Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Long Fine Plate (1000m)
#1 – Dark Horse – Bet Now
Dark Horse is on debut for Lindsay Park and he’s bred to show some early toe. The two-year-old is by Nicconi and there are things going in his favour here.
He draws the inside barrier, which is often key for a juvenile. He also gets the services of Luke Nolen and he’s good with young horses.
Watch the market in the opening race but Dark Horse should give a good sight.
Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes BM70 (1000m)
#8 – Write Enuff – Bet Now
Write Enuff is getting closer to posting her second career. She has rattled off four consecutive placings following a run at Caulfield last year.
The daughter of Written Tycoon finished close behind Pariano and Can’tforgetyou, which is excellent form for this race.
Drawing barrier five helps and she should prove tough to beat.
Race 3. (13:35) MRC Foundation BM70 (2400m)
#2 – Castel Sant’angelo – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained stayer is coming off consecutive placings and it can handle racing at this level.
A former Sydney-based gelding, the son of Pierro has the talent to win at this level and he just needs to showing it once again.
He shows good barrier speed and he should cross the field from barrier 14.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM70 (1500m)
#6 – Play Me Now – Bet Now
The four-year-old gelding is fresh up after winning at Moonee Valley over 2500m last December. It’s not easy dropping back in distance but he has won fresh up in the past.
It’s good to see Craig Williams in the saddle, so despite the unsuitable distance, he’s expected to run well.
Betting will indicate his chances but each-way odds should be available.
Race 5. (14:45) Salute Frontline Workers BM64 (1300m)
#9 – Teramia – Bet Now
Teramia couldn’t have been more impressive on debut when scoring at Geelong. The McEvoy-trained filly came from the back of the field to score by 2.3 lengths.
The daughter of Deep Field picked them up nicely in the straight and it bodes well for her future. It’s a harder task here but she could be a nice type in the making.
She’s another runner that could get out to value odds come race day.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM70 (1300m)
#3 – Hapaira – Bet Now
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old is coming off a tidy victory at Echuca and she could go back-to-back.
Her win came by 2.3 lengths and it followed up a handy third placing at Kyneton. If she continues with that form, she’s going to be tough to beat at Sandown.
Teo Nugent rides and he has been going well this season.
Race 7. (15:55) Clanbrooke Racing BM70 (1300m)
#18 – Lake’s Folly – Bet Now
Lake’s Folly will need luck from barrier 19 but he should drop back and storm home late. He did exactly that when winning at Sale last start and a repeat could be on the cards.
The 2.3-length win was dominant and he could have won five lengths if he wanted. He finally lived up to expectations and he could kick on with it now.
Look for late betting moves with Lake’s Folly.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1800m)
#15 – Curly Burgin – Bet Now
Three-year-old gelding Curly Burgin is coming off a solid run at Pakenham and although inexperienced, he has upside.
He’s a son of Lucas Cranach, so rising to the 1800m is ideal. He scored a win over 1300m to break maidens and that bodes well for this run.
Punters will get juicy odds and they’re worth taking.
