Form Analysis: Redcliffe Aug 24

RACE ONE

CHEAP TINT (8)
made the most of a front-line gate last start and was able to control the tempo after finding the lead from gate 4 to score a 5m victory over the AP mile. He was building towards that and was only 1m away the start prior. Trailing through to find position, he can go back-to-back.

CALCAVADO (10) spoiled a streak of 8 successive top 3 finishes last start when working hard in the run and fading to mid-field behind POMPIDOU last start. Into the claiming ranks for this run , he was 2.5m from the winner last time he took on claiming company. With the right cart into the contest he can feature.

IMA MORVEN LAD (2) held the pocket trail from gate 1 at AP 2 starts back and finished best to score a 1m victory. Buried in the run last start, he can look to be 1st to the pegs and have the options.

LONG ROAD TO FAME (4) was a passing lane winner here 2 starts back in a similar type claimer to score over this trip. Shuffled right back last start, he can look for position here and has a place chance.

SELECTIONS: CHEAP TINT (8), CALCAVADO (10), IMA MORVEN LAD (2), LONG ROAD TO FAME (4)
SUGGESTED BET: CHEAP TINT (8) to win

RACE TWO

THE IDES OF MARCH (5) shoots for the hat-trick and looks to have his campaign back on track after a first-up disappointment. He took them all the way to score by 14m over the 1780m trip here 2 starts back and running home a strong last panel and put them away nicely last start at AP. He looks the goods once again.

TOP FLIGHT CRUIZE (1) set an even tempo in front at AP last start over the 2138m trip and went down fighting when 3m from the winner. He took them all the way here 2 starts back over the 2280m trip and from the front here will be right in the fight.

IOWNATURBO (7) will enjoy the cosy trip and be coiled and ready for the snipers shot in the stretch. Runner-up her past 2 from 3 back the pegs, securing the pocket trail will suit and she will be charging.
 
COURAGEOUS LEO (9) did a mountain of work in the early stages last start when looking to get forward and the early burn told. Too good from gate 10 here 2 starts back, he can turn it around here.

SUGGESTED BET: THE IDES OF MARCH (5) to win

RACE THREE

LIFEINHEAVEN (1) was buried in the run after snagging back from gate 4 last start and worked home in good order to finish mid-field. That followed a tidy effort for 3rd behind TELL THE LINESMEN. With the speed to keep them wide, she can look to dictate.

HEAVENS HURRICANE (8) will strip fitter from his latest outing when returning from a break over the AP 2138m trip. Pressing ahead he found cover and the run had merit behind ARTFUL MAID. A strong winner 2 starts back prior to going for a break, he has 3 wins from 5 starts on the triangle.

MINI MIRACLE (4) pressed ahead from gate 5 to find the front here 2 starts back and once in control held on for a tidy win. A long way back last start she finished off strongly and won’t be far away here.

ELZBOY (7) should enjoy the perfect trip and can be ready to issue the closing shot. Too far back last start to issue a challenge, he is well suited from this gate.

SELECTIONS: LIFEINHEAVEN (1), HEAVENS HURRICANE (8), MINI MIRACLE (4), ELZBOY (7)
SUGGESTED BET: LIFEINHEAVEN (1) to win

RACE FOUR

SAMS A CHAMP (1)
pressed forward to take control from gate 3 in his heat of this series and once assuming control packed too many guns in running away for a 9m victory. That followed some tidy runs at AP from tough gates and with the options here can look to cap a great season on the triangle.

CULLEY BACKY (4) did the hard yards outside the leader BELLS BEACH HOUSE in his heat and went down fighting in 57.3 closing 800m split. That followed a handy effort at AP over the mile and with the right run in transit can look to finish over the top.

BELLS BEACH HOUSE (3) was 2nd up from a break in the heats here last week and once finding the front controlled the tempo including a slick 27.8 3rd panel in holding on for a 4m victory. If he can limit the early burn, he will give this a shake.

WESTERN BLAZE (8) does his best work when locked away on the pegs and saved for a closing shot. He looks to get conditions to suit here and with a strong tempo looking on offer, he will be probing for the runs

SELECTIONS: SAMS A CHAMP (1), CULLEY BACKY (4), BELLS BEACH HOUSE (3), WESTERN BLAZE (8)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-3-4-8

RACE FIVE

MAJOR GENERALJUJON (8) had plenty of luck in his heat when able to punch through to take up the running after the leader went off-stride at the 1st turn. Once able to assume control he was never in danger to score a 10m victory. Finding the line nicely 2 starts back, he can land an open contest.

