Sandown Preview - 05/01/2019

12:15 - Torpillo

The first race of the day at Sandown Park is the Unibet Juvenile Hurdle and in the Class 3 over 2 miles we have gone for the Nigel Twiston-Davies trained Torpillo.

This bright four year old for the Munir and Souede partnership looks to hold a lot of potential off the back of his two previous runs and he is still unbeaten.

His first run came in a three runner field in France in what was like a schooling session. From there he came over to England and on his debut beat five other runners over course and distance with ease in a Class 2.

If replicating this performance even with a slight penalty he will be one to watch for the future and he will extend his unbeaten run to three races.

12:45 - Capeland

The second race of the day at Sandown Park is the Unibet Handicap Chase and in the Class 2 over 1 mile 7 1/2 furlongs we have gone for the inform Paul Nicholls trained Capeland.

This seven year old has been in stellar form this season and showed how consistent he can be in these types of races ahving figures of 221121 in his last six runs, showing he knows how to win.

Because he has won three out of his last four races he has been given a seven pound penalty and if this doesn't affect him too much, he is very much the one to beat.

13:20 - Darius Des Bois

The third race of the day at Sandown Park is the 32Red Handicap Chase and in the Class 3 over 2 miles 4 furlongs we have gone for the Nicky Henderson trained Darius Des Bois.

This six year old for the Sullivan Bloodstock Limited owners in its last few runs has started to really sort himself when it comes to jumping and learning from each run having figures of 122.

His first run this season was a decent second in a Class 3 contest at Ludlow and if building of that will be sure to be in the frame come Saturday. Sean Bowen rides for Henderson and he has only done this three times this season and could work to be a decent partnership.

13:50 - Laurina (No Bet Advised)

The next race of the day at Sandown Park is the Unibet Mares' Listed Hurdle and in this contest over 2 miles 3 1/2 furlongs we have gone for the Willie Mullins trained Laurina.

In this race we are advising no bet but if you fancy having a go we suggest that you pair this mare up with another selection as it is predicted to be highly odds on, or you can bet on it to win by a certain amount of lengths.

This superstar for the Mullins yard is one of the most eagerly anticipated horses of the year to be unleashed after last year going unbeaten and putting some superb performances in at the Cheltenham Festival and in her Grade 1 winning spectacle at Fairyhouse.

She should romp home tomorrow in this Listed contest which only see's three other runners alongside her and it will be good to see how goos she can be this season.

14:25 - Rathill

The next race of the day at Sandown Park is the feature of the day at Sandown with the Grade 1 Tolworth Novices Hurdle over 2 miles and we have gone for the Nicky Henderson trained Rathill.

A lot of McManus horses were entered into this race originally and were from the Henderson yard but this is the only one to stay in the contest meaning this must be there best chance and it has to be a strong contender.He is the current market leader at 6/5 and he has only raced twice in his career.

He came second on his debut point to point in Ireland and since then went to Newbury and beat a 20 runner field to comfortably land a Class 4.This Grade 1 is a huge step up but he offers a lot of potential and could turn into a hurdling superstar.

15:00 - Rock Gone & Buywise

The penultimate race of the day at Sandown Park is the Unibet Veteran's Handicap Chase and in this contest over 3 miles we have gone for two horses in a race with such a big field.

Firstly Rock Gone for Dr Richard Newland has a great chance to land this Class 2 Handicap after putting in a really strong seasonal debut which was the first time we have seen him for a year. He came a good second over course and distance and if matching that won't be far away again.

Our next tip is the 12 year old Buywise for Evan Williams won this race last year off exactly the same mark. He did well when hurdling last time out but will need to step up a lot back over fences, each way claims.

15:35 - Demoplis

The last race of the day at Sandown Park is the 32Red.com Handicap Hurdle and in this contest over 2 miles we have gone for the Phillip Hobbs trained Demopolis.

The J P McManus owned five year old holds a lot of potential for this yard and has only ran twice in his career giving bright performances on both occasions.

On his first start in France he beat a field of 13 and looked a really exciting prospect, since then he has moved to England and came second at Haydock behind a useful type.

If learning from his mistakes and being able to stay that bit further he could b a really smart hurdler and dangerous at a nice price in the last race of the day.
