Scanez Cee hasn’t had much luck in recent weeks and from the red draw he should be able to turnaround his form. If you go back through his form, he did post an impressive 31.11 Ballarat win from this draw and on that occasion he showed smart early speed, if he can reproduce that type of form he will take a power of beating.

Soda Man is going to be well fancied and he is the obvious danger. He is a member of a strong kennel and he powered to the line in his smart 23.96 win here recently.

Bralyn Daffodil could be the value, she had little luck in her Victorian debut and she is highly talented when on song.

Select What rounds out the chances, she is better suited to a rails draw but she is coming back after a month off and she should fire fresh.

Top Four: 1 – 4 – 6 – 8

Pud is an exciting prospect and with an ounce of luck early she should get the cash. In November/December she scored two brilliant Sandown wins and in one of those victories she reeled off blistering early and mid race sectionals. With slow beginners drawn on either side she should get every chance to drive through to the early lead and score.

Nail Clipper will be steaming home late and he recently caught the eye in his commanding 25.28 Shepparton win. He can bomb the start at times but he is suited by the wide draw and he looks good for the quinella spot.

Filius Fitwick is never far away in his races and he recently recorded a top Geelong placing when beaten by the in form Crackerjack Max, he will settle mid field and he can run home into a place.

Ireland’s Force must be kept safe, she comes here with strong Tassie form and she has recently joined the powerful Auld kennel.

Top Four: 7 – 8 – 3 – 5

Kalden Balerion looks well graded in this event and with some luck in the first 50m he should get the job done, two starts back he scored an explosive 22.11 win here over 388m and he should be able to turn in a similar effort tonight. With a keen railer drawn in six and wide runner drawn in eight, he should be afforded all the breaks in the early stages and he looks a moral.

Beach Wary was a top 35.12 winner here over 600m recently and he will be powering to the line, I dont think he can pick up Kalden Balerion but he should fill the quinella spot.

Zac Bale is perfectly placed in the pink and he shouldn’t be too far away, this is his toughest test for a while but he is racing in great form.

Spring Charlotte could be the value, she can ping the lids at times and she is a different chaser when she lands on the bunny.

10INDIVIDUALIZE375430.55Lisa Rasmussen

Dakota Fancy scored a sizzling 29.95 win here at her second start in November and she should be ready to fire first up from a spell. On that occasion she showed a good turn of speed early with Macca’s Spirit likely to carve up the dogs on the inside, she is likely to zip away as they head through the first turn.

Irish Keepsake is better suited to a wider draw but she should be very strong in the run to the line and I expect her to finish over the top and fill the quinella spot.

Macca’s Spirit should settle near the speed and she should give a bold sight for most of the journey.

Cuddletime Times must be included in your exotic bets, she was solidly placed here two runs back and she will be suited by the widish draw.

This race appears to be a race to the first turn because whoever holds the lead as they head for the back straight should get the cash. I’m going with Dakota La Flash, she was a bit disappointing when winning here two runs back in 30.60 but I think she can improve immensely on that run and if she holds them out she should prove too strong.

Dr. Kiaralee has been racing in great form of late and she should sit just behind Dakota La Flash for most of the journey, she races best when on the bunny but she is still good enough to pick her up.

Miss Footluce will be hitting the line strongly and she isn’t without a chance, she has been placed in her past four starts here and she is due for a change of luck.

Couta Model has the good draw and she was a strong 30.38 winner here, this is a rise in class for her but she should be able to make the step up.

Top Four: 2 – 3 – 5 – 1

Boojerooma is a class act and she should be able to ping and lead all the way tonight. She has been sparingly raced of late but she has proven in the past that she does go well fresh. There is very little speed drawn underneath her so she should get all the breaks as they charge into the first turn.

Bon Choix had no luck when resuming from a spell last time and she should run an improved race, her box manners aren’t great but she does muster speed at a rate of knots.

Oran Bale continues to impress and she will be charging home at the end, I think she might get too far back to win but she is a great chaser to anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Madam Crash must be respected, she is better than her form reads and she is suited to a wide draw.

Good quality race and I think the powerful Better Call Saul can get the cash. He has been a little off in recent weeks but tonight he finds himself in a race where there are four potential leaders and I’m expecting there to be a fair bit of bumping up on the speed. If he can get a nice sit just behind them I think he can then run over the top of them late in the race.

Taser Mcbain is flying at present and she should lead for a long way, her last 40m isn’t great but she appears to be getting stronger and stronger with every run.

Allen Illem is another run on type and he should find the rail very easily, if he can avoid trouble at the first bend he should be there at the end.

Spring Amanda is all class but I’m concerned that her lack of mid race speed might ensure that she will be posted wide for most of the journey.

Sporting Tears is dropping considerably in class tonight and if he can step away with them he should have enough early burn to cross and find the fence, he has proven in the past that he can run time on the lure and with the lack of speed drawn in boxes one through to five, he should get every chance to show his best.

Quick Kisses is drawn poorly but her effort here last week was too good to ignore, she should settle just behind Sporting Tears for most of the journey and she should fill the quinella spot.

He’s A Villian is well drawn nearer the inside and he should be steaming home at the end, he rarely wins these days but he is a great place prospect.

Yambla Mick has recorded two solid placings of late and if he happens to ping he could return to the winners list.

Mr. Leonardo has been sparingly raced of late but when he is on song he is capable of reeling off some explosive sectionals. Two starts back he led all the way here in 30.35 and if he can turn in a similar effort tonight he should prove hard to reel in again.

Grande To Excel is hit or miss early but when he steps and is given room to muster speed he is highly talented. There is a bit of speed on his outside but with the slow beginners underneath he should be afforded all the breaks early.

Firecette beat a classy lineup here last week in 30.13 and he should be in the mix again, the only concern is that there is a bit of speed on his outside so he will need a few things to go his way as they head into the first bend.

Quality lineup is set to do battle and all eight runners have a legitimate chance at winning. I’ve decided to go with the speed Van Carrho Flash, three starts ago he speared the lids and didn’t look back when posting a blistering 29.69 win here. If he can repeat that type of effort he should be able to make every post a winner.

Wild Soul is all class and he always finds a way to figure in the finish in this class, once again he hasn’t drawn well but he should settle mid pack and then make a strong move as they head past the back straight.

Punishment has the ideal draw and if he finds the bunny early he will be running some serious time, the only concern with him is that if he doesn’t lead he can’t win.

Galilee Spirit has a tremendous turn of early speed and if he steps cleanly he should run a big race also, there isn’t much speed underneath him so he should be afforded a clear passage early.

This really is an open race and its worth just looking for over’s.

Small field but a classy lineup of stayers are set to do battle and it’s hard to look past Luna Jinx. She isn’t well placed in the red draw but with the small field she should be able to get into some open space as they head past the winning post the first time, four starts back she posted a blistering 43.07 victory here and a repeat effort will see her win with ease.

Psychotic Gold has a tremendous record here and she should be better for the run last time because she was first up after a couple of months off. There isn’t much between her and the red talent wise but I think Luna Jinx will settle in front of her so therefore she will have to settle for the quinella spot.

Zara Mclaren should fill the trifecta spot, she is racing in great heart having won four of her past eight.

Gun Mcbain is in dazzling form and he appears to be getting stronger all the time. Last time out he sizzled early before scoring a top 29.90 victory and in the process he held off the strong Cash In Looper. Tonight there is very little speed drawn underneath so he should be able to cross early and if he finds the bunny he should be able to hold on. Spring Tyson was a smart 30.03 winner here two runs back and she shouldn’t be too far away again, I dont think she can reel in Gun Mcbain but if she holds him out then she will take a power of beating. Woodside Jagger is well placed in the pink and he should get a nice cart across from Gun Mcbain in the early stages, he struggles to win these days but he is rarely far away.

Very tough race to finish but with the wide running Red Can drawn in box three, I think the inside two can hold the key to the race. I expect Park Glory to lead for a long way but Alex Tyson should get a nice sit on him early and he is the stronger of the two in the run home. With Costa Kahn likely to be well fancied you might be able to snag $5 about Alex Tyson.

Park Glory continues to improve and if Alex Tyson finds bother I would expect him to steal the cash. Master Bekim was far from disgraced when placed here last time and he will be much better for the run as it was his first try over 515m.

Good Call Paul is a class act and he will likely start a short priced favourite, however I dont think he is suited tonight and he could be a massive take on.

Georgina has been a little disappointing of late but she looks well placed in the pink draw and if she can step away cleanly she should be able to burn them off as they head into the first bend.

Elusive Desire could also be a bit of value in this event, he is much better than his recent form suggests and if you go back through his form he did score a sizzling 24.14 Lismore win, if he is given some room to muster speed in the early stages he can play a major role.

Good Call Paul has the class edge and he shouldn’t be too far away, the concern with him is that he can be slow to begin and he is likely to get crowded soon after box rise.

Titan Ash must be respected, she has the speed to lead and she has won here on three separate occasions.

Minnesota Nice is an exciting prospect and she has scored two brilliant sub 30 second wins here of late. She is suited by the wide draw and in one of her wins she recorded a blistering 5.52 to the first marker, if she turns in a similar effort tonight she should get the cash.

Messidonna Cloud showed great mid race speed in his 30.20 win here and with a clear run I think he will be able to go much faster, with slow beginners drawn on either side he should be afforded all the breaks as they head into the first bend.

Hopes Magic flew early but fell in a hole late here last time out and I think she will be much better for the run, I dont think she can win but she is a must for the exotics.

Short Cake Cloud has won four on end and she looks poised to win again, she is blessed with solid early speed and that should allow her to settle in a prominent position early and during the middle stages is where she will do her best work. With the speed in boxes six and seven, she should get a perfect cart into the first bend.

Pacific Harbour is a serious talent and if he is given room in the first 50m he will take a power of beating, however I can’t give him a strong push because I’m concerned about the speed which is drawn in boxes six and seven.

Banc De Kahn is an explosive short course sprinter and she is making her 520m debut, I’m expecting her to lead for a long way but she will be battling up the home straight, its best to probably just include her in your exotic bets.

Jayden Lass is another who has the speed to lead and she could run a cheeky race at nice odds.

Whata Nice Size continues to improve and impress and with a clean getaway tonight he should continue on his winning way. Two starts back he set the track alight with a brilliant 29.89 win here and on that occasion he made the talented Hazy Jane look pretty average.

Marlisa has a good record here and she is blessed with good early speed. There is a bit of speed in three and four but if she can sit just behind them she should be pretty strong in the run home and I would expect her to make an impact.

Don’t Go Quietly is the run on type in the event, he finally returned to the winners list with a strong 30.47 win here last time and if the leaders happen to bunch up he will be there to swoop over the top in the run home.

Dutch Stryker is an exciting talent and he should be ready to fire first up from a spell. Prior to having a rest had had won three of eight here and his latest victory was in a brilliant 29.81. He normally shows smart early speed and when he finds the bunny early in his races he is very hard to run down. There isn’t much speed in this race so he should get every chance to lead.

Hard Luck is likely to bomb the start but he will make a strong move mid race and he is racing in good style at present, he will need some luck but if he gets it he will definitely make an impact.

Mr. Brand could be the value in the race, he will be steaming home at the end and he has turned in some monster performances over this journey in recent weeks.

Princess Canute must also be respected, she is blessed with high speed and she caught the eye when winning here two runs back in 30.10.

Good race set to do battle and I think the speedy Cardwell can get the job done. In recent weeks she has scored some scorching wins here over the 395m trip and prior to that she did win at Ipswich over the 520m trip, so she will have no trouble covering the distance. I’m expecting her to lead easily and at around the $4 quote I think that is great value.

Dark Spur flew around here recently in 29.88 and a similar effort will see him figure prominently again, he isn’t going to get a cheap lead tonight so at the short odds I think he is a bit of a risk.

Stella Nights has scored two sub 30 wins here in recent weeks and she is well placed in a wide draw, if she pings the lids she will be a serious player.

Chances must also be given to Raging Thunder and Buenos Cloud, both are showing a lot of potential.

Open race and I think we can find some value with the speed Miner’s Moss. His recent form isn’t great but he has had five weeks off and he tends to go very well when fresh. He is blessed with explosive early speed and with a good getaway he should either match motors with or burn off Dream River as they head into the first bend.

Dream River is ultra consistent and he broke through for a well deserved win here on Monday in 30.01, he is likely to turn in a similar effort tonight so he should figure in the money somewhere.

Melody Serenade has her box and she could be worth an each way ticket, she can be hit or miss early but she did post her 30 flat PB here from this draw.

Renatus is going well but he is going to be under the odds, this is a big rise in class for him tonight.

Tough race but I think the consistent Cyndie’s Special can get the job done, she normally begins well and if she can settle in the top three early, she might be too strong for them. Two starts back she finished too strongly to score in 30.25 and with a clear run she is capable of going much faster than that.

You Can Talk is a lid pinger and she should set a cracking pace, her last 40m can be a worry but if she zips away off the back straight she might have enough in the tank.

Fusaichi Kahn has a great record here and he returned to form with a strong 30.02 win here, he should sit just behind You Can Talk early and a top three finish looks on the cards.

This is a really good race and there are a number of chances, Hougenie looks perfectly placed in the pink draw and if she begins well she should have the speed to cross and lead. She has won five of 15 over this journey and her best racing has been from wide draws.

Mister To Us is the interesting runner in the race, he has been powering to the line in his most recent 520m racing and he gives every indication that he will continue to improve over longer journeys. He is going to settle well back again tonight but I would expect him to make a move much earlier in the race than normal.

Golfing Amy flies over this track and trip and she was desperately unlucky here last week, if she can settle in the top two early she should be there at the business end.

Flick Pass could be the value, from the red he has the speed to hold them out and he has proven in the past that he can run time on the lure.

Grim Creeper had been struggling for a while but his effort last time out at Ipswich suggests that he is almost back to his best and therefore he is a major player in this event. Being a wide runner, he should be suited to the pink draw and he finds himself in a race with a number of chasers who struggle to run the trip, if he can avoid early bother he should take a power of beating.

Spanish Queen looks the likely leader and she should give a great sight, her last 30m isn’t strong but if she breaks them up off the back straight she may just steal the prize.

Big Dac is never far away in this company and he must be included in your exotic bets, whilst I’m All Stripes has been placed in three of his past four starts and he is due for a change of luck.

Cadillac Style is a member of a strong kennel and he caught the eye when winning here last week in 30.10. On that occasion he missed the kick but he mustered speed at a great rate and he assumed control mid race, if he can step cleanly tonight he should be able to lead early and I would expect him to go a lot faster on the clock.

Broadway Miss was airborne early in her sizzling 29.55 heat win and if she turns in a similar effort tonight she will figure prominently again. There isn’t a lot of speed drawn on either side so if she steps on terms she should get plenty of room to drive through and put herself in a commanding position.

Ringer was far from disgraced in his debut placing here and he is a member of a promising litter. He was very well supported on debut so I’m guessing he has a fair amount of talent and he should be able to improve on his debut run.

