Looks to be a very open program with a few large fields for a meeting that usually produces a few rough results. Our top selection looks a serious horse in the making and will look to remain unbeaten.
Flemington is racing on a Good 4 with the rail true.
Ultra-consistent mare TIFFANY’S LASS is looking to make it successive victories to open the program at Flemington today. Looked good when leading all the way to an impressive 1.3 length victory over Fontein Lad. Will look to lead and could pinch it with a soft run in front. Chance.
1st: No7 TIFFANY’S LASS 2nd: No4 Hush Writer; 3rd: No1 High Church; 4th: No3 Master Zephyr
MULTAJA was narrowly beaten behind Sweet Rockette at Mooney Valley last start and will be out to atone that narrow defeat here today. Was heavily backed on that occasion and just got nailed after doing all the work up on the speed. Has won over the distance and drawn to be very competitive. Winning hope.
1st: No4 MULTAJA 2nd: No1 Setsuna; 3rd No2 Zizzis; 4th: No6 Sweet Rockette
THEANSWERMYFRIEND is racing in red hot form and will be looking to make it four on the trot here today. Proved a touch too good for his rivals when winning by a neck at Morphettville last start holding off the fast finishing Widgee Turf. Loves Flemington and has either won or finished second in five of his runs at the track. In good form and can win again.
1st: No1 THEANSWERMYFRIEND 2nd: No3 Flow; 3rd: No2 Dollar For Dollar; 4th: No6 Sully
BRUTAL (BEST BET) looks a promising colt and will be looking to keep his undefeated record in tact here today. Proved too good for his rivals when defeating Tavisan by half a length at Mooney Valley last start to go with his impressive 5 length demolish on debut back in July. Big danger!
1st: No3 BRUTAL 2nd: No6 The August; 3rd: No10 Farooq; 4th: No11 Leonardo Da Hinchi
RICH CHARM finished just out of the placings at Caulfield last start and looks well placed to bounce back into the winner’s circle here today. Has a great record at the track winning three times and excels over the distance. Ticks all the boxes.
1st: No4 RICH CHARM 2nd: No2 Crack Me Up; 3rd: No8 Im Wesley; 4th: No5 Grande Rosso
PETITION has a good record over this distance and has won on the track in the past. Chased hard when beaten by 2.5 lengths in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes at Caulfield. Extra 200 metres is a major plus and we expect a big showing from this handy mare here today. Will be flashing at them late.
1st: No13 PETITION 2nd: No8 Merriest; 3rd: No9 La Bella Diosa; 4th: No5 Miss Gunpowder
HUMIDOR looks to have returned in fine fashion and can make it back-to-back Group Ones. Resumed from a spell when eighth to Showtime in the Lawrence Stakes before flashing home to score a last stride victory over Kementari in the Memsie Stakes. Excels over the track/distance. Big show expected again.
1st: No3 HUMIDOR 2nd: No1 Happy Clapper; 3rd: No11 Kementari; 4th: No10 Kings Will Dream
The Darren Weir-trained NATIVE SOLDIER (NEXT BEST BET) looks well placed to make it successive victories after winning at big odds at Caulfield last start in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes. Has yet to miss a place from his past five starts winning three on the way. Led throughout when braining his opposition a fortnight ago. Ultra consistent and hard to go past.
1st: No3 NATIVE SOLDIER 2nd: No1 Encryption; 3rd: No4 Ef Troop; 4th: No10 Mig Energy
MR GARCIA was beaten by a length behind Call Me Handsome at Caulfield last start and can bounce back in the final event of the program here today. His run was full of merit last start as he was trapped three-wide the trip. Has drawn well and has won on this track back in December last year. Looks poised to strike today so stick with him.
1st: No10 MR GARCIA 2nd: No2 Orderofthegarter; 3rd: No15 Furrion; 4th: No6 Self Sense
