VRC Sprint tips

Redzel
Redzel looks hard to beat in the VRC Sprint.

This race looks perfectly set up for defending champion Redzel.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding is following the same path he did last campaign after taking out The Everest before resting for this race. It has been 28 days since Redzel has raced but the Snowden’s have kept him up to task with a trial at Rosehill.

Redzel won’t be able to dictate terms from the front like he did in The Everest but we still expect him to deliver a knock out blow in the final Group 1 sprint of the spring. Sydney Stakes winner Pierata ($6.50 at BetEasy) the next best in a race stacked with talent.

Redzel is at $5 via Ladbrokes to win the VRC Sprint

Mackinnon Stakes tips

Blair House (IRE) ridden by James Doyle (GB) heads to the barriers before the Ladbrokes Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse on October 13, 2018 in Caulfield, Australia. (George Salpigtidis/Racing Photos)

This race looks poised for Godolphin runner Blair House.

The boy in blue has had a good run so far in Australia and only narrowly went down to stablemate Benbatl in the Caulfield Stakes. Such is the confidence of Godolphin heading into this one, UK head trainer Charlie Appleby declared the field has Blair House “to beat on Saturday.”

The odds look skinny, but Blair House is the hardest to beat. The Lloyd Williams-owned Latrobe looks the next best in a race that the owner earmarked his elect for.

Blair House is at $2.05 to win at Sportsbet the Mackinnon Stakes
