Our Randwick best bets are provided by expert form analysts and tipsters, with free betting tips available right here.


Randwick Tips April 16


Race 1 - 11:30AM TAB Highway Handicap Tips (1200m)


Selections: 15,4,12,14.

15. SALIRE is still learning the caper, but has talent, recording two stylish victories so far. He showed a slick turn-of-foot to salute on Feb 7 and while rolled as an odds-on fav at Mudgee, that winner (Great Buy) subsequently broke a class record in a country qualifier. In a big field and off a good tempo, he should be getting home here.

4. Optimo won two of five starts in his second campaign, rounding out the prep with placings in a BM64 along with a Highway. Like Salier, Optimo is a galloper with upside and the April 10 trial was excellent.

12. Markwell Dreamer took out a Randwick Highway on Jan 22 and found traffic in the Class 3 edition that followed. Freshened-up and suited back to this trip.

14. Sparring bolted in on debut before two midweek Melbourne runs, where he was fancied, so respect in a Highway.

Race 2 - 12:05PM Midway Handicap Tips (1400m)


Selections: 11,15,2,7.

11. CONTRIBUTINGFACTOR may be the most progressive runner in this and although a mile now would've been ideal, he can get away with 1400m in Midway company. He improved off a solid return to find the line strongly on March 31, where he was only a stride off grabbing third. Needs galloping room, so the wide draw is okay.

15. Mahagoni was a real eye-catcher in his Australian debut on March 19, where he was well backed. Missed a run last week due to an abandoned card and goes 1500m to 1400m, which is the knock.

2. Different Strokes won three in his first campaign, including a Midway by a margin. Return was fair, J-Mac and Bowman rode him throughout that prep though.

7. Alpha Go is big odds ($31.00 @ Palmerbet), but arrives off a second-up win and has a great soft track record. Maps for a lovely run.


Race 3 - 12:40PM ACY Securities Frank Packer Plate Tips (2000m)


Selections: 4,10,6,2.

4. STRAIGHT ARRON is a short fav, but a deserving one, with this talented Waller three-year-old bouncing off a great return to take out the Carbine Club a fortnight ago. The Championships wasn't the easiest for back-markers, yet he won with authority and while there's more depth here, he does look destined for better things.

10. Lukey Luke comes through back-to-back wins at the provincials, comfortably graduating from a maiden to a Class 1 2000m scalp. He's still doing plenty wrong, but is getting away with it on raw ability.

6. Arnaquer has come class, a gelding that was competitive at stakes level last year (should've won the Dulcify) and this looks a third-up target. He's a decent price ($31.00 @ Neds).

2. Maurice's Medad warrants thought off his form prior to the Derby, but needs firmer than the Heavy 9 reading.

Race 4 - 1:15PM Moet & Chandon Champagne Stakes (1600m)


Selections: 5,1,6,2.

5. FIREBURN backed up an incredible Golden Slipper win to tick the 1400m box via the Sires' and it's hard to say a strong mile against the two-year-old's will be pulling her up. Aiming to become the seventh two-year-old to win the Triple Crown, with Burst (1992) the last filly to do so, she's in the box-seat to record a famous treble.

1. Let'srollthedice will need to be building momentum as he won't sprint with either fav, but he could be your quinella/exacta value option with the fav. The smaller Champagne Stakes field should suit.

6. She's Extreme is the likely leader and on class, she should be running top two/three by default if nothing else. The rise to 1600m looks a genuine query though.

2. Williamsburg is the only mile winner, taking out last Saturday's Fernhill Stakes. The form around him is weak, however.

Race 5 - 1:50PM Mostyncopper James H. B Carr Stakes Tips (1400m)


Selections: 5,2,6,3.

5. PARTY FOR ONE caught the eye in the Gosford Guineas after a maiden win and after two runs this prep, is looking for 1400m, which this filly gets via the James Carr Stakes. Out of a daughter to Grand Archway (dual Oaks winner), she was initially left flat-footed on April 2 when the sprint went on before picking up strongly late.

2. Espiona was the spruik filly following an Oaks Day romp last spring, but hasn't progressed via three autumn runs. This is the easiest race she's seen this prep, but happy to shop around her at $1.80.

6. Comrade Rosa is a filly I've got time for and to the eye, has been looking for 1400m since day one. She's another coming off a good PJ Bell performance.

