HERE’S TEARS has been racing over the longer distances of late and will appreciate a drop back to the 595 metres. With a PB of 33.94 and from the inside draw he will give that time a shake tonight. Clearly, the best dog in the race and should have his opponents covered here. ZIPPING MAGDA from box 4 is expected to run her usual consistent race and can capitalise if the favourite falters.
Tip: HERE’S TEARS @ $2
This is a hot field of chasers with the Ted Medhurst trio FABULOUS BAROQUE, RAGING RALSTON and CONNECTED all in good form. FABULOUS BAROQUE lit up the track last week with a best of the night 25.87 from box 3. With 8 wins from his last 9 runs, the Blake Pursell trained SPRINT GORDON is airborne at the moment and can ruin the Medhurst party from the green draw. If he steps, he wins.
EMMAVILLE STAR is racing in great form, with three wins from her last five runs and was narrowly defeated last week at the track and distance. Can hold up from the rails draw and will be too strong for her rivals. OBLIVINATOR and WAIKAIRE BELL will keep her honest early and make the favourite earn her win.
