The speedy FAITHY BALE has won her last five and there is no reason why she can’t make it six straight at Sandown tonight. can use her fantastic early speed to cross her rivals from the squeeze and will take a power of catching. If she jumps cleanly she wins. It’s that simple. SHANLYN DEANO from the rails draw is the obvious danger if FAITHY BALE doesn’t jump.
Tip: FAITHY BALE @ $2.15
Its a four dog race and there looks to be only one winner! SIR TRUCULENT is a seven-time winner over the 731 metres at Angle Park and has won three from his last four. With vacant boxes on either side, he should jump safely behind the speed and round them up comfortably in the back straight before spacing them late. With a PB close to a second faster than his rivals he will need a ton of bad luck to miss out. MISS BREAKOUT from the cherry is the likely leader and the only danger should things go poorly for SIR TRUCULENT.

The Joanne Price trained chaser INFRARED LAD looks well placed here. Having done his recent racing over the 520 metres, he steps up to the more favourable 600 metres tonight where he has enjoyed success nine times. Will appreciate the vacant box to his outside and should balance up early off the leaders before charging home late. He is the class dog in the race and looks the winner. With early speed and a good record, BIG NOSE JOHNNY looks his main rival.
