Randwick (Kensington) Tips 29/06/2022

Our form expert previews Wednesday’s meeting at Randwick Racecourse and gives his best bets.


KARLSTAD  (Race 5,  No. 6 – $4.80)

The Chris Waller-trained KARLSTAD has come back in good form and looks a genuine winning chance in this company. Last start, the Sacred Falls gelding came off a second-up win at Canterbury when he stepped-up in distance and finished third in a BM72 Hcp over the 1800m at Rosehill. He set a new personal best that day, running the trip out, 1 length quicker than benchmark, second-best (by a whisker) to Steplee (who sees the track and distance for the first time). He draws wide here but has good early gate speed and maps to settle better than mid-field here. Hugh Bowman sticks with him today and after three runs back, the four-year-old should be at his peak now. He looks the testing material here.



JAI  LEI  (Race 6,  No. 2 – $4.20)

John O’Shea saddles-up JAI LEI here and second-up today will take beating. Last start, the Sebring gelding was fresh off a 14-week break where he finished sixth in a BM72 Hcp over 1200m at Warwick Farm. He ran that trip out in even time, second-best here behind Hasstobegood (who is yet to make the podium in five starts this preparation). O’Shea keeps Reece Jones on board today and although drawing wide (gate 11), he is a known backmarker and should settle quickly. The stable put the blinkers back on today and with a clear run to the line, he can finish over the top of them. Already a winner when second-up and has saluted at the track and distance, he can give this a real shake today.



LE  VIZIR   (Race 7,   No. 9 – $6.00)

The Team Snowden-trained Le Vizir is second-up off almost six months away from the track and with that first-up run behind him, looks a genuine chance of victory here at odds today. Last start, the four-year-old wasn’t disgraced when finishing fifth in a BM78 Hcp over 1200m, here on the main track. He ran his last 600m 6.9 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by 8 lengths. William Pike has the reins for the first time today and gets the gun-run from gate one. Already a winner when second-up and dropping in grade here, he is our value bet today.