3. Robodira went close multiple times at stakes level last year and was wide throughout fresh, so forgiving that run.


Race 6 - 2:25PM TAB Hall Mark Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 3,7,2,1.

3. BIG PARADE was hit or miss early days and while short enough at odds-on in a handy sprint, the son of Deep Field looks to get control of this 1200m affair from the front under Josh Parr. He was brave in a narrow Galaxy first-up defeat, holding off the likes of In The Congo and Overpass. Is the one that they'll need to reel in here.

7. Quantico was well backed in the Newmarket fresh, which was only an even effort and the tick-over trial on April 4 was sound. They've been trying to dodge heavy tracks, so he'll need a few upgrades.

6. Gem Song threatened to be Group 1 class last autumn and off a poor spring prep, was sent out a big price fresh, where he won easily. Capable at this level.

1. Kementari has won his last two first-up attempts and this is a nice starting point. 'Special K' handles any conditions.


Race 7 - 3:10PM Sharp Extensive It JRA Plate Tips (2000m)


Selections: 5,1,4,2.

5. KUKERACHA isn't without each-way claims, albeit this is a complete lottery. The 2021 QLD Derby winner never quite went on with it last spring, but the autumn return has been encouraging, getting home strongly over 1500m at Newcastle fresh and the subsequent trial was strong. Maybe a run short, but this isn't out of reach.

1. Icebath has placed nine times at stakes level, yet amazingly hasn't recorded a black-type win, despite earning over $4.2 million. Coming out of much deeper races, with this her first ever 2000m attempt.

4. Brutality was set for the Doncaster, where the blinkers went back on and he got home okay from an impossible position. Looking for this journey now?

2. Polly Grey just missed to Mount Popa and he franked that with a third in the Queen Elizabeth. Wetter the better.


Race 8 - 3:50PM Schweppes All Aged Stakes Tips (1400m)


Selections: 1,6,8,13.

1. MO'UNGA was terrific first-up and aside from beating Verry Elleegant, his Melbourne Spring form was consistently around the best WFA horses. A temperature forced him out of a George Ryder second-up, while freshened right up for this versus rivals that would be tired from the heavy tracks, it could well be a blessing.

6. Laws Of Indices arguably wins a Golden Eagle on Australian debut with a better draw and after a good return, has only found heavy tracks. Could be a big improver if it gets into the soft range.

8. Forbidden Love just didn't quite see out the 1600m of the Doncaster, but was flying prior to that with a winning hat-trick. Is there petrol left in the tank?

13. Hungry Heart has been kept away from the heavy tracks, but could be a bolter ($34.00 @ Palmerbet) here on a predicted drying track.


Race 9 - 4:30PM Silverdale Farm Handicap Tips (1400m)


Selections: 8,5,16,9.

8. KIRWAN'S LANE returns off two strong trials and while his winning form has been over a shade further, this gelding was luckless via a Goulburn Cup over 1400m in spring. Has defeated handy types in his last three victories and went to the paddock off back-to-back triumphs. He's another that'll prefer a few track upgrades.

5. Our Playboy was honest on return before a runner-up to Mr Mozart at Newcastle, where he held a safe margin on third. J-Mac takes the reins and he goes close with any improvement third-up.

16. Huetor needs one more scratching to start, with the import unbeaten from three Australian runs. 1400m is short, but he has less convictions than most of these.

9. Criaderas is onto his 10th jockey, with Nash Rawiller now aboard the Godolphin gelding. He's quirky, but very talented.

Race 10 - 5:05PM Catanach's Handicap Tips (1200m)


Selections: 9,4,11,2.

9. APRIL RAIN looked destined for black-type after a winning hat-trick early last year and while ultimately a little disappointing, she should've won her next two first-up outings, the latest a sick Rosehill beat behind Quantico, who would give these a galloping lesson over 1200m. She's still lightly raced and the lead-up trial was strong.

4. Katalin won two of four runs last prep, defeating Bigboyroy and Brutality via the latest, so still gets in well to a BM88 with 57kg. Was good late at The Valley when placing in a leader dominated affair fresh.

11. Samoot bolted in on Australian debut and then in a Group 3 , had excuses when having to circle them at Rosehill. Back to benchmark level, but stays at 54kg.

2. Fashchanel may have a stakes race in her soon. Will improve at 1400m, but both lead-up trials have been superb.
