Sandown Park: Race 3 (7:43pm AEDT)
No. 1 Manny Allen

Manny Allen was a dominant winner of a heat for this race last week and will take a power of beating again tonight. The son of Taylors Sky has recorded several pleasing results this time, but his most-recent performance was particularly impressive and suggested that he has found peak condition at the perfect time. Obviously, this is a step up in class, but he has the runs on the board and looks the one to beat again.

Sandown Park: Race 6 (8:40pm AEDT)
No. 8 Sweet As Emm

Sweet As Emm produced a career-best performance over 715m here at Sandown Park last start and can fight out the finish again tonight. The two-year-old has mixed her results this time, but she does have the lion’s share of tonight’s rivals covered on ability when she does put it all together. She’ll need to cross the field from Box 8 but does harbour a good turn of foot.

Back Up #3 Poke The Bear

Poke The Bear is clearly the major danger, but could get buried away in the field from Box 3. This looks like a great opportunity for a Back Up.

Sandown Park: Race 8 (9:28pm AEDT)
No. 3 Joyous Jill

Joyous Jill faces a step up in class into the eighth at Sandown Park tonight, but she has been racing well and looks huge overs at her current price. The daughter of Dyna Double One has shown particularly good form over the 515m course here at Sandown Park and ran home well to finish second two starts back, before recording a comfortable win last time out. With even luck, she can fight out the finish.

Sandown Park: Race 11 (10:31pm AEDT)
No. 1 Dr. Abbie

Dr. Abbie has been building to a big return to the winner’s stall and looks ready to do that tonight at Sandown Park. The daughter of Kc And All was caught behind runners but still worked home well to finish fourth at Sale two starts back, before finishing a half-length second at 520m last time out. She’s rock-hard fit and is suited to the inside box.
