LOBSTER FALLS is one of the leading chances to deliver the goods, when he resumes from a lengthy spell in today’s eight heats of the Carlton Draught Classic (452m) at the Devonport Showgrounds.

The son of Fabregas and Another Request has drawn box eight in the sixth heat which is race eight and only needs to begin cleanly to clinch his third win on the U-turn track in the final leg of the Quadrella.

The Joshua Wright-trained Lobster Falls has not greeted the judge since his last victory at Hobart back in December over the 461 metres, successfully running it in 26.31 seconds from box five.

Lobster Falls was being spelled for two months, after his form had tapered off during the Launceston Cup back in February, running seventh in the Launceston Cup Consolation behind Bobby Bound.

Lobster Falls faces moderate opposition in today’s assignment with the Andrea McConnon-prepared Bunny Boy (box three), coming off a fourth-place effort in last Thursday night’s Luxbet Easter Cup behind Stylish Nic at Hobart looming as a major threat.

The son of Talk’s Cheap has limited success in Devonport, having only the one win from eight starts beating Maywyn Never by 1 ½ lengths back in February running 26.03 seconds from box one.

Robin Grubb’s Halo Henry (box six) and the Anthony Bullock prepared Jack’s Missile (box four) are runners that should also be considered in punters’ first four and trifecta investments.

Winners of each of the eight heats will progress through to the final held on April 25.

The first of 10-races on today’s meeting is set to jump at 12.10pm.
