THE PLAN: Randwick presents a True Rail and Good 4. The issue we have here is the amount of racing it has received in recent times. No real basis to predict a pattern off with the new Kensington track having been relayed recently. Only way to truly grasp the pattern is to watch the first two races. Looking for adaptable types in early plays. Any updates required will be sent through.
R3 #2 The Pharoah – #3 Viceroy – The Pharoah gets the blinkers today – solid setup to improve – has a class edge on this field when right. Viceroy looks to have come here under the radar – narrow win with conditions against fresh and really does look to get the right run here. Happy to play both
SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units The Pharoah @ $6 with Bet365 or Best of the Best – 3 Units VIceroy @ $10 with Centrebet/$8 with Bet365 or Best of the Best.
R4 #7 Runway Ready – Just keen to play around Awesome Pluck at the price and the difference between it and this horse looks too big. Happy to have a steady play on this runner today – getting the right run behind the speed.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units Runway Ready @ $4.20 with various
R6 #8 My Maher – Another steady play on a runner that just looks extremely well placed – trials great and even though tackling this grade for the first time – just looks an adaptable sprinter that can measure up to these.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units My Maher @ $4.80 with Bet365 – Happy to take $4.50+
R2 #4 Neruda – #5 Night Breaker – Keen to bet around the favourite here Spencer with a key negative rider change. Thought Neruda went very nicely fresh and back to home ground here can improve significantly. Night Breaker has trialled up extremely well as a gelding – tongue tie on also draws for a soft trail.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Neruda @ $12 with Bet365/UBET – Happy to take $10+ / 3 Units Night Breaker @ $8 with Bet365 – Happy to take $7+
R6 #5 Ultimate Fantasy – #8 Velocano – Velocano runs out a strong 1350m here – think she will be winning this – looks good pressure and she has been racing against far stronger – should be peaking now. Ultimate Fantasy is a winner over the mile – prefer on softer going – but the stable is flying and should be strong late. Scared of Duel Escape – throwing it in quinellas.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 1.5 Units Ultimate Fantasy @ $10 with Bet365/Sportsbet/UBET – 4.5 Units Velocano @ $4.40 with Sportsbet/TAB/UBE
