Sandown Tips for August 18

Ladbrokes Blended Multi Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Sandown Best Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Veranskova

He is a big ungainly galloper that still does not know how to race, but there is a massive motor under the bonnet and it is just a matter of time before the penny drops.

Veranskova was slow away at Sale last start and just got himself into a real awkward position for a big horse, racing in restricted room.

Once out he hit the line sweetly, with a big 'follow me next start' sign above his head and now getting to the bigger track of Sandown, this circuit should suit him down to the ground.

Ladbrokes Same Race Multi Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Sandown Value Bet - Race 6 No. 7 The Awesome Son

I feel that there is too much of a price differentiation between him and the favourite Aquileon, seeing that that this gelding has very good form while the form around the favourite is questionable.

The Awesome Son did not handle the heavy track at Moe last start but still won, chasing hard from the 600m home while the form around Seiners Express from two back reads very well for this race.

Aquileon's form from his maiden win has not stood up and although he was good last time out, this superbly bred four-year-old is the one who will really improve back to some firmer footing.

Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Handicap Tips (Race7)

Sandown Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Worsfold

Worsfold was a good thing beaten last start at Sale, racing over heels for the majority of the straight to then only miss Heir To The Throne by a short half head, with that runner a subsequent Metro winner.

He comes back 115m to the 1500m and although he is probably a better horse over the mile, the turn-of-foot that he has shown this prep is nothing short of outstanding.

The market should find Worsfold off that last outing and if so, expect him to be back winning which is what he does best.
