The Best Horse Racing Tips for Sandown on Thursday Evening

Featuring the Group 3 Coral Henry 11 Stakes and Group 3 Coral Brigadier Gerard Stakes (In memory of Joe Mercer), Sandown stages one of the best evening fixtures of the entire Flat season on Thursday. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for three of the races taking place, starting with the Listed National Stakes at 6.15pm.

With the main races both attracting field of only five runners, we will concentrate on the final two handicaps, at 8.00pm and 8.30pm, for our other Horse Racing tips, the Class 3 one mile Whitsun Cup and Class 4 Coral “Supporting Prostate Cancer” Handicap, also run over one mile.

Our Tip for the 6.15pm at Sandown:

A fascinating renewal of this Listed race, run over the minimum trip, with all eight juveniles boasting at least one victory to date. The David Evans-trained Choux landed a major gamble when winning at Thirsk on her debut (backed into 100/30 from 40/1). But the daughter Exceed And Excel will need to step up again if she is to follow-up in this company.

Trainer George Boughey’s two-year-old’s are in sparkling form at the moment and his Navello has already recorded three victories in the space of just over two weeks. The mount of Nicola Currie is clearly going to take some stopping. But if the son of Ivawood’s winning run is to come to an end, it is likely to be at the hands of Chipotle, from the Eve Johnson Houghton stable.

Unbeaten in both starts to date, Charles Bishop’s mount, after easily winning his maiden at Doncaster in March, proved far too good for the Mark Johnston-trained The Gatekeeper in a Conditions Stakes at Ascot the following month and is take to land the hat-trick, at the main expense of Navello.

Our Tip for the 8.00pm at Sandown:

Top weight History Writer seems to reserve his best for Sandown, especially when there is some cut in the ground. And the mount of William Buick should put up another decent performance at the track following a promising effort in Ascot’s Victoria Cup last time.

Epic Endeavor, the unexposed Semser, and the Eve Johnson Houghton-trained pair of Gin Palace and Sword Beach are others who could play a role in the outcome of this 1m handicap. But it is a potential future Group horse in the shape of Ransom who is taken to open his account on turf.

Nobody does better with this type of late developer than trainer Sir Michael Stoute. And the mount of Ryan Moore, winner of his first two starts, at Lingfield and Kempton, can prove better than his most recent effort at the latter track and take this contest before stepping up in class.

Our Tip for the 8.30pm at Sandown:

A wide-open handicap to end the card. Urban Violet, Final Watch, Grand Scheme and Encourage will all have their supporters. But at a double-figure price it could pay to take a chance on the Rod Millman-trained Coul Kat.

The three-year-old gelding improved with each outing as a juvenile, culminating in a narrow victory at Pontefract on his final start of the season.

The mount of Ben Curtis made a good start to the present campaign, beating all bar winner Patient Dream at Epsom last month. A disappointing favourite on his most recent outing at Chepstow ten days later, that race may have come too soon for the son of Coulsty who, with conditions to suit, can make the frame at the very least.