Gaucho rounds out the chances, he looks well placed in the pink draw and he hit the line in an impressive manner when scoring here last week in 29.88. He copped a knock soon after box rise so I would expect him to maybe go a little quicker on the clock tonight if he is given a clear run.

Hashtag Selfie is racing in consistent fashion and he has been placed in five of six runs here with two of those efforts being victories. Last time out she pinged the lids and went past the first marker in a zippy 5.05, with slow beginners drawn on either side she should be able to assume control soon after the start and it’s hard to see her getting reeled in when going sub 29.50 on the bunny.

Axis Bale is much better than his recent form reads and he should get a nice cart across as they head into the first turn, he is lacking a little confidence at present but he has won here previously in a blistering 29.31.

Jayney Bale has the class edge and she will be steaming home at the end, she does rely heavily on luck in her races but if she can find the rail without too much bother she should be able to make an impact.

Dyna Tony could be the value in the event, he isn’t overly strong but he does possess smart early speed and he could run a cheeky race at nice odds.

Sisco Rage is racing in career best form at present and he appears drawn to get the cash. Last time out he sizzled early before scoring at The Meadows in 34.39 and if he can show similar speed tonight he should be running time over this shorter trip. He has been placed in five of eight over this journey and most of those efforts have been in much stronger company.

Summer Wages is another who is racing well and he was far from disgraced when placed at Warragul last time. He tends to save his best for this track, so if he can getaway well he should be able to drive to the early lead and he should give Sisco Rage something to catch.

Bayman Bale has the good draw and if he can settle in the top three early he should run a big race, he can be hard to follow at times but he is capable of running time when he lands on the bunny.

Xtreme Gretel is a former American chaser and she should be ready to fire after two runs from a spell, she is a member of an in form kennel and she must be respected at odds.

Full On Bling is a super fast talent and he scored a devastating 33.92 win here last Sunday. Last week he had the advantage of the red but he is blessed with good track sense and he should be able to overcome a couple of difficulties early in the race. With a heap of speed drawn in six he should get a nice cart across in the early stages and if he settles in the first three I can’t see them holding him out.

Diva’s Shadow is a reliable beginner and she should lead them up for a long way. She made her debut over this journey last start and she got a little tired up the home straight but she should be able to derive a lot of benefit from that run.

My Jack Rabbit has been racing in strong company recently and he looks well placed in the pink, if he can settle in the top two early he should be able to make a big impact. He has won two of five here and he does hold an impressive 34.24 PB.

My Name’s Jessie rounds out the chances, she finally returned to the winners list last time but with the rise in class tonight I think place claims look best.

8FLAME BALE (NSW)[5]52276NBTA Dailly (Anakie)

Frank Furter is flying at present and his effort to score at Sale last time in a blistering 24.79 was super impressive. He is normally a very reliable beginner and he has proven in his career to date that he is capable of reeling off very quick sectionals when he lands on the bunny. He has a bit of speed drawn underneath him but as long as he doesn’t crash to the fence too early he should be able to burn Dark Jameson off.

Eyeful Of Bling is blessed with amazing talent but he can be a little unreliable at times, like Frank Furter, he was a sizzling Sale winner last time out in 24.72 and a similar performance tonight would see him prove hard to beat. He can bomb the start at times but if he gets away tonight he should play a major role.

Hello Good Bye is a former star chaser and he is still going ok, he should be able to follow Frank Furter across early and if he can settle in the first half he should figure prominently.

Zipping Ryan is the up and comer in the event, he set the track alight at Bendigo three starts back when winning in 23.60 and if he pings away he could cause a minor upset.

7BAD BOY SNIPER (NSW)[5]21115FSHJ Magri (Austral)
8RUFFONIC (NSW)[5]23345NBTJ Cottrell (Pearcedale)

Good race and I think the improving Crackerjack Max can return to the winners list. In December he posted three brilliant wins on the trot and on each occasion he showed a good turn of foot soon after box rise and he assumed command not long after the start. Last time out he was no match for super star chaser Dyna Villa and he really should appreciate the drop in class tonight.

Bad Boy Sniper is a gun NSW speedster and he recently trialled at The Meadows in a sizzling 29.83, he is better suited to a rails draw but if he can get away cleanly he should be able to follow Crackerjack Max across into the first bend.

High Class is aiming for a hat trick of wins and her last start victory here was in a super 29.47, she is a better chaser when on the bunny and her 5.21 first section last time is a bit of a concern. I dont think she can win tonight but she must be included in your exotics.

Ruffonic is the interesting runner, he has an enormous amount of ability but he can be very unreliable, he has his draw tonight and if he puts it altogether he will run a big race at odds.

Weblec Rose was desperately unlucky in the Laurels final last time out and she will be looking to make amends. Prior to that she did post a slick 29.39 win here and on that occasion she made the classy Lamia Bale look like a grade 5 chaser. If she can repeat her scintillating 4.93 to the first marker she should be able to lead again and it’s hard to see them getting near her.

Lektra Hawk could be the value in the race, I’m a big fan of his and if he can step a little better tonight he will run a big race at odds. He has won here previously in 29.50 and he will be powering to the line.

Ima Fairytale is racing in great form and she caught the eye in her slick 34.35 Meadows win last time out, she can be hit or miss early but if she can settle in the first half of the field she will be there at the end.

Rumbling Rick is a class act when on song and he returned to form two runs back when scoring at Ballarat in 25.23, he will need to lead to win but he can show great early speed when given room in the first 50m.

10CREATIVE KARISMA [4]Res.5363729.34(3)K Podmore (Wagga Wagga)

Very open race but I think the old timer Buckle Up Mason can get the job done. Two starts back he showed a return to form when he matched motors with Musquin Bale for most of the trip here and if he can step cleanly he should sit outside of Dyna Nico for most of the trip and I would expect him to prove too strong in the run home.

Walt Bale is going to be a gun stayer in the future and although he lacks experience I think he can make an impact in this event, he is likely to settle back in the field but he has great track sense and he will be steaming home at the end.

Dyna Nihilist was a little disappointing last time but when he is switched on he is an absolute beast. If he can avoid bother in the first 50m he should make a strong move mid race and he will give them a fright as they turn for home.

Maximum Lil is the only other chance, she is hit or miss early but when she pings she is capable of running ridiculous times.

Star Recall is absolutely airborne at present and from the red it’s hard to see her being headed in this event. She should be able to pounce on the early lead and she will be reeling off blistering sectionals on the bunny. Last time out she captured the Sale Cup final and at the short odds I think its best just to anchor her up front in your exotic bets.

Quasi Bale stepped up in distance last time and he looked ultra impressive in his 34.39 Meadows win, I think Star Recall will have too much early burn for him but he should sit a couple of lengths behind her and he won’t be too far away at the end.

Come On Fantasy continues to excel over this distance range and she should run a cheeky race again, with the empty draw on her outside she should get a clear run and there shouldn’t be too many excuses.

One Dee is a lid pinger and she led for a long way when placed here last time behind the in form Spring Leaf. She isn’t overly strong but I’m expecting her to find the bunny in the early stages again and if they shuffle up behind her she may just steal the prize.

Clash Of Kings is a class act and if he gets a few breaks in the early stages he will take a power of beating. He is better suited to a rails draw but if given room to muster speed he should be outside One Dee at the first turn and he should put her to the sword as they head for the back straight. He really does have panels on this lot but I’m a bit concerned about the box draw.

Earl Bale is showing some promise and he appears to be getting stronger with every run, he doesn’t have much speed drawn around him so with a clean getaway he should get every chance to settle in the top two or three early.

Dyna Geldof rounds out the chances, he doesn’t win often these days but he has the good draw and he is never far away in this company.

Caustic Bale is the real deal and with a clear run it will be interesting to see what time he can put on the board. Tonight he has the luxury of slow beginners being drawn on either side, so if he can step on terms he should be allowed to show his devastating turn of foot and I would expect him to burn them off as they head through the bend.

Blue Giant has a big engine but I would prefer him from a wider draw, four starts back he was placed in the Ballarat Cup final and he followed that effort up with a top placing behind Keybow at The Meadows in sizzling time. If he can get some room to move through the first bend he should make a big impact.

Dyna Zod has the speed to lead and he could give a great sight, I dont think he can hold on but he must be included in your exotic bets.

Hailstorm Billy is another for the exotics, he has a top record here and this race is a little easier in overall depth to what he has been facing in recent times.

Spring Leaf is currently flying and with a good getaway tonight she should be able to make every post a winner. Three starts back she reeled off impressive sectionals when winning here in 29.37 and a repeat of that effort would see her win with ease tonight.

Usain I’m Nutty is probably going to be a nice stayer in the future and at present he showing plenty over the shorter journey’s. Two starts back he really caught the eye when placed behind Dyna Villa at The Meadows and on that occasion his personal time was sub 30 seconds.

Mepunga Moss is hit or miss early but she loves racing here and when she pings she is capable of running some serious time. She is lacking confidence at present but if she finds the bunny early she might just keep going.

Dyna Chaser rounds out the chances, he is never far away in this company and he only needs a few breaks in the early stages.

Let It Develop is armed with smart early speed and he should prove hard to reel in if he can reproduce his sizzling 25.52 winning effort from Goulbourn two runs back. On that occasion he assumed control soon after the start and he never looked in doubt and he beat a pretty handy lineup. With the early speed in boxes four and five, if he can step away cleanly he should get a nice cart into the race and he should get all the breaks.

Uno Suzie led for a long way at Wentworth Park last time and if she can ping the lids again she should give a great sight, her last 50m isn’t great but if they shuffle up behind her she may just steal the prize.

Yale is another zippy beginner and he should match motors with the five and six for most of the journey, he has scored two strong Goulbourn wins of late over 457m and if he holds them out he should give a bold sight.

Two starts back he showed a tremendous turn of foot when posting a slick 22.67 victory here and with the wide running Bardo Holyfield on his outside he should get every chance to show a similar turn of speed tonight.

Hardaway Drifter can be a little hard to follow but when given room to muster he is capable of running slick sectionals. He has been sparingly raced of late but after two runs from a short spell he should be ready to fire.

Scrub Lands is well drawn out wide and he has been placed in three of four here, if he can settle in the top three early he should be there at the end.

Ennis Bale had been out of form for a while but last week he showed signs of his best when placed here over 400m. He was a tad slow to begin but he worked his way through the field nicely and was beaten by three lengths behind exciting speedster Bralyn Stalker. With the empty box on his outside, he should get a fairly clear passage as they head into the first bend and I think he can salute at nice odds.

Voight is the clear and obvious danger, he powered home last start to score at Geelong in 25.92 and if he can avoid early bother he should be able to figure prominently. He has won two of three here and the wide draw should suit him.

Bomber Attack has the speed to lead and he should give a bold suit, he has been run down at his past two but if they shuffle up behind him tonight he may be able to steal the prize.

Tekki China has been racing in consistent fashion of late and he is getting close to another win. Last time out he was placed in very quick time here and if he can repeat the dose he will take a power of beating. He has a slow beginner drawn directly underneath so if he can step on terms he should be able to drive through and assume control mid race.

Take Them On could be the value in the event, I dont think he can win but he is almost a lock to run a place. He has been placed in three of four over this journey and he loves to scout wide in his races, he will get back early but he should be steaming home at the end.

Black Odin has the good draw and he should run an improved race, he has a good record here and he has the speed to hold them out.

Vee For Vegas must be included in your exotic bets, she drops in class and she will be hitting the line solidly.

Long Gully Magic is surrounded by slow beginners and he has scored some powerful wins of late. If he can step fairly cleanly he should be able to drive through and lead and if he finds the bunny early he should take a power of beating. His Pb of 30.43 is just fair but I think with a clear passage he can get down to the 30.10 mark.

Keller Bale is back in form and he will be steaming home at the end, he will need some luck from box six but if he gets it he will prove hard to hold out.

Spring Pearl can be very hit or miss early but she did look impressive when scoring here in 30.03 two runs back, if she repeats that effort she will be right in the mix.

Here Comes Henry rounds out the chances, he is never far away over this trip and he is drawn to settle in a prominent position.

Gun Mcbain is armed with blistering early speed and he appears to be getting stronger with every run, three starts back he posted a sizzling 22.22 win here over 388m and last week he was far from disgraced when placed in good company. He should be able to burn to the early lead and he will give a great sight.

Cash In Looper is a star talent but I would prefer him from a wide draw, if he avoids bother in the early stages he should be right in the mix.

Cool Duke is better than his form reads and he can run home into a place, he has a slow beginner drawn on his outside so he should get all the breaks early.

Witch Bale recorded her smart 29.98 PB here from this draw and if she gets a clear passage early she should be able to make an impact.

Dyna Norfolk has come up with the good draw and with a clean getaway he should be able to punch through and lead all the way. He is normally a reliable beginner and back in November he scored a handy 29.78 win here and he then followed that effort up with two strong Meadows placings. There is very little pace drawn directly on his outside so he should get all the breaks in the early stages.

Baron Bling is drawn to get a nice sit behind him and he should fill the quinella spot, two starts back he overcame a slow start to score here in 29.93, with a clear run he is capable of going much quicker.

Jubilea Bale has the class edge but I dont like her from the wide draw, if she crosses she is a major player but I think she will be posted wide for most of the journey.

Galahad cold be the value, he is never far away over this journey and he should be suited by the class drop.

Droopy’s Bentley is the real deal and he looked super impressive when scoring at Shepparton recently in 25.13, there isn’t much speed on his outside so he should get more than enough room to muster speed and if he enters the turn in front he will be running some serious time.

Smoken Jimmy has a heap of talent but he doesn’t always show it, back in October he set the track alight at Wentworth Park when winning in 29.62, if he could repeat that performance he would take a power of beating.

Udon Bale must be respected, he scored back to back impressive Meadows wins in November and he just needs an ounce of luck early to feature.

Stylish Baroque must be included in your exotics, she has a good draw and she has the speed to lead. If she holds them out early she should be able to hold on for some minor money.

Open race to kick off the night but I think the speedy Magic Dream can get the job done at nice odds. Last time out he led for most of the trip and it took the classy Cawbourne Whip an eternity to reel him in. If he can ping and lead tonight he should give a great sight again and he should have enough in the tank to hold on.

I’m Pedro was a bit unlucky here last week and he appears to be getting back to his best, from the pink draw he should get a clear passage as they head into the first turn and if he can settle in the top three he should be there at the end.

Fantastic Sid is likely to start a short priced favourite and he should make an impact, he will need to step cleanly to have any chance though, because there is a heap of speed in this event and he can’t afford to make too many mistakes.

Watto Lotto is the run on type in the event and it may be worth anchoring him for third and fourth in your exotic bets, he will get too far back to win but he always runs on and he should pick off a few stragglers in the home straight.

Spacecraft is the real deal and if he can step cleanly he should take a power of beating. Four starts back he turned in a very strong performance when placed here and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. He possesses ridiculous speed once he hits the ground and if he is given room I can see him leading them easily.

Martin Clegg has been racing in consistent and impressive fashion and his effort when placed here two runs back was eye catching. He is better suited to a rails draw but he musters speed quickly and with a good getaway he should be able to work his way across into a prominent position.

