Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) Ladbrokes Cash In Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Semper Fortis @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Semper Fortis is looking to go one better this time around after finishing second at his first two career starts.
The three-year-old son of Tavistock was only a nose behind winner Aeecee Dame, and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely on Wednesday.
$3.50 is a fair price given the strength of this field.
Race 2. (13:30) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1600m)
#2– Barb Raider @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Barb Raider has been knocking on the door and she is good enough to beat this quality field.
The Jerome Hunter-trained filly finished third on debut behind Mynumerouno, which has since won at The Valley on Saturday. She then finished second behind Adele Amour, and she can turn the tables.
Having Craig Williams in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 3. (14:10) Ladbroke It BM64 (1000m)
#11 – Decent Raine @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained three-year-old didn’t fire at The Valley last start, but the form out of that race has stacked up beautifully.
She was only 2.2 lengths behind Zouzarella, who won on Saturday. Her win at Echuca prior came by five lengths, so the ability is clearly there.
Looks well-placed to score at generous odds.
Race 4. (14:45) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM78 (1000m)
#4 – Snapper @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Snapper showed early speed last campaign and the former New Zealand sprinter must be considered here.
The son of Power scored back-to-back win at Moonee Valley before failing last time out at Caulfield. However, he didn’t have all favours and came to the end of his campaign.
His recent jumpout win at Flemington is a good sign, and we thought he would be shorter with bookmakers.
Race 5. (15:20) Ive Print BM70 (1000m)
#3 – Sugartown @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sugartown kicked off her preparation with consecutive wins before facing a rise in class in town. She didn’t quite handle racing at Flemington, but her placings at Caulfield rank well.
She was only a short margin behind Awapuni Princess in her most recent start, so that for, stacks up nicely and this level of racing is much easier.
$3 is likely to firm to around $2.20 come start time.
Race 6. (15:55) Tile Importer BM64 (1300m)
#1 – Linas Legend @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old son of Teofilo defied the betting drift last start at Echuca to score easily by 2.8 lengths.
He is a drifting favourite once again, but we’re sticking with him. He started his career by finishing second behind Generation at Caulfield before running third behind Blushing Tycoon at Flemington.
It’s open class form, so we can’t see any negatives.
Race 7. (16:30) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM70 (1300m)
#3 – The Garden @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Garden has already won three times this preparation and connections are being patient with the talented gelding.
They’re prepared to rise through the grades after scoring by a length at Sandown last start. He is a smart type in the making that has a future in the city.
Getting a 3kg claim is ideal and he won’t have to do much work off the inside draw.
Race 8. (17:05) MRC Super Box BM78 (1800m)
#13 – Yukon @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Yukon has had mixed results this preparation, but the four-year-old is talented enough to beat this field.
He scored a win at Randwick two back before running third behind Silent Agenda. Rising in class is the only worry, but Sydney form typically stacks up nicely.
Punters get each-way odds for the risk and we wouldn’t leave him out of calculations.
