Racing will return to Sandown Racecourse for the first time in seven weeks on Wednesday afternoon as the Melbourne Racing Club hosts a very competitive eight-race card.

The rail will be in the true position, with the opening race scheduled to jump at 1pm AEDT.
Best Bet at Sandown: Alectrona
After finishing second in back-to-back runs, Alectrona from the Tony & Calvin McEvoy stable broke her maiden in fine style at Bendigo last start. This three-year-old filly was sent around as an odds-on favourite with online bookmakers, and even though she was pestered in the lead, she kicked clear with 300m and recorded a dominant 3.25-length victory. This daughter of The Autumn Sun now steps up to Benchmark 64 grade, but we don’t expect that to trouble this progressive youngster. Harry Coffey will retain the ride, and if he can find the front from barrier four, Alectrona should prove very hard to run down.
Race 3 – #3 Alectrona (4)
3yo Filly | T: Tony & Calvin McEvoy | J: Harry Coffey (57.5kg)
Next Best at Sandown: Sisterhood
Sisterhood will return from a 34-week spell as she seeks her second win in only her fourth career start. Before going out for a spell, the four-year-old mare finished third behind Caste and Jennilala at Sandown Hillside over 1300m, where she was made to work early and stuck on to be beaten just over two lengths by the top two. As those two runners went on to win Group races later in their respective preparations, the form is superior to that of her rivals in this field. From barrier one, Ben Allen should lob in the box seat and get all the favours in the running.
Race 2 – #6 Sisterhood (1)
4yo Mare | T: Ciaron Maher & David Eustace | J: Ben Allen (57kg)
Next Best Again at Sandown: Jenniferwish
Jenniferwish has recorded back-to-back thirds to kick off this preparation. At Pakenham last time out, she settled towards the rear of the field and, once she found clear air, ran home strongly with a nice turn of foot. This daughter of Mshawish is crying out for 1400m, and that is exactly what she gets here. Declan Bates can settle much closer to the speed from barrier two, and if Jenniferwish produces a similar finishing burst as her last two starts, she will go very close.
