Smith And Wesson is a highly promising speedster and he should go one better tonight after being narrowly beaten here last week. He is normally a very good beginner but last week he was a tad slow early and he wasn’t able to lead. With a clean getaway tonight he should be able to lead from go to whoa.

Reen’s Fabian is a very fast chaser when given room early and he should get a nice cart across in the early stages. He hasn’t had a lot of luck in his most recent efforts but he has scored some sizzling wins at Sale over a similar journey. Hunter Rocks has a heap of talent and he should improve on his debut placing here last week, whilst Macca’s Sway broke through for a well deserved win at Horsham during the week in a smart 27.37.

Summer Wages has been racing in consistent fashion and with an even get away tonight he should return to the winners list, three starts ago he posted a strong 29.74 Sandown Park win and he has then followed that effort up with two handy Metro placings. He should have the speed to lead and he will prove too good for this lot.

Left Is Right was a top 30.24 debut winner here last month and on that occasion he posted a solid 5.14 to the first marker, a repeat of that effort would see him go with the favourite for quite a while. Almani Bruiser is showing plenty of promise and he looks to be a major player based on his impressive 29.74 Sandown Park win in early August. Spreading Rumours rounds out the winning hopes, he can be hard to follow at times but he does have a lot of talent, if he doesn’t get crowded by the five in the early stages he can feature.

Feikuai Zack is very hit or miss early but he is extremely talented when he hits and I’m tipping him to ping the lids tonight. Four starts ago he scored a commanding 30.12 win here and he has since been placed on two occasions here in strong company. There is a fair bit of depth in this event but if he does everything right early he can salute at nice odds.

Kerrigan Bale has the class edge and she beat a good line-up when scoring at Sandown Park in 29.63 recently. She too can be unreliable early but she has a consistent record here having been placed in six of her nine tries. Allen Gravion is the in form chaser but the box draw is a big concern for him, if he gets some room in the first 50m he should be right in the mix at the end.

Lady Toy has been racing in dazzling style of late and although she is better suited to a longer journey she should still prove too good. Last week she settled much closer to the speed than she normally would and from there on she was always going to win her heat, from the two box she should be able to rail up and settle fairly close again.

Tweak looked impressive when posting a strong 34.67 heat win and he should be able to find the early lead again, he appeared to be tiring late in the race last week, so he should be better for the run. Galloping Rocky has the good draw and she is never far away in her races. From the red she should be able to settle in the top three and she is a must for your exotic bets.

8ZIPPING MAGGIE (NSW)[4]1111143.38(5)P Dapiran (Northwood)

The great Xylia Allen and Zipping Maggie are set to do battle again and I think the Champ can turn the tables on Zipping Maggie. Last week Xylia Allen missed the kick and was never able to put any pressure on Maggie at Wentworth Park, tonight I would expect her to begin a lot better tonight and she will be running time on the bunny.

Obviously Zipping Maggie is the second pick, she has won five on the trot and in four of those wins she has posted sizzling times, if she crosses from the pink tonight she will make the favourite work overtime again. Bailey Rose has been racing well over the staying journey and she will continue to improve with more racing. Zell Bale is the interesting runner, he has good form over the middle distance journey and he should be on the speed for a long way. This is a big ask at his first staying try but if he can hold the early lead he may be able to hold on for a place.

Top Four: 4 – 8 – 3 – 1

10DYNA KEITARO (NSW)[5]Res.47723NBTT Womann (Lara)

Allen Zentax was very unlucky at Ballarat during the week in a strong field and from the good draw tonight he should be able to make amends. I expect the red to hold the early lead and that should allow him to drive through at the first turn and hold a prominent position. He has won here previously in a slick 30.03 and a repeat of that run would see him roar away with a commanding victory.

