Lovely Banks trainer Brett Bravo opens the 12 race card at Sandown Park on Thursday night with two exciting youngsters. Let’s take a look at the first event set to jump at 7.07pm.
Single Sticka (Pictured box one) lines up in the first event well drawn from box one. After bursting on to the scene with a complete dominance of the Cranbourne Vic Breeders Series (520m) (Replay), this star youngster has raced without any luck in his past two outings and I will be expecting he’ll bounce back to his brilliant best in the opener.
I think Sausage Sizzle appears ideally drawn in the second event with the Bravo kennel searching for an early double in the first two races – both from the rails alley. She can often take a stride to get going in the early part but her cruising speed is very impressive. Five runs ago she produced a super slick 29.90sec win at The Meadows over the 525 metre distance (Replay) so with that in mind, she looks the goods here.
Come On Fantasy should quite simply be a case of short but sweet in the sixth event of the night. After placing in the Group 1 $108,000 Zoom Top to No Donuts two starts ago (Replay), she looks set to dominate the mixed four and five with a massive drop in class. She looks the best bet for the card and a terrific anchor for the Quaddie.
After a string of eye catching placings, Snakebite Bale steps back up to the 595m in the seventh race. I think he has the potential to develop into a superstar 600 metre plus greyhound over the next few months. Rated a $2.80 chance in The Watchdog formguide, he comes across as really good value after placing to Dyna Double One (Replay), winding up second in the Ballarat Derby (Replay) and third in a Group 1 Australian Cup heat (Replay) in his last three race outings.
The lucky last will zip off at 10.54pm so good luck and happy punting!
