Oddschecker tips for every race at Sandown on Wednesday.
Persian Royal merits plenty of respect having got off the mark at Doncaster last time, although a 5lb rise will make his life tougher. With that in mind, preference is for D DAY ODETTE, who was not beaten far on her handicap bow at Newmarket 32 days ago and she remains open to further improvement. Two Tempting edges out Iskaheen to be the pick of the remainder. Prediction : 1st D Day Odette 2nd Persian Royal 3rd Two Tempting
BOOM BOOM POW has filled second place in all three of her starts in novice/maiden company and the daughter of Havana Grey could go one better on her nursery debut off a mark of 71. Safari Dream was up against it in the Super Sprint last time but is a player based on his previous form, while similar comments apply to Armour Propre. Prediction : 1st Boom Boom Pow 2nd Safari Dream 3rd Armour Propre
FLYING HONOURS failed to reward favourite backers when finishing fourth on his debut at Newmarket earlier in the month but plenty of positives can still be taken from that effort. The son of Sea The Stars can only improve for that experience and it would be no surprise to see him take a significant step forward tonight. Starnberg and Lisboa are others with strong form claims, while Mindset and Mudskipper are both noteworthy newcomers. Prediction : 1st Flying Honours 2nd Starnberg 3rd Lisboa
MERCURIUS POWER won over C&D last Wednesday and the son of Awtaad makes plenty of appeal with the 5lb penalty incurred for that success being negated by his rider's claim. Aldhaja didn't appear to get home over 1m2f here at the Eclipse meeting and the drop back in trip is likely to see him be more competitive, while an ease in grade may benefit Hortzadar.Prediction : 1st Mercurius Power 2nd Aldhaja 3rd Hortzadar
CANTERBURY BELL appeals as the type who will keep on progressing, having won on her return in a classified event at Nottingham in May, and the half-sister to Group 2 winner Lilac Road is expected to benefit from the extra yardage on this occasion. Danza Della Luna was an easy winner of her latest start at Pontefract and she is respected despite going up 8lb, while others to note include Arclight and Cookies And Creme.Prediction : 1st Canterbury Bell 2nd Danza Della Luna 3rd Arclight
TUDDENHAM GREEN ran with promise on his handicap debut when third at Haydock at the end of last month behind a progressive type who has since followed up that success. Alan King's gelding was keen in the early part of that contest, but that was more likely to be down to freshness with it being his first outing since November, and the son of Nathaniel has the scope to progress from that effort. First Officer's third at Ascot ties in with the selection and he shaped as though the extra couple of furlongs would bring about improvement, while Suspicious is bred to stay well and is expected to leave behind her return to action at Wolverhampton.Prediction : 1st Tuddenham Green 2nd First Officer 3rd Suspicious
