Good race to kick off the night and I think the improving Dyna Tiber can get the job done. He is a full brother to the exciting Dyna Double One and he appears to be getting better with every run. In late December he scored two powerful Meadows wins over 525m and he then followed those efforts up with a slick 25.38 Warrnambool win. He has slow beginners drawn either side tonight so he should get every chance to salute.

Repayments is in good hands and he scored a commanding 23.89 Bendigo win last time out. He was a strong debut winner at The Meadows in 30.35 when coming from midfield and since then he has showed that he has a dazzling turn of foot and a clean getaway would see him settle in the top two early.

Lektra Utopia has the good draw and if he can reproduce the form which saw him win at Sale in 24.83 he should feature.

Quarterback is the interesting runner, he is still learning to race but he has scored three slick wins on the country circuit in his brief career to date.

Another good race and I think he kennelmates drawn out wide should control the race. Dyna Vikkers is still learning but since his debut win he has come really come along. Last time out he didn’t have much luck in a heat of the Paws Of Thunder but at his start prior he scored in devastating fashion at the Meadows in a slick 30.04. His box manners aren’t great but if he gets room to muster he should put himself into contention at the first turn.

Ikaku Bale is another with a heap of potential and he probably has more genuine early speed than the pink. With a keen railer drawn underneath he should get a nice cart across as they head into the first bend and he should be able to settle in the top three as they head through the turn.

High Class was a strong 29.47 winner here two runs back and if she gets away cleanly she will prove hard to reel in, she also scored over 600m recently so she will be strong in the run home.

9BLACK CHASE (QLD)[5]Res.56535NBTJ Gill (Darriman)

Shanlyn Patch has shown a return to form in recent weeks and if he can step cleanly from the pink draw he should make an impact. Two starts back he posted a strong 34.31 win here from a wide draw and on that occasion he showed plenty of early speed. If he gets across he should break away mid race and he will prove hard to reel in.

Lektra Hawk is looking for this distance range and he should be able to settle a lot closer to the speed than normal. Last time out he turned in a big performance when placed behind Marcus Joe at the Meadows, so he should appreciate the drop in class tonight.

Mepunga Treasure has a big engine but her record of three wins and no placings from ten starts indicates that she relies heavily on luck, from the four she will need everything to go her way but if she happens to land in a prominent position early she will prove very hard to hold out.

10BIG BANG MARJEN [5]Res.45142NBTD Jensen (Bangholme)

Eyeful Of Bling has a big engine and he overcame a lot of difficulties to score here last week in 29.91. The time wasn’t flashy but the manner in which he won was very impressive, four starts back he ran the hands off the clock when winning at Sale and if given a clear run tonight he will be running some serious time.

Sam Harper has found a leg in recent weeks and from the red he should give them something to catch. Last week he posted a brilliant 18.73 off the back and if he repeats that he is going to be right in the mix as they turn for home.

Angel Of Music has been placed in four of five over this trip and she will go with the red for the first 300m so she must be included in your exotic bets.

Feel The Wrath could be the value in the event, he is drawn to get a nice sit in the early stages and he is very strong in the run to the line.

Mepunga Ranger has scored two huge wins at Warrnambool in recent weeks and with a clean getaway tonight he will take a power of beating at nice odds. He has won here previously on two occasions but the only concern with him is that he can bomb the start at times. The six should give him a nice cart across early and that should allow him to settle in a prominent position.

Deadly Vane is expected to start a short price favourite and if he pings away he should make light work of this lineup. He is blessed with dazzling speed but the only concern is that Where’s The Surf will be looking for the fence early and he might crunch him soon after the start.

Morningside doesn’t win very often but she is rarely far away, she recently trialled well at Ballarat and she is a must for the exotics.

8PRINCESS PASS [5]34222NBTJ Sharp (Lara)

Opec Bale continues to impress and its hard to tip against him after he posted a devastating 42.45 Meadows win last time out. I dont expect him to lead tonight but he should settle in the first half and he should then go into overdrive mid race. This is a pretty weak lineup and he has slow beginners drawn on either side so he appears to have everything going for him tonight.

Mepunga Tiara is much better than her recent form reads and she showed a return to form with a strong placing here last week over 595m. With a clean getaway I can see her leading and she should give a great sight on the bunny.

