Form prior was solid and looks the one to beat if begins cleanly. ZENA ZARA (2) is a speedy customer who should find the front from barrier two. Expect her to run a bold race and prove hard to run down if left alone in front. BIG BAD ERROL (7) disapointed when 11m 4th when well in the market in 1609m C0/C1 here on April 18. GEORGE LOCHINVAR (10) tends to do a few things wrong but could easily sneak in to the placings at big odds. SELECTIONS: GABILOUISE (3), Zena Zara (2), Big Bad Errol (7), George Lochinvar (10). 2 Pace 1 85197 GETMESHOESJOYCE 2 57127 SPACE INVADER NZ 3 31s51 YOUNG TOMMY 4 51692 BARRABOOL 5 62353 PEACEHAVEN COTTAGE 6 97665 CHARLIE CORDAY 7 34059 PAGAN LOVE 8 75798 ITS STAMMER NZ 9 325s2 KIEWA VALLEY 10 43418 ALICLAY 7.17 2030m. $5200.

Likely to get back in the field from the wide draw and be winding up strongly at the finish. YOUNG TOMMY (3) got a lovely run behind the leader from the inside draw and worked clear in the straight to score 1.9m win in 1609m C1/C2 here on April 25. SPACE INVADER (2) is better suited from this gate after being restrained from a wide alley last start and finishing 8m 7th to Tomorrows Dream in 2030m C0/C2 here on April 18.

Likely to have improved from that experience and proved hard to hold out in this. HARRISBURG (8) did plenty wrong at Penrith last start before fighting back in the straight to score narrow win in 1720m 2A0/2A1 at Penrith on April 23. SATIN BALL (3) is still learning what it is all about and looms as a nice each-way chance. STAR OF WICKLOW (5) deserves to be included in first run back from a spell.

Since had short break and drawn a little wide but has enough class to overcome both. NEPTUNES TREASURE (10) settled back in the field before finishing stronly to score 3.5m win in 1609m C3/ C4 here on April 20. ABADATTITUDEEAGLE (7) worked forward before settling outside the leader and dropping out to finish last at Menangle on April 21.

DASH OF CLASS (7) got held up for a run before charging late for 8m 5th in 2140m C4/C6 at Bankstown on April 27. XAVIER (2) is a consistent pacer who is rarely out of the money. He started favourite against similar opposition at this track and distance last start and broke at the start before placing neck 2nd to Im Theodore on April 25. PONDEROSA MEL (1) settled three back on the fence before working to the line strongly for 3m 4th to Im Theodore in 1609m C5/C7 here last Saturday night. SELECTIONS: OLLIES BEACH TOWEL (5), Dash Of Class (7), Xavier (2), Ponderosa Mel (1). + The betting odds quoted in this form guide are an assessor’s estimate of the odds which will prevail on the date of the particular racing event and are not necessarily the odds that may be offered by a licensed bookmaker.

JACCKA SINGH (3) won a heat of the NSW Derby before finishing a gallant fourth to Captain Joy in the final at Menangle last Sunday. LUCKY VISTA (2) was the best of the rest behind Captain Joy in the NSW Derby heats before being buried deep on the fence and never really getting in to the race when a distant 9th in the final.

Fitter for three runs back from a spell and drawn to get the run of the race. MISS MERRYLANDS (8) scored a nice win in 2300m C2/ C3 at Menangle on April 14 before racing behind the leader for the majority and finishing 12m 5th to Surfing Star in 2160m C3/ C5 at Harold Park on April 24. NAPA FRANCO (7) ran 9.1m 4th to Jennas Ranger in 2030m C3/C4 here last start.

She won on debut as a heavily backed favourite back in April 2007 and looks the one to beat in first run back from lenghty spell. BADLANDS ELLE (2) travelled outside the leader for the majority when 9m 6th to All Smoked Up in 2030m C0 at Newcastle on April 30. OUR GRECIAN KING (8) finished strongly after being hemmed deep on the fence when 5.5m 4th in 2030m C0 here on April 25. EVAS SONGBIRD (1) is a sneaky hope of running in the placings from the inside gate.

