Tears Siam is a full sister to the gun stayer Space Star and she isn’t too far off him talent wise. She is well placed out wide and she should get every chance to lead from the front mark. Three starts back she posted a sizzling 41.91 Sandown Park win and if she can reproduce that type of effort she would put a space in this lot.

Shall She Rock will give them a bit of a head start but she has a great record here and she should be able to drive through into a prominent position as they go past the post the first time.

Cambridge Prince has enough speed to settle in the top two early and if he does lead them up he should give them something to catch, he can be unreliable but he should get every chance from the front marker.

Berry Blitz rounds out the chances, she recently posted a strong 42.69 victory here and with some luck early she should be able to make an impact.

Targaryen has recently joined the powerful Robert Britton kennel and he comes here after scoring a brilliant 26.41 Bulli win on debut. On Wednesday he went around this track and trip and he was far from disgraced when finishing second. From the red tonight he should be able to push through and hold the early lead and I think if he finds the bunny early he will be running some serious time.

Bally Mo Town is armed with smart early speed and he broke through for a well deserved win at Shepparton in 25.68. He is likely to match motors with the red for most of the trip and he should hold on for the quinella spot.

Tantrum Tommy doesn’t win very often but he is very strong and he has been placed in seven of his 14 tries here, he might be a good anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Hakata Bale could be the value in the event, his recent form isn’t that great but he does possess early speed and if he finds the early lead he may prove hard to catch.

Neolisious is drawn perfectly in the red and she is improving with every start. Two starts back she overcame a slow start to score at Bendigo in 24.19 and tonight I am expecting her to begin a lot better and lead at the first turn. She isn’t known for her strength but she is hitting the line a lot better of late and this class should suit.

Dyna Brainiac has the class edge and he has been placed in five of his seven starts here to date. The box draw hasn’t done him any favours but he does muster speed well and he should be able to follow the three across in the run to the first bend.

Schumacher has a heap of talent and if he gains a clear run from the squeeze box he should be able to run a big race, he will go around at big odds and he could be the value.

Tiger’s Hero round out the chances, he has won two of his past three here and he does possess a great turn of speed soon after box rise.

Repayments is an exciting prospect who has won five of six to date and his latest victory was here in a blistering 29.87. His first sectional of 5.17 wasn’t overly impressive but he did bomb the start last time and from the red he should be able to begin a lot better. He is going to be quite short but it’s hard to tip against him so it may be worth anchoring him up front in your exotic bets.

Tiggerlong Fix is a highly talented speedster who has been sparingly raced to date. Last time out he showed dazzling mid race speed when posting a handy 30.22 and if he can begin well tonight he should give the favourite a minor scare.

Tiggerlong Ketut has enough speed to cross early and he should be able to improve on his smart 30.15 heat win, he got quite tired in the run home last week so he should be a lot better for that run.

Rashad Reason is well drawn nearer the inside and he should finish on strongly, he has been placed in seven of nine here and he shouldn’t be too far away again.

Beckenbauer is much better than his recent form reads and he should get every chance to regain some confidence from the favourable pink draw. Back in early December he posted two brilliant Sandown Park wins and since then he has continually found bother soon after the start, with a keen railer drawn underneath tonight he should get a nice cart across and he will prove very hard to hold out.

Crackerjack Rose is extremely consistent and she has led in her past three starts here, if she can step cleanly again she should be able to cross and find the bunny again. She isn’t overly strong but this is the weakest event she has contested for a while so if she leads she will give a great sight.

Mepunga Moss is much better than her recent form reads and she too will benefit from the drop in class, she has won four of 11 over this journey and she just needs a clear run early to regain some confidence.

Zell Bale rounds out the chances, I dont like his winning hopes from the middle pin but he can run home into the placings.

10LITES AND SIRENS [5]Res.3221543.56(8)R Divirgilio (Devon Meadows)

Love Affair has the good draw and she could be great value in this event. She tends to do her best racing at this track and trip and from wide draws she tends to begin a lot better than normal. Last week she stormed home after finding early bother and she was far from disgraced, tonight she should settle in the first half of the field and as they round for home she should be about to assume control.

Deadly Boy made his staying debut and after being headed early and finding bother he managed to plug on well and hit the line better than expected, from the red he should be able to punch through and hold the early lead and I think he is a different chaser when on the bunny.

