Lady Abigail turned in a great performance when having her first look at the track last week and she would have derived a lot of benefit from that run. The box draw hasn't done her any favours but she does muster well and she will be very strong in the run home.

Georgina is much better than her recent form reads and if she can step cleanly she should put herself into contention early in the race, if you go back through her form she does have a slick 30.46 Ipswich win to her credit.

Spookie's Gift has shown an enormous amount of talent in his brief career and if he gets a clear run early he will take a power of beating, he is still learning and he will continue to get better.

Raging Thunder hasn't had much luck since his impressive 30.43 Lismore win and he could be the value in the event, he should get room to muster speed in the early stages and I'm certain he would have trialled at the track.

Good race and I'm going to give the edge to the red Renouf's Magic, last time out he was smart to begin and he chased extremely hard when going down narrowly in good time. From the red he should be able to hold the early lead and I think they will have their work cut out reeling him in.

Velvet Rumble blew away her rivals when scoring a devastating 24.03 Lismore win last time and if she handles the first bend she will prove hard to hold out.

Elusive Desire is the interesting runner, he has had little luck in his efforts here but he has shown a lot of talent at Lismore and if he can get some room early he might run a big race at nice odds.

Midnight Tammy rounds out the chances, she was a slick 30.17 winner here two runs back and she is in the capable hands of Tony Brett, so I would expect her to continue to improve with more racing.

Buenos Cloud has been racing in very consistent style here of late and with a clean getaway he should get every chance to lead throughout. Last time out he showed great mid race pace and was just held out by the highly talented Fabulous Storm, if he can reproduce that effort he will figure in the finish.

Don't Go Quietly has the good draw and he is getting close to another win, he is likely to settle midfield but he is very strong and he only needs a few gaps mid race and he will be right in the mix.

Mr. Brand is another run on type and he has been placed in six of eight over this journey, he has turned in some fantastic performances of late and he can feature with some luck at the first turn.

Lotus Blossom is a front runner and she should match motors with Buenos Cloud for most of the trip, her last 40m isn't great but she should hold on for a place.

Top Four: 4 – 1 – 5 – 6

10GRIN AND WIN386630.30Tony Zammit

Messidonna Cloud was smartly placed from this draw last week and if he steps on terms he should have sufficient speed to hold them out and make every post a winner. Another reason I'm very on this one is the fact that he has Grim Creeper drawn directly on his outside, he is normally a very slow beginner and he will be looking to move wide as they head into the first turn.

Marlisa will settle in the top three early and she caught the eye when winning at Ipswich last time in a zippy 30.56. She hasn't run much time in her two wins here but she appears to have improved a bit so I would expect her to get down to the 30.10 mark with a clear run.

Mister To Us is the run on type in the event, he has won five of 13 over this journey and he is armed with an almighty finish, I dont think he will win but he could be a great anchor for second and third in your exotics.

Stella Nights will be well supported and she is an obvious chance, she has been missing it away of late so with a better getaway tonight she should be able to figure in the finish.

Spanish Queen is aiming for a hat trick of wins over this track and trip and I think she is well placed to do it. With the speedy Summer's Bug drawn underneath, she should get a nice cart across in the early stages and she should then be able to burn them off mid race. She continues to improve on the clock with every run here so it wouldn't surprise me to see her go sub 30 seconds.

Tear Away Size is a seriously fast chaser when given a clear run and if she can cross from the outside they won't know which way she went. I'm not putting her on top because she is desperate for the inside and she is going to need a lot of things to go her way from box seven.

Abby's Fantasy is drawn to hold a prominent spot early and she is never far away over this trip, whilst Gumlow Star also represents some value, her recent runs here haven't been too bad and she is capable of matching it with this lot.

Top Four: 4 – 7 – 1 – 5

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Spanish Queen

Bon Yeo is a promising type and he continues to get better with every start. He has been steaming home over the 520m journey here of late and he gives every indication that he will have no trouble covering the extra distance. There is a bit of speed drawn underneath him so he should be able to lob onto the rail early and then make a strong move mid race.

Dzeko is perfectly placed in the wide draw and she motored home when placed here last week in fast time, she is likely to get back again in the early stages but she has a big engine and she will run all day.

Good Call Paul will start favourite and rightly so after scoring a blistering 29.76 win here, he is obviously a winning hope but he got knocked around last time out and I can see that happening again from the middle pin.

Jonathon's Hope is drawn to settle in the top two and he should run a cheeky race.

Top Four: 4 – 7 – 5 – 1

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Bon Yeo and Dzeko

Great race and we get to see the return of Tony Brett's star sprinter Flash Reality. It's not an easy assignment for him first up but I'm sure connections have him primed for a bold showing. He has a great record here having won 11 of 15 and his 29.58 PB is eye popping.

Gunspeed is drawn to hold a forward spot early and he is capable of running time when on the bunny. His most recent efforts haven't been flashy but I would expect him to improve from the good draw.

Le Sirenuse was very unlucky in a heat of the Paws Of Thunder last time out and if she pings the lids she can put the heat on the favourite for most of the trip.

I think the value in the race could be Winged Elite, he turned in a strong effort when placed here last week and he could be a nice place bet again.

Good final and I think the Victorian Ralphy Cinel can run a big race tonight, last week he turned in a strong performance when placed here over 520m and he should have derived a lot of benefit from that run. Tonight I am expecting him to pounce on the early lead and he should make every post a winner.

Hougenie has been placed in her past five starts over this journey and she shouldn't be too far away again, she has been beginning well of late and she should go with Ralphy Cinel for most of the journey.

Kidatee Croc has won three on the trot and the most recent victory was here in a blistering 34.82, tonight's race is a bit harder but he should be up for the challenge.

Regal Lauryn is suitably drawn out wide and if she pings she will blow them away, the only concern with her is that she can bomb the start at times.

Top Four: 4 – 5 – 1 – 7

What A Thursday has been racing in much stronger company of late over 600m and she should be suited by the drop back in distance. Tonight she has no speed at all drawn on her outside and if she can step cleanly she should have enough speed to drive through and take up the early lead, she is very strong in the run to the line and this really looks her race.

Cute To Boot powered home to score here last week in 30.55 and she is a great chance again, I'm a tad worried she might get too far back early, so maybe best to anchor her for second and third in the exotics.

Fred Sealey is never far away in this company and he showed signs of his best form when placed here last week.

Big Dac rounds out the chances, he is suited to a wide draw and he scored a commanding 22.98 win here on Sunday over the 395m journey.

Tough race to finish but I think we can find some value with Interrogated. Since coming from NSW he has been placed in two of his three tries here and he is overdue for a change of luck. With no speed drawn around him tonight he should be able to assume control soon after box rise and he may prove too strong for this lot.

Made That Way was far from disgraced when he finished just outside the placings here last time and he will be suited by the drop in class, if he can step cleanly he can hold a forward spot early and he should run a nice race at each way odds.

Remember Me Rose doesn't have flashy form but she is very strong and from the rails draw she may be able to settle a bit closer to the speed than normal.
