Randwick Tips - January 12

Race 4 - 2:40PM 2019 MEMBERSHIP HANDICAP (1500 METRES)
TORYJOY impressed in a recent barrier trial where she went to the line under a strong hold to finish in 3rd place - and her manners were much-improved from last start where she fired up midrace and took control of James McDonald as she went to the front and fought strongly to hold out Tycoon Street who was finishing with a wet sail down the outside. With three runs under her belt this time in, and another soft trial, she’s ready to step up in grade and gets in nicely at the weights with 3kg less than last time. 

Race 5 - 3:15PM SUMMER SPRINT (1000 METRES)
If the track stays in the Soft 7 range, and it may with rain predicted on each day leading up to Saturday, JUNGLE EDGE is the horse to beat. If you can forgive his five-length 10th placing in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) on a Good track, his two runs either side of that are clearly good enough to be winning on Saturday. Three starts back he was 2nd to Pierata in the Sydney Stakes (1200m) and last start he won at Ballarat when carrying 8kg more than the runner-up Proud Wolf. Badajoz and co are a step up from the field he met last start, but he also drops back to 1000m and will prove hard to catch on the rain-affected track. 

ORGANZA is unbeaten in three runs over 1400m and now drops back to her pet trip after runs over 1300m, 1500m and two over a mile. She got back last start and started to make ground but had to check off heels and sort of spat the dummy at that point. She wound up strongly late but wasn’t suited by the stop-start nature of the race. This is easier, and she maps to get a soft run along the inside from gate 2. 

Previous Randwick Tips:

(Kensington track) - January 5

The John O’Shea-prepared TWENTYFOUR CARAT impressed with a barrier trial on December 4 and has been scratched on two occasions prior to his debut assignment. Both times he was scratched from running on rain-affected ground, which indicates he may not handle it and they don’t want to waste a good fresh run. The two-year-old I Am Invincible colt has been given another barrier trial to keep him up to the mark, which makes it four trials since November 9. Fitness won’t be an issue and he has some quality about him. 
Result (3rd)

Regent’s best form appears to be on rain-affected ground, and with a Good track likely, POETIC CHARMER can make it three in a row. The Your Song gelding led all the way two starts back and then came from well off the pace last time to score. He maps perfectly here and is likely to get the run of the race one out and one back, and with peak fitness on his side, he looks hard to beat. 
Result (2nd)

Dangerous odds to be taking for GRESHAM but he’s clearly the one to beat with just 49kg on his back. He’s a horse than improves deeper into a preparation and that’s evident by his wins when fourth and fifth-up, as well as his 2nd placing behind Gaulois and 5th placing behind Avilius over 1600m at his eighth and ninth runs last campaign. He comes into Saturday’s assignment with three good runs under his belt, and from up on the speed with the light weight, he’ll prove hard to beat. 
Result (1st - $2.45)

December 29

Race 3 - 2:15pm EVENTS BY ATC HANDICAP (1400m)
They went up $4.00 about BONDI and that was simply the wrong price. He has been backed into $3.00 and that looks somewhere near the right price. He was only a half-length off Seabrook in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in the Autumn before returning the McNeil Stakes. He ran a long last, pulled up with an issue and was spelled. He has seemingly returned in terrific order, running a close-up second at Wyong first-up behind Problem Solver who is in the market behind Alizee in a later race. Staying at 1200m second-up is the only query but he does look the horse to beat. 
Result (3rd)

Race 7 - 4:55pm TAB REWARDS HANDICAP (1600m)
I’m with the four-year-old All Too Hard gelding REFLECTIVITY. He looked the winner two starts ago at Rosehill but just ran out of fitness over the concluding stages and was run down by Organza. He was too strong for Turnburry last start and looks ready to peak fourth-up over a mile. He drops 6kg from that victory and gets in with just 50.5kg with the claim from Brock Ryan. It looks a trickier map than the one he faced last start from barrier two but he should find a position, providing he jumps well. He looks the one for me. 
Result (Unplaced)

December 15

This Les Bridge-trained mare SEASONS looked top draw when she bolted in while resuming last start. Has pace, has a great kick, has honesty and is trained here. This is a strong BM 88 but she is headed to greater riches so should overcome everything and expect her to dash away late.
Result (2nd)

I just can't shake winning form as the best form and SKY BOY has that in spades here. He's strung together 4 on the bounce, yes in lower company, but with big weights and in good times. He is a winner, a fighter to the end and won't know himself with just 53kg here. My Nordic Hero and Interlocuter are both last start winners who hit the line hard to can fill the minors.
Result (Won - $3.50)
