RANDWICK

 

RACE ONE

Those that were watching the late fluctuations would have been happy as Anaheed ($4.60) had a comfortable victory in the first at Royal Randwick.

Anaheed firmed from $5 to $4.60 in the five minutes before the start of the race.

Zoushack was the best backed runner on raceday but finished out of the placings as Disruptor ($5.50) and Ready’s Girl ($21) were second and third.

BETS: Anaheed $1,000 @ $5, $2,000 @ $1.95 PLACE

BETS: Disruptor $1,800 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5.50

 

RACE TWO

In an extremely open TAB Highway Handicap, $8.50 second favourite Tristan De Angel stormed home.

Mediterranean was the best backed runner today and went in as the $8 favourite.

There were some wild firmers today, with Manangatang $51 into $16 and O’Driscoll $51 into $19.

Lawan ($13) was second past the post while the early leader Manangatang held on for third.

BETS: Manangatang: $1,500 @ $16

BETS: Lawan: $1,000 @ $21

BETS: Velaro: $2,000 @ $11

 

RACE THREE

The bookies were happy to take on the popular runner Cristobal, with the James Cummings-trained filly drifting from $2.50 to $3.40 with the favourite finishing unplaced.

The $11 chance I Like It Easy held off Evalina ($12-$7) and Bubblesntroubles ($5) down the straight for an impressive victory.

There was a late $8,000 wager at $5.50 on unplaced Unguarded.

BETS: Bubblesntroubles: $1,000 @ $5

BETS: I Like It Easy: $1,000 e/w @ $13/$3, $2,000 @ $10 & $3,000 @ $2.70 to place

RACE FOUR

The third best backed runner Stampede ($5.50-$8.50) bolted in to win The Star Mile.

Punters had narrowed it down pre-race favourite Goodfella ($3.90) and Kaonic ($4.60) but both never looked in the hunt with the former hanging on for third behind Testashadow ($18).

There was one $500 eachway wager on Stampede at $8/$2.50 in the minutes prior to the race.

BETS: Goodfella $1,000 @ $5, $6,000 @ $5, $1,000 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4 (TWICE), $1,000 @ $3.90

BETS: Kaonic: $1,500 @ $4, $4,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 eachway @ $4.60/$1.80

BETS: Danon Liberty $1,000 @ $10 (TWICE)

 

RACE 5

It was a win for the bookies in the inaugural Kosciuszko with $71 outsider Belflyer causing a massive boilover with a stunning late run.

The horse, who drifted today from $26 to $71, was the third least backed runner in t

he race as Victorem ($4.40) took the majority of attention from punters.

Suncraze ($15) and Awesome Pluck ($9) rounded out the placings for the huge trifecta of $8,438.

Don't Give A Damn was a notable firmer today going $3.90-$3.30 while Awesome Pluck ($15-$9) and The Monstar ($4.80-$6) attracted plenty of interest too.

BETS: The Monstar $1,000 e/w @ $5/$1.90, $1,000 @ $5, $2,000 @ $5 (TWICE)

BETS: Don’t Give A Damn $1,550 @ $3.80, $1,500 @ $3.30, $1,000 @ $3.30 (FOUR BETS)

BETS: Victorem $1,000 @ $4.20, $4,000 @ $4.40, $1,000 @ $4.40 (TWICE), $2,000 @ $4.40, $1,500 @ $4.40 & $3,193 @ $1.75 to place, $1,650 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4.60 (TWICE), $1,000 @ $4.40 (TWICE)

BETS: After All That $1,000 @ $8

BETS: Awesome Pluck $1,500 @ 10 & $500 @ $2.90 to place, $1,000 each-way @ $10/$2.90

With the first 4 on the Kossie paying a whopping $95,346.60 on the NSW tote, there were a few TAB customers that managed to get a slice of that dividend.

Pick of the bunch is detailed below but essentially this punter outlaid $3 and got back nearly $12,000!

 SELECTIONS: 4,6,7,12 (boxed)

OUTLAY: $3

FLEXI: 12.5%

RETURN: $11,918.33

RACE SIX

Punters were on the money in the Sydney Stakes with the four best backed runners making up the top four in 1200m prelude to the TAB Everest.

