He kept finding out wide when 3rd to Mohegan Sun 2130m mobile February 15. The 7yo drew well, led and never in danger when defeating Hokuri Handrail 2130m mobile last Friday. He can overcome the draw. DANGER: FLIP THE COIN (3) looks hard to beat as he should lead. He led throughout two starts back at Pinjarra then had a tough run when 10th to Callaway Bromac 2185m mobile Pinjarra Monday. OTHERS: TAKEABOW (10) resumed with a late finishing 3rd to Taiaha 1730m mobile February 15. GATE BENDER (9) is racing consistently and he will have admirers. SCUBA STEVE (4) will be nearing his peak following three runs back from a spell. CATCH ME RIGHT (8) just needs luck from an awkward draw.

He showed speed to lead and always in control when defeating Captain Proud 2150m mobile Harvey February 12. Drawn wider but he does possess good speed and looks hard to beat again. DANGER: NORTHVIEW PUNTER (7) has won 7 of his 11 starts and despite the draw the colt is bound to be in the mix. He has led throughout in his past two starts against weaker opposition. Can do it tough. OTHERS: ANOTHER VINNIE (2) was a strong winner 2100m mobile Bunbury last Saturday. The draw suits. GETAWAY PLAN (1) resumed with a 1780m mobile Northam victory February 14. He strips fitter for this assignment. BETTOR PARTY (5) is a capable type resuming. MACHS A PEARLER (8) has claims.

The 6yo has matured of late and is now racing consistently. He travelled midfield and looked the winner a long way from home before defeating Jaccka Felix 2536m mobile last Friday. Ideally drawn. DANGER: JACCKA FELIX (10) won well at his local debut when breezing throughout 2130m mobile February 16. He then battled away well when 2nd to Pride Of Colorado last Friday. Big show. OTHERS: DASHING CHRISTIAN (12) ran on well at his second run back from a spell and he can figure in the finish. BETTOR STILL (1) will be prominent but leading isn't a formality. TOPNOTCH DAN (3) enjoyed a soft run last Friday when 3rd to Dundee Three. SIR ARTSPLACE (8) won impressively last Friday. SELECTIONS: PRIDE OF COLORADO (2), Jaccka Felix (10), Dashing Christian (12), Bettor Still (1) SUGGESTED BET: Flexi First Four 2, 10 / 1, 2, 10, 12 / 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 10, 12 / FD (Cost $30 for 11.11%) 6 Pace 11.15 2130m. $17500.

This draw isn't ideal but the pole-marker will lead and that indicates this 6yo will be dangerous late. DANGER: DHONI (1) has been a model of consistency this season finishing top three in 11 of his 12 starts. He ran on well to defeat Franco Jazzman 1730m mobile February 15. Hard to beat. OTHERS: EMPIRE FLAME (9) has won four races this season and the 7yo should give a great sight. BLACK N BETTOR (5) has shown a drop off in form of late and is capable of better. I COURAGE (2) will appreciate a good draw and he should be handy. IM ELSA (3) will be handy throughout.

She has been racing consistently throughout her campaign garnishing four wins and four placings from eight starts. The 6yo sustained a three wide move when 3rd to Famous Alchemist 2130m mobile last Friday. DANGER: FAMOUS ALCHEMIST (10) is unbeaten in three starts in W.A. She has been blessed with good draws when leading throughout in each of those victories. This is harder but she looks a good type. OTHERS: LIVE HIGH (9) didn't have the best of runs when unplaced behind Famous Alchemist last Friday. She can improve. AUSSIE MADE LOMBO (11) has performed well since arriving in the West. The 5yo can play a part. COOL ADDA (7), LEDA McNALLY (6) and ALKIRA JETSTAR (12) have claims despite awkward draws. SELECTIONS: CENTREFOLD ANGEL (2), Famous Alchemist (10), Live High (9), Aussie Made Lombo (11) SUGGESTED BET: Flexi First Four 2, 10 / 2, 9, 10, 11 / 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12 / FD (Cost $30 for 9.25%) 8 Pace 12.05 2130m. $21000.

