Bet Chimps Punters Guide – 2018 Mackinnon Stakes

It’s Mackinnon Stakes day, which brings a sad close to the Spring Carnival and we have the best from every race with the Bet Chimps Punters Guide and, we are ready to go for the big card at the 2018 Mackinnon Stakes. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Melbourne’s Own 3aw Trophy 1600m

This one is going against popular thinking here – but, many think that Manuel won’t cut the mustard here today, but, with the ground firming up – the early favourite at time of writing, will be the one to beat. Has shown great late speed, and, the only other comparable over the final two furlongs is Call It A Day. However, McEvoy is having a spring for the ages, and it is highly unlikely to see this ride go amiss.

Top Pick – Manuel
No next best – No third dividend

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 2 – Juvenile Diabetes Research Plate 2000m

Interesting race here, but, the Japanese import looks too good at the weights here to not be favoured. Danon Roman missed the win against Lucky For All last start by 0.3L when carrying 2kgs more, today, is carrying 1kg less than Lucky For All, and will be ultra competitive again here. Gets a preferable track and the distance is right where ti should be. Look for bold run. Lucky For All can’t be discredited either, beaten the top pick previously, comes in a few kilo’s lighter than then, and has shown great speed in the important stages of races. Expected to be there again. Pleasuring has been knocking on the door all spring, including a third two back that was just a narrow margin off a win. Can hit the line hard and has drawn well to box seat as preferred. True chance.

Top Pick – Danon Roman
Next Best – Lucky For All
Longshot – Pleasuring

TOP PICK
mackinnon stakes

Race 3 – Watch Racing.com Springtime Stakes 1400m

Yulong January is a horse that we have followed here all spring, and, that isn’t going to change here. Narrowly missing out on quadruple wins, when just failing to clip Ranier, finds an easier field here today including an over-valued Ringerdingding. Yulong January is well weighted and has drawn perfectly for a good run here. Expected to win. Wagner may have drawn the car park here, but, at its best – can beat this field. We have seen what Wagner can produce early on in his career. Has not handled Victorian tracks all too well, and, prefers firmer ground – gets firmer ground today and can be competitive. Big jump in class here from the back-to-back winner, No Emotion, however, comes in well at the weights, won two of three tries at the distance and is expected to be in the mix again here today. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Yulong January
Next Best – Wagner
Longshot – No Emotion

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 4 – Derucci Chatham Stakes 1400m

This is the most open race of the day – and there are two that standout in Widgee Turf and MR.Sneaky, but, arguments can be made for at least another four. Going to go with Widgee Turf on top here, was really gallant in defeat last start, comes into this one carrying less, and, has a rider change. Just needs to hold on a bit better the that late speed in this one and should be too hard to beat. Mr.Sneaky is just one of those horses that can run a big race – at its best, can beat this field by 1L+. Coming into this one on the back of some pretty disappointing results, will need a bit of improvement here but, capable. Torgesen is the best of the rest here. Interesting type that is coming in on the back of a stylish win last start. Anything close to last effort will be enough here. Definite chance.

Top Pick – Widgee Turf
Next Best – Mr.Sneaky
Longshot – Togersen

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 5 – Queen Elizabeth Stakes 2600m

Gallic Chieftain is great value here, and, loves this distance, drawn the rail and will get cover throughout. Has shown that it can still hit the line hard and should be included in all exotics here. Top chance. Jameeh has been running well this prep – but, this extra half furlong just seemed a little too much last start. Is against a softer field than last effort and will be there abouts once again. Libran has not featured for a while – but, ticks a few boxes here. Winner around this time last year, enjoys the distance and is coming in on the back of a third that maps well for this race.

