Sandown horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:30) Ladbroke It Maiden Plate (1400m)
#5 – Matsukaze @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Matsukaze is looking to cap off consecutive second placings with a win and he has been threatening to win.
The three-year-old son of Maurice finished within a length of the winner fresh up and form behind British Columbia should stack up nicely.
Craig Williams rides and he’s due a turnaround in his form.
Race 2. (15:05) Ladbrokes Switch BM70 (1300m)
#5 – Morean @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Morean couldn’t remain unbeaten at Pakenham last start but the Freedman-trained filly could rebound.
The three-year-old daughter of Divine Prophet was only 1.4 lengths behind the winner following a narrow win on debut.
Barrier four is ideal, and although she’s not the favourite to win, she could firm considerably on race day.
Race 3. (15:40) Ladbrokes Blended Bets BM70 (3000m)
#6 – Furioso @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters get value odds for Furioso, who improved significantly when rising in distance last start.
The Matthew Cumani-trained four-year-old finished only two lengths behind the winner and stepping up to the 3000m distance looks right up his alley.
Carrying 55.5kg is ideal and he should have every chance in the run to showcase his staying ability.
Race 4. (16:15) Ladbrokes Bet Ticker BM78 (1400m)
#3 – Logan Street Lion @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Logan Street Lion is gunning for three consecutive wins after scoring at Sandown and we fancy his chances of winning again.
The Chris Waller-trained son of Tavistock scored by only a nose, but it came against a tough field and all three wins have come over this distance.
Getting the inside draw ensures a good run and punters should climb into the odds.
Race 5. (16:50) Life Member John Collins BM70 (1000m)
#1 – Sense of Honour @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sense of Honour ended last campaign with a win at Flemington and that form stacks up nicely at the midweek level.
The daughter of Pride of Dubai won at Sandown on debut by three lengths before finishing fourth at Moonee Valley in a strong field.
Carrying 61kg isn’t ideal, but it doesn’t matter as much over 1000m. Jamie Kah rides and she’s in excellent form.
Race 6. (17:25) Life Member G Heaslip BM64 (1800m)
#5 – Oriental Legend @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
John Sadler lines up the three-year-old colt who is gunning for his third consecutive win after scoring at Pakenham.
The son of Snitzel won by a nose last time out in a driving finish and anything close to that effort should see him winning again.
He’s a smart type in the making, and although drawing barrier nine isn’t ideal, he has time to find cover and launch late.
Race 7. (18:00) Life Member A Lloyd BM64 (1500m)
#4 – Stagger Together @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stagger Together has won his last two starts and his turn-of-foot when winning at Bendigo last start was superior.
The four-year-old scored by 3.8 lengths in heavy conditions, which followed a narrow maiden win at Pakenham in good conditions.
He handles all tracks and punters should enjoy the $6.50 odds available.
Race 8. (18:30) Life Member M Scarcella BM64 (1300m)
#10 – Lafargue @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lafargue scored an overdue maiden win at Echuca last start and it came emphatically by 6.3 lengths.
The three-year-old gelding settled back and hit the line with power, which suggests that he’ll rise through the grades without much problem.
Having Kah in the saddle helps and his odds could firm.
