RANDWICK hasn't looked like winning so far but has been competing in better company than this, hence a handicap mark of 90. He's taken to come good today given Potent Embrace disappointed last time having run well on her debut at Newcastle. Godolphin run a couple of newcomers with the half-brother to five winners, Absolute Sway, preferred to Mythical Madness. Perfect Light is expected to improve form her latest effort at Newmarket and is another to consider in a competitive opener.
