The Form Hound’s Thursday Selections: April 7

 

Sandown Park

Race 3 Ron Nestor Memorial Heat 1

#4 Buck Forty

The winner of the 2015 Launching Pad series over this trip looks well suited in a Grade 5 heat here. I’m not concerned by the box draw as Etched in Black and Sir Bekim are unreliable beginners. Aston Kane looks the only pressure from his outside so I can’t see why he can’t get forward early and prove far too good for these rivals.

Sandown Park

Race 12 Ron Nestor Memorial Heat 3

#5 Lyka Allen

This chaser has cost me plenty lately but again he finds a very winnable race. He should lead his rivals on easily without much early pressure on his inside. He does his best racing when he can get to the crown of the track so I am hopeful he doesn’t get bumped on the first turn by Boss Senor or Fleetwood Zac, who are the other likely leaders. He looks very well placed here and my confidence level is high.
