DON’T worry about the name, the only thing contagious about Viral today at Sandown Lakeside will be the banknotes in our wallets.
Herald Sun tipster Gilbert Gardiner has found a number of winning hopes set to contest an tricky eight-race card at Sandown Lakeside.
Our value bet Hernandez got up and paid $10 on Tuesday at Bendigo.
R5 No. 2 $4.20
Run of the race at the Valley last start when snagged back from barrier 11 and came with one big barnstorming run into second. Drawn out a shade but should be too good.
R8 No. 4 $3.40
Lloyd Williams-owned import won with some authority in Adelaide last start and from plum draw will go on with the job.

R1 No. 1 $4
Has improved with every run and looks ready to win now after being nabbed late last start. Small fields always tricky but race experience holds the colt in good stead.
DONE BY ME
R4 No. 1 $6
Savaged the line first up at Mornington and only just missed the placings. Has won second up previously and looks ready to go again.
JIMMY WITHA DASH
R3 No. 3 $10
Decent SA form but when astute trainer Will Clarken brings horses to Victoria they tend to find another gear, especially with Jamie Kah on top. Market support?
R2 No. 10 $41
"He's just kicking off, will need further."
R6 No. 5 $16
"Going really well, hopefully some of the sting stays out of the track, really likes the wet track and ticking over really well."
HEIR TO THE THRONE
R8 No. 9 $13
"No luck at Albury last time over a mile and racing like he wants further. He's in good order and ready to run well."
THE BLACK LEOPARD
R8 No. 7 $9.5
"He just had a tick over run at Sale last week, back up to a more suitable distance, any give in the track would be a real advantage."
Apprentice sweats on inquiry after self-isolation blunder
Apprentice rider Lachlan King is free to ride today at Sandown Lakeside after stewards last night adjourned an inquiry into a minor breach of industry guidelines.
King was unable to fulfil a ride in Race 4 at Bendigo on Tuesday after being stood down for accidentally sitting in the wrong jockeys’ rooms.
King left the racetrack shortly after, pending the stewards’ inquiry.
As one of the 25 hoops in Racing Victoria’s self-isolation program King must not mix with other jockeys as part of a concerted industry effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19.
Under the radical isolation model, the “Green Team” jockeys, who cannot ride in track work or barrier trials either, use a separate jockeys’ room on race days.
King had strictly abided by the self-isolation rules before yesterday’s misdemeanour.
His agent Morgan Betts said the apprentice sat in the wrong room “out of habit” after being weighed out.
King has rides in races 2 and 7 today at Lakeside.
