2010 Sandown Guineas Early Betting Preview

October 13th, 2010

This year the 2010 Sandown Guineas is set to take place at Sandown’s Hillside Park on Saturday November 13.

The $350,000 Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) is sponsored by Betfair, is a set weights race for three-year-olds and has a field limit of 16 starters.

One of nine quality races scheduled for the meeting, other highlights on the card worth doing an odds comparison for in the Sportsbet markets include the Group 2 Sandown Classic (2400m) and the Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m).

The favourites have won the past two Sandown Guineas so keep an eye on the runner at the top of the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au when placing your bets this year

The best lead-up race to the Sandown Guineas punters can use as a guide is the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) which has produced the past three Sandown Guineas winners.

Last year Kidnapped took out the Carbine Club Stakes – Sandown Guineas double and in 2008 Caymans ran fourth in the Carbine leading up to their Sandown Guineas victory.

The two most recent Sandown Guineas winners also started as the odds-on favourites, so sticking with the runners at the top of the betting markets could prove the right move again this year.

The 2010 Carbine Club Stakes will take place at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday 30 so keep an eye on the top performers here to get a heads up with your Sandown Guineas bets.

Nominations for the 2010 Betfair Sandown Guineas, scheduled as Race 2, close on November 8.

The final field is then released on November 11 and will be published right here.
