Herald Sun Form Guide : July 4th 2009
heraldsun.com.au Flemington TODAY PROS TALKING Stephen Ash BOOKMAKER (Surebet) CHAMELEON(Flem R3 No. 2): Good runs at her last two, top jockey on board and well drawn. Out to the 1600m which looks ideal for this filly. John Moloney TRAINER GEORGIAMISS (Flem R3 No. 11): She’s an improving type. This is the strongest race she’s come into so far but she’s a nice each-way chance. SARATIME(Flem R5 No. 6): He’s racing as though he wants ground but we’ll see. He’s failed over similar trips before. What he’s really looking for is a soft track. ZYZXX(Flem R7 No. 12): Wasn’t well ridden last start, at all. At the end of the day it was a pretty good run. He’s finished close up behind Gran Sasso before. Robbie Griffiths TRAINER SUPERSWELL(Flem R1 No. 12): Well bred filly but I’ve thrown her in the deep end. It’s always hard up the straight without having had a look but I have an opinion of her and she won’t be disgraced. BELTROIS (Flem R2 No. 10): Back 100 metres, which might not be an advantage but has been racing really well ridden from behind. BIANSHEE (Flem R3 No. 15): Just guessing and hoping from the wide barrier. CASCABEL(Flem R4 No. 3): His form warrants a crack at this. HOT JOCKS Will show true colours: Chameleon looks well placed back against the fillies at Flemington today. MIDNIGHT OIL with TIM HABEL TRACK: Dead 4 PENETROMETER: 4.72 RAIL: True LAST MEETING: Out 19m June 27 LAST TIME TRUE: May 16 RAINFALL: 8.6mm for week IRRIGATION: 5mm for week RADAR: Showers 1 INTERESTING mix of babies with the best performed locals resuming, Gosford debut winner BLUZAR (2) and four unraced. MY GIRL HELEN (1) was impressive on debut at Caulfield over this trip and resuming again against fillies she is the measuring stick. SAN CRISTO- BEL (4) and GREEN MANGO (6) both won on debut and have placings behind smart Avenue and Essaouria. LONDON INK (3) and ORBITING BELLE (10) come to town after impressive provincial debut wins. ON PACERS: My Girl Helen, Bluzar, Orbiting Belle, Pointe Dancer. SWOOPERS: London Ink, San Cris- tobel, Green Mango, Orbiting Belle. SUGGESTED BET: My Girl Helen each-way. 2 BALLERINA GIRL (4) downed older horses when resuming at Sandown and freshened again looks well placed back to her own age despite a 4kg weight hike. BEL SHOES (3) has won her past two city starts. She makes her own luck racing on pace and will give a great sight again. READY TO PLEASE (1), SOL BRILLANTE (5), MOONAMBEAU (6), among others, can place. ON-PACERS: Secdolrue, Giotto, Lucky Shot. SWOOPERS: Ready To Please, Bel Shoes, Ballerina Girl, Sol Brillante, Moonambeau. DAMIEN Oliver momentarily snatched the lead from Craig Williams in the see-sawing battle for premiership honours with a double last Saturday. Oliver has seven rides today and is $7.50 to win the TAB Sportsbet Jockey Challenge and regain the outright lead in the premiership. THE MARKET $2.60 $5.75 $6.50 $7.00 $7.00 $7.50 $11.00 $16.00 Michael Rodd Brad Rawiller Peter Mertens Craig Williams Any other indiv. jockey Damien Oliver Craig Newitt Chris Symons SUGGESTED BET: Ballerina Girl straight out, quinellas 3, 4. 3 CHAMELEON (2) ran on strong- ly behind the smart Trustus last time and looks well placed back to fillies-only class over the extra 200m. ARMS WIDE OPEN (1) can be tardy away but is racing as though she is now looking for more ground. ROSE SYRAH (4) is rising to Satur- day grade but won a Sandown midweeker beating CUT AND RUN (10) who ran on well in the same race. ON PACERS: Bremmoly, Vitex. SWOOPERS: Arms Wide Open, Chameleon, Rose Syrah, Cut And Run. SUGGESTED BET: Chameleon straight out. 4 RED HUSTLER (2) came from last to win at Bendigo with 58kg and this should be truly run. RAIN IN AFRICA (1) did not go around a horse to win here last week for Damien Oliver. He rises 3kg but again draws in. PADDY O’REILLY (5) was one-paced at Bendigo when he didn’t get a lot