8DYNA SYNCH (NSW)[5]4413130.45(3)J Hunt (Avalon)

Erza Allen is an exciting talent and she returned to form with a brilliant 30.18 heat win here last week. In her heat she showed tremendous early speed and if she can reproduce similar sections she should have no trouble leading throughout. Her heat time was pretty handy but I think under the right conditions she can go much faster and a sub 30 second run is on the cards.

Ennis Bale is a super consistent chaser and he has been placed in seven of eight tries over this journey with three of those efforts being wins. He has slow beginners drawn either side tonight and he should get a clear run early. He also has the ability to lead or come from behind in his races. Dyna Synch is a highly promising type and he appears to be getting better with every run. He will get back in the early stages but he has great track sense and he only needs an ounce of luck to feature.

Maximum Lil took a while to find her form when she resumed from a spell, however she showed she was back to her brilliant best when placed behind Astronomic here last week. She is a very reliable beginner and although she has a flat spot mid race she hits the line quite strongly and has given every indication that the 600m trip will suit. She really should get a cheap lead and she may prove too zippy for these.

Dyna Orion powered to the line when scoring at Cranbourne recently in 30.54 and from the red draw he should get every chance. He hasn’t experienced a lot of luck in his three tries over this trip previously but he should be able to settle a lot closer to the speed and he will make an impact on the scoreboard. Lady Toy will get a long way back in the early stages but she will run all day and I would expect her to run home into third or fourth spot.

9HARDEN BALE (NSW)[5]Res.7455230.96(3)C Burton (Euroa)

Mepunga Moss is a lid pinger and she tends to like racing over this track and trip. She did a lot of racing early in her career here and she won three of her first five tries here. Her PB 30.34 isn’t too flashy but she is a much faster chaser this time around and she should be able to go sub 30 seconds nowadays.

War Room comes here with very strong NSW form and if he can handle the track at his first look he should make a big impact. He showed smart early speed in his slick 30.02 Bathurst win and that type of effort would see him play a part. Waymore’s Blues hasn’t experienced a lot of luck in his most recent efforts and if he can get a clear run early he should give a great sight. Zell Bale is back in form but he is better suited to a wider draw.

8DYNA FULCRUM (NSW)[5]2533330.13(3)J Hunt (Avalon)

Blinder had been a little disappointing, however she showed signs she is almost back to her best when placed at Geelong last time over 520m. She normally does her best racing when on the bunny but after a steady beginning she balanced up in third spot and stayed in touch with the top two in the run to the line. Tonight I am anticipating that she will get across early and she may just steal the prize.

Ruff Cut Diamond ran the hands off the clock at Sandown last time when posting a blistering 29.26 win and that form is hard to ignore. The only knock on her tonight is that she is drawn poorly in the middle and with some pace drawn on her outside she can’t afford to make too many mistakes early. Dyna Fulcrum rarely runs a bad race here and he should get a nice cart across in the early stages. He struggles to win these days but he is always a chance to run a drum.

Top Four: 7 – 4 – 8 – 5

8LITTLE RED (NSW)[5]61517NBTR Britton (Lara)

Very open event and I think I have found some value with Gold Affair Two. Her form at present doesn’t look too attractive but she has been racing against the likes of Xylia Allen and Dyna Perseus in recent times. She doesn’t meet anything near that type of calibre tonight and I think she should be able to get a cheap lead and now that she has had five runs since a spell she should strip much fitter.

Beks turned in a monster performance to score here last week in 43.15 and if he gets an ounce of luck in running he should be in the finish again. He has shown much better track sense in recent efforts and I think he should continue to improve in the coming months. Zipping Joe has the good draw and he beat gun stayer Dyna Willow here three runs back, he is likely to start a short priced favourite tonight and I think he can win but I wouldn’t be willing to take odds on about him.

8CROWDZA CAPTIVE [4]2311230.34(3)K King (Langwarrin)

Awesome Project has been racing in super form of late and it’s hard to see him being beaten in this event. From the red draw he should be able to fire through and lead at the first bend and from there on I would expect him to put a space in them. He has a PB here of 29.92 but I think if he can lead tonight a sub 29.80 run could be on the cards.

Crackerjack Rose turned in a great performance two runs back when placed behind Eliza Blanche at Cranbourne and a similar effort tonight should see her fill the quinella spot. She has won two of four over this trip and in two of those efforts she has gone 5.05 or faster to the first marker, that type of effort would see her just about lead tonight. Clone Your Own has a favourable wide draw and if he can get away on terms he should be in the finish, whilst Spring Leaf loves racing here and she has the ability to cause a boil over.

