Healesville: Race 10 (2:15pm AEDT)
No. 3 Lektra Elsa

Lektra Elsa loves racing down the straight at Healesville and looks well placed to return to winning form at Healesville this afternoon. The daughter of My Bro Fabio has returned several pleasing efforts of last, including a dominant win here last time. She never got into the race after running into trouble early last week but is primed for a big performance today and has the benefit of an empty box on her outside.

Healesville: Race 11 (2:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Coyote Ugly

Coyote Ugly is another dog that is looking to bounce back from a luckless effort when he steps out at Healesville today and he looks well placed to do so. The son of Dyna Double One has won three of his last five starts and is drawn to receive all the favours today from Box 1. With appropriate luck, he’ll be hard to run down.

Albion Park: Race 6 (8:55pm AEDT)
No. 3 Wazz's Out

Wazz’s Out has been in outstanding form of late and looms as the one to beat in the sixth at Albion Park tonight. The son of Barcia Bale won four races in succession, three of which in particularly slick time and ran on well to finish second in a tougher race here last time out. He’s rock-hard fit and needs only to step well to be in the finish.

Albion Park: Race 7 (9:16pm AEDT)
No. 8 It Ain't Billy

It Ain’t Billy’s strong form was rewarded with a smart win at this track and distance last week and he looks well placed to make it two in a row tonight. The son of Oaks Road has returned several pleasing efforts of late, but his last-start performance and win was particularly slick and a repeat of that effort would see him winning again.

Daily Dogs – Sunday, December 15

Richmond: Race 3 (6:38pm AEDT)
No. 3 Benji Buttons

Benji Buttons has been airborne of late and looms as the one to beat in the third at Richmond this evening. The son of Barcia Bale has won each of his last four races, each in excellent time and with even luck from Box 3, it’s tough imagining any of these rivals besting him.

Richmond: Race 7 (8:05pm AEDT)
No. 2 Legendary Opal

Legendary Opal has been a strong and consistent performer recently and looks a live chance again at Richmond. The son of Black Magic Opal hasn’t finished worse than second at his last five starts; recording a nice win at this track and distance two back before just missing over 330m last time out. Back to the 400m looks perfect for him.

each way
Richmond: Race 9 (8:47pm AEDT)
No. 1 Rampage Rascal

Rampage Rascal has mixed his form a little this time, but he has still returned several pleasing efforts and looks to have conditions to suit at Richmond tonight, particularly having drawn Box 1. The son of Comic Rumble typically keeps his best performances for Richmond and was a dominant winner in Grade 5 company here last month.

Richmond: Race 10 (9:05pm AEDT)
No. 8 Zen Mistress

Zen Mistress has been a model of consistency and looks a lovely bet in the tenth at Richmond tonight. The daughter of Fernando Bale hasn’t missed a place at her last four appearances; comfortably breaking her maiden two back before finishing second in a tougher race last time. A couple of her key rivals have only been fair at this grade, while she is proven.

Daily Dogs – Saturday, December 14

Wentworth Park: Race 5 (8:18pm AEDT)
No. 2 Street Brawler

Street Brawler has found a purple patch of form and looms as the one to beat in the fifth at Wentworth Park tonight. The son of Trewly Special rarely runs a bad race and has won each of his last three in impressive fashion. With even luck, he’ll be in the finish again.

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (8:43pm AEDT)
No. 1 Kipling

Kipling has been a standout performer this campaign and is primed to win another at Wentworth Park tonight after drawing Box 1. The son of Fernando Bale has won six of his last eight starts, four in particularly slick time and he is rock-hard fit for this assignment. If he gets a clear passage early, it’s tough imagining any of these getting the better of him.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (9:08pm AEDT)
No. 6 China O'Brien

China O’Brien has returned several pleasing efforts recently and looks tough to beat at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of My Bro Fabio hasn’t finished worked than second at her last three starts, which included a smart win in slick time from out wide here two back. A repeat of that effort would see her far too good again.

each way
Wentworth Park: Race 9 (9:49pm AEDT)
No. 7 Casino Ace

This is a decent race and Casino Ace was only fair to the line here last time out, but his form prior was excellent and I think he’s worth another shot at around the $7 mark. The son of Fernando Bale won three in a row leading into his last effort, including one in smart time at Richmond in late November.  

Daily Dogs – Friday, December 13

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 5 (7:19pm AEDT)
No. 8 Where's Ella

Where’s Ella has found a purple patch of home and looms as the one to beat in the fifth at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of Where’s Pedro has won five of her last six, placing on the other occasion and she was last seen recording a nine-length win at Nowra. A repeat of that effort would see her winning again.

Wentworth Park: Race 6 (7:37pm AEDT)
No. 4 Fernando Porsche

Fernando Porsche will take winning form into the sixth at Wentworth Park tonight and looks well placed to record another, particularly with an empty box on his outside. The son of Fernando Bale has mixed his form a little this time, but his last-start performance in slick time suggested that he has found top gear and with even luck, he’ll be in the finish again.

