With a superb record here on his home track, this race comes up at the perfect time for LIFES BLACK (1) to claim a qualifying victory. Backing up from Tuesday where he was bereft of all luck after being angled to the pegs and then never spotting a gap. A winner here 2 starts back, he can dictate in this.
SO BOBS YOUR UNCLE (4) has been threatening without landing a winning blow in recent outings, the latest when using the passing lane from the pocket trail to grab the silver behind LE TISSIER. Locked away 2 starts back as BELLA BALL TERROR dictated, he can look to throw down the challenge.
ALI DOWNUNDER (3) settled 5 back in a single file line last start before sliding up the leader DANCE IN THE SUN from the 600m. With a sub 28 closing panel, he outlasted the leader with a smart victory and with a good record here can feature.
PEBBLE SANDS (7) was a winner here last start when spearing out from gate 4 to take them all the way. Runner-up here 3 starts back when trying to lead throughout, he will be ready for the lane.
SELECTIONS: LIFES BLACK (1), SO BOBS YOUR UNCLE (4), ALI DOWNUNDER (3), PEBBLE SANDS (7)
SUGGESTED BET: LIFES BLACK (1) to win