HURRICANE HOMER (8) scored a nice win at Tamworth prior to slightly disappointing 6m 6th as favourite in 2030m C0 here on April 25. KARAMEA HOLMES (7) did plenty of work before parking outside the leader and finishing 8m 4th to Bara Bert in 2030m C0 here on April 30. DOUBLE REDUNDANCY (5) should be nearing peak fitness after two fair runs this preparation. SELECTIONS: HIDDEN MOTIVE (9), Hurricane Homer (8), Karamea Holmes (7), Double Redundancy (5).

He’s drawn well and should be hard to beat. BEHIND ENEMY LINES (1) recorded consecutive wins here before being bad to begin when down the track behind Undertherainbow. Can run a race from the draw. PREZ (6) is drawn wide but was a good winner two starts back before being placed behind Castlemara. TIBETAN RULER (8) should get a nice run from the draw and wasn’t far away last time when 4th behind Moriarty last time. WUNLASTCHANCE (10) was a good Port Pirie winner three starts back and he covered ground last time behind Castlemara.

He started favourite behind Jazzstar last time and looks hard to beat. LA BELLE DE FLAMME (8) has won eight of 20 races and returned to form when a soft Whyalla winner last time. He’ll get a good run here and should be thereabouts. FRAGMENTS (10) is racing in good style and she came off the speed for a good win over Beautiful Drive. She’ll need some luck from the bad barrier but can figure prominently. KEEP SECURE (7) recorded consecutive win here before working when favourite before finishing down the track behind Port Decanter at Port Pirie. Improver. TAYUS (2) is nicely drawn and wasn’t far away at Port Pirie last time. SELECTIONS: DUMBO JET (1), La Balle De Flamme (8), Fragments (10), Keep Secure (7) 3 Pace 1 94535 PRINCESS NIFFE 2 9s322 WHATA ABOUT 3 27686 ROYCIE 4 35648 CULLENS HOPE 5 354s4 RARE RESPONSE NZ 6 95642 VILLAGE POP 7 57s71 CELESTIAL PRESENCE Second Line 8 33137 MATTS PRIDE 9 84116 MORIARTY NZ 10 11111 BADLANDS CHIEF NZ 7.22 1800m. $5000.

This is a tough test from the draw but he looks up to the challenge. RARE RESPONSE (5) is fitter for one run back from a short break when he covered ground late and stuck on well behind Warrior Kye at Stawell. He’s drawn poorly but has appeal. WHATA ABOUT (2) is nicely drawn and has been placed at each of three runs since coming to SA. He can go close from the draw. CELESTIAL PRESENCE (7) is drawn wide but he won well last time when driven off the speed to run down Born To Groove. CULLENS HOPE (4) is drawn in the middle and has won 17 of 42 races. He has claims with the right run.

He’s clearly the one to beat. HISTORIC DRIVE (6) got closest to LIGHTNING MCCOOL on that occasion and is obviously in contention again, although the comparative draw is identical to last time out. RAISINA RUCKUS (5) is a fresh horse on the scene and beat HISTORIC DRIVE last time out. He’s definitely worth consideration, while BIG RUSTY (4) did a few things wrong when running third in the same race and can improve. CAPTAIN RAMA (8), SIGN OF ANGELS (1) and SAFE OPPORTUNITY (9) should go into thought for the multiples but there really only looks to be four major winning chances. SELECTIONS: LIGHTNING MCCOOL (7), Big Rusty (4), Raisina Ruckus (5), Historic Drive (6) 5 Pace 1 04111 VITAL ASSET 2 36452 INNER PEACE 3 17121 JAZZSTAR 4 3s587 SNEAKER 5 49132 RABAHERO 6 2s113 OUR LANGEE NZ 7 58322 BORN TO GROOVE Second Line 8 8s535 YOUNG WALTON 9 65872 MISSILE LAVROS NZ 10 31131 OLLATON (ODM) 8.22 Q2 2230m. $5000.