Wentworth Park: Race 9 (8:38pm AEDT)
No. 8 Miss Money Bags

Miss Money Bags doesn’t know how to run a bad race and looks tough to beat again at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of Barcia Bale won four in succession, including one in slick time at Goulburn two back and was last seen finishing third in Grade 5 company here. She can stay away from early trouble from out wide and finish over the top.

each way
Wentworth Park: Race 10 (8:57pm AEDT)
No. 3 Towering Dawn

Towering Dawn doesn’t win out of turn but is capable of a high-rating performance on her day and looms as a live each-way chance of saluting in the last ($11 at publish). The two-year-old hit the line well to finish third at this track and distance last time out and should be able to find a position close to the pace from Box 3.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, December 12

Dapto: Race 4 (8:13pm AEDT)
No. 7 Tiggerlong Blaze

Tiggerlong Blaze is seeking a hat-trick of wins when she steps out at Dapto tonight and looks the one to beat. The daughter of Dyna Double One has only made five appearances at the races since debuting in October but has continued to improve with each effort. This is a harder race than her last start win at Goulburn but it does look the next logical step, and she’ll have the benefit of an empty box on her inside.

Dapto: Race 5 (8:37pm AEDT)
No. 2 Fabrelass

Fabrelass has been racing well of late and looks a winning chance in a wide-open contest at Dapto tonight. The daughter of Fabregas recorded a nice win at this track and distance two back before fighting home well from a tough draw to finish third last time out. She’s rock-hard fit and with even luck, can fight out the finish again.

each way
Dapto: Race 6 (8:59pm AEDT) MEGASTAR FINAL
No. 1 Jamella Jet

This is an excellent edition of the Megastar Final, but Jamella Jet has found excellent form recently and looks over the odds to win after drawing Box 1 ($8 at publish). A son of the legendary Fernando Bale, Jamella Jet hasn’t missed a place in his last four start; recording a dominant win at Wentworth Park in slick time two back before finishing second behind Lightning Vision at this track and distance last week. He’ll need to be at his best to win, but he does look up to it.

best bet
Dapto: Race 8 (9:43pm AEDT)
No. 3 Blue Somebody

Blue Somebody has continued to improve with racing recently but his last two efforts, both dominant wins have been nothing short of outstanding and he looks beautifully placed to complete the hat-trick at Dapto tonight. The son of Ritza Lenny will require appropriate luck early from Box 3, but he has been performing extremely well from difficult draws since resuming and his noted box speed could prove the difference once again.

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, December 11

best bet
Albion Park: Race 5 (5:19pm AEDT)
No. 6 Tuta Time

Tuta Time has found a purple patch of form and looms as the one to beat in the fifth at Albion Park this afternoon. The daughter of Cosmic Chief has won four of her last six starts, including two at this track and distance most recently. Her form from central boxes is good and she needs only appropriate luck in running again to win.

Albion Park: Race 6 (5:37pm AEDT)
No. 2 Farmor Millers

Farmor Millers has returned plenty of pleasing efforts recently and will be tough to beat at Albion Park tonight after drawing an inside box. The son of Velocette rarely runs a bad race and flew home late to finish second at this track and distance last week, having drawn out wide. He can settle closer this time and finish over the top.

each way
Albion Park: Race 7 (5:57pm AEDT)
No. 6 Lil Bit Foxy

Lil Bit Foxy will need some luck from box 6, but she has been in terrific form of late and looms as a live chance at a nice price at Albion Park this evening ($7.50 at publish). The daughter of Paw Licking has missed a place only once in her last five appearances and she was last seen recording a smart win down the straight at Capalaba. This looks an open contest and she is up to winning.

Albion Park: Race 10 (6:47pm AEDT)
No. 1 Chasin' Charlie

There is no denying that Chasin’ Charlie has mixed his form since debuting, but he has shown glimpses of brilliance and the conditions of this race look like suiting. The son of Fernando Bale has had six starts for three wins, but also three flat efforts. He should be given every opportunity to bounce back into the winner’s stall from Box 1.

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, December 10

Lismore: Race 1 (6:43pm AEDT)
No. 8 Zanti Gracie

Zanti Gracie has only made two appearances at the races so far, but she is also yet to taste anything but success and can continue her rise through the grades at Lismore tonight. The daughter of Sulzanti showed ability at the trials and has franked that with two easy wins at Grafton. This is harder, but she’s up to it.

Lismore: Race 7 (8:40pm AEDT)
No. 8 Hey Charlie Boy

Hey Charlie Boy will return from a spell at Lismore tonight and looks ready to win. The son of Magic Sprite has made only one appearance at the races so far but showed good ability on that occasion and hit the line to finish third. He can stay away from early trouble from out wide and finish over the top.

