There are some smart autumn carnival horses lining up this week and we have our best value bets.
Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:40) Ladbrokes Odds Boost Multi Handicap (1300m)
#3 – Forgot You @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Forgot You comes off a tough run at Flemington behind Lightsaber, but the form has stacked up nicely out of that contest.
Dropping to midweek level is ideal and we’re not surprised by the amount of money coming for the two-year-old colt.
His third placing on debut was much better and that’s the best form guide.
Race 2. (14:15) Ladbrokes Cash In BM64 (1300m)
#1 – South Parade @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
South Parade is gunning for three consecutive wins after winning at Bendigo and Sandown.
The three-year-old son of Sacred Falls scored by a length on this track last start and that’s a solid form guide for a similar contest.
Getting 3kg off his back helps, so put him on top.
Race 3. (14:50) Ive Print BM64 (1600m)
#5 – Steinem @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained filly comes off a debut win at Pakenham and she looked to be above average.
The well-bred daughter of Frankel drifted significantly in the betting but she proved too good for them, winning by just under a length.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal, but she has time to find cover over the mile.
Race 4. (15:30) Clanbrooke Racing BM70 (1600m)
#6 – Hamslette @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hamslette is a four-time winner that has yet to race at Sandown, but she is a two-time winner over this distance.
The five-year-old is rarely too far away from the prize and two of her wins have come this preparation, so punters should expect another big effort.
Each-way odds are available with bookmakers and she should run well.
Race 5. (16:10) The Big Screen Company BM64 (1400m)
#9 – Facemask @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Facemask has made a solid start to his career, which included a debut win at Pakenham.
The four-year-old gelding scored by 1.8 lengths before placing at Cranbourne and subsequently running fifth at Sandown.
He finished behind South Parade, so form from earlier in the day could stack up. $7.50 is worth the risk and he gets 2kg off his back.
Race 6. (16:50) Ladbroke It BM70 (2400m)
#3 – Sign Seal Deliver @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off an overdue win is Sign Seal Deliver, which now owns two wins and seven placings from 16 career starts.
The four-year-old son of Dundeel scored by a half-length last time out and with the fitness under his belt, he could go on with the job.
Barrier four is ideal and he should get a premium run throughout the race.
Race 7. (17:30) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM64 (1800m)
#4 – Flickitova @ $18 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Flickitova, which came over from New Zealand with solid form and he made an immediate impact at Pakenham.
The son of Raise The Flag scored a narrow win at double-figure odds and it was his first race in a year, so it was a classy display.
He could be worth following and the odds appeal.
Race 8. (18:00) Ladbrokes Blended Multi BM78 (1800m)
#4 – Pale King @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pale King has had three preparations and scored a win in each. The unbeaten four-year-old kept his perfect record intact last start at Sandown and he was strong to the line.
He is a son of Dabirsim that hasn’t been facing easy fields and he has come out ahead. The Hawkes-trained runner deserves to be well-backed on Wednesday.
Craig Williams rides and rising in distance holds no fears.
Race 9. (18:30) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM70 (1000m)
#14 – Pinkham @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly pulled up with a problem at Flemington last start and this is a serious drop in class.
She finished behind the likes of Marboosha in open company, so getting back to midweek company should see a turnaround in form.
Her third placing behind La Mexicana is a terrific form guide and the $4.40 won’t last long.
