2015 Group 2 Launceston Cup heat tips & betting preview

SIX heats of the Group 2 Launceston Cup will be run and won in Tasmania tonight with the local chasers taking on some tough interstate competition.

The first four greyhounds from each heat will progress through to next Monday’s semi-finals before the $40,000-to-the-winner final on February 16.

Lets get into the preview for tonight’s qualifiers…

Heat One

Her Highness has been quite disappointing in her four runs since winning a heat of the Devonport Cup, however tonight she returns to a track where she has won five of nine and I can see her leading throughout in this event. She is armed with devastating early speed and this race doesn’t appear to have a lot of speed in it, so if she can get away cleanly she should get all the breaks.

Lillycette is absolutely flying and last time out she ran the hands off the clock when posting a breathtaking 25.81 Hobart win. If she reproduces that effort she will obviously win but my concern with her is that she can miss away and she may get too far back early.

Rory Mac has recorded two handy placings here of late and if he pings away he should run a big race again.

Quick Advance rounds out the chances, he should follow Her Highness across early and he should be in the mix throughout.

Heat Two

Ride The Rails is an absolute beast and from the pink draw he should be able to cross and lead and if he finds the bunny early he will be running some serious time. Last time out he was placed in the Group Two Warragul Cup final and on that occasion he was desperately unlucky, tonight he is drawn to get the breaks and if you can find a $1.60 that is massive overs.

Roxy Rhythm can be hard to follow but she has the good draw and she does have a great record here. She generally steps well and she does possess a good turn of foot, so that should allow her to settle in the top two or three early.

Bain’s Lane is all class and if he can step on terms he should put himself into contention. He can bomb the start at times so that’s a big concern but he has the speed to go with the pink if he steps with the rest of the field.

Wynburn Rush has strong place claims, she has a slick 29.89 PB and she returned to form with a dazzling 33.25 Devonport win last time.

Heat Three

Quality lineup set to do battle but Secret Spell is likely to go around at short odds and she should give Kelly Bravo another semi-finalist. She looks ideally drawn in the red and she comes here after scoring at the Meadows in a scintillating 29.77. She is having her first look at the track, so that’s a small concern but if she holds them out at the first bend it should be a matter of times and margins.

Brad Hill Billy is an exciting local and he had everyone talking when he recently posted a blistering 29.64 victory. That is the fastest time recorded over this trip for quite some time so he must be respected in this.

Yeah Right continues to improve with every run and he looked super impressive when winning here last time in 29.76, he is going to need some luck in the early stages but if he gets it he should be able to make an impact.

Sing The Song appears to be the only other hope, she is suited to the pink draw and she has been solidly placed in her past six starts.

Heat Four

Breaker’s Tip continues to impress and he has scored two powerful sub 30 second wins here in recent weeks. The box draw hasn’t done him any favours tonight but he does possess a wonderful turn of foot so if he is given galloping room in the first 50m he should be able to push through and lead at the first bend.

Lovely Banks should follow Breaker’s Tip across in the first 50m and she is flying at present. Last time out she reeled off a blistering second section in her 29.78 victory, if she reproduces that effort she will make the favourite work hard for victory.

Nooee’s Lad is a lid pinger and he has won 10 of 39 over this journey, he isn’t overly strong but he can find a fair bit when he finds the lure early.

Outside of those three I can’t see anything else really contending, maybe Mental As Ben could threaten for a place if he got away cleanly.

Heat Five

Senor Slamma isn’t the strongest of chasers but he is armed with ridiculous early and mid-race speed. If he pings away tonight he should be able to find the early lead and I’m expecting him to break them up mid-race, the last 40m is a concern but he should have built up a big enough lead to hold on.

One Dee is a classy Victorian and two starts back she showed explosive speed when scoring at The Meadows in 29.96. She is having her first look at the track so she will need some luck at the first bend but she is quite strong and if she can settle in the top three she will be right in the mix.

Bruny Venture is a gun sprinter and he has won here previously in a sizzling 29.84, he should be able to follow Senor Slamma across in the early stages and if he avoids trouble he will definitely put the pressure on him as they turn for home.

Mandy Charm can be hard to follow but she has enormous talent, if she goes around at silly odds she could be worth an investment as there is no doubting her ability.

Heat Six

Waymore Blues is a class act and he should give the Bravo team a fourth semi-finalist. He has done most of his recent racing over the 600m journey and that has allowed him to regain a lot of confidence and he is beginning a lot better than normal. The draw is a big disadvantage but he has a slow beginner on his outside so he should get every chance to drive through in the first 50 or 60m.

Black Sienna has the speed to lead and she should give a nice sight, she does get a little tired in the run home but she is an improving type and if they shuffle up behind her she might just steal the prize.

Hankos is better than his recent form reads and he has won here previously in a smart 29.90. He should settle in the top three early and he should be strong in the run home.

Cosmic Fire rounds out the chances, he returned to form with a brilliant 599m Hobart win and if he can get out into some open space early he will definitely make an impact.

Top Four: 5 – 7 – 3 – 4

Tears Siam is a full sister to the gun stayer Space Star and she isn’t too far off him talent wise. She is well placed out wide and she should get every chance to lead from the front mark. Three starts back she posted a sizzling 41.91 Sandown Park win and if she can reproduce that type of effort she would put a space in this lot.

Shall She Rock will give them a bit of a head start but she has a great record here and she should be able to drive through into a prominent position as they go past the post the first time.

Cambridge Prince has enough speed to settle in the top two early and if he does lead them up he should give them something to catch, he can be unreliable but he should get every chance from the front marker.

Berry Blitz rounds out the chances, she recently posted a strong 42.69 victory here and with some luck early she should be able to make an impact.

Targaryen has recently joined the powerful Robert Britton kennel and he comes here after scoring a brilliant 26.41 Bulli win on debut. On Wednesday he went around this track and trip and he was far from disgraced when finishing second. From the red tonight he should be able to push through and hold the early lead and I think if he finds the bunny early he will be running some serious time.

Bally Mo Town is armed with smart early speed and he broke through for a well deserved win at Shepparton in 25.68. He is likely to match motors with the red for most of the trip and he should hold on for the quinella spot.

Tantrum Tommy doesn’t win very often but he is very strong and he has been placed in seven of his 14 tries here, he might be a good anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Hakata Bale could be the value in the event, his recent form isn’t that great but he does possess early speed and if he finds the early lead he may prove hard to catch.

Neolisious is drawn perfectly in the red and she is improving with every start. Two starts back she overcame a slow start to score at Bendigo in 24.19 and tonight I am expecting her to begin a lot better and lead at the first turn. She isn’t known for her strength but she is hitting the line a lot better of late and this class should suit.

Dyna Brainiac has the class edge and he has been placed in five of his seven starts here to date. The box draw hasn’t done him any favours but he does muster speed well and he should be able to follow the three across in the run to the first bend.

Schumacher has a heap of talent and if he gains a clear run from the squeeze box he should be able to run a big race, he will go around at big odds and he could be the value.

Tiger’s Hero round out the chances, he has won two of his past three here and he does possess a great turn of speed soon after box rise.

Repayments is an exciting prospect who has won five of six to date and his latest victory was here in a blistering 29.87. His first sectional of 5.17 wasn’t overly impressive but he did bomb the start last time and from the red he should be able to begin a lot better. He is going to be quite short but it’s hard to tip against him so it may be worth anchoring him up front in your exotic bets.

Tiggerlong Fix is a highly talented speedster who has been sparingly raced to date. Last time out he showed dazzling mid race speed when posting a handy 30.22 and if he can begin well tonight he should give the favourite a minor scare.

Tiggerlong Ketut has enough speed to cross early and he should be able to improve on his smart 30.15 heat win, he got quite tired in the run home last week so he should be a lot better for that run.

Rashad Reason is well drawn nearer the inside and he should finish on strongly, he has been placed in seven of nine here and he shouldn’t be too far away again.

Beckenbauer is much better than his recent form reads and he should get every chance to regain some confidence from the favourable pink draw. Back in early December he posted two brilliant Sandown Park wins and since then he has continually found bother soon after the start, with a keen railer drawn underneath tonight he should get a nice cart across and he will prove very hard to hold out.

Crackerjack Rose is extremely consistent and she has led in her past three starts here, if she can step cleanly again she should be able to cross and find the bunny again. She isn’t overly strong but this is the weakest event she has contested for a while so if she leads she will give a great sight.

Mepunga Moss is much better than her recent form reads and she too will benefit from the drop in class, she has won four of 11 over this journey and she just needs a clear run early to regain some confidence.

Zell Bale rounds out the chances, I dont like his winning hopes from the middle pin but he can run home into the placings.

Love Affair has the good draw and she could be great value in this event. She tends to do her best racing at this track and trip and from wide draws she tends to begin a lot better than normal. Last week she stormed home after finding early bother and she was far from disgraced, tonight she should settle in the first half of the field and as they round for home she should be about to assume control.

Deadly Boy made his staying debut and after being headed early and finding bother he managed to plug on well and hit the line better than expected, from the red he should be able to punch through and hold the early lead and I think he is a different chaser when on the bunny.

Serash Bale was desperately unlucky in her heat and I would expect an improved performance tonight.

Big Kat was the fastest heat winner and if she pings the lids she will give them something to catch, my concern with her is that there is a heap of speed in this event and she might ease out at the first turn.

Kiltah Magic can lead them up but I think they will reel her in with about 60m to go.

Mepunga Hayley appears to be a few lengths off her best form at present but this is the easiest race she has contested for quite a while and if she finds the bunny early she should salute. She tends to begin well from wide draw and there doesn’t appear to be a lot of early speed in this event, she is a different chaser when on the bunny and if you can land $3.50 or better that is over the odds in this class.

Macca’s Sway hit the line solidly in his handy 34.57 victory here last week and from the red he should settle a bit closer to the speed than normal.

Coulta Rock should be suited by the drop back in distance and with the lack of speed around him, he should get every chance to settle in the top two and he can run time when given a clear run.

Cornelius Fudge is the only other chance, he has won two of three over this trip and he will benefit from the empty draw on his outside.

Crackerjack Max is a class sprinter in the making and he should prove hard to hold out based on his recent Wentworth Park win in a sizzling 29.79. On that occasion he flew to the first marker and never looked back, he will find it a little hard to cross from the pink tonight but there is very little speed directly underneath so he should be able to carve across.

Bottom Dollar showed a return to form at Ballarat last time with a strong 25.32 victory and if he can show that type of form again he should be right in this. The box draw is a disadvantage but he does have good speed and he has won three of six here.

Dyna Fancy should settle in the top two or three early and she is rarely far away in this company, I dont think she will win tonight but she should figure in the placings.

Great race and I think the speedy Oakvale Flyer should appreciate the rise in distance and she should give the two fancied runners something to catch. Her form at present reads quite ordinary but she is much better than that and last time out at Wentworth Park she was about to assume control before being knocked over. On the bend start she should be able to carve across to the early lead and I think she will have no trouble covering the distance.

Full On Bling has scored two devastating Sandown park wins in recent weeks and if he is given some room early he should make his presence felt. He was a tad disappointing here last week but that was his first look at the track and I’m willing to forgive him.

Untraceable is an absolute beast and if he is switched on he should get the cash, the concern with him is that he can lose focus at times and he does tend to find bother in his races, so from the wide draw he will need everything to go his way early.

Usain I’m Nutty is a highly promising chaser and he is armed with a powerful finish, last time out he showed a bit more early dash than normal at Sandown and that allowed him to score with ease in a blistering 29.45. If he gains a clear passage in the first 50m he should be too strong in the run to the line.

Dyna Nihilist has a ridiculous amount of ability but he doesn’t always show it, from the wide draw he should get plenty of room to muster speed and if he can settle mid pack he should make a strong bid for victory as they get near the finish line.

Pud should hold a forward spot early and she didn’t have much luck in her debut here on Wednesday, she has scored some slick Sandown wins and if she does hold them out she will prove hard to reel in.

Vermont has won three of five to date in commanding fashion and with a clear getaway tonight he should get every chance to lead throughout. Two starts back he showed a great turn of speed when scoring at Warrnambool in 25.30 and a similar effort here will see him figure prominently.

Scunitza Speed led for a long way when placed here two runs back and she should settle on the speed again, she isn’t overly strong but this is quite a weak race and she might be able to hold on.

Young Henry has plenty of gears and if he can get to the outside he will prove hard to hold out. Three runs back he set the Bendigo track alight with a brilliant 23.81 win.

Ulla Allen rounds out the chances, she will hit the line solidly and she tends to race well here.

Allen Icarus hasn’t won for a little while but he is dropping in class tonight and from the red he should prove too good for this lot. He has been placed in 12 of 21 here and with a clean getaway he should have enough early toe to hold them out.

White Walker is another who doesn’t win very often but he is more than capable, two runs back he was narrowly beaten at Sandown Park in solid time and a similar effort here should see him feature.

Nala’s Heart hit the line solidly when placed here last time and if she is given a clear run early she can play a part in the finish, she is better suited to a wider draw but she won’t be desperate to get to the outside.

8MISS SUEKO246729.67Justin King

Interesting race to kick off the night and I think we can find some value with the well drawn Miss Sueko. Her form reads pretty ordinary of late but she is much better than that and from the pink I think she will get every chance to land on the lure and she is a different chaser when she finds the front. She has a blistering 29.67 PB and a repeat of that effort will see her feature in the finish at odds.

Queen Esther is ultra reliable and she loves racing over this track and trip. She recently cracked the 100k mark in prize money and she showed that she is still capable of matching it with the best. The draw doesn’t help but she has speed to burn and she should put herself in to contention early.

Cosmic Angel is capable of just about anything but he can be very hard to follow, if he can step away cleanly he should find the rail early and he can then make a big impact.

Kiss The Hawk rounds out the chances, he has a good record here and he is drawn to be thereabouts.

8ZIPPING SAXON123630.03Jason Mackay

There are a few highly promising types in this event and I think the box draw is going to play a major role. Martin Clegg has the good draw and he has been smartly placed in his only two tries here. He should have enough speed to hold them out at the first bend and when out on his own he is capable of reeling off impressive sectionals.

Zipping Eastwood has scored some dazzling wins in his brief career to date and he musters speed at a great rate. Two starts back he found a heap of bother in the run but he still hit the line hard and went down narrowly in fast time here, he is suited to the wide draw and with an ounce of luck he will be in the finish.

Like his kennelmate, Zipping Saxon has also scored some blistering wins in his career and he must also be respected. I would prefer him drawn closer to the inside but he is far too good to totally dismiss.

Ikaku Bale rounds out the chances, he is an exciting Victorian sprinter who should atone for his luckless effort here last week.

Kerrigan Bale is presently racing in explosive fashion and if she steps on terms with the rest of the field I can’t see them getting past her. Last week she flew through the first marker in a sizzling 5.40 and a repeat of that effort would see her hold them out again. Her overall time of 29.81 was the fastest of the night and it’s really hard to see her missing out on making next week’s rich final.

Mepunga Treasure was far from disgraced in her heat effort here last week and she should run a solid race again, she should get a nice sit behind the red early and a top three finish is on the cards.

Jingjing is a promising speedster and she will continue to improve with more racing, I think she will find this beyond her but she should be a factor in better races in the coming months.

Polly Bale has been racing in good style of late and she will be very strong in the run home, she got held up at a crucial time in her heat and it was her first look at the track, so i would expect her to find a fair bit on that run.

Humming Birdhill is another talented Victorian and she can show smart early speed in her races, she will need to step cleanly to cross but if she does she should put herself into contention.

Winsome Mission is an explosive talent and he looks well placed in the wide draw. With the eight being a notoriously slow beginner and the six being a keen railer, he should get a clear run in the first 50m and that should allow him to swoop into the lead at the first bend. He was the most impressive heat winner from last week and he only needs a clear passage in the early stages to score.

His kennelmate Winsome Prince appears to be the main danger, he was luckless in his heat last week and with a better getaway tonight he should make a strong bid for victory. He has won 14 of 17 overall and four starts back he set the track alight here with a brilliant 29.72 win.

Dyna Tiber is a gun Victorian sprinter and he has the draw to feature, he was narrowly beaten in his heat and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

Rare Pearl rounds out the chances, he is a big talent but he is still learning to race and he will need some luck in running.

Weblec Belle has not won in her past six starts and she has been a tad disappointing. Last week she was slow to begin but she managed to hit the line strongly and she caught my eye when placed in her heat. From the red I am expecting her to ping the lids and land on the bunny and if she can hold the lead at the first bend she will prove almost impossible to reel in.

Assertive Bella has excelled since coming to NSW and she was a recent finalist in the Group One Paws Of Thunder. From the two box she should be able to rail into a prominent position early and if she can settle in the top two she will prove hard to hold out.

Spring Leaf is another Paws finalist and she smashed a handy lineup here last week when scoring in 29.91, she will need some luck at the first bend but if she gets it she will be right in the mix.

Kurmond Goddess could be the value in the event, she races well here and her recent efforts have been much better than they look on paper.

Fernando Bale is an absolute speed demon and from the red he should lead from go to whoa. Last week he absolute shanghaied out and went past the post the first time in a breathtaking 5.30, I’m not expecting him to go that again tonight but if he gets within a length and half of that run he will hold them out and eventually get the cash.

Jumble has a great record here and he can show explosive speed soon after box rise, he didn’t have a lot of luck in his heat last week and I am expecting an improved performance tonight.

Whittaker has won four of eight here and he recently qualified for the Group One Paws Final, he is poorly drawn out wide but if he can work across slowly he should be able to settle into a fairly prominent position mid race.

Dark Vito is a classy Tasmanian chaser and he should have derived a lot of benefit from his debut run here last week.

Zipping Abby is an absolute star in the making and she is drawn to get a great sit behind the speedy Megan Keeping. Last week she scored a strong 30.06 heat win but she has also scored here previously in a sizzling 29.66 and 29.74. With the speed underneath she should get a clear run early and she should be able to put an explosive time on the board.

Megan Keeping flew early in her great 30.04 heat win last week and she would have derived a lot of benefit from that run as it was her first try over 500m for quite some time. I still dont think she can run a genuine 500m but the way she runs the first 400m means that she will always be in contention as they turn for home.

Jayney Bale could be the value in the event, she was just average in her heat but she has scored some top Metro wins in Victoria and if she found her best form she is more than capable of matching it with these.

Zipping Midge rounds out the chances, she has turned in two great placings here of late and she is going from strength to strength.

This is the toughest race on the card and there are numerous chances. I have noticed that some agencies have the red at $12 in early markets and that is ridiculous overs. Talent wise, he has this field covered and although he is better suited to a wider draw, he may actually begin better from the red as he will sight the lure earlier. If he can get anywhere near his explosive 29.61 PB here he will prove extremely hard to hold out at nice odds.

Bad Boy Sniper is another who is well over the odds, he is currently quoted at the $5 mark and those odds are mind blowing considering that two runs back he won here in a scorching 29.54. Tonight he has no speed drawn on his outside and he should follow the speedy Prescribe across in the run to the first turn.