Lismore: Race 8 (8:59pm AEDT)
No. 3 Demander Valley

Demander Valley doesn’t know how to run a bad race and looks tough to beat at Lismore tonight. The son of My Bro Fabio hasn’t missed a place in his last eight starts, which have included two wins in particularly slick time. He’ll have the benefit of an empty box on his inside for this contest.

each way
Lismore: Race 9 (9:18pm AEDT)
No. 1 Linley's Flash

Linley’s Flash faces a rise in class at Lismore tonight, but was an impressive last start winner and is up to winning again. The daughter of Magic Sprite has found form around some handy runners this time and a repeat of her last performance would see her in the finish of this at a nice price ($12 at publish).

Daily Dogs – Saturday, December 7

Wentworth Park: Race 5 (8pm AEDT)
No. 8 Wild Flyer

Wild Flyer will take winning form into the fifth at Wentworth Park tonight and looks well placed to record another. With the exception of one DNF, the daughter of Fabregas hasn’t missed a place at her last eight starts and a repeat of last week’s dominant win at Richmond would see her winning again.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (8:40pm AEDT)
No. 4 Zipping Potter

Zipping Potter is another dog that will take winning form into his run at Wentworth Park tonight and looks the one to beat again. The son of Mogambo recorded impressive and consecutive wins in late October and has been in the finish of five subsequent races, including a dominant win here last week. He’ll have the benefit of an empty box on his outside tonight.

Wentworth Park: Race 9 (9:26pm AEDT)
No. 2 Strike Power

Strike Power has found a rich vein of form and can make it three-in-a-row when she steps out in the ninth at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of Swift Fancy has won four of her last six starts, including one at this track and distance two back. She can go straight to the lead from Box 2 and will give them something to chase.

Wentworth Park: Race 10 (9:47pm AEDT)
No. 1 Mount Royal

Mount Royal does face a rise in class at Wentworth Park tonight, but she has been racing well and looks over the odds to salute at a big price ($21 at publish). The daughter of Tuiaki has been a consistent performer this time and recorded an easy win over 365m at Nowra two back before running fourth from a central draw at Dapto last time out. She’s drawn ideally and can fight out the finish again.

Daily Dogs – Friday, December 6

Healesville: Race 6 (12:42pm AEDT)
No. 1 New Sense

New Sense will take winning form into the sixth at Healesville today and looks well placed to record another. The daughter of Banjo Boy has continued to improve with racing recently, but her last-start effort suggested that the penny has dropped, and she’ll be given every chance from Box 1 and down the straight again today.

Healesville: Race 8 (1:14pm AEDT)
No. 2 North Wind

North Wind relishes racing down the straight at Healesville and looks the one to beat in the eighth today. The son of My Bro Fabio mustered a slick turn of foot to run on late for second here last week and if he can settle a little closer today from Box 2, he’ll be hard to hold out.

each way
Healesville: Race 12 (2:23pm AEDT)
No. 8 Run Maggie Run

Run Maggie Run has returned some competitive efforts here recently and looks a winning chance at a price in the last at Healesville today ($9.50 at publish). Her performance three back in a tougher race to place was particularly eye catching and she can stay away from early trouble from out wide in this contest.

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (7:30pm AEDT)
No. 1 Love The Lovely

Love The Lovely has been flying recently and is the one to beat again at Wentworth Park tonight, particularly after drawing the rails. The son of Kc And All doesn’t run a bad race and has dominated his last two starts. This doesn’t look any harder and he can make all again.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, December 5

Sandown Park: Race 5 (8:28pm AEDT)
No. 1 Sir Duke

Sir Duke is a consistent performer and strikes a very winnable race at Sandown Park tonight, at a nice price. The classy son of Kinloch Brae Recorded an impressive win from an inside draw at The Meadows in late October and has since returned three tough efforts, including two second placings at this track and distance. He’s rock-hard fit and should be given every opportunity to perform from Box 1.

Dapto: Race 5 (8:37pm AEDT)
No. 1 Tennessee Tiger

Tennessee Tiger is unlucky not to be chasing a third win in succession when he steps out at Dapto tonight, but he has drawn ideally and is primed to return to the top of the podium. The two-year-old son of Sh Avatar was impressive when an on-pace winner over 600m here two starts back, before another fair effort in a tougher race at Wentworth Park last time out. It’s hard to find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

Sandown Park: Race 7 (9:11pm AEDT)
No. 4 Aston Peroni

Aston Peroni has been airborne of late and with appropriate luck tonight, should prove too good for his rivals in the seventh at Sandown Park. The son of Black Magic Opal is capable of returning some slick times and he has won each of his last two races by a combined thirteen lengths. He can go straight to the lead, dictate terms and kick clear when turning for home.

Dapto: Race 7 (9:21pm AEDT)
No. 1 My Bro's Ethics

My Bro’s Ethics has been racing in typically smart form recently and looks well placed to return to winning form at Dapto tonight. The son of My Bro Fabio has finished a close-up second at each of his last two appearances, including a photo at Goulburn last week. He can go forward from Box 1 and give them something to chase.
