Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Saturday’s Randwick meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races on the card. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Heavy 9
Rail Position: Out 6m, entire circuit
Strong field. PELTZER is trying to protect his unbeaten 2-race record here. He’s drawn badly but showed last start that he is rather strong. Sure to be in the fray. HINCHBEAST led and skipped clear before his condition gave out over the final 100m last start. Should be a couple of lengths fitter now and this is 100m less. OVERLORD is a maiden but from his 2 starts thus far he’s shown talent. Should settle and run home hard.
Tough field. TEJORI has won 3 of her 4 starts to date, including at Highway level. Is fast and tough. Up in weight here but will look the winner at some stage. KEEN POWER is unbeaten in 2 starts. This is hard and is resuming but is a dual acceptor going into this and has drawn perfectly. ELEAZAR carries no weight, is 3rd up and has the ability to run home hard.
TAMPERING won 3 easier races in a row then raced wide last start when handy 6th last start. Perfectly drawn this time and can bounce back. FOXBOROUGH is a promising staying filly. She is on home track and is a last start winner. Big show. REINVEST is unbeaten in 2 starts. Will roll to the early lead and is showing toughness. is on home track too.
It’s just really hard to assess this field because they all have a strong chance. CANASTA has the good rails draw and is racing in career-best form. Has the capacity to hit the line hard. HIGH OPINION doesn’t win many but always runs on hard and looks suited to this grade. Sure to be in the money while LORD GODODDIN, now 3rd up, is expected to run a much-improved race. Good race.
What a lottery! weights play a big role here. INVICTUS PRINCE is probably the most talented but resumes here and hasn’t won for a long time. Should get a nice cover just off the pace though and could charge late. CORUSCATE is very honest and is racing in good fashion of late. Runner-up when making impressive ground late this grade last start. SOUTHERN LAD was a very impressive 2nd when resuming last start. Just ran out of gas late. Fitter now and should be running home hard.
A tremendous betting race. ABOVE AND BEYOND receives a 1.5kg allowance and has the perfect barrier here. Is very fit also and goes well this grade. A lot to like about him here. BOLD AND WILD is getting better with every start. Has been sparingly raced but has won past 3 on the bounce and this looks at his mercy. Can be very explosive when in the mood. Very hard to beat. MISS EINSTEIN loomed to win a similar race last start but wilted final 100m. Ran 3rd and you’d expect she’s fitter now. Big show.
Tip: BOLD AND WILD
Look at this field. Looks a very fast field. ENFLEURAGE is as honest as the day is long in summer. She resumes here and was set to win last week but was withdrawn on the wet track. Watch market. WITHERSPOON is up in class here but down a long way in weight and is very fit. Should lead and may take catching this time. LONGBOTTOM is the opposite. Is strong late and is a filly in form right now. Could knock them all out at nice odds.
Fascinating race. MISS FABULASS may find this to her liking. She’s down a little in grade, is over her pet trip and drawn nicely. Looks a smart move to have in your numbers. DEALMAKER has the good draw and did make impressive late ground to grab 2nd this grade last start. Has claims. OUTRAGEOUS is 3rd up here and is racing well having placed past two. Looks fit enough to trouble these. Can show up.
Tip: MISS FABULASS
A tough race to end the day. The toppie BLAZING MISS is back in form with win last start suggesting, now that she’s 3rd up, she can go on with that form. Similarly, SAKURA is 3rd up and did come late for solid 3rd last start this company. JAY JAY D’AR is 4th up here. Has steadily improved each run this time up culminating with game win slightly easier race last start. Chance to continue that improvement curve.
