Racing Preview @ Randwick (Kenso), Saturday, 17th August 2019

August 17, 2019

Good day punters. Blake from The Leg Up Australia. Racing on Saturday at
Randwick on the Kenso track. Currently we’re on a good three track. Weather is fine, so the conditions in Sydney are absolutely perfect. I think there are a couple
of good bets at that meeting. We got the P.B. Lawrence
Stakes at Caulfield, which will feature Mystic
Journey and Hartnell, so I’m excited about that. And then we have the Group 3
Spring Stakes at Morphettville. So plenty of good racing around
the country, but let’s get stuck in and find some
winners at Randwick. I think the best bet of the
day comes up in the third race. It is number nine Pandemic
from the James Cummings stable. Tommy Berry’s in the saddle,
he’s drawn barrier two, only 53 kilos on his back. He trialed really nicely prior
to his maiden win at Wyong. The times were really
good there, he got back, he was about sixth in the run, and he showed a really nice turn of foot to put the race away. The second horse has come out and won, the third horse has come out and won, and as I said, the times were really nice, forms been franked, I think he can go to a benchmark 70 over 1100 meters, on a Saturday and win at
his second race start. I think he’s a very good play, there’s been a little bit
of money for him early on which shows a bit of confidence about him and I just think he’s
a really good win play. So that’s Randwick Race 3 no. 9 Pandemic, the best bet of the day at Randwick. I think the value bet of the
day comes up in the Spring Preview, race seven,
number one Patrick Erin. You’re probably gonna think I’m
mad but I think the horse is absolutely flying and I
think he is well placed in this race first up. Last year he didn’t get
beat far in this race, he only got beat 2.2 lengths by Flow. He carried 57 kilos in this race. He got back and he had some of the best closing sectionals of the race. So he didn’t get beat far and he finished off really nice. There is a lot of speed in this race, which is going to suit him. Samantha Clenton’s in the saddle, so she’s gonna take two off his back. So he is only gonna come in with 59 kilos. And he did only get beaten
four and a half lengths by Winx first up last preparation in the Group 2 Apollo Stakes. He’s got Group 1 form
around him and I just think he really likes good tracks. He’s going to get back
towards the inside and I can see him weaving a passage and getting over the top of them late. There is about 50 to one
available about this horse and I think that Winx form is good enough for a race like this. So that is Randwick, Race
7 no. 1 Patrick Erin, the value bet of the day. I think the hardest to beat
at Randwick on Saturday, is race eight, number 10, Venezuela. This horse is ex. Lloyd Williams. He ends up at the Kim Waugh stable and I have loved both his trials. The first trial we saw Juventus
finishing in behind him. And Juventus came out and won
at Warwick Farm on Wednesday. And then he wasn’t asked to
do much last trial behind horses like Wolfe and Goathland. He’s drawn barrier nine. First up last preparation
he was finishing off nicely in behind them in a race
at Sandown Lakeside. And then he came out and won very impressively at Kyneton. I think he’s probably
progressed from that campaign. And I think 1400 meters
is going to be okay for him first up. There is enough speed in
the race for him to get back and get over the top of them. So we gonna be having a play
on him, and there has been a little bit of money about him early on which is a good sign. So that is Randwick
Race 8 no. 10 Venezuela. The hardest to beat. Thanks for watching. If you enjoyed our content,
