Sandown Park R4 – FFA 515m
TIGGERLONG TONG won the Group 1 Harrison-Dawson two runs back and looks a class above his rivals back to FFA company tonight. From box 2 in the small field he can find the front and run terrific time out on the arm. Expect him to lead all the way. PROVIDENCE BALE (8) has recorded six wins on the trot and with good box manners he can sit outside the favourite early. He looks well placed for the quinella spot.
Albion Park R8 – Group 2 Flying Amy 520m
I’m tipping an upset in the Group 2 Flying Amy. LOUIS RUMBLE (7) came across from box 8 to cover ground in his heat win last week and was still strong to the line in the wet going. He can get a cart into the race from ORCHESTRATE (6) and defy all catching once again. JUNGLE DEUCE (1) will jump favourite from box 1, but he will need plenty of luck at box rise. I’m happy to take him on.
Tip: LOUIS RUMBLE @ $6.50
Hobart R9 – Mixed 4/5 340m
FABULOUS BAROQUE (4) is the class runner in the race, with 25 career wins including two from three ver tonight’s short course trip. He drops back in distance and will appreciate the long Hobart straight. With even luck from the awkward draw, he will finish too strongly for his rivals. GERSHWIN RHYTHM (5) has won three from his last four and did win from box 5 here last month. The pair look settle to battle out the finish.
