Very open race to start the night but the well bred Smokem Jimmy looked very impressive when scoring here last week in 29.99. On that occasion he stepped cleanly and went past the first marker in a more than handy 5.15, if he can reproduce that type of effort he should be able to hold the early lead again. He appeared to get a little tired in the run home last week so I would expect him to hit the line a little better tonight.

Hestia Bale scored a convincing 30.05 heat win from this draw and she should make an impact again. She has been well supported in her two runs to date and I would expect her to show continual improvement with each run. Lister Bale scored well on debut and he went through the first bend in a zippy 5.12, that type of run would see him settle in the top two tonight and if he can avoid trouble at the first bend he should be thereabouts at the business end. Unther Bale and Proven Bolt both have enough ability to cause a boil over as well, so very tough race to kick off and it’s worth looking for over’s.

8MY BABY PORSCHA [5]23122NBTC Cortese (Hampton Park)

Kiltah Magic has come up with the gun draw and she announced herself as a future star when scoring here in a sizzling 29.53 last month. She isn’t the best beginner but she does possess a fairly good turn of foot, so if she can get away on terms she should have sufficient speed to punch through and lead. There are a couple of handy types in this event but I don’t think they will be able to reel her in when she is running sub 29.50 on the bunny.

I’m a massive fan of Conquer Fear and I believe that once he really learns how to race he will be a major player in much stronger races than this. He has a solid 29.88 PB here but he is capable of going a lot quicker and if he gets the breaks at the right times he may salute at nice odds. Veetee Saharrah caught the eye with a slick 30.16 Cranbourne win last week and she too is a real up and comer. This is clearly her toughest test to date but if she finds herself in the top two as they head for the back straight she will be looking to make a huge impact. Dyna Keitaro has won three of five impressively and despite the awkward draw he must be kept safe.

8DYNA ZOD (NSW)[5]16554NBTA Dailly (Anakie)

Gorham Bale is a highly promising chaser and I think in time he is going to be a star stayer, however at present he is flying over the sprint trip and he appears drawn to get the cash. Two starts ago he stepped cleanly and let throughout when recording a blistering 29.42 win here, obviously a repeat of that would see him win quite comfortably here. My only concern with him is that he does like to race middle to wide through the turns and with the pace drawn out wide he may just need a little luck as they approach the bend.

Lonesome Jett is blessed with a scintillating turn of foot and although she was beaten here on the weekend, I believe she will be a lot better for the run. In her brief career to date she has recorded some very quick wins on the provincial circuit and I think she is good enough to run a strong 500m. Staker’s Chin scored a commanding 30.50 Cranbourne win last start and he has won here previously in a very zippy 29.50, so with some luck in running he should be able to make an impact. Of the others, Dyna Zod has been a little disappointing since winning a heat of the Group One Maturity Classic but with a clear run early he may be able to regain some confidence.

7ASTRONOMIC (WA)[4]5211129.61(4)D Mcdonald (Devon Meadows)
8WIND WHISTLER [4]2323129.49(8)A Langton (Anakie)

Astronomic is racing in rare form at present and with his blistering early speed he is going to prove very hard to hold out. After scoring two sub 30 second wins at The Meadows, he followed that up with an all the way 29.61 win here. In his past five starts his first sectionals have consistently been around the 5.10 mark and that type of effort would just about see him cross to the early lead tonight. This race is probably the strongest race he has contested but he can run time on the lure and he appears to be getting better with every run.

Dyna Ostrander is a star in the making and he turned in a monster effort to score a 29.71 heat win. On that occasion he bombed the start and he had to work overtime to get into contention but he was still good enough to score. I am expecting him to step a lot better tonight and he should find himself in contention as they head for the back straight. Wind Whistler is a powerhouse stayer in the making and I would be looking for him to be charging home late in tonight’s event. I think he may get a little too far back early tonight but he should run home into a place.

8DUCHESS BALE (NSW)[5]42363NBTM Delbridge (Balliang)

Duchess Bale was a tad disappointing here last week after leading but I think she should have enough speed to lead again tonight and there doesn’t appear to be too many Wind Whistlers in this event. She is yet to win here in seven starts but she has been placed in four of those runs and all of her starts here have been in strong company. The key to this race is that there is very limited early speed engaged and from the pink she will get plenty of room early and therefore she should get a very cheap lead.

Sisco Rage has been racing a tad below his best of late but he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. Box three isn’t a big disadvantage and if he can get away cleanly he should be able to get a nice sit just behind the early leaders. Peloton Bale is a huge talent but he loses too many races because of his poor box manners. From the seven box he is going to need a heap of luck but he still should be good enough to run home into a place. Galahad and Allen Malik must be included in quaddies if you are going wide in the first leg.

8SHALL SHE ROCK [4]5314242.01(8)D Crawford (Pearcedale)

On last week’s performance it is very hard to look past the exciting Zipping Maggie. After a good getaway, she showed great early speed and assumed control soon after the start for an all the way win here last week in a sizzling 41.85. The most impressive part of that effort was that she actually went faster than the National Distance Championship State Final which was won by the champ Xylia Allen. If she begins cleanly and finds the early lead again it is very hard to see her being run down tonight.

