Flemington Betting Preview, Tips & Best Bets

Racing returns to headquarters this Saturday and there's a strong nine race card in the offing for punters. 

The rail will be out 10m the entire circuit but I expect horses will be coming off the fence here.

Flemington Favourites

Race 3 No. 16 Talented - $3.70 via BetEasy

The daughter of Snitzel was scratched from Sandown to run first up here. She won with ease at Geelong before going on to run two and a half lengths behind one of the best two-year-olds in Australia, Microphone. She came to the end of her prep third up, but was game in defeat over 1200m.

She comes into this off the back off of two jumpouts. She cruised around in her first just for a blowout, but the second she was asked for a little more effort to run through and grab third.

She loves Flemington and is proven down the straight running fast splits behind Microphone. She has the ability to put races away between the 400m and 200m running sub 11 seconds.

If she can produce these splits here, she is the horse to beat.

Flemington Roughies

Race 9 No. 8 Laure Me In - $8.50 via BetEasy

This five-year-old gelding looks ready to win. He was a little disappointing first up at Flemington running 11th behind Groundbreak, before a much improved showing at Caulfield last start.

He ran out of galloping room at the top of the straight as he was building momentum but was still hard to the line to only finish just over two lengths off the winner. 

He finally gets to the 1700m which he will thrive from and Luke Currie hops back aboard who won on him last prep. He is a third up winner and should be coming home hard off a genuine tempo to fight out the finish.
Race 8 No. 6 Oohood - $13 via BetEasy

She is a top mare. She had two starts last prep which were both okay behind Nakeeta Jane but she was not quite at her top.

She has had a jumpout coming in to this on July 26. She showed pace early which is not her usual racing pattern. She ran third on just beaten by Fundamentalist, but also in that trial was rival Milwaukee – who she left in her wake while he was ridden along. 

Her only start at Flemington was a ‘sick beat’ in the Group One Empire Rose Stakes where she clearly should have won.

The disappointing thing here is she has drawn the inside, but as her trial showed, she may now have a new string to her bow and be able to sit handy.

At $13 I am more than happy to back her here.

Flemington Best Bet

Race 7 No. 7 My Pendant

She was fantastic behind Sylvia’s Mother here last start. She was not on the most favourable part of the track but she stuck to her guns and fought to the line to only be beaten just over a length by a top class mare.

She is a winner here at the 1400m with 60kg, and gets in here with 55.5kg. 

Damien Oliver jumps on board the mare and should give her the perfect ride from barrier six. Danny O’Brien was full of praise for her during the week and the short quote of $2 certainly represents her chances.

Flemington Next Best Bet

Race 4 No. 2 Tshahitsi

He was too good last start at Caulfield, pinching the race with 600m left to run. He stays at the 1400m most likely in preparation for a 1400m-1600m Group One in the near future.

He has previously won a Winter Championship here and finished fourth in a Standish Handicap so we know he likes Flemington.

He only rises one kilogram in weight and should take a sit behind Jungle Edge so he will get the perfect run in transit.

Flemington Next Best Bet: Race 4 No. 2 Tshahitsi - $3.40 via BetEasy
