Randwick Quaddie Preview
NSW Winners expert Mark Rhoden brings you his Randwick Quaddie tips, highlighted by the Group 1 Epsom Handicap, on yet another big day of Spring racing in Sydney.
Race 6 – Flight Stakes (1600m)
Selections: 2, 13
Miss Fabulass (2) showed an outstanding turn of foot to dispatch a similar field last start, and she’ll be even better suited at 1600m. Don’t really want to be on any of those that finished behind her. Nakeeta Jane (13) did benefit from a perfect ride last start and she’s being thrown in the deep end here, but she’s on an upward spiral and worth throwing in at big odds.
Race 7 – Epsom Handicap (1600m)
Selections: 2, 3, 7
Very tough effort after a wide trip from Pierata (2) last start, and suffered a setback before that run also. Looks ready to peak here. D’argento (3) is a top class horse who will be very hard to beat if he gets a crack at them from the inside draw. Unforgotten (7) is the third of the “big three” in this year’s Epsom – a mare with outstanding acceleration who’ll need a touch of luck to get a run through the field, but will be a huge chance if she does.
Race 8 – The Metropolitan (2400m)
Selections: 2, 3, 4, 7, 16
Big Duke (2) excels in this distance range. Ran a good second in this race fourth-up last year and looks set to peak again. Libran (3) always gets well back, but is racing very well this prep and no doubt has been set for this race. It’d be a huge training performance to win this with Wall Of Fire (4) first-up after an injury, but he’s very well placed on his best form and J McDonald has taken the ride. Midterm (7) was a big improver last time and looks to get the lead pretty easily here. Definite lightweight chance. Massive class rise here for High Bridge (16), but it ran terrific sectionals in midweek grade last start and drops 10kg here.
Race 9 – Snitzel Sprint (1200m)
Selections: 3, 5, 10, 11, 15
Perizada (3) is a very good mare who chased well in group company last start and can be competitive. Crafty Cop (5) trialled nicely in preparation for this, and can win this if he’s ready to produce his best first-up. Very strong midweek win last time from Coruscate (10), and the wide gate may not be an issue out of the chute with the forecast strong southerly wind. Maximus (11) put in an excellent first-up run and should be even better suited at 1200m. Problem Solver (15) was pushed right out to win her last trial. Looks under the odds but sure to be wound right up and should be included.
