BACK (WIN) #4 Buenos Noches for 2 units (Rated at: $2.00)

He looks well placed in this race after an impressive last prep. He was just half a length of Imperatriz at his latest start down the Flemington straight and Nash sticks with the horse after two trials to prepare for this. I would assume the stable would be expecting to win a race at this level if the horse is to reach bigger targets than this during the prep.

LAY (WIN) #9 Thunderlips for 0.5 units (Rated at: $4.00)

Has drawn low and likely gets a good run throughout but he was a big price last start and this is a much stronger race, I can’t get him as short as the current market so I am happy to risk at the current price.

BACK (WIN) #13 Mad Darcey for 0.5 units (Rated at: $5)

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) #8 Whinchat for 1 unit (Rated at: $2.00)

Produced a new PB figure first up and if he can hold around that level into this he will be extremely hard to beat. Further he looks to get an easy time in the lead or on pace in this and with the weight drop from last start he looks well placed to win again.

BACK (WIN) #4 Buenos Noches for 2 units (Rated at: $2.00)

BACK (WIN) #7 Redstone Well for 0.5 units (Rated at: $4.00)

Comes into this third up from a spell and chased home the impressive Glory Daze last start. J Mac going on signals intent to win this race and if he can repeat the last 600m of last start he will go close.

RANDWICK TIPS

Summary

Royal Randwick is located in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, and like Rosehill the racecourse is operated by the Australian Turf Club (ATC). Randwick hosts 20 time-honoured Group 1s each year but today its biggest raceday is The Everest, which at $15 million is the world’s richest turf race. For expert race tips and best bets on The Everest and every Randwick meeting, head to the Betfair Hub.  

Fast Facts

  • Considered the headquarters of Sydney racing, Randwick is on designated public land and is leased to the ATC. 
  • Randwick was given royal status in 1992, when Queen Elizabeth II paid a visit to officially open the Paddock Stand. 
  • During his visit to Australia in 1970, Pope Paul VI held mass at Randwick. Some say racegoers have been seeking divine intervention ever since! 
  • Several scenes in the Mission: Impossible franchise were filmed at Randwick.

Key Events

Over two days each April, Randwick hosts The Championships which offer more than $20 million in prizemoney. Featuring several Group 1s, including the Australian Derby, Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Sydney Cup and Doncaster Handicap, The Championships are the climax of Sydney’s autumn carnival. With comprehensive Randwick tips and a proven track record, our team of tipsters have you covered.   

The feature race of Sydney’s spring carnival is The Everest, which was first run in 2017 and today is the richest turf race held anywhere in the world. The race attracts Australia’s best sprinters, and is the centrepiece of Randwick racing each spring. 

Track Profile

The Rosehill track has a circumference of 2,224m, with the home straight measuring 410m. In its early days Randwick was referred to as the ‘Sandy Course’ due to the poor condition of the track, but today it is considered Sydney’s premier racecourse. 

History

The site was first designated for use as a racecourse in January 1883, with a private raceday held there six months later. For 20 years between 1840 and 1860, the racecourse was only used as a training facility but racing resumed in May 1860 with a crowd of more than 6,000 in attendance. The ATC assumed control of Randwick in 2011, when the Australian Jockey Club and the Sydney Turf Club merged to form a new body.