He dashed home in 58.4sec when leading throughout here two starts back and must be rated highly from the pole. OLLATON (10) also is in peak form and was tough as nails last time when he sat without cover and proved too tough. He’s sure to be prominent again. JAZZSTAR (3) is a smart sit-sprint mare who hit the line hard last time and should be thereabouts despite slightly stronger opposition, while former Vic pacer OUR LANGEE (6) has been competitive at all three SA runs, the latest when he was beaten 3.5m when buried back on pegs. RABAHERO (5) is retuning to something like his best and could run into the multiples with some luck, while stablemate INNER PEACE (2) has the draw to bring him under some notice. YOUNG WALTON (8) follows through VITAL ASSET (1) and is capable of a forward showing.

Last start she beat him a head after starting inside him; tonight he has the potential advantage of a good trail from the inside of the second row. They look two of the major chances, along with WAITPINGA BAD BOY (9), which drew wide when beaten 8.2m by that pair last time out. SEEL A CORKA (2) is well-bred and put in an improved effort on Monday night behind SMILEYS A CORKA (7), who was also improved but likely to be tested by the draw here. Have to respect IMACHICITOO (1), who is in good hands, from the pole. SELECTIONS: BARODA BANDITO (8), Clarenden Electra (4), Waitpinga Bad Boy (9), Imachicitoo (1) 7 Pace 1 15321 RAZA SHARP LOMBO 2 23635 LOST KEYS 3 36542 LOADEDBELLE 4 08327 PALIS HOPE 5 20974 CAIRNCURRAN NZ 6 6s869 SASSY SEELSTER 7 78611 CHA CHA CHARLIE Second Line 8 24288 VALERIAN PASS 9 3394s VIRGINIA ART 9.22 Q4 2230m. $4250.

There’s every chance he can lead from the pole and expect he won’t be any fancy odds. CHA CHA CHARLIE (7) comes into this off back-to-back Whyalla and Port Pirie wins and suspect he can be competitive again here - although this is obviously harder. LOADEDBELLE (3) doesn’t salute the judge with any regularity but he’s been in very consistent form this season and comes off a good second behind One Ace Wonder in a handy 2.00.1. LOST KEYS (2) is another with a place chance, while PALIS HOPE (4) and VALERIAN PASS (8) are others to consider for the multiples. The query runner is VIRGINIA ART (9), who has placed in three of five starts but is first-up since June 2007.

Have a slight leaning towards Mohua, who is shooting for four on the trot from a potentially tricky draw. She’s been running slightly quicker times than ONE ACE WONDER and two starts ago over this distance covered ground before winning by 20m. It’s impossible to fault the consistency of ONE ACE WONDER, who has placed 12 of 15 this time in and shouldn’t be far away here. DALLAS GETAWAY (6) has been another regular placegetter of late and ran well from an even worse draw last time out, while LINVELJACK (3) can improve on what he did first-up from a spell. Expect YMBRO NIKY (9) to be around the place as well from the second row. She just needs a little luck - something she didn’t have when second behind Keep Secure.

The start prior to that, he protested unsuccessfully and was beaten only a head by SUNDONS PRIDE (12), who starts here off 40m. Despite the handicaps, it wouldn’t surprise to see the pair fight out the finish of this race as well. Expect KEYSTONE MAORI (2) will be around the mark stepping off the front - he’s a last-start winner with a good overall record - and MISSY CALDER (7) is another going very consistently. TAKE THE LOOT (4) is worth keep safe, while MANDAWARRH (5) meets her last two conquerors MISSY CALDER and KEYSTONE MAORI on better terms tonight. She could be the improver with David Harding back in the sulky. SELECTIONS: MR WHIZZER (9), Sundons Pride (12), Keystone Maori (2), Mandawarrh (5) 10 Claiming Pace 10.52 1800m. $2000.

STREETEM (7) was 2nd, beaten a head, in the same race here last time after working to the lead and shouldn’t be far away again, while IM GAUCHO (8) is a tough old campaigner who won at Pirie last time and should never be left out of calculations. SALDIVAR (3) bobs up every now and again and has the draw to be included in the exotics.
