Saturday Racing Tips: Flemington Best Bets 25th May
Our expert has come up with three horses to follow at Flemington including one that was heavily tried last time out – but never went around!
Flemington has put on a competitive nine-race card but we have found three runners that stand out above the others in their respective events.
Flemington is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 3m the entire circuit.
Flemington Race 1 - 11:35AM Cobcroft Support National Jockeys Trust Trophy (1200 metres)
Going with ST EDWARD’S CROWN to get the cash in this after being heavily supported last week but scratched the barriers. The son of Epaulette has had just the one career run and had the flashing light on him, rattling home off a slow start to finish second behind High Excalebration. Watch the market closely.
1st: No7 ST EDWARD’S CROWN 2nd: No1 Sebrakate; 3rd: No9 Miami Bound; 4th: No2 Archery Butts
Flemington Race 3 - 12:45PM LUCRF Super Handicap (1100 Metres)
Taking a chance with FILL THE FLUTE who loves racing fresh. The Jamie Edwards-trained runner is unbeaten first-up with two wins from as many starts and can fly over the sprint trip. Has raced in harder company than most of these and Georgina Cartwright’s 2kg claim could make a difference over the concluding stages. Good chance.
1st: No8 FILL THE FLUTE 2nd: No9 Eurack; 3rd: No16 I’m Telling Ya; 4th: No4 Parsifal
Flemington Race 6 - 2:45PM Heritage Finance Handicap (1800 Metres)
Banking on a bit of speed here which will really assist MAIN STAGE for the Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young yard. Broke through for a much deserved win last time out when flashing home from the rear to win at Sandown. His best runs have all been when ridden quiet so from gate 10 you can expect to see Brett Prebble take him to near last. Will be running on strong.
1st: No8 MAIN STAGE 2nd: No9 Dr Drill; 3rd: No6 Sir Pippin; 4th: No7 He Ekscels
