Randwick Tips July 13

Race 1 - 11:10AM TAB Handicap Tips (1400m)

Best: 1. Wanaruah. I'm always wary of all-the-way Canterbury winners when they step up to Saturday metro company, however, Wanaruah is a deserving fav here.

The Waterhouse & Bott-trained colt landed big bets in that dominant debut performance and he's still far from the finished product, as the youngster was a little green.

He ran very good time for the June 19 program, going more than five lengths faster overall than the other two 1250m maidens and he also clearly bettered the BM72 on that program.
Value: 4. Kenmare Bay. The depth to this two-year-old event is questionable outside of the few market elects and the sole first starter in the field is Kenmare Bay.

He's bred to get over a trip, so 1400m is a good starting point for the son of New Bay and connections will be keen to have a look at him at the back-end of the season.

The time was nothing flash, however, he did respond to riding when taking out a June 3 trial at Hawkesbury before completing a quieter piece of work over 1050m at Randwick.

Race 2 - 11:45AM ASX Maurice Farhart Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 5. Detendu. This is an open race and even those there's only nine acceptances, the tempo looks genuine enough with Mafia and Kadall looking to cross from out wide.

Detendu has tactical speed and a low draw, which could see him get the suck run under Rachel King from barrier two, with this gelding carrying 2.5kg less third-up.

He was heavily supported second-up and that market push proved spot on, as the David Pfieffer-trained galloper won comfortably and the runner-up (Gram) has ability.

Value: 4. Broadway Bouncer. He was disappointing when contesting a metro BM72 over the Scone Carnival and as a result, Broadway Bouncer has been freshened-up.

The son of Kermadec was ticking over very nicely before that, with three seconds and a win his prior four starts, which includes a narrow miss in a Midway here.

He appeared to be travelling in a tick-over trial at Wyong on June 19 and with a strong speed to suit the three-year-old, he can chime in late if they're making ground.

Race 3 - 12:20PM TAB Highway Plate Tips (1600m)

Best: 1. Cranky Harry. Matthew Dunn and Nash Rawiller are always dangerous in these races, and this gelding comes south after narrowly going down at Doomben when aiming for back-to-back wins.

He was heavily backed in that metro assignment and that followed a stylish second-up win over Johnny Da Wolf, who had bolted in the start prior after contesting a hot maiden.

They opted against a Rosehill Highway a fortnight ago due to a horror draw, with Cranky Harry going back to trials instead and he worked well in that July heat at Doomben.

Value: 13. Commando Jack. He was competitive in a few metro maidens when prepared by Anthony Cummings and he also placed twice at the provincials for his first trainer.

Commando Jack is now under the care of David Smith and aside from a third-up flop at Dubbo when in the market, the four-year-old has been competitive for the new yard.

Hewes freshened-up after that May 25 failure before returning with a third on July 7 and the winner of that race (Medinah) beat Elson Boy before he won six in a row.

Race 4 - 12:55PM Midway Handicap Tips (1600m)

Best: 9. Charming Legend. Bon Ho and Les Bridge have had a few smart horses over the journey and while it was only a Super Maiden, it was hard not to be impressed with the debut victory.

He got stronger as that 1400m Kensington contest wore on and stepping to a mile is ideal here after recording the fastest 400m and 200m of the entire June 12 meeting.

I wouldn't look too much into the space between runs, as Charming Legend had accepted for the June 22 card that was abandoned and going to a mile, he wouldn't have missed much work.
Value: 5. Star Impact. Especially as she had no prior first-up wins to her name, the May 15 return was a pass mark and Star Impact was then six weeks between runs second-up.

She did find the fast lane and had the saloon via that June 22 outing, although the mare was still 1250m to 1600m and the five-year-old put a space on some in-form runners.

Star Impact finished fourth over this track/trip via her last Midway on March 9, where she was specked at a price and she's been consistent since joining the Mark Minervini stable.

Race 5 - 1:30PM James Squire Handicap Tips (1800m)

Best: 2. Don Diego De Vega. There's a big opinion of Bear On The Loose, a Waterhouse & Bott-trained import who landed a big betting move when saluting on Australian debut.

While he isn't as furnished as Bear On The Loose, Don Diego De Vega is every bit as classy and while he had to settle for second behind that rival, his Australian debut was still strong.

I suspect 2000m is probably his right range, so staying at 1800m is fine second-up and in a weaker assignment second-up, the grey can go one better on Saturday.

Value: 5. Rise To It. This Ciaron Maher-trained galloper improved via his second campaign last year, with the gelding winning four of six outings over winter and spring.

That included a winning hat-trick to round out the prep, with the latest victory recorded in this grade and he picked up late when resuming over 1600m on June 5.

He then got back in a muddling affair at Rosehill and while there's a lot of ground to make up on Don Diego De Vega, Rise To It will get more favours third-up from barrier one.

