Best Bet Randwick October 3rd

EPSOM HANDICAP BET – WINX (Randwick – Race 7 No. 4): Records are made to be broken and to say that mares cannot win an Epsom Handicap and that it can’t be won second-up is something Chris Waller’s seven-time winner can overcome. History would also tell us that no trainer could dominate the Randwick mile handicaps as Waller has done during the past three seasons, but he has. Genuine pace up front should offset any tempo dramas which can play against a natural backmarker like Winx. The most in-form jockey in Sydney (Hugh Bowman) has the mount and her win in the Theo Marks had to be seen to be believed. If there is a danger it is likely to come from Waller’s other two runners – Silverball and Sadler’s Lake. After all, there are only three runners in this year’s Epsom Handicap that are last start winners – and Waller trains the lot of them.
