Race 3 - 3:10PM THE AGENCY REAL ESTATE HANDICAP BM72 (1800 METRES)
Bookies has this event down as a race in four with DREAM RUNNER (best odds $5.50 with BlueBet) right there as one of them. Last start, the Wilful Default gelding recorded his sixth podium finish from eight starts this time in when he beat all but Yiyi home (our Best Value tip that day) in a BM78 over 2000m on Randwick’s main track. His stats were glowing for that race, running the trip, 12.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here by 12 lengths. That was also a new personal best for him. He drops back in grade a little here and accordingly has more weight to carry but also comes back in distance today. Robbie Dolan takes the reins for the first time here and from gate five, maps to settle just behind the early pace, about two pairs back. Placed twice from three starts here, he is in great touch and should be there at the finish.
Race 4 - 3:50PM HARRY ANGEL @ DARLEY HANDICAP BM72 (1000 METRES)
Wyong-based galloper DELEXO(best odds $2.80 with Palmerbet) missed out on a hat-trick at Randwick but looks every chance of bouncing back here today. Last start, the Exosphere gelding came off back-to-back wins off an 18-week break when he stepped up in grade and took on a BM78 over the 1000m sprint on Randwick’s main track. He fought bravely to the line but couldn’t match it with Fox Fighter on the day, having to settle for the runner-up’s cheque. He ran the trip, 4.4 lengths quicker than benchmark, setting a new personal best and rating the best here. Jason Collett has control today and from gate one, geta all the favours and maps to be on-speed. On debut here, he is in outstanding form this time in and will take beating here.
Race 7 - 5:50PM VINERY HANDICAP BM72 (1300 METRES)
The Rosehill-based LE VIZIR (best odds $3.30 with Sportsbet) clobbered them first-up at Warwick Farm and is clearly our Best Bet 🏆 for today’s meeting. Last start, the four-year-old was fresh off a 19-week break when he faced a BM72 field over 1200m at the Farm. He drew the car park (gate 12 of 12) and settled mid-field, three-wide with cover. He took over inside the final 300m and just went on with it from there, putting almost four lengths on them over the line. He ran the trip, 7.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, 3 lengths better than this field, and setting a new personal best as well. He also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. A super effort on fresh legs from the outside gate. Better drawn in gate six today, he will strip fitter for that first-up run and Robbie Dolan (who is two from two with the galloper) sticks with him here. He looks an improving type who can easily make his track debut a winning one.
