He sat back, tracked up well in the three wide line and proved too good for Major Catastrophe 2100m mobile May 4. The 3yo has drawn poorly but he continues to improve with racing. DANGER: LORD JOWERS (4) resumes from a short break and the gelding was a 2150m mobile trial winner at Byford last Sunday in 2.01.9; 60.7, 29.8. He does possess gate speed. OTHERS: COPAGRIN (11) has returned to racing in fine form. He was a runaway winner 2100m mobile Monday. FANTASTYX (2) makes his local debut for Colin Brown and he has drawn nicely. LIVELONG AND PROSPER (10) may race better with a sit. REUBEN BROGDEN (3) and BLACK AQUILA (6) can figure.

He wasn't far away when 5th to Lombo Pocket Watch 2506m mobile April 27. He was always handy in the run when 5th to Mattnamaras Band 2506m mobile last Friday. DANGER: TURISMO (6) will be improved following one run back from a spell. He resumed from a spell when three back pegs and hampered for room late when 6th to Topnotch Dan 2100m stand Harvey May 8. OTHERS: ANVIL ATTACK (1) resumes and the 5yo does step well and he is always a chance. GDAY MATE (12) will appreciate a slight drop in grade. DALVEY GOLD (10) appreciated a fast speed when winning a 2506m mobile last Friday. ADDA TAK (4) could give cheek if he pings to an early lead.

He then rose in grade, drew poorly and never threatened when finishing 8th to Remember El 2100m mobile May 4. He drops back to an M1/M2 with a concession and the 7yo should give a great sight. DANGER: XUPAN THREE (2) resumed with a solid 3rd to Motoringwiththebest 2506m mobile May 4. He led and faded late when 5th to Davy Maguire 2100m mobile last Friday in 1.56.4. Big show. OTHERS: BORAT (10) has been freshened up since a close 2nd to Adda Paternal Suit at Pinjarra April 2. TOUCH ME TOES (1) loves this draw and has novelty appeal.

Look for him steaming home again and he must be considered an each way prospect. DANGER: HAS THE ANSWERS (5) returned to winning form last Friday when dashing forward early to take up the running and held on grimly late when dead-heating with Please Release Me 1700m mobile. OTHERS: THERECOMESATIME (2) has won his past two starts in the claimers. He has the speed to be prominent. LOMBO POCKET WATCH (6) continues to race well. The grey can figure in the finish.

His best chances appear to come early in the program with classy mares PASSIONS PROMISE (R1 No.9) and MISS TRICKIN LOMBO (R2 No.1), while unbeaten two-year-old GUARANTEED (R3 No.8) and star filly SHAKE IT MAMA (R4 No.4) also rate as top drives. MUST WATCH 1 7.12PM TONIGHT: Melton, Race 3. Unbeaten colt Guaranteed contests the Group 2 Tatlow Stakes final for two-year- old colts and geldings. 2 7.42PM TONIGHT: Melton Race 4. Shake It Mama and La Machane renew hostilities in the first semi-final of the Vicbred for three-year-old fillies. 3 8.42PM TONIGHT: Melton, Race 6. Braeview Creation, Beauty Secret and Real Bonus clash in the second Vicbred semi for three-year-old fillies. 4 9.42PM TONIGHT: Melton, Race 8. Make Mine Cullen is searching for her 35th career win in the Group 3 Ladyship Cup. Right in the money: Guaranteed maintains favouritism for tonight's Tatlow Stakes. Campaigning abroad: The Phantom is bound for the US. Shark bait UNTAPPED Toolern Vale juvenile Lennytheshark has been crunched in TAB Sportsbet's fixed-odds market for tonight's Tatlow Stakes final at Tabcorp Park. Opening at $12 after his eye-catching effort in the quicker of two Tatlow heats last Thursday afternoon, the John Justice-trained two-year-old is into $7 to break his maiden in style. Guaranteed retains his stranglehold on favouritism with TAB Sportsbet despite drifting from $1.70 to $1.75, while Keayang Starzzz ($5) and Almost El Eagle ($5.50) are the other runners in single figures. Mighty mare Make Mine Cullen has been the medium of strong support in the Ladyship Cup, turned in from $2.80 to $2.40, with only Pacific Playgirl ($3.80) considered a threat. Further afield, enigmatic squaregaiter Sundons Promise is the one punters want in Menangle's NSW Trotters Oaks at Group 1 level tomorrow night. Wound in from $16 to $8 with TAB Sportsbet soon after markets were framed, the maiden filly is back out to $11 in a race likely to be dominated by Victorian raiders. US expedition CHARIOTS of Fire placegetter and 4-Y-O Bonanza winner The Phantom will leave for a North American campaign with Aussie expatriate Noel Daley this month. Owner Merv Butterworth revealed his flying four- year-old would leave Luke McCarthy's Cobbity barn for a New York campaign on May 31. One of Australia's fastest beginners, it is expected the son of Bettors Delight will thrive under North American racing conditions and fulfil Butterworth's goal of northern hemisphere feature success. Inter Dominion and NZ Trotting Cup winner Cardigan Bay is perhaps the most famous Australasian pacer to campaign in North America where he became the first standardbred millionaire in 1968. This is big AFTER an overwhelming response in its opening fortnight, TAB Sportsbet's ''Harness This'' promotion promising $10,000 First 4 pools for every metropolitan race in May continues at Melton tonight. Outstanding dividends have marked the past two weeks, with feature race winners like Melpark Maestro ($49.80) and Brief Glance ($16.10) certainly helping the cause. Tonight I will be back on deck with suggested First 4's available on www.harness.org.au and tweeted out via @HRVnews throughout the program.
