Randwick Kensington Race 1 Tip #5 Gumshoe $6.00
Trialled beautifully against Shelley Beach Road and Stilettoed Vixen, before heading to the races for the first time and running into a galloper with a fitness edge.
He ran through the line well on that occasion, which suggests the 1300m will suit.
The gelding will also benefit from a light weight, with Robbie Dolan claiming 3kg, his mount will go around with 50kg.
Although he is out of grade, he's weighted accordingly and is a genuine winning hope at a good odds.
Randwick Kensington Race 7 Tip #4 Schubert $8.00
It will pay to forget his last start when he didn’t have much luck.
The gelding by Lonhro is well suited on a Soft surface, with one win and a placing from three starts.
Drawn barrier five, jockey Tim Clark will afford him the soft run behind the leader's back, and if he produces his best he'll go close to winning.

Randwick Kensington Race 2 Tip #4 Brazilica $2.50
This un-raced three-year-old from the Chris Waller stable has impressed in two trials to date.
At her most recent trial, she sat just off the speed before peeling off heels and running powerfully through the line.
The third place-getter from that trial was Vedder, who ran a strong second placing on debut, which franks the trial.
Drawn barrier two in a small field, jockey Hugh Bowman will have plenty of options in the run and if this girl by Redoute's Choice can repeat her trial form, she'll prove hard to beat.
Randwick Kensington Race 4 Tip #10 Ulusaba $4.60
Led them up and showed plenty, in what was a dominant display over the Wyong 1600m only days ago.
This gelding from the Waterhouse/Bott yard gets back to his home track and looks to be again well suited on a Soft track.
Expect jockey Adam Hyeronimus to push forward and hold the lead from barrier one.
Now into his third-up run, Ulusaba will be rock hard fit and should prove hard to chase down.

Caulfield Race 4 Tip #3 Eclair Calling $3.90
He has had a great prep so far, and his recent win here at the track was a beauty.
On that occassion he hit the front at the 100m mark and finished strongly through the line.
The step-up in journey looks ideal. Expect him to be on the speed with the fitness edge, which will see him fight out the finish.
Caulfield Race 7 Tip #3 Trekking $3.25
Absolutely flying this prep, with three wins and a second.
He’s a last start winner at this track and has been in the top three, five times from seven starts over the distance.
He should be on the leader's back as they straighten and i’m expecting him to be too strong again late.
