Sandown Race 2 Horse Racing Betting Tips

VEGA MAGIC - Quality galloper attempting to become the first horse to win two straight Goodwood. Confirmed his elite status when a good thing beaten in last year’s The Everest, in what could be argued as now being the world’s premier sprint race. Would challenge anyone that tries to mount a case against him here of that effort, these are clearly much inferior sprinters. Not put off by the barrier, in fact I see it as our friend, hoping punters will be put off by the apparent awkward gate. I have Vega Magic getting in handy just off leaders with cover. Without sounding too arrogant, even luck and I expect him to win. For exotic players Thronum, Missrock and Flamberge will be others we will be throwing in the mix. Also suggest punters launch into the $15 that is available in this year’s The Everest as that price will be gone if he wins here, and he will get a slot.

Sandown Race 3 Horse Racing Betting Tips

GIRLS GOT SPIRIT - Girls Got Spirit is a very speedy Leon and Troy Corstens trained filly who has been freshened after a last start failure at Sandown Hillside course where she over-raced before being run down over 1000m. She won both other career starts showing strong speed and from a good gate here should be suited over the 900m. With Jackson Murphy claiming 2kg this daughter of Toorak Toff out of an Invincible Spirit mare can live up to her pedigree and be too quick for these Benchmark 65 horses.

WESTON - Weston has been through a stable change to Matt Dunn at Murwillumbah. He had a chequered career with Peter Robl taking eight starts to win his maiden and then struggled at two outings after resuming. Weston has been off the scene for 22 weeks but has benefited from three trials and showed improvement at his most recent when ridden by Clayton Gallagher. The 3kg claimer takes the ride and with blinkers back on the trainer would not put Weston first-up over 1400m unless a forward showing was expected. From gate five Weston should have the speed to be prominent and be hard to pass in the straight.

APOLOBOOM - Apoloboom disappointed last start on a soft track at Toowoomba but has been given a four-week break and should be much fresher for this Benchmark 75 encounter. At his previous outing in this class he was run down over 1300m by a good city class horse in Bergerac and prior to that won first up at Doomben when resuming from a bleeding attack. With Jackson Murphy’s claim he carries 59.5kg but has proven himself in this class previously. From gate six, Apoloboom should get a good run throughout and be hard to run down.

WILL’S BID - Here is a horse that has seriously lost his way. A half-brother to Starspangledbanner by Fastnet Rock, he was sold for $800,000 at the Gold Coast Magic Millions sale in 2016 and entered the Hayes-Dabernig yard where he won a Geelong Maiden on debut. Clearly, they thought something of him because his next four runs were in group races in Victoria and South Australia. Will’s Bid failed in those and after resuming and delivering two poor performances in restricted class was moved on to Bjorn Baker in Sydney. He placed when favourite at Goulburn but followed up with an ordinary effort at Hawkesbury and now finds himself on the Gold Coast with Michael Costa for whom he has had one good trial. A $12,000 class one over 1200m at Beaudesert is serious fall from grace but with Scott Galloway up he can begin the long trek back to respectability.
