Sandown (Wednesday) Betting Preview & Tips

Betting tips for every race. Today’s best bet is in race 7.

Tue, 13 Jun, 12:36 AM


The rail has been shifted back into the True position after being extended to the six metres position last time they raced here last week.

This should give all runners a fair chance on what looks a tough day with most even fields.

The track is rated as a Soft 5 - which is an improvement on the rain soaked tracks over the weekend - and with fine weather forecast it may firm up a little.




QUADDIES (races 5,6,7,8)

Skinny Play: 4,7,8 / 1,4,5 / 7,8 / 8,9  

Wide Play: 2,4,7,8,9,13 / 1,3,4,5,9,10 / 3,4,5,7,8,12 / 3,5,8,9,11



Next Best Bet: R8 – 9. DIAPASON

Best Roughie: R7– 3. RED SPYDER   

R1 – 1.00pm. Çhandler MacLeod Plate – 1400m.

No10 ZUBERINA was held up at a pivotal stage first-up when charging home to run fourth over 1400m in a maiden at Sale on June 1. The four-year-old mare was resuming from a long spell and Noel Callow has stuck here.


No11 MULK is a two-year-old against older horses but did run a great second against his own age over 1400m here last Wednesday. He is on the quick back up but does get top jockey Damien Oliver in his mission. Will be thereabouts.


No9 REDROUZ was backed from $4.40 into $3.20 when finishing second over 1200m in a maiden at Pakenham on May 25. That was her first start from a long spell and only her second campaign start. Not well drawn this time in 11.


No1 BLUE BEAR has continued to improve with each start. Latest ran second over 1400m in a maiden at Sale on June 1. That was only his third start and he gets the in-form Daniel Stackhouse to ride from eight.



R2 – 1.30pm. Dream Thoroughbred Handicap – 1400m.

No4 IT’S A SHAME BILLY struck a bog track when finishing third over 1400m at Pakenham on May 31. Has ben finishing in the minor placings at past four starts and looms with each-way claims here.


No9 NOTIO resumed with a sixth over 1400m at Ballarat on May 24 first-up. Was a noticeable drifter from $5 to $8.50 and would go on previous form when won here over 1400m last August. Has top apprentice Beau Mertens booked.


No8 LET’S GO TO RIO was a good winner over 1400m at Pakenham on May 25. Has not finished worse than second at three starts this campaign and has Ben Thompson’s 1.5kg claim reducing his impost to 56kg.





R3 – 2.00pm. Hamilton Reid Accountants Handicap – 1000m.

No5 BELIEVING was scratched from the long weekend to run here. He is a most consistent four-year-old and he warrants here on his last start second over 1000m at Pakenham on May 25. Ben Allen’s 1.5kg reduces his weight to 54kg.


No1 KALASHANI LAD resumed with a good third over 1200m here on May 27. He has an excellent second-up record of a win and two seconds at five starts. Brandon Stockdale’s 3kg claim drops his weight to 56kg.





R4 – 2.30pm. Chandler MacLeod Handicap– 1600m.

No5 RUBY SEA looked most impressive first-up to score a ¾ length win in a 1400m maiden for fillies at Cranbourne on May 19. She gets senior jockey Luke Nolen to ride here but does rise 2.5kg to 59kg. Has upside aplenty.


No2 LADY LEE ran a solid third over 1600m against her own age and sex here on May 27. Premier jockey Craig Williams stays on board and from barrier one she is going to get an easier run than last time.


No1 MANHATTAN VIXEN landed a smart ¾ length win against her own sex over 1400m as a $2.60 favourite at Ballarat on June 4. She returns here and does go up 2kg to 60.5kg for her last win. She is most honest and respect.


No3 LET ‘EM HOWL won over 1450m at Kilmore before finishing second to Manhattan Vixen over 1400m at Ballarat on June 4. She gets top apprentice Beau Mertens’ 1.5kg claim reducing her weight to 58kg.




No5 RUBY SEASandown AUS 05:30 - Winner

R5 – 3.00pm. Handicap – 1800m.

No7 BRASSY BELLE she was second-up when finishing ninth over 1600m against her own sex here on June 7. She is on the quick back up but has a critical gear change with the blinkers coming off. Give another chance.


No2 LORD AND MASTER Jordan Grob’s 3kg claim drops his impost to a comfortable 58kg. He hails from an astute stable and can improve on his 11th over 1720m at Sale last month. He was backed into $13.


No9 PENRYN PEARL battled on okay to the wire when finishing seventh over 1600m on a deteriorating track at Ballarat on June 4. Ben Allen’s 1.5kg claim drops her weight to 56.5kg and give a chance here.





R6 – 3.30pm. Ladbrokes Odds Boost – 2400m.

No9 SAVVY BANDIT comes here off a brilliant win over 2000m on a heavy 8 at Pakenham on May 31. With Ben Thompson’s 1.5kg claim he will carry 54.5kg and with two wins and a fifth at his past two starts is racing well.


No4 GRANDDUKEOFTUSCANY is an Irish bred import from the Melbourne Cup winning stable of Robert Hickmott. Warmed up with a solid sixth over 2100m here on June 7 and with Beau Mertens’ 1.5kg claim carries 55.5kg.


No1 SHAKOPEE ran a fair ninth in the Casteron Cup (2000m) on May 21. He has his first start for new trainer Simon Morrish here and gets top jockey Brad Rawiller to ride and the British import will have admirers.





R7 – 4.00pm. Le Pines Funeral Handicap – 1600m.

No8 YOGI (BEST BET) on a tough program to find best bets I’m sticking to Darren Weir’s talented four-year-old here. He ran a good second over 1600m at Bendigo first up on May 21. He has a solid second-up record and he gets premier jockey Craig Williams to steer from 12. He won impressively here four starts ago.


No7 LADY EFFORT she will need to get away clearly from the gates to be a chance. Respect.


No3 RED SPYDER (TOP ROUGHIE) expect to show improvement with top junior Beau Mertens going on board.


No5 NANGAWOOKA comes here off a smart win at Sale and warrants respect.



R8 – 4.30pm. The Cove Hotel Handicap – 1400m.

No9 DIAPASON (NEXT BEST BET) kicked back with a tenacious win over 1300m against her own sex at Cranbourne on May 26. She should arguably be unbeaten at her three starts as her sole defeat was here last month. The combination of trainer Chris Waller and jockey Craig Newitt has been most successful in Victoria and makes strong appeal.


No12 CHAMPAGNE READY is the stablemate to Diapason and can give Waller a quinella.


No6 DEVILISHLY had a heap of excuses last start but the barrier (16) is a hindrance.


No8 ANOTHER WHISPER her form has been top shelf and can again rely on for a top showing.
