Following a win at Sale last start, She Wiggles was mid-field early, but produced a strong second half to pip Party Lights, trained by Robin Moore at Devon Meadows, at the post.

The first heat of Sale to Sandown series over 520m was won by Stuart Lee Rose, trained by Sharon-Lee Chignell at Rosedale, with Turbulence, trained by Chris Tilley at Sale, also progressing to Thursday night’s final at Sandown Park after finishing third.

The second heat was taken out by Aston Fraiche, trained by Tanya Sincock at Catani, ahead of Even Keats, trained by John Boreland at Giffard West, and Hustle Hard, trained by Brian Alford at Yarram, who also qualified for the final.
