THE MEADOWS PREVIEW: Silver Chief Heats…You Beauty!

Saturday night’s racing heads 27 kilometres north of Melbourne to the Northcorp Boulevard location of The Meadows. With the first race set to run at 7.12pm and the last at 11.05pm, we look set to witness eleven top class heats of the Group 1 AJS Corporation Silver Chief on the 12 race program.

After placing third in a Melbourne Cup heat behind Lamia Bale (Replay), Jesaulenko (pictured with trainer Terri Morris) returns to the race track exiting box one in the opening heat of the Silver Chief.


The Gippsland trained youngster posseses the ability to generate speed quickly and given he can retain the rails in the early part, he should be hard to beat.

If you’re looking for a danger or one to play in the multiples, Igor Karkaroff looks the one as he’s drawn to follow the rails into the action.

‘In Race 7 I’m keen on SNAKEBITE BALE and ZIPPING CHUBBZ, with the former reminding me of a young DYNA DOUBLE ONE’

The Group 1 Hobart Thousand winner from Thursday night goes around from box three in heat five (race 6). There’s no doubting Unlawful Entry may be a shade below his best after flying home just 36 hours before his assignment on Saturday night but I’ll be expecting the Bravo camp will do a tip top job in preparing him for the three week series.


In race seven I’m keen on both Snakebite Bale (reminds me of a young Dyna Double One) and also Zipping Chubbz.

Both have the ability to reel off some incredible sections and with an ounce of luck should fight the race out.

If you’re looking for a get out in the lucky last race then I’m suggesting a trifecta with both Mepunga Joffa and Harlon on top from the 2,3,5 and 6. If Mepunga Joffa can repeat his smart 30.16 win five runs ago (Replay), he should be right in the finish.

So many potential stars of the future will be setting foot on The Meadows venue at the 525m start, and we look set to enjoy a bumper card of racing.
