Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:05) Headwater @ Vinery Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Blondeau @ $1.60 – Bet Now
Blondeau was well-backed on debut when running second behind Aim, but that form has stacked up brilliantly.
Aim was a huge winner last Saturday and Blondeau was only a half-length behind the talented type.
The colt by I Am Invincible looks well-placed from barrier four with Hugh Bowman riding and punters will have to take the short odds on offer.
Race 2. (13:45) TAB Long May We Play Maiden (1300m)
#5 – Rari @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Rari deserves a win after going so close to date and he gets a good chance to break through before the year ends.
The three-year-old for Greg Hickman has run consecutive second placings coming into this and both of those defeats came by a nose.
He has been awfully close and punters are getting nice enough odds to take. The $3.20 is a fair price given the risk.
Race 3. (14:20) Hyland Boxing Day Sale BM70 (1100m)
#4 – Aim for Perfection @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Aim for Perfection started her career with perfection after winning her first two starts.
She was beaten at her last two efforts. However, those came behind Notation and Misteed, so we’re prepared to forgive her.
The Mark Newnham-trained mare has scored a trial win at Hawkesbury to prepare for her return and she should be in fit order.
$4.20 is a good price on offer from bookmakers.
Race 4. (14:55) Quincy Seltzer BM70 (2400m)
#10 – Kentucky Tornado @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the four-year-old which has only one win from 14 starts, but does have ability.
She ran third at Rosehill behind La Grisa last start and there isn’t much wrong with that form coming into this.
Glyn Schofield takes the ride at the luxury weight of 54kg and we’re expecting her to show plenty of fight.
Punters are getting each-way odds.
Race 5. (15:30) TAB BM70 (1100m)
#4 – He’s a Hotshot @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Bjorn Baker lines up the gelding that has won three of his seven starts and has placed in three.
The son of Star Witness ran third at Newcastle fresh up as a $41 chance and he’s at much shorter odds for this.
Nash Rawiller takes the ride from barrier 10 and it’s only going to require a good ride for He’s a Hotshot to go close.
Race 6. (16:10) Summer Cup (2000m)
#5 – Taikomochi @ $7 – Bet Now
Taikomochi looked good early on and is long overdue a winning turn. The six-year-old hasn’t won at his last six starts but that could all change here.
He ran a close fourth at Rosehill behind Alward last start and he won’t need to improve too much to figure in the finish.
Rachel King has been riding in good form of late and her judge of pace in staying events is very good.
He looks a good chance at the each-way odds.
Race 7. (16:50) Bowermans Office Furniture BM70 (1600m)
#2 – Mr Dependable @ $2.60 – Bet Now
Mr Dependable looks to have a nice future after posting two wins from four starts.
Trained by the Waterhouse/Bott team, the four-year-old son of Reliable Man looked good when winning at Rosehill.
That win came by 1.8 lengths where he was able to control the pace and kick clear in the straight.
Expect a similar ride from Nash Rawiller and he could start as the odds-on favourite come race day.
Race 8. (17:30) Sepoy @ Darley BM70 (1300m)
#5 – Judge Judi @ $7.50 – Bet Now
The Kim Waugh stable is in good form and Judge Judi kicked off her last campaign with a win.
She’s a five-year-old mare by Star Witness that has finished in the money in 13 of her 19 starts, and that form is tough to overlook.
We’re surprised at the odds on offer here and we wouldn’t be surprised to see punters come for her late in the betting.
