Herald Sun Form Guide : August 29th 2009
+ + FB123 C M Y K DHS 29-AUG-2009 PAGE 45 FIRST heraldsun.com.au Herald Sun, Saturday, August 29, 2009 45 www.tab.com.au Caulfield TODAY HERALD SUN SUPERFORM LIFTOUT PROS TALKING THE MAIL Stephen Ash BOOKMAKER (Surebet) SALINAS (Caul R1 No. 2): Won impressively first-up over 1400m and with natural improvement should be too good for this moderate lot. Tim Habel DAILY DOUBLE CAULFIELD (Races 6, 8): Take El Segundo (3) and Mic Mac (11) into Stickpin (3) and Rios (7). GUEST TIPSTER Andrew Wallace-Smith Managing Director D'Urban Race 5 Caulfield No. 8 Miss Scarlatti Race 6 Caulfield No. 3 El Segundo TRACK: Dead 4 PENETROMETER: 5.21 RAIL: Out 9m LAST TIME OUT 9m: January 26 LAST MEETING: Out 6m Aug 15 RAINFALL: 13.4mm for week IRRIGATION: 3mm for week RADAR: Overnight rain 1 RECORRIDO (8) came from last on the turn to charge home for fourth behind impressive winner Briefed on debut at Sandown. The extra 400m looks ideal for this rise to Saturday class but is back to fillies- only. SALINAS (2) is unbeaten from two runs and was brave hitting the line strongly after racing outside the leader at Flemington. TARIKS (1) drops back a cog from stakes class in the Quezette where she raced on the pace before fading. ON-PACERS: Tariks, Salinas, Sister Norma. SWOOPERS: Sister Norma, I Need To Fly, Recorrido. SUGGESTED BET: Recorrido each- way. 2 TYPICALLY open mares race. TONIC (8) was held up at a crucial stage here two weeks ago before failing narrowly. She will need luck again from an inside draw but looks well placed. The consistent PARTIVA (2) led up in the same race, was just touched off late and will go close again. Promising stayer LEICA DING (6) charged home late in the same race but may be looking for a shade more ground now. MARCH- ELLE BELLE (1) was trapped wide second-up and can improve here over the extra 200m, and Adelaide visitor SILENT SOPHIA (4) will be compet- itive if she can manage the 1400m. ON-PACERS: Marchelle Belle, Parti- va, Tonic. SWOOPERS: Sparkling Satine, Si- lent Sophia, Leica Ding, Black Minx. SUGGESTED BET: Tonic each-way, box quinellas 1, 2, 4, 6, 8. 3 LOADS of speed here from Adelaide visitor CERBERUS GAL (2), BELIEVE'N'SUC- CEED (3) and SOLCHOW (5), who should set this up for ANNESONG (1) to swoop home. Well weighted after the 3kg claim. DELYARA (4) is a smart mare who can improve on her first-up run on firmer ground. She was just beaten by Annesong here over 1200m in Group class in February. VELOCITEA (9) was impressive win- ning first-up at Sandown in March and resumes again. ON-PACERS: Cerberus Gal, Belie- ve'n'succeed, Solchow. SWOOPERS: Annesong, Delyara, Velocitea. SUGGESTED BET: Annesong each- way, quinellas with 4, 9. 4 HOT race with Peter Moody newcomer TICKETS (2) the key runner. He had strong Group 1 form in Sydney in the autumn and looks a Caulfield Guineas prospect. He will need luck from an inside draw but will be running on strongly. Others resuming with claims include TOLLE- SPRIT (7) and MONT FLEURI (16), who looked a quality filly in her only start when she won here in March. Of those with early season form BRIEFED (8) charged home to win in weaker grade, running fast sectionals on soft ground at Sandown, and STARSPANGLEDBANNER (1), a query at 1200m and drawn wide, will go forward and give a great sight. ON-PACERS: Starspangledbanner, Baby Corn. SWOOPERS: Tickets, Come Hither, Tollesprit, Briefed, Mont Fleuri. SUGGESTED BET: Tickets straight out, quinellas with 7, 8, 16. 5 WITH likely favourite DRIF- FIELD GOLD (4) sidelined with a foot abscess, stablemate LIGHT VISION (2) comes right into the race. He covered ground and battled on well first-up and drops 2.5kg. MISS MAREN (6) won thanks to a top ride when resuming two weeks ago. She will be hitting the line strongly again and won second-up last campaign. MISS SCARLATTI (8) ran on well when resuming. She's a classy mare who can race handy. ON-PACERS: Light Vision, Sand Sweeper, Mr Paparazzi. SWOOPERS: Driffield Gold, Miss Maren, Rubijon, Miss Scarlatti, Van- dalo. SUGGESTED BET: Light Vision each-way, quinellas with 6, 8. 