Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:30) Darley Handicap (1300m)
#7 – Overlord @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Overlord was beaten by Peltzer last start, but the Chris Waller-trained runner stormed home from the back of the field.
It was the run of a colt that should breakthrough soon and the well-bred son of Sebring has been well-backed to win.
He opened at $4.20 and those odds have been taken.
Race 2. (12:05) Tab Highway Handicap C3 (1000m)
#3 – Tejori @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Tejori sat on the pace and kicked too strongly to win last time out. She’s a good chance of winning three consecutive races and she only needs luck from the draw.
The daughter of Hinchinbrook makes her own luck by going forward, so expect jockey Kerrin McEvoy to be positive from the barriers.
Race 3. (12:40) Sporting Chance Foundation BM74 (2000m)
#5 – Reinvest @ $3.40 – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding is unbeaten after two starts and he could remain unbeaten. He scored at Wyong last start and although rising in grade, he’s bred to handle it.
He’s a son of Redoute’s Choice that has shown good barrier speed and he won’t have to do much work off the inside barrier.
Watch the betting for any late moves.
Race 4. (13:15) Tab Live Vision BM78 (2000m)
#1 – Yonkers @ $5 – Bet Now
Yonkers is worth sticking with after scoring a gutsy win last time out. The Waller-trained gelding held on by a nose at Randwick and although it’s his first start here, he should enjoy the track.
The shorter straight is ideal as he likes to roll forward and sit close to the pace. He has finished in the money in 11 of his 14 starts and that record can’t be ignored.
Race 5. (13:55) At Sea Handicap (1100m)
#3 – Coruscate @ $3.10 – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the five-year-old gelding that has five wins and eight placings from 18 starts. That’s a good record to date and he could add to it here.
His win at Bendigo three starts back was solid and he backed that up with placings at Caulfield. It’s form that should hold up well in Sydney.
Race 6. (14:30) Calyx @ Coolmore Australia BM78 (1500m)
#8 – Opacity @ $7.50 – Bet Now
Opacity produced a big run for fifth last start. He loomed to win but got stuck in the worst part of the track.
It is a good sign going forward and given that he won his three prior races, he’s good enough to win in this grade.
Hugh Bowman sticks with him and that’s another good sign.
Race 7. (15:10) Exceedance @ Vinery BM78 (1000m)
#13 – Switched @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Switched owns form around the likes of Lashes and Aquitaine, so she should be tough to beat in this grade. She also owns a placing behind Funstar, so the ability is there.
Getting into this race carrying 54kg is ideal and although it’s a tough field, the daughter of All Too Hard deserves respect.
$4.60 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 8. (15:50) Octagonal Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Dealmaker @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Dealmaker isn’t easy to follow but he has been knocking on the door his last two starts. They resulted in minor placings and dropping down in weight is a big help.
He carried 59.5kg last time out when second at Randwick, so carrying 55kg is ideal. It could be enough to see him win his third race.
$5.50 is a good price and we’re expecting that to shorten.
Race 9. (16:30) Sky Racing Active BM78 (1200m)
#9 – St Covet’s Spirit @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Knocking on the door of a win is St Covet’s Spirit, which launched late behind Dawn Passage last start. That form has since been franked and she has plenty of upside.
She might only be a one-race winner, but her form has come around some slick types, including Rubisaki and Funstar.
It bodes well for a big effort.
