Randwick Tips February 11

Race 1 - 12:20PM Coolmore Pierro Plate Tips (1100m)

Selections: 2,9,12,8.

Currently an equal second market elect for the Golden Slipper, 2. DON CORLEONE is prohibitively short here, but is the obvious on-top selection, showing a slick turn-of-foot in a Jan 21 debut victory and somewhat backing up the spring opinion in that he was the premier two-year-old in the Snowden camp. He'll once again get time to build momentum from a middle gate.

9. Cafe Millenium is one of two first starters in the field, a strong son of Not A Single Doubt who rattled home for a trial win in Oct and the was spelled. He was held together in a recent trial and didn't give much away.

12. Empress Of Wonder was a little disappointing in the Magic Millions, especially off two slick chasing efforts prior to that. Perhaps needs a colder ride?

Godolphin colt 8. Razors was green in his first prep, but he has class and the Jan 30 trial was encouraging. Low draw helps.

Race 2 - 12:55PM TAB Highway Handicap Tips (1800m)

Selections: 3,9,7,1.

The blinkers now come off 3. EPIC RANGER in a bid to settle more and run out the 1800m, while swapping a country hoop for a city jockey should always be respected. A dominant Jan 1 winner over a mile, things then didn't pan out at Rosehill, where he missed the kick and just didn't have that brilliance to dash when needed, but picked up a little late. He's worth another chance.

Back to a Highway off a solid provincial effort, 9. Spitfire is a big price ($23.00 @ Neds). Placed in a few city maidens for Gary Portelli and finally got the breakthrough on stable debut for Matthew Dale. Is hard fit and racing well.

We were with 7. Mr Severino at a big price last start and he was just nabbed by Trooper Knuckle, who will win better races. Strips fitter now third-up.

1. King Of Spades is a Highway regular and has been super consistent in all of them attempts. 1800m a little query.

Race 3 - 1:30PM Midway Handicap Tips (1000m)

Selections: 7,16,1,9.

Through his early trials and some good runs in handy company, 7. HARD TO SAY looked very promising and after mixing his form, the penny may have finally dropped last start, with three-year-old rattling home at the Sunshine Coast for an outstanding victory. With some varying tactics prior and then a few gear changes, they may have him worked out now, i.e. ride him ice cold.

From the in-form Bryce Heys yard is three-year-old colt 16. Another Cognac, who gets weight off key older rivals. Had every chance third-up, but once again in the finish and that followed a Warwick Farm victory.

Respect 1. Depth That Varies in any 1000m dash, especially back to Midway grade off BM78 and BM88 outings. Will need luck in transit from barrier two.

There was spruik for 9. Bartoselli last prep, where he didn't progress, but he has time. Looks forward off his trials.

Race 4 - 2:05PM $1m Inglis Pink Bonus Handicap Tips (1600m)

Selections: 11,4,3,9.

Was super keen on Major Artie, with Frumos the saver and both aqre now scratched. While 11. TAZAREL might need this before he gets over a little more ground, he should get a comfortable lead with Major Artie out. This Snowden lacked a turn-of-foot at 1400m on Aus debut, but wasn't beaten far and carries 4.5kg less for what isn't a strong BM88. Had trialled well.

4. Bold Mac got a 10/10 from J-Mac on a seven day turnaround third-up and given all of his prior four wins were either first, or second-up, he may have already peaked. Is going well, however.

3. Bullfinch has had chances, although is holding his form and did spot weight to the quinella via his last outing. Likely gets back with no speed on, though.

9. King Ratel is racing consistently and the mile might be his right trip. He's up in class now.

Race 5 - 2:40PM Davali Southern Cross Stakes Tips (1200m)

Selections: 5,2,7,10.

After two scratching's. there's currently nine in this Southern Cross Stakes line-up and I could make a case for all of them. At his best, 5. QUANTICO would get the nod, but he's first-up since an injury sustained in last year's Newmarket, which was 11 months ago and while his trials have been fair, they haven't given a lot away. Does go straight to 1200m, so suspect he's had plenty of work.

Although a Golden Eagle campaign didn't pan out for 2. Mr Mozart, he was going well ahead of that feature, where did draw out in a swoopers race. Moved nicely in a Feb 6 trial and he'll likely settle in the first two.

7. Titanium Power is one of few with race fitness in this field and with Tim Clark riding, expect them to take advantage of that and have his rivals chasing here.

10. Espiona is about as reliable as an ashtray on a motorbike, but could also blow these away without surprising.

Quantico - $5.50Randwick Race Fivebet now

Race 6 - 3:20PM Inglis Millennium Tips (1100m)

Selections: 9,14,8,10.

