Flemington horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:55) 180 Years Racing @ Flemington (1200m)
#3 – Mystery Dancer @ $2.65 – Bet Now
Mystery Dancer is on debut for Brent Stanley and he won a recent jumpout in good fashion. The two-year-old by Akeed Mofeed is a well-bred runner that is out of a Group 1 winner in Bel Mer. That breeding typically stacks up well on debut.
Brett Prebble takes the ride from a good draw and given the betting support; we’re expecting a top effort.
Race 2. (15:40) Furphy Ale Sprint BM70 (1200m)
#1 – Forbid Me Not @ $5 – Bet Now
Forbid Me Not will carry 60kg after the 3kg claim from Melissa Julius. It’s a claim that could help the five-year-old mare win her sixth career start from 22 attempts.
The daughter of Floral Pegasus finished second at Colac last start, and although it came against easier opposition, she looked good at Moonee Valley in two starts prior. Those runs hold her in good stead and she has the class to beat this field.
The $5 odds are worth taking.
Race 3. (16:05) RMBL Investments BM64 (1200m)
#12 – Grinzinger Allee @ $7.50 – Bet Now
The Jason Warren-trained gelding showed plenty of toe on debut when breaking maiden status and although beaten since, he has faced good fields.
He was good enough to run sixth behind Soul Patch at Flemington, which has since run well in the Australian Guineas. Form like that should take him close and connections have a big opinion of this runner.
Watch for any late market moves at an each-way quote.
Race 4. (16:40) Corporate Family Days BM70 (1600m)
#10 – Paradee @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Paradee was backed and beaten last start at Sandown but she didn’t do much wrong. The three-year-old didn’t handle the soft conditions when running fourth and her win at Bendigo is a much better form guide.
Drawing barrier two is ideal for this race and with Regan Bayliss in the saddle with only 54kg, she’s a good each-way bet.
Race 5. (17:15) Saltwater River Trophy BM64 (1600m)
#8 – Mount Madeira @ $5 – Bet Now
Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young train the talented type that is coming off back-to-back second placings. It has been putting in the big bounds late and the 1600m distance should suit nicely.
In-form rider Damian Lane takes the ride and although the opening odds of $4.60 have drifted, that’s just more value for punters.
Race 6. (17:50) Port Phillip Club BM78 (1400m)
#15 – Jumbo Ozaki @ $3.50 – Bet Now
We’re sticking with Jumbo Ozaki, which has plenty of talent and he just needs to get a good run throughout. It shouldn’t be too hard from barrier eight with Craig Williams riding, so we’re confident of his chances.
The four-year-old has finished in the money in all seven career starts, which is testament to his consistency. Punters are getting good odds for this run and even the $1.55 for a top three finish is handy.
Race 7. (18:25) Melbourne Cup Carnival on Sale BM78 (2000m)
#6 – Skelm @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Skelm is in career-best form after posting consecutive wins earlier this campaign. The five-year-old won by three lengths at Sandown before winning again at Caulfield against a nice field.
His two runs since have consisted of two placings at Flemington, behind the likes of Donndubhan and Salsamor. That form looks strong for this and there has been plenty of money come his way.
The opening odds of $6 has been taken.
Race 8. (19:00) Flemington Distance Post BM64 (1100m)
#17 – Rotator @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Rotator came to Melbourne with a good reputation and she delivered last start at Warrnambool. The three-year-old filly changed stables earlier this year after running well in Sydney, but she was inconsistent.
Her 3.3-length win last start is a good guide of her ability and we can’t see any major challengers in this race.
The $4.20 is a value price.
