Today we have 2 races in focus at Sandown for backers and some possible lay selections for our 5F favs lay strategy which is running at a 72.22% SR and added almost 40% profit since selections started on the 14/07/2017 (See results section on the blog for full results to date)…….So for the 2 back bets we firstly look at the 1.50pm
Sandown 1.50 Show Stealer 8/1 generally available
Firstly she is a daughter of Showcasing who has an impressive 5 runs 4 wins 5 places under good to soft conditions with the other factors today, however the going has changed to good and if we look at class 3 events under these new conditions these figs are now 4 runs 1 win 4 places so still very solid.
The other interesting fact is that the horse in question is dropped to 5F for the first time so she has these favourable conditions and also dropped in class for the first time in 2 years so although her recent form may not look great 8088 in last 4 runs these where against much better class horses. She is very lightly raced with just the 14 runs and drawn well in 2 also. Martin Harley takes the ride and he has won twice for the trainer in 7 rides in handicaps. All in all a very solid profile for this race and at the odds a win bet is recommended.
Sandown 2.25 Purser 7/2 best odds
John Gosden excels in the Solario Stakes with an overall 4 runs 3 wins 3 place record and has won this race in the past with the likes of Kingman and Ravens Pass and clearly targets his better 2 yo at the race. This once raced bay won a 12 runner maiden at Newbury under Ryan Moore and clearly has a lot of improvement in him. Frankie takes the ride today and has a 31% SR for the trainer in listed / Group races in the last two years, Hopefully Purser can improve the already excellent record in this race for JG.
