Herald Sun Form Guide : February 27th 2013
36 Herald Sun, Wednesday, February 27, 2013 heraldsun.com.au + + + + FB123 C M Y K DHS 27-FEB-2013 PAGE 36 FIRST 1 Clark Rubber Shep 6.26 2190m. $5000. Trotters T1 Or Better RBD Stand 1 95216 DOCTOR SAM Haydon Gray (C,cl) Fr 21.00 2 17538 STAR STYLE Steven Lindberg Fr 26.00 3 21427 CONCHS CRITTER Neil McCallum Fr 31.00 4 36318 HOLD THAT GRIN Stacey Towers Fr 4.50 5 0 UNSOLVED MYSTERY Brian Gath Fr 51.00 6 67731 STARLIGHT LEE John Newberry Fr 34.00 7 08908 FIERY CHIP Greg Lewis Fr 67.00 8 11224 KYVALLEY RAP Terje Melnas 10 6.50 9 122s3 WAIKARE ARISTOCRAT Graham McDermott 10 10.00 10 915s3 BAILEYS NIGHTMARE Scratched 10 --- 11 17357 LE CHABANAIS Scott Dyer 10 41.00 12 3214s ALDEBARAN SHADES NZ Chris Lang 30 1.60 TOP PICK: ALDEBARAN SHADES (12) won 7 of his 14 outings last season including the NSW Trotters Derby and after placing in the Victoria Trotters Derby behind Sunset Invasion he wound up his 3YO campaign with a handy fourth to Triumphant Monarch in the Breeders Crown Final at Melton. He has been trialling well on this circuit in recent weeks for his return and although this won t be easy for him off the 30m first up his class should take him a long way towards winning. DANGER: HOLD THAT GRIN (4) had a torrid trip here last time when beaten a long way behind Marios Dream but her form prior was excellent and she beat ALDEBARAN SHADES (12) in a workout on this circuit last Thursday night so from the front line expect her to give plenty of cheek. OTHERS: KYVALLEY RAP (8) has been sound in defeat at his past two behind Katmandonny and Tendaho have and is in with an upset show along with WAIKARE ARISTOCRAT (9) who will be better for his first up third to Chipmont Lad at Geelong 8 days ago. DOCTOR SAM (1), STAR STYLE (2), CONCHS CRITTER (3) and STARLIGHT LEE (6) are to be included in your multiples. SELECTIONS: ALDEBARAN SHADES (12), Hold That Grin (4), Kyvalley Rap (8), Waikare Aristocrat (9) RATINGS: 12/ 4/ 8/ 9/ 1,2,3,6/ 11/ 5/ 7 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifectas 4,12/ 4,12/ 1,2,3,6,8,9 for $12 which gets you 100% and 4,12/ 1,2,3,6,8,9/ 4,12 for $6 which gets you 50%) 2 Travis Frost Plumb 7.00 2190m. $5000. 3yo Trotters 3T0 To 3T2 PBD Mobile 1 646 PATCH PEPPERELL Ian White Fr 34.00 2 YANKEE MARA Chris (Jnr) Lang Fr 12.00 3 FORTUNATE DREAMS Steven Lindberg Fr 10.00 4 76s73 CHEVALS RACER Daniel Karacsay (C) Fr 8.00 5 6s8 KYVALLEY RACER Chris Lang Fr 15.00 6 410s5 HILLTOWN YANKEE Shane Hall (C) Fr 3.50 7 s5552 SUN OF SONOKO Ross Graham Fr 2.50 Second Line 8 13344 BASIL KNIGHT Haydon Gray (C) Fr 5.00 TOP PICK: SUN OF SONOKO (7) hadn t fired in three runs this campaign prior to putting his best hoof forward at Melton last Friday night when second to Roy Hobbs where he chased hard out wide in a slippery last quarter of 27.9. He can be a risky beginner so you will have to take him on trust but if he repeats his last start effort here he will beat these. DANGER: HILLTOWN YANKEE (6) resumed from a break with a fair fifth to Roy Hobbs in that same Melton contest mentioned above and he will need to lift a little bit if he is to triumph tonight but he is sure to be improved by that effort and looms as the main threat to SUN OF SONOKO (7). OTHERS: BASIL KNIGHT (8) didn t do a bad job to run fourth to Steal A Sixpence at Kilmore last time all things considered and he looks the other main winning chance with CHEVALS RACER (4), debutantes FORTUNATE DREAMS (3), YANKEE MARA (2) and the Chris Lang-prepared KYVALLEY RACER (5) having place hopes. SELECTIONS: SUN OF SONOKO (7), Hilltown Yankee (6), Basil Knight (8), Chevals Racer (4) RATINGS: 7/ 6/ 8/ 4/ 3,2,5/ 1 SUGGESTED BET: SUN OF SONOKO (7) to win 3 Peppermill Inn 3YO 7.30 1690m. $5000. 