The Kosciuszko Form Guide & Tips


1. Handle the Truth ($4.80) Bet @ Sportsbet

The current favourite after taking on the likes of Eduardo and Nature Strip last time out. That form bodes well, but he will need to improve on his form.

Keep safe as the betting markets suggest.

2. Front Page (Best Each Way – $7.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

Second at Moonee Valley last start behind Lombardo. That form stacks up nicely for The Kosciuszko, so we’re not leaving him out of calculations.

A four-time winner at the distance, so the $7.50 available is worth taking.

3. Art Cadeau ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to finish worse than second from 11 starts, which is an incredible effort. Goes well fresh up and it’s unbeaten in two starts at Randwick.

Barrier three is ideal and he can’t be left out of calculations.

4. Plonka ($35) Bet @ Sportsbet

Not running his best form and that’s reflected in the betting. Yet to fire at Randwick, so we can’t find a spot for him.

5. Aheadofhistime ($67) Bet @ Sportsbet

Scored back-to-back wins before running third last start. That form is unlikely to be good enough for this race.

6. Spiranac ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

She got the job done nicely at Bathurst and having James McDonald in the saddle is a positive.

55.5kg on her back helps, and although yet to fire at Randwick, she is a runner worth including in first four calculations.

7. Edit (Best Bet – $5.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

The former Kiwi showed his ability when storming home to win at Tamworth last start. The two-length win was superb, and his form in New Zealand was excellent.

Barrier 11 doesn’t help, but with Hugh Bowman in the saddle, he should be tough to beat.

8. Ice in Vancouver ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

Unbeaten fresh up, so punters should be worried about the lack of fitness. Yet to fire in two starts at Randwick, so a win would be a surprise.

9. Island Bay Boy ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

A winner of four from eight starts, including two at this distance. Meets a tough field here, but it wouldn’t be a huge shock to see him winning.

10. Nadaraja (Best Roughie – $14) Bet @ Sportsbet

Shooting for four consecutive wins after scoring his last three wins at Scone. He won by 2.8 lengths as an odds-on favourite last start, so $14 is a generous price.

Barrier two is another positive, so keep him safe.

11. Mr Hussill ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

He hasn’t finished worse than third from six starts, so he’s a consistent runner. Goes well at Randwick, so include him in first four bets.

12. Ceasefire ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

Nothing wrong with scoring three wins from four starts, but he has yet to be tested against this level of opposition.

Gets recent Group 1 winning jockey Robbie Dolan in the saddle, but we’re prepared to leave him out at the odds.

13. Patino Ruby ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet

Had every chance to win last start and she didn’t produce the goods late. Talented enough on her day, and she has been specked at odds, but we’re taking the risk and leaving her out.

14. Sunrise Ruby ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

Three consecutive wins to open her campaign. Unbeaten in four starts at the distance, and one start at Randwick.

Carrying 53kg is ideal, and punters get value odds. She should be right in the mix.

15. Irish Songs ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Drawn wide and he has handled wet tracks in the past. He can be tough to follow, and the odds are spot on.

16. Another One ($71) Bet @ Sportsbet

He owns a win and a placing from three starts at Randwick. He is a four-time winner from 10 starts, but this field has some smart types.

17. Tim’s Principal ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

As the odds suggest, he is unlikely to trouble them if he gets a run.

18. Kattegat ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Another runner who is unlikely to get a run.
