Flemington Tips June 8

Race 1 - 11:50AM RDA Peninsula Jenny Stidston Sprint Tips (1200m)

Best: 2. Jenni's Meadow. The Magic Millions 2YO Classic came a little too soon for this filly at start two in her first prep, although she wasn't disgraced in that high rating affair.

The Gold Coast feature attempt followed a Mooney Valley debut victory over this trip and Jenni's Meadow is much better suited out to six furlongs here second-up.

The query going into her Sandown return was the 1000m and the market drift reflected that, but she was strong late and she carries 3kg less for Saturday's attempt.
Value: 7. Wonder Boy. This debutant has been respected in the early markets following some decent lead-up work, with most of those hit-outs coming at Mornington.

Wonder Boy was held-up on May 15 before getting back and working home under his own steam via a 900m jump-out on May 29, which was his latest workout.

Jerome Hunter horses generally come to hand early, especially youngsters and with the wide draw favorable up the straight-track circuit, this first starter makes some appeal.

Race 2 - 12:25PM RDA Horsham Jan Croser Plate Tips (1400m)

Best: 6. Jenny Jerome. It's a typically competitive off-season BM78 for the mares and a return to Flemington will suit Jenny Jerome, who saluted over this track/trip last year.

There's been excuses in two Caulfield runs since a Group 3 placing in Tasmania, as she was very wide on April 6 before being back via a leader-dominated race last start.

The Patrick Payne-trained four-year-old moved well via a recent tick-over jump-out and with a few more favours in transit here, she can figure at an each-way price.

Value: 4. Fancify. She did have every favour when leading throughout via a similar race at Caulfield on May 11, although the South Australian visitor was only second-up on that occasion.

Fancify is putting together a handy record, with four wins and three seconds from nine starts, and while she draws out, the speed map has her crossing to take the lead.

Seven furlongs looks her right distance and while she loses Jaylah Kennedy here, 3kg claimer Tatum Bull gives her decent relief and she is overs at $7+.

Race 3 - 1:00PM RDAV Mary Longden Mile Tips (1600m)

Best: 11. Craig. This is a big step up from a Bendigo maiden, although the three-year old is against his own age group for his second Australian assignment.

The son of Territories also carries less weight, with a 4.5kg drop from a fast-run affair on May 22 and that speed allowed him to build through his gears after a slow getaway.

He's capable of settling closer to the speed, as was evident via his last jump-out before his return outing and a strong tempo over a mile is another tick in this metro tilt.

Value: 6. Riverina Power. We mentioned her in the value selections for a 1400m three-year-old handicap on May 18, where she saluted in the last stride.

That followed a plain second-up run, where she was backed following a good return at Caulfield and her one try over this trip was in the Group 2 Sandown Guineas in December.

She's was a big price last time due to the soft track, but Flemington is very different to Warrnambool and from a low draw on firmer ground, she's big odds for a last-start winner.

Race 4 - 1:35PM RDAV Sally Francis Plate Tips (2520m)

Best: 4. Berkshire Breeze. There's at least a few chances in this staying affair and while Berkshire Breeze is up in grade, the Ciaron Maher-trained import is on an upwards spiral.

He was only narrowly denied on Australian debut at Caulfield before bolting in with a BM70 at Cranbourne and his overseas wins were both over 2414m early last year.

He's won a jump-out since that May 3 triumph and now down in the weights from a low draw, Ethan Brown should be able to give the grey every chance on the speed.
Value: 1. Pesto. Over the odds at a double figure price is Pesto, a Team Hawkes galloper who comes down to Melbourne third-up off two decent Sydney efforts.

I loved the return out in a Rosehill when sustaining a long run in a decent form race and there were some excuses last time out, where he was held-up early in the run home.

He's got a platform to improve off that May 25 outing, where he was a month between runs and going 1500m to 2000m, while the eight-year-old has decent Flemington stats.

Race 5 - 2:10PM RDA Moorabbin Jane Baker Plate Tips (2000m)

Best: 8. Waverley. Another competitive race on a tough card is this 2000m event for the three-year old's and at big odds, this Sydneysider can improve fourth-up.

Many of these have been running against each other in Melbourne, whereas Waverley arrives off three NSW efforts and he simply hasn't been handling wet tracks of late.

The last time he saw a good surface was in the Geelong Classic, which was a brave on-speed effort when splitting Served Cold and Kosgei, and that's good enough for this.

