Well done with the series again.
I hope they are all too tired to run a 300m heat, semi and final after a very long day at Sandy this week. Smile
Well done Loryn

Well done all, I really like this series

Final winner received a $1,000 first prize, series winners each received $350.00 each week. Terrific pre-season hit out with fantastic prize money on hand. Still can't work out why there aren't more entries for a such a great event, something perhaps for runners to think about next year......

Good call Hitman. Pretty impressive form guide posted on the VAL website, profiling the athletes. See below.

Once again the John Henry & Terry McGarity stables featured prominently throughout the series. JH ended up with five in the final including the two backmarkers.

Sub 33secs by Luke Stevens off scratch is elite level running. Be worth heading down to Sandringham tomorrow to see if he can win the 300m Gift off scratch.

Luke STEVENS (7-4 fav) SCR (Trainer John Henry)

“Inside Evens” has taken up from where he left off last season (11 wins including the Albury Gift) with solid form in series one and two. The reigning AAC Athlete of the year looks well suited on the soft sand and is well placed to win his first race of the season despite his tough mark – the one to beat.

Matt Hargreaves (5-1) 14 (Trainer John Henry)

With much fan fare placed on his superstar training partner, the “peoples champ” has gone about his business this series with little fuss running a solid race in series 3. Is well suited to the surface with a powerful win in the inaugural 400m final on this track back in 2010. A win in the final would not surprise but see him doing his best work in the season proper.

Kevin Brittain (15) (3-1) (Self- trained)

Better known as a specialist 120m runner, Brittain demolished the field in series one and looks to be in sparkling early season form. Hasn’t run since series one whilst all other competitors bar Luke Stevens and Danielle McDowell have crept out in marks. Will be in it up to his ears – Watch

Cam Dunbar (2-1) 22 (Todd Ireland)

The consummate pro runner has done just enough each series to qualify for the final without appearing to spend too many petrol tickets along the way. Is very well handicapped and could easily sneak a break on the backmarkers mid race and prove too hard to run down, big watch

Wade Girotto (8-1) 42 (John Henry)

“The unit” impressed with a strong win in series 2 and has become something of a 300m specialist with two wins over the 300m last season. Will need to get a good start and be within striking distance of the front markers reasonably early to be chance – don’t dismiss

Adam Cabble (8-1) 46 (Terry Mgarity)

Like Girotto, Cabble looks more like a power lifter than a sprinter but certainly has some runs on the board with a commanding win in series three. In an astute stable (Terry Magarity) which holds him in good stead for this - watch betting

Kirsty Stevens (9-1) 63 (John Henry)

Sister of ‘inside evens’ who is another runner with solid form over the 300m distance. Hasn’t looked overly impressive this series but does have back to back 300m wins at Euroa (2013/14) and a Melton series win (2013) under her belt – don’t dismiss

Loryn Savoia (8-1) 79 (Gordon Muir)

The former distance runner looked a little lost early in the series but has since adapted well over the 300m to run some credible times in both series 2 & 3. Trained by noted middle distance runner and coach Gordon Muir so rest assured that she will be fit and raring to go – chance

Daniel McDowell (9-2) 79 (Terry McGarity)

Trained by the old fox Terry McGarity who will no doubt have McDowell primed and cherry ripe to give this a big crack. Will be leading the rest of the field a merry dance for a long long way and may just pinch enough of a break to cause a huge upset – each way

Samantha Hargreaves (7-1) 83 (John Henry)

The younger and much better looking half of the Hargreaves duo has come on leaps and bounds in only her second season in the VAL. Ran a cracking first up second to Brittain in series one and despite her lack of racing experience, will be thereabouts for the majority of the race – each way
