The weather in Sydney is partly cloudy but without any rain on the radar the current Good (4) Randwick track rating looks set to stay across a great afternoon’s racing.

Randwick racing gets underway with the Listed $140,000 Fireball Stakes (1100m) for the three-year-olds at 12:40pm (AEDT).

The nine-race card comes to a close at 5:40pm (AEDT) with the fillies and mares facing off in the Group 3 $160,000 Aspiration Quality (1600m) where the Bjorn Baker-trained She’s Ideel ($4.50 @ Ladbrokes.com.au) leads markets.

There is early Group racing action on the card with the 2021 Golden Slipper lead-ups.

It’s the boys’ turn first with the Group 2 $300,000 Todman Stakes (1200m) running as Race 2 and the field is down to seven with Rocket Tiger (6) and Solar Winds (9) out.

The two-year-old fillies are up next in Race 3 with all 12 original acceptors still in the mix for the Group 2 $300,000 Reisling Stakes (1200m) led in betting by Matthew Dale’s Black Opal Preview winner from Canberra Pretty Woman ($4.60).

One of the meeting’s big support races is the Group 2 $500,000 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at 3:05pm (AEDT) with Chris Waller’s reigning Australian Horse of the Year Nature Strip ($1.65) the one to beat at an odds-on quote in a small field of eight.

The first of the two elite levels and the marquee event is set to run as Race 7 with the Group 1 $1 million Randwick Guineas (1600m) scheduled to jump at 4:25pm (AEDT).

The 2021 Randwick Guineas field features 13 promising three-year-olds and markets are dominated by the undefeated Kiwi Aegon ($2.20) coming off that impressive Group 2 Hobartville Stakes victory over the locals.

There are two scratchings from the other Group 1 feature race at Randwick today, the $500,000 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) down to nine with Prague (10) out earlier in the week and news the Godolphin-raced Kementari (9) would not defend his title being withdrawn on vet’s advice.

See below for the full Randwick race times and Sydney scratchings for Saturday before heading to Ladbrokes.com.au for all the best racing odds and offers.
