Sandown Race 1 Horse Racing Betting Tips

THE DRAKE - I was off the mark tipping The Drake last start at Kembla however the John Sargent-trained three-year-old is worth another chance in the Walsh & Blair Lawyers Class 1 Showcase Handicap (1200m). The Drake set a solid speed out in front at Kembla and was no match for the likes of Siam and Pride Of Darci over the latter stages in a race that has the potential to develop into a solid form reference and I am still convinced there is a win or two in the son of Smart Missile. If we go back to his last run before spelling, we find The Drake impressively winning over the Gosford 1200m accounting for a subsequent metropolitan maiden winner in Montrachet. A repeat of that run would see The Drake go close to winning a country maiden.

CHILCOTIN - The 1.5kg claiming apprentice Chris Williams has the ride on the Ben Smith-trained Chilcotin which will be striving for back-to-back wins in the MRS Services Group Benchmark 60 Handicap (1750m). Chilcotin came from back in the field to win a benchmark 65 handicap over 1500m at Muswellbrook last start at his second run back from a 72-day break between races recording solid speed figures in the process. A winner at the 1750m journey it would be reasonable to assume there is still scope for improvement third-up at Muswellbrook on Friday stepping up in distance. In with a winnable weight after Williams’ claim, there is nothing to suggest Chilcotin cannot win again.

BOYER - don’t mind backing 4kg apprentices on speed horses and that’s the case with Boyer which has Qin Yong in the saddle when the three-year-old graduates out of maiden company in the BHP Mt Arthur Coal Benchmark 55 Handicap (1280m). Apprenticed to Boyer’s trainer Brad Widdup, Qin Yong was the successful rider when the three-year-old led all the way to impressively win his maiden at Canberra last start. Originally allotted 61kg, the 4kg claim for Qin Jong will give Bower every chance for a repeat performance on Friday.

MYPRAYER - After finishing in the placings in three provincial races, Myprayer gets the chance to record his first career win in the NSW Racehorse Owners Association Maiden Showcase Handicap (1400m). Myprayer did a few things wrong when runner-up at Kembla resuming from a 62-day let-up last start. A three-year-old son of Keep The Faith, Myprayer raced ungenerously and was forced to cover ground in the run before hitting the line solidly over the 1300m journey. Counting on Tye Angland to get the best out of the gelding launching from barrier one back to a country maiden.

KING HEWITT - Brenton Avdulla rides two of our specials commencing with the Kim Waugh-trained King Hewitt who will be chasing a second career win at just his fourth race start when he lines up in the HMA Power Generation Class 1 Handicap (1600m). An impressive maiden winner on debut at Newcastle before finishing a length fourth at the same track when stepped up to 1400m in class one company at his second outing, King Hewitt had no luck over the Wyong 1600m last start when second to the promising Penske. After racing on the speed in his first two runs, King Hewitt was forced to settle at the back of the field after copping a bump shortly after the start settling over six-lengths from the leader at the 800m and was still giving the leader five-lengths start straightening at Wyong before whittling down the margin to 1-1/2 lengths at the finish. Expect King Hewitt to settle in the first three of four on Thursday launching from barrier four and if that’s the case he will take a power of beating.