I’m a huge fan of Dyna Yemen and I would love to see him show his best tonight, my only concern with him is that he can miss the kick at times and it’s hard to give chasers of this calibre a start and beating.

The two Zipping chasers round out the chances, both have enormous talent but Zipping Carter is still learning and may need more time, whilst Zipping Oscar can be slow to begin and he will need a lot of luck in running.

Bessy Boo is returning to the staying journey and after four runs at Nowra over the 630m journey he should be primed and fully fit. Before dropping back and becoming a classy sprinter, he had won over this journey in a handy 42.42 and he is probably a better chaser this time around. There is still some doubt that he will run the trip but I’m going to give him the nod and say that he will run it out.

Smooth Number has been taking on some classy stayers of late and he is drawn to be in a prominent position throughout, he too isn’t overly strong in the run home but this race doesn’t have a great amount of depth.

Golden Gate scored a strong 42.52 win here three runs back and he should be respected again, unlike most of his opponents he actually runs a true 720m.

Joane loves racing over this track and trip and she has the speed to cross from the outside, I dont think she will win tonight but she is a must for your exotic bets.

Smoken Jimmy is an enormous talent and from the red he should get every chance to lead from go to whoa. He has won five of 15 career starts and he has posted some ridiculously fast times in those wins. If he lands on the bunny he should get near his 29.62 PB and that will see him win with ease.

Cawbourne Kayono has recorded two solid placings here of late and he should settle on the speed. He isn’t overly strong but, outside of the red, this race isn’t very strong.

Jack Kade must lead to win his races and if the red misses away he may find the lead and he could give a great sight at nice odds.

Gilgamesh rounds out the hopes, she was a slick 29.90 winner here in early December and she has enough early speed to put herself in contention as they negotiate the first turn.

2015 Group 1 Perth Cup and Galaxy heat tips & betting preview

CANNINGTON will be in the spotlight late on Saturday night with seven heats of the Group 1 Perth Cup and two heats of the Group 1 Galaxy taking centre stage.

Both races have attracted some star greyhounds from right across the country, indicating that we can expect an excellent night of racing from the west.

Lets get straight into the tips for the Perth Cup:

8LIVING PROOF234230.22Chris Halse

Perth Cup Heat One

Astronomize has won three of four over this trip and he is expected to start fairly short in this and win. After a luckless stint in Victoria when contesting the Silver Chief series, he returned here to WA and posted two brilliant Mandurah victories and one of those was a blistering 27.26. He should roll to the early lead and he should be running sub 30.20 on the bunny.

Cosmic Wise is better than her past three runs suggest and she is a recent finalist in the Melbourne and Sale Cups, she doesn’t have the same early zip that Astronomize has but if she can land in second spot she should give the favourite a scare as they approach the line.

Living Proof has been racing well without winning of late and he should get every chance to muster speed in the early stages.

Full Of Beans rounds out the chance, he can ping the lids and he has won 14 of 28 over this journey.

8LEROY’S MYSTERY1825NBTRoss Honor

Perth Cup Heat Two

This is a great heat and it looks a match race between the excitement machine Above All and speed demon Starlight Jack. I’m going to give the edge to Above All, he should be suited by the empty draw on his outside and he did have a look at the track here last week when he solo trialled in 30.30. The time wasn’t flashy but he would have derived a lot of benefit from that run and with a clear run I would expect him to go sub 30 seconds.

Starlight Jack looks the leader and he has won 10 of 16 over this journey. He has led in five of his past six starts and he does appear to be getting stronger with every run. If Above All lands behind him I dont think he can hold him out but if the favourite makes one small mistake he may just steal the prize.

Xtreme Knocka is suited to a rails draw and he has a slim chance, the concern with him is that he will be having his first look at the track and he is going to need some luck at the first bend.

West On Delly rounds out the chances, she has the speed to test Starlight Jack early and if she crosses she will give a great sight.

Perth Cup Heat Three

Deadly Vane is a gun Victorian chaser and he showed that he has no trouble running out this journey when scoring at Sandown two runs back in a sizzling 29.29. There is very little speed drawn underneath him tonight, so if he can get away cleanly he should drive to the early lead and with the lack of depth in this heat I can’t see him being run down.

Musquin Bale is a veteran chaser but he is still going extremely well and if he steps cleanly he will be a major player. He has won here previously in solid time and unlike most of the chasers in this event, he runs out a strong 530m.

Romeo’s Comet has scored two great 642m wins here of late and that will have boosted his confidence immensely. If he can getaway cleanly tonight he should be right in the mix as they head for the back straight and he should run a big race.

Perth Cup Heat Four

This is one of the most exciting heats of the night with Quartz Bale and Allen Deed set to do battle. Allen Deed has the perfect draw out wide and with a slow beginner on his outside he should get every chance to settle in the top two as they head into the first bend. He trialled here last week in 30.29 and with Quartz Bale expected to set a cracking pace, that should pave the way for Allen Deed to reel him in and stop the clock in under 30.

Quartz Bale has won nine of ten here and he is going to give a great sight again. He has had around five weeks off and being fresh he should fire out of the boxes and he will be reeling off sensational sectionals. I’m guessing that he may go a little too quick in the middle stages and he may be a sitting duck for Allen Deed as they turn for home.

Free Candy is in great form at present, I dont think she is good enough to go with the top two picks but she can run home into a placing.

Perth Cup Heat Five

Star Recall is all class and she just keeps on winning, she is a faultless beginner and once she hits the ground she goes into overdrive. She recently capture the Sale Cup over 650m but she showed she can still sprint with a strong 30.16 win here last week. She has slow beginners on either side tonight so she should drive to the early lead again and they won’t get near her.

Droopy’s Bentley is a serious talent and he is perfectly drawn in the pink. He trialled here last week in 30.42 and I’m expecting him to find at least three lengths on that run. Gone To Heaven is likely to move left at box rise, so that should give him the perfect cart across and if Star Recall makes a mistake early he will be off and gone with the prize.

On Coin has been a great chaser for a long time but in his two runs from a spell he appears to be a fair way off his best. From the red he must still be respected and if he can hold them out early he may just find a few lengths on the bunny.

Perth Cup Heat Six

Tureaud is another local star and he should continue the strong representation for Paul Stuart. Three starts back he posted a dazzling 29.72 Meadows victory and on that occasion he posted ridiculous sectionals. Tonight he is second up after a month off and I am expecting him to pounce on the bunny and they won’t get near him as he will be running around the 30 flat mark.

All Strung Out has excelled since moving to WA and if he can repeat his 30.21 winning effort from two runs back he will prove hard to hold out. He isn’t the best of beginners but from the pink he should get plenty of room to muster speed in the run to the first time.

Whodat Knockin’ has the good draw and he is a classy Victorian, I think he may get burnt off early but he should rail through into a prominent position mid race and he should take home some minor money.

Perth Cup Heat Seven

Last chance to qualify and it should be another match race between two absolute stars in Dyna Double One and My Bro Fabio. I’m giving the edge to Dyne Double One, I think he is potentially the fastest chaser on the planet and he does it at both ends. He trialled here last week in a solid 30.35 but I’m expecting him to find the bunny early tonight and I believe a sub 29.90 run is definitely on the cards.

My Bro Fabio scored a commanding 29.27 Sandown win last time after coming from last, in that event he got to the outside and was pretty much untouched for most of the journey and he just proved too strong. Tonight he is going to be giving Dyna Double One a big head start and I dont think he will be able to reel him in, so the quinella spot looks likely. This is probably going to be the fastest heat so if he can get close to Dyna Double One he should do enough to grab the eighth and final spot in the final.

Burundi has the good draw and he can maybe sneak into third place.

Great lineup and although Space Star is poorly drawn I think he should be good enough to win after overcoming some early difficulties. Last week he trialled over the 642m journey and he posted a blistering 37.09. The speed appears to be drawn out wide in this event so if he can step on terms he should be able to drive through and hold them out in the run to the first turn and if he does lead they won’t get near him.

Takahashi is an enormous talent and she has won eight of 11 over this journey. She should have enough speed to settle in the top two and if she is close to Space Star as they pass the post the first time she will definitely give him something to think about.

Expect A Guess is a classy local and she has the speed to lead, I dont think she can hold out the top picks but she can hold on for a place.

Blinker’s On must be respected, he has loads of talent but he can find bother in his races, if he stays out of trouble he will take a power of beating.

Lady Toy has recently joined the powerful Ennis kennel and she has found a leg. Her effort to score at Sandown last time in 34.13 was super impressive and she is obviously better suited to this journey. The empty draw underneath will definitely suit and with some luck in running she should get the cash.

Ash Flash is ideally drawn out wide and she has a wonderful record over this journey. She showed she is at peak fitness and form with a brilliant 41.83 win here last time and with an even getaway she should be right in the mix.

My Mate Cobber will set the pace and he is getting stronger with every run, he has posted two impressive sub 42 second wins here of late and if the fancied runners happen to find bother he may just steal the prize.

Starc is a classy stayer in his own right and it took a monster effort from Space Star to reel him in last time out at Wentworth Park. If he handles the track at his first look he should run a great race.

8INNER CITY7247NBTChristine Proctor

Only a small field set to do battle but I think we can find some value with Inner City to finish in the top two. He is making his staying debut tonight but I am expecting him to find the early lead and there doesn’t appear to be a lot of staying depth in this event. He likes to scout wide in his races and the manner in which he hits the line over 520m suggests he will run a fairly strong 650m and if he has a big enough lead he should hang on over the last 70m.

Flamin’ Go has scored some very fast 600m wins in her brief career to date and she should give a great sight. I’m expecting her to match motors with or sit just behind Inner City for most of the journey. Like my top pick, she is a doubt to run the trip but both should be a long way ahead of the pack mid race.

Gazza’s Angel could be the value, she is much better than her recent form reads and she will be suited by the rails draw.

Crowie’s Chance looks well placed in the red draw and he should get the cash if he can hold them out in the run to the first bend. This race has a bit of speed engaged in it but the other likely leaders like to use plenty of the track so he should get all the breaks in the run to the first bend. Four starts back he posted a sizzling 25.90 Bathurst win and a repeat of that will see him figure in the finish.

Knight Sprite turned in a strong effort when placed here last time and if he can get across from the wide draw he should figure prominently, prior to his placing he had posted three impressive Wauchope wins over the 457m journey.

Priceless has won five of eight to date and he should have Unbroken run some cover for him into the first turn, he isn’t overly strong in the run home but he should hang on for a place.

Wide open affair to kick off the night but if Aston Wingard can step on terms he should have the speed to cross at the first turn. He isn’t overly strong but he has won four of five over this trip and he tends to break up the field with his lightning mid-race pace.

Lochinvar Akira returned to her brilliant best with a blistering 29.77 win here last week and tonight she exits the same draw. My only concern with her tonight is that there is a lot more early speed drawn underneath tonight so she may get posted wide at the first bend.

Young Gun Mcbain has the good draw and he has a top record here, he has the speed to hold them out and if Aston Wingard misses away he may getaway mid race.

My Party is flying at present and if he gains a clear run early he will be right in the mix.

Long Gully Mark is in career best form and with a wide runner drawn on his outside he should be afforded all the breaks in the run to the first turn, he can be a little slow to begin but he does muster speed quickly and he should settle in the first half of the field.

Red Can is hard to follow but he has a heap of talent. He will be looking to get wide early but if he can avoid early bother and settle mid field he may just swoop over the top of them late in the race.

King Chaos resumed from a spell with a slick 22.27 win here over 388m and he is drawn to lead for a long way, however the last 50m is a big query with him.

Master Bekim could be the value in the event, he turned in a strong effort when placed here on Monday and he will be running home strongly again.

Luna Jinx is a classy stayer and she should make up for her luckless effort here last week. After beginning well she was pushed wide at the second turn and she lost her momentum. From the red tonight she should be able to boot through and hold them out and if she finds the bunny tonight I can’t see them running her down.

Psychotic Gold is aiming for a hat trick of wins and she was super impressive in her win here last week. The small field should suit her and if she can land behind Luna Jinx it should be an almighty battle to the line.

Gizmo The Great is a former QLD chaser who has a heap of talent but he doesn’t always show it.

Zara Mclaren is the only other place hope, she has won two of her past three and she has a great record over this track and trip

Destiny Bale recorded an impressive 30.20 win here two runs back and she went even quicker when placed here last week. From the rails draw she should have sufficient speed to hold them out early and she will prove hard to reel in running around the 30 flat mark on the bunny.

Fast Noodle is former QLD chaser and he is blessed with explosive speed when fit. He hasn’t raced for three months after hitting the deck at Geelong but he is in good hands and he is expected to turn in a bold showing fresh.

Asuka Bale has the good draw and she will be strong in the run home, I dont think she is good enough to win but she should sneak home into a place.

Spring Tyson is the interesting runner, she has been struggling of late but she can show explosive early speed and she is a different chaser when on the bunny.

Black Daddy is well placed in the pink draw and he is due for a change of luck. He isn’t brilliant early but there is very little speed drawn underneath him so he should get a fairly clear passage in the run to the first turn. He has won over the 600m journey here in slick time and this really looks his race.

See Him First is a former classy Victorian chaser and he is now a member of the powerful Jovanovic kennel. He hasn’t raced for nearly a month but outside of the pink this is quite a weak race so he doesn’t need to be 100% fit to feature.

Hot Sauce flew around the short course here recently in 22.33 and he should lead for a long way, his last 70m is a worry but he might be able to hold on for a place.

Rum Punch is another who won over the short course recently and he should be a little stronger in the run home.

Cash In Looper has the good draw and he has been desperately unlucky in his two recent placings here. Tonight he has a wide runner on his outside and slow beginners drawn on either side, so if he can step away on terms he should be able to drive through into a prominent position at the first turn.

Freesia Bale has been racing in consistent style with four placings from her five SA runs and amazingly they have been over three different distances. She should have the speed to settle in a forward spot and I would expect her to take home some of the money.

Zac Bale has the perfect draw and he should run a big race, I think he will get burnt off early but he should be running home into a place.

Woodside Jagger and Good Odds Punk round out the place chances, they race well here and both have enough speed to lead.

Excusez Moi was knocked over at a crucial stage here last week and tonight she should be able to make amends. Since coming to SA she has turned in four very solid performances and with a slow beginner on her outside tonight I can see her finding the early lead and proving hard to run down.

Elay Galaxy made an impressive debut here last week with a strong 30.25 win and he looked a little lost through the turns so I would expect him to find a length or two on that run.

Set The Scene is a beast when he is switched on and he should be suited to the wide draw, he can make a lot of mistakes in his races but he is capable of reeling off breathtaking times when given a clear run.

Allen Nemo is the only other winning prospect, he is a strong type and he returned to form last time with a win over 600m.

Great race with a number of chances and I’ve decided to go with the speedy and in form Gun Mcbain. He is flying at present and with the seven being a fast beginner and desperate railer, he appears drawn to get a beautiful cart across and that should allow him to find the early lead. He was never really strong in his races, however in the past month or so he has really been finding the line well.

Van Carrho Flash is hit or miss early but he tends to step well from wide draws and if he can get away cleanly he will have sufficient speed to cross them early, he will need to lead to win but he is likely to be value and he may be worth a bet.

Dyna Vank turned in a great performance when placed here last week and he should run a big race again.

Alderley Reform has a great record here and he is all class, the box draw is a big concern but he is good enough to overcome difficulties in running.

Grifter Bale has the perfect draw and with a clear run early he should blow them away. He has won over this track and trip from the draw and he tends to show a lot more early zip from wider draws, he turned in a massive effort here on Monday after he was polaxed at the start and he really looks the goods in this event.

He’s A Villian has the good draw and he was far from disgraced when placed over this trip three runs back, from the red he should be able to settle in the top three early and he is quite strong in the run home.

Beach Wary has the class edge and he flew around the 515m journey last week when posting a sizzling 29.71. The box draw is against him tonight but if he happens to ping they won’t know which way he went.

Victa Scott can show early speed and he rounds out the chances, I dont think he can win but he can hold on for a place.

Tough race but I think the early speed of Stately Kay will play a big factor. On Monday he pounced on the early lead and he plugged on quite well when narrowly beaten by Bianca Bale. Tonight’s race features no early speed at all so he should get a cheap lead and he will give them something to catch.

Keller Bale scored two strong wins here recently and he should be there at the end tonight. He is going to need some luck in running but if he gets it he could be the value in the event.

Parsec Bale is a promising type and she must be respected, I would prefer her from a wider draw but from the red she may be able to push through into a more prominent position early.

Oran Bale is the only other winning hope, she is armed with a monster finish and she has been racing in good company of late.

Another difficult race but I think Necro Bale looks well placed and I’m expecting him to burn them off early and score. Two starts back he showed smart early speed before being narrowly beaten by the talented Getty Bale, if he can turn in a similar effort tonight he should prove hard to reel in.

Nikita Kahn caught the eye with an impressive all the way win here in 30.09 last time and if she steps cleanly from the red she should take some catching. Her win last time was a big improvement from her previous form so I need to see her do it again to be convinced about her true ability.

Irish Midge rarely wins but she is never far away, she has been placed in 16 of 24 here and she could be a great anchor for second and third in your exotic bets.

Bianca Bale rounds out the hopes, she has the speed to cross and if she does she will prove hard to hold out.

Renouf’s Magic has had little luck since his impressive debut win here and with a clean getaway tonight he should be able to return to the winner’s list. He is armed with blinding early speed and this race seems to lack early pace. He meets a handy one in Swift Pirate but I expect that he will be a long way in front of him mid-race.

Swift Pirate powered to the line in his recent 30.05 and with an ounce of luck early he should be figuring in the finish, his lack of early speed is a big concern but if he can get out into the open he does possess a wonderful turn of foot.

Midnight Tammy is in good hands and she does have a zippy 30.17 victory here to her credit, she will need to settle on the speed to win but there is very little speed underneath her so she should get every chance.

Flaunt It rounds out the chances, she resumes after three months off but she did show a lot of talent when last in work.

Fast Bean can be very unreliable at times but he appears perfectly placed in the pink draw and with a good getaway he should have the speed to get across in the run to the first turn. Four starts back he went through the first marker in a brilliant 5.58 before scoring in a more than handy 30.16. If he can turn in a similar effort tonight he will take a power of beating.

Cheeky Freyer hasn’t had much luck in recent weeks and she should appreciate the drop in class tonight. She isn’t great to begin but she does muster well once she hits the ground and she should be able to settle in a prominent position.

Georgina has been placed in five of eight here and she shouldn’t be too far away again, whilst Below Par has the good draw and he turned in a strong effort when placed here last week.

Bradley Benz recorded his last victory from this draw and with the lack of speed drawn on his outside tonight he looks poised to win again. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does muster speed quickly and he should be able to drive through at the first turn and hold them out- if he finds the lure I can’t see them reeling him in.

Hard Luck is suited by the widish draw and if he can avoid bother early he should be a major player. He tends to bomb the start and then zoom around the field, there is a fair bit of speed around him tonight so he should get every chance to hook to the outside early.

