Randwick Tips 15/02/2023

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



Race 2:  No.4  BON VIVANT  ($3.50 with Ladbrokes)

The James Cummings-trained BON VIVANT is second-up off a 10-month break today and showed enough at Warwick Farm to suggest he can give this a shake. Fresh off that lengthy break, the Golden Horn gelding came from back in the field to grab third prize in a BM72 over 1400m. Held up at vital stages in the run home, he did well to finish as close as he did, doing his best work over the last 100 metres. He ran the trip out, 3.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here by 3 lengths. He is already a winner when second-up and has won two of his three attempts over the mile. Nash Rawiller has the reins today and with a trouble-free run this time, he looks the one to beat.



Race 4:  No.7  LATENIGHTTOUGHGUY  ($5.50 with BlueBet)

The Chris Waller-trained LATENIGHTTOUGHGUY is in good touch this time in and looks well placed here to return to the winner’s circle today. Last start, the Written Tycoon gelding missed his first podium finish this campaign when he finished fifth (beaten just over a length) in a BM72 over 1200m at Warwick Farm. He still managed to run that trip out, 3.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field and a new personal best for him. He faces similar company today and has Nash Rawiller sticking with him for this assignment. With a clear run home today, he gets his chance to make amends.



Race 7:  No.1  THE BIG EASY  ($6 with bet365

The Maher & Eustace stable saddle-up THE BIG EASY here who is third-up and capable of taking out this contest. Last start, the Written Tycoon gelding made a mess of it and the run is best forgotten. Drawn the fence that day, he blew the start and was left to settle third-last, six lengths off the speed. In the run home, he had horses all around him and nowhere to go. He still ran the last 600m, 7.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by more than 5 lengths. He draws the fence again today and is joined by Dylan Gibbons who claims 2kgs here. With a clearer crack at them here, he looks a genuine contender at odds.
