Sandown Racing Tips 1.09.2021 - Follow last-start winners


Sandown hosts a Wednesday meeting on September 1, and we have our four best bets. Three of our four runners are last-start winners, so it could pay to follow the form runners in Melbourne this week. They are also potential spring racing contenders, so all eyes are on the meeting.
  • Race 3 2:10pm AEST – No. 12 Devout Hero
  • Race 5 3:20pm AEST – No. 12 Quintello
  • Race 7 4:30pm AEST – No. 10 Narvaez
  • Race 8 5:05pm AEST – No. 2 He’s the Real Deel


Race 3 2:10pm AEST – No. 12 Devout Hero


Devout Hero is seeking to remain unbeaten after winning at Geelong on debut. The three-year-old filly scored by 1.3 lengths on a rain-affected track at Geelong, which bodes well for the rest of her career in Melbourne. She is a daughter of No Nay Never, which has an excellent record with his progeny, and Devout Hero looks like another classy type.

She showed an impressive turn-of-foot in her maiden win and rising to 1400m looks ideal. Carrying 55.5kg is another positive and having the experienced Luke Currie in the saddle only strengthen her chances on Wednesday. Punters get $4.80 and we expect those odds to firm on race day.

Race 5 3:20pm AEST – No. 12 Quintello


Money is coming for Quintello and her $2.80 odds won’t last long. She has already been backed in from an opening quote of $3.50, so punters should expect a big effort. The five-year-old mare comes off consecutive wins at Warracknabeel and Sandown, so she’s in form and ready to win her third race in a row. She broke maidens with a 4.5-length victory before doubling down at Sandown by 2.5 lengths.

Both wins have been mightily impressive, and we rated her a $2.20 chance. She could get that low with bookmakers, so take the current price.

Race 7 4:30pm AEST – No. 10 Narvaez


Narvaez meets an even field for his return, and we’re not surprised by the shortening odds. The four-year-old son of Vancouver is a two-time winner from 14 starts, and he has faced harder fields than this throughout his career. He ran second at Sandown three back before running down the track at Caulfield behind Parure. However, his run for fifth at Moonee Valley is a good betting guide.

He’s unbeaten at Sandown, and although he’s better with a couple of runs under his belt, he owns two fresh-up placings, so he can’t be overlooked at each-way odds.

Race 8 5:05pm AEST – No. 2 He’s the Real Deel


Shooting for three in a row is He’s the Real Deel, who won at Sandown Lakeside before winning at Hillside last start. The Matthew Brown-trained son of Dundeel is working through his gears nicely and there was plenty to enjoy about his five-length win last time out. He was dominant in the run to the line, so he shouldn’t stay in this company for very long.

3kg comes off his back and he only needs luck from barrier 14 to be in contention. There is no trepidation with punters, who have backed his opening quote of $4.60 down to $3.90. That’s a solid move and we expect to see more positive betting action come his way.
