Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:20) Ive Print Maiden (1400m)
#9 – Glint of Hope @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Glint of Hope rattled off four consecutive placings before finishing seventh at Flemington last preparation.
The three-year-old daughter of Deep Impact finished 1.8 lengths behind Daisies at Caulfield, so that form holds her in good stead.
She should have too much class for this field.
Race 2. (15:05) Ladbrokes Switch C1 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Tobaysure @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Phillip Stokes-trained son of Cable Bay is seeking consecutive wins after scoring at Pakenham.
He got the job done by six lengths, so it was a professional effort and his turn-of-foot should win him many more races.
Rising in class is never easy, but he could be a nice midweek type in the making.
Race 3. (15:40) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM78 (3000m)
#7 – Mr Blackwood @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Blackwood is a nice stayer in the making, and although beaten last start, Sandown should suit him better.
The four-year-old son of Tavistock looked good winning at Moe by 4.8 lengths before finishing third at Sandown behind a nice type.
Carrying 54.kg with Craig Williams on his back is ideal.
Race 4. (16:15) Ladbroke It BM64 (1300m)
#2 – Madame Du Gast @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Madame Du Gast looked good winning on debut at Flemington and we’re prepared to forgive her recent efforts.
The three-year-old filly ran eighth at Caulfield in a tough race before finishing third at Pakenham where she hit the line well enough.
That form stacks up nicely and with the 2kg claim, she should be right in the finish.
Race 5. (16:50) Stud and Stable Awards BM70 (1600m)
#10 – Inverell @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We think Inverell will shorten to around $1.90 following an impressive win at Sandown last time out.
The three-year-old is unbeaten in two starts with Jamie Kah riding and we think he can mature into a handy type at this level.
Barrier two is ideal and punters get fair odds.
Race 6. (17:25) Be a Mate Nominate BM64 (1000m)
#10 – Sparring @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sparring landed the knockout blow on debut and he has been thrown in the deep end here.
His win came only at Albury where he was the dominant $1.40 favourite. He scored by 6.5 lengths without being touched, so it was an impressive outing.
He looks good enough to handle the rise in class and having Brett Prebble in the saddle helps.
Race 7. (18:00) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM64 (1800m)
#13 – It’s True @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare hasn’t done much wrong this preparation and she deserves a breakthrough win.
She finished second by a nose at Sandown two starts back behind Honeycreeper, so that form checks out and she could go one better.
She lost no admirers when running fourth at Moonee Valley, so punters should take the value odds.
Race 8. (18:30) Tile Importer BM70 (1600m)
#13 – Rumbled Again @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rumbled Again comes off three consecutive wins and it’s tough to overlook that level of consistency.
She started her winning streak at Cranbourne and it continued at Moonee Valley last start, so she has been beating handy fields.
Punters get each-way odds and she’s our top pick.
Race 9. (19:00) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM78 (1400m)
#10 – The Garden @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Garden was the beaten favourite last start, but there is no disgrace in running third behind subsequent winner Rose Quartz.
He is a son of Shooting to Win who owns three wins and four placings, so he’s consistent and good enough to beat this field.
After opening at $2.80, his odds have firmed.
