1 Middle distance tips (550m chances by hilly) on Sat Dec 20, 2014 10:13 pm


Hillys top 10
550m open.
Sam "I am" Russell 25M: Young kid with plenty of potential, second last year, second at pre bay. Can he go one better here? I'm not sure he can but will final.

Kostya "what colour headband will I wear" Khodoshian 27M:
The form 550m runner of the SAAL with wins at flagstaff and port adelaide. Little off the pace at pre bay but goes forward 2M and had just run a 1600m. Will be better here.

Deng "bustling" bulabek 32M:
Didn't quite have the race tactics at pre bay but will have some improvement in him this time around, should strongly consider moving out his way if he is within reach at the final bend

Cameron "carnage" Clayton 32M:
After the stawell backmarkers final I feel carnage is appropriate. Carnage will go close if he chooses to run however he may prefer his chances in the select mile. Wait and see.

Robbie "Quicker than he lets on" killmier 34M:
Has been known to talk himself down then pops up and runs brilliantly, normally there's one from the pre bay final that finds a few metres. Hilly thinks robbie is the man.

Jack "top knot" Sutton 40M:
Last years winner and a third placing at pre bay. Hard to see him going back to back but never rule out a man confident enough to rock a man bun.

Michael "can talk all day" Nitschke 43M:
One minute he will tell you he's retiring, next he's gunna win. Serial finalist in this event without taking home the chocolates. Without seeing him run this season i can only assume he will be around the mark.

Jake "may be in the gift final" Stangewitz 44M:
Ran second at the Whyalla 120m gift, but hasn't done much since then. Not too sure where he is at but I can assure you if he runs the 550m he will be there at the crucial stages.

Dave "Santa clause" girolamo 72M:
Has run second placings all year until it came no pull time, has won 2 out of 2 since then. Hilly called it early on and expects girolamo to get up.
Hopefully he does so hilly can jingle all the way to the bar at the after party.

Brad "whispers Santa clause" jones 78M:
Hilly wouldn't have Jones in here however whispers seems to think he's the one,
Rumoured calf injury was the reason for the poor performance at port adelaide however wasnt too far off the pace with a 6th at pre bay.
Sneaks forward 2M here and is definately a chance to final.

Giralamo will be hoping Jones makes the final and gives him the same cover up and lead into the race that he did at the Pre Bay.
Looks like a real mad scramble coming up and maybe could be one of the races of the Carnival.


Definately will be one of the races of the carnival whispers.
If any of the vic boys could throw in a couple more interstate chances. I have a feeling I may have missed a couple. Reed? Downes maybe?


Reed demolished a quality field at Epping over the distance back in late November in a good time. No disrespect to the SA boys but I think he has them all covered bar Girolamo. Think that these two will fight it out for first and second.

Girolamo was off 72 last year. Year older and he's 5seconds faster off the same mark. Credit must go to Mickey Buckler who has taken over Girolamo in the last 12 months. Looks to me he's been set for this race and has one foot on the podium.


I'm going to say girolamo as well for the win but won't count out killmier as he is capable of anything and smokie in Rothe. Not to win but the kid is determined and could cause an upset in a heat.

Shows you how bad Kilmier is going when he gets pushed out to 34. Khudoshin giving Kilmier a start is a joke.

Vic chances:
- Darren 'always 4th' Naismith is a strong chance in both the 550 and 800. His golden locks are about as hard to miss as his 'grimace' to the finish line.
Expect him to be competitive.

- Jacob 'used to be chubby' Reed has quit the french fries, changed coaches and looks ready for his first interstate victory. Has only been seen a couple of times on the amo circuit this season and for good reason.

- Celia 'Chatterbox' Cosgriff has a strong chance if she saves breaths for the running. Celia jogs around most of the year and wins when the coach says she can pull the trigger.

Talk about a barking dog getting fed.
Jarrad Dartnall, a generous 10m lift on 2013.
64m is a crazy mark for a guy who is probably in the top 3 sprinters in the field.
He has 32 in a 400. Extra 150 meters and he goes up a whopping 32. Unbelievable.

12 Re: Middle distance tips (550m chances by hilly) on Sun Dec 21, 2014 11:05 pm


Racingmania hilly has picked up on that also. Don't think he will be quite there this year but if he changes up his training lock him in next season.

13 Re: Middle distance tips (550m chances by hilly) on Sun Dec 21, 2014 11:51 pm


He's changed to Buckler so already doing longer work.
after his mate Girolamo wins this year, Dartnall is a lock for next year.

Let's face it, 550m marks are a dogs breakfast. Last year the winner got a lift after a bullshit effort at Pre-Bay. Just too many inflated marks for guys who like to lay low.

The 550m discussion is just a teaser until everyone looks at the premier disease race of the carnival the 'select mile' - one would think you should need to be somewhere near the best shape / within 90/95% of your PB to win this race? Not so sure this year.....

- Matthew Ferber with a recent 3.54 sounds like the only pick to challenge Rowe to me.

- Surely Bryce will be close too off his generous mark if he's not cooked from the 8/550.

Rowe to win.

Hopefully a muppet off 44m or more will not win it.

Give it a rest pal.
Congrats to you for being a world beater and running in the ammos but not everyone has the ability to win from scratch as I'm assuming you must?
The idea of pros is people with less natural talent can still compete and win.


I thought it an odd comment from 12345678. Why did he choose 44m as the cut off for "muppets"? Why not athletes over 40m or 35m?
Some good runners on more than 44m.

I want to be there when 12345678 tells Adam Coote that hes a muppet for winning the 550m off more than 44m.
Think he may have won more sashes than 12345678 and umpired more football grand finals than 12345678 and his 550m sash at the Bay Sheff Carnival sits pretty well.
Its a good thing that 12345678 doesnt post often.

22 Re: Middle distance tips (550m chances by hilly) on Tue Dec 23, 2014 12:07 pm


12345678 只想要一个合法的选手赢得,而不是一些平庸的作弊追腰带。


A wise man once told me that sashes mean nothing santa


I think 12345678 is just upset I didn't include him in the top 10 chances.


yeah i bet 12345678 is absolutely shattered that he wasn't included in your tips for the december olympics


He wouldn't be in my tips for a state 400m or 800m final either.

I can only guess you have never been to the Olympics DR. Your comment shows you to be too ignorant & arrogant to be one of the less than 1% of the athletic population that ever makes it to Olympic level. Olympians don't make disrespectful comments and have far more respect for the battlers out there enjoying their sport regardless of what level they compete. The Bay Sheffield is a brilliant athletic carnival to be enjoyed by all regardless of what level you're at.
