The Wolf’s best gets Nash Rawiller on at Randwick. Here are Wednesday’s racing tips.


Marsannay just got overhauled late by a couple of smart ones last time and can break through for a much-deserved win here at Randwick. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding led them up at a fast tempo and was just collared late by Shaik and Derbari, two lightly raced horses of real promise. Nash Rawiller takes over today and should be able to control the tempo on a track where front runners are suited.

Confidence Level: 4.5/5


Witchel ran a terrific race at her first start for new trainer Sam Burford, getting narrowly beaten in a driving finish with a big margin to third. She was heavily backed and while the punters might have missed out there, she gets her chance here in what looks a very winnable race.

Confidence Level: 3.5/5

Lady of Luxury has been knocking on the door to win a race and gets her chance here at Kensington. First up she ran second in the rich Magic Millions maiden on the Gold Coast, then got a little too far back last time out behind all the way leader Skedaddle. From barrier four she should settle a little closer in the run now and prove very hard to beat.

Toscanini drops back in class from the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes last start at Eagle Farm and finds a suitable contest here. The Maher/Eustace trained gelding ran into a pretty smart one there in The Elanora and there are no stars here. Hugh Bowman should give him every chance from barrier six.
Recommended Price: $4.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

Perfect Illusion looks really good value over the 2400m at Sandown. The Mitch Beer trained gelding continues to race well over these trips and finds a very moderate race here. Damien Lane should press forward and either lead or sit just off the front. 57.5Kg is an attractive weight and the booking of Damien Lane is a plus.
Recommended Price: $4.40
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

Tarcoola Diva dropped back in class for an easy kill first up at Sale and didn’t let her supporters down, winning easily. She spent much of last campaign running in significantly harder company and this looks a perfect race for her second up en route to something even better.
