There's Grade 1 horse racing action at Sandown Park this weekend with eight runners confirmed for the Unibet Tolworth Novices' Hurdle. This year's renewal was thrown wide open this week after market leaders, Luccia was withdrawn on Wednesday due to an unsatisfactory scope. Here at betting.bet, you can find the latest race odds and betting offers courtesy of race sponsors, Unibet.
In the absence of Luccia, Authorised Speed has been installed as race favourite. The Gary Moore-trained six-year-old heads to Sandown on the back of two successive wins. His most recent win came over C&D in a race that's produced two of the last three Tolworth winners. Authorised Speed is not the only C&D winner in the race. Colonel Harry claimed a seven-length victory in a Maiden at Sandown in November but odds of 25/1 suggest he's unlikely to make the step up in this far more competitive race.
Tahmuras displayed excellent form over the autumn, winning successive races in November. Latest win was an impressive Listed win at Haydock and there's likely to be a lot more to come from this progressive type.
The current betting market indicates a three-way battle between Authorised Speed, Tahmuras and Arctic Bresil. Rachael Blackmore rides Arctic Bresil for Henry de Bromhead who arrives at Sandown hot off the back of a strong win at Cork on his debut over rules.
