Sandown free tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbrokes Maiden (1400m)
#2 – Falls – Bet Now
Mick Kent lines up the three-year-old gelding which has placed in two runs to date. The son of Niagara ran second on debut at Pakenham before going close at Moe.
His last run came on a soft track and with conditions likely to be rain-affected on Wednesday, he should take benefit from that.
He’s drawn well in barrier three and in-form rider Damien Oliver is in the saddle.
Race 2. (13:00) My Punter Handicap (1400m)
#1 – It’sayesfromme – Bet Now
Two-year-old colt It’sayesfromme is bred to be handy and showed plenty of ability when winning at Donald last time out.
Trained by Anthony Freedman, the son of Dundeel ran on nicely on debut at Ballina and that form was always going to stack up nicely. He did well to win last start after sitting on the pace and he looks a nice type going forward.
Tough field but he could add some value.
Race 3. (13:35) Blue Star Print BM64 (1200m)
#10 – Too Good Too Hard – Bet Now
Phillip Stokes lines up the three-year-old filly which scored a terrific debut win at Sale.
The filly by All Too Hard won by two lengths and came with a big run late. That’s only going to help her chances as she starts to rise up in distance.
She gets some weight relief from apprentice Kayla Crowther and with a good ride, she should be right in the finish again.
Race 4. (14:10) Clanbrooke Racing BM78 (2400m)
#3 – Future Score – Bet Now
Form is tough to come by in this field but Future Score is inconsistent enough to warrant attention.
The Matt Cumani-trained stayer was average last start but looked good winning prior to that at Sandown by a half-length.
His most recent run came at Group 3 level, however, so this is a massive drop in class and he could return to winning form.
Race 5. (14:45) Le Pine Funerals BM70 (1200m)
#10 – Ocean Knight – Bet Now
Lindsay Park lines up the three-year-old colt which resumed with a second placing last start and he should build from that.
The son of Ocean Park hasn’t won since scoring a 2.8-length win at Caulfield in April last year but he has been taking on tough company since then.
This isn’t an easy race but he should give punters a good sight.
Race 6. (15:20) Big Screen Company BM70 (1300m)
#13 – Our Campana – Bet Now
Our Campana is coming off a solid run on this track and she could take good improvement from that.
The Colin Little-trained three-year-old was a back-to-back winner prior to that at Pakenham and Cranbourne. Those wins were good efforts and there’s no reason why she won’t run well here.
It’s good to see Craig Williams stick with her and that’s a good sign.
Race 7. (15:55) Spicer Thoroughbreds BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Saddle The Sun – Bet Now
Unbeaten after three runs, Saddle The Sun is one to follow from the midweek meeting at Sandown.
The Cumani-trained five-year-old hasn’t been seen since 2017 where he had won all three career starts in fine style. The long layoff isn’t ideal but he has been primed with two trials.
Betting should tell punters how forward the son of Helmut is but he will be an interesting runner regardless.
Gets the inside draw to help his chances.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM78 (2100m)
#1 – Bea Tempted – Bet Now
That was an impressive win last start at Sandown when she sprinted late to score by almost two lengths and it bodes well for this.
The Patrick Payne-trained four-year-old was disappointing at Warrnambool the start prior but she quickly turned that around and she could kick on with it now.
Drawing barrier 16 on a wet track isn’t the worst thing and she could fight out the finish.
