3:10 Sandown Tips
This race looks to be all about Roger Varian's SHARJA BRIDGE (7/4). She got off the mark at the third attempt last time out and looked very impressive, winning by a comfortable 4lengths at Nottingham.
An opening mark of 95 looks fair on that result and this unexposed colt can get off the mark in handicap company and possibly go on to bigger and better things in the near future.
3:45 Sandown Tips
Last year's winner FIRST EXPERIENCE (12/1) lines up again this year and it would be no surprise if connections were aiming for another win this year. His recent run after 9 weeks off should have blown the cobwebs away and I think there's a good chance she could out run her big odds.
The one she has to beat has to be CARIDADE (11/4) for Kevin Ryan and Kevin Stott. She was an emphatic winner at Redcar last month (winning by 6lengths) and most recently ran extremely well in hot handicap at York. She takes a big drop in class today and should definitely being close in this.
