Wednesday Racing Tips - Sandown Racecourse 10/07/2024

Sandown Racecourse 10/07/2024

Sandown R5 Ive > (Bm78) 2100m


#11 Preferential - $4.40

#9 Brave Miss - $4.60

#10 She's A Con - $7.00

#2 Smokin' Princess - $5.00

BEST BET - #11 - Preferential

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 Geelong, he showed us exactly what he's made of. With Blake Shinn in the saddle, he's a force to be reckoned with and could very well take the win again.

THE DANGER - #9 - Brave Miss

In his last race on June 26 at Sale, he surged to the front, winning by 0.1 lengths. He carried 59kg and managed to beat Korobeiniki (59.5kg), which was quite impressive, especially at $5.00 odds. So, it's definitely in top form right now. In winning form, don't look past it.

VALUE BET - #10 - She's A Con

Last time this horse hit the track, She's A Con put in a better effort, and that's something to take note of for Wednesday's race. With Damian Lane riding, you know that She's A Con has got a jockey who can handle business.

Sandown R7 Thoroughbred Club Of Australia (Bm78) 1200m


#5 The Open - $4.20

#7 Keitel - $8.50

#3 Home Rule - $21.00

#8 Bews - $5.50

BEST BET - #5 - The Open

In its last race, The Open was 4th at Caulfield on June 29 over 1200m, just 1.3 lengths behind Legio Ten (56.5kg). This should be another race where I think it can potentially improve and get over the field. Rates a terrific each-way play, I think.

THE DANGER - #7 - Keitel

Just finished behind the places in it's last start, finishing 4th at 13 on June 22. So I think it can improve after that run and should be fitter here. First-up form looks good.

VALUE BET - #3 - Home Rule

Last start, Home Rule was 8th of 14 at Sandown-Hillside on June 15 over 1000m on a soft track, 4.0 lengths behind Mrs Chrissie (54kg) with 58kg at $26.00. But it should improve here. Loves the distance and I hope that continues over the 1200m.

Sandown R8 Sportsbet Race Replays (Bm70) 1600m


#10 Name Dropper - $4.00

#15 Tajanis - $8.50

#4 Big Brew - $10.00

#9 Spare Coin - $10.00

BEST BET - #10 - Name Dropper

In his last race on June 15 at Sandown-Hillside, he surged to the front, winning by 0.2 lengths. He carried 56.5kg and managed to beat Snappy Secret (60kg), which was quite impressive, especially at $7.00 odds. So, it's definitely in top form right now. Racing well at the moment, so I like its chances.

THE DANGER - #15 - Tajanis

Resuming on Wednesday. In his last race on September 21 at G B - Great Yarmouth, he surged to the front, winning by 2.3 lengths. He carried 56kg and managed to beat Sailing On (56kg), which was quite impressive, especially at $5.50 odds. So, it's definitely in top form right now.

VALUE BET - #4 - Big Brew

On June 15 at Sandown-Hillside in a BM78 over 1600m, Big Brew started slow and finished 9th out of 12, while carrying 57kg at $18.00 odds. But it could run a place if things goes its way.

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 Australian betting sites, 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. 

Betting sites 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!
