Saturday’s $250,000 Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) runs over the mile at Sandown Hillside as Race 7 of 9 at 4:40pm (AEST) and features 15 three-year-old hopefuls.

McEvoy partners one of two in the line-up for Lindsay Park’s David Hayes & Tom Dabernig with Flying Light drawn in gate 10.

Over the past seven years McEvoy has partnered four Sandown Guineas winners with success aboard Caymans (2008), Kidnapped (2009), Tatra (2012) and Paximadia (2013) during his time as a stable rider for Darley Australia, Sheikh Mohammed’s racing powerhouse now operating in Australia under the Godolphin banner.

A winner of just one of his seven starts to date, McEvoy’s ride this year is Exceed And Excel gelding Flying Light who was last seen running sixth with Michael Walker aboard in Flemington’s Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) over the mile on Victoria Derby Day, October 31.

That was his second run over the distance he is over again this weekend having run third in a 1600m Listed Flemington feature during the winter when beaten only a quarter-length.

Before the Carbine, Flying Light ran fourth in the Listed Poseidon Stakes (1400m) in early October and third behind fellow Sandown Guineas hopeful Mahuta in the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) on Caulfield Cup Day.

Sandown Guineas betting markets at for this Saturday have McEvoy’s uncle, Adelaide horseman Tony McEvoy, with the best chance saddling-up smart young filly Don’t Doubt Mamma ($4.20).

She jumps from barrier five with Dwayne Dunn retaining the ride after riding the Not A Single Doubt filly to victory in the Listed Lexus Hybrid Stakes (1400m) on Melbourne Cup Day on November 3 by two lengths.

The next best in betting is the Darren Weir-trained Flying Spur colt Mahuta ($5.50) who has won his past three on the trot including the Carbine Club Stakes last time out and the other Hayes & Dabernig-trained hopeful He’s Our Rokkii who ran fourth in the same lead-up race.

Flying Light can be found further down the markets at $26 to win his first race this campaign and salute over further than 1106m for the first time.

If McEvoy can score the upset Sandown Guineas result he will become the first five-time winning hoop in the race, currently sitting equal best on four winning rides with Damien Oliver who is out of this season’s edition due to suspension.
