Sandown Tips - 21st July
Get our best bets for Sandown on Wednesday.
Race 1 12:25pm AEST – No. 3 Saint Tropez
Punters get excellent value with Saint Tropez, who scored a solid one-length victory at Echuca last start. The two-year-old son of Not a Single Doubt didn’t show much when running eighth on debut at Geelong, but he improved significantly last start and he could rise through the grades nicely throughout the winter.
Lloyd Kennewell lines up the colt and he has already shown that he can handle the heavy tracks. He faces a much harder field here, but punters should be confident in knowing he handles the wet. It’s a big advantage and getting double-figure odds is well worth the risk.
Race 3 1:35pm AEST – No. 2 Capri Lane
Capri Lane is another runner paying generous odds at Sandown. The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding has been racing well in New South Wales and that form typically stacks up well in Victoria. The son of Proisir owns four wins and two placings from 13 starts, so he’s always around the mark and there is plenty to like about his recent form.
He won three starts back and followed it up with a third placing at Nowra. The four-year-old then went to Hawkesbury and scored a one-length win in heavy conditions, so that bodes well and he followed it up with a trial win at Warwick Farm. Getting 3kg off his back is ideal and although drawn wide, he only needs luck to figure in the finish at big odds.
Race 6 3:20pm AEST – No. 13 Toomuchtobear
Chris Waller lines up the three-year-old gelding that broke maiden grades with a narrow win at Bendigo last start. The son of Press Statement defeated Mr Brightside, who has since put lengths on a maiden field last week and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely throughout the winter. He has yet to finish worse than third from four career starts and we don’t think the rise in class will matter too much.
Jumping from barrier two and having Craig Williams in the saddle is a bonus and there has been a steady flow of money come his way. He opened at $3.90 and those odds were never going to last long. He’s a capable type that should go close to winning consecutive races.
Race 8 4:30pm AEST – No. 7 Perennial
Consistency is with Perennial, who has rattled off four placings from her last five starts. The Peter Moody-trained four-year-old owns two wins and 11 placings from 19 starts, including a second placing against a similar field last time out. She will need to do work from barrier 11, but Luke Nolen rides and he should be able to find a good spot in running.
The daughter of Per Incanto has yet to finish worse than third in three starts at Sandown and we’re not expecting that to change on Wednesday. She is always worth backing and punters get to enjoy each-way odds. She could firm close to starting time, so locking in the odds available would be a sound strategy.
