Not up to the usual standard of previews, sorry girls!

Heat 1

Lauren “Beckenham Bounce” Boden, 9m: Fresh from her victories in the handicapper room, and any event she enters, Beckenham Bounce can win this if coach Beckenham has reduced her penalty from Latrobe and Devonport.

Morgan Whiley, 18m: Fatigued from the controversial third place finish in the rock, paper, scissor world championship, Morgs may not have the energy required to be a contender for this. Essentially the drama was around the opponents extremely late change from rock to paper that has kept Morgs up at night.  

Tiffany “Hot Stuff” Henricks, 21m: An incredible duathlete, Hot Stuff Henricks has every chance to add the Burnie 400m to her cycling win last night. Was seen out partying with a male entrant of the 400m at the bonfire last night, so it depends how focused Hot Stuff was on today’s events.

Monique Hollick, “the West Australian Wonder”, 22m: Has made some fantastic improvements over the past 12 months and has a mark that makes the Wonder the one to beat in this (Beckenham Bounce permitting). Big endurance background makes the rounds and the uphill finish no challenge.

Ella “the Speedster” Scott, 25m: Has adopted the unusual technique of backwards running and cartwheeling into the warm up, so don’t be too concerned if you see this in the infield. Known as the Speedster due to a successful smash and grab raid at the Burnie Caltex last NYE. The free doritos never tasted so good.

Leah “Wow Wee” Waldhauser, 26m: MiRrOrZ once took Wow Wee out for a night of dancing, but the Electric Boogaloog left her unimpressed.  You’ll definitely notice Wow Wee due to her unfortunate grass allergy. Wow Wee will be out wide making a late run down the velodrome!

Kimberley “Barbara” Bush, 28m: More suited to the shorter distances, Barbara will get out strong and look to hold on. So much to type, so easy to get banned.  

Sandy “Phantom” Loring, 29m: the Phantom will never live down that race at Roseberry where she donned a Balaclava – claiming neck soreness had previously cost her income. No.

Abby Chapman, 32m: Kicked out of Australian Idol due her background story not checking out, Paul Chapman’s sister is surrounded in mystery. December has been the month for plyometrics, so its all about neuromuscular fatigue.

Laura Jane Hilditch, “the Bacchus Marsh Beauty”, 38m: Last year’s female sprinter of the year, LJ has become incredibly competitive over the full range of events, and has to be mentioned in this one. All comes down to whether the 120 or 400 is the go today. No doubt boyfriend the Werribee Wonder – former quarter mile champion - will pass on some quality tactics.

Heat 2

Jana “Drama” Pittman, 11m: The quality of Drama cannot be understated, as there aren’t too many dual world champions running around in Tasmania. The problem however, is the frequent injuries that have plagued here over recent years. 11m would be more than enough to challenge, but MiRrOrZ believes Drama is a late scratching.

Stephanie “Annie Lennox” Mollica, 18m: Winner of the 800m at Stawell, Annie Lennox has the endurance to run the rounds. Will need to be in striking distance with 150m to go, but is in this up to her peroxided locks. Only recently Annie found a 28% improvement in her table tennis performance by adopting the pen grip.

Abbey de la Motte, “the Launceston Leopard” 18m: The long striding Launceston Leopard has been extremely impressive over the TAL carnival winning the prestigious Devonport Gift in striking fashion. Will incur the handicappers wrath for that win and may be too far back for this one. Smoke predicts the Leopard will break 51.50 in her career.

“Baby” Bonnie McCarthy, 20m: Baby is new to the circuit, and has little form to go by for this. Feel that maybe Hobart or St Helens will be the go here. Baby was a backup dancer on the Australian legs of Britney Spears’ Circus tour.

Carly “the Excitement” Edmunds, 24m: The Excitement will explode early and be a looming as a huge danger at the halfway mark. It is there that all those missed training sessions spent watching the Real Housewives re-runs will start to take its toll. Not this year but will appreciate the run.

Zoe Gee, “Gee-Unit”, 25m: Has been thereabouts this week without truly threatening, Gee-Unit would be happy with a final appearance. Was seen practicing the “John Henry Arms” technique post Devonport, so could have improvement.

Amy Pedder, 27m: A latecomer to the sport after unsuccessfully auditioning for Wipeout, Pedder will thriving in a physical race with plenty of elbows and shoulders. Could get that at Burnie, but feel will be better for the run. Prefer others.

Carmen Oakley, “Latrobe Lightening” 28m: Latrobe Lightening’s peak was aimed at her local gift which she duly saluted. A finalist at Devonport one would anticipate Lightening will be on the podium in this one. Does Lightening have what it takes to hold off the backies and claim the win?

Claire “the Camden Cannonball” Ashman, 33m: The Cannonball has flown over from Adelaide for this, and has to be considered. Rumoured to have spent considerable time walking Rundle Mall lately finding the latest Jane Fonda Workout DVD for boyfriend Tiny Thiele, this could count against the Cannonball in the last 50m.

Michelle Davis, 36m: The frontie will get swamped early, and really needed more from the handicapper to be a threat in this.

Nicole “Perfection” Perry, 24m: A great mark for Perfection gives all the locals a great chance to see her run two rounds in this one. Has been entered in a large number of races over the week, but if Perfection has recovered will be in this to the last stride. Watch betting.

Word on the street is that Tiffany “Hot Stuff” Henricks is otherwise known as Cannons by her peers.

Not sure why though?
