Fleck mustered an enormous performance to run on for second here at Sandown Park last week and can go one better in the first tonight. The daughter of Dyna Double One recorded a dominant win at Cranbourne three back, in what was interestingly also the last time that she left from the rails draw. She can go straight to the lead and will be hard to beat.
Malayah Bale has only had two career starts, but she is clearly a greyhound of ability and she can record another win at Sandown Park tonight. So far she has been kept to races at Ballarat, but immediately stamped herself as one to watch when an easy winner on debut, before finishing second at her only other start. She has plenty of upside and will take beating.
This is a big drop in class for Aston Cade and he will be extremely difficult to beat, particularly after drawing the outside box. A two-year-old son of the legendary Fernando Bale, Aston Cade has been a strong and consistent performer this time and won four of his last seven starts, placing on two other occasions. He finished sixth at this track and distance last week, but it was in the Group 1 Australian Cup Final and this looks a far more appropriate task for him.
Bobby The Brute will take winning form into the tenth at Sandown Park and looks up to making it two in a row. The son of Kc And All was simply far too good for his rivals at this track and trip last week and as long as he steps well from the potentially awkward box, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.
