Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Sofitel Next Generation Final (1200m)
#1 – Mennea – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old comes off an impressive debut win at Donald and we think he could kick on with the job.
Trained by the Maher/Eustace team, the son of Sebring had plenty of betting support and it should be the case once again on Saturday.
Drawing the rails isn’t ideal, but he could hug the rail and kick away.
Race 2. (12:25) Tab Silver Bowl Series Final (1600m)
#5 – Next Step Berrima – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Shea Eden-trained three-year-old is a two-time winner that is better than what he showed last time out when sixth at Caulfield.
He looked excellent when winning at Pakenham and Sale, so that form should stack up nicely for this contest and drawing barrier three is ideal.
It’s another good ride for Mark Zahra and he could start the day off well.
Race 3. (13:00) Lexus B Paterson Series Final (2600m)
#2 – Grand Promenade – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old kicked away for an easy four-length win at Flemington last start, so that win ranks highly against this field.
He is now a six-time winner from 15 starts and with a win and a placing on this track, the long straight suits him nicely.
Barrier two helps and Jamie Kah is riding in good form.
Race 4. (13:35) Kennedy Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m)
#1 – Royalzel – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sydney form often stacks up best in Melbourne and Royalzel comes off a tidy victory in heavy conditions at Rosehill.
The Gary Portelli-trained colt looks to have a bright future and rising in distance is another positive for the sun of Snitzel.
Craig Williams rides and he should be tough to hold out.
Race 5. (14:15) MSS Security Rivette Final (1400m)
#7 – Comica – Bet @ Sportsbet
Comica already owns two wins from four starts and although yet to face this level of opposition, she is a nice filly in the making.
The three-year-old daughter of Magnus comes off a heavy track win at Sandown and conditions will be in the soft range on Saturday.
Her only run at Flemington resulted in a fifth, so she wasn’t far away. Keep her safe.
Race 6. (14:55) Seppelt Wines Winter Championship (1600m)
#2 – Dice Roll @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dice Roll comes off three consecutive victories since arriving in Australia from Hong Kong and he looks above average.
The son of Showcasing hit the line nicely to score last start and the professional six-year-old could remain unbeaten down under.
55.5kg is ideal and he has a nice future at this level.
Race 7. (15:30) G.H. Mumm Mahogany Challenge Final (2500m)
#3 – Token Spirit – Bet @ Sportsbet
Token Spirit was able to turn around some moderate form with a win at Sandown, and he’s capable of producing two on the bounce.
He had been facing tough fields at Flemington, where he has yet to place from four starts. However, there are no superstars in this field and having Jamie Kah in the saddle helps.
We’re expecting another tidy run.
Race 8. (16:05) Furphy All Victorian Sprint Series (1200m)
#8 – Hi Stranger @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hi Stranger comes off a second placing at Flemington where he finished second behind The Astrologist.
The four-year-old is a five-time winner from 26 starts, and although he doesn’t win as often as he should, he rarely runs a bad race.
He’s capable of closing the gap on the favourite and he has been met with support in betting markets.
Race 9. (16:35) TCL Leilani Series Final (1400m)
#13 – Lindhout – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lindhout has yet to win from four attempts this preparation, but it’s only a matter of time before she crosses the line first.
The four-year-old daughter of Time for War comes off a second placing on this track and staying at 54kg gives her every chance of success.
Craig Newitt rides and Froggy could see her home.
