Sandown horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (12:30) The Big Screen Company (1400m)

#1 – Foujita Sam @ $1.30 – Bet @ PlayUp

Foujita Sam ran a narrow margin behind Zamborghini on debut and that’s why he’s the short-priced favourite.

The Hawkes-trained colt was well-backed to win and that’s not surprising given his performance, so the $1.30 should be added to multi bets.

We can’t see the opposition getting close.

Race 2. (13:00) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1200m)

#1 – Chief Altony @ $5.50 – Bet @ PlayUp

Chief Altony comes off a second placing behind Mr Brightside, who has since won the Group 1 Doncaster Mile.

It might have come over 1600m last year, but the five-year-old gelding goes well fresh up and he has yet to miss a placing at the 1200m.

He gets 3kg off his back and we’re liking the each-way odds available.

Race 3. (13:35) Ladbroke It BM78 (3000m)

#2 – Convict Sam @ $4 – Bet @ PlayUp

Convict Sam wasn’t far behind Budd Fox at Sandown last start and we like his chances of going one better.

The six-year-old gelding won his only start at Lakeside and we thought he could be shorter in betting, so take the odds available.

He will get a soft run throughout and conditions shouldn’t worry him.

Race 4. (14:10) Tile Importer Good Friday BM64 (1400m)

#3 – Worsfold @ $2.50 – Bet @ PlayUp

Worsfold is unbeaten in two fresh up starts and the five-year-old gelding is a speedy customer on his day.

He owns three wins and three placings from nine starts, including a win at his only start over this distance.

Getting a 3kg claimer is ideal and he could out-pace them at Sandown, so take the odds available.

Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM64 (1400m)

#6 – Set the Sails @ $5 – Bet @ PlayUp

The three-year-old has good form lines after winning at Pakenham two starts back. He defeated some nice types before running third at Morphettville behind Ancient Girl.

He has been around the mark since making his debut last preparation and his only win came over 1400m, which bodes well.

Barrier two with Jamie Kah is ideal and we like the odds available.

Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM70 (1600m)

#2 – Sir Davy @ $3 – Bet @ PlayUp

Sir Davy scored narrowly as an odds-on favourite last start and he could go back-to-back in similar circumstances.

The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding was slightly too good for them at Warrnambool and he showed a good turn-of-foot late.

Anything close to that effort should see him running well on Wednesday.

Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM70 (2100m)

#9 – My Delight @ $4.80 – Bet @ PlayUp

My Delight has firmed since markets opened and that is a good sign. The Chris Waller-trained mare opened at $6 and has firmed into $4.80, which is a sizable move.

She is a two-time winner from 15 starts, so she doesn’t win often but her most recent starts have come against tough fields at Moonee Valley.

This is easier and she could get the job done.

Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM64 (1200m)

#2 – Finance Choice @ $4.60 – Bet @ PlayUp

The Tom Dabernig-trained gelding opened his account with back-to-back wins and his form since has been solid.

He comes off a third placing at Flemington when racing in BM80 grade, so dropping right back in class is a massive bonus.

The son of Extreme Choice is bred to be good and his opening price of $5.50 was never going to last long, so punters have climbed onboard.

Race 9. (17:05) Ive Print BM64 (1200m)

#5 – Head First @ $3.90 – Bet @ PlayUp

Head First kicked off her career with a win at Wodonga in heavy conditions and she went close at Sandown last start.

The Price/Kent-trained daughter of Headwater was only 1.5 lengths behind Lempicka, in what was a strong field.

She should enjoy this level of racing and punters get value odds.
