Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Long Fine Maiden Plate (1300m)
#1 – Arctic Wolf – Bet Now
Mike Moroney lines up the three-year-old gelding that is coming off a second placing on this track. He ran well to place behind Chenier, which went on to contest Group 1 races.
He hasn’t run for over a year, so he’s had some issues, but betting will hold the key. If punters come for him late in the betting, it’s a very good sign.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Switch Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Whobethatnow – Bet Now
The Mark Kavanagh-trained colt is on debut and he’s bred to be handy. He’s a son of Pride of Dubai and these connections have already had success with Whobegotyou.
Having Damien Oliver in the saddle is a bonus and he has been riding in great form. He’s another runner where betting holds the key, so watch the markets closely.
We’re expecting bookmakers to have him safe.
Race 3. (13:35) Clanbrooke Racing BM70 (1000m)
#1 – St Edward’s Crown – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly showed her class when winning at Flemington last year and although only fair since, she has been facing tough opposition.
She had runs at Moonee Valley, Caulfield and Flemington, which all came at either listed or group grade. She ran last in a Group 1 last October and hasn’t been seen since.
However, that form stacks up well for midweek level.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM64 (1300m)
#9 – Hidden Legend – Bet Now
Hidden Legend is a three-year-old that has finished in the money in five of his six starts. The John Sadler-trained gelding has run second at his last two starts on this track and he could go one better.
The son of Pluck likes to settle close to the pace and that’s always a good asset to have at Sandown. Expect jockey Jamie Kah to have him on the speed and kick strongly once again.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Odds BM64 (1300m)
#9 – Zimowy – Bet Now
Zimowy didn’t fire last start but she’s inconsistent enough to warrant attention here. The four-year-old mare finished last at Cranbourne earlier this month, but being on the quick back-up could help.
She was only 2.2 lengths behind the winner in a close finish, so the run was better than it looked. Prior to that she won and placed at Pakenham, so consider here.
Punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM64 (1600m)
#5 – Glassey Miss – Bet Now
The Symon Wilde-trained filly made good ground on this track last start and that’s a good form guide leading into this race.
She broke maiden grades when winning on debut and she has faced two quality fields since. It’s slightly easier here and with Craig Williams in the saddle, she should go close.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Money Back Odds BM70 (1600m)
#5 – Muswellbrook – Bet Now
We’re patiently waiting for Muswellbrook to return to winning form and he has been producing good efforts this season.
The Lindsay Park-trained four-year-old has recorded three consecutive placings and his top-end ability is better than most in this field.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and Luke Nolen takes the ride.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes BM78 (1000m)
#2 – Spirit of Aquada – Bet Now
The five-year-old is taking his time to get back into a winning groove, but he’s talented at best and he could show that here.
He’s a son of Bel Esprit that is dropping back in grade after racing in listed company at Caulfield last time out. It came behind All Too Royal and that form stacks up nicely for this race.
Punters could get good odds and drawing the inside barrier should see him settle handy and kick strongly.