Supersonic Kaos is showing plenty of promise and he hit the line strongly when placed here last time out, he is going to settle back in the field again but he should be able to run home into a place.

Black Lagoon has the good draw and he too was smartly placed here last time, he is blessed with good early speed and from the red draw he should be able to hold a prominent position as they head into the first bend.

Mullaway is a star stayer in the making and should be suited by the small field. From the pink draw he should be able to carve across to the early lead and I dont think he will have too much trouble covering the journey. He has scored some scintillating wins at Albion Park in his brief career and he really does look suited in this event.

Eleazar has a good record here and she should have derived a lot of benefit from her two 520m runs here, from the red she should be able to drive through and settle just behind Mullaway in the early stages. I’m expecting Mullaway to get away from her mid race but if he happens to get a stitch late in the race, she should be there to pounce at the end.

Raramuri is a consistent type and she was far from disgraced when placed here last time out, she will be suited by the small field and she might be worth an each way ticket if she goes around at silly odds.

Stunning Ashberg is the only other place prospect, she was placed in her only try over this journey and she has been racing well here over the 520m journey of late.

Very tough race but I think the speedy Let It Develop should be able to find the early lead and he will prove too zippy for his rivals. In November he turned in some handy efforts when placed here and after three weeks off he went to Goulbourn and set the track alight with a 25.52 victory. If he happens to find the bunny early tonight I dont think they will be able to reel him in.

Kasinda should follow him across in the early stages and she has been placed in five of nine tries here, I dont think she can pick him up but she should have enough in the tank to hold on for the quinella spot.

Funny Bone has the good draw and she was a strong 30.29 winner here four runs back, she is a bit one paced but she should be in the mix for most of the journey.

Just Run It looks well placed in the pink draw and he has been racing in good form, he musters speed quickly in his races and if he can settle in the top three he should be there at the end.

Pierro Kade isn’t known for his strength and he is better suited to a shorter trip but the last time he exited this draw he turned in a great performance when placed behind the classy Zipping Oscar. If he can get away with them on terms he should have the speed to cross and I would expect him to break up the field mid race, the last 50m is always a concern but I think he should have enough in the tank to hold on.

Le Sirenuse is a classy Queenslander and she is drawn to be in the finish, she recently made the Brisbane Cup final and this is probably the weakest event she has contested for a while, if she can handle the first turn she should make a big impact.

Classy Sahara is a speedy customer and she has a great record here, I’m a little concerned about the box draw but if she is given room to muster she is not without a chance.

Von Ryan rounds out the chances, he is aiming for a hat trick of wins and he has the speed to hold them out early, this is obviously a rise in class for him but he continues to get better with every start.

Frattini returned to the winners list with a brilliant 29.91 heat win and she should be able to go back to back. She got knocked over soon after box rise last week so with some luck in the first 50m she should make light work of this lineup. She is capable of probably getting down to the 29.70 mark and none of her opponents could get within six lengths of that type of run.

She’s Andy is showing promise and she was far from disgraced when placed in her heat last week, she should get a nice cart across from Rubelly Magic in the run to the first turn and with a clear run she should settle in a prominent position, she is getting stronger with every run and she could be the value in this event.

Francine has the good draw and she has been racing in consistent fashion, she should get a nice sit behind Frattini for most of the journey and she should be able to hold on for some minor money.

Rubelly Magic rounds out the chances, she has electrifying early speed and if she crosses early she will prove very hard to reel in.

Another open race and I think the in form Fort Allen can lead from go to whoa, two starts back he won here in 29.97 and he followed that effort up with a placing in slick time. There isn’t a lot of speed drawn on his outside so if he can step on terms he should be able to drive through and assume control as they head into the first turn, he is getting stronger so if he finds the bunny he should be able to hold on.

Cawbourne Whip showed a return to form with a strong 30.08 win here last week and she should make an impact again tonight, she has a fantastic record here and if she gets anywhere near her breathtaking 29.38 PB she will destroy this lineup.

Varcoe is well placed in the pink draw and he hit the line strongly in his top 29.90 win here last week, I’m a little concerned that he might get posted wide early but he does possess a good turn of foot so he might be able to avoid that.

Tee Brady rounds out the chances, he can be hard to follow at times but he has the good draw and when he sights the bunny he tends to grow a leg, if he goes around at a silly price he may be worth a saver bet.

Winsome Jacko is an absolute beast and with some luck in the first 50m he should take a power of beating. Two starts back he showed a tremendous turn of foot soon after box rise and he posted a blistering 29.61 victory here, with a speedy beginner drawn underneath tonight he should get a nice run into the first turn and if he can settle in the top three he will take a power of beating.

Zipping Oscar continues to improve and his two recent wins here have been ultra impressive, in both efforts he has overcome early difficulties and then powered to the line, if he doesn’t get posted too wide early he should be able to make a big impact.

Fire Elusive should lead them for a long way and he has won here previously in slick time, I dont think he can hold out some of the stronger types but he should be able to hang on for a place.

Addison Road is back to her brilliant best and if she can cross from the wide draw she is a major player, I’m not convinced she has the speed to cross so place claims look best for her.

This is probably the race of the night for me with the three star chasers set to do battle. Winsome Prince tasted defeat for the first time last start and he will be desperate to get back into the winners list. He has won his only try here and on that occasion he posted a solid 30.01, the track was off that night so if he can find the early lead tonight I’m expecting him to go sub 29.60.

Ella Has Class has the coveted red draw and she looked good in her explosive 29.68 win here three runs back, if she can turn in a similar effort tonight she give Winsome Prince something to think about.

Rivergum Drive is a serious star in the making and he blew away a handy lineup here last week in 29.72, I’m a little concerned about the draw tonight but if he gets away cleanly it should be a great battle between these three chasers.

Encosta Deplente and Dragon Emgrand have a bit of nuisance value about them, both have great early speed and both have turned in some solid performances in recent weeks.

Sir Redmond has returned to racing in fine style and with a clean getaway he should be able to burn across and lead throughout. Last time out he flew to the first marker before scoring at The Gardens in a slick 29.83, that was only his third run from a long spell so I would expect him to hit the line even better tonight.

Sweet Daddy Dee is armed with smart early speed and he can run time when he lands on the bunny, he has gone very quick here to the first marker in the past and if he holds them out he should give a bold sight.

Iona Champion is a smart short course speedster and she should be able to handle the rise in distance, she is having her first look here but if she handles the first turn she should give a great sight.

Bent Ability rounds out the chances, he is one of the stronger types in the event and if he happens to settle in the first half he should be there at the end.

Quasi Bale is a gun chaser and he has been crying out for this distance range, two starts back he trounced a handy lineup when scoring at Horsham in a slick 32.79. On that occasion he hit the line very well and if you can run a strong 570m at Horsham, you should have no trouble running out the 600m here. He should be able to settle in the top two or three early and I would expect him to go into overdrive mid race.

Tekki Minx has been racing in consistent form of late and she should lead them a merry dance, last time out Echelonic Action got to her pretty early in the race but she was still able to kick on and she went down by only four lengths, if she can turn in a similar effort tonight she should prove very hard to reel in again.

Volksjager Blue turned in a monster effort in a heat of the Sale Cup last time and he looks well placed in the red, I’m not convinced that he is suited to the track but from the red he must be given a chance.

Classy Boy rounds out the chances, he will settle back early but he does hit the line hard and he only needs a bit of luck mid race to feature.

Extremely open race and I think we can find some value out wide, Chrichton Bale is an exciting prospect and he was desperately unlucky in his heat, tonight he exits a favourable wide draw and if he can avoid bother in the first 50m he should be able to put himself into a winning position. He is yet to win in town but he has scored some slick provincial wins to date and with a clear run I reckon he will be running some time tonight.

Waymore Blues should also be a bit of value, he scored a strong 30.29 win here last week and he has the ability to lead or come from off the speed in his races, with the wide running Chrichton Bale drawn on his outside, he should get a fairly clear passage into the first bend and he should then be able to make an impact.

Cheap Currency has the good draw and he was the fastest heat winner in 30.13, if he manages to settle in the top three early he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Nail Clipper is a beast and he is capable of just about anything, the concern with him is that he can make mistakes in his races and he may get shuffled back early.

Mepunga Hayley is a bit of a money muncher but last time out at Sale she showed that she shouldn’t have too much trouble handling the extra journey and from the pink tonight she should be able to jump and run. She has scored some ridiculously fast wins here over the 525m journey and with a clean getaway tonight she should be able to set up a mammoth lead mid race, she will get a little tired in the run home but she should have enough in the tank.

Allen Gundam has been looking for this journey and he should be steaming home at the end, last time out he finished on well when placed behind the talented High Class over 600m and outside of the pink this isn’t a very strong race.

Roethlisberger turned in a strong performance when placed here two runs back and he should be in the mix again, he can bomb the start at times but from the red he should be able to push through into a prominent position in the early stages.

Lites And Sirens must be included in your exotics, she turned in a big performance to score at Cranbourne last time out.

Tureaud was absolutely stunning in his 29.72 heat win last week and I’m tipping him to go on and win the series. He made his debut here last week and he looked quite lost as they went through the first bend so with a good getaway again tonight I’m expecting him to maybe find another length or so. There is a bit of speed drawn on his outside but if he gets away with them on terms he should have enough natural speed to hold them out.

Axis Bale looks well placed in the red draw and he has proven that he can run time when he lands on the bunny. With a wide runner drawn on his outside, he should get a fairly clear passage as they head into the first bend and that should allow him to settle in the top three as they head to the back straight.

Duomo Bale is another exciting prospect and he looked super impressive when scoring at Geelong in 25.71 two runs back, he is going to need luck from the wide draw but if he gets it he should be a major player.

Prescribe is a gun Tassie chaser and he has the speed to make an impact, he trialled in good fashion here before the start of the series and he must be respected at nice odds here.

Dyna Villa is the reigning Melbourne Cup champion and he should make light work of this lineup. After a disappointing placing in the Hobart Thousand Final, he returned to form with a dazzling 29.67 heat win. He is probably better suited to a wider draw but there isn’t a lot of speed drawn around him so with a good getaway he should have the speed to drive through and lead and if he finds the bunny I can’t see anything reeling him in.

Ikaku Bale was far from disgraced when placed behind Tureaud last week and he will continue to improve with more racing, his box manners have been good in his past two starts and if he can show similar early speed tonight he should put himself into contention as they negotiate the first turn.

Charleston is an improving type and after two looks at the track he should be ready to put it altogether, he can miss at times but there is no speed around him so he should get plenty of room to muster speed.

Dyna Vikkers is the only other chance, he is another who continues to get better with racing and if the favourite happens to make some mistakes he could be there to capitalise at nice odds.

Dyna Kayla is a star talent and she showed at Sale that she is back to her brilliant best when posting a sizzling 37.11 win two runs back. She does her best racing when she can dictate the terms out in front and with average beginners drawn underneath her she should get every chance to drive through and assume control. She has a slick 42.63 PB here so if she does find the bunny early she will take a power of beating.

Julie Bale is the interesting runner, she has been freshened up with a couple of sprint races and then last time out she contested a heat of the Sale Cup. Tonight I’m expecting her to settle in the top two early and although she is probably a run short she should still be able to battle on and make an impact.

Starc has the good draw and he has raced well here in the past, two starts back he was far from disgraced when placed behind Dyna Kayla at Sale over the 650m journey.

Shall She Rock rounds out the winning prospects, she has won three of eight here and she is blessed with terrific track sense and she can work her way through a field.

Sisco Rage is racing in dazzling form at present and he should prove very hard to hold out tonight. Two starts back he beat the classy Allen Deed at Sale in 37.38 and in recent months he has shown that he has improved his box manners. If he can step cleanly tonight he should be able to drive through to the early lead and he should prove too good for this lineup.

Echelonic Action is airborne again and with some luck in the first 50m he should be in the finish again. He has won two of his past three starts and both of those wins were at Sandown in a sizzling 34.25, he is likely to settle mid pack tonight but if the gaps open at the right time he will take some holding out.

Rumero Reason is drawn poorly out wide but he has turned in some super efforts of late, if he can find the rail without too much trouble he can run a nice race at good odds.

Smart Maxwell is a front runner and he should be vying for the lead for most of the race, he isn’t overly strong so he is likely to get picked off late in the race but he should be good enough to hold on for a place.

Kerrigan Bale can be a little hard to follow at times but she loves racing here and she can run time when given a clear run. In November she happened to find the bunny early and she posted a blistering 29.88 win here, tonight she has a few slow beginners drawn on her outside so she should get every chance to repeat that effort.

Maximum Lil is flying of late and she was an explosive 29.86 winner here earlier this month. If she can ping the lids and find the bunny early she will prove hard to run down, it will be interesting to see who leads out of the two and three, I think who holds the lead will get the cash.

Hawk Alone is better than his form reads and with the speed drawn underneath him he should be able to get a nice sit behind the early leaders, he isn’t at peak form right now but he should be able to run home into a place.

Musquin Bale keeps on firing and he is aiming for a hat trick of wins, I dont think he has the speed to cross but he is strong and he can take home some of the minor money.

Dyna Double One is the real deal and he appears to have everything you want in a chaser, he has explosive speed once he hits the ground, his mid race speed is phenomenal and he possesses great strength. Last week he had everyone talking when he posted a blinding 29.55 heat win and if he turns in a performance like that again its hard to see him being beaten. There is a bit of concern with the speed drawn on his outside but he is just too good to tip against.

Vapour Lee has the good draw and he might be able to punch through and lead at the first bend, he has proven in his brief career that when he sights the bunny early he is capable of running some very impressive sectionals.

Walt Bale will continue to improve and he is probably a great stayer in the making. With the red expected to lead he should be able to drive through into a prominent position and then make a big impact.

Dyna Alchemist rounds out the genuine winning hopes, he is better suited to a rails draw but he is racing with confidence and he does have the speed to cross in the early stages.

Astronomize has only had four race starts but he has scored two brilliant Cannington wins and he should have derived a lot of benefit from the look at the track here last week. He is blessed with brilliant early speed and he is getting stronger with every run, if he can burn them off at the first bend he may just steal the prize at big odds.

Ultima Bale is a speed demon and he should get a clear passage as they head into the first bend, two starts back he set the track alight at Warragul with a blistering 25.67 win and if he can bring that type of form to town he will be able to post some ridiculous sectionals.

Above All is a superstar and he is obviously a major contender. Two starts back he captured the Hobart Thousand final in track record time and he made a gun lineup look like a bunch of fifth graders, I’m a little concerned about the draw tonight but if he gets a few breaks early he should be right in the finish.

Polly Bale has always shown great talent and she turned in a great performance to score at Sandown in a slick 29.54. She looks suited by the rails draw and I can see her landing on the bunny and building up a nice lead mid race. She has had one try over this journey and she got a little tired in the run home but I think she will be much better for that run and she should be able finish off a lot better tonight.

Ima Fairytale has won two of four here and she is capable of reeling off impressive sectionals, she was a little disappointing at Sale last time but that was her first look at the track so I’m willing to forgive that run.

