Randwick Everest Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:30) Victory Vein Stakes (1000m)
#8 – Emerald Bay – Bet @ Sportsbet
Emerald Bay looked good winning a recent trial at Randwick and she could show the same pace on race day.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained filly scored by 2.8 lengths and Tim Clark sticks with her, which is another good sign.
Betting will indicate her ability, so watch for market moves.
Race 2. (13:05) Tab Highway C3 Handicap (1100m)
#16 – Mr Moppett – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Moppett has been in stellar form this season and we are confident of his chances again. The three-year-old has won his last two starts and three of five overall.
He races a rise in class for this race but with only 54kg and Tim Clark on his back, the son of Sizzling could be tough to beat.
It’s an open race so punters should get value.
Race 3. (13:30) The Star Mile (1600m)
#2 – Just Thinkin’ – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding maps nicely for this race having finished behind the likes of Kolding and Rock at his last two starts.
He is a three-time winner from 11 starts and drawing wide won’t be an issue. He’s an adaptable type that looks to have the class edge over this field.
Punters should get a good price and it is another quality ride for Tim Clark.
Race 4. (14:15) Tresemme Reginald Allen Quality (1400m)
#1 – Forbidden Love – Bet @ Sportsbet
Forbidden Love will find this easier than recent assignments and she has a nice future. She finished third behind Dame Giselle two back and followed that up with a third placing behind Wild Ruler.
It is top form for this level of racing and although rising from 54.5kg to 59kg for this race, she is the best filly in the race.
Tommy Berry rides and she should be firm with bookmakers.
Race 5. (14:50) The Kosciuszko (1200m)
#14 – It’s Me – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s Me is a star performer in this grade and she is the testing material in this race. The Brett Cavanough-trained mare has looked explosive in three wins, so there is plenty to like.
Getting into this race with only 53kg is a steal and we’re expecting a lot of money to come her way throughout the week.
Drawing barrier seven suits and in-form jockey Jason Collett rides.
Race 6. (15:25) Sydney Stakes (1200m)
#4 – Standout – Bet @ Sportsbet
Standout is the standout runner after finishing fifth in both starts this season. The talented four-year-old was fifth behind Libertini last start, which is one of the favourites for The Everest.
He looked better when finishing 1.9 lengths behind Classique Legend prior to that, so he is tough to beat and the attention should be on him.
There is only one last-start winner in this race (Prime Candidate), so punters shouldn’t worry about his lack of recent winning form.
Race 8. (16:50) Yulong Australia Craven Plate (2000m)
#1 – Avilius – Bet @ Sportsbet
Avilius is the class runner of this field and despite a lack of recent wins, the seven-year-old ran on well for second last start.
The James Cummings-trained gelding finished two lengths behind Kolding and that form looks good going forward.
He has been getting back in his races but he could easily finish over the top.
Race 9. (17:30) St Leger Stakes (2600m)
#3 – Attorney – Bet @ Sportsbet
Attorney is a handy stayer that scored a gutsy win at Rosehill last start and he could go back-to-back.
The son of Makfi is a four-time winner from 13 starts and although only lightly-tried throughout his career, he looks well-placed for this race.
Drawing barrier one is ideal and punters could get each-way odds.
Race 10. (18:10) Bowermans Furniture BM78 (1400m)
#3 – Best Stone – Bet @ Sportsbet
Best Stone showed good pace when scoring at Canterbury last start and her form looks solid enough for this race.
The John Thompson-trained four-year-old has been around the mark throughout her career, which consists of 13 starts for four wins and six placings.
Drawing barrier 12 makes it tough but she has winning claims.
