Randwick Roughie - Race 2 No. 6 Bellastar

The Wayne Wilkes stable in Taree bring this lightly-raced mare to town for Saturday's Highway and she's trialled up fairly in readiness for this fresh attempt.

It's hard to knock the consistency of this daughter of Bel Esprit who's no stranger to a winter first-up run in these events with a third placing recorded in 2019 behind Irish Songs (2020 Wagga Town Plate winner) and Lady Demi (very consistent Highway performer).

Her form from her most recent campaign warrants consideration for this race with a feature country win early in that preparation before a close third in a $150,000 Country Championships Qualifier at Taree.

Off what looks a decent enough speed, jockey Rachel King will look to make her move late on Bellastar who's has strong enough form lines for this Highway and has finished in the placing's in three of four first-up runs so far.


Randwick Best Bet - Race 3 No. 7 Kordia

It wasn't an easy July 11 program at Rosehill to make ground in out wide and this gelding ran a race fastest last 600m of 34.91 to run into an eventual fourth as a beaten favourite.

Prior to that he was first-up after more than 12 months off on June 27 and produced straight away to record a soft victory in what was good time for that card.

His 34.06 last 600m was only bettered on the card by his stable mate's in Roheryn who flashed home to win the Benchmark 94 earlier on the program and was unlucky not to back that up in last Saturday's July Sprint when rattling home again.

The step up to 1300 metres looks very favourable for Kordia who plummets in the weights to 52kg (2.5kg frop from last start) and sprinting hard late with that advantage on a wet track, he can bounce back as the best bet at Randwick.


Randwick Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Inanup

This Jarrod Austin-trained gelding always seems to sneak under the radar but with seven wins including a last start second-up victory, he's very well placed to go back-to-back here (won third-up on heavy going last time in).

He safely had the measure of Prime Candidate in that July 11 victory and was soft on the line for a one length victory with that runner-up placing again last week behind Poetic Charmer who was getitng home for third in that same race on July 11.

The 2.5kg penalty from his last win in this same grade has been offset by the 3kg claim of Brock Ryan and with the apprentice engaged, he finds himself dropping half a kilo in a field that is a little weaker if anything.

The last Randwick outing for Inanup resulted in a narrow runner-up to Roheryn (class above anything here) when out bobbed on the line and in that same race, he defeated a subsequent group two winner in Dawn Dawn.


Randwick Value Bet - Race 8 No. 10 Montefilia

The best closing splits from the opening race at Randwick-Kensington on July 18 belonged to this filly from the David Payne camp who was enormous coming from the rear given how biased this circuit was towards those on the speed throughout the entire card.

Along with being the only galloper in this field to break 12 seconds for her last furlong (11.94) she also recorded safely the fastest last 600m of the race (35.49) when sustaining a long and wide run behind the winner who had every favour up front.

Given the resumption at seven furlongs there and off two quiet trials, there's no doubting this daughter of Kermadec will prosper over longer journeys, so the step up in trip here is favourable albeit she's still early in the campaign.

Montefilia now has the services of star hoop Glen Boss and down in the weights with plenty of upside, she can certainly measure up here with any improvement off that strong return performance.


Race 6: 1,2,3,4,5
Race 7: 2,4
Race 8: 1,2,4,10
Race 9: 2,5,6,9

The rise in trip and drop in the weights should see Kordia bounce back in Race 3 with even luck.

Inanup was a soft second-up winner and is weighted to go back-to-back in Race 7.

In Race 8, Montefilia is a good each-way chance off an excellent return run.
