Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (11:50) Tile Importer Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Elliptical @ $3.60 – Bet @ PlayUp
Elliptical is on debut for Team Freedman and he has been well-backed throughout the week.
The two-year-old colt by Dundeel has looked good at the jumpouts and after opening at $4, his odds have firmed nicely.
Barrier two is another positive, so the future looks bright.
Race 2. (12:25) Ladbroke It BM70 (2400m)
#7 – Boyszee @ $6.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Boyszee owns two wins and four placings from eight starts and we’re liking the odds available.
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old didn’t fire at Warrnambool last time out but his win at Geelong is a good betting guide.
Something similar to that run would be enough to see him in the thick of the finish.
Race 3. (13:00) Ladbrokes Mates Mode BM70 (2100m)
#2 – Gate Crash @ $3.30 – Bet @ PlayUp
Gate Crash scored three wins from six starts and he has yet to finish outside the first three home.
The Patrick Payne-trained four-year-old won at Pakenham fresh up when carrying 61.5kg, so the big weight won’t be an issue.
Barrier 15 is the only negative but he goes on top.
Race 4. (13:35) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM64 (1200m)
#6 – Celsius Star @ $9.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Celsius Star capped off consecutive placings with a win at Pakenham and we think he can kick on with it.
The Phillip Stokes-trained colt showed a nice turn-of-foot to score and all three starts have come over this distance.
Watch for him to finish off stylishly late.
Race 5. (14:10) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM70 (1200m)
#2 – Blistering @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
Blistering is already a two-time winner this preparation and punters get each-way odds for her to win a third.
The John Pascoe-trained filly had been taking on tough opposition before winning at Sandown last time out, so she’s good enough for this grade.
Getting 2kg off her back is another reason to back her.
Race 6. (14:45) Thoroughbred Club BM70 (1600m)
#10 – Romany Rocks @ $6.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Symon Wilde lines up the three-year-old filly who looks fit and ready to fire after two runs this preparation.
The daughter of Astern finished only a length behind the winner at Sandown last start, and despite rising in class, she can handle it.
Craig Williams rides and punters get value odds.
Race 7. (15:20) Tobin Bros Celebrating BM70 (1600m)
#4 – Jack Of It @ $6.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Jack Of It hasn’t done much wrong throughout his career, which consists of three wins and two placings from six starts.
The son of Puissance De Lune owns two of those wins on good tracks and he did well to finish second on a heavy surface last start.
Drawing wide shouldn’t matter too much and he’s another value pick at Sandown.
Race 8. (15:55) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM70 (1300m)
#14 – Soarhi @ $4 – Bet @ PlayUp
Soarhi showed enough ability during his first preparation to warrant attention on Wednesday.
The three-year-old gelding faced some tough fields following his maiden win at Newcastle, including a placing at Moonee Valley.
He comes off a trial win at Rosehill and that holds him in good stead.
Race 9. (16:30) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM70 (1300m)
#12 – Quesadilla @ $8.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Quesadilla is never too far away from the prize with three wins and eight placings from 15 starts.
The five-year-old mare finished only 1.9 lengths behind the winner at Flemington last start and it’s tough to overlook that form.
2kg comes off his back and the odds are well worth snapping up.
