Royal Randwick Racing Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips for 15.02.2020

A bumper ten race card which includes four group events will be staged at Royal Randwick in Sydney this Saturday.

The feature comes in Race 8 with the running of the $250,000 Group 2 Apollo Stakes.

Best Randwick Bet: Race 3 No. 1 - God Of Thunder @ 2.70

This gelding is returning from a spell and is very well placed in this benchmark event.

In a consistent last campaign which finished in a half length defeat via the Group Two Caulfield Sprint as favourite, he won comfortably via his only start on heavy ground which was early in the campaign.

He should've beaten Humma Mumma prior to that win who went straight to a listed race to win again and is a lightweight chance in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate next Saturday.

Resuming off a terrific trial win in very sharp time at Rosehill on January 28, God Of Thunder has strong claims as the best bet at Randwick.

Best Randwick Value Bet: Race 9 No. 5 - Pohutukawa @ 6.50

A Godolphin mare that comes right into the six furlong nature of the 2020 Triscay Stakes with the wet conditions.

A versatile four-year-old, she arguably should've won when launching her 2019 autumn campaign via the Light Fingers Stakes in a slashing performance when storming home late for third.

Barrier twelve could very well be an advantage late in the day on this testing circuit and it does suit her pattern regardless where she'll look to chime in late under jockey Tommy Berry.

Pohutukawa's form around two smart gallopers in Kolding and Invincibella reads superbly for this event against the mares where she represents good value in the current markets.
