RANDWICK (EVEREST DAY)
Tony Brassel’s race-by-race preview for The Everest day: “A lot to like about her fifth to Overpass in subsequent Rosehill trial. With an okay jump she’s a terrific hope”.
Tony Brassel’s Top 5 for The Everest: “Drawn on the rail, it’s far from the perfect gate according to co-trainer Peter Moody whose programming hasn’t looked too perfect, either”.
Runner-by-runner guide: King Charles III Stakes: “The winner of 10 of his 14 mile starts and he’s unbeaten at Randwick. Perfectly drawn.”
CAULFIELD (CAULFIELD GUINEAS DAY)
Mark Guest’s race-by-race analysis for Caulfield Guineas Day: “Lightly-framed and lightly-raced import. Has turned in several worthwhile runs when fresh and the Euro staying blood never goes astray Down Under.”
Tony Brassel’s Top 5 for the Caulfield Guineas: “Like The Autumn Sun, Militarize comes into the Guineas straight off a Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) victory at Rosehill”
Caulfield Guineas runner-by-runner guide: “Will relish getting out to a mile and it’s worth noting he was five weeks between runs going into that Golden Rose. The stable will have him ready to fire and he maps to get a good run from a middle alley.”
RANDWICK AND CAULFIELD
Jockey inside mail: Nash Rawiller, Tim Clark, Blake Shinn and John Allen on their rides: “He’s getting up to the trip that should really suit him now. He’s been set for the Spring Champion so I’m expecting him to put his hand up again”
Trainer inside mail: Peter Moody and the Chris Waller stable: “She’s a really talented filly. We like her quite a lot. She has excellent readings on E-Trakka, stride length analysis and things like that”
The Armchair Punter’s tips across Randwick and Caulfield: “I’m especially keen to bet in the Caulfield Guineas where there’s a bona fide star running around and I reckon it’s virtually a case of ‘put in – take out’
The Everest runner-by-runner guide: “Every new challenge thrown at him – he’s come through with flying colours including his two goes at weight-for-age when winning the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup in May and the Group 2 Premiere Stakes first-up a fortnight ago.”
The Big Bets: A punter has backed a Caulfield Guineas runner to win $560,000.
Expert tips for Saturday’s major races — The Everest, Caulfield Guineas, King Charles III Stakes, Toorak Handicap, Might And Power Stakes.
Laurie Sainsbury and Cameron Happ’s tips for Saturday: “The leaders sat up until the 600m and they dashed home in 33.81 seconds, for him to round them up was indicative that he had good ability.”
Tips from the Big Bookies: “He was outstanding first-up in the Memsie Stakes and has had the six weeks to freshen up. His record in big races speaks for itself. The 1200m is his as well.”
Matt Williams and Ben Dorries’ Everest and Guineas Day column: “When he drew gate 5 I thought to myself ‘that’s the race done and dusted’.”
NEW SOUTH WALES
The Armchair Punter’s predicted finishing order in The Everest: “Early markets have been adjusted due to the barrier draw but for mine that only gets us a better price about my top selection”.
Clinton Payne’s tips for Everest day: $8 best bet: “I’m really keen on taking on Mr Brightside in the King Charles III Stakes at Randwick on Saturday”.
Tony Thomas’s race-by-race analysis for Caulfield: “He settled back at The Valley last start, looped the field and proved far too strong. The $6 on offer is attractive.”
Grame Carey’s race-by-race preview for Eagle Farm: “He has handled a seven-day back-up successfully in the past and will appreciate dropping back to 1600m in this class. He makes his own luck and Ryan Maloney will ensure every post a winner”.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA / WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Heath Pope (Morphettville) and Aaron Mills’ (Ascot) tips: “The run was a total forgive and while she finished last, she raced no closer than five wide, without cover. Plummets a massive 7.5kg and maps to enjoy a much softer run, sitting just off what should be a good tempo”.
