Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:20) Ladbrokes Switch Maiden (1600m)
#2 – Dragon Time @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dragon Time is nearing a win after consecutive placings and we’re sticking with the four-year-old until he wins.
The son of Hidden Dragon is a four-time placegetter from six starts, which includes a placing at Sandown last time out.
He was under a length from the winner and this field isn’t very deep.
Race 2. (15:55) Ive > Print Maiden (1300m)
#5 – Ord @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lindsay Park lines up the three-year-old gelding that has made a positive start to his career.
He owns two placings from as many starts and he ran on nicely to finish second at Geelong last time out.
Not much improvement is needed to handle this field and punters get each-way odds for the risk.
Race 3. (16:30) Clanbrooke Racing Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Vandoula Lass @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old filly makes her debut for Team Hawkes and she has been heavily backed to score.
She is a daughter of Vancouver that hasn’t had any public trials, but she opened at a short quote and solid money has come throughout the week.
With Craig Williams in the saddle, expect a nice effort on debut.
Race 4. (17:05) Thoroughbred Club BM64 (1000m)
#6 – Rutherford @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rutherford couldn’t have been more impressive winning fresh up at Geelong and he is good enough to go back-to-back.
The son of Foxwedge carried 62kg and picked up the field with ease in the straight, scoring by 2.5 lengths.
Off the inside draw, punters should be confident with the each-way odds available.
Race 5. (17:40) The Big Screen Company BM64 (1400m)
#1 – Chequerboard @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chequerboard has the class edge over this field and she should take open-class form and go close at this level.
The Lindsay Park-trained filly owns two wins from five starts and she drops from racing against open-class horses last start.
3kg comes off her back and she should be tough to beat.
Race 6. (18:15) Tile Importer BM64 (1300m)
#5 – Little Mermaid @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare won on debut and subsequently ran some quality races at Sandown and Bendigo.
She was only 2.3 lengths behind the talented Lunakorn in both starts and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely.
There is plenty of upside with Little Mermaid and getting 2kg off her back only helps.
Race 7. (18:45) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM64 (1800m)
#8 – Warrior Woman @ $11 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Warrior Woman owns two wins from her last four starts and punters get value odds for the four-year-old.
The Phillip Stokes-trained mare scored by a length at Mornington over 2050m in October, and although dropping in distance, it shouldn’t be an issue.
Getting double-figure odds is generous from bookmakers.
Race 8. (19:15) Ladbrokes BM70 (1400m)
#4 – King Magnus @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
King Magnus is gunning for his third consecutive win after recording victories at Pakenham and Sandown.
The son of Magnus won by over a length last start and having experience on this track is ideal. Conditions are different this time around as he has drawn barrier 15, but stick with him.
Punters get odds worth taking and he should be on your ticket.
