Little spare time to run over a few interstate races and just a small interest in a few for me on the weekend.

Flemington is clearly the best track in Australia and I always love a bet there.

NOTE: Might add more before Saturday so check back in: I will add one or two from the GC after prices.

Flemington Race 3 #1 I AM SUPERMAN $7

Trials have been extremely good leading into this. Went around and run very well in better races than this. Gate isn’t ideal but Kerrin is as good as anyone and the price looks a fair play against this lot. Might have something THE HARROVIAN $4 to cover my bet, I don’t want him to be a losing result.


Flemington Race 5 #10 MUNTASERRA $5

There is a chance I just rate her too highly. I’ve always liked her and she does run well without winning a hell of a lot.  Decent form around Swat’s That last prep and that’s A-grade form these days. She went like a bomb in a recent trial and should be right in the finish. Could have just a saver to cover my bet on FABERGINO $3.70 who was good behind Nature Strip in the lightning.


Flemington Race 4 #12 LEGIONNAIRE $12/$3.80

Reckon he’s underrated and 1200m at this track fresh is a really good target. He has a nice big action and with Nugent riding will carry just 52.5kg. Should land midfield and this big tracks suits that nice action I mentioned. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t run better than the odds suggest.


Roughie: FLEMINGTON Race 9 #6 IN GOOD HEALTH $30/$8

Might be way off the mark but feel she can sit behind Greysful Glamour and Shout The Bar which would give her a lovely tow into the race and she’s a pretty good horse herself on her day. Worth throwing in exotics for a smaller % in my opinion.


Sunshine Coast Race 3 #2 SWEET DOLLY $2.20

She’s a ripper. She has one issue and it’s that she is still green. Nearly through the win away against FAKE LOVE and still did a few things wrong in her trial. If all is fair here I think she is simply a better horse than these and $2.30 is more than fair. Probably even better when she gets out over further.


Roughie: Sunshine Coast Race 9 #8 RED DOULTON $18/$4.80

Just feel this races isn’t that strong and not convinced all went to plan last prep. May have been well beaten by The Pines here last start but it’s a freak on it’s day here. This horse was still clear next best and to 1400m with a bit of tempo suits. No good thing  by any means but at very least she’s worth throwing in exotics at some value. 


Gold Coast Race 2 #6 WILLINGA PANACHE $2.80

Form down south was good and should measure up in the south east. Taking on three horses from good stables on debut but feel Schweida could have this horse ready to fire and Wolfgram rides from the good gate.

Race 4 #2 COCHRANE $2.20

Race 9 #16 SCOTTISH MIST $5
