Randwick Tips October 1

Race 1 - 11:50AM Arrowfield Breeders' Plate Tips (1000m)

Selections: 7,9,3,8.

Early season juvenile affairs are raffles to bet on and I'll comment just off the trials. Finishing second under his own steam in the second fastest heat on Sept 19 was 7. PHYSICAL GRAFFITI, who isn't bred to go early, coming from a NZ middle distance/staying family. Was seemingly one of the few not have the kitchen sink thrown at him that morning and was the best worker among the colts.

Jump, run and responding to riding, 9. Tarabeau looked your typical Waterhouse & Bott two-year-old via his public hit-out. Has mainly a speed-on-speed pedigree and he'll push forward under Bayliss from a wide barrier.

Respect any moves for 3. Insane Volt at a huge price ($41.00 @ GetSetBet). Although green in his trial, he was bolting before a gap closed and then was under a very firm grip.

I suspect 8. Snatchreilly takes as much from the trials as any, as he raced tight and then picked-up. Bred to get further.

Race 2 - 12:25PM Keeneland Gimcrack Stakes Tips (1000m)

Selections: 12,7,4,11.

The filly's market is solely framed on their trial times, understandable, albeit a somewhat flawed logic given the varying levels of intent and trial patterns. J-Mac stays aboard 12. SICILIAN, who is out of a half-sister to a Gimcrack winner (Jorda), with McDonald also steering that galloper to victory in 2016. Was mostly on the bridle when winning a Sept 19 heat, loojing very professional there.

Stablemate 7. Perfect Proposal heads the market, a stronger and more robust filly who was there to run time in her hit-out, with the encouraging sign being that she responded to early pressure. She's still quite raw, however.

While the overall time of her trial win was slow for the Sept 19 sets. 4. Just Gisella showed race craft when taking a sit and then showing a turn-of-foot.

11. Satin And Silk wasn't knocked about late. Is out of a Silver Slipper winner and is a half-sister to the 2017 Gimcrack winner.

Race 3 - 1:00PM Schweppes Handicap Tips (1600m)

Selections: 6,13,10,14.

While he always needs that pinch of luck with his racing pattern, 6. CASINO KID has a good strike rate considering and he rarely (if ever) puts in a bad one. Proved his city class credentials over summer and has handled the weight rises this campaign, with this gelding at his best on rain affected ground. He's as genuine as any of these and should be charging home again at an each-way quote.

After pushing a very smart Waterford second-up, 13. Mahagoni did look a good thing on Sept 17 and he duly saluted. Well up in class here from a Midway to a BM88, but plummets in the weights and still looks on the up.

10. Tamerlane is another with Waterford form, although was safely held and his prior form around Military Expert reads well. He maps for a soft run here.

14. Arnold has a future and he was looking for this trip after his return. It did look an end of prep run last start, though.

Race 4 - 1:35PM Fujitsu General Hill Stakes Tips (2000m)

Selections: 8,2,1,6.

Although this isn't the target, 8. MONTEFILIA stands out as one of the stronger winning chances on a bumper card. A four-time Group 1 winner that took out the Metrop 12 months ago, she's effective on all surfaces and on a Heavy 9 second-up last prep, she gave Verry Elleegant a galloping lesson in the Ranvet (WFA). Class horse in the race at her pet distance, she should be putting this lot away.

I felt 2. Numerian may have been targeted at a Metrop and they've opted for this over the Turnbull Stakes. With a little spell after back-to-back wins, he was strong against the track pattern fresh and the tick-over trial was sharp.

While 1. Cascadian is more recognised as a seven/eight-furlong horse, he has placed in a Mackinnon Stakes over this trip. Should finish top four by default.

6. Luncies was terrific in the Cameron at Newcastle, sustaining a long run in a narrow defeat. Is also accepted for the Turnbull.

Race 5 - 2:10PM Drinkwise Dulcify Stakes Tips (1600m)

Selections: 3,2,1,4.

Any further rain should only help the chances of 3. OWEN COUNTY, who is sharper than your typical John Sargent three-year-old. The son of Dundeel won two of his first three before a JJ Atkins tilt and the tongue tie was applied after a poor Aug 24 return. It was a much-improved showing last start, making ground behind Quality Time, who then bolted in last week. Back against his own age group now.

2. Flag Of Honour made late inroads first-up behind Golden Mile fresh. Undefeated from two runs in his first prep (both on wet tracks), it's now a matter of whether he can use gate one, as he hasn't shown tactical speed to date.

Another from the Ming Dynasty is 1. Williamsburg, who was a little one-paced over seven furlongs, with 1600m on testing ground a much better set-up.

Surprised 4. Communist is fav with this big rise in grade, although he's improving with every start and he has a fitness edge.

