Jubilea Bale is dropping considerably in class and with an even getaway she should prove very hard to hold out. Two starts back she showed her strength when she overcame early difficulties to score at Warragul in 26.33. With a slow beginner drawn underneath she should get a fairly clear passage early and she has won here previously in a zippy 29.57.

Scanez Cee has been racing in very consistent form of late and he was narrowly beaten here last week behind the exciting Dyna Yemen. He consistently runs around the 5.15 mark early and that should see him settle in the top three early. War Room is the interesting runner, he has been struggling of late in Victoria but prior to coming here he had scored some blistering wins on prominent NSW tracks. Polly Bale is going to be well supported and she really caught the eye when scoring at The Meadows in a slick 30.01, my only concern with her is that she may have trouble crossing in the first 50m.

10DAINTREE PUZZLE [5]Res.42232NBTG Joske (Jeeralang Junction)

Rockin’ Josie looks well placed in the pink draw and she returned to her brilliant best with a sizzling 34.24 heat win last week. From the draw she should get room to muster in the first 50m and that should allow her to carve across to the early lead. Her heat winning time was at least three lengths faster than any other heat and she has the ability to either lead or come from off the speed in her races.

Dr. Rahoul took over soon after the start in his commanding 34.56 heat win and from the red he should be in a prominent position early, he isn’t overly strong but if he holds them out at the first bend he may just pinch the race. Penance Allen has the class edge but she is going to need a heap of luck in the first 50m. If she can reproduce her 34.35 PB run here she will be right in the mix. Dr. Des has a great record here and if he can get away cleanly he should be a major factor, however I think he may be a little under the odds in this event.

8KIM KEEPING (NSW)[5]5124742.31(2)J Cottrell (Langwarrin)

Starc is an exciting prospect and his effort when placed here last week was impressive. He was beaten six lengths behind Ruff Cut Diamond here last week but they did run an eye popping 41.52 in that event. I would expect him to settle in the top two again early and he appears to be getting stronger and stronger with every run over this journey.

Blinker’s On is going to start a false favourite again and although he is a winning chance he is going to be way under the odds. He is likely to get back in the early stages and he was quite disappointing when coming from off the speed at Bendigo last time over 660m. Flying Twist has been far from disgraced in her two recent placings over this trip and she can run a monster race at odds again. She is likely to set the tempo and if there is some shuffling behind she may just steal the prize. Love Affair rounds out the chances, she recently scored an all the way Meadows win in 42.95 recently and that type of effort would see her be competitive in this.

Mepunga Fearon normally pings the lids and he led for a long way when narrowly beaten in his heat last week. From the rails draw he should punch through and lead again and with a wide runner drawn on his outside I am expecting him to get away with a bigger mid race lead. Obviously the last 30m is going to be a concern again but at around the $3.50 mark I’m willing to take the chance.

Deadly Boy reeled in Mepunga Fearon last week and he exits the same pin tonight, the concern with him is that there is more pace drawn underneath him tonight and he may be posted wide for the first 200m or so. If he gets a similar run early as last week he is an obvious contender but I wouldn’t be willing to take short odds. Rebelation has the good draw and he wasn’t disgraced in his heat, he has some early speed and he should be able to settle in the top three. Prior to last week he was well down on confidence and after last week’s improved effort he may continue to improve.

Dyna Ostrander was desperately unlucky in last week’s SA Derby Final at Angle Park and he should make amends tonight at nice odds. After a smart getaway, he was about to cross and lead but just as he was about to clear them he was dragged down and he lost all momentum. With slow beginners all around him tonight he should get a very clear passage early and he will give a great sight on the bunny.

Texas Titan loves racing over this track and trip and he recently powered to the line when scoring at Angle Park in 29.77. He likes to use a bit of the track, however from the red he should get a fairly clear passage early and that will allow him to get into some open space without too much trouble. Banjo Boy resumes from a spell and if he is wound up he should make an impact. There is a fair bit of speed drawn around him in this event so he can’t afford to make too many mistakes early. Farmor Las Vegas is ridiculously consistent and he should be in the mix for a long way, surprisingly he has a great record from this draw and he is worth a ticket if he goes around at silly odds.

Campaspe Will has won five of seven from this draw with a keen railer in box seven he is likely to better that winning record. Three starts ago he set the track alight at The Meadows when posting a blistering 29.72 win and a similar effort tonight would see him get the cash with relative ease.

