Randwick Tips April 2


Race 1 - 12:10PM Widden Kindergarten Stakes Tips (1100m)


Selections: 5,10,1,4.

5. VOLDEMORT can take a trail off Nominator, Semillioin, Asteria, Ginger's Gal and Calgary Stampede, who should ensure a fast tempo here, albeit you could give chances to most of these. This colt produced a big finish to win at Scone on debut, overcoming a few traffic issues to let down nicely and will naturally improve from that. Heavy track?

10. Ginger's Gal is a half-sister to Group 3 winner Irukanji and while the trials have been professional, this filly should get over more ground in time. She does have tactical speed, so Damian Lane can use barrier four.

1. Semillion has the best exposed form, winning the Inglis Banner on debut and beat the subsequent Blue Diamond winner fresh. Back in grade/down in trip suits.

4. Nominator bolted in with a Gosford maiden first-up, which was on a Heavy 8. There's a lot more pressure here though.

Race 2 - 12:45PM Fujitsu General Carbine Club Stakes Tips (1600m)


Selections: 3,1,2,8.

3. STRAIGHT ARRON could be a QLD Derby, or perhaps an Adelaide Derby contender. Spelled after a Sandown debut win on Jan 5, he resumed over 1400m on a Heavy 9 and was strong late for second, putting nearly six lengths on third in the process and 1600m now is perfect. Is on an upwards spiral, whereas his main rivals may have already peaked.

1. Flying Crazy has a lovely turn-of-foot, which was first on display in a big debut win last prep has won 2/4 this time in, including the Canberra Guineas. Now has to stretch to a testing mile, which is the main query.

2. Jalmari picked up again late in the Ajax Stakes, so is looking for this trip and is now back against the three-year-olds. Short enough at sub $5 off his prior form.

8. Dark Dream is a heavy track winner and can improve third-up at a long price ($41.00 @ Neds) over a mile. He might be one for the exotics.

Race 3 - 1:20PM TAB Adrian Knox Stakes Tips (2000m)


Selections: 12,4,5,1.

12. MAMOUNIA has an unusual platform here, going 1300m-2000m second-up, albeit went 1500m-2000m when bolting in with her maiden and off that excellent return, along with a tick-over trial, is clearly here by design. James Cummings used the Adrian Knox route for Colette in 2020 prior to winning the Australian Oaks seven days later.

4. Secret Glamour steps to 2000m off a March 15 trial, having last raced over 1600m on Feb 9. From the powerful Maher & Eustace yard and with blinkers going on, she's big odds ($18.00 @ PlayUp) in a race lacking standouts.

5. Charity Spirit was initially left flat-footed in the Kembla Grange Classic, but stuck on and pushed a progressive Paternal second-up. The 2000m should suit now.

1. Roots is classy, but arrives off a Heavy 8 flop. Was five weeks between runs there, however and the recent trial was good.

Race 4 - 1:55PM Schweppes Chairman's Quality Tips (2600m)


Selections: 3,6,1,12.

3. SURPRISE BABY appeared to have seen better days, but Gavin Bedggood has him ticking over well this prep. He recorded the fastest last 200m of Carylon Cup fresh and a month between runs into the Australian Cup, he was getting warm late at Flemington. We know his best would take care of this lot and he's a decent price for the risk.

6. Zeyrek was a big second-up winner over 2000m and had the Queen's Cup shot to bits before dipping at a key stage. Returns to Randwick, carries 2kg less and draws for a gun run under William Pike.

1. Stockman has never carried weight at this level, but is the form runner, beating Mount Popa (won last week) before a Tancred second behind the classy Duais.

12. Chalk Stream endured a tough run in the Queens Cup and was wayward late there. A chance, short enough as fav though.

Race 5 - 2:35PM Newhaven Park Country Championship Final Tips (1400m)


Selections: 2,3,4,8.

2. FAR TOO EASY does look the obvious on class, a three-year-old that's won 5/8 overall, including a Brisbane metro scalp, while he was listed placed prior to a very competitive effort in Magic Millions 3yo Guineas. Is now taking on country horses. winning the Grafton qualifier despite covering ground. A genuine heavy surface is the unknown.

3. Another One should've won this last year, racing wide throughout for second behind Art Cadeau, who had every favour. His following campaign was disappointing, but did bounce back strongly at Wagga.

4. Testator Silens has won 5/6, which importantly includes a Heavy 10 victory and he ticked the 1400m box at Nowra. He's tactically versatile, so has plenty of early options.

8. Commando Hunt is a two-time winner on heavy ground and hard-fit with two 1400m runs, he has claims at a big price ($19.00 @ Sportsbet).

