Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes BM64 (1000m)
#1 – Diesel ‘N’ Dust – Bet Now
Diesel ‘N’ Dust is coming off a second placing at Moonee Valley and that form will be tough to beat at this level.
The three-year-old ran only a half-length behind the winner and having Damien Oliver in the saddle is ideal for this run.
Expect there to be plenty of money come his way on race day.
Race 2. (13:00) Tile Importer BM70 (1000m)
#2 – Sham I Am – Bet Now
Danny O’Brien lines up the five-year-old which scored a quality win at Geelong two back. The son of Shamexpress won by a length before finishing fifth last time out.
He owns three wins and two placings from just seven starts, so his quality is shown in his record. We are expecting another top effort here and punters should get good value.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM70 (2400m)
#5 – Cracksman – Bet Now
Cracksman has been battling away nicely since winning at Morphettville and he deserves respect against this field.
The O’Brien-trained gelding has finished third in three subsequent runs and he has been beaten by less than a length at his last two.
Having Damian Lane return from Hong Kong to ride is ideal and he will be finishing off stylishly.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Go The Distance BM64 (1300m)
#8 – Magnolia Man – Bet Now
Magnolia Man is a former Kiwi runner that scored two wins and a placing from three starts.
Trained by the Busuttin/Young team, the four-year-old son of Reliable Man won by two lengths before finishing second at Trentham.
He has attracted the attention of Damien Oliver and that is a good betting lead.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Choice Is Easy BM78 (1400m)
#5 – Rich Hips – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare scored a brilliant win at Sandown two back and she backed that up with another terrific outing.
The Busuttin/Young-trained mare finished second at Caulfield behind Chassis and that form has stacked up nicely since.
It is another good ride for Oliver and we are expecting a top effort from Rich Hips.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1500m)
#11 – Blondeau – Bet Now
He took six runs to break maiden grades but Blondeau could make it back-to-back victories in Melbourne.
The three-year-old scored by a length at Geelong last start and his turn-of-foot in the straight was impressive.
He is trained by Chris Waller and he is a runner that could rise through the grades this season.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Cash In BM70 (1800m)
#5 – Jenkins – Bet Now
Jenkins turned around some average form to win by 2.8 lengths at Swan Hill last time out. It was a solid effort and one that could see him stay in form.
The Matt Cumani-trained son of Pierro sat off the pace and grinded home best. His record at Sandown isn’t the best but he now has confidence and that could show up.
Look for each-way odds from bookmakers.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM70 (1000m)
#6 – Zoujea – Bet Now
Zoujea hasn’t been in the best of form this campaign but she drops in grade after running at Caulfield last start.
The four-year-old by Zoustar was good enough to score back-to-back wins last preparation and she has needed time to mature since.
Damien Oliver could end his day on a high and she should be well-supported on race day.
