Sandown Tips - June 15

Race 1 - 11:45am Ladbrokes Park Handicap (1200m)
Anthony Freedman has two horses in this race and It’s KING OF HASTINGS who I’m with here. Everything he has done so far in his short career has impressed me, including his terrific jumpout prior to his debut at Cranbourne. I was at Cranbourne that night and I was happy to be against him from his parade in the mounting yard. He seemed very new, was on his toes and was sweating on a very cold night. The market was trending that way late, as he was $2.10 out to $2.60 but in the end, it didn’t matter as he was far too good for his rivals. He got the perfect run in transit, on the back of the leader Oh So Rewarding but the win was still full of merit, as he ran an outstanding time of 8.6 lengths above the maiden benchmark, which was a full 15 lengths faster than the other two-year-old maiden winner Widespread for Godolphin. His overall time compared to the meeting was terrific too, as he ran 1.8 lengths above the overall benchmark and was the only horse to break benchmark for the entire meeting. The money has already come for him since I’ve done the form, as he is $4.40 into $3.50 and that doesn’t surprise me at all.

Race 5 - 2:05pm Ladbrokes Info Hub Handicap (2100m)
The A1 form coming into this race looks to be that 2000m race at Caulfield contested by Pacodali and BEAU BALMAIN and at the current prices, I’m in the corner of Beau Balmain. He was huge last start for his first run in Australia, running third behind Pacodali and Live And Free. He wasn’t ready from the mounting yard and still ran the fourth-fastest last 200m and third-fastest last 400m and 600m of the race. I love the way he moves and his action around Caulfield suggests to me that he will love the big, wide open spaces of Sandown. The map looks perfect for the two favourites, I have Darabad pushing up and leading Alward and Lucabelle, with Willi Willi and Thunder Cloud behind those. Beau Balmain should find himself in a perfect spot three pairs back in the running line with Pacodali on his back. 

Race 9 - 4:36pm Ladbrokes Multiverse Handicap (1400m)
The John McArdle-trained BRICKTOP looks well over the odds and is my best roughie of the day. The three-year-old Snitzel colt will get back and there looks to be plenty of speed on here, with the likes of Asgard Massif and Gennady both likely to roll forward from outside barriers. Our Campana led for Craig Williams last start but goes to Jye McNeil and they may elect to go back from barrier 11, Buffalo River won’t be far away and the likes of Meteor Rising, Kurcaine, Persuader and Fabric will all be looking to hold spots better than midfield. This will allow Bricktop to run on and is the inside is chopping up by race nine, he looks suited. He was completely unsuited at this track last start against Gennady and Part Time Lover, I thought his effort to finish fourth was outstanding. It was a day where you needed to be on or near the fence to win and he was flashing home out wide against the pattern, running the fastest last 200m of the meeting, second-fastest last 400m of the meeting and sixth-fastest last 600m of the meeting. I’m very surprised he is at such a big price and I’ll be having a decent each-way crack. 

Odds Correct as of 11:17am 13/06/2019

Previous Sandown Tips:

Race 4 - 2:10PM Eclipse Stakes (1800 METRES)
BRING ME ROSES has been knocking on the door for a while now and gets her chance to register a win when she lines up in the Eclipse Stakes (1800m). She was unlucky when running 4th in the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1400m) at Flemington three starts ago when resuming before being unsuited at Moonee Valley in the Tesio Stakes (1600m). At her last start she ran home very well behind Shillelagh in the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) and that form is good enough for this. The daughter of High Chaparral looks well placed and with Damien Oliver on board she will be hard to beat. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 7 - 4:00PM Ladbrokes Sandown Guineas (1600 METRES)
The Sandown Guineas is always a quality affair and is the first of two Group 2 races for the day. RINGERDINGDING is the one that looks to be peaking at the right time. He was one of very few that made ground at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day and his last start effort when overhauling Scottish Rogue in the Hilton On The Park (1400m) at Flemington was electrifying as he reeled off some very fast closing sectionals to score. The step up to the 1600m looks to be in his favour and with the leading trainer, Darren Weir, at the helm he can take this one out. 
Result (1st - $3.10)

Race 8 - 4:40PM Quayclean Zipping Classic (2400 METRES)
THE TAJ MAHAL will be going for back to back wins in the Zipping Classic after storming to a big win at Sandown a year ago and if you are prepared to forgive him for his last start failure, his prior form suggests that he can get the job done with Ben Melham on board. He comes out of the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m) and battled after enduring a very wide run on a day that suited those closer to the rail. Prior to that he served it up to Best Solution when running 5th in the Caulfield Cup (2400m). Look for Melham to give the five-year-old a bit of a quieter ride than some of his recent runs, saving plenty for the business end of the race. 
Result (1st - $4.20)