Shall She Rock was far from disgraced when placed behind Maggie last week and although I don’t think she can turn the tables, she should be good enough to fill the quinella spot. She will be keen to find the fence early but with some luck in the first 50m she should be able to make an impact. Lady Toy will likely trail them early but she runs all day and I would expect her to pick off the stragglers in the final 100m of the race. She is a bit one paced but if the gaps open at the right times she shouldn’t be too far away.

8MISS SOCIETY [4]2521734.47(7)J Imlach (Pearcedale)

Mepunga Hayley is a gun sprinter and she should have no trouble with the rise in distance. Three starts ago she captured the Group One Maturity Classic at The Meadows in a blistering 29.79 and from the red tonight she should lead throughout. She appears to hit the line very strongly in her sprint races and if she finds the early lead and if the track is in good knick I think she can give the 34 second barrier a good nudge. She is going to be short but she looks to be a great anchor in the quaddie and take her up front in your exotic bets.

Oscura turned in a monster effort when scoring here on Sunday in 34.47, he experienced a heap of trouble in the run but he was still good enough to pick himself up and make an impact. He will most likely give Mepunga Hayley too big of a head start but he should be able to run home into the quinella spot. Penance Allen showed her best with a smart 34.35 win here last week and if she can get through the first bend relatively unscathed she should be able to run a drum.

8ALLEN DEED (NSW)[3]5811229.65(4)A Dailly (Anakie)

Allen Deed scored a breathtaking 25.24 Geelong win three runs back and he appears to have returned to racing a much better sprinter. He has always been a very fast chaser but in his two Geelong wins of late he has showed a devastating turn of foot and he has made some quality chasers look second rate. From the pink tonight he is going to need a little bit of luck as they head into the first bend but if he can balance up in the top four he will take a power of beating.

Buckle Up Mason scored a smart 29.99 Meadows win two runs back and he is very reliable at box rise. He isn’t as strong as he used to be but he is still good enough to hold off most of these. Hailstorm Billy does his best racing here and he has been racing in very consistent fashion. He is likely to get a long way back in the early stages but he has terrific track sense and he should be in the mix at the business end. Dyna Beth is the smokey in the event, she was a runner up in last year’s Melbourne Cup and she is just a little down on confidence at present. If she happens to get away cleanly and lead, she can definitely show her best form and get the cash at massive odds.

Gimme Fuel has been unlucky/disappointing in his past few runs but tonight he finds himself in one of the weakest races he has contested for a while. There is a fair bit of early speed drawn on his inside and if he can step away cleanly I would expect him to sit just outside the leaders or lob just behind them on the fence. If he avoids trouble he should take over mid race and then career away as they head for home.

Mumma Hook doesn’t run a strong 500m but from the red I would expect her to punch through and lead early. She has won here in a solid 29.75 previously and if there is some shuffling behind her she may just steal the prize. Soho Rhythm charged home to score here in 29.64 two runs back and she isn’t too badly drawn out wide. Jordan Allen is more than capable but he can be a very hard dog to follow, from the pink I have my doubts as to whether or not he will be able to cross early.

Extremely difficult race and with Eliza Blanche expected to start very short I think we can find some value. Yakamov Bale finally broke through at Cranbourne the other night in a solid 30.53 and I think he can back to back. On that occasion he settled second and as they passed the back straight he idled up to the leader and put pay to him very quickly. The manner in which he hit the line was quite impressive and with a couple of keen railers drawn underneath tonight, he should find himself very close to the early lead again and he may just prove too strong.

Zipping Snoopy can be hard to follow at times but there is no doubting that he has a heap of ability. Three starts ago he beat Eliza Blanche at The Meadows and I think he will be good value again tonight. He would need to settle in the top two to win but he does have a great turn of foot soon after box rise and I can see him finding the early lead with a clean get away. Obviously Eliza Blanche is a great chance but at Sandown on Sunday she appeared to show a flat spot mid race when scoring in easier class, tonight in better company she can’t afford to lose too much ground mid race.

Grand Faith was far from disgraced when placed here last week and with some luck early he should be able to go one better. He is armed with an explosive turn of foot and three starts ago he smashed a smart field when scoring at Shepparton in 25.38. He tends to do his best racing from wide draws and if he can reproduce his sizzling 29.49 PB here he will take a power of beating.

Lamia Bale has had little luck since winning a semi final of the Group One Maturity Classic at The Meadows in 30 flat last month and she is drawn to show improvement. There isn’t a whole heap of early speed drawn outside of her, so she should get a clear run into the first bend. Dynamo’s Gift is very fast on his night and if given a clear run initially he has the ability to score, from box six he will need everything to go his way but if he goes around at big odds he is worth a saver bet. Turbine rounds out the winning hopes, he has been placed in his past three starts and he should be thereabouts again.

Race 12 – 515M Grade 5 – 10:52PM

Sonic Pirate turned in a monster effort when placed here on Sunday behind gun sprinter Eliza Blanche. On that occasion he pinged the lids and led Eliza Blanche for most of the trip and he was only gunned down in the shadows of the past. If he can reproduce a similar performance tonight he will definitely give them something to catch at nice odds.

Shot To Bits is a freakish talent and he only needs to get through the first bend without too much trouble to make his presence felt. He has been slow to begin in his past two starts but he has powered home to go down narrowly in fast times, with an ounce of luck he will definitely feature. Erza Allen is another promising chaser she must be respected based on her recent 30.18 Meadows win, her 5.05 to the first marker was super impressive and that type of effort would see her just about lead tonight.
