2020 Underwood Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Underwood Stakes lands on the most promising one. Russian Camelot can stake his claims for the Spring at $1.95.
Trap For Fools likely to find the front here with Gailo Chop and Arcadia Queen might be hot on their heels from her low draw. A potentially awkward draw and speed map might be little queries around RUSSIAN CAMELOT (10) but there can be little doubt that he is the one that they all have to beat on the back of his big return in the Makybe Diva at Flemington. Posted wide there but kept coming and the extra 200m only helps.
ARCADIA QUEEN (9) draws to get a softer run. She can camp on the leaders and thought she did enough last time to think that she might get back to something like her best now. That would go a long way to winning it.
MR QUICKIE (6) ran a cracker first up and has to have a hope off that - as does HUMIDOR (2) who returned to form with a fresh win and while more is required of him here we know what he is capable of. HARBOUR VIEWS (8) was okay in the same race and might be next best.

2020 Thousand Guineas Prelude: Tips And Race Preview
Going for an unbeaten filly in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Thousand Guineas Prelude, Instant Celebrity under Craig Williams is fav at $3.10.
Off their low gates expecting Letzbeglam, Night Raid and River Night to settle handy and keep things honest. INSTANT CELEBRITY (4) comes across from Adelaide where she has done nothing but impress to this point. Stiffer opposition now but she rattled home to score last time like a really smart one and we keep seeing these South Aussies measure up. They can again.
NIGHT RAID (5) won the lead up at the Valley well enough to think that she has a good hope. Took a while for PERSONAL (6) to get going in the Danehill so thinking 1400m suits now and probably the mile next time. MOZZIE MONSTER (8) was left with too much to do last week. Ran on well and surely settles closer from the low draw this time. Not sure LETZBEGLAM (1) wants the 1400m but she was okay first up and should land in a great spot.
2020 THOUSAND GUINEAS PRELUDE – SELECTIONS
1st – 4 Instant Celebrity
2nd – 5 Night Raid
3rd – 6 Personal
4th – 8 Mozzie Monster
2020 Caulfield Guineas Prelude: Tips And Race Preview
An impressive provincial winner heads the Tips and Race Preview for the 2020 Caulfield Guineas Prelude. Cambourne takes the big step to this company and he is at $5.50.
From wide out Crosshaven, Prague and Aysar will slide across with Bartley handy. CAMBOURNE (10) looked really good winning at Bendigo, getting better and better as the race developed. This is clearly a big step up in class but he looks sure to improve again and tipping he proves up to it.
Similarly AYSAR (8) impressed winning at Sandown and looks set to measure up to these tougher races now. He's a good talent. PRAGUE (1) has the established form and ratings. He was good fresh and better for that hit out. Think he can be better up to 1400m now as well.
CROSSHAVEN (3) won the Exford at Flemington well enough to think he has a chance again. FLYING AWARD (4) ran well here first up and will improve out to 1400m now.

1st – 10 Cambourne
2nd – 8 Aysar