Serash Bale was desperately unlucky in her heat and I would expect an improved performance tonight.

Big Kat was the fastest heat winner and if she pings the lids she will give them something to catch, my concern with her is that there is a heap of speed in this event and she might ease out at the first turn.

Kiltah Magic can lead them up but I think they will reel her in with about 60m to go.

8HAILSTORM BILLY (NSW)[4]6573734.47(4)A Langton (Anakie)

Mepunga Hayley appears to be a few lengths off her best form at present but this is the easiest race she has contested for quite a while and if she finds the bunny early she should salute. She tends to begin well from wide draw and there doesn’t appear to be a lot of early speed in this event, she is a different chaser when on the bunny and if you can land $3.50 or better that is over the odds in this class.

Macca’s Sway hit the line solidly in his handy 34.57 victory here last week and from the red he should settle a bit closer to the speed than normal.

Coulta Rock should be suited by the drop back in distance and with the lack of speed around him, he should get every chance to settle in the top two and he can run time when given a clear run.

Cornelius Fudge is the only other chance, he has won two of three over this trip and he will benefit from the empty draw on his outside.

Crackerjack Max is a class sprinter in the making and he should prove hard to hold out based on his recent Wentworth Park win in a sizzling 29.79. On that occasion he flew to the first marker and never looked back, he will find it a little hard to cross from the pink tonight but there is very little speed directly underneath so he should be able to carve across.

Bottom Dollar showed a return to form at Ballarat last time with a strong 25.32 victory and if he can show that type of form again he should be right in this. The box draw is a disadvantage but he does have good speed and he has won three of six here.

Dyna Fancy should settle in the top two or three early and she is rarely far away in this company, I dont think she will win tonight but she should figure in the placings.

Great race and I think the speedy Oakvale Flyer should appreciate the rise in distance and she should give the two fancied runners something to catch. Her form at present reads quite ordinary but she is much better than that and last time out at Wentworth Park she was about to assume control before being knocked over. On the bend start she should be able to carve across to the early lead and I think she will have no trouble covering the distance.

Full On Bling has scored two devastating Sandown park wins in recent weeks and if he is given some room early he should make his presence felt. He was a tad disappointing here last week but that was his first look at the track and I’m willing to forgive him.

Untraceable is an absolute beast and if he is he should get the cash, the concern with him is that he can lose focus at times and he does tend to find bother in his races, so from the wide draw he will need everything to go his way early.

Usain I’m Nutty is a highly promising chaser and he is armed with a powerful finish, last time out he showed a bit more early dash than normal at Sandown and that allowed him to score with ease in a blistering 29.45. If he gains a clear passage in the first 50m he should be too strong in the run to the line.

Dyna Nihilist has a ridiculous amount of ability but he doesn’t always show it, from the wide draw he should get plenty of room to muster speed and if he can settle mid pack he should make a strong bid for victory as they get near the finish line.

Pud should hold a forward spot early and she didn’t have much luck in her debut here on Wednesday, she has scored some slick Sandown wins and if she does hold them out she will prove hard to reel in.

Vermont has won three of five to date in commanding fashion and with a clear getaway tonight he should get every chance to lead throughout. Two starts back he showed a great turn of speed when scoring at in 25.30 and a similar effort here will see him figure prominently.

Scunitza Speed led for a long way when placed here two runs back and she should settle on the speed again, she isn’t overly strong but this is quite a weak race and she might be able to hold on.

Young Henry has plenty of gears and if he can get to the outside he will prove hard to hold out. Three runs back he set the Bendigo track alight with a brilliant 23.81 win.

Ulla Allen rounds out the chances, she will hit the line solidly and she tends to race well here.

Allen Icarus hasn’t won for a little while but he is dropping in class tonight and from the red he should prove too good for this lot. He has been placed in 12 of 21 here and with a clean getaway he should have enough early toe to hold them out.

White Walker is another who doesn’t win very often but he is more than capable, two runs back he was narrowly beaten at Sandown Park in solid time and a similar effort here should see him feature.

Nala’s Heart hit the line solidly when placed here last time and if she is given a clear run early she can play a part in the finish, she is better suited to a wider draw but she won’t be desperate to get to the outside.
