The opener at Flemington sees the two-year-olds in action over the 1000m and it is the Godolphin galloper, KALLOS, that shapes as a major player. The son of Medaglia D’Oro has had two career runs and was luckless at Moonee Valley on debut before tackling the Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m), running 4th behind General Beau. In that race, he settled just off the speed and stuck on well to finish less than three lengths away. The likes of Anamoe and Jigsaw were the placegetters and he went six lengths faster than standard. That is nearly 10 lengths superior than what any other runner in this race has produced. The stable have been very astute with how they have placed their juveniles this year and with Damien Oliver on board, a breakthrough win is in his sights.

Our best bet comes up in Race 3 of the day and it is BAM’S ON FIRE that can spoil the party for fans of The Harrovian. The latter comes down from Queensland as he heads towards the All-Star Mile (1600m) but Bam’s On Fire can improve off a first up effort that saw her run 6th behind Probabeel at Caulfield in the Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes (1200m). In that race, the daughter of Universal Ruler didn’t enjoy the cleanest of getaway’s then was held up at a vital time before running on solidly. Probabeel has since come out and won the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) last weekend, while it is interesting to note that Bam’s On Fire has improved sharply on benchmark figures between her first and second runs at her previous campaigns. She also performs well at Flemington and over the 1400m. From barrier 4, she should enjoy a nice time of it in transit, while she will be ridden by the gun jockey, Jamie Kah.

Some handy types step out in the Blamey Stakes and it is FIFTY STARS that can go close to knocking over the top fancy, Buffalo River, The six-year-old battled into 7th placing behind Colette in the Apollo Stakes (1400m) but generally needs the first up hitout and improved to win this race second up last year before taking out the Australian Cup (2000m). He went 14 lengths faster than standard in this race last year and the last time he stepped out over the 1600m at Flemington he 15 lengths faster than standard when 5th in the Cantala Stakes. They are the best figures that any horse in this race has produced in the past two years except for the 16.5 lengths faster that Mystc Journey set when she was up and about back in 2019 when runner-up in the Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m). Buffalo River did go at a breakneck speed that day before floundering and while it is doubtful the tempo will be as hot, Fifty Stars will keep the frontrunner in his sights and can issue the challenge late in the piece.