Top Pick – Gallic Chieftain
Next Best – Jameeh
Longshot – Libran

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 6 – 7news Matriarch Stakes 2000m

Aqua D’Ivina is where you want to be this race – racing consistently, may have drawn a little wide, but, has the natural ability to overcome this. Unbeaten at this distance on one run, and, has shown the best turn of foot in this field. One to beat. Our Libretto jumps in class here today, but, nothing suggests that it won’t be able to handle the grade. Classy runner that can get going late, and has the benefit of not having to work hard early with a good draw. One of the chances. Eckstein is one that you can’t not include, has a habit of showing up when it is least expected, and, in this field it is one of those situations. While it may not have the same closing speed as some – it may get some luck, which is all Eckstein will need to capitalise.

Top Pick – Aqua D’Ivina
Next Best – Our Libretto
Longshot – Eckstein

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 7 – Vrc Sprint Classic 1200m

Redzel may not have the soggy track it excels on today – but, recent trial was impressive to say the least, blazing in without even trying. Drawn a little wide and will need to put in a bit of work to get the lead, but, McEvoy is on fire right now and just knows how to get the best out of Redzel. One to beat here. Next best is Santa Ana Lane, always in a good spot and just needed firmer ground last start, the ground gives that chance here today and should be able to show sharp improvement on last start. Pierata gets a chance here to unseat Redzel for speed. Both ran the same distance on the same day last out, and Pierata did it two seconds quicker, that isn’t saying that Pierata will blow this field away – it is suggesting that it will handle the step up in class and has the speed to match. Definite chance here.

Top Pick – Redzel
Next Best – Santa Ana Lane
Longshot – Pierata

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 8 – Seppelt Mackinnon Stakes 2000m

Blair House is extremely over-rated here and there is just too many bookie “experts” saying this horse will walk it in – when a bookie tells you a horse will win, that should be your first red flag, that isn’t suggesting it can’t win – it is suggesting that it won’t be a shock if it fails to fire because there is a large portion of the bets on this horse. One that really standsout here for the upset is Trap For Fools, who ran an honest second last start in much more talented company. Expected to run well again and a win wouldn’t shock. Shillelagh was impressive last start when beating a very strong field in the group one Empire Rose stakes. First try at the ten furlongs, but, has the ability to win. Extra Brut is the value point – winner at big odds last start over similar trip and against better runners, anything close to last effort and it can win this one comfortably.

Top Pick – Trap For Fools
Next Best – Shillelagh
Longshot – Extra Brut

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Race 9 – Grand Handicap 1100m

Eurack would have had even brighter prospects had the barrier draw been a little more beneficial, but, the unbeaten first-up runner is the quickest in the race, and does better fresh as an added kicker. Unbeaten over four career starts and looking for the quintuple here today, and it is achievable against this field. Eurack has the best sectionals over the last two furlongs and will prove hard to beat fresh. Order Of Command has drawn perfectly here and should be able to boxseat throughout. Only gone unplaced over the distance once over five starts and that was due to interference mid race. Can go well here. As It Lies could be the value point here. Yet to go unplaced second up – but, yet to win as well. Distance suits and drawn midfield. Has the early ability to roll forward and will prove hard to beat if can dictate the pace of the race.

Top Pick – Eurack
Next Best – Order Of Command
Longshot – As It Lies

TOP PICK
Mackinnon Stakes

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Moonee Valley


Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia (Moonee Valley Punters Guide)

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Hawkesbury. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Lucrf Super Handicap 1000m

Interesting race here to start the night. A rather open affair on paper, all horses are very closely matched, however, Final Choice gets the nod here. Last two wins were impressive and, closed out both of those races with impressive sectionals. Comes in at a good weight, may have drawn a little wide, but, will push forward quickly and be hard to beat. Propelle is a true chance here. Despite poor first up history, has shown an ability to finish strong, and, will look to do so again here, racing behind the lead pack. In the mix. Sacred Sword has been impressive when grabbing second on both career starts. Will be unperturbed by the big crowd and will run well. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Final Choice
Next Best – Propelle
Longshot – Sacred Sword

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 2 – The Westin Melbourne Handicap 2040m

Pleasuring was rather disappointing last start despite grabbing a minor. Finds a field slightly more competitive here, but, will be better for last run. Unproductive at the track, but, lethal over the distance, winning two of four starts. Maps well here and will give benefit of the doubt. Michael Walker and Pierrocity are clear dangers here. Placed previously over 2100m only just missing the win on that occasion. Possess good race fitness and will be in the mix here. Lopartega is the value point here. Dwayne Dunn has the ride, who has been a consistent jockey at Moonee Valley this spring. Lopartega has drawn a little wide, but, will need to run on pace to account for the short straight at the Valley.

