Sandown Friday Preview - 05/07/2019

1:50 - Beyond Equal

Beyond Equal kicks off our selections in the Sandown opener - the Sandown Park Supports Racing Staff Week Handicap over the flying five furlongs.

The four-year-old scored well at Bath just nine days ago and can go well again off the same mark.

He won four times last year; including a quick-fire brace in May at Haydock and Salisbury and looks very much back in the game for trainer Stuart Kittow.

Acts best on good ground.

2:20 - Makyon

Makyon is an interesting runner dropped to five furlongs for one of Friday's feature races - the Listed Chasemore Farm Dragon Stakes.

This juvenile was an easy winner at Hamilton earlier on in the campaign, and then led for a long way in the Coventry at Royal Ascot.

When asked for maximum effort he was slightly impeded with the market principles coming to the fore, but should fair much better here in a lesser race over the minimum trip.

Ryan Moore jumps on for Mark Johnston, who is loving every minute of July so far.

2:55 - Riot

Riot looked a certain 'next time out winner' on the basis of his course and distance second here a few Fridays ago, and looks an obvious player in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Novice Stakes.

Son of Kingman, the two-year-old evaded chances of winning here in a maiden when running green in the closing stages, but travelled into the race very smoothly.

Preferred over the newcomers on the basis of his experience, and should definitely improve from the initial effort.

Major danger to all.

3:25 - Elarqam

The day's other highlight is the Listed Davies Insurance Services Gala Stakes, and Elarqam demands respect on the evidence of his rejuvenation this term.

Fourth in the Earl Sefton behind the likes of Zabeel Prince and Mustashry showed the juvenile promise was still there, and he followed that up with a decent display at Goodwood at this level.

Ran well when placing at Royal Ascot in the Wolferton, and looks an obvious chance in this race over ten furlongs - the same start for Saturday's Coral Eclipse.

Another Johnston contender.

4:00 - Badenscoth

Badenscoth is in excellent from for Dean Ivory, and can land the hat-trick here in the George Lindon-Travers Memorial Handicap - something he could not achieve at Wolverhampton back in May.

He won here last time out over Ed Dunlop's Global Art when fighting his way back to the front under Robert Winston, albeit on soft ground.

Needs to prove it on a much quicker surface but currently on a roll, and should not be quickly overlooked.

Shortlisted.

4:35 - Beer With The Boys

We certainly we will be having a 'beer with the boys' should this four-year-old come home in front in the Sequel Handicap over 1m6f.

This contest does require more on his 2018 form, but there is every possibility this nicely bred gelding will be better this year, and we are willing to take the chance.

Won on his final start of the season in October at Pontefract, and will be his first start going right-handed since a good third in a Maiden at Goodwood to two horses who have gone to become useful prospects.

Each way shot.

The final race on the card is the Coppafeel 10 Year Anniversary Handicap for Lady Amateur Riders over a mile, and the only horse of interest is Richard Spencer's Club Tropicana.

She opened her account at Yarmouth last time out just over a month ago, beating Lunar Deity - who also lines up here, by half-a-length.

Appears to have found his trip and grade now on the flat after a strange attempt over hurdles.

Remains unexposed on the turf, and well worth another go here with Gina Andrews taking the ride to secure a double for the horse.
