Udon Bale appears to have put it all together and from the red draw he should be able to notch a hat trick of wins. After a string of luckless efforts he managed to gain some luck in running and he looked super impressive when scoring here in a zippy 30.06 here two runs back. He is drawn to settle near the speed and he should take a power of beating.

Hercules Bale was smartly placed here two runs back behind the highly promising West On Delly and he was also a very strong 30.56 winner here last time out. He should be able to find the rail soon after the start and he could be the value in the race. Humming Birdhill was never headed in her handy 30.28 win here two runs back and if she can turn in a similar effort tonight she will be right in the mix. Opec Bale rounds out the chances, he is the run on chaser in the event and he has raced very well here in the past.

Spring Grace is armed with an abundance of early speed and if she can ping the lids tonight she should give them something to catch. She likes to scout a little wide in her races but he early speed should help her avoid any early difficulties. Two starts back she was a commanding 30.20 winner here and that type of effort should be enough to score tonight.

Dawkins Bale is the most talented chaser in the event and if he gets a clear crack at them he will prove very hard to hold out. Three starts back he posted a slick 30.09 victory here but he hasn’t had much luck in his two subsequent runs. Got The Picture is another speedy beginner and he should match motors with Spring Grace for most of the journey, he isn’t overly strong in the run home but he has been placed in his only two tries here. Amaro Bale is the only other genuine chance in the race, he was a solid 30.48 winner here at his second start and he appears to have improved a fair bit since then.

10OPUS BALE (NSW)[5]Res.58716NBTS Collins (Lara)

The exciting Tiggerlong Await is making his much anticipated metro debut and he should be primed for a bold showing. Two starts back he scored a commanding nine length win at Geelong and he stopped the clock in a very impressive 25.78. He will need some luck at the first turn but he should be suited by the wide draw and he doesn’t have much speed drawn underneath him.

Conquer Fear is much better than his form indicates and his effort at Warragul two runs back was eye catching. He is poorly drawn in the six but he is likely to be over the odds and with an ounce of luck early he should run a bottler.

Benzo Bale can be a little hit or miss early but he has won two of three here and he turned some heads when winning at Sandown four runs back in a slick 29.50. He probably needs to lead to win but with a clean getaway that isn’t beyond him.

Dyna Lemmy can be hard to follow at times but he is back in form after a strong Horsham win and that might be the confidence booster he needed.

8GALLOPING BETSY [5]86376NBTR Conway (Bunyip)

Tough race with four littermates set to do battle and I think the longest price one can get the job done. Du Plessis has been very inconsistent in his career to date but he has shown good signs when switched on. Five starts back he led all the way at Ballarat in a very zippy 30.84 and if he can find the bunny in the early stages tonight he will prove very hard to reel in.

Love Affair has raced well here in the past and she should appreciate the drop in class tonight. Two starts back she was placed in very quick time here and with slow beginners on her outside tonight she should get every chance in the early stages. Global Lad is rarely far away and he should probably lead for most of the journey. I’m not convinced that he is a genuine staying type but he is racing well and this isn’t an overly strong race. Roethlisberger continues to improve with more racing and he should make up for his luckless effort here last time. He is likely to settle well back early but he is strong and he is a must for your exotic bets.

10DELI ALLEN (NSW)[5]Res.8642630.31(6)S Collins (Lara)

Jubilea Bale has won five of her eight starts over this track and trip and she appears drawn to figure prominently again. She is normally a very good beginner and if she steps well she should have enough speed to hold them out at the first bend. With Jordan Allen likely to run cover for her at the first turn she should be able to zip away and score comfortably.

Jordan Allen returned to form with a speedy 29.53 Sandown Park win last time and he should be in the mix for a long way again. Trail Blazing could be the value in the event, he is likely to settle back in the field but he should be able to lob onto the rail soon after the start and he can then drive up behind the leaders as they head for the back straight. Crusade Marjen is a ridiculous talent and he just needs luck to feature. His box manners can let him down at times and he is going to need a bit of room in the first 20m to muster speed.

Star Recall is a gun WA speedster and she is drawn to lead throughout. Last week she pinged the lids and reeled off blistering sectionals before stopping the timer in a brilliant 34.26. She proved last week that she has no trouble running out the journey so if she pings and runs again tonight it’s hard to see her being reeled in.

