It’s a huge round of racing with a Royal Randwick card that features four Group One races supported by five Group Three and one Group Two races.
If studying the form is not your go, I have put the full field through my metric looking for the best blend of market value and SuperCoach price and adding a weighting to reflect the different points on offer for Group 1, 2, 3 and non black type races.

I list the top 20 horses below before running through my stable and then rate the jockeys too.
The 20 top-rated horses for the round (Group One runners in bold):
From this list I have selected the following stable (Salary Cap = $2,175,000):
It is impossible to go past Mamaragan in the Group One Inglis. The colt ran third in the Golden Slipper at his last start, is favourite for the race and costs just $50,000 and no doubt will be the most owned horse of the round.
Castelvecchio is a firming favourite for the Doncaster Derby and impressed winning the lead-up Guineas at his last start. Jockey James McDonald has a quality book of rides on Saturday and the hoop rates Castelvecchio his best which is good enough for me to make the horse my captain too. I have also taken Quick Thinker here. He does not score quite as well in my metric as the other horse I liked at the price (Prague in the Inglis) but there is a smaller field in the Derby and that swung my in favour of the Murray Baker horse.
At $500K Nature Strip costs a big chunk of my cap and he meets a star-studded field in the TJ Smith but I’m hoping his price scares off a few potential owners and he was very impressive cruising to victory in a barrier trial hitout ahead of the race beating rivals Redzel and Santa Ana Lane.
Brandenburg is a cheap way into the Group One Doncaster, a race in which the huge field always makes finding a winner tricky. Glen Boss has stuck with the colt and Bossy, the winner of a record seven Doncasters, knows what it takes to win the race.
I couldn’t find any value in the sole Group 2 race on the card so have filled the remainder of my slots with Group 3 runners.
In the Kindergarten Stakes I have doubled up with the favourite Rulership and cheapie Doubtland.
To close my stable it’s a trio of short-priced favourites Colette (Adrian Knox), Reloaded (Carbine Club) and Rubisaki (PJ Bell).
And now to the jockeys:
Don’t over think it here. James McDonald delivered last week and he has the book you want to be on this week too. Lock him in.
