Race 5 – Allied Express Pace – This main event will see a total of $22,000 in prize money on the line. Franco Nelson will be the short priced favourite despite scoring a wide barrier draw. He comes into this race with some great form over this distance already this year, winning at Goulburn and then a 3rd before scoring a big win here. After a mid field finish over a mile he returned to distance on this track last start with another win. Will take some beating. Aztec Bromac is an experienced trotter who showed great improvement in his last outing, very nearly scoring a feature finish. Has firmed in betting, coming in from $7.50 and will be a genuine contender in this. Crockets Cullen has featured solidly in all of his last four runs, but has failed to get a win in any of them. A regular to this track, he’s ready to win. Murano is in a purple patch right now, featuring in his last four straight, winning twice, including his last start. Looks better suited to the mile, but current form cannot be ignored.
Betting: Franco Nelson $1.36; Aztec Bromac $6.00; Crockets Cullen $10.00; Rocker Band $11.00; Outrageous El $18.00; Celestial Arden $21.00; Murano $26.00; Mach Beauty $34.00; Better Than Max $41.00; Double Event $51.00.
