The Form Hound’s Thursday Selections: April 21 – Sandown Park

Posted: April 21, 2016


Sandown Park

Race 1 Red Dog Run

#6 Bracket Creep

This chaser has won his last three races, two of which have been over this trip. However, the runs here have been in Sunday class and although this isn’t the strongest Thursday night Grade 5 you will see, I think he will struggle to get his own way in this event. His draw looks tough and he does his best racing when he can lead early. There is significant speed underneath him and I don’t think he will be able to cross these rivals on the first turn. He will burn a lot of energy trying to get forward and tire late.

#1 Eaton Bale

This chaser has a sizzling 34.18 over this trip and he has been racing in good form of late winning two of his past three starts. He’s strong as an ox and well suited at this distance. Strong speed early with Aeroplane Jack, Ballerino and Zipping Meg all chances to ping the lids and head for the rails. I expect Eaton Bale can settle just off the leaders and avoid any early bumping, click through his gears and sail around these rivals on the home turn and win. He’s likely to be good value here with Zipping Meg and Buck Forty always well backed.
