Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) Ladbroke It Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Beagle @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beagle ran second on debut at Mornington and we expect that form to stack up nicely for this level of racing.
The three-year-old son of Pride of Dubai wasn’t asked for much in a recent trial at Cranbourne, so punters shouldn’t be deterred by that performance.
Barrier 12 is a worry, but experienced jockey Luke Currie takes the ride.
Race 2. (13:35) Ladbrokes Easy Form Maiden (1400m)
#13 – Wonderful Thoughts @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team Hawkes lines up the three-year-old filly that looked good when running third on debut, so we expect that form to hold up.
The daughter of I Am Invincible was only a length behind the winner and that came in a much harder race at Moonee Valley.
$2.30 is a fair price for a runner with plenty of upside.
Race 3. (14:10) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi C1 (1400m)
#6 – Palumbo @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Palumbo, who is getting warmer after two starts this preparation. The five-year-old mare ran seventh fresh up but improved to run fourth at Sandown last start.
Having the fitness edge helps and punters get value odds for the Graeme Begg-trained runner, who gets a good run from barrier three.
We expect her odds to stay around $7.50 on race day.
Race 4. (14:45) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM70 (2400m)
#5 – Bainbridge @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bainbridge has been running consistently this campaign, which includes two wins and three minor placings from five starts.
The Liam Howley-trained six-year-old tried to lead throughout at Swan Hill last start, but leaders have a good record at Sandown, so that helps.
The in-form Brett Prebble rides, so stick with him.
Race 5. (15:20) MRC Membership Guarantee BM70 (1600m)
#12 – Quintello @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to win three consecutive races is Quintello, who should firm into much shorter odds come race day.
The Maher/Eustace-trained mare scored her maiden at Warracknabeal before beating a talented field at Sandown by 2.5 lengths last start.
That is a highly graded race, so we’re loving the odds for Quintello. Put her on top and she’s good enough to rise through the grades.
Race 6. (15:55) Ive Print BM78 (1600m)
#9 – Ayahuasca @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re looking at the win two back at Sandown as the best betting guide. The four-year-old mare won by 3.5 lengths, and although beaten last start, that came behind Mr Brightside.
Rising in grade could make it tough here, but she’s a progressive type that carries only 54.5kg with Dean Yendall in the saddle.
$4.50 is worth the risk in an open contest.
Race 7. (16:30) Ladbrokes BM70 (1200m)
#10 – Narvaez @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old son of Vancouver is a noted fresh up performer and he’s also unbeaten at his only attempt at Sandown.
He scored in December before heading to the city and struggling. He ran ninth at Flemington and last at Caulfield, but he meets easier opposition this time around.
His most recent run at Moonee Valley was encouraging and having Craig Williams in the saddle doesn’t do him any harm.
Race 8. (17:05) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM70 (1400m)
#2 – He’s the Real Deel @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
He’s the Real Deel is shooting for three wins on the bounce and he’s more than capable of handling this field.
The five-year-old won at Sandown Lakeside fresh up and followed it with a win at Hillside by five lengths. It was an emphatic victory that bodes well for this race.
3kg comes off his back and punters have already climbed into his opening odds.