Come On Fantasy scored a commanding 34.28 Sandown win last time out and she should prove hard to hold out again, she is getter better with every start and she really hit the line strongly last time out.

Lillycette is a classy Tasmanian chaser and she has won five in a row with one of those efforts being in track record time. If she happens to ping and lead she should give a great sight.

Tough race to finish off the night but I think the speedy Dyna Nico might find the early lead and she may just pinch the race. In recent weeks she has been getting very tired in her races but she has been receiving a fair bit of pressure mid race, tonight I think she can carve them up early and that might allow her to establish a massive lead mid race and that should allow her to hold on in the straight.

Blue Giant is a fierce chaser and with a clear run he will take a power of beating, he is better suited to the provincial tracks but he is blessed with high speed and if the gaps open at the right time he will take a power of beating.

Spring Leaf is flying and she is aiming for a hat trick of wins, if she can hold out Dyna Nico she becomes a genuine winning prospect.

Where’s The Surf has a good record here and he should appreciate the drop in class, he will get a nice cart across from Dyna Nico and a return to the winners list will not surprise me.

Miss Party Girl has been doing most of her recent racing here over the 731m journey and today she drops back to the 515m trip and I believe she is suited. She likes to scout wide in her races so from the seven box she should get a clear run early and I would expect her to sit just behind Jetta Kahn for most of the trip and she should then prove too strong in the run home.

Jetta Kahn has been racing in great form and she should set a cracking pace, she was a bit disappointing last time but I’m expecting an improved effort today.

Springvale Cosmo is the value in the event, she is resuming from a spell and she has raced very well here in the past, if she can getaway cleanly she should put herself in the race.

10MUSIC MAN1877NBTCharles Irwin

Dashing Dee Dee returned to form with a top 30.15 win here last time and she appears well graded in this event, there is no speed drawn around her and if she can get away with them on terms she should have sufficient speed to burn them off at the first bend. She has gone 29.90 here in the past and she really does have a fair bit on these.

Montgomery Road has the good draw and he should be in a prominent position for most of the journey, he has been beginning a lot better of late and he looks a monty for the quinella spot.

Noren Bale and Gunslinger Girl appear to be the only other chances, both will hit the line strongly and they must be included in your exotic bets.

10MAX MCGUINESS [5]Res.26376NBTP Siakew (Bendigo)

Scintillating had been struggling for a little while but last time out at Ballarat he showed a return to form with a strong 23.95 win. Once again he was fair to begin but he showed great mid race pace and then hit the line well, he appears to be regaining more confidence and from the pink he should get all the breaks in the early stages.

Lektra Hawk is also well placed out wide and he hasn’t been too far away in his past two, he is likely to get a long way back early but he will be charging home at the end.

Lavender Brown should set a cracking pace and she should give a nice sight at odds, the last 50m is a worry but if they bunch up behind her she may just steal the prize. Dyna Chaser rounds out the chances, he has been placed in six of seven here and he is a class act.

Be Two Bomber is another who looks well placed in the pink draw and he should find this class to his liking. If you go back through his form he did record a top placing here behind the classy Tiggerlong Await and a similar effort tonight would see him get the cash tonight.

Filius Fitwick was placed behind the promising speedster Crackerjack Max at Geelong last time and he is drawn to make an impact again, he has also won four of 11 here.

Zulekha led for a long way here last week and she could lead them again tonight and if they happen to shuffle up behind her she may get away with the prize.

Pedro’s Twist is the only other winning hope, he has been racing in consistent style and he only needs some luck early to finish in the mix.

Long Gully Stevie hasn’t been racing with a lot of luck recently but he returns to a draw where he has begun well in the past and with a clean getaway today he should get every chance to lead throughout. Earlier in his career he posted a slick 22.39 win here and a similar effort would see him prove very hard to run down.

Emerley Avenue should get a nice sit on Long Gully Stevie early and she has been racing in consistent style of late, she can miss away at times but if the red begins she should get a fairly clear passage either way.

Reluctant King is a reliable beginner and he should be in the mix for most of the trip, he has been in the money in all four of his tries here.

Lucy Fergo has a heap of ability but I dont like her drawn out so wide, place claims look best for her.

Dr. Kiaralee has excelled since coming to SA and she appears drawn to get the cash again, two starts back she pinged the lids and scored a speedy 30.21 win here, if she can step cleanly again she should carve across early and repeat the dose.

Pawesome Gold should match motors with Dr. Kiaralee for most of the trip, she isn’t as strong though so the quinella spot looks best for her.

Midway Magic will be steaming home at the end and she might be a good type to anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Dakota Premier looks perfectly placed in the wide draw and he should be ready to fire first up from a spell. He has a slow beginner drawn underneath him so that should allow him to drive through at the first bend and I can see him settling in the top three as they head for the back straight. He has won here in a blistering 29.57 previously and he should be good value in this event.

Alderley Reform returns to SA after a successful NSW trip, he has won eight of ten here and he should be in a prominent position throughout.

Better Call Saul can be hard to follow but he is capable of reeling off impressive sectionals when he is switched on, there isn’t a lot of speed drawn underneath him so he should get a clear run early.

Zipping Snoopy made his SA debut here last week and he caught the eye with a brilliant 30 flat win. He stepped from the same draw as tonight and he showed a sizzling turn of foot early and recorded 4.41 to the first marker, if he can turn in a similar performance tonight he should put a space in them.

Hersi didn’t have much luck in the same race last week and he should show some improvement, I dont think he can beat the pink but he should be able to land the quinella spot.

Cosmic Wild has the speed to cross and he could run a cheeky race at nice odds, he was a strong 30.97 Gawler winner two runs back so he must be respected.

Angel Of Music is probably one of the most talented maiden chasers going around and today she should be able to break through, she has been placed in eight of 12 starts to date and three starts ago she led until the shadows of the post when placed at The Meadows in fast time. From the pink she should be able to carve across to the early lead and she will prove hard to reel in.

Fiorelli micha has a heap of talent but she wont go past the leader, two starts back she pulled up three times in the run and amazingly wasnt sighted by the stewards, today she should settle mid pack and once she gets up to the leaders she should idle up alongside them and fill the quinella spot.

Tigers Hero is a member of the powerful Robert Britton kennel and he is drawn to run a big race, he was solidly placed here on debut and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

The main race of the day and i think the speedy Lady Ronray can cross early and she should steal the prize. Her last 50m isnt great but she will be burning along early and im expecting them to shuffle up behind her as they head through the first bend. In her two runs here she has run similar sectionals and overall time and those numbers should be enough to get the cash.

Lamia Bale has the clear class edge and she must never be discounted, im a bit concerned about the draw tonight but she has great track sense and she can work her way through the field.

Weblec Rose continues to improve and she made Lamia Bale look like a 5th grader here last week, if she pings and runs again she should give a great sight.

Weblec Belle is going to be well fancied but i think she is a massive risk from the red, she will look to shift out at the first bend and she may take out half the field.

I’m Pedro hasn’t been racing with much luck of late and I’m expecting him to show a lot more improvement in this company. In recent weeks he has been finding bother soon after the start and therefore he has been unable to make an impact, tonight he has speed drawn underneath so he should get a nice cart into the race from the three and he should then take over as they head into the first bend.

Smooth Number is in rare form and he hit the line when scoring here last week in 30.20. In that effort he found some bother in running so with a clear run tonight I would expect him to go a lot quicker on the clock.

Von Ryan has a good record here and he should settle near the speed, the box draw isn’t great but he did post his impressive 29.98 PB here from this draw.

Cawbourne Power must be included in your exotics, he doesn’t win very often but he is never far away in this type of company.

Jumble finally showed his true potential last time out and I think he is ready to take the next step. Last week he turned in an almighty performance when placed behind star sprinter Chica Destacada, on that occasion he was fair to begin and he managed to find some bother as they headed into the first turn so he probably should have finished even closer to the winner. From the pink tonight he should get a clear run early and if he gets across he should prove too zippy for his rivals.

Winsome Mission set the track alight here two runs back when winning in 29.68 and he should start the favourite, he has won five of eight to date in explosive fashion and if Jack Kade doesn’t get in his way early he will prove hard to hold out.

Ella Has Class is another one who scored a ridiculously fast win here two runs back and she too can feature with some luck early, she can be slow to begin at times so I’m not too keen on her winning hopes tonight.

Lorella Fire is showing some promise and she must be included in your exotics, while Jack Kade has the early speed to lead them up and he too could hold on for a place.

Tough race but I think the former Tasmanian Varcoe can get the job done. Last time out he resumed from a spell with a top 472m Bulli placing and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. There isn’t a lot of speed drawn directly on his outside so if he can step away cleanly he should be able to drive through and hold a prominent position in the early stages.

Eton Gold has come up with the coveted rails draw and he does his best racing from this pin, I dont think he can hold Varcoe out but he should be able to camp just behind him and fill the quinella spot.

Abunda is racing in great form at present and he possesses smart early speed, if he crosses the inside two he might be able to steal a race winning break as they head to the back straight.

Mr. Fordham could be the value in the event, he was fair when resuming from a lengthy spell last time but he did trial well before that and he should turn in an improved effort.

Gold Dawn is yet to win here in 10 tries but she has turned in some very handy efforts of late and she finds herself in a very winnable race. She is normally very good to begin and the early pressure is going to come from the outside, so if she can step on terms she should have enough natural speed to hold them out at the first turn. This is not a very strong race so if she leads she should have enough in the tank to hold on in the final 50 metres.

Kasinda should match motors with Gold Dawn for most of the trip and she too is getting close to another win, if she was drawn underneath Gold Dawn she would be my top pick, however because she is drawn on the outside I think she might be posted wide for most of the trip so the quinella spot looks best.

Stunning Ashberg hit the line solidly when placed here last week and she shouldn’t be too far away again, I dont think she can win but she would be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Santorini Blue rounds out the chances, he has been disappointing here of late but if he can sight the bunny early he may turn in an improved effort.

Good race and I think the classy Dusty Moonshine should find this race to her liking. In recent times she has found the going tough against the nation’s best stayers but last time out she dropped back in class at The Gardens and she destroyed a field which is similar to what she meets tonight. If she can get away cleanly and settle in the top three, she should prove far too good for this lot.

Stargate System made his Wentworth Park debut last time out and he powered to the line when scoring in 42.63, I think he will be giving Dusty Moonshine too big of a head start but he should be able to run home into the quinella spot.

Ritza Ruby should settle somewhere near the speed and she was a top 42.35 winner here three runs back, she can be a little hit or miss early but if she gets away she should run a cheeky race.

Raramuri is rarely far away in this company and she has a slick 42.15 PB here, she may get shuffled back a bit early but she can run home into a place.

Topper Road is armed with explosive early speed and if he can step away he should be able to burn them off and score. Last week he went through the first marker in a blistering 5.39 before going on to score in 29.97, that was his first run for a few weeks so if he finds the top again tonight I would expect him to go a little quicker overall.

Whittaker is a star in the making and if he can avoid early bother he will take a power of beating, he has plenty on this lot ability wise but I’m concerned about the draw because he can miss away and he is likely to find early bother.

Hazy Rainbow showed tremendous improvement here last week and she should be in the mix again, this is obviously a big class rise but she does possess early speed and she appears to be getting better with more racing.

Winsome Jacko is the real deal and it’s hard to see him being beaten tonight, in his two efforts here of late he has been slow to begin but tonight he has two slow beginners directly on his outside so he should get plenty of room to drive through at the first bend. Last week he rated off the charts and with a trouble free run it will be interesting to see if he can go sub 29.50.

Bessy Boo looks the likely quinella, he has been racing against some real top liners of late and he loves racing over this journey, with Winsome Jacko expected to gap this field, he should be able to run over the top of some stragglers in the home straight.

Remote Control has his favourite draw and he shouldn’t be too far away, he should get plenty of room to muster speed early and he is capable of running time when he lands on the bunny.

Cawbourne Rev rounds out the chances, she scored a strong 30.33 win here two runs back and with some luck early she should be in the mix for some minor money.

Zipping Tarn looked very impressive when she overcame some difficulties to score here last week in 29.95 and with a trouble free run tonight she should be able to score in much faster time. There is a little bit of speed on her outside but she does possess good burn after box rise so she should be able to hold Fort Allen out early.

Asia’s Babe is ideally drawn in the pink and she looks well placed in this class, four starts back she scored a sizzling 34.52 Gosford win and if she can settle in the top four early she should be there at the end tonight.

Fort Allen returned to form with a speedy 29.97 win here last week and he should be in the mix for a long way again.

Peter’s Pick could be the value in the event, he has recorded two strong placings here of late and drawn nearer the inside he could run a big race at nice odds.

Cawbourne Whip returns to her favourite track and she is drawn to make a big impact. She has won six of 18 here and she has a blistering 29.38 PB, there is a bit of speed drawn in the six and seven and that should allow her to get a nice cart across as they head into the first bend. If she settles in the top three early she should prove too strong, so if you can land $2.80 or better that is great over’s.

King Cobber can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting his talent, back in October he won here in a ridiculous 29.60 and since the he has also scored in very fast time at Nowra, he will need to ping and run to win but that isn’t beyond him.

Watto Lotto is well placed nearer the inside and he is a great place hope, he lacks mid race speed but he will scrape the paint and finish on well.

Magic Dream has the speed to lead and he could give a great sight, with Woods cutting left early he should allow Magic Dream to drive through as they head into the first bend.

Miss Dover resumed from a spell with a top effort here last week, after stepping cleanly she led for a long way against Winsome Jacko and she was far from disgraced when beaten by seven lengths. If she can find the early lead tonight she should give a great sight again and this race is a lot weaker than the event she contested last week.

Sexy Opinion should settle just behind Miss Dover and she should run a big race, three starts back she won here in a solid 30.16 and that type of effort again will see her figure prominently.

Black Bronco has been placed here on six occasions and he has strong place claims again, whilst Cosmic Vee Bee is dropping back in distance and she should be steaming home at the end.

Jordan Allen caught the eye with an all the way win here last week in 30.01 and with a similar getaway tonight he should be able to repeat the dose. He is normally quite reliable early and he musters pace quickly so he should have sufficient speed to cross the red in the early stages. This is a pretty weak race so if he finds the bunny it’s hard to see him getting run down whilst running 30 flat on the bunny.

Lektra Brave was far from disgraced when placed behind Jordan Allen last week and he must be respected again, unlike Jordan Allen he can miss the kick at times so from the middle pin he will need to get away cleanly.

Bottom Dollar is a class act when on song and he turned in a great effort when placed at Cranbourne two runs back, he has proven in his career that when given room to muster he is capable of reeling off very impressive sectionals.

Crackerjack Rose rounds out the chances, she has a great record here and she does possess enough speed to settle in the top three early.

This is the first heat of the Silver Chief and it should be a cracker, I’ve gone with WA visitor Tureaud. He comes here having won nine of his 13 career starts and he has set the Cannington track alight in some of those victories. I dont think he has seen the track but if he can handle the first bend he should be good enough to score and he should continue to improve throughout the series.

Quasi Bale is a very fast chaser and with a clear run he will take a power of beating, the concern with him is that he can be slow to begin and he has a heap of pace drawn around him.