3yo 3C0 Only RBD Mobile 1 42283 LOCAL VICKA LOMBO Chris Alford Fr 3.00 2 82s07 ORTABE GOOD Greg Caldwell Fr 10.00 3 87s38 SON OF A STAR Laura Crossland Fr 12.00 4 63775 LITTLEBADGIRL Scott Dyer Fr 26.00 5 64r WINDEM UP LOMBO Dean Chandler (C) Fr 6.00 6 937 ROMANTIC BLISS David Moran (C) Fr 15.00 7 4 JIALINER Zac Phillips (C) Fr 21.00 Second Line 8 OILS JAY BEE Steven Lindberg Fr 8.00 9 65569 BENOAH Doc Wilson Fr 41.00 10 289s1 FOUR ZOE Keith Cotchin Fr 3.20 TOP PICK: LOCAL VICKA LOMBO (1) is a 10-start maiden but he will get his chance to breakthrough tonight from the ideal draw in a winnable affair. He finished runner-up to the star filly Musical Delight at Warragul three back and his latest third to Sookin Up at Cranbourne was good enough to suggest he will go close in this. DANGER: FOUR ZOE (10) showed talent in 4 runs last season and kicked off her 3YO campaign in style here 10 days ago with a runaway victory against moderate opposition. She will find this a tad harder, particularly from the draw over the sprint trip, but she will also be sharper and is sure to run well once more. OTHERS: WINDEM UP LOMBO (5) got it all wrong here last time behind Bliss Man but he has since trialled well on this track and is not without an each way show along with debutante OILS JAY BEE (8) and ORTABE GOOD (2). SON OF A STAR (3), ROMANTIC BLISS (6), JIALINER (7) and LITTLEBADGIRL (4) can place. SELECTIONS: LOCAL VICKA LOMBO (1), Four Zoe (10), Windem Up Lombo (5), Oils Jay Bee (8) RATINGS: 1/ 10/ 5/ 8,2/ 3,6/ 7,4/ 9 SUGGESTED BET: LOCAL VICKA LOMBO (1) to win 4 Hotondo Homes 3YO 8.03 1690m. $5000. 3yo 3C0 Only RBD Mobile 1 86787 MARK ATTACK Stephen Boyington Fr 34.00 2 2 MUSCLE STRIDE Chris Alford Fr 1.50 3 74200 MANTAR Brian Gath Fr 12.00 4 6796 EVENING STAR LOMBO Nathan Jack Fr 31.00 5 3 TUXEDO TOFF Don Gee Fr 15.00 6 54055 CHAIN OF GOLD NZ John Newberry Fr 26.00 7 0s LOMBO ARMALIGHT Scratched Fr --- Second Line 8 73766 BLACK JASMIN Greg Lewis Fr 41.00 9 MAJORLOOK Ian Montgomery Fr 2.70 10 5979s SILVA CHARM LOMBO Dean Chandler (C) Fr 81.00 TOP PICK: MUSCLE STRIDE (2) debuted at Cranbourne 13 days ago with a game second to Hes Kinky where he faced the breeze for the majority of the mile journey and went down fighting at the end of a 58.3 final half. He comes up with a much better barrier this time around, will be better for the experience and is clearly the one they have to beat. DANGER: MAJORLOOK (9) is a son of Art Major having his first start tonight for Ian Montgomery and he appears to have his share of talent going on his trial success on this track last Thursday night where he rated 2:01.5, slipped home in 57.1 and won by a big space. Expect a bold showing from this guy first up. OTHERS: MANTAR (3) hasn t been dangerous at his past two from bad gates but he has a better barrier here and rates as a strong place chance along with TUXEDO TOFF (5) and CHAIN OF GOLD (6) who both ran handy races behind Mcrita here last time out. SELECTIONS: MUSCLE STRIDE (2), Majorlook (9), Mantar (3), Tuxedo Toff (5) RATINGS: 2/ 9/ 3,5,6/ 4,1,8/ 10 SUGGESTED BET: Flexi Trifecta 2,9/ 2,9/ 3,5,6 ($30 gets you 500%) 5 Trot Pace Final 8.33 1690m. $5000. 4yo & up C1 Only PBD Mobile Final 1 83173 TWINDET Gary Pekin Fr 5.00 2 55681 MIKIMOTO LOMBO Chris Alford Fr 12.00 3 47211 HOPPYJOE David Moran (C) Fr 3.70 4 sr063 NICA LADY Ben Gledhill Fr 34.00 5 41513 CLASSIC LIFE Nathan Jack Fr 4.50 6 47026 SEALED PACKAGE David Jack Fr 17.00 7 34452 YES JERRY Scott Dyer Fr 21.00 Second Line 8 05522 INNOCENT VANCE Brian Gath Fr 4.00 9 76653 HENRY DUCKET NZ Matthew Newberry (C) Fr 26.00 10 05944 TAW Laura Crossland Fr 31.00 11 65484 CHEVEYO Scratched Fr --- 12 35104 MOSQUITO ZEPHYR Ashley Manton (C) Fr 15.00 TOP PICK: Heats of this final were conducted here 10 days ago and it has thrown together and even field but HOPPYJOE (3) might be the one. She was untroubled to win her heat from the front end and although the lead may not be up for grabs here she should still be dangerous. DANGER: INNOCENT VANCE (8) tried hard for second to CLASSIC LIFE (5) in his heat effort and if he can do enough to hold the back of likely leader TWINDET (1) from his trailing draw he will be a major player. OTHERS: CLASSIC LIFE (5) was an easy heat winner in all-the-way fashion and rates highly along with TWINDET (1) who was slightly disappointing in her heat defeat behind MIKIMOTO LOMBO (2) but must be respected from the perfect draw. MIKIMOTO LOMBO (2) and MOSQUITO ZEPHYR (12) are given upset claims with place prospects going to SEALED PACKAGE (6), YES JERRY (7), HENRY DUCKET (9) and TAW (10). SELECTIONS: HOPPYJOE (3), Innocent Vance (8), Classic Life (5), Twindet (1) RATINGS: 3/ 8/ 5/ 1/ 2,12/ 6,7/ 9,10/ 4 SUGGESTED BET: HOPPYJOE (3) each way on a 1 x 3 basis 6 True Value Solar 9.00 2190m. $5000.

