2014 Sandown Guineas Betting Update

November 13th, 2014

Thirteen runners have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m), offering punters sensational value from a betting point of view and several key opportunities to place a winning bet.

Having returned to racing in exceptional for this season, Stratum Star has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in Sandown Guineas betting markets and is currently available at $2.80 odds for success at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Securing three wins and three minor places from his ten competitive appearances on course so far, Stratum Star was unable to make much of an impact over four starts in his debut preparation through autumn, but quickly stamped his claims as a serious spring contender when running third in a minor over 1100m first-up and winning a talent-filled maiden event over 1300m on September 2nd.

Unlucky to finish second in the Pea Co BM64 (1354m) on September 15th, the Stratum colt won both the Listed Yellowglen Vintage Stakes (1400m) and Listed Crown Lager Stakes (1400m) through October before placing second to Kermadec in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) on Derby Day most recently.

Allocated the ideal barrier 2, punters may find value in adding Stratum Star as a selection in a Sandown Guineas quinella or trifecta bet.

While yet to experience much attention in Sandown Guineas betting markets, impressive last-start winner Rekindled Power is more than worth consideration for a bet this weekend at particularly generous $3.80 odds for success.

Finishing third in the It’s A Betting Season Maiden (1100m) on debut on October 1st, Rekindled Power was unlucky to be blocked for a run and sixth in the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m) on October 18th but responded in the best way possible when charging home to win the Bendigo RSL Plate (1400m) by close to four lengths on October 29th.

Arguably offering punters the best value for money in Sandown Guineas betting markets at current odds, classy three-year-old Lord Aspen is yet to taste anything but success over his four race career so far and is a great chance of delivering on $4.80 odds from barrier 6.

Taking out a minor over 1050m on debut by six lengths in June before returning to the paddock for a brief spell, Lord Aspen comfortably won each of the Adelaide Galvanising 3.y.o (1200m) and Master Builders 3.y.o (1400m) upon returning this time before completing a successful transition to black type racing when winning the Listed Hilton Hotels Stakes (1400m) last time out on November 8th.
