The 400m Ringwood Gift is a highly sought after win. One of the big three available in Victoria. There have been some very handy athletes win this race over the years. It could be a great example of handicap running with two quality girls out in front. Could we see another female win this race?

Like Bendigo I can see a few vets and young guns in this.

Young- Verral and Hilson (50.at nationals) right in it. Smokey has to be Wiseman. He strangely ran frontiers 4 at Ballarat, Under 20's 4 at Bendigo and went through 400 in his 550 heat at Yarra in 51.

Vets- Maurer will catch Haigh and Page and I can't see Ezard or Yorke making up 10m on him. Smokey is Little. Surprised vets at the Bay and he didn't look like he would blow out a candle after his 550 at Euroa. Has a 21. to his name over 200.

Who else- Harvey has to be a chance after Euroa 300 win and has been running some 4's and 550's.

The winner will not come from last heat - 30 mins before final. Massive disadvantage that should be looked at by VAL and fixed before Sunday

Agree with runforit there is definately an advantage / disadvantage depending on your heat draw for longer events where the turn around is quick. On the flip side there is a great mix of athletes to pick from. Hardest thing to work out is who's going to have a real crack, who's waiting for Easter and who's already thinking of next year? Just to hard to pick...and too many names to mention. Look forward to seeing results come through.

What a great race. So many chances. So hard to choose a winner.
I thought I’d take a form line through some key leadup races to try and narrow it down.
Bendigo 400m form is the best formline for this race. Add in the fronties using Stawell fronties 400, Avondale Heights, Ballarat 400 fronties (first 6 ran quicker than backies division) and Bendigo 300m vets as reference points.

Bendigo 400
Kerr 16m – cruised a high tempo around the Bendigo circle before clicking into another gear on straightening. 44.79 = 45.29 with the VAL formula. At around an 8m per second running speed his 16m pull has him at 47.29 cruising. Suspect he has another gear left so can final here.
Hilson 25m – 3rd at Bendigo in sub 46 secs. The same run wins Ringwood. Simple. The one to beat on Bendigo form.
James 32m – 4th at Bendigo in sub 46 secs. 4th Ararat last week in a significantly lower grade. Also 4th at Trinity in the smallest race on the calendar. I’m bloody confused. Maybe does not race well? Showed his hand at Bendigo and will have a throw at the stumps here.
Verrall 26m – 5th at Bendigo in sub 46 secs. Won Henley (SA) 400m in October off 23m. Got a 3m lift for that victory to run off 26m in Victoria. 2nd at Trinity before looking good through the rounds at Bendigo. (Maybe the Trinity form is not as bad as I thought). Massive chance here.
Burnett 33m – 6th at Bendigo in 46 flat. Young runner on a big mark. Had an absolute crack at Bendigo and the only one to try and challenge Kerr. He even looked a ½ chance as they straightened but then Kerr slipped into another gear and blew them away. Will go well.
Sabbatucci 33m – 7th at Bendigo. Another young runner on a huge mark for his age. The surprise packet of the 400 season. Bobbed his head up for the first time at Ballarat then unable to run Haigh down in the cut-throat Avondale Heights winner only heat. Final chance.
Maurer 40m – 8th Bendigo. 51.9 peg to peg at Vic Masters last week. Has looked the goods hovering just outside the places at Castlemaine, Ballarat and Avondale. Finally showed his hand at Bendigo in the heat and semi before Kerr tightened him up in the final. Will love running on the amateur track.
Rooke 28m – 9th Bendigo. The forgotten man after coming 2nd in last years Stawell 400m backmarkers. Trains at the track and can final here.

Bendigo 300m vets
Yorke 30m – 2nd Bendigo 300m vets. His performances at Yarra were gladiator like. Ran the final of the Vic champs open 400 hurdles in the morning then drove out to Yarra Ranges gift to win the heat and final of the 550, then run a heat and finish 2nd in the final of the 300m vets. His 550m win gives him a bonus lift for the Stawell 550m so will try and win this one. Big chance.
Stephens 52m – 3rd Bendigo 300m vets. Won Ararat 400m in 46.7 last week. Appears to have retained his handicap for the bigger task here. 2nd Ballarat fronties in ½ a second quicker than the backies division. 4th Avondale Heights. The one to beat from the front division.

Stawell 400m frontmarkers
Haigh 53m – 4th Stawell frontmarkers. Has come back this year in good form coming in the placings at Rye, Wang and more importantly Avondale. Won 300m vets at St Albans and Yarra Ranges. Looked terrible at Bendigo and Euroa, suggesting his ageing body may have had enough.
Rosen 47m – 5th Stawell frontmarkers after winning Trinity earlier. Has tactical speed to put pressure on those in front of him whilst holding out those behind him. Does not seem to be in the same 400 form as last year. Time will tell.
Howard 52m – 7th Stawell frontmarkers. Looks in better form this season after winning Trinity 400 over Verrall. Goes back up 12m from Bendigo where he ran 48.8 off 40m. In last years Ringwood final and a chance to get in the final again.
Page 52m – 8th Stawell frontmarkers. Won 400m at Latrobe after Christmas back in his home state. 3rd Wang 400, 4th Ballarat fronties 400, 2nd Avondale 400m. Recently won Euroa 550 . Looks poised to strike here or Stawell.
Drummond 57m – 10th Stawell frontmarkes after recording fastest heat time on the Saturday. Another forgotten runner. Bobbed up at Ballarat with fastest heat time in fronties 400 before coming 3rd in final. Should not be underestimated.

Avondale Heights – 2nd Page, 3rd Haigh, 4th Stephens, 6th Maurer, 7th Burnett
Ballarat front 400 – 2nd Stephens, 3rd Drummond, 4th Page, 6th Haigh, 7th Hecimovic, 8th Howard, 9th Wiseman.

I have also liked the progress of Wiseman, Tancredi, Little, Lagastes, Brennan (up 4m after making last years Stawell backies 400 final) plus early season runs of Ezard (1st Northcote 400m), Wurm (2nd Devonport 400m) and Mitchell (1st Castlemaine 400m). Wildcards are Payne and Ruach who probably only need to be in sub 56 sec peg to peg shape to have an impact here.

A lot depends on the draw and who is in later heats. 30 mins rest for last heat gives unfair advantage to earlier heats.

There has been a minor change to the timetable to increase the break between heats and final of the 400m.
The 1600m has been pushed back to 5.10pm. The last heat of the 400 is 5.00pm with the final at 5.50pm.

Great result for the 400s. Well done Todd

Runforit, just for the record, William Little's 200m PB is 23.19 electric legal wind (also ran 22.87 (+2.7)). About 5 years ago I believe. The time you found on all athletics 21.9 is not a correct time.

9 Re: Ringwood Gift on Thu Mar 30, 2017 9:39 am

Runforit


Has done well to run 50.8 this season then given that PB was 5 years ago when he was a 'young' 30...or is the 50.8 not a correct time also?! Think he can at least run 22's right now and will have a big crack here or at Stawell. Hopefully he will blow out a candle this weekend after running
