Sydney best bets for Saturday return to NSW headquarters this weekend, with a strong 10 race card scheduled at Royal Randwick.
The track is currently rated a Heavy 9 with the rail out 9m in the straight, which can favour on-pace runners.
Punters should be wary that strong westerly winds are forecast for the entire meeting.
Randwick Tip from Dean Watling
Randwick Race 2 Tip #2 Anethole $4.00
The 4YO gelding has had zero luck this prep and comes here following a tough watch for punters at Rosehill, where he was horribly held up. However, I suspect he is flying.
He gets two big factors in his favour for this clash. He draws barrier 5 and gets the 2kg claim for apprentice Tom Sherry, which will both be an advantage on the Heavy track.
We saw the pattern of the day last week at Randwick favour those who could settle on-pace and I expect similar come this Saturday.
Look for him to sit in the first half of the field, before showing his turn of foot and proving hard to hold out.
He ticks plenty of boxes and looks to have found the perfect highway race to attack.
Randwick Tip from Michael Gannon
Randwick Race 4 Tip #8 La Chevalee $2.40
The late rider booking of James McDonald makes this girl a bet.
Her two Sydney runs this prep have been full of merit and I expect her to relish the step up to 1800m.
She maps perfectly to sit on the leader's back with cover in the run and will be poised to unleash her turn of foot on turning for home.
I concede that she's currently rock bottom odds after being hammered since the booking of J-Mac, so don't be surprised to see her drift a little prior to start time.
Randwick Tip from Adrian Sciglitano
Randwick Race 1 Tip #5 Honeycreeper $2.30
I'm keen to be with the 2YO Godolphin filly Honeycreeper, who looks perfectly placed to return to the winner's circle.
The daughter of Teofilo, out of homebred mare Painted Firetail, was very good last start when racing against the older horses at Rosehill over 1300m.
She settled off a slow tempo carved out by Tycoonist, before rallying to the line to finish fourth only beaten 2 lengths.
Prior to that run when first-up, she was a dominant winner over 1200m at Newcastle after sitting wide in transit.
She has strong 2YO form from last preparation behind Ranch Hand and another solid effort at Canterbury, which came against a strong bias.
The filly peaks third-up for this clash, has the perfect platform to run a strong 1400m and the return to her own age looks perfect.
She maps for the gun run in behind the speed and I expect her to be too strong late.
