Warwick Farm free tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Winter Racing Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Quantico @ $7.50 – Bet Now
Quantico is on debut for John O’Shea and he has looked above average at the trials.
The son of I Am Invincible ran fourth at his first trial but improved nicely to run second at Randwick behind Acumen. That’s strong trial form and it included some race rivals here.
Betting will provide a good indication of his ability but the booking of James McDonald is a good sign and he gets the inside draw to jump from.
Race 2. (14:00) Casino Prince @ Vinery Maiden (1300m)
#1 – Hulk @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Hulk was a well-backed favourite last start when running second on this track but he owns the experience edge over this field.
He was a little one-paced in the straight but he fought on well enough and his record of three placings from five starts is better than most here.
Seeing Hugh Bowman stick with the Chris Waller-trained runner is a positive sign and we’re prepared to give him another chance.
His maiden win will come soon.
Race 3. (14:35) ANZ Bloodstock News BM70 (1200m)
#7 – Erno @ $1.90 – Bet Now
Erno looked the goods winning his first two races by over a length in each and he didn’t lose any admirers last start.
The Kim Waugh-trained three-year-old won on debut at Wyong before scoring a win on this track by 1.3 lengths in April.
He was tested against a strong field at Hawkesbury following that when running second behind Creator and that form has stacked up nicely since.
Drawn well and he looks a good win bet against a moderate field.
Race 4. (15:10) TAB BM70 (1200m)
#4 – Transmitter @ $7.50 – Bet Now
We’re going to stick with Transmitter until she wins another race. The James Cummings-trained mare has been all around the money this year after three consecutive placings.
Her most recent run was a second placing at Warwick Farm when running behind Ballistica and she’s only going to improve as the tracks get harder.
Cummings-trained runners don’t often stay out of the winners’ enclosure for that long, so it’s about time the four-year-old crossed the line first.
Punters should get each-way odds.
Race 5. (15:45) Everest Carnival BM70 (1100m)
#12 – Lanigera @ $3.20 – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up a smart type here with Lanigera. The three-year-old scored a win at Newcastle last start by 3.3 lengths and he’s set for another big effort.
His career started off by taking on the likes of Champagne Boom, Loving Gaby and Microphone. That’s Group 1 form and this is a massive drop in class.
He showed what he can do last start at Newcastle and with this field not being too much harder, he could score another comfortable victory.
Just needs some luck from out wide but Kerrin McEvoy is more than capable.
Race 6. (16:20) Lonhro & Sons @ Darley BM70 (1600m)
#6 – Obelos @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the imported runner which has had three Australian starts for one placing.
He comes into this having finished a close-up sixth on this track and he’s only going to improve with more racing under his belt.
The son of New Approach is bred to handle the mile and more. That’s going to suit him here against a field that doesn’t contain any superstars.
It’s also a big field and he’ll likely settle back off a hot pace and work into the race nicely.
Race 7. (16:55) Australian Turf Club BM70 (1400m)
#2 – Lifetime Quest @ $3 – Bet Now
Consistency is key with Lifetime Quest, which has yet to finish outside the first three home.
The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old scored a quality win on this track last start which capped off three consecutive placings this campaign.
Drawing wide in barrier 11 will make it tough but Hugh Bowman retains the ride and he should be able to find some cover over this distance.
