Randwick and Caulfield Races with Chris Saturday October 21st

20 October, 2023


Best Bets

RACE 4: (6) MARQUESS – Impressive stayer in the making with three wins from his four starts since resuming, making it five from his last six. Has offset a month since his latest win over 1900m in this class at Rosehill (beating a subsequent winner easily) with a strong 1200m trial and confident he has the talent to overcome a 3kg weight increase.

RACE 5: (12) COMMEMORATIVE – Giant filly with enormous potential. Made a huge impact on debut when she bolted away with a maiden over 1100m at Canterbury in June with the Godolphin stable immediately putting her on ice for some lofty targets (Thousand Guineas?).  Pitting her against older rivals first-up is a gamble but she’s carrying no weight and soft trials have her ready to explode fresh. 

RACE 7: (11) UNSPOKEN – Import took his time to find his legs in his first local prep but has really hit his straps since resuming with two strong wins over 1500m and 1600m at Rosehill and Randwick. Plenty of merit in his determined last start win under 58kg over this course and distance and holds the scope to go on with it dropping 6kg to the limit weight from a kind draw.

RACE 10: (16) KA BLING – Fitter and can take advantage of his inside draw with a handy drop in weight.


Best Bets
