Race 2. (13:05) Antler Luggage Stakes (1400m)
#4 – Ranier @ $3.50 – BET NOW
Ranier might still be a maiden runner but the son of Lonhro looks primed for a winning turn here. The three-year-old was form behind some top types and he’s going to get everything to suit here.
He owns placings behind Miss Fabulass, Reginae and Nakeeta Jane. That’s strong form and with a good draw to jump from, jockey Hugh Bowman should be able to find a good position during the run and strike late.
Race 4. (14:20) UCI Stakes (1800m)
#5 – Savoie @ $3.10 – BET NOW
Has scored consecutive wins prior to this and his most recent win came on this track by four lengths, which was an impressive display.
The Darren Weir-trained three-year-old also scored a 5.5-length win at Swan Hill over the mile prior to that and the only negative is drawing barrier 13, but that shouldn’t be an issue over this distance.
He’s looking cherry ripe for a Derby run next month and winning this will be the logical step.
Race 7. (16:20) The Bart Cummings (2500m)
#1 – Avilius @ $2.20 – BET NOW
Four-year-old gelding Avilius is unbeaten since arriving in Australia and all three wins have been impressive.
The Pivotal gelding hasn’t been winning by big margins but he has been running with a good turn-of-foot and that’s a great asset to have in a staying race.
Drawing the inside barrier can only be a positive over this distance and we’re expecting the $2.20 to shorten come race day.
Race 8. (17:00) Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m)
#15 – Verry Elleegant @ $4.40 – BET NOW
The New Zealand three-year-old has been sold to Australian interests and is now with Darren Weir after posting a 2.3-length win at Matamata last start and it was mightily impressive.
The filly by Zed has produced back-to-back victories and it was only a matter of time before she was going to race in Australia.
This looks like a tough but achievable target and the $4.40 is solid value.
Randwick free tips and form
Race 1. (12:15) Young Members BM74 (1400m)
#3– Yulong January @ $3 – BET NOW
The unbeaten colt has been impressive in two wins to date and it gets into this race well off on the weights and he secures the inside barrier.
Ciaron Maher and David Eustace are firing at the moment and his 3.5-length victory last time out suggested that he owns plenty of class.
$3 is a fair price from bookmakers and we’re expecting that price to drop.
Race 4. (14:00) Cellarbrations Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Just Dreaming @ $4.20 – BET NOW
Just Dreaming didn’t quite show her best ability when last time in work but she has been primed with two recent trials and she could kick off the spring with a win.
The Kris Lees-trained runner is well off at the weights at 54.5kg and the six-time winner, although not a past winner at Randwick, looms as a winning chance here.
$4.20 is a fair price and it represents each way odds.
Race 6. (15:20) Roman Consul Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Sandbar @ $4.40 – BET NOW
Finished fourth behind The Autumn Sun at Group 1 level last time out and that should be a strong form guide for this.
The Brad Widdup-trained three-year-old is a three-time winner, including a quality win at Rosehill and he’s facing an easier field this time around.
Getting the inside draw is a bonus and he represents good each way odds.
Race 8. (16:40) Harrolds Angst Stakes (1600m)
#5 – I Am Serious @ $2.80 – BET NOW
I Am Serious has been running some seriously good races behind Avilius this campaign and that form should stack up nicely for this.
The Chris Waller-trained five-year-old is a winner of seven from 14 starts and she has won two from three on this track.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and she’s going to be seriously tough to beat with only 54kg and James McDonald in the saddle.
