Race 1 – the $27,000 Autumn Carnival Hospitality Packages Handicap (1800m) is first up at 1:50pm (AEDST) where #1 Reservoir is the hot favourite, but we fancy #6 Sables for an upset.

Our other Randwick race tip for this Wednesday is #7 Lamasery and #14 Beaut Colin for the Quinella in Race 7 – the $27,000 Australia Day @ Warwick Farm Handicap (1800m) due to jump at 5:40pm (AEDST).

Best race on the card at Doomben this afternoon is Race 7 – the $13,000 Sky Racing Class 4 Handicap (1350m) at 5:48pm (AEDST) where our pick to win is #10 Vipera Gold despite their wide draw.

  • Ascot (WA)Race 1 jumps at 3:33pm (AEDST) – Bet now at Luxbet
