Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN previews Saturday’s Randwick , with horse racing tips and analysis for all 10 races on the card. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: out 8m entire

QUICK TEMPO is a winner. Just knows what the caper is all about. Started 5 times on out of town tracks for 5 wins and he will be charging home late here too.

SILENT IMPACT is very talented. Has just had the 3 starts to date but has won 2 of them and only failure was a stakes level when rising in distance. Back to sprinting and is set for a first-up kill

SPELLCATCHER likewise has has 3 runs and has won e 2 thus far. Has no weight here and is pretty talented. Sure to dash late.



SIR ARTIE is trained here and he looks very impressive accelerating away to score a trial win carrying more weight than his rivals. Looks fast and forward. Respect.

Similarly EMPEROR who was a game 3rd on debut in the Breeders’ Plate on debut looks ready to rumble while fresh today. Certain to be thereabouts here too.

WILD CAM was 4th on debut behind her vaunted stablemate Coolangatta then spelled. looked to be cantering when 3rd in a recent trial.  The trip appears to suit.


Not the best draw for EXTRAVAGENT LAD but his form in recent weeks has been first class leading into this. If he can find a back to follow he can sprint hard late.

FIFTY CARATS is 2nd up here and he has 2nd up form. Not a bad effort when 2nd in a strong Cl 2 just before spelling and she can bob up here at odds.

Watch the market for the lightly raced FANGELA. He has talent, is resuming and has been set for a first-up win.



You just have to love winning form and ARCTIC THUNDER fits that bill. Has won 2 of past 3 and shown great speed over the final 400m especially last start. Getting up in the weights but must be rated. Big show.

MEG gets back but gee when he mind is on the job she can really hit the wire Gard. Scored 2nd up last start at Canberra coming from a mile back. Has a touch of class.

AND WE DANCED laboured a bit as they turned but then came again when 2nd this level last start. Is fitter now too. Is on the improve every run.


JUNGLE BOOK is at a trip he loves now. Is suited this grade and being 4th up he looks well placed. Terrific 2nd last start at this level.

VIREN hasn’t won for some time but is racing well. Gets back and rushes home and with clear running he can do that again here. Great 2nd this level last start. Big show.

WHITE BOOTS looks very well placed here. With the 2kg weight allowance and being 3rd up here coming off a hard-finishing 4th this grade last start, he looms very large. No surprise to see him win this.


If LORD BELVEDERE has taken any improvement from his solid effort over 1550m here when resuming, then he might just be a good show here. Love the fact he gets a weight relief and he can stay all day.

A similar report could be had for this English galloper DESERT ICON. He finished hard over 1600m this grade at Flemington last start. When in England he was stakes placed over 1900m so this looks perfect.

TOOMUCHTOBEAR has been sensationally backed overnight and is ready to run a blinder. Perfectly drawn.



What a terrific race. Lots and lots of pace in this. LANCASTER BOMBER resumes here with a weight allowance and although he hasn’t won for a while, he is very smart when resuming. Drawn well too.

OUR BELLAGIO MISS has the great draw and should get a superb run just behind the speed. She is 4th up into this and looks a great show if she can get a run in the straight.

BROKEN ARROWS steps up in class here but gets a weight allowance for Reece Jones and he did win handsomely coming off the speed last start. Good chance.



This may be a tad short for PURPLE SECTOR but he is 3rd up after two cracking runs this grade. Drawn a good enough gate today. Loves this, his home track too. Big danger.

LOOKS LIKE ELVIS has the bad draw and that is an issue in this tough field. But he is in career best form so if he can get in with a back to follow he will be charging late.

TRUE DETECTIVE won a weaker race first-up but won it in style. Likes the sting out of the ground and now that he’s found form again he should run well.




This is a tough race. COUNTOFMONTECHRISTO hasn’t won for a long time and may have lost his desire to do so. But, saying that, he drops in class here and he is very fit. Beaten 6 lengths in a slightly stronger race last start when on speed. Goes well enough when wet and does like this trip.

BOTTEGA is 3rd up and did catch the eye with a strong late charge last start. Will sit back and being super fit now he should be rattling home in this. Big chance in this.

KINGSHIER is one of those ultra consistent types who is in great form. Won an easier race well last start.   Have in your numbers..


BRING THE RANSOM is a very capable mare at this level and above. Last start, while 2nd up, she made impressive ground to grab 3rd over 1200m in a strong race. Gets a 2kg claim here to help and is now very fit. Respect.

PAPAL WARRIOR looked in need of the run when grinding away into 3rd spot in a similar race last start. Is suited here now 3rd up and should be flashing home.

BADOOSH likes it wet and although form is average he can pick up here as he looks well weighted. Will finish hard.
