Fresh from chalking up his 100th winner of the season, reinsman Jack Laugher joined Jason Bonnington, Nikkita Ross and Andy Gath ahead of metro racing's return to Melton.

The Burning Questions panel took aim at four key races and also provided best bets for the Saturday night meeting.

On the agenda was...

  • Will Crime's Queensland form hold true back in Vic and is he just too fast here should that be the case?
  • Do we trust Celebrity to Runaway with class or does her recent trial make her one we'd like to pass?
  • Will Supreme be dominant by charging off the gate or is this Line Up's chance to show the stuff of which he's made?
  • Does Zeus end the fast class class trot with early, hectic pace or can his older rivals let him know he's in a race?
