Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s Warwick Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all seven races on the card. Good luck, punters!

Rail Position: Out 3m, entire circuit

Track Condition: Heavy 9

JUDICATOR indicated his talents by winning an open mdn last start over 1500m at just his 2nd run. He looks ready-made and can finish off. He will have to chase down ECHO LAD who looks well placed. He’s very fit now and will lead these. If he’s left alone and kicks off the bend he will take a power of catching. WAR BARON may have the most talent. He’ll need things to go his way but he will grind home hard now that he’s fit.


REGAL CAPITAL was showing good talent at this level when last in work placing a few times. Has been spelling for a while and trials suggest he is better than before. Chance. LOCHITA may be the one they come for. Did win what looks like a strong trial and won it impressively. Yet to race but will dash to the lead and could take catching. SHARAPOVA is lightly raced but has wheels. Showed that last campaign placing this grade. Resumes here.


BLACK MAGNUM had 3 runs when last in work and was very consistent winning and placing. Goes well fresh and is up to this grade. LASHES was outstanding when resuming from a spell recently grabbing 2nd spot. Fitter now and this suits a great deal. TRANSMITTER was great this company when last in work but not so this time up. Give one last chance.


KNOWITALL JACK is lightly raced but has shown superior talent. Won mdn before spell in impressive fashion and the form from that race has stood up. Against him is the weight, the wet track and the fact he resumes. Watch market as trials have been good. SOUTHERN ROMANCE would be a special in this if track wasn’t heavy. Has loads of talent but worst runs have been on heavy tracks. Saying that, is deliciously well placed and is in sparkling form. LICKO’PAINT has had 2 x Sydney runs this time up, both in this grade and has run well. Being 3rd up, with weight allowance puts her in the fray. Good race.


Fascinating race. Lots of chances. PELETHRONIUS is 4th up, is down in grade has a weight advantage and LOVES a heavy track. That makes him a big player here. ANDAZ was strong and a tad unlucky when 2nd in similar race last start. Must be considered. BLACK AND TAN is in career best form but up in grade. Inside draw helps.


Tough race to work out in the mud. SWEET AVA made ground 2 runs back this grade for 3rd and with the scratchings comes into play here as does VINNIE POWER who looks the leader. Around here in the mud that may be enough. HIGH LOW BET is up in grade but has been racing well.


Home track is a big thing and CHAPELCO gets that here. Is also very fit and is the leader here. In the mud, all things considered – that makes him a big player. PEMBROKE CASTLE hit the wire really well last start when 2nd and was just 3rd up. Must be super fit now. THE PARTY GIRL is racing in career-best form winning 2 runs back and ran a solid 4th this grade last start. Big chance too.
