Randwick Race 8: Tab Rewards Royal Randwick BM100 1400m

17/04/2015: Tipping Strawberry Boy on an each way basis to take out the last race of the Randwick Carnival. Strawberry Boy has imposing 1st up figures winning 4 from 6 with placing also, he is perfectly drawn in gate 5 to assume his usual front running role and should take some getting past at the business end. Has been placed 5 times at Group 2 and 3 level and looks well graded in this BM 100. Burbero is race hardened and is mixing distances with success. Drops back to 1400m here but has been freshened for the task and handles soft going. Medcaut was an easy last start winner in lesser grade and can certainly measure up here. Has won over this distance but the going may be a concern if worse than good. Ecuador is very lightly raced for a 5yo but hasn't raced for a lengthy 391 days. Has displayed plenty of potential and had the benefit of 4 recent barrier trials to gain fitness for return. Watch for market moves with this one.

Front Runners (7) Ecuador, (5) Strawberry Boy, (4) Laohu.

PACE COMMENTS Another race with plenty of speed up front which should result in a strong overall tempo. The 3 assessed leaders here are all well drawn so it could be really on in the first sectional. Favourite Medcaut is drawn a little wide in 10 and will look to drop in behind the leading trio. Burbero will be strongly fancied and in all likelihood allowed to drop out from his wide gate but will be suited by the speed on up front.
