Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:45) Ladbrokes Switch Maiden (1400m)
#9 – Summaroca @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Busuttin/Young-trained gelding finished third on debut at Kyneton and the form out of that race looks strong.
He is only going to get better with time and despite drawing barrier 11, he should be able to get a drag into the race.
Money is coming for him throughout the week, so put him on top.
Race 2. (14:20) Ive Print C1 Handicap (1600m)
#7 – Meehni @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters get value odds with the McEvoy-trained mare, which is nearing a win after numerous recent placings.
The daughter of Sebring owns a win and five placings from eight starts, so she has only been out of the money in two starts.
Barrier six is ideal and she should figure in the finish.
Race 3. (14:55) Quayclean BM64 (1400m)
#4 – Better Kick @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Better Kick showed a better kick than the opposition when winning at Wangaratta last time out. He won by 2.8 lengths and he could kick on with it now.
The three-year-old son of Scissor Kick had promised to breakthrough and we believe he can reproduce his most recent effort.
Punters get odds worth taking, but they won’t last long.
Race 4. (15:30) Gerry Ryan 70th B’day BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Done By Me @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Phillip Stokes lines up the four-year-old mare that is due a winning turn. The daughter of Bon Hoffa ran fifth at Kyneton last start and with fitness on her side, she could strike.
She is a four-time winner and most of those wins came against tough fields. Therefore, she is good enough to put this field away.
With the 3kg claim, the $6 is a value price.
Race 5. (16:05) Clanbrooke Racing BM64 (2400m)
#15 – Mr Joobs @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
That was an impressive win from Mr Joobs last start and he looks to have enough ability to go back-to-back.
The Stokes-trained gelding stepped up over distance and put three lengths on the field. It was a stellar performance and the stayer will enjoy the 2400m.
$7 is great shopping and that price could firm on race day.
Race 6. (16:40) Tile Importer BM64 (1300m)
#3 – Paddy Mac @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Paddy Mac is a former Kiwi that showed his class when scoring consecutive wins last season.
The five-year-old won his maiden by 5.5 lengths at Terang before winning by 2.3 lengths at Geelong. He was beaten last start, but went down by only a nose.
With 3kg coming off his back, he should be tough to hold out.
Race 7. (17:15) Thoroughbred Club BM70 (1500m)
#6 – Caffrey @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Caffrey was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner at Flemington last start, which is good form for a midweek race.
The European-bred gelding scored a win at Sandown prior to that, so he likes this track and he has the fitness edge now.
Punters get value odds and he is worth sticking with.
Race 8. (17:50) Ladbrokes Back Yourself BM70 (1800m)
#16 – Tralee Rose @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking for three consecutive wins is Tralee Rose, which scored at Warrnambool by 4.5 lengths before winning at Flemington.
Her win at Flemington came against a quality field and she put a length on the field. It was a good outing and she is capable of winning again.
Money has come for her and we’re expecting solid race-day support.