Boss Number Four broke through for an impressive 30.22 victory here last time and he should continue to improve.

Elusive Desire is one of the most talented chasers in the event but he lacks early speed and he doesn’t like to be crowded, he is obviously a winning chance but he will need a few things to go his way.

Hougenie loves racing over this track and trip and she appears perfectly drawn in the pink, after a string of placings over this trip she finally returned to the winners list with a slick 34.94 win last week. There doesn’t appear to be a heap of speed directly underneath so she should be able to get across and I would expect her to sit just behind the speedy Clash Of Kings early.

Clash Of Kings is the interesting runner, the classy Victorian is making his middle distance debut and he gives every indication that this trip will suit. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does burn soon after box rise and I would expect him to assume control early and break up the field mid-race. The last 50m is a small concern but I think he will get the trip.

Come On Fantasy will be well fancied, two starts back she set the track alight here when winning in a breathtaking 34.64, if she reproduces that type of effort she will take a power of beating.

Good Call Paul rounds out the chances, he produced a strong effort when placed here last week and he only needs luck early to feature.

Another great lineup and its hard to look past the well drawn Rue De Kahn. Two starts back she made her middle distance debut at Dapto and she was never headed when posting a smart 34.54. From the red tonight she should punch through and hold them out early and I can’t see them reeling her in when she is running around the 34.90 mark.

Ralphy Cinel is much better than his recent form reads and he should get a nice sit on Rue De Kahn early, he is quite strong in the run home so if he is close to her off the back straight he may give her a fright as they reach the line.

Mister To Us is the run on type and he must be included in your exotics, I dont think he can win but he might be able to pick off a few of the tiring runners in the home straight.

Sheridon is absolutely flying at the minute and if he gets across he then becomes a serious winning chance.

7BUCK CITY321135.00Selena Zammit
8MULLAWAY223134.62Joanne Price

Mullaway is an absolute speed demon and if he can cross from the wide draw he should put a space in them. He has won four of seven over this journey and he showed that he is back to his best with a blistering 37.12 Lismore win and the impressive part of that win was that he made the talented Tuavasa Shek look second rate.

Buck City should bring Mullaway across in the early stages and he is aiming for a hat trick of impressive wins. He has gone around the 35 flat mark in both of his wins and a similar effort tonight will see him finish in the top two.

Farmer’s Gold is a big talent and if he can avoid early bother he should figure in the finish, he has terrible box manners but over this journey he should settle a lot closer to the speed.

Top Four: 8 – 7 – 2 – 6

Grand Roman has won 12 races over this journey and he doesn’t appear too badly drawn in the middle. With a pacey beginner drawn underneath he should get a clear passage in the run to the first turn and I would expect him to assume control as they head into the back straight. He is a very fast chaser on the bunny and I would expect him to win if he finds the lead mid race.

Abby’s Fantasy is drawn to hold them out at the first bend and she should be able to hold on quite well. She has raced against good company of late and this is the weakest event she has contested for a while.

Gumlow Star is better than her form reads and she will be hitting the line quite well, she is likely to be double figures and she could be the value.

Chariot’s Offiah has a top record here and he could run a nice race at odds.

Great race and it’s hard to look past gun sprinter Flash Reality after he returned to form with a brilliant 29.90 win here last week. He is generally pretty reliable early and he musters pace at a great rate soon after box rise, if he can find himself in the top three at the first bend he should prove far too classy for his rivals.

Dream River has the good draw and he is racing extremely well. With the wide running You Can Talk on his outside he should be afforded all the breaks early and I would expect him to finish in the top three.

Cyndie’s Special is very reliable and she is never far away in this company, if she can step cleanly she should put herself in contention early and she will be very strong in the run home.

She’s Too Hot is flying at present and after two blistering 431m Ipswich wins she should be ready to bring that form to town. She has won twice over this track and trip previously and I would expect her to be able to improve on her already impressive 30.12 PB run.

Stella Nights has the class edge and if she is given room early she will take a power of beating, I’m a bit concerned about the rails draw but she can step away cleanly at times and from the red she might be able to settle a little closer than normal.

Don’t Go Quietly scored an impressive 30.18 win here two runs back and he should be in the mix again, his box manners aren’t great but he does muster speed quickly.

Hazy Jane rounds out the chances, she has won two of four here and she has the speed to get across.

Bremer is a reliable beginner and he recently caught the eye when posting a brilliant 29.83 victory here. He has only had the two runs in Qld and I would expect him to continue to improve, there is no speed at all on his outside so he should roll to the early lead and I can’t see them getting near him.

Astound Ya has the good draw and he returned to form with a solid 30.81 Ipswich win, he doesn’t have a great record here but he should settle in a prominent spot early and I would expect him to be in the money.

Grim Creeper is extremely hard to follow but he has a heap of talent, if they happen to shuffle up in the lead, look for him to be swooping home over the top.

Birkdale Beauty rounds out the chances, she is rising in class after two solid wins here but she has early speed and if she finds the lead she will give a great sight.

Angel Of Music is armed with blistering early speed and if she can step cleanly she should get every chance to lead throughout. She has recorded two handy placings here of late and this is clearly the easiest race that she has contested for some time. She isn’t overly strong at the end but I would expect her to build up a big lead mid-race.

Our Spinner could be the value in the race, he is suitably drawn out wide and he was far from disgraced when placed here last week. Last time out he posted an impressive 5.04 to the first marker and a repeat of that would see him sit outside or just behind Angel Of Music for most of the journey.

Laurie’s Chance doesn’t win very often but he is a must for the exotics, he is likely to settle back in the field early but he does have good mid race pace and he will be strong in the run home.

Sir Tex rounds out the chances, he recently won the VBIS series at Warragul and he appears to be getting better with every start.

Eyeful Of Bling is racing in good form at present and he should be better for the run here last time when making his debut over this trip. On that occasion he was a tad slow to begin and he found bother mid race, however he still kept coming in the home straight and only went down by three and a bit lengths. Tonight I would expect him to settle a lot closer to the speed and he should assume control mid race.

Tekki Minx has been placed in her past eight starts and she should be in the mix again, the box draw doesn’t help but she has raced well from wide draws in her past three runs and if she can settle in the top two or three early she might get her chance to break through.

Trip To Cairns has scored two impressive wins at The Meadows in recent months and she has the speed to lead them up, she can be hit or miss early but if she steps away she might just lead all the way.

Vernon Bale is the only other real winning hope, he is in great form and he continues to get stronger with every start.

9CHECHEZZ [5]25357NBTA O’keefe (Giffard West)

Gaucho is an exciting prospect and if he brings his provincial form to town, he will blow them away. Two starts back he scorched around Bendigo when posting a breathtaking 23.59 victory and he followed that effort up with a brilliant 23.64 win. There isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn around him so he really does look to be a good thing, he will be short so it might be best to anchor him up front in the exotics.

Image Puzzle has brilliant early speed and she has won here previously in a solid 29.88, she obviously lacks the brilliance of the favourite but if Gaucho happens to find early bother she may be off and gone with the prize.

Sutton Club could be the value, three starts back he turned in a monster effort to score at Shepparton in 25.79 and a race of this calibre is not beyond him.

Axis Bale is a big talent when on song and he showed a return to form at The Meadows when placed last time, he tends to do his best racing here and he may be worth an each way ticket if he goes around at silly odds.

Blue Giant isn’t the most reliable conveyance but he has a massive engine and if he is given room in the first 50m he should blow this field away. Three starts back he unleashed a powerful finish to win here in 29.51 and his two subsequent runs have been impressive in FFA class. From the red he should settle a bit closer to the speed than normal and he will then go into overdrive mid-race.

Shanlyn Patch has a solid record here and he turned in a strong effort when placed here last week. He should be suited by the empty draw on his outside and if he runs his normal first section he should be in the top two early on.

He Isn’t Really could be the value, he is very hit or miss early but when he steps away he is capable of running good times. Three starts back he was placed behind the exciting Fernando Bale at the Meadows over 525m and that type of effort would see him be competitive here.

Dyna Fulcrum has been racing well and he must be included in your exotics, I dont think he can win but he is drawn to be thereabouts.

The well-named Noosa Rocket is aiming for eight wins on the trot and with any sort of luck he should win. Last time out he made his metro debut and he went through the first marker in a sizzling 5.02 and he then posted a brilliant 29.41 overall. If he can turn in a similar effort tonight he should win with ease.

Benta Bale has won two in a row and although they were from the red draw she does look well placed again tonight. She has shown good early speed in her two recent wins and if she can show similar speed tonight she should settle in the first half of the field and she will be strong in the run to the line.

Barksdale caught the eye with a solid placing behind Noosa Rocket and he would have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

Dyna Chaser is a must for your exotic bets, he lacks mid-race pace but he finishes on well and he has been placed in six of seven over this journey.

Opec Bale, which recently received a Zoom Top invite, has been extremely unlucky in recent weeks and from the pink draw he should be able to return to the winners list tonight. Three starts back he stepped cleanly and led all the way when recording a blistering 42.45 at The Meadows and he should be better suited to this track.

Footluce Diva should set the pace and if she can handle the extra distance she will prove extremely hard to reel in. In recent weeks she has posted two devastating wins here over the 595m journey and she has hit the line quite well in both of those wins.

Lites And Sirens will unwind a big finish and she recently won here in a solid 42.04. I dont think she can win tonight but she might be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Double Rinse is probably the only other winning hope, she is poorly drawn but she did record a strong 720m Wentworth Park win last time out.

Dawkins Bale is a serious up and comer and his effort last time out in a heat of the Warragul Cup was enormous. His box manners aren’t great but he has a fast beginner drawn on his inside and a slow beginner on his outer, so if he can step cleanly he should get more than enough room to drive through early. He has a handy 29.56 PB over this trip but I think with a clear run he could easily break the 29.25 mark.

Miss Cersei continues to improve and she has the gun draw, last week she flew early in her smart 29.54 win and a repeat of that effort will see her give the favourite something to catch.

Humphrey Bale has been competing at the top level for quite some time and he is still racing well, last week he was going to settle in a prominent position before finding bother, if he can avoid bother at the first turn tonight he could run a race at odds.

Maximus Glider finally returned to the winners list last week and he shouldn’t be too far away again, he is likely to get too far back early to win but he can sneak into some minor money.

Lamia Bale looked impressive when placed behind My Bro Fabio here last week and if she can ping the lids again she will prove extremely hard to reel in. She has a tremendous record over this trip and with slow beginners drawn on either side she should be afforded all the breaks in the run to the first turn.

Sisco Rage is in career best form and his effort behind Caustic Bale two runs back was enormous. He hasn’t drawn too well tonight but if he can settle in the first half of the field he should make his presence felt.

Margins continues to impress and he charged home to score here last week in 29.49, he is going to need luck in running again so maybe place claims look best for him tonight.

Buckle Up Mason is a few lengths off his best at present but from the red draw he can still be a factor.

Rocket Ready has some serious talent and he comes to Victoria with some slick wins to his credit. He has recently joined the powerful Ennis camp and I’m sure they will have him ready to fire. The red draw isn’t a great because he will look to get wide early but if he happens to get through the turn safely he will take a power of beating.

Miss Mayflower wasn’t disgraced when placed here last time and she should be able to roll to the early lead. If the red lands on her back I dont think she can hold him out but if he happens to find bother she should set up a nice break mid-race and she will prove hard to reel in.

Blistering Bob can be hard to follow but he has the good draw and he can show smart early speed at times, if he can step cleanly he should run a nice race at odds.

Lektra Utopia was placed behind a gun sprinter here two runs back and he has the speed to cross and lead.

We’re Off Here is a very reliable beginner and he caught the eye with a strong 29.63 victory here recently. He will need to lead to win again but there isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn in boxes one to three and he should have the speed to hold out the outside division. There are a couple of handy ones in this so you might get some value at around the $3.50 mark.

Bogner Bale has turned in two great performances at The Meadows in recent weeks and he is drawn to get a nice cart across early. If he was drawn inside the four he would be my top pick but I’m a little concerned that he might be posted a little wide early.

Jubilea Bale was a recent finalist in the Warragul Cup and she loves racing here, I dont think she has the speed to cross but if she can settle in the first half she should be there at the end.

Narralee recently sizzled in a heat of the Group Two Warragul Cup and she was never out of trouble in the final, from the pink tonight she should be able to cross and lead them easily. I can’t see them running her down when she is posting a sub 29.40 run on the bunny.

Samus Allen turned in a strong effort when placed here last week and she should run a big race again, she is normally a reliable beginner so if she can step cleanly and camp behind Narralee early she should give the favourite a run for her money.

Andiamo Neo continues to improve and he has been placed in five of eight over this trip, he is quite strong in the run home and he looks a great place prospect.

Six Green Thumbs showed a dazzling turn of foot in his recent 30.41 Cranbourne win and with a keen railer drawn in box seven he should get a nice cart across in the early stages. He has won two of four over this trip and he appears to have everything going for him.

Dyna Keitaro has the class edge and if he can cross in the early stages he will take a power of beating. He was a brilliant 30.10 Meadows winner two runs back but the only concern is that he may move a little left soon after box rise.

Dyna Fatbob is much better than his recent form reads and he could be the value in the event, whilst Be Two Bomber has enough speed to settle in the top three early and he could hold on for a place.

Cosmic Illusion is probably better suited to a wider draw but she is airborne at present and if she can step cleanly she should have sufficient speed to hold them out and then boot away mid-race. She has won seven of 14 over this journey and her two most recent wins have been in sizzling times. If she can step on terms she should lead all the way.

Fear Mitch can be hard to follow but he has the favourable draw and he is capable of reeling off brilliant sectionals when given a clear run, there is a fair bit of speed underneath but if they crash to the fence early he should get a nice cart across.

Yes Chef is better than his most recent form suggests and he must be respected, prior to his past three defeats he did post four brilliant wins on the trot.

Emerley Lover is the interesting runner, he is resuming from around three and half months off and he should be ready to fire fresh.

Funky Chicken is much better than his recent form reads and he should be suited by the drop in class. He is likely to settle back in the field but with the abundance of early speed drawn underneath he should be able to lob onto the rail and he should then find himself in a prominent position mid race.

Heston’s Guess is stepping up in distance and he is ideally placed in the pink draw, he is normally slow to begin but he musters speed well and he should get plenty of room in the early stages. He is a little doubt to run the trip but he should give them something to catch.

Dyna Prankster comes here with strong Victorian form and she should run a forward race, she is coming off a three month spell so there might be some injury concerns with her.

Nevada Smith rounds out the chances, he has a top record here and he should settle in a prominent position early.

8GO GO TREETMENT [5]13FSHJ Karamatic (Lara)

Hula is a member of a highly promising litter and she finally delivered at Warrnambool last time after three steady efforts. Last time out she showed great early speed when posting a speedy 25.59 and if she can show similar early speed tonight she should be able to lead throughout again. The last 50m is a concern but if she holds them out she should be able to build a nice lead mid race.

Zabimaru Bale has been placed in all five tries here and two of those efforts have been strong wins. He isn’t favourably drawn out wide but the six has a bit of speed early and that should give him a nice cart across in the early stages.

Tiger’s Hero has won two on the trot here and his winning time of 30.22 last time was a big improvement on his previous win and he appears to be going from strength to strength.

Go Go Treatment scored a brilliant 25.83 Geelong win on debut and if she can handle the track at her first look she can play a major role.

Got The Picture didn’t have a lot of luck when placed here last time but at his start prior he did post an impressive and powerful 30.24 Cranbourne win. Tonight he has slow beginners drawn on either side so he should get every chance to drive through and find the early lead and he is a very fast chaser when on the lure.

Axis Bale has the class edge and he is much better than his recent form reads. In recent weeks he has been racing in open class and he hasn’t had a lot of luck in running. He is suitably drawn nearer the inside and if he can settle in a prominent position he will take a power of beating.

Vermont has won three of four in his brief career and his latest win at Warrnambool in 25.30 was eye catching, this is his toughest test to date but he looks up to the challenge.

Satsuki Bale is dropping considerably in class tonight and with a clean getaway she should get the cash. In recent weeks she has taken on some classy speedsters and she hasn’t had much luck soon after box rise, tonight there doesn’t appear to be much speed drawn around her and she should get all the breaks in the run to the first turn.

Earl Bale should match motors with Satsuki Bale for most of the journey and he is getting a little stronger with every run, if he doesn’t cross to the lead then he can’t win, but if he sits behind the leader he should be able to hang on for the quinella spot.

Watch My Path turned in a great effort when placed at Sandown last time and a similar effort tonight will see her figure prominently.

Nala’s Heart is the interesting runner, she has done little in her three Victorian runs but she did show great talent early in her career in QLD.

Wind Whistler has been a little disappointing of late but from the favourable wide draw he should be able to get into some open space early and return to form. This race features quite a few chasers who must lead to win and they are all suspect at the journey, so if he can settle mid pack he should be able to reel them in as they turn for home.

Dyna Fulcrum is poorly drawn but he did post an impressive 34.58 win here from this draw recently and with some luck early he should be in the mix, his box manners aren’t great but he does possess a good turn of foot.

Sonic Pirate is armed with smart early speed and he scored a handy 35.01 win here last time, if he can ping to the early lead he should prove very hard to reel in.

Macca’s Sway could be the value, he has been placed in two of three tries over this trip and he has been racing in strong company of late.

Bekim Hatrick is well drawn out wide and after two runs from a spell he should be ready to fire. He has done his most recent racing over the 515m journey, so back up to the 725m trip he should settle a lot closer to the speed than normal and I would expect him to put a gap in them mid race.

Kiltah Magic is expected to lead for a long way and she recently scored at Wentworth Park in a smart 42.40, if she can turn in a similar effort tonight she should give them something to catch.

Deadly Boy is expected to match motors with Kiltah Magic for most of the journey and he should give a great sight, the last 50m is a concern but I think he has a great chance of running out the journey.

Evie Jane rounds out the chances, she has turned in three great efforts here of late and with some luck early she will be in the mix again.

Alex’s Entity is airborne at present and with an even getaway he should be able to make every post a winner. Two runs back he posted a slick 29.96 victory here and the most impressive part of the victory was that he managed to come from off the speed.

Buckle Up Mason has a great record here and he is still racing quite well. This race lacks early speed and he should go with the red for most of the journey, I dont think he can beat the red but he should grab the quinella spot. Quantum Bale turned in a big effort when placed behind Marcus Joe two runs back and a repeat performance will see him feature in the finish. Allen Eryk rounds out the chances, he should be suited by the wide draw and he loves racing over this track and trip.

Love Affair is well placed in the wide draw and she tends to do her best racing here. She likes to scout wide in her races and with a clean getaway she should be able to settle in the first half of the field. This is the easiest race she has contested for a while and she should get every chance to make an impact.

Decanus is making his staying debut and he is in astute hands. His recent efforts over 525m have been impressive and he gives every indication that the longer journey will suit and he should also be able to settle a lot closer to the speed than normal tonight.

