Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Hyland Boxing Day Sale Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Bartley @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Peter and Paul Snowden lines up the two-year-old colt that scored an easy win on debut.
That win came at Kembla Grange by 3.3 lengths and he was always going to be too good for that field.
He’s a son of Written Tycoon that has many more wins in store and the juveniles from this stable are firing this season.
Nice chance and nice odds.
Race 2. (13:35) Matt Jones BM78 (1200m)
#2 – Aquitaine @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Aquitaine has scored two quality wins this season and she is weighted perfectly to add another.
The James Cummings-trained filly scored by a length fresh up at Rosehill before going back-to-back at Randwick.
She gets in at 52.5kg and that’s 8kg less than the current favourite. She gives away some class but that’s a significant pull in the weights.
It will be interesting to see the betting come race day.
Race 3. (14:15) TAB Highway Handicap C3 (1100m)
#2 – Feel the Knight @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Feel the Knight is a three-time winner from seven starts that ran well for fourth last time out at Randwick.
He’s a four-year-old gelding that has experience winning a Highway Handicap at Randwick in October and that experience should take him a long way.
Drawing barrier 11 will make it hard but it doesn’t often matter in these races.
Race 4. (14:55) Schweppes BM72 (1600m)
#13 – Rocha Clock @ $3.40 – Bet Now
The last-start win from Rocha Clock had to be seen to be believed. She blew the start by five lengths but it didn’t matter as she scored by 1.3 lengths.
It was a dominant display from the daughter of Pierro which could be heading places.
She gets into this race with only 52.5kg on her back and although there are some nice types in this race, she is one of them.
Race 5. (15:35) Sky Racing Active BM78 (1400m)
#11 – Bandersnatch @ $2.65 – Bet Now
Bandersnatch has improved significantly this season with two dominant wins.
The Gerald Ryan-trained three-year-old scored by 3.5 lengths at Hawkesbury before doubling down and winning by three lengths at Randwick.
The son of Casino Prince has come of age this time in and he looks a top chance of winning again.
Carrying only 54.5kg should see him fight out the finish.
Race 6. (16:15) Ranvet BM78 (1200m)
#8 – Superium @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Superium is a quality three-year-old and that was evident by his last start win at Randwick.
The son of Verrazano defeated a quality field with a big burst of speed and that’s going to see him win plenty of races.
There is plenty of hype surrounding this runner and we’re expecting his odds of $2.90 to shorten into around $2.20.
Drawn to get every chance off an inside barrier and Nash Rawiller in the saddle.
Race 7. (16:55) Christmas Classic (1200m)
#3 – Signore Fox @ $3.10 – Bet Now
That was an impressive win from Signore Fox at Randwick last start. Although he scored by only a nose, he made up huge ground in the straight.
The seven-time winner has scored two wins from three starts this season and he’s heading in the right direction.
Drawing barrier 11 will see Tommy Berry drop him to the back again, but look for him to be storming home late.
$3.10 is a good enough quote to take.
Race 8. (17:35) Heineken 3 BM88 (1600m)
#8 – Something Fast @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Something Fast has won four from seven starts and he’s coming off a 2.5-length win at Randwick.
The five-year-old by Smart Missile could continue to rise through the grades and he’s going to get every chance from barrier five.
There isn’t much between the majority of this field but he has the most upside and that could be telling over the concluding stages.
Punters should be happy to take the $3.40.
Race 9. (18:15) TAB BM78 (1800m)
#8 – Chocolatier @ $5 – Bet Now
Chocolatier has been around the mark in eight of his 11 career starts to date and he could add another to his record.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained son of Redoute’s Choice finished well for third at Canterbury last start and a change of scenery could see him improve.
This will be his first run at Randwick and it’s a track he should enjoy.
