Randwick Race 7 – THE STAR 150TH EPSOM (1600 METRES)

To be honest the number of entries are very disappointing for such a huge race. As is the weight scaling with just 2 kgs covering the field. Nonetheless, we do get some good horses lining up which means there are probably more we could of included.

WINX– The last 2 wins from this horse have been unbelievable. Absolutely no right to win on the turn and then wooooshka. Forget barrier 13 because she will go back anyway. Up to 1600m I just can’t ignore her to be honest and she will be coming home like a train which is solid for this promotion. Currently $3.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here

RUDY – Has likely been set for this and gets in with a solid weight claim. Loved the distance winning 3 from 5, and has been solid enough of late to put him right in with a strong chance. Barrier 9 is and watch for any rain (although looks unlikely). If it becomes a wet track, he is a duck. Could hold on for a nice Currently $10.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here

SADLER’S LAKE – In super form and love the distance winning 2 of 3 with a placing. Barrier 3 gives him a very soft run in transit and he could well skip away again and prove hard to catch. Could hold on for a nice Currently $8.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here

LUCIA VALENTINA– Drawn perfectly here and something tells me she is ready for a huge run. Finished off strongly behind some very tough horses last start and providing she gets a clear run in the straight could be a big chance. Could hold on for a nice Currently $8.50 Fixed >> Place your bet here

SON’S OF JOHN– This is the unknown horse here. He has shown super ability but its hard to say how much more he can improve. On exposed form he should be a huge chance after a head bob behind Winx. Is drawn the car park and can’t afford to stay wide. With luck he slots in and then who knows at big odds. Could hold on for a nice Currently $16.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here



There is some real up-and-coming class in this race. Most could win at their best but there are a few that look to have the edge.

SPEAK FONDLY– Absolutely flying at this stage and drawn perfectly. Untried at the distance but a 2nd being the impressive Exosphere last start at 1400m suggests she will run it out. Either way she will go near the front and look a big chance at some stage in the straight. Currently $2.60 Fixed >> Place your bet here

PEARLS – Super impressive filly who stormed over the top of them from 8th on the turn last start. The step up looks to be ideal at this stage.  Currently $6.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here

HONESTA– One the few proven at the mile winning 2 of 3 starts plus a placing. Was very strong last start coming home just behind Pearls from 10th on the bend. Drawn 1 for a very cushy run in transit and at these odds seems like incredibly value. Currently $8.50 Fixed >> Place your bet here.



Tough race to pick a winner here to be honest. A few horses stand out in class but just aren’t showing enough to be confident. Definitely looks like some value may pop up.

MAGIC HURRICANE– Super consistent horse who is proven at the distance. Is being set for this and has drawn well in 1. Will be in this up to his eyeballs. Currently $4.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here

ORBEC– International horse who is now finding his straps. three solid runs in a row and drawn barrier 4 put him right in this. Proven at the distance winning 2 of 3 makes him look a great chance. Odds seem a little misplaced.  Currently $11.00 Fixed >> Place your bet here