Lites And Sirens charged home to score at Sandown in 42.04 last time and she should be in the mix again, this track probably doesn’t suit her but she is racing too well to dismiss.

Big Kat has a solid record here and she shouldn’t be too far away again, she is a must for your exotics.

Good race to round out the quaddie as there are a number of chasers racing in great form. Secret Spell has won nine of 12 overall and she is unbeaten in her four runs here. Her winning time of 30.27 here last week was far from impressive but I think she will find the early lead again tonight and I would expect her to get down to around the 30 flat mark or a tad quicker.

Hercules Bale turned in a mammoth effort when scoring here last week in 30.09 and he appears to be getting better with every run. He is going to need some luck early but if he gets it he will be running over the top of them late.

One Dee broke the 30 second barrier here last week and she should put some pressure on Secret Spell early, she would normally be my top pick but I dont think she has the speed to cross Secret Spell in the first 50m.

Crusade Marjen is probably the only other winning hope, he can be hard to follow but he has enormous talent and he only needs luck in the first 50m to feature.

Waymore Blues has been racing in great form of late having scored three consecutive wins at this track. The most recent victory came over this journey and on that occasion he showed great early speed. If he can pounce on the early lead again he should prove too hard to reel in.

Tekki Minx will also settle on the speed and she has been racing very consistently with seven straight placings. If she can settle in the top two three early she should finish in the money.

Dyna Orion could be the value, he is going to settle back in the field but he does have a big finish and if he can find the rail early he should be able to make a move a little earlier than normal.

Whodat Knockin’ is dropping considerably in class and with an ounce of luck early he should make light work of this lineup. He is showing a lot more early speed than normal at present and he should be able to settle in the top two or three early. He appears to have a fair bit on this lot so he looks a really good bet tonight.

Crackerjack Rose should get a nice cart across from Radinka Bale early and she should assume control mid race. She has a top record here and if the favourite happens to find bother she may just steal the prize.

Athos is well drawn out wide and he could be the value, he has been racing well without winning of late and if they shuffle up underneath him, he may swoop into the lead at the first bend.

Dyna Fancy is normally a very reliable beginner and she looked impressive when scoring at Sandown recently in 29.61. There is no speed in the red so if she can step on terms she should be able to drive to the early lead and there doesn’t appear to be anything in this field that will reel her in.

Julie Bale is the run on type in the event, she normally races over the longer journeys but her effort here last week when finishing just outside the placings was eye catching.

Punk Pirate is a gun provincial sprinter and he should be suited to the wide draw, the only concern with him is that he can be a little hit or miss at box rise.

Black Illusion tends to struggle here but he has talent and he can run an improved race.

Zeppelin Bale scored a brilliant and strong 23.99 Bendigo win three runs back and if he can hold them out at the first bend he should prove hard to reel in. He has won here previously in 30.29 but I know he is capable of going much faster with a clear run.

Dyna Norfolk is hit or miss early but when he hits he is capable of running some great sectionals. Two starts back he pinged the lids and posted a classy 29.54 Sandown Park win, if he goes around at silly odds he is worth an each way ticket.

Se’s High Above is the run on type in the event, I dont think she is a winning chance but she should be able to run home into a place.

Mepunga Ledger hasn’t had much luck in his past two starts but prior to that he did post two brilliant Warrnambool wins over 450m. He doesn’t have great box manners but he does possess a wonderful turn of foot and from the rails draw he should be able to drive up into a prominent position early. He is very strong in the run to the line so the 520m journey should suit.

Crackerjack Babe was a strong 33.03 Horsham winner three runs back and she should figure prominently from the red draw, she is a fair way from her best at present but she is drawn to make an impact.

Soho Rhythm is much better than her recent form suggests and she should appreciate the drop in class, she normally shows early speed and if she can settle in the top two or three early she will prove hard to hold out.

Capullo Bale looks perfectly placed in the red draw and he enjoys racing at this track. He normally steps fairly but he musters pace at a rate of knots and with just average beginners drawn on his outside he should get every chance to punch through and hold them out. He has a blistering 25.60 PB here and if he can repeat that effort he will take a power of beating.

Santa’s Special is another who loves this track and trip and she is well drawn in the pink, last time out she overcame numerous difficulties to score here in 26.21 and with a clear run early she is capable of going a lot quicker.

We Are Geelong can be hard to follow but he has plenty of talent and he should get a nice trail behind Capullo Bale in the early stages, I dont think he can win but he is a must for the exotics.

The first heat is probably one of the strongest heats of the night and I think the Melinda Finn trained Winsome Prince can get the job done. This explosive chaser has won 14 of 16 overall and he looks well placed to find the early lead and dominate out in front.

Bad Boy Sniper is in rare form and he scored a devastating 29.54 win here last week and if he repeats that effort he will take a power of beating, my only concern with him is that there is a fair bit of speed drawn around him and he will need everything to go his way in the early stages.

Victorian chaser Ikaku Bale has a big engine and if he gets some room early he should be able to make an impact, his effort to score at Sandown last time was enormous.

Zipping Saxon rounds out the chances, he appears to be improving with every run and he is armed with a blistering turn of foot soon after box rise, all he needs is a clear passage in the first 50m.

Fernando Bale is a star in the making and he looks well placed in this event. There is very little speed on his outside and if he can step on terms he should be able to out muster the field and find the lead at the first bend. Three starts back he set the track alight at the Meadows when winning in 29.71 and a repeat of that will see him score easily tonight.

Country Fox had little luck here last week and he should run an improved race from the red. He possesses smart early speed and he really caught the eye when winning at Nowra two runs back in 30.02.

Sokyo was solidly placed here last week after having a month off and he would have derived a lot of benefit from that run, he has scored some sizzling wins in his brief career and if he finds the bunny early he should give a great sight.

Oh So Striking is the run on type in the event, however he is resuming from a spell so he should show a bit more early dash. He is well drawn in the pink and he has won here previously in a brilliant 29.70.

Zipping Eastwood is an exciting prospect and he turned in a monster effort when narrowly beaten here last week. With a slow beginner drawn in box two, he should get plenty of room to drive through at the bend and if he can get into some open space he should round them up and dash away. It’s worth noting he did win a trial here a couple of weeks ago in a sizzling 29.75.

Spring Missile is your likely leader and he should be able to build up a nice lead mid race. His last 50m isn’t great but he has won here previously so he should be able to hold on for a top three finish.

Topper Road should follow Spring Missile across in the early stages and prior to his two luckless Gosford efforts he was in fantastic form.

Country Gun is the interesting runner, he could cause the five and six some bother early because he is a brilliant beginner. I dont think he will run out the trip but he could cause some problems early in the race.

Anything Less is a beast and he has won 10 of his 16 tries over this trip. He doesn’t have the best box manners but he does have great track sense and he should be able to work his way through the field mid race and be in a threatening position as they turn for home. He has numerous wins here in around the 29.60 mark and with a clear run he should get the job done.

Dark Vito is a brilliant Tasmanian chaser and he is drawn to lead for a long way, he captured the Devonport Cup final at his last start and on that occasion he hit the line powerfully.

Rare Pearl is an enormous talent but he tends to find a lot of trouble in his races, from the yellow box he is still a chance but I wouldn’t be taking short odds about him.

Whittaker was a recent finalist in the Paws Of Thunder and his effort in the final was respectable, he isn’t well drawn but he can muster speed quickly and he might fluke a run through at the first bend.

Zipping Carter is the interesting runner, I think this bloke is going to be a star in the future and he is just lacking a little bit of experience at present. He can obviously win tonight, but I would be watching him in future Group races.

Are Jip has turned in three steady efforts of late but tonight he exits his favourite draw and he should get every chance. There is a fair bit of speed drawn underneath so that should allow him to get a nice cart across early and with a clear run he will be running some serious time. He did record his blistering 29.48 PB here from this pin.

Opus Forte announced himself as a force to be reckoned with when scoring here in a brilliant 29.72, he had always showed great talent but he was making a lot of mistakes in his races. Last week he reeled off impressive sectionals and he then powered to the line.

Winsome Jacko is one of the most talented chasers in training and if he gets some room early he will make an impact.

Paua To Roar looks the likely leader and he should give a nice sight, he will get a stitch in the last 50m but if he breaks them up mid race he might have enough in the tank to hold on.

Crackerjack Max appears to be improving with every run and last week he flew into the first turn before posting an impressive 29.79 victory here. If he can produce a similar first sectional this week he should be able to cross early and if he finds the bunny I dont think they will reel him in.

Winsome Mission has plenty of gears and if he can step cleanly he will prove hard to hold out, last week he was far from disgraced when placed behind Bad Boy Sniper and with slow beginners drawn around him tonight he should get every chance to push through early.

Dyna Yemen has been disappointing of late but I know he is better than that and he should show improvement tonight.

Zipping Sonny must also be respected, he has scored three sizzling wins of late and he appears to be going from strength to strength.

Race 1

Usain I’m Nutty is a highly promising type and he is getting better with every start, he lacks early speed but he does have good track sense and he is armed with a powerful finish. In recent weeks he has been racing against some quality opposition and this is clearly the easiest race he has contested for a while. I’m expecting him to settle mid field and he should then make a strong move as they head for the back straight.

Fixate is drawn to hold the early lead and he should give a nice sight. Three starts back he posted an impressive 29.64 victory here and if he holds them out early he is probably capable of going a lot quicker.

Johnny Mobster can be hit or miss early but he is drawn to get a nice sit behind Fixate in the early stages, if he can avoid bother at the first bend he should run a cheeky race.

Black and Pretty has a great turn of foot and if she happens to cross she could get the cash at each way odds.

Race 2

Miss Mayflower is making her Sandown Park debut but she has won five of ten in brilliant fashion and she is drawn to get all the breaks in this event. With the red expected to lead, she should be able to drive up at the first turn and settle in second of third spot as they head for the back straight. She is quite strong in the run to the line and she should be able to reel in the red as they turn and head for home.

Cash Rules has recently joined the powerful Ennis kennel and she has won three on the trot in explosive fashion. She is expected to lead for a long way tonight but this is a rise in class so she will need to find plenty in the home straight.

Quarterback is a big talent but he relies heavily on luck in his races and from box six he is going to need everything to go his way early. Back in December he did post a highly impressive 25.25 Ballarat win and on that occasion he beat the classy Jamiela Twist.

Blistering Bob can be hard to follow at times but he really caught the eye when winning at Warrnambool last time in 25.40.

Race 3

Tough race but Miss Cersei was probably the most impressive heat winner and she looks well placed to win again. Last time out she settled mid field but when she got into some open space off the back straight she went into overdrive and powered to the line before scoring in 29.83. The time wasn’t flashy but she found a bit of bother in the run and I’m expecting her to find plenty on the clock.

Alpha Leva Keato was never headed in his handy 29.71 heat win and if he holds them out again from the red he should give a great sight. There isn’t much speed drawn directly outside him tonight so he should get all the breaks in the run to the first bend.

White Walker could be the value in the event, he was far from disgraced when narrowly beaten last week and he has more than enough talent to match it with this lot, the draw is against him but he has great place prospects at nice odds.

Image Puzzle rounds out the chances, she is capable of crossing to the early lead and if she finds the bunny early she may prove hard to catch, however to have any chance she must lead.

Win bet on Miss Cersei

Trifecta: 3/1,5,6/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 4

Eyeful Of Bling is a big talent and he should be suited to the 595m journey. He can be unreliable at box rise but he does have the ability to ping away and when he does he can run some serious time. Back in early December he timed the start well and posted a blistering 24.72 Sale win, if he can turn in a similar performance tonight he will take a power of beating.

Cosmea is dropping in class and she has been placed in her three tries over this journey, she normally begins well so with a clean getaway tonight she should settle in the top three early and she will be quite strong in the run to the line.

Crafty Maisy has the good draw and she has been racing in consistent style at present, if she can ping away and hold them out she should be able to play a major role.

Baron Bling rounds out the chances, he was solidly placed over this trip two runs back and although this is a rise in class he should be up to the challenge.

Top Four: 4 – 5 – 1 – 3

Exacta: 4,5/1,3,4,5 ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 4/1,3,5/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 5

Samus Allen hasn’t had much luck in recent weeks and from the rails draw she should get every chance to return to the winners list. Two starts back she turned in a strong performance when placed in a heat of the Paws and she should be suited by the drop in class. She normally begins well and if she can step cleanly she will have more than enough speed to drive to the early lead and she is a different chaser when on the bunny.

Xtreme Knocka won at Ballarat from this draw two runs back and he was far from disgraced when placed in a heat of the Warragul Cup, he can be a little unreliable at times but from the red he should get every chance to hold a forward position early.

Morningside turned in a strong performance when placed here last week and she shouldn’t be too far away again, she doesn’t win very often so she could be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Ibrox Digger has a good record here and he can run a cheeky race at odds, the box draw doesn’t help but he does have good track sense.

Top Four: 2 – 1 – 7 – 5

Win bet on Samus Allen

Trifecta: 2/1,5,7/Field ($18 for 100%)

Trifecta: 1,2/1,2/Field ($12 for 100%)

Race 6

Great race and if Quasi Bale can get away cleanly he should take a power of beating. He is one of the most promising staying prospects in training and two starts back he set the track alight here with a blistering 33.89 win. On that occasion he pounced on the lead and reeled off crazy sectionals, tonight there is very little speed in boxes one to three, so he should get every chance to fire to the early lead.

Come On Fantasy turned a few heads at Albion Park last time when scoring in a near record 34.64, that run sort of came out of the blue and I’d prefer to see her do it again before I declare her a star in the making, obviously if she repeats that effort she will give Quasi Bale a run for his money.

Ralphy Cinel is much better than his form reads and he returns to his favourite track and trip, he normally begins well and he should match motors with the four and five for most of the journey.

Texas Titan is suited to the wide draw and he has been racing well, I dont think he can win tonight but he is a must for the exotics.

Top Four: 5 – 4 – 6 – 7

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Quasi Bale

Boxed Quinella: 4,5,6,7 ($6 for 100%)

Exacta: 4,5/4,5,6,7 ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 5/4,6,7/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 7

Kicking Rocks was a recent finalist in the Group One Hobart Thousand Final and he should be suited by tonight’s wide draw. He has won here previously in a slick 29.49 and he should get a nice cart across from Astromatic in the first 50m. He is a better chaser on the bunny but he does have the ability to come from off the speed.

Astromatic should roll to the early lead and he is unbeaten in his two tries here. He isn’t overly strong but he is improving with each run. He is the only genuine leader in this race so I’m expecting there to be a lot of shuffling behind him early so he may be able to build up a nice lead mid race.

Weston East has a great record here and he will be very strong in the run to the line, he should be suited by the rails draw and he just needs an ounce of luck at the first bend.

Gorham Bale rounds out the chances, he is likely to get a long way back early but he can sneak home into the money.

Top Four: 7 – 6 – 2 – 4

Win bet on Kicking Rocks

Trifecta: 7/2,4,6/Field ($18 for 100%)

Trifecta: 6,7/6,7/Field ($12 for 100%)

Quinella: 7 to rove with 2,4,6 ($3 for 100%)

Race 8

My Bro Fabio returned to racing here last week and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. He looked as though he needed the hit out and I would expect he to front up a little sharper tonight. Tonight’s event features a fair bit of early speed and that should work in his favour, he will settle back in the field but with the leaders expected to bunch up he shouldn’t be too far off the lead as they reach the back straight. He is extremely powerful and with a clear run he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Marcus Joe is racing in great form at present and from the red draw he should hold a forward spot in the early stages, if he happens to hold them out and lead, he will prove very hard to reel in.

Deadly Vane made an impressive debut here last week when winning in 29.29 and he should probably be able to go a bit quicker tonight if he finds the lure again.

Blue Giant could be the value, he is likely to settle mid pack and if he gets into some open space he should be able to make a strong move mid race.

Top Four: 8 – 1 – 4 – 3

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on My Bro Fabio

Quinella: 8 to rove with 1,3,4 ($3 for 100%)

Exacta: 1,4,8/1,3,4,8 ($9 for 100%)

Trifecta: 8/1,3,4/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 9

Footluce Diva flew around here last week when scoring in 34.13 and a repeat of that effort will see her win with ease again. She possesses handy early speed and with two wide runners drawn on her outside she should be afforded all the breaks as they head into the first bend.

Lektra Hawk made his middle distance debut here last week and he was far from disgraced, if he can push through at the first bend and settle in the first half of the field, he should be right there at the end.

Cornelius Fudge has a great overall record at this venue and he should be steaming home at the end, he may get too far back early to win but he could be a great anchor for second and third in your exotic bets.

Hala Belle could be the value, she resumed from a six month spell last time at Bendigo and she should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

Top Four: 1 – 2 – 5 – 4

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 1/2,4,5/Field ($18 for 100%)

Exacta: 1,2/1,2,4,5 ($6 for 100%)

Quinella: 1 to rove with 2,4,5 ($3 for 100%)

Race 10

Scintillating appeared to be struggling for a while, but at Geelong last time he showed that he is back to his best with a blistering 25.56 win. The box draw doesn’t suit tonight but he does possess dazzling early speed soon after box rise and with a clean getaway he should be able to drive to the early lead. If he can reproduce his 29.26 PB run here he should be able to get the cash.

Mepunga Ranger has the good draw and he was far from disgraced when placed here last week, from the red he should hold a forward spot early and he will be very strong in the run to the line.

Margins really caught the eye with a brilliant 29.30 win here last time and he only needs an ounce of luck early to feature.

Yanick Allen has shown tremendous improvement in recent weeks and she must be respected again, this is a big rise in class but she did look impressive in her 29.33 win here last time.

Top Four: 5 – 1 – 4 – 6

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Scintillating

Boxed Quinella: 1,4,5,6 ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 5/1,4,6/Field ($18 for 100%)

Exacta: 1,4,5/1,4,5,6 ($9 for 100%)

Race 11

Grand Intention is an exciting prospect and he should make up for his luckless effort here last week. Two runs back he destroyed a handy lineup when posting an impressive 27.98 Bendigo win and if he can show similar speed tonight he should get the cash with ease. He is likely to be short odds but he does look the goods.

Dyna Nihilist can be hard to follow but he is capable of good things when he is switched on, he will get back early on but if he can find the rail mid race he should be able to make a powerful move and put himself into contention.

Frank Furter has the speed to lead and he could run a cheeky race at odds, whilst Dyna Fatbob has been racing in solid style and if the favourite happens to make some mistakes early he will get a chance to score.

Top Four: 3 – 7 – 5 – 4

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Grand Intention

Exacta: 3,7/3,4,5,7 ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 3/4,5,7/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 12

Duomo Bale is a massive talent and his effort at the Meadows three runs back was extremely impressive. He isn’t the best beginner but he does have a nice turn of foot and with slow beginners drawn around him he should get every chance to push through into a prominent position at the first turn.

Andiamo Neo has the good draw and he keeps going from strength to strength, he is armed with solid early speed and if he holds them out early he will be running time on the bunny.

