Randwick-Kensington Tips February 17


VINERY STUD HANDICAP Tips (Race 2)

Randwick-Kensington Best Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Lady Of Luxury

Well-bred first starter Ma And Pa has trialled up well twice, which is the worry but this Bjorn Baker-trained filly has run into two handy one's this preparation and with race fitness/experience, it'll take a good one to knock her off now third-up from a spell.

Following a consistent first preparation, the daughter of Criterion resumed in the Magic Millions Maiden on January 16, finishing off hard for second in a line-up that has produced six subsequent winners including Newsreader, who came back to Sydney and bolted in via a Benchmark 72 last Friday.

While the drop to 1100m worked against her on February 3 behind a slick debut winner in Skedaddle, Lady Of Luxury has rattled off the second fastest last 600m of the program (33.59) as the only rival making in-roads behind the leader and fit now, she gets her chance over 1400m which should suit.

HYLAND RACE COLOURS HANDICAP Tips (Race 3)

Randwick-Kensington Roughie - Race 3 No. 1 Picaro

Off his first two runs this campaign where he was very competitive in a Benchmark 78 (beaten two lengths) before going to a Benchmark 88 and recording the fastest last 600m of that December 19 contest, he'd be arguably the favourite in this Benchmark 72.

After going straight from 1500m-2000m second-up and producing that strong effort behind Gone bye on December 19, Picaro was never interested from the beginning in a leader dominated affair on January 23, a poor performance hence the price on offer here.

Trainer Gary Portelli has now opted to remove the blinkers, a gear change that was effective last time it was implemented and in what is the easiest grade this gelding has faced in some time, he gets some relief after the 2kg claim and I wouldn't be surprised to see him turn it around here.

HEINEKEN HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)

Randwick-Kensington Value Bet - Race 5 No. 9 Mars

Now third-up is this lightly raced son of Sepoy shouldn't be far off a peak performance and off the two efforts this preparation where he's found the line well each time, the step from 1400m to 1550m looks ideal now.

Veteran Randwick trainer Les Bridge always needs to respected at home which includes the Kensington circuit (striking at over 26% here the last 12 months) which is where he produced Mars second-up on February 3 and although was outclassed by a handy Godolphin filly, he was easily the pick of the closers otherwise.

Beating a subsequent city winner in Nyami at start three before a long spell, this four-year-old is capable enough of working through these lower benchmarks and with any improvement on Wednesday, he's right in the mix at an each-way quote. 

TAB HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)

Randwick-Kensington Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 1 Fashchanel

Up 5kg and carrying a 60kg impost second-up is no easy feat, but as the only runner in this field coming out of a Saturday contest, class can just about get her there off a nice return behind April Rain on February 6, a winner that's at least a stakes-class runner going forward.

With a pair of Chris Waller runners engaged in this field that Sydney's leading rider James McDonald has trialled, he elects to jump on Fashchanel on Wednesday, a mare that he was aboard for her most recent hit-out before the return run, so that's a decent lead.

By I Am Invincible and out the dam Elegant Fashion, a Group One winning mare, this four-year-old safely accounted for subsequent city winners Steel Diamond and Amoretti early last campaign before tapering off a little, but the trials and fresh run indicate she's returned well.

Verdict

Lady Of Luxury is well suited out to 1400m in Race 2 from Randwick-Kensington this Wednesday.

Fashchanel ran into a handy April Rain fresh and despite the weight, is a leading chance in the last.

Picaro is worth at big odds in Race 3 and Mars (Race 5) is the pick of the each-way hopes on the card.
