Meeting Dashboard – Hobart, Sunday 16 July

Luxbet Park Hobart hosts a 7-event meeting on Sunday and Karalta Kruise will be out to make it a hat-trick of wins in the opening event after winning two penalty-free races at his past two starts.


This is a race for the three-year-olds to kick off the night’s racing. KARALTA KRUISE (2) has really turned the corner of late and looks set to make a winning hat-trick. He draws ideally to zoom to the top and will dictate from there so whatever beats him will be winning. LYNNIEMACH (10) was heavily supported last week but I’m not sure why. She is a shadow of herself from her two-year-old days but will be better driven with a sit so if saved up for one run at them can figure as this is easier than her latest effort. VAPAR GLENN (8) got all the favours when winning first up in the State for Kate MacLeod and gets into a winnable race from an identical draw so has to be kept safe. ENTREEMAINDESSERT (3) was much better last time when driven with a sit. He draws to settle handy tonight and as long as gets a bit of cover will be dangerous. STRIKER JIM (5) and REALLY FRANK (6) are both racing consistently and with a touch of luck from there wide draws have to be included at double figure odds. ABS BOY (7), THE VILLAGE SNEAK (9) and CARLAS HEAVEN (11) are next best.

TOP PICK: KARALTA KRUISE (2) is the one to beat.

DANGERS: ENTREEMAINDESSERT (3) is the danger along with LYNNIEMACH (7).

ROUGHIE: REALLY FRANK (6) will run a race at odds.

RATINGS: 2 – 3 8 10 – 5 6 – 4 7 9 11 – 1

This is for the C1 class performers. WILLIAMTELL (9) is looking to make it three out of his last four. He draws to get a good run through early so if he can be held up for one run at them will take plenty of beating. ULTIMATE COURAGE (1) has his chance last start when running third. He comes up with the pole tonight so should hold up early and can go better in front so keep very safe. UNION FORCE (2) will more than likely hold the breeze and look to dictate from there so can hold on for a place at odds. LOCKAWAY KACIE (11) is racing well from bad draws and that doesn’t change here but if somehow she can get a cart into the race look for her to finish strongly at odds. SU YOU TOO (7) was driven when winning first up last week off a lengthy break. He will only be better for that run so has to be kept safe despite the wide draw. ARK BREEZE (3), MASTER CHARLIE (5), FLASH ANATOMY (6), WITCH MASTER (8), FLYLIKA HAWK (10) and REGAL MAJOR (13) all have to be included for the exotic punters as do have enough ability.

TOP PICK: WILLIAMTELL (9) is the hardest to beat.

DANGERS: ULTIMATE COURAGE (1) draws to be a danger along with LOCKAWAY KACIE (11).

ROUGHIE: WITCH MASTER (8) gets the draw to run a race at odds.

RACE 3: 18:12pm LUXBET.COM PACE 2090M

This is for the C2 class pacers in a very open race. SMILIN GEOFF (12) was very impressive resuming leading throughout. He goes back to the second line but with that run under his belt he can still win with the likelihood of a solid tempo up front. COUTA ROCKS (3) had no chance last start after being trapped the wide the trip. He draws to either find the top or the breeze early so is sure to be thereabouts. ONEMORELAUGH (2) is in a similar vote as he gets his best draw for a while and at his best can win. KVITOVA LEIS (1) draws the pole and will get a soft trip behind the leader so if he gets a crack at them can get over the top of them. OLWEN JACCKA (13) resumes from a let-up from a horror draw. She is a mare that does have ability so if gets the right trip can be dangerous. WHENTEHGROUNDSHOOK (7) was driven a treat when an impressive winner last week. She will a similar trip here and can be in the finish if gets it. CHESIRE CAT (4), ARTARAMA (5), BOLTNMACH (8), LORD JONES (9), ORIGIN BILLY (10) and CAPTURE ME (11) are all capable of running into a place at odds.

TOP PICK: SMILIN GEOFF (12) just leaning his way in a tough race.

DANGERS: ONEMORELAUGH (2) draws to be a danger along with COUTA ROCKS (3).

ROUGHIE: KVITOVA LEIS (1) will run a race at odds.

