Herald Sun Form Guide : February 9th 2013
44 Herald Sun, Saturday, February 9, 2013 heraldsun.com.au + + + + FB123 C M Y K DHS 9-FEB-2013 PAGE 44 FIRST OTHERS: MAJOR DENIAL (5) was runner up in the Breeders Challenge last season and should be fitter after her two starts back from a spell. She had little luck from an awkward draw at Penrith last outing and is worth thought on an each way basis. LAAGANOOSH (3) possesses a powerful finishing burst and didn t have much luck in a slowly run race when eighth at Menangle last outing. She is a value chance and MISSING LETTERS (1), which was placed in the Breeders Challenge last season, is capable of showing improvement from the inside alley. SELECTIONS: ASKMENOW (9), Millwood Liberty (10), Major Denial (5), Laaganoosh (3) SUGGESTED BET: ASKMENOW (9) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 5,9,10/ 1,3,5,9,10/ 1,3,5,7,8,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 8 Trot 9.45 1609m. $22000.

He was runner up in the Dullard Cup in December and is clearly the horse to beat. DANGER: SUPPER WALTZ WILSON (10) bounced back to his best form with a big win under the standing start conditions last outing. He broke the track record from the mobile start at Albion Park in December so he is worth thought. OTHERS: KING OF STRATHFIELD (4) worked hard and went down fighting when second behind RED SAMURAI (3) last week. He recorded a slick mile of 1.56.8 when he scored on December 22 and is one of the leading chances again. NEVILLE VAUGHAN (9) is resuming since a luckless sixth in the Nick Robin Memorial in November and was trotting in great form when he was last in work. He is widely drawn but competed against the pacers in a recent Menangle trial fourth and rates as an each way chance. There are many horses capable of filling a place in this good field to end the program. SELECTIONS: VULCAN (8), Supper Waltz Wilson (10), King Of Strathfield (4), Neville Vaughan (9) SUGGESTED BET: VULCAN (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta with 8 to win from 1,2,3,4,6,9,10 (Cost $20, which gives 47.62%) 1 Pacers Hcp 6.20 2230m. $5400.

He is a Group One place getter this season and should prove hard to beat against this line up. DANGER: GRAND STRIDE (3) is a brilliant 4yo pacer when racing at his peak but he can mix his form on occasions. He looked good in winning first up in a slick mile of 1.52.4 then endured a similar run and tired into fifth (PURE POWER (5) second) last time. His win in the Breeders Challenge last season was unbelievable so he will take beating if he works back to his peak form. OTHERS: EXCITEUSINTHECITY (4) gained a nice trail throughout and finished over the top of Mantoman to win in a 1.53.8 mile last outing. He has been very competitive at Menangle since he came from Victoria and he should run his usual honest race. BETTOR BET BLACK (6) is a brilliant beginner from the mobile and should obtain a prominent position so he appears to be a value hope. GOD SEND (2) is also a fast beginner but he was headed off at the start by BETTOR BET BLACK (6) on January 26 and his recent efforts have been a little below his best form. SELECTIONS: PURE POWER (5), Grand Stride (3), Exciteusinthecity (4), Bettor Bet Black (6) SUGGESTED BET: PURE POWER (5) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 3,5/ 2,3,4,5,6,7/ 2,3,4,5,6,7 (Cost $20, which gives 50%) 2 FFA 6.45 1609m. $24000.

He is awkwardly drawn but he is racing consistently so he gets the nod. DANGER: WASHAKIE (3) and EXCEL STRIDE (7) are the class runners of the field but both horses were disappointing in the Australia Day Cup. EXCEL STRIDE (7) gained a perfect run off the pace in that event and would have been suited by a hectic tempo but he only laboured into fourth. He is an outstanding pacer at his best form and held on to win at Menangle prior so he is worth another chance. OTHERS: WASHAKIE (3) has raced below his best at his past three starts and set up the pace when he tired from the 400m last outing. He won the Queensland Championship, Presidents Cup and Treuer Memorial at the beginning of the season so he is a winning chance if he can return to his peak form. LOUS LAD (1) and ERLE DALE (9) have both been racing well against slightly easier opposition and have each way claims in this interesting open class event. SELECTIONS: CHARIOT KING (8), Excel Stride (7), Washakie (3), Lous Lad (1) SUGGESTED BET: CHARIOT KING (8) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 1,3,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 3 Pace 7.15 2300m. $12000.

