The second day of the Coral Summer Festival gets underway at Sandown on Saturday, with a bumper eight-race card on offer for punters.

The action gets underway with a 5f Handicap at 1.15 and concludes with a 1m2f Handicap at 5.15, with the Coral-Eclipse featuring at 3.35.

Our team have scoured through the card in hope of hunting down some value on the card at the Esher-based course.

Here are three selections to consider for day two of the Sandown Summer Festival.

Bossipop – 1.15 Sandown (17/2 – Betfair)

A runner that is in good form, Bossipop could prove to be of interest in the 5f Handicap for Tim Easterby.

He finished a respectable fourth on his last outing seven days ago and the eight-year-old ran out a comfortable winner at Pontefract in late May.

The gelding sits at a decent mark and is a very tough contender to beat when at his best, with his price of 17/2 very appealing for this contest.

Lazuli – 1.50 Sandown (11/2 – Various)

A gelding that looks to have bags of ability, Lazuli returns to action at Sandown in the Group 3 Coral Charge for Charlie Appleby.

The four-year-old only did what was required of him in the Palace House Stakes at Newmarket in early May, winning by a neck.

He could have more to offer and looks cracking value for this contest at 11/2.

Marie’s Diamond – 2.25 Sandown (20/1 – bet365 + Ladbrokes)

Making his debut in handicap company, Marie’s Diamond could well be seriously overpriced for the Coral Challenge Handicap for Mark Johnston.

The five-year-old has regularly featured in Group races throughout his career and claimed success over a mile in Listed company on several occasions.

He looks to be at a generous mark here and he could well strike at the cracking price of 20/1 here.
