The “Bottley” Green Memorial Maiden (R6) is the feature on an eleven event program at Tattersall’s Park tonight.

Lashing Illusion for Mangalore trainer Alan Anderson looks well suited in box seven and if the prepost odds of $5.00 stand up she should be very good value.

This daughter of Lilli Pilli Lad ran Sonorous to three lengths last Thursday night and her adjusted time of 26.48 means she will be right in this race.

Her main opposition will come from Miss Mohar for Rowella trainer Terry Penny who jumps from the cherry and Ocean’s Twelve having his first Tasmanian start for John Pearce.

The return of Rewind (R7) in the Invitation is highly anticipated after his trainer Maurie Strickland had to scratch his kennel star from the Tasmanian Sprint Final. Jumping from his favourite pink box he will start a warm favourite to beat track record holder Bergermeister who he beat at Devonport two starts back and New Recruit who claimed his scalp last week at Devonport.

November Digger should also be taken in the multiples.

Exo Energy (R9) looks to be a very smart pup and should be followed with confidence.

Best Bets: R1 No 6 Smokin’ Banzai, R5No 5 Pendle Beri, R7 No 8 Rewind.

Best E/W: R2 No 7 Oh So Fast, R6 No 7 Lashing Illusion, R10 No 3 Amazing Albert
