The Form Hound’s Thursday Selections: May 12


Sandown Park

Race 5 Harrison Dawson Heat 1

#1 Blazin Bomber

The recent Speed Star winner sizzled around this circuit in 29.09 last week and even though he is against a full field here he looks drawn to perfection. He is 2/2 from this draw and has never missed a placing in seven starts from Boxes 1 and 2.

In addition, Bearville Azza tends to show great early pace and takes a right out of the boxes so this should give him additional room to muster. I am not sure Dalgetty is in the form he was several months ago so I am very keen on ‘The Bomber’ here.

Sandown Park

Race 10

#3 Dewana Babe

Even though this chaser is nudging 4 years old, she has still been racing with great heart against some of the top stayers going around. Last start at Traralgon she had no luck whatsoever and she kept finding the line strongly. She deserves another chance here.

Jayco Bale should act as a nice bunny for her and I have never been convinced he runs a strong 715 metres but I am not game to lay him off the cherry. Dewana Babe may be able to find the rails several lengths off the leader down the back straight and finish with a flurry. She could be outstanding value on the exchange.
