Flemington free tips & form
Race 1. (12:40) Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour Trophy (1200m)
#10 – Clarice Cliffs @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Clarice Cliffs certainly didn’t lose any admirers when running a narrow second behind Oregon’s Day in the Frances Tessady Stakes last start at Flemington.
The Greg Eurell-trained four-year-old had been in winning form prior with a one-length win at Geelong before scoring an emphatic six-length win at Pakenham.
Staying down in the weights is ideal and she looks a good bet in the first.
Race 2. (13:20) Autumn Trophy (1400m)
#1 – Outrageous @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Only a one-win runner and hasn’t won for a long time now, but the form is better than it looks. The Hawkes-trained gelding has been running behind the likes of The Autumn Sun, Aramayo, Sandbar and El Dorado Dreaming.
That’s just to name a few and there are certainly no champions in this field. He could take advantage of that and run well at each way odds.
$6.50 could drop to around $5 come start time.
Race 3. (13:55) Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Talented @ $3 – Bet Now
Living up to her name after scoring by two lengths on debut and then running second behind Golden Slipper hopeful Microphone in the Talindert Stakes.
Her maiden form has stacked up nicely with La Tene coming out and winning last Saturday. That bodes well for this and drawing wide down the Flemington straight isn’t the worst place to be.
Nicely-bred daughter of Snitzel which should continue to run well this season.
Race 4. (14:35) Furphy Ale Trophy (1100m)
#3 – Schilldora @ $3 – Bet Now
Didn’t have much luck when running three wide at Moonee Valley in the Typhoon Tracey Stakes and she will be better for the experience.
Her form prior included three wins at Morphettville, with the most impressive coming two back when scoring by three lengths.
Drawn ideally in barrier three and with only 55kg on her back, she looks the hardest to beat in what is a wide-open field.
Race 7. (16:30) Seppelt Wines March Stakes (1400m)
#3 – Hellova Street @ $7 – Bet Now
The class runner of this having finished a half-length behind Australian Guineas winner and All Star Mile second favourite Mystic Journey at Hobart two back.
He franked that form by winning at Launceston by a length last start and although some punters might get turned off by the barrier draw of 16, he has good barrier speed and will likely cross to the rail.
$7 is great value.
Rosehill free tips and form
Race 2. (13:40) Canadian Club Maurice McCarten Stakes (1100m)
#5 – Trekking @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Five-time winner Trekking makes his return after finishing fourth at Flemington during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.
The James Cummings-trained four-year-old has scored two wins on this track with the latest coming in October. He scored a high-quality win on that occasion and running at 54kg is going to make him awfully tough to beat here.
Looks a good bet under the circumstances.
Race 3. (14:15) Magic Night Stakes (1200m)
#1 – Probabeel @ $5 – Bet Now
New Zealand filly which is being set for the Golden Slipper. The daughter of Savabeel has rattled off three consecutive wins across the Tasman and looks a nice type in the making.
She won by 2.8 lengths in the Karaka Million at Ellerslie and although she has been given the visitors barrier of 14, she has the class to overcome that.
Opie Bosson travels with the filly and she should go well.
Race 5. (15:35) Chandon Phar Lap Stakes (1500m)
#11 – Verry Elleegant @ $3.60 – Bet Now
The former Kiwi runner is highly talented and that was evident when running second behind Amphitrite last time out at Flemington.
Despite not having much experience racing this way around, she was a winner at Ruakaka in New Zealand by 2.5 lengths and that’s right handed.
Carrying 54.5kg makes her a massive threat in this and if she settles in the run, they won’t get close to her.
Race 8. (17:30) Ajax Stakes (1500m)
#11 – Seaway @ $6 – Bet Now
Makes a big rise in class after posting consecutive wins this campaign but he’s capable of handling it. The Waller-trained four-year-old has finished first or second in nine of his 11 starts and that’s good consistency.
He gets the advantage of carrying only 53kg for this and that could bring him into contention.
Looks a strong chance at the $6 and $2.25 for the place is good value.
