Flash Feeling (No.2), Audrey Girl (No.6) & Hard Questions (No.8)

Dangers

Blushing Tycoon (No.1) & Secret Glamour (No.4)

Racing in Melbourne again comes from Flemington this Saturday for another very strong off season program. I get the feeling I am going to sound like a bit of a broken record over the coming weeks, but the quality of fields at the moment and in particular the depth is providing some excellent racing and very good betting races. The weather in Melbourne despite being very cold has been quite dry and as such we will be racing on a good track with the rail out six metres. I think with that rail getting out a bit further and the inside lane being a lane that was used fairly frequently last Saturday it won’t be a surprise to see horses get a bit wider and towards the middle of the track through the day.

I am kicking the day off in the third race which is over the 2000m for the three year olds. Happy to stick with a horse that did the job for us here last Saturday in Flash Feeling. Gee, that was a win. He went back to last off a fairly moderate tempo, was ridden pretty cold and confidently and the straight, but really launched over the final furlong to run down General Firepower and the margin on the line was fairly clear cut. I thought it was an excellent win and stepping up from the 1700m to the 2000m should be no issue for him. In fact it probably is something he will relish. I expect a pretty similar ride here back off the speed and aside from that flat run at Sandown where he had a slow recovery his form this campaign has been excellent. Keen to be with him.

Saving on a couple at odds. Audrey Girl was pretty stiff I thought last start at Cranbourne. You can make a good case she probably should have just about won that race. Her form last campaign has her competitive with the likes of Burning Power and Yaphet which reads well for a race of this nature. I just thought she was one that went up well over her true odds here and at $30+ is worth a ticket.

Hard Questions comes into this race third up for the in form Uncle Lindsey Smith yard and I reckon he is going well. He did enough first up when supported in the market and then was good at The Bool in what is proving to be a hot form race (starting to see a few of those from The Bool). I fancy he can roll forward on speed here for Jarrod Fry, should appreciate the step up in trip and will run well at double figure odds.

Betting strategy

I will have 2.75 Units the win on Flash Feeling! I will have 1 Unit the win on Hard Questions and 0.75 Units the win on Audrey Girl and happy to take the $34 the latter!

Race 6

2:45pm

Suggested

Kinane (No.7), Kissinger (No.13) & Coolth (No.18)

Dangers

Five Kingdom (No.3) & Worthily (No.14)

This race is over the 1800m. No emergency drama as I write this preview early Friday morning with already three scratchings meaning Coolth gains a start and as a result he clearly looks the horse to beat. His two run back this time in have been very good. He hit the line nicely first up at Caulfield and then was a bit of a horror watch for those that were on him here last Saturday. He landed in a lovely spot right behind the leaders which is a bit surprising for him, he isn’t normally that close. But that is where the loveliness ended. He just never got a crack at them in the straight and looked to go to the line with a fair bit to give despite only being beaten a length and a half. I like him on the quick back up here. He draws nicely for Jye McNeil down in the weights to get a lovely trailing run just off what looks a fairly solid speed and with even luck in running he should prove hard to hold out.

We had something on Kinane last start at Sandown and he looks to be building to a big run. His two runs this time in have been very good getting through the line nicely. He just hasn’t won for a long time. He obviously had a heap of potential early doors and lost his way for a while but he looks back on track for me. Up in trip on the big Flemington track with Luke Nolen on board I think a big third up run is in the offering here and as such happy to stay with him.

The one at big odds I want to have something on is Kissinger. I liked his first up effort at Warrnambool behind Tuvalu. He was never winning the race but he got through the line very nicely late in a race that wasn’t really setup for him to show his best. Second up here rising in trip on the big Flemington track and on to a drier surface I wouldn’t be surprised to see him improve sharply. Around the $20 mark he looks a good bet.

Betting strategy

I will have 3.25 Units the win on Coolth! I will have 1.25 Units the win on Kinane and 1 Unit the win on Hard Questions!

Race 8 - The Goodwood

Suggested

Bella Nipotina (No.15), Aysar (No.16) & Frankie Pinot (No.18)

Dangers

Behemoth (No.1), The Astrologist (No.8) & Extreme Warrior (No.19)

This is the big one of the day in Adelaide. It is The Goodwood over the 1200m. Gee, terribly difficult race. I think the favourite Extreme Warrior will be hard to beat, but just probably not a race I want to be backing a favourite in, even though you are getting $5-6. I am going to play a small outlay across three at decent odds.

