SANDOWN R1 #4 WIDE AWAKE $6.60

This filly has come back very well this preparation. Winning first up at The Valley and then making good ground from the tail to run 2nd last start behind Miss Devine Em. If she can find herself in a more forward position, I think she has a turn of foot that can see her win this.

SANDOWN R4 #8 MAGNOLIA MAN  $3.35  #5 SAHAR $18.40

Magnolia Man was impressive when winning in New Zealand. He was strong late when winning at Waikouaiti, making a long run from home but still proving too strong late for his opposition. He recently jumped out well at Cranbourne, hitting the line under his own steam over 1000m and should be fit enough for this first up. I thought SAHAR is worth a saver after catching my eye at the Tatura jump-outs. He looked to travel well with Modear and recent big maiden winner Clever Cut.  

SANDOWN R8 #9 ANSWER ME HUSSEY $17.20

Still lightly raced and open for more improvement. Won well last start beating Designer Chef, that galloper has subsequently franked the form by winning a couple of races.

DOOMBEN R4 #6 RIGHTEOUSNESS $18.20

Should get a nice run from the barrier. Third up now from a spell, should have a good fitness base and drops 6kg in weight from the last start effort when running 4th at Sunshine Coast.

WARWICK FARM R2 #4 KINGSHEIR $1.92

Won well on debut beating Requited. That form has since been franked with Requited winning. Should keep improving with extra distances and end up in Saturday class.

TAUPO  R3 #2 PACKING NOBLESSE $2.75

Trialled well when in Australia. Ran really well first up in New Zealand and was not beaten far.

TAUPO R10 #7 CARAMEL POPCORN $4.00

Another Ex Victorian who ran a much-improved race last time out when running 2nd. Can go one better here.
