Form expert The Watchdog is expecting rising star Rebellious to open his city account at Sandown Park on Thursday afternoon in the ‘Must Watch’ race of the day.
The latest star to emerge from the powerful Jason Thompson team, Rebellious (11 from 15 – 5 of past 7) created a huge impression in running near-records at a range of provincial venues before a narrow defeat at his ‘500’ debut at Sandown last Sunday.
Jason Thompson has another headline runner in the classy Immunity 17 from 25 – 4 from 8 Trk/Dst), which is engaged in a stellar clash against Jax Bale (7 wins Trk/Dst – 2 from 3 Box 1) and Keep It Black (10 from 32 – 4 from 5 Box 5).
Another emerging talent to keep an eye on is Sir Harley (3 from 8), which has caught the eye in runaway wins at his past 2 starts at Sale and Cranbourne.
Among the highlights at Warragul, well-bred Revolution (3 from 4) looks set to continue the bright start to his career.
Group 1 Silver Chief winner Lakeview Walter (9 from 19) will return to action, not having been in action since running 4th in the G1 Harrison-Dawson in May, in what shapes as a great tussle with Soda Prince (9 from 26 – 3 from 5 Box 4).
At Warrnambool, Rocket Boy (27 from 53 – 5 of past 7) should continue on his winning way, while local legend Norm McCullagh has a great chance in Angus Rhode (8 from 21) and King Of Glory (7 from 16 – 2 from 3 Trk/Dst) will do battle with Masked Avenger (13 from 28).

👀 MUST-WATCH RACE: Accell Therapy Grade 5 Final
REBELLIOUS 🆚 PEAKY PUB 🆚 YOHAN BALE 🆚 INVICTUS JAXSON
📍 Sandown Park 🏁 Race 9 📏 515m ⏱ 5:44pm
The Watchdog says 🎤: He was beaten in his metro debut on Sunday but REBELLIOUS (3) was far from disgraced when finishing a close second in his heat. He didn’t begin well and after working hard to get to the lead he never really looked balanced in the run. With the experience under his belt, he should be able to balance up soon after box rise and I expect him to look more comfortable in the run and with a clear passage a sub 29.20sec run could be on the cards. LUCKY LANCE (2) was the surprise packet in the heats, he had always shown enormous potential in Queensland and after two luckless runs in Victoria he was able to show punters his true talent with a dazzling 29.52sec heat win. If he can avoid bother in the first 50m, he should be able to settle in the top three and run a big race. INVICTUS JAXSON (8) was the giant killer when beating tonight’s top elect in his heat. He has a tremendous record here and had he drawn inside, he would be a major player. However from the wide draw he may be posted at the first bend and he faces an uphill battle from there. YOHAN BALE (6) was desperately unlucky in his heat and if the favourite happens to miss the kick, he could be there to capitalise. He is armed with blistering pace soon after box rise, and he appears to be getting stronger with every run. PEAKY PUB (4) rounds out the chances. He has been placed in all five runs here and is as honest as they come. He should get a nice cart across from REBELLIOUS (3) in the initial stages and he can sneak into the placings again.

The Watchdog says 🎤 : DARK ARROW (1) will appreciate the drop in class in race 3, but we have included on pace runners WEBLEC STORM (4) and VENUS LIGHT (8). RADEK BALE (1) is well under the odds in race 5, so we have taken him on and gone wide in that event. Very keen on CALL ME BUSTER (3) in race 6, but he can be hit or miss early, so we have taken a few extra runners as a saver. TRENDING ROOKIE (1) is drawn to show a return to form and looks the goods in race 10, however there are a few quick beginners and he will need some luck early, so we have taken a few other runners.

The Watchdog says 🎤 : High class event and I think these two runners represent great value. Both are very reliable beginners and have the speed to cross and lead. There could be four in line at the bend and one of our selections may be able to steal a break mid race and that may be enough to score.
