Flemington Racing Tips For June 20 - Can King Of Hastings claim a second straight win?

Flemington hosts an even nine race card on Saturday on what will likely be a rain effected track.

The surface is currently rated a soft five, but with rain due on Friday and Saturday, we should be expecting at least a soft seven.

Our best bet of the day is a 3YO who is a straight track winner and an open class winner last start while our value is an underrated Flemington specialist.

Rod Johnson Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Flemington Favourite - Race 2 No. 3 Cherry Tortoni

This 2YO gelding by Night Of Thunder out of Tortoni won impressively on debut at Sale out of a strong form race.

He takes a step up to 1420m which looks favourable for a son out of Tortoni who's progeny has run well over a but further.

Billy Egan and Patty Payne are a lethal combination in Victoria and look set to take this promising youngster to the winners stall once again.

He will have to lump a big weight of 60.5kg, but this race is compressed weights, so this is not as big a weight as it may seem.

A.R. Creswick Stakes Tips (Race 7)

Flemington Best Bet - Race 7 No. 1 King Of Hastings

The last start Golden Topaz winner comes into this race with the strongest form lines compared to his opposition he faces, back to 3YO level.

Two starts ago he was second behind renowned Flemington specialist Preazdo after what was an impressive jumpout.

He backed up this performance a fortnight ago in the Golden Topaz at Swan Hill, in what was a fast run race, he managed to get the slip stream of the leaders and run straight past them.

Back down the straight, third-up where he is a winner and we should expect to see him in the winners stall as the best bet of the Flemington card.

Brian Beattie Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Flemington Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 17 Victoria Star

He is the third emergency in the race, but at the time of previewing, we are expecting a bit fo rain on Friday which should take the track to a soft six to seven range which may cause the extra few scratchings he needs.

He caught the eye first-up when looking a certainty beaten 200m from home, he took tight gap and exploded at Cranbourne on May 15.

Coming to a good track at Caulfield at his next start on May 30, he was just one length of this race favourite Heptagon.

He will strike a rain effected track here, the conditions that suit him best as he is unbeaten (five from five) in the wet.

If can gain a start, expect the $8 on offer to at least halve.

Adam Lindsay Gordon Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Flemington Roughie - Race 9 No. 12 Lord Von Costa

A 'quiet' Flemington specialist as his price suggests.

Two wins and four second placings from nine attempts at Flemington is quite strong form.

First-up he was in the market on May 23 here, but that was on a heavy eight surface, which he did not handle as well as a few others in the race.

He is much better on good and soft track, which he will find a soft track with a run under the belt.

He is a two time winner second-up, including a Flemington straight win last prep.

Craig Williams sticks with him which is a positive lead and drawing nearer to the outside favours his chances even more.
