Randwick Racing Previews & Tips - Saturday 29th December
Great meeting today at Royal Randwick with a few favourites looking to keep their winning streak alive. Inside draws could be the key.
Looks a great program at Royal Randwick with a few favourites looking well placed here today. Our top pick landed the cash last time out and looks hard to beat once again. Has the form and will be the one his rivals need to beat.
Randwick is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 6m the entire.
Randwick Race 1 - 1:05PM 2019 Membership Handicap (1000 Metres)
YITAI SYNERGY is trained by Peter Snowed and is on debut today. Going on her two trial victories, this filly looks to have plenty of speed. Won her trial on this track by two lengths a fortnight ago when leading for most of the trip. Bookies have also reported big money early for this horse. The one to beat.
1st: No12 YITAI SYNERGY 2nd: No13 Movie Role; 3rd: No6 Enraged; 4th: No1 Hightail
Randwick Race 2 - 1:40PM TAB Highway Handicap (1100 Metres)
RISK AND REWARD has drawn to get the gun run and looks the one to beat in today’s Highway Handicap over 1100m. Will strip fitter second-up from a break and can put his disappointing first-up effort aside with a strong showing today. Can bounce back.
1st: No5 RISK AND REWARD 2nd: No2 Ori On Fire; 3rd: No3 Manzana; 4th: No7 Camillo
Randwick Race 3 - 2:15PM Events by ATC Handicap (1400 Metres)
SWEET DEAL is looking to make it three wins on the trot here today. This mare has won her past two starts when storming home from the tail of the field and we expect her to be rocketing down the Randwick straight once again. In good form. Respect.
1st: No6 SWEET DEAL 2nd: No1 New Universe; 3rd: No6 Onslaught; 4th: No8 Bondi
Randwick Race 4 - 2:55PM Vale John Marshall (1400 Metres)
MISTER SONGMAN (NEXT BEST BET) looks hard to go past on his home track here today. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding has been unlucky at his past two starts and is due for a change of luck here today. Expect this galloper to bounce back here today. Perfectly placed.
1st: No3 MISTER SONGMAN 2nd: No2 Mr Tickets; 3rd: No5 Good Weather; 4th: No6 Shock Alert
Randwick Race 5 - 3:35PM Hyland Boxing Day Sale Handicap (1800 Metres)
Sticking with TURNBERRY to bounce back after finishing runner-up at his past two starts. Will be out to atone his narrow defeat behind Reflectivity at Rosehill a fortnight back when going down in a tight photo. Will be in this for a long way. Serious chance.
1st: No2 TURNBERRY 2nd: No3 Asterius; 3rd: No6 Live and Free; 4th: No7 Island Missile
Randwick Race 6 - 4:15PM Christmas Classic (1200 Metres)
Looks a perfect race for ALIZEE to return straight to the winner’s stall first-up from a 37-week break. This Godolphin mare oozes class and won the Group One Coolmore Legacy last time out before going for a spell. In one of the wins of the autumn, Alizee came from near last to overhaul Prompt Response and Heaven’s Above with a thundering finish. Has trialled well leading into this.
1st: No1 ALIZEE 2nd: No4 Fell Swoop; 3rd: No5 Husson Eagle; 4th: No8 Problem Solver
Randwick Race 7 - 4:55PM TAB Rewards Handicap (1600 Metres)
TIP TOP is racing in great form and going on his one length victory on this track a fortnight back, he will take a power of beating here today. This Les Bridge-trained galloper has shown to have a good turn of foot and watch for jockey A Hyeronimus to hit the ‘go’ button with a furlong to go. The one to beat.
1st: No3 TIP TOP 2nd: No2 Sir Plush; 3rd: No7 Gresham; 4th: No8 Reflectivity
Randwick Race 8 - 5:35PM Australian Turf Club Handicap (1200 Metres)
Hard to go past last start winner DEPRIVE (BEST BET) as he looks to make it back-to-back victories here today. Chased hard to defeat Miss Toorak Flyer by half a length on this track a fortnight back and has drawn perfectly and ready to make it successive victories. Will be launching late. Top pick.
1st: No4 DEPRIVE 2nd: No2 Blue Tycoon; 3rd: No6 Southern Lad; 4th: No7 Mad For Art
Randwick Race 9 - 6:15PM Summer Racing Handicap (1200 Metres)
SAVVAN has drawn to get the run of the race and shapes as the one to beat in the final event. Finished half a length behind Star Reflection on this track last start (with Seasons second) and can atone for that defeat with the perfect draw (one). Hard to toss.
1st: No1 SAVVAN 2nd: No2 Zonk; 3rd: No5 Pumpkin Pie; 4th: No10 Taniko
