WITH The Meadows racing on Thursday night Sandown Park assumes Saturday night’s timeslot with a competitive 12-event card.

Pretty keen on a talented up-and-comer in the first which I think can get punters off on the right note. 

FIELDS AND FORM SANDOWN SATURDAY

Best Bets

Race 1 Number 2 BOP BOP

Makes Sandown debut for the powerful Jamie and Brooke Ennis kennel. Showing ability at the provincials in good company and gets a great draw for his first city start. Strikes a winnable low-grade race here and expecting a forward showing.

Race 4 Number 4 GYPSY WYONG

Progressive middle-distance type chasing four wins on the bounce. Been mightily impressive in recent efforts with brilliant beginnings and comes into this still on the way up. Vacant draw to her inside is an advantage also. 

Race 7 Number 2 WHISTLING BULLET

Runs into an in-form Aston Amigo drawn the rails but at the better value give Whistling Bullet a great chance of scoring. Been racing in tougher grade and while she hasn’t won for a while has some terrific runner-up efforts in her form to some very smart types. Can burn early. Ready to strike here.

Best Value

Race 6 Number 2 WHATEVER I SAY

If she can replicate what she can trial expecting she runs a big race here. Broke the first split record in recent 725m engagement at The Meadows and while her form since has been below her best prepared to give her another chance. On her night can begin brilliantly and is well up to giving this field plenty to catch.
