Renouf’s Magic has had little luck since his impressive debut win here and with a clean getaway tonight he should be able to return to the winner’s list. He is armed with blinding early speed and this race seems to lack early pace. He meets a handy one in Swift Pirate but I expect that he will be a long way in front of him mid-race.

Swift Pirate powered to the line in his recent 30.05 and with an ounce of luck early he should be figuring in the finish, his lack of early speed is a big concern but if he can get out into the open he does possess a wonderful turn of foot.

Midnight Tammy is in good hands and she does have a zippy 30.17 victory here to her credit, she will need to settle on the speed to win but there is very little speed underneath her so she should get every chance.

Flaunt It rounds out the chances, she resumes after three months off but she did show a lot of talent when last in work.

Fast Bean can be very unreliable at times but he appears perfectly placed in the pink draw and with a good getaway he should have the speed to get across in the run to the first turn. Four starts back he went through the first marker in a brilliant 5.58 before scoring in a more than handy 30.16. If he can turn in a similar effort tonight he will take a power of beating.

Cheeky Freyer hasn’t had much luck in recent weeks and she should appreciate the drop in class tonight. She isn’t great to begin but she does muster well once she hits the ground and she should be able to settle in a prominent position.

Georgina has been placed in five of eight here and she shouldn’t be too far away again, whilst Below Par has the good draw and he turned in a strong effort when placed here last week.

Bradley Benz recorded his last victory from this draw and with the lack of speed drawn on his outside tonight he looks poised to win again. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does muster speed quickly and he should be able to drive through at the first turn and hold them out- if he finds the lure I can’t see them reeling him in.

Hard Luck is suited by the widish draw and if he can avoid bother early he should be a major player. He tends to bomb the start and then zoom around the field, there is a fair bit of speed around him tonight so he should get every chance to hook to the outside early.

Boss Number Four broke through for an impressive 30.22 victory here last time and he should continue to improve.

Elusive Desire is one of the most talented chasers in the event but he lacks early speed and he doesn’t like to be crowded, he is obviously a winning chance but he will need a few things to go his way.

8HOUGENIE224134.88Peter Ruetschi

Hougenie loves racing over this track and trip and she appears perfectly drawn in the pink, after a string of placings over this trip she finally returned to the winners list with a slick 34.94 win last week. There doesn’t appear to be a heap of speed directly underneath so she should be able to get across and I would expect her to sit just behind the speedy Clash Of Kings early.

Clash Of Kings is the interesting runner, the classy Victorian is making his middle distance debut and he gives every indication that this trip will suit. He isn’t the best of beginners but he does burn soon after box rise and I would expect him to assume control early and break up the field mid-race. The last 50m is a small concern but I think he will get the trip.

Come On Fantasy will be well fancied, two starts back she set the track alight here when winning in a breathtaking 34.64, if she reproduces that type of effort she will take a power of beating.

Good Call Paul rounds out the chances, he produced a strong effort when placed here last week and he only needs luck early to feature.

8GOLFING AMY235734.94John Pollock

Another great lineup and its hard to look past the well drawn Rue De Kahn. Two starts back she made her middle distance debut at Dapto and she was never headed when posting a smart 34.54. From the red tonight she should punch through and hold them out early and I can’t see them reeling her in when she is running around the 34.90 mark.

Ralphy Cinel is much better than his recent form reads and he should get a nice sit on Rue De Kahn early, he is quite strong in the run home so if he is close to her off the back straight he may give her a fright as they reach the line.

Mister To Us is the run on type and he must be included in your exotics, I dont think he can win but he might be able to pick off a few of the tiring runners in the home straight.

Sheridon is absolutely flying at the minute and if he gets across he then becomes a serious winning chance.

8MULLAWAY223134.62Joanne Price

Mullaway is an absolute speed demon and if he can cross from the wide draw he should put a space in them. He has won four of seven over this journey and he showed that he is back to his best with a blistering 37.12 Lismore win and the impressive part of that win was that he made the talented Tuavasa Shek look second rate.

Buck City should bring Mullaway across in the early stages and he is aiming for a hat trick of impressive wins. He has gone around the 35 flat mark in both of his wins and a similar effort tonight will see him finish in the top two.

Farmer’s Gold is a big talent and if he can avoid early bother he should figure in the finish, he has terrible box manners but over this journey he should settle a lot closer to the speed.

Top Four: 8 – 7 – 2 – 6

9FROSTY JAY JAY486129.73Renald Attard

Grand Roman has won 12 races over this journey and he doesn’t appear too badly drawn in the middle. With a pacey beginner drawn underneath he should get a clear passage in the run to the first turn and I would expect him to assume control as they head into the back straight. He is a very fast chaser on the bunny and I would expect him to win if he finds the lead mid race.

Abby’s Fantasy is drawn to hold them out at the first bend and she should be able to hold on quite well. She has raced against good company of late and this is the weakest event she has contested for a while.

Gumlow Star is better than her form reads and she will be hitting the line quite well, she is likely to be double figures and she could be the value.

Chariot’s Offiah has a top record here and he could run a nice race at odds.

Great race and it’s hard to look past gun sprinter Flash Reality after he returned to form with a brilliant 29.90 win here last week. He is generally pretty reliable early and he musters pace at a great rate soon after box rise, if he can find himself in the top three at the first bend he should prove far too classy for his rivals.

Dream River has the good draw and he is racing extremely well. With the wide running You Can Talk on his outside he should be afforded all the breaks early and I would expect him to finish in the top three.

Cyndie’s Special is very reliable and she is never far away in this company, if she can step cleanly she should put herself in contention early and she will be very strong in the run home.

She’s Too Hot is flying at present and after two blistering 431m Ipswich wins she should be ready to bring that form to town. She has won twice over this track and trip previously and I would expect her to be able to improve on her already impressive 30.12 PB run.

Stella Nights has the class edge and if she is given room early she will take a power of beating, I’m a bit concerned about the rails draw but she can step away cleanly at times and from the red she might be able to settle a little closer than normal.

Don’t Go Quietly scored an impressive 30.18 win here two runs back and he should be in the mix again, his box manners aren’t great but he does muster speed quickly.

Hazy Jane rounds out the chances, she has won two of four here and she has the speed to get across.

Bremer is a reliable beginner and he recently caught the eye when posting a brilliant 29.83 victory here. He has only had the two runs in Qld and I would expect him to continue to improve, there is no speed at all on his outside so he should roll to the early lead and I can’t see them getting near him.

Astound Ya has the good draw and he returned to form with a solid 30.81 Ipswich win, he doesn’t have a great record here but he should settle in a prominent spot early and I would expect him to be in the money.

Grim Creeper is extremely hard to follow but he has a heap of talent, if they happen to shuffle up in the lead, look for him to be swooping home over the top.

Birkdale Beauty rounds out the chances, she is rising in class after two solid wins here but she has early speed and if she finds the lead she will give a great sight.
