Earl Bale is armed with blistering early speed and he is showing tremendous promise. Last week he recorded a brilliant 5.04 to the first marker before scoring a comfortable win in 30.43. The overall time wasn’t flashy but he is getting stronger with every run and he should get down to around the 30.20 mark tonight.

Sam Toocan has a heap of talent but he makes a lot of mistakes in his races, however this is one of the weakest races he will contest and if he can get some room in the early stages he should make an impact. Soul Maker could be the smokey at nice odds, she is much better than her recent form reads and she has been racing against some talented types of late. Lister Bale rounds out the chances, he was a solid 30.05 Sandown Park winner on debut and he hasn’t had a lot of luck since, with a clean getaway he should be right there.

Satsuki Bale was far from disgraced when placed at Ballarat during the week and she looks well placed here. She has been beaten in her four tries here, however she showed a big return to form at Ballarat and she should race with a lot more confidence tonight. There isn’t a whole lot of speed underneath so she should get a fairly cheap lead.

Jayney Bale is another promising speedster and she was a recent strong 30.35 winner here and she is capable of going much quicker on the clock, the only concern with her is that she can bomb the start at times. Pocket Kings didn’t have much luck here last time and he could run a big race at odds. He can show early speed in his races and this race isn’t overly strong. Laurie’s Chance is the run on dog in the event and he has raced consistently here in the past having been placed in four of five over this journey.

Surf Jester is a very hard dog to follow but he has his favourite draw and with a clean getaway he should be a major player. Two starts ago he posted a handy 29.88 Sandown Park win from this pin and he really does excel when given room to muster pace in the first 50m.

Hestia Bale looks the likely leader and she recently scored back to back Geelong wins in handy times. If she can reproduce her 30.39 PB run here she will prove very hard to gun down. Ousai Bale continues to improve with every run and he really hit the line well when scoring at Warragul in 26.25 recently. Creamy Soda can show early speed and he has won three in a row with the latest being here in 30.53. It was his first look here last run so I would expect him to be able to go a little quicker this time around.

Highbury showed a big return to form when beating the highly talented Jewel Bale at Sandown Park last time in 29.55. On that occasion he pinged the lids and posted impressive sectionals. Tonight there doesn’t appear to be a heap of speed drawn underneath so with an even getaway he should once again find the early lead. He has proven to be a very talented chaser when on the bunny so this really looks his race.

Upset Boy has been flying of late but he has only been rewarded with one win and four straight placings. His racing pattern makes things hard for him but if some gaps open up for him mid race he should be able to figure in the finish. Allen Gravion is drawn poorly out wide but his last start Shepparton win in 25.38 is too hard ignore. If he can somehow find the rail without finding too much trouble he should be able to hit the scoreboard. Soho Rhythm is well drawn and she is going to be well fancied, my concern with her is that she lacks mid race pace and she may get shuffled back.

Scenic Shot is drawn to hold the early lead and he should be much better for the run here last week when he scored an all the way 34.80 win. He appeared to get a little tired in the run home but it was his first 600m try and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run.

Eliza Blanche is expected to start a short priced favourite and rightly so after she scored a brilliant 34.43 heat win. The big concern with her is that she is desperate for the rail and there is quite a bit of early speed drawn underneath her, so she may be posted wide for most of the trip. Lou Todd has been placed in three of four over this trip and he is racing quite well. He should settle in the top two or three early and if there is some trouble behind he may get away with the prize at odds. Batmandu hit the line hard in his heat win and he must be included in your exotics and multiples.

8SHALL SHE ROCK [4]5411242.38(7)D Crawford (Pearcedale)

Pretty open race but I’ve decided to go with the true stayer in Lady Toy. She is going to get a long way out of her ground in the early stages but this race features a number of front runners who will struggle in the closing stages. If she can find the rail soon after the start she should be able to make a strong move mid race.

Starc posted a brilliant 42.10 Sandown win four runs back and he hasn’t had much luck since. With an even getaway he should have enough natural speed that will allow him to settle in the top three and from there he will prove hard to hold out. Looby Lu is the interesting runner, she is second up from a short spell and she is likely to lead for a long way, the concern with her is that she may be a run or two short and she may stitch up in the final 50m.

