Horse Racing Tips – Kensington | Wed 16th February

Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s Kensington meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 7 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 5m entire

ALPHA ONE is yet to race but seems to be a swift colt who led all way to win his trial. Drawn well and in a great 2YO stable. Watch market moves.

DASHING LEGEND has drawn widest but if her trial says anything she will probably ping the lids and daisy-cut her way across the field and lead. Her trial win was very impressive. Could be Willie Pike’s debut win since moving here.

DEEP EXPECTATION resumed from a spell in a strong race and led them up. He was run down late and ran 2nd. Now, should be fitter and will be in this all the way. Is trained here and can run on.


MONEY FROM THE SKY is first-up but has wheels. Placed twice already this grade. Trialled impressively. Watch market.

DRESDEN races for just the 2nd time here. Sat behind the pace then made a charge when 2nd at Wyong. Fitter now and bigger track should suit.  Big danger.

STRAY is in this. Was heavily backed overnight.


This looks a nice race for CAFE ROYAL. She is 3rd up here and looks back in fine form. Down in grade following an ordinary effort last start and gets a 3kg allowance which makes her well weighted here.

SCORE has been transferred from Melbourne to Sydney and is now with Annabel Neasham. Has wheels, is very fit and should win this. Big show.

CRYSTAL WATERS is hunting down her 3rd straight win here. Is very honest and will be in the finish.


Interesting race. EASY CAMPESE can carry weight and he showed that last start when at this track, in this very grade over 1400m, he led and bolted away to win by nearly 4 lengths. Extra trip and up 2kg today makes it harder but he is flying.

If NARVAEZ can take a sit behind Easy Campese who should lead, he can finish hard. Is trained here, performs at this level and drawn to be one off at best. Is very fit as he’s 3rd up now.

BEDFORD SQUARE is just so honest and consistent and that carries a runner a long way in this business. Will be boxing on gamely here too.


These are tough races. YUKON looks well in here being 3rd up and fit enough to dash late. Willie Pike has the mount but has drawn wide so probably drops out and runs on. Is very capable now fit.

GALAXY BELLE is up in class here but she has that knack of finding the line. Scored by 4 lengths in easier Newcastle race and has won in the city at this trip previously. Chance here.

SOUND OF CANNONS resumes here. But, he is a winner while fresh so those two trials under his belt will help him.  Looks to be happy in Australia and looms large.



DUCHESS is trained here and that’s a big help. She is now 3rd up and should ping the lids and lead these. If left alone, she will kick and they won’t catch her.

STOICAL is potent first-up and resumes here. Is fast enough to stick with Duchess and also being trained here helps. Should charge late.

WAY TO THE STARS has won two of only three career runs. Is up in class here but is also a winner so have in your numbers.


OLYMPIC LEGEND can improve on fading last place in a stronger race last start. Was on speed and just folded. Is fitter now and the subsequent two trials which were good say he is fit enough today. Is trained here.

MAJOR ARTIE should run well. Is resuming but whenever Gai and Adrian throw Nash Rawiller on, there is a reason. Is pretty honest.

CAPE BRETON resumes here but was showing stakes level talent when last in work. Has trialled twice and looks ready to pounce. Good race.
