Saturday Racing Previews & Tips - Randwick 1st September
Looks a great meeting at Randwick to start the Spring season with a few handy Group races on the program today.
Royal Randwick is the venue for today’s meeting and we see the return of reigning Everest champion in Redzel who gets his preparation underway looking to reclaim his crown. Our top pick won last start and can win again so stick with him as he will prove hard to beat.
Randwick is racing on a Good 4 with the rail +10M 1600m to WP, 7+ REMAINDER.
Randwick Race 1 - 12:10PM ATC Heritage Society Handicap (1300 METRES)
Looks a perfect race for MORE SUNDAYS who defeated Brutal Power by 2.3 lengths at Geelong early August to take out the opening event at Randwick today. Showed plenty of speed when leading all the way at his debut. Did win a trial leading into this and will be ready to fire. The one to beat.
1st: No9 MORE SUNDAYS 2nd: No4 Ranier; 3rd: No3 Condemned; 4th: No14 Sangita
Randwick Race 2 - 12:50PM National Jockeys Trust Handicap (1600 METRES)
Looks a perfect race for in-form gelding STREETS OF AVALON to rack up the hat-trick of victories here today. Has won his past two in Victoria and looks primed for a huge effort here today. Defeated Wayanka by 1.4 lengths at Caulfield last start. In hot form, the one to beat.
1st: No9 STREETS OF AVALON 2nd: No6 Souchez; 3rd: No3 Old North; 4th: No1 Farolitos
Randwick Race 3 - 1:25PM TAB Highway Handicap (1400 METRES)
Sticking with *SCRATCHED* TABLE MOUNTAIN to take out today’s Highway Handicap. Resumed with a huge effort when narrowly beaten behind Lifesaver at Rosehill as fortnight back. Has won second-up in the past and has a great record over the distance. Ticks all the boxes. Hard to go past.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No4 TABLE MOUNTAIN 2nd: No6 Tristan De Angel; 3rd: No5 Safe Landing; 4th: No3 Cisco Boy
Randwick Race 4 - 2:00PM Schweppes Handicap (2000 METRES)
The lightly raced David Payne mare ALL TOO SOON won well last start at Rosehill and can make it successive victories here today. Settled in a midfield position before storming home for a dominant 2.5 length victory, defeating Eugene’s Pick. Will strip fitter third-up and can take the next step up in grade. Rates well.
1st: No6 ALL TOO SOON 2nd: No4 Just Shine; 3rd: No2 Brimham Rocks; 4th: No3 Goathland
Randwick Race 5 - 2:35PM Concorde Stakes (1000 METRES)
Reigning Everest champion REDZEL has trialled exceptionally leading into his return to racing here today and looks perfectly placed to take out the Group 3 over the 1000m. This champion Snitzel gelding excels over the track/distance and will be hard to run down on a track his tasted success six times over. Looks to have a big spring ahead of him - should be winning!
1st: No1 REDZEL 2nd: No5 Invincible Star; 3rd: No3 The Monstar; 4th: No9 Memes
Randwick Race 6 - 3:10PM Tramway Stakes (1400 METRES)
Speed machine *SCRATCHED* PIERATA (BEST BET) defeated Kementari last start in quick time and will be hard to beat over a distance he excels racing over. Sat behind the speed and pounced in the straight to hold off a late challenge from boom galloper Kementari on this track three weeks back. Drawn to get the run of the race and looks the one they all need to beat. Serious galloper in the making!
1st: *SCRATCHED* No4 PIERATA 2nd: No12 Tom Melbourne; 3rd: No1 Le Romain; 4th: No11 Dixie Blossoms
Randwick Race 7 - 3:50PM Bisley Workwear Chelmsford Stakes (1600 METRES)
CABEZA DE VACA was beaten 3.4 lengths behind the superstar of the track Winx last start and will strip fitter second-up here today. Has a good record over the distance and will appreciate racing on his home track here today. Commands serious thoughts.
1st: No10 CABEZA DE VACA 2nd: No7 Prized Icon; 3rd: No2 Mr Moonlight Magic; 4th: No13 Single Gaze
Randwick Race 8 - 4:30PM Darley Furious Stakes (1200 METRES)
MISS FABULASS is a superbly bred filly Frankel/ Samantha Miss and looked impressive winning at Canterbury last start. Led and proved too good for Ranier when racing away to a commanding 1.4 length victory on the tight turning track. Has drawn to be up near the speed and can take the next step up in grade today. Looks a handy type, stick with her.
1st: No12 MISS FABULASS 2nd: No2 Fiesta; 3rd: No3 Pure Elation; 4th: No1 Oohood
Randwick Race 9 - 5:10PM Heineken 3 Handicap (1400 METRES)
Hard to go past BEST OF DAYS (NEXT BEST BET) who looks as a serious hope in the final event of the program here today. Resumed with good effort when beaten by three lengths behind future star Kaonic on this track a fortnight ago. Has placed at his two second-up attempts in the past and sure to be very competitive over a winnable distance. Rates on top.
1st: No7 BEST OF DAYS 2nd: No5 Sir Plush; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No8 No Doubt; 4th: No3 Sambro
