Pfundt tipped for victory
BY PHIL EDWARDS
The examiner
29 Dec, 2010


TODAY'S Devonport Carnival men's and women's gifts look like being open affairs with several runners in with good chances in the 400-metre events.

Tasmanian Athletic League commentator Brian Paine, who successfully tipped both the Latrobe Gift winners on Boxing Day for The Examiner, has opted for Launceston runner Thomas Pfundt as his tip to take out the men's gift.

"None of his nine victories have been over 400m but off 36 metres I think he will be the one to beat," Paine said.

"Launceston's Darcy Leahy is a classy 16-year-old who has two wins so far this season and will be in the mix.

"And Burnie runner Ben Englund's best runs this season have been over the 400m."

Others to watch include Victorian Lachlan Taylor who is off a tight mark of 12m but has won two Stawell 400s along with South Australian James Boden coached by Paul Young and Derek Collinge from the Matt Beckenham stable.

"Latrobe 400m winner Mark Nichols is another with a chance and 16-year-old rising star Max Waldron is off 20m but is the state under-20 400m champion," Paine said.

Launceston teenager Abbey De La Motte was Paine's pick in the Devonport women's gift from Sorell runner Kimberley Bush and Victorian Tabitha West.

"Abbey has three wins over 400 this season and was a silver medallist in the under-18 400m in early December," he said.

"She might be penalised for winning at Latrobe but she won so convincingly she is my tip to win."

Paine said trainer Ray Quarrell had Bush running well this season and West was a former winner who could not be discounted despite a tight mark of 12m.

He also tipped frontmarkers Kristy Rootes, Fiona Heazlewood and Michelle Davis to make the women's final.

Carnivals athletics co-ordinator Rod Walker also opted for Launceston teenager Abbey De La Motte as his choice as the women's gift winner and picked Fay Denholm stablemate Darcy Lahey as his tip in the men's gift from Hobart's Dan Le Moto and Stawell Gift champion Tom Burbridge.
