Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Murray Cox Quality (2540m)
#7 – Saracen Knight @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Danny O’Brien lines up the seven-year-old who improved to finish fourth at Flemington last time out.
The son of Camelot is looking to score an overdue win and carrying 53kg on his back only helps his chances.
He also gets the inside draw and punters get each-way odds.
Race 2. (12:25) Country Racing Victoria BM78 (1000m)
#8 – Grand Pope @ $3 – Bet @ Neds
Most of the early money has come for Grand Pope, who finished third at Flemington last start and he could improve on that position.
The son of More than Ready owns a win and a placing from four starts on the track and carrying 55.5kg should see him right in the mix.
We’re not surprised by the money coming his way.
Race 3. (13:00) Rod Johnson Handicap (1420m)
#1 – Atlantis Tycoon @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
Atlantis Tycoon scored an upset win at Caulfield on debut and it was a smart performance from the two-year-old.
The son of Written Tycoon was wide and back over 1200m and it’s not an easy track to make up ground on the field.
Punters have to take shorter odds here but they’re worth snapping up.
Race 4. (13:35) Bruce Gadsden BM90 (1420m)
#2 – Quintello @ $3.40 – Bet @ Neds
Quintello kicked off her campaign with consecutive wins before running second at Rosehill behind Night of Power.
The five-year-old mare is a four-time winner from nine starts and she should enjoy running at Flemington for the first time.
1.5kg comes off her back and she’s worth backing.
Race 5. (14:10) A. R. Creswick Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Star Patrol @ $2.45 – Bet @ Neds
Star Patrol comes off three consecutive victories and they were all impressive, so we’re in his camp.
The three-year-old son of Starspangledbanner is unbeaten in two starts at Flemington and he’s a two-time winner at the distance.
We’re happy with the $2.45 available with bookmakers.
Race 6. (14:45) Brian Beattie Handicap (1420m)
#7 – Biometric @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds
Biometric ran third at Flemington last start and he could score an overdue win at each-way odds.
The six-year-old owns three wins at the distance and getting a light weight off the inside draw could see his fortunes turn in his favour.
We wouldn’t mind seeing a betting push on race day.
Race 7. (15:20) Sir Henry Bolte Quality (2000m)
#6 – Oceana Blue @ $3.60 – Bet @ Neds
Oceana Blue was a touch unlucky not to get the job done at Caulfield and we think she can go one better.
The three-year-old filly looked good on debut when winning at Geelong and it’s only a matter of time before she wins again.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and the odds are worth taking.
Race 8. (16:00) The David Bourke BM90 (1630m)
#7 – Visinari @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
Visinari is already a three-time winner this preparation and he comes off a tidy win at Sandown.
The five-year-old makes the seven-day back up and there are no concerns about his fitness levels, which should come into play.
He rises in grade but drops in weight and his odds are generous enough to take.
Race 9. (16:33) Country Achiever G Johnstone (1100m)
#5 – Crestani @ $9.50 – Bet @ Neds
Crestani indicated that an overdue win isn’t far away after running second at Flemington behind Ocean Beyond.
The Pat Carey-trained sprinter has been around the mark throughout his career and he deserves to score a win in this class.
Punters get odds worth taking in the last race.