Velloway is dropping in class and he should be hitting the line solidly, he tends to find bother in the run but he should appreciate this class and he has the talent to win.

Dyna Chaser rounds out the chances, he has been placed in four of five here and he does have solid mid-race pace.

Top Four: 6 – 1 – 3 – 7

Win bet on Duomo Bale

Boxed Quinella: 1,3,6,7 ($6 for 100%)

Zipping Abby is absolutely flying at present and she looked ultra impressive when scoring here last week in 29.74 from this draw. There is a bit of speed drawn underneath her but that should help her out as Dyna Nico should cut off the inside division. She is really improving with every run and she looks to be a star in the making.

Dyna Nico scored a handy 29.86 win here last week and she should lead them a merry dance for a long way again. Her last 40m isn’t great but she has been getting stronger with every run.

Broadway Miss is a classy Victorian and she is drawn to hold a forward spot early, with a clean getaway she should sit just behind Dyna Nico early and if she handles the track at her first look she should be in the mix at the end.

Mepunga Treasure rounds out the chances, she can be very hit or miss early but when she times the start she is capable of reeling off very smart sectionals.

Very even affair but I think the early speed of Megan Keeping will play a key part in the outcome. Since returning to the track she has been racing in dazzling style and she set the track alight at Maitland last time when scoring in 25.09. She is a doubt to run out the trip but her effort over 450m last time showed that she is getting stronger with every run and when in work last time she did post two placings over this journey. If she finds the bunny early she will give them something to catch.

Miss Sueko can ping the lids and she has won here previously in a brilliant 29.67, she is resuming after a few months off and she should be ready to fire first up.

Weblec Belle has the class edge and if she has been racing against strong company of late, I would prefer her from a wider draw but she is too good to dismiss.

Uno Suzie rounds out the chances, like the top two picks she races best when on the bunny and with a clean getaway she has the speed to match the six and the eight, she isn’t as strong in the run home but she should give a great sight.

Paua Explosion is armed with a devastating turn of foot and if she is given some room in the first 50m she should be able to roll to the early lead. She hasn’t had much luck in her two recent efforts here but I’m expecting her to get a clearer run soon after box rise and she can then show her best form.

Jayney Bale is a classy Victorian speedster and she was desperately unlucky in a heat of the Paws here recently, she would have derived a lot of benefit from that run and she should handle the track a lot better tonight.

Frost Yourself is a consistent type and she consistently goes around 5.50 or a bit better to the first marker, if she shows that type of speed she might hold them out and she could run a cheeky race.

Electric Star rounds out the chances, she scored a devastating 30.62 Richmond win last time and she appears to be getting better with every run.

Another good heat and it looks to be a speed battle between the one, two and four. I’m giving the edge to the classy Kerrigan Bale, she was placed in the Paws Final last week and she looked impressive when winning her heat in 29.80. If she can turn in a similar display of speed tonight she should hold them out and score.

Jewel Action should match motors with Kerrigan Bale for most of the trip and she has a great record here, she isn’t overly strong but there are a lot of speed chasers in this event so if she holds them out she will be right in the finish.

Zipping Midge is a real up and comer and she has scored some slick wins in her brief career. She is still learning but she has the speed and talent to match it with this lot.

Foxy Nakita is the real deal and she defeated the in form and exciting Opus Forte here two runs back when posting a sizzling 29.72. Tonight she exits the same draw and she should have no trouble holding them out early and repeating the dose.

Oakvale Destiny was far from disgraced when placed in a heat of the Paws recently and she is an established star, the box draw hasn’t done her any favours but she tends to make very few mistakes and she should have no trouble weaving her way through the field.

Assertive Bella was runner up in the Paws last week and she keeps going from strength to strength, I dont like her drawn out wide tonight but she is too good to dismiss.

Jingjing has won five of six and she has high speed but this is a big rise in class for her and she may need a bit more experience to be a factor.

Spring Leaf was a recent finalist in the Group One Paws of Thunder and she has been racing in scintillating form. This is probably one of the weaker heats so if she can get away cleanly she should be able to roll to the early lead and she should prove too strong for her rivals. She has the ability to lead or come from off the speed in her races and she looks really well placed here.

Ella Has Class has scored some blistering wins over this trip and if she can cross from the wide draw she will prove hard to hold out, if she happens to get across early she should be able to put some pressure on Spring Leaf throughout.

Oakvale Flyer is much better than her recent form reads and she can run time when she sites the bunny. She has no speed drawn around her so if she steps well she could find herself vying for the early lead.

Kurmond Goddess has the good draw and she rounds out the chances, she hasn’t had much luck of late and I would expect an improved effort here.

Wide open affair to kick off the night and although Georgina has been costly in her brief career to date, she looks really well placed in this event. She has been soundly beaten in her recent placings here but if you go back through her form she does have a sizzling 30.46 Ipswich win to her credit, with a clear run early she should be able to make a big impact.

Queenies Best is the likely leader and she should give a great sight, she isn’t overly strong but she is hitting the line a lot better with every run over this journey.

Orara Ell has the good draw and she should share the lead for most of the journey, like Queenies Best, she isn’t overly strong but if she holds them out she should get her chance.

Moss Win Queen rounds out the chances, she is well drawn out wide and she caught the eye when scoring at Ipswich from this draw at her second start.

Renouf’s Magic has turned in three great performances to date and with a clean getaway he should be able to carve across and lead comfortably. Two starts back he really caught the eye when placed narrowly beaten by Indiana Rumble and this race doesn’t appear to be much stronger.

Velvet Rumble is an exciting prospect and she had little luck in her debut here last week. Two starts back she set the Lismore track alight with a blistering 24.03 win and if she brought that form to town she would win with ease tonight. The only concern with her is the box draw and she is going to need a few things to go her way early.

Lady Abigail has the good draw and she will be hitting the line strongly, she is still learning to race but from the red she should be able to settle a bit closer to the early speed than she normally would.

Spookie’s Gift finally put it together here last week and he appears to be the real deal. After beginning well he showed a devastating turn of foot, scoring in a slick 30.01. He has slow beginners drawn on either side tonight so if he can step cleanly he should be able to drive through in the early stages and if he settles in the top two early he will take a power of beating.

Mr. Brand is armed with a big finish and he has been placed in six of his ten tries here, he should be suited to the rails draw and he could be a great dog to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets.

Elusive Desire powered to the line when scoring here last week in 30.07 and if he is given some room in the early stages he will take a power of beating again, the only concern with him is that he is better suited to a wide draw because he does take a few strides to muster speed.

Extremely open race and although he is poorly drawn, Grin And Win probably gets his chance to score tonight. He has been racing in much stronger company of late and if the red can hold them out early he should get a nice run through at the first turn and he should then assume control mid race. He can be unreliable but this is a big drop in class and with an ounce of luck he should score.

Blue Den has the good draw and he has enough speed to hold them out early, he is going to be big odds but if he finds the bunny early he could give a great sight at odds.

Snippy’s Dame has a great record here and he should settle near the speed, she has slow beginners drawn on either side so there should be no excuses for her.

Outback Hero has a solid record here and he is rarely far away in this class, I dont think he will win but he is a must for your exotics.

Sheridon has been racing in stellar form over the 600m journey of late and he has been showing enough zip to be competitive over the shorter journey. He does his best racing from wide draws and he has the advantage of having slow beginners drawn on either side, with an even getaway he should settle in the top three early and he should then prove too strong in the run home.

Bremer made his QLD debut here last week and he posted a blistering 29.83 win, if he can reproduce similar sectionals tonight he should really test Sheridon throughout.

Chariot’s Offiah is much better than his form reads and if he can step cleanly he could run a big race at nice odds, he does have a brilliant PB here and he just needs to regain some confidence.

Dashing Man is the interesting runner, he is resuming after 10 months off but he was a classy chaser when last in work.

Dream River loves racing over this journey and he can show a devastating turn of foot soon after box rise. He has a slow beginner on his outside and Miner’s Moss should give him a nice cart across in the early stages. So with a clean getaway he should get all the breaks and every chance to score.

Mister To Us is the run on type in the event and he turned in a big performance to score here last week in 30.22, if he can gain some luck mid race he should be there at the finish.

Coin Of Phrase is a super talent when on song and he is suited to the wide draw, he is also very strong at the end of his races and he likes to scout wide through the turns, so he should be able to avoid bother throughout.

Abby’s Fantasy has the speed to lead and she has raced well here of late, her last 40m is a worry but if she gets away mid race she might steal the prize.

Kidatee Croc has scored three brilliant wins here over this trip of late and from the red he should hold them out at the first bend and prove too speedy mid-race. His 34.82 win two runs back was highly impressive and a repeat of that effort will see him take home the prize.

Hougenie is probably better suited to a wider draw but she can show early speed in her races and she has a great record over this journey. With a good getaway she should be able to follow the red through early and she will have a nice crack at the lead mid race.

Bon Yeo had no luck in his middle distance debut and I would expect him to show a lot of improvement, he is a promising stayer in the making and he could be the value in the race.

Good Call Paul has the class edge but he is going to need a heap of luck from the middle pin, however if he does get a clear run he will be right there at the end.

Farmer’s Gold turned in a monster effort here last week he is drawn to get a nice sit behind the early lead You Can Talk. Four starts back he scored a powerful 29.53 Gosford win and with a similar effort tonight he should take a power of beating, with the speed in the red, this really looks his race.

Flash Reality returned to racing here last week and he didn’t have much luck, he was posted wide for most of the trip and he never really had a chance. He would have derived a lot of benefit from that run and he is a big chance to return to form tonight.

You Can Talk has been flying over the shorter journey at Ipswich of late and from the red she should be able to set a cracking pace tonight, her last 50m is a worry but if she gets away mid race she might just steal the cash.

Marlisa is armed with sizzling early speed and she was far from disgraced when placed here last week. From the rails draw she should be able to push through into a prominent position in the early stages and if she holds them out she should be off and gone mid race.

Buenos Cloud has been racing in consistent style and she beat a handy lineup here last week in 30.45, the time wasn’t flashy but he had to overcome difficulties mid race and he really powered to the line.

Grim Creeper can be very hard to follow but he is well drawn out wide and he can unleash a monster finish.

Velocity Spice has a sizzling 29.82 PB here and if she can fire to the early lead she will prove hard to stop, if she was drawn closer to the inside she would have been my top pick.

Messidonna Cloud has recorded two top placings here of late and he is drawn to get all the breaks. There is very little speed drawn on his outside so he should get every chance to push through and hold them out at the first turn.

Don’t Go Quietly is armed with a big finish and he has been placed in seven of his past eight here, he is going to need some luck mid race but if the gaps open he will prove extremely hard to hold out in the home straight.

Killara has been placed in two of four here and she will hit the line strongly, this is a drop in class for her and if she can step cleanly she should figure prominently throughout.

Texas Tee has the speed to lead and he could be the value, if he can cross and they shuffle up behind he may just pinch a break.

Tough race to kick off the night but if Barnes Bay can get away cleanly he should be able to make every post a winner. Last time out he resumed after a month off and he showed a tremendous turn of foot mid race before getting a little tired in the home straight, he will be much better for the run and he should hit the line a lot better tonight.

Spring Charlotte is well placed in the wide draw and she is much better than her recent form suggests, with a slow beginner on her outside she should get all the breaks as they head into the first bend.

Allen Zentax recorded a strong placing here two runs back and he has been showing smart early speed since coming from Victoria, this is the easiest race he has contested for a while and he may cause a boil over.

Witch Bale is going to be well fancied and she must be included in your exotic bets, she is likely to get shuffled back early but she will hit the line solidly.

Long Gully Mark has been airborne of late and from the red he should be afforded all the breaks in the early stages. Last time out he overcame a lot of bother to score in 30.23 and with the lack of early speed in tonight’s event he should be able to settle a lot closer to the speed.

Margaret Keeping should roll to the early lead and she will give a great sight, she is getting stronger with every run and she should get a fairly cheap lead in this event.

Parsec Bale was desperately unlucky here last week and she will be suited by the wide draw, she lacks early speed but she will be powering to the line.

Oran Bale is another run on type and she was racing in great form here in December, she will need some luck in running but if she gets it she will be there at the end.

Funky Chicken has had no luck in his two recent efforts here and he should be suited by the rails draw. He isn’t the best beginner but he does muster speed quickly and with a clear run he should be able to settle in the top three as they head for the back straight.

Spring Tyson is another who has been racing without luck and she has the capable of pinging the lids, there is no speed drawn around her tonight so if she can step away she should be able to drive to the early lead and give them something to catch.

Woodside Jagger is more than capable on his night and he just needs a good getaway to put himself into contention, he is very hard to follow but he could be the value bet if he goes around at silly odds.

Asuka Bale has the good draw and she has been racing in consistent fashion, include her in your exotic bets.

Good race and the classy Luna Jinx looks well placed in the pink draw, she didn’t have much luck at The Meadows last time but three runs back she did post a sizzling 43.27 win here when beating a similar lineup to what she meets tonight. She will need a few things to go her way early but she should have enough pace to settle in the first half of the field and she will be very strong in the run home.

Psychotic Gold charged home to score here on Monday night in a solid 43.55 and a repeat of that effort would see her figure prominently. She tends to miss the kick but she does have great track sense and she has won 12 of 23 over this trip.

Zara Mclaren is absolutely flying at present and she should get every chance from the red draw, two runs back she destroyed the same type of field when posting a blistering 43.12.

Mclaren Grace rounds out the place prospects, she will drop out early but she is quite strong and she can sneak into third spot.

Gun Mcbain is racing in dazzling form at present and he has continued to get stronger and stronger with every run. Three starts back he posted a scorching 29.73 win over this journey and a repeat of that would see him win with ease again. There is very little speed drawn around him so he should get every chance to cross in the early stages.

Black Bottle should match motors with Gun Mcbain for most of the trip and he looks likely to fill the quinella spot, he isn’t overly strong but I’m expecting the two of them to build up a nice lead mid race.

He’s A Villian is extremely consistent and he will be charging home at the end, three starts back he steamed home to score in 30.18 and that type of effort would see him threaten again.

Allen Odin has the good draw and he was far from disgraced when placed on Monday, he appears to be slowly regaining his confidence so he must be respected.

Excusez Moi has excelled since coming across from QLD and her last start placing here was super impressive. The wide draw should suit tonight as she likes to track wide through the turns and with the zippy Gunsmoke Mcbain drawn in box six she should get a nice cart into the first turn. Farmeroo is going to start short and he has the good draw, but Excusez Moi has the good draw and she could be the value.

Farmeroo bombed the start last time out and he should turn in an improved performance, three starts back he pinged to the early lead and posted a slick 29.91 victory here, that type of effort would see him take a power of beating.

Aeroplane Bowser is armed with a monster finish and he has been racing extremely well, he might get too far back early to win but he is a must for the exotics.

Tough race but Kalden Kostello has the rails draw and he should have enough speed to hold them out at the first turn. He is much better than his recent form reads and he does have a solid 30 flat PB here, if he can find the bunny early he is probably capable of going sub 30.

Beach Wary set the track alight here recently when winning over 600m in a slick 35.08, he is probably better suited to a longer trip but he is still capable of being competitive over this journey.

Chemical Maker returned to form with a smart 30.10 win here and a similar effort tonight would see him figure prominently throughout.

Black Daddy is another in form runner and he was placed behind a gun chaser here last week, he is going to need some luck in the early stages but he is very strong and he does possess great mid race pace.

Great race and if the exciting Dakota Premier can step cleanly he should take a power of beating. He has won two of his past three starts here in explosive fashion and on both occasions he has pinged the lids and reeled off brilliant sectionals. He will need some room in the early stages but if he gets it he should make light work of this lineup.

Cash In Looper is a super talent and he should be suited by the wide draw, the only concern with him is that there is a fair bit of speed drawn on his outside, he should run cover for the yellow and he could be the value bet if he goes around at silly odds.

Alderley Reform has won four on the trot and 12 of 15 overall here, he is obviously a chance again but I’m a little concerned he may be posted wide for most of the trip.

Dr. Kiaralee has the good draw and she has the speed to hold them out, I dont think she can win but she is a must for your exotic bets.

Freesia Bale has been racing in consistent style of late and she is due for a change of luck, she showed great mid race pace in her last start placing over this trip and she should be much better for the run. The empty draw on her outside is a big advantage and this race appears to lack a fair bit of depth.

Miss Party Girl looks the likely leader and she is never far away over this trip, she tends to lose a lot of ground through the turns but she is very strong in the run home.

Allen Nemo should appreciate the rise in distance and from the red he might be able to settle a little closer to the early lead.

Victa Victoria loves racing over this trip and she must be included in your exotic bets, she doesn’t win very often these days but she is never far away.

Destiny Bale has excelled since coming from Victoria and her effort to score here on Monday after missing the kick was eye catching. I’m expecting her to begin a lot better tonight and she should roll to the early lead and she is capable of going sub 30 seconds on the bunny.

Hersi is much better than his form reads and he should follow Destiny Bale across in the early stages, he can be hit or miss early but with a couple of slow beginners on his outside he should get every chance to drive through at the first bend.

Hazerati has the good draw and he turned in a strong effort when placed here two runs back, I dont think he can win but he is a must for your exotic bets.

Thor Bale is a strong Victorian chaser and he must be respected in his SA debut, he is dropping back in distance so place claims may be preferred.

Good race to finish and I think the favourable rails draw for Fraya Bale should see her get the cash. On Monday night she showed her customary early speed before scoring in a zippy 30.13 and she should be able to find at least a length on that effort as it was her first 500m run for six weeks.

Long Gully Magic is an exciting prospect and he went sub 30 when winning here last week. He will be suited by the wide draw and he has a slow beginner drawn underneath and a wide runner on his outer, so he should get a clear passage in the early stages.

Miss Footluce has been placed in her past seven starts here and she must be included in your exotic bets again.

End of an era for Sportingbet, Centrebet and TomWaterhouse.com

Online bookmaking brands Sportingbet, Centrebet and TomWaterhouse will soon disappear in Australia as they are replaced by William Hill, the British parent company of all three.



The decision was announced on Tuesday with the re-branding of Sportingbet set to commence before the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and the 2015 NRL and AFL seasons.

It is not known exactly how quickly the re-branding of Centrebet and TomWaterhouse will take place, however, they are both expected to be rebranded William Hill in the not-too-distant future.

Tom Waterhouse, who was appointed chief executive of William Hill Australia in July last year, said in a press release the changes would be beneficial to punters and would offer them greater betting opportunities as a part of a globally-recognised brand. 



“The change to William Hill will give us a recognised and respected international brand with which to compete at the highest level in Australia’s competitive market,” Waterhouse said.

“It will also allow us to work much more closely with global racing and sporting bodies and provide our Australian customers with more diverse betting opportunities.”



With the re-branding of the three betting companies, William Hill Australia will increase its marketing budget by around $10 million.

