Bivouac (Randwick Race 7 No. 1)
This Exceed And Excel horse has had 16 starts for six wins and five places. He chased hard for 3.4 lengths 6th on a heavy track in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes over 1200m at Randwick on 4 April, then battled away for 3.2 lengths 5th in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes over 1400m at Randwick on 18 April. He is first-up after a 22 week break and has won two lead-up trials. Comes to hand quickly and is a top chance.
Taikomochi (Randwick Race 8 No. 6):
This Snitzel gelding is going well this preparation. He won by 0.8 length in the Premier’s Cup Prelude on a heavy track over 1800m at Randwick on 15 August, then finished 1.5 lengths 4th in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup over 1900m at Rosehill on 29 August. He has won up to 2400m and looks a nice each-way bet.
Athiri (Randwick Race 1 No. 11):
This Lonhro mare trained by James Cummings is the early favourite in this BM 88 Handicap over 1200m. He resumed after 40 weeks for a close 2nd over 1000m om a heavy track at Randwick on 15 August, then got held up and was never really clear when 3.2 lengths 7th over 1100m at Randwick on 5 September. He has only won once in 13 starts and doesn’t look like value.

Our Launceston Horse Racing Tips for Sunday. The track is a Soft 5 and the rail is in the true position. The features are the Gold Sovereign Stakes (race 5) and Tasmanian Oaks over 2100m (race 7). As a general rule, runners who land in the front half of the field are suited at this track, with an advantage to those who find the inside lanes in the straight.

Our Ballarat Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is out 1 metre from the 400m to the winning post and true for the remainder. The drop in class is ideal for the best bet who looks very well placed. Best Bet Altermatum (Ballarat Race 2 No.7) Chased home Hayasugi last start and that form has been franked again today. Looks very well placed in this company and should get a dream run from the draw. $2.70 is over the odds in
