Flemington Oaks Day free tips & form

Race 1. (12:15) Maribyrnong Plate (1000m)

#5 – Chicago Bull @ $2.45 – BET NOW

One of the bigger market movers of the day, Chicago Bull has been backed in from $3.60 to $2.45 without any trial form to speak of.

Peter Gelagotis lines up the two-year-old colt which is well-bred by Exceed And Excel and expected to run well on debut.

With no form to go on, we’re simply tipping him based on the market movement but it’s significant and should be respected on a premier day from a big betting stable.

Race 2. (12:55) Drinkwise Plate BM70 (1700m)

#3 – Pure Scot @ $6.50 – BET NOW

Lindsay Park lines up the four-year-old mare which returned to winning form when winning at Ballarat last start and her best form would win this.

The daughter of Purrealist scored convincingly by 1.3 lengths and although she was outclassed in town for most of last season, she has always shown the ability to win a premier race.

There’s not much covering this entire field and bookmakers are offering good odds for all runners, including Pure Scot at $6.50.

Race 3. (13:35) Twitter Trophy BM90 (1800m)

#7 – Savacool @ $4.20 – BET NOW

Sydney form should stack up nicely in this race and the Chris Waller-trained Savacool looks the one to beat based on recent form.

The four-year-old has been consistent throughout her career, which includes 12 starts for four wins and five second placings. She comes into this with a recent placing at Randwick and she has won in Melbourne when winning at Caulfield in April.

That experience going left-handed will help here and carrying 54kg on a possible rain-affected track is only going to help her chances.

Race 4. (14:15) Off The Track Subzero BM90 (1400m)

#2 – Stratocaster @ $5.50 – BET NOW

The Kiwis rarely come over for a race like this but Stratocaster has always shown city-level talent across the Tasman when winning four of his 19 starts.

The last start winner will appreciate any cut out of the ground and although he’s going to need to carry 60kg, Craig Williams rides and he’s a good man to have in the saddle.

His opening odds of $6 have been taken and we’re expecting a solid effort from the Kiwi at handy each way odds.

Race 5. (14:55) Melbourne Cup Carnival Country Final (1600m)

#12 – Egyptian Gold @ $9.50 – BET NOW

Form behind One More Try lines up well here after it scored a win on Melbourne Cup Day and Egyptian Gold finished second behind it at Bendigo two back.

He franked that form when scoring a 1.8-length win at Stawell last start and trainer Darren Weir has the four-year-old running along nicely.

Bookmakers are giving punters good odds of $9.50 after she opened at $10 and we’re not expecting those odds to last long. Punters will see the form from this season and take the price on offer.

Race 6. (15:35) Absolut Stakes (1000m)

#3 – Super Cash @ $3.70 – BET NOW

With a superior fresh-up record, it’s hard not to put Super Cash on top here at Flemington. The six-year-old has won five of her seven starts fresh, including her most recent at Caulfield.

Since that win she has finished close in behind Santa Ana Lane in two Group 1 races and that form is tough to go past here.

Drawing barrier 11 down the Flemington straight should help and with James McDonald in the saddle, she looks a good bet at the odds.

Race 7. (16:15) TCL TV Stakes (1800m)

#14 – Waka @ $9 – BET NOW

Much like Pohutakawa on Tuesday, the New Zealand-named Waka could win for James Cummings at Flemington.

The three-year-old wasn’t close on debut at Cranbourne but improved quickly to score a 1.3-length win at Sale last start. She now rises in distance to 1800m and given her breeding, she should suit nicely.

Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy will likely sit off the pace and come with one big run down the outside.

Race 8. (16:00) Kennedy Oaks (2500m)

Read our runner-by-runner guide to the Kennedy Oaks here.

Race 9. (17:25) World Horse Racing Roses Stakes (1100m)

#3 – Humma Humma @ $6 – BET NOW

Form behind Sunlight is good and Humma Humma finished second behind the champion filly last time out.

Trained by John McArdle, the three-year-old filly has scored one win from seven starts but she owns six placings and has yet to finish out of the money.

That’s some consistency and we’re surprised at the odds on offer. $6 is a good price and the $2.25 for the place looks good.
