Sandown Park: Race 5 (8:25pm AEDT)
No. 4 It's My Party

It’s My Party returned an impressive effort to only just miss here at Sandown Park last week, and she gets the chance to go one better in Race 5 tonight.

The talented daughter of Mepunga Blazer has found form around some quality chasers this campaign and getting out to 715m last week proved to be the correct decision at this point of her preparation.

She can use her good box speed to take up the running and she’ll be tough to catch.

Sandown Park: Race 6 (8:46pm AEDT)
No. 1 Fernando Bluey

Fernando Bluey is drawn to receive the gun run at Sandown Park tonight and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

The talented son of Fernando Bale simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race and has won seven of his last eight starts, smashing the clock on several occasions.

He’ll go straight to the lead, set a breakneck tempo and likely have a lot of these rivals beaten a long way from home.

Sandown Park: Race 7 (9:10pm AEDT)
Same Race Multi

Party Lights has been undone by wide draws at her last two appearances but can bounce back from the inside draw in Race 7 at Sandown Park tonight.

The daughter of Kinloch Brae recorded consecutive wins at The Meadows and here at Sandown Park three and four starts back, and has simply been set too great a task at her last two.

I’m going to select her as the winner in a Same Race Multi and fill out my ticket with both Lot Coin Babe and Aston Gwen running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 1 Party Lights (Win)
  • 4 Lot Coin Babe (Top 4)
  • 8 Aston Gwen (Top 4)
best bet
Sandown Park: Race 8 (9:28pm AEDT)
No. 4 Houdini Boy

Houdini Boy has a class edge over the lion’s share of his rivals at Sandown Park tonight and can record another win.

The classy son of Zambora Brockie has won six of his last eight starts, placing on the other two occasions, and he enters this race off the back of and impressive win in the Group 1 Sale Cup on Boxing Day.

I like that he’s a few weeks between runs and he needs only even luck to be in the finish again.
