Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) 2YO Sprint Series Final (1200m)
#2 – Ilovethegame – Bet Now
The Greg Eurell-trained two-year-old was impressive when winning on debut at Sandown. He scored by a length after controlling the speed brilliantly.
It bodes well for a good career and if he can find the front again, he should be tough to get past. He is also helped by drawing barrier eight down the Flemington straight.
Race 2. (12:25) Banjo Paterson Final (2600m)
#3 – Chapada – Bet Now
Chapada has been in good form at Flemington this season, which includes a recent win and two placings.
The Mike Moroney-trained four-year-old has been showing a good turn-of-foot and rising to 2600m holds no fears.
It is an even field and we’re sticking with the form runner.
Race 3. (13:00) Taj Rossi Final (1600m)
#1 – Cherry Tortini – Bet Now
Cherry Tortini has a good future following two impressive wins to start his career. The Patrick Payne-trained gelding won on debut at Sale and backed that up at Flemington last start.
He scored by 1.5 lengths against a good field and although facing some solid types here, he has the most upside.
Expect the market to reflect his ability and his chances of winning.
Race 4. (13:35) Mahogony Challenge Final (2500m)
#1 – Persan – Bet Now
Persan is coming off a tough win at Flemington last start where he defeated a good field by a half-length.
The Maher/Eustace-trained three-year-old is a nice stayer in the making and he does everything right in the run. He settles close to the speed and grinds them into the ground.
That is a good characteristic for a stayer so stick with him.
Race 5. (14:10) Vic Sprint Series Final (1200m)
#7 – Tavisan – Bet Now
Tavisan has been in good form this season and it continued with a third placing at Moonee Valley last time out.
The four-year-old gelding is better around a turn, so the Flemington straight isn’t ideal, but there are no form runners in this field.
He could take advantage of that and post another win.
Race 6. (14:50) Jim Beam Leilani Series Final (1400m)
#8 – River Jewel – Bet Now
River Jewel is finding it tough to win but with consecutive second placings to her name, she must be respected here.
The five-year-old mare by Snitzel has finished in the money in 17 of her 32 starts and she could post a long overdue win.
Punters should get each-way odds.
Race 7. (15:30) Silver Bowl Series Final (1600m)
#3 – Walking Flying – Bet Now
Punters should stick with Walking Flying after she posted back-to-back wins. She ran ninth in the Group 1 Schweppes Oaks before winning at Sale and Sandown.
It is good form coming into a race like this and although she is rising in class, she has been winning her races easily.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and an economical run is likely.
Race 8. (16:05) Winter Championship Final (1600m)
#2 – Heptagon @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Heptagon continues to win so we will continue to support it. The six-year-old is a 10-time winner that has won his last three races.
He is coming off a gritty victory at Flemington and there is every chance he will win again. Rising to the mile holds no fears after winning by three lengths over 1600m two starts back.
The odds are attractive and we are confident of his chances.
Race 9. (16:37) Rivette Series Final (1400m)
#15 – Win Fall – Bet Now
Win Fall’s best form has come at midweek level but the three-year-old filly gets conditions to suit here.
The daughter of Shooting to Win has yet to miss a placing from seven starts, so she is a consistent type and that should be respected.
She gets the inside draw and is well-weighted, so consider.
