Sandown Tips 14/6/2023


Race 3 No. 3  FERLAZZO- ($2.60)

This looks to be a suitable assignment for FERLAZZO. The Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained galloper scored in Maiden grade three starts ago at Ballarat and has run on well at her past couple, finishing 5th at Flemington before filling the exacta behind Perfect Ending at Mornington on May 31. On that occasion, the daughter of Tivaci settled worse than midfield in a slowly run affair before running on. She gets the blinkers for the first time and just needs to keep them in her sights from barrier 7 early on. 



Race 1 No 1  LADY IN PINK- ($2.85)

Looking to get the day off to a flyer and LADY IN PINK should be hard to beat. The Leon & Troy Corstens-trained galloper showed improvement when getting out to the 1300m two starts ago at Hillside, finishing runner-up behind Le Zebra in quick time. The winner out of that has since gone on to lead all the way at Flemington, while Lady In scored at Sandown over the 1200m. She settled handy on a slow tempo before sprinting well to win by more than a length from Optume. She has another crack at the track and trip and is the one they have to beat. 



Race 2 No. 7 MIDNIGHT LADY- ($3.55

MIDNIGHT LADY gives the impression she wants the 2400m and can go one spot better than a last start effort that saw her finish runner-up at Flemington over the 2000m on June 3. The Patrick Payne-trained galloper was stepping up from a Warracknabeal Maiden win over the 1800m at her start prior and started at big odds at headquarters before settling back in the run. She produced the fastest last 600m to just miss behind Verifier. A firmer in the early betting, the daughter of Highland Reel will be ridden by the 2kg claimer, Luke Campbell, who is one for two for the stable. 



Race 6 No 12 MR MOJO RISIN- ($6.60)

This might be the one for MR MOJO RISIN’ to chalk up his first win since coming over the Australia. The Kiwi was a winner in his homeland to kick off his current preparation before heading to Flemington over the 1400m and running 5th behind Euphoric. At his most recent start, the three-year-old settled midfield at Sandown and loomed to win in the slower section of the track along the inside before being bloused late by Cardigan Queen. He draws to save ground from barrier 1 for this assignment and gets the 3kg claim for the in-form apprentice, Wiremu Pinn.