Ikaku Bale is the interesting runner, after a luckless debut run here he made significant improvement with a sizzling 30.01 victory here, if he can reproduce that type of effort he will be right in the mix, it’s worth noting that he is $100/1 all in for the final with some bookmakers and if he continues to improve he could be the smokey for the series.

Left Is Right is the most reliable beginner in the event and he returned to form with a top 29.69 Sandown win, he should get a clear run early and he should run a big race.

Dyna Alchemist showed a return to form last time out when placed behind gun sprinter Clash Of Kings last time out and he should be able to go one better tonight. His box manners arent great but he does muster speed at a rate of knots and if given room in the first 30m he will take a power of beating.

Tiggerlong Await is an exciting prospect and he was a strong 30.19 winner here two runs back, I strongly believe he is capable of getting down to the 29.90 mark when given a clear run and if the seven and eight dont come across too quickly he should get every chance to show that type of form.

Dawkins Bale continues to impress and he is drawn to get a nice cart across early, his 29.87 win here two runs back was spectacular and if he is allowed a clear passage through the first bend he should be in the finish.

Weston East has the good draw but he is likely to settle back in the field early, he is quite strong and he must be included in your exotic bets.

This is probably the weakest heat of the lot and if Dyna Norfolk can anticipate the start he might get the cash at nice odds. With a wide runner on his outside, the middle pin shouldn’t pose too many problems and he has been placed in two of his three tries here. He has proven in his career to date that when he finds the bunny early he can run some serious time, so I reckon tonight might be his night at nice odds.

Charleston was solidly placed in his metro debut last time out and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. Prior to that effort he had posted two brilliant Ballarat wins and on each occasion he gave the indication that he will be better suited to this journey.

Quantum bale has plenty of gears and he will be steaming home at the end, from box six he will need a few breaks but he is too good to dismiss.

Amaro Bale has the coveted red draw and he is an improving type, he is likely to settle back in the field but he will finish strongly and he must be included in your exotics.

Great race and logic says to tip Above All, however I think he might be a little flat after his devastating Hobart Thousand Win and I believe Droopy’s Bentley can cause an upset. Droopy’s Bentley scored a blistering 25.13 Shepparton win two runs back and he followed that effort up with a top placing here last week. He is capable of going around the 29.85 mark on the bunny and I think that should be enough to get the job done.

Above All is a an absolute freak and his Hobart Thousand win was probably the best win I have seen for quite some time, he made a gun lineup look like a bunch of grade five chasers, if he brings that form tonight then he wins with ease, however I believe the travelling might take a bit out of him and he is a risk at the short odds.

Bay Boy Sniper set the track alight in his 29.83 trial effort here last week and a similar effort tonight will see him test the two favourites.

Dyna Vickers is a real up and comer and his placing here last week was super, he is likely to get back early but he can finish on strongly into a place.

Dyna Yemen is an enormous talent but he has looked a little off at his past couple, however I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and I believe he can bounce back to his best. The wide draw shouldn’t pose too many problems and he has won here previously in a blistering 29.87, if given a clear passage in the first 50m he should put a space in them.

Fleetwood Zac isn’t a star but he is honest and he has the good draw, two starts back he led all the way at Sandown in 29.64 and a similar effort tonight would probably see him lead for most of the journey.

Opus Forte is a classy NSW speedster and he has scored two dazzling Richmond wins of late, if he can handle the track he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Benzo Bale is very unreliable but when he has bounced on the bunny in the past he has scored some slick wins, from the rails draw he should get a clear run early and he may cause an upset.

Very open affair and it’s hard to look past Zipping Ryan after he scored a devastating 23.60 Bendigo win last time out, on that occasion he showed a blistering turn of foot soon after the start and once he found the bunny he went into overdrive, from the red tonight he should be able to hold them out and he will take some catching.

Dyna Quirk is a real up and comer and he caught the eye with a slick 30.14 win here last week, his box manners arent great but he musters quickly and he should continue to get stronger with every run.

Clash Of Kings has the class edge and he returned to form with a top 29.98 win here last week, if he can step cleanly again he should be able to make an impact, he is much better from a rails draw but he is way too good to dismiss.

Glock is the run on type in the event, he has failed to deliver on his early promise but if there is a mix up near the lead he is still good enough to run over the top late.

Dyna Villa is an absolute star and the reigning Melbourne Cup champ should make light work of these, however I do have a small concern with him. Like Above All he is coming up a tough trip to Tassie and he may be a little flat, if he is off his game tonight, the red may make him work very hard for victory.

Quarrel Bale is perfectly placed in the red and he has turned in some monster efforts at Ballarat of late, he is normally slow to begin but from the red he should settle a little closer to the speed than normal and he may run over the top of them as they round for home.

Gunloch hasn’t had much luck since his impressive 29.98 win here and he will be looking to improve tonight, with a slow beginner on his outside he should be afforded all the breaks as they head into the first bend. Usain I’m Nutty could be the value for the place, he is likely to settle mid pack but he is armed with a strong finish and he is getting better with every race start.

Zeppelin Bale is more than capable and he must be respected at odds also, he led all the way at Sandown last time in 29.54 and a repeat effort tonight will see him be competitive.

Go Mobo is dropping considerably in class tonight and he should lead from go to whoa, last time out at Geelong he stepped cleanly and scored a commanding 29.94 win. If he can produce a similar effort tonight he should be able to build up a nice lead mid race and it’s hard to see them reeling him in.

Classy Boy has been racing well and he is armed with a big finish, he can make a lot of mistakes in his races but if the gaps open up at the right time he will be right in the mix at the end.

Reen’s Fabian has a great record here and he is in good form, if he can get across in the early stages he can make an impact, he does possess good speed so he should be able to settle in the top two early.

Optimus Bart rounds out the hopes, he is very strong and he should get a nice cart across from Reen’s Fabian in the early stages.

Duomo Bale appears to be the real deal and he is unbeaten in his two tries here. In his brief career to date he has shown smart early speed and apart from the pink this race doesn’t feature a lot of early speed.

Izzey Bale beat a classy type here last week in 29.92 and that type of effort would see him figure prominently again, the only concern with him is that he doesn’t box that well and he will need some room in the first 30 or so meters.

Midnight Flynn comes here with strong country form and if he can handle the extra journey he shouldn’t be too far away, his effort at Shepparton two starts back when scoring in 25.29 was ultra impressive.

One of the stronger heats with six genuine winning hopes, I’m going with the explosive Caustic Bale, he has the potential to be the state’s best sprinter and if he can fix his box manners he could go with any chaser in the land. Three starts back he set the Ballarat track alight with a blistering 25.04 win and he does have experience here so he should be able to handle the track.

Ballerino is unbeaten in four tries here and he managed to break the 30 second barrier in his last victory, he is armed with early speed and he appears to be the likely leader.

Dyna Double Dee scored a ridiculous 29.81 win here last week and he is showing enormous potential, I’m not convinced about his early speed but if he gets room early he should be right in the mix.

Prescribe is a gun Tasmanian chaser and he trialled quickly here last week, he should be able to settle in the top three early and he could cause an upset.

Smoken Jimmy is a class act when on song and he has scored some sizzling wins in his brief career to date, from the red he should be able to hold a forward spot early and if he can hold them out he should be running some time on the bunny.

Crackerjack Max is aiming for a hat trick of wins and he continues to go from strength to strength, with a couple of slow beginners on his outside he should get a fairly clear passage early and he should be able to make an impact.

Ultima Bale has the class edge and he scorched around Warragul last time out, he is better suited to a rails draw but he has genuine speed once he hits the ground and he should be able to overcome some minor difficulties early in the race.

Very open race and I think we can find some value with the well drawn Run Right Back. She has raced well from this draw and she should be ready to fire fresh after having six weeks off. Prior to going for a short spell she had turned in some super efforts when placed at Sandown Park and she appears to be better suited to this journey.

Silver Rockstar was narrowly beaten in slick time at Ballarat last time and if he turns in a similar effort tonight he appears to be the main danger, he doesn’t have great box manners but he does have a great turn of foot and that will allow him to put himself into contention early.

Peregon Flyer rounds out the winning chances, he is poorly drawn but he does possess good speed and with a keen railer drawn in the four he should get a clear run early.

Max Moon has won two of his past five and he has been runner up in the other three efforts. On each occasion he has shown smart early speed and if he can reproduce that speed tonight he should be able to get a cheap lead and he will then prove hard to gun down.

Francesco has recorded two solid Horsham placings of late and he could run a nice race at odds tonight, he doesn’t win very often but he hits the line well and he is rarely far away.

Aston Dima should get a nice cart across from Max Moon in the early stages and he should figure prominently for most of the trip, last time out he had no luck over this journey and I’m expecting an improved performance.

Hold On Beau is better than his form reads and he has raced well here in the past, if he goes around at silly odds he could be worth a saver bet.

Andiamo Nemo has the good draw and he recently caught the eye with a strong 28.17 Bendigo win. He has been placed in three of four here previously and this is the weakest race he has contested at this track. With the wide running Spring Grace drawn on his outside he should get a very clear run into the first turn and he should break away as they head for the back straight.

Spring Grace was a zippy 30.20 Meadows winner two runs back and she should give a great sight. In her past three starts she has recorded sizzling early sectionals and I can see her leading again tonight. She tends to drift wide through the turns so I dont think she can hold out the red.

Se’s High Above is armed with a monster finish and she shouldn’t be too far away at the end, she tends to find a lot of trouble so she could be a good anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Allen Quarian is a powerful chaser and if he can find the rail early he should be in the finish, my concern with him is that he can miss away and he will be looking for the rail.

Armed And Ready was beaten when on debut here last time but I’m expecting him to make a lot of improvement tonight. He was a tad slow to begin last week and he had to work hard mid race to stay in contention. From the red tonight he should be able to hold them out early and then put a space in them mid race.

Satsuki Bale is dropping in class and she hasn’t had much luck since her handy 30.11 Meadows win, she is drawn poorly again tonight but the four should give her a nice cart across and that should allow her to settle in a prominent position.

Dyna Chaser returned to form at Geelong with a highly impressive 25.86 Geelong win and if he gets across early he will prove hard to hold out, unlike most of his opponents, he is able to run a genuine 515m.

Xtreme Gretel is a former American chaser now in the care of the in form Robert Britton kennel, he comes here with solid credentials so it will be worth watching the betting moves.

Come On Fantasy is dropping considerably in class and she is drawn to make a big impact. Five starts ago she posted a strong 29.62 win here from this draw over 515m and in that effort she gave every indication that this trip will suit. There is no speed on her outside so if she can step cleanly she should get every chance to lead all the way.

Sonic Pirate has a solid record here and he should be in the mix for most of the journey, he tends to get a little tired in the run home but if he happens to cross the red early he may just be able to establish a race winning lead.

Zipping Bart charged home when placed at Bendigo last time and with some luck early he should be there again, however if he is short odds I would be risking him as he does make a lot of mistakes in his races.

Dyna Glinda rounds out the chances, she has the ability to ping the lids and she caught the eye when winning at The Meadows in 30.12 three runs back.

Tears Siam is the litter sister to gun stayer Space Star and she made a dazzling Victorian debut here last week when winning by a staggering 20 lengths in 41.91. Once again she has drawn perfectly in the pink and if she steps on terms with them again she should prove far too classy for these. She is likely to start $1.50 or shorter but that is still massive over’s against this lineup.

Exquisitus has the ability to lead them up and she may be suited to this journey, outside of the pink this is a very weak race so she should get her own way out in front and she should run a cheeky race.

Born Ali is much better than her recent form suggests and she should give a nice site. She is clearly a fair way from her best but she should still be good enough to fill the quinella spot.

Cambridge Prince rounds out the place chances, he has been racing in consistent fashion and he appeared to hit the line a lot better at Geelong over 680m last time out.

Allen Eryk has been racing in good style here of late and his effort three runs back was enormous. Tonight he has the luxury of slow beginners drawn on his outside so with a clean getaway he should be able to poke through and lead as they head past the post the first time. He is quite strong in the run home so if he does happen to lead I can’t see anything reeling him in.

Oakvale Flyer is making her middle distance debut and she shouldn’t have too much trouble covering the ground. She tends to race best when on the speed and this race doesn’t have too much pace so she should be able to lob in the top two early.

Smart Maxwell is better than his form reads and he does have a very zippy 34.17 PB here, if he can come out cleanly and get a clear run he could give a nice sight at odds.

Cornelius Fudge has regained his best form of late and he should be suited by the wide draw, I dont think he can win tonight but I think he is a genuine place chance.

8MISSILE FLASH (NSW)[4]3757129.57(4)A Dailly (Anakie)

Dyna Nihilist is an absolute beast and I think he can get the job done tonight. Two starts back he turned in a monster performance when placed behind Hobart Thousand finalist Ride The Rails and with an ounce of luck tonight he should go one better. At present he is one of the fiercest chasers in training and he really does look suited near the rail.

Papa Hook has the ability to lead and he is nearing another win. He has recorded three impressive placings in a row here and if he happens to cross them early they might just bunch up behind him and he could steal the prize.

Creative Karisma has a great record here and he should run an improved race from the red, he does have a sizzling 29.34 PB here and with the lack of speed on his outside he should be able to get a clear run in the early stages.

Jayney Bale is a class act and she is capable of just about anything, however tonight I think she is limited to a place chance because she may get posted wide for most of the journey.

Maximum Lil can be hard to follow at times but when she pings the lids she is capable of running blistering times. Two starts back she stepped cleanly and reeled off an explosive 29.86 Meadows win, tonight she meets a similar lineup and apart from the pink there is no early speed at all, so she should get every chance to show her best form.

Where’s The Surf has been placed in six of ten here and he has been desperately unlucky in his past two starts, with an even getaway tonight he should be able to sit just behind Maximum Lil in the early stages and he will then apply pressure as they turn for home.

Hello Good Bye is a long way from his best but two starts back he did record a strong 29.54 win here, if he can repeat that effort he shouldn’t be too far away at the end.

Mepunga Moss had no luck here last week and she is capable of pinging the lids, she is down on confidence but if she finds the bunny early she can turn in an improved performance.

Awesome Project is a gun speedster and he should make light work of this lineup. Two starts back he stepped up in distance to score a dazzling 34.23 win here over 595m and I think he is better suited back to this journey. There is a bit of speed drawn around him tonight but he should be able to out muster them and if you can land $2.50 or better that is value.

Hawk Alone is never far away over this journey and he should be able to return to some form, there is a fair bit of speed in this event so he should be able to settle mid pack and that will allow him to avoid trouble at the first turn.

Humphrey Bale was far from disgraced when placed here last week and from the red he should be in the mix again. He will need a bit of luck at the first turn but if he gets it he should make an impact.

Musquin Bale beat Humphrey Bale here last week and he must be respected again, my concern with him tonight is that the two dogs underneath him have enough speed to match him and he may be posted wide for the first few hundred meters.

Pennsylvania Is surprised me here last Sunday when he came from off the speed to score in 34.59, from the red tonight he should be able to push through and lead them up and on the bunny he should go a lot quicker on the clock. I think he can possibly get down to the 34.20 mark and there isn’t anything in this field that can get down to that sort of time.

