Saturday Racing Tips – August 20, 2022

Saturday Racing Tips - March 26, 2022

The following are Australian horse racing tips for Saturday, August 20, 2022. The focus is on the racecards at Moonee Valley and Randwick. The highlight of the day is the Group 1 Winx Stakes (Race 8) at Randwick.

Best Bets denote runners that stand out as the single best selection for their race. Strong Bets denote runners that are strong selections, but the separation between them and next best selection isn’t as strong. It’s not uncommon for us to recommend two Strong Selections for the same race. Quinella and Trifecta recommendations are made for races with multiple key chances.

This article will be updated leading up to the race day.
