Stawell middle distance tips 400m fronties/backies/550m

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


400m Frontmarkers:

Main chances:

Beau Tran
James Deane
Andrew Curran
Carrick Gill Valance
Calvin Gook
Daivid Haigh
David Page

One of the most open fronties fields I have seen in a while. Some young guys have managed to get out to some pretty big marks, Tran 53, Gook 50 with teenager Tzilantonis coming back throughout the season (36) but still a huge chance. Ran the fastest gift heat at Ringwood in the gift and hasn't been sighted since. The veterans in Haigh, Page, Deane and Curran all in great form so almost impossible to split. Hard pressed I'd have to go for the experience of Haigh to make the most of his mark and pinch the race from Curran and Tzilantonis

400m Backmarkers

Main chances


The obvious picks in Tancredi and Phelan come back in marks from their outstanding runs in the black opal. Fellow finalists Kenshole and Hargreaves both huge chances with last years runner up Adams likely to be thereabouts.

Despite the pull hard to see Phelan being run down and tip him to win from a very fast finishing Matt Hargraeves from Paul Tancredi


Main chances


In such a strong field, its hard to believe that Ashley Kenshole is the biggest lay down misere since Michael Marantelli in 2007. Ran a staggering 107.9 in his winning heat at Yarra Ranges and duly won the final in 108.1 off 33m beating a gallant Cameron Clayton. Kenshole goes up 2 metres to 35m and I cant see him being beaten. Luke Stevens runs his first ever 550m and should be flying home late for second with Clayton third


not including yourself in the 400 fronties chances hitman?

also include greg hilson, tim rosen and brett maurer 

rosen somehow goes forward 4m from his opal semi final mark


you are right about kenshole in 550


Hitman looks like you got most of ‘em. Add these to your final.

400 front
Any teenager who can find form and there are lots of them in this division.
Bramham won Terang 400 then lost form. If shows that form at Stawell will go close.
Potter too good over a sprint to have 50m in 400. Placed recently in Tas over 400 and keeps TAS mark. Go close.
Cayzer has lost a leg since 3rd at Ringwood 400m (injured?) 1m lift for Stawell.
Maurer a 3m lift from Keilor to 37m. Will hunt them down in fronties 400m.
Winner: Page after 300 win at Stonnington. 2nd in Stawell 550 last year the day after winning mile. Now trained for shorter stuff.

400 back
Coop 2nd in Ringwood 400. Will be a pest if in your heat.
Clayton back to winning range from mark he won off at Stawell 2 years ago.
Winner: Undisclosed. Will go off like a brides nightie. Has massive pb compared to handicap. Will run 44 secs.

Mitchell is a nutter and will go nuts in 550 off 28m
Adin off last years form can figure in 550
Bramham won 550 at the Bool with a leg in the air to claim auto 3m lift.
Alexander too good to have 22m
Paull won back 400 last year. 27m has a chance in this.
Cohen made final last year and goes up in handicap.
Winner: Kenshole if Clayton was not foxing at Yarra Valley.


Clayton has to be a huge chance in the 550m. He has won across his other distances and has a very handy mark here.
Undisclosed in the 400m backmarkers Kangaroota, maybe we should talk?
Great summation in this thread though.


Agree with Hitman17, no clear standout for the fronties 400 (yet), hopefully it stays that way and we have a close race.

The backies has opened a little more since the pull for Tancredi and Phelan and think both are now definitely within reach of being run down. Although everyone may as well take their bat and ball and go home if there is going to be a 44 second runner as per Kangaroota's comments.

Do elaborate Kanga...we're all ears!

Odds of Kenshole doing the 400m/550m double are very high after his 46.5 Bendigo run, and the program suits this program perfectly.