Diva’s Shadow is making her middle distance debut and she should give a great sight. She is armed with smart early speed and she should match motors with Pennsylvania Is for most of the journey, she may get a little tired in the run home but she should be able to hold on for a place.

Bonjour Bonsoir was far from disgraced when placed at The Meadows last time and she should be in the mix again, she lacks early speed but she is strong and she is a must for your exotic bets.

Tricky Rose is back to her brilliant best and she is drawn to make a big impact. Three starts back she showed a dazzling turn of foot soon after box rise when scoring at The Meadows in 30.31 and she should take some stopping again, with a clear run she is capable of running some serious time and this looks her race.

Rumero Reason has turned in three strong performances since resuming from a short spell and he is bursting to break through. He is going to need a lot of luck in running but if the gaps open at the right time he could get the cash.

Dyna Fatbob is dropping in class and he is suited by the rails draw, he can be hit or miss early but he is capable of good things when he steps cleanly.

Polly Bale rounds out the chances, she is better than her form reads and she only needs a clear run in the first 50m to feature.

Hestia Bale has been racing well in much stronger company of late and she gets her chance to score tonight. She is better suited to a rails draw but she still has the speed to cross and she has won three of her seven tries here.

Sage Bale should be in the mix for a long way and he too is dropping in class, with a wide runner on his outside he should get a clear passage early and he will get his chance to make an impact.

Dr. Rahoual is well drawn out wide and he will be strong in the run to the line, he has won here previously in a solid 29.67 and if given some room early he should be able to turn in a similar effort tonight.

King Rockstar rounds out the winning chances, he has speed to burn and if he settles in the top two early he may prove hard to reel in.

Humming Birdhill put her best paw forward last time out and she looked ultra impressive when scoring at The Meadows in 30.06. In that effort she showed a great turn of foot soon after box rise and with a similar run in the early stages tonight she should get every chance to lead throughout.

Jagman continues to improve and he should run a big race again, last time out he beat the exciting Gunloch at Cranbourne in 30.57 and he only needs luck early to feature.

Flame Bale scored a hot 30.14 Meadows win three runs back and if she repeats that effort she should run a big race again, she normally shows early speed and there isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn underneath her.

Hilda’s Best should follow Flame Bale across early and he should make up for his luckless effort here last week.

Breaker Kahn looks well placed in the red and he was far from disgraced when placed here last Thursday behind Set The Scene. On that occasion he led for most of the journey and was nabbed in the shadows of the post, if he can lead again tonight he should give a great sight.

Wheels Of Fire should be suited by the wide draw and if given room in the first 50m he will prove hard to hold out, he has beaten a great lineup in his past two starts here and he appears to have the class edge.

Squall Bale is the run on type in the event and two starts ago he unleashed a monster finish to score here in 30.14, if the gaps open at the right time mid race he should be right in the mix.

Bogie Classic rounds out the chances, she can ping the lids at times and she can run time on the lure.

Irish Keepsake hasn’t had much luck in his past two tries here and she might be able to score at nice odds tonight. She is likely to start big odds but she has the speed to lead and she appears to be getting stronger with more racing.

Dashing Dee Dee has a slick 29.90 PB here and if she can improve her box manners she will take a power of beating.

Allinga Dot is the interesting runner, she has been placed in five of 11 here and some of those placings have been in sizzling times, if she can find the rail soon after the start she should make a powerful move mid race.

Boonoona Boy is the only other winning prospect, he is bursting to win again and he appears to be showing a lot more early speed than normal.

Woodside Jagger should be suited by the wide draw and he should get every chance to lead throughout, in recent weeks he has been unlucky because he has been able to find the early lead but a strong chaser has landed on his back each time. Tonight he should be able to break away mid race and he should be running time on the lure.

Animate is never far away and her effort here two runs back was enormous, she will settle mid pack but she finishes off nicely and with luck in running she should feature.

Velocity Daff has the good draw but she rarely wins, once again I dont think she can win but she has great place prospects.

Allen Nemo is a class act when on song and he was a tad unlucky on Monday night, if he can settle in the first half he is capable of scoring.

Luna Jinx returned to racing with a blistering 43.07 win here last week and she should make light work of this lot. She is suited by the small field and as long as she doesn’t get crowded early she should take over mid race and put a space in them.

Psychotic Gold is resuming from a two month spell and if she is fit she will give the favourite a scare. She has won 11 of 19 here and she only needs luck in the first 50m to feature, my only concern is that she may give Luna Jinx too big of a head start.

Zara Mclaren is another with a great record here and she is drawn to run a cheeky race, she doesn’t have the talent of the other two but she is very honest.

Aston Wingard is an exciting prospect and he should make every post a winner tonight. He doesn’t have great box manners but he does possess a blistering turn of foot, if he is given room in the first 20m he should get the job done. He is still a little suspect in the final stages but he should be good enough to hold on.

Spring Tyson showed a heap of improvement when scoring in 30.03 here last week and she should prove hard to reel in again, she must lead to win but if the favourite gets crowded early she will get every chance to find the top early.

Red Line Lad is very strong and she is well drawn out wide, he was a smart 30.26 winner here four runs back and a repeat performance will see him hit the scoreboard tonight.

Sporting Tears was a tad disappointing here last week but he can improve tonight, I dont think he can win because there is too much speed underneath but a top three finish isn’t beyond him.

Danyo’s Luke doesn’t have great form but his most recent racing has been in much stronger class and if he can get away with them on terms he can return to the winners list. He has bombed the start in recent weeks and he hasn’t been experiencing much luck, this is a big drop in class tonight so he just needs a few breaks to make an impact.

Big Zap is likely to start a short priced favourite and he too will be suited by the drop in class, he has been a tad disappointing in his past two runs but he is in good hands and I’m expecting an improved effort.

Disco Dave has the speed to cross and he should give a bold sight, he tends to stop in the last 30m but he should have enough in the tank to hold on to a top three finish.

Very open affair but I think Cairnlea Layla is drawn to return to the winners list. In recent weeks she has found bother soon after the start when she has crashed to the inside, drawn in the two tonight she should be able to find the rail easy and if she finds the bunny she will be reeling off sizzling sectionals.

Fancy Rick should sit just behind the two early and he will pressure her for most of the journey, I dont think he can reel her in but he should fill the quinella spot.

Black Bottle is flying and if he gets across he can win but he must lead to win his races and from the pink he is going to have to work very hard in the early stages.

Spring Charlotte is very honest and she must be included in your exotic bets, she has the ability to lead or come from off the speed in her races.

Emerley Senorita scored a tremendous 29.82 win here two runs back and she should lead from go to whoa again tonight. With a slow beginner on her outside tonight she should get plenty of room in the early stages and she is a class act.

Blue Viper has the good draw and she has won five of nine over this journey. From the red she should get plenty of room to drive through because both the two and three like to use a bit of the track as they head through the turn.

Set The Scene is armed with a monster finish and if he avoids bother early he will prove hard to hold out, he does make a lot of mistakes in his races so he will need to be a nice price to back straight out.

Gun Mcbain has the speed to cross and he can run a big race if he lands on the bunny, the only concern is that there is a fair bit of speed drawn underneath him.

Black Daddy caught the eye when scoring here two runs back in 35 flat and if he can turn in a similar performance tonight he will prove extremely hard to hold out. He will be suited by the smaller field and apart from Spring Amanda there appears to be no speed at all.

Spring Amanda should match motors with Black Daddy for most of the journey but she might get burnt off a little after mid way.

Oran Bale is showing plenty of promise and he deserves a change of luck. His lack of early speed makes things difficult for him but he is learning to weave his way through a field and tonight he finds himself in a race which has numerous chasers that struggle to run out the trip. If he can get into some open space through the first turn he should be ready to pounce on the leaders as they turn for home.

Spring Pearl scored a strong 30.32 win here two runs back and she should give a good sight again, with a wide runner drawn on her outside she should get every chance to drive through at the first bend.

Alex Tyson rounds out the chances, he has been mixing his distances of late but he is much better suited to this journey.

Pictures Pearce scored a brilliant 30.15 debut win here two weeks back and if he can show similar early speed tonight he should put himself in the box seat to score again, he obviously meets some talented youngsters here but he put the time on the board in his win and he should figure prominently.

Georgina has a heap of talent but she just can’t get any luck in running at present. With a keen railer drawn underneath she should get room to muster in the early stages and she should run a big race.

Dark Spur smashed his rivals when winning on debut at Ipswich and he is drawn to make an impact again, I’m sure connections would have trialled him here so he shouldn’t have too much trouble handling the first turn.

Tear Away Size is an extremely fast chaser when on her game and from the red she is drawn to get all the breaks. With a very slow beginner drawn on her outside, she should get plenty of room to drive through early and assume control, if she gets to the first marker in front, there isn’t a single runner who can reel her in.

Mister To Us will be powering home at the business end and if the gaps open mid race he can test the red in the run home. He is going to be better suited to a longer journey but he is still good enough to feature over this journey.

Buck City showed tremendous improvement in her sizzling 30.42 Ipswich win and if she brings that form to town she can cause an upset.

Fred Sealey is resuming from a short spell and he should run a cheeky race at odds. He has broken 30 seconds here previously and he should be able to poke through at the first turn and hold a prominent position. This is one of the weakest races he has contested for a while and he should be good value.

Line Up Buoys has scored two impressive wins here of late and he has the speed to make every post a winner, with two slow beginners on his outside he should get all the breaks initially.

Astound Ya tends to race best at Ipswich but he still has a good 30.09 PB here, if he can get away on terms he should be able to put himself in a winning position in the early stages.

Good lineup set to do battle and I think we can find some value with Killara, she has been luckless in her two recent runs here over 520m and from the rails draw tonight I think she can poke through early and hold them out, she has been crying out for this journey and she should give a bold showing.

Dzeko is a real up and comer and she caught the eye when winning here in 34.91 recently, if she can step away on terms she should settle in a prominent position and she can then go into overdrive mid race.

Good Call Paul has the class edge and he must be respected but the concern with him is that he was a tad disappointing here last week, this is a bit easier but he will still need to do everything right early.

Flick Pass has a good record here and he could run a cheeky race at odds.

Frosty Jay Jay is resuming from a lengthy spell and he looks well placed to make his return to the race track. Obviously I dont know his progress on the trial track but for him to be making a return he must be doing something right. With a speedy beginner and keen railer underneath, he should get a nice cart into the race and if he is fit he should run a big race.

Dream River should make the race for the pink and if the pink can’t keep up he may be off and gone with the prize. He is armed with dazzling early speed and he has won here previously in a zippy 29.86.

Pikelet is in great form and her last win came from the red box in a slick 29.95 here, if she can reproduce that effort she will prove very hard to hold out.

Abby’s Fantasy is the only other winning chance, she has the speed to lead and she is racing in very consistent fashion at present.

Great final and I think the classy Mullaway holds the key to the race, last week he had to work hard to find the early lead and he was found wanting in the home straight. Tonight I am expecting him to get a much cheaper lead and I can’t see them reeling him in when he is running sub 34.80 on the bunny.

Hougenie has the good draw and she has a top record here, from the red she should hold a top three spot early and she should be there at the end.

Regal Lauryn is in devastating form but she is poorly drawn tonight, if she happens to get through early she can win but it is likely that she will get strung up in traffic early.

Tuavasa Shek will be storming home late and he continues to improve over the staying journeys.

Iva Vision has won nine of 13 over this journey and he has a breathtaking 29.62 PB. From the pink draw he should get a nice cart across early and he should put them to the sword as they head into the turn.

Cyndie’s Special has been racing well without winning of late and she should give a great sight again, if the favourite happens to find bother early she may be off and gone with the prize.

Fusaichi Kahn was recently placed in the Cup final here and he should be thereabouts again, he can be hit or miss early but if he gets away cleanly he will run a monster race.

Bill’s Fantasy has won two of his past four and he should be in the firing line for a long way, he must lead to win but even if he doesn’t he can still hold on for a place.

Stella Nights has scored two ridiculous wins of late and she appears to have panels on this lot. She has pinged the lids in her past two starts so it’s not beyond her to ping away again and if she does there is no way they can beat her.

Renatus is a reliable beginner and he is also aiming for a hat trick of wins, if the favourite happens to miss the kick he may be able to capitalise early and build up a nice break mid race.

Cyndie’s Magic is a real up and comer and she should run a monster race, she didn’t have much luck in her heat and if given a clear run she is capable of going well under the 30 second barrier.

Kingsbrae Lavina rounds out the genuine chances, she has scored two top wins here of late and she will continue to get better with more racing over this trip.

Whata Nice Size has a blistering turn of foot and he looked ultra impressive when scoring here last time in 29.89, once again he hasn’t drawn to well but he has a slow beginner on his outside so he shouldn’t get crowded in the first 50m.

Bon Yeo is the obvious danger but the draw is a bit of a concern for him, he isn’t the best of beginners and the last two times he has exited this draw he has got shuffled back in the early stages.

Miss Kamikaze had little luck when resuming from a spell and she should look to show improvement, she is also better suited to a wider draw but she is very talented and must be respected.

Spanish Queen should settle on the speed with the favourite and she should run a cheeky race, she will struggle in the last 40m but she might be able to hold on for a place.

Abby’s Magic is a highly promising speedster and if she can step cleanly tonight she should make a big impact. Early in her career she posted a ridiculous 24.98 Ipswich win and if given the chance to produce that effort here she will definitely test this lot.

Princess Canute is making her metro debut and she has been turning in some eye catching performances at Ipswich of late, she is normally a very reliable beginner and if she can push through early she will take some catching.

Art Of Confusion hasn’t had much luck of late but she does have a lot of ability, from the six she will need the breaks again but if she gets them she can run a big race at odds.

Where Have Our Customers Gone?

The fact is that greyhound racing has hardly any customers left. It has not happened overnight but it has been building up ever since SKY pictures started appearing in lounge rooms and social clubs from the late 1980s.

The need to visit the racecourse gradually and remorselessly unwound. The attraction was no longer there. With that came a decline in the knowledge of racing, of how dogs race and how they react to certain tracks and distances, of what bookmakers do and, indeed, what price is a good price.

(Coincidentally, a personal view is that the parallel move away from traditional bookmaker’s pricing to the decimalised tote system helped to destroy the concept of odds. People more often expected a $2.00 pop to win all the time rather than win once out of every two attempts as a 1/1 favourite. It may also be no coincidence that the last two decades have also seen a substantial decline in the proportion of high school students taking mathematics in any form).

In its place, we got casual, lottery-like betting on the numbers, sometimes with help from tipsters in your favourite publication. All of which are dubious propositions. And all of which are now being stimulated by one-shot access to betting opportunities via your hand-held device, complete with apps about form and competing offers from a variety of betting operators.

So we forgot about being racing’s customers and morphed into a world where we became customers of the betting systems, much of it online. Whatever they offered, we accepted without query, without analysis, without advice from people we once rubbed shoulders with at the track. Hence the over-bet favourites and all the rest of it.

