Sandown Park Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 6.34PM Warragul to Sandown 1-4 Wins Restricted Final – 515 metres
#7 Ha Ha Magoo – $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Explosive last start winning in 26.07 at Warragul in he heats for this race, was the fastest qualifier there from box eight and draws widest again here.
Hasn’t put it together at Sandown yet but should be a matter of time, shows savage acceleration off the mat and is powerful to the line.
Race 2. 6.54PM Launching Pad Consolation Series Heat 1 – 515 metres
#5 Thursday Knight – $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not the quickest early and was trapped wide the whole way from box eight in last weeks heats, had plenty of excuses with all the pace inside him.
If he can begin moderately here and get into a striking position will be air borne on the way home, a 29.55 best here from a middle draw.
Race 3. 7.13PM Launching Pad Consolation Series Heat 2 – 515 metres
#7 Lala Kiwi – $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Another who’s chances were undone early last week not able to show his customary pace from box six and never got a look in, doesn’t often miss the start twice expect him to be pressing for the lead early here.
Has great form behind Tiggerlong Tonk and beating Junk Food Junkie in the leadup, powerful type only needs room.
Race 4. 7.34PM Launching Pad Consolation Series Heat 4 – 515 metres
#9 Mepunga Reject – $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The reserve steps into the red here with the scratching in box one which has been a massive advantage over his short career a three-time winner at the metropolitans from the inside.
Won from this draw in 29.36 just two starts ago, looks to get an uncontested lead with no real pace around him.
Race 5. 7.55PM Launching Pad Semi-Final Heat 1 – 515 metres
#1 Suntory Rose – $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has the chance to be a dramatic improver here, stepped down from the middle-distance back to the sprint last start and was second early from box six before being cut out.
If he can leave mid-field and camp on the rail he’ll be the beneficiary of any trouble up front, should be storming home into the frame.
Race 6. 8.13PM Launching Pad Semi-Final Heat 2 – 515 metres
#4 Aston Rupee – $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stumbled coming off the mat last week and Kuro Kismet in box five was able to get to the lead and win the race in the fastest heat time.
Despite the tardy getaway still rallied strongly to finish fourth, should follow the speed in three out here and step on the gas in the middle section.
Race 7. 8.34PM Launching Pad Semi-Final Heat 3 – 515 metres
#4 Kuro Kismet – $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has gone to a new level since returning to Victoria, three from three at track and trip an outrageous 29.18 winner here last week from the middle of the line.
He was first out on that occasion and sailed away but has the strength to sit off the pace and finish over the top.
Race 8. 8.57PM Launching Pad Semi-Final Heat 4 – 515 metres
#4 Fernando Mick – $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Big-time heat winner last week first run here at Sandown Park was never headed from box seven on the way to a 29.3 one act affair.
Hasn’t finished out of the placings for a long time now and last weeks run showed he has both track sense and flat-out speed.
Race 9. 9.16PM RSN Sandown Cup May 27 – 715 metres
#3 Run Like Jess – $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pilbara had every chance to roll this front runner last week but the second elect couldn’t raise an effort, this dog has been over the seven hundred for some time now, always leads and is getting stronger.
Draws a nice inside box where he should pounce on the front, set up a big lead mid-race and be too far in front on the run home.
Race 10. 9.41PM TAB Long May We Play 3-6 Wins – 515 metres
#4 Omega Gringo – $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Last three runs here at Sandown Park has drawn box eight on each occasion managing two seconds and a third, hasn’t quite had the pace to break through for a win but is consistent as ever.
Should get the perfect trail on the three here and be in an ideal striking position to nab a much deserved win.
Race 11. 10.02PM Easter Gift Next Thursday Grade 5 – 515 metres
#2 Qwara Bale – $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looked her race last time out at the Meadows and she did what a good bitch does and went out and put her stamp on it from the start bolting in by four lengths in 29.92.
Showed excellent muster from this same draw on that occasion and in fifth grade company again gets her chance to run some time here at Sandown Park.
Race 12. 10.21PM Launching Pad Final Next Week Grade 5 – 515 metres
#3 Weeona Bulldozer – $12 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The veteran doesn’t get much respect in the market, has recently run just behind the winner in solid time here at Sandown Park and is a threat here from a low draw.
If he’s able to get to the fence the old boy still loves humming along on the bunny, over the odds.
