Randwick Kensington Racing Tips For March 18 2020

Midweek Sydney racing will be run on the Kensington circuit at Royal Randwick this Wednesday where fine conditions are expected on the day.

The rail is in the true position and the track is currently in the Soft 7 range.

Randwick Kensington Best Bet

Race 1 No. 11 Fayerra

This filly gets her chance to breakthrough coming all the way back to a midweek maiden after two honest attempts at group two level.

By Valentina and out of a daughter to an AJC Oaks winner in Rose Archway, she's ultimately just found them too sharp at that level over 1100m and 1200m respectively but the step up to seven furlongs should be ideal.

Last start, she was back in a slowly run Reisling Stakes but certainly wasn't disgraced for fourth behind See You Soon and Dame Giselle, who are two leading chances in the Golden Slipper.

The blinkers have now been applied to Fayerra should position up handier at this level with that gear change and get every chance as the best bet at Randwick Kensington.

Randwick Kensington Next Best Bet

Race 4 No. 6 Zebrowski

Team Hawkes prepares this son of Savabeel who returned with the ultimate gear change to break the maiden at Newcastle on March 6.

It was a better effort than the tradesman-like performance suggested where he was pulling comfortably away from Patrina late who won at Haweksbury on Tuesday.

Going straight to 1400m off one trial and carrying 59.5kg to victory on a Soft 7 is no easy feat but drops 3kg for the step up in grade here and the extra 150m is a plus.

The market is warming to both he and All Time Legend who was brilliant in winning his maiden but drawing to follow him wherever he goes, Zebrowski should get a good look at it late.

Randwick Kensington Value Bet

Race 3 No. 1 Blueant

A new addition to the Claire Cunningham stable is this three-year-old who shown enough at the trials to figure straight away.

He comfortably won the fastest 760m heat of the Hawkesbury trials on February 20 on a Soft 7 surface before having another hit-out on the Warwick Farm synthetic on March 5.

It's worth noting Blueant was placed in an open heat on that occasion where he held a half length margin on the city class sprinter Miss Exfactor on the line.

Has displayed early speed on both of them occasions, so looking for Jason Collett to push forward from barrier nine and allow Blueant to give a sight on the speed.
