Should be an interesting series and there are some well bred and well credentialed pups set to do battle, on the punting front it will be a tough night and it will pay to be wary of the market movers. In the first heat it’s hard to look past the red Kihael Kaluna, he has recorded blistering times in his two performance trials at Bathurst over 450m and if he can handle the extra 70m he will take a power of beating.

Dream Mender is a member of a very good litter and she has shown talent in her brief career to date, she possesses early speed and if she rolls to the early lead she will give them something to catch.

Miami Demon is another with early toe and he should be in the mix for a long way, his last 40m is a worry but he should give a nice sight.

It might also be worthwhile keeping an eye on the betting with the pink, she is well bred and her trial time at The Gardens wasn’t too bad.

Top Four: 1 – 6 – 3 – 8

There appears to be a few handy ones in this event and I’m going to give the edge to Kevro. He recently performance trialled around Richmond in a zippy 30.79 and if he can replicate that type of run he should give them something to catch.

Gunnadoo Rocker was smartly placed when on debut at Bathurst and prior to that he recorded smart times in two performance trials, from the red he should be able to hold a forward spot early and if he handles the first turn he will be in the finish.

Nit Noi has been placed in her four career starts and she is in good hands, the box draw is a concern but she should be able to run home into a place.

Remember Irene and Avondale As must also be respected, both have good trial form and Avondale As showed nice early speed in his trial win here.

Top Four: 3 – 1 – 7 – 6

Dear Darcy showed good speed in his trial placing at Bathurst and he only went down by two lengths in good time. The red draw is a big advantage tonight and if he holds them out early he may dash away and steal the prize mid race.

Speedy Mion trialled around Richmond in a very impressive 30.80 and if he can avoid early bother he will be right in the finish, he is in capable hands and he is bred to show smart early speed.

Tommy’s Terror has shown great early speed in his trials and he will give a nice sight, however he is likely to get tired in the run home, he is a must for your exotic bets.

Zambora Dynamo is an interesting runner, he commenced his career with two solid placings in Victoria but after a long layoff he produced a cracking Trial run at Richmond. He could be the one if there is a strong betting move.

Keep an eye out for Winsome Warrior if he gains a run, has tremendous talent and will fire if he starts

Shady Ace has been luckless in her brief career to date but she has shown a heap of potential. She was recently placed in a maiden final here and prior to that she beat Ritza Hattie in a trial at Bulli in 26.38. She can do things wrong at box rise but if she comes out she will take a power of beating.

Crankshaft is the likely leader and he will definitely give them something to catch. Last time out he showed slick early speed and it took the promising Unaffordable an eternity to reel him in. If Shady Ace happens to find bother I would expect him to take advantage and he will get away with the prize.

Breaking Mad recorded a speedy 30.15 in a trial here recently and he is in capable hands, if he can avoid early bother he should be able to make some type of impact.

It will also pay to keep an eye out for Kunamatata, he has brilliant trial form and he could feature if he gains a start.

10BLACK BEAR LEEXNBTRuth Matic

This heat is one of the stronger heats and it’s hard to separate a few of them. I’m giving the edge to Milldean Focus, he broke the 30 second barrier in a trial at Dapto and he followed that effort up with a slick 30.09 Nowra trial. The wide draw is a bit of a worry but he should be able to get across and into a commanding position.

Fantastic Blaze is in good hands and she also recorded a slick 30.09 trial effort at Nowra, she has shown a great turn of foot in her trials to date and she should come across with the seven early and settle in a prominent spot.

Fraudulent has turned in two handy trial efforts and he has enough speed to lead if he gets away cleanly, whilst Winsome Amanda could be the one to watch, she is in a very strong kennel and a member of a highly talented litter, she is resuming after two months and she should be primed for a bold showing.

Black Bear Lee will likely start favourite if he gains a start, he recently trialled here in 29.93, so be careful when investing if he gains a run.

Privacy trialled at Goulburn in November in a very impressive 25.77 and after a few months off he came back and trialled here in a more than handy 30.20. In his trial here he posted 5.51 to the first marker, if he can reproduce that type of effort that should be enough for him to get across and score.

Winsome Dora is a member of the powerful Finn kennel and she has shown smart early speed in her two trials, from the red she should settle in a prominent spot and she should make an impact.

Prince Gee at times has shown talent in his brief career and he appears suited in this event as it isn’t one of the stronger heats.

Crazy Nitro is another who is in good hands and it will be worth watching for any betting moves, he was soundly beaten on debut at Temora but it might pay to forgive that run.

Zipping Meg turned in an almighty performance when on debut at Shepparton in February and she gave every indication that the rise up to 500m will definitely be in her favour. She hasn’t boxed well to date but she does have a great turn of foot and she should put herself into contention as they go through the first turn.

Prince Omar is the obvious danger and he looks a lock for the quinella spot, he is a member of the powerful Mark Gatt kennel and he caught the eye with a sizzling 29.86 trial win here last week. They appear to be the only two chances, however Stolen Kisses appears to have a fair bit of pace and she could run a cheeky race at odds.

Reichenbach had recorded some very fast trial wins at Bulli prior to his two race defeats and I’m expecting him to turn in a great effort tonight. He is armed with good early speed and there doesn’t appear to be a lot of depth in this event so he should get all the breaks.

Sanbona has shown good signs in her two trials to date and she should settle in the top two of three early, she only went 30.53 when winning her trial but I would expect her to improve on that run and a small improvement would see her fight out the finish.

Good Odds Rick has the good draw and he has been placed in four of his five starts to date, from the red he should be thereabouts for the entire trip.

Aqua Phoenix has come up with the good draw and she posted impressive sectionals when winning a trial here a couple of weeks ago. She should have no trouble leading tonight and there doesn’t appear to be anything with a huge amount of talent in this race.

Queen Audrey should match motors with the red for most of the journey and she will be more than competitive, if you reversed the draws she would probably be my top pick.

Wallan Baby posted a very quick 22.67 in a trial at The Gardens in February and if she can handle the rise in distance she should take home some prize money.

Thor’s Devil rounds out the chances, she has trialled well here and at Dubbo and both of those trials were over this distance range.

Takahi George showed a great turn of foot when placed at Dapto when on debut and if he can step cleanly he should lead for a long way again. This isn’t an overly strong heat so if you can get around $2.50 or better that could be value.

Emerley Ice is an SA chaser and she trialled very quickly at Gawler in February, she has been a little wayward in her three race starts but she does appear to have a fair bit of talent.

Printer’s Ink had very little luck when on debut at Sandown and he was fairly well supported in that event, if he can begin a little better tonight he should be able to make his presence felt at the finish.

Once again if Black Bear Lee gains a start he will be short odds and most likely score.

Down Every Road is in good hands and he is a member of a highly talented litter. He recently trialled around Bulli and posted a sizzling 26.36 and if he can avoid early bother tonight he should get every chance to lead throughout and I would expect him to post impressive sectionals.

Scramble is armed with early speed and he was solidly placed here two runs back, he isn’t overly strong but his fitness will get better with more racing and he should run a cheeky race here.

Paua Shot led for a long way when placed at Ipswich on debut and he should be in the mix throughout again tonight.

Lord Golec rounds out the chances, he trialled well at Bulli in early February and he appears to have a fair bit of early toe.
