Good race to kick off the night and the enormously talented Size Does matter should get the job done. He has been a little poor to begin in recent times and he hasn’t had much luck soon after box rise. Tonight he has slow beginners drawn on either side and a wide runner drawn directly on his outer. He is having his first race here but I’m sure he would have trialled here previously and if he can find the bunny early a sub 29.80 run looks likely.

Kiltah Magic has a big engine also and she hasn’t had much luck since scoring at Sandown in a blistering 29.35, she normally pings the lids and with a quick getaway tonight she should put herself right in contention. I think the favourite may be a little too brilliant for her but she can fill the quinella spot. Dyna Inca is well drawn near the inside and she will be hitting the line solidly. She is likely to get too far back early to win but she could be a good one to anchor for third and fourth in exotics. Morson Senor has the speed to hold them out and he should give a great sight, he has been racing well at Sandown and if the well fancied ones find bother he may steal the prize.

Take Charge is dropping considerably in class tonight and he should get every chance to lead throughout. Two starts back he led for a long way in a heat of the Geelong Cup and a similar effort tonight would see him build up a nice lead mid race. There isn’t anything overly strong in this event so if he finds the bunny it’s hard to see him being run down.

Dyna Tony has returned to form in recent weeks at Shepparton and although his record here isn’t flash, he looks suited from this draw and in this class. Two starts ago he beat a classy lineup at Shepparton in 25.52 and he does have enough early speed to settle just behind Take Charge. Zeppelin Bale is the up and comer and he has won two of four here, two starts back he beat a promising type here in 30.29 and he recorded impressive sectionals throughout, if he can step cleanly he should run a big race. Tantrum Tommy rarely wins but is never far away, he will get back early but he must be included in your exotics.

Sisco Rage is absolutely airborne at present and with an ounce of luck early he should make it five in a row. He can be a little hit or miss early but has slow beginners drawn underneath him and he does possess a great turn of foot soon after box rise. He may face a fair bit of pressure in the early stages from the outside division but if he can punch through and hold them out he should prove too strong.

Echelonic Action has been racing consistently in strong company of late and he loves racing here. He will get back in the early stages but hits the line well and has been in the money in ten of 14 here, so he is rarely far away. Dyna Perseus is a costly conveyance but he does have a heap of talent. If he happens to ping away he will be running time on the bunny and salute, however he is very unreliable and it’s probably best to just include him in your exotics. Untraceable was a strong 34.74 winner here last week and he should be suited by the empty draw underneath, if he can settle in the top three he should be there at the business end.

Dyna Fatbob really caught the eye when scoring a commanding 30.16 win here last week. On that occasion he stepped cleanly and assumed control soon after the start. I think Radinka Bale will lead him initially but he should settle just behind her and take over as they pass the back straight.

Radinka Bale as stated earlier is the likely leader and she should good a great sight. She has won three of 14 here but she always has trouble with the last 50m so will need to establish a big lead mid race. Duke Bale is another front runner and he should match motors with Radinka Bale early. He too struggles in the concluding stages so he may need to hold her out to win. Morningside is the run on dog in the event and she looked impressive when scoring a strong 31.17 Ballarat win last time. She is probably better suited to a longer journey but there are quite a few who struggle over this journey so she should be able to pick them off late in the race. Tweak rounds out the chances, he is a classy type but he is probably better suited to a rails draw, however he does like this venue so he must be respected.

Peloton Bale has a terrific record over this track and trip and he looks well placed to score again. Senor Socks is drawn to hold the early lead and he will set a cracking pace and that should allow Peloton Bale to drive up behind the leading division as they head through the first turn. His last 100m is the best part of his race and he should be running over the top as they head for home.

Tiggerlong Amigo is a class act and if he can get a clear run in the first 50m he should run a strong race. He can bomb the start at times so he will need to do everything right at box rise. Ballerino is the up and comer in the event, two starts ago he hit the line strongly when scoring here in 30.13 and he appears to be getting stronger with every run. Senor Socks can lead them for a long way but he is a serious doubt over the final 60m or so, I dont think he can win but he can maybe hold on for the minor end of the money.

The exciting Luca Neveelk has come up the red he appears to be the one they have to beat. He is blessed with ridiculous early speed and he recently captured the Group Two Geelong Cup final. He has won here previously in 30.15 but that was back in July and he is a much better and stronger chaser this time around, if he hold them out at the first bend he should be able to get the cash.

