Sandown Park R6 – Mixed 4/5 595m
HOOKED ON SCOTCH (7) was an impressive all the way winner at his first attempt over the 595m a fortnight ago and will be better for that run. He has enough speed to cross the field and is clearly the one to beat. MEPUNGA MAGGIE (1) has drawn to get all the favours in the run and will be finishing strongly. She is the danger to the fav.
Albion Park R5 – Mixed 4/5 520m
This looks a match race between the two drawn the inside boxes in ALL HANDS OFF (1) and FEDERAL MORGAN (2). ALL HANDS OFF was an all the way winner from box 7 last week and is four from four over the trip. FEDERAL MORGAN has been sizzling around the Ipswich track and will jump favourite with a ton of early speed at his disposal. If ALL HANDS OFF finds the lead he wins, but he is also capable of taking the sit and finishing well. FEDERAL MORGAN needs to lead. I’m happy to take the black figures on offer for ALL HANDS OFF. The pair should space their rivals.
Tip: ALL HANDS OFF @ $2.4
Hobart R9 – Grade 5 461m
DIVINE JEWEL (7) looked the winner in his race last week before copping a squeeze and dropping out. Prior to that, he had been flying with a hat trick of wins. Drawn the seven tonight he can make amends and get the money. EXCITE ENOUGH (1) has good early speed and with a number of slow beginners drawn around her she will get a clear run early. She is one to include in exotics at juicy odds.
