Sandown Saturday Preview - 08/12/2018



ZANZA looks to have good chance in the Core Spreads “National Hunt” Novices Hurdle. Richard Johnson rides the Philip Hobbs top-weight.

The four-year-old won over this distance in his second start at Chepstow just over a fortnight ago.

That was a taking performance when winning by 12 lengths and he takes tall the beating based on the little form here is to go on.



The Elmbridge Mares Handicap Hurdle can see JUBILYLMPICS improve on his first run of the season and win in the hands of Harry Cobden.

The six-year-old was in decent form throughout the summer and there is no doubt his return run was disappointing.

Has raced in a far higher grade than this and should make presence felt if fully fit.


Loose Chips

The Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle see’s ten runners go to post and we can see LOOSE CHIPS being first horse home.

The veteran is now twelve-years-old but the manner of his victory here in November shows he retains plenty of ability.

There are some interesting sorts opposing but the selection knows how to win races of this class and can win in the hands of Paul O’Brien.



LALOR can confirm favouritism in the Henry VII Novices Chase. The Grade One has seen some famous winners over the years and this six-year-old can add his name to the list.

His seasonal reappearance was an impressive victory at Grade Two level and he finished off last season by winning an Aintree Grade One.

Whilst likely to be odds-on it is easy to see why as no horse has anything close to the form that the selection has displayed.



The next race is a Listed race in the shape of the Jumeirah Hotels And Resorts December Handicap Hurdle. Whilst TROTTERDOWN is upped in grade this front-runner is in fine form and could be hard to pass.

He has won twice from his two starts this season and last time out was a career best performance.

Daniel Hiskett takes off a valuable 5lb and it could make all the difference.


Saint Calvados

The penultimate race of the day is the Betfair Tingle Creek Chase (Grade 1). Altior will take a large chunk of the market in this feature race and we think SAINT CALVADOS is where the value is at.

The Harry Whittington runner has won four of his last five runs including an emphatic win in a Grade 2 at Warwick in February.

Made a pleasing return when winning at Naas and still heading in the right direction. A win here will set up an exciting season for the five-year-old.



The finale is the Betfair London National Handicap Chase. EXITAS is likely to be at the top end of the market and it is easy to see why.

The horse is ultra-consistent and has not been outside of the top four in his nine runs since August.

Found Beat That too much to handle when giving away weight last time out but still looks on a handy mark and should go well.
