SATURDAY night’s card at The Meadows is headlined by the three group 1 invitationals – the Temlee (525m), Rookie Rebel (600m) and Zoom Top (725m).

It looks to be a meeting that represents some good value so we’ve scouted a little wider than usual for some of our better bets on the program.

RACE 3 NUMBER 7 RESTRICTED

Very promising pup on the up and the reason we’re getting around the $3.6 mark for this is the fact he’s drawn awkwardly in seven. Was terrific when finishing a narrow second behind a very smart one at Sandown last start and if he can begin on terms tonight in the small field, really keen on his chances. Definitely a pup going places.

RACE 4 NUMBER 2 DURANT

Market has this a race in three between the inside trio. Granted Wallbanger off the red is the one to beat but confident that Durant can give him a real run for his money with the benefit of his recent first up run from a spell. Looks drawn to get a trail through early and providing he can stay in touch I’m giving a great chance of getting into the finish. Can move along a bit this fella.

RACE 5 NUMBER 4 JUST TERMS

Group 1 Zoom Top and it looks to map fantastic for Just Terms to finish hard late. Reckon her best form has been when in Victoria and if there’s any trouble up front expect she’s the one to take advantage late. Very competitive race, but at around the $4.60 mark, she looks terrific each way value.

RACE 9 NUMBER 1 SAY HI

With the benefit of the rails draw I’m with Say Hi to get the better of an airborne Faithy Bale, winner of the Ballarat Oaks on Wednesday night. Say Hi toughed out a gritty Sandown win last start and with the benefit of box one, and a fantastic Meadows record behind him, happy to lean his way at around the $3.50 mark. Winner of three from seven when sporting the red rug.

RACE 10 NUMBER 5 CAPTAIN CHAPPY

Very tricky race to close out the night where I’ve settled on Captain Chappy. Has had five starts, all at The Meadows, and finished in the money at four of them. Developing nicely and with one of the key chances Shima Rock drawn terribly in seven, giving Captain Chappy a terrific chance at the $6 mark despite the poor draw.
