Midweek selections from the PlayUp form analyst.
Sandown R1 #4 Simeon $2.20 at PlayUp – Was very good on debut last start, sitting on speed and fighting gallantly through the line behind a very in form horse. That winner, Who Dares, has form last prep behind Bank Maur who know runs in a G1 Australian Cup. Second up now and steps straight to 1500m which looks a big positive, and he is drawn perfectly for an on speed run off barrier four.
Sandown R4 #9 Wango Award $5.00 at PlayUp – Fourth up, and has won two from three this prep and looks in a great vain of form. Was no match last start in a very competitive open handicap race at Flemington, but prior was winning in very similar benchmark races to this. She still ran the fastest last 200m sectional of the entire day at Flemington there, and a repeat of any run from this prep would be well good enough to win this.
Sandown R7 #6 White Bear $9.00 at PlayUp – Surprised about the price of this Moroney runner, who was a 7L debut winner at Wodonga last start. Not only was it visually impressive, but it was recorded in very strong time as well. He ran even time to the 600m pole, and them still managed the 7th best last 200m of the meeting while completely untouched through the line. Second up now with fitness and experience on his side, and gets out to 1400m which should only be a positive.
Randwick Kensington R4 #1 Headwall $2.60 at PlayUp – The fit horse on the scene, and is running in very good form this prep which includes a dominant last start win at Warwick Farm. Got through the line to win in the fastest time of the entire meeting inside the last furlong, and recorded sectionals that would easily stack up in very high benchmark grade. Perfectly drawn again here from barrier four, and has genuine further scope for improvement seeing he is only third up. Sticking to his pet distance, and has the race fitness over key rivals.
Randwick Kensington R8 #6 Highly Ambitious $9.50 at PlayUp – Second up here, and resumed very well at Canterbury last start finishing 2nd behind Zanzibar Gem. Got caught in an awkward spot in running, and only got clear inside the last 100m when flashing home through the line. It was a very good return whilst being unlucky, and now can be much handier from a low draw and gets a handy claim to boot. Finds a very winnable race, and stable is in form.
