Sandown horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (15:40) Ive Print Maiden (1300m)

#8 – Spring Valley @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Spring Valley owns two placings from three starts, including a placing at Stony Creek last time to the races.

The three-year-old filly hit the line nicely after settling too far back, so we expect her to be in a handier position.

Barrier two is ideal and punters get each-way odds.

Race 2. (16:15) Ladbroke It Handicap (1300m)

#5 – Sir Bailey @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Sir Bailey had solid betting support on debut when running third as an odds-on chance. The Maher/Eustace-trained colt was only a length behind the winner, so it was a passable performance.

The son of Impending will be better for the experience and getting the inside draw with Jamie Kah in the saddle only helps.

He is out of Jameka, so the breeding is there.

Race 3. (16:50) Ladbrokes Odds Multi BM64 (2400m)

#5 – Eaton @ $13 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Eaton isn’t always the most consistent runner going around, but we’re prepared to take the value on offer.

The experienced nine-year-old is a past winner at Sandown and a two-time winner at the distance, so the statistics bode well.

Having Damien Oliver in the saddle could turn his form around.

Race 4. (17:25) Remembering J Fotopuolos BM64 (1800m)

#1 – Castlereagh Kid @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Castlereagh Kid comes off a dominant eight-length win at Gosford, so that form has to be respected at Sandown.

The Waterhouse/Bott-trained three-year-old could be having a run in Melbourne to prepare for the Derby, so he’s worth watching.

He gets every chance to find the front from the inside draw and it’s another good for Oliver.

Race 5. (18:00) Stud and Stable Awards BM70 (1300m)

#2 – Rapid Achiever @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Rapid Achiever started her career with consecutive wins at Donald and Sandown before running second at Bendigo.

The daughter of Wootton Bassett hit the ground running with a 3.3-length win, so punters should have no fears about her being ready to fire.

Money is coming for her and she’s worth following.

Race 6. (18:30) Ladbrokes Cash In BM64 (1000m)

#1 – Lloyd’s Crown @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Lloyd’s Crown has been heavily supported and with good reason. He comes off some solid efforts at Flemington, which is good form for this level.

He ran third behind the highly talented Ranch Hand before running sixth behind Kallos, so it’s red-hot form for midweek racing.

He’s unbeaten at Sandown, so the $3.30 could firm on race day.

Race 7. (19:00) Ladbrokes Card BM64 (1000m)

#4 – More @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet

More is a three-time winner from nine starts, and although she can be inconsistent, she shouldn’t be overlooked.

The four-year-old mare owns two wins over the distance, so the short-course distance is best, and it’s another good ride for Kah.

Punters get odds worth taking and we’re happy to have her on our ticket.

Race 8. (19:30) Ladbrokes Withdrawals BM64 (1400m)

#1 – Vahash @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Vahash was good enough to score back-to-back wins last preparation and that form stacks up nicely on Wednesday.

The six-year-old son of Written Tycoon struggled at Geelong last time out, but he was given a well-deserved break and he returned with a trial win.

Getting 3kg off his back is ideal and punters get odds worth snapping up.