It is not the first time Sportingbet and Centrebet have been flagged to be re-branded. In 2013 the then chief executive of William Hill, Ralph Topping, announced the two online bookmakers would be redeveloped to create a sense of unison within the brand.



The plan was ditched when Michael Sullivan, the former chief executive of William Hill Australia who set up Sportingbet originally, walked away.



William Hill Australia was established when Sportingbet Australia (including Centrebet) was acquired by William Hill on March 19, 2013. Tomwaterhouse.com was obtained on August 12, 2013.

Chelsea Bird has the good box and her past two wins here have been from this draw. Two starts back she speared to the early lead and posted an impressive 22.42 victory here and if she can reproduce that type of form she will take a power of beating. With the highly promising Lady Xanthe in the race she you are likely to get around the $3 mark.

Oz Dazzler showed great improvement when scoring here last week in 22.38 and he should match motors with Chelsea Bird for most of the journey, I dont think he will be able to cross so maybe the quinella spot looks best.

Lady Xanthe has a heap of talent and she has looked impressive in her two wins to date, the concern with her is that she can be slow to begin at times and she will need a heap of luck from this draw.

Princely Bogan rounds out the chances, he has the ability to ping the lids and he could run a cheeky race.

He doesn’t have a great record here but this is the weakest race he has contested for some time. If he can step on terms he should be able to burn them off early and lead throughout.

King Chaos is poorly drawn but he has a lot of talent, he is resuming from a spell and I would expect him to turn in a big performance fresh. He has won at Gawler over 400m in quick in the past and he just needs luck early.

Truly Delicate must be respected, she races well here and she has enough speed to settle in the top three early.

Scootah rounds out the chances, he should get a nice cart across early and he can cause an upset.

Wide open affair to kick off the night and I think Allen Gundam can run a big race off the front mark. Two starts back he turned in a solid performance when placed over this journey and this race appears to be a little easier class wise. There is no speed drawn underneath his so with an even getaway he should be able to settle in the top three early and he will be strong in the run to the line.

Evie Jane is well drawn out wide and she tends to race well here, two starts back she pinged to the early lead and demolished her rivals when scoring in 42.72, if she can repeat that effort she will take a power of beating.

Cambridge Prince is improving with every run over the staying journey and he will be hitting the line strongly.

Luna Jinx and Shall She Rock have the class edge but both will be giving the rest of the field a head start.

Axis Bale is much better than his recent form reads and from the favourable draw he should be able to return to the winners list. If you go back through his form, he has a sizzling 29.31 Sandown win to his credit and he does possess a wonderful turn of foot soon after box rise. This is the easiest race he has contested for a while and he should figure in the finish.

Ima Screw Loose has the speed to lead and he gave a great sight when placed behind Polly Bale here last week, if he can ping and find the lead again he should prove hard to reel in.

Galahad is well drawn nearer the inside and he has a great record over this journey, if he is given room to muster early he can make a big impact.

Skinny Vinnie is another who is better than his form reads, he should settle near the pace and he could be the value in the event.

Bogner Bale has won six of 17 over this journey and he has been racing well in strong company of late. If he can begin well from box two he should have the speed to hold them out and if he can reproduce his 30.01 PB run he will prove hard to hold out.

Kid Maximus is suitably drawn and like Bogner Bale he should appreciate the drop in class, he has been racing in solid form at Ballarat recently and he looks better suited to this journey.

Play A Kazoo is probably the most talented of any chaser in the field but he can be very hard to follow at times. Three starts ago he posted a sizzling 19.25 Healesville win and if he can find the lure early he should be able to set up a nice lead mid race.

Me And Mase is the interesting runner, he has done very little in his five Victorian runs but prior to coming across from WA he did boast a record of 13 wins from 24 tries.

8WAYMORE’S BLUES [4]5111234.65(5)K Bravo (Lovely Banks)

Deadly Boy has the great draw and with three wins from five tries over this trip, it’s hard to tip against him. Last time out he was narrowly beaten in a heat of the Sale Cup by Space Star and he followed that effort up with a sizzling 25.15 Ballarat trial win. I know he lost his focus at Sale last time but from the red tonight he should lead easily and he will be running some serious time.

Mepunga Hayley is racing below her best at the moment but she should be suited by the smaller field. Two starts back she speared to the lead and scored over the 725m journey and although the time was competitive she appears to have lost her mid race zip.

Rumero Reason is a strong type and he should get a nice sit behind Deadly Boy for most of the trip. He has a good record here and he beat a handy lineup in his 34.61 win here three runs back

Ima Fairytale is absolutely flying at present and with slow beginners drawn on her outside she should get every chance to lead throughout. Two starts back she scored a powerful 29.56 Sandown Park win and she followed that effort up with a great placing behind the in form Sisco Rage. She has been placed in three of four here and she looks suited in this company.

Crackerjack Rose has a top record here and she was a tad unlucky here last week. After pinging to the early lead she copped a knock mid race and lost momentum, if she can begin like she did last week she should give them something to catch.

Reiko Bale is quite strong and she is drawn to get all the breaks. In December she beat a handy sprinter here in 30.26 and a similar effort here will see her put some pressure on the more fancied runners.

10SKIP’S NIGHTMARE (NSW)[5]Res.2848230.35(4)H Collins (Lara)

Tough race with a number of chances but I think the exciting Marungi Choice has the speed to get across and set the pace. Last week he was a tad slow to begin but he showed explosive speed soon after box rise before scoring in 30.18. That was his first look at the track last week so I would expect him to improve on his winning time.

Humming Birdhill was the most impressive heat winner, she overcome a lot of difficulties early in the race before scoring in 30.10, she is normally a much better beginner than that and if she can avoid early bother she will figure in the finish.

Adam Handler has the good draw and he does his best racing here, he must lead to win but with an even getaway he should have sufficient speed to settle in the top two.

Connor’s Rocket could be the value in the event, he gets to the line strongly and he turned in an eye catching performance in his heat.

8ULLA ALLEN (NSW)[5]6351730.23(4)S Collins (Lara)

Secret Spell is unbeaten over this trip and she is a winner of eight of 11 overall. Tonight she finds herself in a very weak event and if she can repeat her blistering 29.26 winning effort from Sandown in November she should make light work of this lineup.

Punk Pirate is an all star provincial sprinter and he has won here over this trip previously, the box draw is a big concern for him tonight but he does possess wonderful speed after box rise and he should be able to put himself into contention.

Ulla Allen is the run on type in the event and she recently caught the eye when winning at Cranbourne in an impressive 30.30. She will need some luck at the first bend but if she gets it she will give the favourite a scare as they turn for home.

Wealthy Schooner is well placed in the red draw and although he is rising considerably in class he should be able to sneak into some minor money.

10DELI ALLEN (NSW)[4]Res.6254630.24(7)S Collins (Lara)

Avondale Porche is in rare form at present and she held off a great lineup when capturing the Group Two Cranbourne Cup Final. The box draw doesn’t help tonight but she is an explosive beginner and with a clean getaway she should be able to find the first marker a length or two clear. She has won here previously in 30.13 but she has improved a fair bit since then and a sub 29.90 run is on the cards.

Duomo Bale turned in a super performance when placed here two runs back and a repeat of that effort will see him figure prominently, he doesn’t possess great early speed but he has great track sense and he will be strong in the run to the line.

Quantum Bale has been racing well here of late and it took the classy Marcus Joe a long time to reel him in last week, if he can hold out the favourite early he becomes a genuine winning prospect.

Earl Bale is ideally placed in the red draw and he should have the speed to make every post a winner. He isn’t overly strong but he has won two of four here and two runs back he led for a long way when placed behind the highly talented Clash Of Kings. Tonight’s race is a big drop in class and this really looks his race.

Crusade Marjen is a super talent but he is extremely hard to follow. He is very hit or miss at box rise but he has proven in his career to date that he can run some serious time when he lands on the lure.

Allen Icarus has been placed in 12 of 19 here and he has the speed to settle in the top two or three early.

Jack Silver rounds out the chances, he is better suited to the provincial circuit but there isn’t much speed drawn around him and he should get a clear run in the early stages.

Her Highness returns after having no luck in the Devonport Cup final and she should find this race more to her liking. Two starts back she set the Devonport track alight with a dazzling 25.37 win and if she can put on a similar display of speed she should burn them off early and go on to score with ease.

Dyna Brainiac should match motors with or sit just behind Her Highness in the early stages and he should be there at the end. He has turned in some great performances of late and he appears to be getting stronger with every run.

Julie Bale is dropping back in distance and she will be steaming home at the end, I dont think she is a winning chance but she could be a great prospect to anchor for second and third in your exotics.

Fleetwood Jay must also be respected, he is better than his form reads and he should show improvement from the good draw.

Beckenbauer is normally an explosive beginner and he faces a significant drop in class. From the rails draw he should be able to push through in the first 50m and if he holds them out he should be able to set up a big lead mid race.

Mepunga Ledger is flying at present and if he can reproduce his sizzling 25.15 winning effort from Warrnambool two runs back he will prove hard to hold out, the only concern with him is that he can miss the kick at times and he will need some luck in the early stages.

Rocka Hula Baby has had little luck since her handy 29.54 Sandown Park win and she should run an improved race tonight.

Dyna Keitaro has a slick 30.11 Pb here and he rounds out the chances, he will need luck from the middle pin but he has good speed and he can run a nice race at odds.

We’re Off Here has been racing in great style at Sandown Park of late and he appears better suited to this track. He will need some luck from the wide draw but most of his recent racing has been from wide draws and he has been able to handle himself quite well. He is normally an explosive beginner so I can see him leading throughout in this.

Got The Picture caught the eye with a strong 30.24 Cranbourne win last time and he is an improving type, with a clean getaway he should be able to sit just off the speed and he will be strong in the run home.

Dyna Fancy has the class edge and she returned to form with a zippy 29.61 Sandown Park win, she is obviously a great winning chance but I’m concerned that she may get burnt off mid race.

Radinka Bale is another chaser who likes to settle on the speed and she should follow We’re Off Here across in the early stages, she isn’t overly strong but she has a great record here and she is a must for your exotics.

Very even race to open but I think Dave Irwin has a strong chance of taking home the prize. Fancy Arjo bombed the start in her heat last week and found bother at the first bend, however she managed to hit the line well and she went down by just over a length. In early December she trialled at Lismore and recorded a blistering 24 flat, so she has genuine speed and tonight I am expecting her to settle much closer to the speed.

Littermate Fancy Dancer appears to be the danger, she is drawn to kick up and lead and if she does hold them out she should prove hard to reel in. She only went 30.30 in her heat but it was her first look at the track and I would expect her to improve dramatically on that time.

Star Torana showed smart early speed in her 30.33 heat win and she should give a great sight again, she will need to lead to win and a repeat of her 5.49 first section last week will give her every chance too.

Cyanide rounds out the chances, she should get a clear run early and she is showing plenty of promise.

Another very even race but it’s hard to look past the highly talented Martin Clegg. He has been placed in his only two tries over this journey and he recently returned to form with a brilliant 26.39 Bulli win. The box draw hasn’t done him any favours but with a clean getaway he should get every chance to lead and he is a different chaser when he lands on the bunny.

Zipping Saxon is an exciting prospect and he recently destroyed a field when scoring at Richmond in a scorching 30.48 and if he was too reproduce that effort he would get the cash with ease. The concern with him is that he can be slow to begin and from the middle pin he might get squeezed out early.

Kennelmate Zipping Carter is also showing loads of promise and he probably has a bit more genuine early speed, two starts back at Gosford he mustered pace quickly soon after box rise and he went on to score in a dazzling 29.55, if he can settle in the top two or three he should take a power of beating.

Cosmic Swiper could be the value, she has the speed to hold them out and she was far from disgraced in her debut run here last week.

Chica Destacada is a track specialist and after a couple of luckless runs she should be able to return to form tonight. She normally pings the lids and with the keen railer Fantastic Sid drawn underneath she should get a nice cart across in the early stages. Four starts back she exploded out of the traps and posted a 29.62 victory and that type of effort will see her score easily.

Winsome Mission is a super prospect and two starts back he overcame a few difficulties before scoring here in 29.92, on that occasion he was slow to begin and tonight I’m expecting him to step a lot better so he should go much quicker on the clock.

Bad Boy Sniper is drawn to get a nice sit behind the one, four and eight and he will be very strong in the run to the line.

Queen Esther rounds out the chances, she has enough speed to hold them out and she is racing with a lot more confidence.

Samus Allen has been racing in consistent form of late and I think she could be the value bet. Last week she was a tad slow to begin and she then had to work hard mid race to get into contention. She was far from disgraced in that effort and if she can step away cleanly like she normally does she will give a great sight at odds.

Zipping Tarn turned in a massive performance here last week when placed behind Dyna Villa and if she repeats that effort she will take a power of beating, I would prefer her drawn closer to the rail but last week’s effort was too good to ignore.

Cosmic Angel is well drawn out wide and he has a great record here, he should follow the seven across early and I’m expecting a strong performance.

Are Jip is a super talent but he is drawn poorly in the red, if he gets room early he is a massive chance but at the short odds I think he is a big risk.

Joane has the good draw and she has a great record here, four starts ago she pinged to the lead and scored in a slick 42.29 and from the red draw tonight she should be able to repeat the dose. Her past couple of runs haven’t been great but I’m expecting an improved run in this class.

Eleazar has won four of 11 here and she should be suited by the empty draw on her outside, she can be very unreliable at times but tonight I can see her dropping in behind the speed early and she will be strong in the run to the line.

Serash Bale is a handy Victorian stayer and she should run a cheeky race in her Wentworth Park debut, she will need some room early but with a slow beginner in box three she should get every chance.

Luzaka Icon rounds out the chances, she returned to form with a brilliant 42.10 Richmond win last time but this is a little harder, so maybe just included her in your exotic bets.

Great final and I think Space Star is potentially the best stayer in the land. He is drawn perfectly in the pink and with a clean getaway he should be able to assume control as they head into the first turn. Last week he posted an impressive 42.20 overall but I think tonight under the right conditions he is capable of going sub 41.80.

Starc should be suited to a rails draw and he scored a powerful 42.47 heat win. That was his first look at the track last week so I am expecting him to improve a fair bit on that run and I am also expecting him to settle a lot closer to the speed.

Zipping Rory is hard to follow but if he pings the lids he is capable of running the hands off the clock, he was pretty ordinary last week but he does have a habit of turning his form around quickly.

Double Rinse rounds out the chances, she looked a little lost in her debut here last week and I’m expecting her to improve quite a fair bit.

Crackerjack Max is a highly promising Victorian speedster and he really caught the eye with a sizzling 29.43 Sandown Park win last time. There is a small concern with him having his first look at the track but he does possess great early speed and that should allow him to be out on his own as they negotiate the first turn. I am expecting him to find the bunny early and if he does he should put a space in them mid race.

Longneck has the good draw and he is dropping in class tonight, he has a great record here and he should get a nice sit in the early stages.

Take It All is a veteran chaser and he is still going well, he will be looking to get wide at the first turn and if he avoids bother he should be able to make an impact.

Gilgamesh scored a brilliant 29.90 win here three runs back and if she pings the lids she will run a bottler, there is a bit of speed on her outside but if she gets room to move early she can figure prominently

Dyna Villa just seems to do everything right and he looks poised to grab his second Group One Victory and push his prize money over the 600k mark. The pink draw can sometimes be a challenge at Wentworth Park but he tends to race best from wide draws and he is just faultless at box rise. He should get plenty of room to muster speed in the early stages and I can see him leading throughout. He is short odds in such a great final but he rarely makes mistakes and he looks the goods.

Spring Leaf could be the value in the event, she really impressed me last week when she reeled in the strong My Boy Snoop. Normally she shows smart early speed in her races and if she can get the sit behind Dyna Villa she should be able to fill the quinella spot.

Shoulders returned to his best with a devastating 29.64 heat win and if he begins like that again he will give the favourite a run for his money. The concern with him is that he isn’t reliable early and he has a fair bit of speed drawn on his outside.

Assertive Bella is the only other winning hope, she has excelled since joining the Mackay kennel and she is drawn to get all the breaks in the run to the first turn.

Kurmond Goddess isn’t really well drawn in the pink but she can show smart early speed in her races and she should be suited by the drop in class. Two starts back she turned in a big effort when narrowly here in fast time and with some luck early she should be able to go one better tonight.

Cawbourne Kayono hasn’t had much luck since beating the talented Jumble here in December and he should be able to return to form here. He normally shows smart early speed and if he can sit behind the red in the early stages he will prove hard to hold out.

Von Ryan has a great record here and he has the speed to settle in the top three early, the box draw isn’t great but he normally steps well and he should put himself into contention early on.

Walt Bale is going to be a super stayer in the future but at present he is sprinting very well and he will take a power of beating from the red. Last week he didn’t have a lot of luck in a heat of the Paws but he was far from disgraced. Tonight’s race features a heap of early speed and that should allow him to get a nice sit just off the speed and he should then prove far too strong in the run home.

Jack Kade is likely to hold them out at the first bend and he should give a great sight on the bunny, he has returned to form with two great Bulli wins of late and he appears to be racing with a bit more strength. I dont think he can hold out Walt Bale but he should hold on to the quinella spot.

Abunda should match motors with him early and she has been placed in two of three over this journey, like Jack Kade she isn’t overly strong and she looks a better place prospect.

Barcelona Star is the interesting runner, she is much better than her form reads and she could improve from the pink draw.

2015 Group Two Warragul Cup heat tips & betting preview

WHILE most eyes will be focused on Wentworth Park this Saturday for the running of the Group One Paws of Thunder, there will also be plenty of action at Warragul with the heats of the Group Two Warragul Cup.

Run over 460 metres, the Warragul Cup was first run in 1956 when won by Rocketeer. Since that time it has grown to become one of the most competitive country cups in Victoria.

Six heats will be run of the 2015 series with each winner and the two fastest seconds professing through to the final on January 23.

Luca Neveelk is all class and he should have no trouble qualifying for another country cup final. He is the reigning Ballarat and Geelong Cup champ and he looks well placed in this event, he is going to cop some pressure from Big Ticket mid race but if he holds him out in the run to the first turn he should get the job done.

Big Ticket is well drawn in the pink and he recently qualified fastest for the Hobart Thousand Final. He has won two of three here and he has a dazzling 25.69 PB, if the favourite happens to make a mistake early he should be there to capitalise.

Dyna Alchemist is better than his form reads and he should get a nice cart into the race from Luca Neveelk, I dont think he can win but he is capable of sneaking into the quinella spot.

Great race and it should be a nice match race between Fuelish and Azza Azza Azza. I’m going to give the edge to the established star Azza Azza Azza. He has scored some devastating wins in his brief career to date and he resumed from a spell with a commanding 19.42 Healesville win last time out. He is extremely reliable early and he should lead from go to whoa.

Fuelish has won five of six to date and all of those wins have been in blistering times. Last time out he destroyed a quality lineup of chasers at Ballarat in 25.08 and a similar effort tonight would see him push Azza Azza Azza right to the limit.

