Sandown Tips June 15

Race 1 - 11:50AM Sportsbet Set A Deposit Limit Handicap Tips (1000m)

Best: 5. Cora Lynn. With race experience under the belt and with a subsequent tick-over trial suggesting that she's come on from her debut, Cora Lynn can go one better here.

The Ciaron Maher-trained filly was held-up from the 500m to the 200m over this track/trip on May 15 and that proved costly against Husk, who she faces again on Saturday.

With a little weight swing in her favour on that key rival and with the ability to punch up a little closer this time around, natural improvement can see her progress at start two.
Value: 6. Supercilious. It was an even performance on debut via the Blue Diamond Prelude (fillies), with that Group 2 producing Hayasugi (Blue Diamond winner).

Supercilious was spelled after that February 10 event and coming back to 1000m fresh to begin her winter campaign, she might be able to get more favours closer to the speed.

There seems to be genuine intent for this first-up assignment, with the filly finishing second in a May 17 jump-out at Flemington before taking out her last workout on May 31.

Race 2 - 12:25PM ive > Handicap Tips (1400m)

Best: 6. Enna's Dream. Although she's coming out of a three-year-old fillies race here on May 25, there was arguably a little more depth to that second-up contest.

A flying and hard-fit Miss Aria proved too slick in that seven furlong affair, whereas Enna's Dream was a little one-paced when they sprinted, but she still stuck on.

While there was a flashing light on her after the encouraging 1100m Caulfield return, she was 1100m to 1400m via that last outing, so the filly may have needed that.

Value: 9. Warakurna. This is interesting placement, with Warakurna coming to a Saturday metro three-year-old event after breaking through at start three over the Swan Hill Carnival.

That maiden win came only eight days ago, having showed promise in prior efforts and the beaten margin flattered her rivals on June 7, as he was wayward in run home.

This could be the city trip away to bring him on for his next campaign, however, the blinkers go on a country-trained galloper who looks to have above average ability.

Race 3 - 1:00PM Vale Fr Brendan Dillon Tips (1400m)

Best: 16. Name Dropper. The son of Tavistock sat on speed to record a comfortable all-the-way triumph at Eagle Farm on debut last August before being tipped out.

Name Dropper has clearly had his fair share of issues, given he's a rising five-year-old, but he has class and the gelding should be able to land on the speed from gate six.

He looks forward enough to produce fresh, having completed three nice jump-out's ahead of Saturday's resumption and he'll be suited rolling along on the big Sandown circuit.

Value: 11. Russian Meteor. He got away with it on ability over his first few campaigns, having recorded back-to-back wins early in the season at Pakenham before coming to town.

After completing four runs in his first prep, Russian Meteor had just two outings over a short autumn, so there will be some residual fitness and he was sharp in a recent jump-out win.

He's one of the real X-Factor horses of this field and if the penny is finally dropped, then he could easily take this out before progressing to better races over winter.

Race 4 - 1:35PM Evergreen Turf Handicap Tips (1300m)

Best: 5. Batrana. Despite completing strong lead-up work, there wasn't a great deal of intent first-up on June 1, where the wide barrier forced a cold ride at Caulfield.

Batrana recovered well after being awkwardly placed on heels and then after being held-up at key stages in the strike, the filly found the line for third when eventually getting clear.

Her last win was over this 1400m journey in October before contesting a hot form race at Flemington and prior to that Ballarat win, she was good without luck over this track/trip.
Value: 2. Flying Fizz. The daughter of Street Boss was terrific without luck on return over the Warrnambool Carnival when coming from from back and wide, which was against the pattern.

Off that fresh outing, Flying Fizz looked hard to beat at Flemington seconbd-up, but she was ultimately a run short there when finishing third over the seven furlongs.

Backing up seven days later on May 25 was a little surprising being so early in the prep and there was merit to that May 25 attempt, where she covered ground in sixth-of-eleven finish.

Race 5 - 2:10PM Sportsbet Fast Form Handicap Tips (1600m)

Best: 13. Roadie. Saturday's Sandown Hillside program gets very difficult from Race 5 onwards and arguably the most open of them is this mares BM74.

This is a big step up for Roadie, hence her big price, however, the lightly raced four-year-old hasn't done much wrong and she's one of the few in this line-up who might have upside.

She overcome trouble to win at Ballarat last start, where she appreciated the rise in trip and given she's hard-fit/in-form, this metro race is worth a shot at the stumps.

