The best wager on the jumps at Sandown tho', in my opinion, comes earlier in the afternoon at 2:40 in the Celebration Chase. I do not think anyone can rely on Sanctuaire showing his best foot. If he does then he should win, but he is a rogue. Finians Rainbow has looked a shadow of his former self this season and to wager on him is not logical. That leaves WISHFUL THINKING as the way to go. He's run as well as ever this season, confirming his novice season promise, and a repeat of his winning form of February at Newbury should see him take this at rewarding odds of 4/1 (available generally).
Earlier this week I wrote that I would be streamlining my wagering this summer due to time constraints. As such, on the Flat racing I’m going to focus mainly on those races which are “Listed” class or better. There are plenty of them throughout the Flat season and, because there are a lot of them, a fair percentage are “weak”. That’s the angle that I am hoping to exploit. There are a couple today which I think offer very decent opportunities. At Sandown in the Group 3 Gordon Richards Stakes at 3:15, AL KAZEEM looks to have this race at his mercy if he can repeat the form of his only run last season when winning off a very long break. I would expect Ektihaam to try and stretch his stamina, but that may well work in the favour of AL KAZEEM by making it a true-run race with a good pace. At 3/1 with Bet365 and Ladbrokes, those odds are too good to ignore.

Remember - gambling on horseracing should be a pleasurable experience - never bet more than you can afford to lose.