Time Dimension is looking for this distance range and he is a must for the exotics. He is the type of chaser who will refuse to go past the leader so he could be a great prospect to anchor for second and third in exotic bets.

Go Jetta Go rounds out the chances, he is in good hands and he will be charging home.

9BLACK CHASE (QLD)[5]Res.56535NBTJ Gill (Darriman)

Quasi Bale is an exciting staying prospect and he set the track alight when winning here last week in 33.89. With a wide runner drawn on his outside he should get a clear passage early and if he settles in the top three he should get the cash.

Texas Titan his the line well when scoring here last week in 34.48 and if given room in the early stages he should be in the mix again.

Cornelius Fudge has found his best form in recent weeks and although he is poorly drawn tonight he still must be considered, he has a great record at this venue and he only needs an ounce of luck as they head through the first bend.

Coulta Rock should be suited by the drop back in distance, he has won here previously in a slick 34.22 and with the lack of speed in this race he should get every chance to settle in a forward position.

Marcus Joe is well placed in the pink and he looked super impressive when scoring at The Meadows in 29.99 from this draw. There doesn’t appear to be a lot of early speed in this event so with a clean getaway he should be able to cross and assume control as they head for the back straight.

My Bro Fabio returns from injury and he should be primed for a bold first up showing, my concern with him is that he might show a bit more early speed fresh and that might see him get strung up in traffic at the first turn, however he is a beast and he still must be respected.

Dream It had little luck when resuming from a spell at Bendigo and he should turn in an improved performance, he has a sizzling 29.23 PB here and I can see him easily settling in the top three as they head through the first turn.

Peloton Bale rounds out the chances, he doesn’t win very often these days but he is very strong and he can run home into a place.

Footluce Diva has raced extremely well since return from SA and she is perfectly placed in the pink draw. With a clean getaway she should be able to settle in the top three early and she can then go into overdrive mid race.

Money Come Back should match motors with Scenic Shot in the early stages and he should give a great sight, the last 60m is a worry but he should have a nice lead as they pass the back straight.

Scenic Shot struggles to run out the trip but he is armed with brilliant early speed and he must be included in your exotic bets.

Tekki Minx could be the value, she has been placed in seven of her past eight starts with five of those efforts being over this track and trip.

The well graded Weblec Bells is ideally placed in the pink draw and she will take a power of beating. She has won five of 11 over this trip and with some speedy beginners drawn underneath she should get a nice cart across in the early stages. She is going to be fairly short but this really does look to be her race, it may be best to anchor her up front in your exotics.

Frank Furter should pounce on the early lead and he should give a great sight, he was very unlucky here last week and if he does find the bunny he will give the favourite something to catch.

Dyna Glinda has the good draw and she should get a nice sit in the early stages, she isn’t the most reliable chaser but from the red she must be respected.

Soho Rhythm loves racing here and she can show early speed, if she happens to hold them out she will prove very hard to reel in.

Great race and I think the exciting Izzey Bale can figure prominently. Two starts back he set the Warrnambool track alight with a dazzling 25.11 win and prior to that he went sub 30 seconds at the Meadows. If he can step cleanly tonight he should be able to hold them out at the first bend and he will be running some serious time on the lure.

Grand Intention has won five of six to date and the past three wins have been in blistering times, the box draw won’t help but he is armed with a devastating turn of foot and he only needs a little room in the first 50m to be able to put himself into contention.

Smith And Wesson has now had four runs since a spell and he should be ready to fire, he has enough speed to settle in a prominent position and he could be the value in the event.

Alexis Kelton has a great record here over 595m and she will be charging home at the end.

Another great race and it appears to be a match race between the seven and the eight. I’m giving the edge to Fernando Bale, two starts back he showed a devastating turn of foot when scoring at the Meadows in a blinding 29.71 and with a similar effort tonight he will prove extremely hard to hold out.

Margins is well placed in the wide draw and he returned to form with a blistering 27.73 Bendigo win, he doesn’t have same early speed as Fernando Bale but if he can be within four lengths off the back straight he should make it interesting as they hit the line.

Usain I’m Nutty has been placed in three of four here and he will be charging home at the end, he is better suited to a wide draw but he should get plenty of cover from the two in the early stages.
