Flemington Racing Tips For May 23 - Can Milwaukee atone at 1200m?

Flemington hosts a nine race card where all races are named after the champions at Living Legends.

We are expecting a very wet track, but hoping we can find it on the lighter side of heavy.

The rail sits out five meters so expect the straight races to be raced down the middle to outside of the track.

Tom Melbourne Trophy Tips (Race 2)

Flemington Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Khoekhoe

The Showdown has been a very valuable form reference in the weeks since, and this bloke was the outstanding winner.

What he has on his side is an explosive turn of foot which we have seen at both of his career wins.

The majority of horses he faces here have fresh form lines but they are giving our top selection 4.5kg on ratings.

The second favourite Indictment was below par at Morphettville last start but had performed well in a strong race prior, but he does not have a win on the board.

Khoekhoe is on track for a start in the Group One JJ Atkins and this looks the perfect stepping stone to that event.

Almandin Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Flemington Favourite - Race 4 No. 12 Alfa Oro

This impressive four-year-old has won his latest two starts incredibly easy and looks to be going through his grades nicely.

Last start at Pakenham Synthetic on May 1 he was not let off the bit when beating Paperboy, a horse who loves the synthetic surface.

This race clearly has a lot more depth and the short odds does not look attractive, but as a favourite who is running on the day, he is a huge winning chance.

Drawing the outside down the straight is never a worry and having the rail to  guide him will help immensely.

I would not go diving into the price, but he looks a horse who can be winning this and potentially much better races.

Hilton Nicholas Straight Six Tips (Race 6)

Flemington Best Bet - Race 6 No. 7 Milwaukee

A great horse down the straight ran so very well over 1000m last week here in behind a hot speed.

He looks much better suited up to the 1200m for this race, with 57kg and an outside gate.

There looks enough speed in front with Home Of The Brave who should bowl along, helping this horse come over the top in the concluding stages.

The one week back-up looks a positive stepping up in trip and he should be ready to peak, and if anywhere near his 1200m Flemington best, he will best this lot.

He will not want the track too heavy but if it can race in the soft range, this could be his for the keeping.
