Randwick Tips February 12


Race 1 - 12:25PM Coolmore Pierro Plate Tips (1100m)


Selections: 2,9,6,5.

2. METALLICITY finally debuts, a half-brother to dual group winner Catch Me. He's been the most impressive of the Sydney lot and a had a tick-over trial following a slight setback with a stone bruise. In what's been a weak two-year-old crop to date, this may be the Golden Slipper winner. Have something on him for that if you're keen here.

9. Miss Faberge is a younger sister to Group 1 winners Criterion and Comin' Through, so should get over further. In her second trial, she arguably worked a little better than Xtravagant Star, last week's Millenium winner.

6. Rise Of The Masses looks a tradesman, but is another superbly bred juvenile. Proven in the wet, blinkers go on and the market may find him off the map.

5. Peace Officer is the roughest ($21.00 @ betstar) of three first starters, but I loved his December trial and Nash sticks from both hit outs.

Race 2 - 1:00PM TAB Highway Handicap Tips (1800m)


Selections: 2,4,6,7.

2. HIGHLIGHTS may be country cups horse going forward for Cody Morgan, a progressive four-year-old who carries 59kg again following a third-up Tamworth win, where he safely held Fanmalia and Ah Well, who aren't slouches. That recent form reads well enough and while he has drawn out, Tom Sherry will be rolling across irrespective.

4. Racketeering is a clear threat, a fresh winner that had excuses in the January 29 Highway when held-up at stages. Momentum is key for this galloper, so drawn out on a bigger circuit isn't a knock, now at 1800m third-up.

6. Still In Fashion may sleep with the lights on, although he's always thereabouts and is hard fit for this 1800m tilt. The winkers have now been applied.

7. Dissenter can improve up in trip third-up and will relish a testing event if the rain comes. Worth thought at a big price ($46.00 @ Sportsbet).

Race 3 - 1:35PM Bisley Workwear Handicap Tips (2400m)


Selections: 7,6,9,1.

7. FORTIFIED is no world beater, but is building into the prep well, improving off a solid return to place over the 1900m at Canterbury second-up. Goes sharply up in trip in again, but appears even more dour as a rising five-year-old, so it's a logical move. It's a very open race, but he handles any surface and could be the one peaking here.

6. Casino Kid recorded a brilliant BM78 win two back and only just missed out another a fortnight ago. Certainly, has the turn-of-foot to put them away if he runs out the journey, with the 2400m a query for the first time.

9. Atonement will stay all day, a one-paced, but tough four-year-old that has a good platform with now three staying efforts completed off a freshen-up.

1. Fun Fact has always been hard to catch, but can't ignore the big drop in grade, bringing similar SP's from stakes races.

Race 4 - 2:10PM Midway Handicap Tips (1000m)


Selections: 5,2,1,6.

5. ESTEEMED LADY has taken an interesting route, given that had also accepted for a very winnable city race at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, with this is a handy Midway sprint. I did love the return though, working home with no favours, while with Capital Reign and Delexo putting the speed on, she may be able to slot in behind them early.

2. Capital Reign is furnishing into a good little sprinter after having his quirks early. Worked through the lower grades last campaign and it took a handy Silent Impact to roll him fresh. Back to a 1000m dash is a tick.

1. Delexo is in a similar mould to Capital Reign and has the benefit of a low draw for this return assignment. J-Mac is 1/1 aboard the son of Exosphere.

6. Mabel will find this harder, but is 2/2 this prep and has a fitness edge on the favs. She may get the drop on them late.

Race 5 - 2:45PM George Mullen Farewell Mile Tips (1600m)


Selections: 2,1,6,7.

2. YIYI can strike now third-up. While he was outsprinted by Wairere Falls on January 29, Yiyi was only second-up and three weeks between runs there, so may have just needed that. He has a 1.5kg weight swing on the stablemate from that clash and I do suspect he's a little more effective on wet ground, with more rain predicted on the Friday.

1. Wairere Falls isn't quite as genuine as the fav, but is more brilliant when right, as he did prove at Rosehill last start. The big difference this time is having to sprint from off the speed with 59kg, compared to 56.5kg.

6. O'Mudgee arrives out of the same BM88, where he was never in contention from well back. If they're blending in out wider, he'll get a sniff late.

