Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:00) Tab Highway C2 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Bootscooter – Bet @ Neds
Bootscooter scored back-to-back wins at Scone and Newcastle before finishing second at Randwick last time out.
The three-year-old filly didn’t lose any admirers with the performance and we like her chances of getting back to winning form.
2kg comes off her back to help with the weight.
Race 2. (11:35) Schweppes BM72 (1600m)
#4 – Indifference – Bet @ Neds
Indifference is seeking three consecutive wins after scoring at Goulburn and Newcastle, which were fine displays.
The James Cummings-trained three-year-old scored by a half-length and we like his chances of kicking on with it.
Racing in wet conditions holds no fears and punters could get each-way odds.
Race 3. (12:10) Midway BM72 (1100m)
#8 – Conrad – Bet @ Neds
The Kim Waugh-trained is a noted fresh up performer and he could hit the ground running this preparation.
He owns two wins and two placings from six starts, so he has made a nice start to his career and only the wide barrier draw is against him.
Because of the wide draw, punters should get value odds on race day.
Race 4. (12:45) Precise Air BM72 (1300m)
#11 – Pretty Wild – Bet @ Neds
Chris Waller lines up the three-year-old filly who won impressively on debut at Warwick Farm.
She scored by 2.8 lengths in emphatic fashion, and although she faces a much stronger field here, she looks like a nice type in the making.
Barrier two is ideal and she could run at generous odds.
Race 5. (13:20) Quayclean BM78 (1800m)
#3 – Comme Bella Fille @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
Comme Bella Fille was too good for a similar field last start when beating Niffler and she could win again at each-way odds.
The John O’Shea-trained four-year-old owns five wins and four placings from 14 starts, so she’s consistent and good enough to win again.
2kg comes off her back to weight with the big weight.
Race 6. (13:55) Furphy Stayer’s Cup (2600m)
#2 – Bonny Ezra @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds
Bonny Ezra has been a model of consistency this preparation and we expect another tidy effort from the former Kiwi.
Now with Chris Waller, the six-year-old gelding has won at Scone in heavy conditions before notching back-to-back placings at Randwick and Rosehill.
He doesn’t have to do much work off the inside draw, so include.
Race 7. (14:30) ACY Securities BM88 (1800m)
#1 – Bethencourt – Bet @ Neds
Bethencourt almost got home last start and he will enjoy racing against this level of opposition.
The Waugh-trained gelding didn’t fire two back at Rosehill but his best form comes at Randwick, where he has yet to finish worse than second.
The apprentice claim helps and it brings him into contention.
Race 8. (15:05) Chandon Civic Stakes (1400m)
#17 – Battleton @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds
Battleton is looking to cap off three consecutive placings and we fancy his chances of getting the job done.
The three-year-old son of Zoustar ran second at Eagle Farm behind Kiss Sum and that’s excellent form for this race.
Dropping to 53kg is another reason to back him.
Race 9. (15:45) Petaluma BM78 (1100m)
#2 – Snowzone – Bet @ Neds
Snowzone is an experienced five-year-old gelding who owns eight wins from 40 starts and he could add another to his record.
The Kris Lees-trained gelding ran second at Randwick last start, which was his first attempt on the track, which bodes well.
He drops in weight from the claim and he could pay a handsome price.
Race 10. (16:25) Elite Sand & Soil BM78 (1400m)
#4 – Jojo Was a Man – Bet @ Neds
Jojo Was a Man is already a two-time winner this preparation and he could add another.
The John Thompson-trained gelding owns four wins from 12 starts and punters often get value odds. He won paying $8.50 last start, so he could drift out again.
Getting weight off his back helps and we’re sticking with.
