Randwick Quaddie Preview
While it’s Caulfield Cup day in Melbourne, the quality Spring racing continues further north as well.
NSW Winners pro-punter Mark Rhoden brings you his Randwick Quaddie tips.
Race 6 – Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m)
Selections: 7, 9
Roosevelt (7) got to the right spot last start at Warwick Farm but absolutely flew. Has always had big wraps on him and is delivering now. Diplomatico (9) has come back lengths better this preparation and looks an outstanding type of racehorse. Has a beautiful, big striding action so not sure what a wet track will mean, but the breed generally handle it.
Race 7 - The Nivison (1200m)
Selections: 3, 8, 9, 10, 11
Eckstein (3) won in Open Listed company in Melbourne last start and is always competitive in this type of mares race. Wet track shouldn’t be a problem. Test The World (8) has handled soft tracks, and should roll forward from her gate here and race on the speed in a moderate tempo. Resin (9) had a dominant win in midweek company last start, and looks to have come back a better horse this time in. Can measure up to this level. Dyslexic (10) is an unknown in the ground, but comes into this off a very stylish trial. Won first up last prep. Warranty (11) put in a very good run off a slow pace last start and can be closer in the run here. Wet track won’t bother her.
Race 8 – Clubs NSW Handicap (1200m)
Selections: 3, 4, 6, 10
Crafty Cop (3) was never on the track first-up and has won on the heavy. Can improve. Marsupial (4) is a big chance to improve, back to Sydney off a very nice trial on a heavy track. Both Sydney runs by Maximus (6) have been excellent, handles the wet. The one to beat. Noble Joey (10) is a fit wet tracker on a quick back-up. Steps up to 1200m but drops in weight and should lead here.
Race 9 – Jem Computer Systems Handicap (1400m)
Selections: 4, 5, 10, 15
Don’t Give A Damn (4) is certainly the best horse here, and likes wet. This may be an afterthought but he must be included. Right Or Wrong (5) has handled soft tracks and the 1400m looks suitable now. Definite chance. Conarchie (10) absolutely loves wet tracks. Must be included with conditions likely to suit. Mahalangur (15) didn’t beat much in his first-up win in midweek grade, but has upside and can’t really oppose him here.
With $7,000 profit since June, and over $13,000 profit since September 2017, Mark is a proven performer who continues to take the bookies to the cleaners.
