Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:20) Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Muntaseera – Bet Now
The Maher/Eustace-trained filly is coming off a run in the Blue Diamond Stakes and that form holds up nicely for this race.
She is a daughter of I Am Invincible that owns a win and two placings from four starts, so she has class on her side. Carrying 55kg is ideal and she could open the card with an impressive victory.
Race 2. (12:55) MSS Security Sires’ Produce (1400m)
#2 – Ole Kirk @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Ole Kirk was a winner on debut at Flemington and having that experience is ideal. The win came down the straight and he steps up over more ground here, but that shouldn’t worry the son of Written Tycoon.
He made up a stack of ground to cause an upset and he’s every chance of repeating the effort. Bookmakers have him at much shorter odds but he’s still a value runner.
Race 3. (13:30) The Nova100 Trophy (1400m)
#3 – Spend @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Spend was competitive in a tough race at Caulfield last start. The three-year-old colt finished third behind He’ll Haunt Us in a very tight finish.
He showed his ability when winning on debut at Rosehill, which he followed up with a fourth behind Guineas winner Super Seth.
The $4.20 is a value price and we’re expecting that to shorten on race day.
Race 4. (14:05) Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m)
#6 – Bam’s On Fire @ $6.50 – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare ran second behind Greysful Glamour last start and she’s good enough to turn the tables. It was the 13th time she has finished in the money, which is a great record from only 16 starts.
Drawing barrier two with only 54kg on her back is ideal and punters are getting value odds in the current betting market.
Race 5. (14:45) Furphy Ale March Stakes (1400m)
#10 – Wild Planet @ $2.65 – Bet Now
Team Hawkes lines up Wild Planet, which has the ability to improve and beat this field. He finished fourth at Caulfield last start and he’s usually better with a couple of runs under the belt.
He has yet to finish worse than second from three starts at Flemington and the long straight is ideal for him.
The $2.65 is a fraction short but he could drift out to backable odds.
Race 7. (16:05) Tab Kewney Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Rubisaki @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Patrick Payne lines up the highly-talented filly that has won five of her seven career starts. She’s coming off a win at Warwick Farm where she handled the wet conditions perfectly.
She has won two of her three races at Flemington and she’s unbeaten over this distance. It all bodes well for another good run, despite taking on a hot field in this race.
Her current odds should remain steady throughout the week.
Race 9. (17:20) Incognitus Stakes (1100m)
#9 – Absolute Flirt @ $9 – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly scored back-to-back wins to open her account last preparation and she’s an underrated type. She didn’t get the best of luck towards the end of her campaign, so her record could be better than it shows.
The daughter of Stratum finished behind the likes of Loving Gaby and Exhilarates, which is form much better than she faces here.
$9 is a fantastic price and her odds will firm.
