Aphorism is an exciting prospect and he really caught the eye when scoring at Bulli two runs back in 26.38. On that occasion he showed a brilliant turn of foot after box rise and he beat the highly-talented Wuxi quite comfortably. The awkward draw is a small concern, but he should have the speed to get across and if he leads he should win.

Adam Handler is normally a reliable beginner and he comes to Wentworth Park with some strong Victorian metropolitan form. He should be able to settle in the top two early and he should finish in the money. Zipping Spike is the run on type in the event and if he can avoid bother at the first turn he should be able to make an impact. He is clearly better suited to a longer journey but he has a big finish and he could be a good anchor for second and third in your exotics. Still Searchin’ rounds out the chances, she was recently placed in the Dubbo Cup Final and she appears to be getting better with every start.

Good Odds Regina is absolutely flying at present, having won five of her past six starts and all of those victories have been in impressive times. The box draw is a bit of a disadvantage tonight, but she normally pings the lids so with a clean getaway she should roll to the early lead and take some running down. This is a step up in class tonight, but I think she is up to the challenge.

Winsome Senor is a super talent when on song and he should follow the favourite across in the early stages. Two starts back he destroyed a classy lineup when winning at Maitland in a blistering 31.60. White Label must also be respected, he scored a strong and fast win here in April in 29.86 and if he can settle in the first half of the field he should make the favourite work hard for victory. Priceless and Ella Has Class round out the chances, both have good speed but they are likely to get crossed in the early stages so place claims appear best.

I’m Pedro is in rare form at present and with a clean getaway he should be able to notch up the hat-trick of wins. Two starts back he powered to the line and posted a slick 29.79 and a repeat of that effort should be enough to score, the only concern tonight is that he has a keen railer in Rue De Kahn drawn on his outside, so he will need to do everything right at box rise.

Rue De Kahn is the clear and obvious danger, she too has been in great form of late and she is armed with both early speed and strength. I dont think she can cross the red tonight so she might have to settle for the quinella spot. Wuxi rounds out the serious winning hopes, two starts back she caught the eye with a blistering 29.68 win here and a repeat of that would see her be right in the mix, however she is very inconsistent so she would need to be very good odds to back her. Too A Tee has strong place claims, he is very consistent and he should get a very clear run early from the pink draw.

My Boy Snoop is well placed in the wider draw and if he can step cleanly he should blow them away. He can be very hard to follow at times but he does race very well here and this is one of the weakest races he has contested for a while. He will need some luck early, but if he can balance up in the top three he should get the cash.

Lemon Tree Girl looks the likely leader and she should give a great sight. Two starts back she beat the classy Uno Suzie here in 30.14, the track was heavy that night so the time is much better than it appears. Ritza Raider has had six runs from a spell now and he has continued to improve with every run and last week he really caught the eye when he charged to the line. From the red he should settle in a fairly prominent spot and he may prove hard to hold out. Kurmond Goddess must be respected, she blew here rivals away when winning here two runs back in 29.96 and with some luck in running she can feature.

Smooth Number is an honest stayer and he should be in the mix for a long way tonight. This is one of the weakest races he has contested for a while and he should be able to settle just behind the red in the early stages. He is stronger than most of these so he should take over mid race and power to the line.

Dusty Moonshine has always promised to be a mighty stayer but she has never really gone to the level that we expected. She is still more than handy and if she gets across without too much trouble she should be fighting out the finish. She resumed from a spell with a strong Nowra placing over 630m and that should have her primed for this assignment. Mr. Corsair and Stargate System are the two run on types in the event, I don’t think either can win but it might be worth anchoring them for third and fourth in your exotic bets. Amy Parker will be well fancied but she is a risk, this is a big rise in class for her and she will need to lead clearly to win.

La Grand Logie was recently placed in the Maitland Cup Final and he followed that effort up with a top 29.97 victory here. With a wide runner drawn directly on his outside I’m expecting him to roll to the early lead and as they shuffle up at the first bend he should be able to dash away mid-race. This is a strong race so he should be nice odds but I give him a fair dinkum chance of winning.

Zipping Carter won from this draw four runs back and on that occasion he posted a blistering 29.64 here. If he can step on terms he should be able to push through at the first bend and hold a top four spot as they head for the back. He is very strong in the run to the line and a top three finish is on the cards. Zipping Midge has early speed and she is suited to the wide, she returned to form with a top 29.81 win here last time and she should be in the mix. Opus Forte is the fastest chaser in the race and he is obviously a chance, my only concern with him is that he will try and get off the track in the early stages and he may bump with Chica Destacada.

Dark Magnum is a faultless beginner and he has won three on the trot in sizzling fashion. His two Dapto wins were in ridiculously fast times and he followed those efforts up with a top 29.90 win here. It was his first look at the track here last time so if he lands on the lure again I would expect him to shave a couple of lengths off that time.

Zipping Saxon is a beast and the wide draw should suit, he has been placed in eight of nine here and he has put a scorching 29.66 on the board in a trial. If he avoids bother at the first bend he should make a big impact. Winsome Jacko returned to form with a strong 30.19 win here last week and he should be thereabouts again, he is still lacking confidence but from the red he should get every chance to make an impact.

Dyna Nico has always done her best racing around this circuit and she was recently placed in the final of the Group One Golden Easter Egg. She is normally a faultless beginner and she has posted a sizzling 29.55 here. There is a little bit of speed drawn around her tonight but if she steps away she should have the speed to cross and lead and I don’t think they can reel her in if she finds the top.

Zipping Abby is a very fast chaser when on her game and she should be suited to the wider draw, she turned in a monster effort to score in her heat and I would expect her to settle a lot closer to the speed tonight from her favourable draw. Spring Leaf is another who scorches around this circuit, with Dyna Nico drawn on her outside she will need some luck early but if she gets it she will take a power of beating. Elfen Bale made her Wentworth Park debut last week with a strong 29.90 win and with a clear run she should be able to go a lot quicker, if she can hold them out she will prove very hard to reel in.

Northernette is a reliable beginner and she caught the eye with a powerful 22.99 Gosford win last time. She is yet to win here in four tries but she has raced in strong company previously and she appears to be very well graded in this event. She will be around the $3 mark and that appears to be good value.

Queen Marina hit the line solidly when placed here last week and she should run a big race again, she will get back early but if the gaps open mid race she will prove hard to hold out. Silent Crash comes to town with dazzling 400 metres form at Bulli and he should be in the mix for a long way, the last 40m is a concern but this isn’t an overly strong race.

Tough race to finish but if the speedy Syndicate can step away cleanly he should prove hard to reel in. There isn’t a lot of speed around him so if he gets away he should be able to get a fairly cheap lead, he has posted solid times at Dapto previously and this looks a really winnable race for him.

Jaxon Rulz has struggled in his two Wentworth Park runs of late but he is much better than that and he should run a big race. He has scored some blistering wins at Bulli and if he can bring that form to town he will be right in the mix. Mizzou Tiger is dropping in class and he could be the value, if he can avoid trouble at the first bend he will be very strong in the run to the line.
