Wednesday Sandown Racing Previews & Tips - 10th July
The Patrick Payne stable has been on fire of late and that is set to continue at Sandown today.
Strong meeting at Sandown but with the rail out 12m and a bit of sting out of the ground, there could be some value thrown up today. Our top pick is a lightly raced gelding trained out of the in-form stable of Patrick Payne and went down fighting last start at Morphettville after conceding weight to the winner. Is good enough to bounce back and should be winning better races than this.
Sandown is racing on a Soft 6 with the rail out 12m entire.
Sandown Race 1 - 12:25PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Handicap (1000 Metres)
WAHINE kept kicking and raced away to a emphatic 3.3 length victory in a weaker race at Donald last start and the way she finished the race will see her take a power of beating over the 1000m. Gets the tongue tie on and expected to go close to making it two from two since resuming from a spell. Major player.
1st: No8 WAHINE 2nd: No2 Asateer; 3rd: No4 Fundraising 4th: No6 Anubis
Sandown Race 2 - 1:00PM Yulong Handicap (1400 Metres)
Liked the way DESERT DREAMER kicked clear in the straight to defeat his rivals by2.5 lengths at Echuca three weeks back and with the freshen up under his belt we expect this galloper to go close to making it successive victories. Key player.
1st: No1 DESERT DREAMER 2nd: No4 Zee Hoarder; 3rd No2 Yulong Stride; 4th: No7 Parmie
Sandown Race 3 - 1:35PM Long Fine Plate (1600 Metres)
After finishing 1.2 lengths behind Lucky Wick on this track last start PAINT THE TOWN TWO will be looking to bounce back and looks big threat with the gun draw here today. Has placed four times from six starts over the distance so the victory isn’t far away, Gets in well today.
1st: No8 PAINT THE TOWN TWO 2nd: No10 Habesha; 3rd: No1 Lucky Wick 4th: No3 Pure Colour
Sandown Race 4 - 2:10PM MRC Membership Renewal Handicap (2400 Metres)
MIRIMAR has missed the place once from her past six starts and going on her length victory on this track two starts back, he is the one they all need to beat. Finished half a length behind Future Score last start with the winner going on to salute at Flemington last Saturday. Major player.
1st: No6 MIRIMAR 2nd: No7 Eckhart 3rd: No3 Bea Tempted 4th: No2 Chelkar
Sandown Race 5 - 2:45PM Blue Star Print Handicap (1800 Metres)
HOSTAR (NEXT BEST BET) chased hard from the tail of the field to defeat Exasperate by 1.2 length on this track last start and going on the manor in which he stormed home, shapes as the one to beat. Gets in well with the 2kg claim for Michael Poy. Has won twice from as many starts on Heavy.
1st: No8 HOSTAR 2nd: No9 Saucy Jack; 3rd: No3 Patch Adams, 4th: No4 Mercy Street
Sandown Race 6 - 3:20PM Clanbrooke Racing Handicap (1000 Metres)
WHENEVER WHEREVER (BEST BET) is a lightly raced gelding that won his first two starts before tasting defeat for the first time at Morphettville on June 15 when conceding 4kg to the winner. Has a wide draw to deal with but he does have a touch of class and has handled the Heavy track previously. Top pick!
1st: No3 WHENEVER WHEREVER 2nd: No5 General Short; 3rd: No7 Physicality; 4th: No6 Zaidin
Sandown Race 7 - 3:55PM Le Pine Funerals Handicap (1000 Metres)
ALUF is racing in great form of late and despite the big weight rise of 5kgs, we believe this galloper can run a huge race despite the market showing otherwise. Liked the way he stormed home to put pay to his rivals last start and with the extra weight expect him to be saved for one big crack at them in the straight. Win won’t shock.
1st: No1 ALUF 2nd: No4 Tavisan; 3rd: No8 Street Tough 4th: No9 Diamond Oasis
Sandown Race 8 - 4:30PM The Big Screen Company Handicap (1300 Metres)
MR TIPLA will be rock hard fit fourth-up from a break and looks a lively hope to take out the final race of the program at Sandown today. Look for him to be coming home hard late with his good turn of foot. Looks suited, danger.
1st: No4 MR TIPLA 2nd: No1 Play Master; 3rd: No2 Don’t Blush Baby 4th: No8 Shir
