Race 1 – 600M Grade 5 – 7:12PM
Dyna York’s recent form doesn’t appear to be very attractive, however tonight he faces a significant drop in class and finds a race which lacks genuine early speed. He appears suited from the middle pin and I expect him to be around the $7.00 mark which looks very appealing.
Unix Bale has the most talent of any runner in the field but the wide draw is somewhat of a concern for me. If she gets a clear run initially she will feature. Why Not Wayne is very hit or miss, but from box one he should also be a major player.
Top Four: 5 – 7 – 1 – 2
Suggested Bet: Win bets on Dyna York and Why Not Wayne.
Race 2 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 7:35PM
Cee Ronaldo recently set the Traralgon track alight with a dazzling 29.28 win and tonight he returns to a track which he tends to race well at. From box two he should muster to the early lead and make every post a winner.
Dyna Yenite is expected to settle near the speed and he looks to be facing a small drop in class. If Cee Ronaldo makes any mistakes early, Dyna Yenite might be off and gone with the prize. Anchor Zipping Makka for second and third in your exotics.
Top Four: 2 – 4 – 7 – 8
Trifecta: 2/4,7,8/Field ($18 for $1)
Trifecta: 2/7/Field ($6 for $1)
Trifecta: 2/Field/7 ($6 for $1)
Race 3 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 7:58PM
The perfectly drawn Vapour Storm looks to be one of the better bets of the night. He recently returned to form with a brilliant 29.64 Traralgon win and he should get every chance tonight.
Noble Bale has won seven races over this journey and he is armed with a barnstorming finish. He has them covered for talent but his poor box manners will see him get a long way back early. Skinny Vinnie was far from disgraced when placed here last week.
Top Four: 1 – 2 – 3 – 6
Suggested Bet: Win bet on Vapour Storm, rove in quinellas with 2,3,6.
Race 4 – 725M Mixed 4/5 – 8:19PM
See Him First is making his staying debut tonight and he has drawn a race which lacks real depth. I expect him to be starting at a very short quote but it’s hard to see him getting beat. May be worthwhile anchoring him in some all ups and the early quaddie.
Mimicking is second up from a short spell and he would have been sharpened up by his strong 515 metre effort last start. He races well here and he does have a fair bit of class. Maddison Dee has been going terrible of late.
Top Four: 8 – 1 – 2 – 6
Trifecta: 1,8/1,8/Field ($10 for $1)
Trifecta: 8/1/Field ($5 for $1)
Race 5 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 8:38PM
Surprisingly Buckle Up Mason drops back to a Grade 5 event and he looks to have panels on most of these. From box one he should find himself settling in the first three through the first bend and he will prove too powerful in the run home.
Black And Cool does his best racing here and he will be better for his first up placing at Shepparton last start. Take Charge is an exciting talent but he needs to do everything right from box six.
Top Four: 1 – 7 – 8 – 6
Suggested Bet: If you can find even money, empty the wallet on Buckle Up Mason.
Race 6 – 525M Free For All – 8:57PM
Class act Marcus Joe was never headed when scoring at Sandown in 29.34 recently and tonight he returns to his favourite track and trip. He has two slow beginners drawn outside and he should get every chance tonight.
Searle Bale is the smokey, since returning from a spell she has improved with every run and tonight at big odds she might be the surprise packet. Surf Mail will get a long way back early, anchor for second and third in your exotics.
Top Four: 6 – 8 – 3 – 1
Trifecta: 1,3,6/8/Field ($18 for $1)
Trifecta: 1,3,6/Field/8 ($18 for $1)
Trifecta: 6/1,3,8/1,2,3,4,7,8 ($15 for $1)
Race 7 – 725M Grade 5 Final – 9:22PM
Wilma Bale is a hard type to follow but when she is on song she is brilliant. After a slow beginning, she took control mid race and powered to the line for a smart 42.88 heat win and a repeat of that will see her win again.
Bekim Hatrick is going to be a major player in Group races in the future, so tonight from the rails draw he should be putting plenty of pressure on Wilma Bale in the closing stages. Heaps Of Ability looks to be the only other winning hope.
Top Four: 8 – 1 – 4 – 7
Suggested Bet: Take the even money for Wilma Bale, she should lead throughout.
Race 8 – 525M Grade 4 – 9:46PM
Extremely difficult race but I believe that the desperately unlucky Tick Bale gets his chance tonight. With two keen railers drawn underneath, he should be given plenty of room early and he will get a chance to show his true form.
Tiggerlong Chief has been very hit or miss at box rise of late, if he can ping the lids tonight he will set a cracking pace and will give them something to catch. If you get ridiculous odds about Lektra Bianca, she may be worth a small saver bet.
Top Four: 8 – 3 – 5 – 6
Suggested Bet: Tick Bale straight out, rove in quinellas with 3,5,6.
Race 9 – 600M Mixed 4/5 – 10:05PM
Gold Town is finally making his middle distance debut and he should have no trouble with the longer trip. He has two slow beginners either side, so he should get a clear run in the initial stages. If you can get $3.50 or better that is value.
Prue Bale will be flying out in front but the last 50 metres is a big concern for her. Moonhaze is well drawn out wide and he does his best racing at this venue.
Top Four: 3 – 8 – 2 – 1
Trifecta: 3/1,2,8/Field ($18 for $1)
Quinella: 3 to rove with 1,2,8
Race 10 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 10:25PM
Go Mobo has the gun draw and he recently set the track alight with a 25.14 Shepparton win. From the rails draw he should be able to punch through and lead and there doesn’t appear to be anything in this field that can reel him in.
Dyna Filbert is a consistent veteran who should be able to find the rails in the early stages. He’s coming off two solid metro wins and should feature again. Proven Trendy doesn’t look suited from out wide.
Top Four: 1 – 3 – 4 – 7
Suggested Bet: Win bet on Go Mobo, should be $2.50 or better.
Race 11 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 10:42PM
Cette Away is showing loads of promise and she is armed with very good early speed. She had no luck in her Meadows debut, but her racing pattern (leader) will suit this type of track.
Velocemente Has won five races over this journey and he faces a big drop in class. His only concern is his lack of early speed. With some luck initially he should be in the finish. Soul Eater has some claims at odds.
Top Four: 2 – 6 – 7 – 5
Suggested Bet: Win bet on Cette Way, quinella with Velocemente.
Race 12 – 525M Grade 5 Heat – 11:00PM
Rozehill Sanya looks ideally drawn out in eight and she gets her chance to return to form after four luckless runs in a row. She can ping the lids and her 29.89 PB here was recorded from this box.
Upset Boy has enormous potential but he can be very hit or miss at box rise. If he can step cleanly tonight he will be right in the mix. Yakamov Bale and Sky Fighter are the only other winning hopes.
Top Four: 8 – 6 – 3 – 5
