Renew recorded his maiden race win in Australia when he took out the Sandown Cup last year and he has been an inconsistent performed in the 12 months since his narrow victory.

The Dansili gelding finished a close third in the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) at Morphettville on March 9 and he was sent to the spelling paddock after he beat home just a single runner in the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Royal Randwick on April 11.

Renew started his 2015 Spring Racing Carnival with a flat effort at Moonee Valley on September 5 and he beat home just a single runner in the Listed Harry White Classic (2400m) at Caulfield on September 26 before he produced a strong staying effort to finish fifth behind Let’s Make Adeal in the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2520m) at Flemington on October 4.

He produced another credible performance in the Group 3 Geelong Cup (2400m) on October 21, but he was never able to get into the race when 13th in the Bart Cummings Tribute Handicap (3200m) at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.

Trainer Archie Alexander said that he has been relatively happy with the form of Renew and he is hopeful that the step-up to 3200 metres for the 2015 Sandown Cup will help the grinding stayer settle slightly closer to the speed in the early stages of the race.

“The horse is in similar form and he is very well,” Alexander said.

“Just looking at the rough field it looks a strongest race than last year, but the horse is in good form and obviously he receives a lot of weight from them.

“He ran really well in The Bart Cummings to be fifth behind good horses like Our Ivanhowe and we were chuffed by that and he was ok in the Geelong Cup, but it was a disappointing run in the Melbourne Plate.

“He got back a bit far and as an older horse he needs to be switched on and in the hunt because when he gets too far back he tends to just give up.”

Renew is currently available at 2015 Sandown Cup odds of $19 with Ladbrokes, while Almoonqith ($4.80) is a narrow favourite from The Offer ($5.50), Grand Marshal ($7.50) and Maygrove ($7.50).

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that
    they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side
    effect , people could take a signal. Will probably
    be back to get more. Thanks

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I
    to find this matter to be really one thing that I feel I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me.
