Sandown Racing Preview - Can Rapidora finish off fast?

Sandown hosts Melbourne's meeting this Wednesday which will be Australia's most prominent card.

The rail will be sitting at the six metre mark with the track currently in that Good 4 range, perfect for racing.

Best Sandown Favourite - Music Of The Night @ 6

Race 5 No. 7 Music Of The Night

Music Of The Night was backed strongly in first-up run and battled on well to claim third.

She now comes into the race second-up where she has only missed the placings once from three starts at this point of the preparation.

She loves the Sandown track will be hard to hold out in the fifth event.

Best Sandown Roughies - Search Squad @ 13

Race 6 No. 4 Search Squad

He is as honest and will always give his best.

Search Squad's form this prep has been around better horses than these have been racing against so that again puts him right in the thick of things.

His winning strike rate makes it hard to tip him as he sit son around that 10 per cent mark, but he has been out of the winners stall for around seven runs now so hopefully we can see him somewhere in the finish at double figures.


Sandown Best Bet - Rapidora @ 4.80

Race 8 No. 7 Rapidora

This mare has been good this campaign and is should have more wins to her name.

First-up she battled on well to place before just finishing second under duress in impressive fashion. She comes into this race fourth-up and she should be at peak fitness and barrier five should see her position beautifully off of the rail.

Sandown Next Best Bet - Beau Mec @ 3.10

Race 1 No. 1 Beau Mec

This galloper finished under a length away from a possible graded class stayer last-start and was only a half length away the run before that.

On recent form, Beau Mec should not be a maiden for too much longer, and if he can reproduce the same run as he did last start this field will be no match.

Apprentice Michael Poy will use his 2kg claim to get is weight down, which is the decisive factor in this event.