Massive Merv showed smart early speed at Shepparton over 650m last time and with the drop in class tonight he may build up a big enough lead mid race to hold on. There isn’t too much speed drawn on the inside so he shouldn’t have too much trouble crossing in the first 50m. He should be double figure odds and he is definitely worth an each way ticket.

Strange Wish has been racing in much stronger company of late and he should be suited by the rise in distance, three starts ago he turned in a big performance when he charged home to be placed behind the in form National Time. Dyna Geldof is another who is dropping in class and he should be able to regain some confidence if he can find the lure early. His last 40m is always a worry over this journey but if he happens to cross he may just steal the prize. Sign Of Snow beat a classy line-up at Sandown in 34.37 recently and a similar effort tonight would see him be competitive, overall this is a very open race and I suggest you go wide in the quaddies.

Elite Devil looks the likely leader and four starts ago he led here for a long way and it took the Adelaide Cup champ Allen Deed to reel him in. This race is an obvious class drop and if he lands on the bunny he should take a power of beating.

Go Mobo is class act and his effort when placed at Warragul during the week was far from disappointing. He generally begins well but his turn of foot is what will put him into the race early, he has won here previously in 30.24 but these days he is capable of going sub 30. Polly Bale is the up and comer and she is a major player based on her recent 30.01 win here, she can be a little hit or miss at box rise but she does muster speed quickly and she may be able to get a nice sit behind Elite Devil in the early stages.

Zipping Joe resumed from a short spell at Cranbourne during the week and he powered to the line when placed behind Dyna Ishaan. He should be better suited to this journey and this is one of the weakest races he has contested for some time.

Tick Bale is much better than his recent form suggests and he should be able to show some improvement. Last week he stepped quickly and as he was about to settle in a prominent position he copped a major knock. With an ounce of luck in the first 50m he should be able to make amends tonight. Kayo Marciarno is the run on dog in the event, he rarely wins here but he is never far away. If your taking exotics, he is a great dog to anchor for third and fourth. Athos could be the value in the event, he can ping the lids on occasions and he could give a great sight out in front.

I think we can find some value in this race, Allen Zentax should go around at the $8 mark and he appears drawn to play a major role. He has a great record over this track and after a smart 400m placing at Warragul during the week he should be able to show a bit more natural zip.

Peter’s Pick is a gun chaser when on song but he has a habit of bombing the start, if he happens to get a clear run early then he will prove extremely hard to hold out. Bookkeeper resumed from a spell here last week and he was pretty disappointing, I’m sure he will improve on that run but I’d prefer to wait until he shows a little more. Allen Gizmo is another with a good record here and he could be value, he can show early speed in his races and with slow beginners either side he should get every chance to settle in the top two or three early.

Deadly Boy is a reliable beginner and based on his impressive 34.33 Sandown Park win recently he should prove very hard to reel in. This is his first try here over this journey but he does have a great record here over 525m.

Blue Mayhem is much better than her recent form reads and she should be suited by the rise in distance. With a clean getaway she should get a nice cart across in the early stages and she should give a great sight at odds. Heaps Of Ability is another who is better than his form reads and although he is better suited to a wider draw but he is still good enough to overcome a few difficulties in running. Thor Bale has been racing well of late and he should be in the mix for a long way, this is the toughest race he has contested for a while but he appears to be getting stronger with every run.

Race 12 – 525M Grade 5 – 11:00PM

Dyna Synch recently scored a commanding 27.12 Horsham win and his effort last time when beaten by Agent Jack was far from disappointing. This race features quite a few front runners and he should be able to get a nice sit early and then run over the top of them late in the race.

Sig Sauer has enough early dash to hold them out and he has been placed in his four tries here. He hasn’t been able to lead in his past few runs and he is a much better dog on the bunny, so if he happens to find the early lead he will prove hard to run down. Dr. Des will be hitting the line hard and he is always a threat in this type of class. He is suitably drawn nearer the inside and he may be a worth a saver bet if he goes around at silly odds. Penance Allen rounds out the winning hopes, she is better suited to a longer journey but she does possess great track sense.