Top Pick – Pleasuring
Next Best – Pierrocity
Longshot – Lopartega

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 3 – Chandler Macleod Vobis Gold Star 1500m

Widgee Turf is the one to be on here. Dropping in class, will need to carry 60kgs for it, but, is the best horse in this field. Strong finisher, sectionals suggest a quick finish, drawn well, but, will drop back early on. Late strider that will be hard to keep at bay if Zahra can find a seam. Iconoclasm would be the top pick here, if not for being consistently inconsistent. Current favourite at time of writing, and, will more than likely be that at jump. Iconoclasm has his followers, but, needs to keep up with last races efforts to be in this one. Nangawooka won for us here three starts back at big odds ($15), and is double that value here today. Jumps sharply in class, but, this horse thrives in stronger surroundings. Expect a bold finish.

Top Pick – Widgee Turf
Next Best – Iconoclasm
Longshot – Nangawooka

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 4 – Msc Signs Handicap 2040m

Zahspeed, at its best – is better than any other runner in this race. Multiple winner at this distance, winner at class and has had most success on the going expected tonight. Drawn perfectly on the rail and will look to push forward and lead from start to finish. Good value and over the odds. The Lord Mayor is another that can’t be denied here. Winner of two from four at this range, dropping back in distance which suits, as it was racing out of its depth last two starts. Expect a better effort here. Mr.Garcia could be the value point here. Impressive type that is always there abouts. Winner at range and John Allen is yet to lose on the 6-year-old gelding. Definite danger.

Top Pick – Zahspeed
Next Best – Lord Mayor
Longshot – Mr.Garcia

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 5 – Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Ht3 955m

Esperance is the form horse in this race. Winner of last two, winner at distance but, stepping up slightly in class. However, speed over the short distances suggests that Esperance will be first past the post. Hugh Bowman is 2/2 in the saddle, and, will be looking to complete the hat-trick here today. Biggest danger will be in Prezado, a horse that has a ton of potential, but, rarely actualizes it on race days. Grabbed a minor on two of three starts after spell, and will have race fitness headed into this one. True chance. Essence Of Terror could be a good option here as well, fast start, and, will look to go straight to the front at the start – but will have a lot of company and will need a good start from the wide barrier to achieve that. If not overworked early on – will be right in this one.

Top Pick – Esperance
Next Best – Prezado
Longshot – Essence Of Terror

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 6 – Sweeney Estate Agents Handicap 1200m

Runson was super impressive when winning last start over the five furlongs, has an extra furlong to deal with today which could be a question mark. Stephen Baster is returning for the ride after strong win last start. Runson is yet to win over this distance and is more suited to the five, but, will get benefit of the doubt here over the six furlong marker. Captain Punch has drawn awkwardly, but, is another one of those horses that is going to be right in this one. Will look to start fast and push for the early lead, has the stamina to go from post-to-post here and a win wouldn’t be out of turn. Stellar Collision is another one that can’t be denied here in a very competitive field. Winner at track and distance previously, winner at class and a consistent performer when fresh. Expect a bold showing.

Top Pick – Runson
Next Best – Captain Punch
Longshot – Star Collision

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 7 – Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes 1200m

Sunlight despite not being overly exposed to this kind of a race, is the one to beat here. Riding extremely light and ready to fly. Drawn a gun run, will bolt to the lead out of the gate and be hard to track down. This 3-year-old filly has that something special, and, much like Redzel, is one of those horses that excels when in front. One to beat. Voodoo Lad can’t be discounted here. Winner at this track and distance on two from two starts, has shown great late speed previously and is a much better chaser than leader. Expect a bold finish. Malaguerra is just the type of horse that loves to upset big races. Done it many times before, has been rested to be fresh just for this race. At its best – can win here. First up record is very eye watering and will be competitive here.

