Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (12:00) Highway Handicap C3 (1300m)
#1 – I Am Capitan – Bet Now
I Am Capitan has had plenty of experience running in these races and deserves a winning turn.
The seven-year-old is a three-time winner and 11-time placegetter from 20 starts, which ran well for fourth on this track last time out.
He should be able to get a Highway Handicap win sooner rather than later.
Race 2. (12:35) Book Spring Hospitality BM78 (1400m)
#7 – Bubbles Ball – Bet Now
Consistency is with Bubbles Ball, which has yet to finish outside the first two placings from eight starts.
That includes three wins and the four-year-old mare by Zoustar looks to have a nice future. She’s still learning but gets into this race well off on the weights.
Carrying 55.5kg will help her chances and with natural improvement, she should be able to muster enough in this grade.
Race 3. (13:10) Everest Carnival BM70 (1100m)
#10 – Maddi Rocks – Bet Now
This is a very tough field to work out as there’s many last-start winners, but Maddi Rocks could offer value.
The Chris Waller-trained filly finished second on debut behind a nice type before winning with style at Canterbury last start.
She scored by 2.3 lengths and with only 52kg on her back here, she’s going to get every chance to win up in grade.
Race 4. (13:45) ATC Member Tours BM78 (1000m)
#7 – God of Thunder – Bet Now
God of Thunder is coming off a disappointing eighth in a tough race at Randwick in March, but he has good speed.
The Hawkes-trained four-year-old will need to rely on his good barrier speed from barrier 14, but we’re expecting him to push forward.
There’s no doubting his talents and we’re happy to take the each-way odds that should be on offer.
Race 5. (14:20) Events By ATC BM78 (1550m)
#2 – Wolfe – Bet Now
Wolfe is a professional winner of four from five starts and it’s tough to overlook that terrific form.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained five-year-old has been patiently handled by connections and it has seemingly paid dividends.
His most recent win came in May and it came on this track. Having that experience helps and we’re confident of another good showing.
Race 6. (15:00) Premier’s Cup Prelude (1800m)
#12 – Toryjoy – Bet Now
We wouldn’t usually go with a horse like Toryjoy in a race like this, but she gets in well on the weights and she’s in form.
The Waller-trained mare has won two of her last three starts and she’s up and running this season. Rising in grade is the obvious query but she carries only 52kg on the back.
She looks the best of the light weight chances in this race.
Race 7. (15:40) Spring Review Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Wren’s Day – Bet Now
Wren’s Day is a very interesting runner and we could be seeing a pretty smart import. The James Cummings-trained horse won a trial over 900m at Rosehill and that was a good sign.
His best form in Europe came over 2000m+ and he even has a second placing behind champion runner Cracksman.
That’s about the best form you’ll see from a current import in Australia and it will be surprising to see what odds the bookmakers offer come race day.
Race 8. (16:20) TAB BM78 (1400m)
#1 – Thy Kingdom Come – Bet Now
Thy Kingdom Come is starting to get fitter this campaign after two runs and now could be the time to strike.
The John Thompson-trained five-year-old finished a close fourth at Randwick earlier this month and having that race fitness is ideal.
Jockey James McDonald won’t have to do much work from the inside barrier and punters should be getting each-way odds.
Race 9. (17:00) Winter Racing BM88 (1100m)
#7 – Ranier – Bet Now
Class is with Ranier, which scored a couple of big wins last spring and he could return a winner this time in.
The Cummings-trained four-year-old was disappointing following those wins but he wasn’t exactly facing easy opposition.
This is much easier and jockey Rachel King taking weight off his back is only going to help his chances.
