Trav Noonan’s Wednesday Racing June 16 Preview: Michelle Payne Back In Saddle On Top Runner At Sandown

June 16, 2021April 26th, 2022

 

We are back on the Lakeside track for Racing at Sandown on Wednesday.
Eight races are set to be run with the track a Soft 7 and the rail in true circuit.
The Hillside track played very much on pace and favouring those back to the inside on Saturday and I would think the Lakeside circuit will play much the same. 

 

 

Best Bet – Race 2 – 1 Douceur (2.80) (in below tweet)

 

Think she's a rising star this filly from the Patrick Payne yard.
She was awesome coming from well back to win on debut at Ballarat and her recent trial at Traralgon indicates she has comeback this preparation in good order as she looked terrific when winning her heat over 950m last week. 
She will settle off midfield here and that may see her drift in the market with the likelihood that this track will favour on speed types. 
Anything 3.00+ is a fair price as she is certainly the most talented filly in this race and she also gets Melbourne Cup champion winning jockey Michelle Payne (pictured at top) in the saddle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next Best – Race 8 – 6 Kuzco Lad (7.50) (in below tweet)

 

The lakeside track often favours leaders and given that I thought Kuzco Lad could be a great play in the last as he will be right on the speed.
Damien Oliver goes on and his recent trial at Cranbourne was good behind Cherry Tortoni.
In a race full of query runners feel at 7.50 he is more than a bankable price.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Value – Race 6 – 12 Lofty Heights (23.00)

 

Again a speed map inspired play here with this horse who will likely roll right forward with the lightweight thanks to Maddi Lloyd's 3kg claim.
His run first up was solid at a trip below his best and he will improve fitness wise for that now he's 2nd up.
In two starts on the Lakeside he has finished 1st and 3rd and he handles all track conditions.
Think at 23.00 he is way over the odds. 

 

 

Good luck punters!
