Daily Racing Tips – Wednesday, May 18

Randwick-Kensington: Race 3 (1:25pm)
No. 2 Podium

Podium takes winning form into the third at Randwick-Kensington today, and this looks a great opportunity for him to begin his rise through the grades.

The Medaglia D’Oro gelding placed in all three starts during his debut prep, and he made an ideal return with an easy win at Newcastle last month.

With any improvement, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

best bet
Randwick-Kensington: Race 5 (2:35pm)
No. 3 Niffler

Niffler is another resuming galloper with live claims on winning in Sydney this afternoon.

The Chris Waller-trained mare hasn’t missed placing in six previous trips to the races, winning three times and finding form around some talented horses in Saturday metro company.

This looks the perfect campaign launchpad for her, the booking of James McDonald only enhances her claims, and she is my best bet of the day.

each way
Randwick-Kensington: Race 7 (3:45pm)
No. 12 Norman

Norman looks to have plenty of ability, and he rates as a winning chance in the penultimate race at Randwick-Kensington today, at a nice price ($8 at publish).

The Exceed And Excel gelding stamped himself as one to watch with a smart win on debut at Newcastle, and he has been far from disgraced in a couple of tougher races since.

He steps out this week in peak order, he gets into the race well under the conditions, and we can have an each-way play at the price.

Randwick-Kensington: Race 8 (4:20pm)
No. 2 Warrior Hero

Warrior Hero is the one that I want to be with in the last at Randwick-Kensington.

The Michael Freedman-trained gelding raced consistently around some good horses last time in, and completed a bullish performance and win in BM72 company at Canterbury when resuming this time.

He’ll only improve for that effort and can win again.
