Tough race to kick off the cup heats but I think Campaspe Will can get the job done from his favourable wide draw. He was desperately unlucky here last time and if he can step like he did last week he should be able to settle in a winning position. Kiss Me Ketut has returned to form in recent weeks and he is aiming for a hat trick of wins. If he pings the lids he should give them something to catch. Oakvale Destiny ran a bottler in the Shootout here last week and if she finds the rail early she should be able to make some sort of impact. Above All is a flying machine and is obviously going to be well supported but he is poorly drawn tonight and a big risk.

Another tough race but it’s hard to look past the well drawn Hostile. Last week he stepped cleanly and reeled off ridiculous sectionals before posting a 29.28 victory. From the red he should have enough speed to hold them out and if he does it should be all over. Ritza Hattie is all class and she can ping the lids in her races. She has a sizzling 29.37 PB here and if she happens to find the bunny early she will give a great sight. Dyna Yemen is the real deal and he looked ultra impressive when posting a commanding 29.35 win here last week. If he can get away on terms he should be in the mix at the business end. Awesome Project is always a chance in this type of company and he must be respected, whilst the exciting Secret Spell will be short odds but I think she is a risk from the wide draw.

Double Rinse turned in a monster performance when placed behind Blinker’s On last time out at The Meadows and a repeat of that effort would see her just about lead all the way tonight. She is yet to feature in her three tries here but she has improve a lot of late and I expect a big performance tonight. Shall She Rock has the class edge and she has won three of seven here, she normally begins well and if she finds the bunny early she will prove extremely hard to reel in. Big Kat is never far away in these types of races and her effort behind Shall She Rock here three runs back was far from disgraceful. Mepunga Tiara rounds out the chances, she is much better than her recent efforts indicate and she should be suited by the rise in distance.

Space Star has recently joined the powerful Robert Britton kennel and this superstar in the making should make a good impression in his Sandown Park debut. He is suitably drawn out wide and he is armed with a dazzling turn of foot soon after box rise. He has won 11 of 19 starts to date and in most of those wins he has run the hands off the clock. Sweet It Is has the class edge and she set the track alight with a 41.46 win here last time, she is going to give Space Star a bit of a head start but she is too good to dismiss. Flying Twist has the good draw and she should land on the bunny early, she races much better when in the lead so she should give a nice sight at odds. Bailey Rose could be the value, she has been placed in five of seven here and she could be a nice place bet again.

Very open affair and I’m going with the well drawn Mepunga Hayley. Her recent form isn’t flashy but she hasn’t experienced a lot of luck in recent times and from the pink she should get a clear run early and clear shot at them as they head into the first turn. S he has an enormous engine and if she gets through the first bend she will take a power of beating. Clash Of Kings should have beaten Above All here two runs back and he is well placed near the inside. His box manners aren’t great but he does muster pace at a rate of knots, if he is given a clear run in the first 30m he should settle in the top two early and he will give a great sight. Banjo Boy has been under an injury cloud of late but if he is sound he is obviously a great chance, he will need to lead to win but from the red he should get every chance. Cawbourne Whip is the value, she stormed home here last week and she will be much better for that run.

Keybow returned to his best at The Meadows last time when posting a blistering 29.72 win and a similar effort tonight will see him win again. He can sometimes be a little slow to begin but with a slow beginner drawn directly underneath he should be afforded a clearer run into the first bend even if he does miss away. Iva Vision captured the Shootout here last week and he should prove hard to hold out again, he is poorly drawn tonight but he is going too well at present and he is capable of overcoming some difficulties in running. Take Charge is drawn to hold them out at the first bend and he caught the eye with a speedy 30.00 Meadows win two runs back, his last 30m is always a struggle but if he holds them out early he should set up a nice lead mid race. Crackerjack Dak is back in form and he has won five of six here, he must cross and lead to win so maybe place claims look best tonight.

Star Recall was never out of trouble here last week and she should show immense improvement. Prior to coming to Victoria she had posted two sub 30 second wins at Cannington and if she can reproduce that form she should be running around the 29.10 mark on the bunny here. Allen Deed is a freak and he should have won the Shootout last week, if he can get through the first bend tonight he will prove extremely hard to hold out. Peloton Bale has the good draw and he should get all the breaks as they head into the first bend, if the two favourites happen to make some mistakes he should be there to pounce. Oscura and Nockabout Aussie are the two run on dogs in the event, they are great place prospects and it could be worth anchoring them for third and fourth in the exotics.

My Bro Fabio is flying and with any sort of luck he should win. His two efforts to win at The Meadows over 600m of late have been massive and prior to that he turned in a strong effort to win here in 29.23. He is capable of just about anything and as long as he gets through the first turn he will prove very hard to hold out. Dyna Villa is unbeaten here in six tries and if he steps cleanly he should give the favourite something to catch. Lamia Bale has been racing well here of late and she deserves a change of luck, it’s a tough ask from the pink draw but she may give a sight at odds. Bessy Boo is a gun NSW speedster and he will improve on his steady trial effort here last week, if he goes around at silly odds he might be worth an each way ticket.

Zipping Maggie has been a little unlucky but also disappointing of late but she looks suited in this event. She normally begins well and with a good getaway tonight she should be able to lead from go to whoa. Dyna Kayla is resuming from a short spell and she trialled well here recently over 515m. Being fresh, she should be able to settle in the top two early and she should be thereabouts at the end. Lady Toy is a strong finisher and she is never far away over this journey, from the red she should settle a little closer than normal and a big performance is expected. Sisco Rage is airborne and he should put some pressure on early, his last 50m is a worry but he is still a strong chance.

Zipping Rory is a tad hit or miss early but when he does bounce on the bunny he is capable of running ridiculous times. Las time out at The Meadows he landed on the lure and scored a commanding victory in a scorching 42.46. This race is a bit stronger but if he finds the early lead he will take a power of beating. Blinker’s On can find trouble in his races but he is super talented when given clear running. He is aiming for five in a row and with an ounce of luck early he will be right in the finish. Shot To Bits hit the line strongly when scoring here last time in 41.87 and if he can settle in the top four he should make an impact again, he is a star stayer in the making but he is still learning the trade.

Marcus Joe has the gun draw and he is all class. Last time out at The Meadows he was runner up in the Silver Bullet and he reeled in Luca Neveelk in the closing stages of that event. From the red tonight he should settle just behind Luca Neveelk or with a good getaway he could have enough pace to hold him out and he is always strong in the run to the line. Luca Neveelk is flying and he has blistering early speed. He is making his race debut here but I’m sure he would have had a few trials previously. Dream It returned to his best with a scorching 29.23 win here last week and he must be respected again.

Race 12 – Melbourne Cup Heat 8 – 10.54PM

National Time is a classy speedster and if he reproduces his 25.16 winning effort from Ballarat two runs back he will prove very hard to reel in. His last 40m is a concern but I’m expecting him to set up a big lead mid race. Buckle Up Wes recently won the Group One Topgun recently and if he gets away cleanly he should get the cash, my concern with him is that he is yet to feature in his two tries here. Cosmic Wise has the good draw and she has the ability to lead or come from off the speed.
