Tips – Thursday 16th May

Sandown Park R4 - Sandown Cup Heat 2

(715m) 7:04 pm

VALPOLICELLA (4) is one of Australia’s best stayers and is confident after her recent win in the $500k 715 at The Gardens. She has won at the track before and has enough early speed to find a good spot in the run. She is the clear top pick. ZIPPING NEUTRON (6) has a great winning strike rate and is rock hard fit from his recent races. He will keep the favourite honest despite a poor record at Sandown Park.

Sandown Park R7 - G1 Sapphire Crown Final

(515m) 8:10 pm

CRUISING DEBBIE (1) fought back strongly when headed to win her heat last week and looks beautifully drawn down in box 1 tonight. She has won 4 from 5 at the track and trip and looks the early leader. She is the one to beat. AUNT VIRGINIA (7) is the strongest chaser in the race and has won her last couple of starts. She will need some luck in running but will motor home. She is the danger.

Sandown Park R8 - G1 Harrison Dawson Final

(515m) 8:31 pm

The Jason Sharp kennel pair AFIRE (1) and MORTON (2) are set to battle out the finish here. AFIRE has won his last 5 and was the fastest qualifier, with a blistering all-the-way win from box 6 last week. Drawn box 1 tonight, he only needs to step cleanly to prove too good. MORTON dug deep to win as a short-priced favourite in his heat and is sure to pour on the pressure throughout. The pair can space their rivals.
