He is likely to push forward and find the lead again so he should take catching. DANGER: SHANNONSABLAST (6) is a promising maiden having been runner up at his past four starts and he gave INSTANT CHEMISTRY (4) a fright in the latter stages at Newcastle last week. He will have to work hard from his wide draw but he is worth following. OTHERS: SHOOTFORTHESTARZZ (7) circled around the field to race on the outside of the leader mid-race when a strong second behind the Bathurst Gold Crown winner Ultimate Art last outing. She has the class to test this field but couldn t have drawn worse than the inside of the second line. LIVELY RIVER (1) was a winner after gaining a nice trail throughout at Maitland on December 09 and is worth thought in multiple combinations from his ideal draw. SELECTIONS: INSTANT CHEMISTRY (4), Shannonsablast (6), Shootforthestarzz (7), Lively River (1) SUGGESTED BET: INSTANT CHEMISTRY (4) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Standout Trifecta with 4 to win from 1,2,6,7 (Cost $20, which gives 166%) 9 Pace 10.15 2044m. $8000.

He scored at Menangle three starts back and strikes a winnable race first up. DANGER: HANABANDANNA (1) beat easier opposition when she led throughout at Newcastle last week. She won easily on that occasion so she can take the next step forward, particularly from the pole position. OTHERS: MAJOR FRANK (9) returned to his best form when he sustained a strong run to dead-heat for first on Sunday. This race is no harder and he is a winning chance again if he gains some luck from the poor draw. HAVANA STAR (3) is racing consistently and is a place hope along with ESTAMPIDO (7) and RAWHIDE SHANNON (8).

DANGER: NEVER A FROWN (9) was an impressive winner at Newcastle on December 13 then followed with a seventh against strong opposition at Menangle and a fourth in a heat of the Inter City Pace on Sunday. This looks to be a suitable assignment and he is a genuine each way threat. OTHERS: SILVER HEARTLAND (4) came from the second half of the field and was very wide upon entering the straight when an eye- catching fourth on Sunday. He rates as a value chance on that good performance. ABERGAIL SHANNON (6) is a fast beginner from the mobile and led throughout to win comfortably at Tamworth last outing. She is widely drawn but is not without a chance. SELECTIONS: HAITE TO WAITE (8), Never A Frown (9), Silver Heartland (4), Abergail Shannon (6) SUGGESTED BET: HAITE TO WAITE (8) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 8,9/ 1,4,5,6,7,8,9/ 1,4,5,6,7,8,9 (Cost $20, which gives 33.33%) 2 Pace 6.42 2044m. $8000.

He worked hard and went down fighting when second in a fast 1.56.9 mile rate at Goulburn last outing so he should prove hard to beat again. DANGER: MASTER FIREHAWKE (6) is a former New Zealand pacer that beat an easier field on his Australian debut at Newcastle. He was impressive in that victory so he is capable of taking the next step forward. OTHERS: POCKET THE SHILLING (2) possesses early speed and led throughout to win at Maitland on December 09. He finished well when fourth on Sunday and should give a bold showing from the good draw. ANOTHER ACES (7) is awkwardly drawn but didn t have much luck and finished well on Sunday so he is capable of running into a place.

He is ideally drawn for this assignment and should go well. DANGER: DAN (7) has the perfect trailing draw behind VICTORY (1) and has been racing well enough to figure in the finish. He followed a solid fourth at Menangle with a big win in a 1.59.8 mile rate at Tamworth. OTHERS: HEROS GOLD (11) is a Riverina trained pacer that tried to lead throughout when fourth in a heat of the Inter City Pace on Sunday. He had his chance last time but this race is easier so a forward showing would not surprise. THE FALCON RAINBOW (10) finished on well at his first run since July then struck trouble in a heat of the Inter City Pace on Sunday. He is awkwardly drawn but rates as an each way chance. SELECTIONS: VICTORY (1), Dan (7), Heros Gold (11), The Falcon Rainbow (10) SUGGESTED BET: VICTORY (1) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Roving Trifecta with 1 & 7 the rovers into 3,6,10,11 (Cost $20, which gives 83.33%) 4 Pace 7.42 2044m. $8000.

This is a huge drop in class and he is clearly the horse to beat. Q1 DANGER: TOKYO DRIFT (2) trailed the eventual winner in Scarrymcleary throughout when he finished off reasonably well for fifth at Menangle last week. Apart from MANTOMAN (9), this is a suitable assignment so he should perform well from the good draw. OTHERS: KYEMA KHAN (6) is a tough type and will appreciate a drop in class on his latest efforts at Menangle. He hasn t won a race since September 2011 but he is a definite place chance against this class. LIBERALITUS (10) was a good winner when coming from the tail of the field at Newcastle last outing and is worth thought in multiple combinations. SELECTIONS: MANTOMAN (9), Tokyo Drift (2), Kyema Khan (6), Liberalitus (10) SUGGESTED BET: MANTOMAN (9) to win EXOTIC BET: Flexi Trifecta 9/ 2,6/ 1,2,4,5,6,7,8,10 (Cost $20, which gives 142%) 5 Pace 8.15 2044m. $10000.

He has been runner up in two of his past three starts in handy time and is ready to break through for a win against this class. DANGER: TORI JACK (5) has performed a little below his best form in his two starts since resuming from a break but he is a tough type and appears to be well graded against this line up. OTHERS: OHOKA UTAH (8) settled second last on the markers and picked up ground without threatening the winner in the latter stages at Maitland on Sunday. He has maintained a consistent form line this season and warrants consideration. JACCKA SINGH (3) will appreciate a drop in class on his recent efforts at Menangle and is not without a chance in this evenly balanced field.

He ran into the outstanding Scandalman when third in a heat of the Inter City Pace on Sunday and gets into this race nicely with a concession claim. DANGER: WESTERN DESTOYER (10) seemingly had his chance to finish closer when fourth in a heat of the Inter City Pace on Sunday but he is meeting a field of less depth here so he is worth an investment. OTHERS: DYNAMITE JACK (1) ran along at a hectic tempo when a creditable fourth at his first run since September and should give a bold showing from the pole position. SANADIK (2) and THE RED OPAL (4) are both minor place hopes in the event.

He drops back to a second row draw now but he is very tough and is clearly the horse to beat. DANGER: LIVING LORD (1) was attacked when leading and was still able to race well clear in the latter stages when he won his heat. He is perfectly drawn and is racing in peak form so he must be respected. OTHERS: MAJOR POST (2) has built up the imposing record of ten wins from twenty-four starts and led throughout to comfortably win his heat on Sunday. He was no match for SCANDALMAN (10) at Canberra prior but he is advantaged by the barrier draw so he could turn the tables. CHISNALL (6) didn t receive much luck in running but was still able to prevail on Sunday. He is shooting for six straight victories but this is probably his toughest test.
