Sandown heads five meetings with Kingman half-brother on show

Sandown: race on Wednesday
1 of 1

If you don't have to work today, go racing. There are a number of future stars on show at Sandown with the likes of impressive debut winner Il Primo Sole taking on the unbeaten Godolphin-owned Last Voyage in the conditions stakes (2.35), while there's a Frankel juvenile on show.

He's not just any old offspring of Frankel, he's also a half-brother to Kingman. Of course Khalid Abdullah owns the John Gosden-trained colt, named First Eleven, and connections will hope the fantastic family genes have passed down in the family so he can fend off his eleven rivals – there's a football joke in there somewhere!

Paul Hanagan also returns to action at Beverley with four rides after having to sit Tuesday out after reacting badly to a wasp sting

What to back

Nick Watts' best bet comes in the four-runner conditions affair at Sandown.

Plus our tipping team have been studying hard and chosen these runners as their bets for the day.   

What to read

Both Brametot and Zarak impressed their connections during a gallop on Tuesday and are primed for their Arc bids.

A BHA hearing into Stephen McConville's Anseanachai Cliste's drug results concluded, with a long wait on the sidelines for both the trainer and owner.

Anseanachai Cliste was found to have cobalt in his system, which is banned in British racing. Find out more about cobalt here.

What to watch

Our Newmarket correspondent David Milnes went to visit some of Luca Cumani's string.

Final thought 

Isn't it great to see a good midweek fixture at Sandown? Wednesdays can be dull for top-class action but there are several runners on show today who could be top class.
