Randwick-Kensington Tips March 17


GHAIYYATH NEW TO DARLEY PLATE Tips (Race 2)

Randwick-Kensington Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 8 Sing A Love Song

This two-year-old almost finished next to Home Affairs (Silver Slipper winner) two starts back and prior to that, should've been a little closer to Remarque on January 16, who was then very well fancied to win the Golden Slipper.

Off a little freshen-up, trainer John O'Shea opted for the blinkers on the son of Your Song and he did trial comfortably with them at Randwick on February 16 prior to his attempt in the Group Two Skyline, where although he was well held in a leader dominated affair, he certainly wasn't disgraced in a midfield finish.

A younger sibling to Group Two winning milers Ninth Legion and Tsaritsa, the step up to 1400m for the first time should only suit Sing A Long Song who despite getting quite deep into his first campaign now, is entitled to be favourite here coming all the back to a Midweek Maiden after four competitive efforts against stronger company.

ANZ BLOODSTOCK NEWS PLATE Tips (Race 3)

Randwick-Kensington Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Double Ex

With the filly's allowance and the claim, Zain's Girl is the even money favourite with the blinkers going on now second-up and while she's worth respecting, she has been found wanting late in five starts now which have all been at Provincial level.

Despite Double Ex still being a work in progress, he does look the more talented of the two market elects going forward and off just one trial this preparation ahead of his debut on February 27, which was in good time at Wyong when defeating Oslo (subsequent dual winner), he was backed into favouritism for that Gosford event.

A lack of race experience ultimately cost the three-year-old on that occasion, where he raced greenly throughout but wasn't beaten far into third behind Kalashnikov, who franked that form with a win in the Group Three Black Opal Stakes which secured him a place in Saturday's Golden Slipper.

TAB HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)

Randwick-Kensington Favourite - Race 7 No. 1 Heart Of Puissance

While this isn't a weak Benchmark 72 by any means, now third-up off a long spell and finally finding a wet track which he's supposedly been searching for, this is definitely D-day for this entire who I suspect they will geld if he can't get the job done on Wednesday.

A very talented galloper who won his first two starts before a half-length defeat into third via the 2019 Sandown Guineas, Heart Of Puissance has had a few setbacks since then with a long spell coming after a disappointing effort in the 2020 All-Star Mile, albeit he did pull up lame.

Ciaron Maher & David Eustace have now opted for the blinkers on this four-year-old who was very good fresh behind the talented Regardsmaree and while he was visually plain at Sandown, he did actually pull up lame again, so for every flop in his short career to date, there has been excuses each time.

ROBRICK LODGE HANDICAP (Race 8)

Randwick-Kensington Roughie - Race 8 No. 10 Sweeping Statement

It's a really open race to end the Randwick-Kensington on Wednesday and although this mare was disappointing as her last preparation wore on, both career wins have come over the 1100m on this circuit, which includes a first-up victory in her prior campaign.

Kerrin McEvoy takes back the reins this Wednesday, with the champion hoop being aboard for each of her two wins and off a good speed up front, he'll be looking to again target the faster lanes out wider on this track, which generally do come into play deep on a program when it's wet.

Having her first start on Wednesday for trainer Ron Quinton, Sweeping Statement made good ground in a recent trial and with the blinkers off, expect her to be ridden cold but if the track allows, she's not hopeless here at her best if they're able to run on.