7. Off Shaw has also accepted for Friday night in a very weak BM72, but has a big weight there. Respecting in either race.

Race 6 - 3:25PM Southern Cross Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 1,12,9,2.

1. LOST AND RUNNING is the way I'm leaning, but there's little between the top 3-4 selections. He does have 61kg, but carried easily weight as he was working through the grades and had 59kg in The Hunter when wide throughout. Has other targets, but expect him to be more forward than early spring, where he was clashing with the elite.

12. Quantico looks thrown in with 53.5kg, as potentially the best out-and-out sprinter among these and hit his straps in spring, which culminated with a listed scalp. He has failed in both attempts on a soft track though.

9. King Of Sparta drops back to 1200m third-up, having been set for the Magic Millions, where he won the 3yo Guineas in style. Has won on a Soft 7.

2. Laws Of Indices would've gone close in Golden Eagle from a better draw and resumes with J-Mac on. Interesting runner.

Race 7 - 4:05PM TAB Light Fingers Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 8,1,12,3.

8. ESPIONA is about the most interesting runner on the day, via a meeting that has Verry Elleegant, Colette etc going around in the next. This filly didn't beat much on Oaks Day, but at just start two, she produced one of the more devasting performances of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. There's a huge hype on her, which the market reflects.

1. Four Moves Ahead was very raw, but prior to Espiona's arrival, was the most gifted filly of this crop. Blinkers are now on, which were applied via a recent Rosehill trial and she worked superbly in both January heats.

12. Zouzarella had come to the end of it in the Thousand Guineas, but was impressive early. Was slick when beating older rivals in a Warwick Farm trial.

3. Jamaea had excuses at the Magic Millions, albeit was never beating King Of Sparta anyway. I do like her back to 1200m.

Race 8 - 4:45PM The Agency Apollo Stakes Tips (1400m)


Selections: 10,9,13,8.

10. COLETTE won last year's Apollo, cashing in off the perfect run to bolt in fresh. The Godolphin mare showed her class last spring, where after a small setback derailed a Caulfield Cup tilt, she won two in a row, including the Group 1 Empire Rose. Her work through the line in a January trial was strong and any rain around will help her chances.

9. Verry Elleegant has bigger fish to fry later and despite obvious first-up queries, I'm not taking her on at $5. Finished third as a beaten fav in this race last year, where she was also coming off a Melbourne Cup campaign.

13. She's Ideel could be the blowout ($34.00 @ TAB), a mare who has been terrific in her last two first-up runs, which included a slashing third in the Winx Stakes.

8. Maximal has more to gain than most here, with an All-Star Mile on the agenda for the three-quarter brother of Frankel.

Race 9 - 5:25PM Robrick Lodge Triscay Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 10,4,7,5.

10. MORE PROPHETS is huge odds fresh in a strong feature for the mares, but she can run a big race. In two victories last spring, we saw the key to More Prophets, which is keeping her where she's most comfortable; wider with cover and building momentum throughout. The wide barrier is ideal and with a tow into it, she can give this a shake.

4. Snapdancer could pinch a Group 1 sprint at some stage, with a Sangster or even a Goodwood attainable for that later on. In-form and still with upside, she's the one to beat, just not sure if the predicted rain arrives.

7. It's Me was running group class times in her first prep, but hasn't been seen since the spring of 2020 due to injury. The recent trial was faultless though.

5. Mirror Vision improved out of sight last year and won a Group 3 in October. Versatile and the January 31 trial was excellent.

Race 10 - 6:00PM Sharp Extensive It Handicap Tips (1300m)


Selections: 9,1,8,2.

9. SHE'S ALL CLASS is a classy filly and promised plenty early, but never came up in the spring and was spelled after a Flight Stakes flop. While she worked nicely in the second of her lead-up trials, it's just hard to be confident after that last prep and the betting could tell the story. If right, I'd bank on her being too slick for these over 1300m.

1. True Detective won at big odds for us fresh and then was held-up in the Carrington at a key stage. Doesn't have the turn-of-foot to then pick-up in those situations, but could be left alone up front with Invinciano.

8. Le Gail Soleil has as much talent as any of these, albeit the 1300m is on the short side. Any rain will help and her two January trials were terrific.

2. Bring The Ransom was an insane price third-up at Rosehill and she duly saluted. Back to a BM88, but is fit and firing.
