Indiana Rumble is a great beginner and with slow beginners on either side she should get every chance to drive through into a prominent spot at the first turn. Two starts back she posted a slick 30.65 Ipswich win and she has posted a more than handy 30.22 here previously, if she can find the early lead she will take some running down.

Killara is a strong chaser and she turned in a big effort when placed here two runs back. Once again she hasn’t drawn too well but if she can avoid early bother and settle mid field she should be there at the end.

Wildash Warrior is a good beginner and he should give a great sight, the last 40-metres is a struggle for him but he should be able to hold on for some minor money.

Femme Jolie rounds out the hopes, she was a solid 30.26 winner from this draw last time and a repeat performance will see her figure prominently.

Midnight Moments comes here after scoring an impressive debut win at Bathurst and she has recently joined the powerful Tony Brett kennel. Her debut win came from this draw and if she can step away on terms she should be able to get across and settle in a commanding position.

Abby’s Magic can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting her talent and from the inside she should get every chance to display her ability. If she can step evenly she should have the speed to settle in the top three and she is quite strong in the run home.

Lady Abigail continues to impress and she only needs a clear run early to feature, I would prefer her from a wider draw but she is too good to dismiss.

Mpingo must also be respected, he is suited to the wide draw and he has been racing in solid fashion of late.

Elusive Desire is all class and he is drawn to get all the breaks early, he is normally a solid beginner and he musters speed quite well. With a keen railer and fast beginner directly underneath he should get every chance to carve across and settle in the top three. He has a great record here and he will be very powerful in the run to the line.

Queenies Best is the likely pace setter and she should give a bold showing, she is likely to struggle in the final 40-metres but if she gets away mid race she could pinch the event.

Dynamite Speed hasn’t had much luck in her most recent efforts but she is much better than that and I’m expecting an improved showing. There isn’t a whole lot of speed around her so she should be afforded a fairly clear passage early on.

Velocity Shirl can be a little hard to follow at times but she does have ability and she will be steaming home late, the only concern with her is that she doesn’t like to be crowded in her races.

Pop The Cork is an exciting prospect and he should be winning quite easily. Last time out he gave the track record a solid nudge when posting a breathtaking 29.58. He will be unbackable odds so I suggest you just anchor him up front in your exotic bets.

Full Of Attitude should sit outside the red or just behind it in the early stages and she should hang in for a long way. Her last 50-metres isn’t very strong so I dont think she can win but the quinella spot does look likely.

Fast Bean must be kept safe in a race like this, he doesn’t have the speed to lead but he should sit just behind them and he will be hitting the line solidly.

Place chances must also be given to Cheeky Chance and Spanish Queen, both can show speed on there night and they are more than capable.

Fabulous Storm hasn’t had much luck at his past couple but prior to that he did post a sizzling 29.80 when winning here in April. On that occasion he beat the exciting Opus Forte and he won in commanding style. With a clear passage in the first 30 or 40-metres he should get every chance to get the cash.

Cervelo has the speed to find the early lead and he should give a cheeky sight on the lure. He has been run down in two of his past three but they were in strong company and I’m expecting a stronger showing tonight.

General Cloud has been placed in five of six over this journey and he is bursting to break through. His lack of early speed is a concern but if he can settle in the first half of the field that should be close enough for him to hit the scoreboard.

No Callaratah is going to be well fancied and he has a great chance, he steps up in class after a top win here last time in 30 flat but he should turn in a competitive effort.

Good race and there appears to be a few chances, however I think if the eight does everything right early he should be winning. He had been struggling for a little while but last week he returned to his best with a blistering 24.91 Ipswich win. He should get a nice cart across in the early stages and he will be strong in the run to the line.

Cyndie’s Magic is very hard to follow but she bounced back to her best with a strong 30.29 win here on a wet track, the box draw doesn’t help tonight but she does muster speed well and she does have good track sense.

Don’t Go Quietly was beaten by a good one in a heat of the Rockhampton Cup and he returns to his favourite track tonight. If he can step on terms he should put himself into contention at the first corner.

Pocahontas rounds out the chances, she is a reliable beginner and she is very honest, if she finds the early lead she may give them something to catch.

Stella Nights has come up with the good draw and if she steps well she should be able to settle in a forward spot and she will be very strong in the run home. This race isn’t overly strong and she has won here previously in a slick 35.02, if she turns in a similar effort she will definitely prove hard to hold out.

Kidatee Croc is a classy middle distance chaser when on song and he should have enough speed to cross early. He is a little off his game at present but if he does find the lure he should be able to regain some confidence.

Oxley Rubey is a fast chaser on her night and from the red she may be able to begin a little better than normal. She powered to the line in her brilliant 30.67 Ipswich win last time and she has won here previously in very good time.

Knave rounds out the serious chances, he has a great record over this journey and he just needs some luck early to feature.

Rose Of Galo has now had five runs since a spell and she is due for a chance of luck. She has shown good speed in most of those runs and two starts back she showed a little more strength when hanging on well in the home straight. On that occasion it took Iva Vision a long time to reel her in, if she can reproduce that type of effort she will definitely make an impact.

Hougenie is poorly drawn but she is flying at present and if she can balance up in the top three she will be right in the finish. She definitely has the talent to win, I’m just a little worried about the speed drawn on her outside.

Late Angel Lee is ideally placed in the pink draw and he is the current track record holder here, he is a little hit or miss early but he does have the ability to lead or come from off the speed to win.

8HOPE’S FANTASY365230.08William Elson

Frosty Jay Jay returned to his brilliant best here last week with a top 30.20 win and with an ounce of luck early he should go back to back. He has a keen railer drawn directly underneath so he should get a nice cart across early and this race doesn’t have a lot of depth, so if he balances up near the lead he should be winning.

Miner’s Moss has the speed to lead and he loves racing here, he is normally a reliable beginner and he should have enough early toe to cross the inside division.

Marlisa is better than her recent form reads and she should be in the mix for a long way, if she can repeat the effort which saw her place here two runs back she could salute at nice odds.

Coin Of Phrase has been placed in his past four here and he shouldn’t be too far away again. He should settle in the top three and this is the weakest assignment he has faced in quite a while.

Yada Yada Yada is a faultless beginner and he should have the speed to lead from go to whoa. Four starts back he managed to post an impressive 29.97 when winning here and with a repeat of that he should be getting the cash.

Spookie’s Gift can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting his ability, if he can step away cleanly he should settle in a prominent spot and I would expect him to be there at the end.

Skuzi is racing in great form at present with a lack of speed on his outside he must be respected, I would prefer him at Ipswich but he did win well here two runs back.

Seven Straight is the interesting runner, he is resuming from a long spell but he has a heap of talent when on song and he should sprint well fresh