He was slow to begin from the standing start last week so he should run an improved race here. DANGER: MASTER JOY (1) has been racing against strong opposition in Victoria and has built up a consistent record in regular visits to Menangle. He worked out of the gate, gained a trail and boxed on well for fourth behind the smart pacer Keayang Cullen last week so he is worth thought on an each way basis. OTHERS: FERNLEIGH RENEGADE (3) is a fast beginner from the mobile and is a good chance of finding the lead. He led and battled on fairly for fourth behind the smart pacer Gaius Caesar last week so he could run a better race against this grade. JULIUS BARDON (4) possesses a powerful finishing burst and has performed well at his past three attempts at Menangle. He missed out narrowly behind Rupeeno Cullen two starts back and rates as an each way chance here. SELECTIONS: MACH WIPER (8), Master Joy (1), Fernleigh Renegade (3), Julius Bardon (4) SUGGESTED BET: MACH WIPER (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 1,8/ 1,2,3,4,7,8/ 1,2,3,4,7,8 (Cost $20, which gives 50%) 4 Raith Mem Stakes 7.45 1609m. $40000. 3yo Fillies RBD Mobile Group 3 1 21111 GYPSY BABE G J Fitzpatrick Fr 11.00 2 12323 ASKMENOW NZ (EMERG) Scratched Fr --- 3 59212 ITZ NOSURPRISESTHERE NZ L A McCarthy Fr 4.00 4 11s16 ART IN PARIS R P Morris (C) Fr 21.00 5 58s11 COURAGEOUSNQUICK R W Petroff Fr 3.80 6 41222 ALL STARZZZ SHARK D G Weeks Fr 26.00 7 11s4 IM TONDELAYO T J Munday Fr 21.00 8 21275 TARELLE (EMERG) Scratched Fr --- 9 127s1 MUSICAL DELIGHT N R Jack Fr 2.10 10 937s3 VICTREE BONITA D J McCall Fr 34.00 11 30s11 OHYOULUCKYTHING NZ B P Fitzpatrick Fr 8.50 12 123s1 FRITH Scratched Fr --- TOP PICK: MUSICAL DELIGHT (9) won the Australian Gold last season and returned from a break in grand style with a runaway victory at Warragul in fast time. She has won seven of her ten starts and possesses a dynamic turn of speed so she will take beating on her Menangle debut. DANGER: COURAGEOUSNQUICK (5) won the Pink Bonnet at Menangle last year and has returned from a break in handy form with victories at Shepparton and Maryborough. She possesses early speed and must be considered as a winning chance. OTHERS: GYPSY BABE (1) didn t race as a juvenile and continues to improve with the benefit of racing. She recorded a very quick final quarter of 26.2 seconds when she beat ALL STARZZZ SHARK (6) at Menangle last outing and her dam is the former top mare Ashlees Babe so she is worth thought. ITZ NOSURPRISESTHERE (3) is a former New Zealand pacer that joins trainer Dean Braun. She was runner up in a mile of 1.55.4 last outing and finished a close second behind star filly Lady Patti in a Melton trial on Monday (2.1.7, 56.9, 28.1) so she must be kept safe. SELECTIONS: MUSICAL DELIGHT (9), Courageousnquick (5), Gypsy Babe (1), Itz Nosurprisesthere (3) SUGGESTED BET: MUSICAL DELIGHT (9) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 1,3,5,9 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 5 Pace 8.15 2300m. $22000.

He hit the lead at the 150m and was run down in the latter stages when second to California Sunset in the Country Series Final last outing. DANGER: MY TEMUDJIN (7) has been racing in great form in Victoria and is one of the leading chances again. He pushed forward to race without cover and proved too good when a big winner at Melton last outing so he is tough enough to be competitive on his Menangle debut. OTHERS: NEWGATE (8) is racing in career best form having been placed at his past five starts against similar grade and is an each way chance again. He is likely to go back at the start but he has been finishing off powerfully over the past few weeks. BOUGHT ON LOOKS (2) possesses a brilliant finishing burst and won impressively at Melton three starts back so he is worth thought from the good draw. SELECTIONS: MAGIC BLISS (10), My Temudjin (7), Newgate (8), Bought On Looks (2) SUGGESTED BET: MAGIC BLISS (10) each way EXOTIC BET: Flexi Boxed Trifecta 1,2,7,8,10 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 6 Pace 8.47 1609m. $22000.

She ran a huge race after galloping shortly after the start when second in the NSW Oaks last season and she will take beating in this event. DANGER: LOUVRE (3) is resuming since an unplaced effort in the Breeders Crown Final but she did compete in the Angelique Club Cup, which was called off after 1600m due to a fall last week so she should be somewhere near her peak form. She won the Breeders Challenge last season and was runner up in the Australian Oaks so she is a classy individual and must be respected. OTHERS: CHARDANAE (10) recorded a brilliant mile of 1.51.8 when she scored on December 15 then beat a smart horse in Poacher last week so she is racing in peak form. She is poorly drawn but is very versatile so she has each way claims. LITTLE RED CLOUD (6) hasn t had any luck in securing a clear passage at her past three attempts and possesses a powerful finishing burst so she appears to be a value chance. DANIELA HANTUCHOVA (7) and RUPEENO CULLEN (8) are both capable of filling a place in this good quality races for the mares.

She was runner up behind the top pacer Our Femme Fatale at Ballarat two starts back then endured a tough run in fast time last week. This looks to be a suitable assignment and she will take beating. DANGER: MILLWOOD LIBERTY (10) is a lightly raced filly that recorded a brisk mile of 1.55.6 on her debut then ran a huge race after galloping early at her next attempt. She was spelled after that run and resumed with a big win after working hard at Bankstown on Monday so she should make her presence felt.
