Best bets and tips from across the card of greyhound racing at Sandown on Thursday night.
Plenty of value and money to be made.
sandown race 1
#3 sin city angel
Sandown form meets country form in this race.
Sin City Angel brings in some solid runs at Sandown, which would be right up to the mark in this race from a winning perspective, while Triumph, who comes up shorter in the market, brings in a slightly questionable effort at Ballarat.
I am going with the city form.
Suggested Bet: Sin City Angel win at $2.80
Confidence Rating: 7/10
sandown race 2
#6 white whale
White Whale looks the speediest beginner in this race, which will hold him in good stead.
A handful of these runners will be looking for further than 525 metres, so he can gain the early ascendancy and control this race.
Suggested Bet: White Whale win at $4.60
Confidence Rating: 8/10
sandown race 3
#5 alfie moon
This is a drop in grade for Alfie Moon who has been going along well over the last two months despite not winning.
If we look back at his G5 run on June 2, he ran a 34.44 which is more than good enough to win this race.
Suggested Bet: Alfie Moon win at $2.40
Confidence Rating: 8.5/10
sandown race 5
#6 aston ulysses
Backing Aston Ulysses based on his wide-ish draw.
There looks as though there could be a bit of trouble down on the inside, and staying out wide might be the best option for this gun chaser.
In great form and needs a bit of luck early.
Suggested Bet: Aston Ulysses win at $4.40
Confidence Rating: 4.5/10
sandown race 8
#8 nikoli bale
He contended against some serious dogs at his last few starts and found himself coming into this off a vital 515-metre win at Sandown last week.
Drawing the pink should see him skip along and cross with his early speed.
The one to beat should he hit the first bend in front.
Suggested Bet: Nikoli Bale win at $3.60
Confidence Rating: 6/10
sandown race 10
#6 gold skulltula
I am taking a set against Piscopo Bale and going with Gold Skulltula, who has been zipping around Traralgon over 395 metres to prepare him for a big run in town.
He has the early toe to lead this field over the longer distance, and if he can get an easy time of it in the middle stages, he will leave enough energy to hold on late.
Suggested Bet: Gold Skulltula win at $4.60
Confidence Rating: 5/10
