND (5), Cant Bluff Me (3), Franco Nester (9), The Lightning Ridge (1) SUGGESTED BET: LONESTAR LEGEND (5) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 3,5/ 1,3,5,9/ 1,2,3,5,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 66.66%) M J Day Ft 21.00 J D Pengilly Ft 7.00 4 3YO Pace 2 86511 ANNAS ACE 3 12127 EMJAYEM GRAND 4 01285 TROOPER SHANNON 5 79212 BLUE AND REGAL 6 93315 WASTE OF TIME 7 51429 FAIR BLAZING NZ Second Line 8 61s15 DANNY ROGER NZ 9 42434 ART OF FLYING 10 s3111 DEADSETLUCKY 8.00 Q1 2160m. $12500. 3yo 3MA0 To 3MA1 PBD Mobile 1 32211 TULLY TOWN G W McElhinney Ft ★3.00 J T Hewitt (C) Ft 26.00 B P Fitzpatrick Ft 41.00 C J Fitzpatrick (C) Ft 51.00 A M Siejka (C) Ft 11.00 Craig’s call: This race looks a match between the smart pacers EMJAYEM GRAND (3) and DEADSETLUCKY (10). EMJAYEM GRAND (3) chased hard for second to Bonavista Bay in a semi-final of the Breeders Crown then finished unplaced in the memorable final behind Tintin In America. This is a big drop in class and he is perfectly drawn so he gets the nod. DEADSETLUCKY (10) overcame a tough run to win at Harold Park last outing and has won 8 of his 12 starts. The barrier draw is a disadvantage but he will make his presence felt. ART OF FLYING (9) is a consistent colt that was placed behind Captain Joy in a heat of the Breeders Crown then finished well from back in the pack when fourth to DANNY RODGER (8) last time. He has a trailing draw and looks to be a strong place hope. DANNY RODGER (8) looked good on his Australian debut but disappointed last time ($1-60 fav). He is awkwardly drawn on the inside of the second line but could run into a place.

He drops back to a trailing draw but is one of the leading chances again. OUR CROWN LAW (6) possesses gate speed and pushed forward to find the lead when he won two starts back. He had little luck and finished fast from the inside of the second line last week and should prove hard to beat here. ROCKET BEEBEE (5) seemingly had every chance when second last week but has been in placed four of his five starts and meets a similar line up here. DARREN JAMES (4) is a former New Zealander that edged past his rivals in the run to the judge at Menangle on his local debut. This race is harder but he should have benefited from that outing.

He is poorly drawn but meets a suitable line up here. PACE AND VISION (1) will appreciate his best draw for some time and showed good early pace when he scored at Bankstown three starts back. He is ideally drawn and he must be respected. JASPER GOLD (4) led out, took a trail and finished a distant third to the smart pacer Big Fella Mach last outing. He was a winner against similar opposition at Harold Park in June and is not without a chance. KIEWA VALLEY (2) is capable of sprinting to the line quickly with the right trail forward and will be suited by the small field of eight runners.

He sat without cover to win the Tatlow Stakes last week and is the class runner of the field. ART OF WAR (5) has been placed in 7 of his 9 starts and finished solidly for third (Neck) in the Tatlow Stakes last week. He moves to the front line now and must be respected. ROYAL WAGER (8) stormed home and just failed to grab LOTS MORE GRINS (9) at big odds ($106) last week. He is awkwardly drawn but could run into a place again.

He possesses a powerful finishing burst and meets a suitable line up first up. MASTER MAORI (7) kicked back strongly when challenged by Jazz Legend two starts back then was placed under the mobile conditions last outing. He has worked back to his best form in recent times and is worth an investment. RAYLEIGHS CROWN (6) was runner up behind Gavlenn Ryoshy last outing when he led out then took a trail under the mobile conditions. He is usually foolproof and looks to be one of the main chances here. BROADACROSSTHEBEAM (2) will be suited by a front line draw and is a place chance if he is able to find the lead.

He joins trainer Glen Tippet and should run a forward race again in this similar grade. THE WILD STORM (6) settled in the second half of the field, came three wide in the final lap and boxed on bravely for sixth (5m) in the same race last week. He led when a game second to Ben Junior prior and is one of the leading chances again. THE RAVENITE (3) endured a tough run on the outside of the leader and battled on well at his latest fourth. He won at Penrith prior and is drawn to go close. TULLY RACHAEL (7) has won four of her past five starts but is rising in class for this assignment and has the worst possible draw. GOLCONDA GLEANN (2) has met strong opposition at his past two attempts and is a possible improver from his good draw on the front line.
