Sandown: Wednesday January 6
Track: Good 4
Race 2: 1200m SW 3YO + Maiden
A solid field of 12 runners compete in the second event at Sandown today. We have 3 first-starters amongst the field.
The track is dry and the rail is in the +9m position. Having a rail to follow is always a plus for lightly raced horses. Being up on speed and close to the rail will be an advantage for these runners.
Popovich: From the dangerous Smerdon stable, Popovich has been a work in progress. He’s a trail veteran with the four official efforts plus a handful of jump outs. He once took Petite Filous all the way to the wire in a jump out and that was pretty impressive work.
Longkissgoodnight: The Hawkes trained galloper was trapped wide on an on-pace / inside day at Moonee Valley. Her effort to finished off was good on the day and bodes well for her second career run.
Disseminate: The Hayes trained Disseminate led a jump out before being run down by the highly promising (and debut winner) Movie. That was an impressive piece of work.
There’s not a great deal of ‘fat’ in the current markets but if we can secure $4.50+ on the exchange I believe Longkissgoodnight with an impressive debut run is where we should be placing our money.
