8ZAFONIC HAZE211122.81Donald Turner

I know we have to wait until the last race on the card but i’m fairly keen on Habana Flex. Her form of late isn’t that crash hot but she has been racing over unsuitable distances and in much stronger class. From the red draw she should be able to drive through soon after boxrise and assume control. She is a very fast chaser when on the bunny and i think you should be able to snag $4.00 or better.

Her main competition will come from the two outside draws in Nathaniel Bale and Zafonic Haze. Nathaniel Bale is capable of pinging the lids and he likes to scout wide in his races, I don’t think he can cross the red so the quinella spot looks best. Zafonic Haze is highly promising and he is aiming for four in a row. He is just as talented as the one and seven but it’s likely that he will be posted wide for most of the trip. I think you should unleash on the red and take exotic bets with the three mentioned to fill the top two spots.

Top Four: 1 – 7 – 8 – 4

He Went Off has been racing has been racing in strong company of late and i think he can return to the winners list at nice odds tonight. He has had two tries over this track and trip and he has been placed in both attempts. He finds himself in a race which lacks genuine early speed and he should get every chance to lead throughout.

The main dangers appear to be the in form Dyna Fatbob and Triggsy. Dyna Fatbob is an up and comer and he has scored some more than handy grade 5 wins of late. Triggsy has failed to reproduce his brilliant NSW form in recent months but he is in good hands and he may show some improvement.

Top Four: 7 – 2 – 8 – 4
