Sandown R1 #6  Bravestone $32.00

This son of Pierro first went to the jump-outs back in September last year. He also appeared at the public trials during the same month but was then put out for a spell. Since returning to the Cranbourne jump-outs in March this year, he looked to settle in a more forward position and crossed the line in a bunched finish that included Moi Choux and Commando Miss who was a few lengths behind and has subsequently won a maiden. How he will handle the soft track is an unknown, but you’re getting big odds to find out. #4 Beau Zoom looks to bring the best form into the race and looks the hardest to beat with Damien Oliver aboard.

Warwick Farm R2 #10   Pizzly $8.90

I tipped this filly last Saturday as the best of the day when she was going around at Hawkesbury. She opened about $3.00 and ended up jumping at $1.26 with some deductions included but was still heavily backed and expected to win.  Leading into that run, she hadn’t run a bad race, placing in her past two runs and finishing 4th on debut but not beaten far. I’m forgiving the disappointing run last start as there looks an opportunity for Avdulla to be positive today and take up the running. The early-pace at Hawkesbury was very slow and she may have been just unable to sprint as quickly on the heavy going. If she can make it a genuine run race in front, hopefully she can show her class. I won’t be losing on #6 Archanna, looked to handle the heavy going in latest trial and the work past the finishing line was great. Looks a nice stayer for the future and gets Jmac aboard.

Warwick Farm R8 #14      Kavalmo $5.10

After winning his maiden last preparation he was quickly thrown in the deep end and was contesting group races. A good suggestion the stable held him in high regards. I was then impressed with his trial when resuming this prep. He made a stack of ground late against the winner Cosmic Force, coming from last as they crossed the winning post, to be up almost level with the leaders shortly after. He didn’t have the best of luck last start, slowly away and then positioned near last, Hugh Bowman couldn’t start to build any momentum until the 300m mark. He still finished off nicely and had traffic issues over the concluding stages. Now 3rd up and reaching peak fitness, he has a smaller field to contend with and should be able to show that good sprint.
