The Form Hound’s Thursday Selections: March 17


Sandown Park

Race 7 Launching Pad Semi Final 4

#3 Dundee Osprey


He set the track alight here last month running a sizzling 29.11 but I was very disappointed with his heat run last week. He was out in clear running by the distance boxes and had every chance to reel in the leaders and only ran a solid 29.91. He seems to want off the track early in his races and I can see Aeroplane Bob, Demon Bale and maybe Dance Craze coming across from their outside draws and cramping him early. There just seem to be too many “what if’s” with this chaser. He will be unders in betting based on that 29.11 run.

Race 5 Adam Dobbin Stakes

#1 Uni Student 


This chaser has only missed a placing twice in his 11 career starts to date. He is third up from a spell here and should be rock hard fit and ready to win. Last start he had an unfavorable wide draw and was checked several times around the first turn and this would have take a lot out of him. He kept chasing hard and really hit the line strongly. He looks very well drawn in the cherry here and Lika Storm (Box 2) and Awesome Danny (Box 3) should go in a straight line at box rise which will give him plenty of room to push through. He should power away from these rivals and I am keen to play.
