Flemington Tips for January 15


Race 1 - 12.33pm Resimax Group Rapid Racing, Friday 21 January 


Selections: 1,5,7,3.

1. JAMARRA is the in-form runner with race experience, yet has come up at nearly double figures which seems a crazy pricce. He has improved with racing, winning two back at Bendigo before being beaten by the possible Blue Diamond winner in Jacquinot. That form is well and truly good enough.

5. Maximillius is on debut for the Price & Kent Jr with Jamie Kah aboard, a stable who look to have some more than handy two-year-olds. Jumpouts suggest he has good ability.

7. English Riviera has opened up favourite on debut after winning two jumpouts in nice style.

3. Exonumia is bred to be a nice horse who looks to have some early toe.

Race 2 - 1.08pm Furphy Refreshing Ale Trophy Tips 


Selections: 2,3,7,4.

2. SQUID GAME comes out of a very strong 1100m race and now comes up to 1400m which will suit a lot better. Assuming that effort was just a tick over run in between races, the Payne stable will have him primed to go and from barrier six, he may be able to land somewhere around midfield.

3. Philadelphia Storm is a very nice horse who won well last time at this track and trip. He has had a five-week freshen-up between runs, so the last 50m is my only concern.

7. Victory Bay gets the tick of approval from Jamie Kah, jumping off last start winner Attractable to ride. That is a positive sign.

4. Attractable as noted won last start at Sandown and there is no reason why he can't prove to be in the firing line again.

Race 3 - 1.43pm California Memory Living Legends Plate Tips


Selections: 7,8,5,1.

7. SOMERSET MAUGHAM looks very well placed, building to a win especially over this track/trip. He was good two starts back when finishing fourth and arguably should have won last time. He plummets 4kg in weight and although is facing a tougher race on paper, some of the 'better horses' in the race are not genuine winners.

8. Under My Spell has hit the line sweetly at her last two, winning two starts back and closing hard behind Americain Angel last time. 1700m looks no issue.

5. Designer Chef beat Somerset last time, but I am convinced that the result is reversed if the latter had some more luck in running.

1. Dark Dream is racing in great form, but now needs to win one.

Race 4 - 2.18pm Twilight Payment Living Legends Plate Tips


Selections: 1,4,2,5.

1. CAN'T GO WONG is unbeaten from two and can make it three, coming up to 2000m for the first time. He was too slick over 1400m and last start won a very good form race at Sandown. He looks very hard to beat and I am inclined to say that he will run the trip out, coming from the Maher & Eustace stable.

4. Dunkerry looked a stayer in the making when winning at Stony Creek in impressive fashion last time. Getting to Flemington does not hurt his chances.

2. Fighting Arrow was a massive winner three back, did not handle the Valley all that well two back and bounced back hard to win with ease over 2150m at Terang.

5. Elzamee won a 1500m maiden at Newcastle last time and looks set to get over this ground plus further.

Race 5 - 2.53pm Be A Mate, Nominate Trophy Tips


Selections: 7,4,1,2.

7. FUNDRAISER returned in good orde over 1200m here when not beaten far by the in-form Pioneer River. He is yet to miss the money when second-up in three preps while he is a winner over 1400m previously. Carrying just 54kg, this almost looks a little bit of a target race to get his confidence up for the preparation.

4. Not To Be Mist was a shock winner at Flemington two starts back, but did back up that performance with a game placing in the Chester Manifold Stakes behind a star in Lighthouse.

1. Justacanta is as honest as the day is long and can run a cheeky race fresh, coming back to Flemington.

2. Blazejowski is another honest performer but may just lack that bit of zest on this field.

Race 6 - 3.28pm VRC Event Staff Handicap Tips


Selections: 4,5,1,8.

4. NICOLINI VITO won last start and had placed in his two prior runs, so the form is on the board this prep to say that he can win. He comes up to the 1400m after tackling 1300m last time, but did look to run through the line which is a positive indication that he will run it out. In what is an open race, I am expecting him to run well.

5. Toff Choice was not too far away from Pioneer River last time, closing off super from the back of the field to grab fifth spot. 1400m suits him better.

1. Over The Sky is arguably the best horse in the race, but first-up against some horses who are fitter just has me a little worried to dive in early. The market late will be interesting.

8. Field Of Roses was a winner in mid-December and has had a nice jumpout win in between.

Race 7 - 4.08pm Standish Handicap Tips


Selections: 2,1,10,5.

2. HALVORSEN is a straight track specialist, who was a surprise winner two starts back at Flemington on Oaks day and ran well last time in the Kensington with 60kg. He drops to 56kg now and has Jamie Kah aboard which is absolutely no knock. He won this race back in 2020 when going just as well as he is now.

1. The Astrologist is another straight track specialist , ho comes into this race first-up from a break. He is a two-time winner when first-up.

10. It'sourtime is racing very well of late and gets in with 54kg, so he can cause some damage. He was a touch unlucky last time behind Scorched Earth, who is no slouch.

5. Mileva drops 2kg form her last start Kensington Stakes win, but Halvorsen still has a 2kg weight pull on her.

Race 8 - 4.50pm The Stud and Stable Staff Awards Tips


Selections: 9,4,12,17.

9. TAKUMI goes around at a massive price again after what was a horror show last week where I do believe he wins with clear air. He now draws 12 and although that means he may have to settle right back in the field, he will have room to his outside to at least give him the opportunity to build into his work.

4. Brasada has a crack, but he just has such a negative race pattern which sees with too much to do in the straight. Thinking he runs a big race with his wide draw.

12. Marcolt is extremely talented, getting the job done last time at The Valley, a track that probably does not suit his race style. I do not like a wide draw for him, but the talent is there.

17. Moktaffy is over the odds after a tough Sandown win last time. Getting to Flemington will only help him.


Race 9 - 5.35pm Resimax Group Jockeys Challenge, Friday 21 January Tips


Selections: 12,10,7,4.

12. AMERICAIN ANGEL now has the confidence up, winning last start after a string of consecutive placings. After her maiden win, we saw her run third in a race at Caulfield behind Brookspire which she should have won. Getting to Flemington is going to suit her racing pattern and she will be strong late.

10. Picaroon overcame massive trouble last time at Morphettville to salute in terrific fashion. He faces the big boys now, but there is no reason why he can't continue that winning form.

7. Sweet Karolina is one of my favourite mares racing. She seemed a little flat last time so I am just putting that down to a big first-up effort. She can bounce back.

4. Score hit the line so nicely last week behind Open Minded who is stakes class. This horse is going well but is another who needs that genuine tempo.
