Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:00) Trevor Clarke Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Giga Kick @ $2.20 – Bet @ Neds
Giga Kick scored impressively on debut at Sale when winning by 4.3 lengths and he returned with a trial win at Cranbourne.
The Clayton Douglas-trained son of Scissor Kick gets all favours with 1.5kg off his back and we’re not surprised by the money coming for him.
Punters should climb into the $2.20 before it shortens.
Race 2. (12:35) Ken Cox Handicap (1700m)
#10 – Oceana Blue @ $3.50 – Bet @ Neds
Oceana Blue has been backed and beaten her last few races but the Peter Moody-trained filly is talented at best.
The daughter of Ocean Park looked good when winning on debut at Geelong and she has taken on tough opposition since.
Having Jamie Kah in the saddle helps and punters get odds worth taking.
Race 3. (13:10) RMBL Investment Rising Stars BM70 (1600m)
#12 – It’s True @ $4.40 – Bet @ Neds
It’s True is only a one-time winner but the five-year-old mare has been threatening to win another race.
The five-year-old mare has yet to race at Flemington but the long straight should be right up her alley and she likes the distance.
Dropping in weight helps and she has upside.
Race 4. (13:45) Flemington Cup 1849 Handicap (2800m)
#5 – Mimi’s Award @ $4 – Bet @ Neds
Mimi’s Award is getting close to posting another win after back-to-back second placings and we’re keeping the faith.
The four-year-old mare was only a nose behind the winner at Flemington last start and dropping to 54kg brings her into contention.
The $4 is a fair price and punters should be confident.
Race 5. (14:20) Byerley Handicap (1800m)
#1 – Quang Tri @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
We loved the win from Quang Tri last start after sitting wide and still showing a great turn-of-foot in the straight to win.
The tough Patrick Payne-trained filly has now won back-to-back races and she looks to have a bright future in the spring.
She needs luck from the draw but it shouldn’t’ be too much of a problem.
Race 6. (15:00) Sir Eugene Gorman BM78 (1000m)
#9 – Squid Game @ $2.15 – Bet @ Neds
Squid Game is getting close to posting another win after placing behind the likes of Passive Aggressive and Inundation.
It’s red-hot form for the three-year-old gelding and he should get every chance in the run from barrier six.
The $2.15 is well worth taking before the odds shorten.
Race 7. (15:40) VRC Members Handicap (2000m)
#1 – Mankayan @ $4.40 – Bet @ Neds
Mankayan is unbeaten in two starts this preparation and we like his chances of adding another.
The six-year-old gelding by Intello has yet to win from two attempts at Flemington but it’s only a matter of time before he wins at headquarters.
Getting some weight off his back is ideal and we’re in his camp.
Race 8. (16:15) K.A. Morrison Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Jimmy the Bear @ $11 – Bet @ Neds
The Payne-trained three-year-old comes off back-to-back wins at Flemington and punters get excellent odds for this run.
He is a two-time winner at the distance and he won’t have to do much work off the inside draw, so we’re expecting another top effort.
Punters get $11 and those odds are disrespectful.
Race 9. (16:47) L.V Lachal BM84 (1200m)
#6 – Bill the Boxer @ $3.90 – Bet @ Neds
Bill the Boxer is unbeaten in three runs this preparation and he looks to have a bright future.
The four-year-old son of Foxwedge is unbeaten in five starts at the distance and that statistic is tough to ignore.
2kg comes off his back and the odds are appealing.
