Randwick Tips - August 19


Well, how can you go past SAYED? He looks set to progress to stakes class and his runaway win this grade last start beating GET ON THE GRANGE by 5 lengths underlines that. Here he is up just half a kilo for beating that horse who should chase him home again. Sayed looks a special.


The Chris Waller trained COMIN' THROUGH looks the best placed horse all day. He's had two terrific trials in preparation for this first up assignment. He looked bigger and stronger than previously in those trials. And his previous form was good enough to beat these. PETROSSIAN has been running on well of late and can sneak a place.



Many smart mares resuming from spells here. How forward are they? Well, trials are our best guide and EURO ANGEL trialed very impressively last week. She has a terrific first up record too and obviously races well fresh. DIXIE BLOSSOMS is talented and is first up here too. With Hugh Bowman taking the ride, you sense she is ready to run brilliantly also.

August 5


FRANCESCO looks well placed. He's a BM 90 horse down in grade in what looks a weak BM 80. ran a great 3rd as a lead up to this last start. KING DARCI has had 2 nice runs this time up. This Tim Martin/Adam Hyeronimus combo is landing winners everywhere of late and that must be respected here. DORF STAR is ready to shine. Placed 4th past 3 and has weight and draw to be in this here.

Race 7 - 3:30PM $200,000 MISSILE STAKES (1200 METRES)

Kris Lees brings his ever popular and highly talented speedster LE ROMAIN, who is the class here having won a couple at Gr 1 level, to town. He is resuming here but his trial form looks good. If at his best, he wins this easily. JUNGLE EDGE is a genuine Gr 2 galloper who goes very fast while fresh. Resumes here and will be in the fray all way. Has Gr 1 placings to his credit. BOSS LANE won 2 of past 3. Is just behind this level normally, but is racing in career best form.  


Smart Team Snowden mare DENPURR needs to be monitored. She has a fantastic first up record and she also has shown more talent than all these. However, she has a big weight and will have to weave a passage between runners from a mile back. Can win though. Her stablemate SPENDING TO WIN is the one to beat, though. Is very fit now and is weighted to be too good late. Meets a few of these sooo much better over recent starts. CLIPPER is a smart bush mare who is in form. Will be in for the fight here.

July 22

Race 2 - 12:10PM TAB HIGHWAY HANDICAP (1400m)

I just love NIC'S VENDETTA. He tries so hard and just runs through the line. Beat similar field last start and is fitter now. Hard to hold out. SUNCRAZE has been runner-up past 6 starts....looks to be smart but a non-winner.


This filly SUPER TOO trialled so impressively last week, she just has to be tipped here. She appears to be extremely fast. I'm on her from CUDABEEN. It's a good race.


SOUND PROPOSITION was Gr 1 placed in NZ then came here and after a couple of starts showed his true colours with a win this grade at Randwick last start being on pace all way. Not in that race, but equally as impressive was QLD visitor MAN OF HIS WORD last start. He stormed home from a mile back for 2nd place in this company. They look the two here but I think the Qlder can finish too well and claim the prize.

June 24


RICHARD OF YORKE deserves to win this. He's been up and contesting this class of race for what seems an eternity but continues to hold form and race strongly. The very heavy track here will sort the men from the boys and only the truest and fittest will survive. On that score this bloke ticks the most boxes for mine. Collateral to box on fairly for minor money.


Good race but I am keen on one here - OLD NORTH. He's Godolphin trained and is 4th up today. Last start in this grade was very gutsy to grab 3rd and this trip at this stage of his prep is picture perfect. Will test these. Marenostro to improve and run 2nd.


I'm loading up on this bad boy WILD'N'FAMOUS. Finally has everything in his favour. Is super fit as he's 4th up here, is perfectly drawn, can handle it wet and weight allowance is big help. Looks a special. Pelathronius to plug on for 2nd.

June 10

Race 2 - 12:05PM $100,000 ANDERSON HANDICAP (1100 METRES)

Hard to assess anything because the track will be so wet, but if it were good you'd be declaring IN TIMES OF WAR. She just keeps getting better every start and is ready to blow this mob apart. She beat a higher graded field last start and looked great doing it. For 2nd here, toss in Difficult To Get.

Race 3 - 12:40PM $60,000 TAB HIGHWAY HANDICAP (1000 METRES)

This is a very high grade Class 3 Highway. At least 5 of these can and will win in town. But it would need to be a good field because this Mudgee horse NICTOCK is a flying machine. He’s the size of a pit pony but he runs like a whippet. He's first up so is fresh here and will have to charge across from out wide. Greg Ryan in town on a Saturday is a massive pointer as well. Il Bandito is also unbeaten and can grab 2nd.

Race 7 - 3:10PM $150,000 AHC JUNE STAKES (1100 METRES)

Kris Lees will bring FELINES to town for this Listed race and he will go home with the cash. She looks way better than these. Has won on a heavy in the past as well. Boss Lane to run 2nd but topweight wins comfortably.

May 27

Race 7 - 3:00pm $150,000 McKell Cup 2400m

This is the main race at Randwick on Saturday. And it's not a bad renewal. I like ALLERGIC because he has the best form against top horses. Admittedly he has a big weight but, you know, staying races generally go to the best horse and I'm certain Allergic is that horse. Departing trainer Darren Beadman has been winning with everything of late and this would be a nice cherry on his impressive pie.

Race 8 - $100,000 Cancer Foundation Hcp $100,000 1100m

The lighter weighted horses here will probably be in favour of punters but I'm going the opposite direction. I like the fresh but out of form BOSS LANE here. Mainly because he's back to handicap conditions and he's at Randwick. He will cop a nice run just behind the pace and I think at big each-way odds he will find the line and at least place for us.

Race 9 - $100,000 Solutions Hcp 1400m

COOLCRAFT must hate the sight of the Godolphin blue silks having seen them zip past him on two different horses his past two starts. He's wound up 3rd each time and they were in better grade. Should be super fit now and drawn perfectly. Oh, and best of all - no Godolphin runners in this!

What Bets To Place at Randwick Races

There are a number of ways to bet on horse racing this weekend from a standard win or place bet to quadrellas and multibets. 

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way (see our guide for what an each-way bet is), the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race. 

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched.

Randwick Race Track Description

Randwick is the largest racetrack in New South Wales and all races are run in a clockwise direction. It is a sweeping track with a rise from the 300m mark to the winning post in the home straight.

As well as the main track, Randwick Racecourse contains a second track known as Kensington. Due to large rainfall in the area, Kensington has been reconstructed using the Strathayr racing surface which is similar to Moonee Valley.

Strathayr is a turf cover over a base of sand, this means it is a free draining track which can take a substantial amount of rain without affecting the rating.
