Race-by-race preview and tips for Randwick on Saturday

2. Howgoodareyou charged through the grades in her first campaign, winning four from six with two minor placings. She did get control from in front in a number of those wins, but this race promises to be a similar shape. Would be more bullish with her over a touch further, but the best win of her first preparation was over 1500m, where she gapped Call Di. A kick-off point of 1300m isn’t a world away from that. With early support for a couple of her rivals, she is getting out to a tempting price. 7. Gently Rolled made up good late ground in Midway company first up, which lays the platform for a good preparation. The creep out to 1300m suits second up. Would have liked to have seen more speed on paper for her here, however. Wonder if there is a temptation to push the button early on 5. Afterlight. She’s won three races this campaign, but the two best were from in front.
How to play it: Howgoodareyou to win.


1. Griff shouldn’t have any trouble crossing the two drawn inside him to lead this field – and comfortably. That looks a huge advantage. Can’t imagine too many will be bustled early with bigger goals over the carnival in mind. Griff’s natural speed will see him prominent, despite having won out to the mile last campaign. One of those mile wins was in the Caulfield Guineas, after which his rating soared. Griff will lump 60kg. That’s another challenge. Have been taken by the way this Trapeze Artist colt has been trialling ahead of his return. He’s looked particularly sharp.
5. Moravia is most likely to keep Griff company up front. It’s easy to forget that what he did last campaign was all in his first preparation. It all started in a 900m Newcastle maiden. Two starts later he ran Cylinder to a nose in the Run To The Rose.
How to play it: Griff to win.


The gamble with 4. Fully Lit is where he gets to from the gate. There will be intent, of course, looking to cross and lead, but in a 1100m two-year-old race with a $2million prize pool, no rivals will be affording him any favours. Fully Lit made a big impression the way he won at Rosehill on debut three weeks ago. He strode forward, led and charged clear. 2. Rue De Royale is a strong closer. He was gapped by impressive filly Bold Bastille on debut at Moonee Valley, and not suited by the track, before running a luckless second to Shangri La Express in the Golden Gift. 12. Rag Queen came from last to win on debut at Canterbury. She profiles as the sleeper in this.

2. Omni Man is a 1000m specialist and flies fresh. This looks the perfect race for him first up. He resumed last campaign at Warwick Farm where he covered ground in the run, yet still put away Insurrection with 59kg on his back. Like the prospect of Omni Man getting a bunny to chase. Some of his better wins have been from that position. That’s the scenario that confronts him on Saturday with speed machine 8. Frilled drawn inside of him. Omni Man pairs well with Tim Clark, has tuned up for this with two trials and given the progress he made last campaign, is right up to this level. 3. Derry Grove charged home to win at weight for age first up at the Gold Coast. It was only a couple of starts ago he was knocking around in Highway Handicap company.

7. Marquess ripped through the grades last preparation. He won three of his six starts and was luckless in one of those defeats. The best, and most dominant win, came over 1900m, so that bares thought when assessing him over the mile here, but like the intent of tackling this trip first up. Two nice trials, maps to get a lovely run following main threat 8. Amor Victorious into the straight and profiles like there is still so much more to come. Amor Victorious got control first up at Randwick over 1400m, but you had to be impressed by the way he quickened to put his seven rivals to the sword late. 2. Diamil’s record suggests he improves into his campaigns, but resuming over the mile suggests he more forward.

3. Tintookie came with a rush to beat Our Kobison first up at Randwick over 1000m before Our Kobison turned the tables two weeks later out to 1100m. Tintookie lost little in defeat, however. She clocked a sub-33-second split for her last 600m. It was the quickest of the meeting. Like the progression out to 1200m now third up and Kerrin McEvoy, who has ridden her in her past two starts, stays aboard. Looks to have returned in career best form. 9. Shezanalister has also come back with a bang this time in. She went straight to the front first up at Canterbury and never gave her rivals a chance. It was dominant. She backed that up with another comfortable win at Warwick Farm on Australia Day. She was always in control.
