All five have sprint chances

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

TONIGHT’S $1600 Mother’s Day Gift Sprint (537m) is only a five-dog field at Win­nel­lie Park, but all run­ners ap­pear to have claims, in­clud­ing the An­drew Lasker pair of Bom­bay Rock and Cairn­lea Buster.

Phan­tom Henry is go­ing well for Jamie Hosk­ing, while Allen Ichiro for the Dar­win Grey­hound As­so­ci­a­tion’s lead­ing trainer Rus­sell Sav­ige is an­other one to watch.

Richard Carr has a new ad­di­tion to his ken­nel and Weona Vee war­rants close at­ten­tion in race one.

Un­der­es­ti­mated trainer Si­mon Nathanael has lead­ing con­tender Jet­mag Sally en- gaged and she will be hard to beat in race two.

Hur­ri­cane Chloe (Sav­ige) and Ni­tro In­jected (Richard Smith) both show good early speed and the out­side draws can as­sist their chances in race three.

The Leta Smith-trained Ring­bark Lana can bounce back in race four.

Race five has a num­ber of chances, in­clud­ing the Brad Yates-trained Smash­niak Rocks from the in­side draw.

It is worth watch­ing new­comer Gotta Be Bet­ter for trainer Peter Don­nel­ley in race six, as he looks to have nice Vic­to­rian form lines.

Big Stink (Brian Kelle­her), Out There Jerry (An­drew Lasker), Blue­bow (Chris Black­man) and Elite Fal­con (Leta Smith) all have solid form go­ing into race seven.

Hosk­ing has Arn­hem May­hem fly­ing at the mo­ment and with a lit­tle early luck he will take a power of beat­ing from box one in race eight.

The Chris Black­man team of Heart­break Ho­tel and Dis­tant Shores will have a strong say in the fin­ish in race 10.

And promis­ing young­ster Eight Princes (Brad Yates) has been a model of con­sis­tency, and de­serves to break through in race 11.
