King Cadel has been racing in ridiculous form since coming to SA and he has a great record from wide draws. Last time out at Angle Park he overcame a poor start to beat a classy field in 22.59. He normally begins a lot better than that and with a good getaway tonight he should assume control soon after the start. If you can land $2.20 or better that is a nice price.
Wired For Sound had been struggling for a while, but he showed a return to form at Angle Park during the week when narrowly beaten by the speedy Avid Tyson. There isn’t a lot of speed underneath him tonight so with a good getaway he should be able to roll to the early lead. Uncle Vick hasn’t had much luck in his three recent placings at Angle Park and with a clear run early he should be there to threaten. Contrarian is the interesting runner, he resumes from a lengthy spell but he is a class act when at peak fitness, so watch for any significant betting moves.

Regal Looper has a great record at this track having won three of five and he recently returned to form with a strong 31.72 Strathalbyn win. He is armed with a great turn of foot soon after box rise and if he reproduces his sizzling 30.62 PB run here he should put a space in them. He can be a little tardy at box rise but he doesn’t have much speed drawn on his outside so he should get a fairly clear passage early.
Long Gully Mark looks the likely leader and he should give a great sight out in front. He is much better than his recent form suggests and he seems to save his best for this circuit. Wiregrass turned in a strong effort when placed here last time and she is very fast when she lands near the bunny. She should have enough speed to land in the top three and she may be worth a bet if she goes around at silly odds. Piero has been racing well of late but I think place chances appear best tonight, from the wide draw he is likely to be posted wide for most of the trip.
