Flemington horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:00) Darley Spring Preview (900m)
#10 – The Globe – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Globe hasn’t had a trial to prepare for this race but the booking of Damien Oliver is an excellent sign.
Trained by James Cummings, the two-year-old daughter of Frosted is bred to be better than average, and betting will be a good indicator.
The juvenile races are tough to figure out, but The Globe looks like a nice type in the making.
Race 2. (13:35) Vale Phil Power Trophy BM64 (1000m)
#3 – Celestine – Bet @ Sportsbet
Team McEvoy lines up the three-year-old filly that is unbeaten in two starts in South Australia.
The daughter of Nicconi scored on debut at Murray Bridge by a length before storming home to win at Morphettville.
She looks like a nice type and although facing more depth, she could measure up.
Race 3. (14:10) Rendr Trophy BM64 (1400m)
#5 – Toyetic – Bet @ Sportsbet
Toyetic is a talented three-year-old gelding that didn’t get all favours when fourth at Bendigo last start.
The Freedman-trained son of Sebring looked good when winning at Sandown prior to that, and that form would take him close.
He is drawn to get every chance off the inside draw and Damian Lane takes the ride.
Race 4. (14:45) Kennedy Oaks Trial (1800m)
#10 – Salto Angel @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Salto Angel showed nothing on debut at Sandown but she quickly improved when rising in distance last start.
The Danny O’Brien-trained daughter of Sacred Falls is bred to enjoy this distance, and she hit the line well for second at Sandown.
Damien Oliver takes the ride and punters are getting each-way odds.
Race 5. (15:20) Star of the Realm BM70 (1100m)
#11 – Ocular – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ocular couldn’t have been more impressive when winning at Bendigo last start, and we’re sticking with him.
The Shea Eden-trained four-year-old raced away to score by 4.3 lengths and it was an impressive outing for a runner that has always had ability.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and despite carrying 60kg, he should be right in the mix.
Race 6. (15:55) AAMI Victoria Derby Trial (1800m)
#11 – Let’s Karaka Deal @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained colt looks to have a good staying future following his maiden win over 1600m last start.
He looked impressive winning at Swan Hill and punters should have confidence with him over the longer distances.
John Allen is an aggressive rider to have in the saddle, so expect a solid effort at value odds.
Race 7. (16:30) Henley Homes BM78 (1600m)
#10 – O’Tauto – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters have to keep the faith with O’Tauto, which is running well below his best, but he has performed highly in the past.
The five-year-old is a two-time winner with four placings, so he has been around the mark throughout his career.
Punters will get a good price and he could finish over the top of them late.
Race 8. (17:05) Rokon BM70 (1400m)
#10 – Ears The Barman – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ears The Barman is a well-related type that only needs luck from barrier 18 to figure in the finish.
The Phillip Stokes-trained four-year-old owns two wins and two placings from eight starts, so he has made a consistent start to his career.
Having Luke Nolan in the saddle is a bonus and punters should get value odds.
