Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes Go The Distance Maiden (1400m)
#12 – Starelle – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly finished second on debut at Sandown and she could go one better this time around.
She settled near the back of the field before making a run in the straight. Her effort to run second behind Aidensfield was excellent and Damien Oliver sticks with her.
From barrier three, expect there to be plenty of money come her way.
Race 2. (13:00) MRC Membership BM64 (1400m)
#6 – Suroj – Bet Now
Lindsay Park lines up the three-year-old filly that is dropping back in grade having finished fourth at Flemington.
She set the pace over 1400m and wasn’t beaten far behind Lunar Fox. Prior to that she finished third behind Holyfield, which is excellent form.
The odds will reflect her chances but she should be firm with bookmakers.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbrokes Switch C1 Handicap (1300m)
#1 – Shotmaker – Bet Now
Shotmaker is seeking consecutive wins after scoring at Wodonga last time out. The 2.3-length win was a dominant display and he enjoyed facing easier opposition.
The four-year-old had been racing behind the likes of Alligator Blood, Super Seth, and Lyre. That form is red-hot for midweek racing and he should go close.
Laura Lafferty takes weight off his back and every little bit helps.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (2100m)
#2 – Lunar Flare – Bet Now
Lunar Flare scored back-to-back wins earlier this campaign and she only narrowly suffered defeat last time out.
The five-year-old by Fiorente finished a nose behind the winner at Cranbourne and she meets an even field here, so she could take advantage.
It is another good ride for Damien Oliver and he could get the job done.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM64 (2400m)
#2 – Cracksman – Bet Now
Cracksman was forced to make a mid-race move last week and that didn’t suit him. We are expecting a better effort this time around and he should go close.
The Danny O’Brien-trained son of Zoustar has finished in the money in all six starts this preparation and he should be right around the mark again.
Ben Melham takes over the riding now and a jockey change could help.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Choice Is Easy BM64 (1500m)
#7 – Carrie – Bet Now
Carrie made a good start to her Australian career with a win and a placing. The former Japanese filly showed nothing in Japan but won her Australian debut at Pakenham.
She followed that up with a second placing at Sale where she was only narrowly headed by Shockingly.
We are expecting that form to stack up nicely against this opposition and she provides Damien Oliver with another premium ride.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Cash In BM70 (1400m)
#7 – Imperial Lad – Bet Now
Imperial Lad turned his form around when scoring at Cranbourne last time out and he could remain in form.
The four-year-old by All Too Hard has finished in the money in 10 of his 15 starts and he gets a gun run from the draw.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and punters should get each-way odds.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes BM78 (1200m)
#10 – Sebrakate – Bet Now
Sebrakate will need luck from the wide barrier draw but the Lindsay Park-trained gelding owns ability.
The son of Sebring is coming off a run at Moonee Valley and dropping to midweek company at Sandown should be ideal.
Luke Nolen will need to work his magic from barrier 15 but Sebrakate has the ability to push forward or take a sit out the back.
Punters will get value odds and he is worth taking a risk on.
