Saturday Racing Tips - Randwick Racecourse 24/12/22

Christmas Eve racing kicks off at Randwick Racecouse this week and it’s a great 10 race card with some solid horses to boot us into the new year. The track is rated a soft 5 and I think there is potential for it to be upgraded to a Good 4 depending on how much it dries out on Friday.

Conditions other than that are expected to be good with little wind and clear skies. Lets jump into it, I will be covering my best and next best bets of the day, a roughie, quaddie and multi.

I’m looking forward to closing out the year in a big way, merry christmas and happy holidays to you all.

Randwick Race 2 – BM78 HCP (1800m)

#7 - Touristic - $5.00 - (NEXT BEST)
#3 Logan Street Lion -$4.00
#5 - Deficit - $4.80
#2 - Irish Legend - $7.00

BEST BET - #7 - Touristic - (NEXT BEST)
Touristic made his Aus debut a couple weeks ago at rosehill but has to be forgiven for that as he succumbed to his map from the bad draw but still ran decently behind Danish Prince. His trial was absolutely outstanding and he comes from a flying stable. I think he is a genuine horse due to his overseas form and I am happy to give him another shot here

VALUE BET - #5 - Deficit 
Deficit is on a quick back up here and the stable obviously has good reason for it. He looks suited at this distance and maps to sit just off the speed. I think if Melham can provide a good ride for him he should be winding up late and storming home in the last 200m
THE DANGER - #3 Logan Street Lion 
Logan Street Lion is an honest horse who I have been following this prep. I was on him last start at Eagle Farm over the 1600m but he was just plain in defeat being given every chance in that run. 1800m is questionable but he gets Jmac on again and draws barrier one. 

Randwick Race 4 – CLASS 3 HCP (1100m)

#2 - Salire - $2.90 - (BEST BET)
#3 - Penthouse - $5.50
#15 - A Guinea - $8.50 
#16 - Supido Beauty - $5.50

BEST BET - #2 - Salire - (BEST BET) 
Crockett knocked off the entire highway trifecta last week, this week hes got just Salire running but he has clearly selected Salire for a reason. He’s been in outstanding form, winning here on Cup day and then finished in great time third to Penthouse. I see no reason why Salire can’t take this out in weaker company.

VALUE BET - #15 - A Guinea 
A guinea resumes here today. His Winter prep was great, winning last time at Tamworth. What reads better however is his close 2nd to the Poacher who really does appear to be a Saturday horse. He’s been quietly trialled once for this but it may be enough as I’m sure they’ve done good work in the paddock with him

THE DANGER - #3 - Penthouse 
Penthouse got the better of Salire last time out. He held them all at bay over the highway after leading them a fortnight ago. He has run well previously at this distance but hasn’t pick up a win yet over the 1100m. The track shouldn’t trouble him at all and I think it’s just a matter if he can settle where he wants (up top) and hold them off again.

Randwick Race 8 – BM78 HCP (1200m)

#14 - Sunshine In Paris - $2.50 
#4 - Pretty Wild - $6.00
#13 - Anagain - $19.00 - (ROUGHIE OF THE DAY)
#4 - Pretty Wild - $6.00

BEST BET - #14 - Sunshine In Paris 
Sunshine in Paris looks very hard to beat in this field. Her two starts this preparation have been great both in running and in time. Last time out at Doomben she showed her class, weaving through winners, running hard and fast throughout this navigation and just going down late.

She now is going up against the older horses at 1200m in BM78 grade and as such gets in with 52kg, Has Zac Lloyd on board which takes off another 2kg and they’ll be looking to settle back in the field and hurting them late straight through the middle of the track.

VALUE BET - #13 - Anagain - (ROUGHIE OF THE DAY)
Anagain comes off the back of her first run for the Pride stable two weeks ago over 1100m and did a great job at the good odds when running totally against the race shape, still beaten honestly by 3.5L. This stable knows what they are doing in sydney and she comes into this fitter and smarter with a better draw. She drops in grade as well and steps up in distance. If she can produce her best she will take this out at big odds.

THE DANGER - #4 - Pretty Wild 
Pretty Wild races for the ever prominent Waller stable and comes from just the one trial at Kembla when looking a bit one paced. However, when pushed a bit she picked up hard late and just got beaten by a smart type. Interested to see what she produces on race day

Exotic Tips For Sunshine Coast

I think that the early quaddie at Randwick seems a lot more achievable than the later one. Generally the highway would be a massive pain but one of my top selections is running in it and as such I think we have a good shot at hitting it. Follow my early quaddie below for a chance to grab a bit of value and also spread our risk a bit from the straight betting.

Our experts have curated a bet type information page which delves into all the different types of exotics betting, check it out for clarification on the different types of exotics betting or just to brush up on your knowledge.

Randwick Early Quaddie (Races R3-6)

R3 - 2, 7, 8
R4 - 2, 3, 15
R5 - 3, 6, 9, 10
R6 - 1, 4, 5, 9

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 Friday’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!
