Randwick Race 2 - 12:30pm Tab Highway Handicap (1400 Metres)


CLIFF is racing in great form and can atone for his narrow defeat on this track to Gitan last start. Chased hard but found one to good on the day and looks well-placed to todays out today’s Highway Handicap. Sticking with him.

Randwick Race 3 - 1:05pm Cindy Sullivan Memorial Handicap (2400 Metres) 


Chris Waller trained gelding RAQEEQ is on a seven-day back-up but going on his dominating victory last start he will be the one they all need to beat here today. Kerrin McEvoy retains the ride and we expect this gelding to make it back-to-back victories in the space of a week. Big danger.


1st: No6 RAQEEQ 2nd: No9 Follow Suit; 3rd: No1 Sayed; 4th: No4 Red Alto

Randwick Race 4 - 1:40pm Everest Carnival On Sale Handicap (1800 Metres)


SWEET VICTORY was beaten by Huangshan a week back and the stable must be confident backing her up here today after seven days. Drawn to get the run of the race and will appreciate this shorter distance here today. In good form and looks a key player.


1st: No5 SWEET VICTORY 2nd: No2 Oklahoma Girl; 3rd: No1 Live to Dream; 4th: No8 Fleeting Stryke

Randwick Race 5 - 2:15pm Tony Crawford 50th Handicap (1600 Metres)


Godolphin’s gelding AVILIUS is lightly-raced and ready to make a statement since having a 7-month layoff. Has had the benefit of two trials leading into his debut in the country and is sure to be very competitive. Drawn wide but win wont shock.


1st: No2 AVILIUS 2nd: No4 Dagny; 3rd: No7 Gresham; 4th: No8 High Mist

Randwick Race 6 - 2:50pm ATC Owner Benefits Card Handicap (1200 Metres)


SMARTEDGE (NEXT BEST BET) flew home to get the victory at Canterbury last start and can make it successive victories here today. Will be settling near the rear but watch for his tremendous turn of foot which he showed last start. Will be flying home late, big danger.


1st: No4 SMARTEDGE 2nd: No3 Reach For Heaven; 3rd: No1 Redouble; 4th: No7 Ziggy Willie

Randwick Race 7 - 3:30pm Mostyn Copper Group Missile Stakes (1200 Metres)


Reigning Randwick Guineas winner KEMENTARI (BEST BET) resumes here today and looks perfectly placed to take out today’s Group 2 Missile Stakes.

Hard to go past ISLAND MISSILE here today after his impressive 2.3-length victory defeating Mad Fox at Warwick Farm last start and can go on and make it successive victories here today. Has a good record over the distance and will be flashing at them late. Winning hope.
