We head to Sandown Park for a 12-race card ahead of Thursday night greyhound racing.
The BetDeluxe team has hunted down all the value and bets bets on the program.
sandown park race 1
#2 soda success
We were successful tipping against Soda Success last start, but this time we are going to be in his corner.
The Max Auld-trained chaser is still learning his craft as a race dog and he now gets the chance to find that so far elusive second victory of his career.
He returns to Sandown Park, which is the scene of his only career win and the place he had turned in his best performances.
Drawn to get the all favours from box two, he should be able to find clear room early in the race and prove too quick for his rivals in the concluding stages.
Suggested Bet: Soda Success win at $2.45
sandown park race 2
#1 Lillico Nikki
We have a great betting opportunity in the form of Lillico Nikki who has now drifted to second favourite since the markets opened.
She has run in town at Sandown at four of her last five starts and, despite not winning, she has put together a handy form line that is going to be hard to beat here.
She should be able to hold out George’s Fancy crossing over from box eight.
If that occurs, this field will not be chasing her down.
Suggested Bet: Lillico Nikki win at $2.70
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 1 & 8
Sandown park race 6
#3 Well Grounded
Well Grounded is ready to make his return to the winners list in a race that looks to shape up nicely for him.
Angela Langton has him ticking over nicely after a solid third-place effort at Sandown Park over the 595 metres last start, which will have him cherry ripe for this race.
He may just very well have the pace to out do the two favourites drawn inside and outside of him in this race.
If he can bound the front and hit the lead before the first corner without any dramas, he has a big fitness base and the nous around this track to able to hold off the chasers.
Looks the value in the race as the current third pick in the market and will likely start shorter.
Suggested Bet: Well Grounded win at $4.2
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 3, 8
Sandown park race 8
Taking a set against the odds-on favourite Devine Empress and siding with Idolize who draws out wide in box eight.
Think the wide box will actually suit this speedy bitch very well after what we saw in the lead-up this feature event final last week.
The Peter Presutto-trained greyhound charged to the front from box eight last start and bolted in.
She can do something very similar here should be able to cross Devine Empress who, despite probably being the best dog in the race, showed her vulnerability last start when jibbed the start ever so slightly.
We want to be with the dog in winning form who is jumping cleanly and that is Idolize.
Suggested Bet: Idolize win at $4.4
