|Warwick Farm Racecourse – Governor Macquarie Dr, Warwick Farm NSW 2170
|Wednesday, April 27, 2022
Metropolitan racing in New South Wales heads to Warwick Farm on Wednesday afternoon for six races. The track is rated a Heavy 10 and the rail is out 3m for the entire course, which is likely to favour on-speed horses. HorseBetting’s New South Wales racing analyst presents you with his best bets, value bet and quaddie numbers for the meeting, which is scheduled to begin at 2:00pm AEST.
Warwick Farm Best Bet – London
Chris Waller saddles up four two-year-olds in the second race on the program, and of those four, London is the only one with race experience. The son of Capitalist ran fourth to Fireburn on debut where he was beaten 2.5 lengths over 1150m on the Kensington track, while Revolutionary Miss finished second which looks the right form reference for this. Waller hasn’t nominated any jockey four either of his runners yet, but James McDonald was aboard this colt in his most recent trial, so we hope to see him stick. The outside barrier is a touch awkward and the Heavy 10 is a bit of an unknown, but the horse looks smart enough to overcome those queries and get the job done on Wednesday at his second race start.
Race 2 –
2yo Colt | T: Chris Waller | J: (58kg)
Warwick Farm Next Best – Coal Crusher
Coal Crusher has made a terrific start to his racing career, winning five of his nine starts and finishing second in three other races, so he has to come into this race with plenty of respect. The Joseph Pride-trained four-year-old was good first-up when winning at Wyong by three-quarters of a length under a big weight of 61.5kg, so he should only improve now second-up and down to 60kg. Glyn Schofield has built a strong partnership with the son of Turffontein, riding him twice on race day for two wins. He will get a nice run from barrier nine and should take plenty of beating on a heavy track.
Race 6 –
4yo Gelding | T: Joseph Pride | J: Glyn Schofield (60kg)
Warwick Farm Best Value – Dick Whittington
Matthew Smith and Hugh Bowman combine in the staying event of the afternoon with five-year-old gelding Dick Whittington. The son of War Command is yet to place in either of his five starts in Australia, however the best run he has produced was a fourth at Group 3 level during the spring over 2400m behind Entente. First-up at Hawkesbury he never got into the race over 1500m, but he made up so good headway late to suggest that he was crying out for further. On Wednesday, Smith has stepped him right out to 2130m which is going to suit him down to the ground, given he won on debut in France over this distance by a big margin. From the inside barrier, Bowman can settle handier in the smaller field and give this gelding every chance of running into the numbers.