Bella Nipotina has been racing in some of the better sprinting company this campaign and her form has been quite good leading into this. She has been competitive in an Oakleigh Plate and Sangster and the only time sh dropped out of Group One grade she was a dominant winner. I dare say this isn’t an overly strong Group One and as such she gets her chance. She is from the all conquering Maher & Eustace camp with Johnny Allen on board and I fancy she will run a big race here.

I am also with a couple of others at big odds. I can’t believe I am saying this, but I am going to have something on Aysar. It does seem a bit of a plan to have him here second up and peaking and while winning certainly hasn’t been a regular habit of his, the first up run when sitting outside the speed and only cut down late was good. He will strip fitter for that, he looks to get a good run on the map coming over and landing on speed and around the $30-40 mark I think he will give you a sight.

I also am going to have something on the Wangoom winner Frankie Pinot. He just doesn’t know how to run a bad race. That was a strong Wangoom he won, he will be back off the speed here from the middle draw and hopefully he can pick his way through the field and use that big finish and at $20-30 in a race with a host of chances I thought he was worth a ticket, but not a race where I would talk you out of backing anything, it is very wide.

Betting strategy

I will have 1 Unit the win on Bella Nipotina and 0.5 Unit the win on both Aysar and Frankie Pinot!

His two run back this time in have been very good. He hit the line nicely first up at Caulfield and then was a bit of a horror watch for those that were on him here last Saturday. He landed in a lovely spot right behind the leaders which is a bit surprising for him, he isn’t normally that close. But that is where the loveliness ended. He just never got a crack at them in the straight and looked to go to the line with a fair bit to give despite only being beaten a length and a half. I like him on the quick back up here. He draws nicely for Jye McNeil down in the weights to get a lovely trailing run just off what looks a fairly solid speed and with even luck in running he should prove hard to hold out.

We had something on Kinane last start at Sandown and he looks to be building to a big run. His two runs this time in have been very good getting through the line nicely. He just hasn’t won for a long time. He obviously had a heap of potential early doors and lost his way for a while but he looks back on track for me. Up in trip on the big Flemington track with Luke Nolen on board I think a big third up run is in the offering here and as such happy to stay with him.

The one at big odds I want to have something on is Kissinger. I liked his first up effort at Warrnambool behind Tuvalu. He was never winning the race but he got through the line very nicely late in a race that wasn’t really setup for him to show his best. Second up here rising in trip on the big Flemington track and on to a drier surface I wouldn’t be surprised to see him improve sharply. Around the $20 mark he looks a good bet.

Betting strategy

Race 8 - The Goodwood

4:17pm

Suggested

Bella Nipotina (No.15), Aysar (No.16) & Frankie Pinot (No.18)

Dangers

Behemoth (No.1), The Astrologist (No.8) & Extreme Warrior (No.19)

This is the big one of the day in Adelaide. It is The Goodwood over the 1200m. Gee, terribly difficult race. I think the favourite Extreme Warrior will be hard to beat, but just probably not a race I want to be backing a favourite in, even though you are getting $5-6. I am going to play a small outlay across three at decent odds.

Bella Nipotina has been racing in some of the better sprinting company this campaign and her form has been quite good leading into this. She has been competitive in an Oakleigh Plate and Sangster and the only time sh dropped out of Group One grade she was a dominant winner. I dare say this isn’t an overly strong Group One and as such she gets her chance. She is from the all conquering Maher & Eustace camp with Johnny Allen on board and I fancy she will run a big race here.

I am also with a couple of others at big odds. I can’t believe I am saying this, but I am going to have something on Aysar. It does seem a bit of a plan to have him here second up and peaking and while winning certainly hasn’t been a regular habit of his, the first up run when sitting outside the speed and only cut down late was good. He will strip fitter for that, he looks to get a good run on the map coming over and landing on speed and around the $30-40 mark I think he will give you a sight.

I also am going to have something on the Wangoom winner Frankie Pinot. He just doesn’t know how to run a bad race. That was a strong Wangoom he won, he will be back off the speed here from the middle draw and hopefully he can pick his way through the field and use that big finish and at $20-30 in a race with a host of chances I thought he was worth a ticket, but not a race where I would talk you out of backing anything, it is very wide.

Betting strategy

I will have 1 Unit the win on Bella Nipotina and 0.5 Unit the win on both Aysar and Frankie Pinot!