of clear room in the straight and the blinkers go back on. He has always shown city potential. CASCABEL (3) and NO JURISDIC- TION (4) raced on-pace and were placed last week here in much improved runs on firmer ground. Cascabel did struggle to run out the 600m at his only previous try. ON-PACERS: Cascabel, No Jurisdic- tion. SWOOPERS: Rain In Africa, Red Hustler, Paddy O’Reilly, Slither. SUGGESTED BET: Red Hustler each-way. start and the 2500m is made to order. He has a win and a second to Ladies In Luck at his past two runs in this distance range here. The tricky horse to assess is the three-year-old AWIMOWEH (9). He’s most promis- ing but on trial at the trip and his 3kg claiming apprentice cannot use the allowance. HE’S SOMETHING (13) should have finished closer last week when he ran on well but he’s untested at 2500m. INKSTER (7) is a one- batter who needs a strongly run race. If in-form jumper HOOKER ROAD (8) runs them along as he can it will suit her. 5 ON-PACERS: Hooker Road. SWOOPERS: Diamondsondinside, Elmore, Grand Destiny, Inkster, Awi- moweh, Grizz, Spare A Dime, He’s Something. SUGGESTED BET: Elmore each- way. 6 THIS is a cracking edition of the Winter Championship Final. Very few are without a hope but work around RUBIJON (2), GOLD SALUTE (3), BENELLI (4) and DAVCON (5). Gold Salute has the outside draw but came from 14 to win a heat. He just needs some cover and has Oliver. His best 1600m run is a Sale Cup second to Electromotive. Benelli is likely to push forward from his wide draw. He’s versatile as he came from behind when a close-up THE BANKERS ON CLASS: CHAMELEON (Race 3 No. 2) ON PRECEDENT: GRAN SASSO (Race 7 No. 2) ON VIDEO: SWOOPER (Race 8 No. 6) $50 FLEXI QUADDIE FOR 26.04%: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13/ 2, 3, 4, 5/2, 6/6, 17 WIDE open race with ELMORE (2) well placed. He charged home late to win in Adelaide last second to Gold Salute at his previous run. Davcon should get a nice trail and is in peak form. Rubijon will come right into the race if more rain falls. He’s been working to the line nicely in 1400m races and is looking for the 1600m now. Versatile SAND SWEEPER (1), who makes his own luck, and DE MARS (10), who will be better suited coming from behind after leading last week, may be the best of the rest. ON-PACERS: Sand Sweeper, Bene- lli, Woodwin, Tictacs. SWOOPERS: Rubijon, Gold Salute, Davcon, De Mars. SUGGESTED BET: Gold Salute each-way. TANG (6). Gran Sasso has been a revelation since being gelded and hasn’t finished further back than a ¾len fourth in five straight runs. Midnight Mustang downed Gran Sas- so at level weights in May and gets a 3kg edge in weights after running third to the same horse a fortnight later. SHREWD RHYTHM (7) comes off two heavy track runs at the Valley and can improve on firmer ground. Place chances are consistent JEUNEYMAN (5) and speedy ALLIED FORCE (9). 7 ON-PACERS: Allied Force, Prospect. SWOOPERS: Gran Sasso, Jeuney- man, Midnight Mustang, Shrewd Rhythm. SUGGESTED BET: Exactas/quinel- las 2, 6. 8 SWOOPER (6) takes on open class here but can win despite the wide draw. She likes Fle- mington and should have won easily last start at Moonee Valley when she was shuffled out of the race. She’ll go forward as will stablemate BONINDI (9) who draws even wider. If he gets into the field the sole three-year-old PEACE TREATY (17) will be the one to beat. He should have won against his own age last week and will be swooping late. PACINO (4) ended a winning drought here last week and has claims again. SCENIC SCENE (5) handles all conditions but is much more effective in wet ground so monitor the track rating. The softer the better also for in-form mare BRITOMART (7) and last start Moon- ee Valley winner DE ARIAS (10). ON-PACERS: Swooper, Bonindi. SWOOPERS: Pacino, Scenic Scene, Britomart, De Arias, Peace Treaty. SUGGESTED BET: Swooper and Peace Treaty each-way.
