The countdown to the Sydney Spring Racing...
In-form filly Jennifer Lynn has drawn barrier four in the nine horse field of the Group 2 $250,000 Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas (1600m) at Sandown on Saturday.
The Darren Weir trained Jennifer Lynn is chasing her fourth win on the trot with Dean Yendall replacing Blake Shinn who was aboard the High Chaparral filly for her last two wins, a 1400m Caulfield three year old fillies Plate on October 30 and a the Listed $150,000 Lexus Hybrid Plate (1400m) at Flemington on November 1.
Yendall was in the saddle when Jennifer Lynn kicked off her winning run in a 1400m BenchMark 64 Handicap at Coleraine on September 25.
The John O’Shea trained Morton’s Fork is not far off a win and will get every chance from barrier five with Craig Williams in the saddle.
Williams was aboard Morton’s Fork last start when he went down narrowly to the Chris Waller trained Comin’ Through in the Group 3 $200,000 The Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on October 29.
Adelaide three year old Benz is coming off a last start fifth to Souchez in the Listed $150,000 Hilton Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on November 5 and has drawn barrier six in the Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas.
Dwayne Dunn was aboard in the Hilton Stakes and gets the ride again at Sandown.
Ruthven is undefeated from two race starts but the Ciaron Maher trained colt will find this a lot tougher than his last start win in a 1400m BenchMark 64 Handicap at Geelong on October 19.
Luke Nolen was aboard at Geelong and gets the nod again on Ruthven who will get the run of the race from barrier two.
Trainer Robbie Laing will saddle up two runners in the Sandown Guineas, Wimborne and Stornaway.
Kevin Forrester takes the ride on Wimborne who has drawn barrier three in the Sandown Guineas while Stornaway will jump from gate seven with Craig Newitt holding the reins.
Last start Pakenham maiden winner Soviet Secret with Chris Parnham to ride has drawn the rails, Hugh Bowman’s mount Fomo will jump from the outside of the nine horse field and Ben Melham takes the ride on Faraway Town who will jump from barrier eight.