DAPPER BESSIE (1) has good early speed and can look to capitalise on the good alley here. She worked home in good order in the heat run and 2 starts back fought hard to the line after getting very keen in front. Lighting the lamps here she will be gripping on in the stretch.
 
ITSMEGS (9) was only 4m from LAUGHING EMOJI 2 starts back when returning from a spell and then used the passing lane to score a tidy heat win. With 3 wins from 6 attempts here on the trinagle she will be charging late.

ADRIFT (6) did his share of work in the heat when cutting the breeze outside MAJOR GENERALJUJON and fighting hard to the line to hold 2nd. Runner-up his past 3 starts, he is right in the fight again.

SELECTIONS: MAJOR GENERALJUJON (8), DAPPER BESSIE (1), ITSMEGS (9), ADRIFT (6)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-6-8-9

RACE SIX

MUCH BETTOR (3)
makes his Aus debut for Ian Gurney and arrives a last start NZ winner at just his 2nd career start. He defeated the smart ESCALERA in that event who has since gone undefeated in 3 starts at AP. With a nice trial effort back on Jul 18 his last appearance, he can make a winning debut.

MAYWYN TOUGH (4) resumes from a spell and has changed stables since his 1st prep that returned a win and 2 placings from 2 outings. Last start in the Paleface Adios when trying to take them all the way and only 2m from the winner MISS MONEYBAGS, he will ask the questions in this.

AT RANDOM (7) was impressive on debut at AP last week and charged home strongly after being shuffled back along the pegs. In danger of being buried again here, he will have the added experience and can be charging again.

DATITUDE (2) was an all the way winner here 2 starts back at his 1st appearance and followed that with a half-head defeat at AP last time. He looks a handy type and can look for the pegs early and have the options.

SELECTIONS: MUCH BETTOR (3), MAYWYN TOUGH (4), AT RANDOM (7), DATITUDE (2)
SUGGESTED BET: MUCH BETTOR (3) to win

RACE SEVEN

SLICE OF HEAVEN (5) is airborne and despite a wide gate he looks to have the measure of his opponents. Pressing on to find the front last start over the 2138m, once in control he had them chasing in vain to score a 13m victory. A winner of 4 from 6 on the triangle, he should be too strong.

ROCK WITH SAM (4) takes on the Redcliffe track for just the 2nd time in his career. A qualifying winner 2 starts back when packing too many guns in front over the mile, he didn’t have the cleanest passage last start when 7m from CODE BAILEY. Settling handy he will be right in the fight.

MY MASTERCRAFTSMAN (7) will get options as the sole 2nd line runner to get away from the pegs if needed. Too good on the grass at Kilcoy last start he was 3rd in the Patrons Purse here 2 starts back. He can storm home late.

ILLAWONG DREAMTIME (2) has good early speed and can look to fire the 1st shot here. His last start had merit when working early and 2 back was 10m from CODE BAILEY. He won’t be far away.

SELECTIONS: SLICE OF HEAVEN (5), ROCK WITH SAM (4), MY MASTERCRAFTSMAN (7), ILLAWONG DREAMTIME (2)
SUGGESTED BET: SLICE OF HEAVEN (5) to win

RACE EIGHT

SONNY SAVEAO (8)
has claimed the bronze in each of 4 appearances since returning from a spell, the latest when only beaten a head behind JUST JOSHIN. 2 starts back he tracked into the race strongly and was only a neck away from the winner. This looks a winnable race and his to take.

WERELIVINGTHEDREAM (1) struck trouble last start before being sent forward and doing her share of work in the run. A winner at AP 5 starts back when taking them all the way from gate 2, she went within a head of victory at her next start. From the gate she gets her chance.

TAP IT IN (4) has been freshened since his last run when working hard throughout and sticking on gamely. Only 6m from the winner 2 back from gate 5, he can issue a challenge in this.

JUST ROKIN (6) is on the one-day back-up after competing at AP on Thurs. Her run 2 back behind COREY WILLIAM was a tidy effort and despite the gate she can be in the mix.

SELECTIONS: SONNY SAVEAO (8), WERELIVINGTHEDREAM (1), TAP IT IN (4), JUST ROKIN (6)
SUGGESTED BET: SONNY SAVEAO (8) to win
