Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:40) Everest Carnival on Sale Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Bazooka @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Bazooka doesn’t have the best form entering this race but the two-year-old could score a minor upset.
He has been respected in the betting despite running eighth at Randwick last start, so that is a good sign for punters.
His maiden win at Warwick Farm was full of merit and if he brings that same mindset, he could be tough to stop.
Race 2. (12:15) Tab Highway Handicap (1100m)
#4 – Mr Magical @ $5 – Bet Now
Looking to remain unbeaten is Mr Magical, which scored by 2.3 lengths at Nowra last time out. The Jamie Stewart-trained gelding has shown good barrier speed to date, which is always good to have.
He meets a much stronger field at Randwick on Saturday but punters are getting each-way odds. They are worth taking and his perfect record could remain intact.
Race 3. (12:50) De Bortoli Wines BM74 (1100m)
#3 – Tailleur @ $1.90 – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old filly that is coming off a gritty victory at Randwick. She dug deep to score and stay unbeaten after two starts, so another win could be on the cards.
It backed up her debut win at Gosford which came by four lengths and drawing barrier five should see her land close to the pace.
We are not surprised by the short odds offered by bookmakers.
Race 4. (13:25) Schweppes BM78 (1800m)
#3 – Orcein @ $5 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the four-year-old gelding that is coming off some solid performances. He won at Rosehill two starts back and followed that up with a second placing last start.
He made good ground to finish only a length behind Edison and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely this season.
$5 is worth taking and those odds could shorten come race day.
Race 5. (14:00) Quincy Seltzer BM94 (1800m)
#1 – Frankely Awesome @ $5 – Bet Now
Frankley Awesome was exactly that when scoring at Rosehill last start and he has a nice future ahead of him.
The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old is a three-time winner that rises up in weight following the win, but he’s not facing harder opposition.
His odds should remain steady throughout the week and the $5 is worth snapping up.
Race 6. (14:40) Sky Racing Active BM88 (1400m)
#3 – Thy Kingdom Come @ $6 – Bet Now
Thy Kingdom Come missed the jump at Doomben last start and that put pay to his chances. He showed what he can do when he jumps at Eagle Farm two starts back, so expect a better showing.
The son of Lope de Vega has a superior turn-of-foot on his day and he runs well at Randwick with four starts for a win and two placings.
We will happily take the $6 on offer and the $2.10 to place is also value.
Race 7. (15:20) Tab Live Vision BM78 (1000m)
#4 – Spaceboy @ $2.70 – Bet Now
Spaceboy has turned consistent form into winning form with consecutive wins at Wyong and Randwick.
The Gary Portelli-trained three-year-old scored by 4.8 lengths at Wyong and backed that up with a 2.3-length success last time out.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and he should be competitive once again.
Race 8. (16:00) Ranvet BM78 (1400m)
#7 – Strawb @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Strawb owns four wins from six starts and although they have come in easier grades, she looks like a nice type in the making.
The well-bred daughter of Fastnet Rock scored by 3.3 lengths at Newcastle and there was plenty to like about that effort.
Rising in class will make it harder but it’s hard not to like her current form.
Race 9. (16:40) Heineken 3 BM78 (1550m)
#11 – Le Gai Soleil @ $1.70 – Bet Now
Le Gai Soleil could be a rising star after scoring three consecutive wins. The John O’Shea-trained filly won by three lengths at Randwick last start and that is an excellent form guide.
It was her second consecutive win by more than three lengths, so she has putting fields to the sword and she could do the same here.
$1.70 is short but she is a godo multibet inclusion.
