Saturday Racing Tips - Randwick Racecourse 31/12/22

Randwick racing continues into the last day of the year and with a packed 10 race card. It should be a good, fun day of racing to close out the year. The weather is expected to be fair with some rain and the track is rated to be a soft (5) and could be downgraded as the day goes on. I have outlined my best, next best and roughie of the day as well as a multi and quaddie to follow for the day.

OnlyRacing wishes everyone a Happy New Year to all and let’s have a big day of racing to send us into the new year!

Randwick Race 3 – BM 72 HCP (1300m)

#2 - Garza Blanca - $1.80 - (BEST BET)
#3 - Daytona  - $10.00
#5 - Operative - $13.00
#6 - O'tycoon - $14.00

BEST BET - #2 - Garza Blanca - (BEST BET)
Garza Blanca likes the track in these conditions and I think that will be the key here, has shown plenty of talent. Particularly, in his last 2 runs when winning 2 back and placing in his latest outting. He finds a beatable field again and should be fit. I think he wins this.

VALUE BET - #6 - O'tycoon
I think O’tycoon and dropping back 100m in distance is a good combo, just ran out of steam last time out but if he finds the front he could hold these all at bay. Have seen a couple smart punters backing him already so I definitely think at the least is over the odds.
THE DANGER - #3 - Daytona 
Daytona is another who i think the softer ground really suits, picked up a nice, smart win at Warwick before being sent to the paddock for 7 weeks then resumed at Cantebrury when getting bumped around in traffic and still chased hard but never got clear. He can win this.

Randwick Race 4 – BM78 HCP (1300m)

#8 - Po Kare Kare - $4.50 - (NEXT BEST)
#2 -Pretty Wild - $3.60
#1 - Rupertaar - $5.50
#4 - Miss Fox - $12.00

BEST BET - #8 - Po Kare Kare - (NEXT BEST)
The Bryce Heys mare resumes here and hasn’t raced since the end of July when on a heavy track still beaten not by that much. She has a very good first up record and has trialled nicely for this. I think she will be sitting off the speed and running over them late.

VALUE BET - #1 - Rupertaar
Rupertaar just ran out of steam last time out but showed talent and was impressive in defeat, finishing 3rd. The Bjorn Baker mare is hard fit now, back to mares grade and I think she can run a cheeky race into the placings.

THE DANGER - #2 - Pretty Wild
Pretty Wild was a bit one paced when resuming at Kembla but had a soft trial prior and showed some talent there. I think she appeals here in the small field and thin race. Fitness will help her run style a lot

Randwick Race 6 – BM100 HCP (1600m)

#3 - Steely - $2.80
#5 - Bullfinch - $7.00
#2 - Purple Sector - $7.00 - (ROUGHIE OF THE DAY)
#1 - Jojo Was A Man - $4.20

BEST BET - #3 - Steely
Steely will be hard to beat, the 2000m was too long but now comes back to the mile after a run at the mile a couple weeks ago when attempting to lead, sitting box seat and being run over late in the end. I think that with a couple in front of him he will run better and be hard to contend with late.

VALUE BET - #2 - Purple Sector - (ROUGHIE OF THE DAY)
Purple Sector looks rock hard fit and while the form might not be much on paper, he steps up in trip now, meets softer competition than he has dealt with prior when managing 5 placings this prep and with Nash on if he can cross and find a good spot he could take this out.

THE DANGER - #5 - Bullfinch 
Bullfinch comes into this three weeks between runs after racing at this track and distance but he wasn’t suited by the sit and sprint. However, what he showed late when powering to the line is the signs of a progressive horse and with a much softer run he looks like he should be in the finish.

Jockey Of The Day – Tyler Schiller

Tyler Schiller gets a nice booking of rides and has been very in form at Randwick. I like the apprentice jockey but what I like more is how much the big stables trust him, he returns to a few previous rides as well and I like his odds in the TAB jockey challenge.

R2 - #12 - Blood River - $14.00
R3 - #9 - Tango Fame - $26.00
R4 - #1 - Rupertaar - $6.60

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 Saturday'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!
