Woodnear has returned to SA in fine form having won two of his three attempts. In his past two starts he has begun brilliantly and led from go to whoa and he has gone around the 30 flat mark in both runs. With a wide runner on his outside and keen railer underneath he should get every chance to muster speed in the early stages and prove too classy for these.
Chemical Maker has had three runs from a spell and he should be ready to show his best. In his latest effort here last week he stepped back up to this distance and he was far from disgraced when placed in slick time. The empty draw underneath should help and he should be at peak fitness now. Dyna Erwin has his favourite draw and should get a nice cart across early. He has a habit of getting up at nice odds so he is worth an each way ticket if he goes around at silly odds. Breaker Kahn rounds out the chances, he hasn’t had much luck in his two SA runs and will be looking to improve.

Check Yo Self is a highly promising speedster who has won three of four to date. Her latest victory came here last Wednesday when she led throughout in a solid 30.40. In that performance she got a slight check as they headed into the first turn so I think she should be able to go a little quicker tonight.
Montgomery Road has the class edge but he seems to make too many mistakes in the early stages, if he can get through the first turn without too much bother he should be right in the finish. Storm Allen has been solidly placed in her past three runs here and she shouldn’t be too far away again. She isn’t a genuine winning threat but is a great dog to anchor for second and third in your exotics. Our Striker rounds out the chances, he led all the way here last week in 30.49 and will give a great sight again if he can cross early.
