Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Unsw BM88 (1200m)
#8 – Misteed @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Misteed didn’t fire in a fresh state at Kembla Grange but he runs better at Randwick.
The Snowden-trained four-year-old has had three starts at Randwick for one win and a placing.
The daughter of Exceed And Excel gets into this race with only 53kg on her back and jumping from barrier two is ideal.
Punters are getting each-way odds to kick off the meeting.
Race 2. (13:35) Highway Handicap (1000m)
#15 – Calescent @ $9 – Bet Now
Matthew Dale has a good record in this race and he lines up the three-year-old filly which has ability.
She has won three of her eight career starts and she was simply too good for them when scoring by 1.8 lengths at Wagga last start.
The breeding is there for her to kick on with it now and punters are getting very generous odds from bookmakers.
Race 3. (14:10) Christmas Cup (2400m)
#3 – High Bridge @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the eight-year-old which could be past his best, but he has another win in store soon.
The imported son of Monsun has a terrific second up record of six starts for four wins and a placing. That’s tough to ignore in a race like this and we’re already seeing some positive betting moves.
Punters took the opening odds of $5.50 and he’s now into $4.80 with only 53kg on his back.
Race 4. (14:45) Inglis Nursery (1000m)
#10 – Wild Ruler @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Wild Ruler has been heavily backed to win here after some pleasing trial efforts coming into this.
The son of Snitzel scored by 1.5 lengths at Gosford last start and he’s going to get all favours off the inside barrier draw.
He’s a well-regarded type which opened at $4.40 and has already been hammered into $3.20. Expect more money to come.
Race 5. (15:20) Ces BM74 (1100m)
#11 – Superium @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Superium has a lot of talent and was unlucky when crossing the line first on August 24 only to lose in the protest room.
The Joe Pride-trained sprinter didn’t quite live up to expectations in subsequent runs but the three-year-old is quality at best.
Gets a good run from an inside draw and having Nash Rawiller in the saddle is going to take him a long way.
Nice enough odds on offer for punters.
Race 6. (16:00) Fugen Construction Razor Sharp Stakes (1200m)
#5 – Multaja @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Multaja has a quality turn-of-foot and she only needs pace on up front to launch late.
Trained by James Cummings, the four-year-old mare is a five-time winner from 16 starts which has been close without winning this preparation.
James McDonald is an aggressive rider so punters should expect her to be closer to the pace where she can loom on the turn.
Drifting in the betting after some moves for the favourite.
Race 7. (16:40) Villiers Stakes (1600m)
#1 – Invincible Gem @ $16 – Bet Now
Great odds on offer for the Lees-trained runner which ran well for fourth at Rosehill last start.
That came behind Ranier in a competitive race and although she has largely disappointed since arriving in this stable, she could bounce back nicely.
Hugh Bowman rides from barrier two and we’re expecting value punters to come for the $16 on offer. Those odds could drop significantly come race day.
Race 8. (17:20) Heineken 3 BM88 (1600m)
#6 – Strome @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Strome is a bullish type which often goes under the radar. The Gary Portelli-trained mare has won seven from 28 starts and that also includes eight placings.
She didn’t lose any admirers when running second at Rosehill last start and this is an easier field to face.
There won’t be much between the majority of the field and we’re happy enough to take the $3.70 on offer.
Race 9. (18:00) Long May We Play BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Something Fast @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Anthony Cummings lines up the five-year-old gelding which hasn’t done much wrong in a limited career to date.
The son of Smart Missile scored back-to-back wins in April before winning again in May. He returned this campaign last month with a second placing at Rosehill and that’s good form.
Punters are getting great odds and an inside draw should see him fighting out the finish.
