Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:05) Schweppes Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Honeycreeper @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The James Cummings-trained filly scored at Newcastle fresh up and something similar would be good enough.
She followed it up with a fourth at Rosehill behind Tycoonist, which is strong form for this level of racing and we’re not surprised by the odds.
Barrier five is ideal and we’re confident of a big run.
Race 2. (11:40) Tab Highway C2 Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Private Agent – Bet @ Sportsbet
Private Agent scored on debut before meeting some tough fields, but he could return in fine order on Saturday.
The Kurt Goldman-trained gelding was beaten as a $1.30 chance at Goulburn, but his recent trials have been solid and he should produce a good run.
Having James McDonald in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 3. (12:15) The Agency Real Estate BM72 (1200m)
#13 – Bubbly Lass – Bet @ Sportsbet
Getting down in the weights is Bubbly Lass, which has been racing consistently in Melbourne and that form bodes well.
The Maher/Eustace-trained filly comes off a second placing at Caulfield and she always runs well at this distance, so she can’t be overlooked.
54.5kg is ideal and Jason Collett rides.
Race 4. (12:50) City Tattersalls Club BM78 (1800m)
#1 – Zing – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zing scored an overdue win at Rosehill last start and she’s capable of repeating the dose. It was her fourth career win and she handled the conditions well.
The Waller-trained daughter of Zoustar appreciates the sting out of the track and there are no superstars in this field, so she could take advantage.
Look for each-way odds on race day.
Race 5. (13:25) Elite Sand & Soil BM78 (1600m)
#4 – Papal Warrior – Bet @ Sportsbet
Papal Warrior has found form with back-to-back wins and he’s finally living up to lofty expectations.
The Waller-trained gelding had only one win from 18 starts, but he now has three wins to go along with his eight minor placings.
Kerrin McEvoy rides and he can get the better of this field.
Race 6. (14:00) Midway BM72 (1200m)
#4 – Henschel – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value should be with Henschel, which has already scored two wins this preparation. The four-year-old comes off a dominant win at Kembla Grange, which bodes well.
He scored by 2.5 lengths over a subsequent Highway Handicap winner, so the form stacks up and this isn’t the hardest field to beat.
3kg comes off his back and he gets the inside draw.
Race 7. (14:40) ACY Securities BM88 (1800m)
#1 – Opacity @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Opacity scored a brilliant win two back at Randwick and although beaten at Rosehill, he didn’t have all favours in the run.
The John O’Shea-trained gelding rises up in weight, but Tom Sherry takes 2kg off his back to help with the allotted 60kg.
Punters get value odds and we’re happy with the $6.50.
Race 8. (15:20) Bowermans Furniture BM88 (1400m)
#4 – Oscar Zulu @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oscar Zulu is shooting for four consecutive wins and we wouldn’t be betting against him here.
The Waller-trained three-year-old owns five wins from 12 starts and his latest win at Rosehill was classy. He won by 1.3 lengths and it came in this grade, so he shouldn’t find it much harder.
Barrier five is ideal and punters get each-way odds.
Race 9. (16:00) Tax Today BM78 (1400m)
#1 – Expat @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Expat continues to win and after scoring at her last two starts she now owns five wins from eight starts.
The three-year-old daughter of Makfi handles conditions perfectly and she’s unbeaten in heavy conditions, so the track is no worry.
Rising in weight is the only concern, but punters should be confident.
Race 10. (16:35) Heineken BM78 (1000m)
#5 – Triple Ace – Bet @ Sportsbet
Triple Ace has yet to miss a win or placing from eight starts and that consistency is what punters love to see.
The Lees-trained three-year-old owns four wins and his return for third at Rosehill behind Madam Legend is a good sign.
He only needs luck from the draw to figure in the finish.
