Some Cup day selections

Just a few selections for you and mates to consider if you haven’t got time to do the form.

*Just an early guide at this stage, might be updated before raceday* Essentially just try to find a few at bigger prices.

Flemington Race 2 No.5-EAST INDIAMAN $5.50/$2

Not really one to back them ew at this price, just had a small ew bet for an interest. Fitter for the couple of runs back and fought really well last start in an easier race. Can sit up on a slow tempo to get every possible chance.


Flemington Race 3 No.2-ONE MORE TRY $9/$3

She seemed to lose her way but her last two have been very good in better grade. Oliver just needs to get the splits at the right time from the tricky gate. Best L400m and 200m of the race last start (G3 level) Looks good value here.


Eagle Farm Race 3 No.5-DAWSON DELIGHT $2.60

Just feel she is a better horse than these and it sets up well for her off a freshen to the mile. Happy to bet if $3+ available.


Eagle Farm Race 4 No.2-ENTERPRISE MOSS $3.10

Lakey stable flying and this horse just got too far back last start. Likely to go back again but Stewart can just nurse on the big track and give him last shot.


Eagle Farm Race 5 No’s 3-DIVINE ELEVEN $4.80 +++ 7-TOPLINE $9.50

Been waiting to back both these horses and they clash unfortunately. TOPLINE beaten by a handy one on debut, last start went back from a back gate and attacked the line. Nearly double figures looks wrong odds. DIVINE ELEVEN also spotted them a start in it’s race. Wobbled around the corner but also good through the line, the big EF track and 1300m looks ideal. At the prices happy to back them both.


Flemington Race 8 No.4-KIAWA $26/$7

Price just seems wrong. He promised to be a very good horse and just had a flat prep. He’s built into this prep and his last couple have been very good. A little gear change, a good gate, a jock in form and happy to have a little flutter at $26.


Flemington Race 10 No.6-BETCHA FLYING $9/$3

Very hard race to finish the day and some very nice ones will come out of this race. Just feel this filly has a hell of a lot of upside. To be fair she might be looking for a mile now but the big track will suit her down to the ground. Always strong late and Bowman should get the perfect run in transit around midfield. Want to mention MAYAASEH $26 in this, went over the line with the selection here last time, Snowden horse with upside, drops 4kg and gets winkers. $26 look well over the right price.
