With both eyeing off a start in the Miracle Mile in late November, both will be trying to impress to grab an elusive invite to the best sprint race in Australasia.

Here are the three best bets to have on your side at Melton
 
EACH WAY
Race 2 - No 1 Alta Tearaway (Ladbrokes Australia)

Looks perfectly drawn from gate 1 here tonight and Jason Lee in the cart is only a positive. From the draw it'll have the option of leading or, as I suspect, handing up to the fast beginner Our Bellabro. In my opinion, Alta Tearaway has the faster sprint, especially if David Miles aboard Our Bellabro decides to walk them in this. Also looks a certain quinella for exotic punters.
 
EACH WAY
Race 5 - No 2 La Machane (Luxbet)

Forget she went around here last Friday night over the 2240 metres. Stuck 3 wide without cover in the final lap isn't her go and she battled to the line after a tough run. From gate 2 and over the sprint trip looks perfect for her racing style, especially if Greg Sugars can get her to the pegs first. She has an impressive sprint record with 5 wins and an unlucky 3rd from 6 starts. I'm very keen on her chances.
 
THE ROUGHY
Race 7 - No 2 Because I Can (Unibet Australia)

Whilst I don't think he can win, he certainly looks an attractive place bet at big odds. First up at Melton a fortnight ago he copped a check early on and settled at the tail of the field. Rounding the home turn on the back of Abettorpunt, he rushed up to the leaders and looked a chance, only to have his run end short of the line.  2nd up from gate 2, he will be the first to the pegs and will more than likely take a sit on Smoken Up. That'll give him every opportunity via the sprint lane, hopefully enough to snag a placing.
