Daily Mail: Get ready for a dust up

An intriguing battle between youngsters Eat My Dust v Shima Bolt looms large at Ballarat tonight, along with the appearance of excitement machine Gypsy Wyong (3 from 6).

Watch Gypsy Wyong (2) winning at Sandown Park

Quaddie punters at The Meadows will find it hard to go past Zipping Zarbo (25 from 54) as a banker in the last leg at 5.20pm, as the prolific winner looks to bounce back after running 3rd to the mighty Qwara Bale last start. The Watchdog’s Quaddie tips

Earlier at The Meadows, watch for the David Geall-trained King Of Glory (5 from 9), whose dam is multiple group winning WA superstar Pepper Fire.

And a tantalising duel awaits at Cranbourne tonight between kennelmates Rilynn Bale (28 from 58) v Rocket Boy (21 from 43), plus be sure to scroll down for ? The Watchdog’s $10 spend



? Ballarat ? Race 10 ? 450m 9:58pm

The Watchdog says ?: SHIMA BOLT (8) is bred to be a star being a younger brother to superstar Shima Shine, and he showed he is a serious prospect when posting a breathtaking 21.89sec win here two runs back. His box manners are not great, but from the wide draw he should get every chance to get balanced and hit his stride as they leave the mat. With a clear passage, I think he can give the 25 seconds barrier a serious nudge. EAT MY DUST (1) had punters jumping out of trees when backed off the map at Sandown Park two runs back and he did not disappoint when scoring in a sizzling 29.57sec. There is a slight concern with the drop in distance tonight, as he does not possess a whole lot of early speed, but from the inside draw he can settle a little closer to the speed than normal and he can make the top elect work hard throughout. HUSHING DUSK (5) is an interesting runner. She hails from a strong US dam line, and she has been super impressive in her brief career to date. She is up against it from a tough draw tonight, but with an ounce of luck early she could cause an upset. FREYA BALE (7) rounds out the genuine winning chances. She comes into this having not been headed in her two runs. This is clearly a lot harder, but her brilliant early speed gives her a chance.

The Watchdog says ? : OSPREY ROSE (4) has been impressive to date, and she should be in the top two for most of the journey. ZIPPING ZARBO (7) carved out ridiculous sectionals here on Saturday night and she will find this event a lot easier. DAPH’S ASCEND (3) has a terrific turn of foot and will get a nice run through behind the inside two runners early on. TALBINGO BALE (8) is the real deal and with only a field of three tonight he should be able to light them up soon after box rise.

The Watchdog says ? : BLAZING NENNA (5) scorched early in her top 24.83sec Sale win and she will be suited to this distance range. With an empty draw on her outside, she will get enough room to find her feet and I would expect her to assume control as they head into the bend. She has been racing in much stronger company of late, so with a trouble-free run, she is expected to prove too classy.

? $3 Win – SHIMA BOLT
? Ballarat ? Race 10 ? Box 8 ? 450m ⏱ 9:58 pm        ***Must Watch Race***
TAB fixed odds: $2.70 Win

The Watchdog says ? : SHIMA BOLT (8) is still learning what it is all about, but he really put the writing on the wall with a breathtaking 21.89sec win here two runs back and will appreciate the slight rise in distance tonight. He will miss the kick slightly, but he does explode soon after the start, so he should be able to assume control after around 60m or so and from there on he will take a power of beating.
