Flemington free tips & form
Race 1. (11:50) K.A. Morrison Handicap (2000m)
#7 – One More Try @ $3 – Bet Now
Matt Cumani lines up the four-year-old which is a winner of five from 13 starts with four placings.
The Dane Shadow runner finished second at Caulfield last start and although her last win came in November last year, she drops down to 54kg here.
Craig Williams rides and she looks a good chance.
Race 2. (12:25) Flemington Event Staff BM78 (1200m)
#3 – Sirius Suspect @ $4 – Bet Now
The four-year-old by Wanted hasn’t won this campaign but looks a good chance here against only a moderate field.
His most recent run came at Flemington when fourth and the four-time winner should be able to go close in this.
$4 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 3. (13:00) Byerley Handicap (1800m)
#8 – Presently @ $5 – Bet Now
That was a nice effort from Presently last start and the form out of that race should stack up nicely.
The Ken Keys-trained runner finished off nicely for second behind Parmie and although that track was rain-affected, she has shown form on the dry as well.
With soft conditions expected, the two-year-old filly looks fit enough to handle it better than most.
Race 4. (13:35) Harry White BM90 (2500m)
#3 – Lord Belvedere @ $2.40 – Bet Now
The Maher/Eustace team lines up the import which scored nicely at Cranbourne fresh up before running fourth at Rosehill.
That run behind So You Win was a good performance and he’s only going to improve with more racing under his belt.
Drawing barrier 12 over this distance isn’t going to be a major issue.
Race 5. (14:15) Rising Stars BM90 (1400m)
#8 – El Questro @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Good thing beaten last start after going only the inside of runners. Didn’t have much room to work with but still hit the line and almost won.
The five-year-old mare had won her two prior starts by a combined margin of three lengths and anything close to her best sees her winning this.
Bookmakers are offering each-way odds which should be taken.
Race 6. (14:55) Murray Cox Handicap (1600m)
#9 – Killavally @ $3 – Bet Now
Killavally couldn’t have been more impressive on debut when scoring by eight lengths at Ballarat. That did come on a synthetic track but it was hard not to be impressed.
The son of Ocean Park has the breeding to kick on with it and dropping to 54kg with Craig Williams in the saddle is ideal.
We’re expecting the $3 quote to shorten significantly.
Race 7. (15:35) TAB Trainer’s Trust Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Sylvia’s Mother @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Sylvia’s Mother is a nice type in the making and although disappointing last start, we’re prepared to give her another chance.
The Hawkes-trained filly finished fifth at Rosehill last start but has been prepared with a trial win at Hawkesbury.
Drawing barrier 15 down the Flemington straight isn’t a bad thing and if she brings her a-game, she’ll be awfully tough to hold out.
Race 8. (16:15) VRC Recognition Handicap (1600m)
#8 – Organza @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Punters are pulling their hair out with Organza but the James Cummings-trained runner should win shortly.
She has rattled off six consecutive placings after running second again last week and she’s capable of turning the tables and scoring here.
Getting the inside draw over the 1600m is ideal and with 55kg on her back, we’re expecting another tidy effort at each-way odds.
Race 9. (16:50) Stable Staff Recognition BM90 (1000m)
#11 – Usain Bowler @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Usain Bowler is a capable fresh-up runner which has three wins from 11 starts overall.
The John Sadler-trained four-year-old is coming off runs in Group 1 grade and this is some drop in class. He ran 15th behind Sunlight in the Newmarket Handicap and this isn’t anything close to that grade.
$3.80 is a good price and that should shorten.
