Randwick Tips 03/02/2023

Our form expert provides Randwick tips for today’s horse racing on the Kensington track and gives his best bets.



Race 5:  No.3  CAP ESTEL  ($4.60 with Palmerbet)

The Anthony Cummings-trained CAP ESTEL is third-up today and should be ready to step up to the plate in this contest. Last start, the Zoustar mare was ridden further forward (under instructions) where she ran home moderately to finish mid-field in a strong BM78 Hcp over the Randwick mile (won by Banana Queen). She managed to run her last 600m, 4.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, second-best here behind Ella Te Ama who makes her debut here on the Kensington track. Placed twice from two previous third-up runs, the four-year-old will strip fitter today and already a winner on the track, she will take beating here.



Race 3:  No.6  EPISODIC  ($4.60 with Palmerbet)

The Chris Waller-trained EPISODIC has her second race start today and looks set to challenge for victory. On debut, the Tavistock filly did well to finish on the podium when she finished third in a 1250m Maiden at Canterbury. Held up at a vital stage in the run home, she ran on strongly to be beaten less than two lengths on the day. James McDonald takes control here as the filly gets the gun-run from gate one and fitter for that debut effort, she can collect the cash here today.



Race 4:  No.8  ENDORPHINS  ($10 with bet365)

Kris Lees saddles-up ENDORPHINS here who is knocking on the door for her first win this time in. Last start, the Sebring mare came off a runner-up finish at Warwick Farm when she carried 5kgs more at Wyong and finished third over 2100m in a BM64 Hcp on a Heavy 8 that day. She ran the trip out, 3.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, second-best only to Oceanic Flash here and also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Jason Collett is legged aboard for his third ride on the mare today where she drops 4kgs and after five runs back, should be at her peak now. Well drawn in gate four, she can give this contest a real shake at odds.
