Everest Day Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:30) Fujitsu General BM78 (1400m)
#2 – Ventura Ocean @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Early has come for Ventura Queen, who opened at $11 and was backed into $7 within an hour of markets opening.
The Kris Lees-trained runner is overdue a winning turn, and he will find this much easier than running behind Ellsberg last start.
Hugh Bowman rides and punters are still getting value odds, so the six-year-old should be right around the mark.
Race 2. (13:05) The Star Mile (1600m)
#10 – High Supremacy @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding looked good winning fresh up at Randwick before getting a little unlucky last week behind Aim and Ellsberg.
He has finished in the money in six of his 10 starts, so he’s consistent, and some of his best races have come at Randwick.
Carrying 52kg is ideal and we’re expecting his odds to firm.
Race 3. (13:40) Tab Highway C3 Handicap (1100m)
#2 – Ahead Start @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Runners from the Danny Williams stable are always well-favoured to win Highway Handicaps, and Ahead Start is no different.
The four-year-old son of Dream Ahead owns three wins from six starts, including a win and a placing on this track.
He’s a smart type and having James McDonald in the saddle won’t do his chances any harm.
Race 4. (14:15) Bisley Workwear Reginald Allen (1400m)
#10 – Roots @ $21 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roots faces a tough ask at only her second career start, but the Chris Waller-trained filly runs at generous odds.
She scored by a half-length at Goulburn on debut after hitting the line nicely, and that form could stack up in bigger races.
55kg on her back helps and punters get each-way odds worth taking against a tough field.
Race 6. (15:25) Moet & Chandon Sydney Stakes (1200m)
#3 – Standout @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Standout is on the ballot for The Everest, but he might be better served running against this level of opposition.
The five-year-old son of Exceed and Excel is a four-time winner from 15 starts, and although he hasn’t shown his best form this year, he’s better than advertised.
Second behind Masked Crusader is good form, so stick with him.
Race 8. (16:50) Yulong Craven Plate (2000m)
#1 – Think It Over @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We have loved the form of Think It Over this season, which includes two wins and a third placing behind Verry Elleegant.
The Kerry Parker-trained six-year-old owns five wins at Randwick with five placings, so he doesn’t know how to run a bad race on the track.
Class will take him a long way in this race, so we’re happy with the $2.20 available. It’s a fair price for a very smart horse.
Race 9. (17:30) Bentley St Leger Stakes (2600m)
#5 – Young Rascal @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Following Young Rascal can be tough, but we loved his run for second at Rosehill last start behind Entente.
He will need to beat Entente again here, but the seven-year-old can turn the tables with the right run in transit.
$8.50 is well worth the risk, so include him.
Race 10. (18:10) Heineken 3 BM78 (1400m)
#8 – Promise of Success @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We expect plenty of betting support for Promise of Success, who has already won twice this preparation.
The John O’Shea-trained mare ran second behind Head Legislator last start, but she should have finished closer. She still has plenty to learn, but she’s good enough to stick with.
Her odds will likely firm to around $2 on race day.
