Race 1 – 600M Maiden Final – 7:14PM

Tough race to open the night but I think the early speed Julie Bale showed in her heat gives her the edge. After a clean getaway she posted a 9.06 first section and from there on she never looked back. Her mother is the former champion stayer Amity Bale and she showed last week that the extra trip was not an issue and in time she will probably relish the 700m trip.

Bekim Rose was produced the most eye catching run of the heats, for most of the trip she was posted wide and never really given a chance to balance up until with 150m to go. After finding a heap of bother she still managed to hit the line first and the time was a more than respectable 34.96.

Top Four: 5 – 1 – 4 – 6

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 1,5/1,5/Field ($12 for 100%)

Trifecta: 5/1/Field ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 5/1,4,6/Field ($18 for 100%)

Race 2 – 525M Grade 5 – 7:37PM

Tic Tac Thomas doesn’t have the flashiest form but this is a fairly weak event and if he can begin cleanly he should be able to punch through at the first bend. In recent times he has been finding bother soon after box rise and his confidence has been shattered, in the past he has won here in 30.13 and a repeat of that will see him get the cash.

Moot Point is the run on dog in the event, he is likely to miss the kick and move to the fence soon after box rise. With that being the case he should be able to drive through and find himself in a prominent spot as they head for the back straight. Bayman Bale and Cobra Bale are the two class dogs in the event but both appear to be racing a tad below their best at present. Obviously if they happen to ping and get some open space in the first 50m they can figure in the finish.

Top Four: 1 – 3 – 6 – 7

Suggested Bets: Win bets on Tic Tac Thomas and Moot Point

Boxed Quinella: 1,3,6 ($3 for 100%)

Trifecta: 1,3/1,3,6,7/1,3,5,6,7,8 ($24 for 100%)

Race 3 – 525M Grade 5 – 8:00PM

Hurricane Rhino didn’t have a lot of luck in his debut here last week but prior to that he showed his true ability with a top win at Wentworth Park in 29.95. On the occasion he showed a tremendous turn of foot soon after box rise and he really dominated his rivals, tonight he has a slow begin drawn outside he should get every chance to muster and he can repeat his Wentworth Park performance.

Lektra Brave is surprisingly not that badly drawn in box six and he looked ultra impressive when winning at Sandown Park in a slick 29.52 last week. He is very hit or miss at box rise and you will know your fate with him in the first 20m. Velocemente and Liara Allen could be the surprise packets in the event, both have been racing without luck and both have tremendous ability when on song.

Top Four: 3 – 6 – 4 – 5

Suggested Bets: Win bet on Hurricane Rhino

Boxed Quinella: 3,4,5,6 ($6 for 100%)

Trifecta: 3,6/3,4,5,6/2,3,4,5,6,8 ($24 for 100%)

Race 4 – 600M Mixed 4/5 – 8:20PM

The classy Easton Bale looks well placed in this company and with a clean getaway he should be able to make every post a winner. In recent times he has been facing much stronger chasers and he has been gobbled up in the closing stages. Tonight I’m tipping him to be running 34.50 on the bunny and that will be enough to get the cash.

Kayo Marciarno doesn’t win a lot of races but he is rarely far away. He is going to get a long way back initially but he does storm home late and he is a great dog to anchor for second and third in the exotics. Eraptor has won two of three here and he has a solid 34.58 PB, so if he can get across early he should find himself in the mix. Dyna Werribee must also be kept safe, from the red he should settle fairly close to the speed and he is better than his form reads.

Top Four: 4 – 6 – 7 – 1

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 4/1,6,7/Field ($18 for 100%)

Quinella: 4 to rove with 1,6,7 ($3 for 100%)

Trifecta: 1,4,7/6/Field ($18 for 100%)

Trifecta: 1,4,7/Field/6 ($18 for 100%)

Race 5 – 525M Mixed 3/4 – 8:38PM

Very open affair but I think with all the pace drawn out wide it might play in Ride The Rails favour. Normally a reliable beginner, he should be able to follow his kennelmate across in the early stages and he should be able to put a space in them off the back straight. He has previously won here in a smart 29.92 and he can show dazzling speed when on the bunny.

Allen Eryk is a gun chaser and he scored a super impressive 29.43 Sandown win in late May, the only concern with him is that he can take 30 or 40m to hit his stride, however with slow beginners either side he should get enough room in the early stages. Hawk Alone is ideally drawn and rarely far away in this company, whilst Fort Allen will settle on the speed and he should be in the mix for a long way.

Top Four: 8 – 4 – 1 – 6

Suggested Bets: Win bet on Ride The Rails

Trifecta: 1,4,8/1,4,8/1,3,4,5,6,8 ($24 for 100%)

Quinella: 8 to rove with 1,4,6 ($3 for 100%)

Race 6 – 525M Grade 5 Final – 8:57PM

Last week Duchess Bale pinged the lids and hit the first marker in a best of the night 5.05 and she maintained that high speed with a fastest heat win in 29.95. She should have no trouble finding the lead again tonight and it will be hard to see her being reeled in.

My Boy Snoop was having his first look here last week and he will have derived a lot of benefit from that run. He is normally slow to begin in his races but I think as they head through the first bend tonight he should find himself sitting in third or fourth spot and that should be close enough to threaten the leader.

