Flemington Tips 3/11/2022
BEST BET 🏆
Race 8 No. 1 SHE’S EXTREME- ($2.70)
Keen on SHE’S EXTREME in the Kennedy Oaks. She comes out of the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), running 3rd and that form has held up with the 7th place getter, Manzoice, and the winner, Sharp N Smart, providing the exacta in the Victoria Derby (2500m). Renaissance Woman was 6th in the Spring Champion and she had the measure of Foxy Cleopatra and Pavitra at her start prior with the latter going close in the Wakeful so suspect the Spring Champion is the form reference. She’s Extreme has been up against some of the best at her starts prior, including her Golden Rose (1400m) run that saw her finish 6th behind the likes of Jacquinot and In Secret and not far from Golden Mile. She was strong to the line in the Spring Champion, producing the fastest late splits, and will find a cushy position in the run from barrier 1 with Tommy Berry on board.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3 No. 5 FORTUNATE KISS– ($8)
This looks to be a suitable assignment for FORTUNATE KISS. The Daniel Bowman-trained galloper has some form that is better than it looks and was unlucky in successive Group races at the track and trip before working home from well back to finish 8th in the Tristarc Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on October 15, beaten just over three lengths. She has gone more than seven lengths faster than standard in all four of her runs this time in, which compares very well to this lot. At the set weights and penalties she looks suited, while I wouldn’t mind seeing Ben Melham settle within striking distance.
Best Value 💰(EACH-WAY)
Race 6 No. 6 SARTORIAL SPLENDOR- ($31)
SARTORIAL SPLENDOR can go close at a bit of a price in Race 6. The six-year-old has some excellent form down the Flemington straight and comes into this with five weeks in between runs after missing out behind Wolflands at Moonee Valley over the 955m on September 23. He conceded 10kg to that horse after lugging 63kg. The John Sadler-trained galloper drops 6kg and always produces good figures at Flemington. He went 11.8 lengths faster than standard when 3rd behind Sirius Suspect the last time he was at the track. That came over the 1200m. The John Sadler-trained galloper went 10.2 lengths faster when scoring over the 1000m last year. Anything around those marks and he is right in this.
