Jailor Bale has continued to improve with every run and he should prove very hard to hold out in this event. He is armed with very smart early speed and with a clean getaway he should be able to carve across and assume control. To date he has recorded around the 30.40 here but he did get down to the 30.30 mark last time. With three hit outs under his belt he should hit the line even better and a 30.20 run would be enough to score.

Agile Reason was a speedy 30.26 debut winner here in March and he hasn’t had much luck since, however he did show good signs when placed at Geelong last time over 460-metres. There is a bit of speed on his outside but if he can avoid early bother he should be there at the end.

Hisagi Bale showed devastating early speed in his 30.15 debut win here but he hasn’t been able to reproduce that type of form since as he has been missing the kick, if he can mend his box manners he should make an impact.

Zipping Chrystal rounds out the chances, she will be hitting the line hard and she must be included in your exotics.

Armed And Ready is a beast and he should be winning tonight, last time out he hit the line well when scoring at Shepparton in 25.37. Three starts back he showed that he can now handle this distance range when posting a ridiculous 29.19 Sandown Park and if he brings that type of form to the Meadows they will have no chance of catching him.

Whodat Knockin’ is ideally drawn and he is all class, I dont think he can go with the favourite early but he is very strong and if he is close enough off the back straight he might give the leader a scare.

Tat Jocko has a good record here and he does own a blistering 29.75 PB, he is clearly a great chance of winning but this is a big rise in class for him and he can be a little slow to begin at times. In this company he can’t really afford to make any mistakes.

Cosmic Owl destroyed a solid lineup here on Wednesday in 29.95 and a repeat of that will see her figure in the finish, my only concern with her is that there is a fair bit of speed underneath her so she may struggle to get across.

West On Delly has returned to her brilliant best in recent weeks and her two Cranbourne wins were in sizzling times. She can miss the kick at times but she is armed with a blinding turn of foot and with a wide runner on her outside she should be afforded a clear run in the early stages. There are a couple of handy ones in this event so you might be able to get around the $3 mark with William Hill.

Ride The Rails is better than his recent form reads and he should be suited to the wide draw, like the five, he isn’t the best of beginners but he does muster speed quickly and when given room he is capable of running ridiculous times.

Dundee Toro is more than capable on his night and he looks well placed in the red, if he can hold them out in the run to the first turn he then becomes a legitimate winning chance.

Miss Mayflower also needs to be respected, she was a slick 29.50 Sandown Park winner in March and she has also won over this track and trip previously.

Very tough race but it appears that Mo Keeping is drawn to get a clear run early and if he finds the top he should be able to set up a race winning lead mid race. He is blessed with a heap of talent but he can make a few mistakes at box rise, however it is hard to ignore the sizzling 25.08 Ballarat win he posted back in March.

Champer Bale is drawn to hold them out and she should give a great sight, she has been placed in two of three here and she has scored some fast wins at Cranbourne over this distance range in her career to date.

Ulala Bale is the run on type in the event and she is a must for your exotic bets. She has been placed in three of four here and with the abundance of speed underneath she should get the run of the race.

Dark Jameson also has some claims, he can be a little unreliable in the early stages but he did power to the line in his recent 30.43 victory here and with a clear run he is capable of going much faster.

Dzeko is a classy stayer when on song and she looks well placed in the wide draw. Last time out she exited the pink draw and she blew her rivals away with a blistering 41.81 Sandown Park win. If she can avoid crowding in the first 50-metres she should prove too good for her rivals. She was beaten in her only try here but that was under handicap conditions and she never really got a chance to get balanced up.

Unix Bale led for a long way here last week and she should lead them up again, she is getting stronger with every run over this distance range and she should continue to improve.

Love Affair has a great record over this track and trip and she is much better than her form reads. She is dropping considerably in class and she could be the value in the event.

Blonde Oasis must be included in your quaddies, she is drawn to settle in the top two and she was far from disgraced in her effort over this journey back in March.

Amaro Bale is a bit underrated but he has been racing in great style of late and with a clean getaway he should be leading all the way. Three starts back he pinged the lids at Sandown and went through the first marker in a low flying 5.00 before stopping the clock in impressive 29.51 overall. If he can reproduce that type of effort he should be making every post a winner.

Ikaku Bale can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting his talent. He has won over this trip in an eye popping 29.60 and a repeat of that would see him win, however his poor box manners are a concern. If he goes around at silly odds he may be worth a saver bet.

Dyna Quirk has a great record here and he is capable of just about anything on his night, he has average beginners drawn all around him tonight so he should be afforded a clear run in the early stages.

