Some excellent racing over the jumps today, with Sandown hosting the first of it's 2-day Tingle Creek meeting card. Here are the thoughts of our Long Shot tipster.

Darebin is a bit of a course specialist having had 19 starts at the Esher track and 4 wins and 5 places. He can go close again in the 14:55 at Sandown. He has been a little out of form recently and ran only a fair race at Plumpton last time where 3rd of 4 beaten 10 1/2l. However he has now slipped to a very handy mark of 96 and to put that into context he finished a very good second in this race last season off a mark of 113. The hope is that he still retains some of his ability and a return to this venue could spark a revival. Gary Moore has his horses in fine form at the moment so a chance is taken on Darebin. He rates a 1 star each way Pick.
