Flemington Tips April 25

Colonel Sybil Irving MBE Tips (Race 4)

Flemington Roughie - Race 4 No. 4 Hard To Cross

He's a big price due to having no first-up wins, however, his three fresh outings have all had merit and that includes a fifth at Moonee Valley in December via a stronger benchmark.

Hard To Cross backed that resumption up with two placings in this grade before stretching out to 2100m in a strong BM70 at Sandown and he was spelled after that even run.

All three of his wins have come over 1600m, which is the distance he resumes over on Thursday, while he looked to be ticking over well in an April 4 trial, along with a jump-out on April 16.

VRC St Leger Tips (Race 6)

Flemington Feature Bet - Race 6 No. 12 Alma Rise

This filly is from a strong New Zealand family, being closely related to both He's Remarkable and Xtravagant, and she has shown above average ability in two starts.

Alma Rise caught the eye on debut with a slashing second over the Sandown 1500m before stepping up to 2000m at Pakenham and bolting in by five lengths in her second outing.

The placegetters from that March 28 maiden both recorded massive wins at their starts and while this another step up in class, it's effectively a Class 1 outside of two rivals.

WGCDR Ian Bayles DFC Tips (Race 7)

Flemington Value Bet - Race 7 No. 15 Our Empress Zoe

The daughter of Fastnet Rock always takes a few runs to hit her straps, which adds further merit to her two autumn performances and she gets Blake Shinn back aboard here.

Shinn was in the saddle via her Sandown return, where fitness gave out late with 60kg and along with stripping fitter, she has a decent weight swing on Splash Back from that clash.

Our Empress Zoe hit a flat spot early in her second-up attempt at Caulfield, although she did recover somewhat late and more improvement is predicted now third-up.

Auckland Thoroughbred Racing Inc. Trophy Tips (Race 8)

Flemington Best Bet - Race 8 No. 9 Flying On A Limb

Her lead-up work was just fair leading into her Caulfield return and while she was a beaten fav in that March 13 attempt, it was more than a pass mark given the jump-out.

Flying On A Limb was unlucky following that over this track/trip, as she was held up at key stages in the straight and the mare was also in restricted room, yet she made ground.

The four-year-old has since completed a nice jump-out in a hot Cranbourne heat behind Estriella and I Am Me, while she made light work of Katsu (Listed winner) third-up last prep.
