Race 5 – “The Sandgroper” Final – This main event will see a total of $8,575 in prize money on offer. West On Augie will be the short priced and clear favourite here, thanks to winning all of his last four starts, the last three of which have been by well over 6 lengths. He has continued improving in his wins and if he continues that trend here, he will score another comfortable race win. Poppy Monelli is a consistently top performer, having scored 11 feature finishes in his 15 race career. He’s run second best to the favourite here in his last run and if he can continue improving on his last run, will close the gap considerably. Black Bombshell has won 11 of his 24 career starts, including his last run. He’s well suited to the conditions here and wouldn’t surprise if he finished among the features. Lilly’s Spirit produced a much improved effort last start to pick up the 12th win of his career.
Betting: West On Augie $1.45; Poppy Monelli $5.00; Benny Monelli $10.00; Black Bombshell $14.00; Lilly’s Spirit $19.00; Patchy Kat $22.00; Lhotse Monelli $26.00; Zinnia Monelli $28.00.
