Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) Rod Johnson Handicap (1420m)
#8 – Secret Glamour @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old filly comes off a win at Cranbourne and she’s capable of maintaining her unbeaten record.
She scored by a length and although meeting harder opposition, the daughter of Sebring looks to have a bright future.
$3.40 is a fair price and it could pay to watch betting moves.
Race 2. (12:20) Adam Lindsay Gordon Handicap (2540m)
#2 – South Pacific @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
South Pacific hasn’t shown his best form since arriving in Australia, but the son of Galileo has been improving slowly.
The five-year-old finished fifth at Caulfield behind Mohican Heights before finishing strongly behind Le Don De Vie at Warrnambool.
This isn’t the strongest field he’ll ever face, so put him on top.
Race 3. (12:55) Murray Cox BM78 (1000m)
#10 – Zorro’s Dream @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Consistency is with Zorro’s Dream, which owns three wins and nine placings from 14 career starts.
The Mitchell Freedman-trained four-year-old has missed a win or placing in only two of his 14 starts, which is an incredible effort.
Punters continue to get value odds and getting a 1.5kg claimer in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 4. (13:30) Bruce Gadsen BM90 (1420m)
#7 – Don’ttelltheboss @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare is only a two-time winner, but she goes well at this track and distance. She comes off a third placing at Flemington and the form out of that contest should stack up.
Dropping to 51.5kg with the claim is ideal and it’s not the hardest field she’ll ever face, so she could get the chocolates.
$8 is a value price for an in-form runner.
Race 5. (14:05) The David Bourke BM90 (1620m)
#9 – Kurabui @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kurabui is unbeaten after four starts and although she’s rising in class again, she looks capable of handling this field.
The four-year-old scored a 1.3-length win over La Chevalee last start and that form has since stacked up in a tough race.
54kg helps and we’re not surprised by the short odds available.
Race 6. (14:45) Sir Henry Bolte Handicap (2000m)
#1 – Namakwa @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained three-year-old comes off back-to-back wins and the most recent came at Flemington.
He is a son of Dissident that scored easily by two lengths and there is plenty to like about that performance. He was strong to the line and punters get value odds.
$4.60 should firm throughout the week.
Race 7. (15:25) A.R. Creswick Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Curran @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Curran has been in stellar form this season and another top effort is expected. The three-year-old owns three wins and three second placings from seven starts, including a win at Flemington.
He scored by 1.8 lengths last time out against a similar field and although he has to carry a big weight here, he has the best form in the race.
His finish behind Ayrton has stacked up nicely and $5 is a value price.
Race 8. (16:00) Brian Beattie Handicap (1420m)
#8 – Odeon @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
$10 for Odeon is a good price and although he’s struggling to win races, there has been nothing wrong with his recent performances.
The seven-year-old son of Zacinto finished second behind Yulong January two back before running third last time out.
Drawing wide doesn’t help but he’s well-weighted.
Race 9. (16:32) Jack Styring Sprint (1100m)
#1 – Red Can Man @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Red Can Man is fresh up and the former Perth-based runner looks capable of beating this field.
He comes off a sixth behind Elite Street in a tough race and his recent trial win showed that he’s ready to fire fresh up.
Jamie Kah rides and punters get each-way odds worth taking.
