Today’s horse racing preview comes from Sandown with two selections from the meeting. What an action packed Saturday of finally quality racing, it’s been a slow start to July for the blog, but we are only in the first week enough time to bring in the winners.
13.50 Sandown – Coral Charge (Sprint) (Group 3) (5.1f)
Three of the past four running’s of this race has seen the market land the spoils, once more it is very hard to look beyond Charles Hills Battaash not making it 2-2 for the season. He looked mighty impressive when landing the Scurry Stakes over course and distance three weeks ago and I have no doubt he would of improved further at home, too good for these with age allowance.
Another that has the age allowance is James Tate’s Kyllang Rock who has made a nice transition winning a conditions race at Nottingham on seasons re-appearance to go on to finish runner up at York and Haydock in Listed events, big danger and could outrun his 12/1 odds.
BATTAASH : 3pt Win @ 5/2 (BOG)
15.00 Sandown – Coral Distaff (Listed) (8f)
This is more open than it looks this afternoon and I am not willing to over look Clive Cox’s entry here Pavilion. Despite making her turf debut I think her last run at Wolverhampton can be over looked as she was found wanting inside the final furlong, she drops back here to the dead mile and on ground that should suit her fine. Stepping out of handicap company is not always that easy but considering she has won a 0-90 race this is not that much of an upgrade..
Again we have Ascot form being put on the line, both Paco’s Angel and Queen of Time ran creditably in the Sandringham with the former coming out on top of the dual to one length, the fact that Richard Hughes filly there was giving 10lb to Queen of Time suggests there is likely more to come from her the reason why she is at the head of the market.
Standing Rock is unknown quality and we will have to wait to see how strong her maiden win was at Newbury, with a couple she beat have been turned over since.
PAVILION : 2pts each way @ 10/1 (BOG)
Good Luck, Bet Responsibly