Keybow is a freak and should be ready to fire second up from a spell. He recorded his breathtaking 29.58 PB here from this draw and he does possess great speed once he hits the ground. Marcus Joe has a great record here and he could be the value in the event, he has won seven of 17 and it’s hard to ignore his blistering 29.66 PB. He races best when he can lead but if he can settle in the top three he should have enough petrol in the tank to run over the top of them late. Dream It is more than capable of featuring in a race like this but he does require a lot of luck in the early stages of the race. Like some of the well fancied chasers, he has a great record here and if he goes around at silly odds he may be worth a saver bet.

Seeking Justice has improved greatly of late and he appears to be a star stayer in the making. He looks well placed in the red tonight and he recently caught the eye when posting a sizzling 34.35 win here. There is no speed drawn directly on his outside tonight so he should get a fairly clear passage as they head into the first bend.

Dewana Lass is well placed in the pink and after two fast placings at Cranbourne recently she looks overdue for a change of luck. She likes to scout wide in her races so she should get plenty of room soon after box rise and she should be able to settle a little closer to the speed tonight. Thunder Eyes has been crying out for this journey and he showed a few good signs when placed at Sandown Park last time. He will need a few breaks as they head into the first turn but if he can avoid bother he should be right in the mix. Lou Todd is never far away over this trip and he has strong place claims again, with a good getaway he should be able to give a great sight.

Good lineup set to do battle and I’ve decided to go against the favourite, There is a heap of early speed on the outside and the speedy Ralphy Cinel should be able to cross early and he may steal the prize. He has won his past four in explosive fashion and I dont think the favourite can afford to give him too much of a head start.

Clearly My Bro Fabio is a freak and with any sort of luck he simply wins. My concern is that he may get shuffled back soon after the start and he may have a few problems working his way through traffic, he is still good enough to win but I’m not willing to take under the odds. Eliza Blanche has won seven of her past eight and she set the track alight with a sizzling 34.19 heat win, she is better suited to a rails draw but Ralphy Cinel should give her a nice cart across in the early stages. Oscura rounds out the winning hopes, he turned in a monster performance to score in his heat and he is capable of showing early speed in his races.

National Time is a super provincial sprinter and in recent months he has scored some scorching wins. Last week at Ballarat he came from off the speed to score in 25.16 and I think he will turn in an even more impressive effort as he should be able to find the bunny soon after the start. He has a smart 30 flat PB here and he could probably go a bit quicker tonight if he avoids early bother.

Deli Allen is much better than her recent form reads and she should run an improved race. Her box manners aren’t great but she does possess a good turn of foot and that should allow her to settle in a fairly prominent position. Dyna Zod has a good record here and he hasn’t been racing with much luck in recent times. With a good getaway he should settle just behind National Time and that should allow him to finish in the placings. Satsuki Bale is going to be well supported tonight but she is yet to feature in five tries here and she is likely to start under the odds.

Grand Legacy is a classy type and with a good getaway he should get back into the winners list. Three runs back he pinged the lids and scorched around Ballarat in 25.14. He normally begins well and he has gone sub 5.10 to the first marker here previously, he is a lot stronger these days so if he finds the early lead he should prove too strong.

Ultima Bale is an exciting prospect and he showed a terrific turn of foot when scoring at Ballarat in 25.22 two runs back. He isn’t the most reliable beginner but if he gets some room initially he should drive through and settle in the top two. Her Highness is a classy Tasmanian and she led for a long way at Warrnambool when placed in her Victorian debut, I dont like her chances of crossing tonight so place claims appear to look best. Creamy Soda hasn’t had much luck in his past three runs but he did record a hat trick of wins prior to that.

Race 11 – Grade 5 Heat 525M – 10.40PM

Lektra Brave is dropping considerably in class tonight and he looks well placed in a wide draw. There isn’t a whole lot of early speed in this event so if he can step away cleanly he should be able to settle in the top two and he should then prove too strong in the run home.

Allen Icarus is normally a good beginner and he should be able to cross and find the early lead, he has been knocked around a bit in his past couple so if he can land on the bunny he should be able to regain a lot of confidence. Harden Bale is the run on type and he is due for a change of luck, there isn’t too much speed directly on his outside he with an even getaway he should settle on the better side of midfield. Lethal Three rounds out the chances, she doesn’t win often these days but she is rarely far away.
