Race one presents itself with an excellent opportunity to have a whack at a filly who ran strongly on debut.
The Punter’s Prince is also keen on a few each-way gambles at good odds throughout the card.
sandown race 1
Great debut effort from Hypothetical who was left a sitting duck out in front when trying to lead all way the into a vicious head wind at Mornington.
She did a great job from the wide gate, almost pinched the win and will take plenty of benefit from the run.
Soft barrier in this event and will be the one to catch.
Suggested Bet: Hypothetical win at $2.90
Confidence Rating: 8/10
sandown race 2
#5 young hostess
Young Hostess is chugging along nicely over the staying distances and takes a little drop back to 2100 metres here, which looks suitable.
Daniel Moor takes the ride from barrier two, and he should be able to position her up on the speed.
VOBIS Gold nominated, so the stable should have her cherry ripe for this event.
Suggested Bet: Young Hostess each way at $13 the win and $3.90 the place.
Confidence Rating: 5/10
sandown race 3
Went out way too hard for his liking in much harder grade at Flemington last start.
Drops back to Wednesday class and should find himself settling in a handy spot form the inside gate.
A drying track on the better side of a soft will also enhance his chances.
Suggested Bet: Kissinger each-way at $6.5 the win and $2.50 the place.
Confidence Rating: 6.5/10
sandown race 5
#5 air defence
Hoping they press forward with Air Defence because he has a solid fitness base under his belt to utilise in this event.
His form around the likes of Biometric, Bill The Boxer and Visinari reads well, and he comes up with good each-way odds.
Suggested Bet: Air Defence each way at $9 the win and $3 the place.
Confidence Rating: 4/10
sandown race 6
#2 silent surrente
The query here is whether SIlent Surrente can or cannot handle the transfer to turf from synthetic.
She has crushed the line in the first two runs of her career and will undoubtedly appreciate the rise in distance to 1600 metres based on what we have seen of her.
It looks as though she has a big engine.
Suggested Bet: Silent Surrente win at $3.50
Confidence Rating: 7.5/10
