Cosmic Illusion is well placed in the pink draw and she was a tad unlucky here last week. She is normally a very reliable beginner and three placings on the trot she is overdue to break through. There is a bit of speed drawn in the middle and they should carve up the inside division and that should allow her to get the fly early.

Kalden Legenda can ping the lids and he has a heap of talent, if he gets away cleanly tonight he should sit just behind Cosmic Illusion and fill the quinella spot.

Kalden Kapone scored a devastating 22.12 win here last week and a repeat of that will see him go close again, the concern tonight is that there is a fair bit of speed around him and he will need a few things to go his way early.

Top Four: 8 – 3 – 4 – 7

Dakota La Flash is likely to start short odds but it’s worthwhile anchoring her up front in your exotics and taking the all up with Cosmic Illusion. Last time out she gapped a handy field when scoring here in 22.25 and she is better suited to this distance range. Rockin’ Loot is the only one who will challenge her early but she should put pay to her as they head for the back straight.

Emerley Occa is suitably drawn in the pink and he was solidly placed here two runs back, he can’t win the race but he can sneak into a placing.

Rockin’ Loot as stated earlier, should settle near the speed and he is a great place prospect, he was solidly placed here over this trip last time and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

Top Four: 7 – 4 – 8 – 1

Trifecta: 7/1,4,8/1,4,8 ($3 for 100%)

Trifecta: 7/1,4,8/Field ($18 for 100%)
