Heavy racing surface for Everest Day at Headquarters
The Randwick track is currently rated a Heavy 8, with 5-10mm of rain forecast to fall until Saturday and showers predicted for race day.
With the rail in the true position, expect the fence to play off as the meeting progresses, with the best going likely to be 7-8 metres off the rail.
This will allow those runners who are positioned mid-field with cover, a clear advantage. Middle to wide barrier draws are ideal with this setup.
Randwick Race 2 #6 Lips n' Lashes- $21.00
This mare from the Brett Cavanough yard looks well suited here, dropping back in class after her last start in mid-week city grade.
The filly by Manhattan Rain looks to have a bright future, with trainer Brent Cavanough suggesting she wouldn't be out of place in the Kosciusko.
Her normal racing pattern is to roll forward, but with plenty of speed drawn underneath her, expect Rachel King to receive the run of the race sitting two pairs off the pace with cover.
From there King will be able to peel off their heels and race home in the best part of the track. The $21 fixed odds looks great value and with even luck, she'll be fighting out the finish.
Randwick Race 5 # 2 Sharpe Hussler - $14.00
This gelding from the Cameron Crocket stable picked up one of the remaining Kosciusko slots after an impressive win two starts back, blowing away a few talented types in a fast run 1100m at Rosehill.
The Kosciusko has been on the radar of Crockett, a talented young trainer, who has set his gelding for the race.
There is an abundance of speed engaged here. The Monstar will be marked urgent form the barriers. While Don't Give a Damn and Fuel, drawn either side of it, will both push forward to contest the lead too.
Jockey Jason Collett will take Sharpe Hussler back to last from the wide 12 barrier, as per his normal racing pattern.
Off the back of the blistering pace expected in this race, Collett will be the widest on turning, with the last crack at them.
With the predicted off-pace bias, Sharpe Hussler will get his chance to fly over the top of them late and looks overs at $14 fixed odds.