Top Four: 2 – 3 – 5 – 1

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 2,3/2,3/Field ($12 for 100%)

Trifecta: 2/1,3,5/Field ($18 for 100%)

Boxed Quinella: 2,3,5 ($3 for 100%)

Race 7 – 725M Mixed 4/5 – 9:20PM

Tough race but I think we can find some value with the out of form Hala Belle. In late April she showed her true ability with a sizzling 41.82 Sandown Park win, since then he she been finding bother soon after box rise and has never been a chance in those races. Outside of Allen Deed there isn’t a lot of early speed in this event, so she should get every chance to settle in the top two.

Heaps Of Ability is perfectly drawn out wide and he has been racing in brilliant fashion Two starts ago he came from well back to score at Ballarat in 38.04 and on that occasion he beat a quality line up. Luna Jinx has enormous talent but she can make a lot of mistakes in her races. She is likely to be short and I think she is worth risking. Allen Deed should lead for a long way but I’m not convinced that he is a true stayer at the moment.

Top Four: 5 – 7 – 4 – 3

Suggested Bets: Win bet on Hala Belle

Boxed Quinella: 3,4,5,7 ($6 for 100%)

Race 8 – 525M Free For All – 9:40PM

Kiss Me Ketut is a class act when on song and he has been freshened up with a month off. Normally a reliable beginner, I’m anticipating that he will have more than enough speed to cross and if he can reproduce his 29.77 PB here he will prove very hard to gun down.

Buckle Up Mason has won three of his past four in brilliant fashion and he should be able to come across in the early stages with Kiss Me Ketut. I think Ketut will burn him off mid race but there won’t be a lot separating them at the line. Dream It is an enormous talent but he can be slow to begin at times, with a clear run initially he can definitely threaten.

Top Four: 6 – 5 – 3 – 2

Suggested Bets: Win bet on Kiss Me Ketut

Trifecta: 5,6/3,5,6/Field ($24 for 100%)

Race 9 – 525M Mixed 4/5 – 10:05PM

Rumbling Rick was a tad disappointing here last week but from the pink he should get every chance to cross tonight and I think he will be running time on the bunny. Outside of Pappa Galo there is not a lot of early speed and therefore he should be able to get a cheap lead. If you can get $3 or better that is great over’s.

Oakvale Flyer is all class and she has been racing in brilliant style of late. Two starts ago she showed sizzling mid race speed when scoring at Sandown in 29.48, a repeat of that will see her be in the finish tonight. Pappa Galo is drawn to settle in the first two and he must be included in your exotic bets.

Top Four: 8 – 4 – 1 – 2

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 8/1,2,4/1,2,3,4,6,7 ($15 for 100%)

Exacta: 8/1,2,4 ($3 for 100%)

Race 10 – 600M Grade 5 – 10:25PM

Shall She Rock has been racing without luck here over 525m in recent times and she really should appreciate the step up to 600m. She has been placed in three of her past four and on each occasion she has found bother in the early stages and then ripped home late. Looking at her race pattern and last 50m over the short journey, it looks like the extra journey shouldn’t pose too many problems.

Fearless Bert is the obvious danger, he is a gun chaser when on song and when given room in the first 50m he can show explosive pace. He has won over this journey previously but the only concern is that he likes to scout wide, so he will need a heap of luck as they head into the first bend. Zipping Casper appears to be the only other winning prospect. He is suitably drawn out wide and like Shall She Rock, his 500m form and sectionals indicate that this trip should suit.

Top Four: 5 – 3 – 8 – 4

Suggested Bet: Win bet on Shall She Rock

Race 11 – 525M Grade 5 – 10:42PM

Footluce Diva can be a little hard to follow at times but from the pink box tonight she should get every chance to show her best. Three starts ago she exploded from the traps and led throughout at Sandown Park. On that occasion she posted ridiculously fast splits and eventually stopped the clock in a sizzling 29.50.

Elite Devil was far from disgraced when placed here last week and he has early speed to burn. I would expect him to settle in the first two at the first bend and he should be in contention throughout. He’s Buzzin’ has loads of ability and he just needs luck at the first turn to make an impact.

Top Four: 8 – 4 – 1 – 2

Suggested Bets:

Trifecta: 8/1,2,4/Field ($18 for 100%)

Quinella: 8 to rove with 1,2,4 ($3 for 100%)

Race 12 – 525M Grade 5 – 11:00PM

Miss Kia Ora has found an extra gear of late and if she can reproduce her effort which saw her win here on Wednesday, she will prove very hard to hold out. In that effort she had to overcome some early difficulties and she then managed to hit the line in style and prior to that she smashed a field at Shepparton in 25.37.

Kerrigan Bale is a highly promising speedster who has won two of four starts to date with the latest win being at Sandown in a blistering 29.48. She has proven to be very hit or miss at box rise but when she hits she is brilliant. Shoulders is a classy NSW speedster and he didn’t have a lot of luck here last week, with a clean beginning he can make amends tonight.

Top Four: 5 – 3 – 6 – 1

Suggested Bet: Win bet on Miss Kia Ora