This is for the C3-C4 performers. EBONYALLSTARZZZ (2) is a mare that races best on the speed and is suited by the short trip. She will get across the pole marker early and then should get a pretty good half which will enable her to run a good last 800m so is sure to take plenty of running down. CHRISTIAN JAZ (9) is in career best form and will get a good run through early so will be close enough to be a danger at the business end. OUR PERCIUS (1) is no star but super consistent and he gets the draw tonight to be dangerous if gets a crack at them late. TIMELY SOVEREIGN (11) is racing but will have to overcome the extreme back row draw but if Johnny Walters can get his close enough look for him to be hitting the line strongly. CALL HER JULIE (7) got a well deserved win last week. She is racing in great heart and with a touch of luck can be dangerous. KWIATKOWSKI (5) was ok last week and he does race best on the speed so if he can push forward early and find a spot is one at odds that can give a sight. IM FULL TILT (3), PUSHKIN (4), SEENOHEARNOSPEAKNO (6), THATSWHATSHESAID (8) and LA EBONY KITA (10) are all more than capable with the right trips so are a must include for the exotic players.

TOP PICK: EBONYALLSTARZZZ (2) is the hardest to beat from the draw.

DANGERS: CHRISTIAN JAZ (9) is flying so is the danger along with OUR PERCIUS (1).

ROUGHIE: KWIATKOWSKI (5) can run a race at odds.

This is a stand start claimer where Ben Yole has seven out of the eight runners so it’s fair to say that one of them will be winning. WASHIES CHANCE (6) has made the claimers his own of late. He is well placed off the 10m mark so as long as he steps he will be the hardest to beat. JUKEBOX MUSIC (3) is much better off the front row so looks well placed here as he can ping the tapes so will be a major player. REGAL STRIDE (1) was much better last week. He can be hit and miss from the tapes but if he pinged on top can give them something to chase. REGAL EAGLE (2) has been thereabouts since arriving in Tasmania and he gets into a winnable race tonight so keep safe. WILLIAMLEE (7) is back with Clayton Miller and has been ok of late so if he was able to begin safely he can run a race at odds. JEANS MATTJESTY (8) will find this much easier than recent runs but has to come off the 30m mark but is not without some hope. WRONGLY ACCUSED (5) also showed a return to form last week so can figure at odds along with YAHOLYTERROR (4) to a lesser extent.

TOP PICK: WASHIES CHANCE (6) is the hardest to beat.

DANGERS: JUKEBOX MUSIC (3) is a danger along with REGAL EAGLE (2).

ROUGHIE: REGAL STRIDE (1) can run a race at odds if begins safely.

This is the Belmont Final for the maiden two-year-old fillies. CLASS TELLS (3) has run some handy placings behind some of our better youngsters s will appreciate getting back into a race of this nature. She has shown enough speed to push and settle handy so will be close to be a player. TWENTY TWO KARAT (4) raced in the prelude and final of the recent Sire Stakes Series and didn’t disgrace herself. She will find this much easier and draws well so is sure to take plenty of beating. BEATRIX LYN (7) brings similar form as the above two but draws the top of the track so a place looks best. MOLLY MALONES (1) is an improving type who draws to advantage so if she can kick up early she will take some running down. There are three debutantes with the first DLITEFUL CENTURIAN (2) from the Kent Rattray stable. She has trialled fairly so if she can settle handy can run a place. BETTERTHANLIFE (5) is a first starter from the Todd Rattray stable who has trialled up well for her debut so will pay to watch the market. BOUQUET OF ROSES (6) is from the Paul Hill stable so has to be respected as we all know his record with youngsters over recent years.

TOP PICK: TWENTY TWO KARAT (4) will be hard to beat.

DANGERS: CLASS TELLS (3) is a danger along with MOLLY MALONES (1).

ROUGHIE: BOUQUET OF ROSES (6) will give a sight on debut.

This is a C5-C7 to finish off the night with six runners with all runners have some chance. JIVIN CULLEN (6) was a handy winner at first local run when got the gun run. He goes to outside the front row so will find this a bit tougher but he should be open to improvement so will pay to keep very safe. BAYRIDGE BILL (3) can run the gate hard and will go close to getting across early and if he did it will be whether he holds or take a sit as he will cop pressure but is still a chance either way. POKER STORM (5) is an underrated type who has been a good horse all the way through his career so if he is ready and with the right trip will be in the finish. MODERN CHIC (1) is a tough type who is well up to winning this but I think she will get crossed early so then will need to make her own luck but she can. SHAKTI BROMAC (2) and SUTTER MAN (4) are both very capable so if they bring their best form they will be thereabouts.

TOP PICK: MODERN CHIC (1) will take plenty of beating.

DANGERS: JIVIN CULLEN (6) is a danger along with POKER STORM (5).

ROUGHIE: BAYRIDGE BILL (3) will run a race at odds.
