The sun is finally out as we look ahead to a lovely day of racing at Sandown.
Scratchings have decimated the early races but there is still some value to be found.
sandown race 4
Terrific last start winner at Geelong, showing the kind of engine that will appreciate the step up to 1600m.
The barrier shouldn’t be an issue considering it’s been trained under the master tutelage of Patrick Payne.
Look for Seonee to be powering towards the line late.
Suggested Bet: Seonee win at $4.60
sandown race 5
#5 ears the barman
He moves up in class, but the form is undeniable. Two impressive wins in Bendigo and then Cranbourne, both on heavy tracks, demonstrate the credentials here.
Not much to separate this field, but easily the best value pick
Suggested Bet: Ears The Barman at $5.50
sandown race 7
#3 port louis
One of the all-time bookie’s favourites, finally breaking its maiden on July 4.
Four weeks freshen up after another excuse run at Ballarat.
He always seems to find one better in the run, but I think today could be different. Very happy to be on it at the price.
Suggested Bet: Port Louis at $7.00
