Globe Derby Park - Saturday 16th May 2020
Overview of meeting:
Race 1: TAB BET ONLINE PACE
DONT TELL WILLIAM (8) looks ready to win again. This is his fourth run back from a spell and a slight drop down in class compared to his recent starts. He was only beaten 1.6 meters behind the in form BETTORHAVTIME last week and should be able to lob into a nice position off the second row and is a major winning chance.
RONZEL GRINNER (2) has been racing in some strong form recently. He was only beaten by a head behind GLENRAE HANOVER last week. Looks the likely leader tonight and he will be right in the mix.
FOR THE CORZ (3) has been hard to fault recently. She has won 2 from her last 4 and was only beaten a half head in her most recent run behind AH LA VITESSE. She will be around the mark again tonight.
DONT TELL ALICE (4), KARMIC FIRE (5), POCKET THEDEAL (6) and ACE TO PLAY (1) are all chances in what appears to be a very even race.
Race 2: JOHN ROTHE VIDEO PACE
JUST CAPPY (8) found it tough last week after sitting outside the leader for the entire race and ended up getting beaten by a half head behind MARTYS PARTY. He will lob into a nice position off the second row tonight. He is a class horse and he should be able to bounce back after last week.
CHANGEUP (1) was a winner at big odds last week after he led all the way to defeat MISS PEGGY ONEILL by 4.3 meters. Looks the likely leader again tonight and should be right in the mix.
LOMA JACCKA (5) looks ready to win again after finishing third behind SIR LUCAS and HESASHARK last start. She will find it a little tricky from the draw but is a strong winning chance against this field.
IMTELLINYA (3) and ONE NIGHT AT THEMILE (6) are both each way chances.
Race 3: TAB PACE
SIR ROMAN (1) returned to the winners list last start when he defeated SIR LUCAS by 10.2 meter and will be tough to beat again tonight from the inside draw.
MASONJON (8) has been in some very impressive form over the last 2 months. He has won 2 and has been placed 3 times from his last 5 starts. He is worth consideration again tonight.
AH LA VITESSE (2) has won 2 of her last 3. She is also worth consideration along with THE OCTAGON (3).
Race 4: HYGAIN MICRSPEED PACE
KENTSFORD KENNY (8) has been racing in some strong form recently. He was a strong winner last week when he defeated CELESTIAL DAYBREAK by 7.3 meters. If he can get the right run into the race he should be able to hit the line well.
IM THE MIGHTY JUDD (4) was a winner last start after defeating MAGIC TRUMP by 2.9 meters. Looks the likely leader and should be right in the mix again tonight.
BIEN HOA (6), SIR SPOKESY (3) and MANLY MACH (1) are also chances.
Race 5: VALE DICK WHITE TROTTERS HANDICAP
A decent field has been assembled for the trotters race.
GOODTIME PE RABBIT (7) can do things wrong but when he trots cleanly is a very handy trotter. He was a winner 2 starts back when he defeated MIZURRI by 15.5 meters. If on his best behaviour tonight he will be tough to beat.
BLUE SPARKLER (8) was only beaten 10.7 meters in his most recent run after hitting the line extremely well after beginning off a 50 meter handicap. He comes back to the 30 meter handicap tonight and should be in the mix if he repeats his most recent effort.
KYVALLEY KID (3) and HOPPERS DREAMH (1) look the next best.
Race 6: SA BOTRA MEMBERS PACERS DISCRETIONARY
BETTORHAVTIME (6) looks a class above here. He is going for 6 wins a row tonight. He does have the 30 meter handicap to overcome but that shouldn’t phase him. He will be very tough to beat.
FUTURIST (3), OH I AM THE ONE (2) and ROBERT THE BRUCE (4) look the next best.
Race 7: ARCLIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY MARES PACE
ILLAWONG GERRY (6) was impressive last week after running second behind the in form UNCLE LEO. He was only beaten by 4.7 meters and a repeat of that run will see him feature tonight.
BELLA SOFIA (1) looks well suited from the inside draw. Looks the likely leader and she does have the ability to take this out.
PROMISE AT DAWN (3) and JO JO DREAMING (5) look the next best.
