Ennis Bale had been out of form for a while but last week he showed signs of his best when placed here over 400m. He was a tad slow to begin but he worked his way through the field nicely and was beaten by three lengths behind exciting speedster Bralyn Stalker. With the empty box on his outside, he should get a fairly clear passage as they head into the first bend and I think he can salute at nice odds.
Voight is the clear and obvious danger, he powered home last start to score at Geelong in 25.92 and if he can avoid early bother he should be able to figure prominently. He has won two of three here and the wide draw should suit him.
Bomber Attack has the speed to lead and he should give a bold suit, he has been run down at his past two but if they shuffle up behind him tonight he may be able to steal the prize.
Top Four: 4 – 8 – 2 – 1
Boxed Quinella: 2,4,8 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 4,8/1,2,4,8 ($6 for 100%)
Trifecta: 4/1,2,8/Field ($18 for 100%)

Tekki China has been racing in consistent fashion of late and he is getting close to another win. Last time out he was placed in very quick time here and if he can repeat the dose he will take a power of beating. He has a slow beginner drawn directly underneath so if he can step on terms he should be able to drive through and assume control mid race.
Take Them On could be the value in the event, I dont think he can win but he is almost a lock to run a place. He has been placed in three of four over this journey and he loves to scout wide in his races, he will get back early but he should be steaming home at the end.
Black Odin has the good draw and he should run an improved race, he has a good record here and he has the speed to hold them out.
Vee For Vegas must be included in your exotic bets, she drops in class and she will be hitting the line solidly.
Top Four: 6 – 8 – 1 – 5
Exacta: 6,8/1,5,6,8 ($6 for 100%)
Quinella: 6 to rove with 1,5,8 ($3 for 100%)
