๐Ÿ‘€MUST-WATCH RACE: Healesville Derby Final

Form ๐Ÿ‘‰

The Watchdog says ๐ŸŽค : Awesome line-up and the two big guns in the series were dominant heat winners last week. BLACKPOOL FLASH (1) came into the heats as the best credentialed star, and he gave nothing else a chance when carving out an electrifying 6.43sec to the first marker before going on to score in a sizzling 19.16sec. He comes up with the right draw today, so he is expected to pounce on the early lead, and he could give the 19 seconds barrier a shake. PADDYโ€™S MARVEL (4) carved out similar sectionals before blowing his rivals away last week and, with a clean getaway, he can make the top elect work hard throughout. โ€˜Paddyโ€™ has won a staggering 14 of 21 and he has the potential to snag a few country cups in the coming months. HANDSOME JACK (6) has elevated his game in recent months and although poorly drawn today, he must be respected. โ€˜Jackโ€™ showed great pace in his first look at the track last week and he will have derived a lot of benefit from that run. With chasers the calibre of NIHARI BALE (5), ZACHARY (7) and RACK CITY (8) lining up at double figures odds, it indicates just how strong this final is.

The Watchdog says ๐ŸŽค : She is a very smart NSW speedster and she made one of Victoriaโ€™s best (Rilynn Bale) work overtime for victory here last week. Todayโ€™s line-up features some classy chasers, and she is awkwardly drawn, however she went through the first marker in a zippy 3.85sec last week and she will be even better for that run.

The Watchdog says ๐ŸŽค : BENCHESTER (1) should have a great battle with track specialist HELLO GEORGE (6) and from the inside draw a top two finish looks likely. GUNAI REBEL (1) will want to move to the middle of the track, but she should have more than enough speed to lead and will take a power of beating. BUSY TIME (3) has been luckless of late, and he will find this event a lot easier. He has been placed in four of five here and is extremely versatile. TIGER ISLA (3) is a jet will be carving out serious time out in front.

The Watchdog says ๐ŸŽค : He went through the first marker in an electric 6.43sec here last week and he recorded the fastest heat win in a sizzling 19.16sec. From the red draw he should be able to pounce on the early lead and if the track is in good condition he can push the 19 seconds barrier.
