Randwick Quaddie Preview
NSW Winners expert Mark Rhoden is back with his Randwick Quaddie tips for the start of Spring.
He’s taking on Miss Fabulass in the third leg, before coming home with just two selections in a skinny final leg.
Race 6 – Tramway Stakes (1400m)
Selections: 1, 2, 4, 9
Pierata (4) put in a very good return and should be even better suited at 1400 metres. Looks to get a perfect run with McDonald and clearly the one to beat. Le Romain (1) is too close to Pierata in the early market in my opinion, but he’s certainly the main danger. Comin’ Through (2) is a very consistent horse who was narrowly beaten first-up last time in. Looks attractively priced. Lanciato (9) has the capacity to go to a new level this preparation. Always gets back but he’ll hit the line hard if they can run on.
Race 7 – Chelmsford Stakes (1600m)
Selections: 7, 13, 15
Unforgotten (15) has a big spring in front of her and did all that was required behind Winx first up. She’ll be even better later over more ground and the market hasn’t missed her, but she has to go in. Single Gaze (13) controversially resumes for Chris Waller after the shortest retirement in racing history. Her trials have been inconclusive but she was beaten an inch by Hartnell first-up last time in and her class will take her a long way in this. Prized Icon (7) made a terrific return when second in the Spring Preview first-up, splitting some in-form horses. Expecting a positive ride from the gate and a bold showing.
Race 8 – Furious Stakes (1200m)
Selections: 1, 2, 3, 4
Pure Elation (3) made good improvement in her first prep and comes into this off two soft trials. Has upside and is in good hands. Oohood (1) is still a maiden, but multiple Group 1 placings are testament to her ability. Totally unsuited first up and can improve here in blinkers from a better gate. Fiesta (2) was perfectly ridden to win first-up, but very honest and a definite chance again. Outback Barbie (4) was unluckily beaten first-up. Has a tendency to miss the start and is drawn badly, but I don’t want to totally risk her at a reasonable price with McDonald on. (I’m opposing Miss Fabulass (12). She certainly has the capacity to make the improvement and win this, but all that upside is certainly priced in at around $3.50).
Race 9 – Heineken 3 Handicap (1400m)
Selections: 5, 7
Sir Plush (5) has some excellent form at 1400 metres and can reproduce that with a positive ride here. Looks a nice price in the early market. Best Of Days (7) was totally luckless on his Australian debut. The market has certainly picked up on that and he may want further now, but he has to be included.
