Randwick Tips Royal Randwick Racecourse

Looking for Randwick tips on Saturday or want midweek runners to back?

Our form analysts give you the best bets for a profitable day of punting.

Royal Randwick is one of Sydney’s premier racecourses and is home to many prestigious Group 1 races throughout the autumn and spring.

As well as the main track, Randwick Racecourse contains a second track known as Kensington.


Ideally placed here, ART CADEAU has drawn a better gate and lines up a genuine winning chance. Two starts back, the Artie Schiller gelding revelled in the heavy going at Rosehill where he comfortably took out a Highway Class 3 over 1200m. Then last start, he came off a four-week freshen-up and dropping back in grade beat all but one home in a Highway Class 2 at the same track, on a Good 4. He drew wide that day and was travelled three-deep to the turn where he fanned even wider. The four-year-old ran home strongly to finish second, beaten a length on the line. He ran the last 600m 5.7 lengths quicker than benchmark, 5 lengths better than his opposition here, and brings into this event, the best PB, finishing 5.4 lengths better than benchmark in that Class 3 win two starts back. He has a glowing resume, having never finished worse than second from his eight career starts and with Tommy Berry sticking with him here, from gate three he looks set to do it again.


Third-up here, the Waterhouse/Bott-trained SACRAMENTO is back in winning form and looks every chance of going back-to-back in this contest. Last start, the Pierro gelding showed good fighting spirit to ward off his challenges when winning a BM78 over 1800m at Randwick. He ran that trip out 10.6 lengths quicker than benchmark equalled here by just one other. His personal best was set two starts back, when finishing third in a BM78 over the same journey. That day he ran it out 12.7 lengths quicker than benchmark which is the best in this field. Sam Clipperton was onboard for both fresh runs and remains with the four-year-old here. He draws wide here but has good early gate speed and should manage to cross and settle on pace. Placed twice from two previous third-up runs, he looks well placed here to go one better.


Shooting for some value in the last of the day, the Chris Waller-trained MATOWI looks a solid each-way chance in this contest. Two starts back, the Ocean Park gelding was coming off a BM88 win over the mile at Kembla Grange where he lined up against similar company at Randwick. He drew the car park that day (13 of 14) and settling near last, never got into the race, but finished fifth, beaten only three lengths on the line. Then last start, conditions were the same, and again drew poorly (gate 12 of 12). He managed to settle mid-field this time and finished a lot closer in sixth place behind Bigboyroy, beaten just a length on the line. He covered the trip, 5.7 lengths quicker than benchmark and ran the fastest last 600m race sectional as well. Six starts back, he ran a personal best over the 1600m at this track, 10.9 lengths quicker than benchmark which is the best PB in this field. After early scratchings, he jumps from gate seven here and has Hugh Bowman replacing James McDonald (who rides the stablemate Betcha Flying here). Bowman boasts a glowing record with the galloper, having won three times on him from six starts. The five-year-old looks much better placed here than his last two runs and looks good value with the bagmen.
