2019 Spring Champion Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Taking the G1 winner in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick on Saturday. Castelvecchio is getting to great odds at $4.80.
Looks a two horse war on paper with two very handy 3YOs set to clash in this year's Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes. Tempo looks solid enough.
CASTELVECCHIO (1) was solid enough first up before not disgraced in the Golden Rose when going to the line on the heels of Kubrick. Ran the 10th fastest L200m of the day and is sure to relish the step up in trip. Exploded when stepping up to the mile last preparation and is sure to relish getting back to Randwick. Top rated on best form, the one to beat.
SHADOW HERO (2) made a mess of them last start and it's very hard seeing him taking a backwards step here. Nonetheless there was nothing between the main pair in the Dulcify, has the market over-reacted?
QUICK THINKER (4) should relish the wet-track, while JUST THINKIN' (3) has to be kept safe with the blinkers on for the first time.

2019 Roman Consul Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Conditions could well help our on-topper in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Roman Consul Stakes, Cosmic Force loves it wet and he is $2.30.
Easily one of the main highlights of the afternoon with this year's Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes. Expect a fairly solid tempo, especially if they are ready to go with Microphone.
COSMIC FORCE (2) went down narrowly first up but lost no admirers and is expected to improve sharply second up. Will have no concerns with the prospect of a wet track and he holds a key fitness edge over this main rival. Should press forward and be in this for a long way.
MICROPHONE (1) creates plenty of interest in his return, it's no secret the stable have held him back with the sole focus being the Coolmore. Nash is a notable booking and anywhere near his peak and he is sure to be in the finish.
STANDOUT (4) continues to raise the bar and while meeting CF 2.5kg worse off at the weights, he still has to be respected. ACCESSION (3) a big watch with the blinkers on for the first time.

1st – 2 Cosmic Force
2nd – 1 Microphone
3rd – 4 Standout
4th – 3 Accession
2019 Angst Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Going for more Chris Waller success in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2019 Angst Stakes, Noire is closing in on a win and she is at $5.
Wide open mares' event with a number of these more than capable in this year's Group 3 Angst Stakes. Just an even tempo anticipated.
NOIRE (1) closed off well late behind Mister Sea Wolf last start and should be right at her peak racing third up. Sure to relish the conditions on offer and have to love the booking of Nash. Expected to get back from the wide draw, but should be very strong late.
DYSLEXIC (4) looked to have her chance last start behind Mizzy, but still ran well. More than capable in this line up, just not sure she'll love the conditions.
NETTOYER (2) is simply flying and while has to be kept safe on the quick back up. She should eat the mud. AMANGIRI (8) was only fair first up, but can improve.

1st – 1 Noire
2nd – 4 Dyslexic
3rd – 2 Nettoyer
