We have expert betting tips for the card this Saturday at Randwick, which features nine quality betting races.
We are loving the racing coming out of Randwick this Saturday. Names such as Avilius, Libertini and Te Akau Shark will all be in action.
It’s one of the better meetings so far this year and we can’t wait!
Randwick free tips & form
Race 1. (12:10) Strawberry Hill Stud BM72 (1300m)
#2 – Pandemic – Bet Now
This is a hot field but Pandemic looked better than your average thoroughbred when winning last time out.
The James Cummings-trained three-year-old was a blistering 1.3-length winner at Randwick last start and it was a statement win.
Godolphin are firing on all cylinders at the moment and Pandemic is another potential top liner.
Race 2. (12:50) TAB Highway Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Logan River – Bet Now
Logan River is rarely too far away from the prize and he should go close against this field.
The Mitchell Beer-trained gelding comes into this having finished fourth at Warwick Farm last start and that city experience is a bonus.
Drawing wide hurts but they often come wide in these races.
Race 3. (13:25) Might And Power For CPA BM78 (1100m)
#10 – Catwalk – Bet Now
Catwalk looks a nice type in the making following her win at Randwick last time out. That came over a good field and the form should stack up nicely.
The daughter of Foxwedge drops right down in weight to 52kg here and that brings her right into contention.
Betting will be a good indicator but we’re expecting good money to come for the Chris Waller-trained filly.
Race 4. (14:00) Sydney Markets BM78 (1200m)
#3 – Baller – Bet Now
The Anthony Cummings-trained runner finished eighth last start but that came at Group 3 level.
This is a significant drop back in class for the four-year-old and we’re confident of his chances here.
Nash Rawiller takes the ride and given his best form of three wins from nine starts, he could return to winning form in this.
Race 5. (14:35) Darley Furious Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Libertini @ $1.15 – Bet Now
We’re getting into “Winx odds” territory now but the filly looks like a Group 1 winner in the making.
The Cummings-trained three-year-old has been in blistering form winning her last three starts. They have all come in fine style and none more so than her most recent effort.
She cruised home to win at Group 2 level at Randwick last start and she’s a very smart filly in the making.
Race 6. (15:10) Concorde Stakes (1000m)
#6 – Zoustyle @ $5.50 – Bet Now
The Concorde Stakes is a mini-Everest this season and what a field on display.
We’ve gone with the unbeaten Zoustyle, which could show the more favoured runners a thing or two.
Trained by Tony Gollan, Zoustyle has won all six starts so far and has done so in fine style.
He has beaten some nice types along the way and although this will be his ultimate test so far, he looks capable of handling it.
Expect money to come throughout the week.
Race 7. (15:50) Chelmsford Stakes (1600m)
#1 – Avilius @ $2 – Bet Now
Avilius was beaten last start but far from disgraced when finishing fourth in the Winx Stakes.
The Godolphin runner is a winner of 10 from 19 starts and he has bigger races in sight later this spring.
The race wasn’t quite run to suit over 1400m last start and stretching out to the mile with that run under his belt looks ideal.
$2 is on the shorter side of value but he’s the best horse in this race by far.
Race 8. (16:30) Tramway Stakes (1400m)
#2 – Te Akau Shark @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Te Akau Shark is the boom runner from New Zealand and although wanting a dry track, he looks a big chance here.
The Jamie Richards-trained gelding finished second in the Tarzino Trophy last start but was making big ground from the back of the field.
It was a much better run than it looked and this Epsom Handicap favourite should be beating fields of this nature.
If he’s as good as they think he is, he could score this with ease.
Race 9. (17:10) Nexon BM94 (1500m)
#17 – Roheryn – Bet Now
Dented his consistent form line when running sixth last start but he was never going to win from that far back.
The James Cummings-trained gelding had won three of his first four starts prior to that and punters should go on that form.
He’s classy at best and if Kerrin McEvoy can find a spot closer to the pace, he’ll be tough to beat with only 53kg on the back.
