Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi Handicap (1300m)
#3 – Saint Tropez @ $20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lloyd Kennewell-trained two-year-old comes off a win at Echuca and he could handle the rise in class.
He scored by a length on the heavy track and he showed a fine turn-of-foot, which is always a clear indication of ability.
It could pay to watch betting markets for any positive moves.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM70 (2400m)
#5 – Carrie @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Carrie can be a tough horse to follow, but the imported mare by Manhattan Café is talented when right.
The five-year-old owns four wins and three placings from 15 starts, including one placing at Sandown. She won two starts back at Cranbourne and she wasn’t far behind at Sandown last start.
She finished fourth behind Nerve Not Verve and getting 2kg off her back for this run could make all the difference.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM64 (1400m)
#2 – Capri Lane @ $20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old has yet to race in Victoria, but he looks well-placed against this company.
He comes off a win at Hawkesbury and he has since won a barrier trial at Warwick Farm against a handy field, so his form stands out.
Getting a 3kg claim offsets the wide barrier draw and punters should get juicy odds on race day.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes BM64 (1600m)
#5 – Raccolto @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Raccolto is another Sydney-based runner that comes off a win at Newcastle. The Hawkes-trained filly won by two lengths in a dominant display, which bodes well.
She is a daughter of Pierro that showed a fine turn-of-foot and she handles rain-affected tracks, so the early signs are good.
We’re expecting plenty of betting support to come her way first-up in Victoria.
Race 5. (14:45) MRC Membership Renewal BM78 (1600m)
#6 – Petruchio @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Archie Alexander-trained six-year-old finished fourth at Caulfield last time out and he should find this field more to his liking.
He looked better when running third fresh up at Flemington behind Mr Tipla and anything close to that form would see him winning this midweek race.
Two of his three career wins have come at 1600m, so put him on top.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Switch BM64 (1600m)
#13 – Toomuchtobear @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Bendigo is Toomuchtobear, which defeated subsequent maiden winner Mr Brightside by a narrow margin.
The Chris Waller-trained son of Press Statement progressed nicely after placing in his first three starts, so the early signs are positive.
Barrier two and Craig Williams riding is a positive, so expect another tidy effort.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM64 (1200m)
#8 – Helavabel @ $9 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value should be with the Greg Eurell-trained Helavabel, which owns two wins and three placings from just nine career starts.
The four-year-old son of Bel Esprit comes off a third placing at Cranbourne fresh up and he will be fitter for the run.
He has yet to fire in three attempts at Sandown, but now is a good time to turn those stats around.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Cash In BM70 (2100m)
#7 – Perennial @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Perennial is getting awfully close to posting another win and it could be worth sticking with the four-year-old mare.
Trained by Peter Moody, the daughter of Per Incanto comes off a second placing behind Nerve Not Verve and she is good enough to turn the tables.
She has placed in all three runs at Sandown and we’re confident of another tidy effort.
