Sandown Racing Tips – Wed Mar 25th
We will be at Sandown this Wednesday.
Track: Good 4. Rail: Out 12m entire circuit.
Best Bet: Race 3 – LET’S GET TRAMPED
Race 1: Maiden Plate Set Weights 1500m
HE’S RUN AWAY (1) is an 8-start maiden that has placed at half of those races. He has had two runs back this campaign, resuming at Benalla he was held-up at a vital stage before running on hard into second. He then went to Cranbourne and again was the best from the back to run second. He jumps form 1200m-1500m third-up and should settle closer.
CRACKERJACK LILY (9) has only been to the races twice, she ran on well enough when resuming into third and should be better for the run. FORT WAYNE (4) debuted at Echuca and was heavily supported, he was very green and ok through the line. Up in trip, that weight of money at his first start cannot be ignored. KANSINO (10) ran on well enough on debut but was big odds.
Race 2: 2YO Fillies Handicap 1300m
D’ARBANVILLE (3) was good on debut then was beaten by the very smart Minhaaj up the straight last time. She showed a stack of speed and was well beaten but this is a lot easier. Willow sticks with the ride, she should be very hard to run down.
SUNFLARE (1) was heavily backed last start from double figures in and didn’t disappoint those that backed her. She had a perfect ride behind the speed and was way too good winning her maiden by more than 2 lengths. THALA (8) was sent out after being outclassed on debut, she was never in the race when resuming and was ok through the line. She gets the blinkers on and should settle closer. Watch for any money for one of the first-starters, in particular ROSE OF SEBRING (6) off the inside for the Hayes/Hayes/Dabernig yard.
Race 3: Class 1 Handicap 1300m
LET’S GET TRAMPED (3) was well supported on debut and started around the even money mark. HE showed good speed to lead and after kicking clear in the straight, never looked like getting run down. If he jumps well, hopefully he can kick through early and lead all the way again.
SOVEREIGN LEGEND (1) has the horror draw to deal with but he could not have been more impressive on debut. He was well back in the run after being easy in the betting, got to the outside and ran on well to win easily. Where does he get to in the run.
ZOUPINO (11) was only fair when resuming and although she was well beaten last time second-up, there were positives in the run. She may need a wet track? CIELO D’ORO (2) showed a good turn-of-foot but ran out of condition late first-up, he probably needs to go back from the wide draw and be saved for one run.
Race 4: BM70 Handicap 2400m
TIGRE ROYALE (9) placed here after doing a stack of work off the track two starts back, he then settled further back and was way too good after making a long run wide. Not overly keen on the jockey change going from Lane to John Allen, I am just hoping his talent gets him through. In saying that I do prefer Allen on stayers that get back over sprinters.
CLEMENTIA (7) is the horse that Lane rides, she was good in a harder race at Caulfield last start but does draw out and rises sharply in weight. You would presume he had the choice of rides though?
BUDD FOX (4) should race on the speed, he was a winner over 3000m last start and will keep grinding away. JUST A JOKE (8) won two in a row earlier in the prep when up on the speed, has only been fair since getting out in trip.
Race 5: BM64 Handicap 1800m
CARRIE (14) is an interesting runner. She is a former Japanese horse that was backed for a stack at her first Australian run in a Pakenham maiden. She eventually started odds-on, was slowly away before sitting back and wide. She improved very wide on the turn before running on hard. The margin was only 0.2 lengths but it was more than 4 back to third. The runner-up has since come out and run a good race and a horse beaten 10 lengths has since won a maiden.
Huge field with plenty of minor chances.
STEINBRENNER (7) was a Pakenham winner two starts back then led and faded late last time here at the track. He did a few things wrong and gets the tongue tie added. ANCHORMAN (11) has placed at his last 5 runs, he was brave in defeat here last time after sitting wide without cover. He maps a little better here. TOUCH OF MINK (8) has been up for a long time but should settle handy.
Race 6: 3YO Fillies BM64 Handicap 1300m
CHARLEISE (3) was brilliant winning her maiden when first-up last campaign, she led all the way before tackling some harder races against some of the better fillies in her age group. She has trialed well enough, would like to see some money for her.
It looks a very tough race. GLASSY MISS (4) charged home from the back to win a much easier Hamilton maiden on debut and then was sent to the paddock. She should settle closer form the good gate. LLESUR (12) was ok up the straight last start after getting back and running on back along closer to the inside in what may not have been the better going. BRAZEN SONG (9) has been up for an eternity and is racing consistently, she led them up at a mile last time but from the wide gate and back in trip, no doubt they will go back. Look for her late.
Race 7: Fillies and Mares BM70 Handicap 1600m
AFFAIR TO REMEMBER (11) was well supported when resuming here at the track a fortnight ago. She was beautifully ridden behind the speed, loomed up to win but just may have run out of condition late. John Allen from a wide barrier worries me but hopefully her class can get her through, she was only 4/1 in a Sandown Guineas in the Spring.
ALL TOO TERRIFIC (12) maps well and should have the cold sit on the leaders. She sat up outside the lead before getting very wide into the better going last time but faded late. This is harder. DUNS ‘N’ ROSES (4) comes back in trip after leading all the way at the Calley last time over 2000m. Zahra replacing Melham a positive or not? SELES (10) has been up for a long time, she doesn’t win out of turn but is a must for all exotic players with her consistency.
Race 8: BM64 Handicap 1500m
AMMOUDI BOY (1) has been good placing at his last two starts and this looks no harder. Last time at Geelong he was a mile back before getting very wide and running on hard to just miss in a blanket finish. He wasn’t suited the race prior after getting back, look for him late with the good claim.
RED ROSSINI (7) bolted in to win her maiden by 6 lengths resuming then went to Ballarat and led throughout although she was tip-toeing over the last 50m. Yendall sticks with, this is harder but should be hard to run down again with a soft sectional or two. LODESTAR (8) maps well and gets a good claim, the only time he has missed a place in his short career was in a Blue Diamond Preview. He should settle just on the leaders and if the track is playing to those on speed, I expect he will be well backed. PREDICATED (3) has been up for a very long time but is still racing very consistently, he has won or placed at 9 of 11 this time in.