Pierata started as a $4.40 favourite with Jungle Edge and those two battled down the straight before Pierata put a gap in them with 100 metres to go, while Clearly Innocent ($9) finished in third.

There was a $2,260 wager at $4.40 on the winner just prior to the start of the race.

BETS: Jungle Edge $3,000 @ $4.80, $1,200 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4.60, $5,000 each-way @ $4.40/$1.80, $1,000 @ $4.40 (TWICE), $2,000 @ $4.40

BETS: Pierata $10,000 @ $4.40 TWICE, $2,000 @ $4.40, $2,260 @ $4.40

BETS: Burning Passion: $1,000 @ $14

 

RACE SEVEN

It was the worst result possible for TAB with Redzel winning the TAB Everest for the second consecutive year.

The Kerrin McEvoy ridden superstar was a slight drifter today from $6.50 to $7.50 as the majority of the money came for $5 favourite Shoals.

Another drifter on the day, Trapeze Artist (from $9 to $10) stormed home to claim second, while the $23 outsider Osborne Bulls was third.

There were several big bets today, with a $10,000 wager at $8 on Redzel just minutes before the race start. Of the others, there was a strong push for Graff ($18-$9) which halved its quote from the morning.

BETS: Redzel $10,000 @ $8, $4,000 @ $8

BETS: Graff $7,000 @ $16 & $2,000 @ $4.60 to place

BETS: U S Navy Flag $3,000 @ $10, $10,000 @ $11, $3,000 @ $16

BETS: Le Romain $8,000 @ $3.90 to place

BETS: Shoals $5,690 @ $2 to place, $4,000 @ $5

 

RACE EIGHT

It was a bad result for punters in the Craven Plate with the heavily backed $2.90 favourite Egg Tart finishing in third.

Egg Tart was probably the most popular runner of the day along with The Autumn Sun (Caulfield Guineas) with over 70 per cent of the money today.

It was the big firmer of the day, Moss n Dale, who shortened from $9 to $4.60 that was first past the post.

The $126 outsider Doukhan edged out Egg Tart for second.

BETS: Moss n Dale: $1,250 each-way @ $9/$2.80

BETS: Egg Tart: $1,000 @ $3.30 (TWICE), $1.305 @ $3.30, $1,000 @ $3.10, $1,500 @ $3, $1,000 each-way @ $3/$1.50, $2,000 @ $3, $1,500 @ $2.90, $1,600 @ $3, $5,000 @ $3, $4,000 @ $2.90, $3,500 @ $3 (TWICE), $5,000 each-way @ $3/$1.45

 

RACE NINE

Big Blue caused a big upset in the St Leger Stakes, with the $34 chance leading from start to finish.

The best backed runner in the race, $6 chance One Foot In Heaven, finished in second place while Red Cardinal ($11) was third.

A $20,000 bet was placed on the favourite Haripour at $3.20, just prior to the start of the race while One Foot In Heaven attracted a sizable bet just before the jump also.

BETS: One Foot In Heaven $11,000 @ $6, $4,000 @ $6

BETS: Wall Of Fire $1,000 e/w @ $10/$2.80,

BETS: Haripour $20,000 @ $3.20, $2,000 @ $3.20 (TWICE)

BETS: Sikandarabad $2,000 @ $5

BETS: One Foot In Heaven $2,000 @ $5

 

RACE 10

It was the favourite that got the job done in the lucky last again at Randwick.

Esperance defied a late drift from $3.90 to $4.20 and was a very popular winner with Hugh Bowman ridden horse holding more than double the next best supported runner Revenire ($6), who finished in second, ahead of Lucy Rose ($9.50).

There was a $17,820 wager at $4.20 on Esperance just prior to the start of the race.

BETS: Esperance $17,820 @ $4.20

BETS: Revenire $1,000 @ $4.80, $1,000 @ $5, $1,000 @ $5.50

BETS: Bryan $1,000 each-way @ $12/$3.60

 

CAULFIELD

 

RACE ONE

Champagne Boom showed a great turn of foot to win the Inglis Debutant Stakes (1000 metres).

