Randwick Saturday race tips and full rundown



3. Enchanted Heart is settling in well at 1100m on a heavy track after contesting Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara four weeks ago at Eagle Farm. It was also on the right track. The rising six-year-old finished second to last and received a chance of around $101, but was only beaten by seven lengths by Startantes and Snapdancer, which reads well for that in the context of this that its main dangers offer with regard to the recent form. . 5. Single Easyfor example, picks up a last third of departure in the company of BM78. 3. Enchanted Heart can drift in and out of form and it’s been over a year since his last win, so it’s not a safe bet. But she’s preparing to do her best, and that’s good enough to win.
How to play it: Enchanted Heart to win.


I don’t know what suddenly clicked 6. Marakopa but I have to trust that he will continue to maintain his career-best form. He was refreshed for four weeks after his last run second to Shameless Miss in the Stayers Cup at Randwick at 2600m. His only previous run at Randwick was a six-length run on that same trip, leaving Bonny Ezra and 1. Our candidate in its wake. Squeezed between those two races was a fifth of the two mile Brisbane Cup at Group 2 level. This gives him a formidable base for a 2400m event where endurance and track handling ability are paramount. 7. Yggdrasil was running off his mark on the last start at Rosehill, but handled the rough and tough conditions better to hold on 3. Ocean Flash.
How to play it: Marakopa in each direction.

RACE 6 – 2:10 PM: TPG HANDICAP (1500m)

3. Kalino still traveled as the winner at Randwick’s last start, clearing the mile for the first time. It was four weeks ago now, but it was heartening to see the rising four-year-old deliver on the promise he always teased. He was beaten well first on a heavy track but was hesitant to use it as too much of a guide. He then held on in a race that produced six subsequent winners when he was fifth behind Jojo Was A Man. A heavy 10 presents a new challenge for Pierro’s son but, if Chris Waller is happy to lead him, that’s enough to be confident of his chances. 1. By Inaway should have no trouble getting through anything Randwick throws. The filly chased Cross Talk last start on heavy ground over 1400m.
How to play it: Victory of Kalino.


2. Waihaha Falls returned in a shimmering form. The lightly raced four-year-old gave his rivals an early touch-up at Randwick before reappearing on the same track and trip four weeks later, where he won by an even bigger margin. His combined winning margin is just under eight lengths. The son of Sacred Falls lifts 4kg from this but is entitled to be a favorite at $1.50. It’s now two-for-two on heavy trails too, and clearly takes after its old, mud-loving self. If he wins again by a similar margin here, trainer John O’Shea is entitled to start looking for better runs with the Spring Carnival fast approaching. 3. Titanium Power took the lead two weeks ago and boxed bravely with 62.5kg to run far behind Cross Talk. Gets some weight relief and should find the front unchallenged.
How to play it: Waihaha Falls Victory.


12. Jojo was a man steal this preparation. He’s won three out of five and is coming off a narrow loss to Taksu in the last listed Winter Stakes start. The extra travel is perfect now and we know the heavy track will be no excuse. The other big factor in his favor, aside from his physical condition, prowess and form on the wet track, is the lack of race speed on paper. This is the icing on the cake. Imagine regular driver Reece Jones looking to dominate the race. If he’s not leading, he probably sits outside the leader. 14. Vivid Fox seems to be the other big beneficiary of the lack of speed. The mare was no match for the final start from Waihaha Falls, but no shame in that. What do we do with classy stable mates 1. Golden Journey and 2. Mugatoo?
How to play it: Jojo was a man to be won.


1. Conscript built a commanding record of 15:6-2-3 and added to that win tally in Randwick’s last start over 1100m, leading all the way. He is a sprinter who has just gradually raised the bar with each preparation after his first two victories in the company of the country. He carries only half a kilo more than the last start in this same grade, like the step at 1200m and he is two out of two on heavy slopes. Apart from 6. Farettithere doesn’t seem to be many other gears engaged, so it may be rolling in another control position. 8. Mount Ditto seems to like heavy trails now that he has a good fitness base. That ability to ride through the conditions will see him race well again.
How to play it: Drafted to win.



Hard to miss the return of 9. Sunrise Ruby at Randwick two weeks ago. It looks like the obvious form reference for this race. The Mitch Beer-trained mare balanced in the second half of the field but attacked the line to run into second position 4. Dame Brook. Output at 1200m second on another heavy track, it can turn the tide. Sunrise Ruby is 5:3-2-0 on heavy runs, her four career wins have come on this trip, and she’s unbeaten so far on a final Kosciuszko build. 8. Marquise finished eighth in that race, but that doesn’t do the race justice. The former Kiwi fired early and Jay Ford brought her back to second-to-last and found herself like a wall of horses down the straight.
How to play it: Sunrise Ruby to be won.
