Midweek racing before this Saturday at headquarters will be taking place at the Sandown Hillside track. This will be a nice little earner to get the bank balance ready for Saturday.

SANDOWN HILLSIDE – AUS A

RACE 4 - KS ENVIRONMENTAL HANDICAP 1000m $35,000 (AUS)

SHADES OF BELLA resumes, she looked great in her first two wins then wasn't far off Anatina/ Gregers at Flemington, her jump outs have been sound. FLASH OF DOUBT hasn't won for a while but she has not been here, at her favourite track for a while either, 5 of her 6 wins have been here, at 1000m! Love the way she found the line last start against some handy males. BEACH FRONT beat Hotel Sierra fresh last prep with 60kg, she has trialled OK. LEGCUT loves it here, at 1000m too. HEADLESS is honest and back in trip here a plus for her.

SELECTIONS – SHADES OF BELLA / FLASH OF DOUBT / LEGCUT

RACE 5 - LISTER HANDICAP 1000m $35,000 (AUS)

ORUJO is a new season 3YO who has jumped out well against Yesterday's Songs and showed good ability as a 2YO, the form around Bring Me The Maid and Marcado (in high-rating races) says can measure up here today. HANDSOME TYCOON and TREVINDER, and SEVEN FALLS, come through the same race won by the well-backed O'Malley at Flemington, HANDSOME TYCOON was the best of them and is very genuine so may be the ''safest'' here. AWASITA resumes, liked his jump out too. GANGNAM STYLE looks promising, has to do it on better than heavy ground now is all

SELECTIONS – ORUJO / HANDSOME TYCOON / GANGNAM STYLE

RACE 6 - SPORTINGBET BEST TOTE PLUS 5% HANDICAP 2400m $35,000 (AUS)

CONTACT was having his first go 2400m when just no match for MUSEE MARKET, given he may well be better for that and has a 2kg swing now. No knock on MUSEE MARKET who is flying on wet tracks at this distance range. NORTHERN JOURNEY went back in trip onto dry ground in W'beal Cup so was a serious risk for mine, he easily beat Space prior who went to Sydney and won a Saturday race. OUTBACK RANGER and LA BELLE MOME have similar form lines. RAPETTE a hope, but trip some query.

SELECTIONS – MUSEE MARKET / CONTACT / OUTBACK RANGER
