Race 4 – 425M GRV VBIS Maiden Final – 8:10PM

Eight highly promising speedsters are set to do battle and I think the outside division will dominate the race. I found it very hard to split Kuranda Lass and We’re Off Here, both are unbeaten in there two starts and both ran similar sectionals in qualifying. I have given the edge to We’re Off Here. In the second round of qualifying he exited box six and put on a faultless display and from a similar box tonight I think he can repeat the dose. In his brief career he has shown brilliant box manners and in both rounds of heats he reeled off the fastest second split. With a clean getaway tonight he should be able to burn across and get the job done again.

Kuranda Lass as mentioned earlier ran very similar splits to the top pick and she too has proven to be a very reliable beginner. My only concern tonight is the box draw because in previous weeks she has had the luxury of exiting the pink and the red respectively and that has allowed her to get a clear run in the initial stages. Tonight she has likely favourite Senor Grumpy and our top pick We’re Off Here drawn on her outside and they are both fast early and keen for the rails. If she can get a clear run in the first 30m she should be able to make her presence felt. Senor Grumpy showed explosive speed when scoring a 23.76 heat win a fortnight ago and he obviously must be respected, however his box manners aren’t as good as the other two and he will need to do everything right early.

Top Four: 7 – 5 – 6 – 1

Race 6 – 660M Winter Cup Final – 8:47PM

Really tough race to assess but I think the classy Unix Bale should get the cash. She was unlucky in her heat and has drawn poorly again tonight, but last week was her first try at the 660m trip and I think she will be much better for the run. In her heat she was steady to begin and from there on she was always going to find it difficult to feature, however in previous starts she has proven to be a reliable beginner so if she can get away on terms tonight she will find herself in a much more prominent position initially. If you go back through her form, you will see that she did score at The Meadows in a slick 34.40 in May and I don’t think her rivals tonight are quite up to that standard.

Gambo Girl ended a string of luckless efforts when scoring here last week and she is drawn to feature again. With Loud One and Echelonic Action both expected to show speed, she should get the perfect sit on the leaders and based on last week’s run home time, she will prove very hard to hold out. The only concern with her is that she can find a lot of trouble in her races, so if you put your hard earned on, you will be hoping for a little luck in running. Zipping Maggie and Tyra Giselle are both expected to be well fancied but I think they are a little risky from their wide draws. There appears to be an abundance of early pace in this event and it is likely that they will be posted wide for most of the trip. If you are looking for a value place bet, Dewana Sienna could be the one. She doesn’t like to win races but she is rarely far away in this company, she will be huge odds but is more than capable of running a drum.

Top Four: 6 – 2 – 1 – 4

Race 7 – 425M Group Two Bendigo Cup Final – 9:10PM

There were quite a number of surprises in last week’s heats and it has made tonight’s final a wide open affair. Pippa Shiraz and Senor Socks both have fared well with the box draw, however I think the biggest improver from the heats will be the exciting Luca Neveelk who is aiming to win 11 races on the trot. Last week he was only fair to begin and went to the first marker in just a solid 6.60 and at his best I believe he can go around the 6.50 mark which would be enough to lead this field. Obviously this is his toughest test to date, but the times he has recorded on the provincial circuit in his brief career suggest that he has the quality to win an event like this. With the speedy White Spyro drawn directly outside him, the first 50m is very crucial but I believe he should have sufficient speed to hold her out. You should be able to get around the $4.50 or better and that is great value about a chaser who has won 10 on end.

White Spyro looks to be the danger for mine, she is the only runner in the field who has more speed than Luca Neveelk and her winning time of 23.79 last week was super impressive. She would obviously need to cross and lead to win but if Luca Neveelk happens to miss the kick, then she should be able to cross easily. She will go around at double figures and she may be worth a saver bet. Senor Socks is another exciting chaser who continues to impress, after a slow get away in his heat, he showed a tremendous turn of foot and he soon found himself in front. Obviously he can’t afford to miss the kick tonight but from the pink he will get every chance to feature. Warrior King is another who must be respected, he has the field covered in the class and ability department but his poor box manners have continued to cause him trouble. He is armed with a monster finish and if there is any shuffling up front, expect him to be running over the top of them late.

Top Four: 4 – 5 – 7 – 8

Race 8 – 425M Free For All – 9:28PM

The last leg of the quaddie sees three speedsters do battle. I expect Matt’s Entity, Ferly Reign and the up and coming Universal Size all to be vying for the early lead and the pressure up front will be intense. Based on last week’s sectionals I think Matt’s Entity should be the one who wins the speed battle and if he does that should see him snag the prize. He was a tad disappointing in his cup heat as he appeared to stop quickly in the straight, however he has won four of seven over this journey and he does have a breathtaking 23.57 PB to his credit. He meets a quality line-up here so you might be able to get around the $2.80 mark which is good shopping.

Ferly Reign has been a class act for quite a while now and her 26.50 Bulli win in May suggests that she still has plenty to give. Surprisingly she was made a reserve in lasts week’s heats and unfortunately she didn’t gain a run which means it has been three weeks since her last race, so she should be nice and fresh for this. Universal Size is going to be well supported and he has shown that he is going to be a great short course speedster in the future, however I don’t think he is quite up to Matt’s Entity at present and from the pink draw he may find himself posted wide for most of the trip. Tyronimo and Leesa Benz are two chasers which must be included in your exotic bets, Tyronimo will be steaming home late, whilst Leesa Benz has a great turn of foot from the 30m to the 200m mark and that should allow her to be in contention for most of the trip.

Top Four: 3 – 2 – 1 – 7

Unleash on Matt’s Entity
