Only two win bets to be placed tonight at Sandown Park which is a very quiet night for us but with two Group 1’s on Friday night at Albion Park we will look to have a few more selections for that. Our two bets tonight look very strong chances and we should be able to launch into Friday night with plenty in our pockets.
Our first selection comes up in race 6 on the card and MEPUNGA BLAZER looks extremely hard to beat from box 1. Two runs back he won the Group 1 Maturity Classic at The Meadows and I expect him to be running some serious time to put him right up the top on the SpeedStar Standings. He has only started from box 1 once in his career and on that occasion he ran a breathtaking 29.29 here at Sandown. If he jumps cleanly all eyes will be on the clock.
WIN BET – MEPUNGA BLAZER
In race 8 I am selecting the former South Australian WORM BURNER to be to good from box 3. He was extremely unlucky in his heat of the Victorian Sprint Nationals here two runs back and with some clear running early I think he can stalk the early leaders and get the job done. I think the favourite will be BLACK MUMBO who jumps from box 6 but I think he might be caught out wide on the first turn. If WORM BURNER can just sit behind those early leaders and work his way around the outside of them I am confident we will go home very happy.
WIN BET – WORM BURNER
Good Luck & Happy Punting!
