Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:55) Next Generation Sprinters 2YO (1100m)
#6 – Doull @ $3.40 – Bet @ Neds
Doull is a $1.2 million colt by Snitzel and there are big expectations for his debut on Saturday.
The Freedman-trained two-year-old won a Flemington jumpout, so he has form on the track and that bodes well.
It could pay to follow any positive betting moves.
Race 2. (12:30) Flemington Sprint BM78 (1100m)
#1 – I Am Me @ $1.95 – Bet @ Neds
I Am Me is shooting for four consecutive wins after scoring at Canberra, Ballarat and Flemington.
The three-year-old filly scored by 2.3 lengths on this track last time out and anything close to that effort sees her winning again.
Punters will have to take short odds, but she still represents value and she could be a nice type for the future.
Race 3. (13:05) Mahogany Challenge Series Handicap (1700m)
#5 – Sonara @ $6.50 – Bet @ Neds
Sonara kicked off her campaign with back-to-back wins and her form since has been solid enough to contend here.
The three-year-old daughter of So You Think ran third at Caulfield behind Adele Amour and she was close against similar opposition last start.
Punters get value each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 4. (13:40) Leilani Series BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Adele Amour @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
Adele Amour is a two-time winner and she looked good when winning at Caulfield two starts back.
She wasn’t as explosive last time out when running fourth, but she drops in weight for this run and the talent is there.
Getting the inside draw is another positive and we’re loving the odds available.
Race 5. (14:15) 2022 Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour BM78 (1600m)
#9 – Lyrical Lad @ $15 – Bet @ Neds
Lyrical Lad is a four-time winner from 12 starts and the four-year-old gelding is paying generous odds.
The Phillip Stokes-trained son of Roman Emperor is better than what he showed last start and punters get $15 for the risk.
It’s a price worth taking and jumping from barrier four should see him right in the mix.
Race 6. (14:50) Silver Bowl Series Handicap (1400m)
#9 – Arran Bay @ $3.50 – Bet @ Neds
Arran Bay owns two wins and three placings from six starts, so he’s consistent and worth following on Saturday.
The Stokes-trained son of All Too Hard ran close at Sandown last start and a repeat of that effort could be enough.
Dropping to 52kg is a steal and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him right in the thick of the finish.
Race 7. (15:30) Lexus Andrew Ramsden (2800m)
#11 – Splendiferous @ $3.50 – Bet @ Neds
Splendiferous comes off back-to-back wins and we like her chances of kicking on with it.
The four-year-old mare scored at Sale before winning at Morphettville by 4.8 lengths against open-class opposition.
We expect her to roll forward and be right in the thick of the action, so the $3.50 is a fair price that could firm on race day.
Race 8. (16:10) Winter Championship BM100 (1400m)
#18 – Bee Hunter @ $10 – Bet @ Neds
Bee Hunter was too strong for them at Flemington last start and he’s every chance of repeating the effort.
The John Sadler-trained runner is only a four-time winner from 24 starts but he often runs his best races when least expected.
Dropping to a luxury weight of 51kg could see him winning again.
Race 9. (16:45) Santa Ana Lane Sprint BM84 (1000m)
#1 – Dosh @ $3.90 – Bet @ Neds
Dosh is unbeaten from two starts over the distance and the talented filly could make a winning return.
The daughter of Rich Enuff finished third on this track last preparation and she then ran second behind Savatoxl, which is excellent form.
Getting a 3kg claimer helps her chances.
