Racing Tips – Saturday Best Bets for Caulfield and Randwick

Expect soft going at Caulfield and a heavy deck at Randwick.

Best Bet

2. Chain of Lightning
Caulfield R7 (3:45pm)

Chain of Lightning was outstanding at her first start for Peter Moody and the filly can win again. She showed brilliant speed to take up the running there, leading throughout to give nothing else a chance. She ran slick time, almost a full second faster than the BM84 on the same card. Can win again.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

4. Unusual Culture
Caulfield R3 (1:15pm)

Unusual Culture was a touch disappointing on her Australian debut but suspect she might have bumped into pretty smart one in Chain of Lightning, today’s best bet. Plus, that was 1200m and she didn’t even run over less than 1400m in her native NZ. Expect Linda Meech to press forward from the wide draw and she can bounce back here.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

6. Marakopa
Randwick R5 (1:35pm)

Marakopa has struck a rich vein of form and can prove hard to beat on the heavy ground that he relishes. Since winning here at cricket score odds here three starts back he confirmed it was no fluke with good efforts in the Brisbane and Stayers Cups. Tom Sherry should sit just off favourite The Milkybar Kid and hopefully prove too strong late.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

10. Mariamia
Caulfield R8 (4:20pm)

No trainer improves horses like Joe Pride and he has taken Mariamia to a new level since the mare was transferred into his stable four starts back. She has recorded a win and at her last two, run very well in stakes company in Brisbane and Sydney. She will likely be suited by the drop to 1200m and the booking of Jamie Kah is a plus.

Recommended Price: $6.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

9. Sunrise Ruby
Randwick R10 (4:40pm)

Sunrise Ruby is an elite wet tracker who can follow up on an excellent first up performance at Randwick by winning here. She really exploded through the line over the 1100m, and 1200 second up looks the perfect scenario for her. Brenton Avdulla will position her back of midfield and run over them late.

Recommended Price: $4.20
Confidence Level: 4/5

7. Sonaree
Caulfield R9 (4:52pm)

Sonaree threw in a poor run last start but that was uncharacteristic and he has been back to the jumpouts since, where he went really well. If he can find his prior form he is right in this race at a very appealing price. Linda Meech should give him run of the race from barrier two.

Recommended Price: $9.00/3.00
Confidence Level: 3/5
