Multibet Tips for the Weekend – 17th February 2024

Multi Bets
Royal Randwick plays host to 10 excellent races on 17/02/24.

The biggest names in New South Wales are set to come flooding in at Royal Randwick, with a packed 10-race card pulling in punters and online bookmakers alike.  

With a blend of exciting new horses and some experienced names too, this should be a superb day of racing at Royal Randwick.  

Race 1: Switzerland

The opener at Royal Randwick promises to be a frenetic affair, with some of the best 2-year-olds around shaping up and none look to be better than Switzerland. 
Trained by Chris Waller and steered by Jamie McDonald, Switzerland is a horse that has long been tracked by all levels of Aussie bookmakers and this looks to be the next step in its career progression. 
Shangri La Express does look to be a good offering for Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, and it should be an epic battle, with Switzerland perhaps having too much in the tank.  
Tip: Switzerland to win the race @ $1.95 (TopSport). 

Race 5: Buenos Noches

High quality contests continue to fill this exciting card at Royal Randwick and there is a healthy A$300,000 in the prize pool for the James Squire Expressway Stakes. 
Whilst King of Sparta is one to keep an eye on in the betting, justified favourtism goes to Buenos Noches, a quality operator over the past few seasons. 
Having bagged almost A$2m in career prize money, Buenos Noches certainly knows its way around in races such as this and it looks a good price to get back to winning ways.

Race 6: Semana

In arguably the most closely contested race of the day, all roads are pointing to the Ciaron Maher trained Semana to come out on top. 
Claims can be made for both Olentia and C’est Magique, two horses with serious stock but Semana has made such a splash of late, it just looks to be in the winning groove. 
The 1200m trip should get the very best out of all of the horses in the field here and this should be an unmissable contest, which Semana could just nick. 
Tip: Semana to win the race @ $3.80 (Bet365)