Top Pick – Sunlight
Next Best – Voodoo Lad
Longshot – Malaguerra

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 8 – Mitchelton Wines Handicap 1500m

Tamasa is the one to be on here. Impressive winner last two starts, has shown a great turn of foot this prep and rates on top as best of the day. Won two of three starts at this distance, steps up slightly in class, but, has the speed and ability to win this one. One to beat. Kings Command can’t be looked over either. Get’s its normal jockey Ben Thompson back in the saddle here today and, the duo have combined to win at this range and class previously. Dropping in class and carrying a little bit of weight, but, will be right in this one. Call It A Day could be the value point here. Winner three times on five starts at this distance, finds a race similar to last win and can win this.

Top Pick – Tamasa
Next Best – Kings Command
Longshot/Value – Call It A Day

TOP PICK

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Mackay

Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

The Punters Guide returns after a good day yesterday, with multiple winners and missing the quaddie by half a head. We have a strong list of competitive races for the Kalgoorlie Punters Guide today – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – MOJO BENCHMARK 55 HANDICAP 1560m

Very interesting race to kick off proceedings at Mackay today. The first race has one class dropper, however, this is a very open affair. There are three clear cut runners in this one, in Bawaardi Rocket, Wear The Fox Hat and Hyper Drive. Sonja Wiseman and Wear The Fox Hat ran a trial recently and it was rather unimpressive, but, knocked some cobwebs off headed into this one. The track suits, the distance maps suitable and being in the smaller field helps. Class shouldn’t be an issue and Wear The Fox Hat should be hard to beat today.

Top Pick – Wear The Fox Hat
No next bet – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 2 – MACKAY CASINO NIGHTS 3YO HANDICAP 1560m

Another small field here, with another tightly contested bunch of runners. The duo of Justin Stanley and Tony Button has been very strong recently in Northern Queensland, and, there is nothing to suggest they won’t be able to pair up for another win here in this one. Kings County is a strong horse with a big motor and, if it can get to the lead from the wide draw, will be extremely difficult to track down. One to beat here.

Top Pick – Kings County
No next best – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 3 – CHERYL GREEN TANNING BENCHMARK 70 1560m

A big opportunity here in another small field, for Justin Stanley to score an early race-to-race double here on Warwick Avenue. We have supported Mr.Boxvale many times of late, but, at his weight in this race, and the short back-up, Warwick Avenue has the edge here, who is dropping in class and retains winning jockey form last two rides. Expected to run well again today.

Top Pick – Warwick Avenue
No next best – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 4 – COAL MINE SERVICES MAIDEN HANDICAP 1200m

That’s Anna is the standout here, untested over this trip, but, finishing well on debut and looking for more ground would suggest the Benfica mare is up to the task here. Les Tilley returns to the saddle here which only brightens prospects. Southern Special can’t be overlooked here either. Impressive over last couple of runs, and hits the right distance and class here. Has a good turn of foot, and, runs to last races standards, should be too good here. Thunder is the value point in this race. Yet to really show its best, as a fourteen race journeyman, this could be the time it makes that step connections have been waiting for.

Top Pick – That’s Anna
Next Best – Southern Special
Longshot – Thunder

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 5 – MCDONALD MURPHY MACHINERY CLASS 3 1050m

Ryan Wiggins has his best ride of the day here in You Know The One, and, with the form of the horse, slight drop in class and turn of foot, will be right in this one. Wiggins won’t want to waste his best chance of the day, and, while there is a couple of horses that can challenge, it is the best horse in the field and, if ridden right, will be hard to beat. Sonja Wiseman has another challenger here in A Littlebitofmagic. Running light todya, and, making a slight jump in grade, has drawn a little wide, but, early speed compensates for this. One of the chances. Pietro Romeo has possibly the best value runner of the day here in Justflickinit. Currently trading well over the $50 barrier, has shown in its last race that closing speed isn’t an issue when at its best, and has winning jockey form that effort last-up here today. One to keep an eye on here.

