Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:20) Ranvet Handicap (1150m)
#7 – Secret Revolution @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Secret Revolution has been backed in from an opening quote of $10, which is a serious betting move.
The Snowden-trained colt had support on debut but nothing went right. He has since won a trial at Wyong by 3.3 lengths, which bodes well.
He has a lot to learn but respect the betting move.
Race 2. (12:55) Tab Highway C3 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Still in Fashion @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Still in Fashion doesn’t know how to run a bad race with seven starts for a win and five placings.
The four-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice hasn’t won from three attempts this preparation, but he should be ready to fire here.
Dropping to 51.5kg makes him awfully tough to beat.
Race 3. (13:30) Heineken 3 BM78 (2400m)
#5 – Black Queen @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Black Queen is a consistent runner for Chris Waller and she like her chances of running in the money.
She already owns three wins and three placings this preparation, including a gritty second placing last start at Warwick Farm.
Carrying 55.5kg is ideal and punters get each-way odds.
Race 4. (14:05) Midway BM72 (1100m)
#3 – Prince Invincible @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Prince Invincible hasn’t been at his best his last three starts, but his form prior included consecutive wins.
The Gary Moore-trained gelding has yet to race at Randwick, but the track shouldn’t be a problem for the versatile type.
3kg comes off his back and that brings him into contention.
Race 5. (14:40) The Agency Real Estate BM78 (1100m)
#4 – Celestine @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Celestine owns three wins from six starts and she is a mare worth following this season.
The Matthew Dale-trained daughter of Nicconi comes off some solid efforts at Flemington, but she hasn’t raced since last summer.
The early betting support is a good sign, so include her in selections.
Race 6. (15:20) Maroubra Mile BM100 (1550m)
#4 – Kirwan’s Lane @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We love the way Kirwan’s Lane fought all the way to the line when scoring at Randwick last week.
The five-year-old justified his favourtism tag and he has been well-supported again, which isn’t surprising.
Dropping to 54kg is a steal and he could go back-to-back.
Race 7. (16:00) Schweppes BM78 (1000m)
#4 – Dragonstone @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dragonstone was beaten by a subsequent winner last start, so his form checks out at top levels.
The Mark Newnham-trained three-year-old has yet to finish worse than third from five starts, so punters always get a good sight.
With the 3kg claimer in the saddle, he should be right in the mix once again.
Race 8. (16:40) ACY Securities BM78 (1550m)
#1 – Toomuchtobear @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the son of Press Statement, who was too slick for them at Randwick last time out.
He hit the line impressively to down them on the line, and if the pace is strong up front, he should be right around the mark again.
Dropping in weight helps and most of the early money has come his way.
Race 9. (17:20) Petaluma BM72 (1300m)
#8 – Kanazawa @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Cummings-trained runner did the job on debut at Warwick Farm and he could kick on with it.
He is a well-bred son of Lonhro who scored by a half-length after knuckling down over the last 200m. It was a nice effort going forward.
Punters get value odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 10. (18:00) Sharp Extensive It BM78 (1300m)
#5 – Queen Bellissimo @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Queen Bellissimo has been good to punters with five wins from eight starts, including a win at Randwick last start.
The daughter of Swiss Ace should get every chance from barrier five and she handles the sting out of the surface.
It’s not an easy field, but she could end the day on a high for punters.
