Flemington Tips 11/3/2023


Race 7 No. 3  I WISH I WIN- ($4.50)

Best Bet comes up in the time-honoured Newmarket Handicap and it is I WISH I WIN that can go one spot better than a last start effort that saw him finish runner-up in the Lighting Stakes (1000m). The Peter Moody-trained galloper smashed the clock late in the piece in that race when settling back before running on. The four-year-old gets out to the 1200m and will settle back but pace looks solid up front with a few of these to take up the running. 



Race 4 No. 11  DUBENENKO – ($4.60)

The two-year-olds feature in the Sires Produce Stakes and DUBENENKO must be considered after a last start effort that saw her flash home for 6th in the Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at big odds. The Adelaide filly was stepping up from a Morphettville BenchMark 62 win and settled well back before being held up from the 400m to the 200m. She was strong late before finishing two lengths away. The daughter of the leading second season sire, Russian Revolution, gets out to the 1400m and Craig Williams jumps on board. 



Race 5 No. 7 TOREGENE – ($6)

TOREGENE shapes as a solid player in Race 5. The promising mare from the Matthew Williams stables at Warrnambool is four from seven and resumed with a runner-up performance behind Espiona at Sandown on February 25 over the 1400m. Second up at her last preparation, the four-year-old went from a BenchMark 64 win at Cranbourne to a win at Flemington over the 1600m in the MCC Final on Oaks Day, improving 10 lengths on figures in the process. 



Race 3 No. 5 WOLLOMBI – ($7.50)

WOLLOMBI might be worth a bit of a play in Race 3. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained galloper has risen through the grades this preparation and was sent down from Sydney to tackle the Group 3 Vanity (1400m) here on February 18. The daughter of Extreme Choice produced the quickest late splits to go 9.6 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is a better figure than what any horse has produced. She comes into this with four runs under her belt and might still be on the up, while the 1600m looks like it will suit.