Aristotle Bale rounds out the chances, he posted his sizzling 29.84 PB here from this draw and if he gets across and leads he will definitely give them something to catch.

Kiss Me Ketut will appreciate the drop in class and he showed a return to form with a top placing at Warragul on Tuesday over 400-metres. He got burnt off mid race in that event but he hit the line well and that would suggest that he is better suited to this journey. He has a great record here and in a race which lacks genuine early speed he should get every chance to cross them in the early stages.

Crackerjack Rose is a track specialist and like the favourite she is dropping a little in class. She has the speed to settle in the top two early and if the pink finds early bother I am expecting her to capitalise and she might steal the prize.

Dyna Fatbob is never far away in these types of races and he is suited to the rails draw, he doesn’t possess great early speed but he does have a good mid race burst and he might sneak into some minor money.

Charleston could be the value, he is better than his recent form reads and he has been placed in three of four over this track and trip, the box draw won’t help but there isn’t a lot of speed drawn around him.

Lamia Bale is normally a very good beginner and if she steps well tonight she should be able to hold out Crackerjack Max early and that should be enough for her to score. Two starts back she destroyed a classy lineup at Wentworth Park in 29.90 and she is better suited back to this track. If you go back through her form, it’s worth noting that she was probably a half a length off crossing to the lead in the Australian Cup and that would have seen her win, so that highlights her class and she should be winning tonight.

Xtreme Knocka is better suited to a rails draw but he can show early speed and if he steps on terms he should be able to carve across and settle in the top three early and that is close enough for him to make an impact.

Crackerjack Max should follow Lamia Bale across in the early stages and he should settle in a prominent position. He will need to lead to win but if he doesn’t lead he can still hold on for a place.

Repayments is the only other winning prospect, he is unbeaten here in four tries and he just needs an ounce of luck in the early stages to feature.

Kiltah Magic returned to her brilliant best at Sandown Park last time with a brilliant 34.14 victory and if she can bring that form here she should be winning. She is normally a very reliable beginner and although she can move wide through the corners, she should be afforded a clear run because these isn’t a lot of speed on her outside. There are a couple of handy ones in this event so you might get around the $3.50 mark with William Hill.

Wind Whistler is well placed in the wide draw and he has been placed in three of four over this track and trip. He will probably get posted a little wide early but he is very strong and he should finish in the top three.

Zipping Geoff comes here with strong NSW staying form and he should make an impact, the draw doesn’t help tonight but if he can avoid bother at the first turn he should be right in the mix.

Polly Bale must also be respected, she has the good draw and she is highly talented on her night.

Targaryen is blessed with explosive early speed and he has a great record here. The draw doesn’t help tonight but he has a slow beginner on his inside so if he can step on terms he should be able to out muster the inside division and then find the lead at the first turn. Three starts back he beat the classy Ikaku Bale at Sandown in 29.57 and if he can reproduce that type of effort he should be winning.

Fever Pitch has won seven of 11 to date and all of those wins have been in very fast times. He should be able to follow the five across in the run to the first turn and it should be a great match race between the two of them.

Zabimaru Bale is the run on type in the event and he must be included in your exotic bets, he has won four of 12 here and he is much better than his recent form reads.

Memphis Jookin’ was a solid 30.18 winner here two runs back and he isn’t without a chance.

Gaucho turned in an enormous effort to score at Shepparton last time and he appears drawn to win with ease tonight. He is blessed with an explosive turn of foot and with an even getaway he should be able to push through and assume control at the first bend. If he does find the top early I’m expecting him to get down to around the 29.80 mark.

Rocka Hula Baby is a class act and she has scored some commanding wins in recent weeks, I would prefer her drawn closer to the inside but she is quite strong so she is able to overcome some difficulties in running.

Stompin’ is better than his form reads and after two runs from a spell he should be ready to show his best, he might go around at very big odds tonight so he could be worth a saver bet.

Oakvale Flyer rounds out the chances, she is never far away in this company and she will be very strong in the run to the line.

Ima Misha Doll is a reliable beginner and she should make up for her luckless effort here last week. There isn’t a whole lot of speed drawn out wide so if she steps cleanly she will get every chance to drive through and assume control. She has scored some strong Geelong wins in her brief career so she should be able to post a more than competitive time overall.

Kenju Bale should follow the three across in the early stages and she turned in a strong effort when placed here last time. She has an empty draw on her outside so she should be afforded a clear passage in the early stages.

Influential Miss was very unlucky here on Wednesday and she should run an improved race. She is a little risky at box rise but if she can balance up in the first three early she should be right there at the end.
