Leg 1 – Sandown Park – Race 8: Andiamo Neo To Place $2.20
Andiamo Neo returned to form with a strong 26.06 Warragul win on Tuesday and with some luck early today he should be able to settle in a prominent position and a top three finish is on the cards. He has only won the one race from 18 tries here but he has recorded a further seven placings and he does appear to be dropping in class. He is currently $7.50 with Bet365 for the win which is great value, but I think the place option is much safer and well over the odds.
Leg 2 – Sandown Park – Race 10: He’s Ma Bro To Place (Top Two Finish Required) $1.67
He’s Ma Bro has been racing in great form recently at Cranbourne and he appears suited to this journey. Last time out he produced a very strong finish when winning at Cranbourne in a smart 30.31 and with a clear passage in the first 50m tonight he should take it right up to the favourite. He is probably better suited to a wider draw but he and the favourite appear to have quite a bit on their rivals.
Leg 3 – Sale – Race 7: One Cup Short To Place $2.50
One Cup Short is a lot better than her recent form suggests and she should atone for her luckless effort here last week when she hit the deck after settling in a threatening position. Tonight’s event is a lot weaker depth wise and I’m expecting the speedy Tiger Whelan to carve up the inside division in the early stages. She is great value at $9 for the win with Bet365, but the $2.50 for the place appears to be a steal and she should add great value to the multi.
Multi Price = $9.18 with Bet365.
