Randwick Kensington hosts an interesting eight race card on Wednesday.
The track is rated a Good 4 as off Wednesday morning, but may be prone to a downgrade with rain predicted throughout the day.
Strong numbers of acceptances on Monday has seen field sizes change drastically on race morning after a host of emergencies came out of betting.
Check out some of our best bets on the day.
Race 1 No. 10 – PIER PRESSURE ($13)
The Kris Lees-trained galloper was great on debut in a strong form race. Pier Pressure was forced to ease back to last from a wide draw, despite jumping well. It has already proven to be a strong from race. Bases Loaded won the race and has subsequently placed in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes, crossing the line with Golden Slipper winner Shinzo, and the Group 3 Pago Pago. August Bloom has also come through the same race and has subsequently run well in Group races as well.
Kris Lees opted to trial Pier Pressure following that debut where he showed good early speed to lead and win the trial. Barrier one should allow Dylan Gibbons to stalk the speed and run a great race.
Race 3 No. 1 – HIMALAISM ($2.80)
Himalaism promised a lot when he was younger, but hasn’t been able to capitalise on that early promise. He has subsequently changed ownership multiple times and was a good thing beat over the track and trip a fortnight ago. His stablemate Buillt won that day as Himalaism failed to get a run until the last 100m. Before that he raced three-wide no cover throughout.
Drawn barrier one, Nash Rawiller sticks aboard and today looks the day for Himalaism.
Race 4 No. 1 – HEADWALL ($2.50)
Emerging sprinter with immense upside. The three-year-old gelding was a good thing beat over the track and trip first-up and went one better last start. He showed explosive acceleration at Warwick Farm to pull away for a dominant win and finds a small field on Wednesday. If the rain does come, he is already proven on wet ground.
The small field should play into his hands and allow him to stalk the leaders throughout the race. Best bet of the day!
Race 7 No. 13 – WATCH THE CLOCK ($21)
In a field where a lot of horses have got large booms on them without really producing on the racetrack, Watch The Clock looks a brilliant bet at $21. The Ron Quinton-trained three-year-old has been great this campaign and will thrive over 1400m on the Randwick Kensington track.