Looks to be a very skinny quaddie tonight as we get see the explosive My Bro Fabio strut his stuff in this event. In recent weeks at Sandown he has turned in two breathtaking performances when winning over the 595m journey. Both times he has been steady to begin but he has worked his way through the field and powered to the line when scoring in 33.94 and 34.01 respectively, with an ounce of luck early he should get the prize quite easily.

Dyna Kayla looks the obvious and only danger, she is unbeaten over this trip and she has a very slick 34.24 PB. If she can ping the lids and find the early lead she will definitely make the favourite work hard for victory. Rumero Reason has won three of seven here and he is aiming for a hat trick of wins, I don’t think he can win tonight but he can run home into a place.

Marcus Joe has a fabulous record over this journey and he was desperately unlucky in his heat last week. Once again he hasn’t been treated well with the box draw but he has enough natural early speed to avoid trouble as they charge for the first bend. It’s a very open race but at around the $4 fixed mark I think he is as good a chance as any and is nice over’s.

Crackerjack Dak has the favourable draw and he too loves racing at this track. From the red I would expect him to punch through at the first bend and hold the lead or at worst be sitting second as they head to the back straight. Dream It scored a blistering 29.84 heat win and he is always a chance in these type of events, the only knock on him is that he doesn’t like to be crowded and he can be slow to begin at times. Nockabout Aussie is a freakish talent and if he gets the right breaks he has the ability to cause a boil over.

I’m a big fan of Dyna Alchemist and although he has drawn poorly again I think he can get the job done. He has been desperately unlucky in his past four runs here but in those runs he has still managed to post two smart placings. His box manners aren’t great but he musters speed at a great rate and he should be in the top three as they negotiate the first turn.

Clearly Oakvale Destiny is the main danger and likely favourite, she has scored dominant wins at Cranbourne and Geelong in recent weeks and provided she can cross early she will make her presence felt. Lady Goldenpaw could be the surprise packet, he form of late has been poor but she is a reliable beginner and if she can land on the bunny she should be able to regain some much needed confidence. Ralphy Cinel has the good draw and if he doesn’t get shuffled back early he shouldn’t be too far away.

Shot To Bits is an enormous talent and he appears to be learning how to race, three starts ago he turned in a monster effort to score at Albion Park and then after a couple of months off he turned in a strong performance to be placed in his heat at Bendigo. He should have derived a lot of benefit from his first up effort and I think he can get a perfect sit behind the early leaders tonight. He will need a few things to go his way but if he gets some clear galloping room his opposition better look out.

Hold On Wincup has been racing in consistent style and he is drawn to probably hold the early lead. He makes his Meadows debut but he has posted some smart placings at Sandown Park in recent months. Reckless Brown is another front runner and if he happens to cross he may find himself with a big lead as they head off the back straight, whilst National Time should get plenty of room early from the pink draw and he is all class on his night.

8MY KINDA MUSIC (NSW)[5]31826FSHA Pringle (Yetholme)

Very tough race but I’ve decided to go with the early speed of My Kinda Music. She has been disappointing in two of her past three runs but tonight she has two very slow beginners drawn underneath her and she should get enough room early to muster speed and burn to the early lead. She has scored some blistering Wentworth Park wins in her brief career to date so if she leads the distance will not be a problem.

Dello Bale has loads of talent and he will be powering to the line, the only concern with him is that he is a keen railer and being a slow beginner who may have a few difficulties getting across. If he can find the fence without losing too much ground, all he needs is a few gaps to open and he will make a big impact. Oakvale Flyer will be well fancied and if she gets away cleanly she should be in the mix throughout.

Race 12 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 11:00PM

Fort Allen loves racing at this track and he is armed with sizzling early speed. If he can get away cleanly tonight he should be able to find the early lead and with the class drop he should be able to hold on for victory. His last 50m is always a concern but this is the weakest race he has contested for quite some time.

Kiltah Magic is a highly promising speedster and she looked ultra impressive when scoring at Sandown Park in 29.53, I feel she is a better chaser from an inside draw but if she can get the right breaks early she may just find herself in the mix as they head to the back straight. Fratelli Fresh is racing well and she should be afforded a clear run early, whilst Sprite Lee has been very unlucky of late and she has the ability to cause an upset.