Value: 6. Hydrogen Power. From the inform Mick Price & Michael Kent (Jnr) yard is Hydrogen Power, who I felt was looking for this trip after a runner-up finish behind a smart one on May 11.

He covered ground when second to Sure and then when staying at a mile, he didn't pick up early enough over that trip when back in the field via a fast-run race.

That should top him off perfectly for this rise in distance and from a low draw over the longer trip, he can enjoy a more economical run under Dean Yendall.

Race 6 - 2:45PM RDA Daylesford Lesley Hewitt Trophy Tips (2000m)

Best: 12. Silent Surrente. The South Australian visitor is knocking on the door following three terrific autumn outings to open her campaign and this is a winnable race across border.

Silent Surrente was brave in second behind a flying Sea What See when stepping up to this journey last time out and that winner would be an odds-on fav in this.

Under the BM100 weight scale, the five-year-old finds herself right down on the 53kg minimum and under Linda Meech, she should get every chance here from gate three.

Value: 9. Aberfeldie Boy. The gap between runs with no jump-outs is an obvious query, but staying at 2000m suggests he's completed enough work at home.

Aberfeldie Boy was unlucky throughout his three-year-old season, which included a few derbies and he looked ready to strike off his last appearance in the Group 3 Easter Cup.

This is a little easier overall and he stays at a similar weight, while off what should be a good rolling tempo here, the gelding can blend in late with the right run.

Race 7 - 3:20PM TAB / ATA Trainers’ Trust Handicap Tips (1100m)

Best: 6. Carbonados. The reports were that he was always going to need the Australian debut at Geelong in January, with the ex-Kiwi supposedly searching for more ground.

The Hayes yard may have simply got that wrong, as he bolted in fresh and denied a big betting drift in the process before failing to measure up over 1200m and 1400m.

Carbonados has always looked a jet at the jump-outs and that's been no exception leading into Saturday's resumption, as he's won two Flemington heats by decent margins.

Value: 14. Vintage Star. The Richard & Chantelle Jolly yard have won with two of their last three Melbourne starters and Vintage Star arrives here off a first-up win at home.

There was plenty of merit to that May 11 victory, as he sat on a strong speed with 60.5kg and kicked despite being vulnerable when the leader dropped out quickly.

His form in Adelaide isn't flash, but the Jolly's so often get it right with these youngsters on the road, especially up the straight and he carries 5.5kg less second-up.

Race 8 - 4:00PM RDA Pakenham Trophy Tips (1400m)

Best: 20. Elouyou. While it's technically a big rise in grade in going from a midweek BM70 up to a Saturday BM84, this is not a strong race for the benchmark.

Elouyou benefits from this scale in coming down to 54kg after carrying 59.5kg last start and he came again late there after leading, while The Open has franked that form.

The build-up for seven furlongs has been near on faultless, as he just lacked a turn-of-foot in good fresh run over 1100m and third-up now, the four-year-old looks ready to peak.
Value: 17. Cawdor. He looked like a star in his lead-up work and the market acted accordingly ahead of his Australian debut at Sandown, where he was a heavily supported fav.

He put in a shocker there and reportedly he was playing up pre-race, so expect some of the freshness to be knocked out and he was too bad to be true there respective.

This stable often go a race too early when they back one and the tongue tie being reapplied here suggests that he may have choked down in that May 25 performance.

Race 9 - 4:34PM RDA Oaklands Trophy Tips (1200m)

Best: 17. Losesomewinmore. They're very different horses, although Losesomewinmore faces a similar scenario to Elouyou, i.e. both are going from a BM70 to a BM84.

Well there's plenty of these who are capable on the day, I see a lot of off-season warriors who have mostly found their ceiling, whereas this Adelaide horse has plenty of upside.

He ticked the straight-track box in style via his Melbourne debut and with the map favouring him once again from the same barrier, he's very dangerous here down in the weights.

Value: 16. Disneck. I don't mind this placement from Bjorn Baker, who sends this gelding south and the hard-fit three-year-old has been ticking over well.

They're starting get to the bottom of Disneck, who appears to be most effective when left alone early before coming with one run and that was evident at Rosehill two starts back.

That's a difficult circuit to circle a field on and that form has stood-up through Cigar Flick (won last Saturday), while back to 1200m suits off his Scone appearance.
