Randwick – Kensington

Race 4: 1. Badoosh $2.75, 5. Kingsheir$2.45

Looks a two-horse race in the first leg here. Badoosh is third-up after a win and a placing to start his prep. His second was first-up behind Not Feint Hearted who won next start whilst second-up, the blinkers were added and was too good for his rivals. He will appreciate the drying track and step up to a mile. Kingsheir hold a similar formline though didn’t handle the wet last start. Seems the main danger.

Race 5: 2. Big Parade – $2.30, 3. November Man – $18.20, 5. Juan Diva – $5.00, 7. Plaquette – $4.15, 8. Quatum – $8.10

Big Parade is first-up for a new stable on the back of two solid trials. He is progressive, only missed a place once and is drawn ideally. November Man loves running at Kensington and has come up massive odds, knockout chance. Juan Diva will appreciate the good track, second-up and is drawn well. Forgive last on the slow going at Canterbury. Plaquette is first-up off one trial, beat home Regimental Band and Spaceboy last prep. She had to be included. Quatum was too bad to be true last start, willing to forgive in the hopes for improvement.

Race 6: 5. Get The Idea – $14.80, 6. Buzz – $5.60, 7. Suave – $3.65, 9. Aoraki – $4.85

Get The Idea beat home the talented Opacity first-up last prep. He steps backs from Group company where he was plain to BM72 grade. 1.5kg claim of Jean Van Overmeire is a tick. Buzz steps back up in class after winning two on the trot and is also drawn ideally. He has been freshened for this and performs well fresh. Suave has been disappointing this prep though he can be forgiven after both runs were on heavy going. The good track will suit though is drawn poorly. Aoraki will go back from barrier 12 but that is suited for him. Will want further but will be flying late.

Race 7: 1. Amitto – $6.20, 2. In Lighten Me – $9.60, 4. Archanna – $2.45, 7. Instant Attraction – $5.40, 13. Front Money – $7.20

Amitto is first-up on the back of two trials. She is very consistent and gets a 3kg claim of Louise Day, knockout chance. In Lighten Me is a forgive for last start and will prefer the good track. Archanna is the classy runner here, one trial lead up and is the one to beat. Instant Attraction has had 2 trials leading into this. Forget her last prep, she comes back fresh and at her best can put most of these away. Front Money is second emergency and may not get a run. If she gets a run, she gets a good track which is a tick and is a huge chance to nab a win.

100% = $200 or 100% without Emergency in Race 9 = $160
