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.

Top Four: 3 – 1 – 7 – 6

8MELODY SERENADE564330.00Lyndall Massey

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.

8WINGED ELITE353530.02John Hutchinson

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.
