  • Race 6: No.5 Anagain

We have the best bets picked from across the meeting with a Best Bet and other value selections for the Randwick racecourse.

Race 2: No.7 Ballet D’esprit


The Michael Freedman-trained Ballet D’esprit is yet to miss a podium finish in four race starts to date and second-up here, looks set for back-to-back victories in this event.

Last start, the I Am Invincible filly resumed after 18 weeks off the scene and showing plenty of strength on fresh legs, proved too good in a Class 1 over 1000m at Kembla Grange.

She steps up in grade here, taking on BM72 company, with Tyler Schiller as the new pilot.

The stable fit the winkers for the first time while the three-year-old is two from two on wet tracks so conditions look ideal.

Ideally drawn in gate three and down 3kgs on her last start, she looks every chance of saluting again.

Race 5: No.2 Don Diego De Vega


Annabel Neasham saddles-up Don Diego De Vega here who is second-up and looks set to take out this contest.

Last start, the Lope De Vega gelding was having his first start on Australian soil and after 12 months off the scene, turned plenty of heads when he beat all but one home in a BM78 over 1800m on a Heavy 8 at Rosehill.

With Jason Collett aboard, he settled mid-field, one off the fence, and once clear in the run home, chased the winner all the way to line, beaten less than a length, with plenty to spare.

Collett sticks with him for this assignment and from gate four he maps to settle mid-field again.

Fitter for that first-up run, a clear passage to the line in this contest should see him very hard to hold out and is our best of the day.

Race 6: No.5 Anagain


The Joe Pride-trained Anagain took a while but finally recorded her first win for this campaign and looks on-track here to make it two-straight in this event.

Last start, the Hinchinbrook mare broke a run of outs when she did best to take out a BM78 Hcp over 1400m on a Heavy 8 at Rosehill.

With Jay Ford having his eighth ride on the mare, she overcame her wide draw (gate 11 of 12), she took over inside the final 100m and despite Ford dropping his whip, she hung on for a good win.

The five-year-old meets similar company here over the same trip where she draws much better in gate two and maps to settle near mid-field on the fence. 

Ford remains aboard for this assignment and with a trouble-free run here, she can figure in the finish again.

Race 8: No.5 Testator Silens


Another from the Joe Pride stable is Testator Silens who is three starts into this campaign and now looks ready to win.

Last start, the Star Witness gelding was third-up and took home another second prize when he beat all but one home in a BM88 over 1500m at Rosehill.

After looking beaten on straightening, the six-year-old showed plenty of strength to fight back and finish within a short head of victory that day with Nash Rawiller in the saddle.

He faces similar company here over the shorter trip of 1400m and maps to settle near mid-field from barrier eight.

Rawiller steers the ship again and with a clear run to the line, he can go one better in this contest.

A winner when fourth-up last preparation, he looks the one to beat here.
