Despite racing for the first time over 595 metres, G3 Shootout placegetter McCooly’s Lad stands out in a Grade 5 race at Sandown Park tonight.
The exciting Compton Redeemer is eyeing his fifth straight win and sixth from eight starts.

TAB fixed odds at 9am: $2.70 Win

THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT
Thursday 9 December
$2.50 Win – JUNK FOOD JUNKIE
Sandown Park Race 3 Box 8 515m 7:43pm
TAB fixed odds: $4.40 Win
The Watchdog says : She meets a few good ones, but she showed a return to form when placed here last Thursday night behind Group 1 Adelaide Cup winner DO IT. She went through the first marker in a slick 5.04sec from box seven, so if she can reproduce something similar tonight, she will have enough pace to cross early on and she has proven to be a bold front runner in the past.
$6 Place – GINTOKI BALE
Sandown Park Race 7 Box 1 595m 9:10pm
TAB fixed odds: $2.60 Place (Top two finish required)
The Watchdog says : McCOOLY’S LAD (3) is obviously going to take a power of beating, however GINTOKI BALE (1) is an honest type and I think he can settle a little closer to the speed from the inside draw. He hasn’t experienced a lot of luck recently, but he has been hitting the line well and he will appreciate the rise in distance tonight.

Must Watch Race
Sandown Park Race 9
The Watchdog says : COMPTON REDEEMER (7) is having his first look at the track, but a clean getaway should see him get the cash. SHE’S SO KIND (6) looks the leader and is the obvious choice for second, however we have included strong types WIGRAM ROAD (2) and HIGH END (4).
‘Must Watch Race’ Preview :
COMPTON REDEEMER (7) has taken the provincial circuit by storm in recent weeks with two devastating sub 25-second wins around Ballarat. On both occasions, he speared to the lead and won with authority, however it was at his latest start at Shepparton where he showed his versatility. After bombing the start, he worked through the field and powered to the line when scoring in a solid 25.43sec. He rises in distance and makes his metro debut tonight, but he gives every indication the journey won’t be a problem and he has potential star written all over him.
The Watchdog’s selections: 7 – 6 – 4 – 2
