It seems strange that we’re talking about the Championships day 2 without having one eye on the umbrella but the week delay seems to have done the trick as we head to Randwick with the track looking dead after a dry back end of the week.
Randwick - Race 1 - Converge - $2.35
DIdn’t have a great run in the Pago Pago getting stranded three wide but did manage to finish within 1.3 lengths off Shaquero. Last time out was no match for Salif but they did clear out the rest of the field.
Expected this time out to get the run of the race in front and be left alone with no other front runners / pace makers jumping out in this field. The gap they put on the field last time out suggests he should be getting the job done here.
Back Converge to Win.
Randwick - Race 7 - She’s Ideel - $7
Has been going well this prep without winning. Last time out was 2 lengths of Sir Dragonet who put himself in the picture for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes as a result of that win.
Before that finished 3rd in the Epona and 2nd in the Aspiration. Drops 7kgs here which is massive considering the step up in distance. Should be going close but definitely great e/w value.
Back She’s Ideel e/w
Randwick - Race 9 - Probabeel - $2.50
You have to put a line through her All Star Mile run as the wet track didn’t suit at all despite starting favourite.
Doesn’t need to be at her best for this and the dry conditions suit massively to get her back to winning ways.
Back Probabeel to win.
