Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Ive Print BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Here to Shock @ $3.70 – Bet @ PlayUp
Here to Shock looked good winning at Sandown to end last preparation and we’re backing him to get back to his best.
The four-year-old gelding kicked off his campaign with a fourth behind Skywolf and there’s nothing wrong with that form going forward.
Barrier 13 is the only worry but punters get odds worth taking and he’s worth the risk at the price.
Race 2. (13:00) Tile Importer BM78 (2100m)
#3 – Flossing @ $5 – Bet @ PlayUp
Flossing owns four wins and four placings from 14 starts, so he has every chance to add to his record on Wednesday.
The four-year-old son of Tavistock has already won three times this preparation and the stable is firing. His last-start win at Bendigo came by 3.5 lengths and the form stacks up nicely.
Getting $5 is a fair price and those odds could firm on race day.
Race 3. (13:35) Ladbroke It BM70 (2400m)
#5 – Pepper’s Ghost @ $6.50 – Bet @ PlayUp
Pepper’s Ghost doesn’t win all that often but the four-year-old gelding is running well enough to beat this field.
The son of Al Maher comes off a fourth at Mornington behind Sign Seal Deliver and he ran third at Sandown prior to that.
It’s good form and the each-way odds make him worth backing.
Race 4. (14:10) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1300m)
#10 – Gentility @ $3.30 – Bet @ PlayUp
Gentility won on debut at Mornington by 3.8 lengths before facing a tough field at Caulfield and Sandown.
The three-year-old daughter of Snitzel ran third behind some smart types at Sandown, including My Yankee Girl and Adele Amour.
Most of the money has come her way since markets opened and the $3.30 could shorten to around $2.80 on race day.
Race 5. (14:45) Ladbrokes Mates Mode BM70 (1200m)
#5 – So Risque @ $5 – Bet @ PlayUp
So Risque is a talented four-year-old with three wins from six starts, including an unbeaten fresh up record.
The son of So You Think didn’t fire at Caulfield last time out but that came against a tough field and getting 2kg off his back helps.
Barrier six is ideal and the odds are worth snapping.
Race 6. (15:20) Ladbrokes Easy Form BM64 (1200m)
#6 – Writey O’pal @ $4.20 – Bet @ PlayUp
The three-year-old son of Written Tycoon won on debut at Pakenham before running well in some tough races in the city.
He finished fourth behind Scissor Step at Caulfield before running fourth at Flemington behind Star Patrol and that’s excellent form for midweek racing.
We’re not surprised by the money coming for the favourite.
Race 7. (15:55) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM70 (1600m)
#11 – Liberated Girl @ $3.40 – Bet @ PlayUp
Liberated Girl was another debut winner at Mornington before finishing fifth at Flemington behind Kir Royale.
The three-year-old, who is trained by Peter Moody, looks well-placed for this race and jumping from barrier three gives her every chance in the run.
Her opening odds of $4.40 have firmed considerably.
Race 8. (16:30) Ladbrokes Mega Multi BM70 (1600m)
#1 – Fifth Position @ $6 – Bet @ PlayUp
Fifth Position is only a two-time winner from 20 starts but he’s never too far away from the mark.
The son of Dark Angel finished third at Sandown last time out and a repeat of that effort could be enough to get him over the line.
Dropping in weight with the 3kg claimer helps and we’re happy with the odds.
