Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ladbroke It Maiden (1000m)
#3 – Russian Mint @ $3 – Bet @ PlayUp
Russian Mint hasn’t been seen at the trials but his form at the jumpouts has been solid.
The son of Russian Revolution opened at $3.10 and he has been specked into a shorter quote, so we expect more money to come on race day.
Jumping from barrier two is ideal and he could make a winning debut.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (2400m)
#2 – Irish Butterfly @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp
Irish Butterfly hasn’t won in some time but the six-year-old gelding runs some of his best races at Sandown.
The son of O’Reilly owns a win and three placings from seven starts on the track and he could add another to his record.
Getting 2kg off his back helps and punters should be confident.
Race 3. (13:35) Thoroughbred Club BM64 (1300m)
#8 – Miss Middle Park @ $6.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Miss Middle Park has shown enough talent to be put on top in this race, including a win at Cranbourne to break maidens.
The three-year-old filly has finished out of the money only once from six starts and she was good to the line at Pakenham last time out.
Jamie Kah rides and we’re happy to take the $6.50 available.
Race 4. (14:10) The Big Screen Company BM64 (1000m)
#9 – Burum @ $4.60 – Bet @ PlayUp
Burum will need luck from the wide draw but the three-year-old filly looked good winning on debut at Mornington.
The daughter of Artie Schiller scored by 1.8 lengths as a $5.50 chance and she is easily good enough to repeat the dose.
Luck is needed but she’s worth including at the price.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM70 (1000m)
#5 – Stay in Touch @ $3.90 – Bet @ PlayUp
Stay in Touch owns four wins and a placing from five starts, so punters have cashed in with the four-year-old.
She comes off a win at Bendigo in heavy conditions and she has form on drier tracks, which is an excellent form guide.
The 2kg claim helps and we’re surprised by the odds, despite rising in class.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Mates Mode BM64 (1800m)
#12 – Miss Keeler @ $14 – Bet @ PlayUp
Coming off a win at Pakenham is Miss Keeler, who looks good enough to handle this field at generous odds.
The four-year-old mare showed a fine turn-of-foot to score by over a length and she’s good enough to repeat the dose.
It’s another value runner for Kah and she could treat punters well.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (1800m)
#1 – Excelleration @ $3.60 – Bet @ PlayUp
Richard Cully lines up the five-year-old who looked good winning at Kerang and this race shouldn’t be any harder.
The son of Excelebration owns three second placings from four starts at Sandown and he deserves a win on the track.
The distance is ideal and his current odds are likely to firm on race day.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Visinari @ $1.90 – Bet @ PlayUp
Visinari was scratched last week when heavily backed and punters have come for him again.
The five-year-old gelding couldn’t have been more impressive when winning at Pakenham by 7.5 lengths, which is an excellent form guide.
Jamie Kah could end her day on a high and she’s worth backing at the short quote.
