2019 Melbourne Cup day racing tips - Can Shared Ambition bring it home for punters?

Melbourne Cup Day is finally upon us and, we look as if we are racing on rain affected ground.

For straight racing, I think the better part of the ground will be out wide where Tofane came from to win the last on Saturday.

The support card looks as competitive as ever, with one standout coming in race four where we believe he is a future Group One hero.

Flemington Favourites

Race 10 No. 6 Betcha Flying

She is the type of filly I want to be following into this race.

She looks very progressive and found some trouble when needing more room in the Reginald Allen at Randwick on October 19.

The filly by Uncle Mo has proven to handle all track conditions and this long Flemington straight should suit her.

If she can peel at the top of the straight and hit the front at the clock tower, I think she will be winning this race.

Race 6 No. 12 Gina's Hope

There is a query of her over 1400m, but she seems to be a different horse after her six week freshen-up.

She took out a BM64 race at Ballarat two back which the runner up has since won dominantly at
Moonee Valley.

She then ran second in the Black Pearl at Geelong, beating home Into The Abyss who is $8 in this race.

In that race, she settled last and rattled home strongly, looking like she would eat up the extra ground and a bigger track.

From the outside gate, she will go back and storm home, where she looks a great each-way bet.

Race 4 No. 3 Shared Ambition 

Everyone would know I am a big fan of this horse now and he is yet to let me down.

Most would have been nervous last start, waiting for a gap to open for him, but when it did he exploded.

He meets similar opposition coming into this race and I still believe he will be winning an Australian Cup next preparation.

He is a horse that reminds me a lot of Humidor when he first came to Australia, but this galloper is now raw like he was.

You have to take the shorts which is always dangerous on Cup day, but he does look a lock for the card.

Race 8 No. 2 Yulong Prince

I am keen on this galloper for two reasons.

Firstly, he finally gets to Flemington, which gibes a big horse like him room to move and come around runners, rather than dive through them.

The other reason is that he gets blinkers on for the first time which looks a last effort from Waller to get the most out of this talented South African import.

He is a Group One horse on his day and enjoys the soft going which he will find here.

His last-start in the Coongy was a forgive, being tightened for room and simply having no luck.

From barrier 13, he will sit back and have one last crack at them with what should be a good pace in front.