TAB CODE W H TOUCHTONE 25 SKY RACING 1 TONIGHT HOT TO TROT DEAN BRAUN Melton Trainer Dean Braun has a strong team at Tabcorp Park, Melton, tonight. He kicks off with classy mare VALIANT SUE (R3 No.4). He has the two hot favourites in the Tontine Series finals, with rising star MAGICAL TELF (R6 No.2) in the pacers division, and recent Kiwi import DUKE OF THE MOMENT (R8 No.8) in the trotters. He has talented mares MACHABIBA (R9 No.5) and CUTE ART (R10 No.6) in heats of a C1 series. MUST WATCH 1 5.45 TONIGHT: Melton, R1 (Stormed Out and Indulgent in the Vicbred Platinum Country Series K final) 2 6.38 TONIGHT: Melton, R3 (The Midnight Reign, Tara Toplady, Valiant Sue and Majestic Reign clash in leg one of the Big6) 3 8.10 TONIGHT: Melton, R6 (Magical Telf contests the Tontine Pacers final) 4 8.40 TONIGHT: Melton, R7 (Great Southern Star aspirant Ridgehead Cahore makes his Australian debut in the Trotters FFA) 5 9.10 TONIGHT: Melton, Race 8 (Former Kiwi Duke Of The Moment headlines the Tontine Trotters final) OF THE BES with MICHAEL POLSTEST ER 1 STORMED OUT WIN BET (R1 No.1, Melton tonight) 2 WASHMEPOCKETS WIN BET (R4 No.7, Melton tonight) 3 MAGICAL TELF WIN BET (R6 No.2, Melton tonight) 4 DUKE OF THE MOMENT WIN BET (R8 No.8, Melton tonight) 5 NARREE BELLE WIN BET (R10 No.5, Melton tonight) HARNESS HOTLINE with JASON BONNINGTON Local hope: Restrepo will fly the flag for Victoria in the Chariots of Fire on Sunday. Out: Shayne Cramp. Bets on Christen HONDO Grattan-winning Kiwi pacer Christen Me has been the best-backed runner for Super Sunday at Menangle, firming from $3.20 to $2.30 with TAB for the Group 1 Chariots of Fire. Outstanding against much easier company at his first Aussie outing, Cran Dalgety's son of Christian Cullen again impressed, winning a star-studded trial this week over Im Themightyquinn. Kiwi compatriot Smolda has been solid in Chariots betting at $3.50, while Victorian star Restrepo has drifted from $3.80 to $4.20 despite his excellent form this campaign. In Inter Dominion final betting, there's been little movement since Monday's barrier draw, though Hunter Cup placegetter Jaccka Clive is in to $16. The biggest firmer since pre-post markets were framed is Mah Sish ($101 to $7.50), along with Jaccka Clive ($101 to $16) and Chariot King ($301 to $21). Four-time Treuer Memorial winner Washakie ($10 to $51) has been the biggest drifter, ahead of Bitobliss ($15 to $26) and Excel Stride ($11 to $16). Other notable firmers on NSW's richest race day have been Kiwi comeback kid Stig ($3.60 to $2.80 favouritism) for the Glenferrie Farm Challenge. Victorian mares Blucolla Tigerpie ($12 to $10) and Broadways Best ($13 to $11) also have support in the Ladyship Mile, but remain relative roughies behind Our Sixpence at $2.80. Jackpot lure IF fixed-odds markets for all 10 races from Menangle on Sunday aren't enough to entice punters, the Victorian TAB's $40,000 quaddie jackpot and $200,000 pool guarantee may just get them in. Incorporating the NSW Oaks, Ladyship Mile, NSW Derby and Inter Dominion grand final, all at Group 1 level, the quaddie looks loaded with value, courtesy of deep and even fields. The TAB has also released head-to-head markets on six of the seven Group 1 races. The most perplexing of the markets is in the NSW Oaks, where $2.75 race favourite Rozelski is a $2 outsider against Im Smouldering at $1.80. Other markets feature Our Sixpence vs Bettor Cover Lover, Guaranteed vs Majestic Mach, Christen Me vs Smolda, Im Themightyquinn vs Terror To Love and Stig vs My Escapee. From a parochial point of view, the best of several boutique bets offered by TAB may be that the Inter Dominion winner will have qualified in the Melton heat ($4.20). Menangle heads that market ($2.70), clear of Alexandra Park ($2.90) and Gloucester Park ($3.10). Cramp ban VICTORIA's leading trainer Shayne Cramp was disqualified for six months on Tuesday night after a post-race incident on February 12 at Mildura. Cramp, who leads the Victorian Trainers' Premiership with 72 wins for the season, was charged with foul or reckless driving likely to endanger people or horses. Harness Racing Victoria stewards imposed one of the heaviest penalties in recent times on Cramp, who was forced to scratch his runners from Sunday's Charlton Cup. Cramp applied for a stay of proceedings, to be heard by the HRV RAD Board this afternoon.
