Craig Rail's Preview for Kilmore

Thu, 23 May 2019

The first heat of the Victorian Square Trotters Association Trotters Handicap highlights the program of nine races at Kilmore. The former New Zealand trotter Mass Destruction is sure to create plenty of interest. The open class and "group" performing trotters Father Christmas and Big Jack Hammer gave him 40m start from behind the tapes but it was still a stunning trial victory last week. He held them safely at bay and seemingly had something in reserve. The main dangers appear to be Rosanna Lindy, which has also trialled well recently, Sun Body, Meziah and Chrisken Kiosk.

Craig Rail Tips - All Races

R1

Selections No.BETTA BOPPER (11), ROSSINI (6), EXPLICIT CASTLE (7), BETTOR B NICE (8)
Suggested Bet No.BETTA BOPPER (11) to win$*
OVERVIEW: BETTA BOPPER (11) galloped in the score up and was tailed off throughout at Ballarat. Her prior form was outstanding including a victory in a strong C1 Final at Melton so she is worth another chance. ROSSINI (6) has been sparingly raced but he has ability and will take beating if he is somewhere near his peak. He competed in the VHRSC Sires Classic two starts back then appreciated a drop back in class at his latest Shepparton victory. EXPLICIT CASTLE (7) had excuses at Ballarat as he worked hard early and the mile rate was a slick 1.54.5. He beat a slightly easier field at Geelong two starts back and he is capable of running a good race despite the poor draw. ACE DUIGAN (2) didn’t run a bad race after doing plenty of work at Bendigo. He has some claims along with BETTOR B NICE (8) and OH MY GOODNESS (10).

EARLY SPEED: 2 (possible leader), 4,5,7

RATINGS: 6,11/ 7/ 2,8/ 10/ 9

R2

Selections No.HECS ELECT (1), HIDDEN FIGURE (2), ILLAWONG ASTRO (6), ALLFIREDUP (5)
Suggested Bet No.HECS ELECT (1) each way$*
OVERVIEW: HECS ELECT (1) did plenty of work mid-race and battled on bravely for third behind the smart filly Elegant Jewel at Bendigo. She has the fast beginner and last start winner HIDDEN FIGURE (2) drawn on her outside so she should receive every chance via the sprint lane. HIDDEN FIGURE (2) beat a much easier field at Bendigo last outing but she ran handy time and she is a chance again. ILLAWONG ASTRO (6) took on a reasonable field and didn’t do a bad job when fourth at Ballarat last outing. She possesses early speed and should give a forward showing under these conditions. ALLFIREDUP (5) has had a few chances since coming from New South Wales but she ran a reasonable race at Bendigo last outing and is not without a place chance.

EARLY SPEED: 2 (likely leader), 6

RATINGS: 1/ 2,6/ 3,5/ 4,7

R3

Selections No.VAN SANK (5), DIZZYSJET (3), KYVALLEY SENATOR (4), DARK CLOUD (6)
Suggested Bet No.VAN SANK (5) to win$*
OVERVIEW: VAN SANK (5) (Trixton) has shaped up nicely in several trial performances, the latest at Melton where he ran along at a genuine tempo and kept on extending his lead. He is a smart type and should give a big showing on debut. DIZZYSJET (3) (Quaker Jet) finished off well to snare victory at her latest Shepparton trial performance. She is a nicely bred filly and is drawn to go well. KYVALLEY SENATOR (4) (Muscle Hill) finished third behind the subsequent winner Dreamee at his latest Kilmore trial performance and is not to be underestimated. STICK WITH ME (1) is worth thought from the pole position and DARK CLOUD (6) (Angus Hall) has also performed well enough at the trials to warrant respect.

EARLY SPEED: 5 (possible leader), 2

RATINGS: 5/ 3,4/ 1,6/ 2/ 7,8

R4

Selections No.ELENNA (3), WHITEHAVEN LASS (2), FATHER CHRISTMAS (4), TANABI FALCON (6)
Suggested Bet No.ELENNA (3) each way$*
OVERVIEW: It is a small field but it is an intriguing affair with several winning chances. ELENNA (3) worked to the front and scored under similar conditions at Shepparton on April 14 and was placed in handy time at Bendigo last outing so she should give a forward showing. WHITEHAVEN LASS (2) wanted to hang badly for the entire race and performed below expectations at Ballarat last outing. She sprinted sharply to win at Melton on April 03 and she is much better than her latest run suggests. FATHER CHRISTMAS (4) is an open class trotter taking on the maiden pacers. He came from a handicap of 40m when second in a Kilmore trial last week and he has the ability to be competitive against this class. TANABI FALCON (6) is improving with every start and boxed on bravely for second at Cranbourne last outing. The barrier draw is a disadvantage but he is ready to break through for a win against this class.

