Randwick horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Crop Magna Grecia Maiden (1400m)
#6 – Profondo @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
There has been steady money for Profondo after opening at $2.80, so he’s a colt worth following in the opener.
The Richard Litt-trained three-year-old won three trials to prepare for his debut, including one at Randwick and two at Warwick Farm.
The market confidence is a good sign, and we expect his odds to continue to shorten.
Race 2. (14:00) Buy @ Irish Sales Online BM72 (2400m)
#4 – Terwilliker @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Anthony Cummings lines up the seven-year-old who is getting close to a win. The son of Pierro finished second on this track three back before placing twice at Randwick.
He was 3.8 lengths behind Torrens last start, but he had to do the chasing and it was still a good effort to run second.
Having Hugh Bowman in the saddle helps and we think punters are getting generous odds for the strength of this field.
Race 3. (14:35) Heineken BM64 (1150m)
#6 – Journalism @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We were impressed with Journalism’s debut win at Hawkesbury and he’s a colt worth following this season.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained son of I Am Invincible carried plenty of betting support on that occasion, and punters get better odds this time around.
Barrier four should see jockey Tim Clark push forward and he’s the one they’ll need to catch.
Race 4. (15:10) The Agency Real Estate BM72 (1550m)
#6 – Gunga Din @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-time winner hasn’t lived up to expectations, but he’s capable of returning to his best form on Wednesday.
He is a son of Shamexpress that finished fourth at Goulburn last start, which was a solid indication that he could get back to his best.
He placed in his only attempt at Randwick and after opening at $9, there have been strong market moves. It also helps having a 3kg claimer in the saddle.
Race 5. (15:45) Vinery Stud BM72 (1300m)
#9 – Morioka @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the three-year-old filly that owns four placings from four starts, so she’s a maiden running in higher classes.
However, she drops back from open company at Doomben and she finished second behind Socialist at Canterbury prior to that.
Having James McDonald in the saddle from barrier two is perfect, so we expect her odds to firm considerably throughout the week.
Race 6. (16:20) Earthlight @ Darley BM72 (1300m)
#11 – Park Avenue @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Park Avenue started his career with consecutive wins at Wyong and Randwick before running third at Randwick behind Verne.
It’s good form for a three-year-old and he has since won a trial at Randwick, so the form points towards another top effort on Wednesday.
We’re surprised the son of Fastnet Rock opened at $8, but he has been backed into $5, which is a better indication of his talent.
Race 7. (16:55) Tab BM72 (1000m)
#8 – Sky Command @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sky Command is another runner that scored consecutive wins to open her career. She was well-beaten by Paulele at Randwick last start, but this is a massive drop in class.
The daughter of Deep Field won her second start by two lengths at Randwick, and it came on a rain-affected surface. Conditions are ideal on Wednesday, and she could get back to her best.
It’s another good ride for McDonald, so expect a bounce back effort.
