Kalden Balerion is a gun chaser when on song and he should appreciate the big drop in class today. He is normally fair to begin but he will show a great turn of foot and with a slow beginner and wide runner on his outer he should get every chance as they head into the first turn. Proven Juddy should settle on the speed and is the obvious danger. He is drawn poorly but he has good box manners and he shouldn’t be posted wide for long. Alhanna scored a top 30.79 win here last week and a similar effort today would see her be in the mix.
Top Four: 2 – 8 – 5 – 1

Trifecta: 2/1,5,8/Field ($18 for 100%)
Exacta: 2,8/1,2,5,8 ($6 for 100%)

1st: $900 2nd: $250 3rd: $125.
Stone Fixer recorded a smart 35.63 Grafton win three runs back and he appears well graded in this. He has done most of his racing over the 500m journey and so I would expect him to show superior early speed to his rivals and he should make every post a winner. Smashing Niro doesn’t win very often but he is rarely far away here, two starts ago he finished strongly when second over this trip and he should produce a similar performance today. Macie’s Dora has the good draw and she should be on the speed for most of the trip. I have some doubts about her running the trip but this race isn’t very strong.
Top Four: 4 – 7 – 1 – 8
Win bet on Stone Fixer
Trifecta: 4/1,7,8/Field ($18 for 100%)
Exacta: 4,7/1,4,7,8 ($6 for 100%)
Quinella: 4 to rove with 1,7,8 ($3 for 100%)
