The feature at Sandown is the Grand National Hurdle and it is hard to go past SAUNTER BOY ($2.45 with Sportsbet). The Maher/Eustace galloper has been in red hot form. In his past four runs he has won two over the hurdles by a combined margin of 17 lengths, while he has finished in the money in two races on the flat, including a last start effort that saw him land a few lengths off The Good Fight in the Flemington Cup (2800m). He went six lengths faster than standard in that race and nearly 12 lengths faster in his other flat run. The eight-year-old has the stamina to run out a strong 4000m and his 10-length romp in the Australian Hurdle (3900m) at Sandown back in May is a great pointer to his chances. Steve Pateman has combined with the stable on 44 occasions for 20 wins, providing a 27% profit on investment for punters. He is three from four on Saunter Boy.

The final event of the day is a BenchMark 64 over the 1300m and SO FAR AWAY ($9 with ladbrokes) can bounce back after a tough run at Flemington a month ago. The Matt Laurie-trained galloper has had a month in between runs since stepping out in the Rivette Series Final (1400m) at headquarters and was posted out very wide without cover in that race before the tough run told and she faded into 10th behind Foxy Frida. The daughter of Snitzel won two on end prior to that, including one at Benchmark 70 level and she has been crunched in from $17 when markets opened to single figures. A Soft track should suit.