One outcome of this process would be a decline in knowledge and appreciation of the greyhound breed, and with that a decline in support from the general public. Those images were never strong anyway but the further away from the action the average punter got the weaker that image became.

Contrast that with pictures of fit young men striding on to the football field, attractively attired and stirred up by hordes of fanatical supporters filling the grounds. Yes, they have had their periodic problems too but note how sporting authorities relentlessly seek to maintain and build their squeaky clean images and to present their products more sensitively to women and children. They have customers, no doubt about that, which is why general sports have now overtaken harness racing in the betting stakes and are threatening greyhounds in second place.

In racing, only Tabcorp and Tattsbet now have customers in any numbers, although the latter is losing out steadily. But, by default, they now dominate the sport. They run things. They even outrank governments which are happy just to count the tax income at the end of the week.

The solution? There is no other option but to go out and meet that public, to address them in person, to educate them properly in the mysteries of the greyhound and the intricacies of betting. Don’t let them guess or take the word of people with ulterior motives or even of mates they rub shoulders with in the pub.

The industry cannot just throw out information and hope it hits the mark. It has to be directed and reinforced on screen, in brochures, across the ether and in person. Explain how everything works and how they can take part.

The default position – do nothing – can only increase the level of misinformation, leaving the money-grabbers in charge and reducing it all to poker machine standards.

How Others Are Thinking

A sobering view of the industry came from writer Matt Nicholls on the justracing.com.au website. Let’s quote him directly.

“It is a worrying trend in racing that 90% (by my estimation) of racing reporters are either employed directly by the industry, or employed by people who are given large subsidies by the industry. To clarify that statement, I am including Tabcorp as part of the industry, as its bread and butter is wagering on the three codes of racing.

So basically every reporter seen on TVN or Sky Racing is being fed by the industry. That’s not to say that some won’t make an informed opinion about issues, but you’ll find the majority are either fence sitters or too scared to say anything negative.

The same goes for the reporters that work for the various daily newspapers around the country. While there are still a couple of good ones left, most of them have become puppets for the industry”.

Fortunately, this website is able to present objective views on a variety of subjects, and to prompt debates which you will never see on racing authority pages.

* * * * *

Nick Cater, in The Australian, 9 December, writing about the tendency for universities to strive more for political correctness than to encourage differing viewpoints, said …

“Higher education is stuck, for now, with an exhausted funding model that gives preference to quantity over quality. It is burdened, too, with a culture that despises pluralism and shouts down debate”.

* * * * *

Finally, the other day, the left-leaning Sydney Morning Herald printed a long list of letters to the editor ripping into Treasurer Joe Hockey for failing to continue handouts to a variety of deserving causes. The fact that the country is spending more than it earns was lost to these people and to the editor who was unable to present any contrary views.

The whole deal finished with one correspondent advising that “Prayer can produce miracles”. Really? For the Federal budget. Like how?

Cosmic Illusion is well placed in the pink draw and she was a tad unlucky here last week. She is normally a very reliable beginner and three placings on the trot she is overdue to break through. There is a bit of speed drawn in the middle and they should carve up the inside division and that should allow her to get the fly early.

Kalden Legenda can ping the lids and he has a heap of talent, if he gets away cleanly tonight he should sit just behind Cosmic Illusion and fill the quinella spot.

Kalden Kapone scored a devastating 22.12 win here last week and a repeat of that will see him go close again, the concern tonight is that there is a fair bit of speed around him and he will need a few things to go his way early.

Dakota La Flash is likely to start short odds but it’s worthwhile anchoring her up front in your exotics and taking the all up with Cosmic Illusion. Last time out she gapped a handy field when scoring here in 22.25 and she is better suited to this distance range. Rockin’ Loot is the only one who will challenge her early but she should put pay to her as they head for the back straight.

Emerley Occa is suitably drawn in the pink and he was solidly placed here two runs back, he can’t win the race but he can sneak into a placing.

Rockin’ Loot as stated earlier, should settle near the speed and he is a great place prospect, he was solidly placed here over this trip last time and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

How They Play With Your Money

A reader has queried the source of my comment about Tabcorp altering Fixed Odds bets while the race is under way. I must confess I can’t find the reference at the moment but the issue came up during a blog discussion about punters’ FO bets being accepted or rejected. Several contributors were complaining about getting the amount of their bet halved and about slow processing of their “application”. Of course, this is why your FO bet at a TAB outlet often takes quite a while to accept, usually holding up customers waiting their turn behind. That occurs even for small bets because they have been placed in a clearing queue for the operator to process.

You see these complaints regularly and my policy is generally to make a mental note and leave it at that until more confirmation is available. However, in this case a “value” customer of Tabcorp’s also offered a copy of an email he got back from the operator which specifically advised him they knew the race had already started by the time they reduced his bet (the dog actually lost anyway).

When you place this is an environment where Tabcorp’s manual instructs staff to consider each bet for acceptance, reduction or rejection (we have a verbatim copy of those instructions) it gives you the obvious impression that the company is dedicated to making a profit on every race, no matter what. That climate or culture, call it what you will, is consistent with the above email advice to the customer. There is no question of making a “book” and taking their chances against the betting public. Add to that Tabcorp’s practice of offering FO prices or books of around 130% and you can then see the age-old principle of each party having a chance of a win is looking very thin. Those odds, please note, are not covered by the tote’s legal obligation to average a 16% deduction over the course of a year. It can get away with pretty much anything it likes to do.

There is another example of this sort of behaviour available in Tabcorp’s everyday practice of encouraging Mystery bets which include a boxed Trifecta. Not only do these attract high takeouts of 21% in NSW (25% when hosting international pools) but they are also guaranteed losers before the race starts. This occurs because the Tabcorp computer which assigns the three starters to each bet takes runners from each price bracket – short, medium and long – and each of those is, by definition, at a much different price. Yet the boxed bet assumes that each have the same chance. You are therefore investing as much on the favourite winning as you are on a 10/1 shot, which is mathematical madness.

When one of the favoured runners runs a place (it does not have to win) the dividend will be much smaller than the odds demand. In the much less likely event that the favourite misses a place, that dividend will be higher than justified by the true odds. Good luck as to which side of the coin you fall on.

I should add that tipsters are also prone to suggest boxed bets to unwary customers. That includes the Watchdog which recommended five such bets in the 12-race meeting at Sandown last Thursday night. Only one of those succeeded, paying a very modest $42, even though a $5.20 dog won the race.

Tabcorp, of course, has a tote monopoly in its markets, so excess profits from FO and Mystery bets serve to put some icing on the cake. It is also why the vast majority of gamblers will lose money over a period

It is little wonder that many folk are calling for better regulation of Australia’s betting market, starting with a national betting pool.

A Distance Too Far

Sometimes I wonder about my fellow punters. The betting shock of the week had to be at Horsham last Tuesday. It wasn’t so much the result as the price.

The evidence was already there. My earlier comments about 425m dogs (ie Bendigo) being a different batch to 450m dogs (ie Ballarat) were no better illustrated than when a short course flier, El Grand Seal, got caught near the post in its Ballarat Cup heat and then again in the Consolation on Cup final night. Sure, he has won at 450m and even 460m but not when heavy hitters are in the offing. Still, he has put up some good fights but by far his best career run has been a 23.50 at Bendigo. That’s his peak. After that, it all gets harder.

But nothing could prepare me for the trainer putting him in a 480m event at Horsham. This is not just a tough trip in one-turn racing terms, it also finds out many good city winners. They cannot handle the long home straight. There is no tougher sprint in the country. Yet here I found El Grand Seal sitting up in box 1 in a short field of solid if not spectacular dogs. Several were well capable of running 27.20 to 27.30.

Never mind all that. The Watchdog priced him at $1.30 while the market settled for $1.60 in both NSW and Victoria. Amazing, absolutely amazing. Not that it would be impossible for it to win but it had to be a huge task. And so it turned out. In the race, Hekatia Bale led the favourite out of the boxes but both got run down by the strong finishing Quick Kisses in an average sort of time of 27.37. El Grand Seal did his thing but even his top class mentor, Jeff Britton, must have been hoping against hope over this distance.

El Grand Seal had won only three of its last eleven starts and all those wins were over 425m or less. So, was the short price due to the Watchdog’s leadership (as often happens) or general pressure from punters on the day? Probably a bit of both but the whole process was very sheep-like.

Looking back over the weekend beforehand I found seven dogs started at odds-on at the three major tracks. Four won, including Zipping Willow and Winsome Mission which were no-brainers. However, an even dollar on each of the seven would have given you back $6.10 for your $7.00 investment. Taking odds-on is a mug’s game. The TAB takes out enough already without going down that road.

Happily, I took three Quinellas at Horsham and the winning combination paid $36.90 in NSW, mainly because El Grand Seal ran only 3rd. If only I could do this every week.

Meantime, distance is undoubtedly the greatest single leveller in greyhound racing. Add a false favourite and you are in business.

We’re Off Here is a very fast chaser when on the bunny and he should make up for his luckless effort here last week. Last week he missed the kick and was never really a factor, tonight’s race doesn’t feature a lot of early speed so with a clean getaway he should have the speed to carve across and he should prove too zippy for these.

Summer Wages is a class act and he should be able to follow the seven across as they head into the first bend, he is quite strong in the run to the line but I’m a little concerned that We’re Off Here might burn him off mid race.

Stealthy Blonde should settle just behind them and she has been racing consistently, with a trouble free run she should finish in the placings.

Dromore’s Pearl was a brilliant 25.95 winner here three runs back, a repeat of that will see her feature but she will need luck from the poor draw.

Rowdy Rhonda is an explosive talent and if she reproduces the effort which saw her win at Ballarat on debut in 25.08 she will take a power of beating. She possess a ridiculous turn of foot and after slow starts at her previous two efforts she hasn’t had a chance to show it. With the speedy Time To Embrace drawn underneath she should get a clear run into the race and the time should be interesting.

Cosmic Break has scored two powerful wins here of late with the latest being in a blistering 25.86, he is well placed in the wide draw and he should be there at the end.

Miss Society has the perfect draw and she has the speed to hold them out, she has been racing in strong class of late and she could be the value in the event.

Kankakee Mclaren has been racing in good form of late and he looks well placed in this event, he is normally a very reliable beginner and he finds himself in a race which lacks early speed. Last time out he was placed behind a gun speedster and if he finds the early lead tonight he should put a space in them off the back straight.

Dyna Phoebe had little luck in her SA debut and she should turn in an improved effort. There is no speed drawn around her so she should be able to drive through into a prominent spot early.

Kash Kist is better than his form reads and he could sneak into a place, whilst Arisia Bale has the good draw and she posted her only career win here from this draw.

Taser Mcbain turned in a monster performance when placed here last Thursday night and she should be able to go one better. She normally pings the lids and records very fast sectionals, however last time out she appeared to show a lot more strength in the run home, tonight I think she can lead all the way at nice odds.

Better Call Saul was a devastating 30.64 Gawler winner last month and a repeat of that effort will see him figure prominently again.

Cool Duke is well drawn out wide and he should be in contention for a long way, this is the weakest race he has contested for a while and he must be included in your exotics and quaddies.

Mepunga Sammy has had no luck at all since resuming from a spell and he should be suited by the rise in distance. Back in April he posted a blistering 29.32 victory here over 515m and if he can produce those sort of sectionals early he should be able to build up a monster lead mid race. Being by Bekim Bale and the manner in which he hits the line over 515m, I believe he should have no trouble covering the ground.

Tears Siam is ideally drawn out wide and she comes here with solid NSW staying form, she has recently joined the powerful Robert Britton kennel and she should be primed for a bold first up showing in Victoria.

Abbey’s Hand should settle near the speed and she should give a nice sight, the last 50m may be a concern but she should be able to hold on for a place.

Mimicking is a long way from his best but this is the weakest race he has contested for a while so he must be included in your exotic bets..

Opec Bale has been racing in explosive fashion and he really powered to the line when scoring at Horsham last time in 32.79. With a clean getaway tonight he should be able to settle in the top three and he should prove far too strong in the run home.

Macca’s Sway is making his debut over this journey and he should be suited by the rise in distance, he has had no luck in recent times but if you go back through his form he does have a brilliant 27.37 Horsham victory to his credit.

Pennsylvania Is has the good draw and she should lead them up for a long way, I’m not convinced that she will run the journey but she should have enough in the tank to hold on for a place.

Dr. Des rounds out the chances, he has a lot of talent and he has won here previously in a smart 34.43.

Soaring Eagle was far from disgraced when placed here last week and he appears well placed in this company. Last time out he was slow to begin but he finished on strongly when placed behind the classy Chica Destacada. With the wide running My Awesome Opal on his outside he should get plenty of room to muster in the early stages and he should get every chance to lead throughout.

Knot Telling Ya was a strong 30.08 winner here three runs back and he appears to be a major player again, he has had no luck soon after box rise in his two subsequent runs and tonight I would expect an improved performance.

Evoked has a great record here and she should be hitting the line solidly, she can be slow to begin at times but with a very slow beginner underneath she shouldn’t get shuffled too far back.

Watto Lotto is all class and he is still racing very well, he will be looking for the rail soon after box rise, so he is going to need a lot of luck but if he gets it he should be there at the end.

Zipping Tarn has been racing in consistent form of late and her effort two runs back behind Lady Ronray was highly impressive. She is normally a very safe beginner and with a clean getaway she should be able to show sufficient speed to hold them out. She has a slick 29.85 PB here and if she can reproduce that effort she will prove extremely hard to run down.

Magic Dream was placed behind the in form Bad Boy Sniper last time out and he should be in the mix again. He has a few slow beginners drawn on his outer so he should get room to muster pace and he should be able to settle in the top three early. Fancy Chance showed great improvement when placed here last week and he should be too far away again. The box draw doesn’t help but he does have good track sense and he can work his way into contention. Zipping Bruno is the run on dog in the event, he can run some serious time when given a clear run and he only needs an ounce of luck early to feature.

Karma Connie is a highly promising speedster and she really looked impressive when scoring a commanding 29.91 win here two runs back. On that occasion she had to work hard and push through in the early stages from the red box. From the pink tonight she should get more space in the early stages and therefore she should show a little more natural zip. She appears to have a fair bit on these so with any sort of luck she should be winning.

Jack Kade struggles to run out the journey but he should be able to lead them for a long way. He has been solidly placed in his past two tries here and if he finds the bunny early I would expect him to hold on for a place again.

Cawbourne Power has the good draw and he has been placed in 23 of his 37 tries here, he should get a nice sit on Jack Kade early and he is very strong in the run home.

Wayfarer rounds out the chances, she comes here with strong Victorian form and she has recently joined the strong White kennel.

Chilli Sierra was a tad disappointing from the red draw here last week but she does appear to be better suited to a wider draw. With the speedy Dragon Emgrand drawn underneath she should be able to get a nice cart across in the early stages and when she finds the lure early in her races she can reel off some slick sectionals.

Coolabah Jet races well from wide draws and she destroyed her rivals when winning in 29.91 here last time out. Tonight she is going to need a bit of luck early because there is a fair bit of speed drawn around her but she is flying and it’s hard to look past her.

