Small Randwick Fields Stacked With Quality
Meanwhile, while it might not contribute to ideal betting turnover, the across the board relatively small fields for Saturday's Gr1 Randwick Guineas Day have thrown up some beautiful tactical battles between key rivals. The biggest field for any of the 9 races on the card is 13 (Randwick Guineas & Wenona Girl Handicap), dropping down to 6 for the Gr2 Todman Stakes which sees Golden Slipper favourite Capitalist up against Astern, Tessera, Defcon and Weatherly, plus the beautifully bred debut winner Kiss And Make Up (Redoute's Choice-Fashions Afield) in which Gai Waterhouse shares ownership with John Singleton and others. Likewise, the Gr1 Canterbury Stakes field of 7 is low in numbers, but certainly not quality: Criterion, Kermadec, Our Boy Malachi, First Seal, Ecuador, Happy Clapper and Holler will all find betting support.
