Sandown Hillside R1 #8  AMOROSITY $8.60

I thought she looked like a real speedster in her first preparation. She won a jump-out under her own steam and the opposition were ridden to try and keep up. I have heard the trainer mention he held her in high regard early, hence why she was thrown in the deep end on debut and contested a group 3. Fair to say she was a bit disappointing in that first preparation, but she was given plenty of time to mature when spelling and looks to have returned in good order. She was slowly away at Pakenham first up but really found the line, running the fastest last 200m. The start is most important, if she can get away cleanly and find the front, she will take a stack of running down.

Sandown Hillside R4 #10   BLENDERS EDITION $5.70

I think this son of Trusting was good when first up at Bendigo. The leader and winner, Reine Happy was able to sneak a break on the field when entering the straight and went on to win by 2L. This guy made good ground from midfield though to finish 3rd and ran the fastest last 200m of the race. Both Reine Happy and Evening Glory have somewhat franked the form since by being competitive again in their next starts. The extra 200m should suit and Damien Oliver staying aboard looks a good push for his chances.

Warwick Farm R1 #4  ACROPHOBIC $4.05

This two-year-old colt looked like he had a bit of style when running 2nd at his first trial. He comfortably beat home Marnix, who had already been to the races and won a maiden at Geelong. The concern is the horse who beat him in that trial, My Empire has not exactly set the world on fire since. He contested two more trials since then and has a good grounding for this. At the most recent trial he looked to beat home Panna Cotta, fair and square with both under riding. James Mcdonald keeps the ride which can only be a good push.
