Saturday Racing Tips - Randwick Racecourse 17/12/22

One of the last Saturday’s we will see at Randwick this year to close out an unbelievable year of racing at my home track. Feature race of the day will be the Ranvet Handicap.

We can expect moderate temperatures and all round good weather, with the track being projected as a good 4 and I expect it to remain there, the rail is out +5 metres. 

I have run through the card and along with selecting my best runner of the day, I have a next best bet in another race as well as a multi to follow and a quaddie. Follow me below and let’s have a huge Saturday!

Randwick Race 1 – 2YO HANDICAP – (1100m)

#3 – SNAPBACK (BEST) - $1.70
#2 – Crucible - $7.00
#4 – Achlys - $9.00
#7 – Lazago - $4.20

P & P snowden and Jmac combine for an ever familiar winning combination, the stable has been the absolute go to with the juveniles this season and Snapback maps to get a soft run up top. His most recent trial was winning over the top of the smart Godfather, who won impressively last weekend on debut. 

VALUE BET - #2 – Crucible 
James cummings and Tim clark are another all too threatening combination that presents in this race and the son of exosphere comes into this race. Had a nice trial at Hawkesbury where he ran second and looked to have plenty in his pocket there. If history is anything to go by Cummings will produce a juvenile towards the end of the year to move onto bigger and better races.  

THE DANGER - #7 – Lazago 
The dominant Waller stable puts forward Lazago under Avdulla for this race, he comes off the back of two trials to ready him for this, the most recent of which being a soft win at rosehill where he also looked to have plenty in hand. Whilst I heavily favour Snapback it would be foolish to count out the stable/jockey combo with what looks to be a smart type

Randwick Race 3 – MIDWAY BM 72 HCP (1200m)

#5 – With your blessing (NEXT BEST) – $3.70
#4 – Dalaalaat - $13.00
#2 - Broken Arrows - $5.50
#14 - Mr Rock it - $7.50

BEST BET - #5 – With your blessing (NEXT BEST)  
This horse can do no wrong at the moment, last run is the epitome of forgive - he was bumped at the 800 then held up at the corner and then bumped again at the 300 and still managed to run home for a 3rd placing after winning fresh first up. Looks to improve again, trains at the track and Jmac has had success aboard previously. The step up to 1200 looks good and I will have a decent bet on.

VALUE BET - #4 – Dalaalaat 
Dalaalaat is an interesting horse that loves the dry ground with 75% of his wins coming in the dry. Mcevoy butchered the ride on him a bit two weeks ago but also seemed to want it just a bit shorter. He gets that here along with lots of speed which also suits. If he’s around the mark after the turn I definitely can see him running this lot down.

THE DANGER - #2 - Broken Arrows 
The Pfieffer horse is screaming for a win, after missing a photo finish (that looked like he won) two starts back at Hawkesbury he moved onto rosehill where he was good behind Vreneli. He finds a softer race today and although he has raced a bit greenly recently if Mcevoy can steer him right he can break through.

Randwick Race 7 – BM 78 HCP (1600m)

#6 – Spangler - $7.00
#17 - Naval seal - $7.50
#7 - Akasawa - $10.00
#8 - Camaguay - $7.50

BEST BET - #6 – Spangler 
Spangler is stepping up to metro grade today off the back of a great, smart win at Canterbury where he exploded at the turn to reel them in easily, mind you not an easy track to do so at. The form of that race is reading well with a subsequent winner coming out from there already. He gets out to the mile now and is stripped fitter third up, keen to have something on. 

VALUE BET - #8 - Camaguay 
Camaguay is in seriously good form this prep with 2 wins and a placing in 3 runs, in none of which races was he favoured for those wins. He draws perfectly to get a soft run and evidently reading off of this prep he likes it dry, the step up in grade looks manageable for him. Hes been running cracker times and more so running them in smart ways. I may have to have a small saver on him in an open betting race.

THE DANGER - #17 - Naval seal 
Waller and Clark combine again with Naval seal who comes back to the mile and looks threatening. He resumes from a month break from the races where he was ridden cold at Kembla from the wide gate when unable to do much, forgive that and totally forgive the run before that. However, The run before he looked great fresh and now comes into this hard fit and at his best he wins this.

Exotic Tips For Randwick Racecourse

Not opting for the early quaddie this day out at Randwick as the highway and another race in there are a bit tricky but I think we have a good chance in hitting the quaddie on Saturday, will as always have a couple of my best outsiders in there as there are some good chances in competitive races and it could greatly boost our returns.

I would also recommend checking out our bet type information page if you want any clarifications on quaddie betting and how pool percentages work etc or just to brush up on your knowledge.

In recent times, exotic bets have become way more popular with Aussie punters!

As a brief explanation, exotic bets include many runners into a single bet with dividend odds. It’s a great way to include more runners in races you are unsure about. I suggest giving it a try (it’s also very fun). Or check out our bet information page!
