Newcastle Race 3 Tip #3 Seeingisbelieving TBD
This galloper from the Kim Waugh stable fought on very well last start at Wyong.
On that occasion, he just went down to the red-hot-favourite Madame Markievicz who went on to run a gallant second at Rosehill behind the classy Mandylion.
Since that hit-out, Seeingisbelieving has been in the spelling yard and now makes his return to the races following the eight month break.
His first trial at Wyong indicated that he's returned in good fashion, after he finished impressively in a competitive field over 1000m.
He then backed that up with a stong run in his second trial over the same distance at Gosford.
These two runs will have him fit for this and ready to win.
Newcastle Race 5 Tip #9 Got Your Six TBD
The Waterhouse/Bott runner caught my eye through the trials, after she was able to match motors with Adagirl and Sister Sledge.
Both of those runners have gone on to graduate from maiden grade.
Since then, the filly by Snitzel has been extremely unlucky in all three of her runs after bumping into some smart ones and having to settle for runner up on each occasion.
She was beaten by Trope in her debut run and then Classique Legend second-up. Both of those runners went on to place in Listed grade.
Fasika then got the better of her last start at Warwick Farm, and that filly went on to blitz a BM70 field by 1.5 lengths.
The stable have shown there hand here and with blinkers going on for the first-time, they'll have Got Your Six ready to break her drought.

Randwick Race 8 Tip #10 Dubhe $3.50
This Godolphin runner has been backed off the map in futures markets and will carry the hopes of many punters.
The son of Dubawi is trained by none other than Melbourne Cup winning trainer, Charlie Appleby.
Appleby has set the gelding for the Sydney Cup and has openly said he's kept the gelding's racing to a minumum in order to keep his rating down.
His last start win over the 3200m at Meydan was impressive and while this is his first tilt in Group company, there is no doubt he profiles well for this race.
He's drawn perfectly in barrier four, has the tactical speed to sit close in the run and gets the best in the business to ride in Kerrin McEvoy. Yes!

Randwick Race 4 Tip #5 Cheer Leader $3.00
This Snowden trained 2yo filly was a big winner for us last start at the Valley.
She seems to be getting better with every race and I loved the way she kicked clear to win that day.
Fourth-up here and she will get a lovely run from the gate, before being perfectly positioned to stike in the straight.
Randwick Race 5 Tip #11 Avantage $4.80
She looks like a lovely filly and one with a very bright future.
The Jamie Richards trained filly was super impressive first-up when winning for us and has won her only start second-up.
She’s won seven from eight starts and ran second in her other start.
With natural improvement, she’s going to take some beating here.
