Randwick Race 2 – G2 Todman Stakes – 1200m
#5 Stay Inside – $3.30
Should be a few that roll along early which will open up a few gaps in the field, if J Mac can slot in from the wide gate and peel at the top of the straight, this looks very hard to beat. Take advantage of the ‘SWITCH’ promo at Ladbrokes if you can.
Randwick Race 7 – G1 Randwick Guineas – 1600m
#7 Mo’unga – $6.50
Very good first-up when beating home Cherry Tortoni, who was narrowly beaten in the Australian Guineas. This suits 2nd up and finally draws a decent gate. Should race much handier to them and always strong through the line. (Also worth a nibble in the Australian Derby @ $26/$7.30)
Randwick Race 8 – G1 Canterbury Stakes – 1300m
#4 Kementari $21/$5.00 & #9 Madam Rouge $20/$4.6
Intriguing affair. Bivouac was a shade plain last start and every chance of being caught wide no cover and with that in mind, we’ll spec two at big odds, and I can’t believe Kementari is one of them. Spanked Celebrity Queen last start who dead-heated for first in the Oakleigh. Madam Rouge gets the right run, right trainer/jockey and has previous form good enough for this.
Flemington Race 6 – G1 Newmarket Handicap – 1200m
#3 Imaging – $16/$4.20
Different sort of prep for a new market dropping back in distance from the Orr Stakes, where it was caught wide without cover and only narrowly beaten. Stablemate to the favourite and can run a cheeky race here at odds.
Flemington Race 8 – G1 Australian Cup – 2000m
#5 Warning $34/$8.00 & Steel Prince $12/$3.80
Wide-open affair. Steel Prince was left stranded 3 wide without cover last start and was still strong through the line. J Kah sticks and with a smother early can finish over the top of them late. Warning is first up into this after his mid-field finish in the Melbourne Cup. Like the booking of Ollie and the Turnbull run from last prep would win this, can run a race at odds.
T20 – New Zealand VS Australia (Friday afternoon)
Same Game Multi – $5.31
Ladbrokes have a promo of money back in bonus bets if a 3+ leg multi fails by just 1 leg. With that in mind, we’ll take; New Zealand to win, 15+ total match sixes and Stoinis to score 10+ runs.
