Wednesday Racing Preview - Sandown

We're looking forward to some cracking mid week racing, and we've cast our eye over the cards to pick out the best value bets we can find for you.

At Sandown we've picked out three runners who we think are priced a little longer than they ought to be.

First up, in the 3:40 Fortune Stakes, we fancy Tenor to show the strongest in a decent field.

With the weather holding fine, his six wins over 1 mile to 1 mile 2 furlongs and in good or good to firm conditions should really tell in this race.

The only blip in his recent form is a non finish when he burst a blood vessel, but he came back to win last time out at Bath demonstrating that the experience doesn't appear to have caused him any psychological harm.

On his current form we'd be astonished if he isn't fighting for the lead at the line.

All of which makes him extremely tempting, as at BetFred you can pick him up for an excellent 5/1.

In the following 4:15 St. James's Place Wealth Management Fillies' Handicap, we've chosen Special Miss as our one to watch.

The first good sign is that she has two wins in her recent form, but things get better than that.

Both of those wins were at this course - indeed, all three of her races since changing hands in July have been at Sandown. Furthermore, both of those wins were over similar distances to this race, and she's shown she can do it in conditions either side of good.

The 6lb rise in weight since her last victory is an issue, but it still leaves her lighter than most of her rivals, and we think she's going to be fighting at the sharp end.

You might prefer to take her each way, but at 8/1 over at Coral she's a very tempting price for the win.

Finally, in the 4:45 Support Racehorse Sanctuary Text: 70070 'Hors20 5' Handicap, we're a little torn.

Shama's Crown looks to be an excellent young horse, as demonstrated by her two results so far. She's still improving and looks to be at a decent mark.

Telefono also looks to have potential. She won her third maiden after placing second twice, but didn't quite bring that form to the table on her handicap debut three weeks back.

It's possible this may not be her ideal trip, but we can't help but feel there's more to come from her, and having a little previous handicap experience may play in her favour.

Plus we can't miss out on a good deal, and Shama's Crown is the close to evens favourite.

We prefer a better return on our money where possible, so we'd head to Ladbrokes and pick up their offer of 4/1 on Telefono to win.

2014 St Leger Preview - Doncaster

This weekend sees the runnning of the final Classic of the season, the St Leger at Doncaster on Saturday.

Setting off at 3:50, it looks to be a race with money making potential.

Overall, our feeling is that the field is not quite as classy as some years, but there are certainly a few horses to watch.

First among them is the current favourite, Kingston Hill.

He's only of the only horses in the last few years to take part in every leg of the Triple Crown, achieving a decent eight in the 2000 Guineas in May and following that up with a very good second in the Derby.

His determination in that race was impressive, and he'll need to dig deep again at Doncaster, but the signs are all there that Kingston Hill can be a really class act on his day.

He's coming in to 3/1 and lower, but at ToteSport you can still pick him up at a favourable 7/2.

Kingston Hill isn't without worries, though. He doesn't like firm ground, so the dry weather predicted may be an issue.

He may also find the distance a tough test - indeed the last two furlongs may be the make or break moment for Kingston Hill in more ways than one.

Should he fade or be withdrawn, second favourite Romsdal looks like a good call.

He came third, three lengths behind Kingston Hill, in the Derby, a result which was frankly an excellent achievement and somewhat unexpected after the preliminary races.

He has potential over this distance and has the chance here to prove himself a better stayer than his previous nemesis.

He's hovering around 6/1 in the odds but you can still pick him up fractionally higher at 13/2 over at Paddy Power.

Finally, our outside choice of the day is Forever Now.

He's only run five times but each one has been an improvement on the previous run in some way. Last time out at Goodwood he held on well under pressure over the final furlong.

We think he'll confirm that strength over the stamina test at Doncaster, and with five time St Leger winner Frankie Dettori riding him he's got every chance of being there or thereabouts come the finish line.

We've saved the best news til last, though: not only are his odds extremely tempting, he's also currently the subject of a price boost at SkyBet.

That means if you head over there now you can pick him up at an excellent 18/1!