While beaten as a $2 fav on debut, 9. FACILE was brave in that Nursery run. After taking time to muster and lead after what wasn't a perfect jump, she wasn't given peace by The Little Pumper, who Facile held a big margin on. Given the perfect run that Saltaire had, that winner was entitled to put a bigger space on her. Tough race, but has experience now and is open to improvement.

14. Kundalini was specked at a price on debut, where Don Corleone got the better of her and we'll have a guide to that form after the opener. Like Facile, she has tactical speed and a low draw, so ticks a few boxes.

Coolmore filly and Widden Stakes winner 8. Learning To Fly may prove too classy, but sub $3 in a big two-year-old field and a horror draw? Not for me.

10, Lazzago showed a slick turn-of-foot to win on debut and a middle draw off a good speed looks suitable.

Race 7 - 4:00PM TAB Light Fingers Stakes Tips (1200m)

Selections: 11,1,2,4.

Clearly, In Secret is the one to beat, but odds-on first-up and with bigger fish to fry, I'm going with 11. SUNSHINE IN PARIS at the price, a very talented filly that's still untapped and arguably should be unbeaten. At start three in a first racing prep, putting older rivals to the sword at metro level is no easy feat and she brings residual fitness from that, along with a superb tick-over trial.

Coolmore Stud Stakes winner 1. In Secret could be in the top handful of sprinters in the country, so is a clear standout resuming against fillies at set weights. Smart filly...it's just the price I'm opposing fresh.

Track bias stopped 2. Fireburn winning a triple crown and although she didn't progress in spring, she was never disgraced. Very wary here of a good trial.

Thousand Guineas winner 4. Madame Pommery will improve over further, although looks forward enough off her trial.

Race 8 - 4:40PM TAB Apollo Stakes Tips (1400m)

Selections: 1,10,11,8.

With two trials, including a strong piece of work over 1000m on Jan 27, 1. ANAMOE arrives to this return off a similar lead-up to spring, where he took out the Winx Stakes first-up and this event is run under the same conditions. The star Godolphin four-year-old will only have a short autumn prep before a Royal Ascot tilt mid-year and at WFA level, he's expected to be too classy fresh.

10. Icebath waited until the entire country had sacked her before culminating her spring with a Group 1 win at $11. She has trialled better than her spring lead-up's and could easily finish in the top three/four fresh.

Felt the CF Orr was a better option for 11. Fangirl, but is clearly right in this if Anamoe doesn't show up. Arguably should've won the Golden Eagle.

Waller stayer 8. Surefire won well fresh at 1400m in Aug, albeit in much weaker company. He's one for the exotics.

Anamoe - $2.06Randwick Race Eightbet now

Race 9 - 5:20PM Robrick Lodge Triscay Stakes Tips (1200m)

Selections: 1,7,9,2.

While she hasn't won since her early three-year-old days, 1. SWATS THAT has been in the deep end almost the entire time against the absolute elite, with this her first 1200m attempt back against her own sex. Now in her second prep for Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, who turned Bella Nipotina from bridesmaid to Group 1 winner, the five-year-old arrives off a very impressive trial Jan 24 trial win.

7. Jump The Broom went off the boil after winning her first four, before a solid showing in Oct and was then spelled. They can be more positive from a low draw and this looks a black-type target from Team Hawkes.

9. More Prophets has a booming turn-of-foot when conditions allow and with two trials (won her latest) she can run a race fresh at bolters odds ($31.00 @ Ladbrokes).

While respecting 2. Norwegian Bliss, this is a challenge for the fav, up against handy sprinters with speed to her inside.

Race 10 - 5:55PM Wild Oaks Sprint Tips (1300m)

Selections: 4,3,13,6.

A Golden Eagle came too soon for 4. WATERFORD in spring, although he had no luck in the Silver Eagle and bounced off that with a BM78 triumph before a spell. Spelled after a big maiden win in March, Waller doesn't go to a BM78 first-up with a lightly raced 65-rater unless there's a very big opinion, and he justified that. I like him for the Doncaster Mile and class might get him home here.

Unbeaten from three first-up attempts is 3. Kingsheir, who is a decent price ($23.50 @ BoomBet). He'll make a nice recruit for the Kim Waugh yard if he can stay sound and if the middle/outside lanes are in play, then so is this big bloke.

While 13. Think About It is a prep or away from fully furnishing, he'll make a stakes class galloper in time. This is easily his biggest challenge to date.

Back in grade third-up, the very honest 6. Pizarro is a winning hope, but not sure he has the ceiling of the above three.