Lamia Bale is all class and she has won two of three here, she is better suited to a longer trip but from the red she can run home into a place.

Wide open affair but the enormously talented Ride The Rails has the speed to lead all the way. He has won his past two starts at The Meadows over 600m and the drop back in distance is a concern, however his early sectionals in his win two runs back were off the charts so he has more than enough speed to match this lineup.

Droopy’s Bentley is the real deal and if he steps cleanly he will take a power of beating. Two starts back he set the Meadows track alight with a blistering 29.75 win and if you go back through his form he does have a 25.13 Shepparton win to his credit.

Dyna Nihilist is much better than his form reads and he has an impressive 25.78 PB here, he will get back early but he can charge home into the placings.

Another heat with great depth and I think the well drawn Caustic Bale can get the job done. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does must speed at a rate of knots and he should be able to improve on his 25.86 win here when having his first look at the track. He has scored some ridiculously fast wins in his career and if he holds out Quick Succession he will run the hands off the clock.

Quick Succession has been airborne since resuming from a five month spell and she is showing blistering early speed. With a clean getaway tonight she should be able to find the early lead and she will make Caustic Bale work overtime for victory.

Sisco Rage is suited to a wide draw and he is back in form with three wins on the trot in town. He may find these a bit too zippy early but he should be able to swoop home into the placings.

Jewel Bale is never far away in her races and she too has the ability to run home into some minor money.

Nockabout Aussie has a massive engine and one out he could probably match it with any chaser in the land, however he doesn’t like to be crowded in his races and from the red he is going to need a few things to go his way. Having said that, I still think he is good enough to score. He should get a nice sit in the early stages and once he gets into some open space he can then go into overdrive mid race.

Clash Of Kings is well placed in the two box and he is unbeaten over this trip, he can be a little hit or miss early but when he finds the bunny he tends to find a leg. With the lack of speed underneath he should get every chance to find the rail and early lead.

Quarrel Bale is suitably drawn out wide and he has a heap of talent, the only concern with him is that he can be slow to begin and he may get posted wide for most of the trip.

Xtreme Knocka rounds out the chances, he is a very fast chaser when given room early and he has the ability to ping the lids.

Over Limit has had a couple of months off but prior to going for a spell he scored two breathtaking Meadows wins in 29.66 and 29.67. From the red he should hold them out early and he will blow them away.

Ronray Spirit is racing in devastating form since joining the astute Terry Reid kennel and he is armed with explosive early speed. With an even getaway he should be able to go with Over Limit for most of the trip and he should hold on for the quinella spot.

Alex’s Entity is unbeaten in two runs here and he is coming off a brilliant 29.96 Meadows win, he can miss the kick at times but if he is given room to muster speed, he should be able to make an impact.

Paua Explosion had no luck at all here last week and she should be able to make amends from the good draw. Last week she was about to assume control before being dragged down and put out of the race, tonight there isn’t as much speed underneath her so if she gets away cleanly she should be able to burn them off at the first bend.

White Label is a strong type and she should get a nice run through along the rail at the first turn, she returned to form with a strong 35.06 Dapto win and she returns to a track where she has featured in four of seven tries.

Fay The Weapon is drawn to settle just behind Paua Explosion for most of the trip and she should hang on for some minor money.

Frost Yourself should match motors with or sit just behind Magic Earner for most of the trip and she is likely to fill the quinella spot. She was a handy 30.14 winner here five runs back and she has been placed in three of her four subsequent runs.

Cumberland Black has a poor record here but from the red he could grab some minor money, whilst Mann She’s Fast is an improving type and if she happens to ping the lids she has the talent to cause an upset.

8ANTONIO TYSON152330.38Tony Lagana

Antonio Tyson has been racing in solid form here of late and he looks perfectly placed in this event. He must lead to win but there is no speed at all in this event and with an even getaway he should have more than enough speed to get across at the first bend. His last 40m is the concern but he should set a nice lead mid race and I expect him to be too good for these.

Oran Bale turned in a monster effort when placed here two runs back and she will be charging home at the end, her box manners are poor but her past two first sections here have been a lot better than normal.

Parsec Bale charged home to score here on Monday in 30.49 and she appears to be getting better with every run. She will need a lot of luck at the first bend but if she gets it she will play a major role.

Pyke Bale has the good draw and he must be respected, he can’t win the event but he can sneak home into third spot.

Farmeroo has returned to his brilliant best of late and he appears well graded in this event. Two starts back he beat a tougher field here in a slick 29.91 and if he reproduces his 4.47 first section he should have no trouble leading all the way tonight.

Velo Girl has excelled since coming to SA and she should continue to hold her form. Two starts back she led all the way here when scoring in 30.08 and with a similar getaway tonight she should be able to sit just behind Farmeroo for most of the trip.

Spring Tyson could be the value, she is much better than her recent runs suggests and she should be better suited to this wider draw. She normally shows tremendous early speed and if the fancied two happen to miss away she may be off and gone with the prize.

Open race but I think the talented Cherokee Mclaren can run a big race. He normally races best when he can lead, however on Monday night he really caught my eye as he worked his way through the field before scoring a commanding 30.60 win here. He is surprisingly well drawn in the middle and if he can settle in the top two early he may just prove too strong for them.

Shamus’s Entity is the most talented chaser in the race and he is ideally drawn, the concern with him is that he is resuming from an injury enforced layoff and I’m not sure how forward he is. He generally lacks early speed but if he can hold a top three spot early he will prove hard to hold out.

Big Zap is a class act when on song but he has been a little off in his past couple of runs, he has had a month off so the freshen up might do him the world of good.

8SPRING CHARLOTTE666630.10Wendy Matcott

Good race and I think we can find some value with the ideally drawn Spring Charlotte. Her recent form isn’t flashy but she has been racing in FFA company and she hasn’t been receiving a lot of luck. With a clean getaway tonight I can see her finding the early lead and she is a much different chaser when she lands on the bunny.

Alderley Reform is the class factor and he is absolutely airborne at present, my concern with him is that the three is going to move hard left soon after box rise and he may get squeezed out early. He has won 11 of 14 here so he still must be respected thought.

Gunsmoke Mcbain should settle in the top two early and he has a consistent record here, I dont think he can win but he is a must for the exotics.

Dr. Kiaralee is the only other winning prospect, she was a slick 30.06 winner here last week and a similar effort here will see her test the favourite.

Very tough race to assess but I think if Young Gun Mcbain can step cleanly he should get a chance to lead throughout. He has a terrific record over this journey and his effort last time out behind Fancy Rick was super impressive. With a wide runner drawn on his outside he should get all the breaks early and he looks the goods.

Sporting Tears can ping the lids in his races and the pink draw shouldn’t be too much of a disadvantage. Two starts back he was far from disgraced when placed here and he is overdue for a change of luck.

Cash In Looper is a super talent and if he settles in the top three early he will blow them away, the only worry with him is that he can miss away and he does like to move wide in the run to the first turn.

Danyo’s Luke is well drawn and he has a habit of featuring from this box, I dont think he can win but you must include him in your exotic bets.

Babylon Club made in impressive SA debut when scoring in a sizzling 29.92 last time and if he pings away from the red he should lead all the way again. He isn’t going to be flashy odds but if he holds them out I can’t see him getting rolled.

My Party is well placed in a wide draw and she powered to the line in her recent 29.98 win here. She does her best racing when she can settle on the speed and with the lack of pace underneath her should get every chance to match motors with Babylon Club early.

Barnes Bay has an explosive turn of foot and if he is given room in the first 30m he can make an impact, he is resuming after a month off and if he is fit he must be respected.

Quick Kisses has been racing in good style and she races well from wide draws, I dont think she can win tonight but she can sneak into the minor end.

Hersi has recorded two top placings since coming from NSW and he is ready to break through. Two starts back he led for a long way and was only run down in the closing stages by a very smart chaser. There is no speed around him tonight so he should be able to lead them up and I would expect him to build up a big lead mid race.

Dakota Premier is going to be a short priced favourite and he is clearly a great chance, however at the short odds I’m willing to risk him. There is a heap of speed drawn on his outside and he is the type of chaser who needs plenty of room to muster speed.

Funky Chicken will be charging home at the end and he has won two of three here, he will be nice odds and he could be worth an each way ticket.

Victa Scott has the speed to hold them out and his effort here two runs back was great.

Gun Mcbain is absolutely flying at present and with a clean getaway he should gap them. He is racing with a lot more strength of late and he is putting the time on the board. This race has no speed at all and I can see him leading by three as they go past the past the first time.

Beach Wary will be steaming home late and from his good rails draw he should settle a little closer to the speed than normal. He is a very fast chaser when he gets into open space but I think the pink might get too far ahead in the middle stages.

Allen Zentax has improved with every run since coming from Victoria and he is drawn to get a nice sit behind Gun Mcbain.

Kalden Balerion is all class but he can be hit or miss early, if he steps with them he could run a big race.

Dashing Dee Dee is resuming after three weeks off and I’m expecting her to get the cash. She can miss the kick but she does muster speed quickly and she has the luxury of a very wide runner being drawn on her outside.

Bianca Bale has the good draw and she should have enough speed to hold them out early. Last time out she led early and was far from disgraced when placed behind the in form Long Gully Stevie.

Forest Bale was never headed in his handy 30.42 win here last week and he should run a cheeky race again, he will need to lead but there isn’t much speed in this event so he will get his chance.

Red Can is hard to follow at times but tonight he looks ideally placed in the wide draw and this is the easiest race he has contested for quite a while. If he can get away cleanly he should be able to settle in the first half of the field and he is likely to prove too strong for this lot.

Cuddletime Times has been racing well here of late and she will be suited by the empty draw underneath, she isn’t the best of beginners but she does muster fairly well and she should be able to settle in the top three as they head through the turn.

Getty Bale looks the leader from the red and she is getting better with every run, two starts back she really caught the eye when placed behind the talented Alex Tyson

Good race to kick off the night and I think the improving Dyna Tiber can get the job done. He is a full brother to the exciting Dyna Double One and he appears to be getting better with every run. In late December he scored two powerful Meadows wins over 525m and he then followed those efforts up with a slick 25.38 Warrnambool win. He has slow beginners drawn either side tonight so he should get every chance to salute.

Repayments is in good hands and he scored a commanding 23.89 Bendigo win last time out. He was a strong debut winner at The Meadows in 30.35 when coming from midfield and since then he has showed that he has a dazzling turn of foot and a clean getaway would see him settle in the top two early.

Lektra Utopia has the good draw and if he can reproduce the form which saw him win at Sale in 24.83 he should feature.

Quarterback is the interesting runner, he is still learning to race but he has scored three slick wins on the country circuit in his brief career to date.

Another good race and I think he kennelmates drawn out wide should control the race. Dyna Vikkers is still learning but since his debut win he has come really come along. Last time out he didn’t have much luck in a heat of the Paws Of Thunder but at his start prior he scored in devastating fashion at the Meadows in a slick 30.04. His box manners aren’t great but if he gets room to muster he should put himself into contention at the first turn.

Ikaku Bale is another with a heap of potential and he probably has more genuine early speed than the pink. With a keen railer drawn underneath he should get a nice cart across as they head into the first bend and he should be able to settle in the top three as they head through the turn.

High Class was a strong 29.47 winner here two runs back and if she gets away cleanly she will prove hard to reel in, she also scored over 600m recently so she will be strong in the run home.

Shanlyn Patch has shown a return to form in recent weeks and if he can step cleanly from the pink draw he should make an impact. Two starts back he posted a strong 34.31 win here from a wide draw and on that occasion he showed plenty of early speed. If he gets across he should break away mid race and he will prove hard to reel in.

Lektra Hawk is looking for this distance range and he should be able to settle a lot closer to the speed than normal. Last time out he turned in a big performance when placed behind Marcus Joe at the Meadows, so he should appreciate the drop in class tonight.

Mepunga Treasure has a big engine but her record of three wins and no placings from ten starts indicates that she relies heavily on luck, from the four she will need everything to go her way but if she happens to land in a prominent position early she will prove very hard to hold out.

Eyeful Of Bling has a big engine and he overcame a lot of difficulties to score here last week in 29.91. The time wasn’t flashy but the manner in which he won was very impressive, four starts back he ran the hands off the clock when winning at Sale and if given a clear run tonight he will be running some serious time.

Sam Harper has found a leg in recent weeks and from the red he should give them something to catch. Last week he posted a brilliant 18.73 off the back and if he repeats that he is going to be right in the mix as they turn for home.

Angel Of Music has been placed in four of five over this trip and she will go with the red for the first 300m so she must be included in your exotic bets.

Feel The Wrath could be the value in the event, he is drawn to get a nice sit in the early stages and he is very strong in the run to the line.

Mepunga Ranger has scored two huge wins at Warrnambool in recent weeks and with a clean getaway tonight he will take a power of beating at nice odds. He has won here previously on two occasions but the only concern with him is that he can bomb the start at times. The six should give him a nice cart across early and that should allow him to settle in a prominent position.

Deadly Vane is expected to start a short price favourite and if he pings away he should make light work of this lineup. He is blessed with dazzling speed but the only concern is that Where’s The Surf will be looking for the fence early and he might crunch him soon after the start.

Morningside doesn’t win very often but she is rarely far away, she recently trialled well at Ballarat and she is a must for the exotics.

Opec Bale continues to impress and its hard to tip against him after he posted a devastating 42.45 Meadows win last time out. I dont expect him to lead tonight but he should settle in the first half and he should then go into overdrive mid race. This is a pretty weak lineup and he has slow beginners drawn on either side so he appears to have everything going for him tonight.

Mepunga Tiara is much better than her recent form reads and she showed a return to form with a strong placing here last week over 595m. With a clean getaway I can see her leading and she should give a great sight on the bunny.

Time Dimension is looking for this distance range and he is a must for the exotics. He is the type of chaser who will refuse to go past the leader so he could be a great prospect to anchor for second and third in exotic bets.

Go Jetta Go rounds out the chances, he is in good hands and he will be charging home.

Quasi Bale is an exciting staying prospect and he set the track alight when winning here last week in 33.89. With a wide runner drawn on his outside he should get a clear passage early and if he settles in the top three he should get the cash.

Texas Titan his the line well when scoring here last week in 34.48 and if given room in the early stages he should be in the mix again.

Cornelius Fudge has found his best form in recent weeks and although he is poorly drawn tonight he still must be considered, he has a great record at this venue and he only needs an ounce of luck as they head through the first bend.

Coulta Rock should be suited by the drop back in distance, he has won here previously in a slick 34.22 and with the lack of speed in this race he should get every chance to settle in a forward position.

Marcus Joe is well placed in the pink and he looked super impressive when scoring at The Meadows in 29.99 from this draw. There doesn’t appear to be a lot of early speed in this event so with a clean getaway he should be able to cross and assume control as they head for the back straight.

My Bro Fabio returns from injury and he should be primed for a bold first up showing, my concern with him is that he might show a bit more early speed fresh and that might see him get strung up in traffic at the first turn, however he is a beast and he still must be respected.

Dream It had little luck when resuming from a spell at Bendigo and he should turn in an improved performance, he has a sizzling 29.23 PB here and I can see him easily settling in the top three as they head through the first turn.

Peloton Bale rounds out the chances, he doesn’t win very often these days but he is very strong and he can run home into a place.

Footluce Diva has raced extremely well since return from SA and she is perfectly placed in the pink draw. With a clean getaway she should be able to settle in the top three early and she can then go into overdrive mid race.

Money Come Back should match motors with Scenic Shot in the early stages and he should give a great sight, the last 60m is a worry but he should have a nice lead as they pass the back straight.

Scenic Shot struggles to run out the trip but he is armed with brilliant early speed and he must be included in your exotic bets.

Tekki Minx could be the value, she has been placed in seven of her past eight starts with five of those efforts being over this track and trip.

The well graded Weblec Bells is ideally placed in the pink draw and she will take a power of beating. She has won five of 11 over this trip and with some speedy beginners drawn underneath she should get a nice cart across in the early stages. She is going to be fairly short but this really does look to be her race, it may be best to anchor her up front in your exotics.

Frank Furter should pounce on the early lead and he should give a great sight, he was very unlucky here last week and if he does find the bunny he will give the favourite something to catch.

Dyna Glinda has the good draw and she should get a nice sit in the early stages, she isn’t the most reliable chaser but from the red she must be respected.

Soho Rhythm loves racing here and she can show early speed, if she happens to hold them out she will prove very hard to reel in.

Great race and I think the exciting Izzey Bale can figure prominently. Two starts back he set the Warrnambool track alight with a dazzling 25.11 win and prior to that he went sub 30 seconds at the Meadows. If he can step cleanly tonight he should be able to hold them out at the first bend and he will be running some serious time on the lure.

Grand Intention has won five of six to date and the past three wins have been in blistering times, the box draw won’t help but he is armed with a devastating turn of foot and he only needs a little room in the first 50m to be able to put himself into contention.

Smith And Wesson has now had four runs since a spell and he should be ready to fire, he has enough speed to settle in a prominent position and he could be the value in the event.

Alexis Kelton has a great record here over 595m and she will be charging home at the end.

Another great race and it appears to be a match race between the seven and the eight. I’m giving the edge to Fernando Bale, two starts back he showed a devastating turn of foot when scoring at the Meadows in a blinding 29.71 and with a similar effort tonight he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Margins is well placed in the wide draw and he returned to form with a blistering 27.73 Bendigo win, he doesn’t have same early speed as Fernando Bale but if he can be within four lengths off the back straight he should make it interesting as they hit the line.

Usain I’m Nutty has been placed in three of four here and he will be charging home at the end, he is better suited to a wide draw but he should get plenty of cover from the two in the early stages.

Lady Abigail turned in a great performance when having her first look at the track last week and she would have derived a lot of benefit from that run. The box draw hasn’t done her any favours but she does muster well and she will be very strong in the run home.

Georgina is much better than her recent form reads and if she can step cleanly she should put herself into contention early in the race, if you go back through her form she does have a slick 30.46 Ipswich win to her credit.

Spookie’s Gift has shown an enormous amount of talent in his brief career and if he gets a clear run early he will take a power of beating, he is still learning and he will continue to get better.

Raging Thunder hasn’t had much luck since his impressive 30.43 Lismore win and he could be the value in the event, he should get room to muster speed in the early stages and I’m certain he would have trialled at the track.

Good race and I’m going to give the edge to the red Renouf’s Magic, last time out he was smart to begin and he chased extremely hard when going down narrowly in good time. From the red he should be able to hold the early lead and I think they will have their work cut out reeling him in.

Velvet Rumble blew away her rivals when scoring a devastating 24.03 Lismore win last time and if she handles the first bend she will prove hard to hold out.

Elusive Desire is the interesting runner, he has had little luck in his efforts here but he has shown a lot of talent at Lismore and if he can get some room early he might run a big race at nice odds.

Midnight Tammy rounds out the chances, she was a slick 30.17 winner here two runs back and she is in the capable hands of Tony Brett, so I would expect her to continue to improve with more racing.