EARLY SPEED: 3 (possible leader), 2,6

RATINGS: 2,3/ 4,6/ 1,5

R5

Selections No.OUR JIMMIE (3), JEAN LUC (4), THE LOUSTAR (8), HEZATOFF (9)
Suggested Bet No.OUR JIMMIE (3) to win$*
OVERVIEW: OUR JIMMIE (3) is racing in great form with a second behind the classy pacer Ana Malik followed by a victory at Cranbourne where he showed great acceleration at the finish. He looms as one of the leading chances again. JEAN LUC (4) began brilliantly to lead and set up a hectic speed when unplaced at Melton last week. He is dropping back from metropolitan level and he should give this a shake. THE LOUSTAR (8) was left stranded without cover and kicked on well for second at Terang. He is racing at his peak and is a winning chance if he gains the right luck from the awkward draw. HEZATOFF (9) continues to race consistently against similar grade and is worth a ticket each way. SHESA TRICKY BRIDGE (1) and GONE TOO FAR (2) both have enough ability to be worth consideration from their good draw.

EARLY SPEED: 4 (likely leader), 1,2

RATINGS: 3,4/ 8/ 2,9/ 1

R6

Selections No.SASSYOLA (3), OUR MASTER GEORGE (11), AURORE (5), DANGEROUS WOMEN (2)
Suggested Bet No.SASSYOLA (3) to win$*
OVERVIEW: SASSYOLA (3) raced without cover and appeared to be beaten on the home turn but lifted in the straight to win at Horsham then followed with victory in a heat of this series. She hasn’t finished further back than fourth in ten starts since resuming and she will give another forward showing here. OUR MASTER GEORGE (11) has endured a tough run at his past two placed efforts and recorded a victory in fast time at Mildura prior so he cannot be discarded. AURORE (5) is an honest mare and boasts a consistent record at Kilmore. She has claims along with DANGEROUS WOMEN (2), REBECCAS ART (7) and DISTINCTIVE DEL (8).

EARLY SPEED: 1 (likely early leader), 3,4,5,7

RATINGS: 3/ 11/ 2,5,7/ 1,8

R7

Selections No.MASS DESTRUCTION (7), ROSANNA LINDY (3), MEZIAH (6), SHOWEMYOURMUSCLES (1)
Suggested Bet No.MASS DESTRUCTION (7) to win$*
OVERVIEW: MASS DESTRUCTION (7) is a former New Zealand trotter that joins trainer Brent Lilley. He couldn’t have been more impressive when defeating the open class trotters Father Christmas and Big Jack Hammer at a Kilmore trial victory last week so he must be respected. ROSANNA LINDY (3) is resuming since November but she has also performed well at the trials. She rattled home for second behind Left Right Andcentre at her latest trial effort so she appears to be a winning chance. MEZIAH (6) has won three of his past five starts and broke stride when leading on the home turn at his latest ninth. He is a versatile trotter and he is capable of bouncing back into winning form. SHOWEMYOURMUSCLES (1) makes his debut for trainer Chris Romanidis and has shown some speed in several recent trial performances. SUN BODY (4), CHEVALS RACER (5) and CHRISKEN KIOSK (8) are all worth thought in a quality race for the trotters.

EARLY SPEED: 1 (possible leader), 2, 5 (10m), 6 (10m)

RATINGS: 7/ 3,6/ 1,5,8/ 4

R8

Selections No.JUSTICE SERVED (1), TIN ROOF RAIDER (2), JIMMY LOCKE (3), KOTARE MAHDI (6)
Suggested Bet No.JUSTICE SERVED (1) to win$*
OVERVIEW: JUSTICE SERVED (1) led and tired over the longer trip at Geelong last outing but his previous two victories were in slick mile rates of 1.54.7 and 1.54.1. He should be in front for a long way over the sprint distance. TIN ROOF RAIDER (2) raced wide in the final circuit and did well to finish fourth at Shepparton last outing. He is much better drawn for this assignment and he should prove hard to beat via the sprint lane. JIMMY LOCKE (3) has returned to his best form with victories in both the heat and the final of a C1 series. This race is tougher but he should go well again. KOTARE MAHDI (6) was shuffled back on the markers from the second row and he motored to the line when an eye-catching seventh (9m) at metropolitan level on Saturday night. He has the three main chances drawn on his inside but he performed too well on the weekend to dismiss.

EARLY SPEED: 1 (likely leader), 2,3/ 6/ 4/ 5,7

RATINGS: 1/ 2/ 3,6/ 4/ 5,7

R9

Selections No.JAKARRAS ACE (6), LOVEISAMYTH (5), LIGHTING COLONY (4), SONDEL (3)
Suggested Bet No.JAKARRAS ACE (6) to win$*
OVERVIEW: JAKARRAS ACE (6) is better than his past two efforts suggests and his third at Warragul on March 18 was very strong. He meets a suitable assignment now so he can return to winning form. LOVEISAMYTH (5) is yet to win in sixteen starts for the season but his record in the claiming grade is sound. He is tough enough to overcome the awkward barrier draw. LIGHTING COLONY (4) dropped out at his latest Kilmore tenth but it was a very wet track. His prior efforts were sound including a Kilmore victory so he is worth another chance. SONDEL (3) will appreciate racing against the claiming class and is a place chance from the good draw.

EARLY SPEED: 2 (possible leader), 1,3,5,6

RATINGS: 6/ 5/ 4/ 2,3/ 1
