Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (12:45) Light Horse Brigade Maiden (1400m)
#3 – Les Amoureux @ $1.90 – Bet Now
Anthony Cummings lines up the three-year-old filly and her race experience is going to be an asset in this race.
The well-bred daughter of Redoute’s Choice has three placings from six starts and although she has been backed and beaten this season, she meets a field there for the taking.
The inside draw is ideal so put her on top.
Race 2. (13:20) Armistace Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Libertini @ $1.80 – Bet Now
Another short-priced runner for Anthony Cummings but this filly has ability. She ran second on debut at Group 3 level and this is a massive drop in class.
She’s a two-year-old filly by I Am Invincible, which showed ability at the trials before making her debut and dropping back from group grade to maiden company is a big plus.
She deserves to be at an odds-on quote.
Race 3. (13:55) Battle of Amiens Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Disruptor $3 – Bet Now
Two-year-old colt Disruptor ran well on debut at Randwick and has been primed with two recent trial efforts.
His most recent performance was a win at Warwick Farm by 1.5 lengths and that’s going to hold him in good stead for this.
Drawing barrier 14 isn’t ideal, so he will need plenty of luck, but he has been backed in from $3.90 to $3 and that’s a good sign.
Race 4. (14:30) Beersheba BM72 (1600m)
#7 – Wild Impact @ $3 – Bet Now
John Thompson lines up the four-year-old mare which scored a maiden win at Newcastle on debut in September and was immediately spelled.
The daughter of Deep Impact has had two trials since, including a placing at Randwick and she could return in fine order.
The betting suggests she’s ready to go after the long break and we’re backing her in.
Race 5. (15:10) Anzac Day Cup BM88 (1800m)
#7 – Girl Tuesday @ $3.60 – Bet Now
Girl Tuesday has been disappointing this campaign, with four consecutive eighth-place finishes. That doesn’t look attractive for punters but she’s better than that.
The Chris Waller-trained mare strangely won her first four starts and looked good in doing so, before running four consecutive poor performances.
Dropping in grade could help her chances and carrying 55kg from the inside barrier should see her land on the speed.
Doesn’t get a better chance to return to form here.
Race 6. (15:45) Passchendale BM70 (1200m)
#3 – Reginae @ $2.10 – Bet Now
Reginae is a quality three-year-old filly which has two wins and two placings from five starts. Her most recent run came at Gosford when running third but she didn’t lose any admirers.
Her best form saw her win at Randwick by 1.5 lengths in September last year and anything close to that sees her winning this.
Her opening odds of $2.05 have drifted out a touch to $2.10, which is surprising, but she’ll be right around the mark.
Race 7. (16:20) Battle of Messines BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Wolfe @ $1.65 – Bet Now
It’s another short-priced favourite but Wolfe hasn’t done anything wrong to date and should be tough to beat against this field.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding makes his return having not raced since November, where he scored by a length at Hawkesbury.
He’s unbeaten after two starts to date and despite running at odds too short to be considered value, we couldn’t be betting against him.
Race 8. (16:55) Last Post BM74 (1000m)
#4 – Southern Lad @ $4.40 – Bet Now
More than capable four-year-old which has won three of his seven starts to date.
The John O’Shea-trained son of Ocean Park did finish last of seven runners at the Randwick trials to prepare for this, but he wasn’t asked for much.
He has past experience on this track and he looms as a top chance.
