My thoughts for the heats today.
Heat 1 - Looking for a bit of value with the 3 inside dogs coming up shortish. Could be a mad dash to the first turn and I like Slick Ice $8.00 fixed from the 6. Good record at the track, handles wide boxes, not a lot of class / pace on its outside and I think should get a great run going into the first turn. Second pick would be Aston Bolero , flying machine GRP 2 placed behind forum favourite Zambora Brockie. Kilty Express and Lorimer Lad to fight out third, best roughy would be Coalville Tiger from the 5 box.
Heat 2 - Tough heat, no standouts in my eyes. Aston Ryder $7 fixed looks to get a good run in the early stages, nice win at Sale in 24.77. Bearville Azza made the Melbourne Cup final and ran 4th, but hasn't shown much lately. Not super stats from box 1 either. Asa Hard Knox has been racing in good form, but will need luck from the 5. Proven Kodiak has had some quick wins at Warrigul and will be running home strongly.
Heat 3 - Ultimate Magic $2.60 fixed is a speed machine, musters quickly and should lead from box 1. Diego Bale a chance to get a sit off the 1 is well drawn in the 2. Know nothing about Weekend Binge but has some very quick wins at Shepparton lately. One of my old fave dogs Igor Karkaroff to be steaming home if it finds the rails.
Heat 4 - My best of the card comes up here, love It's All Talk $4.40 fixed from the cherry. Has speed to burn and the 425m in my mind sees him out. Unlawful Entry would chase through a brick wall, but generally not as fast early as others. Jack Walker the best of the rest.
Heat 5 - NSW chaser Fancy More $4.80 fixed looks to be the early leader for me. Yanong has been going well lately and might get a nice cart across from the 3. Zoltina's Legacy is a quick short course runner, likes it out wide and has a perfect record at this track.
Heat 6 - Not keen on anything in this race.
Heat 7 - Shared Equity $1.65 fixed has come up short. Have gone for Black Mumbo $5 fixed, generally a good beginner who can muster, should be hard to beat. Sailaway Jackie,Shared Equity and Mumma Josie for the minor prize.
Heat 8 - A shoot out between Ando's Mac and Pantera Nera. Ando's Mac $3.20 fixed just because of the draw, Pantera Nera for second and Eddie Yap to sneak into 3rd place.
