Sandown Tips for August 1


Crisp Steeplechase Tips (Race 1)

Sandown Best Bet - Race 1 No. 5 Social Element

This guys has gone from strength to strength at each run this prep, winning his last three races including two back by 30 lengths and last start in this quality of race by nine lengths.

He has looked just about unstoppable but now goes up 2.5kg in weight which may help bring him back to the field a little bit. 

I’m saying this, there is nothing stopping him from continuing this vein of form as Flying Agent is a touch off of his top at the moment and he smashed Ablaze last start, so what’s to say he doesn’t go on again and take out another feature steeple?

Grand National Hurdle Tips (Race 5)

Sandown Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Saunter Boy 

The key here is who Steve Pateman has chosen to ride between the two favourites, and he has gone with the flashy grey gelding Saunter Boy who he won on two races back by seven lengths at Warrnambool.

He was then seen contesting the Flemington Cup, placing third so there is no doubting his flat ability between jumps, but what I love is that Pateman has always said this horse will he at his best when racing at Sandown.

He finally gets to his target race, the Grand National Hurdle at Sandown where he has the bug flat track and just ideal conditions for him to be going on and proving and the best hurdler of the jumps season.

Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Sandown Value Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Unfair Dismissal

This galloper does not win out of turn, but he always is honest and was again good last start when running second to Barbie’s Fox who has Lindhout form.

The son of All Too Hard rolls forward naturally and draws low so he won’t be doing any work in the run with 1.5kg claimed Teo Nugent in the saddle.

He handles all track conditions, loves Sandown, gets over the mile and is nicely in at the weights thanks to the claim, so at better than $3 the place, that is most definitely a bet in this event.
