Sandown Park R5 – Group 2 McKenna Memorial Final 595m
A crackerjack field will line up in the Group 2 McKenna Memorial and luck in running is sure to play a huge part in the result. TRUE DETECTIVE (2) has won five from seven at the track and distance and was an all the way winner from box 1 in his heat last week. I think he can find the top from box 2 and lead all the way. LAST HURRAH (1) was good last week when finishing second from a wide draw and from the rails tonight, he can box seat behind the leader. These two can stay out of trouble while their rivals jockey for clear running. It is going to be an exciting race.
Sandown Park R7 – Mixed 4/5 515m
ZAMBORA SMOKEY (1) has been sizzling around the provincial tracks with 15 wins from 22 runs and makes a much anticipated Sandown Park debut tonight. Expect him to explode out of box 1 and lead all the way. YOZO BALE (5) was a Group 2 winner at Bendigo last start and can cause an upset with a clean getaway out of the squeezebox. He looks the danger.
Angle Park R9 – FFA 600m
COORONG LUCY (1) pinged the lids as expected last week to win comfortably on her 600m debut. With that run under her belt and drawn in box 1 tonight she can go even quicker. This is a great chance to use Price Push. TOORA ZIGGY won well last start and is a clear second pick. Include him in exotics.
