Sandown horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:55) Ladbrokes Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Yes Baby Yes – Bet Now
Team Corstens lines up the two-year-old filly that has the breeding to make an impression on debut.
The filly is bred by Dissident x. Exabelle, and she should be able to show something fresh up against a solid field.
We’d love to see a betting push come her way.
Race 2. (12:30) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM78 (1600m)
#6 – Duke of Plumpton – Bet Now
The former Kiwi showed them a clean pair of heels at Echuca last start and he has a nice future.
Now with Patrick Payne, the four-year-old scored by three lengths and was never tested last time out. He handles all track conditions and although facing a much harder field, he has some class about him.
Any rain on the day wouldn’t affect his chances.
Race 3. (13:05) MRC Foundation BM78 (1400m)
#3 – Lunakorn – Bet Now
Lunakorn has a bright future and that was evident when she won by a length at Bendigo last start. She picked the field up with ease in the straight and it was impressive to watch.
The three-year-old has now won three consecutive races and although she could have lined up in the Schweppes Oaks, connections are taking her quietly.
She should be beating this field.
Race 4. (13:45) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM78 (1200m)
#1 – Too Good Too Hard – Bet Now
She was too good for them when scoring at Caulfield last start. The four-year-old mare handled the wet conditions best and she might get the track to suit on Saturday.
Drawing barrier 12 isn’t ideal but she owns good tactical speed and she gets a claimer taking some weight off her back.
Expect a good run from the mare that has won four of her eight starts.
Race 5. (14:25) Honouring Victoria Police Handicap (2100m)
#3 – Kusari – Bet Now
Shooting for three consecutive wins in Kusari, which scored both wins at Cranbourne. The three-year-old is still improving and he owns good tactical speed, which helps.
Trained by Anthony Freedman, the son of Epaulette gets the services of Damien Oliver and he’s riding extremely well this season.
Race 6. (15:05) Ladbrokes Switch Handicap (2100m)
#6 – Sopressa – Bet Now
We’re sticking with Sopressa here after another tidy effort last start. The Maher/Eustace-trained mare finished fourth at Caulfield and she was only 1.6 lengths behind the winner.
She’s a winner of four starts but with eight placings to her record, she’s better than most give her credit for.
It’s about time she returned to winning form.
Race 7. (15:45) Salute Frontline Workers Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Open Minded – Bet Now
Open Minded is unbeaten after three runs and he’s being tested against a tough field. The Freedman-trained gelding won at Sandown last start and having that track experience is key.
The son of Jimmy Choux is bred to enjoy longer distances but he’s running well over the sprinting distances, so follow him in again.
Race 8. (16:25) Ladbrokes Odds Boost BM84 (1200m)
#5 – Mystery Love – Bet Now
Mystery Love is a promising mare that has a big win in store. The four-year-old owns four wins from six starts and she was powerful when winning at Caulfield.
She has produced only one bad run throughout her career where she had excuses. She’s consistent and easily good enough to account for this field.
Punters could get each-way odds if they’re lucky.
Race 9. (16:55) Ladbrokes Money Back Odds Handicap (1400m)
#13 – Buffalo River – Bet Now
Buffalo River scored like a good horse fresh up and she’s more than capable of winning again. The Moroney-trained import is unbeaten in Melbourne and he could make it four-from-four.
The son of Noble Mission is a group horse in the making and we’re expecting big bets to come his way from the inside barrier.
