This looks a match race between odds-on favourite MEPUNGA SPECTRE and LONNIE MACH. LONNIE MACH is a safe beginner who should cross easily from box 4 and set up a nice lead down the back. He can hold off MEPUNGA SPECTRE and looks good value here. BISENTI looks the best of the rest.
Tip: LONNIE MACH @ $3.20
LEMONADE KID sizzled around here a fortnight ago in 17.47 and a repeat of that will see him winning again. With great early speed and the inside draw he ticks all the boxes. ALMAPA BERISHA from box 7 can carve across the field and looks the only danger.
Tip: LEMONADE KID @ $1.75
TUTA TIME has been flying since relocating to North Queensland, including consecutive wins at Rockhampton over the 407 metres at her last two runs. Her last start win by over 10 lengths was eye-catching and this doesn’t look any harder. Apart from bad luck, ROSE ALI from the pink is the only danger.
