Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (11:25) Winter Racing Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Yitai Synergy @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Peter and Paul Snowden line up the two-year-old filly which was a winner at Kembla Grange last time out.
That success was a fairly good effort and she has experience racing against some tough opposition throughout her career.
There are some nice types in this but she gets in with 54.5kg and she’s paying good odds with bookmakers.
Race 2. (12:00) Bradley Photographers BM74 (1800m)
#5 – Statuesquely – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott team has this three-year-old filly running nicely after posting consecutive wins coming into this.
She’s a well-bred daughter which scored by three lengths at Kembla Grange two back and did the job nicely at Warwick Farm by a short margin last start.
She owns good barrier speed, as they do from this stable, and she should use that to her advantage.
Race 3. (12:35) Tab Highway Handicap (1100m)
#9 – Madame Pauline – Bet Now
Beaten last start but she didn’t lose any admirers in being beaten by a nose to Lifesaver in what was a very close finish.
Prior to that, the four-year-old mare had won both career starts by a combined 2.5 lengths and she looks a nice Highway Handicap type in the making.
She’s well-bred by Redoute’s Choice and there’s plenty of upside to come for the rest of this season.
Race 4. (13:10) Australian Turf Club BM78 (2400m)
#5 – Raqeeq – Bet Now
Raqeeq has had awful luck this season but was seen rattling home at Randwick last start and should be tough to beat against this class.
The imported five-year-old for Chris Waller has been given terrible rides so far this season and has copped plenty of checks in the running. With a clean run throughout here, he should be able to run close.
Bookmakers should be offering each-way odds.
Race 5. (13:50) Nathan’s Famous BM78 (1200m)
#6 – Call Me Royal – Bet Now
Call Me Royal finally draws a decent barrier and she should prove tough to beat because of that. She lost no admirers when running second to England last time out either.
She’s a three-year-old filly which has finished out of the money in only one of her nine career starts and that consistency is tough to find in a filly.
The daughter of Sebring is a lovely type and she makes her own luck. She’s going to be tough to beat against this field.
Race 6. (14:30) Tab BM78 (1200m)
#5 – Dio D’oro – Bet Now
Dio D’oro might not be in the best form but if the track is in the soft to heavy range, expect a better performance.
The three-year-old colt is a three-time winner from 11 starts and two of those came on a heavy track. He showed plenty of promise early on but has since been a touch disappointing.
Rachel King will likely go forward and give each-way punters a good sight at nice odds.
Race 7. (15:10) June Stakes (1100m)
#9 – Deprive @ $1.95 – Bet Now
That was a huge win from Deprive at Randwick last start and we’re hardly surprised to see him short in the betting.
He was caught near the rear of the field and looked no chance of running the leaders down, but he sprouted wings late to score by almost a half-length.
The James Cummings-trained gelding improved his record to five wins from eight starts and he’s likely going to continue winning.
Race 8. (15:50) Racing To Win Handicap (1600m)
#5 – Star Of The Seas @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the extremely consistent gelding which has yet to miss a win or placing from 11 starts.
He has won five of his 11 starts and that includes a smart victory at Rosehill last start when coming from well off the pace in the straight.
He’s able to handle all track conditions and is unbeaten in the heavy, so any easing of the surface isn’t going to worry him.
Looks a good chance and the $4.40 should firm.
Race 9. (16:25) TLR Alexandria BM78 (1600m)
#11 – Semper Fidelis @ $8 – Bet Now
Semper Fidelis is coming off a second placing at Rosehill last time out and that form should stack up nicely for this.
The Waller-trained four-year-old has finished in the money in 13 of her 19 career starts and that record shouldn’t be overlooked.
Drawn well off barrier two and she should go close.
