Sandown R3 Vale Kalashani Lad (Bm64) 1400m


#6 Hypeman - $3.30

#3 Arizona Activist - $4.40

#2 Blown Away - $6.50

#5 Kirin - $5.00

BEST BET - #6 - Hypeman

He's shown he has the ability to be a serious contender and with a bit more luck and a better trip, he’s got a real shot at taking this one. Previously, 1st of 8 at Cranbourne Mdn on May 3, 2024 over 1300m, behind Hypeman (59.5kg) with 59.5kg at $1.50.

THE DANGER - #3 - Arizona Activist

In its last race, Arizona Activist was 4th at Sandown-Hillside on May 15 over 1300m, just 3.5 lengths behind Nuts 'N' Bolts (60.5kg) with 56kg at $8.50. This should be another race where I think it can potentially improve and get over the field. Previously, 1st of 12 at Sale BM58 on April 23, 2024 over 1200m, behind Arizona Activist (60.5kg) with 60.5kg at $2.40.

VALUE BET - #2 - Blown Away

Last start, beat Ersa (59kg) at Ballarat over 1400m at the starting price of $14.00. That was a good win and I like Blown Away on Wednesday too, especially with Declan Bates on board from barrier 3. Before that, Blown Away finished first at Bendigo in a Barrier Trial-Open on April 23, 2024 over 1000m, winning by 1.0L and beating Suprendre carrying at .

Sandown R6 Tobin Brothers Celebrating Lives (Bm70) 1600m


#1 Binding - $5.00

#3 She's A Con - $6.50

#10 Mere Fancy - $8.50

#6 Pitchanun - $7.00

BEST BET - #1 - Binding

Resuming on Wednesday. Previously, it finished 5th of 10 at Doomben in a Cls 5 on February 28, 2024 over 1640m, 1.9 lengths behind Goldeel (54.5kg). Previously, 4th of 10 at Eagle Farm Cls 6 on February 17, 2024 over 1600m, behind Ostermeier (54.5kg) with 54kg at $6.00. But I think it can improve here in an open race.

THE DANGER - #3 - She's A Con

On May 15 at Sandown-Hillside in a BM70 over 1300m, She's A Con started slow and finished 5th out of 12, while carrying 59kg at $41.00 odds. Previously, 11 of 13 at Flemington Open on November 11, 2023 over 2000m, behind Deny Knowledge (57kg) with 56kg at $31.00. However, it should improve in this one.

VALUE BET - #10 - Mere Fancy

Last race was a 3rd place finish at Cranbourne over 1600m Previously, 2nd of 8 at Ballarat BM64 on April 16, 2024 over 1500m, behind King's Capital (59.5kg) with 58.5kg at $11.00. Offers some value odds for sure.

Sandown R8 Sportsbet Same Race Multi (Bm70) 1000m


#7 Oak Hill - $2.80

#13 Gracie's Rain - $5.00

#10 Kiko - $7.00

#5 Artistic Genius - $11.00

BEST BET - #7 - Oak Hill

Last time out, it had a perfect run and won, looking much fitter. This horse knows how to bring the heat and last time out at Sandown-Hillside, he showed us exactly what he's made of. With Damian Lane in the saddle, he's a force to be reckoned with and could very well take the win again. Before that, Oak Hill finished first at Caulfield in a BM70 on December 16, 2023 over 1200m, winning by 4.2L and beating Altruist (54kg) carrying 57kg at $5.00.

THE DANGER - #13 - Gracie's Rain

Last start, he tried hard but was outgunned, finishing 4th of 7 at Sandown-Hillside in a BM64 over 1000m, 0.8 lengths behind Written Bligh (59kg) with 58kg at $8. I expect him to finish strong and should offer good value odds for punters on Saturday. Previously, 1st of 7 at Bendigo Mdn on November 28, 2023 over 1000m, behind Gracie's Rain (56kg) with 56kg at $4.40.

VALUE BET - #10 - Kiko

Last start, beat Jewel Bay (59.5kg) at Sandown-Hillside over 1000m at the starting price of $7.00. That was a good win and I like Kiko on Wednesday too, especially with Craig Williams on board from barrier 9. Before that, Kiko finished first at Sandown-Lakeside in a Cls 1 on February 21, 2024 over 1200m, winning by 3.0L and beating Kahhof (59kg) carrying 57.5kg at $5.50.

Jockey Of The Day - Jamie Kah

Jamie has 2 runners that I like the look of on Wednesday. Fontaine Rouge in Race 1 should get the win. While in R6, Binding gives you some value odds.

R1 - Fontaine Rouge - $1.85
R6 - Binding - $5

Multi Tips For Sandown

On a day filled with fierce competition and horses finely tuned for the races, it's wise to approach multi betting with caution. I've leaned towards horses with favourable barriers, decent weights and in-form jockeys. These factors can often make a real difference in such tightly contested races. Check out my multi of the day below for an exciting bet to follow throughout race day!

Betting Sites Bonuses and Promotions

Promotions are traditionally the primary way for punters to create an edge over the bookies, as they can save your cash when your runner fails to win, in the instance of Unibet they often offer 2nd and 3rd money back in bonus bets for a selection of races on the midweek and Provincial racing days. Coupled with their generous odds I have to put them as the top bookie promotion wise at the moment for Australian racing. 

If you are looking for the best promotions this week for Wednesday's racing I wouldn’t look past Unibet, often they offer odds boosts in addition to the money back promotions. Don’t forget to check your account as well for personal offers. 

Promotions often change so make sure you sign up at to see what promotions are applicable to you and you may even be surprised to find some promotions that weren’t mentioned here!
