Flemington free tips & form
Race 1. (12:15) KIIS Jase/PJ BM90 (1000m)
#8 – Crown Witness @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Put three wins together in 2017 and hasn’t won since, but her most recent efforts have come in tough grades and this is much easier.
The Henry Dwyer-trained mare ran 14th in the Oakleigh Plate last start she performed well prior to that when running second at Moonee Valley.
She’s no sure thing here but 54kg on the back helps and her odds represent value.
Race 2. (12:50) World Horse Racing BM84 (1400m)
#7 – Greyworm @ $2.75 – Bet Now
Wasn’t entirely suited by the small field at Moonee Valley last start where he didn’t have the best of luck, but he will be suited by this track and this size field.
The Hawkes-trained four-year-old was bettered by Rox The Castle, who is a $6 chance in this race but Greyworm looks to have a bright future ahead of him.
Needs to find cover from out wide but most of the money is coming for him.
Race 3. (13:25) Furphy Ale BM90 (2000m)
#3 – Exemplar @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Punters should always respect the imported runners and kicking off at 2000m looks ideal for the son of Galileo.
Trained by Liam Howley, the five-year-old winner of one of six starts, Exemplar ran second at Leopardstown last start and although that came in 2017, he could fire in a fresh state here.
This isn’t a deep field and he could take advantage.
Race 4. (14:05) Incognitus Stakes (1100m)
#2 – Sunset Watch @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Scored a fresh up win last preparation when scoring at Moonee Valley and although he’s untried at Flemington, it’s a track that should suit.
The three-year-old is a winner of three from six and it has taken a good horse to beat him in the past, including the likes of Charge last time out.
Drawn to come down the outside of runners and he could lead throughout.
Race 7. (16:00) Tab Kewney Stakes (1400m)
#1 – Angelic Ruler @ $2.90 – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly was too short in the betting last start but she represents better value here following her placing behind Qafila at Caulfield.
A daughter of Universal Ruler, the filly won five of her nine starts in Perth before running well in Melbourne last start. That run should hold her in good stead here and we’re expecting a big effort.
Randwick free tips and form
Race 1. (12:30) Wenona Girl Quality (1200m)
#1 – Spright @ $3.40 – BET NOW
Five-year-old mare which is dropping back in grade after running fifth behind Booker in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate and that form should be good enough to take this out.
She does rise in weight to 59kg, which will make it much harder, but the quality of opposition lessens and there’s plenty of money coming for the mare.
$3.40 could drop as the race gets closer.
Race 2. (13:10) Fireball Stakes (1100m)
#6 – Baller @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Baller was too good for them at Rosehill last start and despite taking on a harder field here, punters had to be impressed with that effort.
The colt by High Chaparral is bred to run over distance but his sprinting talents are clear and he could add to his record of three wins from five starts.
Nice odds on offer.
Race 3. (13:45) Reisling Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Anaheed @ $4.20 – BET NOW
Comes through a different form race than many in this and we think it’s the right form line. The Snowden-trained two-year-old won the Sweet Embrace last start and didn’t really know what she was doing.
She will only improve with more racing under her belt and given her tactical speed, she might kick at the top of the straight before her main opposition can fully wind up.
Race 4. (14:25) Todman Stakes (1200m)
#2 – Time To Reign @ $3.20 – Bet Now
Caused an upset when winning the Silver Slipper last start and that was something of what punters were accustomed of seeing from the colt.
Trained by Gary Portelli, the son of Time For War has won three of his four starts and he has won on multiple surfaces.
Nice field but he could control the tempo once again and kick away for another impressive win.
Race 9. (17:40) Network Rand City Stakes (2000m)
#5 – Casterton @ $6 – Bet Now
That was a solid run for fourth last time out and he was always going to improve with the run. The Chris Waller-trained import battled on well in what became a strong-tempo race.
The pace didn’t suit but he continued to grind away to the line and that’s going to do him plenty of good for this.
Value each-way odds on offer.
