Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (11:25) Kings of Sydney Sport Mile (1600m)
#1 – Amercement @ $3.20 – Bet Now
The James Cummings-trained filly has one win from four starts and she has been facing some tough fields throughout her career.
She ran fourth behind Golden Slipper winner Kiamichi last time out and although her recent trial was only average, she wasn’t fully let down.
Good chance here and $3.20 is worth the risk.
Race 2. (12:05) Agency South Pacific Classic (1400m)
#11 – Green Aeon @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Unbeaten from two starts and he has looked good in doing so. He does race a touch green, but he has obvious natural ability and that’s exciting.
Bjorn Baker lines up the son of Snitzel, which scored by three lengths at Warwick Farm last start and although he still has plenty to learn, if he runs professionally here, they might find it tough to catch him.
$4.60 is a good price.
Race 3. (12:40) Polytrack Provincial Championships Final (1400m)
#2 – Archedemus @ $3.60 – Bet Now
Easily the form runner coming into this with five consecutive wins and he looks a type which could run well in a group race.
The five-year-old is now a winner of five from seven starts and although he’s coming off a 35-day break, he should strip fit for this and be a winning threat.
Has good scope and this stable has been going well recently.
Race 4. (13:15) Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m)
#5 – Cheer Leader @ $2.80 – Bet Now
That was some sort of win at Moonee Valley last start when clearing them out by five lengths and she looks ready to make the rise in class.
She’s facing a Golden Slipper winner but she’s the fresher runner of this field, having not had a hard run this campaign.
That bodes well for this and seeing most of the early money come for her is a great sign here.
Race 5. (13:50) Arrowfield Sprint (1200m)
#7 – Classique Legend @ $4.60 – Bet Now
We could have picked numerous runners in this field but Classique Legend brings some excitement and a good ride could get him home.
He was forced to race three-wide on the pace last start and he still looked a winner with 200m to go. He finished third on that occasion but lost no admirers in the process.
This is a much harder field and we’re respecting that, but he could be a star and we’re prepared to take the $4.60 to find out.
Race 10. (17:10) Sapphire Stakes (1200m)
#5 – Spright @ $3.80 – Bet Now
She’s a more than capable sprinter which gets in well off on the weights here. The Garry Frazer-trained mare ran second at Randwick two back and backed that up with a Group 1 placing behind Sunlight.
We can’t quite believe the odds on offer for a last-start William Reid Stakes placegetter, but we’ll take the $3.80 on offer.
She has experience that many in this field don’t and that could be the winning factor.
