Previous Randwick Tips:


October 14


Race 4 - 1:50PM $200,000 TAB ANNIVERSARY HIGHWAY (1400 METRES)

Tremendous concept and what a reward for the club for putting this race on because it’s a cracker field. I'm on the mare PUMPKIN PIE. Her form reads poorly on paper, but in reality, her efforts were terrific in better grade. This is 4th up and with Hughie to ride and drawn the 2 gate, she should sit about 6th on the fence and sprint too well late from Galaxy Warrior and the in form Suncraze who should get a great run too.

Race 8 - 4:15PM $10 million THE TAB EVEREST (1200 METRES)

Outstanding race. All of them have claims if you spin their form certain ways but I'm on the filly SHE WILL REIGN. Her win first up was stunning. She got on wrong leg near bend, was a mile back, but just unleashed last bit because she wanted to win. Postage stamp on her back here and can break 34sec final sectional, so looks the play. Clearly Innocent and Chautauqua will be back in the ruck, the grey last on the bend, but both will charge home too.

Race 9 - 4:55PM $500,000 AQUALAND CRAVEN PLATE (2000 METRES)

Is HAPPY CLAPPER the 2nd best horse in Australia? Probably is and when he romps this in that fact probably will be confirmed. He’s Our Rokkii to grab 2nd.

October 7


Race 3 - 1:50PM ADINA APARTMENT HOTELS HANDICAP (1600 METRES)

INTERLOCUTER looks pretty smart. He was unluckily relegated last start after crossing the line first, and this trip at this stage of the prep is ideal. Ran in a barrier trial last week and cantered around. Is in superb touch. Has also drawn to get a great run, probably on the fence back in about 6th to the turn. Hogmanay is back in form and looks to run 2nd.

Race 5 - 3:00PM BOWERMANS OFFICE FURNITURE HANDICAP (1400 METRES)

Old MIGHTY LUCKY seems to be back as good as he's ever been. And with the weight allowance if that's the case, he can win. This is his first time back to handicap grade and he comes in very well, especially after his gutsy effort in better company last start when 2nd. looks sooo well placed. Duca valentinois is first up but is talented enough to be in the frame.

Race 7 - 4:10PM $500,000 MOET & CHANDON SPRING CHAMPION STAKES (2000 METRES)

Good, even field but I really like the way ACE HIGH led and dictated to his opponents. Nothing has changed from that race other than it's 200m further, but he kept going and really nothing made ground. Sanctioned is all class and chased him home in that race and should do the same while Colesberg will be huge odds but he’s been crying out for this journey.

September 30


Race 4 - 2:05PM $500,000 HILL STAKES (1800 METRES)

Good, even WFA field. If SENSE OF OCCASION turns up at his best he will be hard to beat, but off his last start he needs to improve. I like MACKINTOSH this week. His two runs this time up have been handy in fields that were better than this. Made ground 2nd up last start in Gr 1 behind Winx. Is ready to do his best and has the Magic Man on board.

Race 6 - 3:20PM SANTOS COFFEE PREMIERE STAKES (1200 METRES)

Yet another $500,000 mini Everest and we may get a real clear look at how that race will unfold. CHAUTAUQUA if he runs up to his very best should win this. He is better than these as he has shown numerous times and his first up run was chock full of merit. It will be interesting to see how Clearly Innocent runs. He's never been super great first up though so I'm on IN HER TIME off the inside draw to run 2nd. Terrific race.

Race 8 - 4:45PM Gr 1 THE METROPOLITAN (2400 METRES)

Great race. Pretty much everything has a hope here but I'm on Chris Waller to quinella the race, possibly trifecta it as well. LIFE LESS ORDINARY has been doing impressive things in good grade as he gets fitter and fitter. He has a win over 3200m in his younger life and he just looks too well weighted to go past. WHO SHOT THEBARMAN is too seasoned to leave out and BROADSIDE can lead and run 3rd.

September 16


Race 3 - 1:25PM SCHWEPPES HERITAGE STAKES (1100 METRES)

If trial form is anything to go by then Gary Portelli's SINGLE BULLET should lead all the way here. He is thge horse who went stride for stride with his illustrious stablemate She Will Reign in a trial recently and the pair looked each other in the ye and raced one another, a little harder than their riders wanted. He bobbed and beat her. VIRIDINE is unbeaten and is a real trier and MALAHAT looked goofd winning last start in weaker grade but has strong finish.

Race 5 - 2:35PM  TEA ROSE STAKES (1400 METRES)

CHAMPAGNE CUDDLES was the best of good things beaten in exactly this grade last start over 1200m. Had to nwork too hard and wide last start over 1200m but was coming and coming and just failed to grab Formality. Extra trip here, no Formality and fitter - looks the play for mine from the smart Victorian TULIP and the luckless I AM EXCITED.

Race 8 - 4:35PM KINGSTON TOWN STAKES (2000 METRES)

No-one could have missed the outstanding run of CHOCANTE when he resumed last start. It was in the 1600m Chelmsford Stakes, the race where Red Excitement took off and only the champ Winx was able to catch him. Well Chocante was the horse who carted the field up to Red Excitement and he hung tough to finish 3rd. Good stayer on his day and looks like he's flying. ANTONIO GUISEPPE is racing at his ultimate and will appreciate this easier race over this longer trip while LIFE LESS ORDINARY will settle mid-field and should dash home late to place.

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.
