It’s a good Wednesday of racing today with meetings at both Randwick and Sandwon to get us over the midweek hump.
Billy Bestford highlights his best bets throughout the day.
Horse Racing Tips: Wednesday, February 2nd
Randwick Race 1
(2) Devil's Throat was resuming as a gelding last start when taking on a very handy race on the Gold Coast. He was smashed in betting that day and sustained a big wide run to only just miss the winner. It was an enormous effort and he only needs to hold that form here in a much easier race to be winning. There's no flash odds about him but he just looks to get every chance to break through today.
Randwick Race 2
(2) Himalaism started favourite in a strong Saturday 2yo race which has produced a couple of handy winners out of it. Looks very well placed back in this sort of maiden and maps for a nice run throughout with McDonald sticking for the ride.
Sandown Race 2
(5) Healing Game was good on debut and looked like he would benefit from the run. Really started getting through the gears late after finding a bit of trouble in running. I think Jamie Kah jumping on is a big positive and he should see every chance to break his maiden today.
Sandown Race 3
(2) Murrambi Express looks ready to break through now following a couple of runner up finishes. He is beginning to become costly to follow but 4th up now from a low draw and a much smaller field should see him get every chance to notch up another win today. Looks ready to step to 1400m.

Randwick Race 6
Keen to back (1) Easy Campese who was very good over a trip short of his best. Keen to see him getting to 1400m where he's won 2 from 4 and getting onto the Kenso track is also a plus. Gets a good claim to offset the top weight and I think he will be very tough to run down here.
