Warwick Farm Tips 29/03/2023

Our form expert provides Warwick Farm tips for today’s horse racing at Warwick Farm Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 4:  No.2  CUT ON A DIME  ($1.95 with Unibet)

Coming off a couple of black-type races, the locally-trained CUT ON A DIME drops seriously in grade today and looks the testing material in this contest. Last start, the So You Think colt came off an unplaced run in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas when he achieved a similar result in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill. Well beaten in the event, he still managed to run his last 600m, 7.4 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field by more than 6 lengths. James McDonald takes the reins today and fitter for three runs now, he will test them here.



Race 6:  No.7  ARBITRATION  ($3.40 with Neds)

The James Cummings-trained ARBITRATION ticks all the boxes here and should prove very hard to beat in this contest. Last start, the Street Boss mare was fresh off an 18-week break when she finished third in a BM78 Hcp over 1100m at Randwick. On fresh legs, she covered the trip, 4.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by more than 3 lengths, setting a new personal best as well. James McDonald was aboard that day and after riding the mare to two previous victories, he has the job again today. Already a winner when second-up and unbeaten at the track in two starts, she also boasts two wins on rain affected tracks so the forecast Heavy 8 today shouldn’t pose a problem. She has also won over the 1300m previously and fitter for that first-up run, the Godolphin mare looks the goods here.



Race 3:  No.8  MIRACLE SPIN  ($6.50 with Ladbrokes)

The locally-trained galloper MIRACLE SPIN has managed five top-three finishes from his six career starts to date and third-up today looks poised for another forward showing today. Last start, the British-bred gelding took on BM78 company north of the border where he arrived one stride too late, finishing runner-up over the 1830m trip at Eagle Farm. He ran the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals that day in his attempt to run down the (eventual) winner. Dylan Gibbons is reunited with him today and after his claim, the four-year-old lines-up nicely at the weights here, coming in on the limit with 54kgs to carry. Ironically, he sees his home track for the first time today and already a winner when third-up, looks a serious player in this contest.
