SANDOWN LAKESIDE R5 #3  ALTAI RANGER $14.60  #7 A PINCH OF LUCK $3.05

Altai Ranger improved a lot last start when ridden more positive. Callow went on and he ended up bolting in by 4L and the margin could have been further if ridden out to the line. This is harder but looks each way value. A PINCH OF LUCK was jumping out well before the debut win at Ballarat. She bolted in by 6L and also recorded a good time on the clock for a maiden.

SANDOWN LAKESIDE R7 #10 LEGEND OF ZORRO $4.20

I think this gelding can keep progressing through the grades. He won at Swan Hill by 3.5L and still had something in hand. The 2nd placed horse Wardy Boy has subsequently won.

SANDOWN LAKESIDE R9 #6 SOMERSET MAUGHAM $3.35

A former import who is going to keep improving with racing and rise in distances. Stepping up to the 2100m a big tick.

ROUGHIE

MUSWELLBROOK  R3 #12  SWAYSIR  $33.00 #7  ARZU $6.60

Convinced there is enough ability there to win a maiden. Trialled well a few times against handy opposition and if ridden in a forward position can give this a big shake at odds. Handy drop in weight too.  ARZU ran well enough first up off a long break. She felt the pinch late but will be fitter for the run and the 4th placed horse Now or Never has subsequently won.

GUNDAGAI R3 #12  ROCK ‘n’ TORI $6.80

This mare contested a decent maiden on debut with a few subsequent winners franking the race. She then made good ground last start at Wagga and looked strong through the line. Will be improved with those runs under the belt and can break the maiden status today.