Buenos Cloud has been racing in very consistent style here of late and with a clean getaway he should get every chance to lead throughout. Last time out he showed great mid race pace and was just held out by the highly talented Fabulous Storm, if he can reproduce that effort he will figure in the finish.

Don’t Go Quietly has the good draw and he is getting close to another win, he is likely to settle midfield but he is very strong and he only needs a few gaps mid race and he will be right in the mix.

Mr. Brand is another run on type and he has been placed in six of eight over this journey, he has turned in some fantastic performances of late and he can feature with some luck at the first turn.

Lotus Blossom is a front runner and she should match motors with Buenos Cloud for most of the trip, her last 40m isn’t great but she should hold on for a place.

Messidonna Cloud was smartly placed from this draw last week and if he steps on terms he should have sufficient speed to hold them out and make every post a winner. Another reason I’m very keen on this one is the fact that he has Grim Creeper drawn directly on his outside, he is normally a very slow beginner and he will be looking to move wide as they head into the first turn.

Marlisa will settle in the top three early and she caught the eye when winning at Ipswich last time in a zippy 30.56. She hasn’t run much time in her two wins here but she appears to have improved a bit so I would expect her to get down to the 30.10 mark with a clear run.

Mister To Us is the run on type in the event, he has won five of 13 over this journey and he is armed with an almighty finish, I dont think he will win but he could be a great anchor for second and third in your exotics.

Stella Nights will be well supported and she is an obvious chance, she has been missing it away of late so with a better getaway tonight she should be able to figure in the finish.

Spanish Queen is aiming for a hat trick of wins over this track and trip and I think she is well placed to do it. With the speedy Summer’s Bug drawn underneath, she should get a nice cart across in the early stages and she should then be able to burn them off mid race. She continues to improve on the clock with every run here so it wouldn’t surprise me to see her go sub 30 seconds.

Tear Away Size is a seriously fast chaser when given a clear run and if she can cross from the outside they won’t know which way she went. I’m not putting her on top because she is desperate for the inside and she is going to need a lot of things to go her way from box seven.

Abby’s Fantasy is drawn to hold a prominent spot early and she is never far away over this trip, whilst Gumlow Star also represents some value, her recent runs here haven’t been too bad and she is capable of matching it with this lot.

Top Four: 4 – 7 – 1 – 5

Bon Yeo is a promising type and he continues to get better with every start. He has been steaming home over the 520m journey here of late and he gives every indication that he will have no trouble covering the extra distance. There is a bit of speed drawn underneath him so he should be able to lob onto the rail early and then make a strong move mid race.

Dzeko is perfectly placed in the wide draw and she motored home when placed here last week in fast time, she is likely to get back again in the early stages but she has a big engine and she will run all day.

Good Call Paul will start favourite and rightly so after scoring a blistering 29.76 win here, he is obviously a winning hope but he got knocked around last time out and I can see that happening again from the middle pin.

Jonathon’s Hope is drawn to settle in the top two and he should run a cheeky race.

Top Four: 4 – 7 – 5 – 1

Great race and we get to see the return of Tony Brett’s star sprinter Flash Reality. It’s not an easy assignment for him first up but I’m sure connections have him primed for a bold showing. He has a great record here having won 11 of 15 and his 29.58 PB is eye popping.

Gunspeed is drawn to hold a forward spot early and he is capable of running time when on the bunny. His most recent efforts haven’t been flashy but I would expect him to improve from the good draw.

Le Sirenuse was very unlucky in a heat of the Paws Of Thunder last time out and if she pings the lids she can put the heat on the favourite for most of the trip.

I think the value in the race could be Winged Elite, he turned in a strong effort when placed here last week and he could be a nice place bet again.

Good final and I think the Victorian Ralphy Cinel can run a big race tonight, last week he turned in a strong performance when placed here over 520m and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. Tonight I am expecting him to pounce on the early lead and he should make every post a winner.

Hougenie has been placed in her past five starts over this journey and she shouldn’t be too far away again, she has been beginning well of late and she should go with Ralphy Cinel for most of the journey.

Kidatee Croc has won three on the trot and the most recent victory was here in a blistering 34.82, tonight’s race is a bit harder but he should be up for the challenge.

Regal Lauryn is suitably drawn out wide and if she pings she will blow them away, the only concern with her is that she can bomb the start at times.

What A Thursday has been racing in much stronger company of late over 600m and she should be suited by the drop back in distance. Tonight she has no speed at all drawn on her outside and if she can step cleanly she should have enough speed to drive through and take up the early lead, she is very strong in the run to the line and this really looks her race.

Cute To Boot powered home to score here last week in 30.55 and she is a great chance again, I’m a tad worried she might get too far back early, so maybe best to anchor her for second and third in the exotics.

Fred Sealey is never far away in this company and he showed signs of his best form when placed here last week.

Big Dac rounds out the chances, he is suited to a wide draw and he scored a commanding 22.98 win here on Sunday over the 395m journey.

Tough race to finish but I think we can find some value with Interrogated. Since coming from NSW he has been placed in two of his three tries here and he is overdue for a change of luck. With no speed drawn around him tonight he should be able to assume control soon after box rise and he may prove too strong for this lot.

Made That Way was far from disgraced when he finished just outside the placings here last time and he will be suited by the drop in class, if he can step cleanly he can hold a forward spot early and he should run a nice race at each way odds.

Remember Me Rose doesn’t have flashy form but she is very strong and from the rails draw she may be able to settle a bit closer to the speed than normal.

Yarramundi Hanna has been racing well without winning of late and with the empty draw underneath she should get every chance to score. In late December she recorded two strong placings here over 515m and she has given every indication that this trip will suit.

Couta Model is expected to start favourite and she should give a great sight. Two starts back she posted an impressive 30.28 victory here when leading throughout and if she can handle the extra journey she should prove hard to reel in.

Johnny Guitar could be the value, he turned in a great effort when placed here last time and he is suited by the wide draw.

Rochelle has the speed to settle in the top two early and she might be able to hang on for a place.

Kalden Kostello is dropping considerably in class and he should ping and lead from go to whoa. Two starts back he posted a brilliant placing here over this journey and with the lack of speed on his outside he should get all the breaks.

Former NSW speedster Hot Sauce comes to SA after a string of luckless efforts, he has had a couple of months off and he should be ready to fire first up from a spell. He has scored some very quick wins on the provincial circuit in his home state.

Boss Power Bull is never far away over this journey and he is suited by the wide draw.

Allen Hodney must also be respected, his form looks terrible but he has been racing in strong company in Victoria and he will be looking to improve.

The first heat is a cracker with the reigning Melbourne Cup champion Dyna Villa taking on up and coming star Fernando Bale. It’s hard to look past Dyna Villa, he is making his debut here but he is pretty faultless at box rise and if he finds the early lead it’s hard to see anything reeling him in.

Fernando Bale is the real deal and he last time out at The Meadows he turned in a devastating performance when scoring in a blistering 29.71. He has won three on the trot and on each occasion he has improved by at least four lengths on the clock. He is still learning the caper but he has tremendous speed and if he handles the track he can test the favourite.

Ella Has Class has scored some great wins here of late but she meets some super talented chasers tonight and her chances look limited to the placings.

Musquin Bale has been a great campaigner for a long time and if he gets across he can make an impact.

Chica Destacada returns to her favourite track and with an even getaway she should make light work of this lineup. She has won nine of 17 here and she consistently runs sub 5.45 to the first marker, there is very little speed drawn on her outside so she should get every chance to find the bunny early.

Iva Vision won the shootout at Sandown in November and he is capable of running some serious time when given a clear run, he posted an average 29.93 in a trial here last week but that was his first look at the track and I would expect him to show a lot of improvement.

Ikaku Bale is a member of a highly promising litter and he is getting better with every run, this is a big rise in class but he has the talent to be a factor.

Cosmic Angel has a sizzling 29.62 PB here and if he can cross from the wide draw he can make an impact, he is better suited to a rails draw but he has raced well from wide draws in recent weeks.

Very open affair but I think track specialist Rue De Kahn can cross and get the job done. She had been struggling for a while but in recent weeks she has turned in some great efforts at Gosford with her latest effort being a top placing in the Gosford Cup Final. I tend to think she races better here and although she is a keen railer, the wide draw shouldn’t pose too many problems.

Winsome Jacko is an enormous talent and he really impressed when scoring here in a blistering 29.61 four runs back, the draw is a big concern tonight but if he can settle in the top three as they head for the back straight he should be in the finish.

Buckle Up Mason is a classy veteran and he is still racing well, he has the speed to hold them out early and if he does he will give them something to catch.

First heat for the stayers and I think we can find some value with the classy Queenslander Mullaway. He didn’t have much luck in his debut here and he looked a little strange to the track, with that run under his belt he should handle the turns a lot better. He has scored some devastating wins at Albion Park and if he can settle in the top two he will put on quite a show.

Starc is much better than his recent form reads and he is drawn to get a nice sit behind Kiltah Magic in the early stages, he is quite strong in the run home and if he handles the track he should figure in the finish.

Zipping Rory has the class edge and he loves racing here, he can be hard to follow but if he pings away they won’t know which way he went.

Stargate System continues to improve and he is capable of running home into a place.

Star Tassie chaser Buckle Up Wes looks well placed in the pink and he looks set to make a big impact. He appeared to be a tad disappointing at Hobart last time but he only went down by a length and they did post a very quick time in that event. Tonight he returns to a track where he has won four of eight and has a blistering 29.56 PB.

My Boy Snoop returned to his brilliant best with a devastating 29.27 Gosford win last time and in that event, the brilliant Anything Less had every chance to reel him in. The draw is against him tonight but if he gets room to muster he will prove very hard to hold out.

Kiss Me Ketut has been racing in consistent fashion and he has the speed to lead, he is a couple of lengths off his best but this heat isn’t overly strong.

Spring Leaf is flying at present but she is having her first look at the track, so she will need plenty of luck at the first bend.

Winsome Mission is an exciting prospect and he must obviously be respected, I’m a little worried about the box draw though as I think he may get posted wide for most of the trip.

The second stayers heat sees the up and coming Space Star take on a fairly mediocre bunch. From the pink draw he should be able to drive across to the early lead and he has proven in the past that he is capable of reeling off breathtaking sectionals when he lands on the bunny.

Zipping Maggie loves racing over this track and trip and if she pings away she should match motors with Space Star for quite a while, I dont think she has the brilliance to go with him mid race so the quinella spot looks best for her.

Flying Twist is a consistent stayer and she has enough speed to settle in the first half of the field, she will need some luck early but if the favourite makes a mistake she could be there to capitalise.

This is probably the best race of the night, we have Dyna Double One who is probably the most talented chaser in the land taking on the champ Allen Deed who smashed the Meadows track record last time out. I’m going to give Dyne Double One the edge, I know he is still young and very inexperienced but his effort last time out when placed in the Silver Chief Final was enormous and he appears drawn to get a clear run tonight. If he handles the track it will be interesting to see what he does on the clock.

Allen Deed is flying at present and his effort when smashing the Meadows track record was stunning. He is going to need some luck as they head into the first turn but I would love to see him land behind Dyna Double One as they head for the back straight.

Oakvale Destiny was unlucky not to win the Cranbourne Cup last time out and if the favourites happen to make some mistakes she can cause an upset.

Midnight Flynn is a promising speedster and he is drawn to give a nice sight, he isn’t overly strong so he will need to hold them out early to score.

I am a massive fan of Anything Less and I think he is well placed in this event. He is going to settle in the back half of the field but this race features quite a few front runners who fold up in the closing stages. If he can avoid bother early he should be able to get into some open space and make a strong move mid race and I would then expect him to run over the top in the final stages.

Jewel Action has the good draw and she should hold them out early, she isn’t very strong in the final 30m but she does have a great record here and has she has posted a sizzling 29.66 here in the past.

Dyna Vikkers is a full brother to Dyna Double One and he is a super talent in his own right. Last time out at the Meadows he smashed his rivals when scoring in a smart 30.04.

Winsome Prince will start favourite and it’s hard to knock a dog who has won 14 of 15 starts, however he was a tad disappointing when winning here last week and I think he is under the odds.

Whittaker has been racing well here of late and I think he can get the better of the likely favourite Are Jip. He is only an average beginner but he does muster speed quickly and with the two and three likely to run cover for him early he should be able to zip away off the back straight.

Izzey Bale is a promising Victorian speedster and he set the track alight when winning at Warrnambool last time in 25.11, if he can handle the first turn he will give the red a run for his money.

Are Jip has a ridiculous amount of talent but he is desperate to get wide and from box three he is likely to find bother.

Army Surplus is an interesting runner, he isn’t very reliable but when he does ping and find the lure early he is capable of running very quick sectionals.

Final chance to advance in the series and classy Victorian chaser Dyna Yemen looks poised to make an impact. His recent form isn’t great but he hasn’t been experiencing a lot of luck in his most recent efforts and with a slow beginner drawn on his outside I think he will get a chance to regain some confidence. He has scored some blistering wins in his brief career to date and if he holds them out he will make onlookers take notice.

Ritza Hattie is all class and she returned to the winners list last time out when capturing the Gosford Cup final, she exits the same draw tonight and she has a tremendous record here. She will need to cross the red to win but if she doesn’t she looks a safe quinella prospect.

Farmer’s Gold is very hit or miss early but he is well drawn nearer the inside and he should get a nice sit early, I dont think he can win but he must be included in your exotic bets.

Very open race to kick off the night and Pyromania appears drawn to figure prominently. He has strung together four impressive performances and on each occasion he appears to be showing improvement. Last time out he showed a great turn of speed when posting a strong 30.27 win here and from the red he should be able to repeat the dose.

Linco Bale is a strong chaser and his effort to score at Geelong three runs back in 26.11 was massive. From box three he should be able to find the rail in the early stages and as they head through the bend he should be able to drive into a threatening position.

Hula is a member of a promising litter and she showed improvement when posting a zippy 25.59 Warrnambool win, if she can begin cleanly she should be able to carve across into a prominent position early and she should give a great sight.

Gunnadoo Blade has a heap of talent and if he is switched on he will run a bottler but my concern with him is that he doesn’t like to be crowded and he will need everything to go his way in the early stages.

Quarterback is a highly promising type and he is drawn to get all the breaks. Two starts back he showed a dazzling turn of foot soon after box rise when posting a brilliant 25.25 Ballarat win. If he can step cleanly from the red he should get plenty of room to drive through early and he should put a space in them mid race.

Spring Grace is a reliable beginner and she should lead to the first turn, she may get burnt off in the middle stages but she will be fairly strong in the run home and she should fill the quinella spot.

Bronco De Jurer is much better than his recent form reads and he is drawn to get a nice sit in the early stages, I dont think he can win the event but he could be a good dog to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets.

Dyna Brainiac can ping the lids in his races and he has been placed in his four tries over this trip, if he goes around at silly odds he may be worth an each way ticket.

Another open event and I think former smart QLD stayer Rain Stream can get the job done. Last time out she overcame a slow start and powered to the line when solidly placed at Geelong over 680m and with an even getaway tonight I would expect her to settle much closer to the speed. She has won some good quality races in her home state and after two runs for her new kennel I am expecting her to find her best form.

Smart Maxwell is better suited to a shorter journey but I am expecting him to lead clearly tonight and he should be able to build up a big break mid race, the last 50m is going to be a worry but he might have a big enough lead to hold on.

Setsuna Bale continues to improve with every run and she has been crying out for this distance range, two starts back she scored a very strong 37.75 Shepparton win and a similar effort tonight will see her hit the scoreboard.

Berry Blitz should match motors with Smart Maxwell early or at worse sit just behind him. She isn’t overly strong but she has been racing against strong company of late and she should appreciate the class drop.

Chrichton Bale has been racing without luck in recent times but he looks suited to the wide draw tonight and if he can step on terms with them he should have more than enough speed to get across. In recent times he has been getting knocked over soon after box rise and therefore he has never been a factor, earlier in his career he showed that when given room to muster speed he is capable of reeling off super impressive sectionals.

Trip To Cairns has the coveted red draw and she should be able to drive through into a prominent position in the early stages, last time out she overcame a slow start and wide draw when posting a strong 34.84 win here, from the inside she should settle a lot closer to the pace and she will be very strong in the run to the line.

Vernon Bale was far from disgraced when placed behind Trip To Cairns here last week and he has the speed to settle in the top three early, he should have derived a lot of benefit from his last run and I expect him to be thereabouts again.

Dixie Lane is another who will settle near the speed and she has a solid 34.73 PB here, if she can settle in the top two early she should feature in the placings.

Opec Bale keeps going from strength to strength and he may be the next big thing in the staying ranks. Last week he made is 725m debut and after a slow start he picked himself up quickly and rounded them up mid race before scoring in commanding style. His time of 42.54 was three lengths faster than any other qualifier and with a clear run in the early stages tonight he should probably go a little quicker.

Evie Jane returned to form with a strong 42.72 heat win and she appears to have regained her confidence, last week she surprisingly pinged to the lead and never looked back. I can’t see her leading again tonight but she should settle in the first half and she will be quite strong in the run home.

Roethlisberger won his heat from a wide draw and he should get a clear run early from the pink, he has been showing a lot more early speed in his most recent efforts and with another good getaway he should be able to make an impact.

Allen Gundam could be the value in the event, he is a little one paced but he will run all day and he should continue to improve after two solid efforts over this journey in recent weeks.

Ride The Rails relished the step up in distance here last week when destroying his rivals in a blistering 34.20. The inside draw is probably a bit of a disadvantage but if he can step cleanly he should be able to push through and hold them out in the run through the first bend, his middle section last week was off the charts and I would expect him to put a space in them mid race again. He is likely to start around the even money mark or just under and in a field like this I think that is value.

Rumero Reason hit the line strongly in his 34.61 heat win and if he can find the rail in the early stages he should turn in another strong effort, slow beginnings have cost him in the past but he has won four of 11 over this trip.

Waymore’s Blues should settle in the top three early and he should be improved by his debut effort over 600m last week, his time of 34.65 was just average but I think he can take a few lengths off that tonight.

Where’s The Surf rounds out the chances, he led for a long way before getting tired in the run home last week. That was his first try over this distance range so I would expect him to show improvement.

Quarrel Bale is a super talent and his effort when placed here last week was eye catching. After a slow start he found himself well back in the field, however mid race he made a strong move and he only went down by around a length in very fast time. If he can begin a little better tonight he should settle in the first half and if he is that close I would expect him to assume control as they go past the second marker.

Wind Whistler is yet to win here but he has been placed in all nine tries here, he is going to settle well back in the field but he is blessed with a massive finish and if the gaps open at the right time mid race he will be right there at the finish.

Top Secret should fire to the early lead and he will set a cracking pace, his last 40m isn’t great but he should have a nice lead mid race and if they shuffle up behind he may just steal the prize.

Zell Bale is poorly drawn in the red but there isn’t much speed around him so he may be able to settle in the top two or three early, he is quite strong in the run home so if he settles that close he should figure prominently.
