Really nice race and I think we can find some value with the promising Keller Bale. He has only had the three starts but he has turned in big performances in all three and he appears to be getting better and better with every effort. This race features a few front runners who all struggle in the closing stages and from box two he should be able to settle midfield and then make a strong move as they pass the back straight. He is likely to start around the $8 mark and that is great each way odds.
Dashing Dee Dee is the clear danger, she is the real deal and her 29.90 win here three runs back was super impressive. She can miss the kick at times but she musters speed very quickly and looks well placed in a wide draw. Gun Mcbain has the class edge but she is a must lead to win type of chaser, with the speed in boxes one and eight, she is unlikely to get a cheap lead and may hit a wall in the final stages.
Top Four: 2 – 7 – 1 – 3

Sneaky Little Me can be very hard to follow but she has loads of talent and is well placed in the wide draw tonight. She had no luck in her 600m debut here last week and tonight I am expecting her to begin a lot better and that should allow her to find the lead as they pass the post the first time. On the bunny she is a really different chaser and I would expect her to put a massive gap in them mid race.
Doona Bale has a solid record here and she is dropping in class tonight. She is likely to settle a long way back early but has a big finish andonly needs a little luck in running to feature. Everlasting Gaze is much better than her recent form reads and may be suited by the rise in distance. She is suited to the rails draw and could be the value in the event.
