Eight races at Sandown.
Eight races for the Punter’s Prince to go through.
All the best bets, confidence ratings and analysis for a juicy little card.
sandown race 1
A nice filly who competed in some pretty strong races during in her first campaign.
Comes back to the races with Damien Oliver booked first-up and is drawn to camp off the speed with a lovely run in transit.
Suggested Bet: Hoops each-way at $7.5 the win and $2.40 the place.
Confidence Rating: 4/10
sandown race 2
Debuted over 1717 metres at Sale and won like a very smart stayer.
Gets the Peter Moody polish and can easily make the progression to town.
Rise to 2400 metres looks ideal.
Suggested Bet: Insulation win at $2.40
Confidence Rating: 8/10
sandown race 3
#1 literary magnate
Has the strong winter three-year-old handicap form around the likes of Kir Royale and Jimmy The Bear.
This is a much easier race than what she has faced this campaign.
Two-kilo claim from Alana Kelly also does not go unnoticed.
Suggested Bet: Literary Magnate win at $2.30
Confidence Rating: 7.5/10
sandown race 4
Sweetzou is a zippy mare who flies fresh.
Three wins from four first-up runs suggests she will be fired up and ready to go.
Suggested Bet: Sweetzou win at $4.80
Confidence Rating: 3/10
sandown race 5
#9 cyclone sally
The more rain the better for this mare.
We know Mick Bell can lend his hand to a wet tracker – see Jungle Edge.
Should roll to the lead and handle the conditions with ease.
Suggested Bet: Cylcone Sally win at $4.80
Confidence Rating: 7/10
sandown race 6
Would be remiss not to have at least one Patrick Payne runner on the tipping sheet.
Stable is going better than ever and this four-year-old gelding is ready to peak third-up.
Rises to 1800 metres and will handle the heavy going.
Suggested Bet: Marcolt each-way at $7.5 the win and $2.60 the place.
Confidence Rating: 5/10
sandown race 7
Would not recommend betting on this race.
But for the sake of a tip, Cabinho ran a cracker up on the speed at Warrnambool last start.
Has had a gap between runs to freshen his legs and he will appreciate the rain-effected track.
Suggested Bet: Cabinho each-way at $9 the win and $3.10 the place.
Confidence Rating: 2/10
sandown race 8
#3 condo’s express
In a very hard way to end the day, we will have a throw at the stumps with Condo’s Express.
There was money around for him last start and he will be much fitter for the run.
Suggested Bet: Condo’s Express each-way at $21 the win and $5 the place.
Confidence Rating: 3/10
