Race 11: Sacramento Sal
Sacramento Sal is well placed in the red draw tonight and if she can time the start she should get every chance to score. She has a solid record here having won two of nine with a further three placings and she has broken the 30 second barrier. There is a little bit of speed on her outside but the two and three will move off through the corner, so she should get a nice run through at the corner. I think she will be in front as they head for the back straight and she should be too hard to reel in.
Race 4: Let It Develop
Let It Develop doesn’t have super form at present but his recent efforts are better than they look and tonight he has come up with the ideal draw. He has always done his best racing from this draw and he tends to begin a lot better when exiting this trap. There are quite a few handy chasers in this event so he is likely to be over the odds tonight and he is worth an investment. The seven will hunt for the inside soon after the start and that should give him a nice cart across.
Race 5: Lektra Concord
Lektra Concord is a lot better than his form suggests and I think he has the speed to lead at the first corner. In recent weeks he has been taking on some top class line-ups and he has been far from disgraced in a few of those efforts. He is a different chaser when on the lure and at the big odds he is definitely worth an each way ticket, Smart Missile is obviously going to be hard to beat but he is having his first look at The Meadows and I think he is the lay of the night from the poor draw.
Race 2: Box 2,3,7 ($3 for 100%)
The two and three are both armed with smart early speed and they should dominate the race in the early stages and I think whoever does find the top should finish in the top two. The seven showed a return to form last time and he will be powering to the line, so with some luck mid race he could sneak into the quinella spot and add some value.
