Habana Flex has been racing in consistent style of late and she is drawn to get all the breaks. After narrowly being beaten here she went to Strathalbyn and scored a best of the night 24.29 win. Both efforts where from the red draw and today she has the luxury of slow beginners being drawn directly on her outside. High Status is the obvious danger, he is drawn ideally in the pink and he can run time when he lands on the lure. I don’t think he can beat the red as Habana Flew might have too much mid race dash for him. Casmay Bale rounds out the chances, she is much better than her form suggests and she can show great early pace in her races.

Aston Odin returned to his brilliant best here last week and he is drawn to go back to back. Last week he was slow to begin but he made up ground quickly and reeled in today’s rival Tex Walker in the shadows of the post. He has two empty draws underneath today and that should allow him to get all the breaks early on. Proven Juddy returns from a short spell and he has won six of 11 over this trip. If he can ping the lids he should match motors with Aston Odin for most of the trip. Tex Walker is the only other genuine chance, he would need to ping and lead to win but even if he does I think the other two will reel him in late
