Race Shape:

Gailo Chop (6) will spear forward and likely lead with Scales Of Justice (9) probably on its back. They are the two logical go-forward horses. Mystic Journey is a short favourite but black figures are still available across most bookies and corporates but there is plenty of value around her if you think she is vulnerable second-up.

The Key Runners:


13. Mystic JourneyA. Darmanin: $2.15*:

A deserved favourite and she gives the impression that Flemington is her ideal track. Has won twice from as many starts here and both of those were Group Ones – the Australian Guineas and All-Star Mile. Won well first-up at Caulfield but it was the way she found the line over the final 100m which gets us excited. Has the best finish in the race and can utilise the long straight to her advantage. Will probably be midfield in running but only has to be three to four lengths off them turning for home and she will be winning. Don’t think anything can match her over the final 600m.



3. Humidor D.Lane: $17*:

Is a dead-set Flemington horse with three wins and a third from seven starts at the track. Wasn’t asked to do a great deal first-up behind Scales Of Justice. Has a brilliant record second-up (6s 4w 1p) and the WFA conditions of this are up his alley. Value!


2. Gailo ChopL. Meech: $51*:

Will be up on the speed and is the likely leader. Goes good fresh with three wins first-up and won two trials in preparation for this. Now with Matthew Williams from Warrnambool. Last time she raced was second to Winx in the Queen Elizabeth.



  1. Mystic Journey $2.15*
  2. Scales Of Justice $5*
  3. Humidor $17*
  4. Gailo Chop $51*

Betting Plan:

It is hard to go past Mystic Journey but she is pretty short so if you wanted to play it safe, unload the bank on her. Otherwise, Humidor and Gailo Chop at each-way odds are the way to go to watch the race.
