What Kensington Races
Where Kensington Track at Royal Randwick – Alison Road, Randwick NSW
When Wednesday, February 16, 2022
First Race 2:20pm AEDT

HorseBetting’s New South Wales form analyst brings you his best bets and free quaddie numbers for Wednesday’s seven-race card on the Kensington track at Royal Randwick. The track is currently a Soft 5, while the rail is out 5m for the entire course. The first race will be underway at 2:20pm AEDT, while the last is scheduled to jump at 5:50pm AEDT.

Kensington Best Bet Of The Day – Cap Estel

Anthony Cummings and Jason Collett combine in the third with promising filly, Cap Estel. The three-year-old daughter of Zoustar won her maiden in fine fashion at this track on February 2 in a 1400m 3YO Maiden, defeating Sing A Love Song by three-tenths of a length. Prior to that, she was unlucky behind Po Kare Kare, who also looks to have plenty of ability. Cap Estel stays at the same track and distance she proved too good at two and a half weeks ago and finds herself in another winnable race. She’s drawn wide again, but she looks pretty versatile, so if she is near last in the run, we won’t be too worried. This filly can go on with it now.

Next Best Bet – Easy Campese

We actually made Cap Estel and Easy Campese our two best bets at the February 2 meeting at this track and they both won well, so we see no reason to drop off. Easy Campese found the front over 1400m at his last start and went through his gears easily to win by nearly four lengths. The John Sargent-trained four-year-old has a really good record with Ellen Hennessy on his back, so we love seeing that she has stuck with him, as her 3kg claim will get the son of Sidestep down to 61.5kg on Wednesday. Drawn barrier one, Easy Campese will rail through to lead and take some real catching as he steps out to 1550m. We are confident he will win again.

Best Value At Kensington – Cape Breton

It’s not often that Chris Waller or James McDonald go through a Sydney Metropolitan meeting without a winner, so we are hoping that they can combine to win the last race of the afternoon when they team up with Cape Breton. The three-year-old gelding won his first two starts as a two-year-old, before going to Eagle Farm and contesting the Group 1 J.J. Atkins at just his third start. The son of Vancouver didn’t really come back in the spring, running last in his first-up run in a Benchmark 78 behind Promise Of Success, before hitting the line well to run seventh in the Listed Springtime Stakes at Flemington on Stakes Day. Waller tipped the gelding out after that run, before sending him to the trials at the end of January where he was given a soft time behind Hilal and Eyes To Eye. His most recent trial was much better, finishing second behind Zarastro. McDonald had a lot to do with Cape Breton early on his career, so it’s good to see him reunite with the gelding on Wednesday. He can be winning.
