FAVOURITES: Sandown is unique in regard to winning favourites. Each of our six categories make a profit to level stakes over the past 5 years. In total 201 winning favourites have won from 503 races for a strike rate of 39.96% and a level stake profit of +£24.84 so well above the national average! Favourites in non-handicaps win at 46% whilst handicap favourites win at 37%.

TRAINERS: Anything that Charlie Appleby is running is winning at the moment. Over the last 14 days he shows 12-21 for 57% and the suggestion is if you are not backing one of his runners to win, do not back against him, unless you have massive perceived value or believe in luck!

Relatively speaking Team Gosden have been underperforming since the upgrade of Thady Gosden, but that looks likely to change over the next month or so. Tomorrow, they have 8 runners at the course and will be looking for multiple winners! Did you know that for 2022 so far, they have recorded just 9 winners for a paltry 10% strike rate, but had 25 second places and 14 third places. The last 14 days shows 5-35 for 14% so an air of current disappointment! Something clearly needs a tweak!

Andrew Balding has 5 entries, Richard Hannon has 2 and William Haggas 1 so all need a browse. The meeting will surely be dominated by the big five from our leader board!

JOCKEYS: Cieren Fallon is now 0-52, he has just one ride tomorrow in EMOTION (J & T Gosden) 4.10. If that one gets beaten, he has 4 rides at Doncaster on Saturday night, surely, he will not reach 0-57?

From our jockey leader board 4 of our top 5 jockeys are in action tomorrow and include W Buick, R Moore, F Dettori and Silvestre De Sousa with a total of 11 rides between them. Winner's beckon from this grouping and the suggestion is they will support the comments already given regarding our top trainers!

SANDOWN RACECOURSE CONFIGURATION

Right-handed, oval-shaped course thirteen furlongs in length with a straight of half a mile. Essentially a fair, galloping course which places the emphasis on stamina courtesy of a gradual climb from the home turn. On soft ground the jockeys sometimes tack across to the stand side in the straight and this can lead to horses racing wide apart. The five-furlong track runs across the main circuit and rises steadily throughout.

JASON WEAVER on SANDOWN

There’s no doubt it’s a big advantage being on the far rail up Sandown’s sprint course and a lot of horses drawn badly, even in medium-sized fields, fail to get into contention. It can be tricky in a finish, too, with a lot happening in the final furlong, and there’s no surprise that it lends itself to front-runners. They always seem to go quick down the back on the round course, and it’s quite a long way from the bottom of the hill to the winning post, but horses really stretch out on that kind final rise to the line”.
