Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:55) Clanbrooke Racing Maiden Plate (1400m)
#4 – Tyrannto – Bet Now
The Colin Little-trained three-year-old has placed twice from three starts, including a third placing at Pakenham last start.
He made up solid ground in the straight and although he was beaten by 3.8 lengths, this race isn’t any stronger.
Punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 2. (15:30) Long Fine Maiden Plate (1300m)
#4 – Flying Award – Bet Now
Flying Award is a two-year-old colt which made up a stack of ground on debut. The son of Shamus Award settled near last and flew home to finish second behind Lunar Fox.
He should be able to settle closer to the pace off the inside barrier, and having Damien Oliver in the saddle is a bonus.
This race is there for the taking, so include in selections.
Race 3. (16:05) Ladbrokes BM78 (2400m)
#2 – Mistrust – Bet Now
Mistrust has yet to win this campaign but it’s only a matter of time. The five-year-old is coming off a tough performance for third at Launceston, and that form stacks up well.
He’s a four-time winner from 18 starts, and if he’s able to get some luck from the draw, he’ll be fighting out the finish.
It’s an even field, so punters should get value odds.
Race 4. (16:40) The Big Screen Company BM70 (1000m)
#5 – Maktabba – Bet Now
The Lindsay Park-trained filly is coming off a placing at Flemington, and that form is going to hold up nicely at this level.
She’s a daughter of Per Incanto, which is bred to handle all conditions. She has won two of her eight starts, including a seven-length romp at Ballarat.
It’s not an easy field to beat here, but she gets the inside draw and it’s another good ride for Damien Oliver.
Race 5. (17:15) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM64 (1000m)
#7 – Scipio – Bet Now
Scipio needs to work around barrier 15, but if he gets luck in running, he’ll prove hard to beat. The Danny O’Brien-trained gelding is coming off a third placing at Flemington last start.
Prior to that, he scored back-to-back wins at Cranbourne and Werribee. Those wins stack up nicely for this race and he’ll likely try cross the pack and lead.
Race 6. (17:50) Le Pine Funerals BM64 (1600m)
#9 – Playoffs – Bet Now
Playoffs didn’t show much at his first two starts, but he found form when winning at Terang last start. The son of Tavistock was heavily-backed, so he clearly showed good form in track work.
We’re expecting strong money to come for him again, and having John Allen in the saddle will help the young horse.
Race 7. (18:25) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM64 (1300m)
#8 – Hidden Legend – Bet Now
The three-year-old has upside after running third at Moonee Valley last start. He meets an easier field here and there are no last-start winners in this race.
He showed his class when winning on debut at Mornington. Although that win came at odds of $41, he has been backed to win twice since, and he could figure in the finish on Wednesday.
He just needs luck from the tricky barrier.
Race 8. (19:00) Thoroughbred Club BM70 (1400m)
#1 – Icon – Bet Now
Icon has to carry a big weight but he’s a form runner which could add to his already impressive record. The four-year-old owns four wins and six placings from 16 starts, which means that he’s going along nicely.
He scored consecutive wins at Morphettville and Colac earlier this season, before running second at Wangaratta last start.
They’ll do well to get past him and punters should get value odds.
