Laing has nominated the three year old for the Group 2 $250,000 Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas (1600m) against his own age as well as entering him in the weight for age Group 2 $300,000 Zipping Classic (2400m).

So Si Bon is coming off a last start fourth to Prized Icon in the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on October 29 and Laing has reports that the So You Think colt has come through the run in great order.

But he will wait until acceptance time on Wednesday morning before making a final decision if So Si Bon will stay against his own age group in the Sandown Guineas or take on the old horses in the Zipping Classic.

“I just noticed Stevie Theodore’s horse a few years ago Count Ricardo – ran third in the Derby, and won the Classic with the pull in the weights, won pretty easily. He beat the imported gallopers,” Laing said, explaining his thought process for his colt.

“That’s the way I was thinking originally.

“Then, when there was only twelve in the Guineas, I threw in an entry. It doesn’t look like a great year.

“We’re just keeping our options open for another 24 hours.”

“He worked brilliantly and pulled up good. So he’s fit.

“All we did this morning was just run him up over 600 metres to clean his wind up.

“I’ll try and pick the race he has the best chance of winning.”

“I galloped him last Saturday and he worked terrific so I thought he might as well go to the races as stand in the paddock. He had a look at Sandown on Tuesday.”

So Si  Bon has been installed as the equal favourite at $4 with the Chris Waller trained Who Shot Thebarman for the Zipping Classic at Ladbrokes.com.au while in the Sandown Guineas he is on the third line of betting at $7.

The John O’Shea trained Morton’s Fork heads the market order for the Sandown Guineas at $3.20 just ahead of Darren Weir’s unbeaten filly Jennifer Lynn at $4.80.

Laing has also nominated Missrock, Wimborne and Stornaway for the Sandown Guineas while Tristram’s Sun is also entered for the Zipping Classic.

    I think that what you typed was actually very logical. However, consider this, what if you
    were to write a awesome headline? I am not saying your content is not solid,
    but what if you added a headline that makes people want more?

    I mean Robbie Laing undecided what race suits So Si Bon best –
    HorseRacing.com.au is kinda vanilla. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note how
    they write article titles to get viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested
    about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little
    bit more interesting.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website?

    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 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    got much clear idea about from this post.
