Sandown Race 8: Jim Conway Handicap 1600m

27/05/2016: Longeron should be ready to show something at 3rd run back from a spell and has won and raced well at this stage of a preparation in the past. A dual winner this distance Longeron was beaten just over half a length last time out this distance at Caulfield and has drawn to advantage here. Looks a big threat. Guest Of Honour needs to break an 11 run losing sequence and last two runs this prep suggest he is getting closer. Beaten 1.6 lengths last time in a little bit stronger field when 5th to Charmed Harmony. Has won 3 times over the 1600m of this race. Kenjorwood makes his debut here for the Weir camp and most show marked improvement when doing similar. Has run some good races at Group level and despite coming off awkward break should run well. Petrology broke a long run of outs at Caulfield last time and has won twice from 5 runs over this distance. Hasn't put 2 wins together since his 3yo days and has to be taken on trust. Nozomi has had 2 runs back since a long 553 day injury enforced layoff and has been not too far off them in both runs. Was a Listed winner and Group 1 placed as a 3yo and looks to be slowly working back to form.
