Galah Leads 2011 Sandown Guineas Final Field

November 9th, 2011

The 2011 Sandown Guineas final field has been released with a capacity group of 16 horses to take to Sandown Racecourse this Saturday.

The Group 2 1600m feature event continues to grow in popularity every year and in 2011 it’s no different with a fantastic list of runners assembled.

The headline horse is the Peter Snowden trained Galah, the three year old having won all three starts this preparation as well as four from five overall.

He was the raging hot favourite last time out at Flemington and while he did win, it was by the barest of margins and only in the final stride.

With that in mind there’ll be plenty of rivals on Saturday thinking they’ve got what it takes to bring him down.

The likes of Mahisara, Amah Rock, Instinction and Niagara all have genuine claims.

There’s also the other Snowden runner Mental which ran on extremely well for fourth last time out.

Could it be a Snowden quinella or will another trainer get the job done in the 2011 Sandown Guineas?
