Kensington Race 1 Tips | 11:40 AM | 1400m

Top Tip – Giovanna Run

Jockey: Tommy Berry | Trainer: Chris Waller

The Waller stable should start off the day with a winner after the filly’s fast finishing 2nd to Obvious Step 1150m Kensington heavy track July 1. That was first-up since Boxing Day and should be a major player here. Rates highly.

Place Tip – Montefelia

Jockey: Louise Day | Trainer: David Payne

Resuming but comes into this off two barrier trials. Not raced since 4.6 length 4th Holyfield 1400m Rosehill Group 3 Ballilieu in March. Impressive Newcastle winner on debut three weeks earlier. Big threat.

Top 4 Tip – Stolen Glance

Jockey: Tin Clarke | Trainer: Gwenda Markwell

Came from last on turn when resumed with eye catching 2.3 length 6th Bowery Breeze 1200m Kembla Grange soft track last month. Sure to take a lot of benefit from that run and expect her to be doing best work late. Eachway.

Kensington Race 2 Tips | 12:15 PM | 1100m

Top Tip – Foxie La Belle

Jockey: Sam Clipperton | Trainer: Terry Robinson

Liked her effort two runs back when ran on late for length 3rd Laughing Or Crying 1400m Kensington Highway in May. Since got too far back but wasn’t far away at finish when 3.8 length 11th Leo 1000m Randwick Highway heavy track July 4. Will give this a big shake.

Place Tip – Mr Magical

Jockey: Brodie Loy | Trainer: Jamie Stewart

Unbeaten son of Magic Albert who won 1000m Sapphire Coast Maiden on debut February 2 then sat off speed scoring easy 2.3 length win over Proud Mia 1000m Nowra last month. Up in class but cannot be discarded. Eachway.

Top 4 Tip – Skara Brae

Jockey: Jason Collett | Trainer: Steve Jones

In good form and can handle these conditions. Won 900m Wellington Maiden and 900 Scone Class 1 before stormed home from near last 400 metres out when 0.4 length 3rd Leo 1000m Randwick heavy track July 4. Badly drawn but is a backmarker. One of the chances.

Kensington Race 3 Tips | 12:50 PM | 1100m

Top Tip – Tailleur

Jockey: Jason Collet | Trainer: James Cummings

Quality Godolphin filly unbeaten in two starts. Won 1100m Gosford Maiden on debut back in January then sent out fav when resumed with nose win over Switched 1100m Randwick heavy track July 4. Has to overcome second-up hoodoo but looks big chance.

Place Tip – Emeralds

Jockey: Louise Day | Trainer: John Sargent

Has been racing in much better class of late. Has trialled twice since latest 2.7 length 7th Nettoyer 1600m Group 3 Aspiration Randwick soft track March 7. Sound runs before in Group company and looks a big show first run back from spell. One of the chances.

Top 4 Tip – Matowatakpe

Jockey: Adam Hyeronimus | Trainer: Bjorn Baker

Consistent with win,two placing only three runs this preparation. Placed Hawkesbury and Kembla Grange last month before came to town beating Bowery Breeze by 2.3 lengths 1300m Warwick Farm July 8. Yet to run these conditions but looks to have strong claims again.

Kensington Race 4 Tips | 1:25 PM | 1800m

Top Tip – Kiss The Bride

Jockey: Nash Rawiller | Trainer: Bjorn Baker

Big improver after tailed off last first-up behind Ballet Master 1400m Randwick heavy track last month when solid finishing 0.4 length 3rd Agassi 1600m Randwick heavy track July 4. Has won this trip and looks ideally suited. Hard to toss.

Place Tip – Orcein

Jockey: Brenton Avdulla | Trainer: Chris Waller

Rarely runs a bad race and has win,two placings past four. Liked his win when sat off the speed beating Monegal by half a length 1500m Rosehill soft track two runs back. Since ran on well beaten length 2nd by Edison 1500m Rosehill heavy track last week. Backing-up here could be a concern. Market best guide.

Top 4 Tip – Savigne

Jockey: Jason Collett | Trainer: Chris Waller

Won in these conditions two runs back beating Galahad’s Quest by 1.8 lengths 1550m Canterbury heavy track June 24. Since went down half a length when 2nd Picaro 1800m Kensington heavy track July 1. Must be considered.

Top Tip – Matowi

Jockey: Brenton Avdulla | Trainer: Chris Waller

Proved too strong beating High Opinion by 0.3 lengths 1800m Randwick heavy track last time July 4. Had similar conditions before when 3.1 length 5th Attention Run 1800m Rosehill heavy track June 13. Has win and three placings from five this trip. Go well.

