Darren Weir has a few serious chances that look well placed and hard to beat. Our top selection won by 7 lengths last start and looks hard to beat once again.
Sandown is racing on a Good 4 with the rail True the Entire Circuit.
ALFA ORO looked ultra-impressive when winning by 6 lengths at Pakenham last start and can make it back-to-back victories in the opening event of the program here today. Looks a standout, the one to beat.
1st: No1 ALFA ORO 2nd: No2 Leatherhead; 3rd: No5 Zaidin; 4th: No9 Light Parade
Mick Price trained HIGH RATIO has drawn to get the run of the race and could be a knockout hope here today. Resuming from a spell but showed good fight when winning by 1.2 lengths on debut back in December. Key player.
1st: No2 HIGH RATIO; 2nd: No1 Kinky Boom; 3rd No4 Rays’ Dream; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No3 Yulong Wain
Sticking with the ultra-consistent AROHATA to bounce back into the winner’s circle after a couple placing at her past few starts. Beaten by 1.5 lengths by The Housemaid and can atone for that defeat here today. Trainer and jockey have a great combination when combining. Winning hope.
1st: No16 AROHATA; 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No12 Rakovsky; 3rd: No15 The Housemaid; 4th: No7 Latin Beat
HOLY COMMAND (NEXT BEST BET) is a lightly-raced gelding that looks well-placed to rack up the hattrick of victories here today. Proved too good when defeating Good Oh by 1.7 lengths last start at Cranbourne. Has the form and shapes as the one they all need to beat. Big show expected.
1st: No2 HOLY COMMAND; 2nd: No4 Wanna Be Good; 3rd: No5 Columbia; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No1 Red White and Blue
Sticking with OUR REGAL WARRIOR (BEST BET) who gave his rivals a galloping lesson when streaking away to an impressive seven-length victory at Geelong last start. Will strip fitter second-up and going on his victory last start, he will be in this for a long way. Clearly the one to beat.
1st: No9 OUR REGAL WARRIOR; 2nd: No7 Golden Key; 3rd: No8 2 Straviera, 4th: No4 *SCRATCHED* Hope Ya Don’t Mind
Lightly-raced AROHA TE MANA will be better suited in this grade and has drawn to be very competitive here today. Beaten by 5.4 lengths at Flemington last start behind Mr Money Bags. Drawn to get the run of the race and will be coming home strong late. Big chance.
1st: No4 AROHA TE MANA; 2nd: No5 Nangawooka; 3rd: No1 Penthouse Poet; 4th: No8 Hell On Earth
THE STATESMAN just missed at Gawler last start and looks well-placed to atone for that narrow defeat here today. Will strip fitter third-up and trainer and jockey have a great combination when combining. Looks well-placed and looks hard to go past. The one to beat.
1st: No6 THE STATESMAN ; 2nd: No2 Another Coldie; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No5 Kaching; 4th: No1 Al Haram
JENNIFER LYNN looks well-placed after being beaten by 3 lengths at Caulfield last start by Rillito. Will strip fitter second-up and looks a leading contender here today. Will settle near the rear and be saved for one crack at them in the straight. Win won’t shock.
1st: No7 JENNIFER LYNN; 2nd: No5 Wayanka; 3rd: No10 Red Is The Rose; 4th: No6 Hunting Hill
Hard to go past ACCREDITATION in the last race of the program here today. Beaten by 3.3 lengths at Morphettville last start and will appreciate coming back to a more suitable race here today. Drawn well and looks a serious chance.
1st: No3 ACCREDITATION; 2nd: No1 Robbie’s Star; 3rd: No7 Snipfit; 4th: No2 Zadon