Fabio is aiming for his fifth victory in a row and if he can cross from the pink he will give himself every chance, he is expected to start a short price favourite and I think he is a little bit of a risk. There is a fair bit of early speed in this race and he is not going to have things his own way in the first 50m. Heidi Go Seek has been struggling in recent months but this is one of the weakest events she has contested for a while, if she gets some room in the initial stages she should be right in the mix.

Quality line-up and I am going to give the edge to the up and coming star Shot To Bits. Last week he made his staying debut and he scored a strong victory in a handicap event. I expect that he will have derived a lot of benefit from that run and he should be even better this week. With Sweet It Is in the event, you are likely to get big over’s about this one.

Sweet It Is looks the clear danger and she is the reigning National Distance Champion, however her record here isn’t that great and she is going to be giving them an almighty head start. Zipping Rory has been racing well without winning of late and he has the ability to ping the lids on occasions. He is likely to be big over’s in this event also and he is definitely worth a saver bet.

Buckle Up Mason is a track specialist and after winning here last week in 30 flat it’s very hard to look past him. This event is much weaker than last week’s race and if he can reproduce his 5.07 to the first marker he should be able to make every post a winner.

Lamia Bale caught the eye with a strong 29.64 Sandown Park win last time and she has won here previously in a speedy 30.00. She has been missing the kick of late but I am expecting her to improve her box manners tonight. Tick Bale has been racing without luck in recent times and he should show some improvement from the red draw. He has won four of 11 here and the draw should allow him to settle much closer to the early speed tonight.

Duchess Bale returned to form with a sizzling 34.21 Sandown Park win last week and she appears set to make it two in a row. She normally pings the lids and with a slow beginner drawn underneath she should be able to find the rail quite easily. Eight of her 13 career wins have been from inside draws so all the stats point to her winning.

Echelonic Action has won two of his past three here and he is drawn to get a nice sit in the early stages, I dont think he can reel the favourite in but he should run home into the quinella spot. Speed Series is the interesting runner, he has a good record here over 525m and he should put a lot of pressure on Duchess Bale for most of the trip. Gemstone Jack is a Tasmanian visitor and he is more than capable when on song, he might be a nice place bet at big odds.

Bremer is much better than his recent form reads and he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. He has been missing the kick and finding trouble soon after the start in recent times and with a slow beginners drawn either side I expect that he will get more room in the early stages here.

Simply Cruzin is drawn to lead for a long way and he was far from disgraced when placed at Sandown Park in his 500m debut. He should have derived a lot of benefit from that run and I would expect him to hit the line much better. Fleetwood Storm was an impressive 30.30 winner here two runs back and he is showing loads of promise, whilst Turbine is more than capable but he will need some luck as he may struggle to cross from the wide draw.

Rick Fern turned in a massive effort at Shepparton two runs back and he appears well graded in this event. He is quite a reliable beginner and with his turn of foot I can easily see him crossing in the first 50m. He has won over 595m previously so if he does find the lead in the early stages he is going to take a power of beating.

Sig Sauer scored a sizzling 29.59 Sandown Park win recently and if he gets some room early he should be right in the mix. Quicker Than Al is always thereabouts but he struggles to win, with seven placings in 11 tries here, I would expect him to finish in the minor money again. Victoria Pledge is a classy provincial chaser and from the good draw she may cause an upset, she has struggled here in the past but her early speed always makes her a factor in these races.

Race 12 – 525M Grade 5 – 11:00PM

Tough race to finish but the promising Lonesome Jozza appears to have the edge. In mid August he made his debut and on that occasion he posted a solid 30.47 win here when leading all the way. If he can reproduce that effort, that should be enough for him to score.

Viral Bale has a heap of talent but he tends to do a lot wrong. If he can avoid trouble in the first 50m he should be right in the finish. Thor Bale is racing consistently and he can muster pace very quickly in his races, with a slow beginner on his outside he should get every chance to settle in a prominent position. Jingellic rounds out the chances, I dont think she can win the race but she may be able to run on into the minor money.
