Alongside Melbourne Cup heat night, this is the best race card you will see all year. The first heat is one of the more open heats and if gun NSW speedster Winsome Prince can handle the track, he will take a power of beating. He is a high speed chaser and this track will suit his racing pattern, the only concern with him is that he can be a tad slow to begin at times and from the draw he will need a couple of things to go his way early. He has won 15 of 20 overall and I think he can handle himself well in his Meadows debut.

Allen Deed is all class and he is the current track record holder, like always his chances will come down to what happens in the first 50m. The middle pin isn’t ideal but it’s not the worst he could have drawn. He has the ability to step cleanly and there isn’t a whole lot of speed around him, so with a good getaway he might be able to balance up in the first half of the field. If you knew he was going to get a clear run you would empty the bank account but his racing pattern means that there is always a risk in the early stages with him.

Recruitment finally showed his true ability with a sizzling 29.84 win here last week and he is drawn to feature again, he will need to lead to win but from the red he should get every chance.

Cosmic Wise can’t be left out also, she won the Rookie Rebel here last week and she is probably better suited back to this trip.

This appears to be a match race between two speed demons in Fernando Bale and Azza Azza Azza. I’m giving the edge to Fernando Bale, he is the more reliable beginner of the two chasers and he has the inside draw, so even if they both step cleanly he should have the speed to hold them out. He is absolutely flying at present and if he finds the early lead tonight, I can see a sub 29.60 run on the cards.

Azza Azza Azza has really put it altogether in recent weeks and he should run a bottler again. He showed last time out he has no trouble running the trip by scoring a strong win here in a sizzling 29.71, I think he will need to lead to win tonight but even if he camps second he should make Fernando Bale work hard for victory.

Xtreme Knocka isn’t the most talented chaser in the race but when he can find the rail in his races, he tends to chase very hard. He is likely to get burnt off early but he should stick on quite well and I can see him taking home some minor money.

Lamia Bale is super consistent and she rounds out the chances, she was far from disgraced in the Rookie Rebel and I’m expecting another forward showing.

The first heat for the stayers looks pretty straight forward, Space Star has taken all before him in recent weeks and although the red draw doesn’t suit, he still should have enough speed to push through and control the race. His winning time last week of 42.06 is simply off the charts and I think he should go through the series unbeaten and it is going to be a while until we see his next defeat.

My Mate Cobber is a classy WA stayer and he is still improving over this journey. He does his best racing when he can dictate the terms out in front, he should probably be able to cross and find the rail but once Space Star balances up I’m expecting him to give him windburn. He can’t beat the favourite but he does look a solid bet for the quinella spot.

Love Affair has a great record here and she could run home and snag some minor money, whilst if Zipping Felix can settle near the speed he could run a cheeky race at odds.

10AXIS BALE (NSW)[5]Res.83724NBTJ Hunt (Lara)

Another great lineup set to do battle and I think the outside division will get across and control the race. Dyna Double One is a star of the future and quite possibly the fastest chaser in the land. He has won four of five over this trip and he has a ridiculous 29.52 PB. There is very little early speed in this event so he should get across quite easily and if he finds the lure I can’t see them reeling him in.

Quartz Bale is a serious WA chaser and he could be the value in the event, he has scored some devastating wins in his home state and he was recently placed in the Group One Perth Cup. He will need some luck from the middle pin but if the favourites happen to make a mistake he should be there to capitalise.

Above All is a freak and if given a clear run he is a great chance, however I think his might get shuffled back early from the rails draw and he will find it hard to give these type of chasers a start and a beating.

Kerrigan Bale is airborne at present and if she pings the lids she can cause a minor upset.

Dyna Villa has been a tad disappointing of late but he has also been very unlucky, he is currently $4 fixed which is ridiculous odds for a chaser of his calibre. He has very little speed drawn on his outside tonight, so he should be able to hold the early lead and he has proven in his career to date that he is very hard to reel in when allowed to dictate the terms in front. He is way over the odds and I think he is the steal of the night.

Caustic Bale has an enormous engine and if he can get away cleanly he should run a big race, last week he overcame some early difficulties to score and I think with a clear run he is capable of getting down to around the 29.65 mark.

Astronomize is a classy WA chaser and he recently made the final of the Group One Perth Cup, he has seen the track and he has the speed to get across early, he could be the value in the event.

Ride The Rails and Midnight Flynn are both in great form and must be respected, however both are poorly drawn and they will need a lot to go right for them to feature.

Lady Toy was desperately unlucky here last week but from the red tonight she should be afforded all the favours and she should return to the winners list. Her record here isn’t great but it’s too hard to ignore her effort at Cannington two runs back and from box one I can’t see her settling any worse than third as they head through the first turn.

