Race 1 – 520M Grade 5 – 7:30PM
Tiger The Weapon was a tad disappointing when runner up here last week but at his previous start he looked very impressive with a 30.57 Richmond win, tonight am hoping he can reproduce the Richmond effort.
Mrs. Chitty Bang is armed with a very strong finish and she has been placed in two of three tries here, if there is some shuffling up front, look for her to be running over the top late. Chilli Sierra is much better than her last three runs suggest, whilst Betty Be Good must be included in your exotics.
Top Four: 5 – 4 – 1 – 2
Suggested Bets: Win bets on Tiger The Weapon and Mrs. Chitty Bang (More on Tiger The Weapon).
Race 2 – 520M Grade 5 – 7:50PM
Although his record at this venue isn’t too flash, last week he produced a big effort when placed here and that really caught my eye. After a slow start he hit the line solidly in a stronger race, if he can avoid early bother he should be a major player again.
Derek Shepherd missed the kick a little last week and struggled after that. Tonight if he can step cleanly he should lead and feature in the finish. Ready To Riot clearly has the class edge, however my big concern is the middle pin tonight, she will need a tonne of luck soon after box rise.
Top Four: 7 – 2 – 5 – 1
Suggested Bets: Each Way Jenmar Power, rove in quinellas with 1,2,5.
Race 3 – 520M Grade 5 – 8:07PM
She is going to be very short but My Kinda Music looks the moral of the night. In her past two starts here she has run sub 5.40 to the first marker and a repeat of that will see her lead and win in convincing style. If you can find a $1.80 or better, great value.
Apollo Reign has the gun draw and he tends to do his best racing from the red alley. In recent times he has been getting a long way back initially, tonight he should settle much closer to the lead and he has the ability to cause an upset. Make A Fifty must also be respected at odds, she can ping the lids at times and she drops in class tonight.
Top Four: 4 – 1 – 5 – 3
Trifecta: 4/1,3,5/Field ($18 for $1)
Exacta: 4/1,3,5 ($3 for $1)
Race 4 – 520M Grade 5 – 8:27PM
The well drawn Aeroplane Blazer has improved with every run from a spell and he looked super impressive when scoring at The Gardens in a slick 29.62. Tonight there isn’t a lot of early speed, he should be able to lead from go to whoa.
Gold Buccaneer has been very consistent without winning of late and he faces a big drop in class from his recent racing. Like the favourite, he should settle on the speed and if Aeroplane Blazer finds bother, he should capitalize. Senorita Selena is a highly promising speedster, my only concern tonight is that she makes her debut here and she is a little suspect over 500m.
Top Four: 1 – 3 – 4 – 7
Trifecta: 1/3,4,7/Field ($18 for $1)
Trifecta: 1/3/Field ($6 for $1)
Race 5 – 520M Mixed – 8:50PM
In what is a very classy affair, it is hard to look past the Group One Golden Easter Egg finalist Evil Punk. Before a luckless run in the final, he blew away a top class field when scoring in a sizzling 29.70. He is a very fast chaser on the bunny and he should salute tonight.
Hersi has strung together three impressive wins of late with two of them being over this track and journey. With the benefit of the rails draw, he should get the gun run and be a contender. Double Trigger has enormous talent but he doesn’t always put it together.
Top Four: 3 – 1 – 2 – 6
Trifecta: 3/1/2,4,6 ($3 for $1)
Trifecta: 3/1,2,6/1,2,6 ($6 for $1)
Race 6 – 520M Mixed 3/4 – 9:12PM
The speedy Chica Destacada has finally drawn a good box and I expect her to return to the winners list. In the middle of March she scored two sub 29.80 wins here and both times she showed great early speed. I expect her to make every post a winner.
Mexico City recorded his dazzling 29.58 PB here from this pin and he can ping the lids at times. With a slow beginner drawn underneath he should get every chance to muster speed in the early stages. Watta Lotto is the run on dog in the field, if you’re taking Trifecta’s and First Fours, he is worth anchoring for third and fourth.
Top Four: 1 – 8 – 3 – 4
Suggested Bet: Win bet on Chica Destacada.
Race 7 – 520M Mixed 4/5 – 9:35PM
In what is a very open affair, I think we have found some value with Kobi Jay. In recent times he has been racing in much stronger company and with the lack of early speed in this event he should get his chance to settle much closer to the pace. I think you can get $8 or better, massive over’s.
Pride Of Mykonos showed a return to form with a handy placing here last week, he has enough speed to lead again tonight and he may cause a boil over. Scout’s Gold is probably the fastest chaser but the box draw doesn’t help, he will be looking to get wide at the first bend and he will be relying heavily on luck.
Top Four: 7 – 2 – 1 – 3
Suggested Bets: Kobi Jay and Pride Of Mykonos win bets (more on Kobi Jay).
Race 8 – 720M Mixed 4/5 – 9:57PM
The highly talented Cyclone Simone is making her 720m debut and her recent 600m wins indicate that the extra distance should not be any concern. I’m expecting her to fire to the lead and to build up a big break mid race. Obviously the last 50m is a concern but she should have built up a race winning break by then.
My Asuncion is a professional placegetter and from her good draw, I’m expecting her to be in the mix again. She has the ability to lead or come from behind, great dog to anchor for second and third in exotics. Suits US has a solid record here and he was far from disgraced when placed here last week, keep safe.
Top Four: 3 – 1 – 2 – 8
Trifecta 3/1,2,8/1,2,4,7,8 ($12 for $1)
Trifecta: 2,3,8/1/Field ($18 for $1)
Trifecta: 2,3,8/Field/1 ($18 for $1)
Race 9 – 520M Grade 5 – 10:17PM
The speedy Belfast Kaiser showed a return to form with a top placing here last week and tonight he should have enough speed to settle in the top two through the first bend. He appears well graded tonight and he should be great value.
Unbelief looms as the obvious danger based on her brilliant 29.78 win here two runs back and she is blessed with sizzling early speed. She will be short but I expect her to be in the mix. Calamity Trigger has them all covered for ability but he can be poor to begin at times, major player if he can step cleanly.
Top Four: 2 – 1 – 3 – 8
Suggested Bet: Win be on Belfast Kaiser.
Race 10 – 520M Grade 5 – 10:37PM
The inform Stiff Arm showed a great turn of foot in his two Dapto wins of late, he has been placed in four of his six tries here and he looks graded to win tonight. If you can find $4.50 or better, great value.
American Sniper has looked ultra impressive in his two wins here of late and he continues to improve with every run. With the speedy Stiff Arm drawn underneath, he should get a nice cart across in the early stages. Super Miss Bowla can ping the lids at times, keep safe at odds.
Top Four: 5 – 6 – 3 – 8
Suggested Bet: Win bet on Stiff Arm.
3/1,3,4,8/2,7/1,2,3 ($24 for $1)
