Randwick Tips December 26


TAB HIGHWAY CLASS 3 HANDICAP Tips (Race 2)

Randwick Roughie - Race 2 No. 10 Tickler

Off the back of no public trials, this son of Deep Field was supported first-up on December 12 ($7.00-$5.50) and although the five-length defeat doesn't indicate it, it wasn't a bad effort considering he was given absolutely no chance with the very negative tactics that were adopted and his late work was fine.

Tickler competed in town via his entire first preparation which included a debut win at Warwick Farm and although safely held on both occasions, wasn't disgraced behind genuine city class gallopers that include Tailleur, Switched, Travest, Frosty Rocks and Dancing Gidget, which are all superb form lines for a Highway.

This four-year-old will eventually get over a little more ground but with barrier two this time around, the onus is on Sam Clipperton to be more positive early and whilst there's a host of chances in this contest, the early price does seem a decent overreaction. 

SCHWEPPES HANDICAP Tips (Race 3)

Randwick Best Bet - Race 3 No. 5 Zing

On a tough Randwick meeting for a standout, we'll go the way of this well-bred four-year-old from the Chris Waller yard who although trialled well, the market didn't want to be near her first-up ($6.50-$9.50) and whilst it wasn't eye-catching by any means, the one length defeat into third was a definite pass mark.

By Zoustar and out of a Group One winning mare in Zirna, Zing was plain first-up last campaign at a big price before exploding to win second-up at the Provincials and after making it back-to-back triumphs, had excuses in a three-length Rosehill defeat when racing wide throughout in a Benchmark 78 and had come to the end of the preparation from there.

This four-year-old is technically up in grade, but plummets 5kg in the weights for her trouble and in what's quite a modest Saturday event, she should get every chance stepping straight to a mile from a good gate under James McDonald.

HEINEKEN SUMMER CUP Tips (Race 6)

Randwick Feature Tip - Race 6 No. 8 Primitivo

This six-year-old from the John Thompson stable isn't necessarily the easiest to catch, hence the price, but off an excellent second-up performance without any favours, he warrants respect in this Group Three feature now getting to 2000m which will suit.

Primitivo was in need of the gallop first-up via an even return in the Festival Stakes before coming back to Benchmark 88 level on December 12 where with 61kg on his back, attempted a wide and long run from the rear where he just peaked late on the effort, so there's plenty of improvement to come.

With Greysful Glamour, Wolfe, Spirit Ridge and Vadiyann looking to find forward positions from wider draws, we'd love for Jay Ford to at least hold up from barrier three to keep them in sight and back to 53kg, he can pounce in the run home with a smoother run-in transit.

SKY RACING ACTIVE HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)

Randwick Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 11 Knickpoint

A Godolphin four-year-old who although showed a stack of promise early days, has been very inconsistent since then when failing to build on a strong February win at Canterbury via some spaced-out performances over the autumn and winter period.

Whilst his debut win came on heavy ground, Knickpoint hasn't looked as comfortable on really testing tracks following that so with this circuit currently in the Soft 7 range, he doesn't want any downgrades and the weather forecast doesn't look as dire what was predicted earlier in the week, so it might be okay in that regard.

The son of Carlton House did race quite keenly in a few of those most recent defeats and is somewhat still a work in progress in that regard, but after being eased back first-up, rattled off the fastest last 600m for the December 12 card from Randwick and with James McDonald sticking, he's more than capable of figuring here.

THE AGENCY REAL ESTATE HANDICAP Tips (Race 9)

Randwick Value Bet - Race 9 No. 8 Dunbrody Power

Whilst she was still competitive last campaign, Dunbrody Power has returned to her best this preparation and with now three runs under her belt, I'm willing to give her another chance after her third-placed finish as one of our best bets on December 5 at Rosehill.

The 1100m was as short as she wanted it first-up on the Kensington circuit but class got her there just in time and stepping out to the 1200m on the November 21 program from Kembla Grange, picked herself up after enduring a tough to still savage the line over the concluding stages.

Although she loses the services of Hugh Bowman. this daughter of All Too Hard gets the benefit of a 2kg Chris Williams claim which sees her remain at 56kg despite dropping back to a Fillies & Mares field and off the third-up effort when only balancing up late, drawn out a little more should suit, especially on this bigger track and with more speed engaged.

Verdict

Zing (Race 3) is looking to follow a similar second-up pattern to her last campaign and finds a very winnable race on Saturday.

Knickpoint (Race 7) and Dunbrody Power (Race 9) are two of the better each-way chances on the card.

Primitivo (Race 6) is big odds in the Summer Cup but shouldn't be far away now third-up and has claims.
