Absolute Boss has recorded two top placings here since coming from QLD and he gets his chance to break through tonight. Last week he showed a dazzling turn of foot soon after box rise and he led until the shadows of the post. I would expect him to lead again tonight and he should be able to establish a race winning lead off the back straight. Time For War turned in a strong performance in his heat and with some luck early he appears to be the main danger. Lochinvar Impala and Stop Scrammin’ were both impressive heat winners but they are poorly drawn tonight and they will need a heap of luck in the early stages.

Race 6 Crash Dooley
1st: $1,405 2nd: $400 3rd: $200.
Universal Size is armed with a devastating turn of foot and if he can get away on terms tonight he should prove too classy. Three starts ago he flew to the first marker before posting a very slick 22.15 Ballarat win. His box manners can sometimes be a worry but he would still be good enough to score with some difficulties early. Mohinga Max caught the eye with a brilliant 22.05 win here last week, the only concern with him is that he pinged the lids last week and it is unlikely he can repeat that tonight. Mar Wah could be the smokey in the event, he has enough speed to lead and he could give a great sight at odds.
