Kensington Race 6

#3 Jacob's Time

Jacob’s Time is racing well without winning. The Trapeze Artist gelding will appreciate the drop in class, and I suspect he has the fitness edge over the majority of his rivals. The 1800m is advantageous, and there has been a good push for him in early betting. The allocated weight and his recent winning record are among the primary concerns.

Pure Hydrogen is over the odds. All runs this preparation have been ominous, and I suspect his next win is just around the corner. The Exosphere gelding looks well placed in this company, and I expect him to get a soft run in transit from the middle draw. He is a must for all broader multiples and exotics.

Condrieu is ready to peak. The Sebring mare savaged the line late at her latest outing, and she looks dangerous jumping from the perfect inside barrier. The current track conditions will suit the consistent six-year-old, and the step out in distance is ideal at this stage of her campaign.  

Suggested Bet: Jacob’s Time @ $4.50

Kensington RACE 8

#5 Bunker Hut

Bunker Hut is knocking on the door. All runs this preparation have been full of merit, and he finds his pet distance on Wednesday. The Savabeel gelding will occupy the box seat throughout, and if the gaps appear before the final furlong, I expect him to figure in the finish. He needs to put another win on the board! 

Naiconi was disappointing second-up from a spell. The Nicconi mare was flatter than a pancake, and it may pay dividends to forget she went around. The talented mare boasts solid form from Victoria, and her best performance here could see her fight out the final furlong. The current track conditions and awkward barrier draw are among the primary concerns. 

Silent Impact will have supporters after producing an eye-catching performance first-up at Rosehill. The Maurice gelding traditionally performs well second-up and looks ready for the longer trip. From barrier eleven, he will jump and pilot the field, and if he is able to avoid an early speed battle, he will look the winner on straightening. His fate may be decided during the first furlong. 

Suggested Bet: Bunker Hut @ $10.00

Sandown Hillside Race 5

#1 Neverstandingstill

Neverstandingstill can resume a winner. The Starcraft mare traditionally performs well first-up, and her record at the distance must be respected. She looks well placed in this company, and her double-figure quote has been nibbled at since markets opened. Barrier three should allow a soft run in transit, and if she sees oxygen before they run for the doctor, I expect her to make her presence felt in the shadows. Over the odds!

Little Miss Kubi is ready to peak third-up from a spell. Both runs this campaign have been good without winning, and I suspect the Headwater mare has been trained to the minute for this assignment. The addition of the inform hoop Blake Shinn could prove the winning difference, and there has been an avalanche of money for the talented four-year-old early doors. Her racing pattern and style will always require an element of good fortune.

Celestial Storm was a brilliant last-start winner at Caulfield. The Zoustar filly has been freshened since, and I suspect she will be ready for Wednesday’s event after an impressive barrier trial. The enigmatic three-year-old is a 1000m specialist, and she comes into all winning conversations with the 3kg apprentice claim. I would prefer to see her on top of the ground against easier opposition.

Suggested Bet: Neverstandingstill @ $15.00

Sandown Hillside Race 6

#1 Inundation

Inundation resumes after a lengthy layoff. The Headwater gelding is ultra-talented when sound and his career record prior to his holiday speaks volumes. From barrier eight, he will ping the lids, and if he is left to his own devices on top of the speed, the fat lady could be singing a long way from home. Let’s hope he can bounce back to his brilliant best! 

Scissor Step was a brilliant first-up winner at the track and distance. The Toronado gelding was on the wrong part of the Flemington track second-up, and he has trialed impressively at the nursery of champions since. The 3kg apprentice claim could prove a training masterstroke, and he looks perfectly drawn in barrier two. Hard to toss.

William Thomas turned back the clock first-up at headquarters. He looks well placed in this class and has drawn ideally in barrier one. The rising ten-year-old has been crunched in early betting, and despite not winning since the moon landing, I expect his quote to continue to shorten with the current track conditions.  Take on trust.

Suggested Bet: Inundation @ $3.50
