Down to the final 48, with 8 heats on offer all kicking off from 6;35 and I have four selections that I think can go well.


Saturday – Heat 1 – Kilkenny Santy

My first selections run in the opening heat (635) and its one I fancied for outright honours and its Trap 3 Kilkenny Santy, ran a super race last week before been caught close home. There is plenty of early pacers in the race, so I expect a rush to the opening bend, but I think he has enough early to be in front again the opening bend and if so, I think he can make all. Of the rest Kildare will be fancied by many but I think he would prefer to be closer to the rail but if gets a clear run will be a main danger.

Saturday – Heat 3 – Signet Goofy

My next selection runs in Heat 3 (710) and its Trap 5 Signet Goofy wo has done very little wrong so far winning the opening two nights. This dog is all about early speed, so I expect him to break smartly and if doing so keep him unbeaten record going. Trap 3 Romeo Magico is the fastest in the line-up and certainly would have a say but I think this race will be won and lost at the traps and if traps like he has done in previous races and make all.

Saturday – Heat 4 – Singalong Sally

Onto my next selection which runs in Heat 4 (730) and its Trap 2 Singalong Sally, who is one of the fastest ladies in training. Won last week when hitting the lids and winning, I feel she is better drawn this week and if using that to her advantage can win again. Her main threats would be the defending champion Thorn Falcon who is yet to win a round of the competition so far but can run a big race, but I just think Singalong Sally is the class act and she is my Nap on the night.

Saturday – Heat 7 – Ballinabola Ed

And onto my final selection which is in Heat 7 (826) and its Trap 5 Ballinabola Ed, the ante post favourite who has been hugely impressive so far. He starts and stays and is the one they all need to beat. I do think this is a tough race thought with Aussie Captain, Bockos Belly and Narcos the Great with plenty of early speed and will be hard passed if leading but I think if Ballinabola Ed can trap slightly better he packs a punch from halfway and I think he can burn off the field off the second bend.
