Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:15) Schweppes BM78 (1100m)
#4 – Athiri – Bet Now
Athiri hasn’t won for some time now but the James Cummings-trained mare looks set to breakthrough.
She finished only a nose behind the winner at Randwick last start, and she gets the inside draw here with James McDonald in the saddle.
It’s an open field and punters should come for her throughout the week.
Race 2. (12:50) Tab Highway Handicap (1200m)
#12 – It’s Me – Bet Now
It’s Me scored one of the more impressive Highway Handicap wins in recent history last start. The mare scorched home to score by two lengths in a dominant fashion.
The four-year-old by Shamus Award will have to be good from the wide barrier, but her turn-of-foot is positive.
Look for her to be ridden patiently before being let down with a big late burst.
Race 3. (13:25) Quincy Seltzer BM72 (1300m)
#3 – Heart of the Oak – Bet Now
Heart of the Oak was beaten at Rosehill last start but she will enjoy the improved track conditions this time around.
The four-year-old mare owns two wins from four starts on a good surface and she deserves another chance.
This is a very hot field but punters should be able to get value each-way odds.
Race 4. (14:00) Concorde Stakes (1000m)
#2 – Gytrash @ $3.50 – Bet Now
Nature Strip opened as the short favourite at $1.40, but the value is with Gytrash. The five-year-old is a potent winner fresh up, with three wins from four attempts.
That is a much better fresh record compared to Nature Strip, and he owns four wins from five starts over the short-course distance.
He is an Everest runner that is out to make a good impression for slot holders on Saturday.
Race 5. (14:35) ATC Farewells Subzero BM94 (1500m)
#13 – Kinane – Bet Now
Kinane needed the run at Randwick last start and he was making good late ground over the unsuitable distance.
He is still rising to his preferred distance, but the 1500m is better and he is the class runner of this field.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding attracted a huge price from overseas investors, only to be turned down by his owners. That confidence could pay off here, as he warms up for bigger tasks this spring.
Race 6. (15:10) Furious Stakes (1200m)
#3 – Hungry Heart – Bet Now
Hungry Heart resumes following her fifth in the Golden Slipper and there is good confidence in betting markets.
The Waller-trained daughter of Frankel scored an impressive win at Randwick in February and she has looked good in recent trials.
James McDonald rides from barrier three and that could be enough to see her go close.
Race 7. (15:50) Heineken Chelmsford Stakes (1600m)
#8 – Shared Ambition @ $11 – Bet Now
Shared Ambition didn’t show much fresh up but he always improves with a run under the belt. He is unbeaten from two second-up starts, which is a good sign.
The son of Born to Sea is a past winner at Randwick and although there are some things going against him, he has upside.
It is another good ride for McDonald and he could have a big day.
Race 8. (16:30) Drinkwise Tramway Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Dreamforce @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Dreamforce could take advantage of a field that has plenty of stayers having their first run of the season.
The John Thompson-trained gelding is coming off a disappointing run at Randwick, but we’re prepared to give him another chance.
He is a five-time winner at Randwick and six-time winner at this distance. Those statistics don’t lie and he has the fitness on his side.
Race 9. (17:10) Bisley Workwear BM78 (1200m)
#2 – Masked Crusader – Bet Now
Most punters were forgiving of Masked Crusader running second last start and he should prove tough to beat here.
The Hawkes-trained four-year-old didn’t completely handle the wet track and he was beaten by a rock-hard fit Varda.
That form looks good for this race and we’re expecting him to return to winning form.
