Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:55) Long Fine Maiden Plate (1300m)
#9 – Laybuy – Bet Now
Mike Moroney lines up the three-year-old gelding that has been around the mark in two runs to date.
He finished third on debut at Bendigo before battling on nicely for fourth last time out. Form behind Nerone has stacked up well since and it bodes well.
Punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 2. (13:30) Ladbrokes Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Masseuse – Bet Now
It’s only a matter of time before Masseuse wins after posting three placings to open her account.
The Maher/Eustace-trained filly has run behind the likes of Hard Rock Girl, River Night, and Swats That to date.
It’s form that stacks up nicely for this race and although she draws wide again, he has the class to overcome it.
Race 3. (14:05) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1200m)
#1 – Alburq – Bet Now
Alburq is the class runner of the field but he will have to carry 62kg. The Moroney-trained gelding scored a breakthrough win at Flemington three back and he has run well since.
He finished fourth behind Rubisaki and then fifth behind Super Seth. That’s Group 1 form and he’s facing a relatively inexperienced field.
His big weight could allow punters to get good odds.
Race 4. (14:40) Clanbrooke Racing BM70 (2100m)
#2 – Reflect the Stars – Bet Now
Reflect the Stars has finished in the money in eight of her 15 starts. She ran on stylishly for second at Sandown last start and it was a huge effort.
She settled last in a field of 16 and stormed home to run within a half-length of the winner. If she produces a similar effort, she will take some beating here.
Having Craig Williams in the saddle helps.
Race 5. (15:15) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM84 (2400m)
#3 – Budd Fox – Bet Now
Budd Fox scored a good win two back at Sandown before doubling down and winning at Bendigo.
The Henry Dwyer-trained four-year-old likes to settle on the speed and that’s a good quality for a stayer to have.
There are no standout runners in this field and Budd Fox could capitalise on that.
Race 6. (15:50) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM64 (1400m)
#8 – Iowa Hawkeye – Bet Now
Iowa Hawkeye usually finds form quickly and he could make a winning start to his campaign.
The four-year-old has figured in the finish in seven of his 11 starts, including a last-start win at Geelong.
Drawing barrier 13 makes it a little harder but we’re expecting a nice effort from the son of Lope de Vega.
Race 7. (16:30) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (1300m)
#5 – Excelida – Bet Now
Lindsay Park lines up the three-year-old filly that needed the fresh up run. She scored a win second-up last campaign, so that bodes well for this run.
The daughter of Exceed and Excel owns two wins from eight starts and she has been running against some stellar fields.
She has drawn barrier four and Damien Oliver is the man for the ride.
Race 8. (17:10) Ladbrokes Multi Builder BM70 (1200m)
#9 – Indernile – Bet Now
Indernile has produced two wins at Pakenham this preparation and he’s good enough to win at this level.
The five-year-old had been running against hard fields in the city before heading to Pakenham and having immediate success.
He could add some value to multiples in the last race.
