No Donuts is a superstar in the making and he should prove too good for this lineup. He was recently placed in the Group 2 Queensland Derby Final and he returns to a track where he has won two of four including a ridiculous 29.59 PB. There is a little bit of speed around him but he should be able to settle just behind them and he will prove too strong in the run home.
Velvet Flame has come up with the good draw and she has the speed to hold them out early. She was solidly placed here last week and she has won here previously in very good time.
Varcoe can be a little hit or miss early but he will appreciate the empty draw on his outside, with a clean getaway he should get plenty of room to balance up in the early stages and he will be very strong in the run to the line.
Schooner Doll has been costly of late but he will go around at good odds tonight and he could be value. He can show very good early speed and if he crosses the inside two early he could get away with the prize mid race.
Top Four: 2 – 1 – 4 – 3
Trifecta: 2/1,3,4/Field ($18 for 100%)
Quinella: 2 to rove with 1,3,4 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 1,2/1,2,3,4 ($6 for 100%)
Paua To Roar is a bit of a front runner and he can be hard to follow at times but I think he will be able to hold the early lead tonight and that should allow him to dash away mid race. He has a slow beginner on his outside and a fast beginner and keen railer drawn underneath, so if he does everything right at box rise he should be able to push through and drive to the early lead. I'm expecting him to get away mid race and that should allow him to steal the prize.
Adam Handler returned to the winners list with a slick 29.81 win here last week and if reproduces that type of effort he will figure prominently again. Clearly he has the class edge over his rivals, however he is drawn on the other side of the track tonight so he will need some luck in the early stages.
Winsome Senor has ability but he is very inconsistent. He will appreciate the empty draw underneath and if he can balance up in the top four early he can figure in the finish.
Old Spice must be included in your exotics, he was very unlucky here last week and he will hit the line fairly well tonight.
Top Four: 3 – 7 – 6 – 4
Win bet on Paua To Roar with William Hill
Exacta: 3,6,7/3,4,6,7 ($9 for 100%)
Quinella: 3 to rove with 4,6,7 ($3 for 100%)
Trifecta: 3/4,6,7/Field ($15 for 100%)
Little High has finally started to deliver on his early potential and he appears to have a fair bit on his rivals tonight. Last time out he bounced to the early lead and he never looked back when scoring here in 29.92. If he can repeat that effort he should be in line for the same result, he won't be flashy odds but he does look the goods.
Bulletproof Sky is the run on type in the event and he does own a slick 29.81 PB here. If he had drawn out wide he would be close to my top pick, however from the inside draw he may be giving away too big of a head start.
Little Jill has won four of her past five and she must be included in your exotic bets, this is a rise in class for her but she should be in the mix for a long way.
Black Lagoon rounds out the chances, I dont think he can win but he can settle in the top three early and he might grab some minor money.
Top Four: 3 – 2 – 7 – 8
Win bet on Little High
Quinella: 3 to rove with 2,7,8 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 2,3/2,3,7,8 ($6 for 100%)
Trifecta: 3/2,7,8/Field ($18 for 100%)
Chloe's Hand is normally a brilliant beginner and she should give a great sight out in front tonight. She isn't overly strong but this lineup lacks real depth and I'm expecting there to be a fair bit of shuffling up behind her. She has been placed here on two occasions and if she can get away mid race she should have enough in the tank to hold on.
Still Searchin' is a little hit or miss early but when she comes out on terms she is capable of showing genuine early zip. You can never tip her with any real confidence, however if she does land on the back of the seven early she will make it very interesting as they approach the winning post.
Certainty is returning to town in great form and he will be steaming home at the end, he has been racing in career best form of late and with a clear passage he should feature. The big concern with him is that he does lack early speed and he will be giving them a fairly big head start.
Medusa's Me Mum is a brilliant talent when on song but she has struggled since resuming from a spell, if she can find her best she is definitely a chance.
Top Four: 7 – 3 – 8 – 6
Win bets on Chloe's Hand and Still Searchin'
Boxed Quinella: 3,7,8 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 3,7,8/3,6,7,8 ($9 for 100%)
Trifecta: 3,6,7/8/Field ($15 for 100%)
Trifecta: 3,6,7/Field/8 ($15 for 100%)
Flash Earner wasn't afforded a lot of luck last time out when contesting a heat of the Richmond Oaks and she should appreciate returning to a track where she has won three of seven and been placed in the other four attempts. With the benefit of an empty draw on her outside she should be afforded a clear passage early and if she finds the top she should be winning.
Ritza Raider has continued to get better with every run from a spell and he is due for a change of luck. He has recorded three impressive placings here in recent weeks and if he can avoid trouble at the first bend he should figure in the finish.
Ella Has Class is a highly talented individual and if she comes out on terms she can make an impact, the only concern with her is that there is quite a bit of speed drawn around her.
Zulu Mystique is the interesting runner. She is facing a significant rise in class but she does sizzle early in her races and if she holds out Flash Earner at the first bend she could cause an upset.
