1 No tick chasers won a circle event at Stawell on Mon May 02, 2011 9:38 am


It appears no tick chasers won a circle event at Stawell. All had a minor lift and were close to their start handicap at Stawell (except the 400 fronties winner who went up 3m for season).

Only 1 circle winner at Stawell won over that distance for the season and that was with full handicap back.
None had to rely on lifts to win.

None ran more than 4 times over the distance for the season.

400 womens Platten ran 4 400's for season, 1m lift
400 backies Fitzpatrick ran 2 400's for season, 1m lift
400 fronties Chantrill (QLD) ran 3 400's for season without making a final, lifted 3m.
550 Woodrow ran 2 550's for season, 1m lift
800 Lewis ran 3 800's for season, 2 lifts (4m total)
800 women Mollica ran 2 800's for season, won Ringwood and got mark back for Stawell.
1600 fronties Phelan ran 3 miles for season, 1 lift (5m)
1600m backies Whiteley (TAS) ran 1 mile 8 weeks before Stawell coming 19th at Maribyrnong.
3200 backies Munro ran 1 2 mile for season finishing 29th at Wang for 10m lift.
3200 fronties Newman ran 2 2 miles for season finishing 15th at Wang, 1 lift (20m).


Could argue that Chantrill only came to Vic to get a few ticks and a lift so he could set up his Stawell win?

Agree with others.


Is this good or bad, does the VAL need Stawell as the carrot to attract participation and support for minor meetings?

Is the tick reward system working?

What would happen to minor meetings if the tick system were abolished?

Or has the tick system past it's use by date?

What will happen next year when athletes realise that chasing ticks does not work for Stawell result?