Race 6 - 3:15PM Inglis Sires' Tips (1400m)


Selections: 12,3,11,10.

12. FIREBURN recorded a Golden Slipper win for the ages, bolting in with Australia's premier two-year-old event despite receiving major interference approaching the 700m. Remaining on preferred heavy ground, the main query is now backing up two weeks later from that big effort, as if she holds her current form, then this looks hers to lose.

3. Let'srollthedice landed a Group 2 win on Super Saturday, taking out the VRC Sires' in a professional performance over 1400m. Draws for another midfield trail under Lane and won his debut on a Heavy 9.

11. Brosnan had some excuses behind Let'srollthedice in Melbourne and can settle closer here, now finally drawing a gate. Blinkers go on and Clark takes the reins.

10. Showcourt was held-up at a key stage in the Todman and Sejardan was luckless in the Slipper after that. 1400m suits.


Race 7 - 3:55PM Bentley Australian Derby Tips (2400m)


Selections: 1,8,5,11.

1. HITOTSU went 1600m to 2500m in the VRC Derby, so this Australian Derby pattern is of no concern, it's just whether that proves correct on testing ground. With spring classics on the radar and an Australian Guineas already on the resume, there's no point in risking if there's doubt, so have to back in the very astute Maher & Eustace yard.

8. Character won Monday's Tulloch Stakes with a fair bit in hand and has tactical speed, so Berry can land behind Castlereagh Kid and Zoumon early. This Godolphin colt is starting to really furnish now.

5. Regal Lion rattled home in that Tulloch, albeit the bookies didn't miss it. Given the imposing Australian Derby record of Baker/Forsman, he warrants respect.

11. Raging Bull is very one-paced, but he'll stay, as was evident in the VRC Derby last spring. Perhaps the pick of the blowouts ($41.00 @ TopSport).

Race 8 - 4:35PM Furphy TJ Smith Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 1,6,11,2.

1. NATURE STRIP is looking to join Chautauqua with a TJ Smith Stakes hat-trick and off a similar set-up to his prior grand finals over this track/trip, he has to be the one to beat. A messy start proved costly first-up in a narrow Lightning loss and while a little plain visually via the Challenge Stakes, that's not uncommon for him second-up.

6. Shelby Sixtysix has been a remarkable rags to riches story, nearly upsetting Eduardo before back-to-back victories, including The Galaxy. Was defeated nearly two lengths in a Sapphire Coast Class 2 on Jan 30.

11. Paulele is unbeaten from five attempts at Randwick and had excuses fresh in The Galaxy. Clearly had a setback after the return win, so can improve at a price ($15.00 @ Palmerbet).

2. Eduardo has always fallen short over the Randwick 1200m, but is the second-best sprinter here. Obviously, a big chance.

Race 9 - 5:15PM The Star Doncaster Mile Tips (1600m)


Selections: 3,16,8,7.

3. PRIVATE EYE was the only runner making any impression from back in the field via the Canterbury Stakes and was clearing out from the rest. Forgive the George Ryder effort, where he was briefly held-up towards the inside in a sprint home and was the most unsuited in that. He's much better placed at Randwick, especially with more tempo.

16. Forbidden Love is about the best weighted horse you'll see in a handicap, plummeting to 50kg despite back-to-back Group 1 wins at WFA level. Flying, has options from the draw and relishes heavy going.

8. Inspirational Girl rolled Zaaki in an underrated second-up win and then was back in a muddling All-Star Mile. Classy mare down in the weights, she's big odds here ($26.00 @ Sportsbet).

7. Ellsberg bolted in first-up on a Heavy 10 and is always a little flat second-up, yet still nearly won the Ajax. He can lead.

Race 10 - 5:50PM China Horse Club P J Bell Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 13,7,3,2.

13. ZAPATEO brings the Mazu form to a filly's race, a galloper she peaked late against first-up and ridden a little colder in the Fireball, she finished off well around similar threats here. We saw James Cummings take this approach with Emanate, i.e. two runs followed by a little freshen-up and then a trial, before peaking third-up over 1200m.

7. Me Me Lagarde would be a little shorter on firmer ground, a Brisbane filly who went back-to-back before a big Magic Millions effort. Has trialled twice ahead of this, but is yet to race on a heavy track.

3. Mallory handles any conditions and is being kept to the sprinting caper despite a 1400m placing last spring. She's very honest, but is getting quite costly for punters.

2. Sneaky Five was a little plain first-up, but comes back around a bend and worked well in her subsequent Sydney trial.
