Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) Vale Darby McCarthy BM84 (1200m)
#1 – Mystery Love – Bet Now
Mystery Love flopped in the heavy conditions last start but she’s much better than that. All four wins have been on better track and if she gets conditions to suit, she’ll be tough to beat.
The four-year-old mare by Eurozone won at Caulfield last month and it was an impressive performance. She’s rising through the grades nicely and the big weight shouldn’t stop her.
Just keep an eye on conditions.
Race 2. (12:20) AAMI Next Generation Sprint (1000m)
#7 – Chrome Angel – Bet Now
Chrome Angel is coming off an impressive win at Warrnambool and she should be competitive against this grade.
The Street Boss filly didn’t fire two starts back at Caulfield but she really hit the line with purpose last time out.
Track conditions look ideal for this race and punters could get a good price.
Race 3. (12:55) G.H. Mumm Mile BM78 (1600m)
#4 – Merited – Bet Now
The well-bred filly by Fastnet Rock didn’t cop the heavy track last start but she’s better than that. Her first two wins came on a good track and the track should dry up throughout the week.
Her best win came on debut when scoring by 3.5 lengths and anything close to that would be good enough at this level.
Drawing barrier five will see her track the speed and come with a late run.
Race 4. (13:30) Kennedy Mile BM78 (1600m)
#7 – Duke of Plumpton – Bet Now
The former Kiwi was outgunned in the straight last start but that was to be expected second-up. With that fitness under his belt, his winning chances are strong here.
Trained by Patrick Payne, he scored an easy win fresh up at Echuca and he could get back to his winning ways.
Punters should expect nice odds against a quality field.
Race 5. (14:10) Furphy Dash (1000m)
#9 – King of Hastings – Bet Now
King of Hastings returns after a busy campaign and he’s the class runner of this field. The three-year-old finished fifth behind Alligator Blood last start and the last time he raced at Flemington, he scored by 1.3 lengths.
He loves the open racing that Flemington presents and although 1000m is a touch short of his best, he has won down the straight.
Watch for any market push in his favour.
Race 6. (14:50) The Andrew Ramsden (2800m)
#2 – King of Leogrance @ $2.45 – Bet Now
King of Leogrance has hit form this season and he’s in the right hands. Trained by 2019 Melbourne Cup-winning trainer, Danny O’Brien, the son of Camelot could win three in a row.
He scored by 1.3 lengths on this track two starts back and backed that up with a demanding win at Morphettville.
He’s on track for a race like the Melbourne Cup and his confidence is sky high.
Race 7. (15:30) Lexus Trophy (2000m)
#4 – Rupture – Bet Now
Rupture is flying this campaign after posting back-to-back wins. The six-year-old has always had the ability and after winning easily last start, he’s heading in the right direction.
He showed good barrier speed to lead throughout at Flemington last start and he could be in the mood for winning again.
Punters will likely get short odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 8. (16:10) Seppelt Wines Handicap (1400m)
#14 – Vassilator – Bet Now
Vassilator is long overdue a winning turn and the Group 1 placegetter just needs a bit of luck to go his way.
The Colin Little-trained four-year-old is better on good tracks, so any improvement in the surface will help his chances.
Drawing barrier 20 doesn’t help but having Craig Williams in the saddle does help.
Race 9. (16:45) Tab Trophy (1400m)
#3 – Beehunter @ $4.20 – Bet Now
The three-year-old gelding missed by only a nose at Flemington last start and he was a touch unlucky not to win.
He settled at the back of the field before coming with a sustained run around the outside of runners. It didn’t quite go to plan but it could here.
Damien Oliver rides from barrier two and that is ideal.