Sitting towards the rear of the field and down on the rails, Craig Williams barged his way into the clear on straightening and the daughter of Spirit Of Boom did the rest.

Champagne Boom ($7-$7.50) went on to beat Biscara ($8-$6-$7) and Wedgetail ($9-$6.50-$7) who also came from the rear of the field.

The winner was actually the third most popular runner in terms of money held, behind Utzon ($4.60-$5.50 fav) and Wedgetail.

BETS: Champagne Boom $1,000 @ $7.50 TWICE, $1,000 @ $7

BETS: Biscara $3,000 @ $7

BETS: Wedgetail $2,000 x $500 e/w @ $6.50/$2.30

 

RACE TWO

Iconoclasm ($4.40-$4.80) landed some nice bets after sitting just off the speed in the second event on the card.

Ridden a treat by Ben Allen, Iconoclasm raced clear to score over Fastnet Tempest ($11) and the very popular Sircconi ($4.20).

Iconoclasm was the best tried runner outside of Sircconi and the pair were easily the ones punters wanted, holding 65 percent of the total investment.

Of the others, Grande Rosso (fourth) was a notable firmer in the past 24 hours, going from $15-$9.

BETS: Iconoclasm $2,000 @ $4.80

BETS: Sircconi $2,000 @ $4.20 TWICE, $1,500 @ $4.20, $2,000 @ $4

BETS: Violate $2,000 @ $12, $1,000 e/w @ $12/$3

 

RACE THREE

Sunlight delivered punters some handy collects after it was an effortless winner of the Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200 metres).

The Tony McEvoy runner was $2.60 into $2.20 off the back of heavy support and jockey Luke Currie gave its backers no cause for concern, leading throughout to beat Humma Humma ($10) and Meryl ($5-$4.60).

Sunlight went around as one of the most popular runners in Australia today, holding nearly 70 percent of the investment and going around with more than five times the amount of money than any other runner.

BETS: Sunlight $5,000 @ $2.30, $3,000 @ $2.30, $4,000 @ $2.25, $3,000 @ $2.25, $5,000 @ $2.20 TWICE

 

RACE FOUR

Winter Bride defied a late betting drift to narrowly take out the Cape Grim Beef Steaks (1200 metres).

Jockey Ryan Maloney squeezed into the clear midway down the straight to land the cash on the heavily backed runner, which went $3.90 out to $4.80 at the jump.

She was the second most popular runner in the race behind Leather'n'lace ($5). Booker ($11-$15-$12) and Our Crown Mistress ($26-$16-$19) filled the minors with the former being nosed out on the line.

BETS: Winter Bride $1,000 @ $4.80 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $4.60 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $4.40 MULTIPLE TIMES

 

RACE FIVE

Ball of Muscle gave Craig Williams another winner on the day after he raced on the speed throughout to win the Keno Schillaci Stakes (1100 metres).

The Joe Pride-trained runner was $9.50-$13-$10 on the day and attracted some interest at the eachway price, however, the majority of punters were in the corner of Voodoo Lad ($3.50-$2.70) and Snitty Kitty ($3.90-$5-$4.80).

Ball Of Muscle was Williams' second winner of the day after piloting Champagne Boom to victory in the opener.

Spirit Of Valor ($8.50-$18) was a noted drifted but ran on to grab second while Missrock ($13) grabbed third just in front of Voodoo Lad which missed the start and was never in it.

Voodoo Lad held over half of all bets on the race and was nearly three times as popular as Snitty Kitty.

BETS: Ball Of Muscle $1,000 @ $13, $500 @ $11, $660 @ $10, $530 @ $10, $500 @ $10

BETS: Voodoo Lad $2,000 @ $3.40, $2,000 @ $3.10, $10,000 @ $2.80, $2,000 @ $2.70 MULTIPLE TIMES

 

RACE SIX

Amphitrite ($10-$14) defied a significant betting drift to land the Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600 metres).

The Darren Weir-trained filly was $8 after Tuesday's barrier draw but she continued to drift. Ridden a treat by Craig Williams, she came with a huge finishing burst to nail Fundamentalist ($81) on the line after the roughie looked to have pinched it.

Seabrook ($26) rounded out the trifecta.

