The Watchdog says ?: Great race ahead and exciting youngster DR. SLATS (4) is expected to take a power of beating. He has won five of eight (62 percent) over this track/distance and if he were to reproduce his breathtaking 24.59sec PB run, they won’t get near him. He is still learning what it is all about and he will continue to get stronger, however with the empty draw on his outside, he will get plenty of room to balance up and he should be in control as they head through the first bend. OMEGA DODGE (2) has won a staggering 16 races here and he looks to be the likely danger. He has won three straight races in impressive style and he can put up similar times to the ‘Dr’, however he is likely to get back early on and he may not be able to reel in the tearaway leader. HA HA MACGYVER (8) has been quite impressive since resuming from a spell and he is drawn to get all the breaks early. He has a wonderful record from this draw and if he can reproduce his 24.65sec PB run here, he will put himself right into contention as they turn for home. JET LEE ROSE (3) rounds out the serious chances in the event. He returned to form with a dazzling 24.79sec win here and he loves racing around this circuit, but the slight concern is that there is an abundance of early pace on his outside, so he will need a few things to go his way initially. Fingers crossed DR. SLATS (4) can spear the lids and run the hands off the clock, and we might get to see him head to a metropolitan track soon enough.
Selections: 4 – 2 – 8 – 3
