Randwick-Kensington R3 James Squire (Bm68) 1300m


#3 Need Some Luck - $3.30

#1 Franz Josef - $3.70

#7 Captain Furai - $7.50

#5 Vanquished - $9.50

BEST BET - #3 - Need Some Luck

He's making a comeback after saluting at Warwick Farm first-up last time, so he's definitely got some potential. Plus, he's untested in the wet, which could work in his favour.

THE DANGER - #1 - Franz Josef

This undefeated galloper is coming back fresh after a win at Randwick first-up last time, so he's definitely got some momentum behind him. With Nash Rawiller on board for the first time and a solid record first-up, Franz Josef could definitely give Need Some Luck a run for his money.

VALUE BET - #7 - Captain Furai

He rode confidently and got the job done at Newcastle on debut, showing he's got some real talent. Plus, with James Mcdonald in the saddle and trained by Chris Waller, Captain Furai could have a real shot at making an impact in this race.

Randwick-Kensington R6 Hitotsu @ Arrowfield (Bm64) 1800m


#4 Cable Express - $5.50

#3 Jacob's Time - $4.60

#11 She's Got Veuve - $6.00

#7 Frankly Elegant - $5.00

BEST BET - #4 - Cable Express
Although he made the running, he couldn't quite hold off the challengers at Wagga last time. But don't count him out just yet. With Danny Beasley on board, who's had three career starts with Cable Express and hasn't finished outside the top three yet.

THE DANGER - #3 - Jacob's Time

He's coming off a bit of a wet run at Randwick last time, but with a bit of rest, he could bounce back nicely. Keep an eye on him, especially considering his expected settling position is pace.

VALUE BET - #11 - She's Got Veuve

She may have settled handy and battled on to fill the minors last time out, but she's got some real potential here. Plus, she's shown she can handle heavy conditions, finishing second in two career starts.

Randwick-Kensington R8 Hyland Race Colours (Bm78) 1400m


#8 Space Age - $5.50

#13 Franz Josef - $3.70

#4 Rhythm Of Love - $6.00

#5 Bunker Hut - $8.00

BEST BET - #8 - Space Age

It's his debut in Australia after being with John Joseph Murphy, so he's a bit of a wild card here. But hey, he's got a decent first-up record with a second and a third from two career starts. 

THE DANGER - #13 - Franz Josef

Now, onto the danger, Franz Josef. This unbeaten gelding is making a comeback and has a winning streak under his belt. He kicked off last season with a win at Randwick first-up, so we can expect him to be right up there from a decent draw. 

VALUE BET - #4 - Rhythm Of Love

And for our value bet, it's Rhythm Of Love. This horse put in a solid effort at Rosehill last time out, showing some real potential. Plus, with Nash Rawiller in the saddle, who's already scored a win with Rhythm Of Love back in February at Canterbury, there's some real confidence behind this pick.

Jockey Of The Day – Tom Sherry

Tommy Sherry has four runners at Randwick on Wednesday that I'm keen to watch. In Race 1, you have Megastar Heart as the current favourite and should go close. Star Impact in Race 5 is another one to watch, especially with an excellent record in heavy conditions.

R1 - Megastar Heart - $2.9
R2 - Vivezza - $14
R5 - Star Impact - $7
R8 - Tympanist - $23

Multi Tips For Randwick

On a day filled with fierce competition and horses finely tuned for the races, it's wise to approach multi betting with caution. I've leaned towards horses with favourable barriers, decent weights and in-form jockeys. These factors can often make a real difference in such tightly contested races. Check out my multi of the day below for an exciting bet to follow throughout race day!

Betting Sites Bonuses and Promotions

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!
