ALWAYS BOPPING (4) was driven with vigour here 3 starts back and continued on with it from gate 4 to find the front. Once in control, he kept them chasing and cruised home to a 10m victory. The 2nd line and then gate 6 have sullied his chances at his past 2, but he can bounce back here.
BOLTA (5) landed his best gate since arriving in Qld here last time out when coming up with the ace. Firing out to look for a dictating win, he was unable to see it out when wilting late to be 6m from the winner as a red figure fav. He might need to roll the sleeves here to make his challenge.
JAY DEE BE ROLLIN (2) made the most of conditions to take them all the way here 2 starts back. Inside the 2nd line was his undoing last start but with early bullets, he can feature here.
DEVOUGED (7) started from gate 9 last start and from back in the pack was trying to make a closing play when 3.5m from the winner. Buried in the run, he will be probing for openings.
SELECTIONS: ALWAYS BOPPING (4), BOLTA (5), JAY DEE BE ROLLIN (2), DEVOUGED (7)
SUGGESTED BET: ALWAYS BOPPING (4) to win
