Randwick horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) Admire Mars at Arrowfield Maiden (1100m)
#9 – Governor @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Hawkes-trained two-year-old has looked good at the trials and the colt could make a winning start.
He comes off a trial win at Canterbury in heavy conditions and he is bred to be better than average. The son of I Am Invincible should be well-favoured to win in what is an open age-group contest.
Barrier six is ideal and Tommy Berry takes the ride, so the $4.80 is worth taking.
Race 2. (13:25) Darley Supporting Catwalk Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Laurelin @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old filly finished sixth on debut but it came behind Four Moves Ahead and that is some serious competition.
James Cummings lines up the daughter of Lonhro that has since won a trial at Gosford by 3.8 lengths and that is a good sign for her return.
Barrier 15 doesn’t help, but she gets James McDonald in the saddle and he could make the difference.
Race 3. (14:00) Sky Racing BM72 (1550m)
#6 – Canadian Spice @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Canadian Spice missed the jump last start but she made impressive ground in the straight and she looms as a winning contender.
The Chris Waller-trained daughter of Vancouver owns two wins and six placings from 18 starts, so she’s never too far away and she handles wet conditions.
Having James McDonald booked to ride is a bonus and if she jumps on terms with them, so could get the chocolates.
Race 4. (14:35) Tab BM72 (1300m)
#7 – Kinloch @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kinloch was scratched from a harder race on Saturday and the three-year-old looks well-placed here.
The Kris Lees-trained son of I Am Invincible owns two wins from six starts and he has yet to finish worse than second in two starts at Randwick.
Hugh Bowman rides and we’re expecting a big effort. We’re happy with the $3.70 available and those odds could shorten throughout the week.
Race 5. (15:10) Heineken BM72 (1800m)
#10 – Peekays Legacy @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Peter and Paul Snowden line up the son of Nicconi that has been running in career-best form this season.
The three-year-old scored back-to-back wins at Kembla Grange and Hawkesbury before running third at Warwick Farm in heavy conditions last start.
He is unbeaten in soft track conditions and we’re expecting his odds to firm considerably on race day, so take the $5 available.
Race 6. (15:45) China Horse Club BM72 (1550m)
#2 – Hit the Target @ $9 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters get value with Hit the Target, who owns seven wins from 27 starts and although yet to race at Randwick, he must be respected.
The son of Uncle Mo has won twice already this preparation and he comes off an open-class placing at Grafton earlier this month.
2kg comes off his back with Brock Ryan in the saddle and that should see him right around the mark.
Race 7. (16:20) Vinery Stud BM72 (1100m)
#3 – Irish Angel @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Irish Angel is always around the mark and that’s evident by her form this preparation. The daughter of Not a Single Doubt owns two wins and four placings from her last six starts, which is tough to overlook.
She won at Canterbury by two lengths before running 1.3 lengths behind Magic Ruler last start and this field is no harder.
It’s another good ride for Hugh Bowman and she’s a genuine wet tracker, so conditions are ideal.
