Sandown free tips & form
Race 1. (11:45) Ladbrokes Park Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Can’t Be Done – Bet Now
Danny O’Brien lines up the two-year-old gelding which scored an easy 2.8-length win on debut at Sale before running well last start.
His most recent effort was a second placing at Caulfield and that should be a good form guide for the rest of this season.
Having experience running on a city track is ideal for this and he has drawn enough to figure in the finish.
Race 2. (12:20) Ladbrokes Cash In BM84 (1600m)
#7 – Global Sanction – Bet Now
Global Sanction is a smart type which is coming off a 1.3-length win on this track. That came over a benchmark 68 field and she does rise in grade, but she could offer some value.
That win would have strengthened her up nicely for this and with only 54kg on her back, she could provide punters with some value at odds.
Race 3. (12:55) Ladbrokes Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Jungle Edge – Bet Now
Jungle Edge is nearing retirement after a 15-win career, but he could have one more win to come.
He has been a terrific runner but he hasn’t shown his usual form over the last few starts. That being said, he’s the obvious class in this field and the soft track conditions are ideal.
He has yet to win on a good-rated track from 26 starts, so if the track conditions upgrade, put a line through his chances. However, if it stays wet, his chances increase significantly.
Race 4. (13:30) Ladbrokes Cash Out Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Marcel From Madrid – Bet Now
The form of Marcel From Madrid might not thrill punters but he’s better than advertised. The Paul Preusker-trained runner scored consecutive wins to open his career before taking on some good opposition.
His last five runs have come at either Moonee Valley, Flemington or Caulfield and they’re never easy races to win. He hasn’t been far behind the winners and they include Anjana, Native Soldier and Brutal.
That’s red-hot form for this and he might go under the radar.
Race 5. (14:05) Ladbrokes Info Hub Handicap (2100m)
#1 – Pacodali – Bet Now
Pacodali is coming off a tidy win at Caulfield and he looks to have the best form of any runner in this field.
The Maher/Eustace-trained six-year-old is a seven-time winner from 27 starts and he put them away nicely by two lengths.
That backed up some solid form at Flemington and given his big race experience, we’re expecting another big effort in this.
Race 6. (14:45) Ladbrokes $101 Odds Handicap (2100m)
#11 – Tysonic – Bet Now
Tysonic almost rewarded her loyal punters last start when running second behind Dogmatic and she could turn the tables with the swing in the weights.
The Waller-trained filly has won only two of her 11 starts but she has been threatening to win another race this season.
Bookmakers should have her at each-way odds, which should attract plenty of attention.
Race 7. (15:25) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM78 (1600m)
#13 – Heir To The Throne – Bet Now
Henry Dwyer lines up the four-year-old gelding which is coming off a tidy win at Sale. He scored by a narrow margin but he had been promising to do that for awhile.
Running in the wet conditions certainly helped his cause and if the track is rated in the soft or heavy range, expect his odds to shorten significantly.
Drawing wide hurts but he has finished in the money in nine of his 15 career starts and that’s good consistency.
Race 8. (16:05) Ladbrokes Back Yourself Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Odeon – Bet Now
Odeon has been promising to win a race and is knocking on the door following his second placing at Flemington last start.
The Ellerton/Zahra-trained five-year-old hasn’t won for a long time now but if he’s ever going to win again, it should come in this race.
He has drawn wide but he has good tactical speed and we’d be surprised if he wasn’t in the thick of the action.
Race 9. (16:36) Ladbrokes Multiverse Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Asgard Massif – Bet Now
Asgard Massif is heading in the right direction after posting three wins from his last five starts.
The growing three-year-old scored nicely by 1.3 lengths last start and he has winning experience at Sandown when scoring by two lengths.
That’s going to bode well for this and he should prove tough to beat once again.
