Sandown horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:00) Ladbrokes Handicap (1000m)
#5 – See You In Spring @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We love the name of this runner and it shows confident among connections. The two-year-old filly won on debut at Cranbourne and she showed good speed throughout.
She is a daughter of Siyouni that could have spring ambitions and if she wins on Saturday, she could rise through the grades.
It could pay to watch betting moves on race day.
Race 2. (12:35) Clanbrooke Racing BM78 (1000m)
#8 – Harlem Blues @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a win at Sandown is Harlem Blues, which could go back-to-back on this track.
The three-year-old son of Your Song is a three-time winner from 10 starts and drawing barrier two is ideal for this race.
Strong bets have come and they could continue to come throughout the week.
Race 3. (13:10) Ive Print BM84 (1300m)
#5 – Cordilla @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cordilla comes off a win at Caulfield and we like the way he ravished the line on that occasion.
The Danny O’Brien-trained four-year-old had been taking on tough opposition, so she enjoyed the drop in class. This race is no harder and she has a prime chance of going back-to-back.
The inside draw with a 2kg claim helps.
Race 4. (13:45) Ladbroke It BM84 (2400m)
#7 – Bondi Sands @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
European form bodes well and Bondi Sands showed that when scoring at Sandown last time out. It was a much-improved effort from his first outing and it bodes well.
He defeated subsequent winner Blue Ocean, so the form has stacked up and rising to 2400m is only going to help the son of Australia.
$5 is an excellent value price.
Race 5. (14:20) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Handicap (1400m)
#7 – Dice Roll @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dice Roll turned around some poor form in Hong Kong to win at Caulfield fresh up. It was a big effort and punters are confident of another winning performance.
The six-year-old now owns five wins from 19 starts and although disappointing in Hong Kong, it mattered not when winning last start.
Stick with him at 54kg.
Race 6. (15:00) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM78 (1300m)
#5 – Charleise @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained mare scored a quality win at Sandown last start and she likes the track.
She has yet to finish worse than third at Sandown and although drawing barrier 11 makes it tough, she gets the benefit of a 2kg claimer.
Her odds are shortening and a win wouldn’t surprise.
Race 7. (15:40) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (1300m)
#12 – Comica @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Comica scored by a length on debut at Pakenham and there was good betting support on that occasion.
Punters get better odds this time around and although she meets a much stronger field, she looks capable of rising through the grades.
Barrier six is ideal and she should get a nice trip behind the speed.
Race 8. (16:20) Ladbrokes Switch BM84 (1700m)
#6 – Fifth Position @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fifth Position is having his first start in Australia and kicking off at 1700m should suit the son of Dark Angel.
The five-year-old gelding finished 11th in a field of 27 at Newmarket last start and his recent trial placing at Cranbourne was a good sign.
He goes well early in his campaign and $5 is a fair price.
Race 9. (16:55) Ladbrokes Easy Form Handicap (1000m)
#8 – Vowmaster @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Vowmaster has been expensive for punters but we love the way he hit the line at Caulfield last start.
The Waller-trained son of Written Tycoon has been a touch unlucky not to win more races and this looks an ideal target.
55.5kg on the back is ideal and $4.60 is well worth taking.
