Flemington horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) TCL Leilani Series Final (1400m)
#7 – Megamea @ $3.40 – Bet @ Neds
Megamea won fresh up at Sandown before placing at Flemington and there’s a lot to like about that form.
The five-year-old mare by Master of Design is well-weighted with 54kg and punters get fair each-way odds for the favourite.
She is rarely too far away and she’ll give a good sight.
Race 2. (12:25) Yulong Next Gen Sprinters Final (1200m)
#5 – Chaseton @ $3.80 – Bet @ Neds
Chaseton scored by three lengths at Geelong on debut and that’s a good form guide for this contest.
The two-year-old son of Capitalist was heavily backed on that occasion and we expect money to come for him again on Saturday.
Getting the inside draw down the straight shouldn’t be much of a negative.
Race 3. (13:00) MSS Security Rivette Final (1400m)
#1 – Bella Rouge @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
Bella Rouge is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Flemington and Rosehill.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old won her only start on the track by a nose and the form out of that race has stacked up.
Her odds have shortened since markets opened and we’re following the money moves.
Race 4. (13:35) Kennedy Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m)
#4 – Quang Tri @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
The Patrick Payne-trained two-year-old filly scored by a half-length at Swan Hill and she looks to have city claims.
She will need to improve on that effort against a field with much more depth but the early signs are good for the daughter of Shalaa.
Punters get each-way odds worth taking.
Race 5. (14:15) G.H. Mumm Mahogany Challenge Final (2500m)
#3 – Phere the Ex @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Phere the Ex looked home at Sandown last start when running second by a nose behind Whirly Jig.
The Hayes-trained three-year-old gets another chance on Saturday and the son of Exosphere looks set to handle the rise in distance.
He won’t take long to win his second race and the odds appeal.
Race 6. (14:55) Lexus Banjo Paterson Final (2600m)
#1 – Maserartie Boy @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding looked good when winning by 1.8 lengths at Flemington last start and he could go back-to-back.
He is an eight-time winner with experience on his side, so handling the 2600m isn’t a worry. He also likes running at Flemington, so the $5 is a value price.
Barrier four is ideal and his odds could firm on race day.
Race 7. (15:30) Furphy Santa Ana Lane Final (1200m)
#4 – Ashford Street @ $3.70 – Bet @ Neds
Ashford Street continues to win and the four-year-old did it impressively at Sandown last start.
The son of Moshe scored by 3.3 lengths and dropping to 54kg for this contest is ideal, hence why he’s being well-backed again.
The $3.70 could firm to around $3 on race day, so take the odds available.
Race 8. (16:10) Penfolds Winter Championship (1600m)
#12 – Tuvalu @ $3.10 – Bet @ Neds
Tuvalu owns six wins and four second placings from 10 starts and he was too good for them last time out at Flemington.
The Lindsay Smith-trained four-year-old has yet to finish worse than second and that’s an incredible record. He puts himself in the race and he’s likely to cross from the wide draw.
54kg is ideal and his odds are shortening.
Race 9. (16:40) Tab Silver Bowl Series Final (1600m)
#1 – Jimmy the Bear @ $16 – Bet @ Neds
Jimmy the Bear continues to be underrated by bookmakers despite winning back-to-back races at Flemington.
The three-year-old scored by a nose against a tough field last start and running at $16 odds is a steal for punters.
Carrying the big weight is the only thing against him.
