Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) David Bourke Provincial Plate BM90 (1620m)
#2 – Danon Roman @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Danon Roman can be a costly runner for punters but he won’t get many better chances to win than this.
The imported son of Deep Impact is a three-race winner that scored at Yarra Valley three starts back. He has yet to win at Flemington but this race is there for the taking.
$3.90 are fair odds from bookmakers so entertain his chances.
Race 2. (12:20) Rod Johnson Handicap (1420m)
#3 – Cherry Tortini @ $3.40 – Bet Now
The Patrick Payne-trained gelding was impressive when winning on debut at Sale. He rattled home to win by 1.5 lengths and his turn-of-foot was impressive.
He is a son of Night of Thunder that looks to have a nice future and there is significant betting support coming his way.
He opened at $3.70 and has already firmed into $3.40.
Race 3. (12:55) Bruce Gadsden BM90 (1420m)
#2 – Great Duchess @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Great Duchess kicked off her campaign in fine style when scoring a one-length victory at Caulfield. It was a strong outing and although yet to win second-up, she could buck that trend.
The four-year-old mare has finished in the money in 11 of her 18 starts, so her consistency rewards punters.
Drawing barrier three should see her land on the speed and kick strongly.
Race 4. (13:30) Sir Henry Bolte Handicap (2000m)
#3 – Coolth @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Coolth got too far back in the run last start but made up good ground in the straight. The McEvoy-trained gelding did well to finish third at Flemington and staying on this track is ideal.
The son of Dundeel won his first two races and although Damien Oliver jumps off his back to ride Right You Are, punters shouldn’t be deterred.
Stick with him and the $4.60 is a good price.
Race 5. (14:05) Murray Cox BM78 (1000m)
#6 – Global Gift @ $11 – Bet Now
The imported runner could have an immediate impact in Australia despite having not raced since October.
He is a son of Invincible Spirit that won three and placed in four from 11 starts in Europe. Most of his best form has come over longer distances, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see him go well here.
Bookmakers are keeping him safe in the market.
Race 6. (14:45) George Watson Quality (2540m)
#8 – Arty Lucas @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Arty Lucas has come of age recently with two wins from his last three starts. The Paul Preusker-trained gelding is a seven-time winner that scored by 3.3 lengths at Ballarat last start.
He is a nice stayer in the making that is bred to handle the 2540m. He likes to sit on the pace and that always helps in staying races.
Race 7. (15:25) A.R Creswick Stakes (1200m)
#1 – King of Hastings @ $3 – Bet Now
Anthony Freedman lines up the gelding that scored with ease at Swan Hill last start. The three-year-old is a quality type that has finished in the first two in eight of his 10 starts.
Craig Williams takes over the riding duties for this run and he deserves to be the favourite for this race.
Expect the $3 to remain firm throughout the week.
Race 8. (16:00) Brian Beattie Handicap (1420m)
#1 – Heptagon @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Heptagon is searching for three consecutive wins after posting victories at Caulfield and Swan Hill.
The Price/Kent-trained gelding has matured into a quality animal and he wasn’t tested when scoring by three lengths last start.
Finding a good spot in running off the inside draw won’t be hard.
Race 9. (16:32) Adam Lindsay Gordon Handicap (1100m)
#2 – Prezado @ $5 – Bet Now
Prezado continues to win and until he shows otherwise, we won’t be jumping off his back. The five-year-old has notched three consecutive wins leading into this race.
All three wins have come at Flemington and he has five wins and five placings in total on this track. He loves the long straight and punters should be confident.
$5 for the form runner of the field is generous.
