Randwick Tips – June 6
To be updated on Thursday
Race 3 – 12:40PM SPORTING CHANCE CANCER FOUNDATION HANDICAP (2000 METRES)
Three starts into this preparation and the Joe Pride-trained STOCKMAN looks nicely placed here, despite the class rise. Nicely-bred, by Tavistock out of a Zabeel mare, the three-year-old has impressed from his six starts to date, with both wins coming in this preparation. He won his maiden, first-up at Goulburn before finishing unplaced at Hawkesbury when second-up in a Class 1 over 1400m. Nine days later, he stepped up to the mile at Wyong where he came from the rear of the field to grab victory, running the best overall race sectionals in the process. Pride now brings the young gelding to the city and the step up in trip looks ideal for him at this stage. Sam Clipperton jumps aboard for the ride and he looks a solid each-way chance here.
Race 6 – 2:30PM CALYX @ COOLMORE AUSTRALIA HANDICAP (1500 METRES)
The lightly-raced BOLD AND WILD has won his last three straight and second-up here looks well-placed to go on with it. The Redoute’s Choice gelding ended his last campaign with back-to-back wins. At his third race start, he destroyed his maiden rivals at Wyong, putting more than six lengths on them over 1350m on a wet track. Then five weeks later, stepped out onto a Good 3 at Hawkesbury, he put away a Class 4 field over 1400m carrying 60kgs on the day. First-up after eight months in the paddock and on fresh legs, he beat home his 12 opponents in a BM70 over 1200m at Warwick Farm. With so much early pace drawn inside him here, Glen Boss should manage to cross for a sit behind them on settling. The step up to 1500m also looks ideal and he looks a solid winning chance.
Race 8 – 3:50PM OCTAGONAL HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Racing without much luck of late, the Chris Waller-trained DEALMAKER looks set make amends here. The Dundeel gelding finished the worse off in a three-way photo with the Godolphin pair of Ranier and Phaistos here two starts back. Finishing strongly, he ran into the back of Desert Lord and had to steady, costing him momentum and the race. Last start, he stepped up BM88 company and sat three-deep most of the way. He stormed home to miss by a whisker, finishing second to Grand Piano over 1600m on a soft Randwick track. Conditions are forecast to be similar on Saturday which should suit the four-year-old after both career wins have come on rain affected tracks. Brenton Avdulla returns for his third crack at victory on him and drawn much better here, he looks right in the mix.
