Sandown horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:10) Ive Print Handicap (1000m)
#5 – Hell Hound @ $2.50 – Bet @ Neds
Hell Hound was an impressive winner on debut at Terang and we like her chances of remaining unbeaten.
The two-year-old filly won by 1.8 lengths after showing a nice turn-of-foot and she almost broke the track record, which is a fair effort.
There is hype around this runner and we’re in her camp.
Race 2. (12:45) Tobin Bros Celeb Lives BM78 (2400m)
#7 – The Nephew @ $4 – Bet @ Neds
The Nephew owns three wins and two placings from nine starts and he wasn’t far behind a smart one at Sandown last start.
He finished second behind the unbeaten The Detonator, so that form bodes well and he shouldn’t find this race any harder.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters should be happy with the $4.
Race 3. (13:20) Ladbroke It BM70 (1300m)
#1 – Jucconi @ $3 – Bet @ Neds
The four-year-old gelding is already a three-time winner from four starts and that form should continue on Saturday.
He comes off a win at Moonee Valley by 1.3 lengths, and despite drawing barrier 12 with an apprentice in the saddle, he has natural barrier speed.
Punters get fair odds and the $3 could shorten.
Race 4. (13:55) Ladbrokes Split Multis BM78 (1300m)
#1 – Agreeable @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
Agreeable runs her best races fresh up with three starts for a win and two placings, so he could strike in this state.
The Freedman-trained four-year-old has yet to race at Sandown, but the long straight should suit as he needs time to warm up.
Getting 2kg off his back helps and punters get each-way odds.
Race 5. (14:30) Senet Gambling Law BM70 (1300m)
#10 – Jayanthi @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds
Jayanthi ran well on debut on a heavy track before winning at Ballarat on a much better surface.
The Maher/Eustace-trained three-year-old scored by 1.5 lengths as the odds-on favourite, so punters are getting much better odds this time around.
It’s a harder field on Saturday, but we’re prepared to take the risk given the potential outcome.
Race 6. (15:10) Boxing Challenge BM84 (1000m)
#10 – Starry Legend @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Starry Legend doesn’t have any recent winning form but the three-year-old won his only start at Sandown.
The three-year-old son of Zoustar is also a three-time winner at the distance and dropping to 53.5kg makes him tough to beat.
He has been specked at the price and we fancy his chances of winning.
Race 7. (15:50) Tile Importer Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Belle Savoir @ $3.70 – Bet @ Neds
Belle Savoir won her first two starts at Ballarat and Sandown before running fourth at Caulfield.
Her win at Sandown was a tough effort and the Nick Ryan-trained filly could get back to her best on this track.
Rising in distance to the mile suits and punters get odds worth taking.
Race 8. (16:25) Ladbrokes Anniversary Vase (1400m)
#5 – Regardsmaree @ $4 – Bet @ Neds
Regardsmaree scored by a nose over the likes of Lombardo last start, which should be a good form guide.
The five-year-old gelding doesn’t win consecutive races all that often, but the son of So You Think is a five-time winner at the distance.
Expect him to settle back and come with a big late burst.
Race 9. (16:55) Thoroughbred Club BM78 (1600m)
#6 – Sir Davy @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
Sir Davy is gunning for three consecutive wins after scoring at Warrnambool and Sandown, so the form stacks up.
The four-year-old son of Street Boss owns four wins and four placings from 10 starts. He doesn’t know how to run a bad race and only the wide barrier is a concern.
Watch for him to settle off the pace and work into the race down the back straight.