Race 6 - 2:05PM I Love 0% Cocktails Handicap Tips (1400m)

Best: 9. Hide Your Heart. She was in career best form last campaign and quickly worked through the grades in the process, with the mare opening her spring with a hat-trick.

After taking out a BM58 at Scone fresh, Hide Your Heart completed that early treble via a metro BM72 and she remained competitive in her next three outings (all in Saturday BM78's).

Following a return fourth (arguably should've won), the daughter of Sebring was back and chasing a long way out second-up, but the closing splits were still okay and she can improve third-up.

Value: 12. Cross The Rubicon. Ideally, she'd be in something a shade easier (midweek BM72), however, Cross The Rubicon is racing well and she's at peak fitness now.

The six-year-old covered ground in an unlucky fourth first-up before getting home well second-up and when stepping up this class last start, she missed the kick early.

She did recover for a seventh-of-twelve finish via that 1400m Rosehill attempt and now hard-fit with two seven furlong runs completed, she can figure here with even luck.

Race 7 - 2:40PM Elite Sand & Soil Handicap Tips (1600m)

Best: 8. Nails Murphy. His only time finishing out of the top four in Australia was two starts back at Randwick, where the gelding was badly checked at a key stage.

Nails Murphy recovered from that second-up miss to finish fourth-of-twelve over the Rosehill 1500m on June 15 and that performance should top him nicely for this mile tilt.

While he got through a Heavy 9 surface via that last showing, I suspect he'd be more comfortable on ground that's a little firmer and he should get that on Saturday (Soft 7/Heavy 8).

Value: 7. King Of Florida. I'm forgiving the debut flop from this Chris Waller-trained import, who eventually kicked-off his Australian career at Rosehill on June 29.

He raced very fresh, which was hardly surprising first-up with a few aborted attempts and he never settled in the run, hence Rory Hutchings went forward without cover.

The stable have a good opinion of King Of Florida, who carries 3kg less and will strip fitter from his return outing, while from barrier three, they can push on or look for early cover.

Race 8 - 3:20PM Kanebridge Handicap Tips (1400m)

Best: 3. War Eternal. This son of Pierro has improved with every run since a long layoff and with good fitness base, War Eternal saluted for us third-up at a double figure quote.

He was unlucky not to go back-to-back on June 29 at Rosehill, where another wide alley forced him to the rear and he recorded the race-fastest closing splits when finishing third.

War Eternal has drawn out for most of the prep, hence why he's being getting back in his races, however, the gelding now has a low draw and he can settle closer as a result.
Value: 9. Lady Of Luxury. A stablemate to War Eternal, Lady Of Luxury returns to Sydney third-up after contesting the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic at Ipswich.

While she started at 40/1 in that June 22 feature, there's no doubt that the mare should've finished closer, as she was buried away on that tight turning track before getting out late.

She's somewhat of a strange galloper, as the six-year-old tends to run the same race regardless of the grade she's in, although her last two wins have been in stronger company.

Race 9 - 4:00PM Toyota Forklifts Handicap Tips (1800m)

Best: 9. Bear On The Loose. The stable mail is that Bear On The Loose is a cups contender for the Waterhouse & Bott yard, albeit Gai talks up all of her horses.

Punters didn't miss the lightly raced import via his Australian debut victory, where he found again after being challenged and he carries 1.5kg less here due to a rise in grade.

It's still not a vintage race, even for BM88 standards and if he's to have any chance of measuring up in Melbourne over the spring, then he'd need to be putting this lost away.

Value: 12. Deficit. His major victories have all come in Queensland, however, Deficit has been competitive multiple times in this grade and 1800mn third-up looks ideal.

Unfortunately, another wide draw means he's likely to go back again, but a switch to Randwick will held in that regards (making ground) and he gets through most surfaces.

Without threatening in an on-speed dominated race, his June 15 return was sound and he then recorded good closing splits when remaining at 1500m second-up .

Race 10 - 4:35PM Schweizer Kobras Lawyers Handicap Tips (1000m)

Best: 1. Soami. It's a competitive race to finish the card and you can make a genuine case for most of these, which includes a resuming Soami, who is $20+ in the early markets.

While his back-to-back metro wins last winter came over further (last vs Diamond Diesel - subsequent Listed winner), he's a two-time first-up winner over 1000m and the last of those was on a Soft 7.

The seven-year-old has been under a firm hold in both lead-up trials and with a strong early speed predicted, he's one that can get tow into it late from an outside draw.
Value: 5. Memoria. This Kris Lees-trained mare was perhaps a little lucky to salute fresh last campaign, but she's a tough sprinter who puts herself on the speed.

Memoria was spelled after recording her fifth career victory in April on soft ground and the four-year-old is putting a tidy resume together, which includes a perfect first-up record.

She's probably not far off her ceiling at metro BM78 level, although she gets good relief after a 3kg claim and from gate two, Memoria can take a sit in the first two or three pairs.
