CRANBOURNE Cup hero Jax Bale has spent the best part of his career racing the sport’s best.

Simon Told Helen, Aston Rupee, Shima Shine and Catch The Thief are just a handful of superstar’s the son of Allen Deed has matched motors with during his 64 racetrack appearances which has netted 17 wins.

And on Saturday afternoon, the bonafide group class sprinter looks to improve on that record when he steps out at The Meadows in race four from box two for trainer Andrea Dailly.

Remarkably, Jax Bale finds himself pitchforked into a grade 5 event, the powerhouse chaser going into the race off a sizzling last start 29.71 victory at The Meadows in free-for-all company.

THE MEADOWS FIELD AND FORM

The plummeting in grade should see Jax Bale prove far too classy for his opposition with Tab.com.au currently offering as much as $1.95 in the six-dog field.

Closest in betting to Jax Bale is kennelmate Indy Matilda at $2.60 from box one.

Winner at nine of her 22 starts, Indy Matilda is demonstrating plenty of ability and from the gun draw will be hard to beat.

But as they say there’s no substitute for class and Jax Bale exudes plenty of that going into Saturday’s suitable assignment.

Best Bet – Race 4 Number 2 Jax Bale

Next Best – Race 5 Number 3 Black Gemstone

Best Value – Race 8 Number 5 Radek Bale

Quaddie:  3,6,7 – 2,3,4 – 1,2,3 – 1,2,5
