Our form expert provides Randwick tips for Saturday’s horse racing at Randwick Racecourse and gives his best bets.

 

BEST BET 🏆

Race 8:  No.7  GRACILISTYLA  ($3.50 with Ladbrokes)

Chris Waller saddles-up GRACILISTYLA here who is three starts into this preparation and should be ready to win. Last start, the Medaglia D’oro gelding was third-up when he beat all but one home in a BM72 Hcp over 1500m at Rosehill. He steps up to the mile trip again but should be at his peak here as Zac Lloyd takes the reins for this assignment. From gate five, he maps to settle mid-field with cover and if he finds clean air on straightening, he should prove hard to hold out.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 6:  No.3  BATTLETON  ($5.10 with BoomBet)

The Bjorn Baker-trained BATTLETON is now in great touch this preparation and looks well placed here to go on with it in this contest. Last start, the Zoustar gelding recorded his first win for this campaign when he arrived in time to take out a BM78 Hcp, here over 1400m. Dylan Gibbons was aboard that day and sticks with the four-year-old here. He steps-up in grade here but drops in weight and ideally drawn in gate two, he can give this a real shake.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 5:  No.12  DAKOTA VROOM  ($9 with Bet Right)

The Chris Waller-trained DAKOTA VROOM is off to a flying start in her racing career and second-up here, looks a serious player for the main prize. Last start, the I Am Invincible filly was fresh off a 20-week stint in the paddock when she showed no signs fatigue, taking out a BM64 Hcp over 1100m at Warwick Farm, and did it in style. She sat outside the leader most of the way, then finished best to go on and win by more than a length on the line. She shows plenty of upside and scratched from Wednesday’s Canterbury meeting to run here, she looks a real chance at (currently) each-way odds in this contest.
