Healthy numbers for the main race at Geelong. Last Year's Meeting of the Year. Moving ever closer to Easter, who is looking to pick up one of the few remaining gifts left for the season?

49 votes is not huge, there are some clear favourites though. I could probably add a couple more but the main chances have probably been picked so lets look at them.

Darci Hughes 6.25m (5 votes) - Hughes has won a 70m recently and ran a very good time in a 70m at Ballarat off a small mark. Seems to be learning how to run the longer distance making a few semi finals but is not getting into many finals. He may challenge the final here but I think there are better chances.

Dean Dobric 8.5m / Richard Brown 8.75m (5 votes) - Dobric has improved this season and I had thought early on he may be a chance to challenge for a top 6 position at Stawell. I am not sure if this is his year though. I would like to see him win something one day, don't think it will be this weekend though. Semi a lock, final a chance. Brown is an interesting athlete. He had a huge mark when he won the Maryborough 70m in 2014 and again in the 200m earlier this year - 20.247 off 22m in the final for an rpm of .113 - and has seemed to be thereabouts in semi finals this season in the gift. If his rpm for the 200m final translates across he will run 10.31 or thereabouts this weekend. That makes most finals. Is he one to watch?

Leigh Phelan 9.5m / Carrick Gill-Vallance 10m (17 votes) - I would not be surprised to see either of these get the win and could just about see that half the votes were for each athlete. Phelan has been knocking at the door most of the season and maybe should have picked off one of these smaller meets by now. Ran an adjusted 10.75 at Stonnington and should be able to repeat this which would place him in the final and close. Gill-Vallance is one of the lucky ones this year. Winning early races and receiving healthy lifts, up by 1.75m over the 100m distance since Northcote. I know a lot of runners who would love that kind of help with few runs. Has run very quick off a large mark in the 70m which would translate to being right in it if he is not playing ducks and drakes.

Luke Mitchell 10m / Darren Whittaker 10.25m (7 votes) - Mitchell is a younger runner who will do some damage at some stage as his mark is already healthy. He missed the final at Rye in the 70m Restricted due to injury so is steadily improving it seems. The votes here are surely for Whittaker. Made the final at Stonnington and would love to finish the season with a win somewhere. If he runs here expect him to either win or get done by the barest of margins. If he does not run then Bendigo must be his next target before focusing on a different distance at Easter.

Todd Ireland 12m / Timothy Rosen 12m (6 votes) - Another week, another tip for Rosen. No disrespect for Ireland, but the votes must be for Rosen. He has 10.25m in the 70m and should surely win one there soon, 12m in the 100m, 14.25m in the 120m and 24m in the 200m. All of these marks are cherry ripe for a win. Won Euroa at the end of last season off 14.75m and if he does not win this week will likely only have that or Ringwood as a chance for the remainder of the year. Which mark will he use before the season finishes?

Good luck
