Randwick Tips – February 19
Race 5 – 4:05PM TAB HANDICAP (1800 METRES)
CINQUEDEA comes out of an extremely strong form race having been beaten 1.6 lengths by She’s Ideel while running 11.4 lengths quicker than standard BM over 2000m at Randwick. She’s Ideel franked the form with a 2400m victory at Randwick last Saturday where she beat Dark Pearl who finished 5th in the 2000m event. Dylan’s Romance was 7th in the 2000m race and also franked the form with a win over 1800m at Canterbury last Friday. Cinquedea’s last start effort rates nearly seven lengths better than Mugatoo who lines up as favourite in this event. Mugatoo has plenty of upside being second-up, but he also carries 10kg more than last start which makes it hard to assess his chances here. Cinquedea if sixth-up and at peak fitness, and the drop back to 1800m looks ideal considering he weakened late after hitting the front last time.
Race 6 – 4:40PM STAR TURN @ VINERY HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
This is quite an open event, but I think HERZEGOVINA represents great value and is worth chancing the arm on. The All Too Hard gelding charged home first-up over 1000m and then ground it out last start over 1200m finishing 1.5 lengths from Riverside’s Cash who has won three of his last four starts. It appeared to be fitness giving out late with Herzergovina, and I’m sure he’ll improve third-up as he gets out to 1400m. His two runs this time in have been his best to date, and considering he generally improves his BM performance third-up, he looks set to post a new personal best which would see him go close to winning this.