Top Pick – You Know The One
Next Best – A Littlebitofmagic
Longshot – Justflickinit

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 6 – SMART STATE VEHICLE RENTALS 1300m

This here is a great chance for Justin Stanley to complete his treble on the day with Friendly Dragon, who has drawn well, drops slightly in grade from last race, and, isn’t carrying an excessive weight. Has shown great turn of foot and, on the home straight, has the sectionals to suggest that it can beat this field. Top chance here. Ryan Wiggins has the chance for a race-to-race double here on the current favourite – Worthy Hero. Unimpressive last start when finishing third behind the top pick here. Has a weight advantage here, and, can go better. Grand Emperor, despite the massive weight, needs to be included. Has won at big weight previously and gets the chance to show that same grit from two starts back. Could be a value point come jump time, as many may be turned away by the 63.5kgs.

Top Pick – Friendly Dragon
Next Best – Worthy Hero
Longshot/Value – Grand Emperor

TOP PICK
Mackay Punters Guide

Race 7 – TAIT & CO CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS 1200m

Durif is the shortest priced runner of the day here, and, it is in a beatable field – that could give Ryan Wiggins a realistic shot at a hat-trick, provided he wins the prior two chances. Durif has drawn poorly, and, carries a lot of weight, but, is coming in fresh, and will need to do better than last first-up tries, failing to win on both occasions. Getting the benefit of the doubt here, and, a bold run is expected. Jabrook is the next best here. Winner last start and won well. Drawn well, and will look to move forward early from the good gate. Distance is right and class is beatable, one of the chances. Prince Of Mine rates well, despite the tote figure. Won last race well, but, will need to show a little more to win today. Jockey change doesn’t help here, but, the horse has the ability to shock today.

Top Pick – Durif
Next Best – Jabrook
Longshot – Prince Of Mine

TOP PICK

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Quirindi

Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

After what can only be described as a dogs breakfast in racing over the weekend. The Punters Guide is back and looking to go big here at Quirindi. Let’s get stuck into this punters guide.

Race 1 – LIVERPOOL PLAINS CLASS 3 HANDICAP 1450m

The opener here is a small, but ultra competitive field. The short priced favourite here is Chicoltin, who is about ready to win, but, we are going to go with Skye Bogenhuber and Red Braids here. Last up, Red Braids over worked a little which opened the door for Lady Chaflont to burst through and take the race, this time around, the field should make her press as much as that one did, and, Red Braids will have every chance to go one better than a second last start here.

Top Pick – Red Braids
No next best – No Third Dividend

TOP PICK

Race 2 – COFFEE POT CATERING MAIDEN PLATE 1600m

Kristenesen is the obvious pick here on form – but, looking for a bit more value than what Kristensen offers – the Greg Ryan ride, Laranta maps well for this race at value. Has run well at this trip previously gets a top Sydney jockey in the saddle and will be comfortable here. Laranta is the value pick of this race if Kristensen should fail to fire today. Myriads with Josh Oliver riding is another to look out for. Again, if Kristensen fails to find its best here, Myriads wil be given every chance as it enjoys the distance and the conditions suit.

Top Pick – Kristensen
Next Best – Laranta
Longshot – Myriads

TOP PICK

Race 3 – BROWNING MOTORS BENCHMARK 56 1600m

Gibbons has been hit and miss for the Lees stable at the moment – but, he has the chance to hit here on familiar ride, La Bieri Choisie, who comes in with solid form, history of winning at distance and has won with Gibbons in the saddle previously. Maps well here and if Gibbons is in form – will prove hard to beat. The Outcast ridden by Travis Wolfgram has drawn perfectly to upset the favourite here, getting the gun run on the rail, that it will use to push forward early from. Front runners tend to have an easier trip at the Quirindi track, which only increases The Outcast’s prospects. Another ride from Josh Oliver here that shouldn’t be overlooked is the 9-year-old gelding, Apache Lad. Dropping in class steeply, winner at distance and class previously. Conditions favour here and a win certainly wouldn’t surprise.

