Heading to the middle of the year, British horse racing can only get better as the good tidings continue to flow. Having fans in the stands seems a real possibility, and when you look at any horse racing betting guide, you cannot help but be pumped the season heads deeper into the flats. Sandown Park is going to be the place for an evening showdown late in the week. The rare six-race meeting will end an event-filled day for racing across the channel. The weather prediction favors a dry day on Wednesday through Thursday, with enough showers on previous ones, to keep the courses soft. The races will begin just before the clock turns six and run deep into the evening.
An all-evening affair, the first clap will go off at 5:45 PM, with the PLAY CORAL RACING SUPER SERIES FOR FREE HANDICAP STAKES. One of the numerous series qualifiers in horse racing, the Class 5 run will stretch over a mile, a furlong, and two-hundred and nine yards. Set up for four-year-olds, the horses will fall within the 56-75 rating, with the winner taking home £6,500.
