I had thought that the Don Furness would be handicapped to scratch. A 10m limit for a race like this is too much. I know it is in the guidelines that 10m is acceptable for a group two but I would like to see it closer to 7 or 8. If it were handicapped to scratch we could have had a limit of 8m. This race probably means more to us older patrons of the sport. I hope the winner understands the history. I feel that there are a couple of very good chances out towards the front. Who do you like? I am casting my 3 votes with one on the limit.

You might be right XXL but if you win this it will be along time before you ever win another 70m race anywhere Australia with a penalty of 1m

Looks to be another ripping installment of this the most coveted 70m race on the calendar! Always a great spectacle. The extended limit this year has seen a few entries we wouldn't normally see in this sort of a race such as Richards, Tran, Carey, Coop and Rosen of which I think neither will progress but it's great to see them in there to shake things up a little. Not as many girls as I thought there would be and suprised the likes of Rizzo is nowhere to be seen. . . late entry possibly. . .hmmm

Final of 6 as follows:

Tim Rooke 5.25
Has been a solid performer over the 70m distance this season, should final.

Rupert Lugo 6 **TOP 3 CHANCE**
Since running a blistering 8.45sec or so at the Bay 70m, Lugo has been a force over 70m and in the Gift distance of late. Will finish top 3 in a close one. As Youngy said, if he gets on the piss Friday night, he'll win, otherwise if he preps with green tea and a quite night, Adams will eat him alive!  

Hamish Adams 6.25 **TOP 3 CHANCE**
The kid can run. I thought he was a certainty to take out Keilor, though might be set for another race...  albino I think he's the top dog here despite the w/e performance in the 70m. Kudos to Todd on turning this kid into a force to be reckoned with. Love seeing his mop top going down the straight.

Matthew Harvey 6.5
On high from his win last week, he will lift and run well here to final.

Chris Diegan 7.5
Has been improving and looks to have a handy lift for this race, should final.

Noddy Angelakos 8 **TOP 3 CHANCE**
Flying under the radar a little in the 70s this season with his found form in the 400s. Meets similar athletes much better off with his mark having creeped out. If not the Don F. this week, maybe Arthur P. later on...

THOMAS MOLONEY 4.75 & Hayden Wyllie 6.5 (next in if any of the above are a no-show)
My darkies in this...

Looking at the votes there are some clear favourites and if we had a final with Lugo in the Red off 6m, Adams off 6.25m, Bailey 6.25m Wyllie 6.5m Mair 7.75m, Angelakos 8m, Rosen 8m and Coop 8.75m we would probably see a very good final. Lugo starts very well as does Mair. Adams and Bailey would be in a line with Lugo after about 10m. Angelakos could jump Rosen, but if fit, Rosen would be a step in front of Noddy by half way. Wyllie makes early ground on the front markers and holds until the end. Blanket finish in this one for a sash that means a lot to those of us who have seen this sport develop. Shame, because my picks didn't get many votes but she is sure to make the podium if the times are around 7.60 seconds from the front. The other big possibility is 'The Castle' to run in the top 4. He is made like one after all.