Punters were left licking their wounds after Smart Melody was heavily tried. She was backed from $2.70 into $2.20 with all the big money arriving late for her. She weakened out of it after leading while Thrillster ($6) had some good money for her too but ended up just behind the placegetters.

BETS: Amphitrite $300 e/w @ $14/$3.60, $250 x $600 e/w @ $14/$3.40, $1,000 @ $13

BETS: Smart Melody $10,000 @ $2.20, $9,950 @ $2.20, $5,000 @ $2.20, $5,000 @ $2.15

 

RACE SEVEN

The Toorak Handicap (1600 metres) was a fantastic betting race but in the end, the best mover landed the money.

Land Of Plenty $6-$4.20 was crunched in betting and swept around the field to score impressively after being near last on the turn.

Damian Lane was the toast of punters who jumped on the Darren Weir runner, with the pair racing away to beat Hartnell ($6.50-$9) and Siege Of Quebec ($10).

Shillelagh, who opened the day a $5 favourite, went out the gate slightly thanks to the support for the winner and jumped an $8 chance. It wound up fourth.

Of the unplaced brigade, Jungle Cat ($9.50-$7) attracted several big bets throughout the day including $10,000 and $8,000 @ $8 respectively.

BETS: Land Of Plenty $5,000 @ $4.20, $3,000 @ $4.20,

BETS: Jungle Cat $10,000 @ $8, $8,000 @ $8, $3,000 @ $8

BETS: Waging War $2,000 e/w @ $16/$4.80 AVERAGED OUT

 

RACE EIGHT

Benbatl ($5.50-$9.50) narrowly held on to win the Caulfield Stakes (2000 metres) despite being a drifter in the market.

The Saeed Bin Suroor-trained runner was had some money come for him, however, it was nothing compared to the popular Unforgotten ($4.60) which held 10 times more than the winner.

Benbatl enjoyed a good run behind the leader before peeling around its heels turning for home, then fighting off the challenge of fellow Godolphin runner Blair House ($12) with Humidor rattling home for third.

Unforgotten, responsible for roughly a third of the total investment, was unplaced and went around as the most popular runner in front of Humidor and Night's Watch ($9.50-$14).

BETS: Benbatl $1,000 e/w @ $9.50/$2.90, $1,500 e/w @ $9.50/$2.90, $1,000 @ $9.50, $3,000 e/w @ $6/$2.20, $4,000 @ $6.50 (taken earlier in the week)

BETS: Humidor $4,000 @ $6.50

BETS: Tosen Basil $5,000 @ $10

 

RACE NINE

The Autumn Sun ($1.65-$1.70) was the best backed runner all day and did the right thing by punters.

Delivering a hammer blow to TAB, The Autumn Sun sat three-wide the trip before putting paid to his rivals in the home straight to streak away and beat Vassilator ($101) and Oohood ($9).

The Chris Waller star held 70 percent of the total investment and was more than 10 times as popular as the next best backed runner, which was Oohood. The Tony McEvoy horse was $15 after Tuesday's barrier draw.

BETS: The Autumn Sun $20,500 @ $1.70, $25,000 @ $1.14 PLACE, $22,500 @ $1.16 PLACE, $9,500 @ $1.70, $7,870 @ $1.70, $6,000 @ $1.70, $10,000 @ $1.65

 

RACE 10

There was a sneaky little move for Yucatan ($9.50-$6.50-$7) who was ultra impressive in taking out the Herbert Power Stakes (2400 metres).

Ridden a treat by James McDonald, Yucatan was pulled up near the line but still had a fair margin over Brimham Rocks ($9.50) and A Prince Of Arran ($19-$41) at the finish.

It was a blowout for punters as the majority of the money was riding with Gallic Chieftain ($6-$4.80), Rising Red ($6.50) and Big Duke ($11) along with Brimham Rocks.

BETS: Yucatan $1,500 @ $10, $1,000 @ $10 MULTIPLE TIMES $2,000 e/w @ $10/$3.10, $2,000 @ $6.50

BETS: Gallic Cheiftain $3,000 @ $5, $2,500 @ $5, $5,000 @ $4.80, $3,000 @ $4.80

BETS: Rising Red $2,000 @ $6.50