6 LIGHTLY raced MIC MAC (11) is ideally placed for his first tilt at weight-for-age. The four draw is perfect and he should be able to dictate terms and sprint clear. His main dangers are backmarkers WHOBEGOTYOU (9) and EL SEGUNDO (3), who gets an 8kg swing for a one-length defeat in the Aurie's Star. ORANGE COUNTY (6) had little galloping room in the straight when a close-up fifth in the Liston. He's better known as a handicapper but should get a soft run on the pace from his inside draw. VON COSTA DE HERO (10) has developed a bad habit of being slowly away. He did race on-pace when fifth in the Orr Stakes in February and has the ability to contend if he gets his racing manners right. ON-PACERS: Mic Mac, Orange County. SWOOPERS: El Segundo, Whobe- gotyou, Von Costa De Hero. SUGGESTED BET: Mic Mac straight out.7 TOP sprint field here with first- uppers HERE DE ANGELS (2), FIRST COMMAND (10) and HUXSSEN (14) key runners. Huxssen has a blistering finishing burst and if they are swooping will take holding out. He has good fresh form in weaker grade. First Command looked above average stringing together a sequence of three-year-old wins in the autumn. HERE DE ANGELS (2) is a proven Group class sprinter who would have won here first-up last time but for missing the start. BEL MER (5) can improve on her first-up Bletchingly run. She's best suited saved for a late run and will go back from her wide draw. ON-PACERS: Grand Duels, Imasha- dow, First Command, Augusta Proud. SWOOPERS: Let Go Thommo, Here De Angels, Bel Mer, Huxssen. SUGGESTED BET: Huxssen each- way. 8 KEY spring race for Cups hope SHOCKING (10) and former Kiwi RIOS (7), but the race-fit STICKPIN (3) gets his chance here. Well in with the claim after two excellent weight-for-age runs. He can box-seat from the five draw and this is his pet trip. RIOS (7) is unbeaten at 1400m and has a set weights win over Toorak winner Alamosa in New Zeal- and. He hit the line well behind Mic Mac at his Australian debut. Shocking will get a long way back but has a big finish. If the predicted rain comes JUNGLE RULER (9) will come into contention; if it stays away DIAMONDS AT DUSK (11) can place. ON-PACERS: Jungle Ruler, Dia- monds At Dusk. SWOOPERS: Stickpin, Majestical, Rios, Shocking, Excelltastic. SUGGESTED BET: Stickpin each- way, quinellas with 7, 10. MIDNIGHT OIL with TIM HABEL HOT JOCKS STEVEN King won the TAB Sportsbet Jockey Challenge at monster odds a fortnight ago at Caulfield and looks a big chance to do exactly the same today. He is one of the best riders in the country and teaming up with the powerful Mark Kavanagh stable could salute at nice odds again. THE MARKET $4.00 Luke Nolen $4.40 Danny Nikolic $4.40 Craig Williams $5.00 Craig Newitt $7.50 Any other indiv. jockey $9.50 Dwayne Dunn $10.00 Steven King $18.00 Steven Arnold Nicely drawn: Orange County has an inside gate and should have the run of the race in the Memsie Stakes. Peter Moody TRAINER SALINAS (Caul R1 No. 2): Very happy with her since her first-up win. Nice filly who should go close. SACHA ROYALE (Caul R2 No. 9): She's going very well. She will need a fast tempo though. FLYING TRYST (Caul R2 No. 10): Just ran into dead ends last week in Adelaide. It was like a barrier trial and she took no harm from that. Looking for her to settle closer to the lead. CARLTON FORWARD (Caul R4 No. 5): Not well drawn. I think he will want further ground this campaign. Looking for a good run. TICKETS (Caul R4 No. 2): He's a very smart colt. He will get back off the speed but I expect him to hit the line hard. MASKED ASSASIN (Caul R7 No. 4): He's going very well. He's inasgoodashapeashecanbe. Might need to get out to 1400m to show his best. PILLAR OF HERCULES (Caul R7 No. 11): Very talented horse resuming. Can prove hard to catch but should be running on well. EXCELLTASTIC (Caul R8 No. 12): Happy with him. Will want longer but if they are swooping home won't be without a chance. HEADWAY (R'hill R6 No. 12): She just keeps improving. Golden Slipper placegetter who pleased me with her first-up run. I'm expecting a good run. Adam Hamilton EACH-WAY ROSEHILL (R8 No. 7): McClintock's moods can vary greatly, but if he is in the right frame of mind expect him to be extremely eager to lead and the race commentator to be calling his name regularly over the final 100m. Michael Manley JOCKEY CHALLENGE Dan Nikolic looks good value in today's TAB Sportsbet Jockey challenge at $4.40. He has seven rides with three good winning hopes: Mic Mac, Rios and Starspangledbanner. Nick Quinn WIN ROSEHILL (R8 No. 4): Fist Of Fury is an exciting young sprinter who will appreciate the drop in class after being competitive in Melbourne Group 1s. Has form behind some of the best sprinters such as Scenic Blast, Northern Meteor and Swiss Ace. If he can reproduce that form he will send punters home on a winning note. The BIG6 will operate on the following meetings. Caulfield gallops: Leg 1: Race 3: 1.35. Leg 2: Race 4: 2.13. Leg 3: Race 5: 2.50. Leg 4: Race 6: 3.30. Leg 5: Race 7: 4.10. Leg 6: Race 8: 4.48. The Meadows greyhounds: Leg 1: Race 4: 8.20. Leg 2: Race 5: 8.38. Leg 3: Race 6: 8.57. Leg 4: Race 7: 9.20. Leg 5: Race 8: 9.42. Leg 6: Race 9: 10.05. THE BANKERS ON WEIGHTS: ANNESONG (R3 No. 1) ON POTENTIAL: HUXSSEN (R7 No. 14) DOWN IN CLASS: STICKPIN (R8 No. 3) $50 FLEXI QUADDIE for 52.08%: 2, 6/3, 6, 9, 11/2, 5, 10, 14/3, 7, 10
