Randwick Blackbook Runners - Saturday, October 26

Courtesy of a rail-hugging ride from Brenton Avdulla, Kubrick was the inaugural winner of the $1 million dollar Bondi Stakes over a mile from a stable mate in Pancho.

The Randwick track again played superbly, even with rail out to the eight meter position where the winners came from everywhere over the afternoon.

Bondi Stakes Review & Blackbook Runners To Follow

Randwick Race 1 - See You Soon

A daughter of a French stallion Siyouni was this impressive debut winner from the Jean Dubois stable.

She was ridden patiently after a slow getaway where Jean Van Overmeire was able to safely angle off the fence at the 350m and get her momentum building minus any potential traffic issues.

A last 600m of 32.88 and last 200m of 10.90 backs-up a strong finish when she able to lengthen nicely late to reel in Dame Giselle in the last few strides with a good space to third.

This filly is bred to get over more ground and her half brothers in Julian Rock (winner at a 1600m) and Evason (won over 2400m) further supporting that theory.

Likely Target: The $1 million dollar Golden Gift on Saturday, November 9 seems a logical move now.

Randwick Race 4 - Luvaluva

This multiple group winning mare was resuming for her spring campaign where she was runner-up to the fit and in-form Greyworm who was able to eventually dictate proceedings up front.

After tracking the first half a dozen on settling before getting a tow into the event on the back of Rancho Notorius who was brave given the class rise, Luvuluva was doing her best work late under Tim Clark.

This followed up a nice trial leading into this fresh assignment and has good versatility, so the 1600m of The Gong, a $1 million dollar race at Kembla Grange, appears as the right target.

She's building whereas many will be well exposed come then and this was the right performance to now launch off.

Likely Target: The Gong at Kembla Grange on Saturday, November 19.

Randwick Race 8 - Testifier

A Team Hawkes trained four-year-old who was first-up following an unbeaten first racing preparation in Melbourne early in the year.

This was his biggest test to date stepping to benchmark 78 level following some good placement last time in but unfortunately, never got the chance to figure here.

When briefly looking as though the outside run would produce at the top of the straight, a tiring Man Of Peace was able to keep him in that pocket before Testifier was forced to the inside and behind a wall of gallopers.

He was fully untested in the straight and has only been beaten just over two lengths.

Likely Target: He does have a Redzel Stakes nomination for this Saturday and there's also a 1300m BM78 on that card if they choose to back-up.