Place Tip – Toryjoy

Jockey: Kathy O’Hara | Trainer: Chris Waller

Looked to have every hope 6.2 length 8th Trumbull 1350m Listed Civic Stakes Rosehill two runs back then sharp improver latest half length 3rd High Opinion 1800m Randwick heavy track two weeks ago. Maps to sit off speed but won’t be surprised if leads again. Likely to figure in finish.

Top 4 Tip – Frankely Awesome

Jockey: Louise Day | Trainer: Kris Lees

Coming off a strong 0.8 length win over Sixties Groove 2000m Listed McKell Cup Rosehill last month. Two runs back had every hope when 3.9 length 6th Attention Run 1800m Rosehill heavy track. Claim for Louise Day improves her chances. Eachway.

Kensington Race 6 Tips | 2:40 PM | 1400m

Top Tip – Handspun

Jockey: Tommy Berry | Trainer: James Cummings

Struck best form third run from spell with 2.3 length win over Cristal Breeze 1300m Randwick heavy track two weeks ago. Placed in heavy going two previous runs at Rosehill and looks strong chance to score again.

Place Tip – Man Of Peace

Jockey: Louise Day | Trainer: Matthew Dale

Returning here after led and caught late for half length 2nd Danon Roman 1620m Flemington Prov Plate June 20. Won over 1400 metres Randwick heavy track three runs back and claim is a big plus. Has good record this trip. Rates highly.

Top 4 Tip – The Kingdom Come

Jockey: Nash Rawiller | Trainer: John Thompson

Back here after three Qld runs which included fast finishing nose win over subsequent winner Elixir 1300m Eagle Farm June 13. Did best work near line since when 2.5 length 3rd Soxagon 1350m Doomben June 27. Likes it soft but failed only two runs in heavy. Eachway.

Kensington Race 7 Tips | 3:20 PM | 1000m

Top Tip – Spaceboy

Jockey: Kathy O’Hara | Trainer: Gary Portelli

Chasing hat-trick and O’Hara has been aboard both recent wins. Led for easy 4.6 length win over Titus 1100m Wyong two runs back then led beating Fanciful Dream by 2.3 lengths 1000m Randwick heavy track two weeks ago. Hard to catch.

Place Tip – Witherspoon

Jockey: Louise Day | Trainer: Kris Lees

Another in line for a hat-trick but has an awkward gate. Led all the way in 1000m Randwick win on heavy track two runs back then repeated tactics beating Zaniah by 0.4 lengths 1000m Randwick heavy track June 20. Sure to fight out the finish.

Top 4 Tip – Rosina Kojonup

Jockey: Rachel King | Trainer: Bjorn Baker

Hasn’t raced for over a year but won recent barriers trials at Randwick and Warwick Farm. Well-bred mare who last appeared when led and tired for 3.4 lengths 5th Military Zone December 2018. Market a sound guide.

Kensington Race 8 Tips | 4:00 PM | 1400m

Top Tip – Threeood

Jockey: Rachel King | Trainer: Joe Pride

Won well first-up 1300m Warwick Farm heavy track June 8 then had no luck failing 1200m Randwick heavy track two runs back. Showed she wasn’t far off another win latest when boxed on for 0.8 length 2nd Vitesse 1400m Randwick heavy track two weeks ago. Gets her chance this time.

Place Tip – Strawb

Jockey: Mitchell Bell | Trainer: Nathan Doyle

Comes to city off two impressive provincial wins. Started fav and looked beaten before turn when powered home to down Kateru 1400m Newcastle last month then raced handier beating Holy Reign by 3.3 lengths 1400m Newcastle July 4. Could show up.

Top 4 Tip – Madam Legend

Jockey: Cejay Graham | Trainer: Les Bridge

Has to be taken on trust first time on heavy ground and market a guide. Led all the way beating I Am A Country Boy by 2.7 lengths 14000m Newcastle last run. Has a good record of 3 wins from seven and coming off narrow Randwick barrier trial win on heavy ground last week. Consider.

Kensington Race 9 Tips | 4:440 PM | 1550m

Top Tip – Le Gai Soleil

Jockey: Rachel King | Trainer: John O’Shea

Smart filly drawn well to make it four straight. Completed hat-trick with fast finishing 3 length win over Galahad’s Quest 1550m Kensington heavy track at start of the month. Looks to have a bright future and should go through the grades. Big threat.

Place Tip – Adana

Jockey: Sam Clipperton | Trainer: Chris Waller

Made up a ton of ground when 3.4 length 4th Agassi 1600m Randwick heavy track two runs back then hit line strongly when 0.2 length 2nd Agassi 1600m Randwick heavy track two weeks ago. Capable type who should be in the money again.

Top 4 Tip – Boomtown Rat

Jockey: Adam Hyeronimus | Trainer: Bjorn Baker

Returned to top form third run from break beating Travancore by 0.2 lengths 1600m Warwick Farm July 8. Previous two runs from break were fair but could be worth following now he’s back in form. Looks good eachway value.
