Warwick Farm Tips – June 30
Guide to the best bets for Sydney Racing.
Race 2 1:25pm AEST – No. 4 Dragonstone
There has been a huge betting plunge for Dragonstone, which isn’t surprising. The Mark Newnham-trained two-year-old finished solidly for third on debut at Canterbury and race experience is key against this field. He was only a short margin behind the winner and it backed up impressive trial form.
Dragonstone won a trial at Randwick when beating multiple race winner Najmaty. It’s a stellar trial for this contest and he’s bred to handle the wet conditions.
The son of Mikki Isle already has experience running on a soft surface and drawing wide could be an advantage in these conditions. We expect jockey Joshua Parr to settle him just off the speed before warming up around the turn. He won’t take long to win a race and he gets ideal conditions on Wednesday.
Race 3 2:00pm AEST – No. 2 Skedaddle
Punters felt let down when Skedaddle finished fourth at an odds-on quote fresh up at Randwick, but we’re a forgiving bunch. The Les Bridge-trained three-year-old was only two lengths behind the winner and she was clearly in need of the run. Punters should look at her debut win, which is a much better form guide.
The daughter of I Am Invincible backed up her debut win with two emphatic trial wins at Randwick and Bridge knows how to prepare young fillies. His stable is having an excellent run and Skedaddle could firm to an odds-on quote again, so jumping on the early value could be the way to go.
Race 5 5:10pm AEST – No. 3 Juventus
Juventus is paying big odds, but he’s not worth dropping just yet. The experienced six-year-old does his best racing at Warwick Farm with two starts for a win and a second placing. His recent form hasn’t been outstanding, but the big son of Hard Spun comes out of an open class event and he wasn’t far behind them when fifth.
He is a two-time winner at the distance and in soft conditions, so the statistics read well and given the odds punters get, we wouldn’t be so quick to rule him out.
Race 7 6:20pm AEST – No. 16 Promise of Success
We love the way Promise of Success ambled up to them last start at Warwick Farm before putting them away with ease. The five-year-old mare was heavily backed on that occasion and she didn’t let punters down, so they have come again. She will start as the firm favourite and rightfully so after scoring a two-length win over a quality field in similar conditions.
Promise of Success is living up to her name and the imported British runner will relish the soft track conditions. She gets in nicely on the weights at 55kg and off the inside draw with Tommy Berry in the saddle, she demands serious attention in the final race of the day.