Race 6 - 2:45PM Darley Flight Stakes Tips (1600m)

Selections: 5,1,2,10.

I'm surprised that each-way odds are available for 5. WOLVERINE, who looks set for a peak performance third-up in the Flight Stakes. Was four weeks between runs in the Tea Rose Stakes after making out blackbook file fresh, and has produced another slashing effort, with the second fastest last 600m of that key lead-up. Finally draws an alley for Jason Collett, after wide gates over her last two runs.

Only a savage on-pace bias cost 1. Fireburn the Sydney Triple Crown via the Champagne Stakes over this track/trip. Backing up from a solid Golden Rose effort, this filly continues to firm, as she thrives on wet ground.

Champagne Stakes winner 2. She's Extreme was a little plain last week, but was enormous fresh, so that may have flattened her. Wet track is a big tick.

10. Whisker To Whisker is an outsider ($161.00 @ BoomBet) and although likely outclassed, monitor her with a Spring Champion/VRC Oaks in mind.

Race 7 - 3:25PM Bisley Workwear Premiere Stakes Tips (1200m)

Selections: 1,12,3,7.

Outside of Nature Strip, the clear run of The Shorts was 1. LOST AND RUNNING, who continued to surge late off a wide run, with the six-year-old sailing past Mazu, who had more favours and with a more economical run here, he can easily turn the tables on Overpass, who he beat by nearly two lengths in Feb, despite spotting him 4.5kg (level weights here). From a better draw, he's clearly the one to beat.

While anything worse than a Soft 7 is an unknown, 12. It's Me is still decent odds ($21.00 @ Neds). Was destined for this level before injury and after a Brisbane kill fresh, there were excuses at Rosehill when held-up and in restricted room.

Against the absolute elite for the first time, it was a pass mark fresh for 3. Mazu, who could simply be an out-and-out mudder. Unbeaten on heavy ground.

7. Private Eye is a chance in just about anything he contests. Was Group 1 placed first-up last prep and has trialled up well.

Race 8 - 4:05PM TAB Epsom Tips (1600m)

Selections: 5,1,8,12.

For a mare that's won over $4.5 million in prizemoney and been Group 1 placed five times, 5. ICEBATH somehow still hasn't won a stakes race. Dodging what was a gimme in the Tibbie Stakes, she instead contested the George Main, where she rattled home behind Anamoe and that followed a slashing second to Zaaki. Brings elite WFA form and this is the best chance she'll get to win a Group 1.

While he was gifted the Bill Ritchie, 1. Top Ranked still had to produce fresh with a big weight and the penny may well have dropped now. Providing the return hasn't flattened him, then he simply could be the best horse here.

8. Hinged is the best weighted horse in the Epsom, coming back to 51.5kg after a third in the George Main. Handles all conditions and this looks the target.

12. War Eternal is well up in class, but has group form as a three-year-old and he draws to do no work with a low weight.

Race 9 - 4:45PM Furphy Metropolitan Tips (2400m)

Selections: 1,7,15,2.

Joe Pride is an expert on getting one peaking for their grand final, with The Metrop the clear target for 1. STOCKMAN fourth-up. After taking the WFA route first and second-up, he sustained a wide and early run in the Kingston Town Stakes, which should top him off nicely. His class is underrated, as we saw in the Tancred Stakes over autumn, while any more rain brings him further into it.

An in-form stayer with a turn-of-foot, that's prepared by Chris Waller, it's not hard to see why 7. Durston is an outright fav. Is weighted to win and has more brilliance than his rivals, with the main query being a testing track.

15. Hameron is the pick of the knockouts ($13.00 @ bet365), a one-paced, but strong stayer, who will relish stepping to 2400m. If it's a slog, then he's right in this with 51kg.

2. Le Don De Vie is nearly top weight, but still drops 4kg off his last effort. Won the Caloundra Cup two back on a Heavy 10.

Race 10 - 5:25PM Cleanaway Handicap Tips (1200m)

Selections: 11,10,3,12.

To the eye, 11. BACCHANALIA was a little disappointing on return, but there were reasons. Along with having no prior first-up form, this Godolphin four-year-old has only finished in the top three once from seven attempts on good ground, whereas his soft and heavy track stats are (also won two of three second-up attempts). Gets conditions to suit this time and J-Mac sticks from a gun draw.

Joe Pride has a knack at getting the most out these tried horses, with 10. Zoushack an ex-Melbourne midweek competitor, who has improved in Sydney. Can settle forward or back and was strong late via his Sept 17 return.

Returning as a gelding, 3. Remarque brought up win number two. Failed in his one heavy track run, although was underwhelming (on all surfaces) that season.

12. Chassis was stakes-placed first-up in autumn and is well in with 54kg at benchmark level given some of that form.
