Race 6:  No.3  NEVROM LION  ($2.20 with Neds)

The Craig Smith-trained NEVROM LION hasn’t missed a beat in his five career starts to date and looks the testing material again tonight. Last start, the Jungle Ruler gelding was coming a hat-trick (with three wins all on his home track at Roma), when he came to town and took on Class 2 field, here over the 870m sprint. He wasn’t disgraced in finishing second on the night, with the distance probably a little too short for him. He still managed to run his last 600m, 10 lengths quicker than benchmark, and post the fastest final 600m and 400m sectionals for the race. That was his first look at the Clifford Park track and stepping up in distance here will only enhance his chances. He maps to settle mid-field here from gate six and if he is the ‘Real McCoy’, he should go awfully close to winning this contest tonight.



Race 2:  No.8  WINDJANA  ($4 with Palmerbet)

Local trainer Lindsay Hatch saddles-up WINDJANA here who is a track specialist and second-up tonight looks the one to beat. Last start, the Headwater mare proved too good on fresh legs when she took out a BM0-58 Hcp, here over 1200m. She ran her last 600m, 2.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here. She also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Jake Molloy retains the ride and after his claim, the mare carries the same weight (55kgs). Already a winner when second-up and a two-time winner on her home track, she will take beating here.



Race 3:  No.4  MAEVILA RULER  ($4.60 with TAB)

Local galloper MAEVILA RULER returns from the city tonight and back on his home track, he looks a tough nut to crack. Last start, the Tycoon Ruler gelding took on the city class gallopers in a BM0-72 over the mile at Doomben where he wasn’t disgraced, finishing fourth in the 13-strong field. He ran the trip out, 4.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, setting a new personal best and the best in this field by 4 lengths. That’s good form to bring back to country class racing tonight where he is a four-time winner at the track. After the claim, he carries 54.5kgs, which 2kgs less than his Doomben effort. Drawn the fence, he gets the gun-run here and maps to settle mid-field. With a clear run to the line, he can give this contest a real shake tonight.
