Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:20) Ladbrokes Maiden (1500m)
#5 – Doom Star – Bet Now
Doom Star showed nothing on debut when finished 10th at Sale, but he showed good improvement fresh up.
The three-year-old ran second on this track as a $20 chance when running 3.5 lengths behind Merited.
This isn’t a strong field and the son of Domesday could continue his progression and exit maiden grades with a solid win.
Race 2. (15:55) Ladbrokes Back Yourself Maiden (1300m)
#7 – Glorious Express – Bet Now
Pat Carey lines up the three-year-old gelding which ran well on debut at Mornington.
The son of Zoustar ran third behind Teebo and he made up good ground late after getting too far back in the run.
There was good betting support on that occasion, which is a good sign and we’re expecting another strong move this time around.
Getting the inside draw is only going to help his chances.
Race 3. (16:30) Odds Boost BM64 (1400m)
#1 – Merited – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly was a 3.5-length winner on debut and that form might be franked by Doom Star in the opening race.
He’s a son of Fastnet Rock which is bred to continue winning and we’re expecting good money to be put on throughout the week.
There was a real arrogance with the way he won on debut and there are no superstars in this race, so he could go back-to-back.
Race 4. (17:05) Clanbrooke Racing BM70 (2400m)
#4 – Bianco Nuovo – Bet Now
Bianco Nuovo was a good winner fresh up and although beaten since, he has been taking on stronger fields than this.
The five-year-old son of Artie Schiller is looking to bounce back after running sixth at Moonee Valley last start where he finished 15.2 lengths behind the winner.
Punters should look to his form which saw him winning on this track in August and subsequently placing at Flemington.
That form would see him winning this.
Race 5. (17:40) The Big Screen Company BM64 (1800m)
#6 – Miss Belisa – Bet Now
Miss Belisa is out of form, but she could get back to winning form at Sandown this Wednesday.
The Mark Webb-trained five-year-old mare was only a length behind the winner on this track last start.
Another performance similar would take her close here and her form is around some nice types. She ran behind Teleplay at Flemington two back on Melbourne Cup Day.
Looks a good chance to return to form.
Race 6. (18:15) Le Pine Funerals BM70 (1300m)
#1 – Muswellbrook – Bet Now
We stuck with Muswellbrook last start and he didn’t let us down when running third at Rosehill.
He was paying $30 to win on that occasion and facing an easier field could see him return to the winners’ enclosure.
Trained by Lindsay Park, the four-year-old was a winner fresh up and although he’s only a two-win type, he’s better than advertised.
Drawn to get a soft run and he gets some weight off the 62.5kg.
Race 7. (18:45) Blue Star Print BM64 (1000m)
#1 – Miss Street – Bet Now
Miss Street was good enough to win four consecutive races last campaign and looked good upon resuming last start.
The Jerome Hunter-trained five-year-old ran second at Moonee Valley behind All Cylinders and we’re expecting that form to hold up well.
She’s a class above most of these but has been given a weight of 64.5kg because of this. Tough to carry but it matters less over the shorter distances.
Race 8. (19:15) MR 6 Month Membership BM64 (1400m)
#8 – Ultra Smart – Bet Now
Ultra Smart is knocking on the door of her third career win and it could come here.
The Pat Carey-trained runner finished second at Sandown last start and that came behind a relatively smart New Zealand runner.
She isn’t the most consistent type but her performances this season have suggested that a win isn’t far away.
Gets a good chance at each-way odds.
