Randwick Tips 25/02/2023

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



Race 8:  No.1  ANAMOE  ($1,70 with Ladbrokes)

The James Cummings-trained ANAMOE ticks every box on the planet here and looks the best of the day. Last start, the Street Boss galloper racked-up his third-straight first-up win when he did enough to take out the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m), making it five wins from seven starts on the Randwick track. The seven-time Group 1 winning horse is already a three-time winner when second-up and James McDonald is aboard again for ride number 13 and looking for win number nine. He has two wins over the mile trip, shooting for a third here and better than bank interest here, surely just bad luck beats him in this contest.



Race 4:  No.7  GLORY DAZE  ($2.70 with Palmerbet)

The Maher & Eustace stable saddles-up the former Irish galloper GLORY DAZE here who has already made an impact on Australian soil and looks set for back-to-back victories in this contest. Last start, the Cotai Glory colt was having just his second start for his new stable when he finished best to score in a BM78 over 1700m at Sandown. He ran his last 600m, 6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort in this field. He also posted the fastest final 800m, 600m and 200m sectionals for that race. Third-up here and James McDonald gets the first Sydney ride on the three-year-old and stepping up to the 2000m here looks ideal. With a trouble-free run, he will take beating.



Race 9:  No.10  THINK ABOUT IT  ($3.90 with Neds)

Coming in on the limit here, the Joe Pride-trained THINK ABOUT IT is unbeaten in three starts this time in and looks most likely to remain that way after this contest is over. Last start, the well-bred So You Think gelding brought-up the hat-trick in fine style when he came from back in the field and swamped the front-runners to take out a BM88 Hcp with Sam Clipperton in the saddle. He ran his last 600m, 7.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, second-best only to Rocketing By (who is second-up here and yet to win over the 1300m trip). This is his toughest test to date but he carries just 53kgs here and drawn sweetly in gate two, he does no early work from there. Clipperton is three from three with the four-year-old and with all boxes heavily ticked, he should prove hard to hold out again.
