Sandown horse racing tips & form

Race 1. (15:40) Ladbroke It Maiden (1300m)

#5 – Cateechee @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Cateechee was only a nose behind the winner at Bendigo last start and that form stacks up nicely for maiden level.

The Mike Moroney stable is firing this season and he lines up the three-year-old daughter of Lonhro, who looks to have a bright future.

She has stayed rock-solid in betting markets, which is a good sign.

Race 2. (16:15) Ladbrokes Mega Multi Maiden (1500m)

#8 – Prix de Turn @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Prix de Turn is better than his form suggests after taking on tough opposition in town.

The Matthew Brown-trained colt finished eighth behind Coastwatch at Caulfield two weeks ago and that form is tops for maiden racing.

He finished second behind Extreme Flight on debut before running behind Anamoe, so the $3.10 is worth locking in before it drops.

Race 3. (16:45) Tile Importer BM70 (2400m)

#9 – Spirit of Gold @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Spirit of Gold was good enough to score back-to-back wins earlier this preparation and anything close to that is good enough.

The Peter Moody-trained mare has since run third at Caulfield behind My Delight before running solidly at Moonee Valley.

She should appreciate this distance and being on the quick back-up from Friday should see her right in the mix.

Race 4. (17:25) Tobin Bros Celeb Lives BM64 (1000m)

#5 – Fire @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Fire was scratched at the barriers last time out but he has since had two trials for a win and a placing.

The talented Hawkes-trained gelding looked good when winning at Bendigo by 2.8 lengths and he comes off a stylish trial placing.

$2.10 for a classy type is good money and he should rise through the grades without much problem.

Race 5. (18:00) Stud and Stable Awards BM64 (1000m)

#1 – Tycoon Humma @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Tycoon Humma didn’t show her best stuff last campaign but the daughter of Capitalist is talented.

The John McArdle-trained filly finished behind the likes of Crystal Bound, Gimmie Par and Seradess, which is excellent form.

Her recent trial placing is ideal and we’re prepared to take her at the value odds.

Race 6. (18:30) Be a Mate Nominate BM70 (1000m)

#6 – Jenni Esprit @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Jenni Esprit is a three-time winner from seven starts, so she’s dangerous when she’s on her game.

The four-year-old daughter of Bel Esprit scored fresh up at Cranbourne and got back to her best when beating two rivals at Sale.

Punters get value odds for Jenni Esprit, so she’s worth having on the ticket.

Race 7. (19:00) Ladbrokes Live Betting BM64 (1300m)

#2 – Sir Davy @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet

There was nothing wrong with the run of Sir Davy fresh up at Pakenham. He settled back and charged home, so it’s an encouraging effort.

The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old has finished in the money in five of his seven starts, including winning both starts over 1300m.

Getting 2kg off his back helps and we’re loving the odds available.

Race 8. (19:30) Ladbrokes Punter Assist BM78 (1400m)

#10 – Ocean’s Jen @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Dropping to 53kg is ideal for Ocean’s Jen, who is shooting for three consecutive wins.

The Maher/Eustace-trained mare scored by a length against a tidy field last start and it backed up a 1.5-length win at Cranbourne.

We’re surprised her odds have drifted after opening at $3.20, but we’ll happily take the better price.
