Returning the quickest of those heat times was the Lisa Cole prepared Big Time Dynasty who completed his assignment in a handy 26.16s. This son of Kiowa Producer and Ready Made Size controlled the pace throughout after he hopped away from the four trap and he will exit from the same trap in this decider.


His kennelmate Big Time Elsa also dictated the pace to her rivals when she cruised to her easy 26.33s heat win. This member of the promising Fernando Bale and Sweet Rubyjane litter has displayed promise and being allocated her first trap eight draw can allow her to adopt similar pace making tactics.


Bigtime Diesel was bold when he delivered his 26.18s heat win for his local conditioners Gary and Sandra Fredrickson. He took over the race lead when rounding the big sweeping bend here. He then went onto to endure a luckless Wednesday 520m race when he copped a decent check when rounding the first turn. He will be sighted wearing the black racing vest here.

John McInerney mentored the other two heat winners who are littermates. He also qualified another finalist, while his kennels provides the event’s second reserve. Morning Sun extended nicely during the run home which saw this son of Paw Licking and Embee Dee claiming his heat win in 26.37s. He has drawn poorly in the five trap.


His litter brother Summer Glee will be sighted wearing the white racing vest hereafter he completed his heat assignment 26.45s. He set up the pace to deliver his pace making win and that’s a tactic that he must employ in this event.


Slam It is a half brother to the two McInerney prepared heat winners being from the same mum by Ate To Much. He raced in the midfield from where he finished solidly to land his heat second 4.75 lengths behind Bigtime Diesel. He will be loaded away into trap two here.


That’s Frank delivered his best career race in his heat even though he is the second reserve here. He is a litter brother to Slam It and he was bold in the manner that he chased after Big Time Elsa for his 7.25 length heat second. It was the first occasion he returned to the postrace podium, which came in his 23rd career race.  


Nathan Udy has qualified two contenders and both of them are capable of snaring a portion of the stake here. Jay Mike is likely to relish racing from the ace trap from where he has compiled a sound record. This son of Winsome Opawa and Opawa Jay Jay gamely chased after Big Time Dynasty when closing to within a length of him.


Kennelmate Born Ellie was sound when this daughter of Barcia Bale and Opawa Born extended during the run home for her 1.5 length heat second to Summer Glee. She delivered that effort from trap six and she will be loaded away into the same trap on Monday.


Sue Gommans supplies the first reserve with Tuff Mr. Tee after this son of Oaks Road and Tuff Diamond kicked on soundly when finishing up 3.5 lengths astern of Morning Sun.
