Flemington Tips - November 10


Race 1 - 12:15PM MELBOURNE’S OWN 3AW TROPHY (1600 METRES)
Manuel has the class to be winning this, but he steps up to the mile for the first time following a taxing 1400m run on Heavy ground four days ago – no thanks. If you take Fifty Stars out of that race, Manuel wins convincingly, but it’s the unknown that has me wary of him. AL PASSEM on the other hand is a winner at the track and distance fourth-up before going for a break, and with four runs under his belt following that break, he’ll take some catching from out in front. 


Race 2 - 12:50PM JUVENILE DIABETES RESEARCH FOUNDATION PLATE (2000 METRES)
LUCKY FOR ALL finished best to score from Danon Roman last start, and that pair can fill the Quinella again. Lucky For All was a tragedy beaten fourth-up last campaign as the $1.40 favourite, but with three runs under his belt this time in, he looks ready to show his best. Danon Roman does meet him better at the weights, but the inside draw may work against him if he drifts a few pairs back. Lucky For All is unbeaten in two starts over 2000m and should get every chance down the Flemington straight from barrier 7.


Race 4 - 2:10PM DERUCCI CHATHAM STAKES (1400 METRES)
WIDGEE TURF has been racing extremely well this campaign and has only missed the placings once in his past 13 starts as well as racking up nine wins and nine placings from his 23-start career. He was charging home behind Iconoclasm last start over 1500m before that galloper went on to finish 2.5 lengths from Best Of Days in the Group 1 Kennedy Mile. Widgee gets in with 1.5kg less here, has won at Flemington previously and this looks easier.

November 3


Race 1 - 11:45AM THE CARBINE CLUB STAKES (1600 METRES)
I’ve been with Ranier at his past two starts and he got the job done for us last time, but I have to switch camp and go for the Hawkes-trained WILD PLANET. He did it tough out three wide when beating the unlucky Ranier two starts back at level weighs, but another wide run without cover saw him finish half a lengths from Ranier and Yulong January when carrying 2.5kg more than the winner and 1.5kg more than the runner-up. Drawn for a good run this time and has more upside than both – he can turn the tables. Yulong January was pestered by the riderless horse last time, and despite drawing wide, he should be in the finish. Vassilator was 2nd to The Autumn Sun in the Caulfield Guineas and has to be included.
Result (2nd)

Race 2 - 12:20PM MUMM WAKEFUL STAKES (2000 METRES)
It’s impossible to go past the Darren Weir-trained VERRY ELLEEGANT here. She was luckless behind Amphitrite in the Edward Manifold (1600m) at Flemington and then finished best to score at Caulfield last start in the Ethereal Stakes (2000m). She should get her chance to wind up at Flemington and will prove hardest to beat.
Result (Unplaced)

Race 6 - 3:05PM EMPIRE ROSE STAKES (1600 METRES)

AMPHITRITE is two from two at Flemington, and last start in the Thousand Guineas, she ran quicker time (1:35.67) than The Autumn Sun did (1:35.58) to win the Caulfield Guineas. As well as running quicker time, Amphitrite came home in 34.52 for her final 600m and 11.63 for her final 200m, while Oohood clocked 34.89 and 11.88 for the same sectionals of a slightly slower early speed. Her times are very good and she’s perfectly suited at Flemington, and I think she has Oohood’s and every other runner’s measure if she brings her last start form. 
Result (Unplaced)

October 6


Race 2 - 1:05PM ANTLER LUGGAGE STAKES (1400 METRES)
RANIER brings extremely strong Sydney form to this having finished 3rd to Miss Fabulass and then 2nd to Nakeeta Jane who just missed in the Group 1 Flight Stakes last Saturday. Ranier carried 61kg last start and was caught deep without cover, but with just 56kg on Saturday, and with Hugh Bowman taking the ride from gate 3, he looks hard to beat with fitness on his side.  
Result (2nd)

Race 6 - 3:40PM GILGAI STAKES (1200 METRES)
Judging by the sectionals BONS AWAY produced when first-up over 1100m at Caulfield, he needed the run and should improve significantly second-up. After drawing an outside gate, Mark Zahra opted to snag him back to last where he tried to make a long, sustained run and peaked late to finish 4th. He clocked the quickest 600m to 400m split for the entire meeting, the sixth quickest 400m to 200m split and the 29th fastest final 200m sectional. That tells me he blew out late and has plenty of upside. He was beaten 0.7 of a length in this race last year and looks to be going better this time around. 
Result (3rd)

Race 7 - 4:20PM THE BART CUMMINGS (2500 METRES)
Avilius has been outstanding in all three runs this campaign, but I do have a concern with him over 2500m, and at the short quote, he’s worth taking on. He finished 2nd to Cracksman in the Group 2 Prix Niel (2400m) but after enjoying a nice trail behind Cracksman, that galloper pulled right away from him late while others gained ground – hence the query over him at this trip. YOGI on the other hand has been set for this race and is proven at the trip. He wasn’t suited dropping back in distance last start but worked home well, and this race looks perfect for him as he gets in with 4.5kg less than Avilius.
Result (3rd)


September 15


Race 2 - 1:05PM CAP D'ANTIBES STAKES (1100 METRES)
This is a cracking race for the three-year-old fillies, but I think a star will be born. I’ve been all over Sweet Rockette with her dazzling trials, and she scored an impressive win last start over the highly-talented Multaja who also lines up here. Trilli defeated Sweet Rockette on debut and there are some other classy fillies in this line up, but I can’t go past the Phillip Stokes-trained MUSIC BAY. She was scratched from Moonee Valley last week after drawing wide and not being suited with her get back and run on style, and although she may find this a bit short, she’s a big striding filly that will love Flemington. Her public and private trials have been sensational, and she’s a filly with a big future. She’ll settle rearward, and if Craig Williams can get her into the race at the right time, she has the acceleration to overhaul these and challenge for favouritism in the Thousand Guineas.
Result (2nd)

Race 4 - 2:15PM ANTLER LUGGAGE PLATE (1400 METRES)
The Hawkes Racing-trained BRUTAL may not have won like a good thing last start following his dominant debut win, but he didn’t appear to handle the Moonee Valley corner and still got the job done late. The spacious track at Flemington should allow him to produce his best, and with two 1200m runs under his belt, the son of O’Reilly looks perfectly suited stepping up to 1400m. 
Result (1st - $2.80)

Race 9 - 5:30PM SOFITEL GIRLS' DAY OUT HANDICAP (1700 METRES)
FURRION couldn’t have been more impressive winning first-up and he has so much upside it wouldn’t surprise to see him winning at Group 1 level this campaign. He was snagged back to the rear over 1412m at Geelong where he made a wide sustained run and went on to score by 2.5 lengths. He went from a narrow maiden win to a 4.75-length BM64 win when second-up last time in, and if he takes similar improvement on Saturday, he’ll be winning this comfortably. 
Result (1st - $2.30)

Race 7 - 3:30PM A.R. Creswick Series Final (1200 METRES)
On the strength of his last start win, NATURE STRIP is clearly the one to beat. He meets the 2nd and 3rd placed horses much better at the weights despite braining them and running blistering sectionals in a near track record performance. As he long as he can run 1200m as strong as he does 1100m, nothing will get near him. 
Result (1st - $1.50)
