The Metropolitan Form Guide & Tips


1. Spirit Ridge ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get value odds for Spirit Ridge, but he has been a touch inconsistent of late. The ability is there, but carrying 58kg could be too much of an ask.

3. Quick Thinker ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

He can never be left out of calculations and he enters trifecta selections. Much better when second last start and that should be a good form guide.

4. Dashing Willoughby ($67) Bet @ Sportsbet

He has had his chances since arriving in Australia, but is yet to take them. Better suited to this race, but there is no confidence in markets.

5. Angel of Truth ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

He is only a one-time winner at Randwick from 12 starts, which is a big concern. Didn’t fire a shot at Caulfield last start, so we’re prepared to leave him out.

6. Mirage Dancer ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

Never too far away from the mark, but he would need to improve on his recent form to warrant attention.

He lacks class at times, so the $21 is a touch short for our liking.

7. Warning ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

A stayer who will be hitting the line nicely. Didn’t fire fresh up, but it should appreciate the run under its belt.

Consider at the odds.

8. Montefilia ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet

Well-backed to win after she finished hard behind She’s Ideel. That should be a good form guide and she only needs early luck from the draw.

9. Attorney ($20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Hard to judge his form, but he ran better for sixth last time out. A progressive type who can’t be overlooked.

10. Le Don De Vie ($20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to race at Randwick and yet to win over this distance, but he has been supported at a price. Could pay to watch late betting moves.

12. She’s Ideel (Best Bet – $7) Bet @ Sportsbet

Plenty to like about her win at Randwick when holding off Montefilia. She has been set for this race from the ouset.

She loves Randwick and we’ll happily take the $7 available for this rising stayer.

13. Harpo Marx (Best Each Way – $17) Bet @ Sportsbet

Nothing wrong with is form in these conditions and he could be the forgotten runner at double figure odds.

Does his best racing at Randwick and he wasn’t suited at Kembla. A bounce back effort is expected.

14. Entente ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet

We’re not surprised he’s favourite after scoring impressively at Rosehill last week. Harder here, but he’s good enough to win at Group 1 level.

15. Great House ($16) Bet @ Sportsbet

A last-start winner that could run well again. Dropping in weight helps we wouldn’t be surprised if he ran them close.

16. Hush Writer ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

Likely to push forward and make a race out of it. Stable is running hot, but this would be a big upset.

17. No Compromise ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

Always around the mark and carrying 50kg is ideal. That counts over 2400m, so include him in selection at a fair price.

18. Charms Star (Best Roughie – $46) Bet @ Sportsbet

The former Kiwi was much better last start when fifth behind Kiss the Bride. She faces a rise in class, but punters get value odds.

Rising in distance shouldn’t pose too many problems.

19. Luncies ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

Carried support at Newcastle last start when fourth. Might not be up to this level just yet.

20. Zeyrek ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet

A solid effort when fourth behind She’s Ideel last start. Opened at $23 and is closing into single figure, so he demands respect.

21. Long Arm ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

Looks held against this level of opposition.
