Our Randwick Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. The feature race is the Listed January Cup (race 7).
Zing (Randwick Race 3 No. 4)
This four-year-old Zoustar mare trained by Chris Waller has two wins and two place from nine starts. She resumed from a 21 week spell for 0.2, 0.8 lengths 3rd over 1300m at Warwick Farm on 9 December, then found the front at the 320m but the winner was too strong late for a length 2nd over 1600m at Randwick on 26 December. She goes well in soft and heavy going, is fitter now and should win.
Strawb (Randwick Race 9 No. 8):
This five-year-old Fastnet Rock mare trained by Nathan Doyle at Newcastle has four wins and two places from 10 starts. She was slowly away and had to circle wide when 1.3 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Warwick Farm on 9 December, then came from well back and chased hard for 0.8 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Warwick Farm on 23 December with the best overall sectional of the day at the distance. The extra distance and Randwick straight will suit her racing style and she looks a good each-way bet.
Sacramento (Randwick Race 8 No. 6):
This four-year-old Pierro gelding is the early favourite in this BM 78 Handicap over 1800m. At the end of last campaign he won the Listed VRC St Leger over 2800m at Flemington on 25 April, then resumed for 0.5, 0.2 lengths 3rd over 1800m at Randwick on 26 December. This is a very open race and I am prepared to risk him.

Our Moe Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet is in the opening race of the day and looks well placed. Best Bet Poppin' Champagne (Kyneton Race 1 No.14) Can land up on the speed and prove hard to beat. Likeable claims in this field and looks suited against this bunch. Hard to beat and the price is still worth it. $1.75 Best Each Way Virtucon (Moe Race
Our Pinjarra Scarpside Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments There are 10 races and the rail is in the true position. The feature race is the $150,000 Pinjarra Classic (race 9). Best Bet Silver Back Jack (Pinjarra Scarpside Race 8 No. 1) Silver Back Jack won over 1800m at Ascot 2 starts back, then ran 2nd to a talented mare at his most recent start over 1675m. He'll appreciate the rise in trip and is the leading hope. $3.80
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. Best Bet Wings Of Song (Launceston Race 7 No. 1) Made it 4 wins
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
