Devonport 25th May 2015
RACE 1 : This is a pretty tough CO/C1 to start the night. LAST GUY STANDING (2) has been freshened up since his last run and he gets into a winnable race here. He should settle handy so is going to take plenty of holding out. BADTOTHEBONE (1) draws ideally to run a much improved race. He should be able to hold so will give plenty of cheek. RUBY DAWN (7) has a good trailing draw so can be dangerous at odds. MUSTANG MINTY (3) was better last time so from the handy draw is a must include. LORD CYRIOLI (4) and VIEW STREET (6) are next best.
TOP PICK : LAST GUY STANDING (2) looks hard to beat here.
DANGERS : BADTOTHEBONE (1) will be a danger along with RUBY DAWN (7).
ROUGHIE : MUSTANG MINTY (3) will run a race at odds.
RATINGS : 2 – 1 3 7 – 4 6 – 5 8 9 10
RACE 2 : This is a very good C2/C3 with plenty of chances. RAMPLESTILTSKIN (8) won well here last time and draws to get a good run through. He will look to make a midrace move so if finds the breeze first will be the hardest to beat. ANOTHER JASPER (7) never got a crack at them last week. He is racing well but will be relying on luck but if he gets it can win. CASCADE FLYER (9) is a very tough one paced type who will be looking to get around them early and if does will be a major player. HOLME ON THE BAYOU (10) is in career best form but draws poorly here so that may have out pay to his winning chances. LIVIA DEGEROLSTEIN (1) has drawn to run a much improved race here at odds so is a must include for the exotics.
TOP PICK : RAMPLESTILTSKIN (8) will be hard to beat.
DANGERS : ANOTHER JASPER (7) will be the danger along with CASCADE FLYER (9).
ROUGHIE : LIVIA DEGEROLSTEIN (1) will run a race at odds.
RATINGS : 8 – 7 9 10 – 1 – 2 3 4 5 6
RACE 3 : This is another heat of the 6ty Youngbloods. TIZ A JAMANE (2) is a very handy three year old resuming. He draws ideally so should be able to find the top so will be the hardest to beat. CEMENTO RAPIDO (4) has been racing well so looks the danger if there is one. NOTONASUNDAY (3) resumes here and has been thereabouts at most of his runs so is a must for the exotics. ACEY BOY (5) and INNER CITY (7) are both capable of filling a minor place with the right runs. HIGH CLASS MADAM (6) is a first starter who will pay to keep safe.
TOP PICK : TIZ A JAMANE (2) is the hardest to beat.
DANGERS : CEMENTO RAPIDO (4) will be the danger.
ROUGHIE : NOTONASUNDAY (3) can run a race at odds.
RATINGS : 2 – 4 – 3 5 6 7 – 1
RACE 4 : This is a stand start for the two year olds. TWENTYTHREERED (3) battled away well in a much stronger race than this last week. She will take plenty of beating with a safe beginning. KARALTA BOOMER (7) is always thereabouts and is very close to a win. He will get his chance being the lone of the back row. KHUDZENSKA LEIS (4) is a well related youngster on debut so will pay to keep very safe. TAMBROS MILLY (2) just forget her last run. She will need to begin safely and if she does will be a player here. ITS GEMMAS DELIGHT (1) and GOINSENIAL (5) are sure to be improved by their first runs so are a must for the exotics.
TOP PICK : TWENTYTHREERED (3) looks a good gamble.
DANGERS : KARALTA BOOMER (7) will be a danger along with TAMBROS MILLY (2).
ROUGHIE : KHUDZENSKA LEIS (4) can run a race on debut.
RATINGS : 3 – 2 7 – 1 4 5 – 6
RACE 5 : This is another heat of the 6ty Youngbloods. CHIRAC (10) is by far and away the class runner here but has to overcome the poor draw. He comes off two very good seconds in tougher company than this so with average luck is the one to beat. KAMILI (2) has really turned the corner of late and draws well here so will be a danger. STAREESHAR (1) draws well and will be looking at holding up so will give some cheek at odds. TOUCHWOOD TEEKSTA (7) gets the run he likes so if gets a crack at them will be dangerous. ODINS CALL GIRL (8) and RAINBOW PHOENIX (9) are both racing well but will need to get a good run through here to be in the finish. FOREVER ARMA (3) and BERTILS BLISS (4) are next best.
TOP PICK : CHIRAC (10) is clearly the one to beat.
DANGERS : KAMILI (2) will be a danger along with ODINS CALL GIRL (8).
ROUGHIE : FOREVER ARMA (3) can run a race at odds.
RATINGS : 10 – 2 7 8 9 – 1 3 4 – 5 6
RACE 6 : This is a 3CO/3C1. FUNDAMENTALIST (1) gets his chance here to finally breakthrough from the ideal draw. He will be hoping to hold up so from there will be the hardest to beat. ONE MANS PASS (6) does have ability but has drawn the top of the track so will a bit of luck in the run but is still the danger. PUNTER KARALTA (3) does have gate speed so I’m sure they will have a crack at the lead so is a must for the exotics. MASTER PAIGE (5) won well last start when was able to lead throughout. He draws a bit wide here so place looks best. BE GOOD FRANKLIN (2) and LAUGHYAHEADOFF (7) are a must for the multiples at odds.
TOP PICK : FUNDAMENTALIST (1) is the hardest to beat.
DANGERS : ONE MANS PASS (6) is the danger along with LAUGHYAHEADOFF (7).
ROUGHIE : PUNTER KARALTA (3) if found the top has a hope.
RATINGS : 1 – 6 – 2 3 5 7 – 4
RACE 7 : This is a C4/C5. ROBYN SCHERBOTSKY (1) is very well placed from the pole as she will be able to hold up so then from there will take plenty of running down. NEONJET (4) is a tough type who will no doubt keep the pressure on all the way so is the danger along with HES MAGIC RED (2) who will get the gun run behind the leader. BERTILS DELIGHT (3) should lob one by one so with a solid tempo could get over the top of them at odds. POKER STORM (5) and DELIVERTHEGOODS (6) are next best.
TOP PICK : ROBYN SCHERBOTSKY (1) is the one to beat.
DANGERS : NEONJET (4) is the danger along HES MAGIC RED (2).
ROUGHIE : BERTILS DELIGHT (3) can win at odds.
RATINGS : 1 – 2 4 – 3 – 5 6
RACE 8 : This is the last of the night. PACIFIC SOUL (1) won well last week then was claimed into the stable of Roger Brown who has a great record with the claimers. He should be able to ping to the lead so will take running down. GIVITANAME (2) well suited here off the front mark so is sure to be a danger. WASHIES CHANCE (8) got very close two runs back here when came from last. He will need a similar effort here and can win. MELPARK MAESTRO (7) is well up to this at his best so will need to be kept very safe. BABYITSU (4) and JOHNNYACE (5) are next best.
TOP PICK : PACIFIC SOUL (1) is the hardest to beat.
DANGERS : GIVITANAME (2) is a danger along with WASHIES CHANCE (8).
