Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:05) Very Special Kids Pin And Win (2500m)
#4 – Schabau @ $2.20 – Bet Now
Schabau is a talented stayer that looked good when resuming at Caulfield last time out. The six-year-old finished close behind Al Galayel, and that form stacks up nicely at this level.
He looked like a potential Melbourne Cup horse last campaign, before pulling up with an injury at Flemington. His form prior to that was excellent and we’re not surprised at the short odds.
Schabau will roll forward and take plenty of catching down the Flemington straight.
Race 2. (12:35) Antler Luggage Exford Plate (1400m)
#1 – Immortal Love @ $3.90 – Bet Now
The Price/Kent-trained gelding is unbeaten following his victory in the McNeil Stakes last time out.
He is now perfect from three starts and the well-bred son of Snitzel deserves to be favourite for this race.
Cherry Tortini is a nice type, but Immortal Love is up and running this season.
Race 3. (13:05) Furphy Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m)
#2 – Savatiano @ $2.50 – Bet Now
Savatiano was scratched last start after a pre-race incident, but she is good to go for the Let’s Elope Stakes on Saturday.
The James Cummings-trained mare is a 10-time winner from 33 starts, and although yet to win at Flemington, she is in career-best form.
There is only one runner in this field with her class, and we’ll take her chances of scoring.
Race 4. (13:40) Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m)
#1 – Tofane @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Tofane is coming off a win in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes at Randwick, which is terrific form for this race.
The Mike Moroney-trained mare has yet to win fresh up, and this distance is short of her best. However, she ran fifth in the T.J. Smith Stakes behind Nature Strip, and she ran the fastest last 200m.
$4.40 is a price worth taking against an open field.
Race 5. (14:15) Winning Edge Presentations Handicap (1700m)
#3 – Aktau @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Aktau is another classy runner for Mike Moroney, which scored three wins from four Australian starts.
The imported five-year-old won at Caulfield two starts back before beating a talented field at Mornington in March.
He hasn’t raced since but conditions suit and he has a stack of ability.
Race 6. (14:55) The Sofitel (1400m)
#14 – Windstorm @ $2.20 – Bet Now
The Williams-trained four-year-old didn’t have much luck at Caulfield last start, and he’s much better than that.
He is a well-bred son of Redoute’s Choice that owns five wins from seven starts, and with a better jockey in the saddle (William Pike), he should get a better ride.
$2.20 is short but the odds are reflective of his ability.
Race 8. (16:15) Seppelt Wines Danehill Stakes (1200m)
#4 – Doubtland @ $7 – Bet Now
Doubtland didn’t come on last start at Rosehill behind Anders, but that was a tough contest and Sydney form stacks up nicely.
The three-year-old colt was previously unbeaten, but with that run under his belt, she should be tough to beat at Flemington.
Running down the straight could be ideal and the $7 is a value price.
Race 9. (16:50) G.H. Mumm Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m)
#3 – Letzbeglam @ $8 – Bet Now
Letzbeglam didn’t fully fire in the Blue Diamond but her form prior was excellent and she could be a smart type.
The Busuttin/Young-trained filly ran a better time than Hanseatic in the Prelude, and she didn’t have any luck on that occasion.
The daughter of Snitzel is bred for speed and she could return by scoring a win at generous odds.