DANGER: TROTTIN ROSSCO (8) broke his maiden here as a hot favourite 10 days ago and if he can do enough to hold the back of likely leader IM SUPERSONIC (1) from his trailing draw he will get his chance to go back-to-back. OTHERS: NO NO NO NO NO (5) has had the two runs this time in for handy efforts behind Elsu Dream and On Fire Within on this circuit and he should be nearing his peak now so include him in winning thoughts. FLYBYENITE (2) is first up for Geoff Martin and is the upset material going by his trial on this track last Thursday night. LIFE LONG VOYAGE (4) can place. SELECTIONS: IM SUPERSONIC (1), Trottin Rossco (8), No No No No No (5), Flybyenite (2) RATINGS: 1/ 8/ 5/ 2/ 4/ 11,10/ 9,12,6/ 7 SUGGESTED BET: IM SUPERSONIC (1) to win 7 Amerind Shep Trans 9.30 2190m. $5000.

DANGER: MONSIEUR DEVILLE (12) is a quality trotter who takes on the pacers here but he did beat them at Cobram four runs ago in fine style and is a big chance of doing so once more. OTHERS: EVIL TRICKSTER (5) is a speedy beginner as a rule and is a strong hope of getting the lead here so he must be given an each way show. ELSU DREAM (7) didn t have much luck behind Ponder In Paris at Bendigo last Sunday and has a rough chance along with the awkwardly drawn JUMBALAYA LOMBO (8). VENUS WILLIAMS (3), BOOM BOOM HALL (10), ME COBBER (1), SAINT LILIANA (2) and CHICK AT THE BAR (4) have place claims. SELECTIONS: CHIQUITA BROMAC (11), Monsieur Deville (12), Evil Trickster (5), Elsu Dream (7) RATINGS: 11/ 12/ 5,7,8/ 3,10/ 1,2,4/ 6 SUGGESTED BET: CHIQUITA BROMAC (11) to win Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 1 Choice Hotels 2YO 1.11 1650m. $5000. 2yo 2C0 Only RBD Mobile 1 HARGRAVE Kylie Sugars Fr 11.00 2 3s2 YOUNG MODERN Michael Stanley Fr 2.50 3 2 EXCLUSIVE MATT Cameron Maggs Fr 11.00 4 MULGRAVE Greg Sugars Fr 13.00 5 5 VILLAGE CRUISER Glenn Hunter Fr 26.00 6 BILLY MACK Kate Gath Fr 9.00 7 LOONG NIEN Darren Pace Fr 5.50 Second Line 8 REAL CHARACTER Chris Alford Fr 3.20 TOP PICK: A number of first starters who have trialled well which makes for an interesting race and a strong betting race.. Race experience favours YOUNG MODERN (2) who chased home the smart and unbeaten Yankee Rockstar last start at Melton. He gets a good draw and with a repeat performance should have him right in the finish. Hard to beat. DANGER: The main danger could be REAL CHARACTER (8) on debut for Craig Turnball who has been successful in two trial outings and was a strong and impressive winner in a recent Melton trial defeating MULGRAVE (4), one of two debutantes for Ross Sugars, his son Greg has elected to drive this one. OTHERS: LOONG NIEN (7) debuts for astute trainer Joe Pace and was another Tabcorp Park trial winner on February 11. He sat in the breeze to defeat BILLY MACK (6) from the Andy Gath stable and HARGRAVE (1) the other Ross Sugars debutante which finished fourth in the trial. All have winning chances. SELECTIONS: YOUNG MODERN (2), Real Character (8), Loong Nien (7), Billy Mack (6). RATINGS:2/8/7/6/3/4/1 SUGGESTED BET: YOUNG MODERN (2) to win. 2 choicehotels.com 1.46 2150m. $5000.