Wind Whistler is racing like an absolute Beast at present and he will be charging home again. He is likely to get a long way back in the early stages but he has won five of nine here so he has no trouble working his way through a field. Ollie Bale is a little hit or miss early but he showed he can run time when he scored an all the way Meadows win recently in 29.89. He needs to lead to win his races but with slow beginners either side he may be able to find the bunny early. Dream It is going to be well fancied and with some luck early he is a major player, however with the pace around him I think he is a risk tonight. National Time and Take Charge are two smokey’s who must be included in your quaddies, both are lid pingers and if there is some shuffling behind, either one could steal the prize.

Mepunga Armagh had been struggling in recent weeks but last time at Angle Park he showed a glimpse of his best and I would expect that his confidence will continue to climb. After a slow getaway he showed that blistering turn of foot which had been missing in his recent efforts. If he can reproduce that turn of foot he should have no trouble holding the lead from the red and he will be running time on the bunny.

Warrior King smashed his rivals when scoring here in 29.30 two runs back and with a clear run in the first 50m he should be a major player again. Once again the box draw is against him and he will need a lot to go right for him to win. Gimme Fuel reeled off smart sectionals in his 29.44 win here last week and if he crosses the red early he will give a great sight again. Dello Bale could be the value in the event, he will trail them early but he hits the line strongly in his races and he does have a very impressive 29.41 PB.

My Bro Fabio is racing in electric fashion and it’s hard to see him being beaten after he recently broke the Canberra Track Record with a breathtaking 29.89 win. He followed that effort up by winning the Canberra Cup final by a whopping 12 lengths. If he can get through the first bend with only a few knocks he should balance up as they head for the back straight and he will round them up very quickly.

Oakvale Destiny recently captured the Group Two SA Oaks Final and she loves racing here, like the favourite she can be a little slow to begin but she does have a tremendous turn of foot and she always finds a way to put herself into contention. Marcus Joe should settle in the top two early and he will give a great sight, he has won here previously in 29.24 and a similar effort would see him go very close to winning. Samus Allen rounds out the genuine chances, she has the speed to cross and lead and she appears to be getting stronger with every run.

Heidi Go Seek has shown some improvement in her two most recent efforts and she should appreciate the step up in distance. She has won three of five over this journey and she has a tendency to ping the lids over this distance range. With no speed in the inside two boxes, I can see her easily crossing to the early lead and she will give a great sight at nice odds.

Rumero Reason has his favourite draw and he posted his impressive 34.33 PB here from this pin. From the red he should settle a lot closer to the speed than normal and I would expect him to be putting pressure on the leaders as they head off the back straight. Ralphy Cinel has early speed and he should appreciate the empty draw on his outside. This is a bit or a rise in class for him but he should be able to adapt. Tick Bale is the interesting runner, he is much better than his recent form reads and he has a great record from wide draws.

Gorham Bale hasn’t had a lot of luck in recent weeks and he is bursting to break through. There is a bit of speed drawn around him and that should help him, as it will allow him to get a nice sit in the early stages. When he gets out into some open space he is capable of reeling off very impressive sectionals which is evident by his brilliant 29.42 PB here.

Speed Series has a great record from the red and he can show smart early speed in his races. He has clearly lost a couple of lengths with age but his placing at Warragul two runs back showed he is still more than competitive. Prince To Excel has scored two strong 440m Sale wins of late and he should be ready to step back up to 500m. Fabio is likely to start favourite but I think he is a risk tonight as this is clearly the toughest race he has contested in his brief career.

Unix Bale is a keen railer and the way she has been hitting the line of late suggests that she is looking for this distance range. She recently made the SA Oaks Final and the manner in which she finished off the race in her heat was very impressive. From the inside draw she should be able to settle mid pack and she should make a strong move mid race, this is one of the weakest races she has contested for a while and she should be value.

Tweak scored a more than handy 34.67 Meadows win three runs back and he should set a cracking pace. He is yet to win here in seven tries over this journey but this is a big drop in class for him. Dyna Geldof has been racing well of late and he will settle in the top two early. He isn’t strong in the run home but if there is some trouble behind he may get away with the prize. He Isn’t Really has a heap of talent and if he can get some luck in the first 50m he won’t be far away.

Race 12 – 515M Grade 5 – 10:52PM

Cosmic Wise overcame a bad start to score at Angle Park last week in 30.29 and tonight I would expect her to step a lot better and dictate the terms. She has a smart 29.60 PB over this journey and she is armed with a great turn of foot when she hits the sand, with slow beginners on either side she should get all the breaks.

Dyna Glinda is much better than her recent form suggested and if she can step a little better tonight she will run a big race at odds. Four starts ago she posted a strong 34.43 Meadows win but she hasn’t experienced a lot of luck since then. Hailstorm Billy loves racing here and he will be steaming home in the closing stages, he is a great dog to anchor for second and third in your exotic bets. Soho Rhythm has the good draw and she was far from disgraced in her recent 545m Ballarat placing.
