Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes Same Game Multi Handicap (1300m)
#1 – McCain – Bet Now
McCain is coming off a win at Echuca and that form should stack up nicely at Sandown.
Trained by Patrick Payne, the two-year-old scored by a half-length last time out and it showed he can handle wet tracks.
Conditions won’t be too dissimilar on Wednesday and Jye McNeil is riding well this season.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Back Yourself Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Aquagirl – Bet Now
Aquagirl showed mixed form during his first preparation but she didn’t face easier fields. She ran third on debut at Moonee Valley before winning at Flemington.
The win at Flemington is the best form pointer for this race and despite failing in open company last start, she will be better for the experience.
Expect a tough effort off the inside draw.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1000m)
#7 – Beauty Betty – Bet Now
Beauty Betty has yet to finish worse than third from four starts and she is getting close to another win.
The Corstens-trained three-year-old won at Ballarat two back and followed that up with a second placing at Wangaratta.
Drawing barrier 12 could make it tricky over 1000m but she is worth backing on Wednesday.
Race 4. (14:10) John Gourley BM64 (1300m)
#9 – Wairere Falls – Bet Now
Wairere Falls could be a nice type in the making following an impressive win at Geelong.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old settled back throughout the run before flashing home late to score by a nose.
Rising back up to 1300m is ideal and despite facing tough opposition here, the son of Savabeel looks good enough to win again.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM70 (2400m)
#1 – Shepard – Bet Now
We are sticking with Shepard despite a couple of inconsistent efforts. The Peter Moody-trained gelding ran 10th at Flemington before improving to run fifth at Sandown.
His form prior was quality, which included four wins and three of those came consecutively. He won his only start over this distance and it bodes well for a good run.
Campbell Rawiller takes much-needed weight off his back.
Race 6. (15:20) Jeffery Armstrong BM84 (1800m)
#4 – Heavenly Emperor – Bet Now
Looking to go back-to-back is Heavenly Emperor, which scored a quality win at Caulfield last month.
The four-year-old gelding is a five-time winner from only 16 starts and beating runners like Thought of That is terrific form.
It is group racing form and he is going to be tough to beat at midweek level.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Cash In BM78 (1600m)
#1 – Arctic Shock – Bet Now
Arctic Shock hasn’t won this campaign but she is getting close and her form lines are solid for this run.
The four-year-old daughter of Shocking ran fourth on this track last start and her form prior came behind some smart Saturday-grade types.
Having Craig Williams in the saddle is ideal and despite the big weight, she should make her presence known.
Race 8. (16:30) Vale Scales of Justice BM78 (1000m)
#1 – Kalashani Lad – Bet Now
The nine-year-old isn’t getting any younger but he is coming off a win on this track. He scored by just under a length earlier this month and he is worth sticking with.
It was his third win at Sandown and despite getting on in his career, he deserves another chance at this level.
Carrying a big weight could stop him but it’s less likely to be detrimental to his chances over 1000m.
