Lots of nicknames flying about. I may be out of my comedic role soon.
J Boulton 6m - 9% - 'Nuts and' Boulton has hit the Pro scene in a big way. He is always having a dip and making finals regularly. In honour of Monty Python, 'Notluob' will be chasing this race down and will go close. With heavy conditions potentially awaiting it will be interesting to see if he has the strength to back up tomorrow. I have him in the final but not with the win yet.
N Antonino 8.5m / J Ireland 8.5m - 16% - I would love to see a scratch race between these two again in the final. Did Ireland blow him away in the Wangaratta final and that induced a cramp? 'Ant man' has been on the radar for a while now, he is moving out in the marks nicely and next season he will win a gift and go into hiding for a bit. Ireland is another up and coming athlete who is making his share of finals. After his semi at Wangaratta I felt he was still a little away. He ran a great final and should be considered this week. Two more youngsters who will have to show their strength to run three times tomorrow. Final for both.
J Doderico 10m / K Kardakovski 10m - 13% - Doderico made the Maribynong final on Monday and ran nicely for third. It is hard to judge his race given the track and the times. To explain this further, K Bailey ran faster on Monday than on Saturday but the men ran lots slower. I can't see him making big gift finals yet. 'Muscle man' promises me the world and delivers me finals. I wont the win though. Apparently he likes apple crumble or something, maybe he needs to go gluten free? Semi of big Jack, final for KK and another broken promise.
M Zeed 10m / D Paull 10.25m - This time last year Zeed was swinging a cast into people's ribs* round the bends to take out a win. Another who I feel is not really in the mix for the final. 'Cruiser' is allowing his training group to have a laugh and why not. Everyone should enjoy what they are doing on the weekends and so what if a cruiser is the drink of choice. I heard the bar has stocked up just for the 'Bod' to get stuck in after his semi, at best.
S Rowsell 13.5m / T Rosen 15m - 14% - Votes not for Scott. He could not beat Rosen off levels in my book. Rosen is building as only he can. I am confident in saying that if he is right he may be tricky off 15m. I just don't feel that he is at his best yet.
Getting them done early tonight. Am I at the dinner** or am I not. Who knows, but anyone who reads the forum will be looking sideways for sure to work out if I am.
See you tonight, maybe.
*This is totally fabricated and merely written in jest. His run last year was amazing.
**To clear this up too, I am not there but thought athletes in attendance may want to discuss this especially if they are part of a joke. Enjoy your night.
