Flemington Rapid Racing Day Tips
Race 1. (16:00) Firstly Sprint 0MW (1000m)
#4 – Bombay Rocket @ $3.10 – Bet Now
The Anthony Freedman-trained filly ran well on debut when second at Flemington before disappointing last time out.
Form behind A Beautiful Night has stacked up wonderfully since and she didn’t get a good start at Caulfield last start, so we’re prepared to forgive that run.
Punters are getting good odds for the win and we’re expecting some late money to come her way on race day.
Race 2. (16:30) Maxcap Dash BM64 (1200m)
#2 – Mnementh @ $18 – Bet Now
The Mitchell Beer-trained gelding is running at value odds here and punters could cash in.
He is coming out of an easier grade but he scored nicely by a half-length and there are no superstars in this race.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and the $18 is well over the odds here.
Race 3. (17:00) Tick Homes BM64 Plate (1000m)
#2 – Excess Funds @ $3.40 – Bet Now
The three-year-old colt is better than average and he showed that when winning at Sandown last year.
He scored by 2.3 lengths before taking on open-class company in four runs since. Those came behind the likes of Bivouac and Anaheed, which is Group 1 form.
That has to stack up beautifully for this race and the $3.40 won’t last long. He has already been backed in from an opening quote of $3.60.
Race 4. (17:30) JMK Sprint BM70 (1000m)
#5 – Sweet Rockette @ $6 – Bet Now
Michelle Payne lines up the four-year-old mare that scored on debut at Moonee Valley. She defeated a handy field before running fourth behind Smart Melody and second behind Meryl.
She didn’t fire when running 13th at Sandown last start but she has been freshened up with four trials and she’s clearly better than that.
Punters have specked her at each-way odds and we’re expecting a tidy effort.
Race 5. (18:00) QMS BM78 Sprint (1200m)
#3 – Chicago Cub @ $6.50 – Bet Now
He’s not the most consistent type running but Chicago Cub is always a winning threat.
Trained by Mike Moroney, the four-year-old owns four wins from 11 starts and that demands attention straight off the bat.
He finished fourth at Flemington last start in a higher-graded race and we’re surprised at the value odds on offer.
Take the $6.50 available with bookmakers.
Race 6. (18:30) Eynesbury BM64 Plate (1100m)
#5 – Scipio @ $3.60 – Bet Now
Scipio has rattled off consecutive wins at Cranbourne and Werribee, so he has good winning claims here.
The Danny O’Brien-trained son of All Too Hard scored as the odds-on favourite last start and punters are getting much better odds this time around.
Drawing barrier one is going to see him land on the speed and punters should expect a similar result to his last couple of starts.
Race 7. (19:00) Resimax Jockey Challenge BM70 (1200m)
#3 – Licko’paint @ $5 – Bet Now
The Lindsay Park-trained mare scored impressive when fresh this campaign. She won by two lengths at Moonee Valley and that came against the likes of The Closer.
She was beaten at her last two starts but she showed good barrier speed in both. Getting the inside draw is ideal and she won’t have to do much work to find the lead.
Punters are getting good odds.
