Very open race and I think we can find some value with the well drawn Run Right Back. She has raced well from this draw and she should be ready to fire fresh after having six weeks off. Prior to going for a short spell she had turned in some super efforts when placed at Sandown Park and she appears to be better suited to this journey.

Silver Rockstar was narrowly beaten in slick time at Ballarat last time and if he turns in a similar effort tonight he appears to be the main danger, he doesn’t have great box manners but he does have a great turn of foot and that will allow him to put himself into contention early.

Peregon Flyer rounds out the winning chances, he is poorly drawn but he does possess good speed and with a keen railer drawn in the four he should get a clear run early.

Top Four: 8 – 6 – 5 – 7

Max Moon has won two of his past five and he has been runner up in the other three efforts. On each occasion he has shown smart early speed and if he can reproduce that speed tonight he should be able to get a cheap lead and he will then prove hard to gun down.

Francesco has recorded two solid Horsham placings of late and he could run a nice race at odds tonight, he doesn’t win very often but he hits the line well and he is rarely far away.

Aston Dima should get a nice cart across from Max Moon in the early stages and he should figure prominently for most of the trip, last time out he had no luck over this journey and I’m expecting an improved performance.

Hold On Beau is better than his form reads and he has raced well here in the past, if he goes around at silly odds he could be worth a saver bet.

Top Four: 6 – 2 – 7 – 5

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Max Moon with Sportingbet

Exacta: 2,6/2,5,6,7 ($6 for 100%)

Quinella: 6 to rove with 2,5,7 ($3 for 100%)

Trifecta: 6/2,5,7/Field ($18 for 100%)
