Randwick horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:20) Midway BM72 (1600m)
#2 – Bethencourt @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Bethencourt, who comes off a win at Canterbury and he’s good enough to go back-to-back.
The five-year-old enjoyed the heavy conditions with the 1.3-length win and he has yet to run poorly on heavy tracks.
He placed at his only run on the track and we’re happy with the odds available.
Race 2. (12:55) Yarraman Park Reisling Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Russian Conquest @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Russian Conquest finished second behind Coolangatta in the Magic Millions and there is nothing wrong with that form.
The classy filly won by 3.3 lengths prior to that and she has shown a liking for wet tracks, so punters should have supreme confidence.
The small field contains the promising Greece, but we’ll go with race experience.
Race 3. (13:30) Todman Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Sejardan @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sejardan looked well above average when winning his first two starts before running third behind Xtravagant Star at Randwick.
The form out of that race should stack up nicely and the colt by Sebring has more upside than most in this field.
Carrying 55.5kg helps and he should get through the tough conditions best.
Race 4. (14:05) Cellarbrations Randwick City (2000m)
#11 – No Compromise @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It was a huge performance from No Compromise to finish second at Rosehill behind Mightybeel and he could turn the tables.
He got too far back in the run, but picked up generously in the straight to run 2.5 lengths behind the winner. With a more positive ride, he could have won.
Punters get value odds and carrying 53.5kg brings him right into contention.
Race 5. (14:40) Hyland Colours Challenge Stakes (1000m)
#1 – Nature Strip @ $1.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Nature Strip loves the wet conditions and he comes off an incredible effort just to finish second.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding ran a nose behind Home Affairs after jumping poorly, so he’s in prime condition for this race.
He owns seven wins on rain-affected ground and he’s unbeaten in two heavy track starts, so the statistics favour the odds-on favourite.
He could shorten to around $1.50 on race day, so take the $1.70.
Race 6. (15:20) Tokyo City Fireball Stakes (1100m)
#11 – Zapateo @ $11 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters get value odds for Zapateo, who owns two wins and a placing from three starts on wet tracks.
The James Cummings-trained three-year-old comes off a second placing behind Mazu and he’s paying triple the odds of the favourite.
With the 4kg weight swing, we’re favouring Zapateo to reverse the placings and score a win at double-figure odds.
Race 9. (17:20) Ranvet Aspiration Quality (1600m)
#7 – La Gai Soleil @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare loves racing in the wet and she’s good enough to go back-to-back after winning at Randwick.
She owns five wins from eight starts in the wet and she cruised past her rivals fresh up, so she’ll only be fitter for this race.
Carrying 53kg is ideal and punters get fair odds for the best rain-affected track thoroughbred in the field.
Race 10. (17:55) Entire Travel Weona Girl Quality (1200m)
#10 – Never Talk @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Never Talk has been waiting for wet conditions and the Kris Lees-trained mare gets everything to suit.
She hasn’t won for a while, but she’s unbeaten in two heavy track starts and she comes off a quick 200m sectional at Rosehill.
Getting in with only 53.5kg is a steal and punters should be confident in her chances.