Top Pick – La Bieri Choisie
Next Best – The Outcast
Longshot – Apache Lad

TOP PICK

Race 4 – QPP MEDIA MAIDEN HANDICAP 1200m

Another race here that doesn’t really show much value for punters – One Invincible Cat is another under evens shorty here that looks hard to beat. Another of the Gibbons/Lees combinations again here today – and this one could arguably be the best one. Coming in with sound form and being right on the cusp of a win. Second up today and ready to win. For something with a bit more value and the potential for the upset, Sunday Special has been in equally as good form as the short priced favourite some could argue. Ran in second on last two, strips fitter third up here and looks ready to go. A definite chance here. Something at much longer odds, that wouldn’t surprise if it won, is the Graham ridden, Sticks’N’Stones. Drawn terribly, but, has the ability to overcome this and push forward. The Bernardini filly has a lot of potential that it hasn’t yet shown. Big run wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – One Invincible Cat
Next Best – Sunday Special
Longshot – Sticks’N’Stones

TOP PICK

Race 5 – QUIRINDI AUTO BENCHMARK 59 1000m

Comingle pulled up lame at the end of its last race, so, last placing can be wiped from the memory, been given time to rest and recover and, if can find its second-up form here, is better than this field. Won by a neck over a similar distance on a strong run, if healthy, is the top chance this race. Sister Joy is another to watch out for here. Unimpressive last start, despite finishing third, and time before that was even worse. However, if we track back three races, the jockey last rode this horse, they won impressively. Expected to track on speed here today, and, if Sister Joy can hit the lead, will be hard to beat. The best of the rest here is Mac’s Reward. Dropping in class here, and, has winning jockey return to the saddle. Back to poeak distance and, looks ready to strike.

Top Pick – Comingle
Next Best – Sister Joy
Longshot/Value – Mac’s Reward

TOP PICK

Race 6 – TAB.COM.AU BENCHMARK 67 HANDICAP 1200m

Mr.Bonjove is the ride you want to be on here. Rachel Murray is riding well at the moment, and the favourite Kettering, has been underwhelming since resuming every start. Mr.Bonjove is coming into this one with a strong form line, and the Hinchinbrook sprinter should be competitive again like it was last up. Expecting it to go one better than last start. Abberation drops significantly in class today for this race, and should go well. Yet to win first up – but has hit the minors on two of three occasions and a first-up win could be on the cards here today. De La Hoya is the value horse here. Another of the first-up runners here today, dropping in class, and you can never discredit a Lonhro horse. One of the chances here today.

Top Pick – Mr.Bonjove
Next Best – Abberation
Longshot – De La Hoya

TOP PICK

Race 7 – TAB WE LOVE A BET CLASS 1 HANDICAP 1200m

Best ride of the day here for the young Jake Hall in Mystic Splendour, yet to be out of the podium on first three starts, has a tougher assignment here today, but, more than capable of taking it up. Was odds on favourite when winning last start, and, eyeing off the double here is achievable. Winner at distance previously, drawn a tricky barrier and will do well to not get caught wide, will look to push up early to counter this. Finne Realta is the next best here, however, it another of the top hopes with a dreadful barrier draw, well wide to start. Another of the horses here that will look to start fast and get to or near the lead, will do well to not over race early. Expect a bold run. Value horse here is Seize Them All. First up today and yet to win or place in this scenario, but, drawn the rail and should get a gun run throughout the race. Will look to ride midfield in cover, and, has every chance to push on late.

Top Pick – Mystic Splendour
Next Best – Finne Realta
Longshot – Seize Them All
