Sandown Best Bet: Tuvalu
The Lindsey Smith-trained Tuvalu looks well placed to break a string of runner-up performances having chased home the impressive I’m Thunderstruck in his past two starts. After settling three wide without cover at Moonee Valley on July 31, it was some effort to go down by just a half-length to one of the boom horses heading into the spring. He comes back to a track that he has tasted success on before, and with a step up to 1800m coming when third-up from a spell, we anticipate Tuvalu will salute in the second leg of the quaddie with a dominant front-running display.
Next Best at Sandown: Eagles Crag
Wednesday marks the return of Eagles Crag for the Archie Alexander stable in preparation for some of the nicer races later in the spring. The way the four-year-old Fastnet Rock entire won his two starts during the summer suggested he was one to follow, and he has a win to his name at Sandown already (albeit on the Lakeside track). He will look to go forward from barrier four under Jamie Kah and will most likely settle outside Mr Brightside in the running. Despite his rival having race fitness on his side, Eagles Crag has a touch of class and should be too good in the opening leg of the quaddie.
Sandown Value Bet: Madame Bolli
In the final leg of the quaddie, the Jim Conlan-trained Madame Bolli steps back from a Saturday metropolitan race to a midweek BM70 against her own sex. Despite being well beaten at Caulfield on July 10, she had managed to put together three successive wins prior to that. The four-year-old Written Tycoon mare has the early speed to go forward and dictate terms, and with Josh Richards on board claiming 3kg, she will prove hard to catch with just 55kg on her back.