Space Star has got plenty of gears and if he can get out into some open space he will take some stopping. He can bomb the start at times but he generally picks himself up quickly and he looked ultra impressive in his strong 34.37 heat win. Hostile used his inside draw to advantage in his great 34.19 heat win and he is clearly a chance again tonight. The big concern with him is that he is desperate for the fence and he will need a few things to go his way in the early stages. Shall She Rock is the run on type in the event and if she can find the fence early and settle mid pack she is a chance of running home into a place.

Go Mobo has been racing in consistent fashion and he appears to be getting stronger with every run. Tonight there is very little speed drawn around him so if he can step cleanly he should be able to drive to the early lead and he will give a great sight on the bunny.

Duchess Bale does her best racing over this trip and she will be looking to regain some confidence. She is capable of pinging the lids and if she can settle in the top two she should make Go Mobo work hard for victory. Dewana Lass is ideally drawn out wide and she shouldn’t be too far away, she rarely wins these days but she did record a string on placings in October. Tyra Giselle rounds out the chances, she isn’t a genuine winning chance but she is well placed out wide and she can sneak into a place.

Where’s The Surf returned to form at Warragul last time and he appears well placed tonight to continue on his winning way. With the speedy King Surfa drawn underneath, he should get a nice cart across as they head into the first bend and if he can settle in the top three he should prove too strong in the run home.

Quantum Bale was far from disgraced when placed behind Humphrey Bale here last week and with an ounce of luck early he could go one better. The box draw is against him but he is racing well and he continues to improve with every run.

King Surfa is expected to lead the race and he should be in the mix for a long way, however he isn’t overly strong so he may be a sitting duck for the swoopers in the last 30m.

Dyna Ostrander has been disappointing of late but he looks well placed in a wide draw and he has broken 30 seconds here previously.

Ulla Allen broke through for a well deserved win here last week in 30.52 and with a clean getaway tonight she should make it two in a row. She is normally a fair beginner but she does muster speed quickly and the track was pretty slow last week so I would expect her to go much faster than 30.52 tonight.

Stealthy Blonde has the coveted red draw and she should be in the top two for most of the trip, her last 30m is very weak but if they shuffle up behind her she may just steal the prize.

Ester Bale hit the line strongly in her 30.72 heat win and she will be steaming home again, she may get too far back early to win but she can’t be left out of your exotic bets.

Tzar Norma gave a great sight in her heat and she should turn in a similar performance tonight, there is a little more speed underneath her in this event so she will need a few things to go her way in the first 40m.

Mepunga Moss is coming off a six week break and she should be primed for a bold first up showing. This is clearly the weakest race that she has contested for some time and she shouldn’t have too much trouble crossing in the early stages. With four wins from 10 tries here, it’s hard to see her being run down if she finds the early lead.

Jack Silver turned in a strong performance when placed at Sandown last time and he should be in the mix again, he can be hit or miss early but if he steps away cleanly he should be able to follow the favourite across early.

Flame Bale returned to the winners list at Geelong in 25.99 and from the red she shouldn’t be too far away again. She rises in class tonight but she has a good record here and the draw is a big advantage.

Skinny Vinnie is the only other legitimate chance, he is fairly consistent and he loves racing over this track and trip.

Dyna Zod can be very hard to follow at times but he has a favourable draw tonight and he tends to do his best racing here. Two starts back he won here in a smart 30.13 and on that occasion he hit the line strongly after settling mid field. From the draw tonight he should settle in the first half and he should then prove too classy.

Cheeky Hand should set a cracking pace and she should give a great sight. In late October she turned in a great performance to win at Sandown in 29.59 and if she can reproduce that type of effort she will prove very hard to reel in.

Weston East is an exciting prospect and he only needs a clear run to feature. He has turned in some enormous performances of late and he should play a major role tonight.

Missile Flash could be the value, she has a solid record here and she is better than her form indicates.

The Meadows Race 12 – 5th Grade – 525 metres – 11:02pm

See Him Next is a promising type and he looks well placed in the pink draw. Last time out he overcame some difficulties in running when winning at Warrnambool in 25.65 and if he can get across tonight he should prove very hard to reel in. The rise in distance is a concern but the manner in which he has hit the line recently would suggest that he should handle the journey.

Gunloch is in good hands and he has shown plenty of talent in his brief career. He should have the speed to settle in the top three and he is due for a change of luck. Walt Bale scored a top 30.06 win here in November and if he can get some luck in the first 50m he should feature again. His box manners aren’t great so he is going to need everything to go right in the initial stages. Nemesis Bale has been placed in six of seven here and he must be included in your exotics.