She has led at her past three for a second and win at Geelong over the short trip before an honest effort over the longer trip last time. Back to the shorter trip she appeals as top pick. DANGER: MISTER SCORCHER (8) has the ability but manners do let him down at times. A strong effort from outside the leader to salute at Bendigo makes him the main danger again. OTHERS: CARNLEY (7) led all the way in quick time from the mobile at Melton over the sprint trip. Back to stand conditions SELECTIONS: COOKEYSLASS (2), Mister Scorcher (8), Carnley (7), Keystone Blues (10).

DANGER: CULLEN TIME (8) resumes here from a spell off a Kilmore trial win. She won on debut showing ability when last in work. Go close first up here. OTHERS: MCRITA (1) resumed from a spell to win a restricted race over the longer trip at Shepparton. Ideally drawn over the short trip here she has to be included in multiples. JODILA (10) won two on end when last in work and will be improved by her first up outing. MAJESTIC SWAN (3) should be ready after two runs from a spell and has a trifecta chance along with ART DE TRIOMPHE (5) who is resuming.

Last start he worked wide early to the lead for an easy win. The one to beat despite the wide draw. DANGER: MAJOR CALYPSO (2) could be first to the pegs and has been very consistent this season including a last start win on protest carrying a flat tyre. Don t dismiss lightly. OTHERS: PREDOMINANT LOMBO (8) has an awkward draw and resumes off a twelve month break. He has four trials to his name which include two wins at Cranbourne, so he should be primed for a forward showing first up. Place chance to BELATED (9).

GO EL ZHAR (11) is an honest performer who is always a chance at the top prize. In the placings at ten of his past twelve starts, he should be hard to hold out again. DANGER: ACTION ROYALE (12) has won two of his past four, the latest finishing well at Melton. Honest effort last start, is a definite danger. OTHERS: SCOTTISH GLAMOUR (8) returns from a campaign at Menangle and she has the ability to win this if the breaks go her way. There s plenty of speed on the front line. ONE TOUGH REIGN (7) has the wide draw but did win over this trip three starts back and was held up last time.

OTHERS: ATOMIC HORIZON (8) is racing in top form. Drawn inside the second row and will need luck from there. Certain to be running on late. SHIFTING SAND (7) must be considered despite the wide draw.

With Gavin Lang aboard he should be hard to hold out. DANGER: MAJOR LANDSCAPE (12) from the strong Andy Gath stable may have the wide second row draw but was a winner at Kilmore when second up from a break. Fitter here, go close. OTHERS: JIMBARAN (2) is resuming from a long spell here but is a recent Kilmore trial winner so he should be in your calculations. BIG TIMER LOMBO (5) also resumes here from a break off a Cranbourne trial win and cannot be discounted lightly. SELECTIONS: SUPALINER (1), Major Landscape (12) Jimbaran (2), Big Timer Lombo (5).