Value: 2. Chandon Burj. She's close to 20/1 in the early markets, while given she draws out and rises in weight second-up, the mare could start even longer at the jump.

A ninth-of-ten finish first-up over this track/trip doesn't read well, although that was in a stronger affair and it's worth taking a look at her work past the post in that race.

Along with her BM78 form from last campaign standing out for a race like this, a Seymour Cup second and Inglis Bracelet third at Flemington are also decent references.

Race 6 - 2:45PM Quayclean Handicap Tips (1600m)

Best: 9. Concorde. This McEvoy-trained import is on Australian debut and he had built a tidy European record, having won four-from-ten in the eight to ten furlongs range.

While the betting could tell the story, you don't see many imports look so forward ahead of a Down Under debut, with Concorde arriving off two nice jump-outs.

He settled well and travelled on the speed comfortably in both May hit-outs, with the latest workout resulting in a heat win and he finds a weak race to kick-off in.

Value: 7. Crackerjack Prince. While he's a double figure quote, the gelding is ticking over as well as anything in this BM78 and he's not far off a peaking now third-up.

Crackerjack Prince somewhat put the writing on the wall first-up when getting home for third at Caulfield and Georgie Get Mad has since franked that form in stronger company.

The six-year-old loomed ominously second-up on June 2 before just peaking a little late, but he'll strip fitter from that second-up run and winkers go back on here.

Race 7 - 3:25PM LockettLED.au Handicap Tips (1000m)

Best: 5. Direct. A case could be made for most of these sprinters and the market reflects how open of a race this is, with a $5 fav and only four runners at single figure quotes.

At $20+, Direct is one of the outsiders of the field, a galloper who is on stable debut for Dan McCarthy and his June 3 Wangaratta was a terrific piece of work.

He looked a genuine stakes class sprinter early days before mixing his form, although the first two runs of his last campaign were okay and a Listed third was among those.

Value: 7. Magic Max. He's also accepted at Murray Bridge and while the gelding isn't the easiest horse to catch, he's more than capable of measuring up here.

When everything pans out for Magic Max, he's a dangerous sprinter with a big finish and sitting off them in a big field over the Sandown 1000m, he could launch late.

Moonee Valley was strange placement in his last Melbourne visit, but he saluted at Caulfield as a two-year-old and he should have won on that same circuit a year later.

Race 8 - 4:05PM Tile Importer Handicap Tips (1400m)

Best: 2. Showmanship. Despite being a rising nine-year-old, Showmanship is set for just start 14 on Saturday and that alone shows the problems he's had over the journey.

Ability hasn't been one of those issues, however, with the Bob Peters runner winning eight from 13 attempts and over seven furlongs, the gelding has won four-from-five.

His only 1400m miss was as second fav in the 2022 Group 1 Rupert Clarke and while there's been a gap since his Wangoom return, he was good there against the pattern.
Value: 10. Pascero. This Busuttin & Young-trained galloper has been good to us, having saluted at 30/1 at Randwick last winter and he defeated a handy Phearson in the process.

Even though he's been mostly consistently since then, Pascero is still underrated and that was evident via his triumph over the Melbourne Cup Carnival when winning at 50/1.

The son of Pierro saluted two starts when backed at a double figure quote and his two jump-outs ahead of Saturday's resumption indicate that he's ready to go.

Race 9 - 4:35PM Sportsbet Race Replays Handicap Tips (1800m)

Best: 12. Wyclif. Yet another tricky rice on this card is the last and one of many chances here is Wyclif, with each-way odds available for the Ciaron Maher-trained galloper.

After contesting the Hobart Cup and Launceston Cup over the Tasmanian Carnival, he was expected to need the first-up outing at Caulfield and he was luckless there.

He arguably wins that June 1 event with clear room in the straight, while with decent second-up stats and the extra 200m suiting, Wyclif should go close if he holds his form.

Value: 17. Deepstrike. The emergency of the field comes is in the mix should he gain a start, with Deepstrike unsuited via his second-up showing over this track/trip.

In a sit-sprint what was dictated by Pudding, his May 25 run was better than it reads, as he got home from the rear and under the circumstances, he couldn't have done much more.

1800m is his sweet spot, with three victories recorded at this distance and over the nine furlongs at Sandown, he has two wins and a second from five attempts.
