Morton’s Fork has raced well without a great deal of luck during his 2016 Spring Racing Carnival campaign and he is set to start the Sandown Guineas as a clear favourite.

The Ad Valorem colt returned to the races with a win at Rosehill Gardens on September 28 and he was blocked for a run in the Listed Gothic Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on October 15 before he finished a close second behind Comin’ Through in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on October 29.

The main danger to Morton’s Fork in the early 2016 Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas betting market with Ladbrokes is Darren Weir-trained Jennifer Lynn.

Jennifer Lynn has improved each time that she has been seen at the races this preparation and she goes into the Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas on the back of an impressive victory in the Listed Lexus Hybrid Plate (1400m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.

Another horse that is set to take winning form into the 2016 Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas is the unbeaten colt Ruthven.

Ruthven made his racing debut with a win at Bendigo on September 29 and he made it two wins from as many starts with his strong effort at Geelong on October 19.

The 2016 Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas field is rounded out by Benz, Wimborne, Fomo, Stornaway, Faraway Town and Soviet Secret.
