Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:40) Ladbroke It 0MW (1300m)
#6 – Touch of Navy @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Touch of Navy is a well-bred son of Merchant Navy who has been backed to win on debut.
He has looked solid in work, and although he hasn’t had any official trials, he could hit the ground running.
$3.90 is a fair price and we expect those odds to firm.
Race 2. (16:15) Ladbrokes Switch Maiden (1400m)
#11 – Susanne Joy @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team Corstens lines up the three-year-old filly who did well to finish third on debut at Geelong.
The daughter of Maurice was heavily backed on debut when running 2.5 lengths behind Perfect Darling, and the form has stacked up since.
Punters get value odds and she’s worth following.
Race 3. (16:50) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM64 (1400m)
#2 – Murrami Express @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Murrami Express has been an expensive bet for punters this season, but he could pay off loyal punters on Wednesday.
The Danny O’Brien-trained gelding comes off four consecutive placings where he was well-backed in every start. He was only a length behind the winner last start, but punters expect more.
Barrier two is ideal and rising in distance could be what he’s looking for.
Race 4. (17:25) Ladbrokes Blended Multis C1 (1200m)
#7 – Side Bet @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Side Bet capped off consistent form with a win at Yarra Glen last start and we like his chances of winning again.
The Matt Laurie-trained son of Sidestep won by a length and he had to dig deep to win, which is always a good sign.
Bookmakers are offering $6, which is too good to pass up.
Race 5. (18:00) Stud/Stable Staff Awards BM70 (3000m)
#5 – Mr Blackwood @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Blackwood scored an emphatic maiden victory at Moe last start and he looks set to rise through the grades.
The four-year-old son of Tavistock scored by 4.8 lengths when rising to 2400m, so rising to 3000m could result in more damage for the opposition.
Drawing barrier 16 is irrelevant over this distance and the $5 should firm considerably on race day.
Race 6. (18:30) Ladbrokes Money Back BM64 (1600m)
#1 – Here to Shock @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brent Stanley lines up the four-year-old who comes off a fourth placing at Flemington and that form bodes well.
The son of Shocking wasn’t too far behind Blazejowski, which is an excellent form line and the rise in distance shouldn’t be a worry.
We’re not surprised by the money coming for him and having Damien Oliver in the saddle helps.
Race 7. (19:00) Ladbrokes Same Race Multi BM64 (1400m)
#10 – Ocean’s Jen @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting for consecutive wins is Ocean’s Jen, who scored by 1.5 lengths at Cranbourne last start and she has upside.
The four-year-old daughter of Ocean Park showed a fine turn-of-foot to score, which suggests that she can rise through the grades.
Getting 2kg off her back helps and punters are right to back her with confidence.
Race 8. (19:30) Ladbrokes Fast Withdrawal BM64 (1200m)
#6 – Minouche @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old filly who hasn’t done much wrong in three career starts.
The daughter of Written Tycoon finished second at Canterbury on debut before winning at Newcastle. That earned her a start at Caulfield where she finished second behind Jillette, so that’s a good form guide.
Barrier 10 makes it harder, but we’re in her camp.
