GLOBE DERBY PARK - SATURDAY 19TH FEBRUARY 2022
Race 1: TAB LIVE SKY RACING VISION CLAIMING PACE
CHARMING MAJOR (3) was a winner three starts back defeating STAR WRITER by 1.9 metres from gate four. He gets a very similar draw tonight against a similar field. He will be right in the finish if at his best.
LITTLE RASCAL (5) is stepping down in class and poses a major threat tonight.
STAR WRITER (2) and BREACH THE BEACH (8) are also chances.
Race 2: STAY COVID SAFE PACE
CRUISING BELLEW (3) has been knocking on the door to win a race recently. He ran second behind HILLTOP BREEZE last week beaten by 4.9 metres. He looks like a major chance tonight.
SOHO BOB (5), FINAL ROUND (8) and VAPAR JACK (1) are also chances.
Race 3: SAHRC VOLUNTEERS PACE
WHISTLE ON BY (2) is racing in career best form at the moment. She has won three of his last four starts defeating SUTTER MAN by 11.3 metres last start. Tonight’s race looks a little tougher but her recent form suggests she is good enough to win.
LEVI JIMMY (1), EASY ROLLING (8) and BETTOR BEONTOIT (7) look the next best.
Race 4: 2022 VALLEY HORSE TRANSPORT GRAMEL TROTTERS CUP
SCRUFFY DOOLAN (8) returns from a spell after a super preparation last time in. He hasn’t been seen at the trials but if anywhere near his best form tonight he is going to be a major winning chance.
GODOFTHUNDER (10) returns to SA after a successful run of form in Queensland. If he is anywhere near his best, will be right in the finish.
BLUE COMAN (7) is incredibly risky but will be a major threat tonight if he can bring his best form.
MIRACLE RISING (11) looks the next best.
Race 5: 2022 GLOBE DERBY FODDER ITALIAN CUP
JIMMY MACK (8) has a tough draw tonight but he keeps finding ways to win races. He is a major chance tonight if he brings his best run.
HEZACROCWATCHER (6), ZADAKA (4) and WRANGLER (5) are also chances.
Race 6: SAHRC DERBY
JAWSOFLINCOLN (6) returns from a two month spell. His form towards the end of his last preparation wasn’t his best form. If he can bring his best form tonight and show his old gate speed, he will be a major chance.
IM THEMIGHTYLUCY (3) was impressive in a trial on Monday. She is a threat tonight.
EVER HOPING (2) and IDEAL MELODY (5) are also chances.
Race 7: TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY PACE
BIEN HOA (3) ran a strong race behind GIANT JACKSON first up from a spell last week. He should be able to move into a forward position early and run a strong race against this field.
ABOVE AVERAGE (1) will appreciate the inside draw and run a strong race if he is at his best. He can be very inconsistent though.
THEBATTLESJUSBEGUN (8) and ROCKING WITH CHARM (5) are also chances.
Race 8: SAHRC MEMBERS TROTTERS MOBILE
SUPER ANGUS (1) hasn’t had a lot of luck over his last three starts. Tonight he returns to a mobile start which will suit him. He also gets the benefit of gate one and will be a major threat.

Race 2: JOHN ROTHE VIDEO PACE
CAPTAIN THUNDERBOLT (3) was a last start winner defeating IMA WORKINCLASSMAN by 12 metres. He should be able to find the lead and will be hard to run down if he can repeat last weeks run.

STARTUP (4) and LETS GO THERE (5) are also chances.
Race 3: TAB MAKE A DATE WITH PLAY PACE

Race 4: HYGAIN TROTTERS HANDICAP

IMASOCIALBUTTERFLY (1) joins the Aaron Bain stable with no local trials to speak of. She must be respected against this field.
LIBERTY SONG (7) and STRAWBERRY MOUSE (4) are also chances.
Race 5: JUST WRECKING TOYOTAS PACE
FOREVER BETTOR (5) joins the Dean Girardi stable and matches up really well against this field. If he can bring his best form he will be a major threat.

MISTER CHEESE (8) and LENNY TEE (7) are also chances.
Race 6: ROCK N ROLL WORLD USA PACE
ROYAL CADENCE (1) was a winner two starts ago at Mildura. Her recent Victorian form has been consistent. She will get a nice run through from the inside draw. She is a strong chance.
TOLD YOU TWICE (5) has been knocking on the door for a win since coming to SA. He will be coming home strongly over the concluding stages of the race.
SUNFINE (3) and GROWLERS LAST (4) look the next best.
Race 7: TAB VENUE MODE PACE
ROSIANO (4) has been edging closer to a win recently. She was beaten by 1.5 metres last start behind MAKE HASTE at Port Pirie. Will be a strong chance today if she can repeat that run against this field.
