2 December: 4 Must Watch Midweek Horses!

Sandown Barriers
Tue 1st December 2020

Spring may be over but The Shark is just getting started on a long summer of smashing the bookies around!

He’s looking to get off to a hot start with midweek action at Sandown and Gosford on Wednesday, let’s take a look at a few to keep an eye on…


Race 2 – Audacious Heart – $11

Audacious Heart certainly ran into a smart one last start when run down by Maid Of Iron, but was brave and certainly did enough to the clock to warrant another look. At the double figure quote she looks overs here, and is well worth an each way play.

Verdict: Backing Audacious Heart at $11/$3.50.

Race 4 – Rutherford – $5.50

It was an arrogant first up win last outing at Geelong, and a similar level of performance here would see it go back-to-back without too much trouble. Has drawn well and looks a good bet at the price.

Verdict: Backing Rutherford at $5.50.

Race 8 – Kuzco Lad – $5

Kuzco Lad just went down in a photo by the smallest of margins by Unfair Dismissal last start at the 1500m. The drop in trip to 1400m should suit the Waterhouse & Bott runner, with a repeat of last start’s effort enough to get the job done here.

Verdict: Backing Kuzco Lad at $5.


Race 5 – Elegant Grace – $8.50

This looks a winnable first up race for Elegant Grace for the strong Kris Lees / Brenton Avdulla combination. She was racing in a higher grade than this last prep and accounting herself well, and looks a good each way chance at the quote on offer.

Verdict: Backing Elegant Grace at $8.50/$3.

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
