Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:45) Blueant X5 Party BM78 (1400m)
#3 – Pride of Jenni @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pride of Jenni should be fitter after two runs back from a spell and she is a smart filly on her day.
The Symon Wilde-trained three-year-old pulled up with issues last start, so she had excuses into that effort.
Barrier 12 shouldn’t matter much at Flemington and we’re confident of a big run.
Race 2. (12:20) Tab Support Nat Jockey Trust (1600m)
#2 – Holbien @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Holbien scored a long overdue win at Caulfield last start and he is capable of kicking on with it.
The six-year-old doesn’t win often but he runs well at the track and we’re not surprised at the betting support coming his way.
He opened at $2.40 and he could start around $2, so take the value available now.
Race 3. (12:55) Racing.com Plate (1400m)
#1 – Blushing Tycoon @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money is coming for Blushing Tycoon, which comes off a second placing at Morphettville in open company.
The two-year-old son of Written Tycoon has already handled Group 3 company, so this isn’t going to any harder on Saturday.
The $4.50 is likely to firm on race day.
Race 4. (13:30) PFD Food Services BM84 (2500m)
#2 – Heart of Puissance @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Heart of Puissance didn’t lose many admirers when finishing second at Warrnambool last start, so consider in this race.
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old is a nice stayer in the making and having Jamie Kah in the saddle is a bonus.
We’re not surprised by the odds and he should be tough to stop.
Race 5. (14:10) Donate BM78 (1100m)
#10 – La VIna @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lindsay Smith-trained four-year-old has rattled off consecutive wins this campaign and she could continue her rise through the grades.
She won at Ballarat before scoring at Warrnambool in heavy conditions, but she has form on a good surface and it won’t worry her.
57kg is ideal and punters get each-way odds.
Race 6. (14:50) Ecycle Solutions Trophy (1100m)
#7 – All of Brighton @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Patrick Payne-trained gelding has had plenty of racing for his first campaign, but he has fitness under his belt.
He owns two wins and two placings from five starts and he didn’t do much wrong at Caulfield last start. He finished fourth behind Curran, which has been a good form race.
Punters should expect a big effort and the odds are generous.
Race 7. (15:30) Off the Track Community Handicap (2000m)
#1 – Real Sensation @ $12 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Real Sensation has drawn barrier 19, but he should find cover over this distance. He wasn’t far behind them at Caulfield last start and his win prior came at Flemington.
The three-year-old son of Real Impact scored by a nose over a talented field, so we’re confident of a bounce back effort.
$12 is good shopping.
Race 8. (16:10) Hilton Nicholas Straight Six (1200m)
#1 – Great Again @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Great Again, which is finding it hard to get back to his winning ways, but he’s capable.
The eight-year-old is a 10-time winner from 27 starts, so class is on his side. His run for fourth last start was credible and he has yet to miss a placing at Flemington.
Barrier three suits down the straight and we wouldn’t be overlooking his chances.
Race 9. (16:40) Victorian Jockeys Association BM84 (1800m)
#9 – Maserartie Bay @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained four-year-old owns five wins from 14 starts and that was a smart return to racing last start.
He finished second at Caulfield by a nose and he owns a second-up win, which bodes well. Getting a 3kg claimer to ride is another positive and punters get lovely odds.
We wouldn’t be leaving Maserartie Bay off our ticket.
