Veyron Bale resumed from a lengthy spell here last week and he was far from disgraced when narrowly beaten by the speedy Cool Trend. On that occasion he missed the kick but made a strong move mid race. From the pink tonight he should get a clear run into the first turn and should burn them off mid race, he’s a super talent when on the bunny and he should prove too classy for these.
Skye scored a sizzling 22.57 win here two runs back and she loves racing here. There is very little pace drawn on her outside, so she should get every chance to settle in the first two early. Cool Trend beat Veyron Bale here last time out and he should give a great sight again, the last 30m is always a worry but he must be included in your exotic bets. Big Tex Rockin’ is the interesting runner, he resumes from a short spell and he may fire fresh.

Earl Bale is showing a heap of promise and was placed here last week behind the classy Jenkins Bale. He is normally a very reliable beginner and if he gets away with them he should have more than enough speed to cross in the run to the first turn. If he can find the lead then he should be able to get down to the 26 flat mark and that would be more than enough for him to score.
Peggie is better suited to a longer journey but she can sprint well and I expect her to be hitting the line very strongly. Choclotto is likely to start big odds but he isn’t without a chance, he is suitably drawn out wide and recently scored a strong 26.13 win over this trip. Go Go Gail rounds out the chances, she is another who will get back early but she has a big finish and only needs an ounce of luck in running.
Top Four: 5 – 2 – 8 – 7
