Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN previews Friday’s Randwick meeting on the Kensington track, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 7 races on the card. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: out 3m, entire circuit

Home track and a great gate for BELIEBER make him a special. He is fast and looks stakes grade. Should lead all the way here.

TINY was sent for a spell after a most impressive maiden win last start. trials good. Has a lot of talent too.

MY RUBY resumes here too but is extra smart. This is a good little field and she rates a show too.


Unraced filly FLEXIBLE looks in this well placed. She has had a few trials and has won two of them. The booking of Hughie suggests she might be above average. Big show.

BROOKSHIRE hasn’t started yet and hasn’t done a great deal at the trials either but there is a fair bit of stable support. was jogging when 4th in recent trial she could have won easily. May pay to have in your numbers.

WINDSWEEP showed a bit of talent on debut placing at the provincials. Resumes here and is on home track. Place hope.


This race is interesting. I think this EXOBOOM might be talented. was $36 on debut and was near last to the end but flashed home to grab 2nd in a Newcastle mdn. Has since spelled, filled out and did win a trial at Randwick last week. Respect all that.

SUPREME LEADER has shown talent at this level, placing at past three runs after sitting behind the speed each time. Is very fit now. That makes him a big hope.

FINALLY REALISE is a professional placegetter it seems. Has foot of the till with placings at this level in four of past five starts and has the perfect gate here. Jock is in sparkling form also.


Very even field and might be worth having a few exotic bets. FROZEN IN TIME is a smart mare and always a threat against her own sex. Won handsomely last start. Have her in your numbers.

FRONT MONEY has the rails draw and had nice form last campaign.  Should run well.

On her home track here ALISON OF TUFFY should be hard to beat. She is very fit and honest.  Bound to be dashing late. SALLY’S DAY has been backed because she has a strong first-up record.


The big drop in grade here combined with the fact he’s on his home track now and is 4th up makes ULUSABA one of the best hopes. He most likely leads these and will set a sharp tempo. Drawn perfectly and the stars are aligning.

NYAMI finished like a train to win a similar race when sitting off the speed last start. Superfit now and conditions are very similar here too. Big show.

LIVEINTHEFASTLANE has been up a while but is extremely honest and gives his all every start.  Harder here but should run on.


The jury is out on whether or not topweight ICONIC STAR has come up this time. She has led both her starts but folded badly late. This is easier and she is much fitter.  The 2kg claim is a big help.

Watch betting. PERIGORD resumes here and was very impressive last campaign winning first-up.

Not served the best at the barrier draw but a few scratching will help OUR BELLAGIO MISS tonight. She was impressive when resuming this class and 2nd and is fitter now. She is a real trier.



BIG BAD BRUCE rises in class here following a strong win last start when 2nd up. Very fit and is on the improve each start.  This is ideal.

MUBARIZ should be monitored. Trials of late encouraging and does go well first-up. Ideally drawn here too.

PITCHFORK is handy at this level and resumes here. Has a history of racing well while fresh and with Hughie aboard looks a big danger.
