Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (11:45) Owners Awards Maiden (1200m)
#4 – Mandela – Bet Now
We’re not entirely sure what went wrong last start but we’re prepared to give him another chance.
The highly-touted Snowden-trained runner finished a disappointing fifth at Randwick as the $2.20 favourite and the betting on the day might have told the story.
He drifted from $1.70 to $2.20 and if he holds steady in the betting this time around, expect a much better effort.
Race 2. (12:20) NSW Trainers Association BM70 (1200m)
#7 – True Detective – Bet Now
Scratched from racing last time out, True Detective will have more fitness under the belt now.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old finished a nose behind Spend last time out at Rosehill and that form could stack up in early spring.
Looks ideally suited by the 54.5kg and we’re expecting plenty of money to come for him on race day.
Race 3. (12:55) Racehorse Owners BM88 (1600m)
#5 – Attention Run – Bet Now
Comes into this having scored an impressive upset win at Randwick last start where she paid $20 to win.
The Kris Lees-trained import showed why punters should always consider overseas form when winning at her Australian debut.
There’s more depth to this field but German form stacks up well and we’ve seen better rating 88 fields at Randwick.
Race 4. (13:30) Racing NSW Trainers Highway (1200m)
#6 – Nicconita – Bet Now
Nicconita is the most talented runner in this field and just needs to find some consistency to warrant that.
The John Bateman-trained mare has finished in the money in 12 of her 15 starts and comes into this with a last-start win at Newcastle.
Prior to that she wasn’t getting much luck and drawing barrier 16 hurts here, but we’ll take her on class alone.
Race 5. (14:05) Jockey Celebration Day BM88 (1200m)
#7 – Roheryn – Bet Now
Bookmakers will likely have Roheryn at short odds and rightfully so after he showed plenty during his first preparation.
The James Cummings-trained gelding won his first two starts by a combined five lengths before running second behind Chess Star when the jockey got too far back in the run.
His recent trial was only average but he wasn’t asked to do much. Looks the one to beat here.
Race 6. (14:45) Dixie Blossoms Achievement BM78 (1800m)
#10 – Light Exceed – Bet Now
This isn’t an overly deep field and Light Exceed could take advantage of that. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained four-year-old is giving away experience but has winning form.
She has won her last two starts, including one by a half-length at Canterbury last start. That form isn’t overly strong but dropping to 53.5kg helps.
Tim Clark is one of the best front-running riders in the land so he’ll go forward.
Race 7. (15:25) Jockeys Reunion Handicap (1300m)
#5 – Milk Man @ $7.50 – Bet Now
French form reads well and Milk Man has looked good at the trials in prepare for his first Australian start.
The six-year-old was a two-time winner in France and has been primed with a 2.3-length trial win at Warwick Farm.
His form has come over the longer distances but that doesn’t usually matter in these races and punters are getting a good price.
Race 8. (16:05) Ind. Recognition Race Day BM78 (1800m)
#3 – Monsieur Sisu – Bet Now
Monsieur Sisu is running out of chances but we’ll load up once more this time in.
The five-year-old is a three-time winner from 18 starts and after settling close last start, he just came to the end of it.
A change of tactics could be on the agenda here and he’ll be paying each-way odds, which could be worth taking.
Race 9. (16:45) ATC Thank You Owners BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Judge Judi – Bet Now
Judge Judi is in solid form having won fresh up at Canterbury before getting an unlucky run behind Bangkok last start.
That is only midweek form but she drops nicely in weight to 55kg here and we’re predicting a smart ride from Brenton Avdulla.
Tough field here but she could add some value in the final race of the day.
