Randwick Race 6 - 4:20PM Razor Sharp Handicap (1200 Metres)
Looks a perfect race for the speed machine CRADLE MOUNTAIN (NEXT BEST) to make it a hat-trick of victories since resuming. Led and fought off all challengers when defeating Dyslexic by half a length at Rosehill last start. Has drawn perfectly and will prove hard to run down once again. The gelding is flying and ready to win again. Top pick.

Will be flashing at them late.
1st: No15 ORGANZA 2nd: No16 So You Win; 3rd: No12 Plaisir; 4th: No3 Dagny