Top Four: 4 – 7 – 3 – 2
Win bet on Flash Earner and Zulu Mystique
Quinella: 4 to rove with 2,3,7 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 4,7/2,3,4,7 ($6 for 100%)
Trifecta: 4/2,3,7/Field ($15 for 100%)
Get Up Dinozzo is a classy Victorian speedster and he finds himself in a pretty weak affair in his NSW debut. He has two very slow beginners drawn around him so he should be able to push through and just about lead at the first bend. His middle section is quite brilliant so I would expect him to dash away mid race and he should have too much on his rivals.
My Boy Brodie has a massive motor but he will be giving them a big head start in the early stages. If they shuffle up near the lead he can win, however I think it is best to just anchor him for second and third in your exotic bets.
Cy Tolliver can be hard to follow at times but he too will be hitting the line solidly and he shouldn't be too far away at the end.
Ebony Sting should sit just behind the seven in the early stages and if they break away mid race she might be able to hang on for some minor money.
Top Four: 7 – 6 – 2 – 4
Win bet on Get Up Dinozzo with William Hill
Boxed Quinella: 2,6,7 ($3 for 100%)

Wish Right Now is dropping in class tonight and with a clean getaway tonight she should give them something to catch. Last week she showed good early speed and was in contention for most of the trip when placed in solid time. This race really lacks depth and she really looks well placed, so if you can find $3.50 or better with William Hill I suggest you load up.
Taxi Driver was a strong 30.06 Gardens winner four runs back and if he can turn in a similar effort tonight he shouldn't be too far away. He has raced well from wide draws in the past and he should fill the quinella spot tonight.
Associate can show early speed at times and he might be in the mix for a long way, he has a steady 30.38 PB here but that type of run could see him sneak into the placings.
Invisible rounds out the chances, he is much better than his form reads and with a clear run he is capable of saluting.
Top Four: 4 – 8 – 7 – 2
Win bet on Wish Right Now
Quinella: 4 to rove with 2,7,8 ($3 for 100%)
Exacta: 4,7,8/2,4,7,8 ($9 for 100%)
Trifecta: 4/2,7,8/Field ($15 for 100%)
Very good race and it's tough to find the winner. I've decided to go with the speedy La Grand Logie. Three starts back he showed brilliant early speed when scoring here in 29.97 and if he finds the top tonight he should be running around the 29.70 mark and that will be enough to score. It's also worth noting that the four will move right at box rise so that should give him plenty of room to drive through at the first bend.
Opus Forte is clearly the fastest chaser in the race and if he can avoid early bother he will take a power of beating. He owns a breathtaking 29.41 PB here but I am a little concerned about the box draw. If he goes around at silly odds he could be worth an each way ticket.
To A Tee is a run on type and he must be included in your exotics. He has been racing in consistent fashion and with numerous front runners in this event he should be able to pick off a few stragglers late in the race.
Top Four: 3 – 4 – 2 – 8
Win bet on La Grand Logie with William Hill
Boxed Quinella: 2,3,4,8 ($6 for 100%)
Trifecta: 2,3,4/2,3,4,8/2,3,4,5,6,8 ($36 for 100%)
Exacta: 2,3,4/2,3,4,8 ($9 for 100%)
Big Bad Brenda has been racing in much stronger company of late and her form is much better than it looks. She will get back in the early stages but there are quite a few front runners in this event that will struggle to run the trip. If she can avoid early bother and the gaps open mid race she could be winning at very nice odds.
College Boyz is clearly the class factor in the race and if he pings the lids he will be winning. The concern with him is that he can bomb the start but he did look ultra impressive when winning at Dapto three runs back in 30.02.
Cee Cee Quoted has the good draw and he has been placed in four of six here, from the red he should settle a little closer to the speed than normal and he will be quite strong in the run to the line.
Top Four: 2 – 3 – 1 – 6
Win bets on Big Bad Brenda and Cee Cee Quoted
Boxed Quinella: 1,2,3 ($3 for 100%)
Trifecta: 1,2,3/1,2,3/1,2,3,6,7,8 ($24 for 100%)
Boxed Exacta: 1,2,3 ($6 for 100%)
Small field to finish up but it should be a very interesting affair. Zipping Spike is making his 715-metre debut here but he did return to form with a brilliant 34.70 Gardens win last time out and on that occasion he beat the highly talented Awesome Project. It is his first crack over this trip for a while, so he should show a lot more early speed than normal and early in his career he did have some good form over this distance range in Victoria, so he shouldn't have too much trouble in the final stages.
Ada Mary should match motors with the pink for most of the trip and she will give a great sight. She has won two of four over this journey and she has won five of her past seven overall.
Smooth Number is the only other winning chance, he isn't as brilliant as the other two but he is very honest and he will continue to grind away and if the leaders get a tired he could be there to capitalise.
Top Four: 8 – 6 – 4 – 2
Win bet on Zipping Spike with William Hill
Trifecta: 8/4,6/2,4,6 ($4 for 100%)
