Daily Racing Tips – Wednesday, September 29

best bet
Randwick-Kensington: Race 1 (2pm)
No. 6 California Surreal

California Surreal has improved for two starts back this time, and she can break her maiden at Randwick-Kensington today.

The I Am Invincible filly finished midfield in a similar race here when resuming last month, and she flashed late to only just miss at Gosford last time.

Fitter third-up and under James McDonald, this looks her opportunity to strike.

Randwick-Kensington: Race 4 (3:45pm)
No. 2 Daysan

Daysan is seeking a hat-trick of wins when he steps out at Randwick-Kensington this afternoon, and he looks capable of pulling it off.

The Kris Lees-trained import stripped fitter with a credible effort for fourth in Class 1 company at Scone in August and hasn’t looked back, winning each of his last two with something in hand.

This is another rise in class, but he looks to be at peak fitness, and it does look the next logical step for him.

each way
Geelong: Race 7 (4:30pm)
No. 11 Drone Strike

Drone Strike is over the odds ahead of Race 7 at Geelong today ($21 at publish).

The Smart Missile mare has been a good horse for the McArdle stable since making her debut, and she has returned some quality performances and results in far better races than this one.

She returned with a credible effort for third in BM64 company at Moe earlier this month, and I am confident that run will have brought her right on.

Randwick-Kensington: Race 6 (4:55pm)
No. 9 Torun

Torun looks well placed to strike in the penultimate race at Randwick-Kensington this afternoon.

The Medaglia D’oro entire has finished midfield in races at Wyong and here at Randwick-Kensington since resuming, but he did muster an eye-catching turn of foot to finish just a length behind the winner last time.

Fitter third-up and getting slightly further out in trip, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.
