Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:40) Ladbrokes 0MW (1300m)
#1 – Itzhot @ $7.50 – Bet Now
Punters are getting good odds for the Lindsay Park-trained runner which has faced stiff opposition to date.
The son of Snitzel ran sixth behind Ideas Man on debut before struggling to make at ground in a tough race at Rosehill.
He has since been primed with a trial placing at Geelong and he could exceed expectations in the opening race.
Race 2. (16:15) Clanbrooke Racing Maiden Plate (1300m)
#6 – Karbors @ $3.20 – Bet Now
The James Cummings-trained gelding has run third in both career starts and he could get over the line first here.
He ran third in a small field on debut before making up good ground from last at Sandown on January 27.
A repeat of that run would take him close and having the experienced Brad Rawiller in the saddle only helps his chances.
Race 3. (16:50) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM64 (2400m)
#4 – The Hun @ $6.50 – Bet Now
The Hun hasn’t quite lived up to expectations this campaign but he could get back to winning form now.
He finished seventh at Murray Bridge last start but that came in a rating 78 race, so he’ll find this easier.
Luke Currie takes the ride from barrier two and he should be able to settle closer to the pace from there.
Chance and punters are getting value odds.
Race 4. (17:25) Le Pine Funerals BM64 (1600m)
#8 – Anything But @ $6.50 – Bet Now
The Moroney stable continued its dominance this season with a Group 1 win on Saturday. That run could continue with Anything But on Wednesday.
The four-year-old by Savabeel ran on stoutly to run third at Sandown last start and that form looks good for this race.
He hasn’t won since February last year, which was a win at Pukekohe in New Zealand. His form since has been good enough to take this out.
Race 5. (18:00) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM64 (1300m)
#6 – Scottish Dreamer @ $2.45 – Bet Now
Scottish Dreamer struggled at Flemington last start but he’s dropping from open class to BM64 grade here.
The three-year-old looked much better prior to that when scoring by 1.8 lengths at Benella. It was a tidy win and the form out of that race has stacked up well.
It’s good to see Damien Oliver take over the riding duties and he only needs some luck from the awkward barrier to go close.
Race 6. (18:30) MRC 6 Month Membership BM64 (1400m)
#2 – Ellis Park @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Ellis Park made a big impression when scoring by 1.3 lengths at Sandown on debut.
The Mark Kavanagh-trained gelding sat on the speed and kicked strongly in the straight. He defeated a handy maiden field and he could easily kick on with it now.
Craig Williams sticks with him and we’re surprised at the each-way odds on offer. We expected something around $3.
Race 7. (19:00) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (1400m)
#14 – Maozi @ $5 – Bet Now
Peter and Paul Snowden lines up the filly that has shown good ability to date and should run well here.
The daughter of Helmut has won twice and placed four times from only 11 starts. It’s a good record and she’s better than her form line suggests.
Drawing barrier 10 is a slight negative but she has time to find cover and be right in the finish.
Race 8. (19:30) Thoroughbred Club BM78 (1400m)
#8 – Big Parade @ $3 – Bet Now
Big Parade has gone to Melbourne in search of better track conditions. He has been slammed with barrier 16, which won’t help, but he owns more ability than most in this race.
The Clare Cunningham-trained colt finished second at Rosehill last start and that came behind a smart field.
He should be able to win this race with a fraction of luck.