Footluce Diva won a handicap here recently and she should set a cracking pace, I dont think she can hold on for the win but she should be able to snag some minor money.

Starc has been racing well in top company of late and he should atone for a luckless effort here last week. He has the ability to lead or come from off the speed in his races and that makes him a big threat.

Psychotic Gold really impressed me last week when placed in the Zoom Top and she should turn in a solid performance again tonight, she will need some luck early but she is very strong and she may just swoop over the top of them late in the race.

One of the more open heats of the night and I’ve gone with one of my favourites in Dyna Yemen. His form of late hasn’t been great but he has a big engine and he has won six of 12 over this journey. With Marcus Joe expected to lead, he should be able to drop in just behind him and get a nice sit for most of the journey and as they round for home he should be able to reel them in.

Marcus Joe turned in a great performance when placed here last week in the Temlee and he has a great overall record here. He has come up with the good draw and if he can hold them out early he should give a great sight.

Spring Leaf is in career best form and she is another who excels here, I’m a little concerned about the speed on her outside but with an ounce of luck early she should run a big race.

Hostile must also be respected, he is resuming from a spell and he is capable of spearing the lids, Chica Destacada is a great chaser but she appears to be off her game at present and I dont give her much hope.

My Bro Fabio is in scintillating form at present and with an ounce of luck he should win. Last week he turned in a stellar performance when winning the Temlee and from a similar wide draw tonight he should get every chance to win, however I wouldn’t be rushing in too take the short odds. There is a fair bit of speed in this event and there are likely to be a few chasers that are going to fall in his lap mid race. He is obviously the top pick but I would be happy to risk him tonight.

Diva’s Shadow is an explosive beginner and she blew her rivals away when scoring here last time in 29.83. With a clean getaway tonight she should have more than enough speed to cross and I think she might just steal the prize mid race.

Samus Allen beat a quality lineup at Sandown two runs back in 29.30 and she tends to save her best for this track and trip, she should settle in the top two early and I’m expecting a big run.

Quite an open affair but I found it hard to go past the in form Blinker’s On based on his performance here last week. He was very gallant in defeat in the Zoom Top and for a fleeting moment he looked as though he was going to get very close to Space Star. If he can step well again tonight he should be able to assume control mid race and he should prove too strong in the run home.

Opec Bale is bred to be a staying star and he has worked his way through the ranks nicely. He recently powered to the line when scoring at Sandown in 41.99 and he is unbeaten in two attempts here.

Flying Twist should set the early speed and if they shuffle up behind her she may just steal the prize, she has a great record over this journey and if she goes around at silly odds she may be worth a bet.

Deadly Boy rounds out the chances, he will settle near the speed and he has been placed in his only two tries over this trip.

Luca Neveelk is all class and with the lack of early speed in this event I can see him leading throughout quite easily. He has won over this trip in a solid 30.15 previously but he is a much stronger chaser this time around and he should be running around 29.70ish on the lure.

Ikaku Bale finally delivered on his early promise with a dazzling 29.60 win here last week and if he repeats that effort he will take a power of beating, the only worry tonight is that he will need some room in the early stages and he is unlikely to get it.

Winsome Mission is a beast and if he can handle the track he will be right in the finish, he is suited to the wide draw and he just needs some luck at the first turn.

Dyna Nihilist has the rails draw and he is a must for your exotic bets, he might get too far back early to win but he will be steaming home and he can snag some minor money.

Weblec Belle had her first look at the track here last week and she was super impressive when narrowly beaten by Azza Azza Azza. She should be able to improve on that effort and with a slow beginner on her outside she should get every chance to push through in the run to the first bend.

Dawkins Bale was a tad disappointing when beaten here last week but that was his first 500m run for three weeks, so I would expect him to improve on that run.

Droopy’s Bentley is an enormous talent and if I knew he was going to step cleanly he would be my top pick. Last time out he took a heap of ground off Dyna Double One in the run home and he went down by under two lengths in the Perth Cup Consolation.

Tough race to close out the night but I think if Ralphy Cinel can handle the rise in distance he should be able to score. He recently captured the final of the Big Dog Cup at Albion Park and the way he hit the line in that event suggests that he should be able to cover the extra trip.

Big Kat has been racing in good fashion of late and she appears to be good value. She should be suited to the wide draw and three starts back she was narrowly beaten at Sandown Park in very fast time.

Evie Jane must be respected, she has a great record here and she can either lead or come from off the speed in her races, the middle pin is a worry but if she can avoid early bother she will be right in the mix.

Luna Jinx is probably the most talented chaser in the event but she does a lot of things wrong in her races, if she is over the odds she might be worth a bet.

Top Four: 5 – 7 – 4 – 6
