We lob down to Sandown for the midweek meeting.
The team at BetDeluxe has gone through all the races to find the best bets ahead of a cracker of an eight-race program.
A Chris Waller first start looks ready to make his mark on debut as well and a resuming mare might just be ready to fire in race seven.
Sandown race 1
Surcote looks a nice mover with natural gate speed from what we saw in his Flemington jump out win over 800 metres.
He is a very nicely bred gelding being sired by Group 1-winning horse Exosphere.
Chris Waller should have him primed to go first-up especially with the booking of jockey Craig Williams.
Barrier four is critical to his chances with Williams likely to score up and find a spot handy to the lead speed should he not find the lead himself.
Will likely start much shorter than the $3.90 on offer.
Suggested Bet: Surcote win at $3.90
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 9, 10, 11, 15
Sandown race 5
#12 Wolf Skill
Has the perfect run with cover when winning his debut on what was a very windy day down at Geelong.
She scooted home late in the race to fly over the top of the leader who was heavily backed favourite.
The run showed us that she has a very sharp turn of foot when required and that will be her big advantage over a field that has plenty of convictions about it.
There is every chance Craig Williams could land in the first two or three in the run given the rise in distance against much slower opposition than the debut run.
Would be shocked to see this filly start any longer than $3.5 should the tactics be positive from the barrier.
Suggested Bet: Wolf Skill win at $3.5
sandown race 7
#11 unique artist
She might be a staying mare who will require further distance than 1400 metres to be at her best, but this race looks to set up better than expected.
She has had two solid trials over 800 metres and 1000 metres at her home track in Pakenham to get her ready for this first-up assault.
Phillip Stokes does have a knack of getting his horses firing when fresh and she does have the speed to able to find a handy spot in the run from barrier three.
There is no announcement regarding any gear change, but she did wear blinkers last preparation.
Keep an eye out to see if they have stayed on for the resuming run.
If so, have a solid each-way bet on her.
Suggested Bet: Unique Artist each-way at $11 the win and $3.5 the place.
Suggested Exotic: Boxed First Four – 1, 10, 11, 12
sandown race 8
#6 Kentucky Casanova
Kentucky Casanova is a four-year-old gelding for the small stable of Michael Huglin and is set for a big run upon resumption from a spell.
After winning on debut last preparation and then running third behind city-performed Crestani, Huglin opted to spell his gelding and let him grow into a bigger and better horse.
He seems to have came back in very nice order after some nice jump outs to get him set for this race.
Expect him to land in the land and attempt to run his rivals ragged.
The market will tell you if he is fit enough to lead all the way, so pay particular attention to the final 10 to 15 minutes of betting.
If he stays firm at around his current quote of around about the $2.7 or shorter, fully expect him to win.
Suggested Bet: Kentucky Casanova win at $2.7
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 4 & 6
