Saturday Racing Tips - Randwick Racecourse 09/12/23

Ingham Day comes to Randwick once again and we have a belter $3.7 million race day ahead of us with the Group two The Ingham being the feature of the day in race 7, a WFA race run over the Mile for a share of $2 million. The feature is supported by a listed race on either side of it and I have run through the big three races and picked out my best bets so follow me below!

Randwick R6 - The Max Brenner Santa Cup (2000m)

#9 - I’mintowin (BEST BET) - $2.70
#6 - Wineglass Bay - $6.00
#2 - Wicklow - $7.00
#3 - King Of The Castle - $6.50

BEST BET - #9 - I’mintowin (BEST BET)
I'm Intowin is a deserving favourite here and I am keen to have something on him here as the race prior might be bigger but it has too many winning chances to get involved in. He came over from New Zealand and now races under Gaibott and has had the two runs for the stable when winning well on debut before last stepping out behind Wineglass Bay a couple weeks ago at Newcastle. Third up, ready for this trip, should be strong here if he sees it out.

THE DANGER - #6 - Wineglass Bay
Wineglass Bay beat I’mintowin last time out and to be honest based off of the way he won last time out there’s no real reason to doubt he runs well here. Schiller gave him the A1 ride there where he got the money inside the dying meters but he has been turned around quicker for this and has upside here. Should be strong.

VALUE BET  - #2 - Wicklow
Wicklow needs to lift to be competitive here but I do think he gets the opportunity to do just that by getting out to this trip now. He last raced in The Gong where he was on the wrong part of the track, being inside at a stage in the day when it was absolutely thrashed so I think third up now and fit he can hit back hard. 

Randwick R7 - The Ingham (1600m)

#2 - Detonator Jack - $4.80
#13 - Hinged (ROUGHIE OF THE DAY) - $21.00
#12 - Dark Destroyer - $101.00
#19 - Lion's Roar - $9.00

BEST BET - #2 - Detonator Jack
Damn this is a tough edition of the Ingham to pick. About half the field are winning chances here but I do think the straight bat option is a horse we had when he last stepped out in a $1 million open race at Kembla where he absolutely flew home from way out wide to beat some sharp horses when finally getting a much deserved win. Right kind of set up for this, can win again.

I really just think rating wise, depth of competition and being well in at the weights combined with the price it makes no sense to count Hinged out of this race. He comes out of the Empire Rose at Flemington where he still managed to run a 106 rated race despite pulling up lame there and now comes back out of the Group 1 races, gets in light with Lloyd aboard. The more I look the more there is to like.

VALUE BET  - #12 - Dark Destroyer
Look I don’t necessarily think Dark Destroyer wins this but the fact I am even giving him a chance speaks volumes relative to the price. He’s a Group 1 runner who came across from NZ and now finds himself with John O’Shea where he debuted in the Hunter and did nothing but also wasn’t asked for anything until the last 200m where he was flying to the line. Progressive horse, huge overs 

Randwick R8 - Racing And Sports Razor Sharp Hcp (1200m)

#10 - With Your Blessing (NEXT BEST) - $3.80
#3 - Insurrection - $3.50
#6 - Waihaha Falls - $9.50
#8 - Fox Fighter - $12.00

BEST BET - #10 - With Your Blessing (NEXT BEST)
Tough race but I really do think that With Your Blessing can roll Insurrection here. He just meets him so much better at the weights and has been doing really good work for John Thompson this time in. He last raced third up at Kembla where he did really appreciate the wet track but still won incredibly sharp there and rates highly off of it. I think he has a bit more upside to come and hard fit now fourth up with Kerrin on and limit weight I think he wins.

THE DANGER - #3 - Insurrection
We had Insurrection the last time he stepped out despite the market not giving him any respect and I was jumping up and down when he led the race and still found plenty when he looked gone to win so well. He doesn’t generally run at this distance but third up, only an extra 100m in trip, should be flying again.

VALUE BET - #8 - Fox Fighter
Fox Fighter has to be one of the leading contenders here for David Payne. He gets turned around quickly after running in the Starlight which was this time last week at Rosehill where he absolutely flew home to finish runner up in a close go. He’s a back up horse and goes out to 1200m now ready for it. A win won’t surprise at all.

Best Promotions for Randwick Racecourse

Promotions are traditionally the primary way for punters to create an edge over the bookies, as they can save your cash when your runner fails to win, in the instance of Unibet they often offer 2nd and 3rd money back in bonus bets for a selection of races on the midweek and Provincial racing days. Coupled with their generous odds I have to put them as the top bookie promotion wise at the moment for Australian racing. 

If you are looking for the best promotions this week for Wednesday's racing I wouldn’t look past Unibet, often they offer odds boosts in addition to the money back promotions. Don’t forget to check your account as well for personal offers. 

Promotions often change so make sure you sign up at to see what promotions are applicable to you and you may even be surprised to find some promotions that weren’t mentioned here!
