The Form Hound’s Saturday Selections: April 9

Posted: April 8, 2016


The Meadows

Race 6 Hudson Pacific

#6 Major Jackpot

This chaser has tremendous upside as evidenced in the recent Launching Pad series at Sandown Park. The box doesn’t concern me as he can step right at box rise and he needs some space to kick into gear. Invictus Blu should also give him a great cart into the race as she shows early pace and heads across to the fence..

The Meadows

Race 10 Ron Nestor Memorial Heat 4

#6 Irish Sprite

In watching his wins over the provincial circuits, I have never been convinced this chaser can run a strong 500 metres. He goes very hard early in his races and is usually tiring in the latter stages of races, which is likely to happen here. I ‘m worried if there is trouble behind he could be way out in front but if any of Airbound, Quantum Bale, Evidence or Instant Allen landed right behind him down the back straight, they will run him down.
