1/10/19 Randwick Races: Epsom Handicap Nominations & Tips 2019

Kiwi Raider leads the market

Grade Group 1
Track  Randwick
Prizemoney $1,000,000
Class Handicap
2018 winner

Hartnell ($20.00)

 

The Epsom Handicap sits alongside the Doncaster Mile as Sydney's premier Group One mile races.   

Not only does the winner of the Epsom receive the first prize of $500,000, but they also become exempt from ballot for the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes run in Autumn. 

Past winners of the Epsom Handicap include superstars Super Impose (1990, 1991), Desert War (2004,2005) and Winx (2015). 

The early favourite in all-in markets for the 2019 Epsom is the Kiwi raider, Te Akau Shark. This son of Rip Van Winkle comes off a strong second in the Group Two Tramway Stakes and looks ready to peak at his second Australian start.

In a huge push for his chances, gun jockey James McDonald stays on board following their last start placing. 

Other nominations of note include the Godolphin owned Cascadian ($11) and the Team Hayes and Dabernig trained Fifty Stars ($31).

Both gallopers look likely to take their place in the field and are good value at the double figure odds.
