8NORTHERNETTE551230.25Kenneth Burnett

Northernette is blessed with smart early speed and she gave a great sight when placed over this trip last week. Two starts back she beat a handy lineup at Dapto and posted a very impressive 29.94. Last week in her placing she appeared to get a little tired in the run home, she should be better for that run and I would expect her to hit the line a little better tonight.

Chloe’s Hand is a faultless beginner and she should match motors with the pink for most of the tripp Her last 50-metres is always a concern but she appeared to hit the line well enough here last week.

Boojerooma has been solidly placed in her two tries here to date and she should be in the mix again, she has been slow to begin in those two runs and she is capable of stepping a lot better. If she does so tonight she could get the cash at solid odds.

My Lady Day is likely to start favourite and there is no doubting her talent, however she can make a lot of mistakes in her races so she will need a few things to go her way in the early stages.

8BLUE’S REVIVAL525429.94John Little

To A Tee is facing a significant drop in class tonight and with a clear run in the first 50-metres he should be getting the cash. He has a couple of slow beginners drawn on his outside so he should get every chance to drive through in the early stages and with a clear passage he should be going around the 29.90 mark and that is more than enough to win a race like this.

Eddard Stark has the good draw and he should make up for his luckless effort here last week, he is armed with solid early speed and he should be in the top two as they head for the back straight.

Blue’s Revival must be respected, he has the speed to cross and he does look the likely leader. His last 50-metres isn’t great but this is one of the weakest races he has contested for a while so he might just steal the event.

Reservoir Time comes her with strong provincial form and she can show great early speed, her box manners can sometimes be unreliable but she looks suited in this company.

8BOOMING BENNETT586829.83Kim Mulrine

I’m Pedro is dropping in class tonight and he should be returning to the winners list. He has won three races over this trip previously and he does own a very smart 29.75 PB. If he can step cleanly he should be able to find the top and there is no chance they will reel him in.

Bass Louder has the speed to cross I’m Pedro and if he does find the lead he will prove hard to reel in. He has won three of his past four starts and those three wins were at Bathurst and he broke the track record in that sequence.

Gardice is the interesting runner, he is resuming after a three month spell, however when last in work he did show a tremendous amount of talent and if he is fit he should run a big race.

Schooner Doll rounds out the genuine winning chances, he can ping the lids and he should be in the mix for a long way.

Miss Sueko can be hard to follow at times but she has come up with a suitable draw and from the red she should get every chance to lead from go to whoa. She has won here previously in a sizzling 29.67 and if she can reproduce that type of run she will be winning. She has been a little costly in recent weeks but this is a drop in class for her so there should be no excuses tonight.

Watto Lotto is armed with a powerful finish and he has won two of his past three here in good style. He is better suited to a rails draw but he has good track sense and he is capable of overcoming some difficulties in running.

Uno Suzie scored a commanding 30.03 win here two runs back and she should give a great sight again, she has slow beginners drawn on her outside so she should be afforded all the breaks in the early stages.

Scarp Missile is another speedy chaser who is racing I good fashion, she will need to lead to win but even if she doesn’t lead she can still hold on for a place.

Good quality race and it’s hard to look past champion stayer Space Star. He is racing in devastating style at present and he is capable of leading or coming from off the speed in his races. Last time out he overcame difficulties in the early stages to beat Lady Toy here in 42.09 on a wet track and if he makes it through the first turn safely he should be winning.

Zipping Felix was third in that race with Lady Toy and his effort was also huge, he is likely to be giving Space Star too big of a head start but he should be running home into the quinella spot.

Sweet It Is must always be respected in these types of races and after two runs from a spell she should be ready to fire. She loves racing over this track and trip and from the pink draw she should get a fairly clear passage in the early stages.

Mobius is the interesting runner, she is making her staying debut but her SA form is strong and she could run a cheeky race at massive odds.

This is clearly the weaker of the two heats and it’s hard to look past the explosive Mullaway. Last time out he destroyed a quality lineup at Albion Park over 600-metres and in the process he broke a long standing track record. From the two draw tonight he should be able to trail Lillycette in the early stages and I would expect him to pass her mid race and then go on to score.

Lillycette should hold the early lead from the red and she will give a great sight. Two starts back she impressed with a top placing here behind Zipping Felix, if she can reproduce that type of effort she will run a bottler.

Zipping Maggie could be the value, she loves racing over this track and trip and she showed good signs two starts back when placed behind the champ Space Sta. She has the speed to settle in the top two or three early and she will be strong in the run to the line.

Tuavasa Shek rounds out the chances, he is well drawn out wide and he has won six of his past eight starts.

Top Four: 2 – 1 – 5 – 6

Passenger has come up with the good draw and he returned to form last week with a strong 30.03 heat win. From the red he should be able to push through and settle in the top two and he should then prove too strong in the run home.

Queen Esther is a classy veteran and she showed last week that she is still more than capable with a top 30.14 heat win. There is a bit of speed in this event but if she can step cleanly she will have enough speed to find the top early and, if so, she will then prove hard to reel in.

Star Torana has a terrific record here and she was a tad unlucky here last week. If she can avoid early bother she should be running home at the end and she is a must for your exotic bets.

Mr. Writer is another who has strong claims, he caught the eye with a smart 29.98 heat win and he is also capable of showing very good early speed.

Are Jip can be very unreliable and costly at times but there is no doubting his tremendous ability and he appears drawn to get all the breaks tonight. He has a slow beginner drawn directly on his outside, so that should allow him enough room as he moves right soon after box rise. His early sectionals are quite good when given a clear run and I can see him leading from go to whoa in this event.

Chica Destacada is all class when on song but she has been a little disappointing in recent months. She has had four weeks off so she should be nice and fresh and therefore she should be able to show a lot more early dash. If she is at her best she will definitely be in the mix.

Zipping Midge was very strong in the run home last week when scoring in 29.81 and she must be respected again. If she can hold out the outside division she should get every chance to make an impact.

Knight Sprite is racing well and he is a chance, however this is a step up in class for him so maybe place claims appears best.

Miss Pocano is a faultless beginner and she runs her best races when she can lead an dictate the terms. There is very little early speed in this event so she should be able to find the top easily and she might be able to build up a race winning lead mid race. She should be around the $4.50 mark with William Hill and that is great value.

Jaxon Rulz has scored some brilliant Bulli wins of late and he deserves a crack at Metro class. He is normally a good beginner and he can muster speed quite well. If he can settle within three or so of Miss Pocano he should make it very interesting as they approach the line.

Evidence is the only other genuine winning hope, he has been placed in four of six over this trip and he has been racing in strong company of late. He will need some luck from the wide draw but if he gets it he becomes a serious chance.

Wuxi is much better than her recent form indicates and she looks well placed in this class. She has been placed in three of seven here and although her box manners aren’t great she is armed with a brilliant turn of foot. With a clear run in the first 40-metres she should be able to roll to the early lead and she will prove too zippy for her rivals.

Oban is probably better suited to a wider draw but this is a drop in class for her and she has been placed in seven of 15 here. She is very strong in the run home and if she can balance up in the top three or four she should be there at the end.

Billysoar is more than capable on his night and he turned in a top performance when placed at Richmond two runs back, he will need some luck from the awkward draw but he may be worth a saver bet if he is over the odds.

Isaac Sannette is the run on type in the event and he could be worth anchoring for third and fourth in your exotic bets.
