THE PLAN: Randwick today +4M rail and a Good 4. Track looks to have returned to the Randwick of old and the inside should be smelly. Expecting riders to come off the fence in the straight. Keeping a close eye on the pattern – hoping it is OK to run on – significant on pace bias would be an issue.
R1 #6 So It Is – Horribly ridden last start – should be peaking here and should be strong late. Think she is the most promising horse engaged here and despite giving them a start – looks the value runner.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units So It Is @ Best of the Best
R4 #5 Reach For Heaven – Looks set for a first up effort – three trials – looks to map midfield and should be very strong late over this trip. Talented galloper that finds a very suitable race to kick off in this prep.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4 Units Reach For Heaven @ $3.60 with Bet365 or Best of the Best
R6 #3 Morton’s Fork – #5 Liapari – Morton’s Form is flying and looks to peak here – just needs a bit of early pressure and he will be storming late. Liapari the other that peaks – appreciates the mile and should be strong. Usually against backing two closers – but the early favourite just looks cramped odds and worth betting around.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 5 Units Morton’s Fork @ Best of the Best – 1 Unit Liapari @ Best of the Best
R9 #8 Invicta – #10 Hurrican Harbour – Looking for value here in what looks an extremely open race. Invicta is an under rated type that should have a turn of foot up to this trip – mid field in the run and strong late. Hurricane Harbour looks perfectly setup to run well here – on pace and can fight strongly. Scared of Vaucluse Bay – but well enough found.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2.5 Units Invicta @ $11 with Bet365 – 2 Units Hurricane Harbour @ $13 with Bet365