To A Tee is super consistent and if he can find the rail early he shouldn’t be too far away at the end. Three starts ago he posted a strong 30.01 win here and he has showed terrific track sense in his two subsequent runs.

Kurmond Goddess rounds out the winning hopes, she has the ability to ping the lids and there is no speed drawn underneath her, so with a clean getaway she should have no trouble finding the rail.

Great race and I’m a hug fan of Anything Less, this star chaser has won nine of 14 here and he has reeled off some ridiculous sectionals in those wins. With the one and three expected to lead, he should be able to sit just off the speed and as they head into the back straight he should go into another gear. He is going to go on to win much better races than this and with an ounce of luck tonight he should win easily.

Exhibitionist has the good draw and she should lead them a merry dance, three starts back she won here in 29.70 and that type of effort would see her figure in the finish again tonight.

Ritza Hattie turned in a monster effort when placed behind Zipping Willow two runs back and she should be suited by the empty draw on her outside tonight.

Bessy Boo is poorly drawn but he loves racing here and he will be running on at the end, he probably can’t win but he could be a great dog to anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Martin Clegg bombed the start last week and he had to work overtime mid race and it really told when he weakened in the run home. From the red I am expecting him to begin a lot better and he should have sufficient speed to hold them out early. He has proven in his brief career that he can run fast times when on the bunny so if he holds them out tonight he will give a great sight.

Winsome Mission is a freakish talent and he was never headed in his explosive 29.68 heat win. He pinged the lids last time from the red, from the middle pin tonight I’m expecting him to miss away and he won’t get things his way in the early stages. He is still a winning chance but I think he will be under the odds.

Mr Emgrand sizzled early in his top 29.88 heat win and if he steps away like that again he should figure prominently, Grin To Win is a wide runner so he should get enough room to muster speed after box rise.

Cherokee Fiddle is probably the only other winning hope, he should be able to drive up behind Martin Clegg at the first bend and if he settles in the first half he should be there at the end.

She is normally a safe beginner and with the slow beginning Zipping Jackie drawn underneath she should get every chance to find the rail and lead soon after box rise.

Barcelona Star pinged the lids and never looked in doubt in her top 30.02 heat win, if she can begin like that again she should settle in the top two early and she can probably go a little quicker on the clock.

Oban has been placed in four of five here and she shouldn’t be too far away again, there is a bit of speed drawn around her but if she can get some room in the first 50m she should make an impact.

Gilgamesh returned from a long spell to win here in 29.90 and she must be respected again, she is drawn poorly tonight but she does have a fair bit of early zip so she should still be able to put herself into contention.

Chica Destacada is a superstar and she is drawn to make every post a winner. Last week she pinged the lids and destroyed her opposition when scoring in a blistering 29.77. If she can step cleanly again she should have no trouble holding them out and winning with ease again.

Zipping Willow is the obvious danger and she is actually not too badly drawn in the six box. She races better from wide draws and two starts back she set the track alight with a scorching 29.52 win here. I dont think she can cross the red early so therefore she can’t win, however she has panels on the rest so she should fill the quinella spot.

Rue De Kahn has a great record here and she normally steps cleanly, there isn’t a heap of speed drawn underneath her so she should be able match motors with Chica Destacada for most of the journey.

Peter’s Pick could be a value bet for the place, he should get a nice sit early behind the red and he is much better than his recent form suggests.

Frost Yourself is an exciting prospect and she looked impressive when scoring at The Gardens two runs back in 29.73. She should be able to follow Santorini Blue through at the first turn and she should then assume control as they round for home. She appears to have plenty on these and she really looks to be the best of the night.

Rum Punch has the speed to cross and lead and he is a much better chaser when on the bunny, four runs back he caught the eye with a speedy 22.57 Richmond win and that type of effort would see him be competitive here.

Santorini Blue has explosive early speed and he should be in the mix for a long way, my only concern with him is that he has hit a wall in the closing stages in his two tries here of late.

Stunning Ashberg is the run on type in the event and she must be included in your exotics, she is likely to get too far back early to win but she could be a great anchor for third and fourth in your exotics.

Winsome Jacko is a class act and he should make up for his luckless effort here last week. Last time out he bombed the start and he was never out of trouble, tonight he has a slow beginner on his outside so if he can step on terms he should be able to muster pace quickly and blow them away soon after the start. I hope he gets a trouble free run because it will be interesting to see what he puts on the clock.

Subway To Venus has the good draw and she should be in a prominent position throughout, she isn’t overly strong but she appeared to hit the line well when winning at Richmond last time in 30.88.

Smooth Rebel should be suited by the empty draw on his outside and he should run a cheeky race.

Miss Dover is the interesting runner, she is blessed with a lot of talent but she has been injury plagued of late.

Adam Handler finally broke through here last week with a brilliant 30.12 heat win. After beginning fairly he showed an abundance of speed and went past the second marker in a best of the day 17.73. If he can repeat that effort he will be very hard to reel in. There appears to be a fair bit of speed in the seven so he should be able to get a nice cart across in the early stages.

Dyna Double One scored an explosive 30 flat debut win here and he is the obvious danger. In his heat effort he had to overcome early difficulties so he is capable of going even quicker. My only concern with him is that his first section of 5.25 is pretty average so he may get strung up in traffic soon after the start.

Cigar Same has recorded two handy placings here to date and he shouldn’t be too far away again, he is a bit hit or miss early but he can feature if he steps cleanly.

Tobias Kelton and Dyna Vickers are the only other winning hopes, both were impressive heat winners and with luck in running both can feature.

Charleston is an exciting prospect and if he reproduces the form which saw him record two commanding Ballarat wins he will prove extremely hard to hold out. On both occasions he was fair to begin but he showed a dazzling turn of foot. From the pink draw he should get every chance to muster speed and put himself into the race at the first bend and the manner in which he hit the line at Ballarat suggests he won’t have too much trouble running out the journey.

Our Spinner is drawn to find the early lead and he caught the eye when winning at Cranbourne in 30.58 recently. There is a little bit of speed drawn on his outside but if he can step cleanly he should have sufficient speed to hold them out.

Tzar Norma showed great mid race pace in her top placing here two runs back and that type of effort would see her feature again, she is likely to be nice odds so she may be worth an each way ticket.

Alpha Zeus was solidly placed here last week and he should have enough speed to settle just behind Our Spinner in the early stages, he will want to get a little wide early but he should have sufficient room too.

Humming Birdhill was a classy 30.28 winner here three runs back and on that occasion she showed impressive early speed. From the wide draw she is going to need a little bit of luck early and I think she should get it as the six is a keen railer and the pink is fairly slow early, so she should get every chance to muster speed into the first bend.

Lektra Spider has the good draw and she showed improvement with a 30.57 win here last time, the time wasn’t flashy but she will continue to get stronger with more racing.

Flash Zoe is another who will settle on the speed and she has won two of her five starts here, she will need to lead clearly to win but she does have the speed to cross and if they bunch up behind her she may just steal the prize.

Reiko Bale rounds out the chances, she can be very unreliable at times but she should get a nice cart across early and she did beat a smart type here two runs back.

Small field but fantastic lineup all the same. Star Recall is drawn to hold them out early and last week she set the track alight when scoring in an explosive 34.01. On that occasion she posted ridiculous early sectionals and if she can repeat that performance she should be able to set up a massive lead mid race and that should be enough to hold out Eliza Blanche.

Eliza Blanche has won three of four over this trip and she too can reel off explosive sectionals. The only worry with her is that she lacks mid race pace and that’s where Star Recall may get away from her mid race.

Cosmic Wise is another with a great record here and she should settle in the top three early, I dont think she is as fast as the inside two but if she crosses them early she can give a great sight.

Perfect Tess is in rare form and this is her toughest test to date, I dont think she can win tonight but a top three finish isn’t beyond her. There are some very talented types in this event but to me the one to beat two looks a good thing.

9RASHAD REASON (NSW)[5]Res.2377330.39(8)A Dailly (Anakie)

Dyna Nihilist is an absolute beast and he is drawn to make a big impact. Over the past two or three months he has probably been the most improved chaser in the country and in recent weeks he has scored some devastating wins, however his most impressive effort probably came last time out when placed at Sandown Park. On that occasion he was slow to begin and he gave them a fair head start but he charged home to be beaten by less than three lengths in blistering time. If he gets a clear passage early tonight he should blow them away and he will be running some serious time.

Dyna Fancy is ultra consistent and she beat a class lineup at Ballarat last time in a zippy 25.39, she has the speed to cross and she has been racing with a lot more strength in recent times.

Hot Whirl races well at this venue and she has broken 30 seconds here previously, she should get plenty of room in the early stages and if she can settle mid field she should be able to run home into a place.

Stompin’ has won six of eight to date and his past two wins at Ballarat have been sensational, if he can handle the track at his first look he will take a power of beating.

Keybow just keeps on winning and he appears to have a fair bit on this lot. Last time out he captured the Brisbane Cup final and he has shown great box manners in recent weeks. With the empty draw on his outside he should get room to show his customary early speed and he should settle outside Especially as they head into the first turn and as they head to the back straight he should go into overdrive. He is going to be extremely short but with an ounce of luck he should get the job done.

Mepunga Fearon is another who should be suited by the empty draw underneath and he can show smart early speed in his races. His recent form doesn’t look that flashy but he has been missing the kick, tonight he is coming off a two month break so he should be ready to fire fresh.

Blue Giant has enormous talent and he turned in a big performance when placed in the Ballarat Cup last time, he is going to need some room early but if he gets it he is more than capable of matching it with Keybow.

Especially is likely to set the pace and she is capable of holding on for a place, she is likely to get burnt off mid race.

High Class really caught the eye when winning here two runs back in 30.03 and she should be suited by the rise in distance. She is a better chaser when she can lead and dictate the terms, over this trip she shouldn’t have too much competition in the early stages and I would expect her to set up a nice lead mid race. She is likely to get a little tired in the run home but she should have enough in the tank to hold on.

Wind Whistler is armed with a monster finish and he too should be suited to this journey, I would much prefer him from a wider draw but he has the class edge and with an ounce of luck in the first 50m he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Classy Boy doesn’t win all that often but he is rarely far away, the box draw hasn’t done him many favours but he is very strong and he can run home into a place spot.

Soho Rhythm beat a classy lineup at Ballarat over 545m and if you look back through her form, her past three victories have come from wide draws.

Udon Bale has scored two top wins here of late and he appears drawn to get the gun run tonight. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does muster speed well and with King Surfa expected to lead he should be able to drive through at the first bend and settle on his back. He is very strong in the run home so if he can be within four lengths of King Surfa off the back he should prove too strong in the run home.

King Surfa will set a cracking pace and he recently scored an impressive 30.10 win here. He is clearly a genuine winning chance because he will lead them up, however in this class I’m a little concerned that he may get pressured a bit earlier in the race than normal.

Where’s The Surf is all class and he returned to form at Warragul recently with a brilliant 25.92 Warragul win, on that occasion he powered to the line and if he can settle in the top four tonight he may just prove too strong for his rivals.

Earl Bale is an improving type and he is the only other winning hope, this is a big rise in class but in time he will be able to match it with these type of rivals.

Kiss Me Ketut is slowly returning to his best form and he looks well placed in this event. If he can step cleanly he should get a nice cart across from Bogner Bale in the early stages and he should burn them off as they head into the first turn. He meets a good one in Are Jip tonight but I think he will be a long way in front of him early and he should get the job done.

Are Jip is a gun NSW speedster and he is getting ready for the Silver Chief, he has scored some explosive Wentworth Park wins to date but he is the type of chaser who needs to get out into some open space, if he can get some luck at the first bend he can make a big impact.

Jordan Allen should settle on the speed and he was a zippy 29.53 Sandown winner two runs back, his last 50m isn’t great but if he holds them out early he should be there at the end.

Lektra Brave is the only other chance, he showed improvement when placed here last week and he has great place prospects again.

Opus Bale continues to improve with more racing and he appears drawn to play a major role. Last time out he experienced a lot of bother in the run but he was still good enough to finish on strongly and snag third spot. From the red he should be able to settle in the top two early and he will be very strong in the run to the line.

Stylish Baroque could be the value in the event, she has the ability to ping away and cross them early and she is a different chaser when she lands on the bunny. Two starts back she was narrowly beaten at Sandown in good time and a similar effort here would see her feature at nice odds.

Black Illusion has a poor record over this trip but he does have a lot of talent, if he has a little luck in the early stages he should be able to run a good race.

Some highly promising chasers look set to do battle in this one and the exciting Droopy’s Bentley looks drawn to get all the breaks. Last time out he resumed from a short spell and he scored in devastating fashion at Shepparton in 25.13. He has won here in a slick 30.06 previously and he appears to have made a lot of improvement since that run, so if he gets across early the time he records could be very interesting.

Izzey Bale is well drawn nearer the inside and he was an impressive 30.11 winner here recently, he is going to need some luck in the first 50m but he is very strong so he will be charging home right at the end. Fleetwood Jay has won four on end with the latest being here in a solid 30.36. He would have derived a lot of benefit from that run and if he finds the early lead he is capable of getting down to around the 30.10 mark. Memphis Jookin’ is much better than his recent form reads and he could be the big improver.

Thunder Flame appears to be improving with every run and he appears drawn to get all the breaks. His box manners aren’t great but he does muster speed at a great rate and if he can avoid trouble in the first 50m he should make a big impact.

Bramwell Brown showed tremendous improvement when winning at Bendigo last time out in 28.04 and he hit the line in a commanding manner in that victory. He is having his first look here but if he can handle the first turn he should be there at the end.

Walt Bale turned in a big performance when placed here last week and he has won here previously in a slick 30.06, if he can step on terms with them he should have sufficient speed to settle in the top two.

Se’s High Above rounds out the chances, she is likely to settle back in the field but she will be steaming home at the end.

Volksjager Blue has been a little hard to follow recently but he did turn in a massive performance when placed here last week and I think he can go one better tonight. From box three he should be able to lob onto the rail soon after the start and then drive through at the first turn and therefore will be a lot closer to the speed as they hit the back straight. He proved last week that he has no trouble with the journey so with luck in running he can get the job done.

Sally Gardens scored a brilliant 39.10 heat win and she is likely to start a short priced favourite. From the red she should have the speed to lead and she will definitely give them something to catch.

Sisco Wake has won two of his past three starts and he should be in the mix for a long way, I dont think he can win but he must be included in your exotics.

Fine Diner has come up with the favourable draw and with a clean getaway he should be able to lead from go to whoa, three starts back he pinged the lids and won at Cranbourne in a dazzling 17.64 and a similar performance tonight would see him win with ease.

Jaraco is a hit or miss beginner but when she pings she is capable of running the hands off the clock. She has won three of seven here and she should be suited with the wide running Hurricane Ash drawn directly on her outside.

Dodgy Dealer has been a great sprinter for a long time now and he is still capable of matching it with this class, he should follow Dine Diner through early and a top three finish looks on the cards.

Ever To Be rounds out the chances, she was a handy winner here two runs back in similar class.
