Randwick horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:00) J Howe Big Sports Breaky Maiden (1100m)
#7 – Oh Say @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oh Say didn’t handle the heavy conditions on debut, so we are prepared to give the filly another chance.
The Hawkes-trained three-year-old finished fifth and only 2.8 lengths behind the winner, so she wasn’t too far away.
Her trial form since has consisted of a second placing at Rosehill and there has been plenty of money come her way throughout the week.
Race 2. (14:35) S Flanagan Sports Breaky BM68 (1400m)
#1 – Already Blessed @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters got the cash when Already Blessed last start and he is worth sticking with. The three-year-old won narrowly at Gosford and the claim of Tom Sherry was a big factor.
Sherry rides here and his 3kg allowance takes Already Blessed down to 58.5kg, where he should be competitive.
The son of Better Than Ready has yet to miss a win or placing this season, so the odds of $7 is an excellent value price.
Race 3. (15:10) Heineken BM72 (1550m)
#4 – Bethencourt @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bethencourt was classy at Wyong last start and the four-year-old gelding could repeat the dose at Randwick.
Trained by Kim Waugh, the son of Puissance De Lune burst through runners to win and rising in distance holds no fears this week.
Tommy Berry takes the ride and he has been in good form this season, so don’t expect the $2.10 to last very long.
Race 4. (15:50) City Tattersalls Club BM72 (1550m)
#1 – Le Gai Soleil @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare looked good winning three consecutive races last season and that form is good for this race.
She is a John O’Shea-trained mare that didn’t handle the heavy track last start but her trial form since has been solid.
Her fresh up form reads well and the $1.90 is warranted. She is the class runner of this field and it’s another good ride for Tommy Berry.
Race 5. (16:30) Quayclean BM72 (1800m)
#5 – Aspect Ratio @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aspect Ratio has been in solid form this campaign, which includes a win and two placings. The John Sargent-trained mare scored at Wyong and that came by 3.8 lengths.
Her subsequent run at Canterbury was a solid effort behind Invinciano and we are expecting that form to stack up well this season.
Drawing barrier two helps her chances and punters are getting odds worth taking.
Race 6. (17:10) Happy 30th Hawk BM72 (1000m)
#7 – Belluci Babe @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Belluci Babe has shown her ability with two wins from three starts. Her most recent win came at Hawkesbury where she was 1.5 lengths better than the field.
The smart mare by Per Incanto still has some growing to do and that holds her in good stead against this level of opposition.
Punters will have to take short odds but she should be able to justify them.
Race 7. (17:50) Tab Long May We Play BM72 (1400m)
#3 – Bigboyroy @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bigboyroy hasn’t raced since July but the Chris Waller-trained gelding finds form quickly in his campaign.
The son of Dissident has had four fresh up starts for four placings, and although yet to win, it’s only a matter of time.
He has two wins and 10 placings from 16 starts overall, so expect another tidy effort from the each-way runner.
