Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1500m)
#2 – West Wind – Bet Now
West Wind is nearing a winning performance following consecutive placings. The Maher/Eustace-trained mare is a three-time winner from seven starts, so she has quality.
Those wins came at her first three starts and although beaten since, she has been facing good fields. Her most recent run came at The Valley, so put on top here.
Race 2. (13:00) Ive Print BM70 (1000m)
#4 – Sapphire Crown – Bet Now
Sapphire Crown has won two of his three starts and he looks like a nice type in the making. Trained by Colin Little, the four-year-old won by a length at Sale and that form stacks up nicely.
Getting Craig Williams in the saddle is a bonus and the son of Hallowed Crown could score his third win from four starts.
Punters shouldn’t expect long odds on Wednesday.
Race 3. (13:35) MRC Membership BM70 (1000m)
#1 – Mr Cashman – Bet Now
Mr Cashman was a superb winner on debut at Moonee Valley before failing to make any impression at Flemington.
The three-year-old son of Epaulette scored by 1.8 lengths on debut and he defeated a quality field in the process.
His run at Flemington wasn’t good but this is a massive drop in class.
Race 4. (14:10) Tile Importer BM64 (1300m)
#2 – Shush – Bet Now
Shush is dropping in class after running in the city at her last two starts. She was good when running third at Caulfield in July and only fair last time out at Flemington.
However, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice should appreciate running against this level of opposition and we’re expecting a quick bounce-back in form.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and each-way odds could be available.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Multi Builder BM64 (1600m)
#5 – Just Jake – Bet Now
Form is with Just Jake, who owns three wins from four starts this preparation. The four-year-old gelding has turned consistent form into winning form and punters should continue to follow him.
The son of Reward for Effort won by 2.3 lengths at Bendigo last start and he wasn’t headed over the 1400m journey.
Rising to the mile shouldn’t hold any fears and he deserves respect.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM70 (2400m)
#7 – Austria – Bet Now
Austria finished third at Sandown last week but she didn’t get much go her way. She got too far back and it was tough to make ground from the back.
The former Chris Waller-trained six-year-old has only one win from 22 starts, but with 11 placings, she is worth sticking with.
The inside draw helps and Damien Oliver sticks with her.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM78 (1400m)
#5 – Howlowcanyougo – Bet Now
Patrick Payne lines up the five-year-old that is rarely too far away from the prize. The son of Fastnet Rock won at Sale two starts back and he wasn’t far behind them last start.
He is a two-time winner at this distance and a five-time winner overall. His record speaks for itself and he handles rain-affected tracks.
Weight comes off his back and drawing barrier two is ideal.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Cash In BM70 (1800m)
#7 – Blinder – Bet Now
Blinder is struggling to win races this year but he has the talent. The Busuttin/Young-trained son of Snitzel owns two wins and six placings, which is a solid record to date.
He has yet to win or place from three attempts at Sandown but this could be his time and punters are getting each-way odds.
Having a senior rider in the saddle is ideal and he represents value.
