Randwick-Kensington Tips August 18


Randwick-Kensington Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Super Effort

This gelding joined the Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou stable this campaign and would've made it interesting had he drawn a gate on July 17, but irrespective, it was a great second-up effort, coming from a brilliant first-up win at Newcastle.

Super Effort only got off heels at the 100m in the last attempt before storming home late behind Fastconi, a fit and in-form winner that had all the favours, while here from gate six under Jay Ford, he can camp just off the speed before chiming in late.

There may have been a small setback with given he was scheduled to run a few Saturday's back, however, both victories have come on the fresh side and they are staying a similar distance range, so suspect he's back on track for what looks a very winnable race.


Randwick-Kensington Roughie - Race 5 No. 7 Unamerican

Still quite a lightly raced stayer is this five-year-old who returned with a nice effort at Warwick Farm and following a flatter second-up performance, was back on target with a fourth on July 17 at Randwick where he stepped up to the 1800m.

Unamerican finds himself back to that same journey after a Brisbane effort over the 2212m, a brutally run affair where he stuck for third but was no match for London Banker, who stepped up in grade seven days and bolted in again, so the recent form is stacking up well.

While he's still very competitive, I just think this gelding gets that little bit outclassed in Saturday Benchmark 78 events, although now hard fit and with all three of his wins coming at similar trip (1900m), is better placed back to the midweeks at 72 level.


Randwick-Kensington Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 9 Bob's Your Uncle

Despite having a heavy track victory to his name, that can be attributed more to saluting in what was a quite an ordinary Maiden last year at the Provincials, rather than necessarily lapping up the wet conditions which his subsequent efforts suggest.

A third-up winner in this grade last November at Canterbury, Bob's Your Uncle has only seen a good surface twice since that victory which have brought about easily his two best performances in that time frame, including a great fresh run back in April.

There was good money for the son of Uncle Mo here on July 28 and while he couldn't quite match subsequent Saturday winner Matowatakpe, he's put more than three lengths on third, who was another recent winner and I'm not convinced this is any harder.


Randwick-Kensington Value Bet - Race 7 No. 8 Miss Dior

Not far off a city win is this mare from the Peter & Paul Snowden camp, an honest sprinter that completed a winning hat-trick at the Provincials to start her second racing campaign late last year and was then tipped out following a flat run at Warwick Farm.

With Turnstyle, Irish Angel and Shaik engaged in that line up, it wasn't a bad Fillies & Mares 72 by any means and Miss Dior had defeated that winner second-up that preparation, so she's certainly capable and will keep the mares' allowance for this event.

She was good fresh inn a 78 prior to an unlucky second-up outing (held-up then in inferior ground) and while Jojo Was A Man should be the best horse from this race in time, he'll improve over further and aside from that favourite, there's not much quality in this field.

Super Effort (Race 3) and Bob's Your Uncle (Race 6) wil run as our best bets on the Randwick-Kensington meeting this Wednesday.

Unamerican makes some appeal at a big price in Race 5 while in the last, Miss Dior is a good each-way chance.
