Sandown Tips for December 23
Thoroughbred Club Handicap Tips (Race 4)
Sandown Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Typhoon Harmony
He prevailed prevailed last start on the Hillside track when beating the smart Holster and from gate five, should have no trouble landing straight on the speed once more.
A son of Written Tycoon and out of a daughter to three-time Group One winner Special Harmony, this family have generally handled a little bit of sting out of the ground, so a Soft track should be fine if it starts in that range.
The form has stood-up well from his debut tilt at Moe on November 19 with that winner Miss Albania going straight to a Benchmark 70 at Moonee Valley and scoring by two lengths.
Typhoon Harmony is certainly the most progressive horse in the race and when the Gelagotis boys are on fire, they can be worth sticking with.

Ladbrokes Odds Boost Handicap Tips (Race 7)
Sandown Value Bet - Race 7 No. 18 Sky Hero
He can mix his form, but I feel that the damp surface brings him right back into the race after proving a little flat last start when up in grade.
Two starts back, Sky Hero Finsihed second at Moe on a good surface over this trip behind Yenhaab who he now gets a 2.5kg weight swing on and beat home Alexander Hamilton in the process, a subsequent winner.
This is clearly a tougher contest but he is a reasonable staying prospect and for now, the drop back in trip to 2100m looks suitable.
Certainly prepared to forgive this four-year-old on that effort and with Jye McNeil taking the ride on Wednesday, he warrants some thought at a huge price.
Ladbrokes Handicap Tips (Race 8)
Sandown Best Bet - Race 8 No. 13 Zoushack
Lane in the last is now becoming the Victorian version of Pike in the last, with anything he is putting his leg over seemingly gaining a few lengths at present.
This gelding is clearly more effective with a bit of juice in the ground as both career wins have come on soft tracks and he has placed on a heavy deck.
The first-up run was very good at Moonee Valley where he sat on the speed and kept finding, only to be beaten a half-length on the line by Heyington Station and Dune Field.
He meets Dune Field again here, but second-up and on a surface with more give in it, it's advantage to Zoushack at Sandown on Wednesday.
