12/10/19 Randwick tips and best bets: The Silver Eagle Preview 2019

Battle for the Golden ticket

Distance 1300m
Grade N/A
Track Rating Soft 5
Prizemoney $500,000
Class 4yo Set Weights + Penalties
2018 winner First Running

With many of the quality three-year-old colts now rushed off to stud, the ATC has introduced a rich four-year-old only racing series aimed at keeping them at the track.

The inaugural edition of the Silver Eagle has attracted a quality field and should make for an exciting spectacle. The top three finishers will gain automatic entry into the Golden Eagle for a crack at the $7.5 million pot of gold.

I am with one from the gun Snowden yard who showed enough first up, to indicate he is ready to keep the perfect second-up record intact.


Race Track Randwick Track Traits

The Randwick surface is currently rated a Soft 5, with the rail out 6m from the 1600m mark to the winning post and out 4m for the remainder.

Clouds have covered Sydney for the majority of the week and that looks set to carry into the weekend, with wet conditions predicted for Saturday.

Given the rail position and predicted rain affected surface, I suspect that there will be fast lanes off the rail. This will likely be more pronounced later in the day, when I expect the outside to be favoured.  

As always, a close watch is advised early to determine any fast lanes or bias.  


Market Movers Racing Market Movers

Race favourite The Inevitable has been well supported early, firming from an opening $3.00 quote to now trade at $2.60.

All other runners remain steady.


Horse Racing Key Runners

#2 Sesar $13

Returns from a six week freshen after failing in all three Melbourne Group race attempts.

The expectations have been high, yet he has failed to deliver in recent efforts including the last start 12 of 13 in the Memsie Stakes.  

Happy to risk until he shows more. No. 


#3 The Inevitable $3.00 > $2.60

Could be a potential superstar following a last start demolition job at Moonee Valley in the Chandler Macleod when he won by 4 lengths.

This is a much stronger race, but I believe that he has the talent to step up.

Nash Rawiller goes on board and the draw in gate 4 looks ideal. He is a must include in everything. Yes. 


#4 Military Zone $9.50

Team Snowden runner who was a pass mark first-up at Caulfield, when he kept chasing hard.

He has an unblemished second up (3:3-0-0) and the current $9.50 price looks excellent value to my eye.

Look for him to race midfield with cover and charge home over the top to swamp them all late. Goes on top.  


#5 Behemoth $14

Has been a spruik horse for a while now and did win at Listed level last start at Morphettville.

This is much harder and although the wraps are there, this race looks too hot.

The outside draw in gate 12 from the Randwick 1300m is not ideal and it looks as though a few of these have his measure from a class angle. No.  


#7 Kapajack $14

Trialled well for this, with two strong hit-outs. 

He loves to get well back in the field and hope that they overdo it up front with a warp speed tempo.

He's a proven first up (2:1-1-0) performer and if the speed goes on throughout, there is no doubt he is a knockout chance late. Could surprise.


#9 Buffalo River $9.00

Arrives from Melbourne where he won all three starts last prep, albeit in much weaker races.

He must be showing the stable plenty at home to warrant the trip and target this as their first-up assignment.

Happy to trust the Moroney stable judgment and I am very vary of this runner. Watch betting.


#10 Mizzy $6.50

Loves to lead and dictate and although she's drawn a touch awkward out in gate 9, look for her to still press on for the front.

The mare is rock hard fit now and even if she's forced to race outside the leader, she would have it in her to win.

She just needs the speed to slacken fractionally through the mid-stages to be fighting out the finish.


#11 Fasika $5.00

Was backed off the map last start in the Sheraco and clearly should have won after a torrid wide run, where she was never on the track.

She will get a much easier run from the inside draw in gate 2 on this occasion and is likely to race on-speed.

If she leads and they drop anchor, nothing will be running past her. Huge threat.


Of The Others

None preferred.
