Sandown Race 8: Sensational Springvale Handicap 1300m

04/12/2015: To be beaten by Weinholt, who has form around Malaguerra and Good Project, at Ballarat Isuzu Handicap (after 28 days break) was a very good run for Gallant Harmony. He also has form around Trevinder and Written Up (both recent Moonee Valley winners) and with the 3kg claim and good run just off the pace it all looks like a strong effort coming up. Galaxy Pegasus is now back in his correct class after a slight check off heels when $41 in the Kevin Heffernan Stakes and with the 3kg claim looks a top chance. Mr Backchat is a genuine racehorse who has a real go at winning so expect a terrific effort especially with the 2kg claim and a good barrier just off the pace. Swift Shadow needed the first up run (zero wins from six starts) and was knocked about and held up last start when beaten 2.3 lengths to Mr Backchat. Five runs ago he was just beaten by Gracious Prospect who ran a ripper third to Famous Seamus last start. He has a couple of excuse runs since which "forced" me to take the $23 available as I think he should be closer to $11. Kirani has form around Burning Front, who showed how tough he was last Sunday at Pakenham, when beating that horse by 2.25 lengths at Terang. His Kilmore win was strong and he will be in the finish of this race.

PACE COMMENTS With three likely leaders (Le Remas, Kiranai and Sneaky Squirrel) and three on pacers lurking, as per their usual race pattern, has me believing the pace will be good enough for the mid fielders but I would be worried about the get back types.
