Sandown racecourse edge

Race 6

3 Jacquinot Bay (Hayes & Dabernig / Williams):  doesn’t run the 2000m but comes back to the 1600 here which suits.  Blinkers go on and gets Williams aboard.

5 Onpicalo (Price / Oliver): held on to win last start and can improve again off that.  Should lead.

10 Plein Ciel (Weir / Allen): ran third first-up at Warrnambool on a slow track, with the second quickest 400m before knocking up.  Should be able to run to best here.

Race 7

1 Leotie (Dwyer / Allen): ran very well last start and step to 1600m suits.  Could improve again.

2 Pedrena (Price / J Bayliss): won well at Caulfield.  Steps to 1600m for the first time but should be right to hold.

3 Soho Ruby (L Kavanagh / Baster): also goes to 1600m for the first time.  Covered a fair bit of ground at Flemington and can hold form here.

7 Windbern (Price / Oliver): totally missed the start last time before flying home.  Should be able to box seat here.

Race 8

1 Zamzam (Hayes & Dabernig / J Bayliss): won well the other day and stays at the same trip.  Very honest galloper.

4 Widgee Turf (P Payne / Allen): was backed up quickly off first-up run, getting back and battling.  Produced peak figure third-up last prep, looks overs here.

5 What A Shock (Ellerton & Zahra / Aitken): led at Ballarat running a terrific time.  Can hold that here.

8 Barbie’S Boy (Bonella / Thompson): got a long way back at Sandown and made up a lot of ground from the 800 – 200 before tiring.  Can improve.

Race 9

1 Cannyescent (Hayes & Dabernig / Oliver): racing consistently, won well in Sydney, very honest.

3 Thelburg (Sadler / Allen): won last two.  Should roll forward here from the wide barrier, going well.

7 Act Of Valour (Dwyer / Williams): been terrific this prep and should roll forward.  1400m suits.

11 Strike Force (Moroney / Childs): had a freshen-up and goes okay fresh.  Consistent and will be on the speed.

14 Data Point (Kent / Nolen): resumed after being gelded and went super.  Holds that rating here.

3, 5, 10 / 1, 2, 3, 7 / 1, 4, 5, 8 / 1, 3, 7, 11, 14
